Hello /ic/, i wanted to make this thread for a long time. I wrote a wall of text, choosing carefully my words, posted it, but 4chan "thinks it's spam", so i have to rewrite all this shit. fuck whoever designed this retarded system.
So I a an european Art student, and i can't help but noticing how /ic/ and my school have different approaches to Illustration.
/ic/ seems to think technical skill and realism is the only thing one should focus on. In my school (which has a pretty solid reputation), one could say there's a kind of "signature style" that emerged, where nobody really cares about mimicking reality. pic related is a good example (that's a screenprint, btw).
So, i wanted to know what /ic/ thinks of our styles, and why do we never see anything close to it on this board.
Is it because we are hipsters? is it because Americans think about selling their art before anything else and thus tries to copy rather than invent? is it because this place is a circlejerk that doesn't want to discover anything different? I'm really curious to hear your opinion on this.
I will post links to former/current illustration students from this school, with some pics so you may see what i'm talking about.
