aotd: “Ballet Sufi”

Today’s piece is from an Australian artist named Ekrem. It looks like he mainly does illustration and graphic design.

I’ve been on a roll with the watercolor work lately, I love the idea that there is some exciting work out there with this medium. The layout is great, Stella Im Hultberg uses this center composition often, and I really think it helps to draw the eye better. The colors are great, and I like how there seems to be three separate textures, ink outlines, the rendered figure and the nice billowy smoke in the back. The figure is the most captivating part for me. I love the pose, the torsion and the foreshortening really give this character so much energy.

Make sure you check out the rest of this artists gallery.
