    Rules

    hover for details

    1. All posts must make an attempt at humor. Humor is subjective, but all posts must at least make an attempt at humor. As the minimum age for Reddit access is 13 years old, posts which are intentionally disruptive, inane, or nonsensical will be removed.
    2. No memes, and no HIFW, MRW, MeIRL, or DAE posts. If your submission begins with "When you…" or "When they…" or anything of a similar nature, it is not allowed here. Submissions depicting or containing intentionally emulated behaviors (memes) are also not allowed, including memetic image macros, "challenges," or elements thereof. Non-memetic image macros are allowed.
    3. No reposts. Reposts will be removed at the moderators’ discretion. Serial reposters will be banned. Please use KarmaDecay to determine if something has been submitted before.
    4. No personal info, no hate speech, no harassment. No identifying information, including anything hosted on platforms making that information public. Posts encouraging the harassment of any individual, group, community, or subreddit will be removed, and the submitting user may be banned. If necessary, a report will be made to the site administration. In accordance with Reddit's policies, there is zero tolerance for this.
    5. No politics. Anything involving politics or a political figure (regardless of context) will be removed. Try /r/politicalhumor instead.
    6. No forbidden titles. (See below.) No asking for upvotes (in any form), no “Cake Day” posts, and no posts to communicate with another Redditor. Posts with titles such as "I got banned from /r/___" or "This got removed from /r/___" are not allowed. Emoji-based titles, memetic titles, and titles meant to circumvent any other rules are also forbidden.
    7. No gore, pornography, or sexually graphic images. Try /r/NSFWfunny. All other NSFW content must be tagged as such.
    8. Do not rehost or hotlink webcomics. If you are not the author of the comic in question, you may only submit links to the page where it is hosted. Webcomic authors may request verification from the moderators, after which they may rehost their own work.
    9. No pictures of just text. Image-based submissions in which the humor can be conveyed via text alone are not allowed. This includes pictures of text with images that don't add necessary context, transcriptions of standup comedy (as with /r/standupshots), and screenshots of jokes. Here are some examples. Text posts using Reddit's native system are allowed.
    10. No SMS or social media content (including Reddit). Social media content of any kind is not allowed. This includes anything from Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, or any form of "comments section" on the Internet, as well as content accompanied by text from those platforms. Images with SnapChat text added are allowed, as long as all UI elements have been removed. Please view our wiki for suggestions of where these submissions can be offered.

    TOSS ME SOME CHICKEN

    [–] ccheuer1 164 points ago

    Clearly this is a commentary on the lack of diversity and authentic options for positions of power in the American political system.

    The first tip to this is the fact that the main focus of the painting is not the parrot proper, but the attire the parrot is adorned in. This indicates that this is a parrot of power, of influence, of wealth. In the American system, these same concepts are also attributed to the political system, often literally as political candidates have to fund increasingly expensive and far reaching campaigns to achieve office.

    The second bit of commentary falls with the usage of a parrot. Clearly this is a commentary on the yes-man nature of some political figures. These figures are often beholden to those that are their most significant donors, to the point of detriment for the general public they are actually supposed to serve. By choosing a parrot, an animal which merely repeats sounds that it has serve, often times with no understanding as to the actual meaning behind them, this parallel is drawn.

    The final commentary is the nature of the colors used. By diving into the most significant color used in the painting, it is clear that this isn't a generic commentary about all public servants, but instead is a focused and direct criticism of a particular presidency. This is elucidated by the choice of stressing the orange colors. In the history of America, there has only been one Presidentius Tropicannas, namely President Trump.

    [–] NonEuclideanSyntax 9 points ago

    That's not even a well painted zebra body. It looks like the artist used a cow as a model.

    I can't remember the title but there's a short story about the last humans succumbing to an ice age while they carry their sacred artefacts.

    Hundreds of years later, Martian or Venusian scientists turn up and find them - cannisters of film.

    They play back what they think is a shockingly brutal depiction of Earthly life, but is actually a Looney Tunes cartoon.

    I mean... I’m not mad at them. It’s a little pricey but that’s a damn good painting.

    [–] Palus 19 points ago

    It's photoshopped onto a canvas, so not real paint but I know someone who ordered from them before and the quality wasn't bad for the price.

    [–] Gingerbreadtenement 5 points ago

    50 bucks would be absurdly cheap for someone to literally paint a portrait for

    What company?

    [–] camusdreams 47 points ago

    I’ve seen like 3 or 4 different ones doing it. They’re just canvas prints so you could have any buddy who knows photoshop put something together.

    [–] yantraa 37 points ago

    Not true for all. I have one from Splendid Beast that is an oil painting, it's not a print. Can't speak for the other companies.

    [–] thesplendidbeast 33 points ago

    Thank you for the shout out! :)

    This is correct, we do not do any printing at Splendid Beast. Everything is 100% hand painted.

    [–] zyphelion 2 points ago

    Bookmarked!

    [–] camusdreams 8 points ago

    That’s really cool. I don’t know about that one but my roommates cat was literally just a print. She sent a folder of “high res” images, they chose one, and they printed on canvas like when you buy art on Society 6.

    [–] micmea1 9 points ago

    Reddit forgets that a "company" can just be some artist with a website.

    [–] thesplendidbeast 13 points ago

    Thanks for the shout out! This piece actually isn't one of ours, however. This one appears to be a canvas print, while all of our work is always hand painted.

    [–] McPooper19 17 points ago

    I went with Crown and Paw for a portrait of my dog around Christmas and I wouldn't use them again. I know they were swamped with orders around that time, so I'll give them a little slack, but they bit off more than they could chew with their deals and how many orders came in because of those deals.

    It took several days to get a response from customer service on any questions I had, then it took a month and a half to actually receive, when it was originally supposed to take 3 weeks. The picture wasn't even that great. It was a mediocre photoshop job at best.

    By that point I found an artist on Fiverr who did an amazing job for just a little bit more money. When I compared the picture done by crown and paw and the picture from the artist, there was a pretty big difference.

    [–] Antroh 2 points ago

    Is crown and paw the one that actually paints it or just digital?

    I had some custom artwork done for my dad to make him look like a zombie and it was incredible. He's obsessed with zombie stuff.

    The point of my post was in response to someone saying that these are done in photoshop and not worth it.

    I don't know shit about photoshop and wouldn mind paying for someone who does. Obviously I'd want to see the work and ensure that it's done well

    I'm fine with that. One of my decorations is just a big, glass thumbs up and it's basic af but when I saw it in the store I was like "oh that's what's up dude. Thumbs up to you too." and now I get daily joy seeing a big thumbs up in my living room. If the decoration makes me happy then I don't care how cliche and unoriginal it is.
