Daenerys Targaryen by jodeee Daenerys Targaryen by jodeee
Finally found a bit of time to finish her.
I'm really pleased with how she turned out.
I'm about 200 pages into a feast for crows,
my god G.R.R.Martin the things you've put me
through.

Jodie, I want to express all of my support to you. It feels terribly, horribly, insanely wrong to get such talent denial from a group whose purpose is to promote art. Yet it tells how much wrong one can be by judging somebody he doesn't know. Openness of mind takes humility and maturity; admitting to be mistaken takes even more courage. That guy has just shown plain ignorance and blatant arrogance against your skills and your personal investment. It also takes people like this to make the world, unfortunately and sadly enough. You'll deal with them again in your life, just be prepared for it. I honestly think there's no point in wasting your time trying to defend yourself against them.

I know it's hard to ignore such rudeness because it remains in written words. But your talent is there and you have your conscience with you, which nobody can ever defeat. And if there are fools enough to reject your extreme talent, then so be it but *they* miss something you not.

This said I kept the preview of your work in progress waiting to see... this. And I can tell you I'm gazing in awe. Not telling you this to just reassure you but because it's the naked truth. I was really expecting something beautiful and you did it. You've done a terrific work, Jodie. Keep it all up and be proud of yourself.

you know, I think there's only you who can leave me feeling this way when you comment. you're so considered and lovely, I thank you dearly for your support, which is greatly appreciated, It means so much. :love:
The fire and anger I initially felt upon receiving such a slight have since cooled down, I'm a lot calmer about it now and as such, I am no longer in talks with hitmen :D
As you say I know I painted this and that's all that matters, I thank you again for such kind words about her, I'm so pleased you like the end result. I suppose for every one of these nasties there is someone like you, and that makes it all worth while.

I wouldn't feel too bad about these galleries they don't after all pay a wage it's just internet jargon. If I may say so I do think there is a little inconsistency throughout your gallery every artist has a signature style easily recognised to that artists name I do find it hard to see yours. Don't get me wrong I'm not putting you down at all I think your gifted I just feel a little advice could help. As an idea try posting up a mini tutorial to shut these bastards up. I did one once because some Ijiots can't tell the difference between a photomanip and a painting. I wish you all the luck and I am in your corner.

Thank you for your comment, and don't worry I am open to advice. I am a rookie as far as digital painting goes, I know I have a long way to go
stylistically and technically and am pretty open to suggestion. I am constantly seeking improvement within my work, and no one has ever made that comment before so thank you for highlighting something I hadn't considered. I know these supergroups are full of volunteers and on the whole I have had great experiences with most of them. It just came as a surprise as I didn't think anyone would question it legitimacy. I will take it as a back handed compliment and like you say - have the evidence at hand next time.
Your work is stunning, to have a heavyweight such as yourself in my corner I consider an honor.

If you ever seek advice on techniques and such you very welcome to ask. For me my favourite side of art is sharing and community too many people on DA and some galleries are here to have just their egos stroked. Honesty is always important, it has certainly helped me through the years no matter how heart breaking critisms were.

I started painting a lot more painterly precisely because I got that kind of thing a lot.... a lot of my stuff used to border on photorealism, and I tend to do better with references as well... just good at visual comparison really. The fact of the matter is though.... people can just snap a photo or take a screenshot... not like before cameras... so painting too close to reality doesn't actually do that well online where people can't necessarily see the brush strokes... especially if it is digital art. W.I.P.s can help, but not if people don't look at them. For some reason working from references even gets frowned on by some, and other people insist that digital art isn't really art because people can "cheat" too easily.

I started out in traditional mediums and can paint decently on canvas and sculpt as well though with a slower turn around that digital. I have since migrated to digital art mainly because of the lower overhead and reduced time necessary to paint a piece, not to mention the huge advantage of no clean up. I do most of my work from references though, sometimes I vary... no reference or something like three photo manipulations.... I don't actually have much experience with those, and I'm not familiar with all the tricks. Most people when bashing digital art and favoring "traditional" art don't seem to realise that a lot of people who paint traditional art use projectors to trace from. Unfortunately , I've never owned a projector because that could have saved me time when I needed to hurry with my traditional paintings. Furthermore, some of the classic painters highly regarded as "masters" did much the same thing albeit more primatively using the sun mirors and lenses to project their subject onto canvas. Granted, you still have to be better than your average paint by number artist to get the results they did, but those people are always respected as "Masters" even though people with a narrow understanding of art would say they had "cheated" if held to the same standards as digital artists.

So basically what I'm saying is... it DOES take more skill to paint convincingly without tracing, and even more so with no reference at all. Skill however does not in and of itself make art "good" or more valuable. We do have camera's these days afterall. You could paint so well that people could not distinguish your painting from the photo you were looking at, but if it's a dull photo... it will be a dull painting. What really matters is that the end result is good... not how you got there. An engineer might get props for doing calculous longhand, but no one is going to fault them for using a calculator if it saves time and get's to the answer more quickly. So, however you might have done it, you produced some attractive fan art. Just be happy with that and ignore the pretentious people :)

thank you very much for such an indepth response. I agree with you whole heartedly, I have only been painting digitally for the last 4 years or so
and as such I'm still finding my feet. It baffles me that people frown upon taking reference, How do you paint something If you don't know what it looks like, even in everyday life, watching people, talking to them you mentally take note and put into practice what you have observed. Practice makes perfect and for me that's what this is, experience from painting from life/high quality reference seems invaluable and necessary to me to develop as an artist. I used to do my portraiture traditionally with pencil and I agree, that did get a better response within the community.
I have gotten over the initial insult of the comment now, I think what wounded me the most was just how proud I was of the standard of this painting, I guess they do say it comes before a fall.
thank you again for your comment. :)

Great work, and I don't get why they assumed it was a paint over, of course work you did from the top of your head are going to have more anatomical flaws than one where you have a good reverence picture! I think this person didn't really think this through!
