sketch artist, currently interested in game development. He is currently a Project Manager of Athena Consulting.
Recently I stumbled upon a blog, http://www.artist-problems.tumblr.com that listed problems that most artist have, so I decided to take some random post and decided to discuss and reseacrh them so up first is……
Ok, I love photography and graphics more than painting and sketching so usually when I need help, I go to http://www.strobist.blogspot.com and I was refered to this blog from another blog, the skinny artist http://www.skinnyartist.com And I also loved to watch the Mo-am network, a video blog for fashion in London, back when they had 2 female host and I loved Overlord X work, so I hit himup, he responded which was great and he showed me his website http://bro.mo-am.com
And those are the few websites I go to for quick help, strobist is good with lighting, Overlord X is good with equipment and the skinny artist is good with being an artist.
So here are some quick tips for finding the right resources.
FIND YOUR ART IDOL
I have a couple, I prefer people who are strange but not displeasing, if that makes any sense.
She has many publications, you can check out her webpage http://www.kortophotography.com and we also went to the same highschool.
He’s a Canadian Photographer, fairly young and I love everything about him.
He’s done twilight…..I’m in awe…..
Anyways I found out about him through the Strobist, http://www.strobist.blogspot.com/2007/10/young-blood-chat-with-photographer-joey.html
And I also viewed the documentary he’s in, “Beyond” in Varanasi India with Cale Glendening who I am facebook friends with.
Theres one more I have but I cant find his name but I also found out about him through the strobist….yea do you see the pattern yet
Get to know the artist, without being a stalker and see who they learned from
Read the views and comments for videos
Usually if someone is good, you will see a ton of views and a ton of comments such as, “Thanks” or “Great video”
Also if it sounds like crap it is crap….
Get a book
If you need to learn basics find old versions of books that they study in college, sometimes you can find a free pdf of the book
If you want to get tricks, then read the reviews before you buy. Amazon is great for this.
So start off there, if you have tips feel free to share.
Until next time
