In my graphic arts class at school, each year we redo paintings by the Masters. Some people chose to do Mona Lisa, some chose to do random works by Picasso.

I chose Katsushika Hokusai.

The first one I did was a 3D version of "The Great Wave". I drew each wave and boat onto different pieces of cardboard to make a 3D layer effect. Then I created a stencil & spray painted each layer, then went back and added details on the ships & waves.



The second was a painting of his woodcut "The Dream of the Fisherman`s Wife". I drew the picture onto the canvas then painted it. It was pretty hard getting the right colors, but I think it turned out pretty good. [this picture was taken before it was completed]

3-d waves = KEEPER!  You should do it on wood so it is more time-withstanding than cardboard.

I was thinking about doing it using plywood or something like that, but cardboard was all I had.  Undecided I might do another one using wood in the future.  Grin

I was actually thinking about getting one. I`ll set one up later tonight. I need to scan some of my stuff in Cheesy

Although, which is better? I`ve seen a lot of people use Flikr, DeviantArt, etc. Which is the best?

i'm not sure, I always thought flickr was just a picture hosting site isn't it?? dunno I'll have a look now.............................

yep, it's more of a photobucket thing (i think)... where as deviant art is specifically for art, and it has a massive community, you can submit any art you like, and if it's just doodles then you can submit them to your 'scraps' I think it's great! let me know if you get one, then I can watch you Cheesy

Project Vox -  What will you say?

I, Shout, along with fellow artist, Howl, make 5x4" cardstock booklets with our artwork on them, and leave them in random places for people to find.  The goal: to inspire and provoke thought

Have you seen any of our cards?
