And now for something completely different: the figure drawing and background artwork of Pegah Arabi. It’s done in a painterly style. Some of the portraits are in black and white. Look at the proportions and light and shadow! I have a lot to learn about drawing necks…

Another of the stunning artists from Linked!n. Her work is also magical rooftops and cityscapes, but it’s completely different in feel than Camila Nogueira’s. The colour palettes are different, the style is less rigorously technical, and it feels friendly and small-scale, showing quiet moments in peoples’ lives.

Camila Nogueira is a Portuguese illustrator, one of the artists I found on LinkedIn. Some of Camila’s works show the rooftops and alleys of fantastic cities, but others show fantasy landscapes and floating buildings. The style is a fusion of technical illustration and magical realism. And the colours are stunning. And apparently some of the artworks are of real places…?
I recently dreamed in Camila’s drawing style…
