I only just reopened Monolith Models for about two weeks, and now im going to have to shut it all down again. Overwhelmed once again

Alright... Its clear to me as the clear blue skies we're finally having; my previous assessment about fine art was incorrect. It can work. And I think I just figured out how people are finding my site:

Lets play a game :tehe3d: Tehe 3D 50x50 derp 

1. Download one of your deviations.
2. Open up another window and go to this site: 

www.google.com/imghp

3. click on the camera icon and upload the downloaded image from your computer. then click search.

Did it come up? :giggle: :tehe3d: Tehe 3D 50x50 derp  (Eddsworld icon) matt XD 

that is so crazy.

okay, so the artist is Norman Lindsay:

who is the artist? (part two) by dreamfloatingby


and muchas gracias for sharing that with me. :glomp: 

...And, ...I think that might be how they're finding my www.jyoung-studio.com Fine Art site. :smoking:

Alright, well, looks like im going to be busy right again thru the end of this month. no time for anything else. :shrug:

*Keep Tahoe Blue* (the snow is finally melting, thankfully for *that*)

And keep on creating. :meditation: 


cheers. :lolly:
who is the artist? (part two)
okay, this one might be a tricky one.

Its not Suzanne Balli, and its not Von Byros. My wife showed me this so long ago, i forgot who the artist is. 

As I now begin to contemplate different styles for 2-D works for Fine Art, I always found myself drawn to this artist's style, its very similar to my style as a photographer; very heavy on the shadows, I always found it gave a very dramatic effect. What I sculpt or photograph, was always done in a dramatic, sort of moody melodramatic quality.

I remember in Art College, one of my photography professors was always giving me static because I intentionally made my shadows very dark...

It was my style. what can I say. :shrug:

or maybe i'll scrap illustration all together and go with bas reliefs, which are like three dimensional photographs.

still haven't decided yet.

okay, here's an update:

has anyone used/uses the online art gallery: www.saatchiart.com/

Its a place to sell fine art, be it original paintings, sculpture, photographs, etc.

If you haven't, I recommend checking it out. Im going to see about creating an account there later this month, as it appears very much geared to Fine Art for collectors. 

So what's going on? Wellp, all this time (by that I mean since art college) I was under the assumption you don't get to be a 'Fine Artist' until its time to retire. Sure, there are exceptions, some make it big, but for the majority of us, eeeh, well, recent events within the past month have demonstrated to me that may not necessarily be entirely true. And in that, if i truly do have the dream of being one of those artists that just sit around in their studio and do nothing but their own fine art all day and live that dream, then its clear to me now its still not too early in life to get started.

So, if you've used it, I would like to know your thoughts on it. More specifically, its stating that they have online curators that assist buyers; meaning, you tell them the kind of art you're looking for, and they assist you with potential artists and their artwork.

So as Fine Art goes, Im definitely now thinking online art galleries are the better way to go than local, physical galleries.

Your thoughts on that, if you have any...


Meanwhile, Monolith Models is holding its own.

cheers. :lolly:

okay, there it is:

I finally found the time to do it. Facepalm  All I had to do was give up my hour before bedtime, nightly DungeonsAndDragons Online fix.Grump 

(and I'm already suffering withdrawal syndrome. Facepalm )

half way thru processing images, adding my logo, (only 300 more images to go. Sad dummy ) no big deal.

well this is odd- how can 'voluptasism' be a popular 'search term' if I only just invented it. :paranoid:



:paranoid: :paranoid: :paranoid:


...:paranoid:



:paranoid: :paranoid: :paranoid: :paranoid: :paranoid: :paranoid:

hmm, maybe its like 'humanism'; Multiple people useing it for different meanings. 


