Thanks in regards to “You surely turned into a complete artist in such small time.” but I don’t see it as I do what looks right…but I do relaise as it has been pointed out to me before if I don’t think too much about composition and get it right, mostly, then I must have a natural flair for it. This may be true or it may be a case of sticking visually with the rule of third etc.
As for art in everyday life, I agree, gardening is another passion of mine. Living art, each season year on year the picture changes…love that so much.
So for reading books, big problem there for me. But thanks for the snipets. What I need is to go back to college and do an art course to learn the fundementals and understand and realise I am using them and how well.
I think that is my problem not being exposed to much art in my life well apart from Constable, my dad took me to an exhibition when Constable was on tour and came to NZ. smile Plus I am still learning about colours and how the compliemnt or contrast…I am always looking at my colour wheel. smile
My main problem is bringing all these aspects in to every image I do. Some I think of other aspects and some I forget. When I get them right then I am happy with the results.
Experiment; yes I do all the time with evey image. This is one reason I try not to do same things, not get stuck in an artistic rut so to speak.
Again thank you for taking to time to share I have learnt a lot from this and the other posts you have made.


Its a pleasure to share!

Yes, going to school is always good, you would get in touch with all kinds of different influences and ideas, but there is a tendency of getting only what is new, and forgetting the old ways.


Oh, of course!!! Here, you can also see and hear Gombrich book in a series of lectures: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEgpUgOXq28

Of course if you can go to art museums it would be an invaluable experience, but a good practice is to buy an art book every month or two at Amazon or Barnes. One of that big ones, full of images. We never read the text, but to look at the photos is fenomenal. I also subscribe to some art magazines on Zinio (http://www.zinio.com). They are really cheap and this way I can see some of what today artists are doing. Also, there are many photography sites around in the web, I like to make searches and just see what people posts.
Another thing I do, if parents or friends are going Europe, I ask them to send me museums catalogs. Tons of great reproductions on these.
Thinking of our medium with DS/Poser, its also great to pay attention to sculptors. Rodin is a favorite of mine, and Degas.

Also many videos about Arnheim: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=rudolph+arnheim&oq=rudolph+arnheim&gs_l=youtube.3…19679.21910.0.22935.8.8.0.0.0.0.313.1541.2j2j3j1.8.0…0.0…1ac.1.z14JaNZ77k4

There are some videos with Umberto Eco also, but they will deal basically with semiotics, another topic I really like, but not what we are talking about here.

I guess the main thing is story of art (I dont know if this is really true or I think that only because I like it (: ), to know the ideas and influences that made techniques to flourish and die, arriving to our time where all ideas and techiniques are valid, a truly special moment in history we dont appreciate enough.


About you being a complete artist: you are, and you not feeling it is even more confirmation: an artist must keep learning and growing all the time, the moment he thinks he is complete, he stops… we should follow Socrates here: the more we know, more we will know what we dont know (yet I hope (: ).

Very nice Szark smile

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

Here is what I have been working on for a while now and I have a long way to go until it is finished. I want to render this really big so I can print it off and hang it on the wall.

Rendered in DS3A as 4.5 would crash with all that in one scene. Plus a lot of postwork to add the atmosphere and sun/rays.

I had to make some new signs in blender too, that was fun to do and yes I have been told about the spelling mistake. smile

Thanks Jaderail
It is going to take a while to finish. I am guessing around 6 months or so.

That’s dedication, but I understand. I’m six months in on my Primitves project and still not ready to start yet.

I collect Poster Size 3D stuff done by the users here. I hope you offer it for Print when done. I have a place on my wall just perfect for it.

That is the plan to sell prints of it.

“I’m six months in on my Primitves project ” what is that then I am intrigued?

I’m working on following a small Family group (Think Mammoth hunters) through a full year of life. All renders only, Text to support the story but the renders will speak the words. Finding items has been the hard part.

Cool project I look forward to seeing you start.

Tell me about it I need a number of things for my project all wishlisted for now. Each month I will get something to go in to the scene. This is another reason why it will take so long. smile I am going to model some more signs and a futuristic tram/train too. Plus a newsstand like you have never seen before. I have already sketched the design, now I just need to make it.

Oh and that first sign above I didn’t model the Hoverboard just the support. The Hoverboard was a freebie many moons ago but it came with no readme and no mats so I had to make some textures but first I had to save out the uvmapping with Blender and strip out some geometery.
