murals, compilations of ordinary images in abstract combinations/circumstances. I find them to be more elaborate, and its a lot easier for me to get lost in these worlds I’ve constructed

do you have anything online i can see?

@tobiefaye, I’ve always had this fascination with sketches. I do pencil/charcoal/pastel portraits of mainly people; but in creative ways. I love analyzing the face. :)
What is your newest inspiration?

mostly sketching away in my sketch book, drawing people and things i would like to one day make. work a lot with charcoal and contie for class work(art student with only one yr left of college) but i find inspiration hard to come by….

i like to draw people but if they aren’t in a studio modeling they move just to fast for me to draw out, i enjoy making sculptures to but im not to great at it. ive often flirted with the idea of stencil work and street art but im not in a position to handle the consequences if im caught(maybe a bit cowardly but i think it leans more on the side of prudence).

here’s my site, id love some feed back, its mostly my anatomy work

@greatalastor, your art work is lovely!
The free hand movement throughout the body and dark texture make them intriguing…
:)
do you have a knack for any other types of art?

@greatalastor, the man with the laceration on the leg is magnificent, what inspired you to make such a scene?

I do graffiti, and most of my work is inspired by a lot of geometric, but abstract work.

I used to be into surreal, but it became to cliche for me. I just couldn’t do it to feel “right” so now it is totally abstract. I steal from graffiti, and many artists from around the globe, most of which I do not know the names of and I enjoy it that way. I would love to buy their stuff when I have the money though.

I’m in an art school for the summer.

I dance, do visual arts, and I’m in music.
Theater wants me but cannot have me. I seriously don’t even like performing arts… I like writing.

@tobiefaye, I am only beginning my artistic journey. I have always written/sang but was never very confident with drawing/painting etc… One day I decided whether I could do it or not I was going to give it a shot and let go. Best decision I have made – I have discovered talents I didnt know I had and LOVE spending quiet days at home or in a nice little comfy bar drawing people I see or emotions I feel. Art helps me deal with my emotions both positive and negative and everything inspires me.
Is there somewhere we can see you art? I would love to check it out.

Sorry for the late reply. I do sketches a lot. Its mostly what is around me or and object im near and extending it to brighter possibilities. what i’ve been most interested lately is my art in photography.

Photography is my thing, I love studio work and conceptual stuff, but for now I have to focus on producing what will make money, that way I can fund my ‘art’ side.

for me art is therapeutic. i use it to get things out of my head. the final product is not very important to me, because i am not making it for anyone.

@selina thank you i do try to keep my style a little loose but still in the realm of realism. i’ve tried all sorts of different things but ive found im best at traditional drawing with charcoal

@runlynch im not quite sure witch man you mean…the fat serious man? he was a life model who i was trying to capture, or do you mean my mix media paint spill image with the man in a turban? now HE was fun, i was in an open to the public studio durring an art walk and i was trying to convey the motion of so many people coming and going but still having this completely motionless model in the focal point,.

@lozzjd thank you, i knida do too, thats why i gave nude modeling a shoot for awhile. to see what is like on the other side of the window you know?

@geryon89 i really like your morbid style, it kinda remides me a little bit of Salvador Dali

@phanci3 absolutely LOVE the attention to geometric shapes! very bold very eye catching and the color schemes… very nice indeed!

@lozzjd i like your organic representation of the human form, what was your inspiration for this style of drawing?

@ijesuschrist your ink work is amazing! i hope your doing well on your etsy store

@geryon89, Thank you. Wow some of your work. It is so random. You have a deep style, but it is hard to compare each piece to the last – which I love. Unique.

@greatalastor, And you, thanks. And hell no I ain’t doing well. Everyone loves my stuff, but etsy isn’t a place to sell stuff. Nobody cares about your shit unless it is very… “office friendly”

1800+ views, over 100 favorites, not one message about a purchase, or any interest of the sort. It is really disheartening as I’ve bought quite a few things from other artists on there.

@ijesuschrist, i feel ya, when ever i have ventured to sell something online i never manage it. if its not in some gallery catering to a select group of people, like tourists, it just doesn’t sell

my uncle sells bronze native american sculptures, and he has continuously told me that if i want to make money on my art i need to do the same i.e. putting native Americans in my work (to cater to tourists her in Az) and i have noticed this many places i have visited… art doesn’t seem to sell if it holds any kind of darkness, or intense emotion, only if its some pretty landscape of some far off place, or politically iconic…sorry if im ranting but its very frustrating and i need to vent my frustrations at the moment…

i want to make money on my art, enough to support myself. but at the same time i don’t want to sell out my muse and resort to the aforementioned tourism…no offence but i find native american art a bit meh, and the idea of a white guy making and selling it doesn’t sit right with me.

even commission work doesn’t quite pan out for me. i just try and keep my chin up and be optimistic, i haven’t finished college yet and all

@greatalastor, Nope I totally know. Mom told me once that artists where I work – “Just put a chicadee in your work, it will sell”

I won’t resort to that. I’m not going to cater to someone else. If it isn’t appreciated enough to be bought, then it won’t be sold.
