Please Critique My Disaster Drawings! (WARNING: Buildings die!)

Hello!

Well, I have three big passions: Airplanes, Buildings, and Movies. Going to the 3rd, one of my favorite genres of movies is disaster movies, and for some reason, I love seeing buildings being constructed, I love watching airplanes being made, but I also love watching buildings, cities, planes, and other manmade objects being blown to pieces, as morbid as that sounds as long as it's fiction, meaning that I do NOT love September 11th. I've been called a future terrorist for these drawings, but I've also been called a true artist for creating these drawings that are so different, and so detailed. My inspiration comes from the 4 Air Disaster book's illustrations. Please critique on which you think is the best one! I'd greatly appreciate it. Like I say, I've gotten a lot of good critique, but I've also gotten a lot of name calling, so I'm pretty much prepared to handle anything you throw at me. Remember, I'm only 15, and I haven't had much experience with drawing, so be kind!

[b]Tornado:


Tidal Wave:


ABSURDITY!


Plane Crash (Collision):


Meteor Shower:


I think I may deserve a lot of crap for Meteor Shower, as it highly resembles 9/11, and I definately see it.

Anthony

I like them.

Have you seen "The Science of Sleep"? Maybe you could sell them to a calender company.

HOLY SHIT. Those are pretty fucked up. I like the "Absurdity" the best, if I had to pick one....only because it's like the sampler platter at Denny's. A little bit of everything.

I also like Absurdity. My advice: just draw what you want. Remember,there's no such thing as tasteless art.

btw like I said months earlier, your avatar is awesome

A Denny's Grand Slam is not what first came to mind when I saw "Absurdity".

You should find a nice head doctor Boise and ask for their opinion on your drawings.

They're not entirely morbid, and the irony is in how you drew them, very soft, and cute. I have morbid drawings, if you ever want to see those.

A 15 year-old can be forgiven for drawing pretty much anything. I once drew a picture of a TWA plane crashing in flames - a couple of months before TWA Flight 800 crashed after leaving JFK (upon which were a teacher from my high school and his wife).

You can always say you're going to major in computer animation or such. Then some day you'll be paid to scare people.

Absurdity is the least bothersome viscerally although I'd have added a giant Pac-Man or other out-of-context image in the background.

absurdity!!!

i saw some posters at a university bookstore about 10 years ago, a series called "New York disasters" or something...they were all surreal, and not really too grim or serious looking (besides the massive doom.) "manhattan tidle wave" and "manhattan twister" were the two i remember; of course, this was pre 9-11, but i'd still like to find some and put on the wall.

I also draw pictures of total chaos, it's completely normal. I'll agree with everyone here, Absurdity is best. The red pencil really brings out the madness of the drawing.

nice drawing, just hope you school isnt a bitch about them I am fairly sure some of them would be enough to get you tossed out of some schools.

I really like Tidal Wave I think it looks cool, and I like how the fargo building from Boise is in there
