I really like The Met. Every time I go there I'm surprised by how much I like it. I mean I expect to like it, but it's always so great.

I get more of a sense of purpose there. It's better think thoughts like "I want to paint like Rubens" than it is to think small thoughts like "I want to paint this skull."

Look at this Rubens painting with the wolf biting the spear. www.flickr.com/photos/mbell197… And here it is again www.metmuseum.org/works_of_art… Isn't it the great? I decided we need more wolves and dogs attacking things in art. It's a good alternative to dogs playing poker in art.

Here is a good illustration of dogs not playing poker. www.flickr.com/photos/freepark… This is another thing I saw in person lately.

I was just curious... has your perspective changed or expanded at all regarding the issue of plagiarism and legalities vis-a-vi commercial art and design? It's been a while since we last discussed this issue and I thought I'd inquire.

I congratulate you on your artistry. You can capture not only the outer appearance of the people you draw, but also the essence of their expression.:thumbsup:

One suggestion I do have is that you expand your horizons. You don't necessarily need to try a new style. It would be beneficial, if just as an exercise, if you drew more than portraits. Give these people an environment to inhabit and other peeps to interact with.:D

I draw more than portraits. I know it sounds like a cop-out when I say I draw stuff that I do not post, but that is the case. A lot of the experiments I have done in other genres simply aren't very good, so I don't post them. I started drawing some Pokemon fan art a few days ago though, maybe I'll post that when it's done. Anyway I am glad you think I have good portrait drawing skills, it didn't come easily to me.

I understand. There is plenty of artwork I've refrained from posting. Either it's, like you feel about the ones you don't post, badly done or I'm worried about copyright infringement. The art that falls in the latter category is actually pretty impressive. In fact that's another reason I'm reluctant to post it, even though it's my best in a purely technical sense, I'd rather my creative work receive the attention. I bet I'm starting to sound like a liar now.

No, there's no reason to think you're lying. That experience is pretty common to everyone, most people do their best work when they copy, at least when they first start.

Copyright infringement isn't worth worrying about. As long as you don't make any money off of the thing you copy, and you give the original artist credit, there won't be any problems.

Unfortunately DA has a culture that discourages copying and tracing. You saw how much I got slammed for having so much stuff from reference. This is unfortunate because it's totally irrational. DA's culture doesn't always jive with what works in the real world, to say the least.
