Tools of the Trade: Helpful HardwarePen TabletsPen tablets are probably one of the most sought after pieces of hardware among the digital artist crowd. And while you would be highly mistaken if you think that a pen tablet will instantly make you an amazing artist, it is a very handy tool. I personally use one, and while it took me a good year and a half to actually use it after I bought it, once I began using it I loved it.Huion 8 ExpressKey 10 x 6 Inches Graphics Drawing TabletPrice: $55.97 on AmazonPen Pressure: 2048Size: 10'' x 6''ReviewI am extremely intrigued by this tablet. 2048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity, 8 expresskeys and 16 User-defined Keys that are all customizable, medium sized, a more than affordable price, and a little pen holder that looks mighty familiar.

Lessons Learned: Wrap UpAdviceFor the first week we focused on Advice and how valuable it is (or isn't)! We talked about advice we don't agree with, advice we have ignored, and advice we would personally give. Some pieces of advice given include:If someone critiques your work, don't get insulted - constructive critique can really help a new artist! but also don't be afraid to disagree - people comment on different things, and some are a matter of opinion.GejdaMy first piece of advice would be to always think about what you are going to do before you start it : I have a tendency to rush when I find a stock image that inspires me or when I get an idea and most of the time it ends up in a work I cannot finish. No need to rush, it will make you waste time !perolineMippieArt's response to a piece of advice that is overrated:Mmm, hard to say. I think it would probably be people who say that just do what you love doing and everyt
Tools of the Trade: Choosing StockWhat to Look ForWhen it comes to stock images there is no better time to be picky. With both free and purchased stock, be discerning. Once you start being picky about what stock you use, and even better when you start using premium stock, you will notice your quality of work will increase a significant amount. Better ingredients means better results. ClarityYou want a crisp clear image with a very very low amount of noise, no motion blur caused by a shaky camera, and completely no artificial effects and edits. Noise is the most common issue, but also the easiest to deal with (to an extent) as long as the image is a good size. Which brings us to our next quality to look for.SizeThe bigger the better. The bigger it is the easier it is to add details, fix defects, and overall just a million times easier to work with. In fact, unless you are a 100% web only hobbyist low resolution images are basically unusable. There is nothing
5 Tips From Me to YouTo be taken for what it is - ramblings of a weirdo. A weirdo with a heart of gold, and good intentions. Look for Inspiration Outside of Your MediumOne of the biggest mistakes I see is people only gathering inspiration from art made out of their own medium. Admiring your fellow -insert artist type here- is fine of course, but make sure to mix in a slew of other sources as well. This will help keep your art unique and fresh and help you steer away from trends. My personal inspiration tends to come from digital and oil painters, fashion photographers, movies and my favorite: people watching. Don't Blame Your Equipment, or Lack there OfThis has to be one of my biggest pet peeves. The artist that blames their equipment or the fact they don't have what they "need". "If I just had -this- then I would be sooo much better! ...But I don't so oh well". I can not stand this line of thought. It's pure poison. Rotting the m

Birthday Tribute For NickWhether you knew him well, or were just an acquaintance, it did not matter, at least to him it didn't, as he treated everyone with the same love and respect. There is no doubt, that he touched the lives of many, a fact he was always surprised about. It humbled him, and he was truly grateful for the friends he has met here.It is that rarest of people, who could reach over mountains and oceans and touch all of our hearts. From every corner of the globe, to every walk of life, no matter your ethnic background, your political or religious views, no matter the color of your skin, or even if you spoke English, it did not matter to him, as he considered you all friends, and many, a part of his family.He was your confidant, your mentor, your biggest supporter, your shoulder to cry on, your voice of reason and logic, and your cherished friend. He was all of those, to all of you, a person you could always count on, to always be there. He would listen to all of you, with
