Devious Journal Entry[EN/US] (bad translation, sorry)
Hi to all,
I'm french and I don't speak english very fluently, so I'm going to write my journal entries in both languages, I think.
I created this gallery after I discovered Jake Lennington (aka Simpspin)'s amazing work. For those who don't know him, he created a Simpsons spin-off, centered on the new Simpson kid, Eric, born three years after Maggie. As a natural emotional, I really felt a great sorrow when I heard that he stopped drawing, only a few weeks after I saw his work. I think I've never been in mourning like this in my entire life.
So I made a resolution : as I never could draw anything good in my life, I was going to devote myself intensively, in order to perpetuate Mr Lennington's work.
Consequently, the first drawings you'll see here will be attempts to reproduce his drawings, what I do to train.
I hope you'll like my work, and perhaps you'll help me to better draw.
Thank you, and especially thank you Jake Lennington.
Hit the brakes!!!It's been an interesting 3 days because I might changing career paths that will be better for me because I'll possibly be making a lot more money, but on the down side drawing and photography will cease till the winter.More Like This
I hope to know by Friday if I'll have a new job waiting...
10 ways to get inspiredDear, deviantart fellow artistsMore Like This
Inspiration is such an important subject for every artist. When we have it - we feel amazing and full of creative energy, but when we lack it, we tend to be anxious and procrastinate on things we really like to do.
So here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Go outside
We tend to spend way too much time indoors. Try to do some plein-air painting/drawing. Explore the world around you - It's not only good for your health, but It's also a great way to get inspired by nature, people in streets, clouds and sunsets etc.
2. Gather pictures in inspiration folder
If you see some amazing art, photography - save it on your computer. Or fave it in dA, or collect in your tumblr/pinterest board. Look at that folder every once in a while. If you see some really advanced and cool art
10 ways to become a better artistDear, deviantart fellow artistsMore Like This
How to become better at art? How to gain necessary skill and how to stay motivated and inspired?
There are no right, or wrong answers to these questions, as we all are different and we have our own creative journeys - but here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Make art with your heart
Make the art that you enjoy to create. Make what resonates with you, put your heart in it (not literally) and it will show through your artworks.
2. Be consistent
Commit to yourself. Do something daily, even if it's just a sketch. Perhaps, do a study every morning or make speedpaintings. You may not see the progress at first, but you shouldn't get discouraged by that. Not every single one of your artworks has to be a masterpiece and it's totally okay to have a bad drawing every once
