dA Artist Raising $20k for LGBT Animated FilmdA Artist Raising $20k for LGBT Animated Film1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
New York City-based artist Alex Myung (~alexmyung) has started a Kickstarter project to raise $20,000 to create Arrival, an animated short film with a focus on the theme of coming out. Equalitopia sits down with Alex to discuss the project.
Currently, the project has raised almost $4,000 from 74 different backers, averaging out to about $52 per backer. Keep in mind that Kickstarter projects are “all or nothing,” meaning that if the project doesn’t reach its funding goal by Wednesday, February 20th, no funds will be transferred to the project.
Equalitopia: Could you tell us briefly about the storyline of Arrival?
Alex: Arrival is about a young boy growing up

PE: Traditional ShadingTraditional ShadingPE: Traditional Shading3 weeks 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.

Big, marvellous, elaborate, finished paintings and drawings you can see in various stunning galleries on dA and outside dA, while they require time and can occupy artist's workspace even for months, in a lot of cases make a small percentage of created pictures lying around the creator's desk. Sketches aren't just noted concepts or a stage in preparing an artwork - a couple of sketches a day can be the most influential source of improving your skills.
You have probably been through this more than once - far from your room, you got struck with a brilliant idea. In diffrent circumstances you'd most likely rush to transfer it onto paper or canvas, but well, that might be not so easy in a classroom or on a bus. It can be difficult even if you're home - how about more than one idea at once? Using a sketchbook as a notepad for any concepts is by far

I've been meaning to write this in some form or fashion for a while now. Orignally I was going to try to write it as a Cracked article (which I still may) but these are in my view among the most important things to remember when struggling to get into the comic business:
1. It's not just about how good you are. Comics are a highly competitve medium and everyone wants to get a shot at their favorite book. Many of the people trying to get that break have great skills, and i'm certain fine ideas. But can you meet a deadline? How well do you communicate your ideas or issues with your Editor/Writer/ Penciller/Inker? How reliable have you been on the books you've done in the past? How easy are you to work with?
Honestly most of these questions are more important in many ways than how talented you are. As an artist you are not an island unto yourself. Ask anyone whose been in the business how long it took them to get r
Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus. Once in a while someone will mention Off Road (an OGN I did with Oni back in 2004), but for the most part it seems like I've been published only these last few years when in fact I've been published professionally for a decade now.Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de
How To Sell Your Original PaintingsHow To Sell Your Original PaintingsHow To Sell Your Original Paintings3 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In this article I will be discussing how to sell your original paintings. If your a artist you know how intimidating this can be when you've decided to venture into sales. It may even leave you with doubts about your own work, lower your confidence as a artist, and a bit fearful. Well have no fear! I have some tips from personal experience, as well as online references and advice from fellow artists that will help with your sales.
The First Step
Before we get into 'the meat' of things your very first step is Believe in yourself. Be confident about the accomplishments you've made. If your contemplating selling anything then you have to know you're good at what you do. Let that be your mantra as an artist. Understand that how you've acquired your skills, what you choose to paint, what your art looks like, and how

Looks like we'll be going into 2014 soon. I hope to learn and grow even more with everyone next year. Learning overload right now and a little overwhelmed.
CDA is out till sometime in Feb. I learned a lot from helping students and can't wait till next term starts to TA again.
Dan and I got together and discussed what we will be covering in the Cliff notes and how we are planning on showing samples
/demos. Before we officially start, we want to make sure that some of our instructors know what we are doing and get their
blessing. Yes, it sounds a little cheezy but I ( along with Dan ) feel it would be disrespectful not to do so since
we are passing on their knowledge along with our own.
Just thought I should share some concerns of students I spoke with on the last day about foundations.
