Stolen Ideas*I recently read this journal and I absolutely agree with him 100%.*Stolen Ideas3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I recently hear from a friend that certain deviantArt users (I won't say who) have been declaring flame wars against users who they perceived as "stealing their ideas and techniques/styles". Well, in my opinion, this sort of view that "their ideas and techniques are stolen" by their peers is pretty damn retarded.
First of all, let's talk about the theft of ideas. This is the internet, loads of information flowing through it everyday. Sure you may come up with something you think is original, and if it's interesting someone is bound to like it and come up with their own based on your awesome "idea". But in the end, I will not believe you if you say you plucked that idea out of thin air, because there's no such thing as original ideas anymore. Your "original idea" is actually a culmination of all of the things you see, hear, touched and experienced. So in short, YOU stole ot

The Ideal Body In ArtFor millennia, the body has been the most highly revered subjects in the visual arts. That's not new news for most of us though; even here on dA we see that most work here is figurative. The nude has been called timeless because it never changes, but I somewhat disagree with that statement. The body in art has changed multiple times over the ages, especially the nude. There's a big argument that the body (especially the female body) is too idealized these days, but I assure you, the body has always been idealized (and sexualized). The difference over time is what part is given attention to culturally.The Ideal Body In Art1 year ago in Art Features More Like This

In the 1960s, youth was displayed in modeling, informal, very slender (almost underdeveloped, boyish figure), pixie cut hairstyles, doll like facial expression, ‘little girl’ mannerisms, juxtaposed with gritty street photo
How To Find Freelance Illustration Work. Part OneUnless you're already a well-known illustrator it can be tough to find work that allows you to earn a living, even with a solid portfolio and professional attitude – in this article I'm going to assume you already have those basics covered. Promoting ourselves is something we need to learn the same way we learn to draw: with a lot of trial and error attempts because no single way works for everyone. There is no clear path to become established. There are, however, a few basic approaches that everyone can rely on.How To Find Freelance Illustration Work.

Artist's Toolbox: Dry pastelArtist's Toolbox: Dry PastelArtist's Toolbox: Dry pastel1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
A Pastel is an art medium consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder of a neutral hue and low saturation. Pastels have been used by artists since Renaissance, but gained popularity mostly in the 18th century, when a number of notable artists made pastel their primary medium. An artwork created in pastel is called a pastel drawing or a pastel painting. We mentioned pastel as one of traditional art techniques in a series of articles written for Traditional Art Weeks of projecteducate
Pastels cannot be mixed on a palette like paints, but are mixed on the paper by overlaying and blending. The exact composition and characteristics of an individual pastel stick depends on the type of pastel and the type and amount of binder used. It also varies by individual manufacturer. There are two types of pastel -

What Critique is [and isn't]Hello patients! I've written a few blogs and tutorials on critique that I'll link at the end of this blog (along with some others I think you will like too) for you to quickly reference! In light of the previous blogs <Avoid That dArama and <No more excuses, it's time to improve your art I wanted to write some things about critique to bring both blogs full circle. I also realized that I failed to fully explain what critique even is in the previous things I've written on the subject Before I begin let me start off by saying that I don't write each blog for Artist's Hospital in a vacuum Each blog is about one specific topic, I can't throw in everything because then I would be writing a book!What Critique is [and isn't]6 months ago in Art Features More Like This

The Beautiful Creatures of the UnderworldI have such a story to tell you. About the miracle of a day that was the Black Veil Brides concert. I have seen and experienced so many things since last speaking to you that I don't even really believe it happened as it did myself. So I will do my best to summarise the 24 pages worth of info in my diary!The Beautiful Creatures of the Underworld3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok so basic details. Met Tom and Callum at the station at 10am, Tom having just had 20 mins sleep the night before. Got to Bristol about 11ish, and made our way to Blue Banana.
Right. I need to tell you about a bit of a mistake with the signing, one that caused a lot of complaint while we were there. The website event did not specify that you needed a flourescent necklace pass thing to get in, which because of said lack of info we didn't have. I'd brought along my STWOF CD though, and two copies of the drawings just in case. But wait until you read on, because there is SO much more to this story.
We didn't actually mind so much, because we met the most wonderful people I have ever had
ARTIST'S FEAR - How to Overcome it!Hey guys!ARTIST'S FEAR - How to Overcome it!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I just updated my blog with some great advice on how to overcome fear/negativity when you're trying to grow as an artist. YOU CAN READ IT HERE!
Otherwise, I'll post a brief overview of some of the tips I've given in the blog post:
1. HAVE FAITH IN THE PROCESS!
This is so freakin’ important! Having faith in the process means truly believing that if you give it your all, you will achieve something great. Even when it doesn’t feel true, you have to continually tell yourself “If I work hard, I will be great.” A lot of artists start out with heaps of motivation, but when that begins to fade they give up. By the time their motivation picks up again, they find that they are rusty and have to start relearning everything (it’s happened to me)! So, even when you’re discouraged, you cannot give up!
2. BE OBJECTIVE!
How To Find Freelance Illustration Work. Part TwoIn Part One of this article I talked about the „passive" way to find freelance work: making it easy for potential clients to find you. Here, I'll talk about the „active" way – how you can seek out freelance work from your own initiative. Only a small number well-known illustrators don't need to promote themselves actively. I assume that you already have a solid portfolio and some experience – but no one knows it yet. You're in for a lot of research and marketing.How To Find Freelance Illustration Work.

