For my Painting 1 class, we were told to find one famous artist that inspired us, take one of their own paintings, and attempt to recreate it.
I chose to do the great painting titled "Hustler", the original by the artist Cassius Marcellus Coolidge. :3 The original can be found on this website here: [link]
So this was pretty freakin hard to do, man! x.x It was a bunch of fun, but since we had to limit our time to 7 hours maximum, I couldn't get as much detail as I'd wanted to do to make it look more like the original. :C The German Shepherd, and the Retriever didn't get as much fur definition as they needed, but hey.
My favorite turned out to be the big guy on the right, and the bulldog. xD
But yeah; the professor said the whole point of the project was to attempt to see how the original artist did the painting by painting it ourselves, and I admit I leaned quite a bit with shading and perspective thuur. o3o
Overall, I had fun with the project, and I got a good grade! 8DOriginal Painting and Concept
