GraysLast week when I said that I wouldn't be doing con sketches of copyrighted characters, I had no idea that the news would get the coverage that it did. But seeing as how I helped poke the hornet's nest--and having taken the time to read the opinions of readers and other artists--I feel like it would be helpful if I responded to help clarify what's been happening.Grays3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, I think that what happened regarding this issue highlighted the BEST of our industry. I'm thrilled with the results, although I don't find Marvel's statement reassuring (more on that later). When we learned that Marvel was pursuing the $17,000 from Friedrich, we came together as concerned professionals and fans and managed to affect the situation. Even though we disagreed, at least we weighed out the options. And we even came together to set up funding to help out Friedrich. With the use of Twitter, blogging, and proper action from the media outlets, w

I hope everyone of you have a wonderful holiday time and have a good start in the new year.
I had a nice time with my family and some of my best friends. Tomorrow the "real world" have us again in their greedy claws so I decide to remind myself of really great works of 2013. I started with training basics, before I come back with commercial works.

A Poem for you!!!!...:)LIFE comes into no guarantees,no time outsA Poem for you!!!!...:)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
no second chances,you just have to live life to the fullest,
laugh as much as you can,spend all your money,
tell someone what they mean to you,tell someone off,
speak out,dancein the pouring rain,hold someones hand,
comfort a friend,pig out,fall asleep watching the sun come up,
stay up late,be a flirt,smile until your face hurts,
don't be afraid to take chances or fall in love....and most of all
live the moment because every second you spend angry or upset
is a second of happiness you can never get back.....<3
a friendly advice for you guys with the form of a poem!!!!!!!

The Key is in Your Head
“The Secret Garden” was a serialized children’s story, by Frances Hodgson Burnett, written in 1910—11. It’s all about a troubled little girl coming alive in a secret place she alone has found the key to. Today, one’s “secret garden” evokes any place a person goes to be alone with their most private thoughts—that place sometimes existing only in mind in fantasy or memory.
“Of course there must be lots of Magic in the world,” he said wisely one day, “but people don't know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are goi

No More Unauthorized ArtworkRegarding the debate of whether comic artists should continue selling unauthorized prints/sketches of characters they don't own, I think Bissette and his legal advisor are 100% correct. So from now on, I won't be doing any sketches or commissions at shows of any character that I don't own. Am I rolling over in fear of Marvel? Maybe, but as it states below, they're in their legal right to come after me if there's ever a dispute. I love to complain about the Big Two, but I can't (in good conscience) get upset at them if I'm breaking the rules myself. Being DC exclusive, maybe I can get a waiver that allows me to sketch DC characters, so I'll keep you updated.No More Unauthorized Artwork3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Art Analysis #10: Dance by Alphonse MuchaBy Alphonse MuchaArt Analysis #10: Dance by Alphonse Mucha5 years ago in Personal More Like This
This analysis copyright Scott M. McDaniel, 2009.
I ended up last week by saying I'd do a Maxfield Parrish piece this time, but I lied horribly. The Parrish piece I'd picked is Daybreak, one of his most popular and well known. It's based on the principles of Dynamic Symmetry. I need some more time to work through that, so I'll do it three weeks from now. Instead, I'm going to do Dance by Alphonse Mucha. It's part of a series of four panneaux based on the muses (some of them, anyway). Aside from Dance, there are (from left to right) Poetry, Music, and Painting. This Art Nouveau style may have come before the term "pinup," but hey, these are pinups.
You can see the common layout and circular frame motif. I'll concentrate on Dance, but keep in mind that they're a set designed to be displayed together in a room. Mucha was one of the first t

Do you also find your nearly-packed-and-going-for-holidays inspiration when looking at some artworks?Bringing Back Your Inspiration3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today I'd like to share with you just a small part of works that have been inspiring me for some time now and pieces I come back to every now and then to discover their beauty, creativity or mood. I know that some of them may have already been featured by me at some point but I hope it won't spoil you the fun and that you'll still find something new to .
I hope you'll enjoy them and that this small feature will help to bring back your inspiration (if it's also about to leave you and go on holidays).

Welcome to the 9th in the series of The F Word. Recently I asked my watchers in a poll about their one favourite work by an artist in deviantART, with a reason as to why they chose it, even if it wasn't mandatory. I also have a few more wonderful works to feature as well along with some other information around dA including contests (including exciting contests happening for deviantART's 11th birthday)!

This analysis copyright Scott McDaniel, 2012.
The Image, Part 1
Not too long ago I started working on some drawings in which I needed to draw water, mountains, and trees in ink. For example, in Fairy Tales I tackled both up-close and mid-distance forest and trees. In Knotwork in the Skye mountains and water were the problem of the day.
While I'm not completely happy with the results, I thought I'd share some of the drawings by Osamu Tezuka that I referred to several times to try to work out doing nature with ink. All three of the main pictures I'm showing here are from his Buddha series. The one above is from Volume 8, the last one. Now, when I look at that I'd call it fairly realisti
