You start up a sketchbook thread and begin posting your work for critique, and I offer you this:
Y'see back when I was 13 or so I really liked DBZ, was really bad at art, and had just discovered scanners and Photoshop.
Yes, this is a real thing I drew and colored. I even worked real hard on it, back then.
P.S. The most embarrassing part? Choosing the image categories and description in the 'Manage Attachments" window.
-My work can be found at my local directory thread.
I'll have to buy some batteries for my camera today and I'll take some pictures of sculpture the gallery was initially interested in and post it to the critique section of the website later tonight and you can judge me based on that; though I have that embarrassed feeling having seen how much greater the other sculptors on this site are.
I do hope I'm not coming across as some tryhard, speshul-snowflake with my themes though. I'm not trying to be forced or anything like that, but in all honesty, something like a woman bursting from an erect phallus whilst drowning in semen was something I genuinely considered to be "not that weird" haha
Dude, this is amazing.
You have no idea how much I worshipped Vegeta when I was a kid!You have all of my love.
Ok the post you made after Anids master piece ( ) is showing up now. I could not see it earlier.
so I'll reserve the sad cheerleader...BUT SHE MIGHT COME BACK IF NO JIZZING DONG WOMEN ARE FORTHCOMING!
That's a promise.

Then again, I think the perspective of the character is very impressive considering you were 13
@ the-eunja: Get it over with! You already admitted to doing it, and since you are with a bunch of artists I bet >90% can already visualize to greater or lesser extend what you are talking about!
...However, if you want to make excuses for not posting you could at least use the "respect for minors".
Remember that people like H.R. Geiger...Gieger...?... has cult status!
EDIT: Sorry, missed your post too :p Well, for all it's worth I do respect and admire your courage
Yeah sorry, I did reply to to somebody's earlier post but for some reason my reply was awaiting moderation, whereas the DBZ post went through straight away so it looked like I was ignoring some critique.
But thanks x

So I just took two raw photos of the sculpture I was last working on... I say last because I actually haven't touched it for 2 months and instead chose to leave uncovered in a corner of my room. The Sculpey has since become brittle and dirty, I've also knocked it over a few times which explains why some of detail has become squashed.
It looked a hell of a lot better before I abandonned her, as she at one point has both her antennae and lovely, big snails shell protruding from her back as well.
The reason I haven't touched it in a while is because half way through I realized that the wire I've used for the frame is far too thin and likely to crack should I attempt to bake it. That and I'm having problems getting her to sit up since attaching her head, which I did initially intent to resolve by baking steel ball bearings somewhere around her knees to balance her.
I'm considering just destroying it at this point as it's fallen into pretty disgusting condition and I'm pretty ashamed of the overall quality. Even so, I'm open to critique, so fire away.

I know she's rocking back, but the breasts are....way too high up. If you look at one shot of your image, it's like she's got dewlap neckboob.
Though honestly, I'm not sure this is the "jizzing dongs" people assumed?
Sometimes you should take a look about the site and the art before worrying about certain things?
Oh no guys, jizzing dongs is only a concept at the moment. It's something I want to sculpt soon once I've got a better grip on sculpting, armatures and balance.
This is only like my 4th attempt at sculpting, because I keep getting annoying and destroying them.
Jizzing dongs will definitely happen lol
I apologise for introducing the now oft-repeated adjective/phrase in this thread to the art discussion forum everyone!
Good luck to the OP, but if you really want more crits, there is a sculpture section on the forums that you would probably find handy.
This was last thing I made an attempt at. I thought everything was going pretty well, until I attempted to paint it. I quickly realized after that I was using the completely wrong paint for this, but by then it was too late. It's left a load of lumpy, dried pieces of paint all over it. After that I pretty much stuck it under my bed and ignored.
I'm not good at failing.
I got no clue about sculpting, but based on the photo the last one you posted is the one I like the most
You shouldn't see this one as fail. Just a bad choice of material, it still seems to have a good practice value. Being hard on yourself can be good for pacing and determination, but don't use it to bring yourself down!
You should take the sculpture out and then read the "fuck yeah" thread they have stored around here somewhere...
Read the parts about controversies.... and I gather he had some skills too!
Although... one thing that does baffle me.... people say sexual themes are often used for attention and shock value.
Nowadays, especially when half the times when you google something with a typo, you often get hit by a *few* NSFW images at the minimum, why are we so shocked by it and give it a time of the day?
Like OMG, an erect penis and someone is trying to be in your face with it, now *there's* something I've never seen before. Maybe it's guys that get shocked, because they don't quite realize how obnoxious and in your face they can be with that darn thing. At some point, you just get.. desensitized.
I get more shocked by and attentive to dicks not trying to get in your face, then those who do.
Watch that link people. It might be a one-off but I used to get these everytime I went on another forum (that I soon stopped because one eventually got through and they're keyloggers.)
Just a warning because the last thing I want is people having to go through the trouble I did to boot the damn thing back out again.
In other news, Damn I love that sculpture up there (the recent one) Reminds me of the kind that my mother collects (peculiar taste, but it's definitely something unique)
