TO YOU ASPIRING ARTISTS...FROM JOE MADUREIRAHere's some of the most amazing and invaluable advice you'll most-likely ever get from one of my good colleagues and legends in comics/gaming, creator JOE MADUREIRA.

"DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST?

Believe it or not there is a difference. I'm not usually a soapbox type guy, I don't like instructing people, and I think I'm a terrible teacher. But hey, it's Friday and I'm in a strange mood. So here goes:
I've noticed that a good number of my fans happen to be aspiring artists themselves. This is for all you guys. I get asked constantly: "Where should I go to school?" "What classes should I take?" "What should I study for anatomy?" "What pencils and paper do you use?" "Should I be working digitally now instead of traditionally?" "How do I fix my poses? Learn composition? Perspective?" "When

SMASH! wouldn’t be the same without our Themed Art Competition, now would it? So step right up, get your thinking caps on and get that creative spark on fire! This year we want to see your imaginations run wild and take our lovable mascots to places they’ve never been. This year’s theme is…
Did Cyrus and Skadi grow up reading fairy tales like we did? Well, they’ve discovered a few Grimm tales and want to export some of them to their home planet. Help them illustrate these tales for their people and work them into one! Do what you will with the fairytale – reverse it, twist it, flip it on its head. As long as our sibling mascots are involved (and that we can tell it’s a fairytale), let the magic come alive!
To be announced. Watch this space for wishing stars!

(And Why The Biz Might Not Be For You)
Fully Formatted Article: http://fav.me/d5erlbh
So ya wanna write a screenplay. Maybe you’re bored with 180,000 word novels, but you still have a full-length story to tell. Maybe you watched a shitty movie last weekend and thought, I could have written that ten million times better. Maybe you heard that every waiter, barista, and pole-dancer in Hollywood has a screenplay under their belt – and so why don’t you?
So that’s your first thought. Your second thought is – I’ve already been writing for years. I’ve got English degrees up the wazoo and my use of epic metaphors has totally made my professor cream her pants on a regular basis. So why the fuck do I need to go to “film school?” Isn’t that just for hacks anyway?
Well, yes – and no. But that isn’t what this article is about. I’m here to tell you, okay, maybe yo
understand a painting study dont just copyThis is purely an observation from my point of view but whenever i see a study or painting based on a masterpiece or a screen plate. The results are almost in every case very good.So this tells me that our ability to copy is quite good and its not really required to be a high level artist.Junior level to mid level ones can pull this off easily too. Everything you need to know is already in the image we are trying to copy so it becomes a recipe for us.understand a painting study dont just copy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
the important thing though is to not "copy" it but to understand it and deconstruct a work method from it.And if you understand that then the work based from your own mind will be alot better.
When i see this kind of work , for me its not the level of detail and accurcy that one puts in the copied artwork that impresses me, but the images based on that learned knowledge afterwards. And to tell you the truth not many people understand this knowledge or are aware of how important it is to understand it.But the interesting phenomenon is that

the importance of failingsOften times i see many artists on all levels expressing their expectations from their current progress and seeing it as they fail. They feel this way because the type of level that is set is not only high but its constantly changing to grow higher even as they are progressing passed levels of artistic skills.the importance of failings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Imagine a horse rider holding a fishing pole with sugar(your artistic level you want to reach) by the end of the string. And you the artist is the horse pursuing it.You are progressing forward but your goal is also being set higher as you progress.
And of course you will never ever reach the level that is constantly changing and i think this is an idea that every eager and striving artist should be comfortable with. To be comfortable with failing.This is not to say that you wont reach new levels , because you will.The levels you set up when you started out are much lower then the levels you set in your current phase.
The tough part is of course to stay on trac
