    Boohoo cry me a river! There are a lot of famous artists that failed before they became famous. Everyone has their hardships in art. You just don't give up. So shutup and get over it you got talent.

    Hitler was an art student before he pussied out and went political cause he didn't get accepted to art school. Sissy.

    MuizChulan:

    So you goto art school? are all of your classes like this?

    I also goto art school... some teachers are lame, and assign lame projects. I just have to figure out what they want and do it... What do you care if you only had to spend 10 minutes on an assignment? Sounds like an easy grade.

    As much as I hate pretentious bitch "artists" like your tutor seems to be, at least you learned a valuable skill in this class... to learn what the client wants, and do it. its not a gallery piece man, suck it up.

    i know you were worked up for your original post, but i agree with the people who have previously said that if this makes you want to quit art... then just quit. its not going to get any better.

    i'm sure you now realize its just the way of an artist. not everyone is going to want to suck your dick after seeing one of your pieces.

    you are a good artist, keep it up, man. just think how you can laugh at your tutor once you're an established artist, and the tutor is still telling kids to piss in a painted paper bag.

    While I feel the same as many people here, I do find it ironic that when he made the second image, he was really flaming mad, and that emotion was conveyed in the piece. So I think it probably had more emotion in it than the first, although you didnt like it as much. Im not saying that makes a better pic...I like realism much better than any art. Just a little irony I picked up on. But stick with it man. I find I disagree with many of my teachers in school. I finally found one here for my life drawing class that tells us all (the people in my class) that we suck, and need to get better. That is kinda refreshing. So just stick with it. Its only one person's opinion. You'll find people, the mass of people, the ones that will hire you, will appreciate are created with both emotion, and care...ie nicely rendered. Keep with it. Don't abandon it. It'll get better.

    Really, it sounds like you have issues with self-esteem. Dying for some attention lately? I don't know why I'm bothering with this but ...

    Your instructor was probably right and "wow!" actually evoked enough emotion in you to produce what he/she was looking for. Sounds like a good art instructor if you ask me.

    The important thing to remember here is that time doesn't matter in the creation of art. 5 minutes or 5 years ... what's the difference when either evoke emotions in the viewer? Also, reguardless of what you think of your own work, if someone else is impressed by your 'bowel movements on canvas' then it is art to them.

    Art is only absolute to the artist, but completely subjective to the viewer. You can't make the viewer see your passion just because you felt it when creating the piece. It's entirely up to them whether they experience anything at all when viewing your work.

    The best you can do is put it out there for feedback and guage the opinions of others. If they react strongly to it ... it's art. If you get, "eh." ... then try something else.

    I'm curious ... can you post the two images?

    It sounds like you are studying in a liberal arts program. You may want to consider a school with a more academic approach to drawing and painting.

    There is no emotion in your post...













    ...now you have another emptiness in yourself (but maybe i am just one stupid person, you don't give a shit about his opinion...?)
