speaking of art history
this is Undine by Chauncey Bradley Ives. she’s at the Smithsonian.
and this is her from the back
that is marble, y’all.
carved so thin you can SEE THE LIGHT THROUGH IT.
fucking art, y’all.
the realism of thin fabric folding and draping over a freaking perfectly sculpted body is killing me
Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.
in before tumblr screams about cultural appropiation
This doesn’t even count as cultural appropriation
This isn’t a person robbing a culture, to hell with the others
This is a child born right next to that culture
Who was embraced by the people and taught how to do some of the things they do
Which is not the same as cultural appropriation
No cultural appropriation. Just something really beautiful.
I don’t know what any of you are saying, I just like the story.
Ok holy shit. I don’t draw ponies at all but I drew one just for fun and I couldn’t stop at all so with some severe back pain and spacing out, I did all of these in 5-6 hours.
I was only going to have like 1-2… so yeah Petra, Gunther, Mike and that..guy who bites his tongue is left out and Pixis and probably other ones… but this is more than enough IMO hope you enjoy random MLP spazz.

If you are terrified of snakes then I suppose this beautiful Serpents series by Paris based artist Guido Mocafico isn’t really your cup of tea.

oh wow it’s like they’re made of liquid metal
Inspiration: Pardon My Dust: The Chalk Art of Peter Han
Designer Peter Han (he rejects being called an artist) has worked as a conceptual designer for a number of different video games and films, but has also become known for a drawing class he teaches called Dynamic Sketching. Using only chalk, Han works with his students to let go of their preconceived notions about art and design by working in a fast, impermanent medium that always ends up being erased. The hope is to eventually free them from the idea of permanence and allow their ideas to grow through making mistakes.
In memory of ,our beloved teacher, Norm Schureman. <3
