Quantity over quality that time, yet technique regression seems imperceptible enough. I hope.
Well, first of all and most important – I got positively zero education for every hobby of mine, including relatively recent drawing activity. What’s even more, my schooltime artistic endeavours was always evaluated beyond hopeless by everyone around. After graduating and being forced to freelance by overall circumstances (seriously, who in sane mind need sociopathic manager ?), it was some time as well before I accidentally stumbled upon Wartegg’s test and tried to impress wannabe-psychologist (there aren’t much demand for doctors with maniacal tendencies as well) friend of mine. Eventually, results turned about thrice rater than expected, and day later my craftswoman pseudo-career started with highly stylized autoportrait (#VG_OWNERDRAW, per see). My techniques rapidly progressed since then until december of former year, where I basically lost own room and, as for now, it looks more like waltzing around erstwhile strides...
...As for art of other people, I prefer surrealism (Magritte, Yerka, Gric) since –teen age, yet lately got quite interested in macabre (including Luke Chueh) and stylized symbolism (including Lora Zombie). Well, that and Brian Viveros' pin-up.
Is there anything I can do to help?
René François Ghislain Magritte, I have often wondered what his mind was like. I do love the painting he did where the guy’s nose is coming from his pipe.
Jacek Yerka has been a huge influence on my own work> the concrete airplane with the city growing on it is one of my all time favorites. I do a lot of dream world stuff
Peter Gric is another wonderful artist
I do not go the macabre route myself but I know who Luke Chuehis and am moved by his teddy bears.
Lora Zombie was a new for me. Thank you for bring her to my attention.
Brian Viveros is also a new one to me.
I grew on Jamie Hewlett and Alan Martin and tank girl. And have also deeply influence by people like the Czechoslovakian puppet animators; Wolfgang and Christoph Lauenstein; Ian Norbury; Paul Gauguin, Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse, Jacques-Louis David; Vicente Segrelles; Jean-Claude Forest; Aubrey Beardsley; Maxfield Parrish; Jean "Moebius" Giraud; and Vincente Segrelle and his “Mercenary”.
Is there anything I can do to help you?
Hm, all those illustrators and animators together… That being said, I suppose you may as well be interested in Yasushi Nirasawa and Jeff Soto. Ah, also Craww. Craww is truly imminent in such a dispositions.
…Now, about help. At given point, I suppose, you as well as mostly everyone here can more\or\less unconstrainedly assist my progress by giving detailed reviews of my art pieces. While such a thing seems must for tracking progress of raising artists, I’ve only managed to obtain one so far as ~year ago.
