Levon Margaryan's landscapes

As part of their ongoing efforts within the Academy's normal curriculum, our students are encouraged to continually create during the time they're not in class even if what they're doing is not directly related to the assignments they're working on. Such is the case with Levon Margaryan.

Although Levon is studying Character Design, he finds the time to create these enchanting background images. Click on the artwork for a better view.

Levon bases his compostions upon some of the places he's visited during his travels. He imbues his artwork with a surreal atmosphere by using white or colored paint on black paper, sometimes touching it up with color pencils. The magical touch he gives his work also involves his skillful use of a dry brush technique in certain instances. His activity in this area will be very useful once he moves into Visual Development, and will also help in diversifying his presentation as he further develops his portfolio.
