Sketches, thoughts and other... things.

A lot of people have messaged me about the 30 Day Challenge list. I hadn’t realized the link on my old post was down, so I’m reposting it now, as well as letting you all know for the next 8 weeks I’ll be posting every Monday with animated illustrations. Hopefully I can brighten up your otherwise dry work week Monday!

UPDATE: Sorry I fixed the list. There was bunch of dummy text in there. It’s all good now

Wow, great list! I might give this to my class, and should give it a shot my self.

wakefree asked: Did you get permission from Capcom to feature Chun-Li in your artbook? And if not, are you pulling in any profit from the artbook? If yes, well... then I have two words for you: "Copyright infringement."

robscorner:

It’s not that cut and dry. 

There are millions of doujins, artbooks, and fanart prints out there featuring other’s characters that are sold for profit. Artists make money off of commissioned licensed characters. A lot of it falls under fair use (transformative work), since the purpose of my sketchbook is an exploration of my art and style for scholarly review, not to financially or legally threaten or harm Capcom (which it isn’t; note that I also do work directly for Capcom sometimes) or trace existing licensed art. Granted, most of the content in my book is full of original stuff. But I state in the book that all characters and likenesses belong to their rightful owners.

You should read this article which explains more.

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

Amazing!

Mouth drawing tutorial, tumblr!

I take questions if you have ‘em.

Going to show this to my class. They’ve been asking about drawing mouths and the muscular description on the second page will really “put a smile” on there faces.

Literately.


…See they are drawing faces with mouths… and this will show…

Oh you get it. Good.
Thanks Dianekraus!

…and here’s one done by yours truly to round off the week. I don’t normally paint this dark but there’s no better time to flex your pallet. As you can see by the process drawing below I started with a much rounder head and thinned it out about half way. The whole thing probably took 4-5 hours including the writing the post and compiling the process image Thanks to everyone that has drawn me and allowed me to draw them this last 30 years!

These where created by James Stewert. An amazing cartoonist and a very cool dude.
