I finished the clean up and will start rendering today - after work.
- please keep in mind that I am not saying this as a fellow artist but as a Universtiy Instructor and that I always recommend my students to be their own voices instead of somebody's echo -
I'll show you the voices who created this echo!
Marooned. Why is the rhum gone? My thought exactly. Look at the composition, how the guy sit alone, on a flat horizon, small against an empty sky... a spot on the sand. Look at his gesture and how desperate he is... left there... with a bullet in his pistol and nothing left to do but die, one way or another...
The Fate of a Treasure Town - An attack on a Galleon.
Are you seeing Master and Commander here? Yes, that's because Master and Commander took inspiration from Pyle's illustration!
The Ruby of Kisshmoor - Captain Keitt.
The Flying Dutchman. The real deal! Fokke or Van der Decken... who knows? Absolutely not Davy Jones... anyways. We do know, now, that the Flying Dutchman is not a cursed ship but a mirage, like a Fata Morgana, appearing at the horizon due to the refraction of the light in the heat - like a superior image, the ones we see in summer. Back in the days a superior image must have been a superior way of getting scared LOL.
This store sells prints and reproductions of his famous illustrations.
Can't you see how some of them have literally been pillaged by the movies?
Now I am going to show you my very favorite!
Look at the composition, this wonderful up-shot and the details! (No sharks in sight, though LOL).
I love this man!
Next time I'll show you NC Wyeth!
