:icondboland2012: did an amazing job in my absence and will continue helping with the group when he is able, which I am very pleased about. I have included some of my favourite artworks from his gallery in this feature not only as an expression of thanks but because they are beautifully painted as I am sure everyone will agree.

Our membership is steadily growing and at the time of submitting this journal is 3,813 and our galleries as I always write, contain even more amazing and inspirational art, which is well worth viewing as
Tip for Today: When to give up?Never give up just because you don't think you're good enough. We've all had our doubts in life. Successful people do not give up easily. We must prepare and prepare again, try your very hardest and then about 50% more that you didn't know you had consistently, then keep going twice as long as you ever thought you would or could. Look for more knowledge and try again.Tip for Today: When to give up?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Favorite this if you're with me! Have an awesome Friday.
Sending positive vibes to you all.

Battle of the Brands - The Polymer Clay ConundrumMany of us start with one brand of polymer clay to start, and as we embrace the clays pros, we often eventually get used to the cons as well and work our way around them. But what if you knew which brand was right for you before you even touched the clay? Each polymer clay brand has many characteristics that make it distinct from other brands, so if you are looking for a specific trait in your clay, you might want to read on. Who knows, you might find something better then what you are working with right now.Battle of the Brands - The Polymer Clay Conundrum5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have personally tried every popular brand of polymer clay, and there are about five of them. There are also the polymer clays that require painting afterwards, like Studio by Sculpey as well as Super Sculpey... but I will not get into those.
The five most easily attainable clays are Fimo Classic, Fimo Soft, Sculpey III, Premo, and Kato Polyclay. Each have their own distinct characteristics, pros, cons, and baking times. These are my findings in point form:

En esta entrega, tal y como en el número 2, hemos incluido arte tradicional, digital, 3D y fotomontaje, así como también 3 tutoriales exclusivos para Templum.
Hacemos un llamado a todos aquellos artistas que quieran compartir tutoriales. Enviadnos vuestros tutoriales para poder compartirlo con nuestros lectores!! creemos que seguir paso a paso la creación de un trabajo facilita el aprendizaje, ¿por qué no compartir con el mundo nuestros conocimientos? ^___^

THREE TIPS FOR DRAWING CARSYou know that green ellipse tool that you bought in art school? Do you know how to use it for something other than oval shapes? Do you know what those "cross-hair" marks are for? And do you know how to use it for technically correct perspective drawings?THREE TIPS FOR DRAWING CARS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
TOO many comics artists don't, and it's driving me crazy. So instead of starting a blog that starts showing examples and naming names, I figured it was better to make a quick tutorial. And this isn't just for cars but also for guns, fire hydrants, and millions of other machined objects found in comics.
If you go through this and you're still stuck, please don't write to me. I'm happy to show you at a convention to make it clearer, but within a blog this is the best I can do. Check out "Perspective for Comic Artists by David Chelsea" for more.
Cars are a whole lot easier to draw if you know how to properly use perspective and ellipses. The more familiar you are with the math, the more fun it is to draw cars. Once I figured out th

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
Disney Princess Contest! CLOSED!!!Contest runs from February 1 to March 31, 2014.Disney Princess Contest! CLOSED!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Entries submitted before or after the official contest dates will not be considered valid.
The contest is simple: draw a Princess as the villain from their film.
edit::: When I say "as the villain" I just mean wearing the villains' costumes, not actually taking their place. Sorry for any confusion! But if you would like to draw an Evil Princess, you're more than welcome to do that, too!
Eligible Princesses and villains are:
Belle as Gaston
Aurora as Maleficent
Jasmine as Jafar
Tiana as Facilier
Pocahontas as Ratcliffe
Mulan as Shan Yu
Esmerelda as Frollo
the myth about talentMany people are under the assumption many of the high profile artists in the digital art community are mainly good because of talent. This is not completely true(in my opinion). What does make them great is the simple fact of constant and regular practice. But if you still like to cling to the word, then talent is just in other words an ambition and motivation. This word,"talent" has been branded with something that you think is something that can only be inherited and if you dont have it you are doomed to fail. Many people has lost potential careers because of this.the myth about talent2 years ago in Personal More Like This
well folks let me put that myth to rest because i think anyone with ambition and motivation can learn any tool and any skill.And if you are not learning it, it is because you are not working hard enough on it.its simple as that.The practice will open your eyes and you will develop to see things in different ways, once again this has nothing to do with talent. Once your understanding of all the levels of art gets wide

When I was a kid I wanted to be just like my father. He passed away when I was 28 but man he left a mark! By the time I was a teenager I was a lot to handle - so we hardly ever saw eye to eye. He was a tough and talented man. To me he was like a super hero. He had a very black and white philosophy about life. He defined right and wrong very distinctly - there was no grey in his world. As a kid, a philosophy like that makes complete sense even if it isn't very realistic. He was a former pro boxer turned commercial artist. Eventually he ran his own ad agency. He could play guitar and piano by ear and played baseball as often as he could. He also loved comi
