11:00 AM, Thursday, March 26th, 2015 - Posted by John Wilson

I am an unabashed fan of studio tours. I have always beem a firm believer that you can tell a ton of things about an artists workspace. And that is incredibly true of artist Baylee Jae and her enviable studio space that she shows off in great detail in this video.

Living to Your Fullest Potential

Living a life of unrealized potential or just skating your way through life is possible but it is a complete waste of your talent and energy. If you ever want to be the best artist and the best You that you possibly can, you have to stretch beyond what you see as your limits and to make new and higher goals for yourself. This video follows an artist reexamining his ideas and goals.

Character Design with Mixed Genres

11:00 AM, Tuesday, March 24th, 2015 - Posted by John Wilson

Character design should be fluid, not static. You want to try as many ideas as you can think of. One interesting technique is to choose a variety of genres and mix them together. Have fun with it and do something fun and original. This video sees the creation of a Medieval Steampunk Female Rogue.

Filling your Creative Bank Account

11:00 AM, Monday, March 23rd, 2015 - Posted by John Wilson

When you find your self with no ideas to draw from and no inspiration to create, it can be said that your creative bank account is empty. Finding images that you are interested in on Pinterst, DeviantART, your saved computer files or through books, allows you to fill that account and helps fuel your creativity. This video explains the concept further.

Should You Work for Free?

11:00 AM, Sunday, March 22nd, 2015 - Posted by John Wilson

There is a problem that artists find themselves facing that rarely comes to play in other industries. People think that the artist should be happy with exposure instead of payment. But the fact is that especially in this electronic age, no one needs exposure from an outside source. An artist can get all the exposure that they could ever want on their own. The long and short of it: If you consider yourself to be a professional, then do not work for free...for anyone.

Watching a Guy Drawing Hawkeye

11:00 AM, Saturday, March 21st, 2015 - Posted by John Wilson

There is a big debate about fan art. Is it yours or are you stealing? Should you be allowed to make money selling your drawings of characters that do not belong to you? Too weighty a subject here but we are going to watch this artist who does have his own comics, draw Hawkeye.

Some people say that it is talent. Some say it is where you work and what you work with. What you believe is up to you but a little knowledge doesn't hurt. Check out this video on an artist's workspace and tools.

Roc Upchurch Drawing Batwoman

11:00 AM, Thursday, March 19th, 2015 - Posted by John Wilson

One thing that you can really miss while being stuck in your studio all alone everyday is the act of watching other people draw. In school, you could see your classmates and even the teacher draw. If you are part of an art collective or larger art studio, you could watch your colleagues work. I have long thought that watching someone else work helps you improve because you can see the mistakes and solutions that they make and avoid or implement them as the case may be. Here we get to watch Roc Upchurch drawing Batwoman at last years SDCC.

Celebrating Your Accomplishments and a Bit of Sketchbook Looking

11:00 AM, Wednesday, March 18th, 2015 - Posted by John Wilson

From CrypticInk's own description: Today I also talk about celebrating your accomplishments. Oftentimes, we get so wrapped up in improving and comparing ourselves to our own expectations and others' works, that we forget to look at how far we've come. Don't forget to celebrate what you've accomplished - and if you don't think you've accomplished anything, REALLY LOOK - because if you are practicing and seeking out things and people to tech you, you will end up better than that day, week, or month before.

Design 100 Somethings

11:00 AM, Tuesday, March 17th, 2015 - Posted by John Wilson

You may have the greatest concept ever but what will it look like and what will make it the best possible representation of that concept? A common design project used by art professionals is the "Design 100 Somethings" project. You choice a narrow, specific concept and design 100 things based on that concept. Watch this video and pay attention to the drawings as the artist varies that concept.
