This week's journal concerns itself with the magical ingredient to any artwork – the subject! Seems fairly obvious that to draw (paint, digital, mould etc.) anything you need a subject matter – and like writing this is where a lot of people get a mental block (how many times do your kids/brothers/sisters/cats say "What shall I draw?" or "I do not know what to draw"? It is not something I have personally suffer with – but that may be because I am quite new to drawing, and find the world full of ideas and opportunities, or it could be that I spend a lot of time looking for suitable reference materials and ideas for drawing? Either way, unless you wake up as Picasso, Leonardo or :iconfrancoclun: you will probably look to find references for your art,

*** This is in not way written as to be lectue, its more some thoughts I have and a hope to inspire some different thinking about artworks.***
Who are you as an artist ?
- I would certainly not say its an easy question, asking myself that I find it quite tricky to answer, I think a more valid form would be "What defines you as an artist ?" and if follow up with a few more question it instantly inspires thought, at least I think.
* Do you dare to be different ?
* Do you take advantage of the tools you have ?
* Do you give up on an idea if it does not work out the first time you try ?
And you can go on and on posing more question and sub-questions, but cutting through all that I believe Is where it all lies, it is not hard to take the easy route and base work of others people successes, I dont think any artist has not gone down that route.
Personally I think it is an important an invaluable tool, but also equa

A blanket answer to 'why my work is declined'Hi Guys,A blanket answer to 'why my work is declined'2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have received a lot of message asking similar questions:
"Why XXX's work (link provided) was accepted, but my obvious more superior work was declined?"
So far I have been repeating the same reply over and over again and I thought, maybe it's better to create a blog entry for this. Even most people don't really read it, I can still link this blog entry and save me some time.
So here it is, why this work was accepted but mine was declined?
First and foremost, art is subjective. What you considered to be great artwork may not be great work according to other people's standard. This group is more about realistic representation of human face, and we do follow a more academic standard when selecting art works. That means, we prefer works with correct anatomy (or shows the understanding of correct anatomy when creating stylized works), correct light and shadow rendering, correct and sophisticated shading (crosshatching or brush strokes).
But why is this work accepted but not mine?!
World Book Project - Please Read!~World Book Project - Please Read!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Its a GO guys!!
Please see my Official Journal Entry, and if you'd like to participate, please join the group that I have created for this project!
Today I was asked if I would like to participate in a "World Book" sort of project, held by :iconTraumfaengerin-Wish:. One person started this, they bought/made a beautiful bound sketchbook, and drew something on the first page. Then they shipped the book to other participants in other areas if the world. They drew on the next page, then passed it on.
I was captured by this idea. A sketchbook that has travelled all over the world, so full of culture and experience. How cool is that concept?
So. I was thinking, I'd like to start my own. So my question is...
Who would like to participate?
You can be living in any place in the world (no limits for people in certain areas - couple be 90% North America and that would be fine)

*** Now I will stress this point, that this is my personal oppinon on this subject, so keep that in mind when reading ****
First I would really like to say the following to those that do fake art, either by stealing other peoples art and claiming it is their own or by using unartistic ways to achieve greater results than they normally would:
"Faking artwork is not only telling yourself a lie you might start to believe in the end but it discredit the hard work of people who make genuine art, both being very bad"
And the second thing I would like to say, is that if you suspect someone of cheating/faking artwork, that itself is not enough, I mean you dont go trashing your neighbours car cause you suspect he stole your lawnmover, a important thing to rememer is that if someone is fl
