One second...

Just as I was getting comfortable with a design style :-)

By now I guess the community knows how diverse my style is. Some can even say that it's all over the place, which is fine by me. But recently I wanted to try develop a style that I can call my own. It all started from this design (believe it or not) from the Disney challenge.



I was intrigued that I can come up with different tonal values and shapes from the translucent vector triangles on the background, like a watercolor painter would do. This got me all excited and I suddenly been busting out these babies ever since. In addition to this I tried to use zero to very minimal curved vector shapes on each design as a signature and a personal challenge. By the way, each design can consist between 350 - 2,000+ vector layers/shapes.



...then just like that geometric designs similar to this one were suddenly all over the place! I'm not claiming to be the one who invented this style, but I've been in the community for a while now to know that nobody else was doing it here before I was (or maybe I was just unaware). Maybe it's a design trend? I don't know. I also learned that there's an app for this style now. Great! Anyway, I'm in a sort of dilemma whether I will continue with this style or just move on. I would love to hear from you guys. Thanks! :-)

Your work looks great man. You definitely have that geometric vibe going but your high level of refinement really makes it stand apart and above from let's say a bear made of 20 triangles.

I agree with Chris, yours really stands out! The ones I'm tired of seeing are like they use a filter or something, where yours are like a painting using triangles. I'd just keep up with what you're doing and let the trend come and go.

yeah, i think you're on a totally different level as far as most of the stuff made in a similar fashion. but...having said that, your other stuff is just as rad.

i'd say start exploring and trying something different... cause we all know you are more than capable of exceeding in other styles as well.

personally i'd love to see more stuff like mr. roboto's night on the town...cause that was f'n awesome.

Yeah, I've seen this style in various iterations becoming more and more popular over the last 2 years, especially on Etsy. And of course it's true, some do it very well, you included, and others... not so much.

I'd say just do whatever you're motivated to do. I too don't like to stick to one style, as I often get bored of one look after a while... but if you're feeling like you've still got places to go with, I say why not?

Yup- yours are on a totally different level- and it's not like a difference you have to look for to see- it's like night and day upon first glance. Yours are bad ass.

Wow, thank you very much for the encouraging words. As an artist I can sometimes have a little self-doubt or maybe the competitive spirit comes out and I lose track of why I do these designs...it's because I enjoy it. And I agree that we should continue exploring new avenues and keep on evolving. You guys are awesome! :-)

I'm definitely a fan of your work. It's kick ass! Personally some of my favs are The Fawn(love the eyes), Inquisitive Owl, Perched, Our Forest Friends(all animals so cute especially the wolf&raccoon), Squirrel DJ, Geometric T-Rex, & Lying In Wait! I'm a sucker for animal designs & the styling of those pieces are brilliant! Keep em' coming! :)

Thank you very much for the encouraging words everybody! I think I'll just take a break from this style for a while. Anyway, it's still another weapon in my design arsenal ;-)
