The fumes from the paint thinner makes us special.
Its a "statement" about how an ambitious artist who knows she can't make it on talent alone will find some cheap and effective provocation by which to garner attention for her junky work.
I not saying you have to a celibate hermit with absolutely no outside contact. I'm saying that the amount of time spent on personal and social relationships is inverse to most peoples success at a...
Who else thinks Timelike should get the 1st ban of 2011?
Happy new year everyone :)
I love this thread.
There have always been people like this and there always will be. Why? Because artists who aren't good enough to work professionally will always give away their services. Technology helps this and in...
Well, I've always felt that all art was essentially "commercial art" until sometime in the nineteenth century...
That is, once upon a time art was almost always made for a purpose - entertainment,...
Metallic enamel paints (like Liquid Leaf) tend to be more convincing than acrylics.
Either get metal leaf (which isn't gold but looks like it) or put down a coat of beige gesso, then paint metallic gold on top. What makes something look gold has a lot to do with what's underneath...
I was a biotech scientist in the early nineties. Even then we could take a specific gene and insert it into a cell and make it do what we want when we wanted. Since I was in technical...
HOLY ********** *********!!!
THATS A LOT OF DETAIL!
I BOW AT YOUR MIGHTY FEET OF PEN MASTERY!!!
As for evaluation of your work.... ding! SUCCESS!!!
I think it's ALWAYS mentally. But that's just me.
If I could edit the voice in everyone's head that screams "I'm not good enough!" and replace it with "SHUT THE FUCK UP AND DRAAAAAAAAWWW!!!" I...
I don't mean that, actually. I'd rather have a dialogue.
What's with the self-deprecation here? I mean, I understand you're surrounded by artists of different talent levels, and that's a...
Round here women are built like oil tankers and look like tug boats.
Hello my fellow artists!
The way our profession is treated at times is sickening. No one would dare to claim a free meal at a
restaurant in exchange for telling friends that it was tasty and yet...
I am just tackling the difficult world of gestures and really didnt like way posemaniacs looked. Awkward poses and crazy camera angles. Its more difficult to empathaise with a pose if it is stiff and...
If every artist consumes a great amount of cadmium red and flake white, the problem should work itself out.
every great artwork consume great amount of HP, leaving artist deprived of life. But art means more than level caps right? So how do you keep alive especially when everybody else is attacking on all...
Super late-night work usually results in a "wtf is that?" moment the next morning.
So, all of the above?
If so, Van Gogh doesn't fit that criteria because he wasn't financially successful at all. :I
But what the hell, let's give you some names anyway:
* Leon Battista...
Here is a trick you can have for nothing!
Clear plastic wrap, the kind you would wrap up a sandwich in, the sheet stuff, not the bag. Crumple it up and press it into the armor's surface. It makes...
I'd offer, but unfortunately there is no way to contain the special brand of hateful rage that fills my body and soul. The Russians tried once, and the Tunguska Event occurred. Before I was even born.
Yeah Wikipedia tells me it's the same stuff. I must admit even stuff that's been really thinned down has managed to cure to a degree, kinda going abit like a gel.
I should say though that...
you can also use clear silicon caulk with oil paints mixed in to get a translucent skin colour for a casting material. I have used to to make a corpse prop.
You make a plaster or ultracal mold...
