Critiques


Cool design. Well drawn and shaded. I like it. ^ ^ Cut away section of top floor is cool, but IMO, you should also have drawn the same ...

Refocusing on why I'm here at all...onto more positive things.

The world of art is an evolving place, a bit like a galaxy or universe, where each planet or moon is like an artistic person. Each has their own climate, rules, winds and seas of inspiration that mold them creatively. Like planets any eco-sphere, it takes an ongoing process of many factors within, to make and produce works via output. These processes to art just are, and rarely can be explained by other than the artist themselves.

In times of old, artists would orbit near each other, and instead of compliment a fellow artist, would instead attack and criticize each others works. The truth would be that both artists works had their own merit, and art fans of the day, would have that choice to decide, who they liked more.

To date and possibly always, there will be those in the world, who do not see eye to eye on art and creativity, and such people are usually those who do not go through or know the process to conceive and make art. There views may be of a more conservative nature, that art is for stuffy galleries, or to be censored for lest they corrupt minds, to other thoughts, than those traditionally and dominantly pushed, by the wheels of populous. Rarely have I visited a gallery, but I can appreciate those who take the time to, and the works within. Some art I like, and others I sidestep and that's okay, as others may do too.

One of the reasons its important for any artist/creative to know, and be about their relationship with themselves and their works, is because without our own eyes and mind, there would be no art at all, let alone anyone to enjoy and critique it. So, even I take heart in that when I make something, I understand it, or when I see something that inspires me (be it clip art, photo ref, pose, form, light etc), that was my choice to select whatever was selected, and I do not ever expect others, especially those who do not create things, to understand my mind or process to art. The same will be different for others, and I try o be careful, in not becoming one who critiques, more than one who makes. Each to their own, mind, but this is kind of expanded thinking and view, is one of the reason creating is still my calling in life, come what may. I try to be open to as much art old and new, and the wider world besides, my medium.

Next time you are browsing art, tale, movie etc, be sure to enjoy, and not be too over critical, if you can't understand the strings that make the art beneath. Prejudging comes real easy sometimes, for others who don't art at all.

Peace
