View Full Version : My 11th grade art class portrait of DT...

I drew this as my "portrait" project, I figured that you can never do too much too honor the life of a great linebacker, and human being. Needless to say I pulled an A on this one.

But I'm revising the page I just put this on so it might be awhile before you can see it again...

Artistically talented people make me sick.

Just a tiny bit jealous.

Come to think of it, people in 11th grade make me sick.

A LOT jealous.

Nice pic, dude - how much you want for it?

07-06-2001, 03:05 PM
Hey, I dunno if your serious or not, but even if you were, I'm not quite sure if I'd actually wanna part with it.....maybe for the right price though:D

Hell, yeah I'm serious. But I don't wanna pay out my nose. Tell me what you think is fair and I'll consider it.

Son- Back in my day we didn't have any fancy paints or colored pencils. If we wanted to look at someone on the wall we'd just staple-em up there. And we liked it that way.

Nice work

Rod- has no artistic ability

Well done, what did the rest of the class think?

07-06-2001, 07:49 PM
The rest of the class thought it was good, I think the only better was some freshman prodigy and I'm not quite sure if she did do better. The teacher loved my stuff, the stuff I did........you see, if I don't get into the thing I'm drawing, I might as well not do it, because I don't try as hard, and don't use too much time, so all the other assignments such as: Draw a clock.....I didn't get into or didn't even do. So I ended the class with a average grade and this bothers me, is she teaching and grading work ethic or art? I was there for the art and I thought my artistic abilities were well enough but I just didn't get the grade.

- Thinks work ethic sucks

I like It! I think the way you high lighted the lower eye makes a statement about DT that we wouldn't other wise see. In a way your drawing is profound. I can't pin point why I feel that way when I look at it but I do get those feelings when I view the drawing. I like it!

You'll likely spend it on booze! :D
