Reminds me of this:
Perhaps its just me but I'm seeing muchas influence in Frazettas work:
amazing... I always liked mass scenes like this.
Great thread Magic!
I have recently found inspiration in painting done by a Ukranian-born artist who is fairly new in the fine arts circuit, Vladimir Kush (not sure about the spelling). I enjoy his art not just for the brilliant colors and composition, but also for the great metaphors that he paints.
I believe this one is by Hoon. Just one his many greats.
Sketchbook:: //// A thread of evolution ////
DS- I remember the first time I saw that painting of Joan of Arc at the Met. It completely floored me. It was 1997 (I remember because it was the last year that the Rangers made the playoffs, and a security guard came over to me to compliment me on my jersey and predict that we were gonna kick the Devil's ass. I was 14 or 15 at the time and at first terrified I was in trouble for drooling on the painting). To this day I can't exactly put my finger on what enthralls me so about it, but I highly recommend ppl track it down if you're ever near the Met. I can't find a photo anywhere on the web that remotely does it justice. In fact, I feel motivated...maybe I'll head over there right now.
great thread guys.
i REALLY wish I could find better images of this Mathew Harwood's stuff. He's always been on of my favorite artists, but nothing compares to see his work in person... it's tough to tell, but it's actually a 3d drawing done on cut, assembled paper.
anyone in the DC area should go to the torpedo factory in alexandria and check out his stuff... he'll let you thumb through his sketchbook too if you ask..which is amazing.
Also, suprised this guy hasn't popped up yet:
BWS, the definitive conan artist.
nothing special....sadly....but I hope someday^^
when you want to mentor someone, you may want to come here
I wish I could find better quality images to post.
Bill Sienkiewicz! Nice one.
I remember my first exposure to him was seeing his actual pencils - in an old X-Men comic with Dracula as the villain - and I loved his work. And his painted stuff..awesome.
yiako- I saw that painting in Artist magazine.. they nominated it for one the best portraits ever... amazing painting it really is..
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
Yep, I'm going to steal it... one day (twiggles fingers) hehe
Seriously though, I I don't know F.A. about Sydney Long, apart from the fact that this picture stuck in my head after my, (lies), numerous visits to the QLD National Gallery. I've since found some other choice landscapes by him on the net.
Just spreading the joy..
I was going to suggest this same exact piece. I love her work.Originally Posted by BartsAnything by Linda Berkgvist, she's got amazing skills.
Another piece of hers that I love is this one:
It's the kind of piece where after you look at it for a while you see that it's actually rather creepy.
Mechwarriors, for purely negative reasons. (it is like when somebody sees a picture of a starving child in Africa, it inspires them to eliminate hunger or something like that)
Frank Frazetta did this when he was a little kid. I think it's just awesome to see his 'early work' like that, hahah.
and that. That's just awesome. He's such a great painter and all, yet still lives such a macho life.
This picture has been one of my favorites for a while now.
