New Learning Thread Incoming! 🧵

When talking about Lighting + Values for #splash #art that means the lighting design and the structure of the full range of light-to-dark tones in an illustration. We're going to look at alot of grayscale today.
#Splash #art style is rooted in cinematic believability, that means literally studying lighting design and value structire from life, film and media. The goal is to achieve a potent sense of light and atmosphere with a strong mood and tone.
Gandalf is here to show you some of the varieties of light sources we can observe and use ourselves. Exaggerate, experiment, mix and match to find the best fit for your exciting, emotional moment. Keep hierarchy in mind so that lights compliment one another rather than compete.

Learning stuff incoming! 🧵

Detail Frequency, the amount of detail packed into an area of an image, is important to a highly rendered #splash #art. The goal is balancing high intensity and areas of rest to focus attention. Here are some heat maps I made to illustrate this.
Splash art aims for 'cinematic believability', and controlling detail frequency is one way to get there - consider the illustration a camera lens, use ideas like depth of field to keep some areas blurred and others in focus.

More about camera lenses:
With that basic structure in mind, I think it's easy to observe in splash art style how much detail frequency and material contrast is invested into the focal areas - usually around the champion's head and source of power - in this example, Graves's portrait and his gun.

Luboš Plný is a Czech painter and conceptual artist, usually classified as a creator of art brut ("raw art" or "rough art"), a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture.
Plný is fascinated by medical iconography. An expert in the mysteries of anatomy, he devotes himself – when not drawing – to all sorts of performances where he confronts the limits of pain, which he experiences as an act of purification, transforming suffering into artistic work.
He incorporates organic materials, photographs from 19th century atlases, pictures of anatomical wax models, and clippings of models from fashion magazines in his work. These images form the foundation for his graphical compositions.

the witch remembers

i never made it my business
to break hearts
collecting bits and pieces
of those broken puzzles
as my prize
although i will confess
that in devotion to my craft
i used the foolishness of men
to good advantage
in a brutal world
where women were enslaved
i forswore those chains
in favor of dark magick
it doomed me
to a life alone

but better freedom
in its cold austerity
than the choking warmth
of being owned as property
now sitting
ancient and untouched by man
for many years
i cast my memory backward
carefully re-stepping every crooked mile
of my journey
reexamining my choices
while i fondle fingerbones
collected from dead lovers

#RomanSiteSaturday - The Pantheon🏛️

(1/8) Located in #Rome, Italy, the Pantheon is arguably the best surviving example of Imperial #Roman architecture. Richly decorated with Corinthian columns and a variety of coloured marble, it is truly a remarkable site.

#History #Classics
(2/8) Originally constructed during the reign of the emperor Augustus under the patronage of Marcus Agrippa, the current temple is actually a reconstruction undertaken by Trajan and Hadrian following an earthquake. Finished in 126CE, the original inscription was retained:

"M[arcus] Agrippa L[ucii] f[ilius] co[n]s[ul] tertium fecit"

"Marcus Agrippa, son of Lucius, made [this building] when consul for the third time."

salix babylonica

in this glorious soulsearing always fatal
business of living i am the willow
always weeping
shrouded in my veil of yellowgreen
never completely vertical but curved
i am an ogee in a country of the upright
clothed in the motheaten mantle of honesty
infected with the poison of deceit
they do not deceive me with their smiles
stolen from snakes
i have my own deceits one of which
is discreet observance
from behind the veil of my branches
my waterfall of tears

the scourge of love

fog may creep in on little cat feet
but not love
no domesticated catling
love roars in
a lion in winter or summer or spring
and don't forget fall
(because that's what you do)
ferocious tawny hot
flashing its fangs
unsheathing its claws
equipped with a whip
a stolen gift
from the last lion tamer vanquished
love swings the cat without remorse
nine tails spangled with elegant stars
all biting deeply and decadently
striping your soul in delicious designs
heating your blood to a furious boil

Friction Field

The wind, on this blue night,
is howling like a banshee,
sad voices carried on it.
It's the kind of night
when all your sorrows
come back to haunt you.
The electricity in the air
is a palpable thing,
an element so strong
your skin prickles
with the unrelenting
friction of those atoms.

I feel you especially.
Your presence swirls
in those atoms,
rubbing relentlessly
across my skin,
across my soul.
I won’t sleep tonight,
not as long as that wind persists.
I’ll lie in bed like a prisoner in a cell.
And carried by that wind,
your electrical arms embrace me.

#RomanSiteSaturday - The Temple of Garni 🏛️

(1/7) The Temple Garni is situated in the village of Garni in #Armenia, and stands as the only Greco-Roman temple in the nation. It sits on a cliff edge by the Azat River and the Gegham mountains.

#Classics #Archaeology #History
(2/7) Constructed in the 1st century CE, it was most likely built under the Armenian king Tiridates I as a temple of Mihr, the Armenian sun god. Supported and crowned as king by the Roman Emperor Nero, it is thought Tiridates adopted Mihr as his patron deity and protector.
(3/7) Stylistically, the temple is a blend of Ancient Greek architecture and local Armenian influences. Decorated with Ionic columns, it is constructed with local grey basalt and without mortar, instead being held together with iron clamps. It also features floral friezes.

Collectors: It's not just about status or money, it's about supporting artists who have invested years into developing their craft. Artists have been overlooked for far too long, yet continue to pour into what they are passionate about. Artists make our world a much better place.
Being an art #collector, whether in #cryptoart, #nft's, traditional #art, or many other art forms - it must primarily stem from a love for beauty, skill, creativity, nature, meaning, and thinking. Great art makes us appreciate, connect, aspire, reflect, and adjust perspectives.
As collectors, we help to recognize these talents in original artwork. Collecting from underrated, undervalued, underappreciated, unknown #artists who display stunning aptitudes for creating is a joy and a privilege, as it communicates to artists that they are valued and seen.
