    Painting inspired by Wood...

    Indeed. This upload is truly in the right forum category. I have worked on this at school for a very long time. The assignement was to choose an artist to be strongly influenced of, n I chose Ash Wood as ya can see. Btw, it is acryllic on a wooden board.

    It is pretty big, heres a pic of me next to it, so that ya can see the size. I'm the dude.

    Lovely handling of the acrylics, I thought they where oils. Sweet piece as well, only thing that bothers me is the face: in this huge commotion, the expression isn't selling it for me. Your credibility in the exaggerations of the proportions could be tweaked just a bit to make it convincing, by touching up the hand and sloaching the neck and head a bit. Sweet work my friend, keep at it.

    Thats freakin awesome!

    You should totally contact him and let him know you painted that.
    If it was me and someone did that in reference to my artwork, I'd get a kick out of it.

    That is truly amazing mate, especially for acrylics. The castshadows and your control of colour with such a (sometimes) unnerving medium are enviable. I don't like the man's clothing, it's too brownish and wrinkled for my liking, but I guess that's part of the style you were going for.

    Oh my oh my! Quite alot of replies here! Thanks everyone! Lots of fun lots of wrighting.

    Distant Skies - Hoorah! thankies.

    Jones - Thanks lots, n yeah them shoes worked good!

    JAG - I do not know. worked on it a bit ata time, since I do not have as much art at school as I would like. Hope that changes when I hopefully get into art university.
    Heheh, heck yes, that strawberry of awesome is the best thing 'bout it.

    Vigostar - Heh, sorry to have let ya down there... Glad you enjoyed it nevertheless. Hmmmm cant quite see the Rockwell in it... btw a great great painter indeed!

    Sebastian - Thanks meng!

    Mr. Visions - Thanks alot it worked out purdy nicely. Im totally on your side with the face, I'd like to redo the head of the guy completely, looks somewhat flat and a bit too tweaked n whatnot. Heh, I do see alot of new faults now that i focus at that. Hey thanks for helping out bud! Hey thanks heaps for taking the time.

    Peter - Heh, I shall be busy a long time then! 2'95 dollars a piece, key?

    Redehlert - Heh, I'll show yo comment to 'er. Hey next time for sure!
    Thanks bud, keep it up!

    Stalsby - Thank you muchly my good sir!

    I Was Ink - Yayum!
    Heh, but he is ASHLEY WOOD! I could never waste his time!
    One day it'll happen.

    Benedikt - Thank you deeply mate! Heheh, damn thats very nice ofya. Acrylics can sure be a bitch, it dried alot faster then I was expecting. I partly agree with you. I do like the colors, kinda continuing the "alot of brown, a little red, just a tad of blue-colortheme" too. Though the texture and wrinkles could be alot better. more flat and harder areas would look better. Thanks for the time taken!

    Complete - tihi, horray! Heck yes, I kinda like that too. Though the strawberry is what I like the most. Heh, great commenting.

    Father Christmas will mess you up.

    Big fan of Ashley myself. Robots vs Zombies is inspired brilliance. A great painting. A nod to Ashley yet still a unique feel.

    That's a good strong painting with a lot of conviction. Marvelous quirky rythmn to it as well, somehow solving a compositional problem in a very original way.
    I look forward to more.

    Tangents

    Orifice,

    overall it's a nice piece, but be aware of the tangencies(sp?) between the robot and the man. You should seperate the robot's knee from the man's... at first look i thought it was the robots leg with the shoe on the bottom of the piece.

    if this is intentional, cool, if not be careful of that in the future.

    peace,
    empty

    if you have a good look at a majority of Wood's work, you will see that a large portion of his drawings are sketchy, unfinished in a sense, and exaggerated. most of his figures have very elongated features, and disproportionate limbs and body parts in the more cartoonesque pieces. heck, there is a large portion of work in which his pinups all exhibit 3-inch nipples!

    its really of no consequence that he draws this way when you see his more meticulously rendered images, where it becomes evident that hes quite well versed with the human form in all its faucets. Wood's work pursues dynamic poses, compositions, and are most often centered around capturing a moment of action. Orifice has thus captured the moment - a snapshot of a very interesting and energetic situation. therefore i dont feel that anatomy is particularly paramount in this piece.

    that being said.. everyone should do more than a little life drawing. no excuse to be content with consistently abnormal anatomy, unless of course your penchant is small animals or robots or little gremlins or something that isnt necessarily grounded in the world of reality.

    /end rant
