Critiques

:iconletter-oplz::iconletter-pplz::iconletter-iplz::iconletter-nplz::iconletter-iplz::iconletter-oplz::iconletter-nplz:

My critiques on other people's artwork. You can read my opinions on the details and feelings from the art I usually see.

Groups

My flea market contains some artists. There's a comic artist who does fan art of comic characters. He also sometimes takes other artists work so that he can help advertise other artists or help artists sell their work for money. I still have been considering showing him some of my art or making a piece for him so that he can help display my artwork.

Yeah, I do consider commissioning my art... like making artworks I can sell to raise a bit of money here and there. Just extra cash... but I think the main reason why I want some other people to advertise my art is... just for the sake of advertising my art. I would like to see my art on display... just to be noticed... or probably have other artists see me... now that I think about it, if other artists put my work with theirs or look at my work and like it... I could collab with artists, befriend artists from my local place... I would love to meet other artists.

But aside from that, the artist in his booth is a cool guy. He does like action figures and other pop culture from the comic and fantasy world. But those models and magazines he sells... he mainly puts his art out just to show the art, not to sell the art, which I do encourage as find encouraging as well.

There was another artist who I just recently discovered... he's a photographist, and I fell in love with his landscape photos. I later learned that he does potraits and pictures of models. While I don't take much interest in those, I still respect his photography and find him creative and a good photographer.

You know... maybe I don't have to have others show my art... if I can... I could always like... set up my own table for my own art... I dunno. (The library has also accepted others showing their art. I found another comic artist who I have admired a lot in the library)

I don't care. I love the flea market, and seeing many local artists there makes me all the more proud of living near a city of the arts.

Welcome to my page. I am Anthony, a cartoonist with an interest in furries. I am a Cancer, a moonchild and a son of Crab City, Baltimore. I was born under a full moon, and I am all lunatic.

I take interest in pop culture, whether I like it or not. Not only that, but I take myself as a hipster, only interested in the non-mainstream rock and music, as well as retro style and logo t-shirts.

Thank you for visiting my page.

Happy 24th Birthday Sakura! by Tony-Akita
Happy 24th Birthday Sakura!

A birthday gift for ShiroFeretto23

I hope this birthday gift doesn't make you... too hungry. ^^

Three Sakuras! Three to choose from!
The Sakura on the left is pretty cute... but drawing chopsticks kind of gave me so much hell, that I had to look up a reference picture for it. It turned out good and all, though.

The Sakura in the middle... a bit of awkward posing and all. Couldn't make up my mind and yadda yadda. I still like her expression... and the cake. The cake does look delicious... and stereotypical. Blue and pink and... did I forget to color in the candles?

The Sakura on the right may be my personal favorite, and not because I'm into boots and badass outfits... but this Sakura kind of reminds me a bit of Lara Croft for some reason... maybe it's her eyes, or maybe it's just she seems less anime-ish and more natural? Different drawing styles and all...

Well, you take your pick on which Sakura you like best, and I hope you like this drawing too, Sakura. I really enjoyed how it turned out... even if I did do a bit of a rush job in the end. Happy birthday!

Oh yeah! Spring is here! ^^" Sorry... a lot happened yesterday, and... eh-heh... I'm forgetful... happy second day of Spring!
Tagged by Dreamsel, of course...

Rules:
1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person has to share 10 facts about themselves.
3. Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for the 10 you tag.
4. Choose 10 people and put their icons in your journal.
5. You have to legitimately tag 10 people.
6. No tag-backs.
7. You can't say that you don't do tags.
8. You MUST make a journal entry.

10 facts about me...
  1. I enjoy going to flea markets... as the flea market I visit often has many artists
    • I have a boot/paw/foot fetish... I even love my own boots
      • I'm into any rock music. But I would prefer classic or indie rock... there ain't much good rock in the mainstream nowadays...
        • I'm a moon child... born under Cancer (the ruling planet for Cancer is the moon), born under a full moon even
          • I'm also a crab child. (born in Maryland... which should be called the Crab State as Baltimore has tons of crabs)
            • I have taken an interest in journalism... I want to be an indie rock radio host at least once in my life
              • I'll look at any writing or artwork that involves animals and/or fantasy elements... real life sucks
                • I love the Renaissance
                  • I'm part Italian, and part Japanese... proud to be both of them.
                    • I love a bike ride in the neighborhood... I feel free on a vehicle built for one, and I could use the exercise.


Dreamsel's line of questions...

1. Do you enjoy talking to strangers?

I will talk to a stranger now and then... I wouldn't talk to one in the middle of a crowd because... OH JESUS! WHY IS HE STARING AT ME OUT OF ALL THE OTHERS?

