Hi, this is an older work of mine trying to get into cubism. Any opinions ? Btw, sorry that I posted 2 threads one after another, but I really wanted to get some feedback on this too.

The shading and colors are very nice. I like the looseness as well.

Cubism huh? It's very interesting...kind of grows on you the more you stare at it. :wink:

You definitely have some skills :biggrin:

Thanks for the feedback :D
I tried to make a mixture between analytical cubism and synthetic cubism. Well, the analytical one might be a little fail, but whatever.
I used lighter colors in the background to kindof jump the main subject forwards

Well, not art college, but art highschool. I guess sometimes they might be showing us how stuff works in a way too academical way, but I can't say I dislike it .

Evidently cubism was created by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque and is considered one of the most influential visual styles of the early 20th century.

Just a little art history thrown out there!! Lol

Also considered the first "abstract" art style :wink:

High school art gets into this? That's awesome! That means my grandkids might learn some of that and can teach me about it.:biggrin: One of my grandsons is spending a lot of time drawing lately. I'm just starting to introduce him to the fun of shading.

Yea, and usually we don't do much at the normal subjects, though I guess that depends on how the teacher is.

I would like to take an art class sometime. I've lost so many of the skills I learned in high school.

Kalgaros , I'll tell you now, if you don't keep your skills fresh, they will diminish over time. :wink:
