I really do like this piece: http://terriblyartistic.tumblr.com/post/1725156356/im-going-to-start-posting-some-of-my-favorite-art
However I think you should of credited your inspiration, which I'm guessing was this: http://paperboogie.deviantart.com/art/The-City-59472962 ?
It's been one of my favorite pieces for quite some time so I recognized it instantly.
hello again, wow amazing, so what do you use to colour it, is it just simple watercolours.
i also agree, on some level, that using quotes in artistic work can limit the interpretation, however it gives the drawing more meaning and i often find that i can stem drawings from the saying.
you are obviously a very imaginitive person and your artwork reflects that, you show alot of natural talent, as well as very well developed artisticskill!
yup just plain old watercolor. Cheap as the crayola box it came in. =}
hi, ready for a compliment sandwich?
so, your artistic style is very distinct and well developed,
but i absolutely disagree with the idea of using song lyrics and words to describe what you're trying to portray on the picture--you should leave room for interpretation instead of pointing the interpretations out.
but, you are really really talented and i love everything else about your art
i hope you take this as constructive criticism and take it to heart. i love what you do and i really hope that you stop the words thing because you have a lot of potential.
also i thought about posting this anon but i decided to be ballsy and not in case you want to reply in my ask box instead of posting this, because it's ok if you wanna keep this private.
No, no, no, thank you so much for the criticism. And i think other people should hear this too because i bet they’ve noted the same thing. The reason why all my art, the ones that i post anyway, have lyrics is because they are my own personal art. Like i keep them for myself, and i draw them because i need to clear my mind. So the lyrics are done because they really strike a chord with me. For art that i do for other people, or art that i do for my classes, or contests, are more interpretational. I worry sometimes that they words degrade my art and make it…less professional, but then i just remind myself, my art is just for me, it’s just going to stay in my drawing notebook.
Thanks again, im glad you were brave enough to tell me :}
What if the whole Harry Potter series was an entire dream? Like, Harry actually was in a car accident with his parents, both of which died, and he was in a coma. The whole wizarding world was all in his his mind. The people in his dream were people he actually knew in real life (Like Ron and Hermoine were his best friends, Dumbledore was his grandfather, Snape was like his mean neighbor or something, etc).
So very few things my teacher says in my psychology class strike as much of a chord as this did.
Answer the questions I’m going to ask you.
1. Do you own an ipod/iphone/laptop/costly luxury item etc
2. Now consider you’re standing by a train track watching a runaway trolley. The trolley can either go down one of two tracks. On one track sits your luxury item, we’ll call it an ipod, on the other track sits a child unable to move. It is your responsibility to pull the lever to send the trolley down one of the tracks, crushing either the child or the ipod. What would you pick?
most of us would say we’d send the trolley down the track that would crush the ipod, saying a child’s life is more important than that stupid ipod. Even further we’d be morally disgusted with anyone who truthfully said they’d kill the child.
consider this. that was just a hypothetical situation. How many of you actually have an ipod. For the $200, average cost, it would literally save a real persons life if you had just donated the money. You allowed a child to die because you bought the ipod. Simple as that. But who’s really mad at the person with the real ipod, we’re still pissed at the guy who HYPOTHETICALLY said he’d kill the child.
I realized this was me. I was pissed at the guy who said he’d pull the lever on the kid, as i was texting someone about this on my $200 phone. My teacher said it’s becaus with the train tracks, you see the kid get murdered. When you buy that ipod you don’t see who you’re saving.
So this is just another case of if vision is our only validation, then what are we REALLY seeing?
