WTF is Lord Graywolf anyway? I've been reading the thread but I still don't know anything.... Ok, so there's a confused guy selling other peoples art, but what kind of theme is that to draw?

I usually love the themes, but I think this one sux... I'm sorry...

08 August 2004, 04:40 PM

he is not confused, he was selling other artists' work i believe

Lord Greywolf, in truth a Level 18 Cleric, was exiled from the kingdom of Flim Flam. As he plots his revenge upon those who wronged him, he makes his way in the world however he can. A talented dragonslayer, he can't find much work as dragons are not the danger they once were. He now earns his silver by cheating in karaoke contests, designing bad web sites and selling "rediscovered" art (as seen above) that wasn't really missing in the first place. Thirsting for vengeance, he lurks in alleyways and murders the English language whenever the opportunity presents itself.

About 2hrs ps/wacom

Well, I read the thread and it was quite funny...
But the topic inspired me more to draw, so I decided to paint something that has nothing to do with that thread.
Here is my first serious attempt to draw a character digitally. And I have to learn much about anatomy and poses :(
I call him 'Lord Greywolf' (how surprising) :)

2:30 hours PSP7 Wacom

Definitely a nice first attempt Cyanid. Your hearts in it :p

Seriously though, it can be quite tricky at first getting the hang of digital, especially if you are working with a mouse, but are so deseprately used to pencils/pens...rawww!!!:cry: :banghead:

My 5 cent on Lord Greywolf: (had no time to wite it on my post)
Someone should send Mr Sawyer a pencil, some brushes and a Maya PLE, so he can sit on his ass and see how fakking hard it is to get some good artwork done!
He gives them names like "Snobbish Artists" but doesn't realize that this click to save and upload images on his page is nothing compared to the hours, days and years artists spend on learning and training their skills to be able to create their beautiful works.
If someone can create something great you should at least ask before you "redistribute" this stuff, or even without permission try to make money of others skills and works.
To my mind, and this really is my personal opinion - neither I want to offend him, nor I am a psychologist - Mr Sawyer is a dude who didn't succeed in life and because he doesn't have anything valuable (I distrust guys who think life is a RPG and they are its heros) he does whats one of mankinds first instincts, COLLECT. And because he is so freakin thankless and still belives in the dream of easy becoming rich, he tries to get money for the effort of others (isn't proving that?).
But the worst thing is he doesn't see the value of each picture....sure they are pretty (I doubt Mr Sawyer really appreciates the art according to his webdesign). But did YOU, Mr Sawyer, ever think of the people who went to school or trained their skills for years to be able to create this piece of pretty pixel composition? Or did you ever think that these guys and girls may live of selling or promoting with their pictures for jobs and that you as a nobody who just can put these works on YOUR missarable page gain popularity or even money for the efford of these people!
Yeah It's all digital and so easy to copy. That's what every digital piece is. But in my mind copying and redistributing works even pictures is a kind of warez. If you like a work link the artists page and, give him credit. But don't live the illusion of being an artist on your own just by collecting great artists stuff.
I like collecting pieces I like. But who the hack am I to show these on my page, without credit or permission and even try to make money out of it?
You are a lame ass bitch, and sorry for my language (actually thats the fist time I use it on the forum), get a job dude! DON'T LIVE ILLUSIONS!

On the point of not knowing how much work goes into this type of art, I think that applies to the general public. It's amazing how much you learn just by listening to experts. The people in my art class (although we do not do digital work) think lots of randomly placed lens flares in a piece are very cool and professional. They also think the work involved in changing a color photo to grayscale is equal to the work involved in making an photo realistic animation. :cry:

radasa: I like your drawing style!

milho: cute anim ;)

08 August 2004, 03:24 AM
Appreciated click click ;P

I also agree with both of you, true originality will forever be raped by insencirity.


08 August 2004, 02:59 PM
