post paintings and share names of artists who you think have really great sense of image design, shape. Brush calligraphy and the like.
Bonus points for paintings that are excellent that depict normal situations and aren't just epics (though if you want to drop some epics in this thread feel free)
Are you the same guy who had that great shape design thread a few months ago? I contributed to it a lot but accidentally let it die I think. Well we've had a couple threads like that now. Lemme look through my computer and post nice images that I haven't posted before.
Yes, Yoshida Hiroshis camp calls in all ur best paintings. Lets have a mountainside+fireside chat.
Winslow homer was such a beast, truely a lover of the sea
Mike Malm achieves a lot of the same things that Bumskee does, it's very nice to see this aesthetic
Just posting some random ones nabbed from an auction
Hm, not sure the artist sorry. I mostly saved stuff that was by Schmid and Situ from the auction, but there are random oens from artists I don't know. Some have their signatures on them some don't. The auction was called Jackson Hole Auction, nto sure if the images are still online or not.
Not even sure if this is the stuff you want posted lol, I'll look for different things
Gonna post a few Diarmuid kelley, one of my favourites, like a mix of Uglow and Linran.
I collect Toilet paper studies from famous artists, there's a really dramatic one by mullins where it's folded out like a cape top view but I'm not going through my mullins folder to find it, else I'll just be stuck admiring his stuff for the next week
Simple easy solutions to problems that might have taken weeks to figure out. Excellent massing of shapes is a favorite of mine. Especially if it's only evident in the grey scale
This one feels weird. The faces have obviously been photo referenced - too high density of detail compared to the rest of the piece? Picking apart why something doesn't work for you is just a good exercise as picking apart things that really make ur dig hard
Eh, I lik that one. And k I think I know what you want. I posted most of my sexy shapes folder in the last thread so the stuff I post now might not fit that super well.
aw yiss Jesse Powell has some slick landscape plein airs
dw about posting things that I don't like. I just want to discover more artists and see what people really enjoy looking at. My criteria will find strong paintings but the most feel-inducing pieces might not be following formula.
Manchess. Also funny this thread was started cause I mentioned 19th century stuff in the other thread and now I have only posted contemporary stuff hahaha
I've got a ton of this guy's stuff haha
Ray Roberts, some nice landscape stuff
bit obvious here, but everyone loves Sorolla
Forget who did this one, but nice mood
>those stories about students who started to cry when they saw him paint
The mega-main man himself Velasquez
Louis Daguere I think? Something close to that I can't spell french off the top of my head
basically everything Bill Cone touches has great shapes and colours
nah you'd just kill yourself cause they are inhumanly good
btw Im pretty much just posting random images from my folder haha, these are all in the unsorted section
it's fine man diggin' it tho I have to get going soon I'll drop 3 more images and then let this thread simmer for a while
Yeah I'll get to work soon too then
Never has smut been so academic
This guys water colors makes me mad. MAD mad at water and colors and then I want to draw the shit out everything. Damn
ho boy this one is good. I had to pump one more image in pure appreciation
Man I'm looking for a nude in my folder by someone whose name I forget and I cant find it fuckkkkk
>Never has academic smut been so high res!
I love this piece m8
found it, phew, gonna stop now
Ty for dumping with me, hope your back sometime within the next month so the thread doesn't 404 :*
Here's the old thread
No problem mate, I'll probably do a couple more rounds of dumping whenever I feel like it.
Wayne Barlowe's The Inferno Collection. Filename is the name of the Painting.
one more from Wayne Barlowe then I'll find some others.
Any more graphic artists like this guy? I feel like almost noone does this graphic crush of the world into elaborate patterns that still convey the subject matter beautifully
That's wild, man. I've never seen this stuff before. I just looked him up. Apparently he provided the some of the art for Disney's rendition of Sleeping Beauty. When I first saw the picture you have here, I recognized the style, just couldn't place it.
William Holman Hunt is incredible.
English watercolourist Ian Sidaway
His design is top notch
Another Schwabe (spelt correctly this time)
Your entitled to your opinion. Can you put on a trip so I can avoid it for the future?
Zhaoming wu also recently updated his site, good stuff
ahahaha he uses cargo! poor guy. big mistake. also explains why his site is completely broken and bugged right now.
if any of you are considering getting a folio site with a paid custom domain, do yourself a big favour and use squarespace. cargo is pretty shit.
