The Finals are coming... the Finals are coming...!


This week's Artist of the Week! goes to Pixeltuner over on conceptart.org!
The sheer determination of this artist on top of tip-top skill I think is what makes this artist amazing. They have been updating their sketchbook (see above) almost on a daily basis. If you look at their overall volume of work it's almost unbelievable. They participate in some capacity on every Character of the Week contest that conceptart.org has had that I can see. They just keep trucking the art out over and over on a daily basis. Just keep it up Pixeltuner, your art and speed are equally impressive...

This time we're going to do something a little different, and probably not nearly as interesting... but I'm going to show everyone my research paper on Carl Gutherz.



Carl Gutherz’ Piece:
Light of the Incarnation

Carl Gutherz’ Piece:

Light of the Incarnation

             There are many modern artists that can be compared to the gothic and Neo-Classicism movement. Many more still, which can be compared to the Masters of Old. We are focusing though, on a more distinct and less recognized artist. This artist is one who was successful not only in America, but actually throughout the world as a whole. Carl Gutherz, himself, was an artist that contributed to the art scene locally in Memphis, Tennessee, with his piece entitled Light of the Incarnation[1] which was a masterpiece in both terms of technique and skill, and it’s appearance can be directly related to the historic pieces of Cimabue, Duccio, and even Bouguereau.      
            Carl Gutherz was born in Schoeftland, Switzerland in 1844.[2] Very soon after his birth, though, his family moved over to the United States of America first in Ohio, and then when the Civil War started, they ended up in Memphis, Tennessee. Shortly after the Civil War, he was discovered as an artist and was quickly whisked away to Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, with further studies in Munich, Brussels, and even Rome.[3]
            He was even a teacher of note during this time as he began his teaching career in St. Louis. Even going so far as to help establish the St. Louis School and Museum of Fine Arts.[4] He helped to inspire the American mural movement, as well as to help with the ceiling in the Library of Congress.
            All this time he kept going back and forth between Memphis, Tennessee, and St. Paul Minnesota, trekking on in his attempt to recreate the art of the past. He frequented Memphis’ festivals such as the annual (from 1873 - 81) Memphis Mardi Gras parade, in which he created costumes, floats, and printed material.[5] During the start of the next century he was actually commissioned by E.A. Neely to contribute to the Memphis skyline and art world by way of the beginning designs for an art museum.[6] Initially, the design began on paper as a multitude of sketches and ideas, including designs for gardens, pavilions, etc. The task fell upon Mr. Gutherz to contribute to the art world in Memphis in a way not yet realized, as Memphis, Tennessee had not even been a blip previously on the art world’s radar. The design had been an ode to the previous art worlds’ masters. While this is not what we see today in our current Brook’s Museum of Art, it laid the groundwork for the future of art in Memphis. It is here that Gutherz’ piece Light of the Incarnation hangs today.           
           The piece itself hangs at an intimidating one hundred and sixteen inches tall by seventy-seven inches wide. This specific piece was created in oil on canvas. To stand in front of this piece is intimidating as it literally takes up your entire vision. While standing in front of the piece you are confronted with a contemplation of religion and the returning of Christ. The figures presented within it are angels as well as putti. The viewer can plainly tell each of them by the wings and halo as well as the child-like figures that are shown within the piece.
            The color is a sort-of muted yellow and oranges that hint at the coming of dawn and the rejoicing of angelic beings as their savior returns. In the distance you get a hint of depth as the color itself blends into this almost burnt gray with rays of yellow hinting at the breaking of dawn in the distance. Overall the dominant color scheme of this piece is a very warm tone with inviting hints of opposite color to draw your eye. The color scheme for this piece is rather simplistic and consists primarily of a warm palette.           
