Fucking amazing artwork *pics*
    #4027456 - 04/07/05 06:58 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Post your favorite artists/paintings/visual pictures. Two of my favorite current painters are Joseph Mallord William, and Zdzislaw Beksinski.
The first is very good with lighting, a characteristic I like. The second guy, Zdzislaw, paints from what he sees in his dreams (he was also murdered recently :frown: )

Here are two galleries of Zdzislaw and one of William Turner.

Zdzislaw 1
Zdzislaw 2
Williams 1

Here are some of my favs (if the images are broken, just go to the galleries):













Here's some of the other artist.

This seems like a good time to pimp some of my art work

This on is an acrylic painting

This is a drawing in charcoal, oil pastels, and wax

this one is a photoshop collage

this one is a watercolor edited in photoshop

Is there a quick way to see all the posts youve replied in, in order to check if there were new replies? I see the 'my posts' link under my home, but it doesnt show if they have been replied to or not.

if you toggle your posts (bottom of the screen.. favorite) in your home they will appear in a list and if they have been replied to there will be a "new" icon by it.

Wow!!! Beksinski has some freaking talent.  His artwork is so creepy yet utterly satisfying in a weird primal but intelligent way.

Fucking awesome, thanks for sharing :smile:

you're second piece is really cool.  kinda looks like an oil spill.  is that a self-portrait?

yes it is a self-portrait... what I mainly dabble in actually... does that make me a narcisist?

No, it doesn't. It's just a way of getting to know yourself even better. Does that make sense? You're basically studying yourself, not admiring.

Oh, I was just joking, what else would I draw/paint when I know myself best. No need to hire a model when I have a mirror.

that's great that you posted some Beksinski stuff. he's actually probably my favorite artist. his style is so dark and amazing. I have everything he's done saved to my computer. I'm not crazy about his later more digital works but find them ok in their own right. his early paintings are the best, though. I used to use the first image posted as an avatar years ago.

I also really like this work of his (which I've posted in MAL before):





I was trying to find the deviantART site of this really amazing artist who only uses a pencil and creates some of the most realistic portraits I've ever seen. anyone have a link? I think he's German.

I like some of Brute's artwork.. He has some cool stuff, and some sorta cheesy stuff.

You may remember brute by his oh-so-popular album art for KMFDM.

Were you thinking of Howard David Johnson?

He draws photo realistic portraits with prismacolor pencils.
These drawings are amazing check it out.

Bekskinski's paintings all seem to have the theme of the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust, and the contuining evolution of human life after the nuclear event. Very beautiful and creepy stuff, some of it reminds me of H.R. Giger, like that ghoul playing the trumpet with all those excess fingers.
