“Albert”

“Albert”
A portrait of Albert Einstein

It’s amusing how little things inspire us, and some inspire as such to adopt a new style of art; Do something out of the ordinary – consume ‘life’ in an adventure. To explore new possibilities and to adopt and evolve oneself.
These past few weeks, I have indeed watched a decent share of ‘Great’ films that I consider to be masterpieces of the ‘Cinema’.
Now, here I have painted a portrait of Albert Einstein; A great- great mind of the early 20th Century who poured on our minds the knowledge; to be as technologically advanced as we (the World ) is now. I imagined as, what would it be like to study under his teachings. To be there, one of the students.
___________
// Realism – ( Hyper-realism ? )
//Art Process
Portraiture – this is what urges my finger-tips these days. To grab a brush ( a real brush or a digital one ) and start off- moving closer and closer to achieving ‘the’ Hyper-real. Works so detailed and accurately toned that the result seems near photographic. Though, without the inspiration that those old films provided me with- this would not have been possible. As, the photographs of Einstein are just a few- and for my work I could not use multiple references – as the behaviour of light in nature is complex and imagination fails then- leading the artist in-vain with impractical results. So, a printed image in my hand- I referred to that continually in process of this painting. It is painted just as one would paint a ‘Oil on Canvas’ painting. Only a single layer is used for the subject ( Background layers are separate). Firstly, the rough tonal variations were painted, then the rough micro pores- then the detailed ones; with the lighting continually corrected along the way. The most minute of the details were added without reference, those were by my previous experience with realistic art. Also, hues were altered to end-up with a greyish-brown hue, to promote the feel of ‘importance’. However, nothing was referred for the coat, practising on the canvas, I ended up with a material that mimicked leather- so I went with that.
That is all//

Spreading the Word….of Eric G.C. Weets

I have been wanting to share this for quite some time, but have forgotten time and time again. Would you believe me, if I said that that the World has been missing out on a truly stellar piece of art, created by an aging artist, and has taken as of yet 56 years (and counting) to create? No? Well, as part of a community on Google+, consisting of a great many artists. We found the profile of Eric G.C. Weets ( here https://plus.google.com/116397728655683676966/about ) ( run by Filomina Pawar on his behalf).

_______

He has created a true masterpiece, which took him 56 years to create. Titled ’90 days from B to C’ is a huge painting measuring 182 x 487 cm. One cannot post this as a single image, so here, it is divided into tiles and some of them are displayed as follows ( images from Eric G.C.Weets G+ page )

So as you can see, is this amazingly complex or what?!

In Eric G.C.Weet’s own words:

I have tried to capture on canvas, with deep meditation and understanding the subconscious, the evolution of creative mind, beginning from the cave man – working the walls of his caves to the modern, contemporary, conceptual artist of today, without letting my own ego interfere in the process

And his profile on G+ states

I am dyslexic and because the problems I had with the teachers in primary school, made that most probably, I prefer drawing to writing, right from my childhood. So over the years, I developed a visual language of my own subconsciously, which led to the unique art works that I make today.

In conclusion, i would like to say that Spread the Word, so that the world knows about this; so that he can get the true recognition he deserves.

P.S.

You can also catch his regular Hangouts on his Google+ page, where he paints Live!

Ciao….

Gothic…Stunning?

So it’s Monday (I guess…..no rly) …well what ever day it is… Im gonna share this piece of art that I made like 2-3 days ago…so here :

Image

So there, the following are the details (taken from my RedBubble Store) (Yes Store, and you can get all the prints of my artworks from there …..wont you? :3 )

Hi all! I hope you like this one. This is from my series of black and white steampunk/Gothic art. Her eyes are ‘exaggerated’ as they are stylized. Artists tend to give more attention to the eyes as humans look at eyes first and then the ‘face’. The stylization was done to give an increased sense of….visual beauty, so that if hung on a wall; It will be quite stunning and attention grabbing. Made only two colors, gray and white (absence of gray), I present to you, The Gothic Eyes.

So as I said above (cuz who would go through the ‘details’) …i made the eyes huge, so that it’ll look more awesome….and awesom-ify (if thats a word) the wall it’s hanging on….

So there…… Ciao

PS

Why the QR code? well scan it and it’ll take you direct to my store to buy the print……And get the damn print you shall! !!

PS II

I feel suddenly bored………..Why oh why?

The Surreal Emotions

Stay 

Yes, just stay..thats what I titles my second artwork made in the same way as my previous artwork (the girl in the machines thingy)…. It starteed as a doodle (as all of my artwork pfft) ..and then it got pretty serious..I ended up created something that was in the back of my mind for quite some time. Draw art that defines the ‘feeling’ of robots and machines.. (and this all started when I first watched Tezuka’s Metroporisu, yeah, Tezuka, you awesome awesome dude!)…..So, here it is…….. Stay

Image

Haha, this time I wont copy the details from Shadowness, but do the opposite..yes, I have uploaded it here first.. Just for YOU ppl [not you, but youuuuu] 

Details

I have had wanted to make an artwork that describes the feeling/emotions of robots. This was to much extend influenced by the films of the great person, Tezuka. Especially his film Metroporisu which is very special to me (and in the number 1 spot in my fav movie list) ^^. The artwork above describes a sad robot who has an arm missing, and is holding a balloon in his other hand ( or something) …. A cat then comes and sits with the robot, as it is curious of this machinery. So, the sad robot wants the cat to ‘Stay’ with him, and not go away, as it will then again be ‘lonely’ and sad..  The steampunk/monochrome style was used to compliment the feel/emotions in this scene by a great amount. Hope you like this one… 🙂

So there, and Reblog it if you like!  🙂

This image will be available on my Shadowness and my Redbubble Store shorty, so that you can buy a high quality (full reslution) print from there…

Ciao!

I’m Without Doubt! [ SteamPunk-ish Room Entrance]

Hi, today is Sunday! so, Hi Sunday! Ummm, so, Gothic Room Entrance Eh?

Yes Exactly!

For the past few days, this little sentence has been stuck on my tongue

You Bet Your Ass that […..]

And I have no idea that from where I picked it up. So,its no wonder that soon I got an idea that to ‘why not put a sign on my room that says’:

You Bet Your Ass It Is Ibrar’s Room

Yes , yes. I know it was a little stupid and silly; but this is what makes us who we are.. 🙂

So this is what I did, the image on the right was digitally created by me last month (during my exams..:( ), and the ‘Bet you Ass’ one was done-yesterday.

Image

And here’s how they look when printed and glued to my door:

Image

I burned the edges to give it more of a ‘gothic’ look ^^ hehe

So now I ask

Is it Awesome?

And oops, I just remembered that I have to sponsor AnimeArtSunday on G+ today too (and if you draw anime/manga artwork and are on G+ then do tell me and I’ll feature your artwork on Every Sunday!  “Yay!”) …^^

[You Bet Your Ass This is the End of the post.. But there may be another post coming up l8r today…!]

PS: The dude on the right resembles me….alot.. the nose is abit different. ^^ though, my hair really is like that…
