...Eh...drumwhore, I hope you can forgive me, but I'm so freaking impressed with your style that I actually tried experimenting with it a little....obviously it doesn't come close to your level of brilliance, but I hope you understand this picture as a compliment....I'm in awe with your sense of color and simplicity. :buttrock:

It also take me a lot longer to get there, but it's been a lot of playing around....around 4h in Photoshop.

Thought a lot about this. I don't like dogs that much, but I always liked the idea of the Planet Mars being acompanied by his two War-Dogs Phobos and Daimos. Allways wanted to draw them, so I finally did!
Open Canvas 1.1, about 1h.

Not a lot of comments on this thread (taking the weekend off) but there were some good ones! Think I got everyone.

HenningK- love the style and I love the crazed look on the Chiuaua (I know it's spelled wrong).

Rasdasa- Love the dog park, that dog in the center kind of looks like Werewolf in London, just skinnier.

mdme_sadie- great perspective, a familiar one too.

taron333-simply sweet!

Phade- is that mega-man's dog?

DrakeX- I like how happy the dog looks.

acorn- I'm glad someone did the dog's look like there owners or vice versa.

3db2- that's messed up. but great!

divideby0- confused?

buzz3d- love the little guys proportions, and he's got little man syndrome, get a big dog to make for his small stature. Unfortunately, big dog next to him makes him look smaller! Great pic!

romero- I like the atmosphere

cyanid- very cinematic.

J-grieve- hilarious!

drumwhore dilemma.... :sad:

....crap, man....hmmm....dammit....should I take it off?! It's no problem, I can tank it, I'm feeling horrible now, but it's just been...ehh...am I an idiot here?! Not sure altogether, but please, just let me know and I see that I turn things around again. :argh:

Rasada, I think you're right and I think I'm being very ignorant here, but it's really such a style after my own heart, I had to at least give it one spin. But I probably shouldn't have shared it....I'm currently exploring all of the digital painting and feel like experimenting as much and as widely varied as possible. I love it and I'm extatic of being able to share it and consume some feedback, although it is not all that easy to get it....it sometimes feels like posting things here is more of a show off, because I may poke into the club at a little higher level and the ones above my work are not interested in commenting or so...but I feel like I am nothing yet, I'm serious, I know what I can or could do, but I know I've just started 2.5 weeks ago to actually approach any "serious" digital 2d pictures!

Anyway, I havn't ment to provoque anything bad! And again, I'm literally honestly and whole-hearted a FAN of Drumwhore's work and style. So, Sir, shout if you feel funky about the picture and it's gone! :banghead: :lightbulb

Taron333, I would guess (for the little knowing of Drumwhore by MSN) that he doesn't mind at all you trying his style out. I would do the same if I had the skills to do it. :)

Taron333.. I think you shouldn't worry that much. Isn't daily sketch started to learn from eachother? Maybe it's wrong to have the intension to copy drumwhore's style, but I don't think that's what you had in mind? I really like Drumwhore's style as well, and I tried it too. Just like you I'm just starting to try digital art seriously. I think it's just part of the learning process, copy things from someone you 'look up to'. That's what everyone did when he was a child, copying behaviour of your parents. I think it's a normal way of developing your own style. And to be honest, I like how you've drawn that guy (especially his hands).
I don't know anything about Drumwhore, but I think I would feel proud if someone is so font of my style that he's trying to recreate it or uses it for his own learning process.
As long as you use it for your own development it's no problem imo. But ask Drumwhore to be sure.
Great entries btw!!!

csmallfield : Phade- is that mega-man's dog?
heh didn't think of it like that but sure, it could be one of his secret puppies :)


Taron333: You say you're inspired by Drumwhore's works, which certainly isn't a bad thing, but why it's leading into a "drumwhore dilemma.... " for you puzzles me. When I saw your "dog" pic, all that popped into my mind was "niiiice" - not "whoa a rip off of xxxXxx" - now unless there's some direct connection with (or copying of ) a certain image which Drumwhore created, I just see another style emerging from that paint bucket that is an artist's mind :D

I wouldnt worry too much about copying a style. After all, even Drumwhore got his style from somewhere. All architects, artists, actors, even polititians take in tidbits from their peers and predicessors and make it into their own. its just part of the process

Taron333: don't worry! at no moment i thought anything bad about your experiment :D On the contrary, i'm really flattered! And you did a great job with this pic for sure :) i'm happy that i was able to inspire you, I appreciate a lot! And there's nothing wrong with it, i mean I also have been influenced by other artists, which were also influenced by others themselves etc.. As we all do i guess. As long as there's no rip off, which is obviously not the case here :) so relax and don't remove the pic, i love it!! and thanks a lot for all the kind words, it's really encouraging :beer:

Anyway, here's my pic.. 2h-2h30 (really don't know), photoshop.

Thank You! I was really hoping you would react that way, because it's simply how I wanted this to be understood. You are presenting a vibrance in your choices of colors and shading like no other here and it is awe-inspiring! But I guess I don't have to go on drowning you in compliments. This is exactly what makes me enjoy so extremely very much that Goro dragged me into this forum! All of you are big inspirations, triggering artistic desires I had nearly forgotten or even discover right now! It literally fills a void I could never really make out clearly enough. All of this does far more than just reviving my own artistic desires, but further more inspires actually the creation of features for the 3D software I've joined to develope. Eh, I'm talking about Messiah:studio, but I figure some may have heard about it already...anyway. With every technique and approach I become aware of in 2D I discover needs or simply conveniences that would make the 3D scene generation far more pleasurable and intuitive! Alone the artistic approach to incorporate haze by naturally placing it where ever it appears appropriate could change the whole world of scene design.
The color vibrance of your images is again a brilliant consideration for creating shaders. If you would have a different pseudo I could even call a whole shader principle after your name...hehehe...but damn, dude, drumwhore may be a good seller in some circles, but a studio would be rather frightened...hahahaha......

So anyway, I'm glad beyond believe that you understand me correctly. I was worried and one post up there really brought the worries home to me....but now, I'm happy! Thanx!

You're da man! :D

Don't worry yourself Taron, at this point you are just paying him homage, you yourself state you aren't trying to rip him off. It's just that, to me, it's always shitty to have someone say that they've confused my style for someone else’s if thgat someone else has so successfully emulated it. We all work long and hard to find our own identity in art as much as anything, no one wishes to be ubiquitous, especially since to some, our art is an expression of who we are, it identifies us. Just like Cyanid first stated, he though it was Drumwhore when he first saw your piece. Still though, don't remove it, it's ecellent, and like you said, only an experiment.

Thanks Taron! :) Hehehe, no worry i understand! btw i'm glad you like my colors, and thanks for the proposition, i'm feeling honored.. :D although you're right, 'drumwhore' isnt really marketable.. :)

cheers! :beer:
