Dont be so hard on yourself. I like your painting where you're trying to depict emotions, the title was "anger" ;) good stuff
it's a dead tie right now. ARGGh!
I love Arwar's. I love how he masterfully depicted the cloth with such realism and a careful eye. And with oils! woowee!

Jesus to both of you....this is a hard choice.....But i gotta give it to Arwar that cloth is just so smooth and just bueatifuly done, but i also have to give it to Denart casue Watercolor is just a medium that is quite challenging in it self.
this is a hard decision.....
im still in high school my self and god i hope i can even get this good....

Oh, my god!!!! My eyes almost came out of my sockets when I read that they were done in HIGH SCHOOL... Thats amazing!!! I would have to Denart for the creative aspect and stylization of it but,.... WOW.. thats all i can say..

:O these are amazing!!
did either of you use reference?? or is it from imagination and life.
its my senior year in high school, i hope i can do something half as cool as these by the end of the year.

im still in highschool....watch out you bastards....

Thanks for the votes guys! :D
I took a crappy photo as reference
Arwar took a photo for ref as well.
We both took the shots ourselves, using the timer.
Arwar had to stack books to get his angle right. Hardcore :D
One thing I learned throughout my years is to not follow the photo ref slavisly. You have to change parts, move the lighting, and etc for artistic aesthetics.

arwar has my vote, i like them both, but i'm a sucker for good drapery.
January 5th, 2005, 04:22 AM
I voted Denart. Mostly for better composition.
I'd just like to say how incredibly envious I am of your talent, fellows. When I was 17, I drew dog turd. I couldn't even hold a brush properly.
Cherish the talent you have.
January 5th, 2005, 09:44 AM
Voted Arwar. He looks like a buddhist monk, and that work on the cloth.... winnah ;)
January 7th, 2005, 12:56 AM
omg! so kick ass.. you should've put a BOTH option... you both guys win.... seriously.. and HIGH SCHOOL?! i just wish you lied and told me you are older than i am.
August 26th, 2005, 09:41 PM
Im gonna go with den. i like the pose...how it is exagerated... and i love watercolor. arwar.....i want that cloth.
p.s. jair428. treat him well
August 26th, 2005, 10:13 PM
I apologize...but I am not going to vote. I'm actually getting stressed trying to choose which one I like more, and fuck if I need more stress.
- Beautiful job on both...if one piece haunts me in my dreams/nightmares it'll get my vote, but for now I give up.
Cheers to ya fellas...
