Copy an Artist

*Style does not belong to me.
Style belongs to Juan Carlos of Jotaka Illustration
The image referenced below is The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli

Another gem from a year ago in that same illustration class!

This was another exercise we had to do. This time we had to copy the style of another artist and then use that style to recreate a well-known painting.

I had a lot of fun with this assignment, however it was an uphill struggle with this one. First of all, The Birth of Venus is an extremely detailed painting to begin with and capturing all the details took more time than I originally planned for. Second, trying to mimic someone else’s style was difficult as well. I constantly found myself looking back for references making sure the body, the facial features, and the coloring style still followed the illustrator’s style. In the end I got pretty close, but there are still a couple of things I forgot to capture with Juan Carlos’ style.
