The second bit of advice a beginning artist usually gets is “ draw from life ”. And it is excellent advice! After all, if you can't draw what is right in front of you, you certainly won't be able to draw what you see in your imagination either. But the advice is a bit short, and will usually leave the artist behind unsure of what to do next.

Originally from Hong Kong, New York-based illustrator Victo Ngai creates action-packed artworks with an expressive approach. Her compositions are always spiraling and moving, engrossing the viewer into worlds where mysterious floods, ghostly hauntings and supernatural beasts are all fair game. Ngai uses a subtle, dusty color palette and loose line work, filling the backgrounds of her pieces with patterns reminiscent of Buddhist painting and Asian textiles.

( Video link ) This 75-minute time lapse video shows Kim Jung Gi drawing an uber-complex street scene out of his head with no lay-in. The stream-of-consciousness marker drawing covers two walls. Judging from his change of shirts, it took about three days. It includes flying elephants, motorcycles, and an assortment of farm animals, all drawn from interesting angles. I got hooked and watched the whole thing, listening to Radiolab and Sidebar podcasts, since the video has no soundtrack. It might be better to watch it on the YouTube page to see the video full size. ---- Review of Kim Jung Gi's sketchbooks for sale Muddy Colors post on Kim Jung Gi's books
Hello – Welcome to LaFleur Studios! I am available to partner with creative agencies and organizations as an independent freelance designer or also in a full-time creative position. I live in the Portland Metro area of the beautiful Pacific Northwest – specifically just north of Camas, Washington. My home office is perched above the babbling Little Washougal River which gives me inspiration, entertainment and even solace on those crunch creative days. Technology has blessed me with the ability to work with clients and creative teams nationwide (telecommute) while subconsciously juggling those pesky time zones .
Some samples of basic basic basic character exploration. Getting specific can make a huge difference with character design and boarding… not that these are super specific. Just a little bit. Next-five-shots exercise based off this photo . The idea is to take a photograph and make up what the next five shots would be, if the photo were a still frame from a film. Obviously this photo is from a film about fantastically tragic sadness.
The iPad has made me more conscious of my utter lack of talent at visual art than anything that’s happened since the weekend painting class I took when I was nine. I think that’s because tablet-made art, no matter how sophisticated, still seems so novel and so accessible beneath the shiny, shiny glass, like some kind of delightful accident that could happen to anyone: I have this app, too, so why can’t I draw a cherry blossom tree like that? Obviously the same principle applies here as to actual pencil and paper.
