@samfrankovskyrules Little right brain exercise
@_rizzscorner That's so cool
@albertalsina89 Great feed!
@christopher_nolan_neely6047 @_rizzscorner it's a copy (so far) of a classic oil painting. it is the format that most embodies the ugly, dwarven, left-handed child that was cast out of olympus, by his mother, juno. what was cast away grew into a great blessing for human - kind, as well as the immortal beings. for me it has come to symbolize what a person can become despite apparent negative attributes, as determined by a given society. vulcan says, "i may be ugly, squat, and sinister-ly left-handed; but, i can through the power of my will take earth, air, and fire: then subjugate them; craft them into beautiful and functional treasure. a being that was once discarded, has produced tools, weapons, and jewelry which the beautiful people cannot live without."
@christopher_nolan_neely6047 @albertalsina89 thank you. i struggle to produce beauty. it is worthwhile and frustrating simultaneously. any artist knows.
@christopher_nolan_neely6047 @captin.insane.0 that is particularly appropriate, since the ugly, little fellow is left-handed. thanks.
@christopher_nolan_neely6047 Some people might cheapen my results by saying that i am little more than a copy-paste machine. my intention is to learn from the proportion laid out by another artist. then to paint what i see in the character and the mythology of the story.
@christopher_nolan_neely6047 Davinci's vitruvian man applies only to the average / ideal physique. many variations are obviously distributed throughout human beings. artists and scientists look for simple patterns that have complex and important variables. the mean average is important ; but the variation, in the extreme, warrant close study, like our dna.