            There is dramatic chiaroscuro on some of the figures presented as well as very delicate light shifts on the varying floral patterns and falling cloth. This would hint at the overall mastery of light that the artist themselves can exemplify while pursuing this piece. Gutherz himself, during the creation of this piece actually used smaller “[…] cartoons, [which were then] used to transfer the images to the canvas. These were based upon the detail sketches that were enlarged to full scale by squaring.”[7] By using this technique he was able to quickly and accurately get the characters onto the canvas and then proceed directly onto the painting. It was a way for him to not only save time, but get his idea onto the finalized canvas right-away.            The composition of the piece closely follows the ‘rule of thirds’ in that the eye doesn’t focus on the center of the image itself. The ‘landscape of angels’ leads the eyes towards the light that is emitting from the sunrays. Overall the composition is a broken type that doesn’t bore the viewer in any capacity because of the constant change in line work. If you try and follow the contours of each figure presented, the eye follows each dip and sway individually without directly being influenced by any of the specific angels within. 
         Light of the Incarnation is an almost direct ode to the religious paintings that were made so famous by the masters of old such as Cimabue, Duccio, and Bouguereau. Each seem to have a relation to this piece by their use of not only the thick halos that are presented within this piece, but each has used a similar composition in a piece. The real difference you see here that the others don’t seem to show as prevalent is in the angelic wings. It wasn’t as widely used in the times of yore.           
          Cimabue himself seemed to use similar halos in his angels with the piece Maestra[8]. If you compare the two, they both use highly regarded religious overtones as well as the use of the halos and winged angels. They use very dramatically different compositions in each as this piece seemed to have a more ‘alter-piece’ appearance to it whereas Gutherz’ piece is more of a contemplation and visual representation of religious texts themselves. The complete lack of perspective in Cimabue’s piece as well shows the very differing times that these two pieces were made. While they seem to have a very complete roster of heavenly beings, Gutherz’ piece has them in a more interactive setting where they appear to be in conversation all together perhaps contemplating the Incarnation. Whereas Cimabue’s piece seems to have them more in an individual setting and not really interacting with the audience that perceives them or each other. By comparison, you feel more disconnected with Cimabue’s than with Gutherz’.               
           Duccio’s Entry into Jerusalem[9] by comparison, does show the complete roster of heavenly beings again, including Christ himself in a more interactive way where they appear to be in complete conversation with each other. What it lacks again is the example of perspective. It merely has each character on it’s own plane rather than in a complete landscape. There is a complete lack of depth here because of this. It has a similar ‘up-down’ triangular pattern on the character groups represented so it’s easy to see the comparable composition that appears in Gutherz’ Light of the Incarnation. Perhaps he studied this piece to get a feel for his composition when he was first designing the piece.
            Finally the piece can be compared to Bougerau’s Pieta[10] in that it uses that already familiar disc-halo that we’ve seen time and time again previously. The main difference here from the previously stated pieces as that, like Gutherz’ piece, it uses the different types of ‘non-haloed’ beings and haloed to great effect. Of course it’s easy to recognize that this piece doesn’t halo each angel as well as the Christ figure, but we can still recognize that it uses a combination of the two. Also, it uses similar chiaroscuro techniques here that we see in Gutherz’. It’s very apparent that each artist has a strong focus on proper lighting, but as well as anatomical accuracy. Each can show the very gentle shades that appear in natural human flesh as well as the varying folds that are in the cloth draped around each figure. Each artist obviously studied the human body very extensively to show their expertise in painting the human body.
           It is very evident that Carl Gutherz was an artist of international renown. Gutherz added his voice to an otherwise unknown artist group growing in Memphis, Tennessee, with his piece Light of the Incarnation which should be recognized for both it’s complete expertise of technical skill and it’s relation to the previous masters Cimabue, Duccio, and Bouguereau. Gutherz came from a relatively new area to the art world that was just beginning to grow out of the ashes of the Civil War. He was internationally trained and helped to root Memphis, Tennessee as an art Mecca to the rest of the world in the future. Hopefully artists the world over will continue to study his work and keep his spirit alive as a master painter.

