    You read too deeply into things, Adam. Commonly taking things out of context too.

    I get what you meant. I'm just going further on since we're listing what genres we dislike.

    They're certainly expressing themselves. I wouldn't necessarily call it art though...



    As for philosophy, I'd rather define it as something that makes you think.

    Hmm, many people say that. I have no intention to generalize or label you under characteristic traits. But. You don't need to necessarily enjoy pieces under the catergory of expressionism in order to appreciate them. At best you could except that it is a fairly personal piece of work that expresses one's feelings or intepretations (well you know the definition). I rather enjoy good pieces of expressionism, half the fun is trying to figure what the message(s) are and just appreciate how they put it together on a canvas. None of us have the right to define what exactly art is.

    It would need to be more than just scribbles though =P The example you have given Brawny is a good one.

That same sketchwork appearance has been mimicked and turned into its own art form centuries later.

    The word that's actually being used incorrectly, is Realism, but that requires too much effort to explain...so I'm sure we all know what we mean when it's used in here.

    "Realism" and Cartoon are like two opposites, so DR.MARIO's opinions aren't unusual. The catch, though, is that the opposing strengths allow an artist of one to always learn from an artist of the other. The beauty of cartoon is its abstract, various approach. The beauty of realism is its orderly approach. I feel that getting caught up in either without acknowledging the other makes that artist too limited. To excel in both makes you unstoppable. In art, you pretty much have to tolerate everything equally.



    That's kind of my philosophy as an artist. In my style, I tend to like walking a signature bridge between "realistic" and cartoon since I find merits within both approaches that I like to use. I think extremes of either can be too uninteresting (pure cartoon can often feel too ridiculous...pure realism can often feel too unexpressive) I appreciate attraction of minimalism and contour in cartoon and the power of depth and recognition with "realism". (Hence my avatar and sig)

    Oh crap, I'VE BEEN SPOTTED!

    agreed

    thats why I love your style. I try the same thing. Even on things such as Sonic (my specialty ) Often showing the fur, shading, wrinkles and lines on his hands, fabric of his gloves, etc.

    Darn I wish I could draw.

    I can paint, do mosaics and photography. But drawing a simple face eludes me. I blame the hand cramps from too much gaming

As well as those who do digital art such as drawing on the computer, calling them cheaters and claiming they couldn't recreate their work on a real canvas.

    Too bad you felt the need to type in caps to try and 'win' the argument against me, following with a "I still win". You really offended me, and it's hard to forget that.
    Oh thank you so so much. I've been trying to tell him this for the longest time. Not like he'll listen. ;D

    ...Art for me means making something pretty. I don't think I'd have anything to do throughout my childhood if not. It's horrible to think what I'd be doing without it. xD
    I love you, Adam.

    Thanks! I don't often get compliments on my "style".

    Interestingly, Sonic the Hedgehog has a lot to do with my drawing as well. I started drawing out with drawing only Sonic for most of my childhood, who was also my specialty before I moved on to people and human figures. Sonic inspired me to get into drawing in the first place, actually (as well as gaming).

    Same here

    As a kid my notebook was filled with Sonic. And Spaz (The artist for the Sonic the Hedgehog comic books) inspired me to become a better artist. His unique style was so amazing to me when I was young.

    Exactly. Spaz is pretty much godlike.

    Haha, so you collected the comics, too. That was where my inspiration developed, and I'm sure yours as well.
