The Art Of Real Sonke

Real Sonke (Aka Ivan) is a Russian concept artist and illustrator, who uses a really cool hybrid 2D/3D workflow to create some rather stunning pieces. Over the last few years 3D has become an essential component of concepting, with tools like Google's Sketchup and Pixologic's Zbrush allowing artists to become ever more efficient and higher the quality bar with their work.

Mixed with Ivan's incredibly painterly style, the result of  the heavy traditional emphasis in most Russian curriculum's for art students, this hybrid style is pretty innovative, especially considering that we initially couldn't tell if 3D was used. You can check out his Youtube channel for a 3 part making of his pirate composition, which you can check out after the break!
