    DazDaryl, on a serious note, you might be interested in Jim Thalassoudis, an Australian realist, and his In The Real Art World blog. (Be warned, he's a funny bunny with not much patience for the ARC crowd.)

    I consider myself a person that has a very deep love for making pictures of what is in my head, I love designing and inventing and painting it/drawing it, for me it`s one of the most wonderful things I can do.

    If THAT makes me an artist, fine... if that`s NOT being an artist... THEN I DON`T WANT TO BE AN ARTIST, I WANT TO BE THIS!

    daz, if you want to study figurative art but dont have the money for private school, why dont you organize a figure drawing/painting workshop? find some models, hire them to pose for awhile and get a bunch of other artists together and draw. its that easy! its not hard to find models....go to your local private art school and talk to the models there. or ask your friends to model...dont you know any hot chicks? find the hippies, hype up about how they will be contributing and be a part of art, theyll do it! and if you find a group of artists to do this with, you can all chip in to pay the model so it doesnt end up costing you all too much. or you can all model for each other.

    im an art model, and speaking of levels of artists, i have only modeled at a high end art school until yesterday, i modelled for a small group of older people, most of who werent very serious about becoming an artist, yes they were mostly hobbyists. but man they treated me so much better, i made tons of tips, their energy was fabulous and free. i would model for a group like that any day above an art school..

    I agree with this entirely.

    Bouguereau was such a hack.

    And Frazetta? Man, what a loser.

    Without that 45 x 74 pixel tag, you are nothing.

    Restricting yourself to that train of thought as an artist is like wishing to be an Aladdin-style genie, man. ULTIMATE COSMIC POWER OF CREATION... iiiiity bitty living space. If that is the bar you're setting just to be considered a ~*~*~*~*REAL ARTIST*~*~*~*~, you need to get off of CA for a while and go check out what the rest of the art world has to offer, Jafar.

    I aspire to be an illustrator, not an artist.

    People that define themselves as Artists are just people who like to bitch!

    Well, in Dante's Inferno wasn't there a level of Hell that was actually no so bad which was reserved for the "Noble Pagans" like Aristotle and Socrates who didn't have a chance at Heaven because they had no way of knowing about Christianity? Maybe there's a level of not-artist status that these guys have achieved...

    Everyone can claim to be an artist, it’s not some title of respect that you have to
    earn first and there is no judge who hands those out.

    It’s just a word and the general impression this word gives people is that you are
    poor or a looser or both. Artist is such a vague word, it does not even remotely
    hint what the person does, it could be a cartoonist, a mime or one armed blind
    singer asking your for a $.

    Honestly, I could not care less what others call themselves. People claim shit all day,
    fast-food restaurants claim to have healthy food, politicians claim to tell the truth,
    husbands claim not to have affairs, some claim to be connected to god, others claim
    to have been abducted by aliens, parents claim to be always right and kids claim to
    know it better. You claim that some don’t deserve to be called artists and I claim that
    giving a shit about it is worth next to nothing.
