“A Portrait of the Digital Age” by Ian Spriggs
“In creating my portraits, I look back through art history and consider how portraits were made in the past.” Ian Spriggs
The secrets behind capturing the essence of a subject in a portrait. A journey of discovery led by the one and only Ian Spriggs, world renowned 3D artist, a master in the art of digital portraits.
When there are so many sources of inspiration in this big beautiful world, it is not easy to decide which way we should let our inspiration carry us.
But when something has already been done at the state of “masterpiece”, and still fascinates us after so many decades, all that is left to be done is not reproduce it in the digital form but understand the means that stand behind the greatness of one of the most fascinating portraits in history.
With warm hands, with the artist’s paint brush sensing every emotion, all is transposed in the subject’s figure, making it come alive. The question we now have when it comes to digital portraits is: “Can something so “cold” like technology bring life and give soul?”
From the basic question “What is a portrait?” to the deeper states of digital art, (technique, lightning and composition), all the inspiration of art history awaits you!
