5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Traditional and Digital art are both completely different mediums, able to create the same product. It is possible to paint a beautiful, watercolor-like painting digitally, as well as achieve the cleanliness and color options of a digital piece traditionally. Therefore, using one or the other to express ourselves creatively is, just like many things in life, just an option. People may have personal, sometimes even illogical reasons for using one or the other and that's fine. Today, however, I'm a cheerleader for the "traditional side", and I offer you 5 reasons to do it traditionally!
1. Oh the wonderful smell of art supplies > I'm not talking about the toxic smell that come painting techniques require, of course. Rather about the feeling you get when entering a huge art supply store, touching all those brand new pencils and tubes

Hi I’m Andrea Dotta: a Pro comic artist and animator and one year ago I had the insane idea of making a powerful webcomic to show my works to more people as possible. Now I’m in a positive development towards my goal. If you want to do a webcomic, always do your best as their are millions of webcomics on the internet.
In this article, I would like to share the things that I’ve learned this year so I hope you will get something from me.
IDEA: There are no bad ideas, there are only ideas that are not developed. To develop your idea, you need to be authentic - think of your real life experiences to give credibility to your story. If you need a sad story, think of a sad story in your life. If you want a happy story, think and say what i

Contest!I am strangely fascinated by half finished pictures. I love the way that in amongst all the rough sketching there is a section of shaded, finished 3D image and it makes me think pencils are amazing.Contest!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So! I decided to host a Half Finished Contest!
-the final piece must only be half finished, for example a girl in a dress where only the dress is finished and shaded and the girl is still sketch, or the girl is finished and the dress is sketched.
-But I don't want WIPs, I want pictures that look intentionally unfinished.
-It must be in a traditional medium.
Since this is the contest for PencilsPlusArtists I doubt it'll be particularly big, so the prizes will only be small.
1st Place: 3 Months Premium Membership
2nd Place: 600 points
3rd Place: 200 points
All of these will also recieve a llama badge and a feature on my page.
Send me a link to your picture or post it to the Competition folder here at PencilsPlusArtists. Feel free to ask any questions you'd like.

Wow, that's a mouthful. Try saying that three times fast. Anywho, welcome everybody, to my second contest! Wow, a few more months and it would have been a year since I've hosted one, but...better late than never again, right?
Alright, so this contest is celebrating the fact that the Marise fanclub has reached over 700 members...that is PHENOMENAL. Really, guys. You people are so amazingly awesome that words cannot even begin to describe the gratitude/joy I feel. ;_;
So what better way to celebrate this then throw a contest about the titled character of the club...? Mari! The girl with the bouncing golden curls who has a thousand nicknames and turns everything around us pink!

PE: The Impact of Color1. - WHAT IS COLOR?PE: The Impact of Color2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Color is the aspect of things that is caused by differing qualities of light being reflected or emitted by them, as received by the human eye and processed by the human brain. It is a function of light and biology, not an exact science, no two people can see it exactly the same.
The human eye and brain together translate light into color. Light receptors within the eye transmit messages to the brain, which produces the familiar sensations of color. Newton observed that color is not inherent in objects. Rather, the surface of an object reflects some colors and absorbs all the others. We perceive only the reflected colors. Thus, red is not "in" an apple. The surface of the apple is reflecting the wavelengths we see as red and absorbing all the rest. An object appears white when it reflects all wavelengths and black when it absorbs them all.
"Colors are the deeds of light, its deeds and sufferings."
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

Whole work in progress video... YouTubeWork in progress painting videoWhole work in progress video... YouTube2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
And I finally uploaded whole video painting progress from my recent painting Hidden Temple (drawing below). I wanted to post it already yesterday but I rendered it like 10 times already and I just couldn't submit it (it rendered more than 8 hours). So now it finally worked (though I still can't see full HD resolution. I recorded screen on 1920x1080px, but for now I can only see 720. I don't know why I hope it'll work later). I drew it 7.5 hours, and video is 6 times faster than actual drawing. So you'll be able to see whole progress in one hour.
And here below is video which I uploaded on our YouTube account Tincek-MarincekART. Like you see it's from drawing above...I drew it flipped like I said under the drawing. It's matte painting and you can see how many layers I use
