"A successful work of art should have color and love. Shapes and nature."

I pick this because it would make a picture look more realistc and crazy at the same time.

The art work isnt bad it looks really odd but i like it is really colorful.I like that he has a long face. It looks like if his eyes were taken out and maybe thats why he is sad.

A successful work of art should be very detailed. The artist needs to compose their work in a unique style and must make their art different from what has been done before. The art must have good use of tinting and shading to give his art different tones.

#2
I think that this piece of art was a good attempt at great work and had a good idea, but isn't good at all. I don't like how there is no background. The hole where his eyes are also confuses me.

A successful work of art should be detailed and precise unless it is abstract. The artist should know what art is and should use the guidelines of art in their piece.

This painting is not very good because it does not have any background and it doesn't make sense. It isn't detailed and the colors don't match up. If it was more abstract and had a background it might have been better.

Part 1
A successful work of art should have colors and details. The artist should make the picture look real if that is how it is supposed to be. Everything in the world has color so everything in the picture should also have color. The elements of color make the artwork look better of fuller than it does without any color.

Part 2
I think that the artwork is good. It doesn't look real, but the artist probably didn't want it to. The picture has very good color and is detailed in many ways. The features and the outfit of the person in the painting is detailed enough, but it could have had a nice background to make it look even better than it does right now.

I think that a successful work of art should have effort. A purpose is why you created it and who is this art work for. The art work should also have a subject and use space.Both negative and positive.He should also u color and shape.To fully create a piece of good art work.

The piece of art work before me by my definition is a successful piece of work. The piece uses color and shape both negative and positive. The space between the eyes. Yellow and green are colors.This is a good work of art.

A successful work of art should show the artists emotions and their feelings. Once that is displayed normally a hint of color, line and shape really complete the art... whether it's abstract or realistic. The art (in my opinion) should be simplistic, and not to complicated... following the KISS principle... (keep it simple stupid)

In my opinion, The piece of art shown is not entirely beautiful, but it's not entirely ugly. In my own opinion, I don't think art should be classified between ugly, beautiful, weird... etc. etc. The story in which this art depicts, maybe about the mother who gave her son 2 shirts, Is absolutely great. I think that the lines are simple, they used great color and they really had the concept of the story down... maybe the DEEP blue was a little harsh, but it's still a nice piece of art. personally, I wouldn't mind having that art hung in my house.

To me, successful artwork is using certain elements of art in creative ways. For example, it has to have a good supply of maybe shading or shapes. The final touch to successful artwork is personality of the artist, this shows who the artwork was by because of its originality.
The piece Blue Meanie is good art because of its originality, shading, and form. It has an effect on you that makes you want to enjoy its features.

A successful work of art should have a lot of detail, and should use colors that fit the picture like using background colors and accurate colors or complementary colors in the art work, and it should draw attention to the main thing.

Part 1: A successful work of art should show your feelings and I think for a successful work of art shouldn't be thought of too hard it should just come to you.

Part 1 A successful work of art should have originality and creativity so that its not a type of artwork that another person has already done. The artist should have some mastery in shape and boldness of color. Most importantly, a person has to believe that his artwork is good

Part 2 I think that it is good artwork because the artist boldly developed the colors and used a unique version of shape to outline the person. It also has evidence of creativity in the painting.

part 1. "a successful work of art should have a meaning. if you look at a painting or and a drawing you may say this is a good piece of work. but as you are looking at it you are thinking, why did this person draw this. and you want to know the meaning. if you ask my opinion i would say a drawing should have a meaning.

part 2. this picture is not bad because, if you were to draw a big shape on a some paper thats art. but to actually make a face that look like it has feeling in it, is a great piece of art.

Part One: A successful work of art should have 100% effort. the Artist should try there hardest. Use as many colors as possible Add add great detail, do not slack off and just throw any thing down on the paper.

Part Two: I think this artwork is great. It shows a person being sad. He is blue which most times means sad and his facial expression looks
bored or sad. The only thing wrong with the artwork is he is ugly, and has an crazy looking mouth.

1) A successful work of art doesn't have to have a source material. Even without it, artists could still be able to successful artwork. A successful work of art should also have a lot of detail, because without detail, the artwork would most likely look plain. A successful work of art should also have at least some creative aspects of it.

2) This piece of artwork is somewhat good, because it has consistent shading. I could easily tell the light source is probably coming from the top right corner, due to the shading. However, there is little detail in this piece of art, so it's pretty plain.

A successful work of art should...........come from your experiences, what you feel, or your past feelings. Art can not be judged by others, because they don't know what the artist has been through or is thinking. That is what i think a good piece of art should be.

1.) A successful work of art should be able to catch someone's eye from a distance. Art that is out of the ordinary keeps people interested, and makes them want to look deeper. Strange color combinations and new types of art styles are a great way to keep someone interested, and is also a good way to express a feeling or opinion. And, after all, art is supposed to be about you, right?

