Poor little Laika. This is such a beautiful painting. How she sits, her face, her paws. It all has a sad air around it. I love the light in the corner though, with al those dots, they look a bit like fireflies. It's a bit soothing to the whole picture. I like it.
She can’t sleep anymore. She still remembers the cold Moscow streets from back from 1954. Things would have been much better there. The spotlight and glamor seems much colder than from where she used to live. Listening to the silence in the room and staring at the darkness in the corner she sits on the edge of the bed. Feet barely touching the cold floor and hands on her lap, she’s thinking. Dim yellow light from a table lamp shows an orange blanket and dark green walls of her small bed room. Hanging on it is a black and white picture of Stalin staring at the same darkness as she is. The light constructs a faint shadow of her on the white crumpled bed sheets. If the light was any brighter you could see her thoughts. Thoughts no one will ever know.
... still there are people who draw and paint far better then this on deviant art.. FAR FAR better and do not need refrances... i am not mad i am saddened... and sorry for the spelling i have dislexia and i can not corect it all, even with foxfires help i can not tell if some of the word are corect
Using references doesn't make you a worse artist. You sound incredibly ignorant and naive. Also, don't attack the artist for getting a DD. It's not like it was their choice, not to mention it was very deserved. It's incredibly disrespectful.
yeah... i have got it from a few others so stand down and my hate was misplaced.. i am mad at DA for A. the same people B. the same kinds of art C. Lots of naked people B. the same work in a different way and E. people who say they did not do all the work them self's...
Getting DD's... truly i am sorry to have even bothered saying anything... If Deviant art listened to its users more often maybe i would not be so mad. and i Admint i am no Artist at best i am a tactlessness hack.. with a mild for of autism and dislexia but i am not ignorant... that is far more hurtful then i think you understand. I put a comment some where and it was ment for the artist, and was most likly to get egnored... You where not the artist nor should you stand up and be rude back to some one, yes i was unhappy. No i should not have said what i did... NO you should not have gotten angry with me.
Okay, so I'll take care of this: -I understand you're mad at dA. Don't go off on the artist for that. -Understand "not doing the work themselves" and "referencing" are two different things. -Saying that someone who uses references makes them a worse artist IS an ignorant statement. That's a fact, not an insult. In fact, references are highly promoted by art professors everywhere. If you don't know how to draw something, how are you supposed to draw it without reference? -Having autism and dyslexia shouldn't be an excuse for any kind of behavior, if that's what you mean. -Not once was I rude in my reply. However, you were rude in your comment to this artist. And I know your comment was to the artist, but expect replies when it's a public post on a public forum.
Many great artists use reference for elements of their art. Greats like Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo spent their lifetimes collecting it. I am sure many of the artists that you deem draw and paint better than this without references probably do use reference. It's not plagiarism - it's a tool.
