fenice8 Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013
dear marta why are the hands so well done and the rest of painting so bad..heavy paintover ruins the painting..

but you don't paint over the hands heavily... giving the mistaken impression that this was painted from scratch..

please tell your public that you paintover photo graphic reference..honesty is the best policy..

birds are smudge and blur in photoshop/painter..

Why do you insist on commenting this on every painting of hers? You have no proof these are "paint-overs", nor do you have a right to say they are. This is just plain ridiculous. I know I'm a little late on replying, but I couldn't help to defend this wonderful artist against your spiteful comments.
fenice8 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013
they look like paint overs specially the hands..and face

marta never reveals her a work of this kind you

do drawings and work out composition..i have seen no evidence of this

and there is a marked difference between perfect faces and hands and the naively painted background

i also think that her videos discourage young artists as it shows no preparation work at all

except for the appearance of a body or face from nothing..

marta dahlig is only in ger 20s but i have never seen her draw anything

if she showed her refs i may alter my opinion

(deviant art allows opinion and comments on artwork your welcome to disagree) ..

i may point out it is rather easy to fool the untrained eye

to go from photoreal to something that lacks even the basics on the same artwork me reservations..

by the way i am an illustrator of forty years experience in traditional and digital art..

and i am aware of the ways digital art can be manipulated to do something which is essentially

a photomontage blurred and smudged in photoshop..

p.s. i am not being spiteful..marta was also questioned in a forum about showing her photrefs

as she said she used no other have asked the same question..otherwise i like some of martas

artwork and have no problems with it..

hope this helps best wishes..

I agree, they are obviously paint-overs.

Look at the likes of dark-spider and Enayla, all very similar styles and ALL scam artists, accused (and proven) that they rip off photos and other artists works.

Dahlig may not have been officially caught out yet but she will be. And the worst part is that these are really bad paint overs, look like smudged photos, I'd hate to see how much her quality fell if she actually tried to paint something from scratch.

I love this picture and think it's personal . I don't care about the stone. It's a gorgeous picture.
Hanan-Abdel Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2012
I think someone has stolen your art and is getting credit for it
not only that, they cropped it and turned it backwards
at least they should of put the name of who made it
you should copyright your art missy;) [link]

Witam !
Chciałam tylko zapytać (tak dla własnego spokoju...)
czy Twój 'art faktycznie dostał od Ciebie "permission" na
użycie ... ja osobiście strasznie to tempie więc szukając
swoich prac widzę też "Wasze" :
