Inspiring Artist

An artist I look to for inspiration is Stephen Wiltshire. I first discovered Stephens work while browsing YouTube for inspiration. He was drawing Rome from memory on a 10-meter long canvas. I can safely say I will not be doing work like that any time soon, however, his impressive attention to detail drives me. I would like to translate that attention to detail into my work. I have a hard time finishing a sketch because it is never good enough, so a lot of the time my pictures get scrapped. I haven’t drawn in quite some time, but I have recently been inspired to try again. Now that I can combine my passion for computer technology with my artwork I believe that I can achieve the desired effect in my work.

I found a digital artist after some exploring whose art is in line with my ideas, highly detailed and architectural. He uses a mixture of programs from 3ds max to Photoshop to create his art. While I have limited experience in 3ds I still find it to be a useful tool for creating 3d images with high detail.  Wabbit art has a mechanical, steam punk, and fantasy like appearance. I am inspired by his ability to create, render, and post touch images to make them appear that much better.  I wonder how these images a created, how is it that someone can achieve such high detail. Is it a good understanding of the software, talent, or both? I would like to try rendering an image from 3ds, however, I will have to do that on my own time. For my final project I feel inspired to do something involving Appleseed, whether direct or indirect. I would like to create a piece of artwork from scratch. I will use the artistic anime styling, high detail and futuristic mech look. The use of multiple programs my help me to achieve my final goal.
