They aren't mine. A (now ex) Google employee was posting them on the Other Place's /wg/ a month or two ago, and had made them using the maps developer tools. Apparently he got fired for it. He was making them on request, and each took around 10-15 minutes or so.

That seems odd, he was fired because he used the tools to produce this kind of stuff? Didn't think Google would be that tight about this, unless I'm missing something about the images. Aren't they just certain aspects of the map over a black background?

I think they breached some regulation - some sort of copyright or something like that. He mentioned something about them containing information that shouldn't be available to the general public, too, although they're far too small a resolution for anyone to make anything out like that.

I'd love to try my hand at sculpture, especially with clay and stone. I'm a bit of a wannabe fine artist, so I'm looking to make human figures on a tiny scale. However, I have no idea how I'd get started with such a hobby.

Do you Britfa.gs have any insight into this?

Again, human bodies, mainly. As much detail as I could possibly get there. I can mainly see myself making at least or bigger-than lifesize sections of the human body. Hands, heads or feet for example.

Yes, but human bodies can have different levels of detail. Modern statues are often made in clay then cast in some variety of concrete to look like stone, and aren't terribly detailed. On the opposite end of the spectrum are things like this which are mostly made from a number of different chemicals similar to latex and silicone. There's a lot of fibreglass in there too for structure.

The statue-style thing is the most likely contender.

There are a couple of things you need to think about as well as scale: do you want to sculpt in the final material, or is the sculpt going to be used to make a mould?

(Some variety) of clay is good for human sized bits. You can get most of the important lines and creases and a good imitation of skin texture in it. I'm only experienced in using clay for masters though, then moulding it before it dries and discarding the original sculpt.

I just won an A2 painting of my choice, so naturally I decided I want a portrait of myself looking very important, and also with an African lion by my side.

I was sure I can't have been the first one to consider something like this, but I can't find a single example of a portrait of someone posing with an African lion.

If any of you guys know of one, can you please post it here? Or even with any other animal, really.

I think a portrait similar to this George Stubbs piece will be more eye catching, though of course you should have the artist pain you in place of the horse, on all fours, wide eyed with anguish.

Perhaps having either you or the lion smoking a cheroot.

I think it might be Star Wars concept art for Coruscant by Doug Chiang. I think the guy put it in his Syd Mead set to make the point that it is heavily influenced by Syd Mead.

3956 A request.
I need a primary source for a project I'm doing. It's about the economy of Renaissance Venice (1250-1600), and I've been thinking I could use a painting or a sketch, or any sort of artwork from that time. It doesn't have to be very good, it just has to represent the economy or trade in some way. So perhaps a busy canal, a bustling market, etc. It also has to be from that time period.

This is a lot harder than it seems to find on the net, and I was hoping on the offchance someone had any ideas?

This Canaletto would be perfect, but unfortunately it is out of the time period.

3948 ARRRRRRRRT shows in your area
This board is a little dead, here's an idea!
Post local or interesting art exhibitions/shows/events whatever here, on the off chance someone nearby is interested.
I'll start with something I plan to see tomorrow;
> "Kokoro: The Art of Horiyoshi III"
> Somerset House, London
> 21 March – 1 July 2012
> Courtyard Rooms, South Wing
> Free Admission
> Kokoro means 'heart' in Japanese; it is the 'feeling', the 'inner meaning' that underpins the Japanese approach not only to art, but to Japanese life as a whole. It is what makes Japan quintessentially Japanese. With this selection of paintings by Irezumi master Horiyoshi III and photographs by Alex 'Kofuu' Reinke and Matti 'Senju' Seldhom, we hope to make you 'feel' Kokoro; leading you on a journey where the typical japanese nature and legends take life in silk paintings and photographs.

>Internationally renowned tattoo artist Horiyoshi III is a great supporter of traditional japanese culture, history and craftsmanship but yet he embraced the modern western world, observed it, understood it and changed his art, evolving but keeping it japanese; this is ultimately the power and essence of Kokoro. It is a spirit that knows no time or physical limits.

Well, wasn't that exciting. Hoped it'd be more like photos in OP, something a little interesting visually, Instead I was treated to two rooms with a couple of silk hangings , which were pretty nice on their own but also quite cliche due to resembling all that manga/jap tattoo/stuff you'd draw on your pencil case vibe. Highlights, an abstract zen piece shoved above a fireplace and a little porcelain figure of a volumptious, heavily tattooed woman, bound up with a big grin on her face.
Also Somerset House has the greatest bogs in all London.

Also went to the Royal Academy to see a Hawksmoor exhibition, which again is tiny, just a little space on a ramp, mostly anecdotes and quotes from famous figures about his architecture, some paintings, photos, maps, plans. Nothing to write home about, so I've written about it here.

Those who do practice the traditional forms of tattooing tend to keep it behind closed doors, and it tends to be aged, highly-regarded "masters" of the hand-poking technique that do it. The style and method are different and distinct, and regarded differently (eg. with a lot more of a spiritual aspect to the process) to the Western style of tattooing. This article covers the fluctuations in cultural opinion of tattooing in Japan pretty well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irezumi

3037 Biblical or Deathly, hellish art works
I'll post a few but what I'm really hoping for is a bit of guidance from you lads.

I've recently become deeply interested in the depiction of Biblical concepts as actual beings. I'm reading John Milton's Paradise Lost at the moment and am nearing the end of it, I read Milton, a poem by William Blake, before it.

I know the art work I've attached isn't really anything to do with those works of literature but ah, I don't know where I'm going with this. I'm not to bright you see (sob story ect)

But yes, what I'm hoping is that one of you could point me in the right direction for more good stuff like the above and attached. The art works I'll be posting are just a few I've found on google image searches so I don't really know about them, I just like them. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks lads

You need to check out Bosch. His stuff is often really surreal but it's very close to that first image you posted.

John Martin you've already got, but just fyi, there's an exhibition at the Tate running until 15th Jan of his stuff. I've not gone but my dad said it was breathtaking, and that you just can't get any real feel for these kinds of works until you see them towering over you.