Art SchoolFrom what I've viewed around dA, the general consensus about "art school" is that it's an enormous waste of both time and money. Stories about pretentious professors, failed experiments, and unsupportive families get a lot of attention. I think there are aspiring artists out there who enter art schools with the idea that everything they learn will be intuitive and that there is no real need to understand much less study the very basics because that would make them "mindless sheep." Others don't receive enough support from friends or family and cannot complete their education. There's validity to both arguments, and I've dealt with both. If there's one thing that I want you to take away from this blog, it is this: you can do whatever you want, as long as you're willing to fight hard for it.Art School8 months ago in Personal More Like This

I had a few questions for you about art and drawing in general(that I can't remember of course) if you didn't mind.
A: It's an honor to have those questions asked to me, now I finally get the time to sit down and answer them. Hope that my life experience can help to keep some inspired and keep going.

A: INTRODUCTION TO PART THREE
Welcome to Part Three! (Please note: illustrations may be clicked, to increase size and readability...)
In some ways, this period, from approx 1450 - 1800, was the "Golden Age" of knotting. The two main reasons I call it this is due to:
A: The flowering of all things nautical, which as you can imagine, gave a profound boost to all things "Knottical" and, with the march of progress towards the "Industrial Revolution" and steam-driven ships and land-based coal and oil power also heralded the slow demise in many areas of the use of knots in many professional areas. and:
B: The increase in exploration, discovery and colonisation, which served to increase the types and forms of knots that were invented for various purposes from transport, and military use to fashion and a rapidly developing leisure industry including a new territory for knots: The Theatre. So, without fur
Some sad news about wolves (?) and PHOTOS of themHi!Some sad news about wolves (?) and PHOTOS of them3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I must say I am a bit nervous I visited ZOO Brno few times in last few weeks and I see that one of three oldest pack members is not fluffy yet ZOO Brno's oldest wolves are Atila (male) and Alex and Clair (females, sisters). Arctic wolves live only some 7 years in the wild, but can have much longer life in ZOOs. But while Atila still looks nice and fluffy, both females look somehow... "used" this year maybe it is because they gave birth to so many pups and they also used to have some fight (at least one serious two years ago). When you look at their faces, they start to remind of those photos of very very old wolves you can see here on dA and one of the females (I do not which one of them is Alex or Clair) starts to lose fur, her back and hips are moulted
Last time I was watching wolves, ZOO guide came, saying "Do you see that moulted wolf there? It is one of our breeding females. Poor one "u to má asi za sebou"." Saying "u to mít za se
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris LessmoreI appear to be conducting a campaign of sharing this film everywhere possible.The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore (2011) won the richly deserved award for Best Animated Short at this year's Oscars.
'Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, the Wizard of Oz, and a love of books, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story.' (From IMDB)
Please spare fifteen minutes to watch this beautiful film, if you can. I was in tears (and care not who knows it), but you do not have to be a nauseating idiot like me to enjoy and be moved by it.
Although in the horrifying event that you found you were not moved by it at all by even the smallest degree, then there is really little hope for you. You may consider us not on speaking terms. ^_~
ART HISTORY PROJECT: RODINART HISTORY PROJECT: RODIN10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Introduction & Background:
It would be impossible to embark on, however brief, an introduction to Auguste Rodin (Fig 1), The soi-disant “Father of Modern Sculpture", wihout including his erstwhile, and sadly neglected companion in sculpture, muse and lover, Camille Claudel (Fig 2) and of course, his other life-long companion: Rose Beuret, but more of her later. Camille was born in 1864, (and her biography was filmed by director Bruno Nuytten with Isabelle Adjani portraying Camille Claudel and Gérard Depardieu as Rodin in 1988), whilst Auguste, (never the subject of a movie in his own right), was born in 1840, making him 24 years older than Camille, and of course, being male, in that paternalistically male-domi

One of the great things about dA is that the majority of the collective community here is comprised of like-minded individuals and we are all greatly aware of the financial burdens that we as creatives may face from time to time.Financial Resources Available to Artists8 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
When the need is urgent or if your profession is being threatened because of a catastrophe, you may need more funding than what can be raised through dA. In such a circumstance, it would be in your best interest to seek out emergency funding through a grant.

''DON'T SCRAP THAT!''Two of the best pieces of advice I ever got considering art and drawings came from the very same person: A graphic designer who often stopped by at the comicshop. We spent a lot of time chatting about techniques and most of my knowledge about fibonacci and golden ratio I have because of him.''DON'T SCRAP THAT!''7 months ago in Personal More Like This
As for the points of advice:
One was that I should just take my time with my drawings and paintings. If I don't have a deadline, there is no need to finish it within a fixed timeframe. And I can work on it as long as I want, till it's finished. Or till I get bored with it. And never finish it and start something new. It's not like I'm bound in any way, right?
The second tip was to never shy back from starting from scratch. Whatever the reason might be. Just because I have just spent hours on that one detailed bit does not mean that the final image will look great if I build it around my initial hours of work. It can. But it does not have to.
So, I often I scrap drafts, paint over a painting or s
