replicas a plenty!
hello there kuNiva
noticed your sb and thought i would comment for once.. however i dont think i am going to be as nice as everyone ealse here.
i belive in a previouse post some one noticed that your work was in juxtapoz, well done if it was (however very unlikely due to the fact your at uni in? preston? and to the fact that you didnt mention it in any form or post any work from said magizine) so rather than a random doodle/picture you copied it.. any chance when you copy stuff you mention its a copy? or that you used refferances? for instance the hogarth, you mentioned hogarth so that is good! also i think the longer you draw and copy the better you will get.. at copying anyways. and you will notice that your eye will adjust and you will start getting the lines right and anatamy will come with it too, good luck with that.
as for the quick pose, in comparison to your other works is really good! however i am assuming you did use reffernce...
lets take a look!
we start with yours.. ____________________________and then we look at Marko Djurdjevic's piece of blade
now if you didnt copy and i happend to of made a mistake then i am sorry for that, however i think that it is unlikely as you have copied the lines in the left leg and copied the foot (little wonkey) of the right.. and you even drew the little lip of the sleeve on his right shoulder and even down to the markings on the shoes... so if this is coincidence then my what a coincidence it is!
the point i am making is, you seem to copy alot- and i remembered the day when this site was called conceptart.org, were people would come and show THERE concepts off to everyone ealse. now i can understand the hogarth as you are studying it, however when copying other things to the point were people mistake it as another persons work or is seen to be copied of another persons work then you should say you copied it, used it as referance and give some credit towards the original artist. at the minute in this sketchbook i dont know how many works are that of your own thinking or that you have copied and that we have not picked up upon it.
I hope for your sake that you dont do this with your work at uni, because if you do and one person notices it you could be done for plagiarism if they show your work and the work you copied from. now in art you might be able to worm your way out... but dont be an artist or should i say in your case a graphic designer? and expect to grow in the right areas.. for instance imagination... unless you want to be one of those people that makes replicas..
however i would like to see some of your own work in the future...
