Art History Interview with Cryptid-CreationsArt History Week
Art History Week with Cryptid-Creations
Hi Cryptid-Creations! How long have you been doing your art? How did you start?
Hi, my name is Piper Thibodeau. I've always been interested in art ever since I was a child, I was a compulsive doodler, but I started to really focus my energy on it about 5 years ago. The kind of art that I focus on career-wise is character designing and visual development art --basically the pre-production stage of animated films and games.
What do you know about the origins of your art genre?
I've yet to work in a studio myself, but from my understanding so far --preproduction art is vital to these industries both because it gives a scope into the project's budget and it allows the team to visualize their ideas before it hits the shelves or cinema. A lot of it needs to be fast and unpolished because ideas quite often get recycled. There's hundreds of scrapped character designs and painti
Art History Interview with MagicnaAnaviArt History Week
Art History Week with MagicnaAnavi
Hi MagicnaAnavi! How long have you been doing your art? How did you start?
Well, like most artists, I've always loved to draw, my school books always had a bunch of random doodles in them, but I never thought anything of it. The first serious artwork I did was a fan art piece of a character from MMO game Guild Wars. The world of Guild Wars was beautiful, and after looking over the concept art from Daniel Dociu, Kekai Kotaki, and others, I was left in awe of their skill. But of course I knew I would never try to do the same thing they did. I wanted to make something a bit different, represent those same characters in a bit different style. That is why I turned to find inspiration from some other artists, their styles closer to what I had in mind for my own. Almost 5 years have passed since that first GW fanart, and I still love to try and bring other characters to life with my work.
Octopus Accessories - art thieveshttp://www.octopus-store.ro/
this is their store. They are Octopus Acessories
This is their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OctopusAccessories
They had my drawings printed and were selling necklaces with them. They also lied to me that they did not steal them and took them from from some deviant who supposedly stole them first.
They sent me this link to this deviant :iconxyqueen: but the drawings that belong to me were submitted 12 hours ago. So obviously this couldn't be true since Nijikon was over 12 hours ago, and they had them for sale since 3 days ago.
This girl is so shameless, she lied to my face! She made me feel bad about calling her out and "making a scene" in front of her booth. OMG! And i believed her, i could have had her kicked out of the convention on the spot! She made me apologize for making a scene in front of her booth So she stole my art, and i was the one who apologized.
THAT. IS. WRONG.
Wow, if thievery was a game, she would be the final boss

Here are some of my favorite art blogs that inspire me and I hope that these resources might be helpful for you too.
A fantasy art collective that brings together an all-star line-up of illustrators and designers with daily insights into the thinking behind the art of contemporary fantastic art. Great insights from spectacular artists, such as beyond creative and inspiring DanLuVisiArt .

Honey, we're getting a MonsterfancyQUACKS
A really hungry one...
Naughty monsters are running rampant in the city again - you know the kind! They're short, noisy and make constant mischief on our doorsteps; begging for candy despite buying perfectly good pumpkins the same day. What's their dastardly plan for all that food? They're up to no good and must be stopped.
We should feed the trick-or-treaters - to hungry, real monsters! There's a critter-shaped hole to this plan: we don't actually have any real monsters. But all we need are your designs to put into my Monster Making Machine to release them into the suburbs! Trick-or-treaters - gobbled up for good!
How does this work? I'm glad you asked. The "Monster Maker 2000" is my old, modified microwave and this invention will create flesh-and-blood monsters from designs. A little energy combined with your designs will help bring our glorious abomination to life.

Do you/a friend Need Exposure for Adoptables? I've recently found people who have made these really nice adoptables, at least artistically I think they're really well done. And then it pains me to see when very few people bid on them, and this amazing creation can only sell for like, $5 or something.
Now I've never tried adoptables, and I'm not sure I completely understand how they work, but what I do know is that it seems artists who do them are really at the mercy of how much exposure they get. In that way, it's much like everything else; if you don't have the numbers, really great work goes unnoticed and sells for a handful of jelly beans.
So I'm going to do a journal that features Adoptables.
Do you have, or know someone who is selling *nice quality* adoptables but really needs exposure on them? Leave a thumbnail or link in this journal, and maybe I'll choose them for my feature. I can't showcase them all, but I'd certainly like to try and get a few out there.
The world gets harder for artists all the time
1,500,000 KiribanI don't ever do Kiribans but I'm doing an exception this time.
First person to take a screen cap of my profile at 1,500,000 pageviews and sent it to me in a NOTE will get a 50x50 pixel icon + 1000
Screen cap must be uploaded to STA.SH (or to your gallery, if you prefer)
Of course screen cap must be legit. If I suspect you cheating, don't expect to get anything :/
Monthly Theme FANTASY vote and win points:iconthefavouriteshowcase:
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge at TheFavouriteShowcase: instead of using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th wins 25 .
These prizes can be updated for the next themes with the help of our friends:
