Pinspiration for Deviants

Sat Aug 1, 2015, 12:31 PM by jempavia:iconjempavia:

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.
