And finally Kishi Torajirou because he draws a variety of different body shapes (chubbs, skinny, tall, short) in a way that is rare in manga. And all his girls look so touchable.

Oh I absolutely adore Schiele. My mother was looking to buy some artwork to decorate her house with recently, so I linked her to some of his work and to my surprise she loved him too. Now she has 3 prints in the living room.

I'm a really big fan of Yoshitaka Amano. He used to be the lead character designer for the final fantasy series and he illustrates these really detailed, romantically fantastical characters and settings.

damn, i feel like i ghostwrote this entire thread (minus a couple of the tumblr artists) a lot of these images are from some of my all-time favorite artists!

lately i've been really into vintage shoujo mangaka and their styles that inspire me to work harder on developing a distinct one of my own. also coming back into loving artists i used to cling to when i first started learning about art, particularly pre-raph/ impressionism and also more modern artists like audrey kawasaki, ryden, sorren, yoshitomo nara, pater sato, hikari shimoda and (pictured) liepke.

after a personal period of darkness and being really stagnant i forgot how much art actually makes me happy and inspired, and how much i missed studying and seeing it! i wish this site was a little faster with post frequency because you all have great taste

not surprising. you know you're not artistically gifted when you ctrl+v photoshopped pokemon into fine art paintings and then proceed to call it art. it's not even "mixing" anything, she literally just threw a transparent jigglypuff onto something that required tons of fucking skill and time. neither of these look good and i dont get why she added the random dog to the right of the shintaro kago tracing.

this reminds me of when i was in high school. two girls i really admired drew anime really really well, and i looked up to them and learned to draw cause of it, but then they sent me holiday cards one year with traced anime i recognized. it turns out all their art was traced. also despite what others believe, tracing is bad cause it gives you the final product without you understanding how you got there.

It could be dangerous to let me near such paintings, i'm not sure i would be able to resist the temptation to brake off some of that "excess" paint when no one is looking. Its a technique that distracts the viewer from the subject of the painting itself - technique becomes the subject.

I love paintings of Judith beheading Holofernes. picrel a fav

Far more based version IMO. Judith isn't depicted as some dainty lady but rather a badass.

Ahhh I love Artemisia Gentileschi's version too. It's so nice to see such amazing work from female Baroque painters. But one thing I really like about Caravaggio's rendition is the little old lady watching it all and looking unfazed as fuck kek.

Look at the whites of her eyes, she’s terrified

Okay maybe 'unfazed' was the wrong word to use here but I think she's sporting a 'take that, you little shit' kind of look.

Yes!!! I love Gentileschi's renditions of Caravaggio's beheading of Holofernes by Judith. She actually made two versions. Obvious difference is the colour of the dress but why I like this one more is that she's slightly more expressive. See eyebrows. I love the disgust on her face.

Another popular rendition of a beheading by a woman is John the Baptists head as a reward for Salomés dance for King Herod. Picrelated, but other versions I really like are Gustave Moreau's and Aubrey Beardsley's

I had the Aubrey Beardsley Salome hanging up as a framed print for a long time. I actually thought about getting it as a tattoo.

The play/opera of Salome I found very captivating; I don't even really know how to express my feelings about it.

Ou! What made you consider getting it as a tattoo and why did you not end up not getting it?

Didn't know there was an opera, only knew of Oscar Wilde's book, which is apparently the inspiration behind it. Not that i've read the book either. You?

It makes sense to me that Salome has been a muse to many throughout time. I love the idea of a woman causing great violence using her own sexuality as a weapon - in like a Salome way not a Helen of Troy way

girl fucking same. Some of my favs include The Tooth Drawer, The Incredulity of St. Thomas and Medusa (for obvi reasons). Secretly my absolute fav is Bacchus bc of the stories behind it, in that he'd pick up cute homeless boys, get them drunk, paint them, pay them and fuck them. Ouuuu if those flushed cheeks and drunked gaze could speak.

Hon mention, Boy Bitten by a Lizard, who also prob got prostituted by Caravaggio

Have you been, or would you like to go the Ufizzi??

I just didn't have a lot of money at that time and eventually the desire to have it passed. Hmm, and also I read a comic adaptation of the opera by P Craig Russell (who does a lot of very faithful adaptions of operas to comics/graphic novels) and that maybe surpassed the Beardsley Salome as my internal 'ideal' seen image of Salome.

The story in the play/opera/adaptation is really incredible. To me it is sublime and redemptive. I tried to look into criticism of it but I got so frustrated with most of the takes I didn't get very far. Salome is desired by her stepfather; pursued by a man she has no interest in; feared and oppressed by her mother and the man she actually loves rejects her because of her station and ancestry, and maybe even rejects all desire. She bundles all of this up and does something so transgressive that it overturns all of it. She fulfils her own desire and is annihilated.

Yes! I've read all about the crazy shenanigans Caravaggio would get up to, like allegedly killing a man over a tennis match or being friends with a suspicious amount of prostitutes. He was such a colourful character, it makes his paintings so much more interesting once you know their backstory.

No unfortunately, but I'd love to go one day.

How does one get started?! I've seen the odd doc on youtube about him but if you've got any books or even wikipedia type pages about him that you remember being an interesting read pls share!

I keep being advertised to check out that american, Rocky Roggiero's webinars and I'm signed up for his email subscriptions but have never actually attended one. Know of him?

Ramón Casas, 1907. She was a Barcelona flower girl and he an artist from a rich family. They ended up married. I love how he depicts her here.

I love Tomm Moore's movies and his art style. It's so chilly yet comfy? It just reminds me of being at a cloudy beach while it's raining and there is a forest near by and all of the greenery pops out, almost like neon. The fact that his art style provokes such a deep feeling is what makes me such an avid fan of his work.
