On photo-realistic traditional artwork
A few days ago I made a poll for my journal: Is it a good idea to make a portrait so realistic it is largely indistinguishable from a photo? http://arielrgh.deviantart.com/journal/poll/1717713/ What do you think? I'd love to read your comments and your opinion in this matter. As a hobby, I like to draw pencil portraits myself, and submit my work to several groups related to the subject.
Well... I said portraits, and from here onwards I'll refer to portraits but it can be also applied for nature scenes, still lives, and so on.
Do you guys know the work of the famous Russian painter Ilya Repin? If you don't, go take a look: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilya_Repin (Check the Religious Procession in Kursk Province. Seriously, it's insane, although in a good way... you could swear it's a photo!) On the other extreme of this, and contemporary to Repin there were the French Impressionists, which proclaimed that what mattered was the impression more than the full realism of a given work

How to create space art
I'll cut right to the chase! This news article will be about tutorials and resources related to space and space art. In an attempt to bring order in this chaos we call life, art and news articles I'll try my best to classify the resources and the tutorials into categories - knowing all too well that those classifications are arbitrary. Enough of that though, let us begin.
Space art can be divided in a number of sub genres, in this article I'll talk about two such categories (again knowing all too well a lot of space art falls in neither of these categories); classic space art and terraspace. Your typical space scene usually consists of one or several space elements and celestial bodies, such as planets, nebulas and stars. In terraspace another dimension is added. The "camera" or point of view is not located in outer space, but on the ground. The space elements are then put in the sky. To achieve this, the artist often have a stock photo of an up-close environment in the foreground (tra

July 24th: It's been some time but I think it's finally time to start a new project. Haven't been very focused on art lately with vacation still in full swing.  

:bulletblue: Pencil piece: Surprise motif
July 26th - Status + comments/thoughts: The lineart is finally finished and scanned. "All" there's left to do now is the main work with shades and textures, which I admit is going to take a little while. There's lots of small fiddly stuff (as usual it seems) to be careful with, but it's going to be fun all the same. The advantage of vacation is that you have the energy to work with a piece several days in a row and not just the occasional weekend. Still, there's no disadvantage to be a little patient while we wait for the result.  

:bulletpurple: Summer plans: trip to local zoo - a day of practice on sketching. 

:bulletpurple: Pencil piece - a dictionary page
Status: Not started on main work yet, all the sketches are done
Comments/thoughts: Biologist R.E. Bluecheese presents more fauna in his "famous" encyclopedia. Given the things already on the list this piece is for later on. Perhaps after summer.

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Sweden
I'm a vertically challenged oddball from the (seasonally) frozen North who likes to draw... you know... stuff...

I live in an average sized municipal, I work in an art gallery, I live alone.
I enjoy liquorice, long walks and hot tea.
I only have non-flowering plants at home because the other type tend to die in my care.

Apart from art I like a lot of other things like: history, biology, evolution, astronomy, archaeology, paleontology, psychology, music, walking, running (currently on hold due to injuries) and more. Ok, I may not be very good in either dicipline but I'm curious.

Contact? Questions? Send me a Note or drop me a mail at lindgrenlouise@hotmail.com

Det är rätt tid för festa igen! Eller hur? Party

After that dumbfounding use of Swedish I'll return to English so that neither of us won't have to see me "butchering" svensk grammatik more. ;)

One year gone again. How the time flies, eh. Hopefully you have had a good day. It has snowed here but what is Finnish May day without a little snow? :XD:

Bara om man gillar fester. ;P

Nah, I'd say: stick to your english. (And I'll stay away from my non-existant finnish.)

One year gone again, indeed. And it's getting harder for each year to remember exatcly how many years there are. Was it 35? No! 33? No! 34, wasn't it? :nuu:

Yes, the day has been good so far. Nice and calm - had a coffee/tea with mum and a quick stroll on the town, with still plenty of hours over for some drawing.

Ha! Snow! We've already had a "good" period of snowing and freezing in April (so typical). I hope your sudden snowfall was the last for the season.

Grattis på födelsedagen och glad Valborg!

Well, the latter is coming only tomorrow but who's counting? :XD: At least I have already served myself with doughnuts, funnel cakes, mead and later some beers and cider too. (Only few of those last ones though. They won't find me crawling the ditch bottoms).

Hopefully you have had some good treats today too? Was cake a lie? I hope not.
