by the way let’s be clear here i don’t find myself completely worthless as an artist and i have a lot of pride in my abilities and progress and conceptual development!! like i made some really well-thought out pieces recently!! BUT i think (i know?) i do lag behind technically at times which is a bummer because technical ability is often what’s most impressive or attention-grabbing (at least at the high school level) and here i am drawin dumb cartoons that you just gotta believe are part of this larger conceptual idea maaan
Untitled, oil paint, 39” x 20”
(this painting is my pride and joy, be nice)
I want you all to understand that this lady just finished her senior year of high school.
(You might want to experiment with getting shadows not just by going darker, but by going cooler. Going to the purple was a really excellent choice, but if there had been some subtle touches of greenish things, or bluish - not even real greens or blues, just reds that were heading in that direction - it would have added a whole new dimension.
But these are things to think about - you have more than enough time to feel through cool/warm relationships.)
/pimpin my little sister’s art because she apparently hogged the talent in the family
hey it was done in her junior year of high school too!!
this is my friend lauren’s art and i don’t even think this is her best piece and all of you should reblog and give her ego boost notes or better yet go to her artblog and look at her better pieces (✿◠‿◠)
i just really love mechanisms
I’m sure this will come in useful at some point in my life
also it’s hypnotising
The nine circles of hell from Dante’s Inferno recreated in Lego by Mihai Mihu
I. LIMBO: A place of monotony, here the souls are punished to wander in restless existence while they moan helplessly in echoes between the ruins of a temple.
II. LUST: Surrounded by erotic representations, those overcome by lust are forced to watch and experience disgusting things, ultimately being condemned to drown in the menstrual river.
III. GLUTTONY: The circle itself is a living abomination, a hellish digestive system revealing horrific faces with mouths ready to devour the gluttons over and over for eternity.
IV. GREED: This pompous place is reserved for the punishment of the greedy ones.
V. ANGER: In this depressing place the souls are trapped in the swamp, they can’t move and they cannot manifest their frustration which is making them even more angry.
VI. HERESY: The giant demon watches closely over his fire pit, dwarfing the damned that are dragging the new arrivals in the boiling lava. Those who committed the greatest sins against God are getting a special treatment inside the temple where they are doomed to burn for eternity in the scorching flames.
VII. VIOLENCE: A place of intense torture where the horrific screams of the damned are eternally accompanied by the hellish beats of drums.
VIII. FRAUD: In Fraud the Demons enjoy altering the shape of souls, this is how they feed.
IX. TREACHERY: Lucifer lies here chained by the Angelic Seal which keeps him captive in the frozen environment.
