I would like to make a public service announcement on this piece of shit information floating around the internet. I’m NOT going to take pot shots at an artist’s personal palette but this is just misinformation to thousands of other people out there who may or may not know better.
Number one. IF YOU ARE PAINTING, YOU’RE NOT REFERENCING A DIGITAL SWATCH. So first of all, you need to know where paint comes from. I dont even know where to start with this. I mean seriously, the statement about not being able to make pure, strong colours with cadmiums is just so full of ignorance, I don’t even know where to start.
If you need visual evidence, let’s take a look at this picture
This picture was invented before CMYK ever came around, tbh. Too bad Klimt is dead or else he would attest to this just like EVERY OTHER TRADITIONAL PAINTER will.
Mixing colours is not magic nor is it as easy as picking colours from a digital swatch. It takes practice to understand how certain colours react with one another, employ painting techniques such as not mixing white with every goddamn colour to lighten a hue.
Let’s take another look at a somewhat LESS brightly painted piece.
The saturation is not nearly as bright but the chroma is pure. There are no muddy colours, nothing is brown where it was not meant to be. Because Kandinsky knows how to mix colours. It didn’t happen overnight nor was he born with that knowledge. It was years and years of practise and work.
Even Klee knew what was up. He was not a master artist by any means but he worked goddamn hard at it and look what he created.
Here’s another Klimt because we all love him so:
CMYK exists because it does not know how to replicate the natural pigments of paint that can reflect light. It’s a beautiful, beautiful fake at best. I love CMYK. I even want to get a tattoo that says CMYK. But it is by no means the one and only.
So PLEASE. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF AND CROSS REFERENCE YOUR COLOUR THEORY BEFORE YOU BUY INTO THIS GARBAGE. NEWTON KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN HE MADE THE COLOUR WHEEL GUYS.
PAINTERS SPEAK OUT FOR OUR BELOVED COLOUR WHEEL! REBLOG AND REPOST! Whoo!
EDIT// Additionally, I re-read that ignorant infographic or whatever and have come to realize that the artist classifies pthalo blue/green and hansa yellow as CMYK. That is not CMYK guys. CMYK is used for digital prints because you can’t use paint. Duh. God, that information is so wrong, it wasn’t even worth making this post.
Day 1082 - 18 November 2013
with a dash of positivity
And I could see any hard core horse riding enthusiast going “What are you doing!? That’s not how you ride!”
I guess he’s trying to blend in and not be the
centaur of attention
So here’s the deal. I need around $50-$100 USD to open a bank account. I have no way of making money right now and I would like to get it done as soon as possible! My solution: Take commissions and have the money sent to my Mom’s PayPal, who will then use that money to help me open the account. I trust her wholeheartedly with my money so there’s no risk of it getting stolen (from me) or anything.
If you can’t help out, signal boosting is appreciated!
So, what I’m offering is adoptable characters!
bad art blogs are really fucking shitty let me tell you why
back when i was in my deviantart phase i used to make shitty standard weeaboo ocs and shitty traditional weeby art that at the time i thought was good and i would post it online to show to my friends and to have fun
the thing that actually stopped me from posting my art online (and what effectively made me quit art as a whole) was seeing my art on a bad art blog ripping apart my OC and laughing at my art and linking back to my deviantart encouraging other people to do the same
i put everything i’d ever drawn into storage on my account, feeling ashamed of myself, and cried like a fucking baby
to this day i am still terrified of posting my art online and i haven’t picked up a pencil and drawn nearly anything in two years because hell, i know my art isn’t good but i can’t draw anything for leisure out of fear i’m going to get mocked and laughed at for just doing something that makes me happy
you can say you’re not bullies as much as you want but when you’re effectively making other people feel like shit for doing something for fun and to feel creative and a part of something
you fucked up
you’re a bully
Can we add Retsupurae to this
I fukin love 14th century art art because everyone looks so shady and suspicious of ppl around them its AMAZING
or just like they know something u dont and oh my gdfuck i cant
I believe the highest point is reached in Simone Martini’s Annunciation
and the look of absolute hatred Mary and Gabriel exchange.
"mary i know ur only half a virgin"
"fuck off gabriel"
I’m bothered by how the outlet and plug don’t match
i feel like thats the point of the piece. she has insomnia so she cant “plug in” to sleeping.
speaking of art history
this is Undine by Chauncey Bradley Ives. she’s at the Smithsonian.
and this is her from the back
that is marble, y’all.
carved so thin you can SEE THE LIGHT THROUGH IT.
fucking art, y’all.
the realism of thin fabric folding and draping over a freaking perfectly sculpted body is killing me
when u draw something and u hate it and everyone loves it
when u draw something u like and everyone ignores it
there are two types of artists
- those who can only draw animals
- those who can draw anything but an animal
I think my definition of art is something along the lines of “If someone thinks it’s art, then it’s art.”
Year of the Snake, Kim Herbst

THIS MAKES ME MAD
I never realized it spelled out 2013 I thought he was just drawing a snake.
Ontario, Canada-based photographer Matt Molloy recently created a gorgeous series of sky images by stacking multiple photos onto one. The individual photos are most often taken from the timelapses he shoots. The final photo has a stunning painterly effect, almost as if someone had taken a paintbrush to the sky and smeared its beautiful colors.
When asked at 500px how many photos it took to create the one seen above, he replied, “I’m not exactly sure, but I used hundreds of photos to create this one image.”
