Concept Art or Illustration career?Concept Artists are usually used at the beginning of a project, a movie or a video game for instance.Concept Art or Illustration career?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
They are skilled at inventing characters, props, environments (exterior and interior), weapons, vehicles etc.
They are briefed first, and then (depending on the project budget) are expected to sketch/paint a number of rough idea's for the required design.
Once an idea has been chosen (by whoever is in charge of the art design) the artist will be expected to develop the idea into something less rough but with more detail.
Once the person in charge is happy, the design is then given to another artist such as a 3D modeler, a costume designer, a matte painter etc who will then 'build' the design to be used in a movie or video game.
Concept art is not important to the average consumer. Concept art is generally 'disposable' art. Usually it is only specialist artists who purchase concept art books that contain the art from a particular movie or game.
The Concept artist will most likely see hi

FABULOUS FRIDAY FEATURE
This week, I'm doing something a bit different. I've done so many wonderful themed features lately, I decided I'd have a bit of a sit-down this week and reflect a bit. So this week, I am going to feature three pieces each by artists I've been obsessed with lately around the site. But there are a LOT of deviants, so bear with me! There are plenty of different styles and media, so there should be something here for everyone. Next week, expect some winter madness! If you've got someone you think should be featured in next Friday's Feature, send me a note with a link to their gallery and I'll take a peek I'd also love to hear about other features, particularly themed ones. I'll list those in the bottom section to help spread the word! The same goes for contests or news articles!
Please favorite this journal and pass it on! And if you liked this

First Scene Previewhttps://vimeo.com/42477094First Scene Preview3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Phew. That lighting is hard. I think I will reserve it for more important shots.
Anyway, the first scene I've done of Fire Tiger vs Acid Panther. If anyone's curious.
I won't upload any more scenes, as I'd like the film to be at least a bit of a surprise.
Oh wait, I just realized there are a couple of frames cut off the end. Oh well, not missing much.

Already another month has passed. I am thoroughly amazed how quickly November came and went.
We had our first snow quite early this month, but today was a thick blanket on the streets and in the forests.
Due to time constraints and tiredness I do not sort the deviations I will share... I just throw them all together and hope that you will take the time to check them out.

What Makes Dark Art Dark?What Makes Dark Art, DarkWhat Makes Dark Art Dark?11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Dark art is an incredibly versatile genre. It can be mixed, mashed up, and paired with several other different art styles whether it be surreal, conceptual, science fiction - the list goes on and on. Not only that, but's it's often directly associated with and compared to other art genres, mainly the emotional art genre. So then, what makes something dark? What makes dark art so unmistakably it's own genre? Let's find out!
A Sinister Feeling
Sinister, giving the impression that something harmful or evil is happening or will happen. For me, the word sinister describes dark art the best. While there are certain colors and subject matters that are often associated with dark art, I believe it transcends visuals. All you really need is t

Odyssey Propulsion 6
We want to especially thank an elite core of Odyssey II writers:
Those deviants truly embodying the spirit of the project by continuing to create and submit next chapters – no matter the story’s refusal to go along with their proposed direction. The zeitgeist is a powerful force, but the artist must know when to sail against the been-there-done-that. And our writers, artists and poets have been doing that week after week. So many artists and writers continue to send in wonderful material week after week.
We have decided to extend the writing deadline for the last chapter to December 31 and we're
Overcome your unfair obstacles.We all have certain obstacles that gives us the feeling of: 'This is so unfair!.'Overcome your unfair obstacles.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
To me it's one of the most annoying feelings in the world because in general we don't really know how to deal with it. One little part of us says: 'Don't whine about it, you are just being jealous.' the other part of you tells you: 'If I didn't have this obstacle or disability I would rule the world!!'
So you bounce around anger, sadness, hopelessness and envy.
If you were just sad about something or simply angry it would be a lot easier to deal with, you cry or you just vent a bit towards a friend.
But how to deal with he feeling of unfairness?
There are many things that can form this unfair obstacle for you.
Physical obstacles such as: MS, Lyme disease, Arthritis, Color blindness, missing fingers?
Mental obstacles such as: Depression, being a procrastinator (yes I'm naming it because it's a mental blockade that keeps y

The Matter of the MassesI've been painting for a few years now, but I feel like I'm only beginning to grasp the importance of this concept. I'll quote Robert Henri (1865-1929) from his book, The Art Spirit, which is packed full of such profound wisdom.The Matter of the Masses1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Robert Henri stresses this point:
"Insist on the beauty of form and color to be obtained from the composition of the largest masses, the four or five large masses which cover your canvas. Let these above all things have fine shapes, have fine colors. Let them be as meaningful of your subject as they possibly can be. It is wonderful how much real finish can be obtained through them, how much of gesture and modeling can be obtained through their contours, what satisfactions can be obtained from the fine measures in area, color and value. Most students and most painters in fact rush over this; they are in a hurry to get on to other matters, minor matters."
"The beauty of the larger mass is primary

Artists use tricks called, lighting, brush technique, color pallets etc. these tricks are NOT owned by them! I'm not giving people a free pass to copy other artists 1 on 1. but don't be afraid to get inspired and use the same brush technique color pallet or composition etc.

I have always loved anthologies. Growing up in Britain 95 percent of the comics were weekly anthologies so it has been firmly ingrained in my psyche.
I've always felt that anthologies are a good platform for experimentation, trying new ideas and styles, introducing new talent and especially good to read in the bathroom. I'll never forget the impression Heavy Metal had on me when I first saw it.
They're perfect for those moments when you've read through the 100 comics you've bought that month and realized there wasn't a single complete story in the pile.
I've recently relaunched two previously successful anthologies, A1 and MONSTER MASSACRE.
