Here on deviantart its often the case where a noobie will ask a question and another noobie will answer with the very uninspired answer of "practice practice practice." At its core this advice is sound, but the noobie-teacher has just regurgitated what he or she has heard a thousand times over from other would-be noobie-teachers and has not expressed much else. Diligence is the key, but without a direction or goal this diligence might be
Developing Artists FAQHey everyone, just wanted to make a new journal about some stuff that's goin on in my head, and to those who care feel free to read.Developing Artists FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I've just graduated with a BA in the Arts (WOW SOOOOO HARDCORE) in late April. Aside from handling small freelance and commission stuff between my spare time, I also started working full time at a local mobile game studio as a concept artist and animator.
Now thinking back on my journey so far, I've met a lot of obstacles and obviously overcame many of them, and the ones I didn't overcome I keep on trying. For the longest time, while being in this online art community filled with countless talents of various degrees, I have sought knowledge amongst the community here, and in turn people have also came asking for knowledge in return. While I specialize in the entertainment industry as a visual production and sometimes pre-production artist, there have been many learning curves that I had to tackle by myself, because lets face it, if school wa

As an artist, one of the worst things you can say to me is "Wow, I could never do this! I'm gonna quit art now 8(((("
I've probably guilty of saying that exact same thing at some point! And multiple times, too! But I stopped, because what does saying that even do, really?
That is not a compliment. It makes me feel bad that my work has made you want to stop doing something. You know how I got to the point I am at now? I got past those feelings, got past my self-depreciation, and worked my ass off.
Art is not all fun and games. It can be, but it's also something that I have dedicated myself to for years. I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil- at currently 18 years old, that's a while. Not as long as other, much older, artists, but I'm still improving. We all still are. That artist you look up to? He or she is still learning. Drawing is a constant development process: it never ends. Ever.

Before we get into the thick of things, we didn’t have a photo of our huge plasma screens hanging from the convention ceiling to share in our Day 1 recap, so we vowed to get that to you today! The 11 foot wide screens stream amazing works of art from Artists' Alley participants to the whole convention floor!
In Comic-Cons past, the foot traffic In Artists’ Alley got busier and busier as the week progressed, and this year is no exception. There’s something magical about speaking one-on-one with a deviant, learning their experiences, hearing how they started as an artist, and how far they’ve come. It’s an emotional connection to make with someone who was practically a stranger a few moments ago -- and then you realize you’re not really strangers when you

It's safe to just assume that most people in their mid 20's right now were raised by The Simpsons
I know it's still on, but i have no idea if its still popular or if anyone still watches it..
But in my slice of time growing up in the 90's, Simps was on every single day! Several times a day!
After school, by channel flipping, i could lineup 6 episodes every night
and I did!
But I recently saw an episode again, that i loved as a kid, and scared the crap out of me as an adult
When the episode aired in 1996, i was just 10 years old, just as Bart was.. is.. permanently..?
I identified with the kids because my own parents didn't have a clue what was cool.
In 1996, i was Bart
Now i am 27, 17 years later i watched this episode again
and it all rang familiar to me for a horribly different reason!

Bomango ze Tango!I'm going to get ahead of this right now and say that this might not be a riveting read for folks. Bad advertising, I know, but I feel it's necessary to preface this by being realistic. I'm not uber-famous, my characters aren't known far and wide, and for Pete's sake, I don't even have a proper webcomic or series to speak of. But, I've been asked numerous questions enough that it might be useful to have a FAQ essay of sorts to clear the air a bit.Bomango ze Tango!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

"Bomango" (as it's come to be known) came about maybe around 2004 or thereabouts...shoot, maybe 2003, which makes it a decade old already...sheesh. Anyway, the earliest drawings of "Gogo" were sketchbook illustrations of a big-eyed girl in a long jacket. Not anime-style big eyes, mind you...big, droopy, heavily-lined eyes, wi

9 years....Man I just noticed I've been on deviant art for 9 years. Thats crazy. There was a while that I didnt post anything because it seemed to take page after page of category clarification just to post 1 piece of art. But in the last few years I really made up for it I guess. In that same amount of time I've accumulated over 100K page views.

If it proves anything, it's just that much easier to connect online with other artists around the world, and to present your work how you see it. Im glad Deviant art is providing this service. Im sure they all get paid well for the service, but it's taken years of refining and I think they've pretty much nailed it. Im curious to see how this continues to grow in the years to come.
Also, it proves how you can use these tools and websites to promote your work in ways never before possible. I started a sketch blog last July, and in 6-7 months it's generated over 100

Challenging Yourself to Become a Better ArtistLike others here, I get asked a lot of questions about my art, my process, techniques, and my inspiration. One of the questions I get asked that makes me both smile and laugh is, "How did you get so good?" Half the time it's a rhetorical question, and the other half is people genuinely wanting to know how to get better at art.Challenging Yourself to Become a Better Artist6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The answer is deceptively simple: I challenge myself and maintain a positive attitude.
RISE TO THE CHALLENGE
Now you might say, "Well, everything I do is a challenge, I'm not that good yet." But that's not what I mean. Of course getting better at art is challenging, and even when you're what others might consider a master, art never stops being a challenge.
But what I'm talking about is specifically setting goals for yourself and taking on projects that you KNOW are going to make you struggle. The projects that you KNOW are going to make you want to give up and do something else.
I find that a lot of people sort of stick to a specific niche and never reall

Each Chapter’s End
Context is everything. The same photographs and paintings of airport terminals and train compartments and subway platforms that seem so cold and forbidding in contemplation of one’s traveling out into the world, somehow become reassuring in their hard functionality and durability – when thought of as the pathway to the journey back home. Faces of travelers photographed in airports often exhibit muted “Mona Lisa smiles,” masking the direction (to or away from home) that they are headed.
