Nice pictures!

By the way - last picture got me wondering: is there any origami (folding-paper technique) for making a stone? A realistic looking one, of course crumplings do not count :stuck_out_tongue:

But it will take you a long time to fold 180 white and 181 black stones :crazy_face:

One of the earliest surviving painting (about 10th century AD) playing Go, and it looks like some kind of tsumego problem (or the earliest guess the missing stones with just black stones).

Alright, this is overkill, but I just drew this in response to this.

It doesn’t look like much, that’s because it’s sort of surrealistic and modern art-ish painting. That I did on my wacom tablet. Well I sketched a painting that I thought could be inspired by my go playing.

As you can see it’s about abstraction and shapes, and there are really only two colors against the background.
I’ve done quite a bit of painting in the past and studied art at college.

In my own appreciation of art, a good piece has to create emotion, not just reproducing.
And yours has that quality.

better when quotting the artist ;p
(and I know you usually do)

(I counted more than 400 images, but some of them may be variations or from other sources)

oh, really ? :open_mouth:

If you’re responding to my piece I’d like to add that it’s like a surrealistic automatic drawing that tries to uncover what is in the unconscious-- this is Go as seen through the lens of your insane unconscious mind.

Surrealism is an old artistic movement that’s fairly fascinating. Not being one of the in crowd followers of Andre Breton, I can’t really claim that’s a surrealistic painting. I mean I guess it might be.

They are beautiful, right?
…and you know what? Chidori made big prints of these for a tournament 10+ years ago, and the second one (the summer picture) was given to me by a friend back then…
I haven’t put it up in the apartment I now live in, but I guess I should take it out of the closet again and find a suitable place for it.

No like this time, how dare you keep it in a closet instead on a wall.
