About Artists on Writers
Writers will always find inspiration in the visions of artists, always feeling compelled to tell the stories behind the moments captured in artists’ unforgettable images,
Artists will always find inspiration in the words of writers, always feeling compelled to lend visual reality and habitat to the characters described in the scribe’s haunting words.
I was inspired to create this series by =naikki while looking through her gallery of diverse artwork and reading through her journals which are focused on her favorite inspiring writers and thinkers. I felt certain there must be beautiful artwork in the form of portraits and tributes to these writers and their stories. I found most of naikki's choices of quotes to be
The Fairy Tale, A Lifelong ResonanceA thousand years tradition of scaring children at bedtime continues for children of all ages. News of the discovery of 500 “new” fairy tales collected over 150 years ago [link] in Germany and locked away in a forgotten archive has me thinking about the enduring importance of these narrative treasures in the lives of human societies worldwide. My worry, have fairy tales been marginalized by modernism?The Fairy Tale, A Lifelong Resonance in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

Humans Becoming Robots, Robots Becoming HumanOn March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a “Google Driverless Car.” The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, instantly increasing limited human speed, strength, endurance and accuracy.Humans Becoming Robots, Robots Becoming Human in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recently worked on “Wreck It Ralph,” and has become active in the story department, where he dreams up fresh narratives and new characters with fellow Story Artists and Disney directors.
But more and more, he is being recognized for his own style and own creations
Things and stuff and Features x 10Very busy working on 3D for both my personal project and the PSIV Fan Game. While I can't show off too much more of the personal project, once I get to sit down and really get some of the fan game models going I'll be sure to upload them. Until them, expect updates to be slloooooow.Things and stuff and Features x 10 in Personal More Like This

Calling all inquisitive minds!In order to help us get a handle on our :iconamateurleague: #AmateurLeague characters' personalities and backgrounds, the owners have opened up askblogs in which you can ask them about anything and get a response sooner or later (as long as it isn't entirely asinine, please don't waste our time!) Some of them have their lore out in the open but others will only reveal it through being questioned about it. Either way, toss a few questions this way, they can even be somewhat LoL related but it's not guaranteed that these characters have any interaction with them. You don't need to make a tumblr account to do it as long as anonymous questions are being allowed on the blog.Calling all inquisitive minds! in Personal More Like This

understand a painting study dont just copyThis is purely an observation from my point of view but whenever i see a study or painting based on a masterpiece or a screen plate. The results are almost in every case very good.So this tells me that our ability to copy is quite good and its not really required to be a high level artist.Junior level to mid level ones can pull this off easily too. Everything you need to know is already in the image we are trying to copy so it becomes a recipe for us.understand a painting study dont just copy in Personal More Like This
the important thing though is to not "copy" it but to understand it and deconstruct a work method from it.And if you understand that then the work based from your own mind will be alot better.
When i see this kind of work , for me its not the level of detail and accurcy that one puts in the copied artwork that impresses me, but the images based on that learned knowledge afterwards. And to tell you the truth not many people understand this knowledge or are aware of how important it is to understand it.But the interesting phenomenon is that
the myth about talentMany people are under the assumption many of the high profile artists in the digital art community are mainly good because of talent. This is not completely true(in my opinion). What does make them great is the simple fact of constant and regular practice. But if you still like to cling to the word, then talent is just in other words an ambition and motivation. This word,"talent" has been branded with something that you think is something that can only be inherited and if you dont have it you are doomed to fail. Many people has lost potential careers because of this.the myth about talent in Personal More Like This
well folks let me put that myth to rest because i think anyone with ambition and motivation can learn any tool and any skill.And if you are not learning it, it is because you are not working hard enough on it.its simple as that.The practice will open your eyes and you will develop to see things in different ways, once again this has nothing to do with talent. Once your understanding of all the levels of art gets wide

How to make a boring character?To go straight to the point and answer that question: don't say a word about his/her/its/insertyourpronounhere personality.How to make a boring character? in Personal More Like This
Ya know, ten years ago I couldn't even imagine how much characters people can create. I talk about single persons' creations. dA is full of them. Of course, I am more focused to non-human characters (because creatures are creatures, dammit, if I want a good human character, I go out and ask things from any living person). The thing with everybody/one/thing is, though, that if you leave personality out, you have an empty shell. No matter how pretty it is, then it's just a pretty creature without a character.
I have noticed a lot of the previously said issue during the years. Especially lately I've become more interested about single persons' headworlds. It is somehow fascinating to take visit to somebody's head - and how else to do that except reading about their characters. If there's a good description (and good doesn't need to be long - it can be, but quality ov
