Similar Deviations
Quite a few of you have successfully completed your submissions for the contest and already uploaded your art, but there are also a few that contacted me regarding the time limit on the contest, and asked for me to extend it, as they would have to rush their final piece. So we decided to give you all a bit more time on this, and extend the contest deadline until 15/08/13. We feel that it's more than enough time for you to complete your piece and submit it, plus it gives some extra time for people who have already completed their entries to re-visit them and add final touches if necessary.

Kind Regards, absolutejackass.

CONTEST

So here's the shit! 

I've been thinking long and hard about this, with a glass of Jack Daniels, cigarette and a view over a wild forest. (true story)

I knew that the contest will be based on Post Apocalypse, but couldn't quite decide what exactly I want from this. 

And then I thought to myself. Let dem boys and girls do all the hard work! So the title is:

'My World, My Apocalypse'

It's up to you how you want to understand this title! You can't go wrong! 
It's up to you what format and media you want to use for it! You can do absolutely anything! Drawing, painting, sculpting, the list has no end. The reason why I'm giving you such a wide range of choice in this, is because I want to let your imagination and creativity run wild in this contest! As long as the final piece is related to the theme Post Apocalypse, you can go ape shit!

What you will be marked on:

:bulletgreen: Originality
:bulletgreen: Creativity
:bulletgreen: Impact 
:bulletgreen: Use Of Selected Style

What is forbidden:
:bulletred: USE OF ANY UNAUTHORISED STOCK IN YOUR PIECE (Credit PRACTICALLY EVERYTHING)
:bulletred: I can't stand modifications of pictures that belong to other artists. (Somebody's photograph is taken and drawn over in Photoshop). So none of that crap.
:bulletred: No pure nudity please... I personally don't mind a bit of flesh showing, but here on deviantART, we got a variety of people of different ages and religious beliefs, and they might find it offending. As long as the private parts are covered, it's all right!

There they were having their first picnic together. How Fionna’s heart fluttered in her chest! She was alone with Gumball, her Prince Charming, with his muscular chest, that short pink hair, that incredible face…one of Glob’s masterpieces laid beside her. He was the one who satisfied Fionna’s heart, from his charms to his gentle and calm attitude.
For Gumball Fionna was the embodiment of beauty, with the noble heart of a warrior. Never in his life had he come across another damsel with such gorgeous figure, long golden hair, coupled with those blue eyes that had melted his soft heart of gum. He wanted to serve her, to worship her, to please her in any way whatsoever. He was the knight in shining armour, while Fionna was his queen.

I guess Love really is a cruel being. It comes when a person least expects it. It takes a place in your heart making it skip a beat a little too late. And the worst part is, it makes you fall in love with a person that can never love you back.
I don’t hate love. What I do hate is pain it brings, the pain from loving her...

I feel like I finally want to tell her. Tell her how I really feel about her. But when I get too close to actually doing it, horrid memories play back in my mind.

Q: Can I draw Smoochy younger/older than 22?
A: Of course! As long as the clothes generally stay the same, you can do whatever floats your boat.
Q: Can I draw her with my OC?
A: Yes you can! However they can't be romantically engaged, and she must be the focus of the picture (this contest is about her after all)
Q: Does my entry have to be colored?
A: Nope, you're free to do black and white art, though if you go this route, your chances are better if its really nicely shaded.
Q: Does my entry have to be full body?
A: Nope. Its recommended, however I will be judging this contest on imagination, not what parts of her body you drew.
Q: Is Smoochy a Smoochum gijinka? Can I draw her in the Pokemon world?
A: Yes she is, and yes you can. But don't feel limited by it, even more than being a gijinka, shes my persona and can be in the real world or pokemon world.
Q: I have a different drawing style than most, can I still join?
A: Of course! I welcome all styles of art!
Q: Can I join?
A: Of course! The contest, and raffle are open to everyone!

Lately I've been doing work for DC Direct--the wing of DC in charge of statues, toys, etc.  It's been a nice break from PRJ.  The money is good, and it hasn't been soulless like I imagined.  Corporate gigs can go either way--sometimes they want you to do exactly what "they" want, other times they want you to do your thing unencumbered.  Luckily this was the latter.

The rates for toy designs are broken down into three parts: you get paid for the sketches, the final pencils and the inks.  For this gig, the inking rate was higher than my normal inking rate.  It felt good, but then I realized that 25% of my fee was for inks.  And it raised an unsettled concern that's been on my mind.

How long will inkers be needed?

In the old days they needed inkers because computers weren't yet being used in print.  I forget the name of the machine that preceded the scanner (process cameras?), but it was low-tech enough that inking was REQUIRED because the pencil lines weren't dark enough to pick up.  A side effect of this lumbering technology was that it created "inking" as an art form exclusive to print and to comics.

