Any of me fellow artists have one of these? They any good?
Sarah McIntyre’s Pictures Mean Business site is a lot of thought to chew on, and provides a roundup of issues facing illustrators these days. A must see for any artist, writer, publisher, media provider, teacher or lover of books and illustration.
Yay illustrators! Give ‘em da credits, folks! Don’t forget ‘em!
EVERYONE LET’S BUY THIS
The demo alone made me have so many feels!!! I was charmed, I was disturbed, I was dismayed…and this was only a demo. Add in a VERY unique combat system, quirky characters, and you’ll find it puts 99% of mass-produced AAA games to shame!
I will tell you nothing else about it or else you will be spoiled. Definitely read the “readme.htm” file included with the demo!!
Even two years later, so many people want to see this show come back. There’s no reason why it shouldn’t.
YOUNG JUSTICE is one of the very best modern superhero cartoon shows of all time (Go Netflix it now if you haven’t. GO GO GO). Great animation, wonderful characters (I just love their AquaLad!!), suspenseful writing…A perfect fit in the DC animated canon. BRING IT BACK NAO!!!!
Thanks to some feedback I got, I decided to open up a Patreon account and turn my originally-planned two part “Draw Better Horses” tutorial into a whole series (because, let’s face it, there’s a lot of really wonky horse art out there).
How it works:
Patreon is a website that lets patrons— that’s you guys— support content creators they like with recurring pledges. You pay as much as you want (or as little as $1) per content release. It’s a little like NPR, but without all the pledge drives— you pay what you think the content is worth. And while it’s designed to be on a recurring payment basis, there are ways to make one-time contributions as well.
In the case of this Patreon, I plan to release a new tutorial once a month, for twelve months. There are tiered releases— if I reach $50 in pledges, the next tutorial will be like the first one— multiple pages covering several key points of a topic. If $75 is pledged, I add animated panels to better illustrate a particular topic. And so on.
There are rewards for patrons, too!
Best of all, every penny raised by this Patreon goes to help real-life horses. 100% of proceeds go towards people and organizations who rescue, rehab, retrain, and rehome thoroughbred racehorses after their racing days are done.
The twelve tutorials I have planned are:
-Anatomy of the Legs and How They Move
-Gaits of the Horse
-The Horse in Motion (other things horses do besides walk,trot,canter)
-The Horse and Rider
-Horse and Rider part 2
-Horses and Armor
-Light Horse Breeds
-Heavy Horse Breeds
-Conformation– not all horses are perfect
-Mules, Asses, Zebras and other Exotic Equids
Pledge your support and draw better horses!
C’mon folks, let’s help her out! Can’t think of a single artist who doesn’t need help drawing horses (myself SO included!)
