Pinspiration for Deviants

Traditional Art Week

Pinterest has a reputation for being the site for mommy-and-me projects and crafty DIY adventures. For the artist, however, Pinterest is a trove of resources and inspiration if you know where to look.

Here are 5 of the main things I use pinterest for. I hope they bring you some "pinspiration" of your own. Use ctrl-click to open the links in another window and save the tab for later!

All art featured is from your fellow deviants!

Figure Drawing

Nothing beats drawing from a life model. However, most people don't have regular access to live models. Before pinterest finding images or photos to draw from was taxing, because a google search for "nude model" doesn't get the exact sort of images that I like to draw from!

These boards that I follow might give you a good starting point!

Art Journal and Sketchbook

I wish I worked in my sketchbook every single day. Sometimes the hardest thing is to just find a place to start! I keep a board of sketchbook pages as well as follow a few more, so that whenever I'm struck with blank page syndrome, I always have some images to prompt me.

pandemicartstudy Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2020

Hi everyone! For my undergraduate thesis study at University of Toronto, I'm looking for participants to complete an online survey about art-making experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. While you're completing the survey, it will prompt you to upload a photo of your artwork as it is a requirement for this study. This is for me to examine how people cope with stress or enhance well-being using art during this time. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes of your time. If you're interested in participating in the study, please click the link! Thank you so much.

Note: Know that the survey prompts for your gmail. I am unable to change the setting but you all remain anonymous. The actual survey only asks for your initials and won't collect any email information from you.
