The Art Of Dentyou

The artist called Dentyou definitely chose to remain anonymous, sharing not much other than a selection of gorgeous environmental illustrations and his land of residence, Tokyo. What struck me about his work was his bold usage of colors and an excellent eye for lighting, texture and shapes, allowing him to imply a ton of detail without much effort.

If there's one thing I've learned after painting for a few years in the digital format, it's easy to get bogged down in over rendering, the true difficulty lies in being economical with your brush strokes. Dentyou's work nearly looks effortless, but the apparent simplicity is deceptive, which is kind of funny in a way. Whereas some artists think that tons of detail is the key when it comes to painting environments, it's an easy way to sink yourself in a treacherous render loop if you're not careful. Check out more of his work after the break!
