Daily Doodle Challenge : Instagram

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 20, 2014, 3:50 PM


Ahoy fellas!

It's been a while since my last entry, so here are some news!

I recently (about 3 months ago... Yeah "recently" huh) opened an Instagram account where I promised myself to upload one picture every single day.

As a freelance illustrator, procrastination can be your worst enemy, and this motivates me to be more involved into both my job & my passion :) (Smile)

The account is called Daily Doodle Challenge:
I usually show traditional pîeces, but every 4 days, a new digital work in progress is released. I also show pictures I have never updated on my DA account, and sometimes I show WIPs of finished pieces already updated here.
Some doodles are kind of old, but the idea is to continue doodling and create new things everyday.

Here are some works from the past days:

Also, thanks to the mighty Pokemon Master Itsbirdy , his insane Pokemon creations are pure gold:

Bulbasaur wearing a Venasaur Onsie by ItsBirdyArt Charmander wearing a Charizard kigurumi by ItsBirdyArt Squirtle wearing a Blastoise Hoodie by ItsBirdyArt


And to finish, I would like to talk about Suzanne Helmigh. She is the perfect example of what artists should be like. She is determined, open-minded, she shares her feelings, she highly helps freelance artists, illustrators and many other artists to deal with everyday's life. She is a great source of inspiration to me and you should totally read some of her journals:

 
The stuff that artists go through.There are so many pro's and con as to being an artist, professional or as a hobby. 
It feels nice to be able to express yourself through something you make and when that something turns out to be looking good we get this sense of accomplishment. 
Most of the time though there are bad feelings mixed with the good ones.
:bulletblue: Not being understood. Those moments where your friends or family does not understand that you have to desire to be alone and work on your art. Those copious amounts of hours you spend working and they wonder why you wouldn't rather be outside relaxing in the sun or hang out with your friends.
The only people who will ever fully understand this are other artists or simply very understandable people. It's important they they will eventually understand so there wont be any hurt feelings. Try to explain ti as calmly and rational as you can, perhaps with using examples in terms they  would understand.

:
Fast lane to becoming a better artist.I often get this very question: How did you get this good this fast?

Now as I consider myself not being as good as people tell me, even struggling quite often with being an artist in general. 
I do know how to get better and how to reach it fast. I'm still growing as I go and it's the main thing that keeps me going.
You need to get into the right mindset and the rest will follow. With the rest I mean:
1. Willpower.
2. Endurance.
3. Positive energy.
4. The NEED to draw.
:bulletblue: Seeing growth in your work gives you the courage to work harder. You know that feeling when you're just about done with an image
and feel like this image is better than your last one, that great feeling. Use it!
:bulletblue: Do studies! Lots of them!! Make film shot studies, live object studies, master-painting studies. They will teach you a lot about composition, lighting, colors, shapes storytelling etc. 
You will hardly notice that you are learning thing

The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right ;) .. ofcourse. :P *wink *wink )
  
  Where to get started before you can apply for workThere is no such thing as suddenly knowing when you are ready to turn your
passion into your profession. But there is a way of measuring your chances on being
able to get work and eventually sustain a living from it.
Accepting commissions or freelance for low payment won't help you. You can think any penny counts, but it will lower the worth of your work and damage the market.
:bulletblue: How to measure that you are ready?
You probably have high goals, but they are usually not your first step. You must search out the clients who can be that first step. Often found in the card game industry, book cover illustrations and smaller game company's. 
Look at the artwork shown by a company such as the card game company: Fantasy Flight games. Compare your skills with the average of their artworks. If it matches yours, you will have a chance. However, keep in mind that those artworks had been done in a limited timeframe, usually within 12 hour



Oh and some pretty badass illustrations from her gallery:


 The cursed Fenneks by Suzanne-Helmigh April Stilllife by Suzanne-Helmigh

Lifestudy May by Suzanne-Helmigh Ninae in town by Suzanne-Helmigh


To all of you, I give you my infinite thanks for the inspiration :) (Smile)

And if anyone wants to give some IG account, let's share them all in the comment section so I can go see what you got! Instagram Social Smiley


Cheers! ;) (Wink)
