>Post drawings with god tier aesthethics.
I don't think you know what aesthetics means. It's just the study of beauty. You might as well just say "post good art" or "post art you like", aesthetics are already inherent in visual art.
Yeah I guess I just meant classy looking drawings with original elements to them as opposed to the generic well painted fantasy landscape or warrior I see posted here every day.
Anyways I'll go get some sleep now I'll post more tomorrow, keep posting pls
If you've been on this board for a while I think you should have noticed that the art which people believe to have 'god tier aesthetics' posted in this thread is very different from what you would get if you asked them to post art they like, so that shows that the two terms aren't synonymous as /ic/ is concerned. It really depends on how you see the relation between art and beauty man, which depends on how you answer the question of what constitutes good aesthetics and good art in the first place. I'd argue that something can have pleasing aesthetics without being good art and something can be good art without having pleasing aesthetics.
oh fuck, i just got an artboner
What I love about good movie backgrounds (Ghibli backgrounds in particular) is that they know their role as part of a greater whole. They don't try to be too in your face or draw your attention in the ways conceptart and commercial art in general tends to do, unless that's their purpose. Subtlety is a beautiful thing.
Plenty of art I like I don't like because it's really aesthetically pleasing.
There's definitely a crossover but I think OP's request stands separate from "post art you like"
Vehicles and enviroments drawn by belgian comic book artists always does it for me.
What? Are you referring to the picture posted in >>2360997? Because the artist is in the filename, look him and his contemporaries up if you want similar art.
But what I meant in that post is that there is art I like for what it depicts, but that doesn't always mean it's depicted in a way that's exceptionally aesthetically pleasing.
Whereas, by contrast, I think a picture with really good aesthetics can be pleasing even if the subject matter isn't engaging. I don't particularly like fish but I really like the OP image, for example.
Life drawings by another belgian artist, Virginie Augustin. Pretty jizz worthy if you ask me
Spirou is one of the most representative comic book series of the belgian school, you could start there. It has a lot of cars and enviros in it. Also just google belgian comic books in general
I like the painterly animu aesthetic desu
colors, composition, and rendering style are all very similar to james jean before he went all artsy fartsy graphic designy.
Not talking about the subjects.
the most common thing copied from jean is the pink/purple wolf/tiger thing surrounded by design smoke. They are all just to familiar and similar to one another. There are always knock off artists. The Loish knock offs james jean,, the kawasaki knock offs, and Sam Web knock offs are some of the most common though.
Purely aesthetic painting and I think my favourite one. There's just something that draws me to it every time.
>cartoony knight on graphic background
don't you get bored trying so hard to be jaded?
yeah cus thats all there is to that painting ya dumb fuck.
It's like that thread where they artist used the FMA graphic. The majority of ic didn't get it. I'm pretty sure most of you guys are literally retarded at this point.
There's nothing wrong with drawing inspiration from artists you admire. They may have elements similar to a well known style, but if they're bringing something new to the table, what's the problem?
>mfw everything OP posted aside from the fishes is garbage taste
>Edgemax sir edge-a-lot
Im not that poster, and there really is no problem. But it really speaks to how distinct James Jean work is. Consider if artists in the music field did the same thing. Tons and tons of pop punk bands aping i dunno, greenday or something. It's not bad at all, but it's very hard to create and evolve a distinct voice (whether in music of in visual arts) that no one can call their own and yet imitates. It's a whole nother level above just being able to render gold and black fishes.
im trying to get into politics to make aesthetics real
I vote to have a thread like this put up as a sticky all the time, where everybody can post what they like
but we might need some rules about art discussions, like limit ourself to just asking for source or something, and not discussions on what one likes or dislikes
this might serve as a good place to find art we like (while scrolling over what we don't) as well as to see what kind of taste those which come here have
There's no real need for that, since it can just be a normal thread we have every now and then, as it's been in the past.
Stickies and generals are cancerous in any case. I die a little inside every time I look at the most active threads on /ic/ because usually 80% are the same shitty generals we've had for years now. The board culture that segregating different aspects of art into their own threads according to a single, unchanging formula has created is just stupid. People have created their own little subcommunities within /ic/ and as a result the moment the different groups come in contact with eachother they just point at the respective group and say 'go back where you belong', so there's no real discourse going on.
