I figured I might as well make one, even though these pieces are on seperate threads with questions on completing them/improving them. Regardless, I need a thread!

Second painting I made this summer. Out of MDF board, so I can't make any more for the time being.

I rather like your style. The shading and perspective is great. It's got a very "modern art" feel to it. You're certainly talented. Are you focusing on doing anything in particular? Landscapes, architecture? I can't quite tell what those are though. Is that a deliberate effect, or am I just an idiot?

I think that starter pic is pretty awesome. It looks like you have some sort of texture on those mountains, what did you do to get that effect?

It's a mixture if ash and acrylic. I burned a bunch of things from my ex and mixed them (for the concept of the piece, and I just wanted to experiment with different media). It turned thx paint into gum pretty much.

Thanks for the kind words you two!

I'm actually glad you're questioning what I'm making. I'm don't want to make anything too literal. These two are part of my AP Studio Art concentration on Guitar Chords.

Untitled. It's just a better picture of what I had up earlier.

Started this guy today. I'm trying out a new technique and photoshopping images, then painting those distortions. (This one I just upped the contrast and brightness, which incidentally fit the tone I wanted to create anyways).

I know NG is against photography in the art forum, but I figured my photogram here is more like a fine art piece than a photo.

It's a self portrait piece I had to do in my photography class.

Photography is fully allowed in the art forum, just not the art portal. Feel free to post all the photography you want.

Like Penboy I like the first two a lot. The last one is also really appealing, but the rest, not so much. There is some issues with your coloring it seems. But you seem eager for experimenting and then some stuff will just end up not looking too good so never mind that. Just keep playing around and then the skills will follow shortly :)

Yeah, my AP teacher has been helping me learn more about color and how to use it. The self portrait with the blue hair and yellow/red face is looking much better now with her advice.

The rest are most likely unappealing because in AP, were being forced to experiment A LOT, so everyday I'm working out of my comfort zone.

Bicycle pencil piece. Apparently you should always have a bicycle piece in a portfolio lol. It's going to be 6 drawings in one combined image. The 6th section has yet to be added.

Here's an updated image. Added some details and stuff. At the point where I'm sick of working on it because any additions are hardly noticeable.

What do you think I should do with the negative space? I think the curves give a very beautiful tone to the image, and adding anything my disrupt it...

I'm learning how to print my negatives in the darkroom now. I decided to go into the darkroom during one of my study halls and wing it before learning how to do it in class. I think I did alright, but I could have increased the contrast a tad.

Model: My gorgeous girlfriend :]

Need more detail in some of the paintings and sketches. To be honest, a couple of them look like high school art
