[QUOTE=Mr. Scorpio;27021326]oh im sorry does that mean that if it were transcribed into 2d i could call it a huge jumbled mess of wires, plates, and hoses without upsetting you?[/QUOTE] No I'm just saying you're clearly not interested in it so I don't think you can have a legitimate say in what's good about it and what's not. Perk up you're being too emotional.
[QUOTE=doggyalt;27032216]No I'm just saying you're clearly not interested in it so I don't think you can have a legitimate say in what's good about it and what's not.[/QUOTE] Yes he can. Art is art, everyone can have their own opinions about it and there is no right or wrong. So why should there be right and wrong people to form their own opinions about it?
[QUOTE=dgg;27032506]Yes he can. Art is art, everyone can have their own opinions about it and there is no right or wrong. So why should there be right and wrong people to form their own opinions about it?[/QUOTE] Nobody in their right mind would say that the image johan posted isn't fantastically done if they actually understand the medium. The amount of work and thought to get something like that is phenomenal. Even if he doesn't think it's appealing it's obvious he doesn't understand what it takes to create something like that. I've seen plenty of work I don't particularly like but I respect and attempt to fully understand what went into it. Doesn't seem like he's doing that at all. [editline]28th December 2010[/editline] Also, I'm not referring to it in an artistic aspect, I'm talking about a matter of skill and how technically good it is. I don't care for painting but if I see a painting that hardly looks different from a photograph I'll drop my jaw.
I've always found people who judge art at contests I've been to have no idea what they're looking at. It seems to be a qualification for the job to hate everything. Must be easier to figure out what you hate the least than what you love the most.

He's just saying he doesn't like those works at all. What he mainly didn't like was that it was just a show-of of a model with lots of fancy shit on it and that the image itself wasn't art at all as it wasn't composed beyond "look at this person I made". It's obviously not his piece of cake, but he didn't deem it not well made. Why care about the effort put into something? If you can draw Mona Lisa in 3 seconds freehand and another person carefully builds up a skeleton, looks at light sources and all sorts of jazz to make it good and you both end up with the same result I would think both were just as good. The result is what matters, not the process, the process is only cool to know. Well again, he never said anything about the technical work aspect of it.

With each post you look dumber and dumber.[/QUOTE] What can I say? If that was what it took to make me dumb then you didn't know me very well beforehand. :smile:

[QUOTE=dgg;27034381] The result is what matters, not the process, the process is only cool to know. [/QUOTE] The process shows skill. A masterful process is art in itself.

Perk up you're being too emotional.[/QUOTE] I was trying to make a point about composition, not say anything about it's technical aspects. The model is technically well done, but overcomplicated and confusing, whereas the other is technically simple, yet effective and easy on the eyes. Must I rephrase that again and again until you listen? [editline]29th December 2010[/editline] [QUOTE=johan_sm;27038948]The process shows skill. A masterful process is art in itself.[/QUOTE] Notice I never spoke to the artist's skill. Only his finesse.
my favourite artform is film. i don't think it gets enough recognition as one around here. what do you think
I barely see film around here, so I agree with you rusty.
[QUOTE=Rusty100;27046854]my favourite artform is film. i don't think it gets enough recognition as one around here. what do you think[/QUOTE] one of my favorite artists of all time is andrei tarkovsky

Reason we don't get flicks here all the time is because someone rarely manages to go through the process that requries such great resources to create a worthwhile picture here.
no need to get snappy, i meant more in this thread and the fact as not enough people see it as an artform

Artistic indie films = b&w, slow/sad music and possibly a narrator.

This guy, Artgerm, works at DC Comics and like other comic book artists, has an account on DeviantArt. His most recent work. Frankly, Superboy looks a tad feminine. [img]http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/364/7/e/superboy_and_krypto_by_artgerm-d360cii.jpg[/img] Ah but this, a personal favourite. He looks so badass.

[QUOTE=Rong;27073488]Artgem's stuff[/QUOTE] I personally love Artgem's use of color, what I hate though about almost every piece of his, is that with his style, everything pretty much looks like leather... cloth, skin, etc..
