C’mon, quite a harsh and unnecessarily hostile respond from you, ChristianOK. I find raxodist’s thread pretty neutral, with no reason to bring up that strong liking or disliking Trump opinions. He just said “It is not for a particular reason that I like him…”, and that’s it. Nothing particularly provoking. I’m from Finland, so Trump doesn’t affect my life at all. But for me politics is a neutral thing, and I have no reaction, opinion or care for it, whatever it is about, lol. I only care about art.
But it seems, that you’re quite a Trump supporter, which is fine and all, but you don’t need to tell others that “it’s not acceptable to not to like, support, or respect in sense Trump”. In general, I’ve noticed that political discussions get heated very sensitively, so it’s better not to discuss about it in anywhere else, than in a specific forum dedicated to political stuff.
Coming back to to raxodist’s work, to me it looks like a likeness study, so it’s not “important” to have a specific subject regarding political figures, you’re way too pushy with this subjet man, relax.
But yeah, likeness is off. Needs more focus on primary and secondary anatomical shapes apart from detailing too early. It’s an okay start, but pushing those basic things could make it even better.
