Klammyxxl, come out and play, sweetie. It doesn't really help much if you rate me without expression your opinion.
[img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5248/5284998586_1cb98ba7d0_z.jpg[/img] stolen from LMAO pics. Can't find any info on it, though, tineye comes up blank.
Tineye doesn't come up with a lot of things.
I got a few obvious favourites like Bosch but one arty I've never been able to find the maker for is this NSFW image. I'll warn you its probably the most amazing and revolting image you'll see in a lifetime. This drawing inspired me to start drawing. The lighting, colours and anatomy are perfect, theres nothing about this drawing I'd change. [url=http://sadpanda.us/images/319659-5MEB7WU.jpg]NSFW[/url] If anyone can help me find out who did that I'd be greatful.
[QUOTE=onox37;26910829]dgg, that picture with the space guy is indescribably badass.[/QUOTE] It is.

Didn't find the source, but Tineye found a more hi-res version of it at least. [url]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3655193/0041b8h8.jpg[/url] Artist found! Was hanging out on Conceptart.org (searched "Hannes vs Jana" as it says down in the corner, first thread, went to homepage on OP's profile dropdown menu, sent to DA account) [url]http://janaschi.deviantart.com/[/url]
jewdozer, what schooling do you have with your art anyways? I know you're big with your anatomy and the like but I would like to see what you could do with photoshop brushes rather MS paint.

That picture really isn't that revolting, I feel robbed and raped now that I thought it was worse.

Thanks to dgg and co for sourcing that image, I've been wanting an id on that for a good year but never saw the sig on the smaller version I have. Looking through his other work is amazing. Many thanks again for the assist. In answer to Dai on the photoshop, I've tried messing around with PS and have brushed up some of my better drawings to see what they turn out like. The result left me feeling empty as pixel art is literally what the artist has created with pixels rather than shortcuts using custom brushes and techniques. Nothing wrong with using PS but the art always has to be fulfilling for the artist. Training? I just draw what I see and get better with time, no training.
I always feel amazing after I create something beautiful in Photoshop. Gives me a feeling of pride, not emptyness. But hey, everybody is different. We know that.
Acrylic paintings.. [img]http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/074/b/f/Dalliance_by_ja5on.jpg[/img] [img]http://th01.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2010/119/f/6/The_X_Statix_by_ja5on.jpg[/img] Yes, you heard right.

What?! But, looking at the unfocused parts I can see it. Crazy shit.
Those have to be pictures or 3D renders.
Holyshit my colours never stay that bright when I use acrylics. I've seen that first one on DA before- blew my mind then and it still does.
My god. I really don't get to see the acrylic painting-ness in the foreground. :aaa:

[QUOTE=daijitsu;26957662]as a subject, yes it is uninteresting, but the technical aspect of the painting is awe inspiring.[/QUOTE] I know people who are not even teenagers yet who can rival that painting in 'awe inspiring technical aspects'
It would have been a lot cooler if the poles were human beings.
:geno: You still taking that painting as a bunch of poles and nothing deeper? And kaskade, I doubt some preteens can replicate that, it is technically complex. You gotta see it up close.
I'll post a few pictures from a very close family friend of mine. His name is Bogdan Frymorgen. He's a wonderful photographer and person.
