Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!Painting With A Knife!9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
You all may have seen those old masterpieces – painted in impasto techniques with rich and bold use of thick coats of colours and you have wondered how on earth they could do that.
So lets take a peek in the old masters' tools and techniques.
Today we will talk about a less used traditional technique – painting with a knife. Though it's a second most famous technique but not much artists use this technique.
Painting with a knife results in excellent textures, helps in bold application of thick rich colours, and, gives a whole new different level and style to your paintings.
Painting knives are very useful in impasto technique – both in acrylics and oils. Besides interesting textures, this certain tool gives you more control over paint and opens up a lot of ways to experiment. In one sentence, painting with a knife brings up your painting styles at a new height.

Tools of the TradeHey guys. I figured I'd go ahead and do a FAQ journal entry. Just a basic list of the tools I'm currently using for my marker work. I have a new tutorial for my markers that I'll post when I'm able to share the art I used for the progress shots. Feel free to fire away with any questions and hopefully, this can be a go to guide for basic info on my tools. I'm not going to talk about oil painting materials as I'm still figuring all that out and I doubt an answer I give today will hold up in the future.Tools of the Trade2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok Here goes...
Markers: Prismacolor Cool and French grey markers. I think "Copic" has become another word for "marker" these days, so it's assumed that I'm using Copics for all of my work, but I actually use Prismacolor for all of my figures and detail work and only use Copic markers for backgrounds. I use to use "Warm" greys but I like the sepia look of French more now. I also occasionally use Copic color markers when I'm doing a full color marker piece. Why do I like Prismacolor markers

A lot of people want to learn to draw and paint better but they just don't know where to start. You don't need an expensive art course to learn and progress, sometimes the answers are not far away. On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them. When you know what you want to improve, searching for a good tip gets even easier.

We've got a new contest for you!
BADASS EATING AND DRINKING!
The important thing is that it's about badasses consuming food or drink in a suitably awesome way.
This contest is open to original characters and fan works alike.
There's a lot of ways to do this. Possible ingredients include...
-Food or drink that is badass in nature. Fearsome beasts that tried to eat you first, or alcoholic drinks powerful enough to melt your bones.
-A badass character consuming the food or drink. Boozing it up while standing on top of defeated foes, drinking a flaming drink. shoving an entire roast boar down his mouth.
-A badass forcing a non-badass to eat something he doesn't want to. You WILL like green eggs and ham!
Any combination of the above or something different, those where what came to our minds.
-In case it's not obvious, MAKE IT BADASS!

Shading Techniques Applied: Shading a PortraitShading Techniques Applied: Shading a Portrait3 months ago in Personal More Like This
My latest course on shading explains how to create realistic lighting using Photoshop. The beautiful part is that the information taught in the course applies to any subject and any medium. The shading techniques course is more than a slick demo or a Photoshop tutorial. It’s core, fundamental principles and concepts of realistic light and shadow.
In this article, I’ll demonstrate how to apply shading techniques to a portrait. See video below for a portrait shading demonstration from a recent ‘Draw With Chris’ Livestream. Photoshop is the medium used in the video. Oil paint is used in the demo for the text version below.

Days of Doodles
Mindful Meditation of Daily Drawing
Foreword by techgnotic
Gabriel Picolo is a graphic design student in Brazil who has provided at least two people—me and himself—a most compelling reason for getting out of bed every morning in 2014. He calls it the 365 Days of Doodles Project, for which he creates, each day, one of his wildly imaginative pencil sketch and ink drawings (quite a bit more elevated than a “doodle”—more like a free-flowing meditation).

Yep, it’s coming to the festive season once again, folks, and let me take the chance to wish you all Happy Holidays!
……. *my smile fades into a frown, and then I break out into tears* … Or at least it WOULD be! …..Because the first holiday film that I will be reviewing is not only the worst holiday special I have seen in my life, but the worst film I have seen in my life… PERIOD. Over the years that I have been doing reviews, I have taken on a variety of different films and animated episodes, some good, some bad. And after sitting through The Wild, Ren Seeks Help, Are You Happy Now and that horrid pilot of Mr Pickles, I naively believed that I could take on ANYTHING….

ERMAHGERD PACIFIC RIM HNNNNNG.Update - My plans for fan art have been shattered. I don't think anything I could do would come close to :icondrbuffalo:'s amazing vision.ERMAHGERD PACIFIC RIM HNNNNNG.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My initial impressions -
- Definitely a lot of "buzz words" and "posing" by the lead actors, which is to be expected in a film of this type.
- I found the opening monologue a little cheesy and kinda' weak, but the speech by Idris "The Sexual Warlord" Elba was pretty damn cool.
- Man, now THAT'S how you make/film giant CGI robots. The "Bayformers," while having a handful of decent moments, are all such incomprehensible piles of metal and shrapnel that it just makes for bad overall aesthetic. The Jaegers do it right - broad colors, recognizable humanoid shapes, and ROCKET PUNCHES. It'll be interesting to see what kind of different powers and attacks each robot brings to the table.
- And as for the monsters...
