50 Shades of Omega by BloodhoundOmega 50 Shades of Omega by BloodhoundOmega
I finally finished this little project that I had started somewhen during the end of 2011. It lay dorment till several weeks ago and I finally crunched through it during the entire December.

A whole while ago I had applied to join a certain project and was declined with the comment that "my art style wouldn't fit the entire thing". I checked their homepage and found a few pieces that were what I'd call semi-reliastic to realistice style, which is - I guess - what you could call my main field of expertise. I was rather taken aback by this as I contacted these folks again, stating that I could adapt to many different styles. I never heard back from them again.

I guess this hurt me more than I wanted to admit and I started this little thing mainly as a proof to myself that I was capable of more than just ONE style.

Those turned out to be all black and white because otherwise I probably would have lacked the consistency to finish them. ;) All in all I am rather proud I brought this to an end. Some of those were clearly drawn in already existing and (famous) styles, others might be indirectly influenced or are drawn in certain art styles and again others are what I'd say "my styles".

Anyway, this turned out to be another case of tl;dr so I'm gonna leave you now. ^^

This is an EPIC example of multiple stylizations for a single character. You have more than proven yourself in my opinion, but the real question is whether or not you feel that you accomplished what you set out to do. Sometimes our greatest enemy in life and in art is ourselves, and conquering that enemy can be our biggest challenge. I learned a long time ago that the things people say can only bother me if I LET it bother me, and if it does bother me...then I have to ask myself whether or not they have a point.

Well, I cannot say their reaction did not bother me at all, but I was able to shrug it off without falling into a fitbit of ragequitting the internet. *laughs* I am trying to grow constantly and develope further, as an artist as well as a human being. One usually is easier to achieve than the other, but I keep on trying. ;)

Oh my God Bloodi. =p
This is BEYOND epic. I must have stared at this for minutes on end studying every single little panel. I recognize a lot of the styles and LOVE IT ALL! I LOVE love love that very last panel ont he bottom right, I cant get that abstract. Those idiots you tried contacting dont know what good art is, apparently. <3
Now myself, I CANT do this, im to stuck in what I normally do, and am trying really hard in my off time to broaden my horizons a bit, lol.
When I saw the Russian jungle book style I squeed happily, lol. (At least I think thats the style ya were going for, I could be wrong. ^^; lol)
Good job!
I may have to try this with good ol Tracker at some point. :)

I think this was comparably "easy" for me, because I spent my early years "cyopying" from photos, illustrations, screenshots and what nots. I spent so much time end effort drawing like "Lion King" or "The last unicorn" or anything else that I adored. I sucked this in like a sponge, but only bits of each really stuck with me and merged into what eventually became "my" style... and still becomes. I do hope after all I am not done in my development. *g*

I had such an abudnance of movies, series, games and artists to inspire me... I think all those made this here possible. Of course I still do use certain styles more frequently, but I don't like to limit myself. Neither in matters of content, nor of style. :)

Very nice! I should really practice more styles like that.. ive been wanting to for forever, im just scared to be one of those called a 'style copier' as childish as that may sound, but it probably would help improve and make even more unique, my own style. I dunno, after that harsh beginning of 2001 I just stuck with my own style growing and improving without any real influence. (Now that im in art school thats totally kicking my ass, hah, I need influence!)

But your style is definitely distinct and beautiful. Every time you upload something I stare at it in awe. =p

Im definitely taking this to heart and hopefully something comes out of it for me in future! Thanks for being an inspiration. <3

I understand your fear. My memory reaches long back... I remember certain things and I must say I am "proud" of the way you have gone till then. I might have no right to be so, but I currently lack words to explain it better.

I cannot give you much advise, but one would be... if you experiment for a single piece, maybe state clearly it's a hommage to another artist. Admit you're inspired by them and that you wanted to try out certain aspects for your art with this piece. With me only certain aspects of other people's art style get stuck. Sometimes it's the way I draw fur or muzzles or paws, sometimes it's the way I make lineart, but all these are always in a state of change. I modify, I apply what I already can with what's new and try to blend it. Make good art! Play... Allow yourself to experiment once in a while. Sure there will always be folks pointing there fingers at you but there is NO way pleasing EVERYBODY. Don't even try. It's unhealthy. I know that...
Just be open, honest and kind and allow your curiosity to unfold. :)

Whoever they are, they don't know what they're missing. This is really quite amazing. I don't know if I'd be capable of so many different styles (I'm not too good at realistic OR zany)

The sock puppet is my favourite :meow:
QuebecoisWolf Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2012
The one in the middle in the 9th row is probably the best one.
