I have a question.
i just placed a poll about my personal site: omrikoresh.com/

i designed it myself and i like it personally but i didn't have a lot of feedback about it.
care you look at it for a second and tell me your personal opinion? i saw a lot of artists have WHITE for a background
but i placed a dark gray... and i'm not sure if the categories/overall look and such are "correct" and look professional enough,
i need to seem as a serious artist for the unsuspecting eye.

Thanks if you'll help me out!
Omri (:
i got another DD!
thank you guys,

Jonah's Torment by OmriKoresh



i added some more folders into my gallery so everything will be more comfortable for you people.
the poll said i should so i did (:

thank you!
for all the B-day wishes,
thank you!! (:
hey! well i thought that i didn't write about myself in a while so... why not!
first- VC: Memnoch the devil, i still didn't decide if i should continue it but i'll know on friday, i have a long drive then and i'll go at it, i'll update you guys,
thanks for all the advice!

secondly about a year ago my dr. told me that i might become diabetic if i won't loose some extra pounds and stop eating sugar.. i'm not a fat person but, oh well, genetics.. 
so i started working out, i go to the gym, i do whatever those monstrous big bulgy hot men aka coaches tell me to do.. i wish it was that sexy.. but today i got really dizzy and i realized i didn't really eat today
because i'm working on this huge chair and it's to intense that i forgot to eat! (you can see progress and stuff on my FACEBOOK )

my main focus is to be more and more engaged in traditional work,
my last paintings are currently in LA with my brother who's sniffing around galleries and stuff, i hope for the best.

... anyway if you guys noticed i'm uploading more traditional work,
it's not as popular but i'll upload all my traditional work anyway, i barely work in digital.
i have no real use for it unless it's commissioned. i love creating book covers and stuff but my main work is traditional.
i'll probably make more Alice art in the future don't worry (:

- i'm also working on a graphic novel, some of you know what it's about (hello beta testers) and i'm writing 2 more volumes... but it will take a while until the writing is done for reviewing.
- i'm starting to work on my next painting series, it will be something like jewish-POP-thingie combined with sci-fi / old school horror

besides i finished my degree and i hope that me and my BF will move out soon to our own place, we are together for 2.5 years and going strong! it's fantastic!
that's it for now!

ok i read about 187 pages, some spoilers ahead if you didn't read it.... don't!
am i the only one that thinks this book from the series sucks?

i read the first three books a long time ago and i decided to read the rest of the series,
i read "the body thief" i liked it, it had some awesome moments but this one? "memnoch the devil" i mean,
i don't give a shit about this Dora girl and i found lestat not being HIMSELF! Lestat has a tendency of being a self illusionist- a lot of times he talks himself into things and situations but at the end there's some kind of regret or reminiscences or something but in this book it felt like:

he spoke to her for a moment, he acted unlike his vain-pain-filled-soul and then "i love dora" and there's no real emotion! he describes her as a beautiful girl but, unlike Gretchen from the previous book he doesn't describe her character, she's very boring. and as far as i know Lestat doesn't like skinny boned girls, he even described a beautiful girl in the earlier book as "unnecessarily skinny" no curves etc, he didn't like it. when he talked to roger, i liked the conversation but i hated the fact that it's a fucking ghost- it felt sloppy and reductive. roger had more emotion but he was too a flat character.

i loved the ordinary man, but most of the time, the whole text felt like it's empty, nothing happened, a lot of describing random things, lestat is stuck inside of his mind, acting like he got his period coupled with too many thoughts that go all over the place with no basic concept.
...at the start of the book something is following him and i immediately understood it was the devil- because of the book title.

i like the concept of lestat visiting god and the devil but it's written poorly so it's not the religious concept.
i have no clue what the hell happened in this book but i'll read the next one, let's hope it's better, if not- NEXT!

do you agree? have you read it?

BTW Prices are Before discount!


i'm selling it through my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/omrikoreshart
if anyone is interested please write me here or there!
i have a question, does anyone know what's the best posting time to DA? at what hour / day?
Ok am i the only one that is going nuts over this thing?
i keep trying to upload images to place them as prints later on but I CAN'T it keeps saying that it has bugs or whatever! 
ahhh it's driving me nuts, anyone has similar problems?

hey! i had another photography session, this time with a friend

the whole session is at my blog: omrikoresh.blogspot.co.il/2013…



but i'll post here two pics, just because i like 'em.

