    Okay.. so I plan on painting my room wall. I was actually suppose to do it last summer, but didn't have the chance to. But this summer, it's a goal I'm going to complete. I have ideas.. but I have no idea what I should paint.

    Well here were some of my ideas:

    -landscape
    -graffiti
    -abstract

    So far, I'm most interested in the graffiti, but I have no idea how to draw graffiti. It'll look amazing if I can do that, but at the same time, my parents would kill me too because it'll make my room look ghetto.

    Landscape is okay.. but it's kind of a cliche. I'm a fan of the painting called "The Great Wave" and wouldn't mind imitating that style, but I sort of want to create something out of my imagination.

    Abstract is cool too, just slap some paint on depending on how I feel. But.. I want it to be pleasing to the eye because I'd be waking up everyday and it'll be the first thing I see.

    I'm going to reserve little spots for my friends to paint as well since they're really close friends of mine. They suck at art, but it's okay 'cause they're cool like that haha. But yeah, I wouldn't mind hearing some suggestions.

    So yeah.. that's my story, and yes, I'm a painter. [​IMG]

    I actually kind of like that painting. I studied it before.. I THINK its called Creation of Adam? By Michelangelo? I forgot so much stuff already. [​IMG]

    But yeah these are a good start. Keep'em coming. I'm getting closer to an idea. [​IMG] Thanks for the feedback.

    paint penises and pentragrams

    I'm sure your parents would be happy with that.

    [EDIT] better yet, Pentagrams MADE OUT OF penises. That would be awesome and should go over well with your parents.

    I cannot possibly let that pass without referring you to BoneMonkey's Christmas Compo Entry:

    [​IMG]

    Quite the eerie coincidence if you ask me.

    (BTW, it's an animated gif, so make sure you watch the end slides.)

    Edit: Had to fix things in a giffy.

    Wow that graffiti style landscape is really cool! I might actually do something like that.. though I never tried graffiti so I'm going to have to practice with a pen/pencil on paper first.

    And Orc, the parody of The Great Wave looks awesome as well haha.

    laminaatplaat, I might consider that idea if I want to cover the rest of my walls. [​IMG] but for now, I'll paint my first one. Thanks for the help!

    Okay.. I'm gonna come up with some rough sketches when I have time and I'll upload them.

    I used to do graffiti for 10 years.
    I wouldn't recommend you to do one in your room if you are not experienced with cans(sprays).

    Or you can take a picture of yourself painting some random wall (brick, maybe), then print out the photo really really large, and stick it on the wall like a poster.
