Bernie Wrightson is unsurpassed in my book
Meant to put this in the OP, my absolute favourite
Nicolas Delort is also great, I can't find some of the higher res drawing of his though
There was a drawing by the same artist who made this study of a sitting woman with cloth wrapped around her waist and her arms above her head, can't find it
Can't link to it now since I'm on my phone but I've seen him block in the black ink then go back in with white in a dip pen
>oh god the water reaches under my knees I'm finished
Haha bitch just like walk away. You don't even need to swim like you can literally wade across that shit with ease.
Pretty retarded painting to be honest family.
She's trapped in a prison cell during a flood, and regardless the image isn't depicting her under threat from the water. She died of tuberculosis.
Study art history a little.
> Pretty retarded
> Uses the term "family"
>Study art history a little.
The life of a random russian princess has very little to do with the history of art, you are more likely to know about her through image search -> reading the wikipedia article rather than having heard any art lesson featuring her or the minor russian artist who portrayed her in that painting.
Not even the guy you're replying to desu senpai.
The painting has to do with the history of art though dingus. You learn the story through exposure to it, unless you literally are just "hurr look at da pretty pictures" and nothing else.
Also, if you understand being able to google and discern the facts about an image, there's no reason to make up some dismissive speculative nonsense about it's narrative.
Sure, if you just wait around for others to teach you about art I guess that's true.
TL;DR Defending ignorance. Also a weeaboo.
Ok lets see what happening in this thread
>old engravings (implying you actually will be inspired by those limitied drawings)
Ok ic never change.
you better not be mike... but yes his color choices are nice.
>I don't care if somebody is inspired by anime but they got no place next to those line drawings and sources of inspiration wasn't the subject. Those drawings show a great amount of skill and how you can tell a lot a lot with simple means. While the animu is over polished and made with less skill. Not to mention stuff like image composition.
not letting you run away.
Not the op who posted that but I think that kind of deliberate style juxtaposition is what makes an otherwise bland piece interesting, not that this is one is the best example of it but yeah. Similar thing could be said about this one too, the artist just chose a different way to push it >>2318876 Whether either of those is up to taste is up to you though and of course /ic/ is above the animuhs.
Jean-Paul Colbus did some illustrations for a chess book that teaches children/begginers, and I'm obsessed with them. I might buy a copy of the book just for the pictures.
And a cover, the only high resolution scan of any of those illustrations that I know of. Maybe the illustrations in the book are just exceptionally tiny.
The meme is actually true, but you still can copy somebody elses style and you will never be able to do your own drawings if you refuse to learn to draw something more real, justo go ahead and make your own manga
What's even the point
solid artist tho, pity sjws got up his ass
>implying they're not the most patrician fetish
Fritz Koch-Gotha's illustrations for Waldi.
It's the reason I love his art. Sexy but still cute
Some stuff from the KlK art book is great
I really like the way they draw cherubs in a lot of these older drawings
drawing by gustav klimt, toward the end of his life as he was losing his sight.
>Ya'll talkin GOAT's without Velazquez.
I have a copy of Frankenstein with Bernie Wrightson's illos. I think in the intro it mentions that some of them took him a whole month or some shit. The book has at least 20 illustrations almost as detailed as that one.
anyone make an influence map? also it'd be nice to post the names to your influences if they're not already in the filename
i had to do a master study of that mead schaeffer one, it was pretty fun to paint her
You doing a great job shitposting, m8.
not enough Franklin Booth in this thread
Thanks op saved my life i was gonna cut my hands off in a suicide attempt, i hate my life its shit all i had left was art and you gave me the strength to live on. thank your from the bottom off my heart :^)
His Tron stuff looks a lot better imo.
Completely disagree. He makes use of shape and light in such a way, that makes his work look much more detailed than it actually is. His brush economy is amazing.
Comparing it to a PS filter is pretty undermining.
I do see what he means, though. I've seen photos gone through filters that have a similar look to them as his train station piece. It's reminiscent.
Not to try and shit-talk the skill required to do it, though, and of course even if you were to put a photo through the filter lighting and composition is still important.
The louvre Rohan special has the best art I've seen araki make but I haven't scanned it yet
Just got into drawing, thanks for this. Finally finished making mine
Which pieces? I think he usually has strong colour. Maybe you are mistaking limits of printing technology at the time? Often they would print only one or maybe a couple colours because of limits in technology or to save money. So he would have to paint with very limited hues. All the illustrators of the time dealt with that. Here's a Cornwell that only uses orange: http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y141/igallo/DeanCornwell.jpg
attalllog just doesn't give a fuck
I'm not super familiar with Leyendeckers work, so i dont have any examples, it's just something i've sometimes noticed when looking at his work. I think there are some problems with the one i originally replied to tho, like her skin for example, it's completely dead and boring, and the use of orange clues here and there comes off as a bit tacky and hastily done. But printing technology hadn't even crossed my mind, and it's obviously the reason why. Now i can appreciate his work way more.
my fucking man
