Beep.So it seems I made it to 2000 views, might not seem like much but I definitely appreciate every single view/fave/watch etc! I'm happy with how my work is progressing; thanks to the help I've had from others much better than me I can finally see at least some kind of improvement despite the small amount of time I get to paint these days. There's a bunch of cool paintings in my favourites by some very talented artists so you should check them out if that's your thing Here's a few highlights:Beep.9 months ago in Personal More Like This

March (And Novel)Hello all, lots of drawing happening here. I'll be sketching faces and anatomy in the background, and painting pretty concept art to keep you all happy (well, my clients at least!) I'll try to get a few personal pieces done, but bear with me if they are few and far between. But for those who are glaring at me right now (or at least at this journal, which is a little silly, if you think about it), I will be creating something in a different way.March (And Novel)10 months ago in Personal More Like This

Art VS. Porn There's a constant controversy over this. People don't like to see pinups dominating the front page. I've seen beautiful fantasy illustrations starved in favor of borderline-hentai countless times. Unhelpfully, conservatives tend to overlook the technical skill so often present in erotic art, and liberals turn a blind eye to the thriving smut meanwhile the rest of us are struggling to maintain some semblance of objectivity amidst the dissent.Art VS. Porn1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, what's the real difference between art and porn? Actually, it's rather ambiguous, I doubt you're ever going to find a line in the sand that perfectly divides the two. In my experience it's been useful to think of it like this:
there's artistic porn
there's trashy art
Very few people would argue that there's absolutely NO artistic value in this piece:
However, you won't see many arguing that there's nothing sexual about it either. It's defi

She laughed and looked at me. "Crap Mode? What's that?"
"The mode in which my phone does everything it is NOT supposed to do, and puts all my contacts under the wrong names."

"To raise money for charity, we're making an Artbook in which artists will be given the chance to draw a page (or double page) each. All profits raised will go directly to the RedKite, a foundation that works closely with children living with cancer, helping families financially in these tough times."

There will be four winners, each winner judged separately from the four categories available; green, blue, yellow and red

Advice for Aspiring Artists Pt. 2Here's the continuation of yesterday's journal discussing the importance of hard work. If you missed it, click here!Advice for Aspiring Artists Pt. 26 months ago in Personal More Like This
In part two I'm gonna talk about one of the biggest roadblocks I hear from artists who are having difficulty getting in to good study habits, so without further ado...
WISDOM NUMBER TWO!! Don't wait for perfect weather and stop making excuses. So often I hear things like "I don't want to waste paper" or "I don't know what to draw" or "I haven't found a good tutorial" or "I don't want to study perspective" or any number of things along those lines. I'll be blunt and just put the answer out there now: get over it. If you want to be an artist, you have to do the work, end of story. And with all the time you've spent thinking, wondering, being uncertain, and searching for that magical art secret of power, you could have filled 10 pages in your sketchbook today and inc

WISDOM NUMBER THREE!!! Work smart and leave your comfort zone. This part is my qualifier for art school, tutorials, and educational resources in general, because they can be good, but only if you make them good. Once you've gotten in to the habit of drawing consistently, it's important to start being mindful of what you're drawing, how you're drawing it, and why you're drawing it. A key ingredient of success is hard work, but if that work isn't purposeful it might not move you
Advice for Aspiring Artists Pt. 1So this has been on my mind a bit lately and I was just struck with the sudden urge to write about it. It's a bit long so I've broken it in to three parts, but if you're a beginning artist I would recommend reading through it, it might just get you aimed in the right direction.Advice for Aspiring Artists Pt. 17 months ago in Personal More Like This
This started a couple days ago when I was trolling facebook and someone had posted some artwork, and one of the comments was something along the lines of "Nice! What tutorial did you use for this?" which prompted an immediate and violent facedesk on my part. I hear things like this all the time and would like to help dispel some myths about learning art; so after 9 years of drawing and 3 years of hardcore education and study, here's what I've learned about how to get better at art:
WISDOM NUMBER ONE! Getting better demands consistent, hard work. That's it. That's the magical secret that great artists never seem to get to in their tutorials; it's that one pivotal thing that makes the difference between
How to price your artwork for freelance workFor a while now I have been giving pricing suggestions to artists in the projects forum. I've had many requests and given a lot of advice. It is getting to the point where there is so much demand that I just can't keep up on the reviews, so I thought I might lessen the burden a little and help you learn how to price your own artwork.How to price your artwork for freelance work3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The problem with pricing your own work is that your opinion is not objective. You may think that your art is better or worse than it actually is. This is normal, but to get the best evaluation of your art you should ask for help outside your immediate family and friends. Remember, the project forum is intended for this very purpose. After following all the steps outlined in this article I implore you to make a thread in the project forum asking if your pricing assessment is accurate. For example "Is my art worth $XX USD?" would be an appropriate title for your thread and would hel

Take your art to higher lever in 4 simple steps!
For people who are serious about drawing and want to make career in art! And for me to stop getting questions on how to practice, or how do you get better
Are you stuck and don't know how to carry on making great art?
You just want to draw better?
If an answer to any of these questions is 'yes' then you might find this interesting...
Since the only thing I ever acknowledged myself good at is getting better I decided to share a couple of tricks.
I truly believe it works in every single case.
It's true. You can get out now or shut up and listen and get better.
(oh and do I need to mention that you need to draw a lot to get better?
I didn't draw a lot and still got better because I followed the steps listed below. But yeah, may not work without drawing a lot...)
Step 1. Honesty.
Be aware of your own limitations. They're usually bigger than you really think, despite what people say. I won't be talking about fals