ONE of the pictures
she hated her freckles, i think they are hot.
ONE of the pictures
i'm used to having weird dreams, it's not something out of the ordinary but this one was SO out of the box i just don't get it! anyway hopefully i'll remember it all but i'm warning this is LONG! and i didn't re-write it so it must be written not that great:

it started when my dad bought a building to live in and fix it, he's a contractor, and the apartment he picked for me came with furniture.
there used to be an old couple in the apartment I got, so there were a lot of tiny dolls/china/porcelain dolls of cats, smily cats, even some made of wood.
my dad showed me the apartment, asked me if it's all right, i said it's just fine and after looking around the apartment, seeing that it's filled with tons of dark wood classic furniture and huge long drapes on each window, including the porch.

i decided to rid myself of most of the stuff, it made me uncomfortable.. i loved the old classic furniture but it made everything unnecessarily old.
as i was about to grab one of the smiling cats ugly wood carvings, a friend of mine called me and she said she's outside the building. i wasn't surprised, i get random visits always.
i went down the spiral stairs of the building, got to the bottom, opened the front door, said hello and had a small chat on random stuff, weirdly enough she somehow parked in the middle of the lobby, which wasn't all that nice, all made of filthy concrete.

while we talked these guys kept popping in the building, around 3-4 asking where is "winston" so we both decided it's probably a clothing store that was closed after my dad bought the place.
they said the place was cheap and stuff so we thought maybe it was like the red cross or something.
after a while she asked what is in this building? i said i have no idea and told her that we should find out.
we started walking around the lobby, which was very big, here and there some graffiti on the walls.
down some stairs, up some, left right, don't remember.

eventually i lost her. i called her name, i couldn't even hear her. i saw the more i walk the more the place has graffiti, on purpose, the walls were colored black and the graffiti was neon. like this place used to be a club or something. there was even a large empty square place thing, so it really looked like a club.
i went up some stairs, all the time i went down so perhaps if i'll go up i'll find her..
up the stairs, walked straight ahead and i got to a dead end hallway, i turned back to go where i was and then i noticed,
the walls shifted. the walls shifted constantly, i just couldn't see it before.

i thought "Oh Fuck" and started walking forward, i then i saw a bar. tiny bar, with some yellow candle light, something out of a LOTR movie with lots of strange people.
i thought i'll ask them how do i get out of here. so i got in the bar, everything ordinary but then i saw that those strange people i met... were not exactly people, some were zombies, vampires, i don't know what else, but it was fucking scary. it's not like the vampire movies when they are extremely creepy or beautiful, no, they looked like ordinary ugly people with shiny eyes and a stare that you know they can break you in two.
zombies overall freak me out, no clue why they were in a bar but they came in REALLY close and i was petrified, i froze.

this girl looked at me, she sat on the bar, she told me "take a cigarette" i understood the clue it was like "Blend in, be cool", i suppose that was "winston" place, a cigarette pun?!
i snatched one of her cigarettes light it up and started pumping. i was so afraid my body was shaking and i as moving like a robot that is trying to smoke.
i told her i needed to get out of there, NOW, i don't want to be lunch.

she said that i need to cool down.. something something, don't remember but then surprisingly enough, while i was looking that none of these creatures is getting too close,
i saw my mom! wearing a black mini dress, looking beautiful, like always.
i called her, i told her i want to go home, she said no problems, she just needs the bathroom and we are off.
i went with her, those things kept looking at me, if it was sexual it would of been cool but it wasn't. it was hunger.

she went in for a minute, got out, wearing a white short jacket with a white mini dress.
i didn't understand how she got the cloths- she only had a tiny bag with her, but i didn't care, i just wanted out.
she went to the sink- above them were pictures of old people, next to the mirrors, she took out a huge white marker and tarnished the picture of the old woman there,
like a kid.

i woke up.
today, i showed all the work i want to present in my final BFA exhibition.

