Turtle Testing

For some reason, I read that as "Turing Test". which somehow or other became conflated in my mind with "Voight-Kampff Test", wherein, of course, a turtle is referenced...

Kinda lame pose... and what's up with his knee?
Reply
:iconharrywatson:
HarryWatson Featured By Owner May 20, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
that not lame pose...

nothing with his knee... just the bond is red like the background, thats why a bit invisible... should make a bit shaddow there or a line something...

Which is why the knee is weird. It totally blends in the background, but it doesn't seem intentional... Even if it was intentional, I don't understand the reason for it.

I felt the pose was lame because it's an anticipated move, not a move that's already been followed through. There's no "release," as it were.

Does it have to be? I personally like this pose, it feel more original. It has more movement and life to it. Its more of a graceful pose than a power pose, which is refreshing as many western and manga styles are becoming more and more about displaying power rather life.

JRTribe Featured By Owner May 20, 2011  Professional General Artist
Because that's what's interesting??? Seriously, do you really think the Ninja Turtles about showing "life"? No, it's about showing ACTION. Stop defending the piece. It's got its flaws like any other work of art.

Man.

Proffor Featured By Owner May 20, 2011  Student Digital Artist
I think you misunderstand me. When I say "life" mean making the image look like its alive and could continue moving.

And really, it depends on what version of the turtles you look at. This is based off of the 2k3 series by the looks of things and that show wasn't completely action orientated, it was also about character interaction. Thats why that show had a very large female following.

Of course it has flaws- I agree that he probably should have put more shading on the knee pad even if they are red/bathed in red light. I just didn't agree that the pose was a flaw.

JRTribe Featured By Owner May 20, 2011  Professional General Artist
Well, that's your opinion... Obviously I don't agree. Not really much else can be said about that.

However, I will say this: I think it's pretty bullshit to just chalk up the show as the feeble reason that the pose in this particular piece is off. That's pretty ridiculous, considering the Ninja Turtles in general is about turtles kicking ass. Yes there's "character interaction" in EVERY story. That's what makes a story, ya know, A STORY... And besides, it's completely irrelevant. A piece of art should work, regardless if you've watched the show or seen the movie or whatever. It should engage the viewer, which this piece does not. It is decidedly distant and it shows.

You're remarkably blind for someone who has taken it upon himself to critque someone else's work. Not only do you have limited artwork yourself, but your choices of color is a standard palet that can be found on any sort of otaku fan based life.
Story, is story, its to the side but can always be relayed through artwork. There are many comics out there and picture pieces that pride themselves on being able to convay a story without having the use of the artistic language being incoprated. To bring into an argument that story is different from the art work is just displaying your own inexperiance in the magical relm of art.
As for the pose, you can't really say it's all that bad. It's basic, but that's the beauty in it. To over complicate something that does not need complication sends you into a die-hard sense that the picture is too busy and thus not worth more than one glance. True there are things that are too simple but in the end it still stimulates the same senses as to the overly complicated pictures.
The color choice is purely up to the artist. If you want to complain about the colors then do something yourself that's actually worth notice.
Maybe if you spent more time actualy trying to be a good artist yourself and not spend hours posing in front of a wall holding a fake gun like a limp fan at a convention then, just maybe you would get good enough to actually be worth someone's time. But as is, you're only succeeding in making good people have headaches over how rediculous this whole conversation is about. Please save yourself a shred of dignity and quiet yourself now.
