Nigz First of all his name is awesome. 2nd his art style is nice. It seems more original and reminds me of "The proud Family" or "Bebes kids" with a hint of anime. Too many other artists are riding the anime look a little too much. Finally I'm thinking he mig

Nickelodeon's changing job requirements...Looks like Nickelodeon is easing up on their usual policy of 3-5 years experience needed for storyboarding jobs. I know that always frustrates new artists trying to get in to the field. A new job post separates the requirements into "Basic Quaifications" (which I assume means that they're required) and "Desired qualifications" (Which sounds to me like its preferred, but not a deal-breaker). Now they desire only 1 year of experience, but they add: "and/or training on a similar show; or equivalent combination of education and experience." The bottom line is that studios just want someone good and reliable, but they don't want to swim through an ocean of amateurish portfolios from people that are clearly not prepared for the job.Nickelodeon's changing job requirements...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

PAID GIG: 2D Environment Artist for CryamoreYOYOPAID GIG: 2D Environment Artist for Cryamore1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I rise from my grave to say that I'm looking for one or two reliable, very brave souls who are not scared of drawing rocks and boulders (and other cool setpiece'y environments).
As you may know, I'm currently (yes, still…) working on Cryamore and we're about to have another boost in our productivity but this time I'm looking to contract out 1 or 2 artists to directly assist me with background work and environments.
At this moment, this mainly consists of inking rough layouts of areas (in a very moderate resolution; we draw assets near-native of the game's resolution) within the defined style. (If you are comfortable with color and think you can render in the appropriate style, then that's a plus. I'll think about giving out assignments like that but only if I can see that you're capable of it in your work, cuz I'm a stickler for keeping things within the style of the game… hence the reason why I've been doing every environment myself

What is a Daily Deviation?
The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.
A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.
The staff/volunteer members responsible for selecting submissions for the daily feature often are open to suggestions and individual community members may direct their attention by noting the appropriate Community Volunteer or staff member with a direct link to the deviation which you are suggesting and a brief description about why you think the work in question should be featured.

Typography is an old form of art, everybody heard about it. But what exactly is typography? Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible while taking various forms, such as animals, objects, faces, hands or more direct inspirational quotes.
The arrangement of type involves the selection of typefaces, point size, line length, line spacing, adjusting the spaces between groups of letters and adjusting the space between pairs of letters.

Digital art vs traditional artMy work colleagues and I were having a discussion on the value of hand drawn pictures vs those generated digitally. I work in the architecture industry and even though it isn't related to the visual art world directly, we do produce hand sketches of buildings and plans that can be seen as art in themselves, and sometimes we have programs generate 3D models and then apply the "hand sketch" filter on a perspective to give it that hand drawn quality.Digital art vs traditional art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The discussion got me thinking about art making in the present digital age in general. Does drawing something digitally make it less 'valuable' than drawing the same picture by traditional methods? Does the ease of creating quality work in greater speed and quantity actually de-value art? My biggest question is probably what values do people look for when they see art? If a piece of art (drawing, music, literate etc) brings out the emotional responses that the artist was aiming for in the
