This is one of my personal favorites from ~sarahfinnigan because it really showcases some great detail and attention to highlights, shading and the surrounding backdrop. The details in the rocks are superb! It really makes you feel as though you can reach out and be a part of this piece!

My graffiti wall was all set up and going very nicely all through yesterday evening and most of this morning. Then a maintenance guy with an herbicide sprayer came up to me and told me that he was the property manager (he wasn't) and that I had to get rid of the graffiti wall by tonight. (And he said "you can draw till your heart is content, but it's gotta be *gestures over shoulder* outta here" altogether too many times.). So that sucked. But I called the actual property owner and got clearance to be there, provided I removed the wall each night.
So for a while, it was all good. Several people came over to paint, several people took photos, several people inquired about the project and seemed genuinely interested, etc. And then (dun dun dunnn) the security guard who patrols the O
Setting up Shots - Storytelling ResourceThis will be good for anyone who wants to get across clear story information in storyboarding and film and can probably be applied to comics. Granted there are huge differences with the graphic quality of comics, but this resource will explain thirds, if you don't already know of them, and how to use them. This is a condensed version of information that you can talk about for days and days and there are whole books on this. It's a profession, and I'm not claiming to know everything. I'm just imparting some basics in what I know.Setting up Shots - Storytelling Resource1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Disclaimer: These shots are all taken from Kung Fu Panda 2, which I sadly do not own (I'm not intending them for any malicious or commercial use, purely educational and personal).
I'm going to take some screens from a sequence in Kung Fu Panda 2 and break them down. It all might seem like common sense, but for those of you who don't know why filmmakers make the decisions they do for a shot, here's an explanation.
Every camera shot has a purpose, none is wasted.

....said a fourth grade student to me last week at an Elementary school during my character design lesson. The little boy's comment to me about how worried he was about not being able to accurately represent what he wanted to on paper made me stop and think about something our society sort of imposes on our artists.
Since when did skill in drawing = how good of an artist you are?
I'd like to know.
Of course, we all know drawing is a fundamental skill in which every "artist" is expected to understand the Elements and Principles of Art and Design with because these elements and principles translate to ALL forms of visual art.
LETS STEP BACK AND THINK.........
Think of Art Mediums like Musical Instruments.
Think of Drawing as the Piano.
It's the instrument that most people develop an understanding of Music Theory to begin with.
But what if you picked up a guitar first instead of a piano-- and y

And your work is so far below what they like, you're obviously in desperate need of their opinion and correction, which is largely that you should abandon what you're working on and start writing their idea of a story.

FAN ART CONTEST - more prizes and first entries!The contestFAN ART CONTEST - more prizes and first entries!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Winter has always been a season which people either love or hate. No matter where we live we always have some strong emotions connected with it and a lot of them revolve around... snow!
Some love it, some hate it; some play with it creating snowmen, others do everything to get rid of it; some see it all year long and some can only dream about it.
Because of how many different emotions we connect with snow and how many uses it has it's a perfect theme for the promised fan art contest!
Your task is to create a fan art or fan fiction that will present your favourite character(s) interacting with snow.
Every entry should revolve around the "snow" theme. The more original you are, the better!
The work must be a Fan Art / Fan Fiction and it should be submitted into the Fan Art

We are here for each other. We don't have thousands of followers. We don't have millions of faves. But for the most part, we have been able to find other artists that help us to refine our art. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I truly cannot express the appreciation and love that I have for my friends who consistently critique my work. One ~monstroooo, ~ChibiDomo, or any other of my adamant critique-rs is worth a thousand faceless, nameless followers.

The Comfort of Mindless Obedience
When is information true and useful and when is it just “propaganda?” Why in fact is an image or phrase or animated art sequence “propaganda” rather than it simply being a “lie?” What about acceptable lies that define our society as much as they degrade it - - for example commercials that obviously hype a product with untruths or political advertisements full of unachievable platitudes.

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Eart
