John Lennon development two by Rmair John Lennon development two by Rmair
This is just a short development of a drawing i did of John Lennon... my art teacher says its derivative, unimaginative and boring.

I don't like my art teacher right now.

Nice brushwork!
Where did you get your brushes?

Your art teacher is probably just jealous :)

Cheers, I made them myself out of my own thumb prints, I've seen a few sets of finger print brushes of DA which look as though they where made with a lot more care and atention than mine so I would probably recomend looking them up. If I get round to it I'll upload mine =]

Your art teacher is either trying to inspire some emotion in order that you free your mind and become more creative (which would be quite clever), or he/she doesn't know what they're talking about!
I love this piece, it captures both the darkness within the memory of John Lennon, his unfortunate demise at the hands of someone trapped in darkness, and indeed the darkness that sometimes lurked within him and was expressed in a good part of his work. Very well done.

Your art teacher is probably like mine was - obsessed with modern art. This is a crazily inspirational piece.

Your art teacher sounds just as crazy as mine.
Don't listen to him -- this piece is brilliant.

Your art teacher is a moron.
This is brilliant, i though it was a photograph until i saw the fingerprint style markins at the bottom- which is a great touch :3

ehh i just took a picture of my finger print, it was created using some ink i think then i found a tutorial a wile back that showed you how to turn images into brushes in ps, its easy enough once you get the hang of it =]

(i looked at a different one which i cant find but this one explains it pretty clearly, or at least the bits i read did) hope you find it interesting.
