Muddy Colors
My post today is the second half of my entry from two weeks ago. If you didn't read that post, or would like to refer back to it, here is the link - Process to the People: Part 1. My goal in the first half was the show how the predominant artistic tradition over the last several centuries and through the Golden Age of Illustration followed a specific process. Also, I hoped to show how changing your process can potentially improve your final results. For this half of the post, I am going to show my steps for a recent painting, applying some of the traditional steps but also using some modern tech to possibly add efficiency. I want to reiterate that this is just one approach.

Realism vs construction(a guide to choosing the right art education) This will be an attempt to outline and describe the basic renaissance system of construction, as it was taught by the russian master Boris B. Kazakov.I thought this thread could be a good way of students of different schools to share their ideas and perhaps outline aspects of their system. I spent one year in a school that only had this basic renaissance system. My instructors were all students of Boris. - (it's in English) and please judge student works lightly - they were done by ½ to 1 year students.

BACK TO THE FUTURE I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this.

Videos Straight-away I was reminded of Jake Fried, but only in materials/process. It’s clear that Emanuele is also intuitively fleshing out the movement frame-by-frame as he goes but his work is unique in that there’s no figurative elements to recognize; only abstract geometry and form that, when quilted together, comes across as both familiar and foreign. I’m reminded of the notebooks I used to fill with random scribbles while bored out of my mind in high school: I’d start with a stray line or a random shape and then try to make sense of it with the remaining paper, as if the choatic mess left by my pen was what I had intended to create from the beginning.

Top 5 Online Art Courses That Are Worth Paying For Self teaching is a completely viable route for learning to draw and paint. There are so many great courses you can watch from your home computer that it’d be foolish to ignore this potential.

I’ve been trying some new things for a small project. Starting tomorrow, the Arludik Gallery is hosting a new show titled Merveilleux! for which I did a small ink piece. The show explores classic tales and legends, features a lot of awesome people and will ultimately be published in book form by CFSL Ink. And so I did a minotaur.

Muddy Colors: Figure Drawing Resources Redux -By Arnie Fenner Back in 2014—and again in 2016—I did a post about a free resource for nude models on YouTube. As I said before, since there are always new visitors to MC and blogger doesn't make searching the archives the easiest, I thought it would be helpful to remind everyone again of these invaluable videos.

THE ART OF JOHN ALVIN GETTING GREAT PRESS! - John Alvin Art As some of you who follow The Art of John Alvin, not the book, but the actual art, which is represented by ArtInsights Animation and Film Art Gallery, know quite well, Andrea Alvin has been working for several years writing, compiling, and getting permissions for a (hopefully first) book on John Alvin’s career and art. It is being released by Titan Books. We have been thrilled to see not only the attention that Titan has given it in terms of promotion, but also the interest, well deserved, by the press worldwide. We are told this is only the first round, and more articles will appear as the actual release date happens, but we are going to keep a list of all the articles and reviews, good or (goddess forbid!) bad, right here. My friend Travis of Punch Drunk Critics has a connection with Amazon and gets a teeny bit back from you buying from him and we like to support him…so if you’re buying from Amazon, click here!
