Pepper TimelapsesHey everyone,
So I finally started doing some timelapses of the way I work!
Heres a 15 min vid on part of the process for Pepper - mainly polypainting with a little bit of sculpting etc.
Heres a longer 30min vid of the same content,... just slowed down a little bit heh.
The final result at the end of the session was the wip I posted up yesterday
I hope this stuff is useful in some way!
Free Art Tutorial from my friend Sam CarrEnjoy! Very informative
Im a 3d Character Artist, why do i need 2D skills?I was asked this a couple of times recently from students, thought i would share my thoughts here with you guys n girls.
My answer consists of 2 things:
1. Because 2d helps to rapidly build a visual library of self-knowledge in your brain, which ultimately through focus and repetition translates into 'artistic instinct'.
2. Because 2d is much faster to iterate with, enabling more rapid development of 'artistic instinct'.
Have you ever noticed when watching a master artist at work, that the subject seems to come alive so quickly, or that meaningful lines, shapes or silhouettes jump out right away, and then think:
'They seem to know exactly what shapes to put where, how to nail the composition so quickly, how to draw everything perfectly, without even thinking about it!!'
This is artistic instinct.
What you are watching is an artist call upon their whole lives worth of visual library development and self-knowledge, expressed using their 'artistic instinct' in the form of the subject.

Some Simple AdviceBizzarely, as if the universe just went 'okay people - ask now!' Just in one day today ive has so many pm's from various boards and whatnot from young / new artists asking me about what the secret is, how do I get better, what can i do, or i wish i could make stuff like you.
My advice is actually pretty simple. I gaurantee if you do this repeatedly everything else will take care of itself.
Step 1: Make some time for making art.
Step 2: Get everything prepared before hand, drinks, snacks, music - whatever you need to see you through the next couple of hours for your personal art jam.
Step 3: Unplug your internet.
Step 4: Make art.
I think too many people, especially young artists trying to find their way are looking too hard for something that doesnt even exist. Theres no secret formula, no awesome serum to drink. Just sit down and make art, and keep doing that over and over and over.
Free yourself of burden and distraction for that hour or couple of hours and just do it. Thats all it i

And I'm back for the feature... oh my, I wasn't here for almost 2 weeks Sorry cuz of that, but I have to make ton of stuff for college, so I probably won't be here that much in next upcoming weeks. So I hope you can also wait for my new stuff which I draw (a little slowly...I paused process cuz of school ).
But I also have great news for you. One of my newest drawings which I still draw, I record. So soon you'll be able to see on our YouTube account whole process how I draw my paintings. From sketch till finished piece. But I guess I'll have to post it in few parts (cuz I already draw it more than 14 hours and I just started ).
And here is the feature. I featured some amazing character and environment pieces by great artists all around dA. If you like these works, then fav them... and you can also fav this article and help these artists, so they can get more attention. Thank you and I hope you enjoy this feature
How to Become a Better Artist in 1 minuteAlright. I've wanted to do this for a while but never really had the balls. (huur. balls. XP just thought Id get it out before everybody else and their mother's uncle's monkey did).
Chances are you're here for one of a few reasons:
1) You were attracted by the title
2) You're here to prove me wrong
3) A combination of the above
4) You're an idiot
Well, in all honestly, I can assure you, you WILL be a better artist after you read this article.
Now, before I get started, I want to explain the purpose of this article. Its not a tutorial, its not me telling you what to do, its not 'OMG! I CAN HAZZZ FREE SKILLLZZZZZ?!?!?!!11one!!!' no no and NO! I suppose you could call it some suggestions. When ever I ask people 'how do you get so good?!' or 'do you have any tips??' All I ever really get is ' practice' ' practice' 'FFFFFFF PRACTICE NOOB!' But fact is, that isn't all there is to it. So what I'm hoping to do is go
