Well, it's flu season... has anyone else come down with a case of the "I feel like shit's?"

I got vaccinated so I wouldn't have to go through this, but here we are. =\

I regularly get sick - it's a real bummer, but I get everything from the flu to hay fever throughout the year. My immune system sucks, real bad.

Well, going off the size of the central figure, any real expansive background would be a good idea - an apocalyptic wasteland, or ruined castle, or hellish underworld - really, anything in the same mood as that guy and a whole lot larger then he is.

As for tutorials, No real idea - I used to know a couple but I've pretty much forgotten about them.

I get sick maybe once every three years, and when I do its usually the "feel kinda bad but not bad enough to skip work/school" variety...

Don`t they also use dead virus? so that your body sees it as foreign but you wont get sick from it (maybe a bit of a fever but that isnt actually a symptom of the virus)

Yeah, that's why I said null, because the virus can't actually affect your body. Your immune system still has to deal with it, and if it sucks, it busts out the fever, and that's what usually makes people feel shitty.

No, he wouldn't be having the flu, symptom wise then.
If he does, that could mean that he was infected with the flu before getting the shot.

Thanks. Yeah we were shooting for kind of a horror/mystery vibe.

I'm having problems embedding the video in my news post. Where the hell would I find a FAQ or board for that. Tried doing a search and already looked through the standard FAQs. My friend uploaded it maybe he put some restrictions in that conflict.

One would think that going on a field trip to an art museum would inspire some sort of artistic/creative feelings.

NOPE.

Because it is required to "analyze" paintings by listing off what common themes are in a painting, and being rushed through the museum itself, and seeing a solid black canvas being displayed as "art", I keep drawing blanks. I literally sit down to draw something, and I end up blank.

I'm serious about the black canvas. It wasn't a built up surface, there were no brush strokes, just a spray painted canvas. It was untitled, too.

I mean, come on. This shit doesn't even fly on the internet, how could it in the real world?

You know what rating this would get if it were submitted to the art portal?

BOLLOCKS.

It's called modern art, and it's fucking stupid.
If you ever have the chance, check out the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York,
It's full of stuff like that, and it's fucking stupid.

I don't mean this to sound like an attack, if it does, I apologize.

Is that a blanket statement against Modern Art? I am far from an expert or scholar of artistic movements but Minamalism =/= Modern Art.

I love MoMA, not everything they display lights my fire, but I am much more inspired by Modern through contemporary art than I ever was with what came before. The period of Modern Art forward just makes my mind explode with imagination and creativity; ANYTHING is possible now. If it wasn't for the groundbreaking work done by modernists, opening up art to include so much more than what we previously thought of as art I hate to think where we would be artwise.

Possibly, but that's because when I hear modern art I think of shit like 3 mirrors forming a corner with seashells in the corner, or a plain blue square, or a block of wood with a styrofoam cup nailed to it. In that sense, I think it's stupid and doesn't deserve to be even remotely as highly regarded as they are.

Okay, so I just went to the MoMA website. Not impressed. Its not that I don't like modern art its just that I find a lot of it just to be splatters all over a canvas. There is this one statue on there that is just two right angles, and another one that appears to be plastic and bedsheets, I'm just not impressed with it.
Its cool when it is just like an explosion of color but when it is stuff like a crap glob of clay or a canvas spray painted black, it's just not art.
Modern architecture though, that is a different story, it is amazing and the things that can be possible with theses structures is just unbelievable.
I think this is in Japan. And here is a convention center in Tokyo.

I'm gonna stick up for Modern Art here a little.

1) Duchamp and his ilk what most people consider "bullshit" art. IE Hanging toilets, and blank canvases, and even indicating empty space as art.

Yes on some level it is complete bullshit. I'm personally unmoved by this particular vein of art it and think it spawns a lot of lazy thinking. But I would defend to the death the idea it forwards. No one can say what is or isn't art. What has or hasn't got value. These guys are the punk rock of the art world. Maybe that's not right. They are the first industrial musicians of the art world. They are Throbbing Gristle. Without their expansion of the conception of art other artists wouldn't be freed to play around in ways you or I might consider more legitimate. Without their noise we wouldn't have Nine Inch Nails, Aphex Twin, or Massive Attack. If you'll go with that comparison. And even if you can't find the value in what they produced, they deserve your gratitude for expanding the vocabulary with which you express yourself.

Also, dismissing anything is bad for your brain. When you look at art that is by it's nature unintelligible you are forced to think in new ways. Opening yourself up to the possibility that the valueless has value keeps you from stagnating. If you as an artist want to be able to show the world a new idea. You have to be open to them first. If that means you look foolish or pretentious then so be it. Better to look foolish than to actually be a close minded idiot. If that means you start understanding something that used to disgust you and your peers. Good. Then you won't ever be afraid of looking.

2) Robert Motherwell, Mark Rothko, Fancis Bacon, Picasso, Louise Borgeous, etc. I love these guys. If you dismiss them as a group or as individuals you might miss out on something you really love. Something that excites you. All because you've closed your mind.

3) Non-representational art is fucking hard. If you don't think so give it a try. Try to find a new way to make an image that doesn't rely on your interpretation of something real or imagined. It's pure composition, and the shit's hard to do well. I personally suck at it.

CHALLENGE

Find a non-representational artist you enjoy. Or try your hand at finding a new way to make art in a non-representational way. You might get a new appreciation for it.

I actually don't mind Modern Art - people expressing creativity in the most unusual ways that they can think of, but no, it doesn't belong on the Art Portal. All the same, it really is an enjoyable experience to stroll about in the air-conditioning observing different art forms, and I wouldn't mind that (although I wouldn't expect to be inspired by it - creativity and respect =/= inspiration and admiration).

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)

Modern architecture though, that is a different story, it is amazing and the things that can be possible with theses structures is just unbelievable.
I think this is in Japan. And here is a convention center in Tokyo.

Dont particularly like those two, but I love practically everything by Rem Koolhaas and Daniel Libeskind

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.

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.

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.
