|Showing love for some badass artists here|
I have ARDS, otherwise known as Artistic-Reverse-Drunkard-Syndrome. The longer I look at something to draw and work on it, the worse it gets. The whole "my sketch came out fantastic... why is the end product so shitty?" case applies here.|
Tracing/use of art: Hey it's simple. Ask me about using my art for reference or tracing over for something, and if I give you the thumbs up, it's cool. If not, respect my wishes. No need to start an internet war over this stuff (damn it someone traced my art/oh boohoo people are sending death threats to me).
The idea that anyone who hires an artist without compensation is utterly foolish based on the notion that it is something everyone can do.
The talent of hard work is nurtured over time, defined by passion and forged by failure into success. One does not simply buy it like cheap materials, nor does one assume money will bridge the gap. Talent isn't bought from artists- it's rented. Respect them.
A Tribute to Monty Oum?Monty Oum http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Oum , the creator of the Dead Fantasy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHA3opXjcd0 and Red vs. Blue Mash Up Videos among others died at the weekend at the age of only 33.
:iconbulletproofturtleman: sent me the following note:
"Hey GBK, er-hem Mr. Hoffmann, I would like to request a special tribute. In light of the passing of the recent animator Monty Oum, who has created amazing mash-ups like Dead Fantasy, Red vs Blue, and Haloid, perhaps Game-Art-HQ could put together a special tribute in memory of all the works he's done?
It seems pretty forward of me to ask, and I understand if you do not have the time considering the many other tributes you are already putting together, but I ask that you consider it, as it would be a great way for the creative and gaming community to celebrate the remembrance of one of the great creative minds and his legacy.
I thank you for taking the time to read this, and please do notify me if you do conside
