Expressive and vibrant illustration by Alexis Marcou
The illustration skills development had the same hard work road, what sustain idea that a talent without work is nothing, evolving in time from basic shading and errors in proportions to more complex designs. The levels of shading have increase and he started to introduce more color. After that was time to introduced more shattered and distorted lines which have their influence at cubism. What we can say looking at the following great pieces of art, is that already get an own style, pleasant, non repetitive, refreshing. There’s a visceral quality to Alexis Marcou’s sketch-style illustration work that really speaks of his ability to capture a living moment with his pencil, creating traditional fine arts pieces with a slight digital touch-up.
