the blue glow isn't universal with all backgrounds....

It's there for the presentation factor, it isn't going to be in the final.



All art is good to people who lack the eye for it.


I made $5k-6k last year with promotion solely from facebook. How much did you make from your art in your lifetime?

Also won $1500 in prize from a contest last November.... (which was voted on against 20 pieces by the public)



And for those bashing DA, I don't care. look at my last 4-5 peaces and look at there submission date.

I don't use it often anymore, or take it seriously.

Making money from art doesn't mean much.



People pay millions for Damien Hirst's drivel, he's the smart one for making them believe it's art.



Van Gogh and lots of other artists' paintings were worth hardly anything when they were alive trying to sell them, and they certainly aren't bad artists. Really, selling art just means whoever paid for it is stupid enough to buy it, or they realise it's good and want to pay for it. Either way, you've made a profit and they've bought something.



Art is judged by others, and don't you dare say that people in the Gallery can't tell you your work sucks because they haven't made any money from theirs, or you deem them too amateurish.

Your right, art is subjective....



But this is business, and it doesn't work that way

And apparently few here know the business behind art.

You all need to cool off a bit. Does it not occur to you that you have your own little "hug box" in launching a full-scale attack on LP? Nothing appeals to human nature like uniting against a lone outsider.

Well, frankly, it looks staged, never the less. In fact, without it the lineart would look horribly choppy...

Unlike you, art to me isn't about the money. I don't do assembly line, predrawn crap. You're being elitist waving around your figures in my face. Plus, you do anything flashy enough, and everybody will think it's the best they've ever seen. Just look at Hanna Montana!

So? You act like any other prima donna DevianTARD. I hate people like you would think they're so great because they can color in lineart and sell it for lots of money. Go do that, and be happy about it, but please don't call it art.

All art is good to people who lack the eye for it.








I take personal offence to this statement.



Should I start saying that all music (which is an art) is good to those that lack the ear for it? (People who just happen to like pretty much all genres?)



The fact is, there is no 'eye for art'. There is an eye for styles and seeing what people do inside art, but in no way, shape, or form does it mean that some people perceive all art as good simply because they don't have an advance artists knowledge.





Separately, and I mean pertaining to this little debate, LP simply posted something, and although he did not asked to be critiqued, there is a large difference between being critiqued and being put down. To tell someone 'your painting sucks simply because it looks like a 5 year old did it', or 'this is way too basic' are ways to put someone down, not say something constructive about a piece of art.



Think before you post: are you criticizing the artist, or the art?

Lmao, that's because it IS staged, that's what presentation is.

And if you knew about contrast you would know that dark on light would make any choppynes show up worse.

The black vector is on top of a much lighter colored glow.

Wow... I love what this gallery has come too... it used to be like a real art gallery nice, peaceful and relaxing... it did not matter how bad the picture was you would never truly get a flame war like I see all too much now. *Almost* every single topic all everyone does is just bashes the image, no matter what it is, and when one does it you have 10 more follow suit to just say the same thing. Nary a one gives the person specifics of what they don't like. All they tell them is that they don't like it...well that is obvious... Also I have noticed a decline in people editing other people's pictures to show them what they are talking about. Not only does this make their point clear, but it also brings to attention specific parts of the image. No matter what someone posts there is no reason in the world that there should be any flaming at all. If you are able to flame them then there must be something wrong that you know how to fix, which then you should provide aide to them in fixing it.



Isn't that the point of this being a community? To build each other up?







Anyways back on topic...



Personally I really like both of them. The first one though seems just a tad to sharp. I do like that both of them have the glittery feel of when you look at a butterfly. For the background I like the canvas/parchment look, it gives it a butterfly collection case look. The glow on the second one is a little to white for me though, maybe even go to a soft green. Maybe you could even do a more centralized glow like if it were a filter placed over a lamp.



Hope this helps some,

Chris

Holy [bleep] guys... in all honesty, friendship aside, LP knows more than the lot of you put together, so pretty much, just shut up. LP is one of the most skilled artists on this forum, he actually knows what he is doing and does more than a sig, sigs take NO talent compared to what he does. To make a sig, takes 15 mins of nothing. no skill in a sig, they are just fun to make. What LP makes is art, a signature how ever, i dont consider to be art, because anyone can do it.. How many of you can even compare to LP?





As for the art,



The first one as said, looks way to sharpened, and im not a fan of the colors, they do not blend (the brownish, grey, red, blue, and greenish)



The second one is much better i think but still seems a bit to sharp. the colors how ever, i love

All friendship aside? Hmm, I call [cabbage].



LP is a talented artist, yes. But he is also a major douche and is incredibly arrogant. I think that is what the arguments are stemming from.

Woah. Woah. We need to tone down the negative nellies.



It looks good, though could be a little more detailed. They are probably being paid for, so spending more effort his good. I like them though.

I would say many posters in The Gallery far surpass LP in artistic ability. The amount of profit he makes is irrelevant.



There are two types of graphic designers, as I see it. Those who are passionate about making art, and those who are passionate about making money. LP, you seem to fall in the latter category, along with those such as Hannah Montana and Soulja Boy.



For you to throw in a few tacky colours and sell these butterflies as "your own designs" (and then whine and b*tch when criticized) shows your complete disregard for what we artists value in a work.



Sorry if this seems harsh, but you've got to hear it. You're acting like a child and an elitist moron, LP. My respect for you as a old-time poster and as an artist has gone out the window.

wrong, i dont care about money, him makin money means nothing to me, but skill wise there is not many that browse this forum whom are better. Lots may be about the same, but not many are better as he is easily one of the best artists on this forum. For you to be able to consider artwork yours, it has to have 50% or more of the image yours. he started off with a base layer and did it from there on, he can easily say its his. besides, theres a new law out, copy right images means [cabbage] now. though i think thats bull, you can still take an image with the copy right symbol, and claim it to be yours.

I'm sorry Yaff, but I honestly can't think of how you read my post in a way that would give you that answer. It's ... mind boggling. I'm saying you have a bias opinion on LP because you're friends whether you say so or not.

For you to be able to consider artwork yours, it has to have 50% or more of the image yours.


The "50% rule" only exists on TIF. :lol: For the record, not nearly 50% of that work is original.



In the real world, adaptations of a work must abide by copyright laws. LP fails to do so in two ways, and thus he is infringing on the copyright.

Attribution. You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).



Noncommercial. You may not use this work for commercial purposes




Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 License.



And I would seriously question the validity of your other statement. While LP is a fine artist, I haven't seen too many works by him that are any more impressive than even the 'render tags' we see so often here.
