Basics Of Still Life PaintingTraditional Art WeekBasics Of Still Life Painting7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
A still life is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on).
~Still Life, Wikipedia
I don't know why, but a lot of of people including me thinks it is amazing to be able to draw or paint the impression of the inanimate objects we are seeing more than portraits or scenes. Maybe because only this genre allows the artist to build his own composition and arrange the elements all by himself unlike the portraits or the landscapes.
Depicting an object to trick a viewer to think it is real but still - Hence, still life.
Apart form that, still life practice keeps us grounded with very basic rules and it eventually improves us when we draw or paint more complex things, b

Stars mean a lot to me. I lost my sister when I was seven and someone, probably my parents, told me I could talk to her via her star (which I now know is, in fact, the North star - but hey at least I can always find her!).
I know that this is not uncommon. A lot of people talk to the stars, to people they've lost via the sky. Whether that's connected to ideas of heaven or not. I think it brings us comfort that in the darkest times they come out to comfort us.

YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SAY ANYTHING IF YOU HAVE NOT READ MY VIEW FIRST.
Now tell me is this a bad thing?
Yes ofcourse it is "IF" you already have a Boyfriend or Girlfriend. But by that I mean, near you, in your country. YOU HAVE MET the other person. I'm not counting le Mexico x Italy lovers over the internett who never met. I mean people who actually cuddled and kissed. Made it official.
Since when you flirt with someone over the internett you make them feel happy. And sharing happiness is some of the greatest things in the world. But lets face it. You shouldn't feel jealous if others flirt with your "Mexicano" GF/BF when you have never met them in person. But why is that? Because I think that to be an Of

How to advance the medium of colored pencils?Always interested in how to advance the medium of colored pencils in this digital world of today. Here are some categories of where I think colored pencils still hold strong in regards to that specific subject matter and have a future in it.How to advance the medium of colored pencils?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Very strong, it is something people want and something people buy constantly. Have not seen many if any digital artist doing pet portraits. So the market is strong and some people are so talented at making pet portraits with colored pencils it is insane. So in the future pet portraits will always be one of, if not the strongest point in colored pencil art in terms of selling. I believe thisl because of the ability to draw fur so well with them.

Very nice little niche, one can accomplish and older look and a more traditional look smooth digital art cannot usually. Not sure of the market but reg
