By this way my pleasure to notify you after my long two years recovering- personal thing around my families and so no I finally find an inspire place to live. Place which give my time and space for self- development. Place I really need to develop my interest and love.
During my difficulties in 2010 I jumped from graphic design which I have been doing since 2005 to artistic sphere. I bought a wacom intuos and start painting. I really found at in it passion. But it was for my difficult somehow start. Even tough I have not so much time to focusing to it, because difficulties in my family health problem etc. So make it shorter. I painted only few things- I am totally beginner.
Now I have more time I have inspire place to work on it very hard. My plan is in this time to start more with reading and being inspired. Even how to start. Maybe Firstly I would like to start traditionaly with piece of paper and pencil
I found ouf myself very passioned in landscapes, environments. That is what I would like to do, designing these stuff for video games, movies etc. But firstly I need some guidance, tips, inspirations, interview with best artists. Suggestions what tools for sketching use- which exact pencils? or Markers?
But the most important thing right now is to subscribe some Printed magazine about art in the best way focusing to things I described above.
Please guys can you give my advice ?
Which magazine is really good?
Which tools should I use?
Which book is good for it? to buy?
Thank you so much. I will aprreciate any kind of respond.
examples of sketching environment I am interested in:
It seems to me you are overthinking things.
All you need is the following: A pack of any brand printer paper. A box of any brand HB or 2B pencils, whichever works better for you. And sketch everything.
And go visit a nearby library for art books and magazines, from time to time.
ok thanks for advise I try to buy some sketching tools and stqrt sketch everything best advise I think. but otherwise I would like to firstly also read. I would like to subscribe magazine about art sketching and envirnment concept art and paintings also supported that with book
please can anybody give ,e advise which book and which printed magazine subscribe? thank you very much
www.imaginefx.com is the best digital painting magazine that i know of
there is a thread all about books here: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...s-Reading-List
With regards to magazines, the sky is the limit. I subscribe to popular science, popular mechanics, national geographic, Road & Track. I pick up comics at my local comic shop. I also pick up this mag from time to time: http://idnworld.com/
In all honesty, it’s up to you, research images inspire you, draw from them. Don’t just limit yourself to “Art” magazines.
As I went through possibilities of these tools I found out very interesting marker tool called copic
or sakura from japan
But I think i will be need also some grafit pencil
please last my ruquest on you can you seggest me tools and where in belgium I mean online buy it? thank you ver much
Read the stickies here, especially in the Fine Art section and Tutorials, then come back and ask again.
hb 2b pencils and proper paper including with markers- copic or sakura. But I have no idea where it buy it prabably it would be there some online place where all of these stuff buy it. i am living now in belgium and I am wondering where to buy it. if somebody have some idea I will be so grateful for any advise. thank you very much
If you are going to buy markers, be aware that you need marker paper for best results, and it's best to stick to a set of gray markers until you know that you want to work primarily in marker. Markers are very expensive, you need many colours (because you can't blend them as easily as paint), and if you have to buy them online they are difficult to replace when they wear out.
Also, experiment a little. Pencils are cheap. Slick paper and hard pencils make me sad. Rough paper and soft pencils make me happy. Happy makes better art.
I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).
1. Rough brand paper
2: Severel 2B an hb pencils
3. Sakura marker
I am living in belgium an I am wondered where to find these stuff? can you in last time please give an advice where to online order it? many thanks
