In Defense Of Art, The Artist, And The TruthNote: This journal entry is a response to another one, "In Defense Of Making A Living Through Art" by Droemar. My argument began as a long winded comment that mirrored the sentiments expressed there, but attempted to provide a different perspective on the matter as well. It has now been added here by request. I encourage everyone to give the original journal a read, as the subject matter it tackles is important, both mercilessly heartfelt and honest. At times it requires great bravery to stand up and admit the truth; I commend the artists that do it every day of their lives, but perhaps it's time the rest of the world learn something of courage too. I suppose this was my attempt to do so, and whether or not it changes anything in your life, is up to you.In Defense Of Art, The Artist, And The Truth2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This whole issue pisses me off.
Let me start by saying that I don't know if this post, my post, changes anything. It probably doesn't, but it's a perspective that I think desperately needs to be hear

20 Questions for Droemar: Part 1Do you have certain resource books that you always come back to? I have some basic drawing/painting books that are really helpful, and I wondered if you might have something similar for writing, or even for painting?20 Questions for Droemar: Part 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have lots and lots of art books that I keep on hand for inspiration. The Art of Kung Fu Panda is amazing. Ditto the concept art work for Okami. I also frequent the website Creative Uncut, which reveals a lot of concept art work for a lot of video games. I have all of the Dinotopia books by James Gurney and and the Katturan Odyssey by Terryl Witlach. I always seem to find something new in terms of composition whenever I flip through those books.
As far is actual drawing books that have helped me, Ken Hultgren's The Art of Animal Drawing is endlessly helpful. I also learned at the feet of Jack Hamm. That guy can draw anything. Andrew Loomis, Muybridge, and Boga
May 2013 - 31 day PAINTING challenge!UPDATE:May 2013 - 31 day PAINTING challenge!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This challenge was certainly a great experience for me. I made some mistakes that cost me a lot of time, for example sometimes I spent 5 hours on a piece that turned out wrong and instead of moving on I took a new paper and tried to make new work within the remaining hour or so. During second week, I've decided to keep the scrap works a part of my challenge, even though I won't publish them they still appear as a thumb on my challenge table. It's simply not possible for me to do 7 good pieces sometimes. Also, posting every day took way too much time to keep up, so I've decided I will be publishing remaining artworks through June continuously.
What I learned during this project of mine? It gave me a better idea about how much time I spend on one piece and what amount of time I waste on post-production. I had to make a few arrangement that hopefully make me more effective today. But mostly, I've tried new subjects that I totally LOVE, mostly architecture and flow
In Defense Of Making A Living Through ArtThere's a frustrating element I've noticed lately in regards to Art. "Art with a capital 'A'", as a friend of mine calls it. And I suppose this blog was triggered by the cancellation of the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fan game Fighting is Magic. The fandom lost its collective shit because Hasbro sent the developers a Cease and Desist letter. The entitlement was just amazing to watch, and even worse was the sheer ignorance. Some of it stupid, like "Technically, all fanworks are parodies, so it's not illegal!" and "Copyright laws are so stupid!" to cruel, like "They can just take their development overseas, then Hasbro can't stop them!"In Defense Of Making A Living Through Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was baffled by this. Because Hasbro had the right to protect their intellectual property.
See, I've been a freelance artist for a while now. And it's hard. It is so freaking hard, and part of the reason it's hard is because the default attitude of most people you deal with is, "We're not, like, going to pay you a lot. Or give you i

A Few Personal Tips on Becoming a better ArtistSo yeah i've been thinking about trying to write some personal tips on how to become a better artist for abit now.A Few Personal Tips on Becoming a better Artist5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Being sincere, i still believe i have along way to go to reach and also am not eligible to give such tips, but thought that it might clarify a few things for myself first and help others out there as well
And mostly these tips are for fine arts in general and a few types of illustrations.
1 - TAKE RISK: cannot express how important it is, if i can summarize all the tips in one, it would be that one. Think about it, you play all your life safe, you do what you are customed to do, you live in the same repeating cycle. and when it comes to art, we usually do the same thing. We do what we are good at, so if we are good at drawing realism we stick to it. Taking risks is a major MAJOR step in becoming a better artist, in taking risks you'll discover new things, you;'' surprise yourself, you'll understand better the medium and its capacity.
Tutorials!Tutorials!7 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years I have produced a range of tutorials on artistic use of the computer. Most of them concerns rather general concepts and can hopefully give something regardless of which program you are using or even be of some interest for traditional, non-digital artists. Some examples of my art can be found in the gallery.
That said, to get the most out of these you should know that I mainly use the open-source image manipulation program GIMP. I also work a lot with the painter program MyPaint. These are both very powerful programs capable of great artistic expression. Being open-source programs, they are both legally free to download and use without any cost. They exist for many platforms, including Linux, Mac and Windows, so they are worth trying out if you haven't already.

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

How to get more exposure for your art.I was recently asked for some advice on getting exposure as an artist. Here's my own advice with personal reasons as to why I suggest them. This is not a post for 'bragging', if you take it that way, then please stop reading *i mean this in the nicest way orz* This is stating facts from my experience. What worked for me and what doesn't work. It shows how my own art has gained exposure throughout the years and how yours can too. I am not a fantastic artist, I know what I'm good at and what I struggle with. I work hard for what I know I can push out and I do it proudly. I hope this post will help you earn more followers and give you a bit of inspiration as well.How to get more exposure for your art.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
