    Thread Pretentious Art Critique

    Hey guys I wanted to share some of my art with you

    Here's an anatomy study I did earlier on


    You may have noticed that my anatomy style is kinda unique. That's because he's a unique character. He's your basic ninja steampunk wizard hero from the Rutabaga empire, a country I had this great idea for. So he's also a Rutabugian.

    Some more pose practices


    I think his nose is a bit off in that one. Also his ears might be a bit long. Anyways tell me what you think.




    Tried to introduce some dynamic action into this pose

    Hey Hayashida your art is really good but I think her hand on the right is higher than the one on the left. Also she looks like she has a triceratops sitting on her head. To solve this, I advise that you begin eating birdseed after your meals and doing the chicken dance before going to bed.

    I call it many names. The two that seem to be most accurate tho are "Hell" and "Work".

    The grey skin of the character, juxtaposed with her tears and obvious sad pose, make her appear to be weeping for her own mortality. Her skin is grey because she's both a corpse and a living being, reminiscent of the epiphany of L'estranger, in which the protagonist realises it doesn't matter whether he's alive or dead, and allows himself to be trialled and executed. The red background represents blood, further reinforcing this theme of mortality, and the white rectangles resemble a measuring instrument. The character is sad not only because of her mortality, but because of the way others seem to quantify her, thus reducing her to a static object. The eyes symbolise the others who perceive and label her. This is a work of existential significance; the quantification of the self through the views of others is a central theme of existentialist philosophy, and the source of Sartre's phrase 'hell is other people' from No Exit. The patterning of the character's dress makes her appear indistinct; she feels a non-entity under the gaze of the other. This reinforces the theme of existential angst.

    In conclusion, Minsk is a simplistic work, but one that may hold significance for the precedents it sets. It interweaves violence and existential angst in a way surely symbolic of the modern condition and all that entails.
