PAID GIG: 2D Environment Artist for CryamoreYOYOPAID GIG: 2D Environment Artist for Cryamore11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I rise from my grave to say that I'm looking for one or two reliable, very brave souls who are not scared of drawing rocks and boulders (and other cool setpiece'y environments).
As you may know, I'm currently (yes, still…) working on Cryamore and we're about to have another boost in our productivity but this time I'm looking to contract out 1 or 2 artists to directly assist me with background work and environments.
At this moment, this mainly consists of inking rough layouts of areas (in a very moderate resolution; we draw assets near-native of the game's resolution) within the defined style. (If you are comfortable with color and think you can render in the appropriate style, then that's a plus. I'll think about giving out assignments like that but only if I can see that you're capable of it in your work, cuz I'm a stickler for keeping things within the style of the game… hence the reason why I've been doing every environment myself

I've had this sitting on my mind for quite some time now, just. Wanted to wait for an appropriate time to post this.
I'm not going to single anyone out and I'm not going to outright condemn anyone for anything. I would rather just state a few things regarding comments consisting of very little more than "This reminds me of..."
I know the majority of these comments aren't meant to be offensive or even insulting; they're just benign observations based on a very human trait to want to combine things of a similar nature together. We're reminded of things we've seen before on a regular basis and it's part of the same reason why we tend to find human faces in inanimate objects and obscure shapes; it's completely natural and we all do it to a certain extent.
That being said however, imagine spending countless hours working on a piece and pouring your blood, sweat, and tears into it. It's your brainchild; your baby and a piece of yourself and your imagination that you're esse
Why are quality artists expensive?In short, because you are also paying for all of the un-paid hours those artists spent researching, studying, practicing and honing their skills. For your average professional, that's thousands of hours. That's a lot of non-paid preparation time that needs to be made up for. That, and of course freelancers have to compensate for their financial insecurity and lack of employment benefits (think of a pension, sick leave, health insurance and paid holidays). This is, in a nutshell, why professional freelance artists are so expensive.Why are quality artists expensive?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm just clearing this up for those people who ask for "pro-quality art" and are then surprised that they will need more than $20 to afford it.
It is also for those beginning freelancers who undersell themselves dramatically because they feel they should adapt to their clients' unwillingness to pay for their hard work. I know, I'm actually guilty of having done so myself and yes I lost the majority of the clients I had by doubling my prices, but I also
Online Figure Drawing AidsIf you're like me, you might have gotten lazy when it comes to practicing figure drawing. Sometimes it's difficult to find decent photos to reference, to do gestures or otherwise, so it's easy to do a couple drawings for practice then throw in the towel.Online Figure Drawing Aids3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, there are a number of sites out there that I've come across over the years that help with that sort of thing. They pull stock images and such from different sources and give you a randomizer and timer and other features, or show anatomical structures that you can manipulate. Below I'll list some of the ones I've come across that might help you. Some of them have the same images, so you can probably just pick a couple favorites.
An oldie but goodie. I've used this site for ages and it's only gotten better. On it you'll find 3D models of poses that you can rotate around, and they all show the musculature. You can browse the poses, or use the random viewer, or the timed v

Also if you don't know, the challenge is to support ALS awareness and donation efforts. You can learn more about the endeavors here.... http://www.alsa.org/donate/
Yenny engaing in the challenge is very meaningful...especially considering she and ice have never been a good combination on account of her extremely sensitive skin. This goes to show that despite intense discomfort, Yenny will still have passion for a good and charitable cause!

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.

*WARNING: SOME MATURE LANGUAGE*
"DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST?
Or a successful WORKING PROFESSIONAL?
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
