Your piece here clearly reflects anger that is being expressed by the subject. I especially love how you used the technique of applying the paint and brushstrokes to recreate the image you used. I also love how the use of your composition and shading clearly show the direction of light and I was wondering if I could reference this in my research for my 3rd year project at university? and also if you could message me your techniques and processes of creating this piece? of course credit will go to you and if you are interested I can refer you and your work to my classmates too. Anyway thanks for your time and hoping to hear from you, Adam.

I like this concept. Everyone always draws anger like an explosion. Like something shooting out of you. The release part.
I don't think of anger that way. Those sharp ideas, those explosions are just the consequence of anger.
Real anger is inside, bubbling. Trapped. Pushing upwards.

did you use a reference photograph for this? how big is this in real life?
FuzzleFire's avatar
I did; I built the reference with my own photos, manipulated them in photoshop, I drew the reference onto the board with pencil, and then painted it. It's about 12x24 inches.

Really good. :) I wouldn't link it with anger though, more frustration. But it's really really good and expressive.

Thanks; I definitely agree with that; Someone else mentioned it too :p I should probably change the title...

Nice one fuzz, great sense of emotion. Although Id kinda say it looks a little more like breaking down from grief, or.. frustration/stress.
For anger/fury I'd suggest more wrinkles around the nose/top of the nostrils, also try and bring the eyebows in a more V formation..

Then again maybe this is from a photo of someone whose anger just looks like this =p. Either way getting better fuzz, the lighting is great.

Thanks-- I definitely agree. This is more of a "stressed out" look. Although, it may also be evident that I screwed up the proportions a bit; I think I'm going to revisit this picture, maybe do another one to help me understand better. I'm finding your advice about digital painting is helping me to create some good thumbnails (as well as paintings). Maybe that's how I should start the next one =]

Glad to hear my rambling scatter gun advice is useful in some way =d
You're going a good direction fuzz, keep at it.

Did you use a reference photograph for this?
FuzzleFire's avatar
yup; I took a pic of my brother. I do wish the proportions were better in my reproduction.
