Currently I'm working on a digital illustration using a figure as landscape.
I have a lot of different tastes when it comes to this type of thing, however, one artist who grasps this concept in particularly interesting way is Endling from Deviantart. He has a tendency to draw his characters upfront with either a blank or detailed background. In fact, a lot of my inspiration stems from his work.
|Attention Whore: Endling|
|Assembly Req'd.: Endling|
My intention was not to completely replicate the two pieces but merely get a grasp on how they're done. Note that these are really rough and I intend to add adjustments to details and anatomy issues later. I have a tendency to use my characters in a lot of my work as well, I have to admit that Endlings twisted nature has been a big influence for me throughout the years, and it shows up from time to time.
