About Musical Inspiration
People seem to think the titles for my works mean nothing. lol. Well, actually I tend to listen to one song or one band over and over to set a mood for ever single piece I do. Friends can agree, I have no artistic talent whats so ever without music. So, you might say... Triangulated?... What the hell does that mean! lol. It's one of my favorite parts of the song I listened to while doing this. If you have an imeem.com account then listen to it! I may start putting the song or band that gave the certain feeling I have while making each piece so you too can feel what I feel. :)

Another piece that shows impressive texture and coloring, it's interesting to see how people can work such great color, but lessen structure, and vice versa. What do I mean? Well...
This piece is amazing for it's highlights, shading, color, and vibrancy, yet it feels like the structure is off in someplaces, like the eyes, the left seems to not be in synch with the right. And then there's the expression...it's just a bit too bland, like the character being portraid had no interest in showing so much an emotion, as much as just having a face to be painted over.
Now don't get me wrong, the piece is still good, I'm actually stunned by the amazing work on the hair, (I'm a sucker for white hair) but the illusion of millions of hairs is so realistic and life like that I can say it can arguably make up for what the face fails at. The lips are well done too, but they suffer from the lack of emotional dynamic of the character, so it's a bit of a hit and miss...the piercing's a nice touch though.

In the end: a wonderfully detailed piece, all that's needed in future is a more obvious emotion for the portrate to represent-and we can see great things from this artist (unless it's not so much the emotion the character is looking for, but rather the blandness of the common person of today when it comes to anything outside their interests or apparent benefit, in which case-FULL MARKS!! :dummy: )
What do you think?

I used to be able to hand draw like that back in High School. But sadly, after I graduated, I quit doing art and buried my talent for 11 years until I found dA back in 07. I never did fully get my talent back. -_-

Aw I'm sorry hun. You sound like me with singing. I was a singer back in high school. Won all region, all state, was in jazz choir, southern bells, talent shows blah blah blah ever was offered a contract with alternative spin, the people who got no doubt started, but my mom told me she wanted me to graduate because i pursued my singing career. But, Once I got pregnant in 07 I just stopped singing cause pregnancy made my voice different due to pressure. and now I can sing... But nothing like before. don't help that I smoke a pack a day.... But, at least I still have my art... I used to draw back in high school but NOTHING like I do now. I have a scanner now too! So I'm going to try my hand at sketching my own characters out traditionally and coloring them in paintshop pro. :D I'm tired of peoples accusations everytime I credit a photographer! It's bullshit! So from this point on I'm doing mostly original shit.
