    Bologna at night *** UPDATED (now, night herself)

    Bologna at night *** UPDATED (now, night herself)

    30/50 cm Charcoal on paper

    Well, maybe is not hyper realism, but I think there is some of city at night feeling

    Interesting Danilo, specially after I just read your post on ArtGod's thread. I think you've got a good start to a nice abstract piece. Are you gonna color this? I'd really like to see you work into this some more, but keep the loose, abstract feeling.

    Danilo, I'm suprised, you usually do more representational, fine art stuff. Well, all artist grow and become interested in new things.

    To be honest, I find it hard to tell what's going on. I know, or I assume, that this is a landscape drawing of Bologna. But I only knew that because of the title. Take away the title, and I got nothin.

    If this is the rough sketch of a city scape, then I think the drawing you have suits the purpose just fine. However, for others who don't know what the intention is, it's confusing. You could put some defining landmarks of a city, such as a the straight lines of building walls, or sketch the lines of street curbs. But agian, I'm not sure what you were going after in this sketch.

    I do see some suggestions of buildings. I think if you just worked on this sketch for one more hour, *then* posted it, it would have been more vivid. I also see the masses of the dark shapes, hinting at trees, and a windmill up at the top. I suppose... Just keep doing what your doing.

    However, it certainly is interesting.

    This is kind of messy, even for loosely works. I think the least you can do is to use different shadings to create a sense of depth. It'd be a lot better (even for abstract art or impressionism) if you have successfully create a good sense of depth and forms.

    I dont want to draw form, or anything three-dimensional. I want to find, or at least try to find some new aproach to visual arts.

    well you have succeeded in creating a big mess. learn the basics before you go making your own approach to "visual arts". and may i remind you this is a concept art forum.

    "Learn the Basics" is all I here from you people. That's all well and good if your going for traditional art and not something new. I say if your not going for something ordinary then you can't be judged by such critics. Danilo I think you've got something here rock on.

    I wonder if Picasso ever looked at another artist's work and thought to himself "I suck."

    It has potential, but currently it is simply a mess. There is no direction to any of it, due to a tonal blandness that removes the detail from all the small drawings lost in all those smudgy, smeary strokes.
    It you don't want to draw form, or anything 3D, then what is building, a sword, the tower of a building, and a fence doing there?

    You're tryin' to blow smoke, Danilo, and using "abstract" as an excuse for a work that looks like a poorly executed mess of smears with little real direction or exhibition of the basics.

    Sure, always grow as an artist, but don't hide behind BS when a piece is bad. Admit it's bad and then move on, or don't. Just be honest about it.

    For anyone interested in a good article regarding the appreciation of true abstract art, read this.
