And another Will Graham for you guys :) Thank you so much for all the notes and comments on the last one also I always read all the tags so thank you very much for all of them <3 They are so encouraging to paint more!
Anyway, this one is also old but hopefully soon I will have more new stuff to upload :)
I made a piece for Creature Features’ upcoming group show Mad Max: The Art of Road Rage. Opening night is next Saturday 8/12 from 6-10pm with $5 admission, and prints will be available on site until the show ends. Vernon Wells (Wez from Road Warrior) and Brendan McCarthy (co-writer/designer on Fury Road) will be there too! Swing by if you’re in Burbank! 🔥🔥🔥
10 inspiring and helpful YouTube channels for digital artists
People are asking us how the art we share can be so good.
The answer this time isn’t so simple. An artist has his own way on shaping his style, he takes his time to experiment and so it becomes quite difficult for others to try learning his art style and making it their own. It’s even wrong.
But we can tell you that many artists learn by getting inspired by others’ art. Watching an artist while he paints can be motivating - and of course it can teach you a few technical tricks.
So, here there are ten YouTube channels you should check out.
It’s a school founded by Feng Zhu, amazing concept artist with a lot of experience in video games, films and commercials. His videos are real episodes/lessons and they are very helpful. And, well, they even have a school in Singapore…
This channel doesn’t feature tutorials but shares full video processes by Chinese artists. In this period we are seeing many young artists inspired by an art style that’s typically Chinese - it features dramatic lighting and mood. Mind, though, that such technique can be found in other masters like Bouguereau and Rembrandt.
One of the most known groups of digital art on Facebook can be found on YouTube as well. The founders are Wojtek Fus and Darek Zabrocki. Each session (episode) features a different digital artist. This is great because you can compare the different painting processes. The main theme of this channel is concept art and fantasy/sci-fi illustrations.
This is the channel of Jorge Jacinto. He uploads speedpaintings, but they are very inspiring if you want to look at how a wonderful surreal landscape can be created in twenty minutes - in time-lapse of course.
His art is wonderful and his videos are super funny! Check out his channel if you want to see how a fantasy illustration can be created from a simple idea - I mean, he starts with two rough lines to close the video with a breathtaking illustration. Crazy.
This artist is a master in the concept field and he doesn’t only talk about his digital method but about his career as well, giving lots of hints on how to become a better artist and how to enter the art industry.
It’s time to bring it back folks! CAS is BACK for another session of shoutouts! This month’s theme: Young Artists!
This will be the first time I’m going full out and searching for artists on Tumblr as well!
Part of keeping the art community together is to consistently encourage young artists and help them in ways that we can whether it’s lessons, nice word, or just giving their art more recognition/a boost to media! All art is loved and appreciated and that’s what we’re going to celebrate this CAS session! This is an highly encouraged event for incoming students for art colleges/schools! This month’s CAS is open to everyone from ages 25 and younger! Or if you are above that age limit submit your work from when you were of a younger age with some improvements that you’ve made as you grew older! No matter how you look or identify all are welcome to join in!
So whether you have visual art (drawing, painting, fashion design, graphic design, animation, etc.) performing arts (acting, dance, cosplay, etc.) now is the time to step forward for that recognition you deserve! This event is to support you as an artist and bring the people together as a community along with making sure that our younger artists feel included!
So if you’re reading this and you want to join in on CAS send a message or leave a comment and I’ll have you featured in this month’s event! To see what CAS looks like check my Instagram page for February’s and April’s posts! LINK