and i know more or less how i'd want the gallery to look like (floors/walls/light etc) and what i want to exhibit,
i have it arranged in my mind...
last week i had a lot of arguments on, basically, everything... how i work (none of their business) i want to take some time off before the exhibition they said i need to work until the last minute, that i can't transfer the stuff from my house to the school because i don't have the funds to do so. basically they think money grows on trees.
and lastly that i'll might have to share a space with an another crappy artist... although the school is pretty huge and we are a very small group /:

today they suggested that i'll put a GLASS BOX around my objects.
like a display window and because they say i'm hard headed and i don't listen and i pretty much take a dump on other people's opinions
which is somewhat correct but not that extreme. i just know my opinion is what counts, until someone will convince me otherwise. my show- my decisions.

i totally faked it and said i will think of it and showed overall interest.
but really,
WTF? why the hell should i do that?
that's moronic.

am i alone here having these kind of problems?!

and it's not the first time they give me a stupid idea and get mad at me for disagreeing.
morons. thank jehova i'm finishing this degree soon.

fuck'em.

Gleeks?

(if you are not hardcore Gleek, it's not for you)
wtf?

what happend to the all underdog theme?
in the first/second season it was great, the season when they all graduated- it was SO cheesy
and now it's a clusterfuck between the cool life in NY and some idiotic new kids in high school... that i don't find very interesting...
they look like stigmas.. walking around a place we already been... at the last 3 years of the show.
the older guys seem to pop up everywhere and have two lines each.

the songs.. i don't find them all that appealing, i love their singing but some of their newer covers- last season.. are kinda...
lame... i don't find most of the characters believable. yes it's a comedy and it's suppose to be fun but the story is lacking... really lacking... it feels like they are running out of ideas...

in the Glee Project (glee/reality/contest; winner gets to appear on the show) they picked twice the hot guy.
the first time it was rasta man- which he deserved it!! but the second time that new hot guy aka Blake Jenner as Ryder Lynn? that read that ridicules poem at the end? they all cried (writers, actors, etc) and i laughed at the top of my lungs. it was written bad and it was a total emotional manipulation.  they should of gone with the arab girl! that's a fucking story! and she was AS GOOD as him.

and NOW: SPOILER ALERT (if you didn't see the last episode)

they fired Sue.
wtf?
W T F ?
without Sue, telling Will how bad his hair looks today and that she can smell the tarts baking in the ovens of the little elfs that live in his hair.... there's no show.
AND if you noticed she didn't get a lot of screen time on the show in general and she stopped being this funny hysterical hateful character that we all love, everyone is just too nice!

and WILL. Grow some balls.
really trying to get to know your fiancee over again? really? that's bullshit.

i won't watch glee again.
i'm tired of the show and i think it's too cheesy.
do you agree or not?

I didn't write anything personal for a while, i think it's about time.
i just turned 27, i Feel so old! i'm getting closer to 30 which people know that in gay years it's the equivalent to 60!
and about two weeks ago i got back from my yearly checkup and apparently i got sugar in my blood! the DR said i have to loose weight- not that i'm fat! (photos totally retouched) but i have to because of medical reasons and avoid sweets. period.

first medical meltdown, /: yay...

as stupid as this might sound my first reaction was "Oh! i might become Diabetic! OH NO! it means i'll have to go everywhere with a bag! and needles! i don't like going around with bags!" and only after two days the problem sunk in, my uncle died of this shit and his legs got cut off.. eww.

and guys, i'm starting to feel like i don't belong in DA anymore. things here look to me even more kitsch than in the past, i feel like my work is becoming too dark and mature for DA
i don't know what to do or if not to upload my real art here- but just the fanart, what do you think?

Sleeping Beauty by OmriKoresh:bigthumb349193280:

on the plus size i have a boyfriend! i asked for a ring after a month, and i'm still waiting.
we are together for a year and a half now, it's the only thing in my life that i'm pleased about.
school sucks- i have about three months or four until my exhibition! you guys will get pictures of course (:
i got a COOL CAMERA! a professional one from my brother as a Bday present- i don't know how to use it but finally i'll be able to photograph my things well
i'm dying to try it out and photograph some models.

i have 4 more oil paintings to create but i don't think i'll manage to be on time for the exhibition.
i live on a tiny island named Israel that is surrounded by some undemocratic countries that hate us
my art doesn't belong here, people here are stuck in the 70's which is 40 years ago.
i really want some money to get some work done! and to move out of the house already!

i think that is basically where i'm at currently.
ps watchers make sure to follow me outside of DA as well
