Arrow Evocative Figure / Landscape - ANY MEDIUM

Guys/Gals,

This thread is dedicated to the study of EVOCATIVE FIGURE & LANDSCAPE in 2D / 3D TRADITIONAL AND DIGITAL MEDIA.

Please post your best EVOCATIVE FIGURE & LANDSCAPE pieces here!

What is an evocative figure or landscape or figure in landscape? It's up to you to interpret. What I would like to see here are drawings / paintings / 3D work / sculpture which goes beyond the merely representational, and tries to express something emotional ~ what's beyond the seen.

Please post:

1. Your BEST WORK!
2. Medium used
3. Time spent to complete
4. A bit about your process

Thanks in advance for your posts!

~Rebeccak

Here is my first major work posted on cgtalk.....gulp!!

I would say give me your crits. but this peice is done and I am not going back to it ever again, so you might be wasting your time.

medium: house paint on canvas (5 colors= white, black, a red, a blue and a yellow)
size: 16' high x 36' wide


and here is myself, so you can get a sense of scale. I stand 6'2".

Shaun / Stipick,

Aw, shucks!

Do you do many murals like these for commission? Any more pics you can share? This is super cool! I have a good friend who does street painting (not the same thing except for size) and her work is fantastic! It's really cool to see work as large as this ~ I don't know if I could do that, so it's always impressed me to see folks who could.

Looking forward to more major posts!

~Rebeccak

nope...
I wish I could make a living painting large. There is a great city mural program here in philadelphia, I just have not been able to break in.
this actually wasn't a mural, just a painting. No money was made from this bad boy, hence the house paint... it was cheap. Although I will admit that I did not pay for the supplies.

I liked this piece when it was done, but now that i search through the archives and I am a bit older I can see major problems, especially in the area of lighting. Areas that should be are not and vice versa. There are some other things too, but it was fun and worth the invested time.

Funny thing is this was the last major piece I did before I gave up and put down the pencils and paint brushes for a couple of years. I had allways wanted to be a figure painter/illustrator and never recieved any formal painting or anatomy classes (despite my requests), yet I went to an art school. This painting was the beast that brought me down...mainly becuase I couldn't get it good enough.

ohh and you can call me shaun....

Shaun,

Lol, I get so used to calling people by their user names that it's hard for me to use their real names, how funny is that? I can't even bear to just write "Rebecca" but have to sign "Rebeccak" or I just feel downright odd ~ go figure!!!

Anyhoo, it is great to see your work and I hope that we will see more. It's tough to hide a mural measured in feet, lol!

~Rebeccak...can't help it!
