Which artists are your main influences?

if you dont have artists youve studied that have influenced you, kill yourself.
>>
I think I have too many small influences. I see art I really like all the time and I don't know which direction I want to go. It's only really happened a couple times, but each time I settle on some artist I want to be more like, soon after I start wondering "But do I really wanna be like this guy? This guy over here has really cool stuff too..." I've never been able to make an influence map because of it, and have no sense of style or direction in my own work, I hate it.

Mark Crilley
Chris Hart
Andy Warhol

That's a fucking painting? Christ.

>>2279548
yeah m8 his work is pretty stunning
>>
>>2279550
Man, I always said I never wanted to go that far into doing realism but it kinda sucks knowing I'll never be able to paint something like that. Beautiful work though, for sure.

Too many to list. All sorts of artists from the ancient to the contemporary world. Renaissance, Baroque, Expressionist, Abex, I'm inspired by artists from most every school and movement.

I guess I most admire paintings in an expressionist mode right now. Lovis Corinth, Lucian Freud, Max Beckmann, etc.

What if I have studied other works of art and taken influence but I'm really bad with names.
>>
>>2280515

then you are ungrateful amd disrespectful
>>
Doxydoo. The way he pools off color and anatomy make me want to become the best I can be
>>
>>2280566
I'll never know their names because people don't sign their works. Can't respect someone who don't respect their self.
>>
>>2280571
Reverse image search is a thing you know. If you have an image it is usually very easy to track down the artist.
>>
>>2280515
I was in the same boat man, and still I am partially

the brain is not like a muscle, if it was, getting better at something would transfer 100% in getting better at everything else

but is more like the entire muscular system. getting your biceps bigger won't make you run faster, but will help you lift shit. learning to sing won't make you better at maths, but it will make you better at thinks which require timing

I was also very bad at learning names (4 years with the same 30 guys in class and I still ended high school not knowing 2-3 girls name, west europe school system in which you don't change your classmates unless you quit or change school)

but after I started playing osu! I could finally sing/ dance without going ahead, and remembering names, poems, paragraphs was easier than ever

you have to find something which trains your exact part of the brain which is responsible for such things

(btw I suppose you also have problem with rhythms, isn't that right?)

The funny thing is I was the one person you didn't reply to, because I didn't list anyone. Find something to do with your time.
>>
>>2281772
the funny thing is, anyone can be anonymous, anon. its pretty cute that you made up such a cute little excuse for your arrogance. go back to drawing, kid.
>>
>>2281786
The only one defending their arrogance is you, I made the very first reply in the thread, the one with the American Vampire cover, and it's the only one you didn't reply to. You can tell yourself otherwise just as you do about your opinions being important enough to attention whore like you're doing, but lying to yourself won't make it true. Again, find something to do with your time.
>>
>>2281821
anon, i did reply to that post. you have shit taste. I have all the right to talk down on you, pleb.
>>
>>2281828
Doesn't matter anyway, I still didn't list anyone as an influence, my whole post was about how I can't decide, so I can't feel insulted that you don't like my taste in no particular artists. You have no right to talk down to anybody unless you're better than any artist posted in this thread and everyone who posted them, but you already proved nobody should take you seriously when you used "kid", so good luck spreading your soon forgotten opinions.

hey man, it would be dumb if i pretended to be influenced by Rubens or some shit just to be accepted by strangers on a tibetan whistlecarving forum.

im honest - yoji shinkawa was why i started painting, and i frequently try to emulate parts of his style. im not going to lie to impress you.

if you dont like it, piss off and go jerk off over beethoven or something you pretentious wrinkly fuck.
