Black And White Art Style

My cousin makes this kind of black and white art. He doesn’t have any education in art or doing paintings or drawings. He once told me he just sits and draws whatever that comes from within. So, all he makes is really original without any copying. There are some samples on his page:

Black and white – no shading, only shape by Palatin, May 12, 2011, 8:15:38 AM Journals / Art Features

I commend all artists featured in this article and salute everybody who does pieces in this style, however the author thinks that three artists stick out in quality and quantitiy so they deserve a special mentioning:wytherwing If you are bored of colorful girls, his gallery is the place to go.

Falang She has a number of portraits that are worth seeing.GiP7 He does a great job in scenes.I hope I raised your the awareness for this style. If you happen to know or even do pieces in this style, please leave a comment!

This effect is not limited to just black and white but excels in using minimal colours.

Matt correctly identifies the style as High Contrast Art. But following the tag technique-identification – The technique frequently used to create this kind of art is Linocut.

I would think that this is high contrast art. The variance of dark and light colours is very high in that picture. While this does not fit all the styles linked it fits enough of them.

This articles features a style that may not be the most popular, but it produces very interesting art and if you are a true connoisseur is always worth a look – or maybe even a try? Well, let’s first talk about what makes this style special.

The arsenal of the artist is reduced to two main colors without any tints, shades or tones and maybe one other color to highlight important details. Black and white are the most common combinations, others are possible but there has to be a sharp contrast.

Therefore there is no real lighting or shading, everything has to be expressed by the shape. The third color is rarely used since it’s only function is to set a small highlight, together with black and white pure red seems to be a favourite.

So we are not talking about pencil drawings, they use shades of grey, nor about inked linearts, since you can add color and shading to them. The traditional art of papercutting is somewhat close, but of course using digital tools makes things different in the details.

OK, after we have established what this is about, let’s get to the pictures.Portraits:Notice that it does not take to many features to fool the human brain into recognizing real people leaving the artist many possibilities to explore a persons or (fictional) characters traits.

Also notice that the devil girl in piece number 12 is a traditional drawing on black paper.

These are very similar to notan drawings. Artists use notan drawings to quickly determine whether or not their finished painting will have an interesting pattern of dark and light values. It is a valuable tool for establishing an interesting composition in a painting. Arthur Wesley Dow wrote about notan in the 19th century. His book is out of copyright available for free download from the Internet. Notan originated in Japanese art.

Scenery:What that style gives to scenes is quite unique, although not always the same. It can create mysterious and dark moods or, if white is more dominant, can add a certain clearity – like in the first piece of the Eiffel Tower.

:thumb154135153: :thumb207355739: Abstract: The fourth piece is an example where red and black are the two main components and white acts as the third color to highlight details.:thumb195226379: Comics:Of course you can create entire comics in this style.

Here are the four best examples that I found so far. Notice how in the third piece nighttime is shown by using not white but a light grey. The last three are only pages of longer comics, go to the artists gallery to see the rest.

This is like what you see in the classic Che Guevara graphic.
