What's the best picture you've ever done?


#1

Did a very good painting of Tutankhamun in year 3, mixed up a fucking bitchin royal blue out of powder paint, really made the gold pop on the headdress thing. Won Highly Commended at the school display.

Also my Mum has a picture I drew as a toddler of a “miserable bullock”, it looks exactly like it’s title.

What good drawings or paintings or whatever have you done in your time?


#2

Did a good painting (watercolour) of a pencil reflected in 2 mirrors for GCSE (got a B). Sounds shit, looked good.


#3

I drew a picture of a rotten apple in primary school and I was asked to leave the room


#4

I won a Jesus drawing competition when I was about 10. I was not (and am not) a Christian.


#5

I also drew the cover of the Horrible History book ‘Vicious Vikings’ - My dad got drunk and used it to start a fire


#6

I got told off in art at secondary school for using a ruler in a still life piece of homework, load of bollocks


#7

Who was holding the Jesus drawing competition?


#8

Teacher at school who was a bit of a Bible basher. Was a Christmas thing, and the prize was a large amount of chocolate, which was the main motivation.


#9

just found a version of this that linked to the daily mail site. fucking yuck


#10

I’m starting doing an online drawing zine/blog thing called Boneless. I’ve got a bunch of drawings ready already, it’s just fucking photographing them that’s the thing.


#11

Nice one!


#12

School art teachers insist on loads of complete bullshit, which art colleges then have to unteach.


#13

It’s quite silly.


#14

I really didn’t get on with art at secondary school, this sort of thing didn’t help


#15

Followed!


#16

Here’s number 2 which I’ve already posted to DiS


#17

Good drawings IMO


#18

I remember I had a teacher who insisted it was unacceptable to ever ever work from a reference photo, it always had to be from real life. I don’t know what she thinks book illustrators do.


#19

Did a huge pencil drawing of myself, sat in the palm of my own hand for A level art. Worked solidly on in for a whole weekend and was really proud of it then the bastards went and lost it before the final exhibiton and I had to have a note in it’s place from my teacher explaining to the exam board that they had lost the work.


#20

I did a brilliant picture of a man in a full Manchester United kit (circa 1989/90) holding hands with a man in a full Arsenal yellow shirt with black sleeves away kit (circa 1989/90) and a mitre delta football with red chevrons between them at the age of 9.
