The Dead Places
The Visual Delicacy of Decay
It’s easy to think of art in terms of what is instantly pleasing to the eye, artworks which
evoke a feeling of joy and hopefulness and blissful peacefulness or ecstatic exultation.
This is the consideration of art as something that helps propel us forward through life – to out future great
deeds, our career victories, or dreams of coming big events. But there is a peak to every life. At some point all
people, and all places, and even all ideas have to begin the inevitable decline that is the other balancing half of a lifetime.
Comic Composition GeekoutSPECIAL GUEST STAR (against his knowledge) IS :iconandrew-ross-maclean:Comic Composition Geekout2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You guys know when I get really excited about art geekery, I JUST CAN'T KEEP IT IN. I also feel like composition is a really hard thing to learn, and all you can really do is try to learn "what is good" in composition, and then try to find examples until you can recognize it. In addition, composition for comics is extra hard because you have to worry about the overall flow of the page as well as the composition of each individual panel.
So I was doing my spring cleaning of my message center and came on some new comic pages he uploaded, all of which are awesome, but take a particular look at this one:
This page is AMAZING. I started watching this guy for his slick style and stayed for his crazy composition skills, and this page makes a particularly good example because his work is so clean and straight-forward, there's not a lot of noodling to distract from the motion lines.

This is an example of what I would like to do; Many of you have already read about it, and gave me your support. I'm telling it again.
I'M SERIOUSLY THINKING ON TO START A CROWDFUNDING
This is it. I want to start a crowdfunding project. I am looking for good printing and shipping prizes that offers me good quality. I'm waiting for an answer from a very cool guy I have meet who is going to help me.
I think that my crowdfunding project will be an artbook. But I don't want to stay just there. I mean, the most important thing is that I want to enjoy every page I fill. Every line I do and every color I choose.
If I don't feel I'm spending a good time doing this, I should not do it. And this kind of mentallity is what makes me want to do this. Spending a super good time, and have one of the better experiences in m
LIVE character design workshop- BETAHey everyone. I'm on vacation this week, but I hope you are all having a good summer so far. I wanted to announce a new program I want to start of live internet workshops/lectures on character art/character posing. I've been thinking about this for awhile, but its very intimidating figuring out the best way to do it- SO, I'm just gonna start! I need your help though. I want to hear your comments and suggestions on what, how, when this is done. Please do two things for me: 1) Comment on my thoughts below on how this can work and what will be discussed- especially any thoughts on the tech side like Paypal and internet conferencing sites and 2) hit the LIKE button on this journal if you would seriously do this. It will give me a rough headcount of what I can expect. Super important.LIVE character design workshop- BETA3 years ago in Personal More Like This

It's been such a long time since I've done a feature just for the heck of it, without any purpose whatsoever other than showcasing things I love. I've been so busy on here with young-photo-club, Death-Chicks, GetDailyDeviations, and my own Group Spotlight features that I haven't been able to do a feature of random things I've seen and adored here on DA! So here it goes!

Assemblage and Collage FeatureHi all, getting restless, time to do a new feature.Assemblage and Collage Feature1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Finally submitted my last assignment at 4pm today. I think I'm done with study now. I want to apply my skills instead of keep accumulating them. I'm shockingly exhaustacapated.
Now this feature is about an area of art that I've really just begun to explore and I find it as exciting as heck.
There is something about pulling random images together, or found objects, and trying to make the seemingly disconnected connect. Arguably, on some level, everything is connected. What draws us to place things the way we do?
From the limited experimentation I've done with collage to date, I've found it to be a powerful way to tap into my subconscious. I sorta flow with what feels right and then stand back

Beadwork feature - shaped flowersFlowers in this feature, unlike the ones in Flowery beadweavings feature, were not made just by "painting" flower in beaded fabric using different coloured beads and, unlike French beaded flowers, don't need wire in order to get or keep shape. These were made using different sizes of beads, different stitches, different tension, by increasing, decreasing and shaping the beaded fabric. There are many different ways to make a shaped flower - from veryBeadwork feature - shaped flowers3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
simple (think single daisy in daisy chain) to very complex. I'll provide several tutorials and lots of eye candy.

Nerding out to SargentI went to the De Young museum today with my mom having no idea what was actually in it and ended up spending a good hour in a room with a couple of Sargents.

One of the paintings was this one- http://www.artrenewal.org/artwork/187/187/27161/a_dinner_table_at_night-large.jpg which I never really took the time to examine before. I admired the colors and general mood but, as always, seeing a painting in person is quite a different experience. His bright, not-quite-white highlights are slapped on chunkily and they come out quite far from the canvas. And they "pop" in a way no highlight has any right to- they're super juicy and effective.
When I got up really close, (this is a totally unjustified flight of fancy here guys) it looked as though he had waited for the

I have always loved anthologies. Growing up in Britain 95 percent of the comics were weekly anthologies so it has been firmly ingrained in my psyche.
I've always felt that anthologies are a good platform for experimentation, trying new ideas and styles, introducing new talent and especially good to read in the bathroom. I'll never forget the impression Heavy Metal had on me when I first saw it.
They're perfect for those moments when you've read through the 100 comics you've bought that month and realized there wasn't a single complete story in the pile.
I've recently relaunched two previously successful anthologies, A1 and MONSTER MASSACRE.
