Portraits Full of Passion and Style. Black and White CG.


The genre of the portrait painting is one of the most complicated. The point is that it is aimed at rendering not just the appearance of people, but their intricate inner world, their soul. It happens so often that in the portrait you can notice certain details that are not seen at a first sight when you look at a person. In such a way, his mood, his feelings are depicted on the canvas. No matter how people behave, what is their appearance, the portrait will reveal something beyond these superficial things. It is like the deep feeling of the person, the detailed look at him from some prism of comprehension. Besides, the portrait discloses not only the essence of the poser, but it also gives the idea about its creator. The artist always paints his attitude and emotions in his works. Black and white portraits are most precise, most faithful and truthful way of depicting people. They never lie and hide under the layers of colors the truth about the person. These contrasting colors make the painting rather stylish. You can read in them all the palette of emotions and moods.

 

This collection from the web consists of awesome examples of black and white CG paintings. They are all full of passion (obvious or a hidden one) and style. Hope, these aesthetic artworks will inspire you.
