This is practice, I have a lot of practice I need to make up. Haven't arted in many many years, and now I'm exploring what I can do with a tablet. Turns out way more than without one, because it speeds everything up (and makes it look nicer).
More furfag shit is in my future. And lewds.

I made this over the course of a few weeks, but i made sure to only work on it when I was high as a kite, drunk, or on any other sort of drugs, just as long as I wasn't sober.

I'm guessing we don't have a photography board, so this seems like the appropriate place to post. I've always preferred drawing and still spend most of my time doing that, but I also have a side passion for taking pictures. I went looking through my gallery and saw some I really like, so I thought I would share some and hopefully see some from you guys too.

Thanks, but I feel we're about the same. It's a lot more depressive in person, but you get used to the darkness. I was born in Lapland and grew up there so southern Finland isn't really that bad compared to it.

I get you, man. I started studying (again) last year and have been at work for a year now and been pretty much too busy to go shooting, but I try to squeeze it in there. And I bet England isn't the best place for photographing, Finnish winter in the south is pretty much the same thing with overcast pretty much the whole 5 hours there is light outside, though when it gets really cold the skies usually clear up.

I have been making some stuff I call psychedelic/surreal pornography. Some of it is quite NSFW, but I'd like to think it's art. Would people be ok with me posting the more hardcore stuff?
More to the point I'd like to see what other stuff people have been making that is somewhat pornographic.

is a website that uses an algorithm to put your choice of image (A) in the style of image (B)

In this picture I used an anime girl for (A) and a dollar bill for (B)

FAQ:
>Does it cost money?
Not unless you want your image done in 15 mins or less. It =IS= free but takes approx. 5 hours due to the large amount of people using the service for free. There is also a watermark when you are done, but i shooped it out of pic related.

>Will this replace artists in the future?
Not even close. The algorithm is pretty much only useful for making concepts to work from and "I wonder what x would look like mixed with y"

>Is there a limit to how many you can process at once?
Nope! I literally have 64 images of asuka from evangelion to be processed in 64 different styles (to be completed in roughly 4 hours 33 mins) which I will post when completed so as to give a better idea of how this site can ideally be used.

Pretty interesting stuff, though you might wanna diversify your colour usage.
You might wanna study colour theory in general, it'll give your art a huge boost, I like what I see so far, I'm no artist (nor a proper art critic) but I think that creating some kind of artificial border around different objects would make your art more striking, and you could draw attention to certain things in the frame, if you were to apply colour theory to this end aswell it'd surely improve your works.

The rotten ronnies one stands out to me because it's the only one I can find a concrete message in. I find the third one intriguing and evocative, but I can't quite put it all together for some reason.

they're good. im not sure on critism or constructive feedback because im not entirely sure on your direction.

I love the washed out colours, more than anything else in the work, i enjoy the drawings too, so again not sure where you're going what your plans are, i like them.

What are your materials?

i enjoy https://www.instagram.com/p/BNrrCwYl_kP/?taken-by=maghx_em the most.

That sucks about the housefire.
I hope this doesnt come off as offence, but when i first seen your work i thought it would be perfect for political/social commentary, like you know those political cartoons? i think your syle would be wonderful for that, i think you should give it a go, find a social issue and draw about it and see how it turns out.
I mostly say this because your style is kind of haunting and dark but at the same time has a certain serenity to it which balances it all out and you kind of change in between the darkness and the calmness.

So if you want a direction to jump off on, i'd say find a current affair or political issue and do a drawing about it, do a trump cartoon where hes picking some person for his cabinet or whatever i dunno lol.
