|A bride must have the prettiest bunch of flowers in her day.|
Always connected to the music, always listening and watching everything around me. People don't seem to notice me until they realize I'm drawing them. I take photos, I make drawings, I knit, I let my imagination fly away.
Negativefeeling is the feeling I always feel. Everywhere, anywhere.
Siempre conectado a la música, siempre escuchando y mirando lo que hay en derredor. La gente no se percata que estoy ahí hasta que se dan cuenta de que les estoy dibujando. Hago fotos, hago dibujos, tejo y dejo que mi imaginación vuele.
Negativefeeling es el sentimiento que me invade siempre. En todos lados, en cualquier lado.

My Life in Monsters
Meet the Animator behind Star Wars and Jurassic Park
You may not know his name, but you’ve seen his art
Phil Tippett’s career as a visual-effects supervisor began when he breathed life into “Star Wars” creations large and small, from AT-AT Walkers to Luke’s tauntaun to the holographic fighting chess pieces.
Involved in both the design and animation of fantastical creations, Tippett lent his unique skill set to Industrial Light & Magic’s animation department for many years before winn
Are you a cheat or the real deal?Let’s talk a bit about using references and other media for your (digital) paintings. Everyone has a right to their own opinion, however there are some assumptions that people make that we are better off clearing up.
Often during my Twitch streams people ask me:
‘I want to paint characters from imagination, how do I do it without copying from a reference?’
You have to train yourself with reference before you get the information memorized in your brain. That's why we do anatomy studies with live models, 3D models, photos of naked people etc. When doing these studies you must try and understand the thing you are studying and not just blindly copy what you see. If you understand how the body moves, what muscles are used, proportions, curves etc, you will have a much easier time sketching out the human figure without reference. But even then, depending on the purpose of your work, you do well with checking your sketch for mistakes
Do not work for freeI received an email soliciting artwork for the second volume of"The Fantasy Illustration Library: Gods and Goddesses”.
The jist of it was: Pick your god or goddess! Make art for us! After we get all the art, we’ll try to do a Kickstarter to produce the book and if we make enough money, we might pay the artists! Don’t pay attention to the un-affordable nature of the book’s price point ($100) because we’ll totally pay you royalties!!
This brand of “proposal” is predatory, dishonest, and frankly incompetent. (And art budget for an art book?? Who’d ever even think of that!) People who organize business models like this are assholes, no words minced. Do not take the bait. Do not get involved. Do not lessen yourself, your work, your skill and time, by participating in this kind of pig swill.
No amount of experience or exposure is worth it. You know what else gets you experience and exposure? Payin
