    I am calling this thread "Amateur Artists Board", even though I don't fall in that category. I however do, like many others I guess, like to play around with Bryce and other novice programs. I'll start this off with a rather simple picture I did using Bryce 5.5 in an afternoon the other day. I expect some good stuff to come out here (I am sure dejawolf will post some good ones :wink: ). I would prefer though that you only post your own creations here. Here is my first one (snide comments will be tolerated):

    Nice work looks pretty good. Never used any programs like that, how long did it take? I have made a few pictures in photoshop though, and I'll post them when my computer is fixed.

    That picture’s kinda cool and surreal! :-D

    I’m no artist myself, so I’ll just sit back and admire all the lovely pictures that everyone else will be posting here.

    Bryce is a pretty user friendly program. You select shapes, size and place them and then you choose a texture. You can then fine-tune the textures and play with lighting and camera placement. All this took all in all about 4 hours to complete, rendering time was about 45 minutes. All pretty basic. I await your much more complicated Photoshop stuff (which actually require some talent)!

    Is this thread only for digital art? Some of us fossils still use brushes and oil paints. This one is West Bay cliffs in Dorset, one early morning when the sun was making wonderful shadows on the differently eroded softer and harder rock. The cliffs are formed from a ancient river delta.

    I call this painting Cliff and the Shadows...

    No, not at all. Now yours require real talent! Good stuff. :wink:

    I've always admired anyone who can paint or do art like what's been posted here. I would never be able to do that. I couldn't pay that much attention to detail, and could never be that patient. I stick to photography and music for my own personal artistic expression. Great job, everyone.

    I like Vincent Van Gogh.... perhaps because I, like him, deal with mental problems.

    But here is one of mine... = )

    Pastel











    And to accompany this a work of ink....

    I also like Vincent. Your painting has more than a touch of Edvard Munch, perhaps via Roswell.

    = ) Thank you


    Most of my paintings. like Munch's, are in fact set in mental tones. They are meant to express mood and reflect my world of mental distress.

    I don't know any of the names mentioned (well, except for Vincent), but I can really appreciate your stuff, schizo. I can at least tell a simple drawing apart from art (I hope) and yours to me definitely fall in the latter category. Really expressive stuff and (if I may be so bold) at least one good thing that has come from your mental problems. Good stuff! I'd like to see some more if you have them.

    I really appreciate your comment KALSTER; at the position I am at in life it is always nice to hear some encouraging and complimenting remarks. I think you summed it up perfectly with the word expressive, that is my goal. = ) You have asked to see more and I will gratefully do so.

    This is some more ink work...



    and




    Here are some more pastels....



    and






    Thank you again...

    I really like those too, both the pastels and the inks. In fact, it is the type of stuff I'd hang on my wall. Interesting to ponder on and aesthetically pleasing. Well done. :wink:

    Hey Schizo Kid

    I like your artwork too! Very Munch and Escher (ish!) Two of my fave artists

    I have just come back from visiting friends in Liverpool and visited the Tate where they have a Klimt exhibition on, v good, but some of the modern art they also have on exhibition was utter crap!

    I have just added you as a friend on MySpace

    Great work! Now this board is coming alive. I wish I had such talent as you guys and Bunbury. I was the best artist in the 7th grade, but alas by drawings still look as they did back then! I'll stick with the easy digital stuff.

    Cool stuff, guys!

    That reminds me that I have a Deviant Art gallery I haven't been to in ages. I used to be quite into film photography with a 35mm SLR -it ended up getting trashed accidentally by my then 3-year old and I haven't kept up the hobby.

    Anyway, here's my gallery: http://cfeagans.deviantart.com/gallery/

    One of my favorite photos:

    Load it onto a hosting site and provide the link. Something like www.4shared.com (it's free). You can load you photo onto that account and provide the link. Then I'll post the picture for you.

    Gyd, I don't know if you are still around somewhat, but really, don't mind Darius. I went to your link and you certainly have the gift! BTW, you can't know how to do something by instinct, you have to figure it out or have someone tell you. That is how it works for everybody! Don't put yourself down man, you don't deserve it!

    Oh hey.. an art thread!

    A white charcoal drawing I did a while back of an Australian native. The original picture was taken from a National Geographic magazine.

    Finger your charcoal is very well done! Lots of character and detail in that face.

    Artemis your short film is not bad at all either! I like the non-hollywood atmosphere of it. It is even much beter when you consider that it was your first project!

    Quality like this makes me jealous...

    Latest painting. A poor photo, I know. Probably because it was taken at 3:00am on a tesco value webcam.

    I have a picture I'm rather proud of (sadly, only 1) and I'll try to get it uploaded here.


    Edit: Please don't judge too harshly, the picture of the picture was taken with my phone, so it doesn't really give it justice.

    I've seen a few comics that work like that, revealing the panels and text bubbles in a timed sequence. Personally, I don't care for that style, but some people do. But I would recommend using flash instead, since it has in-browser support. Its not as easy to use as power point, but it can get you far better results. Though, if you have your heart set on power point, Open Office is a freeware version of Microsoft Office that is, in many ways, just as good if not better.

    Here's a few things I have made:











    As you can see they became progressively worse. That's because I placed them in order from newest to oldest. There's more in my gallery if you care to see it.

    Parasky, I like your last one the best. Pretty cool. Also, very impressive the rest of you guys, especially Finger (your a pro, cheater! :wink: )! Parasky, have you considered converting your pictures to JPEG format for posting on the internet?

    Whoa dude, just that they would take less time to load for people with poor internet connections, although on second thought it is probably more the size that makes the file size big. This is just a suggestion. Don't take offence.

    As an example, here is your spacequake one down to 358KB instead of 6.8MB:



    Again, don't take offence. :wink:

    I was just asking what you meant. I didn't intend it to appear as if I was offended.

    Here's a couple that I've done.

    The first one I call "Work in Progress":



    The second is a take on M.C. Escher's "Relativity".




    I kept the basic placements but changed the style. I also replaced some of the figures and items.

    Included are:

    A 3-D chess set from Star Trek.
    Robbie the Robot (Forbidden Planet)
    K-9 (Dr. Who)
    The tin woodsman
    Bender
    Robert the Robot (Fireball XL-5)
    Gizmo Gadget's "Little helper"
    The Space Needle

    Unfortunately, not at the moment. The full size versions take up a lot more server space, and I'd have to clear out some room for them as it is pretty clogged up with other stuff.

    Is that language Serbo-Croat?

    Depends who you ask =) Yes, it used to be Serbo-Croatian, but officially today Serbian and Croatian are separated languages =) By the way, I am from Montenegro, so I am most likely to say it's Montenegrin language, but in the substance, it is all the same language, with very small varieties. If you speak Serbian, you also speak Montenegrin, Croatian, Bosnian, even a little bit of Macedonian =)) Hope I didn't confuse you =)

    i guess i'm gonna stop posting on here, lol... i'm recording more songs regularly, pretty soon i'm going to run out of originals and will start to learn some covers to fill in space on my channel and attract viewers... if anyone can suggest some popular folk, punk, alternative artists and songs, that would be great!

    popular, not pop
