You know that it’s going to be an interesting week when it starts with a phoenix in the sky. Good news? Only time can tell…
A project being completed should be cause for happiness, but this picture of Alucard from Hellsing is about closing the books. A friend who passed away recently loved the character, so I did this. Cried a little.
Then immediately started another picture on sort of a dare. Someone claimed hyper realism on a picture they drew and I…disagreed. Not in a bad way, mind you. Just pointed out some places where the guy missed the mark.
Well, he flipped out, called me a hater and worse, gave me the old “if you knew anything about art…”. Ugh!!
So I reverse Google searched the image, found the pic, sat down and made it in about two hours.
And I posted it in our art group. With time stamps.
I guess I wanted to make a point. I’m pretty sure I did; he shut up and tried to get me blocked by admin! She read the thread and decided that since he had requested critiques and comments, nothing I’d done warranted being kicked out.
Also, I got the same response. It’s the art world.people are going to disagree with what you’ve done, how it’s done, WHY it’s done. You gotta roll with it and you can always tell who to listen to and who to nod politely at.
We’re all trying to get better at creating.
