Farewell Summer...!

Tue Sep 16, 2014, 9:52 AM


 The summer is almost over so I wanted to do a
memoir of all the beautiful flowers that made me so happy this summer,
to share my passion with you guys,

I also went and visit the galleries of my dear friends
and added some of their  summer photography only of (2014) in this journal:)

It is the first time that I feature my own photos in a journal.
I hope not to be perceive as egotistical I just wanted to say
farewell to a big reason for my summer smiles,
and immortalized their beauty for all to see:)

Thank you for viewing, my dearest friends:)

Stock & Resources


Premade Backgrounds are a popular resource for both stock providers and artists. They can become a wonderful learning tool for beginner artists, or those simply seeking a bit of inspiration. They also can be a source of uncertainty if certain protocols are not followed.


What you need to know about Premade Backgrounds:




What they are:



- They are the photo-manipulations of the Stock & Resources world. They typically consist of two or more images that allow for adaptation and redistribution that are properly credited.

- They must be at least 1000 x 1000 pixels. They also need to be usable and available for other artists to include in their finished art piece.


They must come from resources that allow adaptation and redistribution:



- Your own photographic (etc.) resources.

- Other stock providers who give permission to use their images for premade backgrounds.

- Some public domain images. Note: Not all “public doman” images allow for adaptation and redistribution. Some still require direct link source crediting, as well. (i.e. wikicommons)


They MUST NOT include:



- Images from websites such as sxc.hu/freeimages.com, dreamstime, depositphotos, getty, istockphoto, etc. This includes any pay to download sites. Most purchases do not include exclusive rights for redistribution. These sites often have non-redistribution clauses in their EULA.

- Images from Google, Celebrities, movie screen shots, or other potentially copyrighted materials.

- Resources from providers that otherwise do not allow redistribution in whole or in part.


They must:



- Have their original sources credited in the artist’s comments area. This includes your own images and images from other sources.


Here is a statement from the Help Desk regarding Premade Backgrounds:



” Premade backgrounds fall under the same copyright rules as any submission to deviantART, that is you must either have created it entirely through your own means or you must have permission to use any materials you did not create.

With premade backgrounds being distributed as a resource if they do use materials created by others then they must comply fully with the license of that image. If a stock image does not allow redistribution in part, whole or as part of a larger piece then it must not be used as part of a premade background.

deviantART policy is that you must document any sources you use in your creations and we strongly encourage direct linking to the source material. Deviations that do not provide reasonable documentation will first be addressed by volunteers and may be addressed by staff if further action is required.

Any user that uses stock and resources should always check carefully that they are not inadvertently infringing copyright or violating someones license. This is why we require documentation of source material. We would strongly advise that if a premade background does not cite its source material then it should not be used. Any deviations using invalid stock will be moved to scraps and the invalid stock scrapped or removed.”



Relevant Premade Background FAQ:





FAQ #809: What are deviantART's stock image guidelines?

FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?


TL;DR



Use sources that allow for redistribution. Credit your resources, including your own. Make sure it meets the minimum guide lines of 1000 x 1000 px.

What To Shoot

Tue Sep 16, 2014, 12:00 PM by NovelExpression:iconnovelexpression:

:iconprojecteducate:


Stock & Resources

It’s often easy to figure out what you want to shoot when you have a creative, artistic idea as inspiration - you are bringing to life your vision. However, as much as we would like it to be different, there is not always a market for our artistic visions outside galleries. Stock gives artists a way to distribute their works, though sometimes there is a bit of a limit as to what will be sellable to a wider market.

Creating stock doesn’t mean you have to give up all your creative aesthetic or ideals, but it may mean you have to alter them a bit in order to make them more appealing to potential buyers.  At Novel Expression, we had to figure out how to get the most out of our shoots to appeal to the largest number of buyers possible.  While it would be much more creative to shoot our models in various locations and fancy them up a bit with Photoshop, leaving the backgrounds clean and shooting with somewhat flat lighting gives our end user a clean palette with which to work.



novelexpression NX0974 by NovelExpression



If there is something in particular you enjoy shooting or illustrating, do a bit of research and see if there is a site or company that distributes that type of work. There are numerous niche agencies out there for all types of topics, so you might find the perfect home for your work. However, if you are looking to get in with some of the bigger, more general agencies, you might have to make some concessions. 
YA Briana0830 by NovelExpression



First, find something that is missing in the existing collections.
Stay away from things that are common and find something unusual. Do you like to shoot flowers? Flowers and landscapes are beautiful, but they are very popular to shoot so make sure you find something that makes it stand out from what exists or shoot something in a unique way. 

