M 3D photography is more for fun than as art.
My art photography is digital 2D.
I call it "Out of Contextural Art."
I take pictures of objects in such a way that the finished work shows the objects out of context. Some is just decided by how much of the object I capture. Sometimes I manipulate by cropping.
Some are take so close up, you lose all context.
I like to capture patterns and textures others would be less likely to notice.
The results are more or less abstract (depending on the particular shot).

I considered myself an artist when I was young, but I gave it up when I had to go to work and support a family. I never stopped creating things though, mostly with wood. I have done some metal work too.

Not exactly an artist but a crafter! I've been crocheting for 24 years and I mostly make purses or handbags, crop tops, amigurumi and lately I started making shawls. I'm working on an online store for next year! I'm trying to incorporate cross stitching and embroidery in my crochet, looking for ways to make my items stand out! Some times I'll follow patterns I find online, some times I'll design my own things! I also studied graphic design and I'm in a weird relationship with Photoshop! smile002.gif

I crochet along the lines of Irish or Russian lace. I used to make the bigger things like afghans

Wasn’t sure if crafts counted, either. If so, I’ve got a shitload of peeled, sanded, finished & branded walking sticks to eventually part with. Some have carved pistol grip handles, most are smooth, and all are amazingly unique. I’ve considered online sales, but shipping is expensive ...and ya just gotta feel a stick before you buy it smile001.gif

@btroje Send me pictures if you have any!! (Or links) I've never made an afghan, too big of a project for me!

@varn I'd say go for it, sell online, you never know how many people might buy without seeing the product first! And there's a shitload of people with money, most likely they won't care about shipping if the product is good! Just with " amazingly unique" I was sold! I say go for eeeeeeet! I'm not investing in a web page, I'm doing mine on Wix and I make my 'add to cart' buttons in Paypal and it's all good!!

I'm an atheist artist, but I guess it's ok to respond.

I'm a 3D artist dabbling with 4D. I've recently begun a new phase, I've decided to limit my materials. I juxtapose renewables with nonrecyclables.

The piece I'm currently working on makes use of Okra fiber in paper castings (renewable) and molded plastics from candy bags, etc.(nonrecyclable). I like to play with the evolution of humanity from renewables to nonrecyclables.

...was walking past a pile of concrete block rubble today and noticed an old, intact ‘glass block!’ After getting permission to ..rescue it, I spent a couple hours making it sparkle again. Think I’ll just sit it in the sun ..and turn it a bit as I walk by … a sucker for glass, I recycle, too smile001.gif

I am a 3D (Stereo-Photographer). Please explain how 4D art works? What is the fourth dimension incorporated in your work?

'

@MrLizard 4D is time. Similar to a movie, a song, anything that occurs for only a certain amount of time. 3D art that takes time into account.

'

Cool.

Have sculpted, using stuff called "sculpta-mold". Now, mostly draw - using various media . Draw from life, models and animals, and random subjects.
Recently I got turned on to a tablet with a drawing program in it. Essentially all the media in there - you can duplicate any instrument , brush, airbrush, pencil, marker, etc. Great fun !
And you can take photos, put them in the program, and alter them in any way you'd like.

That’s great to hear about the tablet! ...especially as one’s headed my daughter’s way as a gift smile009.gif

I’d wondered the same thing today, though I’d have said Atheist Artists smile009.gif

Art was about all I did well through youth, but as life came on, it felt as though I’d apply it to everything I could… No specific media, I’d incorporate it into the layout of my orchard, trails, home design and decor. I’ve a couple daughters who can put me to shame in the normal artist's realm … but having taught and inspired them often feels like art as well smile001.gif

But what had sparked my ‘question’ was wondering if there’s something about Artists that ..pulls us out the the social loup..? A willingness or ability to view things in a different perspective, thus our apparent ‘disconnect’ with the masses or group-think. I always felt ‘out of the box’ regarding art, maybe that carries over?

That was first thing I noticed when I joined! That there seemed to be a disproportionate number of artists in the group. But I'm not sure what to contribute it to.

I haven't done a whole lot recently, but I love drawing using charcoal. The high contrast and flexibility of the medium make it great fun to work with.

surrealism like Frazetta and Vallejo but with less violence ,more dream settings. I have painted with oils because the color mix is stable and can be covered and stored and you don't have to try to match it. But I like pencil colors too because you can use a stump to blend the shadows into the light.

I had no idea you were an artist. Have you painted a picture of a fox with a glittery tail yet?

'

love it when you come out to dance silver eyes. I have painted and drawn many foxes but it never once occurred to me put glitter on their tails. Just put them on pedestals, and surrounded them with castles, and catch them in a moment they were holding their child as an old man told a story that appears in the clouds behind them.

I like to draw.
Hand draw; Adobe; Gimp
Subject matter? Mostly cartoon.
Although all of my restaurant receipts end up with a turtle on them. He's got a bubble he's in love with. His name is Norman.

Lol!

And all this time I thought you were a writer.

'

@AstralSmoke: Writing is my #1 creative endeavor. But, I like most things that let me use my imagination.

'

@silvereyes I should have written "just a writer".

I have done a little wood carving my subjects most always are animals both real and imaginary with the occasional mythical beast added.