2. Describe yourself in as many or as little words as you like.

Perfectionist, furry, bicurious, paranoid, artist, hipster, moonchild, lunatic, smart, genius, jovial, secular, Renaissance Man, sea legged, biker, traveler, photographer, enthusiast, encouraging, discouraging (when in the wrong mood), heartful, cute, modest, humble, and I could go on...

3. Are you an easygoing person?

On the outside, yes. On the inside... eh?

4. How often would you nitpick details in a show or movie?

Probably much often... or when the timing calls for it.

5. How much do you like anime?

Just as much as the next guy, I guess.

6. Do you like fanfiction? If not, then do you think it'll always stay the way it is?

No, but I'll say this: Fanfiction can be good... but it's probably just as good if it is not... well, you know, based on MLP or Pokémon or Sonic... you know? They can be better off (in fact, maybe a lot better) if they are independent stories. Also, the Fanfiction mainstream is just like any other mainstream... full of exploited sex and violence.

7. How easy do you think getting popular can be? (God, that Little Einsteins song is starting to drive me crazy DX)

Sometimes too easy, other times not so much. The main thing is find your audience, or find your niche, and BAM! Friends and loyal supporters. But the most difficult task is trying to appeal to EVERYBODY. It's easy to get your messages or even yourself lost in everyone else's point of view. It's just what fame does. For the beginning artist, I think it's nicer to be more of an underground hit than a pop star... because your audience seems more like guys you do want to hang around rather than just Mr. Anonymous.

But as Andy Warhol said, everybody is famous for 15 minutes at least. You can branch out to other audiences; there is no limit to art. I'd recommend having a cult following to fall back on when you fall from fame... or actual friends.

8. How were your opinions on songs, movies, or other arts like when you were a lot younger?

Songs were good back when I was young... now Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber dominate the industry... everyone else is either gone now or just one hit wonders, even to this day there are one hit wonders who are... well, better than the mainstream. Then again, I would listen to anything when I was young... but there are those that stood out...

Movies are kind of in the same boat... the good movies seem to come from the industry giants such as Disney or DreamWorks... which are probably film giants for a reason. But yes, I think I saw a lot of good movies and such when I was young... they don't make movies like they used to back then.

Art... well, eh... I think art hasn't changed much... because let's face it... there are so many art styles in the 20th and 21st century. Just pick the art style you grew up with, that is all.

9. Are you fluffy?

I grow my hair out, yes. I want to go for the Scott Pilgrim or Anthony Keidis look. It's a senior student/college thing.

10. Does art always have to be serious? 

Well... that has always been a topic on my mind. I do want people to notice me as a comic or cartoon artist, and branch out to other audiences. However, I am not one to follow quotas or anything... at least, business quotas... quotas stress me out. There's deadlines and everything... free time doesn't seem as free as it used to be. Also, I sometimes draw just because... because I am in a bad mood and need to vent or just because I got this idea and I want to share it the best way I know how... by art. Not only that, but I also want to pursue other forms of art, like literature and performance art.

With that said, no. Art does not have to always be serious... but of course, art has been an important part of life since... since the beginning of time. In the Renaissance, during the Protestant movement, art has been considered to have a powerful impact on politics. You see old art focusing on Jesus, the Virgin, and many other religious figures. Many people back then thought art glorified the Church, and that we should not empower such groups as the church to that degree. So people made their art more secular, more observant of life and the now.

And considering how we also have pop art and expressionism... I still think art is secular. Sure, art can be serious but overall... it depends on the artist, the situation, and the motive... (I really thought this one over... sorry for the long read XD)

(I think I may have contradicted myself at some times... god, how I can be talkative)

Now it's my turn to ask you...

  1. How would you like your art to be noticed?
    • Do you enjoy flea market trips?
      • Would you accept a challenge?
        • Who's your favorite YouTube or Internet reviewer?
          • Nonconformist or conformist?
            • What's the best thing or best artwork you ever done? One thing that makes you proud and keeps making you proud?
              • What's your favorite genre of gaming?
                • What code do you think all artists follow?
                  • Do you enjoy sporting events?
                    • What's your inspiration in life or art?

Happy St. Patrick's Day 2015! by Tony-Akita
Happy St. Patrick's Day 2015!
After the ordeal with the wardrobe, Jenny succumbs to a shot of Guinness and... well, she got a little TOO used to the costume.

Next thing you know, she is down on the couch, and all of a sudden, her costume starts falling off. Bra and panties weren't really a smart idea to wear in the first place... and all that alcohol, all over the place, started soaking into her boots. In fact, if you were to lick one of her boot soles, you'd get drunk.

Also, Amy is a fairy... there's that.

~Tony

Happy St. Patrick's Day 2015!
