I feel like Photography is cheesy and the easy mode of art. You see something and make a picture of it. And its considered "Art" to me pictures are made to show art but not be the art itself. Anyone else feels the same or is it just me?

i don't share your opinion but given the fact people are childish around here thumbing you down for an opinion, have my thumb.

I for one am rather impressed by photography of living beings, as this takes the skill to capure a situation certainly never occuring again in the exact same way as it occured to that moment in time

That's why I like astrophotography. There's a whole load of factors that go into a single final product, and any one of them can be tweaked to change the result. It's the true definition of an art - something that has to be refined and practiced.

A good photograph tells a story and makes the viewer ask questions about the characters in it. A cheap photograph is just something with a filter slapped on

I got a nice camera recently and I've been playing around with photos and it's pretty fun.

photography is the art of cutting from reality.
You essentially capture a rectangular view of the world and make that the entire focus.
The ways you manipulate the camera certainly takes skill. Maybe not quite as much as if you were to make the same image from scratch.
Photography is again, essentially more about seeing than making: The Photographer sees reality, and decides to enhance a certain, small perspective with light and arrangement.

That's the way I see and approached it so far, at least.

So to you its only art if photographer had the intent of making a piece, had the skill and made adjustments to make the photo?

sorta' kinda'?
It's mostly intent and message that makes it art.
Adjustments not neccessary, but wanted, if a good product is to be produced.
Just clicking around with your cam on auto can get neat results, but rarely gets the optimum by chance. And I believe that, if you strive to create something, you should at least try to create the best thing you can do.
Manipulation is not always wanted, and setting adjustment on the camera is not always something people can just do. But they should at least attempt.
It's all about transmitting a feeling or message, as all art does.

It's art if the artist wanted to transmit an idea, perspective or feeling to his/her audience, and tried to spread it to their audience.

There is a difference between depicting an object and depicting an aesthetic, for a lack of a better term.
It's not the object, it's the persective about the object that makes it art, if that's understandable.

What you said gives me a faint memory of a college photo 101 course. The rules of composition and what to adjust gives you more flexibility, knowing the rules helps point you in the direction you want and/or what works. We make strong buildings by doing what works, and we make interesting buildings by being creative. High skill (experienced) does both well.

From my experience, I don't see anyone ever agreeing on what is considered art or not. Just don't think about it and make pictures that you like. The argument never ends. I've had a classmate forgot to do his homework, crumpled up a piece of paper, called it "Impulse", and the professor hailed him as a genius (This is massachusetts).

I'm not entirely grasping what you mean, are you saying you feel like the content of the photo is the art, and not the photo itself?

From my impression, photo is a medium and the content that invokes thought is art. If you think about painting, we interpret what we see to compose a piece, photos are kind of being painted by the light and muh science. But the photo we have taken becomes art when you intentionally create it to invoke thought. Art is art. We still have rules in art for composition that we apply, and however we do it is a means to an end.

Apparently, my shenanigans made me end up with 3 instances of the program floating on my drives.

Scenario: Buyer buys comic commissioned from artist. Buyer puts on website, says he drew it. Comic takes off, gets popular. Artist can take you to court for 1. unlicensed use, 2. Plagiarizing. Buyer loses. This is why people are saying it's a bad idea.

You are quite literally asking about committing plagiarism.
The worst part it sounds like your not even joking.
If you pay an artist you pay them for the work they did but it stays their work (even if they allow you to use it) and their Intellectual property.
If you really want to you can also buy the work and the Intellectual property but finding an artist that agrees to that is or very stupid or in a big need of money. And even if you did all that you are a cunt for taking credits. And you are going to look like an idiot if some one points out its not yours because its very easy to distinguish some one his art style.

as for ishallsmiteyou: what gear you had when making this? some of the shit (like the linings on the roof of the cabinet and the sides ) seem to have been worked with proper tools, yet it seems like the joints,some of the finishing touches and such were done without proper gear?


also it doesnt seem like you have (idk wth the actuall word is so..) varnished it yet. based on the close up of the surface atleast?

Unvarnished as of yet, just came fresh out of the shop. Made it in my school's shop, so equipment is a little sparse and sub-par at best, but it gets the job done. Still need to break the edges on it and finish sanding it down. The joints were a bitch to get done since our dado set is duller than the British sky, mostly done with a chisel and an excessive amount of swearing. Had to do some of the top's routered edge by hand cause the top was too warped to run the right hand side through properly. Course the warp's not a problem on the top anymore what with being screwed into the frame.

aa varnishing should be done before assembly. otherwise you get bad finish on the corners. and yeah. the joints bring the looks of the work down a bit. but still. this is pretty good looking considering the tools and wood you had to work with.

no worries. also for future referrences. a cheap and effective way to make good joints is
drill pin connection (idk if this is the proper term...i just used google translator) all you need for that is some wooden pins,a drill and something to squeeze the two adjoining parts together...and glue if you wish for some.

It started as a doodle- on my tablet [Note 10.1 Pic related] (caused the low resolution). Then I transferred it via Dropbox to my PC where continued with CS5 and got lazy on the coloring (the weapons are spared out).

It is a helmet. The character received it as a reward this year.

Honestly I think it's gotten a little worse.

What your doing is something I believe people refer to as "bookending" and it's when you put two nearly symmetrical objects on the sides of a drawing, like framing a photo but only on two sides.

You want to avoid this, it causes problems with perspectve and especially with composition. Try removing the big dark building on the far left and replace it with something lighter. Maybe even a dim light source to give your objects rim lighting.

I'll do a really quick paintover just to show what I mean hang on.
