Hey everyone I'm new to this site, so I thought I'd say hello... And share some random art.
A random Sketch of a friend as a joke...
Some unfinished cover art
More to come I'm sure...
: Isn't even a really good website or anything...
It doesn't have to make sense!
Sorry, do I need to put a "/sarcasm" at the end of my posts?
Try thinking someone rippin open their head and letting out the bull shit...
Or try thinking out side the box... :P
Or even better, you have to know what's inside the box before you can venture outside of it.
Now to put on the grumpy meanie hat: Nothing here is outside of the box. It looks like very poorly rendered monster skribbles almost every pub'ing boy scrawls at some point. And before you say it, don't try to pull the style card, it's one used by very many new artists who really don't have a concept of what style really means. And like 99.9% of the population, you must to learn what is good, fundamental, and sound art, before you can venture into style.
Also, do not take this in any way to mean that I am an expert artist preaching down to you. I'm very much on the uphill of the talent mountain.
I wanna know more about the box. I will devote my life to it and redefine my art skills along the way...
Edit: I hate you
Oh and also shiboe speaks the truth
andddddddd... No.... there is no more, and... Your energetic about art take a class for it, then you'll be like "ohh my gawd I hate these assignments and these teachers are annoying i'm to good for this" GOD I HATE THOSE PEOPLE. Then you'll consume half of your time doing little design things and.
A.) Become someone who writes there names on things or.. "tagging" in a way whatever bombing tagging, the lazy one where people put there name on or.
B.) you'll drop art altogether
C.) if you like anime you'll be that guy who sits there and talks about anime in the beginning art classes and don't concentrate on the subject matter making my life horrible and staying in those classes to carry on the tradition of ruining everyones lives because your to busy talking about damn anime and not actually learning about the material I thought it would end when I whent to college I really did animeanimeanineaimainaime
OMG How did you know that about me! It's truly amazing.... Your wisdom has shed light on my life...
I Must Become A Box Like You....
BTW, I don't hate you in fact I love worship and admire you now!
Seriously though dude, try not to get offended, the peeps here are only trying to help you. If you pay attention to what they're saying your art will improve in leaps and bounds. It's easy to get pissy when your baby get's called ugly, but if it is, that's what it get's called and getting fucked off about it isn't going to make it any better.
Dude, this reminds me of someone in my class. He always talks about anime and pokemon games. Plus he has a fetish for drawing pregnant bunny people.
It's because there's no structure to the thing. Where's the balance/movement/tension/focal point? Is it symmetrical or asymmetrical? These things are important in creating a cover, and it looks like the OP just scribbled some stuff down on a page, applied a weak color job to the thing at called it a day.
It's just a big fat mess, and honestly the OP has been getting it really easy in this thread.
This will be my moto from now on.
Would it help to impress you with the fact that I drew that with 6 other a4 ink sketches in a 3 hours at 5 am waiting for a file to upload?
While harsh Godfather is right, you don't have to be "loopy" to understand your art. Because there's really no "method to your madness". Look at Jackson Pollock. His art you might be able to say has hidden messages about fear and insanity, but at the same time he has structure to his art.
Listen to what some people are saying.
Shiboe's quote above pretty much hits the mark.
My Portfolio Site
It would impress me if you started realizing how horrible it is and started practicing
I understand your reasoning behind this saying this, and it's true. But it's also true that it's the worst type of advice the OP could hear. He/ or she really needs to start looking at drawing like it is an exact science, and nothing else.
How line variation works, grasping bone and muscle structure, studying and practicing from life, sketching gestures, improving composition, understanding color theory, and how light is refracted on a surface. There is a certain science to all this. Once it is understood, that is when expression can be formulated and communicated in a visually appealing way.
It is clear pepzi has little to no understanding of any of this, and the work is about as visually unappealing as it could be. You will never improve without looking at art like a science. If continuing to draw scratchy doodles and cartoons is all that you want to do, than more power to you. There is nothing wrong with that.
But if actual improvement and understanding is to be reached, coddling the artist with, oh it's just an expression is just a terrible thing to do. It's not just an expression and the sooner you start looking to improve your technique the better.
^Advise to listen too.
Obviously this dude is a joker.
Art is not magical. Not everything is art.
Me please! What's on the menu? :P
Wholeheartedly agreed. Really tired of the elongated explanation why any art has some deep special meaning as long as the artist is willing to be obscure and detailed when he explains why shit on a canvas isn't actually shit, but a special and unique snowflake. Too many people caught up in the egotistical side and forcing their own expression on a medium that should speak for itself, while ignoring the actual quality of the art. The longer and more convoluted the explanation, the better the art! Eh?
Nice Batman reference...
