Dreamy Theodor KittelsenAs I've previously promised, after the articles about Sulamith Wülfing and about John Bauer, the time comes for an article about Theodor Kittelsen.Dreamy Theodor Kittelsen3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
...Theodor Severin Kittelsen, being a great representant of the Golden Age of Illustration, is one of the countless artists who received more attention and appreciation a long time after their death. I don't say "proper attention", it's still far from it.
His depictions of Scandinavian folklore creatures are said to be equally cannon to the trolls portrayed by the definitely more famous John Bauer. But, unlike Bauer, Kittelsen didn't focus just around trolls (which are, you must admit that, most of Bauer's creations - although his sudden death at young age is
Setting up Shots - Storytelling ResourceThis will be good for anyone who wants to get across clear story information in storyboarding and film and can probably be applied to comics. Granted there are huge differences with the graphic quality of comics, but this resource will explain thirds, if you don't already know of them, and how to use them. This is a condensed version of information that you can talk about for days and days and there are whole books on this. It's a profession, and I'm not claiming to know everything. I'm just imparting some basics in what I know.Setting up Shots - Storytelling Resource3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Disclaimer: These shots are all taken from Kung Fu Panda 2, which I sadly do not own (I'm not intending them for any malicious or commercial use, purely educational and personal).
I'm going to take some screens from a sequence in Kung Fu Panda 2 and break them down. It all might seem like common sense, but for those of you who don't know why filmmakers make the decisions they do for a shot, here's an explanation.
Every camera shot has a purpose, none is wasted.

Draw my OC Smeargle Kid with a brand new design! All contest entries can be viewed here http://crlyxx.deviantart.com/favourites/49265729
A bit about Smeargle Kid: He doesn't yet have a name, I'm working on it, lol. Anyway, he's about 11-years-old. He's fairly innocent and he loves to paint (kind of self-explanatory). He has a tail that excretes a green, paint-like fluid, just like the pokemon Smeargle. Because of this, green has always been his favorite color. That's about all that I have about him, haha.
1) He needs to keep his hair style, his eye color, and his ears. You can change his hat and the rest of his clothing, but he

Interested in Dreamworks? Lighting ResourceSo I attended a talk by Bert Poole - He's currently serving as a CG Supervisor on their new movie "The Croods" scheduled for release in March 2013. His most recent movie, you all know of is How to Train Your Dragon, where he was also a CG Supervisor. If you don't know what that means, that means he worked on lighting C: What I'm putting below is from notes I took during his lecture.Interested in Dreamworks?

His job is to take the directors vision and make the movie look like it. He's making compositions and helping the story to better read. If you've ever talked to me on DA for three or more posts, you might have heard me blab about my major and what I'd like to do. I'd like to do into Lighting, animation second. I just don't feel my skills are as suited for animation, even though I really enjoy it.
Before they start lighting, they work on color Keys

Golden Age of IllustrationGolden Age of Illustration3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When in the second half of the 19th century newspapers and illustrated books became popular and widespread thanks to improvements in printing technology, many artists found their base to spread their skills. The official time span of the Golden Age of Illustration is said to be from 1880s to 1920s, but it varied a little bit between Europe and America.
While European illustrators were influenced mostly by the Pre-Raphaelites, Art Nouveau and Post-Impressionists (especially by Les Nabis, a group of Parisian artists), their American colleagues focused around Howard Pyle's Brandywine School of American Illustration in the Brandywine Valley.
Amongst the most popular artists of this time we find Arthur Rackham (UK), Howard Pyle (US), Ivan Bilibin (Russia), Theodor Kittelsen (Norway), Edmund Dulac (France), John Bauer (Sweden), Beatrix Potter (UK), N.C. Wyeth (US), Sulamith Wülfing (

Education and inspirations
He was born on the 16th of August 1876 (it was Wednesday) in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Before he became a student of the great Ilya Repin, he studied at the Art School of Anton Ažbe in Munich in 1898, so you can see that he gathered quite a good art education.
From 1902 to 1904 he travelled around Russian North. He became fairly inspired by the folklore of these a

Through Sulamith's EyesThrough Sulamith's Eyes3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I consider Sulamith Wülfing being one of my most beloved illustrators of all the time - ever since I found her works. What do I find especially exquisite in her pictures? The colours she used. The way she used to draw and paint hands and cloth. Generally.
Who was Sulamith Wülfing?
She was born in 1901 in Elberfeld, Rhine Province of the Kingdom of Prussia, as a child of Karl and Hedwig Wülfing. For her further existence and creativity, important was the fact that her parents were Theosophists (as wikipedia says: Theosophy refers to systems of esoteric philosophy concerning, or investigation seeking direct knowledge of, presumed mysteries of being and nature, particularly concerning the natur
