Sketchbook on Illustration Served

Sketchbook on Illustration Served - StumbleUpon Critic, “I’m an artist myself and” Argument from authority – always a logical fallacy, but even worse when it’s in a subjective field where there arguably can’t be any authorities. “I hate it when people who aren’t artists assume anything someone puts out there is ‘mind-blowing’.” – incredibly condescending, don’t you think?

Beautiful/Decay Artist & Design Gabriel Moreno does beautiful work with such basic materials: a pen and a brush. His illustrations begin in black and white, upon which Moreno builds, adding layers of color and images of other places and people tattooed into their skin. Flowers, birds, and faces organically expand from his subjects, as if a rush of creativity, or a dream, is escaping them. "Distant Clarity" by Sara Holbert on the Behance Network Although concepting for my senior show started this past summer, I had somewhat ofaa clear direction of what I wanted the senior show to comment on; and that was coming of age. Being married this past summer and concentrating on the ideas of what it means to be an adulthood, let alone the ramifications assumed as being a women, I started questioning and thinking how I wanted to portray these ideas in paintings.

The project is far from done, but I've finished the three defining paintings of the series. They each represent a stage of life; Childhood, adolescense, and transition to womenhood and adulthood. Although the pieces were inspired and driven from my personal experiences, I did not want to limit the experiences to my personal outlook alone.

How to Draw Celtic Knotwork The old method These instructions can be followed with pencil and paper or using any computer based drawing or drafting program. I have used Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator, and AutoDesk AutoCad for various projects, but my favorite is Corel Draw. In the tutorial below I show the method that I use in Corel Draw; however, I have deliberately left out program-specific instructions. I did this to make the instructions more broadly applicable to work with as many drawing and CAD programs as possible. This method, like most, begins with drawing the grid.
