DEPTHCORE XLV: PRIMAL

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 24, 2013, 4:05 PM


The Depthcore Collective is thrilled to release it's 45th Chapter of work "Primal". Consisting of over sixty original works of art, photography and music the collective used this Chapter as a launching pad to explore concepts of nature, beast, instincts and primal origin.


Whilst all of our artists rose admirably to the challenge, Ari Wenkle delivered an especially powerful collection of work, exploring various aspects of the core themes and bringing them to life with in boldly intricate executions. I had the pleasure of interviewing Ari to learn more about him and his artistic life - be sure to check out the transcript here.

We're excited to share this work with you, and look forward to hearing your thoughts - please feel free to share with us via Twitter or Facebook.



Until next time,

Justin Maller
Creative Director
The Depthcore Collective

BLOGSPOT

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 4, 2012, 1:02 PM


Hey guys. Yea I haven't been around much, doing alot of drawing and learning! Not many 3d pieces for the next two years- going to be focusing way more on traditional and painting. Good news though, when I'm done with Art Center (or even the next two years of work) those traditional skills will help my 3D immensely, and I'll be able to create some epic environments...

If you would like, I invite you to check my blog: fmacmanus.blogspot.com
I will be posting sketches and paintings on there, daily to weekly. The work will be crappy at first of course, but working till 2AM every day will make me improve pretty quickly. When I start at AC, I'll get another jump in skill...

Hope you guys are doing well. Peace out

Depthcore XLIII, TIME, and a personal note.

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 19, 2011, 3:22 PM


Hello everyone!

The new Depthcore chapter is out, you should ALL see it, really amazing and inspiring works by some of my favorite artists.
depthcore.com/chapter/time/

This is technically my second release with the group, although last exhibit didnt have access to the forum and all the great people that lurk inside.
I really have to say I have already learned so much from these down to earth, just superbly awesome people. I really didn't expect everyone to be so nice and welcoming. I already have some great friends I can count on for almost anything. It is more like a family than people say, and I am glad to be involved... Can't wait to start work for the next chapter.

The laptop thing has set me back a bit, but I already have some pieces planned for me next couple; Keep watching! ;)

Hope you are all doing great, merry christmas and all that holiday stuff.

Robbed :(

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 4, 2011, 11:29 AM


Hey guys-

I was robbed last night, my laptop is gone, and with it a ton of my files. I had two near finished pieces ready to publish and now theres no way i can.
Good news, my Depthcore work was backed up and I can still release/print it. But ive lost a ton of stuff, including all of my schoolwork, essays, college stuff too.
Its going to be alot harder for me to work without a laptop, since most of my time is spent at school. Ill just be less productive now I guess, i cant afford another. I wont be on MSN at all either. ;___;

What I'll be doing for the next three months

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 5, 2011, 5:59 PM


Hello guys :)
I just want to let you know that you shouldn't expect anything huge from me in the next three months.
Right now I'm knee-deep in college application portfolio requirements :D
That means the majority of what I will put out until February are concept sheets of already completed pieces.
There is an exception, I have a bunch of paintings coming, and two sci fi pieces... but that might be it for a while.
Dont worry though! I'll get back on track :)

Free Hi-Res Watercolor Textures

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 8, 2011, 8:17 AM


www.depthcore.com/article/reso…
www.depthcore.com/article/reso…
www.depthcore.com/article/reso…

These are some hand made watercolors produced on mylar, created with Photoshop use in mind; specifically, they can be adapted to be used as brushes, or used directly as texture materials.

Mylar is a plastic material, and while it is a bit more difficult to use than watercolor paper, it definitely gives an edge to any medium and stands out as 'different'. In the past, mylar has been a very popular material; but more so for a 'layering' technique because of its low opacity. It's also been used for paintings and drawings, but rarely watercolors– and very rarely are such images published online.

While watercolors are all around online these days, it's hard to find a stock that is high quality and hasn't been overused. When I was looking for some new watercolors online I became a bit annoyed, and decided I would create a batch for personal use. I am sure people can play around with these; don't be afraid to experiment and clip out certain portions, to use adjustments and so on! These days a designer needs every resource available– so whether you're looking for some nice colors to set on soft light or a hi-res texture to multiply, I hope these help!

HEARTSURGE EXHIBIT D: AWAKENING

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 4, 2011, 4:58 PM


The Heartsurge family is extremely proud to release their first themed exhibition "Exhibit D: Awakening". Yet again we decided to challenge ourselves to work along the theme of waking up, both in a real way and a surreal sense. These past months our artists worked hard to bring you 31 high quality works of art and music to wake you up. What you can expect is something that crosses the reality and delves deep into your sense of interpretation, both through your eyes and ears.

We decided to underline the new talent that arrived since our third exhibition in the shape of German photographer Benny Brand and chose him as the well deserved featured artist of Exhibit D: Awakening. Benny was one of the first new artists who joined after our well received Exhibit C. With his creative mind he submitted some amazing photography as well as proving himself to be a valuable asset to the collective.
Read the interview with him here! heartsurge.net/releases/exhibi…

And last but certainly not least. We are extremely excited to bring you V3 of Heartsurge. Aside from making the exhibition itself, our web-oriented members worked hard on making this a true representation of what Heartsurge is about.

Now that we have told you everything we can tell you, sit back, breathe in and immerse yourself in the phenomenon of Awakening.

Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 20, 2011, 10:16 AM











The Luminarium presents our 14th exhibit and it is one of our biggest-an exhibit our artists have attacked with energy. Sound, movement, and life, they all have one thing in common...energy. Energy can be found in some of the strangest and subtle forms, from right here on our very own planet to the deep areas of space. Energy is everywhere. We may not always be looking for it or see it with our eyes, but hidden beneath what we cannot see is something powerful and once it takes over you, there's no stopping it. It's up to you to harness that energy and use it.









The Heartsurge collective is extremely proud to present their third exhibition, Exhibit C. With over 40 pieces of art, presented by artists from every corner of the globe, the artists pushed themselves to their limits. Exhibit C represents a new chapter for the Heartsurge collective with music pieces being featured for the first time. This step is important for the collective, which seeks to improve upon itself with each release.

For this exhibition, we decided to highlight the efforts of Jake Logsdon. Joining the group before the start of this exhibition he has already proved himself to be of great value to the collective, both as an artist and as a person. Read the interview on our website.

That saying, we can do nothing but direct you to the exhibition itself. We hope that it inspires you, as the experience in creating this pack was profound.

You can find the exhibit here:

-The Heartsurge art collective
With the release of our latest pack, Dream vs. Reality, our artists have truly painted an illustrious landscape of dreamy and conceptual pieces. These 44 submissions by an extraordinary crew of international artists will truly stir your thoughts with such grace and eloquence that you may find yourself momentarily absorbed by this demonstration of undoubtedly profoud and remarkable skill.

Take a moment to view this compelling pack, and see for yourself, in all quixotic splendor, the thin fabric that divides our dreams from reality.

This pack has a special meaning for me, it signifies the point in my life where i am satisfied with my style. I now have a style that I can manipulate how i want, that im sure i will always create a piece better than my last, basically what ive been working at for the past months. These pieces took foreverrr lol, but i felt really good about them.
Another thing, I was honored to work with Clyzm on Lucidity this release, we will be making many collabs in the future, so just wait ;)

Go check out the rest of the amazing art at cms!! NAO!
