I dunno. At first I would have said that dA is the place where you shunbt all your idiotic artists, but I've spent some time there (mainly avoiding every bandwagon of generic there (anime and the like)) and I have to say there are a fair few artists who just come up with the most beautiful stuff and pose the most intelligent and fun to exercise arguments.

But yeah, most are stupid.

As for the Evil Jonny pic, NEGA-JONNY.

Yeah, DA has a lot of talent too. I don't hate it to the extent I become a troll. But I do hate the majority of dumb people there.

Hey, they're the ones who asked for a cute face. I drew them one.

There is heaps of talent at dA but the amount of crap out weighs the talent. On this one photo I said "the light doesn't work at all" and he raged and said I was jealous of his artistic abilities and for some reason the fact that no one else said the light was bad made my comment/opinion null. I lol'd.

Modern art.

All I got to say about it are angry swear words of the worst kind. Fuck you, Modern art. Fuckiddy fuck fucker sonofabitch twathole arschloch. You suck. You are lame. You are a twat of the worst kind.
Calling yourself "modern" and thus taking away the opportunity for future generations to use the word is arrogance and bastardness beyond comprehension. For that, I hate you, "Modern" art.

As for other aspects, I feel quite meh. Some might like it, but I look at it with apathy and move on.

On a side note - goddamnit Mabelma, don't spam others with your blog. You've posted the link enough for everyone to see and the lack of interest should have been clear already.

I don't enjoy modern art. I can appreciate most of it, but i remember once, there was an exhibit here, and a piece was literally a line across a piece of notebook paper. I can't appreciate that.

A; you are to lazy to actually take the effort to appreciate art for anything deeper than simple esthetics
B: who are you to decide what is or isnt art.
(I am on the lines of BMK and Occluded; I think you are underappreciating any piece of art if you just look at the esthetic aspect, even traditional stuff)
Dont particularly like those two, but I love practically everything by Rem Koolhaas and Daniel Libeskind

I do take the effort to appreciate art, hell I've looked at paintings for at least 30 minutes whenever I go to an art museum, its just that I find some of it hard to interpret, such as this.
On the subject of modern architecture, we still haven't brought up the god of modern architecture.

You know, what I see as the problem here is that you people are clumping things together too much, and in doing so are letting the "bad" ruin the "good."
Just because all these things have "modern" slapped onto them doesn't mean they all have the same intent, purpose, effort, or idea behind them. Yes, a line across a piece of notebook paper has an element of BS to it, but does that mean you should hate on the whole genre because of that one group of silly work? No. What you're forgetting is that "modern art" is an extremely broad genre of art and contains a lot of different types. I don't think you should get your panties in a bunch over what a few artists do in Modern Art, because by shoving off that whole genre, you're also shoving off great artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Max Ernst, and Gustav Klimt.
And Re2Deemer, you forget one thing: Modern art isn't modern. The movement began in the 1860s, and it's changed as time moves on. It's a moldable genre, and the majority of things that fit into it also fit into other genres. Hell, entire other genres fit into modern art. Impressionism, Cubism, Surrealism, Pop Art, and tons of others are all considered "Modern Art."

I side with Occluded where the topic of interpretation of the more ambiguous works is involved.

A thesaurus.

And people don't label themselves. You ever try to give yourself a nickname? Here I'll help you calm down. How about the word 'contemporary'?

The perfect summation to this idiotic rant. This kind of dismissal will keep you ignorant. There's no virtue in relying on not trying to understand.

I found it more amusing that he says he used the line tool to measure it. Sure its an interesting idea regardless of how ignorant it makes him sound because of the major flaw that the line tool lacks the ability to measure depth

lol Yea he doesn't seem too intelligent, also I believe I have seen this thread before. He posts his shitty pics asks for crit and advice then makes up some bullshit to try and prove all helpful comments wrong... it makes me think that he's not being serious. If he is then I'm gonna set his house on fire or something...

You can, but it is preferred to put it in your art thread or if you don't have one then start an art thread.

It's really depressing not being able to completely copy something you have in your head, or think of something on your own. Just nothing I draw seems to come out the way I want it to. I look at all my artwork and think this can be improved, but how... I try to just look at other people's art to see what I could do, only making myself a little more upset. Cause I should be thinking of it myself not have to look at others work.

I also don't want to just keep working on the same pictures I have, because I won't really improve that way either considering they are mostly anime drawings. I want to do something with my art, but at this rate I really can't see myself going to far with this. I am not improving as fast as I should be.

It's just a little discouraging that when I see a really cool picture, and I ask the person how long they took to make it and they say like "oh only an hour or so". I am like shit... 1 hour and I barely get the the picture drawn out before I decide to color it in.

Hey, man, don't worry about it - it really just comes with practice, you get faster and better and stronger (lulz). I wouldn't compare yourself to any other artists unless you really are aiming exactly for their art or whatever, because it will just serve to discourage you.

Everyone gets to the stage where they figure out that there are ten million artists out there better at art then they are - just don't let it keep you down, man.

Hey man, don't sweat too much. I used to be the same way when it came to looking at other peoples art for reference or inspiration, I always thought I was copying or ripping them off some how. Then I learned that most of those artist looked at reference themselves. Maybe not during there current works, but at some point in their practice they had. And once I realized it took time to build a mental visual library by looking and studying tons of different art, artist and photos, I felt a lot better about using reference.
But even if you memorize hundreds of different photos or images, sometimes seeing the reference right beside your work to compare or correct yourself is often the best way to go about it. Even when making something that is completely new that doesn't have specific reference, find the different elements that make up something and then just use the reference for that specific area.

Example: Cthulhu's tentacles, find photos of real tentacles :P

So yeah find what you need on Google and buying reference books when you can and then practice, practice, practice.
I hope this encourages you and helps you
