    Oh! I do a little! Not professional just do it as I like Arts!

    I do all with Pencil that's what I think ancient one and gorgeous :)

    Yes, I do pencil drawings myself.
    It is a gorgeous medium.

    You do people, landscapes, abstract?

    That's excellent, Moni! (I didn't happen to check that thread.)

    I also prefer to draw people, rather than landscapes or still lifes. For abstract stuff my favorite medium is colored pencil.

    Thanks! zoobyshoe!

    It's very hard to find Science people (mainly students) interested in Arts! They just love arts, enjoy movies but not make many!

    It's good that you're not only interested but also do them...fine :smile:

    From the thread "Playing Music" I find out alot of people who post here play musical instruments. I'm betting there are alot of amateur artists at PF as well.

    I've been drawing and painting since I was about 7. My prefered medium has always been charcoal though. I've made a few bucks from some of my work but I don't think I will do it all my life since I'm still young.

    What kind of subject matter do you prefer?

    I don't get the impression charcoal is an easy medium to handle.

    Yes! einsteinian77!
    What's your subject matter?

    Do anyone of you know computer arts...I mean: photoshop, Corel, Illustrator or even 3DStudio Max or Maya ???

    My favorite subject matter has always been faces. I've done hundreds of faces and just about all of them I've done in charcoal, ink, and pencil. I really only use oils for landscapes.

    I don't know any photoarts really.

    who are your favorite artists? Mine are van gogh, Escher, and someone you probably haven't heard of

    100 faces! Awsome! don't you upload your works? We just want to see your work and enjoy your arts!

    But I can only use pencils, no ink or any other media :( Actually I'm self taught :)

    My fav. may be not so famous one but I think you should see his works.......Exellent isn't it !!!

    Here is his fantastic gallery:

    I am actually more of an arts person interested in the sciences - I work in most physical painting and drawing mediums, and in computer mediums as well,except I have only played with 3d programs similar to Maya. I'm also interested in a-life, though a lot of people don't consider that to be art.

    It seems fine too!

    I think Greg now can open a secion in PF Lounge for the creative works of the PF members! That may be any good poem, poetry or any other art works! For art works img link will be better than uploading.....

    It's true there are sepatete sections in many good sites for those particular subjects. But those are for professionals...here members are mainly science orientied so their works may not be at that level. But still they can share their works with these familier faces :)

    Then ...

    I don't know how to upload, but maybe you can tell me how? I liked the gallery you showed me very much he seems like a very talented sketcher. I'd really like to show you my work so if you could tell me how to I would be grateful, thanks.

    This describes me as well. I've always found both art and science intriguing, but the bulk of the weight has been on the art side.
    What kind of subject matter do you do in your painting and drawing?

    What is a-life?
     
  18. Dec 1, 2003 #17
    Yes, I think van Gogh was the greatest. Personally, I can't paint and I can't do landscapes, so I am mezmerized by his abilities with those two things.

    Of course I like many, many artists, but he is my favorite.

    I don't have a scanner, myself, but maybe I could do it on a friend's computer. It would be fun to show my stuff.

    I didn't have much time to answer the question yesterday. So here is the rest of my post.

    I'm a lot like you zooby and rick. An artist interested in physics.

    I've done works in oil, acrylic, watercolor, pen and ink, pencil, color pencil, charcoal, etc. even clay sculpture (I made several thousand dollars sculpting clay Bas Relief works with western themes that were turned into molds and copied with a carving machine into wooden panels for executive desks), and computer art, using Corel Draw and Paint Shop Pro.

    My favorite medium is acrylic paint. I started painting in oils when I was about 9 years old and switched to acrylic when I heard they dry faster.

    Of my recent painting projects I have two favorites, one is a series of imaginary nudes in outdoor settings in the moonlight and torchlight. The other is a series of planet paintings.

    Hence, the name, no doubt.
    Way to go! It's difficult to get hooked up with the right people to get paid appropriately for your work.

    Portraits of Native Americans are one of my own favorite subjects.
     
  23. Dec 3, 2003 #22
    Yup.

    Yup again. That was a great time for me as an artist. I was also going to the shore every couple of weeks to paint, as I would stand there working, someone would come along and buy the painting or commission another work. I live too far away from the shore to do that now.

    I like the works of Remington and Charles Russell.

    Photographs of Native Americans are interesting also.

    zooby...i hope you are not just referring to art as drawing and painting...my fiance calls me an artisan because i create many different "useful" things that have my own artistic flair such as beadwork, cooking and my newest interest of quilting...quilting can be just like a painting with using vibrant olors of fabric that create an overall picture...to me, art is the human spirit at it's finest, and this is expressed in many different ways...

    Don't worry. In my mind art is anything that is done artistically.

    I also have made quilts and have tons of books on quilting. I have seen quilts which, in my mind, should be hung in museums next to van Goghs and Monets.

    For some people it is necessary to create a big distinction between things that are made solely to be beautiful and things that also have a utilitarian purpose. I have never had much interest in that distinction.

    Music, noise, drawing, video, dance, sculptures, acting, spoken word, writting fiction, and radio are my most common.
    some of it gets reccorded some not.