How about food? It’s currently a very popular subject, but there are still some areas that can use imagery. When I did the occasional food shoot, I found there was a lack of regional dishes and international foods. I found the vegan market was lacking imagery, as were various cuisines such as Persian, Salvadoran, and Peruvian. I was able to make some lovely, marketable images and still stick with my enjoyment of shooting food.

If you can find the magic intersection between what inspires you and what might appeal to someone looking for stock imagery, then you are getting closer to turning your creative passion into a possible source of income.

Hi everyone! This journal features :iconmerl1ncz:merl1ncz and :iconjjpeabody:jjpeabody! :wave:

Interview with :iconmerl1ncz:merl1ncz



Armory by merl1ncz

A bit about your background. I noticed you do Concept Art, Illustration and Fine Art. Which one did you start out with? And is there any particular favourite one? How long have you been an artist, how long have you been studying?

Well, I was really into drawing since my early childhood. It was always the thing enjoyed the most. And I can't really tell which one did I start with. I always did all of them simultaneously and in my case, it doesn't make any difference anyway. Concept Art, Illustration, Fine Art. It's about visual language and rules are very similar to me.
I've been officially studying fine arts for 5 years know. This year is my final.


I noticed you have speed paintings in your gallery. What is the benefit/importance of speed painting in concept art? How doe's that help you decide your final piece? Or are they simply 'left' in that state of incompleteness as pieces of art in their own right?

Speedpaintings are artworks done in one session and usually under one hour - at least as I see it. They are important, because you can learn how to convey your ideas quickly and with limited means. It's crucial skill to learn for any artist.
I usually make series of quick sketches for clients to choose from in the beginning of every commission. You don't want to spend 2 hours on a sketch that will be rejected so that skill really comes handy here.
When it comes to deciding when the painting is done, it really depends on each artist. Someone likes to have his image polished whereas other prefers to have them rough and sketchy.

Long Journey Ahead by merl1ncz

Where doe's your inspiration come from in your concept art?

Mostly from things I have seen or experienced. I can't stress enough how important it is to base your art on your own world. I see many aspiring artist just copying things they see in movies, games, or in other artworks. Problem with that is that it's really easy to see who painted something he knows personally and who just recycled art of others.
Good example is how you treat light and colors in your painting. I spent countless hours observing weather and light and I can recognize quite quickly who knows and who doesn't - who took their time to learn how it really works and who just copies photographs. So be aware of that.
Golden piece of advice here: Go out, get to know the stuff you want to paint and then paint it. You can't be true to yourself if you just gather ideas on the internet.


Is Photoshop the main software you use then drawing Concept Art? Is there any other software you have used? And what would you recommend for learning artists?  Know a cheap/free software for newbies that is good for concept art?
I've always been using photoshop and I'm not familiar with any other software. But I do use all kinds of traditional media for sketching, studying and even for making finished artpieces. So this would be my advice: don't stick only to digital media but get your hands dirty too. :) (Smile)

Waiting for the End by merl1ncz


I have read about your Traditional and digital technique featured in some of your work. Doe's knowing Fine Art and Illustration, even photography effect your concept art work? Doe's oil painting or illustration have any play in concept art?
Yeah, absolutely.
The stuff you learn when working with traditional media is something you will be applying all the time.
I, for instance, use my oil paintings and other sketches as direct references for further works. That is how I get the colors into my digital paintings. I capture them outside, in my plein air paintings, and then use them later in whatever work I want to do. That's what makes my approach different I guess - usage of my own real life paintings as reference for digital art.

A near future 2 by merl1ncz

Is there any advice you could give to learning artists? Not only with learning concept artists, you can include those studying for Fine Art or Illustration. Is there any learning materials, artists, books or references you would recommend?

Quite a few actually.
Learn everything about art history. Most of the problems you will ever face have already been solved by other artists.
Carry a sketchbook everywhere and observe.
3 Books I can't recommend enough are the Art Spirit by Robert Henri, legendary The Story of Art by Ernst Gombrich and Alla Prima by Richard Schmidt.
And if you are serious about being an artist, you have to live it. Practice every day, give most of your attention to art and be interested in everything related to art. Merge art and your life into one beautiful thing - and what can be more beautiful than spending your life exploring the world and making art along the way?

Interview with :iconjjpeabody:jjpeabody




Roses took over by jjpeabody

A bit about your background. Have you ever studied Art at school or University? Are you self taught?

