Venus. by ThE-UnKO-LeMa Venus. by ThE-UnKO-LeMa
A breif 5 minute sketch i did a while ago... Cleaned up using the cutout effect to save time.

no it doesnt have a personal meaning to me in any way- so what ever you get from it is your own interpretation not mine.... :P

Considered titles (thanx to all those people who tried to help me name it);

* Levi! what were you thinking?! (thanx mum)
* Bliss (thanx Ben- 'bliss' is the name of the rolling hills background in windows xp, which can also be seen in this pic... and 'bliss' also takes on new meaning here)
* Dont you know this is the Venus room? (Venus said that)
* Where'd you come from? mars? (thanx Kelly... Venus said that again)
* Childs play (?)
* The Secretary Bitch of Windows (Thanx Ryan, his explanation- Windows is a bitch with all these error messages, you've sprung the bitch who sends them in the land of 'bliss')
* I really look like that? (thanx mr whoeveritwas- said by venus, her response as she looks in the mirror)
* Venus just aint what she used to be. (thanx mr whoeveritwas2)
* AHHHHHH!!! (countless people)

your titles are welcome... (as well as your comments :P)

Umm ok... let me know before you release it though ;)
If its too much alike, I will ask for you to give a link to my page and a small part in the credit/artist comment.
... I guess you can upload it reguardless, but so long as you give a link/credit to me. If its a lot different, then I will let you remove the credit.

But sure! I love to see re-interpretations of artist works... no one has ever asked to do this to a piece of mine, so thankyou :)

i hate it when artist get all picky like this... i mean, i think u can agree, this is hardly an artwork, and more a sketch, which btw is not ur best... and its only copying if u get the tracing paper out... which i doubt this person is going to do... i think wat they were asking was if they could copy the crazy idea... probably 4 fun

so dude, and this goes for all artist who get pedantic about people copying there stuff, chill out

btw this is more desturbing than funny, and does not showcase ur drawing abilities, ur much better than this sketch

Its not meant to be funny... rather make a social comment.
I like it as a concept, not a drawing, and what it means to me.
Therefor its close to my heart.

but I leave it up to your interpretation as to what it actually means- and no this is Not a sexual fantasy.

If somebody else conveys a similar meaning by representing it as I have then I deserve just a little credit (reguardless of the style/medium the artist uses)... even if it just says "loosely inspired by the-unko-lema..."

... I dont ask much credit...

im sorry but wat social comment does this work make, i am desperately trying to think of something.... its not that im against u specifically, its just that artists are influenced by everything that they see, we shouldnt have to aknowledge an influence unless we'v got out the tracing paper, or manipulated some1 elses image.

if i saw a movie and i was inspiried to paint a picture with a similar concept, that would be considered ok, y then is it not ok to paint a picture inspired by another persons artwork, which has similar concepts, or inspired the work?

all im trying to say is that it is becoming ridiculus, giving credit to influences, id like to believe that my work is orignal enuf not to have to do that

What it means to me is up for you to work out... use Freud if you need to.

I agree that all art theory and acknowledgement is a bit wanky...

But when an artist comes saying that they 'want to draw THIS, I'll change it up a BIT"...then you can at least ask for something small... He's not being influenced by 'everything that he sees', he going to 'change' a concept that was originally mine...

I have no problem with him painting a picture inspired by my work so long as he says 'loosely inspired by..."

As for your work it is original, although some people recognise the image, and thats when you say "yes I based it on a photo pose originally by ..."
People still know that the work is yours and that you haven't copied, but you still give a little acknowldegement.
and you have done that before- I've heard you.

PS- your avatar is freaking me out... I like your old one better.

really, i quite like this 1... i think thats because iv been heavily influenced by the movie 'melina' anyways im keeping it... i like change every so often
ThE-UnKO-LeMa Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2006   Digital Artist
looks like Arnulf Rainer (i think its Arnulf's) that black and white freaky one where it looks like all rushed painted worms are coming out of chicks face... in an art room book somewhere...

I havent seen Melina

You won't be able to recognize it when I'm done with it.

ThE-UnKO-LeMa Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2006   Digital Artist

'interesting' yes... thats often what people say when they see this as they screw up thier faces like they've just chewed on a sour lemon, so far only one person has laughed... i love it, its gross but cool.
