Arctis,

Oh, way, way cool!!! I love this piece...how the surface texture is like that of an egg, that is just really sweet...a comic??! What is the comic about?

Awesome website, too!

And here is a SUPER old piece which I'm embarrassed to show, but figure if I don't now, I ne'er will, so here goes:





1. Originally an oil painting on wood which got Photo'shopped.
2. Originally a watercolor which got Photo'shopped.

I am curious rebecak. Despite your strong figurative/realist background, the school you went to and who you studied under, you really seem to go in a much different direction than one would think. What motivates this approach? I have browsed your website a couple of times and you display mainly as you call it "evocative" art. I am curious as to what or who do you owe this unique approach to?

shaun

p.s. I hope this did not come off as being rude or mean. I am trully interested and could not put it anyother way. In a nut shell, read this with a happy tone!!

Shaun,

Lol, it's true I'm a funny horse...in truth, I never set out to become an Illustrator, and frankly never had that as a goal when I was an Illustration major at ACCD...I basically always wanted to be a "fine artist" *gasp* and had to go to a commercial art school because it was the only bastion of traditional skills which I could find...suffice it to say that while I love Illustration and Illustrators (I have a profound respect for those who can do it well), I do not consider myself an Illustrator as such...I'm kind of in a hybrid state because I'm neither a full-fledged "fine artist" nor a full-fledged "Illustrator", so I basically just do what the heck I want and call it a day.

Also, after school, I really didn't feel that I could draw very well, and so I kind of attacked doing Master copies with a vengeance...having not gone to an atelier type of school where you copy from busts and such, all I had to go on during my art school days were model sessions and books...so I felt that I had lacked that super~solid basis of learning in the way the Old Masters had...it's not easy (or cheap) to get that kind of training these days...

Didn't take offense to what you said at all ~ what I would really like to consider myself as is a "draughtsman". My main passion is drawing, and while I would like to be a full~on practicing traditional artist painting figurative work in oils, it's just not in the cards right now...plus, I really would like to study more 3D stuff eventually should time and opportunity permit, so at times I feel a bit schizophrenic, as I'm sure most visual people do these days, lol!

Thanks for asking.

~Rebeccak

#1 Mrs Spirit Dreamer and myself watching one of the beautiful sunsets across from our house while sitting on steps along sea wall that lead down to the beach that overlooks Boston harbor. Done in Painter about two hours.

#2 Title: Oil Spill and the Weeping Tree of Life. Just my personal thought of how all the cars and people driving them and the oil industry are screwing up the planet and all the life on it.
Pen and ink drawing modified with Painter. Time 6 hours.

Great idea for a tutorial Rebecca

Take care
Glenn

Rebeccak -> wahouw for the Green Hiway...I like this one... it permit to imagine a lot of thing... and it's very peaceful...
...and very beautiful digital collage pieces of family memories, in particular the second one.


stipick_S -> impressive work... that points out to me the time when I painted frescos on wood, with house too hahahaha.
But never also large, cheer Mister.


Pushav -> hahaha... I hope that you will finish it soon...


Jan-Mark -> for me it's an aurora borealis, hardly disturbed by an electromagnetic perturbation.
A point of poetry interfered technicality, as the world that we have in our minds, and which one would like real.


Gunilla -> Thanks to point me to this other good thread (of Rebeccak...)... As you know... I love this animation... and for sure, this view... interior of the human body, but that perhaps many other things, but the most important, it's that makes good in our eyes, therefore at our heads.
Then, maybe a galactic road with thousands of aliens which go on holidays.


Arctis -> I've just put my eyes on your website this morning... much impressive things...
"PAGEchant2b.jpg" (not an another name ?) is a really strong image... and very sensitive... I hope that it's not you who suffers like them. Fortunately, there's "oon" to take rest.


Segvoia -> Your art seem really great... I just want to see these 2 fabulous pictures in bigger size if it's possible... thanks and congratulations

Now my participation... I'm actually at work and I can't find a personal work for this thread... but the post of Gunilla make me think to certain professional realisations wich can participate here...

This picture is also extracted from an animation. A camera penetrates inside a human ear, to the cochlea.

At this precise moment, the camera crosses the tympanum, and we sees the ossicles and the cochlea...

...bu if you see another things, I will be curious to know really what

Lemog,

Very cool work! As I mentioned, I am a fan of medical illustration, both 2D and 3D, so it will be cool to see more work in this vein (haha, vein) ~ and definitely post your other work as well!

To me, this looks like some kind of aquatic creature...that's what I love about subjective work...you can just see whatever it is you wish.

Thanks for posting!

Hey Rebecca, sorry for the late reply, I've been a bit distracted.

I love colour when it's used well, like in the road you posted(seems to be a favourite, maybe it's still the bent realism in it). A ghost world of memories and whimsy flights into the night or something.

But it's very critical in paintings I find, so I'm sticking with values for a while, I'm pretty sure it's for he best.

Love these pieces btw.

And thanks Lemog, that's a nice view on it. A bit like the Styx yeah, a whirlpool of fantasies, just like the road by Rebecca I guess, also dreams and flights.( that one's a weee bit better though )
