I would like to share with the community some thoughts I´m having since a few years…
-First of all I want to say that I do not want to ofend anyone, nor sound like a grandpa saying foolish things-
I´m the kind of guy who is getting sick of seeing art about war, beast machines, killing, horror…and suffering. And I consider I am a guy just like you, with a normal life, who use poluting cars, consume electronics, and drink beer with fellows after work.
The thing is…do we need to keep going on with suffering-art?
Every day I see renders of guns, blood, hell…etc…Well, it´s ok, but don´t you feel that that kind of art polutes your beeing? I also played quake for hours, or battlefield with friends, but when it comes to offer art to the world, I just can´t think in “suffering-art”.
I think that we see a lot of that kind of creation just because it´s easier to impress people that way. It´s easy to “touch” peoples heart with something rough, like just mentioned before.
But it´s a LOT harder to “touch” people and impress them with beauty. If you want to get a nice modeled face, it is easier to impress with a monster-face, rather than an angel-like face. It´s just a lot easier. It´s easier to impress masses with fear rather than beauty! So I think this is why we see more and more machine/monster/weapon renders. And hey, I also did some of that!
My thought is…when will art really evolutionate? Beatuy is behind things, and it´s hard to represent it. Yes, you can make a war scene and show somthing beautyful behind that, but honestly, you have to bea a MASTER GENIOUS to really achieve it. Sometimes when I´m falling asleep in bed, I start dreaming about beautyfull worlds, or things, and I realize how hard is to make a nice render like these dreams…
I see the world as fantastic creation where life learns to rise from ashes and shadows, and find beauty an joy everywhere.
And I think that someday, art should make a step forward, and also evolutionate.
What we do, is a mirror of what we have inside.
ps: Why everyone imagine aliens armed, with beast machines, and with bad intesions? we can´t even come out of our planet, I think that the day a civilisation does it, it would be the day they colaborate all together in peace, therefore, they should look like peacefull, joyfull, with nice “spaceships”…something more harmonious…don´t you think?