Imagine you're an artist working for Ben Franklin at one of his printing presses.  Ben loves your comic strip ideas and wants to publish it.  But there's a problem: scanners haven't been invented yet so your pencils won't translate.  He hands you a pen and brush and a bottle of ink and tells you to go over your pencils to make it darker.  You frown--your pencils have nice shades of gray that ink will ruin!  Surely Ben will understand that.  "Too bad!" he says while staring at some chicks walking past the window, "Take this ink and find a way to make it work.  Or you're fired."  And off he goes to get laid.

Demands like this are what gave birth to hatching, cross hatching, feathering, and other tricks to give the impression of "gray" even though there's only black and white.  Before Ben Franklin, it was the lithograph invented by some Bavarian guy in the late 1700s.  Before him, it might have been the Greeks using stone blocks or something.  Whatever the history, we have to acknowledge that it was the shortcoming of technology that gave birth to modern inking.

After Ben helped improve the mass production of newspapers, comic strips came of age.  Then comic books, then the golden age and silver age.  Then the "fat lady" Art Crumb underground age.  Then Watchmen, then Frank Miller, then the Photoshop age of comics was boosted by Image.

The 90s is when many publishers switched over to scanners and modern printing technology.  While it helped give birth to better coloring via Photoshop, it also helped make inking obsolete.  But inking survived because it was part of the identity of comic books.  Many people working in publishing still had a soft spot for the writer/penciller/INKER/colorist/letterer dynamic.  We had the technology to print pencils and colors without needed it inked, but it wasn't enough to kill off inking.  Would readers even buy books that  were just pencils?  Thus, Marvel and DC continued including inking rates.

With Wacoms and Cintiques coming of age, traditional inking is completely unnecessary.  We no longer need comics to have that "comic book style" because readers have adapted to variety of styles that Cintiques easily create.  And if it's an old fashion "comic book style" you want, Cintiques can do that too!

Obviously, most of comics is now digital.  I write to my editors digitally--phone calls aren't needed anymore.  Even though I create my art traditionally, it's scanned into digital files which is exactly where digitally created artwork ends up--there IS no distinction at the end of the day.  Comics are colored and lettered digitally, the graphics are added digitally.  The printers are digital.  And if we could find a way to automate the writing and artwork at a lower cost, you'd better believe it would happen.  Cost of iArtist (the computer program designed to create art based off the script create by iWriter)--a one time fee of $500.  Cost of hiring Sean Murphy for one 22 page issue--$10,000.

So there I am, cashing my paycheck from DC.  My inking rate still included.  But for how long?  In a few years, I wouldn't be surprised if the publishers cut out inking rates altogether in order to save money.  You can still ink if you want to, they just won't pay for it.

Like I've said before, I'm an art snob.  I like creating art the old fashioned way, and I enjoy other people's art more if I know it actually exists and isn't just on a computer somewhere.  But my values don't stop me from acknowledging what's happening around me.  I can clearly see that inking is technically obsolete.  But there will always be purists who can carve out a living.  Records are obsolete, yet there are still record shops for the music snobs.

I imagine that even if Marvel and DC stop their inking rates, the most in-demand artists could still get what they want if they fought for it.  If Bachalo wants Townsend to ink his Xmen, he'll get his way.  And if I prove myself valuable to DC, I'll still get my rates as well.  If they cut my inking rate, I'll just up my pencilling rate by the same amount.

How do you put together a great Storyboard Artist portfolio? Pixar Story Artist Ted Mathot has some great advice...
currentflavor.tumblr.com/post/…
Looks like Nickelodeon is easing up on their usual policy of 3-5 years experience needed for storyboarding jobs. I know that always frustrates new artists trying to get in to the field. A new job post separates the requirements into "Basic Quaifications" (which I assume means that they're required) and "Desired qualifications" (Which sounds to me like its preferred, but not a deal-breaker). Now they desire only 1 year of experience, but they add: "and/or training on a similar show; or equivalent combination of education and experience." The bottom line is that studios just want someone good and reliable, but they don't want to swim through an ocean of amateurish portfolios from people that are clearly not prepared for the job.

:UPDATE: Release date: December 12! :UPDATE:

Okay, so I guess everyone's noticed by now that I won't make an Advent calendar this year but a little Klaine Christmas RPG. :)

Here a few pics:
Screenshots, Rachel's and Blaine's faceset. :) And a preview video for the first map. :)

I'll give updates on the progress of this project via journal entries and on tumblr. Here a little overview over all game information I've revealed (mostly on tumblr) so far:

