Hello, I wanted some advice in how to sell a sketch from Luis Guillermo Vallejo Vargas, a somewhat known Colombian artist, we have his permition to sell it so I wanted to know where I could sell it, how much it might retail for and stuff like that
A lot of artists nowadays don't copy a real object or person, they copy and paste their "reference" next to their drawing in photoshop. A lot of them just trace over the image they want, then there's just straight out photobashing.
There are people out there that have drawn for years as a professional that I can spot major anatomy issues from, later learning that they heavily used "references", the parts they referenced was more or less accurate but the parts they had to add themselves are full of issues.
I get using a reference for accurate anatomy or complex body movement and interaction they should be used to understand better but I don't get the point of people that just lift the picture completely and then slightly alter the image to make it their own work.
It explains their major flaws and inconsistencies, their actual skill level is much lower than it first seemed and are using crutches, the flawed areas are their real abilities.
O hallowed lord, O Master Zhu. Guide us, thine flock, from this board of sin; bear our weakness, and in doing, cleanse us of our misconceptions. Thy teachings be light; thy voice, reason. Reveal and repel the imps, O lord; the demons that would muddy our path with thoughts of 'talent,' 'neuroplasticity,' and other such deceptions, for they seek to consume us.
Behold, these crustacean beings of the Bucket Down Under, envy incarnate, they fashion lies to ensare the faithless, to cast them into the great Bucket and swallow them whole. They eat the lost, and in doing, convert them unto their fold. The fate all those who defy your word face, the sole destination for all followers of the false God of talent.
We are your old, your talentless, your un-Japs; your faithful, your eager, your potential. O Grandmaster, teacher, Lord, deliver us unto gains, employment, and self-satisfaction. Eternal praise be yours, as all and more is your due for eternal salvation. Amen.
Join, you devoted, in appreciation of his gifts. Thank you Feng Zhu. I'm going to make it.
