When you design, it is crucial to think of how the content will look like, and artworks do in many ways influence how your interface will be designed. You always look for that “extra” little thing. It’s that element of iconic representation and ultimate style that makes you want to go that extra mile about your design. If there are artists/designers that positivily influence the way you think about design, please leave a comment and add your suggestions. I’d be happy to check out your favorites!

    Can’t be more true. I cant remember a day i woke up a morning without going around the hundreds Artist/Designer website links i have before even starting working. Watching around like a sponge, absorbing inspiration these people can give with their work.

    I dont have any personnal artist/designer… and the list would be too long. Since its “Amazing Character Designs That Will Inspire You” i will go Ballistic Publishing link with Exotiques books from 1 to 4 hehe. Can’t go wrong with that. Every single pages are exciting to watch

    http://www.ballisticpublishing.com/books/exotique_4/

    Exotique 5 is calling for entries !!

    • Meng To says:

      You should definitely name a couple of names! ;)

      Exotique is really cool — I’ve always wanted to get myself one of those. Also, I noticed that Mario is on there, that’s awesome. He’s so talented. I’ll definitely gather more pieces from other amazing artists. :)

        if i go into naming people, ill dont stop hehe. You know, im still a big fan of Miyagu and Enayla. I just love realistic painting pieces.

        if you want a list, ill just open my expose books and write every single names down hehe

    Well, not that i dont like Mario work cause he is one really amazing artist. But if only he wasnt doing always the same kind of faces. Its making the character look distant.. totally numb. I just think hes characters lack of expression… but ya, its to be picky. Cause he have amazing piece of art

    • Meng To says:

      That’s an interesting observation. I guess it’s one way to see it. As for me, I don’t really think it’s a noticeable drawback, although it would be interesting to see him try more facial expressions.

    I’ve been searching for this precise information on this topic for a while.  Bookmarked and recommended!

  7. Great article. There’s a lot of solid information here, though I did want to let you know something – I am running Ubuntu with the up-to-date beta of Opera, and the design of your website is kind of rakish for me. I can understand the articles, but the navigation doesn’t function so great.
