Artist needs your help for upcoming project
    #3707244 - 01/31/05 01:35 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hello all, its been quite a while since I've said hello to the community, so hello. I have checked the boards daily, but have been quite submersed in my work lately. Now I need your help my friends...

I am currently working on my senior show for art school. As many of you may know I'm a slave to my paintbrushes and its time again for me to immerse myself in my work. After much deliberation I've decided on a direction for my show.

skip to the bottom if you wish, the important bit is at the bottom.

Once again I will be focusing on portraiture in oils. Of course I will be using my hallmark vivid color schemes. I am trying to combat the traditional view of portraiture as a somewhat low art form. Historically portrait painters were nowhere near as popular as painters that took on great historical or religious works. I am trying to redefine the way portraiture is looked at in the art world.

This means several things. First I take away the model all together. I solely work from photographs, this way I separate myself from the subject all together. Next I use computer aid to manipulate lighting and color, giving myself a solid core to start from, as well as adding an element of mixed media (which will manifest itself more greatly with time).

Now I want to take it a step further and this is where your help comes in. I have been painting friends and people I've photographed over the years, but I've always had some first hand contact with them. This is what I want to change. I want to completely separate myself from the people I paint.

My current idea revolves around the ideas of people in forums like ours here at the Shroomery. We spend so much time talking to, usually, nameless faceless people. So my virtual friends I need your mug shots. I am looking for fairly high resolution shots of faces, I don't need bodies, but I can get rid of them myself if need be. The bigger the better, cause I can get much more detail in from hi res pics, but whatever you got will do. I need normal faces, crazy faces, sad, happy, and vulgar faces. Old, young, all faces. All information about you is unnecessary, except your screen name, as that will be the title of the works.

I will be posting paintings up as I complete them so you all will have a chance to see what your involved in. I am really looking forward to this project and I think it may even get me into the gallery world, which would be my dream come true.

Send lots of pics of yourself to
virtualstranger@comcast.net


If you have any questions or concerns about my project you may send me an email to this same address

If a mod would like to sticky this, it would be sweet, as this is an ongoing project. Thank you guys and i hope to see you all on my canvass soon. Oh yeah, TODCASIL I better get some from you, ya big ham

The link in my signature shows some examples of my works and should give you some idea of what the finished works will look like

if your not going to send pictures, please respond to this thread as to why your not sending pics. That way I can change my methods and try to get everyone on board. Thanks

Oh yeah and tell your friends, anyone on other boards, tell the world. Please blow my email box up with pictures. It will help sooooo much.

Take my pics from the "pics of pubbers" thread in the Pub if you want.

sweet, done and done :wink:
Thank you!

and now for something completly different. Has anyone noticed the influx of paranormal amphibians lately? They manifest themselves as regular human babys, but theyre not fooling me. I have seen their cold watery eyes, hidden beneath cushy baby flesh, cooing for their bottle. Oh, this is my train stop. Gotta go.

That is such a good site Delyrium. WOW! you are most beautiful. Thank you for the ilnk. You are an amazing photographer ma dear. Lost Somewhere in Wyoming is particularly apealing to me. The stark landscape contrasted against a somewhat amused face is key. The self portrait is great, sorry to hear of the events that were to follow. In any case I should be able to use that, but if you'd be so kind to send a couple more, I would be most apreciative. I am getting a large amount of males, which is great guys, keep em coming, but I would definately like to get more women envolved. I would be very pleased to paint your portrait miss Delyrium.

Thanks to everyone thats sent in pics, and dont forget, tell your friends, your parent, tell total strangers, the more the better. Off to painting :wink:
