I create male characters that almost magically seem to have attained a life of their own. They appear realistic because they were created using 3D digital art techniques.
The foundation I start with for creating men is to show respect for masculinity. I’m convinced that it is essential to demonstrate admiration and awe for masculinity if you are going to take the time to express yourself visually or artistically on the subject of men.
One valid criticism of many digital illustrations is that the faces of the characters often all look alike or look bland like robot faces. This is not true of my work. I go the extra distance when creating my character faces to make sure they look like men who could exist in our world.
The men that I create show emotion on their faces and in their body language. Some digital illustrators depict characters who look robotic or who lack emotional value. I deliberately jump in the opposite direction so that my characters vividly demonstrate very clear emotions.
Here are representative samples of my work in the development and creation of a wide diversity of male characters:
