...for the first page of my new watercolor and sketchbook. I am torn between a few choices as of what to actually study and recreate of Manson's gallery so I come to making this thread. Please vote for your favorite Manson painting of the following and tell me which you'd like to see me rework or Study. I will post my finished piece in this thread and my own thread that already exists. If you have no idea of my work please look at this link,

I won't brag but I am very capable of studying artworks and have done many, includiong Edvard Munch's The Scream and Marilyn Manson's Experience is the Mistress of Fools.

Here are the choices and an attached poll to validate your wishes and choices of what I should render.

I don't mean to sound rude, but don't... As an artist the goal is to draw inspiration from from your influences, not create what is an essentially a carbon copy. The trick is to utilize the techniques or subject matter of something that interests you artistically and thus transform it in your mind based on how you interpret it.

I voted for "Do I have To Do Everything For You?" To me it's more meaningful and I think capturing that depth is a challenge. You can probably catapult your way unto an original work by you inspired by this one.

I think Anaclitism is the best of the works you're considering- and also a favorite of mine. I not an artist, but I know many who do exactly what you're talking about as a means to improve their skills. I can imagine it would be helpful, though it doesn't really work the same with writing. In either discipline I think even when you attempt a carbon copy, one's personal perspective, style, thematic inclinations and so forth always manage to seep in sooner or later. Synthesis is a beautiful thing.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing what you do with them- whichever one you pick.

That's why I labeled by thread as Study.

My philosophy is that good things come from studying paintings and other artworks. That's what I've done most of my time as an artist - observe. I'm the type of artist that you'd see drawing a charicature of someone at an amusement park, rather than someone who sells abstract original artworks in a gallery (not saying I don't do such works).

Most of my body of work is based upon studying famous works, capturing things by my eye and through photographs; think of the style of model portraits if you will. I capture things and study them to hone my skills and learn upon. Think of it as me capturing something in my own style and fascination.

I hope that made sense.

Besides, I do have my own original work.

Although I find 'Anaclitism' and 'Do I have To Do Everything For You?' to be the most interesting out of the four, they're painted in a more specific, expressive style, so if it's for the purpose of improving your skills and developing your own style I'd suggest working with 'Someone Should Put Hearts Over Her Eyes' or 'Faunadestia'.
Then out of these two I'd probably choose 'Someone Should Put Hearts Over Her Eyes', being a more realistic portrait it has more opportunities to be interpreted artistically than the already cartooned Mickey Mouse that has been re-created many times in the past.

I voted 'Someone Should Put Hearts Over Her Eyes', because... well Mary already said it for me- it's a more realistic portrait- and I love the way it's painted.
