UNTITLED STARES by MJTILLUSTRATION UNTITLED STARES by MJTILLUSTRATION
Digital. Personal project focusing on everday interactions between people which usually go by unnoticed.

Kind of a breakthrough piece I think.

EDIT: Whoa a DD! Thanks so much for the support everyone! More work in this style to come in the next few months! <3

If I didn't know better, I'd have thought they were photographs. Stunning detail and realism in the faces, emotions and fabric. Also, only one spot with colour really makes the grandfather-granddaughter pair striking, like Schindler's List, but in a happy way, and their expressions (even though I can't see the girl's face, I know what it's like, amazing talent that you have) makes them stand out in the dreary grey.

Beautiful work. MORE~!

Wonderful style, use of color, and face shaping alike. I don't think this was intentional, but the title from a distance read "United States" to me.

Thanks! I have been drawing since I was 6 and I got my graduate degree at Savannah College of Art and Design majoring in Illustration. This technique, however, I developed after I got out of the program.

The scene as whole looks ordinary but the way you captured each and every one of their expressions and poses brings this picture to life and is quite something to behold! Congrats on the DD! It's well deserved!

Amazing how you have captured the people's different yet somehow similar expressions, even the held girl that we cannot see.  Amazing work.

AAAGH THIS IS SO GOOOOOD! I love especially that I can see the little girl's expression but I don't see her face at all. It's in her body and it's so life-like.

That means a lot actually. As an artist, thats what I am always aiming for: something to evoke a deep reflection of everyday moments. Its the little things in life, you know? <3

Very interesting concept. The girl in red is supposed to be the eyecatcher but acutally it's the ghostly girl besides her. Love it!
