Community Project: The Vector Colouring Book!
:star: The Vector Colouring Book :star:
At some point in our lives the majority of us have encountered colouring books. This could have been from your childhood, maybe your younger family members or your children... or if you're like me as a way to relieve stress!
These books of printed line art were coloured in by traditional tools... of coloured pencils, crayons and felt tips. For some of us, this was the doorway into learning and appreciating art.
There was a lot of satisfaction and joy in being able to finish a page or even a book! Often the hardest challenge was to stick inbetween the lines.
It's with this nostalga that I bring you a two stage Colouring Book project!

Project Educate: Vector Week - Round Up
Introduction
What a week it's been! I know I've had a lot of fun and judging from my recent poll, others have too! It's been great to see the week has been ran by not just myself but members of the vector community. Not only that, but so many people have helped promote the event. In both cases, I'm extremely thankful.
So what happened during the week?
What is Vector Art?
In digital art there are two layer formats: raster and vector. Raster formats are based in pixels and vector is based in paths and points.
When you resize a raster image, you are expanding the pixels. Your program has to try to estimate what the colours would be for the additional pixels created. Due to this, the image loses it's clarity and creates a pixel effect.
When you resize a vector image, you are increasing the distance between the points. Due to this, the image doesn't lose it's clarity and doesn't pixellate.
The key element of vector is that it's infinitely scalable without a

Project Educate: The 100% Vector Rule
Introduction
It's time to talk pure vector... 100% scalable baby and why the galleries ask you to post only 100% vector on deviantART's vector galleries. Not only that but learn why blurs are raster effects! Oh yes, we're getting a little technical again.
Like other articles during Project Educate, here comes the definition...

Project Educate: Exposure and the Vector Community
Introduction
Warning: This article contains the brutal truth. :giggle:
So you're either new to deviantART or just gotten into vector and you're wanting to gain exposure for the work you do. You'll find many articles out there which are all about increasing your exposure or joining certain groups to gain watchers, but you might find these are more appealing to generic digital art forms or even photography. From my years here at deviantART, I can offer you some advice on ways to help gain yourself more exposure within the vector community.
First, on with the definition... not surprisingly, knowing what vector art is is one of the big things you should know if you want exposure in the vector community!

Knowing what vector is, is the first step. Without knowing what the medium is you wont be able to appreciate it's unique qualities and strengths.

Project Educate: Vector Week is all about learning more about our favourite medium vector and embracing what it's capable of. So for the seasoned vector artist and the new artist a like, I bring you "Evolution of Vector Art".

7 important traits for any artist
Here's a checklist of 7 important traits to becoming a successful artist. It's not the 'ultimate top 7' but these are the questions I thought of first. Either way they are extremely beneficial questions to ask yourself.
1 Do you draw even when you don't feel like it? It's an essential skill to being a successful artist.
2 Do you know what motivates you? The more you know about what makes you tick, the more productive you can become.
3 Do you constantly fight past your comfort zone? It's the best way to evolve quickly.
4 Do you set aside some time at least once a week to work on your own stuff? Keep those creative juices flowing!
5 Are you passionate about the work that you do? Keeping the passion burning will lead you to bigger and better jobs. Everyone wants to work with passionate people.
6 Are you prepared for the opportunities you're waiting for? Prepare for the opportunity now and they will come sooner than you think.
7 Are you nice to others? The most important ingredient to beco

Thoughts on developing a good style
A common question I get asked is how to develop a good style.
Here are some of my thoughts on this subject...
Don't think what kind of style do people want. Just be yourself & search for knowledge. Style is developed through knowledge.
Just painting or drawing how you naturally do is not enough to develop a good solid style. If art is an interpretation of something we can relate to LIFE, then you have to learn about the different aspects of LIFE to get better at art. Nothing is sadder than seeing an artist with a great idea but doesn't have the knowledge or skill to make it happen the way they had initially envisioned it. I still have this problem from time to time so I search for the knowledge and know how to make the idea I initially had to appear the way I want it to.
Your ideas are what makes you unique. Once you have the idea, you search for the knowledge to make those ideas happen the way you envisioned it. I don't know about all of you but I can bet that when most of you learn s

Strategic thinking for 2011
Some more thoughts... this entry it's on why we need to think about strategy now more than ever.
We live in a time where we are more connected then ever. Almost all information is free and people are absorbing it like sponges. As a result, we've seen more advancements and evolution in everything around us, especially in things of artistic nature and the internet. For example, Painters are painting at such high levels and at such young ages. The bar is constantly being raised. So now that more and more people are able to paint at a professional level, you need more than talent to stand out in the industry. One of the things I believe has separated my career from some others is that I love thinking about strategy. With every disadvantage you think you have, there is an advantage hidden in there some where.
For example: If you are very young you could think of yourself as inexperienced in the art industry or a talented new artist with fresh ideas.
If you are much older you could think tha

Stock images are pretty important in the Vexel world. Nearly every vexel artist has used a stock image at least once.
They are such a great inspiration!
