    These are superb! Its a joy to look at their beauty and strength.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Wow, thats an eye opener... even the photo ref itself looks hardly different from Tinzo's painting

    Thanks for posting that Ray, and congrats on the good work with your horses

    No to offend anyone... but an interesting insight into people's working methods.

    I have scaled each of the three images to the same size based on the position of the horse and have them playing in sequence. My take on the reference image is that although it is based on a photograph it has been manipulated and turned into digital art already by Wojtek Kwiatkowski so in that sense I consider it "Painted".


    Your horses are beautiful Ray. Keep 'em coming. There is a grace and power in the form of a horse that can be found in no other creature.

    What an amazing find, Fashmir! Just goes to show how great minds think alike. And a hot lick is a hot lick (musically speaking).

    I have had that experience where I playing at getting a guitar lick like T-Bone Walker or Eric Clapton. (I'm new enough at it that if I get five notes in a row, I'm calling it a major success. And I won't quit till I get it exactly the same -- leastwise till I can really play).

    Back to painting, were I able to do it perfectly right off like Tinzo, I would probably try varying it like Ray. And move on when I got what I wanted out of it.

    I have to say I really like the original. But the others are really cool as well.

    And who knows, somebody may copy Tinzo's or Ray's.

    Really though, thanks for that insight into how a couple of the better painters handle imitation or copying in ArtRage. When using an image to paint over, It must almost paint itself for guys that good. (And I'm guessing that they painted over the original on layers probably. If not, that's fine. My point still holds.)

    Really cool. And removes any guilt for everyone else.

    Gee, this really is very interesting.... thanks for doing that slide show Fashmir!

    The slide show explained a lot for me! First off I could more easily see what each artist had brought to the image which was different.
    I had originally made the naive assumption that the horse was entirely painted from scratch - from the artists imagination, and was not so heavily reliant on the photo ref...

    Some would refer to this sort of thing as a 'photo-manipulation' rather than a 'painting'. But from my (amateurish part) I tend to admire a great image in any way it comes.
    I have tried (and failed many times ) to achieve the type of thing done here by both artists, but with no worthwhile end result. The closest I have ever got to it was my newborn babe portrait, which took me far longer to do than painting it in the 'old fashioned' way, and in any case it ended up better that way!

    Therefore I have a good deal of respect for both artists! Its not as easy (to a numpty like me anyway), as it looks.

    However, one niggardly thought remains.... what about the photographer who did all the leg work to start with, and who gets no mention, acknowledgment or credit?
    Clearly the photographer himself is making art in the first place, so why is it that we feel that by modifying or changing another's work, and then calling it our own its OK?

    I dunno (scratches head). Just niggardly questions, none of which are intended to discredit these particular artists both of whom I respect and admire.

    I'm mostly interested in how we view this dilemma...

    (When I was a student, using somebody else's ideas or writing in an essay was called plagiarism, and was a severely punishable offense. One was allowed to quote another, but never pretend that it was your own work - particularly if you shuffled the words around a little bit)

    Ray, wonderful work on the horses. I am so in awe of people that can do horses effectively. These are amazing. Just beautiful. I appreciated the link to the original horse photographer/ photo manipulation artist /artist... that Fashmir posted too... Wojtek Kwiatkowski His work is just stunning!
    He calls it a photo. http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=4037334
