When people say they're not into art, I usually have cause to raise an eyebrow.

Sure, you might not be into art galleries (I'm certainly not), but almost everyone has areas of art they like - usually subject matter rather than techniques.
I'm sure most of you would be interested by a custom engraved rifle stock, which is certainly a form of art. Almost anyone will have at least one subject matter that they like - it's just a question of what that is.

There's a certain amount of similarity to the anthropic principle here.
The fact that the subject matter I draw appeals to some people on the forum is hardly coincidence - after all, the forum is mostly male and interested in guns and science. It's little surprise that my tastes in artistic subject matter (and thus what I draw) will overlap with those of others on here to some extent.

Also, art is simply more interesting when it's done by someone you (at least partially) know - which is something you could probably say of me to some extent.
I've got friends with artistic talents, and I would honestly rather look at their work than go and see an exhibition of any famous artist you could name - even though my mates' work isn't worth millions.

I think he just meant Art, his neighbour...


I consider all my projects art, eventough I'm crap at it...

I'm not just interested in the performance, but also the arty part of it.

Call it....Performance Art...

I still maintain that almost anyone can be taught to draw.

After all, I learnt... sort of.

Not drawing I'm afraid (it's photography), but here's the latest from my deviantART account:

I do want to finish the drawing, but as I explain in my journal, there are issues (linked with the above photo) preventing it happening quickly:

Well, it's good to hear people like it, as it took long enough to do. I started it over 2 months ago!

I realy like your art and have the same genre taste as you like sci-fi and action.
But what i would really like if you drew a picture with an air cannon in like HEAL or Copperhead Prime.
I visit occasionally to make unrelated posts.
