Ok, is it just me, or does this community suck the big black cock of death?
I mean, it was an awesome idea to begin a community, but the mods let it go to shit.
Recent applications have barely any comments, or none for a while.
I was working on getting three pieces, becuase I only had one with lots of detail and precision (my art is more expressive).
But after finishing the second, I just said 'to hell with it"....

(please pardon the cross-post)

Anyone have any ideas on how to remove acrylic varnish from a canvas? I have heard that isopropyl alcohol is a big no-no. I'm going to experiment with a few things today and see what happens. Although if anyone can save me hours of agony I'd sure appreciate it.
;)

I haven't been able to keep up. And I've certainly not drawn anything in a while. Let's say this marks the beginning of the end of a long dry spell.

Ok, I haven't been able to devote much time to this community lately... or any lj at all for that matter... but I'm back, so I thought I'd post a piece of art that I enjoy.

I AM NOT CLAIMING I MADE THIS, I JUST REALLY LIKE IT SO DON'T THROW A HISSY FIT THAT THIS ISN'T MY WORK. JUST BECAUSE I'M NOT AN ARTIST MYSELF, DOESN'T MEAN I CAN'T APPRECIATE IT.

That being said... here it is.



I really like this one, but all I can tell you about it is that it's painted by Franz von Stuck... if you don't know what a sphinx is... get a dictionary. Yeh, I really like the use of red and shadow. Plus the piece itself seems to evoke some stirring emotions... is the kiss of the sphinx a reward, or a death sentence? Notice how her claws are wrapped around his waist... yeh I REALLY like this one.
