You are very talented, Orco. Just to clarify, though, dbgnrocks, this is still Orco's 'interpretation.' A paying customer is seldom credited for 'interpreting' a piece of art, credit does and should always go to the artist that drew, inked, and colored the piece in subject every step of the way. You just paid him and told him what it would look like, or should look like, but it's his talent that rendered the final product. Vocally or verbally describing something does not create art. That's like giving Walt Disney credit for creating Mickey Mouse, when in reality, he is not the creator of Mickey Mouse, that would be Ub Iwerks. Ub rendered and drew Mickey upon Walt's request, and then Walt only owned Mickey. Be a little humble and give the real artists the credit they deserve. Without their talent, money and thoughts mean nothing.
Uhm... that's an interesting point... Well, I think all the credits for the "piece of art" or wathever you want to call it should go for the artist, but the credit for the design should go for the creator if he drew it before. I mean, if you see an astonishing image of Batman and you say you love it you're paying the artist a compliment, but you know the character was a Bob Kane's creation. In this case he didn't only describe it verbally, he showed me his own design, and you can love the design or you can love the drawing, or both, I thing they are two different things. I think Superman's design is one of the best superhero designs, but I don't like Joe Shuster (or whoever drew it for the first time) drawings...
Yep, I agree. However, even the design of Superman or Batman have long evolved over the decades from their initial conceptions, and when Jim Lee draws him today without the overly elonated cowl ears, the dark briefs over gray pants, armor details opposed to spandex, and no short-hem boots, along with many other details, including enblem, I think Lee should be credited solely as the interpreter for Batman's updated, and evolved design. And people do credit Jim Lee when they see a great Batman comic, not Bob Kane. I mean sure, they credit Kane as creator, but Lee as the artist, and thus, the one wbo interpreted the piece. This is what I meant. Of course, Bob Kane would still be credited as the creator, but Lee deserves full credit for coming up with a very streamlined, new look to reflect today's world. While dbgnrocks has credit of being the design's architect, let's say, you interpreted that blue-print via lineart, inking, and coloring when you sat at your desk to render it.
first of all, it is my interpretation, I first drew it like this, then I asked orco05 to make it so I would know how it looks in Toriyama style, I created this design, so no matter what you say, I drew the first picture of this design, therefore it's MY interpretation
I just checked your page and I didn't see any designs that really looked like that but whatever. It's a great piece of art, and in my opinion, from an ethical P.O.V, the artist deserves credit for its interpretation but to each his own.
Just a comment reactant from observation, relax. I wasn't flaming you. This is an artist's website, and coheret, intelligent debates are welcomed. Think of it like college, you're encouraged to voice your point of view.
Cool I like how you used vivid colors to really tie this piece together (SSJG Goku = red, this = grey) and it is cool to see your interpretation of this form. I also like the merger of SSJ4 a little bit because it adds another level of destructiveness to it. However, I am not really a fan of the background but I guess that doesnt really take away from the main focus of the piece. The effects are superb not to mention the shading and linework Keep it up
