Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art SchoolsAs much as I love my school, Academy of Art University, it's not necessary to attend a special art school in order to learn about art. Because of the internet, there are plenty of resources available for those who are self-motivated and eager to learn.Get an Art Education Without Expensive Art Schools2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll start with some of the cheapest resources, ending with more expensive ones:
1. Blogs, podcasts and livestreams. Most professional artists keep blogs, and these things are free treasure troves of information. The best blogs don't only show off art, they also give tips about the business of art and introduce you to new resources. Try starting with Muddy Colors, a super informative blog run by several professional painters and sculptors: http://muddycolors.blogspot.com/ For podcasts, check out Chris Oatley's artcast: http://chrisoatley.com/category/podcasts/ Also check out the Awesome Horse Studios livestream: http://www.awesomehorsestudios.com/
2. Online tutorials and videos. I basically taught myself digital painting by combini

Historical Disney Princesses FAQRather than answering these individually over and over again, I'm just going to leave this here and add to it as needed:Historical Disney Princesses FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
- I'm not telling you which princess I'm doing next.
- I would appreciate it if you didn't tell me what character I should do next, or what you're looking forward to, or what character you hope I'll do! It's very sweet and I definitely appreciate the sentiment, but consider the fact that you're something like the 400th person to tell me about Elsa, or Anna, or Merida- it's not adding a lot to the conversation.
- No, I'm not doing any Kingdom Hearts characters. There's no particular historical precedent, so they don't really have anything to gain from this series.
Are you going to do Merida?
YES PLEASE STOP ASKING sobsobsob
Are you going to do Elsa and Anna?
Are you going to do any more pieces in this series?
Yes! Let it be assumed that I will continue doing these until stated otherwise.
DA's Insular Taste PhenomenonIt's been quite a while since I wrote a preachy "THINK ABOUT YO' ART"-type journal, and some of my newer watchers may not know that this is a particular(ly annoying) habit of mine. This is a subject I've had on my mind for quite some time for a number of reasons, and it's recently coalesced into a semi-soluble form so here we go. (As an aside- this journal does have some recycled ideas from a previous post of mine, but obviously I hadn't really said everything I wanted to on the subject.)DA's Insular Taste Phenomenon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's no mystery that I love this website. I came in at the tail end of the pre-critique wonder years, when the internet discovered and exploited that, yes, we don't always produce the highest quality art here. There's a lot of unpleasantness directed towards DeviantArt. At RISD, I made a point to never mention that I had an account here, because of the looks of disgust I would get haha and people would think about me differently. It was

Bla bla bla. Independence. 1776. America. John Adams. Hooray.
So there's been this "internet declaration of independence" that's been going around the web recently, and to be honest I think it's a load of bull. As much as I love free speech and rights and etc, I simply can't get behind it, and it disturbs me that so many companies ARE getting behind it. There's just too much entitlement from people on the internet who think they "deserve" everything, and it's really beginning to creep me out. I'm all for abolishing SOPA and ACTA other things like it, but I just can't in good faith get behind the "internet declaration of independence." Sorry.
What's with this weird anti 4th of July backlash that's going on? All the people complaining about the "patriotism" and stuff. I know it's always existed, but I've never seen it this massive before. Do people really just not understand the point of holidays? It's lik

Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise

Seguro han visto en las noticias algunas de las imágenes y videos de los disturbios urbanos que ocurrieron el 1º de Diciembre de 2012 en la ciudad de México (y tal vez se enteraron de los que ocurrieron en otros lugares) y que incluyeron unos pocos miles de manifestantes, bombas incendiarias, ataques a barricadas, petardos, daños a propiedad pública y privada por millones de pesos, decenas de heridos, más de 100 detenidos iniciales y un supuesto muerto. Todo mientras Enrique Peña Nieto tomaba poder como presidente de Los Estados Unidos Mexicanos, recibiendo la atención de los medios masivos que parecían no enterarse de lo que ocurría afuera en las calles. http://actualidad.rt.com/actualidad/view/79936-vivo-disturbios-mexico-dia-posesion-presidente-enrique-pena-nieto ¿Qué sucedió?

i actually do recommend exercises like these for any would be professional, they help you adjust and balance the speed and quality aspects of your workflow. you won't always get the best results but you will start thinking in new ways while painting

Cryamore Demo on the Horizon (New Gameplay Video)Hey everyone! We've been working like mad for this demo (GDC WEEK IS IN ONE WEEK, YIKES!), so I did a lil' gameplay recording teasing what we're throwing in so far. Of course, a lot of what you see is all Work-In-Progress, and we still have a lot to throw in this week (voice acting, cleaning up assets, events, etc.), so you're going to see a big change from the demo's release.Cryamore Demo on the Horizon (New Gameplay Video)2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Correcty me if im wrong, people are going to send designs and designs that took months or years in preparations from schools, wasting money in materials, electricity, tablets, tears and blood, and in the end they wont receive anything just a palm in your shoulder saying good job.

REPOSTING OLD Korra StoryBoard workThis is just a repost of some Korra storyboard work I did for Season one.REPOSTING OLD Korra StoryBoard work3 months ago in Personal More Like This
TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS...."The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who'll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you're sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that's almost never the case." - Chuck CloseTO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
