Shit I Need to Finish by Rahll Shit I Need to Finish by Rahll
Having a really shitty day, and was going through some of the paintings that I've left halfway done. Here are a few, in various levels of finish, all cropped pretty tight. Some are super rough and in layout still. Maybe I'll get around to them soon, I have other ideas as well.

Anyway, today ended a chapter in my life, and now its time to focus on my art. Here's to the rest of the year and hopefully clearer skies.

To scraps soon.

Yeah, I just need to sink another couple hours into it. It's been unfinished for so long, though, it's hard for me to really maintain a focus on it.

Grats on the new chapter! Sometimes all we need is a fresh start. Whatever you left behind, I hope it doesn't shadow you for too long. Good luck!

As for the artwork. Wow, as always. Even your scraps kick ass. Mmmmm, Thane <3

The second one, the first one is not good (even if you finish it) and the last two are good but not as great as the second. Actually finish the second and the third :p

For one, The first painting is WIP and you haven't even seen the full piece. For another, "Critique" is kindly telling someone how they can improve something, not rudely spouting that it's bad and will never be good. Furthermore, The opinion of a "16 year-old amateur graphic/ web designer" who does 90% photo manipulations doesn't hold much weight against a well known, experienced artist. And lastly, don't tell people what to do, ever; make kind suggestions, don't order him to finish the second and third.

Firstly i expressed my opinion, it will be good artistically but not of my taste, maybe i misphrased it a bit. Secondly my graphic design artwork is not uploaded on devintart. Thirdly Rahll is not a well known artist, he is a well known artist on deviantart and on internet. Lastly i just expressed my opinion, didn't order anybody...

If your opinion is rude (and it was), you should keep it to yourself. Don't say art is, "not good" just because it doesn't suit your taste, don't comment at all on things that don't suit your taste. And regardless of where your graphic design is, you're still out of line to be criticizing (which is different from critiquing) experienced artists. And, in addition to his online popularity, Rahll has done plenty of professional work for motion pictures and other things; he may not be a household name, but he is not an unknown. And, "Actually finish the second and the third" sure sounds like an order to me.

Yes, that is phrased much better. You should consider your words more carefully, especially if English is not your native language. People are going to get angry over rude comments, whether you intended to be rude or not.

...do you honestly have any conception of how most people start a digital work like Rahll does? That first picture is a really good base for a painting. Until you can actually give a decent critique rather than insult someone, please shut up.

Well if it was really base painting then he should have said so. The title says shit i need to finish, not shit i just started...

:iconhellionangel:
HellionAngel Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2010
'Shit I need to finish' implies it is not done, i.e. in can be in SEVERAL stages of completion, but not actually finished. Perhaps you need to go back to grade school English classes and learn a few things about phrasing. Especially when it comes to being tactful. You certainly wouldn't like it if I traipsed through your deviations and did the same.
If you didn't like it, SAY so, don't basically tell someone that what they do is worthless.

Certainly better phrasing than the first time.
Just, next time, think about what you say first? Otherwise it's always going to be damage control and insults, intended or not, always leave a mark.

You may want to learn how to phrase things. Saying "The first one is not good, even if you finish it," is pretty rude and disrespectful.