2.) This artwork is defiantly a good piece of work. the second i saw it, i was interested by the exaggerated features and bright colors. This is a picture that could keep someone intrigued for a long time.

A sucessful work of art should have a lot of color (depending on what you're drawing or painting) and cover most of the page. It shouldn't look like a 7 year old drew or colored the art. Sorta like don't just go through the motions. Progress.

A successful work of art should have lots of color and no blank space. The artwork should look like the artist took more than 10 minutes to complete. The page should be filled up with colors and the shapes should be clearly defined. The coloring should be within the lines and it should be bold and it should look thick.

Part 2

I think that this artwork is good but also very weird. The drawing is better than anything I could ever do. The colors blend well and the coloring is bold and thick.
The picture is weird and the person looks sad but overall the picture is good.

1. A successful work of art should have somewhat of an idea of what is going on or who it is in the painting or drawing. Also a successful work of art should have good color that goes along with the painting or drawing.

2. I think it is a successful work of art because it has many colors even if the colors don't show how the person is feeling it shows u can tell how he feels because his face is blue and his lip is drooping a little. Also if the colors don't show how he feels pacaso use to pain like this all the time and people knew what he was trying to show in his paintings.

He/She should be able to show their viewers what the meaning of the artwork is.The artist should have a rough draft of their work before having a final that way they know if changes should be added or taken away.

2)This artwork is good. It shows face expression. He looks like he's depressed and thats why he's a meanie. The color of his shirt being green and yellow with a black and red tie. It seems that he doesn't care about his appearance to others going along with the blue face of his.

Part I:A successful work of art should...show great emotion. Portray how the artist is feeling, give us an idea of his life. It should show detail, and be unique. It should prove to its viewers time was spent on it. If one has taken care of it as if it was the most precious thing to them. It needs to show that the artist cared for it and is proud to let the world view it.

Part II: This art is spectacular. It has all the qualities that tell us it is good. It is abstract and though I do not like it that much it is a good piece of Art.

Part 1
A successful work of art should be done with the greatest amount of effort. If the artist puts a great amount of effort, it doesn't matter if it looks odd or weird. Each Piece of artwork appeals to different types of people. Many pieces of artwork consist of a portrait of an old person. The piece of artwork could appeal to the critics, but not to the public. Also, the vice versa could be true.

Part 2
The piece of artwork in the blog link called "Blue Meanie" Is good in my opinion. It is a piece of abstract artwork in my opinion, representing cruelty in my society. The artist also should have added a little something for the background in my opinion. The Shape and texture of the shirt looks almost real. If you are looking for How the piece is done, i think it is good. If you are looking for concepts, that is an opinion.


It's up to you to decide.

I think that a successful work of art should be able to show how much time and work the artist put into the piece and also it should be able for people to understand. If people do not understand the piece they might think that it is ugly and won't want to buy it. Also I think that for a successful work of art it shouldn't just be put together in five minutes.

I think that art work in the picture that was showed to us isn't that great. It shows some nice qualities like neatness and colors but you can't understand the picture just by looking at it, which I think is important. Also I do not think it is good because it is trying to show two different concepts in one piece, by having bright happy colors but also having a man with blue skin who is frowning. I think that they could have worked a little bit more to try to make this piece better and not as plain instead of the way it is.

I like the colors. However, the face is really weird and I probably wouldn't want it hanging in my room. Overall I might give this painting a 5 out of 10. So basically this is a half-decent piece of artwork.

Part One:
A successful work of art should stand out. The best art, to me, is when it is different in some way. It doesn't have to make sense to anyone besides the artist themselves to be beautiful or good. All art is successful because it is a reflection of who the artist is or how they were feeling.



Part Two:
I think that this is good art. It is not beautiful, and I actually don't think it's nice to look at, but it is good art because it is showing something. There is obviously some meaning behind it. It is interesting how it looks like it's just a mask or something, with weird cloth draped over a body. It's weird, but very artistic and different in the way that the artist did the details of the face and clothes.

Part One

The way I see it, a successful work of art should have extreme detail and you should be able to feel the emotion or thought within the piece.

Part Two

This is a good piece of art because it makes you think. Does the yellow and the green represent a split personality? As in green for sadness and yellow for happiness. The sagging in the man's face and the pout on the lips clearly shows that he is sad on the outside, but maybe he is having a happy party in his head. To me, his missing eyeballs may leave him clueless. As in he may not be able to show the right expressions for the right emotions.

I think that this is a beautiful piece of artwork, not my particular style but still good art. It probably did take time and effort. I like colors and this painting defiantly has color. Some paintings are strange like this one but they are still good.

