it's a cat
Trying to sketch out a half sleeve focused around the Japanese style - koi, lotus' etc.
I am having real difficulty getting the perspective of the flowers right, could any one perhaps give me some tips or direct me to a nice guide somewhere?
TEEN DEER oil on canvas, 16X24
Some proportions are off, but they were kinda hard to fix :I
might not be done yet I dunno
sad deer boy is sad
he doesnt like having antlers :(
his antlers make him look like young jesus or something
The clavicle is the first thing that struck me as odd but other than that it's an amazing effort for oils. I'm too scared to even attempt an oil painting, I love how the background wraps around his shoulders though :)
Haha I love this.
Whenever I see the whole antler boy I can't help but think of the music video to 'Sugar we're going down'.
When your painting on canvas do you sketch first or paint straight on?
Referring to the guy who posted his music, I had no idea music counted as something we can post in this thread. Mind If I post some things I made?
Not gonna lie, I'm pretty disappointed to see that character appearing again instead
I didn't wanna go all out and invent the wheel again, I have never touched paint before and doing something I was familiar with was hard enough.
Was it all wet on wet or did you do any layering?
I have stopped taking shit from people who disagree with what I draw, I have been battling this with you guys for a year now, and I'm growing tired of it. My art is varied, but it seems like every time I do something that is only for my liking, someone has to comment on it. Wouldn't it be funny if I disagreed every time anyone here drew a pretty girl, because jeez, people seem to be doing that a lot.
But I guess that's ok. Girls are hot right
right down your alleys
Nice painting detlef
Today I painted a japanese monkey from ref.
The lasso tool is great fun.
and this boy, from imagination.
Something I did today for my senior project and as a test for coloring in Photoshop; first time, so yeah. :/
I'm not trying to "battle" you, or get on a bandwagon with anyone else concerning your art, it's just my opinion that naturally occurred to me. I'd like to see you branch out, not because I'm sick of seeing you draw a similar set of pretty boys, but because oils afford new ways of thinking and working and as someone who enjoys what you do I would like to see the kind of thing you would produce if you jumped in at the deep end as it were.
Also you sound like a broken record about this girls thing. It's not like everyone is doing similar work to everyone else in that department, and anyone who is only doing the same type of thing over and over should change it up, regardless of subject matter. Teshok springs to mind, he only draws samey action chicks and I have no desire to see any more of them.
I do draw diffident stuff, its just that I have a preference like anyone else here. Are you seriously ignoring all the other stuff I draw?
I seriously don't see the problem.
it feels more like pretty boys are kinda what most people see and make the biggest deal out of, and to offset that you'd have to draw more of other things.
I honestly don't see why anyone has a problem with what you're drawing. It's your choice what you draw, other people should accept that.
First off, gee I don't know maybe he doesn't feel like he can give it justice by colouring it himself, or doesn't have a tablet or good mouse skills.
Second, instead of giving it real criticism you just instantly attack the fact she's been drawing that one character a lot recently. God damnit just shut up and be helpful for once.
I feel like I'm overreacting a bit but you really need to sort it out.
What's wrong with "pretty boys" ?
I don't get it.
they lack boobs
Anyone wanna give me some cc on this wip? Still gotta do the glasses and stuff
Composition of the text is off; title placement should be rethought, tagline 'I simply respect the chemistry' is too tightly bordered above and below
You've got a very outward-pointing composition with Walt looking straight at us and the title text is extruded upwards to give a 3d effect - I dislike this dual perspective applied to different elements
The whole composition needs thinking about
You've got a big, chunky space either side of the round-bottle-thing but at the top you've got a teeny tiny space. Feels really tight and uncomfortable.
Text at the bottom is too close to the outside of the poster. Almost falling off the edge.
Can't help but thinking that the bottle-neck sticking out the top of Walt's head looks a bit strange.
Focal point (I'm taking it as being his forehead, given that's where the most contrast is) is too high up in the image.
how is this pic?
is it better from what i have posted before
E: btw, thanks maloof, I'll work on fixing it up a bit but I'm not good with text and whatnot so I don't really know or see anything wrong with how it is right now at least, but I'll see what I can do. Im gonna see if a different shaped bottle would work better.
Also, nice painting Detlef, its really nice for your first time with oils (I suggest you try acrylics too btw).
First off, finding out if there's a legitimate reason he doesn't want to try it himself is the first step to putting him on the path to being more artistic. Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he'll never go hungry. Plus, a man can speak for himself.
Second, I wasn't attacking her, over that or over anything. I wrote a second, mediating post to try to explain that.
In the end, if you want to read me like a cunt and say I'm never helpful or out to get everyone, it's your problem. I don't try to get anyone riled up. Hell, I've thought you're a pretty shitty poster from what I've seen of you in the past as well, but you're not some troll or anything, so I really have no reason to care or say anything about it. It's not as though it inconveniences me in any way.
Peace and love and shit