:shrug: whateva...

slowly re-uploading from all the image reprocessing:

voluptic-art.tumblr.com/

also on pinterest now:

www.pinterest.com/jyoungstudio…


and as soon as I figure out how it works, I'll start 'pinning'. (atleast that's what i think its called) there's all these little buttons I need to figure out. Facepalm maybe its like when buying a new phone, all these little 'apps', gizmos, and do-hickkies, and you havnt the foggiest clue how it works yet. Why can't I just have my old flip phone back? Oh right, because it died, and now I have no choice but to upgrade. Grump Facepalm 

Facepalm 

anyhoo, it appears a lot of my fine art is actually already on pinterest. It's only just now donning on me how far and wide my stuff is on the internet. 

Don't really have a whole lot of time these days, but it appears I need to make time for it. 

running your own online business has proved to be a sun-up-to-sun-down experience, but in late May/June, after winter's thaw, and the flowers are in bloom, I'm going to temporarily suspend the Monolith Models stuff, and engage in some more Fine Art sculptures.


Its a bit cold up in the Highlands at the moment...

okay, so I finally did it:

voluptic-art.tumblr.com/


Actually, I did it almost two weeks ago, but i've been so busy, sun up to sun down, I havn't had much time for anything else lately. Ive been overwhelmed with orders. Again. (But that's the good news.) Monolith Models is definitely working.

Anyway, of the over 600 images to process, Ive gotten half way thru doing just a little each night right before bed time. As time goes on, I'll start uploading more. So, if you're on tumblr, send me a message or something so I know who you are and I'll do the 'follow' thing, or whatever its called. :paranoid: 

Most of the new pictures are uploaded to my website:


www.jyoung-studio.com


but in reality, that whole site needs an overhaul as well. Facepalm  (but atleast I got something done.)

It still slays me-none of my fine art was ever even meant to be viewed by the public, let alone purchased. So what changed? welp, not too long ago, I was contacted by a museum in Kentucky. the email that was sent was very cordial and respectful. and when i clicked on their link, what was in their museum was all professional artists. That an institution was actually taking me seriously was very humbling.Meow :3  Well, as flattering as it was, I don't actually live in Kentucky. :shrug: But it got me thinking about, well, everything. And more specifically, where I going with it

Voluptasism, was something that was born in the safety of my own studio. I guess in a way, it was a bucket list sort of thing. 

In art school, I was bullied by one of the 'sculptor' teachers there.

And what's awful, is that I had no choice but to go along with it. (If I get anything less than a 'B', I can kiss it all goodbye.) The grants, the scholarships, financial aid, etc., everything that I had worked my ass off for, its all gone because of one A-hole. He was a 'self-proclaimed', so called, 'fifth generation student of Rodin'. (WTF thats supposed to mean, I don't even know) But he loved nothing more, than to kiss his own ass, and basically, he was trying to bring his religious beliefs into the classroom in regards to a woman's body. His attitude was basically: women are not capable of making the 'correct' decisions in regards to their own bodies, so he has decided he's going to make that decision for you, and in the lunacy of his mind, he actually thinks he's doing you a favor. (And just like the John Kasich's of the world, he'll try to do it, with a condescending smile on his face.)

So long story short, I was bullied. 

And in his gutsyness, he was trying to muscle in on anything figurative related in the sculpture dept and introduce censorship.
Sooo, I stopped taking sculpture classes, and went back to photography. (I was a photography major, not a sculptor, originally.)


But obviously, I didn't stop studying sculpture. Now, I was doing it in the privacy and safety of my own studio, with the woman I was dating at the time, free to do whatever we chose, where people like him didn't exist. It was a parallel world so to speak. That is where it was born. And I would say, that is where my true development took place...

And, I vowed I would never be bullied again.


Anyhoo, I'll upload more images as I find more time, Woohooooo!  its late, later, running your own business can be quite taxing...

(but that's the good news. Boing! Boing! Ohm... Ohm... )

your sculptures are the utterly beautiful and sensual embodiment of the feminine form in stone.

I love your work, I did a lot of sculpture and painting in the 60's and 70's but had to make money building houses since then till I became crippled 2 years ago and started sculpt and mainly painting about a year ago. still can be creative in a wheelchair. Keep up the great work, hope you get commissions so you can be independent and not worried about money. thanks for sharing your work, charles- kodger