 A little different than normal, but I just wanted to show things about my school work too...

School is over in two-weeks... oh I can't wait. I've been powering down the school work as much as I can and trying desperately to cling to some personal work too.

Well, now I suppose I'll give ya what you came for... the art!

Digital Week!


This video is so much more impressive when you've seen the original movie that it's pulled from. Everyone should watch Natural City... It's actually on Netflix. It's the Japanese answer to Bladerunner. I'm sure people will end up smacking me around for this, but I think it's better than Bladerunner in the fact that it actually has excellent character progression that I kind of think Bladerunner lacks. The overall story is very similiar, but the visual effects and overall story seem much more high-reaching than Bladerunner was. All I can say is... watch the movie, it's amazing!


This week's Artist of the Week! goes to agnidevi over on deviantart.com!
While this artist doesn't neccessarily have a huge variance of art, the art that is being presented is amazingly well done. Their style is smooth and interesting. I hope that they continue to draw and paint like crazy. I'll be watching.
Just working more and more on finals. This week is vacation though, so I'll power down a ton of studies during this. Plus it's just plain fun. Here's the art...

Digital Painting ... WHAT?!


It's been a rough few days... FULL OF WORK!!

I've been powering down all sorts of stuff, such as school work and personal work.
I've actually done a few drawings and also gotten pretty heavy into digital painting (I have to do this on my own as they don't really teach this stuff at school).

I AM X finally came out with a new album... I'd actually really like all of their albums. It's sort of this industrial, trip-hop vibe going through the whole thing.

School has been hectic and hopefully I'll come out of it unscathed, even though I don't see myself stopping any of this anytime soon.

There's a show going on this weekend (The Memphis College of Art Holiday Bazaar). I kind of wish I'd put some work in it, as I think my work would fit well. The unfortunate thing that I run into, is the price gauge. I never know really what to gauge my work as for prices. Maybe next year, yeah?


This week's Artist of the Week! goes to Simon Loche over on cghub.com!
This artist actually has been an inspiration to my work recently. They seem to have a very stylistic approach to the way they do their work, and I'm trying to imitate the style. I absolutely love it! Not only that, but they have an extreme variance in their work overall, going from childish paintings, all the way to complex and extremely adult themed pieces. Every piece seems unique and shows the skill overall of this artist. I would say that they use both traditional and digital in their pieces, but I can't be completely certain. Either way, amazing work, keep it up!
 Anyway... time for this post and then MORE WORK!!

Digital Paints and a Portrait... HURRAY!


Here we go again... more and more art over and over!


This week's Artist of the Week! goes to Ben_Olson over on concept art!
Not only is this artist impressive with their varying style, but they have a great tendancy to delve into the realms of strange and weird. His art tends to have this almost watercolor look to it with the stylistic flourishes of his digital paints. Not only that, but he seems to have good control over his pencil work as well... if you look on the last page of his sketchbook (posted above), he has some gestural drawings as well from life. This guy seems to have a great grasp on it all. Keep it up!
So this week has been filled with work... mainly really delving into digital painting hard! You'll see some of the experiments that I've been doing below. Maybe some critiques would do me well.

Life Drawing at MCA has come to a close yesterday, so unfortunately I'll have to start just doing my own drawings on the side (even though I do that already).

Either way, I'll probably just go ahead and dive right into the post as I have a ton of work to get done.

Here we go...

Yay, new animation and MORE!

This week's Artist of the Week! goes to MatejaPetkovik over on concept art!
If you actually look at the overall work that he's put into his work from beginning to end... it seems completely consistent in both skill and expertise. This guy seems pretty much AAA in my opinion. Not only that, but he seems equally focused on traditional and digital at the same time! Keep up the good work!!!
Hahaha, so apparently during the whole Haunted House thing that happened before... a bunch of the 'scarers' got beat up randomly. Like the people that were in the House got so freaked out by them that they actually punched out of reflex. Either they did an awesome job at the Haunted House, or the people that went are extremely violent.

Let's see... so I've been experimenting with new things involving art, mainly just digital painting now that I've found a good brush to use. You can see below... OH! And I finished my animation mid-term... that will also be below.

Here's probably what you've all come for, the art:

Breaks are waayyy too fast

Man, that break came and went soooo fast. It feels like it wasn't even really a break from school at all, more like an extra weekend.


Awesomely enough, that video was done by Todd McFarlane! So that probably helps in the awesome-factor of that video!

This week, Artist of the Week! goes to: Loish from deviantart.com
This girl has some seriously awesome style! Not to mention her volume of work really speaks for itself. Just look at her watercolor type painting, she somehow does all this in photoshop. Overall her work is just really entertaining and expressive. And then if you get a chance, check out her animations, specifically the Open Question Terror.
I wish I had more to say this update really... just been working a little less than normal during the break. But regardless, I have some updates:
The haunted house for MCA is this weekend, so make sure you check that out!
Class has been going pretty well, working day in, day out... got a big chunk of my animation done for this next project. I'll have to post that for sure when it's done.

Anyway, here's that art (mostly WIPs this week unfortunately):

Notes: A work in progress for the character of the week on conceptart.org Unfortunately, it passed, but I still want to finish this idea. It wasn't going to fit in the brief anyway, because the brief stated it that it had to be ultra-realistic and something that could actually happen.

My thoughts were this:
Nikolai Tesla, through all his testing, has decided that he needed to make a practical addition to the military. So, through thorough testing, he decided to apply his Tesla coil and the thought of electrical power towards making an undead army to contribute to state defense. What better way than to test two things with one test. Apply the Tesla coil to a cadaver, and hopefully (with luck) the electrical pulse will re-power the cadaver to create an infinite amount of soldiers. This was his experiment...
