You Are The Future

Picasso seeing a seven as an upside down nose?
Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

To all you aspiring artistsI just felt like giving a little motivational speech, based on some questions and feedback I've gotten from young, aspiring artists.To all you aspiring artists3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you say you look at my art and get inspired, and I just love hearing that because that's just what I want; to be able to inspire! It also inspires be back, because I know very well how it's like to work your butt off and not feeling you're getting anywhere. And I can relate when some of you say you actually lose all motivation when you see my work (or others' work, of course), because you feel you could never reach that same "level". I was there too, I've felt just like you guys! I have also had the nagging feeling that my art might not be good enough, but those thoughts are all stupid. Yeah, they are. I'll be rude enough to say that right now.
Art can be very frustrating in your "growth period", if I can call it that. And while being your own worst critic can help you grow, it can also tear you down and destroy everything called 'motivation'. So

Jean (aka djailledie on deviantART) is a French photographer renowned for his experimentation and innovations in manipulating images. He rarely shoots a “straight” portrait or a landscape or a still life. He uses mere reality as the first raw material of his photographs, which he then enjoys transforming into something more interesting.

The reign of techniqueSo I'm gonna jump on this whole "technique & style" bandwagon.The reign of technique4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The newfound notion is that art is about "expressing ideas, emotions, fun, story - insert whatever", not technical skill. Lots of shitty artists with their crappy internet popularity and webcomics engines suddenly decided that they're awesome and epic ideas are so AWESOME, so EPIC, so LOVED by people, that giving them a decent technical framing is not important at all, and they can be lazy cuntfaces.
I have to say one thing about this: technical skill IS expression. The better your skill, the more instruments for you to convey whatever you want to convey with your art. Or nothing at all, if like me, you're mostly focusing on plain aesthetics.
Technical skill is the language of art. Not emotion - emotion doesn't draw. Your hand does. Your eye. The nerves and muscular tissue connecting the brain, eye and your hand. Art is about control over physiology - imagination comes second.
Let's see. Can a man with a vocabulary of 300 w

I still have a commission project I have to work on but I'll try and juggle both so you still get to see some new art. Life is feeling pretty good right now, I haven't been this happy in a long time, I'm excited to get back at work and keep it going!
It's over when I say it's over.Hello! I'm back. You may have already come to that conclusion when I posted page 13 of Moff and Flame on friday and subsequently stabbed a majority of you in the feels and bathed in your tears and sobs of "NUUUUUUUUUUU!!" and "WHHY!!?" and (my favourite) "YOU F**K!".It's over when I say it's over.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For that I hollowly apologise, because, like the nature of the comic, the pain was unavoidable, but there is still more to come. I'm still in the process of torturing myself, my characters and most of you. There were a few comments where people assumed this was the last page in the story and I just want to assure you it's not, don't worry, I'll let you know with a big THE END at the end of it. Sorry in advance, but thank you all for for your comments and your emotions and numerous icons of crying. They make this worthwhile.
I had a lovely time in the Pyrenees last week! I've been so busy since I've been back though, but the good type of busy. Hopefully if all goes well I'll have another page to you by this evening.

Traditional Art Week continues! This article will give you a brief overview of most commonly used physical media techniques and their characteristics, featuring beautiful examples found all over DeviantArt and tutorials. I sincerely hope this will get you inspired to try something new and experiment, why not pick a tutorial and see what you learn! Don't forget, whilst techniques has their own regulations and principles, they still can be combined, you have to be no wizard (just a little creative) to find a new way to express yourself through them. Let's take a look

Drawing is one of the major forms of expression within the visual arts, and is generally concerned with the marking of lines and areas of tone onto paper. Traditional drawings were monochrome, or at least had little color, while modern colored-pencil drawings may a

If you have additional tips or if you find mistakes in this guide please let me know, thank you.
(please excuse my bad english.)
1. Drawing and Filming:
Drawing and Lightsource:
Set up the place where you draw comfortable, the light should come from top(preferred) or left side of the drawing if you are right-handed. That way the area you are drawing on is not covered by the shadow of your hand. The arm of the drawing hand should show in the direction of the lightsource to make a shadow only under your arm. Shadows can cause huge brightness flickering in the time lapse.
I fix the single sheet of paper or canvas of my drawing on the table or easel or wherever to prevent the drawing from jumping around in the time lapse video. Try to make the video smooth.
Daylight as the only lightsource can cause flickering in the timelapse video.

Who is responsible for the Murder of Cinderella?
Solve the Murder Mystery Contest →
It has now been two weeks since the beautiful fairy tale that was my life has come crashing down into utter devastation and nightmare.
My darling beloved, my Princess, my Cinderella is no more.
She has been taken away from me and from all of you, her legions and generations of fans of her grand and glorious story, by dastardly murderers most heinous, heartless and foul... and as of this hour still unknown.
The personal story of my Cinderella has always been a reassurance (to youth but to all ages as well) that true love will always conquer all adversity, sabotage, and lies. My dear Cinderella

With strong lines, forced perspective, and captivating characters, it's hard not to look twice at each of her digital paintings.

Crying In PublicOkay, so I'm a firm believer in not showing people your weak side, in public. I was raised to always smile and cry in the shower with the water running. So... when my macbook pro malfunctioned for the first time in two years yesterday, I had no idea what to do. Mind you, I hadn't backed up my stuff in like months so I had tons of commissions, academic papers, and just my entire life on my computer. It kept showing the grey and blue screens, and after 4 hours at my university's IT center and them not being able to fix it, I wanted to break down. So the guy apologizes for not being able to fix it and tells me to call apple and tell them I need a new Motherboard because I apparently fried this one. For those who are computer savvy, you know that if you need a new motherboard, you might as well get a new computer.Crying In Public2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Bad Touch Trio (Bad Friends Trio)They are comprised of the worst, perverted men to walk the earth.The Bad Touch Trio (Bad Friends Trio)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
No, they are not.
They are comprised of three broken men, who find comfort with each other. They do not judge each other, they do not charge each other with false accusations.
No, they try to fix each other. They formed together, because they ignored the rumors and false statements, and knew they were all lies.
Nations were supposed to be above acting like the humans they represent, right?
Well, they thought wrong, so very, very wrong. When it comes to any weakness they sense in each other, any little thing they can possibly exploit for amusement or torture, they are like vicious snakes, attacking and drawing out any pain they possibly can, leaving the victim a heap of nothing once they have finished.
It is so sad, to see that these men have to come together, so they can be with someone without the fear of being judged.
It just makes you cry for them.
