I realy love Brom too. Though I think my work has a resemblance more because we both are influenced by Frazetta,goth and art nouveau.
When I started this peice I wasnt thinking of Brom at all ,but when I had sculpted just the nude bust she had that stiff neck and muscular look and I thought hey I channelled Brom! So when I dressed her I said eh whatever and I went with it. Usualy Im very particular about being influenced by other artists since I dont want my work to look obviously derivative. I probably should have went ahead and develped following Brom which would have probably gotten my work popular far quicker ,but then I probably wouldnt have discovered so much of my own quirky nuances. Sorry I will talk an ear off on occasion
No problem! It is great to hear about the creative process. I agree its true that sometimes popularity can come from riding the coat tails of another artist, but I am glad you chose to develop your own unique style. It is really awesome
I look at tons of art in all media so, it influences and inspires me. Probably fragments of what Ive seen just merge with me and float up from my subconcsious.
I just havent chosen one or 2 hero artists to follow or assimilate. Ive been thinking about it alot lately though ,but how to choose who? I think Id end up wanting to emulate everybody whos work I love!
me too. I really feel that Im hitting a good place with my work and Im eager to see what Im realy capable of ya know! The night queen's dress is giving me the art terrors. So instead of pullign my hair out over it Im postign old images and avoiding work!
