Find cool art and feel like sharing, but don't want it to go to waste in LMAO pictures nor be banned for not posting your own work in a creative thread? By popular demand, This thread now exists! Think of it as LMAO pics, but for awesome works of art. Photography, pencil sketches, grass arranged in the shape of the Mona Lisa, whatever, so long as it's interesting. Rules: • Can't be yours • CAN be your friend's (if they're not on FP; they'll post in a proper thread if they want to show stuff off) • Try to provide information, like a link to their gallery, artist name, etc. • Don't just dump random pictures you found on a blog. Flooding is stupid and can ruin the look and feel of each individual piece as they're sandwiched and overshadowed. To start off, I'll note my old friend Armene, a Russian photographer/stylist who tends to have a surreal look on things. Used to talk to her on DeviantArt a few years back, not much at all as of late.

So she is Russian? Her works are great. Where in Russia she lives exactly?

My mate took pictures at friends' gig the other night. He's not the best photographer in the world but I think his stuff certainly trumps the shit the 'official' photographer of the night was pumping out (way over-exposed black and white cliched crap): [img]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs694.snc4/63437_10150339563550431_563215430_16027922_7310310_n.jpg[/img] [img]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1369.snc4/164102_10150339568265431_563215430_16028074_952829_n.jpg[/img] [img]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs393.ash2/67101_10150339570115431_563215430_16028146_7452232_n.jpg[/img] [i]The Shang Highs[/i] - 19/12/2010 [b]Photographer:[/b] Andrew Carson [url]http://www.flickr.com/photos/53727973@N08/[/url] Actually now I think of it the stuff on his Flickr are probably higher quality photographs in terms of composition n stuff, but I don't think that the majority are as interesting as the stuff of the band. I'm sure I'd be able to relay and polite and constructive critiques to him. Oh actually stuff from the World Lacrosse Tournament was better: [img]http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4127/4972119135_2c6e1db29a_b.jpg[/img]

I've always wondered where this pic came from. Can't even remembered where I got it. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4565878/theairiselectric.jpg[/img]
This piece by Kanex of GFXartist.com has been one of my favourite 3D pieces. I love the style of character. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/BaBrl.jpg[/IMG]

This guy, [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/louislanderdeacon/]Louis Lander Deacon[/url], used to go to my school and is actually an amazing photographer. (He disabled sharing, so i can't display any of his work!)
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/olkaprod/]David Olkarny[/url], his style is all over the place, but he's pulled off some good stuff.

A common problem with female characters: the balance between sexuality and personality. The chest says it's a dude, and the ass is really exaggerated. Still, gorgeous modelling and texturing.
