Artist Kari Nanstad works in multiple styles. I like to refer to this style as whimsical illustration. Kari often balances her illustrations against textured backgrounds. Her use of Emergence here demonstrates how it doesn’t need to be in your face. Rather, Kari used it here as one element of many. And as a result, her style shines through.
Emergence, like Kari, has a wide range of expressibility. How you use it is up to you.
You can see more of Kari’s art at her website: Kari Nanstad Fine Art.
This is the first of what I hope will become a series of Emergence users’ work. If you have utilized Emergence in your artwork and have a sample you’d like to share, send me a JPEG and a short description of how you used it and I’ll feature it here on the pixlblog.
The Emergence Brush System for Corel Painter is available for $39.95. You can purchase Emergence here.
