Hey there. I wonder if there is anyone out there who likes to make art. This can be painting, drawing, digital art, photography, wood craving, sculpture, etc. Whether you are the next great artist or just doodled something during class, I'm pretty sure we would love to see what you've made.

I guess I'll share you some of my attempts at art.

Both of them are oil paintings. The first is a self-portrait attempt, the second is a portrait of a friend of mine.

Hello!

Oil Paints are really cool, nice colours used in the second one, and nice work on the dress, looks good!

Good luck with your painting more.

This is a digital painting i'm just having a go at, it's been a while, but i've recently started working on it again.

Yeah, I really liked the dress. It's one of the things I like about the painting.

As far as your work. it's pretty good. I definitely like the shadows and wrinkles on the face. I've attempted at digital paint a few times and I couldn't get that into it. Though, I do like the undo button.

Great paintings guys! I'm not a painter, I tried learning with watercolour but gave up since I just couldn't get any technique right. Below is my attempt at a tree. I watched a youtube video to learn how to paint it but when I tried other things, I wasn't happy so stopped. Maybe I'll try again later on. I scanned this in that's why you can see the photoshop tools.

The second image was drawn on paper with pencil then scanned and coloured digitally. Don't really like how I did her head but I do like how I did the clothes.

Water colours are beautiful, I'm sure, with practise, you could get a really good technique for them!

Nice work Nyla.

Thanks so much Mayuyu. Yeah I have seen really beautiful paintings done with watercolour.

While I'm here, I'll post something that would interest the females members more. For a while I played around with make up.

I do a bit of (bad) photography when I get time, which isn't often lol. I just try to capture the beauty of nature without too much Photoshop, i'm still trying to capture that perfect sunset hmmm...

These were mostly taken on Dartmoor which I live close to, Cornwall and Somerset.

Those are some pretty good drawings. I myself prefer good old fashion pencil and paper just because I am really comfortable with drawing.

Hello there

Perhaps you can help me with this image. Be aware it's HD size.

It's just not quite right, can any of you assist to enhance it? it just feels off, but I cannot think of what to do. Can you help?

Orlok that's an awesome image. I wouldn't go mad enhancing it. I think some really simple techniques could make it pop. I'd add a splash of colour in the backgruond (just some simple hues), something really simple and then use some blurring techniques or a cheeky lens flare (a better one) to enhance it.

Edit - Also I think it may be the actual composition you're finding a bit off. If the head was moved towards the left of the screen so that we had more of a view to the right it'd maybe sit a bit better.

Hullo there,

Points taken!

I didn't want to overdo the lens flare as they're so over requested, but i'll give it a go and I'll slide the camera over as suggested.

Thanks for the assist.

Yeah it looks good so far, just changing the composition as Fraggle said could help out. Maybe a bit of blurring or a slight vignette too? Really nice model, did you make that yourself? Nice 3d work!

As for myself, i've managed to almost finish my portrait, it's changed a lot:

Second version was made for my artclass diary of editing an image into the style of one of your favourite artists:

Hello there,

My model? well, yes and no. It's a heavily tweaked Poser model, I wanted him good looking but not perfect, hence the broken nose etc. I don't like to spend more than an hour or two on any image.

I dont have a real artistic bone in my body!

Your art is splendid indeed.

I used to be into oil painting and printed art, but haven't be active for the last couple of years. Lately I've begun thinking about getting back into it again.

The three first are quick photoshop drafts for a acrylic painting assignment.

      I'm constantly thinking of things that would allow us to run straight into the woods at spawn to live off of the land. Rope is essential in MANY craftable things right now. I know you can create rope with 2 stacks of 6 rags. But I think it would be cool if we could craft rope from leather strips or something. Maybe use a snare to catch a rabbit then use that leather to craft a rope (first the way that we tan leather would need overhauling, as I've mentioned before in this thread)

      I think it would be cool if we could craft a cooking tripod. That way if we find a cooking pot  and rope (for bow or fishing pole) we are good to go to live off of the land. 
      Maybe it could be 3 ashwood branches and some rope?

      Hi,
      another great improvement for (persistant?) servers would be a crafted storageplace and hide that, if you want to leave the place, can be closed and hided. Possible could be a 30 slot storage within the storageplace.
      Since I like the survival aspect of the game a lot more than PVP, I would greatly appricate if this idea would be considered for release sometime.
      Possible look see picture.
