How are you cats all doing today?
I trust everybody is well and kicking ass and taking names. I personally have been -super- productive of late since I recently got a FULL copy of Bandicam software for my laptop. So I have been recording gameplay sessions of WoW/Diablo 3 and many other games and stuff I enjoy. Further, I have one recording posted of me drawing that came out fairly decent for a first attempt. In the future I will be uploading drawing stuff with more frequency once I figure out how to correctly position my webcam.
Of late I have been working on improving my art style a LOT and I have been using tons of reference for that project. I recommend that you guys also ALSO use reference material while you guys draw. Study your favourite artists, see how they utilize their skillz and techniques and go it from there. I'm NOT saying steal or rip anybody off. I AM saying use reference to inspire your OWN creativity. I personally have been studying many artists of late who are better at fashion design stuff than I am currently.
That's how one improves in anything in life...one has to use their technique over and over.
You got to want it gang! You got to feel it!!!
Art is too precious a gift to not fite for it. Anyway guys, sorry for the small rant on my behalf but I want to help as many of you guys out as I can. I am learning WITH you all. So feel free to use the art lessons that I have posted in my gallery and make good use of the skillz there. I learned my current skill set from an excellent group of comic book artists while I was in my internship some years back. That was a VALUABLE learning experience for me. I have personally been going back to the art lessons that I was given during that internship and doing them OVER AND OVER.
It's a great way to learn by using reference sheets, art guides, tutorials EVERY amount of knowledge that you cats can gleam from the masters who have come before us. I currently am going to draw a LOT tonight then I'm going to get on Diablo 3 and get some things completed on there. I play a LOT of MMO's for those of you cats that don't know. I look at the unique artwork in those games and I think to myself..."If I were on those art teams what would I DO DIFFERENTLY than the current art team?" So on and so forth.
Art is one of the few career paths that allow you to do what you REALLY want to do.
So for all you lovely folks out there who may benefit from my rants, PURSUE YOUR ART. Don't let your beautiful gifts go to waste. Each and every one of you, I hope the best of success in life and everything for y'all and y'all's families. Keep on arting everybody!!! YEAH!!! I'm super pumped and I hope you guys are too. I intend to upload a few more pages of stuff tonight and I'm going to link you guys my youtube project as well.
All I ask of y'all is that y'all keep ON DRAWING!!! PAINTING!!! WRITING!!! Whatever it is that you're into DO IT pursue it 100% balls in!!! We only got this one shot to get things right in life so let's DIVE IN THIS MOFO!!! Okay gang and with that, I got more ART to ART for you guys!!!
I appreciate the love and respect all y'all given me thus far!!! Keep up the great work everyone and with that...LET'S AAART!!!
