Is kim jung gi better than Michelangelo? Or better than any old master at all?
Is he autistic?
This autistic faggot pushing the "kim jung gi better than michelangelo" meme again.
you cant draw boxes? you'e trash kill yourself.
Well, a bunch of various stuff. I like Moebius, Edmund Dulac, Paul Bonner, Takashi Murakami, pre-raphaelite paintings (especially "Golden Stairs" by Burne-Jones), I like 3D by Bagiński/Platige Images, a bunch of polish artists like Malczewski or Wyspiański, there's this schizo art of yukaman that is just neat...well, I have lots of different stuff saved and not saved.
It's hard to say for me. Some stuff just "clicks" for me, I think "ooh, that's clever" or that concept is intriguing. Well and obviously I like stuff like comics and manga due to storytelling, but art there can be good and inspiring too.
Ooh, and now that I think of it, I really like what Chris Ware does with comic layout and his clean style. Plus of course depressing storytelling helps.
>I don't think he concerned..
Clearly, but it's not because I'm autistic, it's because he is bad at composition.
There is no flow or make up, and often the perspective gets skewed it various directions. It's just a bunch of highly detailed clutter from imagination, and for a piece of art that is not a good thing.>>2381865
You don't understand what I'm getting at. He's simply not concerned with it. It has nothing to do with being bad at it. It's obvious he's just drawing whatever for it's own sake, with no real thought behind it because it's unnecessary, it's not what he's aiming to accomplish. He's not creating some artistic masterpiece, he's just drawing with a free mind - unbound by restrictions like composition - as if he was drawing in a sketchbook for shits and gigs.
It doesn't really matter why he does it that way. His compositions suck, even on the pieces he isn't just doodling around with.
It's fine if he doesn't care, but the lack of structure means his drawings aren't that appealing.
I'd say you're the dull one here.
>he drawing freely!
Okay and it sucks. Good for him being relaxed, but the composition is horrible.
>He's not creating a masterpiece
Agreed, but the thread is about him being a master and I said he wasn't.
It doesn't matter his reasons, he's incapable of good composition. That means as an artist he's lacking and he's far from master level.
You seem to be arguing some random point you never cared to define, the point is his art always lacks in many important points so the answer to op is no.
Even purely aesthetic paintings usually tell some story through their composition (see mentioned before by me Golden Stairs). Meaningless art is meaningless and even heavily abstracted shit tries to convey some sort of feeling or impression to viewer like those Rothko "few random colours man" paintings.
Seems like a no brainer. Just draw a box, and put shit in it. You just keep in mind the proportions relative to a box, and then you draw things in relation to the box. Makes a lot of sense if you can understand it well enough. Pic related. I'm ass, I know. But I think I understand where KJG is coming from. Makes sense that he can start at arbitrary places too, you've just gotta keep in mind the box. In the pic I made, I drew the stuff on top of my desk before I drew my desk, because the box already set the entire scene, so it don't matter where you start. I could work on my lines/take more time on this shit, but It all makes a lot of sense.
Did this one digitally. The box really tells you a lot about how a picture is going to look. Once you've got the box down, you just have to focus on other BS, like anatomy, which I'm still trying to learn.
He understands texture, weight and mass and uses these to focus on clothes, machinery, accessories, etc, to hide the fact that drawing highly detailed, anatomically accurate bodies is a completely different task that would take another decade for him to master.
Don't get me wrong, he's very talented but not impossible to achieve.
>If you think he doesn't understand color and light kys
ummmmmm. maybe im just not seeing the genius you guys are but pic very related.
also michelangelo's understanding of perspective wasn't fucked beyond repair
Real talk, beyond trying to one up Terada Katsuya's Rakugaking book. (This is fact, maybe his singular goal.)
What did KJG do before all the exhibition/self publication stuff? His first sketchbook was 2007. Had a variety of styles. Included small comics vignettes but i haven't found of any of his works published aside from Spy Games. Did he work in animation/korean manga?
I greatly admire his ability to create the illusion of depth via freehand. I do think his BIG compositions are way too cluttered to be compelling. They just look like a better version of what one doodles during a boring history class, i.e. adding characters until you fill up the page.
That said, overcrowded compositions are obviously his schtick. He's capable of drawing stuff that isn't a visual cacophony, but that's not what people who say "WOW HE DID THAT FREEHAND?!EPICEST ARTIST EVER OOOOOO" want to pay for.
>michelangelo's understanding of perspective wasn't fucked beyond repair
implying kjg perspective is fucked. nigga, that's he's strongest point, next to a wide knowledge of how different stuff look
and comparing those 2 pics you posted, it's michelangelo which lacks in perspective, but it's his human anatomy tops kjg
For those who want to learn how to draw like him
Peter Han of CGMA and concept design academy and the Art Center of Pasadena can do smiliar shit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzBmmU24ssg
You can learn from him on the cheap too
Whats with all of this "he's autistic" nonsense? Usually, when people seem to correlate "artistic talent" to a mental health problem, it usually means that the person is a good copier then anything(and we all know how much the masses love photorealistic art)
