Advice on becoming a better artistI get asked by a lot of younger artists (and moms and grandmothers) for advice on getting better and becoming a professional comic artist. Hopefully this will help. Ask me more questions if I'm not clear enough and I'll try to post more about what I think makes a good artist and how to become a professional in the comic industry.Advice on becoming a better artist1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you're not already aware, I'm a self-taught artist with little to no schooling on the subject. I thought I knew how to draw when I was a kid and I thought that drawing from shapes and building your characters out of forms was stupid. I don't know what the proper term for this is so I'm going to refer to it as construction drawing or under drawing throughout this post. My parents had purchased me some how to draw books, I also went to art class, and both of these tried to get me to use construction drawing techniques. Unfortunately I didn't understand the value of it and thus rejected it. I didn't need to build a tiger out of blocks, circles,

Howl’s Moving Castle 1
Howl’s Moving Castle is best known as the 2004 animated fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
While it is as beautifully animated as all of Studio Ghibli's other films this was one of the few times Miyazaki based a film on an existing work. The film is an adaptation of British author Diana Wynne Jones’ 1986 young-adult novel by the same name and the first book in th

1st scene, in bird's eye view of stromwind, epic, fantastic and amazing.
Sunset is shining above the city, indicates that the war is coming
An armory in Stormwind. Shining shields on walls and weapons by racks.
Scene into the Throne Hall of King, so holy! King Llane is sitting on throne, Lothar and Medivh (I guess) standing in front of throne.
Close up of King Llane is thinking, maybe he's hearing Lothar reporting the war

Red, red, a beautiful red rose lay in the center of a powdery white snow field. Wilting, wilting, until its last day, where it shed all of its petals and retreated deep into the ground. Waiting, waiting, until a new beginning started. Scoop, scoop, the shovel dug up all of the dead plants and the rose was incinerated. Blow, blow, the wind blew the petals

Be vigilant of phishing scamsYour account's security is of vital importance to deviantART and we're committed to providing our members resources and advice on how to stay safe and secure online. Earlier today, an individual or group of individuals redirected some deviantART members to a false deviantART login screen by exploiting a cross-site-scripting vulnerability in deviantART's Journal system.

If you want to listen to me ramble on about Bioshock: Infinite (both about my role as concept artist, and my thoughts about the game itself) with the lovely Lisa Foiles and the rest of the League of S.T.E.A.M., you should definitely check out the latest Steam Geeks podcast- possibly a bit spoilery, but we generally avoid discussing end-game or any major story elements.
The second half of the discussion is dedicated to the insanely talented Brian Kesinger ( :iconbriankesinger: ) in anticipation of his upcoming book Walking Your Octopus, so do stick around! The man has no damn idea how talented he is.

He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.
In 1979, screenwriter Dan O’Bannon craft

Well, there are sometimes pictures of our characters on dA that they'd prefer not to be there. Someone must be stalking them and dragging the most intimate facts out of their lives, or even making up facts about them!
Why leave those OC paparazzi an abstract concept? Let's give them personalities! Let's give them lives! Let's create a team more villainous than any villain can be! Let's send them on adventures featuring endless stalking and tormenting other characters No private life shall hide!
