    I would like to know what make you choose this subject?

    I don't discuss the technique,is not finished ,
    the question is what do you intend to express with the portrait
    of this so despicable man which was Hitler ?
    It don't looks to me as a caricature and even a caricature
    of this person
    is disgusting for me,
    isn't it for you ? What is your opinion on that ?

    how about You ?

    Hello all, you see, as Lee stated, Hitler looks too friendly. Thankfully, this is what was intended.

    Irony, is the subject of the painting. A very bad man, shown in a friendly way.

    A juxtaposition.

    Sorry if I offended any.

    I am making more paintings. More will come on the way.

    yes, it's strange that you chose Hitler as a subject.

    Technically, it is a great piece, but realistically, you need to incorporate things that are in conically Nazi Germany, the Swastika comes to mind, as well as the iconic beige uniforms.. can't wait to see the finished product, good luck.

    I think more than this as an exercise in graphic communication, it's pointing up that your voice is actually heard, and people observe what you do, and have reactions based on what you put out into the world.

    So we're at that place in the exercise.

    Then, the real thing about art is gradually becoming more precise about what you want to say and the effect you want to create. If you do things to shock, you get a certain reaction. If you do things to persuade, you would get another reaction.

    And you will see that you sometimes can have a short run of sensationalism, but it's quite possible you could produce reactions that you mightn't find so desirable. Sooner or later, you're going to get to trust your ability to make an impact without having to resort to extremes to get noticed. . . even though it may not feel like it at this point in your life.

    Young males and not so young males are into power imaginings. And when the world seems like a hostile place, we all reach for things that make us feel tough, dominant, and in control.

    Hitler appears here and there as one of the icons of power, albeit a very nasty one. And to some followers of fantasy heroes, like Conan the Barbarian or any number of comic book heroes and villains. Sadly though, Hitler really existed, and real people were ruined or killed by his rule.

    So know that you're stepping outside the realm of fantasy role playing here. Pretty abstract no doubt at this point, though generic power does stir young men's hearts. And what to do with those stirrings is perhaps one of the biggest questions facing us. Just look at all the mega-industry of fantasy art that plays to exactly those feelings. Young people react to that stuff because power's written into the genetic code.

    But how one uses their power is really at issue, especially when one is pulling from the real world. How one matures that personal force is the big question. I've no doubt you could become a very fine artist if communication is your thing and you work at it.

    I am going to do another on of Hitler.

    People, it is critical that you understand, that I dont paint people that I like.I can paint people that I hate, or feel that dont belong in the world.

    Please, don't jump to conclusions. Hitlers poses are remarkable, but the man himself isnt.

    Loose brush technique is very very good. Red background and swastika in second one is not enough for the theme in overall, in my opinion. First one carries more artistic composition, but the gaze in second painting is very good, like downed. It seems that you have a painting style dear Vladimir.

    Do not be so flimsy, like saying; "Remember, I am not fond of this person nor support Nazism!", because you already said; "Hitlers poses are remarkable, but the man himself isnt."