  • Release date: 1st week of December December 12 (hopefully)
  • Play time: no idea - maybe 2 - 3 h? I have everything planned, but I need to do all the maps and the eventing before I can give more accurate info on that
  • System requirements: Internet connection (to download it); Windows (I'm building it on a Windows XP with tiny disk space and very low RAM, because my PC is 11 years old (same goes for the graphic board). So… if your PC is less than 11 years old it should be no problem to play the game. It won't work on Mac because I'm making this game with a Windows program. I'll try out some emulators and link the best ones when I put the game download link online. A friend of mine will try to convert it for mac, but we don't know if we can make it at all or if we succeed if it'll be in time…)
  • Programs used: Photoshop CS 5 for Mac (for face sets, overlay/parallax mapping, pics and some sprites) and RPG Maker VX Ace
  • Price: 0 $ - it'll be completely free (of course it will, it's not like I own glee or anything XD)
  • Story: Klaine and Christmas - You can choose whether to play from Blaine's or Kurt's point of view (it also disregards most of the story lines in season 4 because I planned it long ago and I'm still in denial about the break up ^^°)
  • Maps: Kurt and Rachel's NY apartment, Blaine's room, the Hudmel house, airport & airplane, 2 tiny shopping center, a subway station
  • Additional Info:  Jesse and  Doro are helping me with the game (cause there's way too much to do to make such a little game) and there'll be a Christmas lottery again (with snow globes with this pic as a price)

That's all for now. If you have any more questions, just write a comment. :)
  • Mood: Optimism

Welcome to Painted Portrait, a new Interview series focusing on traditional artists worth keeping an eye on.  Painted Portrait interviews aim to give the community more insight into talented traditional artists and how they came to be successful with their art.  Today we are interviewing koyamori.

Thank you for allowing me to interview you, let's start off by having you introduce yourself.

Hello there!
My name is Cynthia, and I mainly use koyamori or maruti-bitamin for online handles.
I live in Toronto and have studied psychology and biology, and am currently attending college for graphic design.

What inspires your illustrations?

Childhood nostalgia and exploration of the unknown are some dominant themes that are great inspirations.  

Bakeneko district by koyamoriabove by koyamori


What are your favorite medias to work with and why do you liek them?

My favourite medium for some time is a mix of watercolours and inks. I like them because the colours are light, bright, and often can come out with unexpected results due to paint/water reacting with the paper.

What are your tools of the trade?

Some tools I always end up using are nib pens for inking, sable hair brushes for painting, and loads and loads of watercolour. These days I like to line with Pentel's red mechanical pencil because it dissolves nicely as water is added and adds a warm tone to the picture.

How long, on average, does it take you to finish one of your illustrations?

On average, probably 2 hours. Some sketchier paintings can take all of 20 minutes, but the detailed ones take up to 10+ hours.

Time by koyamoriA whale by koyamori


What inspires your stlye, how did you come by it?

Tove Jansson who is the author and artist behind the Moomin comics/novels inspired me stylistically. Also, Igarashi Mikio who created Bonobono influenced my general philosophy in terms of themes I guess. Styles develop organically over the years, so there are definitely many more artists and designers who have influenced me, but these two would be a big part of that.

At what age did you begin painting and do you have any formal training (art school etc)?

I started to paint at 15 or 16, mainly for a high school art class. I don't have formal training, but I did tag along to a few drawing classes and life drawing sessions.

Are there any artists or other inspirations which have helped you become inspired and or progress with your art?

Since artists have already been mentioned, the other major inspiration toward art would probably be my childhood. I spent the first few years of my life in China where there was a lot of change and the countrysides were quickly being rebuilt into small cities. When I moved to Japan, there was a lot of nature in conjunction to human living, and I was exposed to the culture there.
I think having moved around a lot and seeing the different ways in which people live was a big influence.  

box of things by koyamorimuffler by koyamori


What is the most rewarding aspect of completing a work of art for you?

I enjoy the painting process the most, because it helps me relax and for that moment it's the one thing I need to focus on.

What advice do you have for other aspiring artists?

Draw as much as you can everyday.

Is there anything else you'd like to say in closing?

Thank you for reading!

Current Update, Feb 9: It seems that the artworks created with the DA stock models have been taken down from all sites. This is good news! I hope the artist will be in touch with the models they have used. It seems possible through what I've heard from these models in their research that this artist may have found these images on a 'free stock' site. Please be aware of any site that is set up with a huge variety of fabulous, high quality images for commercial use, for free. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

-- --

Original Post:

An Italian artist has been using stock images from DA's portrait models as the source of her professional work without notifying the models or crediting them. In most cases, these models do not allow commercial use of their stock without permission.

Here is a list of models discovered to have been used so far.
:iconrobynrose: Plain Portrait by RobynRose
:icontasastock: :thumb129588300:
:iconaimeestock: Shampoo Commercial 2 by AimeeStock
:iconniniel-stocks: (user is no longer active but this deviation Before and After Model by TheWorldIsTooSmall used and credited the same stock) used in

RobynRose was the first to notice the use of her image without permission.

I suspect that since so many of these works share a similar source it is likely that many others in the gallery have their source in DA's stock galleries.

This is a serious matter to which I would like to bring more attention. If you are using someone's face in your artwork, be sure you have that person's permission before you go about selling it.
