1) How do you use social media to grow as an artist? : I Use Tags, Creating A Lot Of Arts, Etc

2) What are some moments where you feel you’ve reached your “100” and what skill are you working on maximizing next? : To Be Pro On A Art Of Anime, Pokemon, Etc

1.) How do you use social media to grow as an artist?
To find useful tutorials and tips from other artists. To ask them questions, to engage in conversation and for the support. With lots of challenges where you have to do something with a specific task on a daily, weekly basis (ex. Inktober) we connect with each other and push us to fulfill those challenges. I also like to see other's work to get reminded how many art medias are out there, what styles, color mixes...how much there's still to do. 


2.)What are some moments where you feel you’ve reached your “100” and what skill are you working on maximizing next?
Never had the 100 moment, nor will I ever have...because there's always the next level...there's always room to make it better and better.
Skill? umm :dummy: For now I would be even happy to even have time to paint something ...but regarding skill...be better at figure drawing, poses. That's what I lack a lot.

Orange Arrow Left [F2U]  I also have QUESTIONS FOR THE PANEL :nerd: rvmp :

In the modern, digital age where does traditional art stand? Where is its place? Is it a thing of the past and is outdated? Also in relation to social media...is digital art more preferred (regarding companies, clients, regular art viewers that use social media)? 

And also how about the future of traditional art. Will it grow and evolve together with digital art, where in some point they will merge? Or turn into a little niche where only handful of artists will be doing it?

Re #1) I love how there's a tutorial for just about anything you want to learn! Just no excuses not to, haha! :)
TokyoMoonlight's avatar
TokyoMoonlight Traditional Artist
Yes, they are many...and all thanx to other artists who recognized the importance of sharing knowledge with other people. For someone like me, having social media was and still is the only way to learn art stuff and bond with other like-minded people. =D

DeviantArt is my life-line...and "YouTube" my video art tutor.  :blush:

1. I use social media, especially Instagram and DeviantArt; to find great and beautiful arts and artworks. Fanarts of our desired interests and favorite shows, even from copyrighted media, is very common for artists in the 21st century today. As an 18-year-old artist myself, I find interesting creations that I have never seen before, such as LEGO MOCs and modern houses, and I love to draw them. Even in cartoons (especially anime), I usually copy the character in a different way based on my inspiration and imagination. When I browse @ DeviantArt, my artistic talents grows, even with my patience.

2. When I reached my 100th artwork, it will be my own surprise. While traditional art is my first methodology of visual arts, I'm still practicing on digital art, which is Paint Tool SAI, and soon Adobe PhotoShop.

  Before I was online, I used to be pretty shy about my artwork. Now that I am older, I use my social media to let people check out what I have, in case of an art show or other events.

  As for being “100” in my works, it is when I really love a project I’m working on. The next time I feel that, it will be the same thing. ^^

"What are some moments where you feel you’ve reached your “100” and what skill are you working on maximizing next?"

So, reaching 100 is the ultimate Goal while there is still Hunger for even more? Why do so if 100 is already the ultimate Goal?
Don´t get me wrong, this is a good Idea and I´m happy with everyone participating. I´m just not so happy with that Question for it implies a neverending thirst for more and more and even more. This Way, true Satisfaction will never be reached, making the whole Concept feel sour - to me, at least.

Hooray for the Participants, nontheless!

Well, I'm constantly nominated to illustrate the magazine that my 5th hour class is doing, so I guess that's a start? I do a lot on Quotev, and my user there is @.Featherflame (in case anyone wanted to know...) Beware, I throw lamps..

Wow, all of these creators are so inspiring. That is the best part of DeviantArt besides the sense of community. I have a Bachelor's in Art emphasis in Digital Media, & I'm trying to grow more as a digital artist. College didn't teach me too much of the digital aspect, sadly. I'm taking the reins myself, & working on becoming more diverse in what mediums I am able to work in.

Seriously? I don't produce so much as I consume. I lost my spark years ago (if I ever had it).

1. I use social media to find other artists / designers that I admire so that I have a constant source of inspiration; it's an excellent way to broaden your horizons and see the awesome work that is being made every day. Just mind the gap (thanks Ira Glass!) and don't compare yourself to others, art is a personal / individual journey!

2. I'm the kind of creative that never feels like he's going to get to 100 - there's always room to improve. But I always strive to reach that unattainable goal, because to do anything else would be boring. So I always look at my current project and try to do better in my next. That's not to say I'm not proud of the work I've done, though!

Looking forward to the festival, see you on Saturday!