The further down I scroll down the worse it gets.
Images at the top ARE godtier though
I've been a lurker for more than a year and this is the first time I see suck a thread
and if you make a rule of not posting opinions, but just being allowed to post art and ask for source, you can stop the cancer before it grows
also suck a thread could help mature the board, ppl will not see just the art from their subcommunities, but art from different ppl with different taste. and they will not be able to bitch about it since the ''no opinions rule''
that will teach them to ignore what they don't like and move along
4chan is unique for it's criticism and perspective on things, taking that away is retarded.
go to tumblr if you don't want to get triggered by comments that hurt your feelings because they shit over the style happen to like
So many good things in this thread. You all have top tier aesthetic taste.
With an image created by a different artist before JJ was even famous. Do people realise that James Jean is massive cuck (literally) who stole all his ideas from the wapanese and marvelised it.
pls d/ic/ks learn your history. JJ does do not own the painterly flat render, smoke, overly composed messy drawings etc. Stop accusing everyone of being his derivative.
kno, knot yet. Lets 1st try to get yur eyes up to standard so u kan undurstand and appreciaate good aesthatics.
I could show you good examples, but what would be the point? You wouldn't know what to look for and wouldn't be able to understand it to appreciate it, even if you found it. So for now try to answer the question.
If you want to be enlightened you first have to be accept what is being taught.
Reminds me of Vania's work for some reason.
Five seconds on google prove you wrong. You sounds like you took a class called Aesthetics and now think that's all it means.
The word can be used like OP intended. One can differentiate between a Art Deco aesthetic and a modern Anime aesthetic.
so what you're saying is it comes down to stylistic preferences, ergo this is another "post art you like/ post your favorite art" thread? because OP already addressed this, and said this was not his intent.
The guy seem to be correcting OP on his use of the word aesthetics when OP was not wrong. But yes, OP's post would imply to post art that has aesthetics that one likes, which is subjective.
Excuse the bad crop and resizing. But does anybody know why this shit happens with the soft brush on really dark value backgrounds? It looks so terrible.
enlighten me specifically, at least.
What is the big secret?
You make it sound like good aesthetics are totally objective, and you can easily quantify them within a formula.
If you can't do that for me, then you're forcing me to assume that you'll sputter some bullshit that I can ultimately boil down to "beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
No matter how many fancy words you wrap around it, I do not believe for a fucking second that you know, objectively and beyond all doubt, what makes a good composition with "god tier aesthetics"
Fuck off out of here with your collegiate sophistry. You don't know a damn thing, and you can't articulate a damn thing because you don't know how because you don't fucking know what you're on about.
>You make it sound like good aesthetics are totally objective, and you can easily quantify them within a formula.
If you were an actual competent person you would have seen that I was implying it to be an acquired taste, that you have to learn how to appreciate it firstly.
This whole "objective" thing is just you spouting off /ic/ nonsense because of some personal difficulty you have with learning new ideas about art. The hardest thing with arrogant anons like you is that you refuse to see art history as a core fundamental. You sit around consuming pretty pictures with no understanding of them, other than the superficial qualities. And when tasked with explaining those pretty pictures you fall on your face using cliche rhetoric suited for a pisshole like /ic/.
Pious artwork is best artwork.
Man, I needed this thread. Makes me realise why I loved art in the first place.
I like the disproportionate extremities.
I honestly think you gotta let that stigma go. High school is over man.
You either like something or you don't. Fuck what other people think.
We don't live long enough, as corny as that sounds it's true.
Also, this is really well made work.
If this James Jean guy went all artsy fartsy graphic designey, as you say, then shouldn't it be a good thing someone took up his style?
Fucking everything's been done before. That's no reason not to try it again.
Nothing more hipster than calling things hipster
In any case that work is about a decade old or something, he was really ahead of it.
I really looked up to his work when I was in highschool, and then had no way to find it again until now at 25 I find out he illustrated an album of a band I love. Based fate. pic unrelated but I like that rough animu speedpaint thing.
By the way they criticize it and call it "deviantart-tier" even though she has an extremely good grasp of art. Though I do admit she has been falling off over the past year, probably trying less cus she has a huge fanbase and supporters now.
why it´s so hard to believe?
Stay tuned by way. Next update coming in a few months :)
You're shit, m8. :^)
