This may take some time to load.

What I did the last 4 days.

I know this is not much art, just drawing from other folks, but it was fun. Which is what I needed.

Come on, shoot me. Tell me what you think.


Peace on earth,
Gollator

Gauguin: Contes Barbares

Areas to work at: certainly the face of the figure in the middle, but you cannot undo ballpen :(

Klimmt: Danae

Areas to work at: The blanket... otherwise, i like.

The blue disturbs me.

Schwabe: Death and Gravedigger

I got quite upset when I read the critique of this piece. Something about "ridiculous" and "mimic too rude". So I "ruded" the hands and the mimic even more. F*** you, Mr. Mackintosh.

Areas to work at: Certainly more light in the middle.

Rossetti: Ecce Ancilla Domini

Areas to work at: I darkened the face of the guy in front to move the focus, but it got way TOO dark.

can I write a check for my dime? :D

excellent studies, thanks for posting.

I'm partial to the picasso. I find doing studies of other painters to be extremely rewarding ... it's no surprise we're drawn to do it, I think- after all, you paint what inspires you.

Jerry:

no hollow words.

J*:
Better still, give the dime to the next poor soul you meet.

thanks for posting? thanks for taking the time to answer.
I had some barriers to paint paintings I like, and I haven't done it in oil, yet. Feels... dunno, like stealing. But this is rubbish, of course. Workin' on myself :)

great drawings gollator. thanks for posting them. i would love to see more people posting studies and preliminaries here.
these are especially powerful, owing both to the medium and the execution. love the picasso.

I always like seeing your ball sketches. I like that you've used a few different inks here, the blue on the one overpowering (yes?), the Klimt nice mixing. I like the dark face in Ecce, that is my favorite sketch. The picasso is good too. thanks for sharing these.

Since I bought this scanner yesterday, I now have the perfect recources to go on your nerves with even more studies. :)

Most people are usually astonished when I say "This is ballpen". They cost me about 25 cent per piece, and the ones in the gas station are best...must have around 40-50 flowing around my room now.
But there is a great potential in these pens.

ej: Y do you all thank me for posting? If not for your comments, I would surely not do so :)

Zotma: What do you mean by "Overpowering"? The dark face in "Ecce" is still bothering me, but interesting you like it.

Thanks all for looking,
Gollator
