Joan Miró Against Painting
Joan Miro Homage
April 20 marks the birthday of Joan Miró, one of the most important modernist painters of all time.
Miró was born in Barcelona, and strongly identified with his Catalan and Spanish roots throughout his career. He traveled to and from Spain frequently throughout the course of his life, even though he was briefly exiled during Franco’s rule.
One of the defining features of Miró's career was his refusal to associate full

The film follows the journey of Ashitaka, a young warrior who goes in search of a cure to save his life and finds himself in the middle of a battle between nature and industry. The animal gods lead by Princess Mononoke (or S

this is my final say in the argument against natural born talent vs skill. we all start out by drawing scribbles that slightly resemble things. i was about 3 yrs old here., and had probably already been drawing for some time since i was brought up in a family of artists. drawing only gives back with the time we give to it, and it takes a lot of patience, more needed in the beginning, and a lot of determination to keep at it even though we are continually frustrated.
hope this inspires some of you to keep going, or some of you to start, it will be even better if more of you, my dA friends, stop making excuses saying you werent born with the ability to make your dreams come true. the only thing holding you back is yourself. drawing is but a skill which we learn through lots of practice, determination, observation and patience. if you also have the undenied passion for it, you may see yourself getting further than others.
it also helps if you're able to be ho

So...I'm getting tired of updating the list of links on each new set of folders.
As such, I'm going to make one complete, constantly updated directory here.
Feel free to make your requests here as well. Just leave me the name of the series and the character (they have to be chibi though, they fit better in the folders lol). I actually prefer to do sets as opposed to singles, so don't be shy in requesting more than one. I reserve the right to decline (though I likely won't without good reason.) I can't guarantee they'll get done quickly or at all, but no harm in trying, eh?

Truly an inspirationFRANCIS TSAI :iconfrancis001:Truly an inspiration2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Been watching him for years, his incredible work, his sense of design. Sadly, i was surprised to see his journal longtime ago, he got a disease that started to attack his body, so he wasnt able to use his hands anymore, but that didnt stop it. He is truly a guy you should admire.
And havent heard from him in a while, he was happy trying to paint in an ipad using his feet. Then a friend showed me a recent video, i was devastated.
I see lots of complains about people that are doing art or even in my case, like my back hurts, my eyes, i cant draw, my tablet sucks, my brushes arent good, i will draw tomorrow i have a lot of time. Complains complains that really are nothing-
You have no excuse to try your best. Francis Tsai its trying his best. He is truly a great artist i just cant matching in WILL, even with a tiny flu i cant draw. He is a real berserk, against all odds he has noe xcuse to continue drawing and painting.

Long story short, a few pages and chapters are no longer available on deviantart because they are NSFW.

Why People Hate ArtI found this talk very interesting and absolutely agreeable as it makes some sound arguments against some of the bullshit that's going on in the art world and how to go about remedying it.Why People Hate Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
From the video's description:
"Art is often nothing more than a footnote to a (poorly written) essay making an unsound argument that uses technical and scientific terms inappropriately and without justification in an attempt to apply a veneer of rigour over their steaming pile of banal observations and utter nonsense.
This talk is a criticism of that tendency in the art world.

New soft for CG painting!!!New soft for CG painting!!!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Dear friends! I have good news for you - there is a new software for CG drawing called "Paintstorm Studio".
As you may have noticed, I almost haven’t posted any pictures for the last two years. And the reason for that is as follows: all this time I was busy creating my own software for painting
Yes, when once again, I was dissatisfied with the functionality of the software I was using, I suddenly remembered that in fact I am a programmer by education, so I decided to try to create my own software. It was an absolutely crazy idea, because, as I have heard, software development is thousands of dollars to manage and dozens of programmers to involve. However, it seemed to me that it's not very difficult (naive).
At first, it was just interesting (like how to solve puzzles or playing chess). Then I really became interested in and, as usual, it turned out to be something like "so much already done – nowhere to retreat!"

Dude- why not just take a photo and call it done!When I download a drawing like my latest eye study I get some of this, and it's a good question and one that needs to be thought through by every realist.Dude- why not just take a photo and call it done!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hello, I'm doing some research (not very scientific, I just need some opinions) on photo-realism and I'd like to ask you a question if you don't mind: "why not simply take a photograph or use a 3D program"?
That's a great question and a realist has to answer this for him or herself, If copying without change, construction and re-invention, be it form a photograph or from life, then the creative process is not addressed, in this case I agree there is a useless element about it, it becomes a fundamental exercise at best. There is nothing wrong with these exercises if it improves your knowledge and skills as a technician. But if your aim is only to draw like "a photo", I'm afraid you will never attain what "art" has to offer. Also I think too many photo-realists rely on technical eye candy alone, with no

Best place on the web?I wanted to share a few facts about a company that is very dear to my heart:Best place on the web?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been my favourite place on the web for about seven years now. It also has some impressive little-known stats - it's the sixth biggest social network in the world. It has 28 million users. It set the standard for the user icon, and incorporated the first 'like' button. It was also, apparently, the first social network, 12 years ago.
I love it because I find it to be a wonderfully positive environment - way less haters than pretty much any site I ever invested any time in. It's supportive of creators, whatever level they are at. It encourages diversity, and doesn't judge it's users, no matter what they are into (pretty much!), writers, artists and photographers all.
It also, many people don't know, sponsored artist's alley at SDCC, keeping it in the main hall, laying down a soft carpet to spare feet, and providing padded chairs. It sponsored Tr!ckster, and the Spectrum convention. It genuinely - and I mean
Ego vs tirednessThe other day a friend told me that he meet an artist he liked in a con in san diego, and he said to me that he was a real douchebag. I replied to him, does he was all day signing to a lot of people at the both?, did he had pain in his back?, do you catch him running like crazy to the bathroom and you wanted to tell him the story of your life? Did you interrupt him talking to a friend he havent seen in 8 years? When you were talking to him the line was big so he interrupt you to give minutes to the person you didnt see at your back? Did he was sick and taking pills at the booth? Did he receive a call that he wont get paid and got mad? Did a close family member died recently and he just wants to be alone and shows no interest in your talking about Dragon Ball?Ego vs tiredness3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.
