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.
and possibly what could be his modern counterpart
yeah m8 his work is pretty stunning
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.
Jason Shawn Alexander.
Philip Guston, Richard Diebenkorn, Mark Rothko, Piet Mondrian, Picasso, Elizabeth Murray, Cy Twombly, Paul Cezanne, Vincent van Gogh, Francisco de Goya, Rembrandt van Rijn, Michelangelo de Caravaggio, JMW Turner, Alberto Giacometti, the Paleolithic artists.
What if I have studied other works of art and taken influence but I'm really bad with names.
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 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.
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.
Really love Mary Cassat's pastel pictures. Always influences me when I do pastel
I want to be like him so bad...
name? can't read signature.
i like Robert Valley's stuff. you can tell it's heavily stylized intentionally, but he does it really well and appealingly.
if the women turns you on, chances are its Frazetta
Probably a common influence, but Rembrandt my nigga.
I like his sketches more than his paintings even if his paintings are very good.
This guy. I want to draw that semi-realistic weeb shit.
Also, hjl and white datura. I wouldn't mind being a cheap knockoff of them, with the hope of becoming an expensive knockoff in time.
This painting changed my life when I saw it irl, I looked at it four 40 minutes I think
> white datura
>it's an anonymous retard replying to all post kind of thread.
forgot to write catbib
