    I have always done traditional representative art like this

    Then I decided to try something different and more whimsical, like this

    Which genre is the more appealing?

    I dabble in 3D digital art, and lean toward hyper-realism and surrealism.

    Personally I like the more traditional art, but many like the 'whimsical' style, so I guess it just depends on your audience. As an artist, go with what comes from YOU naturally, whatever genre it is........and let the crowds chase you instead of you chasing the crowds. Just sayin


    ps.......dogs & cats are always the attention grabbers :smile:

    Oooh TCL, you are very talented!
    They are both great, but at the moment I find the bottom one more interesting. It's fantastic!
    I've always preferred more traditional art, but modern/abstract is really growing on me.

    Thank you all for your opinion.

    I have a friend that specializes in hyperrealism. I'm not near that good.

    You have to squint a lot. :laugh:

    Your stuff is very good. Not into abstracts though.
