AIWS, I love your colour bleeds and tonality. It's like a mixture of a dream and awakening during twilight, eyes watered over in a squint, skewing form and applying tint.

My favorite paintors are Van Gogh, Rembramdt, Dali and Magritte. But I don't care about techniques itself, I am interesting in the life and the sense behind the painting. So, besides being AS I am hyperlexic and I taught myself how to paint when I was a child. I did not understand why I did those painting, but now I am an adult, am 21 years old. And I interpretate my own art, years after it happened.

Image

My second coloured painting ever. The face belongs to a friend, she suffered from a terrible disease and she was always smiling and I couldn't understand hapiness and sadness in a moment like that, it was confusing to me. The hands are my cousin's hands she was the only person who went out with me and who touched me. At age 14 I drove myself into depression, anger and pain and became speechless. So hands were my words when I wanted to talk about how I felt. I have never signed any painting, I've named any painting, but someone gave it a name.

Image

This is the copy of a picture I found on the internet, it's an actress called Dakota Fanning. And Having hyperlexia combined with AS was weird, because one of the characteristics of hyperlexia is that when we are kids we distort the world and can't differ something fake from something real, like dolls were humans to me, humans that didn't speak. So that picture was a challange and I gave Dakota fanning a dead look, she looks more alive in the real pic(that's coloured too).

Due to my motor skills people on this board gave me a clue that I may be more like an HFA although, I have a high IQ, here in my country(Brazil) I am labed asperger because of my IQ, but I am so "abstract". So I am still researching and reaching about autism scares me even more.

I paint more realistic nowadays. The older I grew the more I got better without trainning. I also observe clouds and trees a lot and imagine them being painted or being formed in layers, that's my "day dream", I also do it before writing or cleaning my room, I imagine how to do before doing, does it happen to you guys?

thanks computerlove :)
what website do you mean? the one in my signature, or the portfolio i posted a week ago or so (i believe ?)
(didn't you have a website too? i seem to remember such a thing is that possible?)



welcome to wp taly !
i haven't understood the hf autism versus asperger's syndrom either,
i think asperger's syndrom is very alike autism anyway (except for the intelligence)

sometimes i wonder whether asperger's is not like conciously living the fact that you can't control your own mind/body/perception
(which neurotypical people seem to be able to, since they say you have to express/act/behave in certain ways and not in others,
although i'm not sure of that (saying something does not always means it is properly based on something either of course)

i am very curious to see your recent art , like this one very much

LEMON THIS IS MARVELLOUS!! !!

Can you give me suggestion on cameras for someone who wants to become an amateur photographer like me? People are always talking about russian and german lenses. I like Canon in matters of colours and Olympus in matters of sharpness and clairity. I'd like to have an optic zoom above 8x. No digital camera is perfect because you can't trick their lenses. But I have no idea about cameras and everybody confuses me about them a lot.

if you are rich you can buy yourself a 'reflex camera', they can take pictures without having to wait a fraction of a second, so it takes the picture when you click (as the old analogue cameras did)

the best quality is still an analogue camera (with different lenses, it is better to have different lenses and not one that is from 35mm to 100something, but different lenses is expensive of course), but with analogue you have to have them developped, and you can't judge the result immediately.

i heard a 'nikon' is the best camera, but there are a lot of good cameras and indeed the lens is what makes the difference
if you want close ups like my flowers, make sure you can go as low as 2,7 diafragma, then you have a blurry background and a sharp flower, is often interesting and you have better possibilities when less light.

i can explain more on diafragma and closer time if you want to, that's what you need to learn when making pictures (you can also search tutorials on this of course, you need to learn things like: you cannot take a sharp picture if the closing time is less 1/60, or 1/125 if you don't have a steady hand)

Here's a random sketch that I did in pen while I was sitting on the couch, resting my broken back (2 fractured vertebrae), back in May. It takes up a normal 8.5"x11" page.

My http://miles-unfiltered.blogspot.com/ contains quite a bit of my current work. You just gotta sort through the rubble. A link at the bottom of my blog goes directly to much of my older work- some of it very pedestrian.

I'll update my site, mostly design work, I'll give you the link maybe by next week when it's done :)

Lemon, you should definitely focus on something like the rat at your portfolio, that style looks very very awesome, I think there's a future in there.

Man, I would love to see "Tulip II" done in stained glass.

Just a standard bic ball-point pen.

Edit 2: Here are a few sculpts that I've done:

A rose I sculpted as a mother's day gift a few years ago. Medium: Super Sculpey

An old, unfinished demon sculpt. Medium: WED clay

Here's the first full head I sculpted, back in 2003, cast in latex.
