Art & Design's Daily Chit Chat




Hello everyone and welcome to A&D's first ever Spring 2013 DCC!

Feel free to discuss anything and everything art related in here. Get to know your fellow artists, learn their methods, chat about the latest and greatest art-thing you learned about! Here's your opportunity to talk with the gallery and shop owners here!

However, before you get typing. We've got a few rules:
  • Be mindful of the topic at hand. Always remember to respond accordingly to the prior conversation. Use your best judgement when changing current topics.
  • Critiquing is allowed, just keep in mind that this DCC is for the general discussion of art. Any heavy, full-blown reviews must be posted in the artist's gallery. Feel free to ask the artists how/why they drew something, but keep detailed and in-depth judgements on the art where it belongs.
  • Small traditional and digital requests can be made in this thread. Just remember that an artist may not always be available to complete your request. You're expected to respect that. Make sure your request doesn't derail any conversation; so keep the momentum going! I will reiterate : Do not request a signature here.
  • Don't spam, troll, or flame. Be nice; and the DCC will be nice to you.

Above all, have fun and enjoy! :D

yay for the DCC finally being up. Hope all dem members enjoy it. :p

Since there's no topic being talked about, I'll start - What would you guys like to see in A&D? Is there anything about it that you aren't happy about? What do you think could make it better?

No guys stop making things like the icontest and this when I can barely make any graphics, and when I can nothing good. :(

Joking aside, you and Alexial have both been doing a wonderful job bringing some life back to A&D. I'm not around here as much as I would like but I can definitely see the effort you both have put into it and I think activity has gone up since. Maybe if the icontest is successful you can eventually reboot the signature contest as well. Maybe even an occasional joint 'theme' contest, kind of like what one of the get-togethers had once.

Dr. Eggman: Get a load of this!

http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=301419

Or if that topic gets moved or deleted, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIMLbSzTvV0

It reminds me of a Tumblr I wanted to do earlier in the year (which would now hypothetically make three) like December or January, whenever I joined here. Ideally, I'd set up various Pokemon drawing challenges like draw from memory, under 30 seconds, etc, and in retrospect... I probably should have. :\

On the other hand, my plate is 100% full, I can't take on anything else until I finish off some of the other things I'm working on. Still, the concept is cool. I might do this myself or set up a site for it later. :P I dunno, just battin' stuff around like a cat bats anything that moves.

We'd definitely think about it, Tara. And thanks for the compliment, haha. ALSO THERES LIKE TWO DAYS LEFT YOU CAN STILL DO IT TARA ;________;

Haven't seen the entirety of the video myself but it's lookin' pretty sweet. <3; I honestly wouldn't be able to draw a single one of them without reference. XD; And dbp I'd honestly love to see your stuff, man. Bet it'd be even better than what we saw in the video, haha.

Woo A&D has a DCC now! I can chat with fellow artists!

I know someone from another forum whose drawing all 649 (and probably the ten Gen VI mons now.) Pokemon in Paint from memory.

If you want to spend hours going through this thread , you're in for a great laugh.

http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f237/topic-i-will-draw-all-649-pokemon-ms-paint-52748/


I really have no suggestions for this DCC though. :(

ahahaha, holy crap, that's just hilarious. XD; We should definitely have some sort of a project like that going over here too. Had no idea just a bunch of goofy pokemon art along with a single-lined comment can make me laugh like it just did omg XD; Totally gonna browse through its entirety when I'm free. 8) If you know similar hilarious stuff feel free to post here - always up for a good laugh, haha. <3

oh and it's okay. :) We'll figure things out somehow, lol.

Yup, he hasn't posted one in months though. :( But that sounds like an excellent idea. People can volunteer to do 5-10 at a time and post them here. i'd love to do that.

It's from Owl City's new video for their song "Metropolis".


I'm in love with this song right now cause of the video. The artwork is amazing in it and it also has a really good message about standing up to bullying. Adam, mastermind behind Owl City,posted gifs from the video to his blog and I had to use that one as my signature cause it's so cool!
http://www.ayoungblog.com/post/48783791777

So I've been putting that video on repeat just for the art and it's just a wonderful video too imo.

And yeah I'd considered comics art cause someone spent time working on them and plan and draw out all the visuals and such. Some comics have such incredible art too as well.

omnomnomnom yours words feed meeee :DDDD

Yes! They do! I love comics <3 Every Wednesdayyyy~~

I've heard of Owl City. Never listened to them though. But, if I remember correctly, you blogged about them and I looked them up once. Seemed pretty neat. n_n; Supposed to be like the Postal Service, right? Oh wait this is supposed to be about art :x

Anyway yeah, I love the style of your sig. Reminds me a lot of Adam Kubert's art.

Spoiler:


^^from Ultimate X-Men :D

Okay, the gifs look pretty nice. I'm definitely gonna check out their video asap. Owl City's songs are always so bubbly that it'd be interesting to see how a video on bullying would turn out. And how the whole comic book visuals would come together in the video. :3

^ and that looks pretty darn good too. Too bad I'm not really great at distinguishing most western artists and their art. They have distinct styles, yeah, but I've seen such a large variety in the art style in eastern mangas that the western stuff look relatively more same-y to me. That said, I love both. The eastern manga styles do take a little lead but that's just me being biased since the mangas I've read far outnumber the no. of comics I've read and I generally prefer the former, haha.

Honestly, I'm not totally sure when the next icontest will be held. Personally, I'd like to do it as soon as possible. But I think we might end up waiting until Dero is back from his LoA. Shouldn't be too long after this one, though! :D

I'd love it if you start it asap, Jo and Gav. Perhaps on the 1st or 2nd of the coming month itself.

There are some beastly pieces of art in there, btw. This one was amazing:



And oh my god look at this thing; it's terrifying!



Really though, the artists have done an amazing job at these. Easily my favorites. <3;

Pokemon Fusion is one of the best things ever and some of the fanart is amazing. Some of them could work well as actual Pokemon.




Mansprout lol.

This one's really cute. :D



And almost anything with Cubone/Marowak or Beedrill is actually pretty cool. Out of the ones there these two are my favorites.

^ which one are you talking about, GoldMalik? :p

@Mike Kun - Nice to have a place where we can talk art, right? :D As for your question - Again, I'm not really sure which one you're referring to, haha. If you're talking of these fusions as a collective bunch then...idk, Alexial might have a better idea. I honestly just followed the link she's posted above. :p

Uh, hey guys, I've skimmed over this place a few times before XD. I saw those artworks too, in fb if I remember. Personally the Dewbasaur artwork is the best for me XD. Just because of the furring and other things.

But I don't have anything to post . I just wanna ask because I'm gonna start being a digital artist, what are the best tools n stuff for starting out? Like what program I should use etc. What all things I should keep in mind... stuff like that. Only recently I discovered my gift of drawing stuff so I hope someone guides me through XD.

Hohoho, I am going to take this opportunity to ever-so-gracefully plug my very own traditional / digital resource ~ !

Check it out

In there, you can find a list of free illustration programs and pretty much everything you need to learn how to draw! And if you have any questions, feel free to VM me and I'll be more than happy to give you a hand along the way. :D

Why do my FB friends/liked pages not share artistic pieces like these? :(

And yeah, Jo definitely compiled one hell of a guide there. You'll love it. :D
Also, POST IN THE "HOLY **** THEIR ART!" THREAD, PEOPLE ;;
