Fine art (f-art) made by other people
« on: August 28, 2015, 01:27:57 AM »
I didn't see a thread for this, but I just found some realllyyyyy cool shit, so I figured we should have a thread for cool shit like this.
Credit for the f-art joke goes to Dice.

First, some art by orioto:

And art by Kevin Tong:
http://www.tragicsunshine.com/









I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

If they're just random people, I'd see these as things we'd put in the random amazing pictures thread.  But if they're forum-goers, then a separate thread feels totally appropriate.  I know some of you folks do some pretty cool stuff. :)

Orioto is really something, I definitely recommend his prints (and mine!).

I've definitely wanted to buy a few, but he's selling for the same reason I am.  We're all broke. D:

In response to this...eh, I kinda wouldn't mind seeing a VG art topic I guess.  There's definitely talent out there.  So maybe VGM art and merch (like the t-shirts at Fangamer or whatever)?

Makes really stylish videogame shirts.  I hate the stuff with logos or characters on it, and this is definitely "less abstract" than fangamer can get.  THere's one here Vivi fans will shit for I for.

I forgot to mention, I'm glad "f-art" caught on.  I say this as a f-artist.

Quite possible one of the best Nocturne fan arts I've ever seen...

Yo this piece of fine art freaked me /way/ the hell out when I was younger and really it STILL does. Am I alone here?

Mesh, I think you're usually ... er ... unique in your viewpoints.

Okay let me explain.

So I used to see prints of Raphael's churbs, or prints based on them at least, all the time. Super common on posters. I mean, at least  during the Bush years and a little after. Talking Bush Sr. btw. (also I like Sr. u wanna fite about it m8?)

Thing is, when I saw this, I'm not thinking, "Aww, cute angel babies!" or "Aww, soothing imagery of heaven!"

No, there are a few things going through my mind:

1. They look bored. Deeply and existentially bored. And that kind of set my entire concept of the afterlife during the period of time during which I subscribed to a more traditional view of Christianty. It's like the Talking Heads song -- heaven is a place where nothing ever happens. You float around in this nebulous cloud place doing /nothing/.

2. They're naked. So I got the impression that heaven had this forced nudity clause which I was /deeply/ uncomfortable with when I was five or so for various reasons.

3. Color scheme. It's like, sickly yellow, light from a bomb going off, cigarette-stained teeth, funereal sepia tone creepiness.

4. I didn't notice this when I was younger cause I think on posters they usually change the background out with something a lot sunnier/blue, but seriously they're in a hazy void that... looks like it's on fire? Like an a-bomb test?

It's seriously just a painting of spending eternity naked in a sickly-looking void with nothing to do.
