I've recently, and very suddenly lost interest for devianart, not sure how long it will last but for now I will manage this group as best I can by checking in at least once a day (and not 20x times like I did before )
Before we didn't allow fan-art at all. But after seeing some amazing art that definitively aren't mainstream, but still contain reference to pop-culture - me and simonpark81 have decided to let some fan-art in the group.
I know this can be very confusing when it comes to what will be accepted or not, but I will try to explain it;
Direct portraits will not be accepted
caricature and other "mocking" of pop-culture will not be accepted
and here comes the twist
The medium / perspective is very well done in a "non-mainstream" way and therefore outweighing the pop-culture reference. This will be a judgement call on each sub
|the art of others that i admire, either for their level of skill or for their tenacity and passion. anyone getting in here is amazing as far as i am concerned.|
Simon Park has been an avid drawer his whole life, striving to create a style that is unique, provocative and powerful.
Influenced by modern fantasy films, comics, orchestral scores and rennaissance art, he uses cross-hatching and vivid colours, With a heavy emphasis on dynamics, scale, tiny details and down to earth characters to drive forward the old adage that every picture tells a thousand words.
He does not usually intend a specific story during the creation process, but rather builds an elaborate snapshot for the viewer to imagine a story for.
Many of his works are intended to open dialogue; to embrace or question ideals and ideologies of modern society, and look upon them with new eyes.
He relishes in hiding in plain sight details which the viewer can find upon a second or third viewing.
His time not spent with his partner and their children, or curled up somewhere drawing, is spent hiking, mountain climbing and meditating.
