I've been thinking of doing a monthly Q&A type news article with a panel discussion format featuring answers by some digital artists who are friends of mine or whom I admire.
There'd be a different digital art topic each month with about a half dozen or so questions for that topic. I've already sent out the first batch of questions to about 20 artists, and I have ideas for topics and questions for future months.
I think it'd be really great to get input from anyone out there who's interested and has questions of their own. Are there any topics you'd love to see about digital art? Any questions that you have that you'd love to ask artists? Ever been too shy to ask something? I'd be happy to ask for you. ^_^
To give you an idea, some topic ideas and questions I've been throwing around:
Learning and materials
-- questions on tablets
-- artists' opinions on tracing
Anime & Fanart
-- their opinions on fanart
-- their opinions on whether it's necessary to do realism to learn anime art
-- what do they think of brushes and pre-made textures
-- favorite tools for creating textures in digital art
If you have suggestions, I'd love to hear from you. Please either comment here or send me a note with "DAD" (digital art discussion) in the subject line. Depending on the number of suggestions I get, I may or may not use your question. Or, if many other people ask the same thing, I might re-word your question to include elements from other people.
