Good morning Fellow Artists.
Happy Valentine's Day



Am sipping my morning coffee, and still trying to wake up. We got a day off from work, which is good, because I love long weekends.

It's a beautiful, sunny day in my neck of the woods. I think I will go for a walk and take some pictures today.

Happy Valentines to you RR as well as the rest of the crew!!!!

Not sure if you watch football, much less the Superbowl, but here is a must see commercial that fits with Valentines Day that was shown during, well more like after, the game

Hope it's okay if I post it here
It will give the night shift something to watch

Nothing like puppy love....LOL

Enjoy!!



Happy Valentine's Day ATS!!

Happy Valentine to everyone ! been a bit busy today so.. some thoughts

There has been a lot of discussion which makes something to pleasable for the eye. Have no valentine pics for you guys as i am crippled with the theme lol
Instead i offer you
rule of thirds as a transparent png, this is the most used composition model in art and photography

understanding rule of third

What the tutorial misses to say is a bull´s eye ( middle retancle ) it can be used as a statement a strong statement, like a posters with fist in the middle of the picture with no escape for the eye, i am sure you have seen those. Bull´s eye in other art than "statement art" can also be used but then the surrounding areas needs a balancing features like "repeating" patterns and shapes or colors around the picture, like in the tree painting in that video at 1:36 it has balancing yellow trees in the both sides.
Bull´s eye tend to annoy viewer when eyes gets stuck. Lines of the middle retancle are where our eyes tends to go naturally when we see the pic. Bull´s eye should be used carefully its more often miss than a hit.

All kind of art sculpure, architechture, paintings, photographs, nature itself and even music and poems have mathematical features and one of the most known is fibonacci sequence 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89.... and golden ratio 1.618

Fibonacci golden spiral as a transparent png

In Fibonacci in art the main features follow the spiral where the center of spiral is where the attention goes. It´s said this is how everything around us is buildt and it has a devine origins.

Plato´s rule for composition " have unity within variety and variety within unity " what he means of it not to spread items around far away from each other ( this causes bouncing eye ) instead keep them closer together but in a manner that picture or sculpture have for example items differences in scale etc.

Rules are not the rules you have to follow blindly but to break a rule with style needs first the understanding what the rule to be break is about. In other words understand the rule and then break it


Here is the small lecture.. haha Happy Valentine !

PS.. You can use the transparent pngs in your art, you can rotate and make them to fit to your pic to give idea of the rules.. sorry i gotta run again ..

There's no rush BFFT

If I get a chance I'll do something this weekend, to work with


Hopefully I've managed to fix the cock up at work my boss made, a bit of private thinking time without idiots running around panicking was all that was needed'

So I might even get some time tonight.

Forgot to say.. Golden ratio as a guide doesn´t have to fill whole picture instead part of the picture

Mona Lisa Golden Ratio Mona Lisa
I also used golden ratio in my latest image you saw.. tho its far away from old masters


Rule of Third usually applies to whole image

now gotta listen some music

What I'm after is something along these lines

I'd like a rose sort of closed within a flame but not on fire, and I'd like the two to become one somehow.

I can email you the images and/or the psd image if you like, this is a very basic start towards what I hope will be an amazing tattoo.

The finished tat will be about 2 inches wide and 5 inches long.

Have fun my friend/s if anybody else also wants to play.

There is absolutely no rush for this, I still need to save the money to get it done.

Probably killed the bloody leopard himself. Looks all sophisticated but how else did he get that fur.

I also question how he came by the silk, royal purple no less.

Questions without answers. That cane looks a little lethal, why does he need a cane ..... unless ...... it is used to hit one in the noggin.

Cody, you have not watched that movie as yet. I know this because when you do your avatar will change. You will not be able to resist.
