Anatomy ReferencesHey guys! I notice a lot when I draw or paint, I kind of just wing it when it comes to anatomy. I never take the time to study refs or anatomy like I probably should. I thought it'd help me out if I make a link of references for different parts of the body. Most of the links are from deviant art, so you know they're safe!! I thought it could be useful to others, so I'll share the link with you!~Anatomy References5 years ago in Personal More Like This

Interview with :iconM-Delcambre:M-Delcambre
A bit about your background. Before drawing Concept Art, have you ever studied any other form of art? Traditional Art? Fine Art? Illustration? Did you ever study at an Art School or University?
In fact I am a student I still have 2 years, I am currently in game art in new3dge (school video games on paris). But I accept freelance jobs online. short missions in general.
I'm a professional degree in visual communication before entering the higher education. I have study the traditional designs for 1 full year in prep school. (
although I draw since childhood)
What would you consider the fundamentals of Concept art as a whole?
The traditional drawing, understanding of building an image, the basics of perspective and anatomy but not only .. Knowing a maxim
Where are they now? Feature #01Just a few days ago, I was looking through our galleries and some of our corrections, and I wondered: Where are those artists now? Well, here are some corrections from as early as 2011, and some features showcasing where the artists are now and their most recent works. We definitely don't credit all the hard work and improvement the artist did to our redlines. But it's incredibly inspiring to see where our earliest members are today.Where are they now?

Most talented traditional artists on DeviantARTThere are so many great traditional artists on deviantART and I gain inspiration from them all. Some clearly do not get as much recognition as they should. In this list are the artists I feel have the most talent from what I have seen, artists that can do things few others can, or can create images I really respect. Thus, these are some of my favorite artists I have found so far on deviantART, if I were to make a top 20 as of 2011 this would be that list..Most talented traditional artists on DeviantART4 years ago in Personal More Like This

PE: Traditional ShadingTraditional ShadingPE: Traditional Shading1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello. This is iDJPanda on the topic of shading!
When I usually start into the shading process of something, I always struggle to see which kind of technique I can use to give the piece of art the type of wow that I want. But just like anything, there are MANY ways to do it! This can help you use different shading techniques for different textures. I'm gonna give you a few different ways you can shade (Try to shake it up! ). If you have any other ways you shade, please feel free to tell me!
One of my favorite, in this technique of shading, you go against what all elementary teachers told you. You scribble! When you shade like this, you'll come out with something that looks like this.
Using circular motions, you generate different shades. Spending more time, swirling makes the certain areas you want darker, and the less you swirl makes the other areas lighter.

I want to fall in love with art all over again. Going through the painful process of growth as the art-bones stretch and your creativity get's set loose after wondering if you had any creativity at all!
2015 marks a new year and a new start, make the most of it and don't start it unprepared!
Here follows a list of things I'd like to do in 2015. You could call it a bucket-list. You can copy mine or make your own, but this might give you some ideas for yourself.
1. Going through all the fundamentals all over again.
It has been a few years that I studied any fundamentals and they seem to be lost somewhere in a dusty corner of my brain. I will buy: Books, video's, classes and study it by drawing or painting the knowledge I get from this. After doing so I will discus the topics with some fellow artist friends and see if they have feedback or perhaps anything to add that I might have missed.

Color Inspiration - RedHello again!Color Inspiration - Red2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This is the first of a 7 part journal about colors. I'll take the opportunity of the 7 Days Color Challenge to share some material I've been gathering recently.
Hope you find this interesting for either the challenge or future projects. ^_^
Red has more personal associations than any other color. Recognized as a stimulant, red is inherently exciting. Red draws attention, so a keen use of red as an accent can immediately focus attention on a particular element. (shout out to extroverted people, that's your color (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*)
Red is particularly interesting because it's on both ends of the emotional spectrum. On one end there's passion and love and on the other there's danger, fear and anger. I'm wondering which of these emotions you most associate with the color red. ^^
It's the first color bab

A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and ArtWith movies like Avengers, Brave and Hunger Games, 2012 seems to be the Year of the Archers and many artists have already been inspired to create their own archer characters.A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and Art3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.
First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depend

There was once a time when art depicting the lands west of the Appalachian Mountains as pristine wilderness awaiting exploration was censured by church and state as distracting from more important matters of the common pieties of home life. But there have always been those who need visions of grander realms for the journeys they can only dream of experiencing, but that may one day be rest stops on their great–great–grandchildren’s celestial road maps.
