Fan Art Friday: STAR WARS VII The Force Awakens
Episode VII Stormtrooper v03 by juan7fernandez
It seems the Force has truly Awoken, at least it has here on DeviantArt.
It has been one week since the teaser trailer for the first of the Disney owned Star Wars movies was released. Twitter and Facebook nearly broke under the deluge of postings of the trailer and frame by frame commentary of it. Each commentator hoping to spot something everyone else had missed.
Meanwhile on the far distant planet of

Esto es real lo que voy a contar, es la realidad de muchos que han empezado hacer su cómic o manga. Le han pasado a muchos novatos y hasta mi con lo siguiente.
Antes que nada, cuando pongo entre paréntesis la palabra gato, es el gato de la revista que le dice a Apu en los simpson: no cometas el mismo error que yo!!
ya sabrán por que.
Muchos me preguntan, como le hago para hacer comics, como hago que Star Ronin siga y siga cada mes en mi Deviantart. Diría que la respuesta es fácil, pero no lo es. Todo esto es con la experiencia que he vivido dibujando y viendo a otros artistas que creen que dibujar una pagina es sencilla o niegan que le falta mucho. también de consejos y consejos morales cuando me deprimo (si, yo también llegue a pensar que ya no quería
PE: Importance of AnatomyThe importance of anatomy.PE: Importance of Anatomy2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Understanding anatomy is crucial to many aspects of your art.
You'll notice that anatomy is essential for drawing. It becomes difficult to accurately draw a complex pose, or even a simple one, if you don't understand what's under all that skin or fur, or even bark. Knowing how everything fits together is important.
Once you notice where that certain muscle is, shading and form become much more accurate and more natural. Knowing why the nose and eyes fall where they do make it much easier to draw from memory, and nail that natural look you were going for.
Learning the anatomy of the subject you're going to draw is quite important, and will definitely help you on several levels.
It's also easier to drawing sequences of movement. One will know what connects to what, and how they move. What is possible, and what isn't. (Range of motion)
Drawing people and other animals can be intimidating. Once you have a solid foundation, it's much easier
Tutorial.Okay, here it is! My Video Tutorial. It's not too long, around 30 minutes of time lapse with me chatting / trying to give advice / effing rambling! Hopefully I don't sound like too much of an idiot >_> The time lapse is of the painting that I continued to work on (through livestream). It's in HD so the quality is quite nice. The tutorial doesn't go through to the end of the painting. It just covers the way I paint, if you want to watch more of it, the rest of the painting is available to watch on demand through my Livestream channel. I'm not sure how helpful my attempt at a tutorial is, but hopefully it'll answer some of the questions I get!Tutorial.5 years ago in Personal More Like This

Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!Years and years ago, at the beginning of my illustration career, a veteran illustrator got mad at me, and at a number of my colleagues, for charging too little. We all protested loudly. "But, dude," we said, "we are not veterans like you, with years of experience and stunning portfolios to back us up. We are newbies, and we need to eat, too, so we'll take what we can get. We're not in direct competition with you, so why do you care?" Then, we added, with great smugness, "Oh, and our rates are the current industry standard, so pthbbbbbt!"Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Except more than a decade's gone by, and I see that my colleagues and I are now veterans, with our own pretty portfolios and lengthy CVs. We have become the indignant illustrator's direct competitors, and we're not earning that much more than we were at the start of our careers. We're certainly not getting what he did, at the height of his. And we did this to ourselves. Oh, sure, we're not solely re
Fast lane to becoming a better artist.I often get this very question: How did you get this good this fast?Fast lane to becoming a better artist.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now as I consider myself not being as good as people tell me, even struggling quite often with being an artist in general.
I do know how to get better and how to reach it fast. I'm still growing as I go and it's the main thing that keeps me going.
You need to get into the right mindset and the rest will follow. With the rest I mean:
3. Positive energy.
4. The NEED to draw.
Seeing growth in your work gives you the courage to work harder. You know that feeling when you're just about done with an image
and feel like this image is better than your last one, that great feeling. Use it!
Do studies! Lots of them!! Make film shot studies, live object studies, master-painting studies. They will teach you a lot about composition, lighting, colors, shapes storytelling etc.

and this is what I tell them.
Find out for yourself what you really want to do with art, there are so many different professions.
Graphic designer, Concept artist (mobile and high end), Illustrator of bookcovers, or card games.
Once you can make your pick, or at least pick 1 or 2 you must find the best work on the market in those fields.
Find out what makes the best art of your favorite field the best art. What do they paint? How do they paint it? With knowing this you can find out about the things you need to study.
The most basic study aims are the following:
What forms of light art there? And how does it influence things?
The book Color and Light by James Gurney will give you a lot of insight.
How do you paint shapes? How do you light them the right way?

This must be the week of amazing trailers, because the trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is just awesome! Now what surprises me about this trailer is that it shows a lot more than we were lead on to believe, like I heard that this teaser trailer wasn't going to feature footage from the film itself, but here it did. We get this awesome narration about the force and there's being an awakening and then we see John Boyega in a Stormtrooper uniform, now a lot of people are speculating whether or not John Boyega's character is a Stormtrooper or if he's just wearing a Stormtrooper as a disguise or something like Luke and Han were in the first movie (the 1977 one), then we see a shot of this weird looking droid that looks like a R2-D2's head on top of a soccer ball and it makes this really cool sound and the interesting thing about this droid is that is looks practical, like the head looks practical, doesn't look CGI at all and if
