Tony Skeor is a digital artist based in Kiev, Ukraine. Currently working on the Adventure & Adventure video game project “My Eyes On You” at Storymind Entertainment as Artistic Director.
Discovery of this young Ukrainian digital artist, co-founder of Storymind Entertainment.
He tells us about his sources of inspiration, his technique and his work as a source of inspiration for other artists.
Cyberpunk as inspiration
I am always inspired by the works of many great digital artists that I am.
I like to discover their working methods and try to learn by adding my own techniques and approaches.
My visual style is mainly inspired by classic cyberpunk and neo-black movies, nightlife in big cities, industrial places, atmospheric music.
I combine these things in my head to create works of art from my heart.
I would like to separate my portfolio into two parts. The first is a concept art for the game world “My Eyes On You” which is still being developed by our studio Storymind Entertainment.
In this universe, we focus on the alternative Chicago that has been completely taken up by Italian carnival culture and tourism.
The second part is my personal works that I create in my spare time.
I am developing my own cyberpunk universe centered on a city or region, so there are more to come.
I often use a combination of two or three different techniques, mainly 3D blocking, photo-recording and painting.
In my search for perfection I try to conceive realistic illustrations, but with the pictorial aspect and how many incredible things can be done by combining these 3 methods.
My favorite software is 3D Coat to block and Photoshop to paint.
My work for others
People say that they like my works because they bring them to a different world covered with bright colors, neon lights and futuristic cities. So I guess that’s it.
I would be very happy to know that some artists do awesome things inspired by what they saw in my works.
I think that’s what’s really great in today’s digital art world – inspire each other to create incredible works of art!
