While you can always see posts on my sketches which often includes a bit more in-depth coverage on my process and workflow along with time-lapse videos, here is a quick snapshot of my most recent work (that I’m proud of).
Ha! You scrolled down. Why, thank you very much and welcome to my site, unigon, dedicated to everything lovely and beautiful and sublime and otherwise about unicorns, dragons, and more.
My name is Ward W. Vuillemot, and I’m arguably an amateur artist with a passion for all things fantastical. I say arguably as it is questionable if I am at best amateur; I consider myself very much at the (re)start of a very long, lifelong even, journey. What I lack in skill, I hope I make up for with passion!
While I’ve been doing illustrations for as long as I can remember, I put down the proverbial pen and brush after leaving high school some two plus decades ago. In the past few years, I’ve started to re-explore this latent passion. You will find on this site a mix of my own work, along with posts on things I find useful as an aspiring digital artist looking to learn his craft.
Given that I’m very much looking to bootstrap myself leveraging readily available materials on the internet or otherwise in print, I thought it would be useful to share with folks things I’ve discovered that I’ve thus far found useful.
If you are looking for resources such as websites, tools, or even artists I think are excellent examples – at least to me – to emulate then I recommend you read through my Artist Resources series of blog posts.
I am, by no stretch of the imagination, a master artist. That said, I find that taking the time to synthesize my understanding of various fundamentals such as color, light, values, shape, human anatomy, et cetera is a useful way for me to further learn, and in the process I hope to give back to others who are starting on this same journey. I’ve started a new series of Art Fundamentals which I hope to continue to add to, if for no reason than to affirm to myself that I’m actually keeping up with my studies.
While I should be spending more time doing art, I sometimes find it useful to instead while away my time writing about doing art; it’s a disguised form of procrastination! Nevertheless, below are the 5 most recent posts I’ve made regardless of topic or category. Enjoy! Or click here to see all my posts.
