    Ah, I didn't mean to derail the thread, sorry.

    Beav I think a zombie you would be more scary if maybe the flesh from one cheek were gone.

    Kinkade is the lighting master. One day I want to paint just like him.

    As a senior prank last year someone at my art school set every faculty member's desktop to that exact kinkade painting. It was magic. Also, I am totally buying your holiday cards and sending them to my steam friends. <3

    Digging the self portrait too.

    Rob is a guy that is generally exuberant about his work. There is some "I'll sick my lawyers on you" when it comes to "slander" and questions of pay. But in general, he loves comics, and is the type of person its hard to be mad at. He still gets work, becuase he has money and can fund himself, hes easy to work with, and is popular. Popular>good.
    Style trumps substance. Comics certainly aren't the only entertainment field where the good get ignored while the awful are wildly popular. A brief look at the top 10 charts of music, daily TV, and Twilight in the box office should make that pretty obvious.

    Much of Rob's attacks on good taste are from the early 90's. Leifield, Silverstri, McFarlane. It started as a bit of a "high energy" revolution from the more static, and better drawn art that was dominant prior. Kick ass became wildly popular over looking good.

    Rob has never gotten better. Deadlines are major issue with comics, and alot of his more god awful stuff, can be partially attributed to, "I need to draw this page in 1 hour". There is something to be said about having to do something like that, in 1 hour, then having people make fun of you for 20 years after about it.
    In some sense, its not fair. on the other hand. He hasn't gotten better. If he didn't still make the same shitty mistakes, people would be more forgiving.

    you absolutely cannot chalk his problems up to deadlines. it takes no longer to draw a properly shaped body than an improperly shaped body, IF you understand basic anatomy. the dude does NOT get a pass for "tight deadlines"

    The answer is probably no.

    Then again if I were making a living from it would I want to be good? The answer in that case would be yes.

    So you have to ask yourself, do I have a point here? The answer is most definately not.

    I don't feel the same way as him, but I can see it from his perspective. He's having a really fun time drawing what he likes to draw and he made a shitload of money doing it. What would learning anatomy really get him at this point, except the respect of his peers? He obviously doesn't care about that, and I can't really see why he SHOULD care about that. He's got fans, he's got money, he's got a family, and he has the time of his life drawing shit how he wants to draw it.

    i don't mind the derailment guys, it's an interesting debate. and one that i personally think is a huge point that should be talked about here in this forum.

    i kind of agree with both sides
    if you're happy and doing what you love for a living, great
    on the other hand... young artists are looking up to him, and i think he's a terrible role model.

    but i mean... that's life! young people look up to lots of shitty people, they hopefully reach the stage where they push beyond that.

    Ha. I don't think anyone looks up to him.
    (And if you do, I could give you links to about a million other artists you should be aware of.)

    But artist hating comes up alot on forums. It's naive, and alot easier to do, when you have no experience working professionally, and therefor have no real understanding of all the aspects of working a job.
    Art is a skill. And even if you want to create the best work ever, you still need to learn how to do so. And producing artwork is not building a TV. Each and every piece presents new challenges.
    Working professionally takes it to another level, where you have time constraints, and editorial constraints.
    I've personally have had MANY pieces I consider gutted, because my client wanted something other then what I had envisioned, and created.
    These may not apply to Liefield, sure.

    The saying, people living in glass houses, shouldn't throw stones applies.
    Burning bridges also, not a good idea.
    I would rather spend time, talking about what people do that is great, then waste my time on what I think isn't.
    He makes a good deal of money with his art. Good for him.

    Lets all talk about how awesome Sean Gordon Murphy is instead.
    Or Alexandria. :mrgreen:

    nautilus_3.jpg

    nautilus_4.jpg

    it's a nautillus constructed out of white cardstock
    it's part of my final project for sculpted forms, i'm making 49 more of these little dudes and suspending them in front of this 9 foot tall, 6 foot wide white sheet.
    one of them is going to be hunter orange
    so all but the orange one blend into their surroundings.
    then you can pull the white sheet aside and behind it is a hunter orange sheet, so the whole thing changes, the 49 white ones stand out and the orange one blends into his surroundings.

    it's called natural selection.
    i'm doing an installation how art school is that?
    i made it about science though
