Wading for the Sun by jayalders Wading for the Sun by jayalders
The warm summer sun, waves peeling, the mesmerizing light reverberating through the ever-changing forms of the ocean and the sight of a beautiful girl wading towards the sea. For many of us, these things bring us passion, tranquility, maybe even envy.

clearly all these 'dat ass' commentors have never seen 'surrealistic' paintings before. The style exaggerates elements of the human body on purpose. I think this is compositionally fantastic and I could easily see this at an art auction

Honestly, I clicked on this because DAT ASS. :icondatassplz:

Looking at the rest of the painting, I'm amazed. The textures you use are brilliant, and I love the mosaic stained-glass look of the water. The sun looks like something straight off a stained glass window. The lighting is perfect; you can almost feel the warmth of the sun and the cool water just looking at it.

I do have to say, though, the anatomy is VERY distracting. It's fine up until the butt, but that's just so very unrealistic that I can't get past it without forcing myself. I think perhaps a subtler line would have suited the subject better and would have drawn less attention away from the beautiful textures and colours of the rest of the painting.

I was going to make a comment about her funny-shaped ass and the protusions on her back, but it looks like everyone has covered that already for me. :lol:

Joke aside, this is a beautiful piece. Love the color palette and the abstract shapes.

People don't bother to look at the rest of your gallery before getting offended or somehow personally upset that this piece was awarded a DD. I bet some of these same people would have much less volatile reactions looking at the work of Picasso.

The award is well earned, by my reckoning. You capture in paint every word in your description. That ocean and sky are amazing. Congratulations. :aww:

It is, and it's apparent that you deal with the negativity rather well. I'm not sure if it's easier to handle the negativity on a personal project or the disappointment at seeing so much blind negativity on something one isn't personally invested in.

you know honestly I only clicked on this because I thought it was a joke. This "beautiful girl" is nothing to "envy" honestly as a female I cant help but be slightly offended to hear that anyone actually considers that attractive or "beautiful" which to me implies some degree of elegance.

Yes this is well painted, and I like it, but only as a joke about stereotypes.

it goes to show that alot of people arent paying attention to the bigger picture( or the rest of your gallery) because if they have they wouldnt be making such comments and take the painting for what it is.

i chalk all the comments as immaturity of something that they are not understanding. if they have more exposure to this type of work outside of realism and anime(< which is very unrealistic) they would understand that its not all about how realistic it is but about the artist artistic vision and how they "see " something their subject ... and this is how you saw yours

Thank you most sincerely. Thankfully every artist has a different way of seeing the world and expressing visions and concepts. I personally prefer painting from my mind, whatever that entails. Sometimes it defies the laws of physics and sometimes people don't understand or choose to not be kind. It happens and it's ok. It makes the nice people like you stand out.

It's not that they're large, just horrendously misshapen - like she's stuck two watermelons under her skin. I'll give it a pass because it's obviously a stylised painting, it just looks weird.

"it just looks weird"
So does the whole painting, it's what gives it its charm. You think that the sky and ocean looks like that in the real world? I would think I was tripping on acid if I saw that. The ass is the least of my concerns.
And you took the words right out of my mouth it's "obviously a stylised painting"

Again your lack of effort is disconcerting... "crying like a little bitch.". How unoriginal can one person be? At least get creative when trying to take a stab at my ego. What's next? Are you going to make fun of my mother or perhaps you'll make a reference to a rather tried and true meme? But maybe it's not lack for trying, perhaps you just suck at making people feel insulted as much as you do everything else in your life.

God damn it! So what if there is a big butt there! its a great piece of artwork, And the ass is just an ass.
Everyone has an ass! Should people draw paintings without asses!?

"Oh, It would be great if it did not have a big butt in it"

God damn it, What is with people? What, Are you pricks trying to imply that your a pervert if you look at this? Then you might as well say the Mona Lisa is perverted because she's smiling!

It's a wonderful piece, but those big butt implants and pokers sorta take away from the good things. Sure it's amazing to stare at if you're a perv, or some desperate guy living in your mom's basement, but really, in my opinion, things like this are not very pleasing to the eye.
