Superheroes

Image

So I was drawing this and thinking to myself of the days when I watched the TV series of Superman (Smallville) you remember it right? Anyway it also got me thinking what do you think is a Superhero? Why do we idolize them? I am going to test a theory that in our world there are a lot of bad things that happen a lot of disasters. Naturally our brain wants to balance this fact by creating Superheroes this includes the X Men, Hulk and the Incredibles it puts into perspective the forces good and evil and how we are effected by them and also protected from them. Who was the Superhero of your Life/Childhood?

Amazing Mobile Photography

Amazing Mobile Photography

This picture was taken by a mobile, yes a mobile a Samsung Galaxy S2 as a matter of fact not a fancy IPhone or anything special. I have used a normal Digital Camera but I have found that my mobile combined with Photo editing software is more than enough. This is just to encourage you look on the settings that you have on your mobile shutter speed and resolution and see what amazing photo’s you can capture today.

Painting

This blog post is about painting just giving you the steps of how to create a watercolour like this:

Ok here are the steps:

  1. Make sure you have suitable paper (no ordinary paper will do because normal paper cannot withstand the amount of water) so watercolour paper would be best
  2. Make sure you have suitable brushes (the last thing you want to happen is for the brushes bristles to come off while you are painting)
  3. Do what we call a wash creating the background which basically means you need to use a little amount of paint and a lot of water (in this case I used cream)
  4. Do the outline of what you are doing very lightly in pencil use a 2H or 3H preferably so that you can hardly see the outline only faintly
  5. Next step is to use the bold colour first so in this case Purple and work your way in by smudging on the inside using only water
  6. Add the middle colour to what you are doing in this case yellow and this time use water to work the colour outwards
  7. Finally use the a cream colour to go over what you have done. Have fun : )

Shading- Art Tips

Shading is very important it makes a picture come to life in this post I am going to show how shading makes a difference and how it can liven up your Art. I have noticed that a lot of Artists or just somebody who is interested in Art generally doesn’t use shading or if they do it is minimal, this kills the piece of Art I see this a lot with my sister let me give you an example:

Without shading:

I know this is just a simple sketch but it demonstrates my point that shading is highly important for a few reasons

  1. It helps the your eyes figure out where the light is coming from
  2. It shows that you have spent a lot of time on the drawing
  3. Makes whatever you are drawing look 3D

Making Art modern

So we all know that Artists are amazing people but in this world how does all of this work most of us can’t just paint and have the selling skills as well to sell the painting. Well in this Blog post I am going to tell you from my perspective how to modernize Art.

I come from a family of Artists that all tried in various ways to become Artist not generally in the modern sense for this Blog post I am going to call it (Ancient Art) my Grandma and two Uncles had gone to Art college my family were not very well off the problem with this approach going from Art college to the street is:

  1. Selling Art doesn’t mean that the Art is actually any good in fact sometimes quite the opposite 
  2. Status Artists selling the Ancient way going on the Streets and trying to sell their Artwork that way generally fail
  3. You have to be in with the Art trends if you are not aware of this then (the people that you are aiming at may not be able to interpret the soul of what you are doing)

All of these factors mean that we can’t do things in the same way that we used to we have to revolutionize our approach to selling Art or we have to change the type of Art. Stay with me… Here are some things that might help you change the family chain of events and by the way yes my Arty family failed to do it the Ancient Art way.

  1. Utilize Social networks- I am only beginning to find this out sites like Twitter using business Twitter hours are essential (if you want to know more about this then leave a comment on the contact page I will get back to you)
  2. Google+ is also a good way of marketing mainly because you can link Youtube together 
  3. Of course use WordPress but you need to be serious about this in order that you don’t have to write and rewrite a bit more WordPress has the ability to link all these together (use the contact page on my website if you want too know more)
  4. This is a fourth option you can change the type of Art that you do to get to a different market try looking at Graphic design or Animation it only took me six weeks to learn about this 

I hope this helped : )
