I've recently discovered his work and bought one of his artbooks, it's the title in the OP.
I've begun scanning it as I want some of his pictures without paying tons of cash, but the thing is that the images will need to be cleaned among other things. Any Nagelphile up to the task? Or know how I would do it?
Scanning a book is a really hard job.
You need to despine the book or else many pages will have a blur because of the spine.
You need a very good scanner and some twers in phtoshop.
So unless you want to trash your book don't bother.
You're an aspiring pinup artist and you don't know who Patrick Nagel is? This makes me angry.
OP Nagel actually printed a ton of his work officially back in the day, his work was really popular hence all the nail salon copy-cats. Last time i checked you could randomly find his stuff on craigslist pretty cheap, all framed up.
how do you even reply with all those dicks in your ass and mouth? Seriously, you are the biggest faggot on 4chan
I would love to see your work. Someone that thinks nagel is bad at anatomy and proportions has to be seriously delusional. I guarantee your work is absolute dogshit. The sad part is you probably spend alot of time doing studies and reading art books too.
Just think about that for a bit anon. How shitty of anartist are you? No one will EVER pay money for your art. No one will ever have prints of your art hanging on their walls. You're going to be a 60 year old faggot that tells stories of the time of "oh I use to paint and doodle when I was in highschool" and no one will fucking care. No one will ever fucking care about you or your art. THat's how fucking shitty you are.
Don't even have to see your art to tell you're worthless. You're just one of those jealous faggots that constantly says negative shit about everyone else's art and blames the world why no one likes your work. "Oh i'ts because I don't paint women or fanart that's why no one likes my work. I use only my imagination like a true artist does not these hacks like nagel". You are that faggot. Think about all of that and just fucking kill yourself already. You're worthless and no one would care.
You could literally say the same about Liefeld, Tracey Emin or even fucking Christ Chan.
I don't deny that hacks can experience success, plebs have poor taste and bad art is acceptable to their unrefined palette, that's how it is most of the time, actually great artists like Vermeer can quite easily go unappreciated.
I'll try and dumb this down for you - you're like some retard on /v/ saying Guitar Hero is a better game than SOTC just because it sold better.
You can see that this was scanned from a magazine because you can see the type on the reverse side. Try putting a black sheet of construction paper behind the page and scan it again. This might help lessen the appearance of see through text. I'm guessing the inside scanner lid is white.
I'll download the images after you're done uploading all the pages. Then I will crop out and resize the images. Clean them up a bit in photoshop. Add in other high resolution copies of his work and compile it into a folder and upload to mega/MF.
