Thanks sve ... I really appreciate the post. I wish I had half the capability of conversation as you do... heh. You really are too kind.... thank you.
Dixon and Manley did an awesome job at putting me to shame (as I knew they would). I Keep going back over and over all the images, taking another look at artists websites or sketchbooks. The amount of quality work is amazing. I have so much respect for the members here at CA and dedicating so much time for these contest.
cheers for the comments sve,missed them the first time because i was in a rush.Its wierd reading your comments,how someone can come up with all that info on an image that to me at the time was just a random image that came to mind,heh churs,thx robyn for your comment aswell
oh,and nicolas you never cease to amaze me,my fave entry out of the lot.
It is weird for me to read your thoughts, Rusty, because I always start from idea that nothing is random in art. All details have some reasons why they are included in the image. I even think that where you put dots and lines have some bases if an artist knows what he wants.
Look, I thought that maybe colors in m@'s image were random, and no, they were put there on pupose, were well thought out.
If nothing is random, then there is a certain idea in the image, I need to look carefully.
Thank you Sve for the very kind comments about my entry, I'm happy you like it and see it in the same light that I did while painting it.
Also, thanks for taking the time to make comments on every entry. I'm sure it is most appreciated by all who entered this round.
cody s the man ...i agree
sve, thank you very much for the crits and compliments; I'm glad you enjoyed the piece. I had to put it away for almost a week before I could look at it again after submitting! Anyway, you are right about the escaping souls overpowering the bad guy's torso. Guess I got carried away in that area a bit. Good insight, and thanks again.
Hmm I did say Id come back later
Theres a great deal of high quality work in here, but I just thought Id mention a handful that I particularly enjoyed.
DavidSmit Nice mood in this. I really like how the girl indicates some unseen threat outside of the frame very effective.
Dutton Great idea, very expressive and very well painted!
Mr Blonde Loved the styling in this.
Okelvin That must have taken flippin ages!
Viag It looks complex and dramatic yet simply constructed. These are skills I must learn!
Shelly another beautiful piece! More understated than your first round, but no less worthy of merit!
El Coro I really love the texture in the first piece it feels so tangible.
Iconophobian Painterly and dramatic and a nice palette!
Jason Manley Im really drawn into this it feels like a memory, or some thought captured in a frame. An amazing quality for a relatively simple piece.
Kudos to everyone who submitted an entry! - Too much awsomeness for one thread! pld:
Sve Thanks for the critique! Im sure youre right it feels more like an approximation of what it should have been. I spent too much time conceptualising when I should have just gone for it I dont have much experience with quick concept techniques, so I needed more time than I allowed. Oh well My fault!
I dont expect to be in the next round, and Im already disappointed about that but its been a great experience and I definitely want to be in the next one!
Looks like the results could be posted today!
Very entertaining scroll!
MikeC, TyranX.. nice round!
MikeC: your piece definitely got the feeling of an escape, very cool from dusk to dawn-feeling in it : )
And Tyranx, sweet.. love the execution of your work, cool simple scene.
Whoa.. tons of great stuff! And thx Sve for the words on everyones work!