Pt. 1

A successful work of art should be expressive. It depends on the person for what to them is "successful", but it should be unique and true to them as far as the piece is concerned. Art is for expression, so anything that effectively gets your point and feelings across is a good piece to me.

Pt. 2

I think the painting is good. It's kind of depressing actually, but it kind of makes me laugh. One thing that kind of stands out to me is how there are mainly bright colors all over the painting, but it still finds a way to be...morose; since bright colors are usually associated with happiness.

#1- a successful work of art should be your way,showing how you feel. you can do this by using your favorite materials and color and by just expressing how you feel on a piece of paper. (sad,happy,so-so ect...)

i think it is good work because you can add so much to it even with your imagination. it can even remind you of someone.

Part 1
A successful work of art should be very neat and detailed. I think it is important to have detail added to a picture because it makes the picture seem more realistic and more life-like. Neatness is always a great thing to make your picture look clean and professional.

Part 2
This piece of artwork is a good piece of work because, although it may not look the best, that probably is the style of work the artist was trying to do. The picture is neat , detailed and looks as if the person put a lot of work into it.

Part 1
A successful work of art should have lots of thought and creativity. I believe that an artist should have a lot of thought put into his art because it will make it look neat and like he/she spent a lot of time on it. Creativity will make it look original and interesting.


Part 2
I like this painting because it is very interesting and colorful. it looks sloppy and weird at first, but after you look at it for a while, it is very appealing. This must be the type of art this artist had in mind when creating this piece.

A successful piece of art should be whatever an artist feels when he makes it. It should have a background even if its just a color.When a background is white it does not make someone want to look at it. it should have creativity to. it should be something different.
#2
i don't think the artwork is bad i think it is a little dull though.It should have a background. i like the person in the piece it is interesting and weird but it really needs a background.

#1: A succesful piece of art should show what the artist wanted to express. This way other people will understand it better.

I believe that this will ensure that the artist spends lots of time and effort, so the song, dance, picture or sculpture has more depth.

#2: I believe that the artist was attempting to show sadness causing bitterness by giving him a long face, and blue skin. However the painting has little detail and no background. It seems as if little effort was used. :P

A work of art doesn't have to be detailed or colorful to be successful because some people might like the drawing while others don't.

I think this painting is good because it's more of an abstract idea than a drawing

A successful work of art should take more than a day to make. No great piece of art can be truly made and perfected in one day. The piece can only be made solely by the artist, but it can be perfected only by getting the perspective of other artists and just regular people. Their ideas and thoughts are the key to having a "perfect" piece because a perfect piece is being liked by the majority of people.

#2

The pice of art on the webpage is good because it has vibrant colors, good image, and most importantly it has depth. It is quite good.

A successful work of art should have color and light . As much as art needs that, it needs a topic, a meaning. If you want other people to understand your feelings' you need to make it clear for them.

Part 2

This painting is OK because it has color, light and a meaning.

part 1: A successful work of art should show the persons style. Each artist has there own style that makes them unique and interesting. If everyones art had the same style i guess they would all be good, but would they be interesting, maybe not.

Part 2: I think this artwork all has different style. Each one of them is good in their own way witch makes them all absolutely amazing!

A successful piece of art should be well detailed, it should be easily interpreted and the idea should be clear. The idea should also be ex pressed in a colorful and unique way it should not be drab or colorless in any way whatsoever but it should certainly be creative it should NOT
be copied.

This is good artwork because whoever painted it obviously had a negative opinion of the subject (clear message) the blue skin interprets sadness the pupilless eyes sugests no feeling or reason the extreme edge and curve of the face or more particular, the frown, describes the overall feeling anger and sadness. The clothing not the shirt but the tie gives a buisness like aura to the charector a politition perhaps? or a particularly vicious buisnes man?

I believe a successful piece of art takes thought and hard work from the artist. They should also incorporate the elements of art and originality along with the artist's signature style. Many pieces of art are labeled "bad", but to me, they're only bad if the artist put no effort and thought into it.

"Blue Meanie" piece of art has detail accompanied by vivid colors and abstract/surrealistic ideas. In my view, "Blue Meanie" is a great piece of art because the artist would've made a regular person in blue in a regular place but instead he/she chose to discriminate from the way actual people look and left the eyes and background blank. I think the blank eyes that the "Blue Meanie" has no emotional thoughts and is part of reason he is called a "meanie", his blue tinted and shaded skin is what first made me think about why the artist would create such a abnormal art work.

a succesful work of art should realate to something that alot of people can agree with. like an historical or sport event.

im also not a big fan of this art work but i love the creative colors and how u can tell exactly how the artist felt when he/she made it.

"A succesful work of art should have alot of detail and color."

I think this because whenever i look at art i always think its a nice and interesting picture when its filled with detail and color.

I think this piece of artwork is average because it is interesting but it doesnt have alot of detail and color.
