"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

I've always admired her papercutting skills and this one takes my breath away! She's a great cartoonist not to mention and I love her cute little people.
One of my closest friends, and actually one of my inspirations from when I first met her, meet the talented Angela She's got such a pretty style I was surprised when I saw this, considering she used to have a more anime style.
Another friend I'm featuring since her creativeness when it comes to dragons definitely wins an award. I've always been terrible at drawing dragons, so watching her create her own is always fun and inspiring.
I don't really know her well but her style is so cute! X3 She's also very talented considering she's only thirteen.

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
My Progression as an Animator at DisneyA friend of mine is writing a book on animation fundamentals and asked me for a "paragraph or two" (which I can't do) on the subject of timing. I considered it and ended up writing about my progression of learning while a Disney animator in the traditional animation days. It was good therapy for me to really think this through and consider the order of things. I hope you enjoy it. "Like" or "fav" this so others will see it too.

My Progression As A Disney Animator
by Tom Bancroft
Walt Disney is quoted as saying that it takes 10 years to make a great animator.
When I was first coming out of California Institute of the Arts and joining a Disney internship in 1988, hearing that quote was devastating. 10 years? That's FOREVER! I wanted to be a full-fledged Disney animator in TWO years! I rationalized that that was a way of thinking from the 40s and today, we move at a quicker pace, so-

Commissions Open I'm almost done with the last one of the remaining commissions. I am opening commissions again! Yaay!Commissions Open2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time I'll be taking only sketches and animation commissions, you guys. I tried myself at colors recently, but the effect did not look lively enough, so I'm dropping it until I'll be satisfied. Plus my art block is finally going away after a couple of months. Things happened, mates. I finally moved out, spent one wonderful month by the sea before I returned home to help with stuff. Then I had to buy a new laptop. My old computer, that heavy piece of crap, shall rest in peace. Ahem. Therefore, I am temporarily broke. And I need your help.

There were people who asked, so here are examples of the animations I make.

I went and saw a movie with my friends, had a chill party, ate a lot of food, and a went to a baby shower for my sister in law on Sunday. Lots of driving in the sun alone and I have to admit that's one of my favourite things. Just the sun, clouds, green trees and grass, a road that goes forever. I even fucked up and drove to the wrong city and wasted a full hour of driving, but I don't really regret it. I think I needed it.
I listen to my music and I get a lot of time to think.
I had a strange sort of thought come into my head while driving yesterday. I keep thinking about all the things in life I thought I'd be doing and how I thought I was ahead of the curve but now I'm getting nowhere. I thought about the goals I've been striving for. A big house. A nice yard. A baby. Lots of money. Safety.
I got a big eyeful of that world on Sunday. I've been seeing the same setup over and ov
