Lighting your artworkLight is color. Painting light means depending on colors - how you handle them, how well-tuned your instincts are, and looking. Unfortunelty, understanding how to paint light means understanding how to paint in general. It is all connected.Lighting your artwork6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
hibbary wrote a terrific article called Thinking in 3D that I highly recommend everyone who want to improove on their artworks to read - its content very much applies to how you have to think when it comes to painting light. Light is three dimensional, it moves and bounces and hits shapes at various angles depending on where it comes from. If you do not think about this in a three dimensional room, your will not be able to grasp the idea of light and how to put it into a picture. In a way you migth say that the key to understanding light and putting it into your paintings, is to think in 3D.
I've tried to analize the different parts of painting with different kind of light, to find a red t

Conceptualising - First Article
Before I begin I would like to say that this is my thought process and ways of conceptualising images and ideas. You do not have to follow everything I say as these are guidelines to help you along the way and many other artists will have different ways and ideologies. With more experience concepts are easier to execute.
WHAT DOES CONCEPTUAL MEAN?
Well basically it's about an idea(s), thought(s) or feeling(s). Resolving or portraying them from your creative mind as best as you can make it your concept. An i
Character SheetsACT I: The Character SheetCharacter Sheets4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A character sheet, containing both imagery and wording, have been in use for millions of years.
First developed by the dinosaurs, it was a surefire method used to captivate smaller prey. The prey would see the reading material in front of them, and that would coax them into standing in one place, just long enough so the big dinosaur could sneak up from behind and eat them.
But in our modern society, a character sheet serves a much different purpose. They are used now to explain our characters to other people.
So to cut to the chase, let me say: WHY would you need to explain your character to someone else? The point of the story itself is to present, explain and develop a character.
Well there's a variety of reasons I guess... Fun, boredom, but the actual reason is because you have business with the people reading it.
The purpose of a character sheet is to both remind you, and inform other artists about what is needed to depict your charac

Thinking in 3DA number of my watchers asked me to turn this journal into a news article:Thinking in 3D6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What I'd like to talk about is a trick that has helped me to become better at 2D art. I'm sure many of you have heard that it's always better to draw from real life and from a model, and that tracing doesn't help you learn, but I don't know if anyone's ever explained why. I don't think anyone has ever told me. So I'm going to discuss how to make the best of different reference resources in order to get more out of drawing practice by thinking of your figure(s) in three dimensions.
When we make a drawing, painting, or any kind of 2D artwork, we're breaking down a 3D image onto a 2D plane. Even cartoons are representing a 3D object; it's just been taken further from a realistic painting to its barest structure.
This is an important thing to keep in mind while practicing drawing because it becomes a habit, especially for those people who like to dr

It's been a while since I posted an informative article, this one is specifically for my student LostWithinDreams as she actually requested me to write something that she could learn from. So I hope I can help teach you guys something.
What is a critique?
Pointers to aid in critiques and tips you can apply to your own artworks
Creative ways to enhance a piece
Below I will try to point out tips that you can mention in your critiques which you can also apply to your own artwork to help build on the structure of your critiques and works. It is lengthy; I'll try not to bore you by adding some photos to spice it up. So go grab some popcorn or your favourite snack while you read if you can multitask of course

BZG Game and FB!So whaddya know, the Bizenghast game kickstarter didn't exactly meet its goal! But you know what? That's OK! Not just because we now have outsider interest and some contacts to talk to about getting it made anyhow, without KS funding, but because we got to see just how MUCH Bizenghast means to everyone!BZG Game and FB!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
We raised 50 GRAND, an enormous sum for a video game on Kickstarter that isn't well-known already! Most successful Kickstarter video games only raise 20 grand or less! We DOUBLED that amount! And that's an amazing thing! More than that, I got letters from new fans, people who had never heard of the series until this campaign, who read about it on the sites that promoted the campaign and later went to buy the series for themselves...and really loved it! A whole new group of happy fans were made just by this campaign. And the fans that already exist? Well, we learned just how generous and dedicated you guys can really be!&

Shared info.Hey artist.Shared info.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yeah, you. I have a question. Do you want to be a professional artist? Really? Are you sure?
OK, I will share what I have learned as I worm my way into the professional artist world.
1: Get good. Pretty obvious right? But it is important. And to be good you have to be bad. For a long time. And that is true for all of us. Even your favorite artist had a period he/she sucked. So don't rush it. Just do art. Draw, paint, sculpt, whatever drives you. The more you do it the faster you clear the bad out. So create.
2: Get out there. Seriously. No one is going to show up on your doorstep and beg you to work on their project. (well, it's doubtful anyone will) Get online. Have a deviant art page. A Facebook page. An online portfolio. Get on other art forums. Really, networking is how you get the foot in the door. A lot of times it's who you know, not what you know.
3: And by network, I don't just mean shove your art in the face of people. Comment on their posts, fav things, if you
