    This thread is for posting or discussing works of art. This can include album art, but since we've already got a rather massive album art thread in the main GMD, I'd recommend that we stick with non-album stuff.

    I'm hoping this thread will also help to divert non-member-related pictures from the "pics thread", since that thread would be much cooler if it focused on the actual lives and doings of the people who post here.

    That said, I'll start things off with one of my favorites - the Flammarion woodcut:

    I love the concepts behind this piece. It kind of makes me wish the universe actually were designed like that -- discovering the edge of the world would be the coolest thing ever!

    Eh, a little plain and depressing for me. Of course, that's what he was going for in most of his work, it seems.

    Hmmm, I'm not a big fan of that kind of stuff but it looks like it would make for some cool video game graphics or whatever.

    I like the Dali elephants. My favorite in The Temptation of St. Anthony is the one on the right that's carrying a stone tower on his back. :zombie:

    William Turner, The Fighting Temeraire, tugged to her Last Berth to be broken up, 1838

    Surely one of the most evokative paintings ever.

    That's not 3D....They looked like graphic art.

    3D art is sculptural art. I don't know why they're calling themselves 3D.


    edit:^ I love Turner's work.

    Those of you who saw my thesis work for my show probably can see the similarities to my work in Nerdrum's, he's a big inspiration for me.