I'll post up a bit more now I guess. Forget the artist on this one sorry.
Nope, sorry. I'm the same guy who posted the Jaime thread, I'm from Canada actually.
These are nice and also new to me :) Most of the other stuff in this thread I've seen before, so thanks!
Some of the art?
Earle was the driving force for that, he convinced walt to change the look of the entire movie.
Hes a fantastic artist. Theres lots of the early sleeping beauty concept art in the french art book, its something like 200usd, its lovely.
I love Earle so much
Have you seen this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAl9P4T12Rs
So simple a translation, if I hung out with Earle personally I'd probably end up doing super graphic work like that too, imagine being able to actually get critiques from such a pictorial design master.
Found this as well
Haven't watched it but it's Earle so can't be bad
Don't have time to do more dumps for now, but here is a bump to keep this alive.
This is actually a crop of a larger painting I believe.
Bumping because I want this thread to live.
Ah good these hi res sargent's I found today aren't too big to post :D
Last one of the sargent's, maybe I will post more hi-res stuff by other artists tomorrow, depends how I feel
Ooh Jouve! You're the only other person I've seen to post him. Did you learn about him when I posted him on /ic/ in the past?
And uh, I think the Gaston La Touche I posted is in Chicago? I forget, but I know I saved some images from a guy who photographed stuff there iirc.
Jacek Malczewski's self portrait, seen this in person, and was really amazed by the lighting
definitely not. however copying it in a very analytical way where you simplify every shape and reduce it into a primitive 3d object with the correct hue/value/temperature applied to every plane and correct edge sharpness connecting planes ontop of that... then yes.
but that would be incredibly fucking hard with this particular image. incredibly fucking hard.
Yes it probably would. Depends what you are trying to learn and what your goals are though. Depending on that it may be a good exercise, or may be rather inefficient, but either way I can guarantee you will learn something.
This painting makes me want to quit art. Fucking Boldini.
Love the tree designs and muted palette here. Wish he cropped off the two sides though and went for a vertical composition...
Mispelled his name here lol, there's no c in it. Dunno how this was made, the caption on it said it is oils and photos. In any case looks fucking awesomemeeeeememe
Gonna stop for now, will probably add more later
Cheers, glad someone else appreciates these paintings. Sometimes I feel as though no matter how good I get it will all be for nothing. All these old masters are forgotten and obscure and have no lasting impact. And I'm sure for every one that I post there are 100 more that I've never heard of.
Dagnan-Bouveret was 24 when he executed this study 0_0
You're on the start of a long journey of saving images. I'm probably around 5 or 6 years in and have tens of thousands of images saved? Very fun stuff.
I like the composition here.
Hehe nice! I got to see a large exhibit of Dore's work recently, and it was stunning how versatile he was and how prolific. Really awesome artist.
What's wrong with his faaaaaace?
Also, Egon Schiele. It's pretty obvious who he is but...
Bernie Fuchs....there are just waaaayyyy too many images of his that are extraordinary. I've saved a few hundred to my computer tonight, they are so amazing, truly a master of shape, design, and composition. This is just a random one.
This is a brilliant composition, love how it takes from the asian aesthetic of blossoms on a branch
Ugh he's disgustingly good I need to post a few more
I don't even know which ones to post
K I'll stop so there is still room in this thread for other artists :)
what do you guys think about August Macke?
to me, there is always a certain tranquillity and simplicity in his pictures.
agree lol. his work is utterly disgusting. if i was eating a nice pizza and suddenly BOOM egon schiele on my screen... pizza goes in the trash and i won't eat for the rest of the day.
dear god what in the fucking hell. there is some fucked up people on the loose in this world i tell ya.
click triangle next to post no.
Nah man I have a friend who's really into him though. Good to see that others like the Jouve!
i don't know they just seem very boring and lifeless both technically and creatively. there's just nothing there. this might sound overly harsh but to me they seem almost like those pencil celebrity copies girls post on instagram. there's nothing skillful or visionary in the paintings. the one with the couple has a hint of narrative, but it comes across as clumsy and not very eloquently portrayed (to me).
i don't think i can put it any better.
Yup I agree 100% with you that as soon as I saaw them I thought "these don't belong in this thread". It's hard to articulate what is wrong with them, they just scream bad taste. They are uninteresting, with bad colours and no artistic understanding of simplification or design.
