To lineart or not to lineart? That is the questionSo i've been seeing this opinion go around dA and that is that works without lineart are better than works with lineart?
Well i've been on both sides of this subject and i have found that both are equally hard or easy to do. It kind of depends on style here rather than skill.
If you want to draw with lineart then you require a set of skills, without lineart you need another.
I think the reason why people see works with lineart as being inferior to the ones without is because when someone starts to draw something for the first time, they always, with no exception, use lineart. And as artists grow and become better, some stop using lineart, so people assume that works without lineart are more evolved.
Well it's not quite like that. In my personal experience, works without lineart are much easier to do than ones with lineart.
The easy part
when you draw without lineart is you skip the lineart stage (which is tedious and ta
Creativity aint wiredCreativity, where does it come from, where it goes? Most of the time people ask me how can i be more creative, how and i be more unique on my topics? Thats a hard question, imean daily life its were creation truly is, not online. Been talking with other friends ona tablet, talking about how their creative process works, acouple of beers, laughs, argues, intriguing, different point of views like all humans in all topics, but we all agreed that first, you need to think in the concept you want to do then search for reference tools, not the other way around.
This days 99% of people use internet as their main inspiration tool, i think thats a double edge sword.
Lets say you want to do a bird, google bird and paint the first bird you see, same colors same pose same composition, okay? Now picture 10000 artists wanting to draw a bird, and use same photo? The only creayive person in this story was the one that took the picture, the rest are just copy artist, zero creativity. And i mean Ze
Should You Become a Professional Artist?Community Week
Do you enjoy art passionately and are considering doing it as your job, but have some worries such as;
Will I enjoy it as much as a job?
Will it be hard getting a job?
Will I become a starving artist?
If you're like me, you're asking yourself those questions and are letting them give you a hard time deciding whether or not to pursue art professionally. My health teacher told me, as we digressed from our topic of smoking, that to know whether or not you want to do a job, you have to hear what it's like from someone who's already doing it. That's why I decided to do an interview with professional artists on dA to give me, and hopefully many others, answers to these burning questions and an idea of what it's like to be a professional artist.
Okay, well let's get to it then
This is quite long so if you'd like to jump to a section, here are the questions I aske
Make 2015 awesome!A new year started. So some words of inspiration for those that want to pursue art this year...
Don't worry about your age. Do not get discouraged by those that are younger than you and better. Some people start art when they are 6 years old and are prodigy's at age 16, others make a rather late or slow start. It doesn't matter if you're 10 or 80 years old. You're never too old to learn something new, and you're never too old to do something you enjoy.
Everybody has potential. Even the greatest masters in art started out as beginners. It just takes a lot of time and persistence.
Don't be afraid to fail. Most masters have failed more times than any beginner even tried.
We only see the best from other people, and compare it with our own average. For every amazing painting a good artist puts online, he probably made 100 failed sketches. Sketches you'll never see and you'll never know o
7 Days of Color
Last month, I decided that I wanted to try and create an instagram feed that looked like a RAINBOW! SO my goal was to create a painting each day that represented a different color!
Here is the sequence of colors
We used the hashtag #7daysofcolor to keep track of everyone's work!