My name is Jereme Peabody. I'm a software engineer, not a hired concept artist. While the idea to do this full-time is appealing, there's a couple of reasons why I don't pursue it. First, I get to create in my current career, I just use a different medium (code) so I still get that creative release AND I make good money doing it. Second reason, both careers have their ups and downs. I like art because you can label something as "finished". In software, it's never "finished". There's always some feature to add, something to fix, something to upgrade. Imagine working on the same image for years. As a professional in either career, you don't typically get a creative license to do what you want. When I do art on the side, I do what I want when I want and I make money doing it. It's a win-win-win for me.

Art is a great hobby that I'll continue to do long after I retire. What I do, I do for fun. I am self taught. I always did art in some form. I started with colored pencils and markers making horrible drawings. I always struggled to get the art out of me; nothing came easy. I moved up to sculpting and everything changed. I was pretty good at it, but I lacked the space to really pursue it because it was really dirty. Now, there's skulpy which some people on DA are gods in my opinion. In college, I tried my hand a yet another medium, oil paint. I was good at this. It didn't take that much effort to paint what you're seeing in the still-life. I took this skill to digital art where I continued doing still-life paintings from photos, but I wanted to create something that didn't exist. This, to me, was [and still is] very hard.

How do you become a concept artist? What appealed to you the most about being an artist?

First, be a student of everything. You need to know to paint so many materials; it's not just learning the basics. Second, be good at the art that you do and people will seek you out.

Seriously, I don't advertise myself except on DA. I always have some type of commission going on. I don't make a lot of money to stop my full-time job, but I make enough to supplement my income and buy new big-boy toys like smart TV's, etc.

Iceland by jjpeabody

I noticed your gallery, you focus on landscapes a lot. Are the landscapes based on actual places? Or are they worlds you created?

They are worlds that I create. I find it easier (after a lot of landscape studies) to invent something that doesn't exist than to change something that already exists. I will, however, use reference and sometimes overlay stock in my images to achieve the look that I want.

In your gallery you have realism works. Doe's drawing/painting from Still Life have any impact on your concept artwork? Is learning to draw from Still Life or drawing the actual world important to do first before moving into conceptual artworks?

Good question. While I started with still-life first, I don't think it benefited me. Mostly because no one said, pay attention to how the plastic is reflecting light, look how light reflects differently from that surface to this surface. It was a simple process to just paint what I saw. Now, I still do still-life's, but on a smaller scale to understand the subject that I'm painting.


Where doe's you inspiration come from in your work?

The more studies and experimentation you do, the better you become. Each becomes a new tool in your toolbox. If you study and paint a beat-up toolbox, you'll learn it and when contemplating what to do with an android, you'll be able to apply those same techniques. They become your ideas. You need to have many ideas.

What is the main software you use then drawing Concept Art? And what would you recommend for learning artists? Know of any cheap/free software for newbies?

I use photoshop 6. I tried other programs for a while, but I found them hard to use. Photoshop 6 is on the cloud and you can basically "rent" for $19.95 a month. I easily make enough to cover this little expense each month. The digital still-life paintings that I did were done on a cheap tablet. Now, I've invested in a Cintiq. Don't buy the cintiq until you're ready though.

Fantasy Adventure by jjpeabody

What would you consider the fundamentals for painting concept art? What is the process you usually go through when starting a piece of work?

Chaos. I always start with chaos in black and white (values). I've tried other ways, but this just seems to be my method. I have some brushes that I made that are Silhouette brushes. It makes a bunch of random shapes on the canvas. In these shapes, I [hopefully] see all the studies that I've done in the past. I begin to pull those shapes out. Once you have the idea, you can move to line-art to further define your form, or continue painting.

Is adding details important in Concept art? For example, comparing your 'Castle Garden WIP' to the final 'Castle Garden'. How doe's adding little details affect the whole piece? Why add those details?

Details are subjective, but they add realism and life. When I look at those images you indicated, something is missing. You get this feeling when you look at the WIP. Don't ignore those feelings. If you look at something and it doesn't look right, most likely, it IS off. I don't plan out these images. These images dictate themselves through the use of my toolbox. If my toolbox is empty, so are my ideas.

Do you use a limited colour palette? I notice you practice with values. For example, your 'Old Mill (Values)' and 'Rough Sea (Values)'. Is there any benefit in working in grey-tones first then moving on to colour? Or do you simply start with colour first?

I started doing values first because I was hitting a roadblock. When I'm searching for ideas, using color hinders this process for me. It's easier to generate ideas from values.

Healing Springs by jjpeabody

Is there any advice you could give to learning artists? Is there any learning materials, artists, books or references you would recommend?

For books:
"Color and Light" by James Gurney is by far my favorite.
"Imaginative Realism" by James Gurney
