ANIME CURRICULUM?If there were an Art University in America that decided to introduce a "ANIME PRINCIPLES" class in their animation program, A class that would not only cover the art of creating TV production/feature anime, art history and it's understanding, but taught by, say-- Peter Chung-- with special periodical class visits throughout the semester by Japanese Animation Directors from Gainax, Madhouse, Studio Pierrot, Bones, Ghibli and Production I.G. ( with english translators of course) with the final thesis of a 3 minute short to be shown to them for judging. And the top graduates were to be awarded and a year internship at any of these studios,ANIME CURRICULUM?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

The importance of observation.Hello everyone,The importance of observation.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to press this in a blog entry, because I'm starting to repeat myself in my critiques for the Studies & Practices section.
You can't learn anything new from what's already in your head.
If you don't actually study something, you can hardly call the result a study. I feel as though the skill of observation is being underrated, which is surprising, because I'm not exaggerating when I say that over half of any artist's skill is due to their ability to observe, if not more. Therefor, if you do not train your observation skills and practice purely your drawing ability, you really won't make much progress.
So for any Serious Artist who would like to improve fast: whenever you draw something, find references first. Either in real life (which would really be best) or from the internet, make sure that you have examples ready and that you study what is necessary before (and while) you start drawing or painting. Compare what you are doing to your r

Comic-Con: Day 4On Sunday, the 4th and final day of San Diego Comic-Con, we were able to keep the love flowing to show the artists and art enthusiasts who came by our booth just how much they meant to us.Comic-Con: Day 43 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The last day of Comic-Con is always bittersweet. The air buzzes with positivity, inspiration, and camaraderie, but in the back of your mind, you know it may be another year before you see some of these friends, old and new. Sure, we always have the Internet, but there's something special about meeting in real life that can’t compare to flipping through a portfolio of sketches, laughing out loud with your peers, and supporting artists’ hard work right then and there.
There was rarely a moment when one of our seven kiosks wasn’t occupied by an artist. Young or old, newbie or professional, digital or traditional, the chance to sit down and create art was difficult to pass up with inspiration coming from every direction.

FAQ! Finally!Hello everybody!FAQ! Finally!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been getting an increase in notes and messages lately asking all kinds of things. Problem is, I'm far from having the time to answer all these questions individually (even if I did have it it would probably make more sense to spend it drawing), but I don't want to leave them unanswered either since I appreciate everyone's feedback a lot. So I decided to make a kind of FAQ, since I'm mostly being asked the same things over and over.
I'll try to group these semantically so reading though them makes a bit of sense.
Did you ever do any tutorials?
- Yes, I spent a lot of time on this one:
There's a lot of explaining in there, so please before you ask anything technique or learning related, read it thoroughly first.
I also have a ton of step-by-steps in this folder here: http://algenpfleger.deviantart.com/gallery/8622578

What do you think?I am thinking about making a little build a character comic/book type thingy. Its basically like my tip sheet but it will be in comic/book format. I have already split it into four categories, facial features, hair styles, clothes and body types. Basically its a little reference guide, where you can mix and match features to create your own characters, nothing too heavy or technical. I will also be posting the pages online for free since I don't like the idea of any of my tip sheet/references not being accessible.What do you think?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What do you think?
I also want to get into graphic design/pictorial design so designing stuff like this is always good practice too! ^u^ and great for portfolios!

A very small selection of the latest photos of street gallery ... have a nice weekend
and, please, remember to visit the photographers' galleries as well
This time it's back to me :iconbatsceba: I am a little bit in advance ... but today is ...
I tried to avoid the shots that I call graphic street to propose you a less conceptual choice.
Some shots describe the life, others let you to imagine...

Yeah, well, blame it on the fact that my kids forced me to watch a marathon of Star Wars episodes.
1) PATIENCE YOU MUST HAVE, my young Padawan
"Street photography requires patience. More often than not I come home with nothing, but it’s the times that I do come home with a photo that will be with me forever, that makes it so worthwhile. (...) Street photography is about searching, finding and reacting…" – Jesse Marlow
"Buy a good pair of comfortable shoes, have a camera around your neck at all times, keep your elbows in, be patient, optimistic and don’t forget to smile." – Matt Stuart
“I only know how to approach a place by walking. For what does a street photographer do but walk and watch and wait and talk, and then watch and wait some more, trying to remain confident that the une

TPA featured photographer for July: meet BassemTPA featured photographer for July: meet Bassem9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Let me introduce you the star of this feature, Bassem or as you may know him :iconbatmantoo:. Why Bassem? Because!!
Because I like his status of down to the earth man. No high altitudes, turbulence or drama.. Simple everyday life and tranquil moments of beauty. Mary, I believe, would describe his works as slow photography, but maybe I'm wrong. All I know for sure is the fact he enjoys photography a lot and the simple process of finding, framing and creating brings him joy. And that is all that matters!
Also, I wanted to get to know him a little better..
Bassem has helped my busy schedule too.. I have asked him to write a 'bio' of himself, something he would like you to know about him..
Don't forget to show him your support by clicking the icon above, commenting his works and while you there leave a lot of these !!
