Noodle – Rodrigo Rivas

Why did you pick this picture?

I chose this picture because I think it represents very well where my art inspiration is from ( pop culture,comic, digital painting, manga artstyle) , and the direction I want to take it from now on.

Where did the idea for this art come from?

2017 was a big year for the band Gorillaz because of their return, and Noodle´s new character design (she became an adult) was really cool for me. I do really admire Jamie Hewlett’s work and his art journey to find a really unique voice in his worlds and characters. Someday I really want to be able to pursue an art style as unique and vibrant as his.

What does this art mean to you?

I’d say it means progress in my art work. It is one of the latest illustrations of a project i made in January. That month I made 1 daily portrait illustration and I think since then I became a little better in regards of digital color art tecniques and composition rules. I still have a REALLY big amount of stuff to learn, though!

What can you tell us about yourself?

I am 22 years old, i love concept art, manga, comics and beauty of classical paintings. I’ve just finished art college ( graphic design degree) and i feel overwhelmed with an entire world of knowledge and possibilities in the start of my art proffesional career.

What more can you tell us about your art?

Right now i’d say I am an ”omnivore”. I’m trying to change drastically in tecnique,artstyle and color palettes from work to work, to really push myself to the next step and be able to make some awesome pieces. From traditional to digital or greyish to really saturated colors or academic drawing style to manga style. You can say that I’m always experimenting.My art goal is to someday be able to tell a really big story that could reach a lot of different people
