Any Art Directors or talent-scouts out there?
It’s your lucky day. Due to the strangeness of life, industry layoffs, and your incredible luck some of my most talented and hardest working friends are currently looking for work!
They are, each of them, aces and excellent people. I’d love to make the recommendation or the introduction personally if you want to hit me up :)
Pass it on, tumblr! Share the love!
Damn good people, some of whom I had the pleasure of knowing at RISD. Nick’s right on the ball with this one! Spread the word if you can. :)
Hello! You're art is really beautiful... I especially admire the random people off the street you draw. I've been trying to draw humans in their natural habitats. Like... out in the open and stuff. Whenever I do though, people seem to notice and leave. Or stare really weird. Do you have any secrets on how to stalk/draw people without them noticing?
The trick, I’ve found, is not to look up and down a lot, checking your drawing, as that’s what attracts people’s attention – try to capture a ‘snapshot’ of the person or pose in your head and draw from that. It helps to draw really really fast, just getting down the bare essentials and not fretting over making a totally accurate detailed rendition of your subject. Obviously both of these take practise, but you can get the hang of them in a couple weeks or so. (Sunglasses are also a handy cheat but not always the right thing in context.) I’ve written more about the subject here.
Another good resource is Dave Pimentel’s blog … he’s been a story artist at Disney and Dreamworks and has taught gesture drawing at each. Lots to learn there!
reblogging for future reference!
Pushing poses by Shermcohen
I can tell, long time ago I saw this, and true this is one of the most useful things at the moment to pose a character in 3D. worth a reblog
Idk if this counts as a peeve more of an art-astronomy pet peeve
but when people draw the cresent moon and where the dark, shaddowed part of the moon is they put in stars
like studdenly that part of the moon is invisible instead of just being in the shadow
This is why, as an artist you need to learn to draw from life, from observation.
1 Observe things in person if you can
2 Find a bunch of photos in different situations
3 Learn a little about your subject
It will greatly improve your depiction of things and also help to inspire you.
