Fantasy project for class.
i can’t even caption this
I went to an awesome sci-fi/fantasy illustration panel today with speakers Donato Giancola, Rebecca Guay, Greg Manchess, Sam Weber and Michael Whelan at the Society of Illustrators in NYC! These are the steps I gathered about how to become a successful illustrator for those unable to make it to the panel:
Step 1: Be confident in your work
Step 2: Find out you suck when you graduate
Step 3: Work hard for a few years so you don’t suck anymore
Step 4: Don’t suck
Step 5: Be successful and do whatever the fuck you want because people will pay you for it.
One-Punch Man is best manga. Also has some of the best art ever. Same guy who drew Eyeshield 21, the fantastic Yusuke Murata!
World’s Most Beautiful Abandoned Places
Italian product manager and web designer Francesco Mugnai recently added a collection of images to his blog touting some of the most beautiful images of abandoned spots and modern ruins that he’d ever seen. The images Mugnai has captured come from empty castles, shuttered power plants, and dilapidated churches around the world. From a sunken yacht in Antarctica to a forever-closed amusement park in Japan, these images all make up a sort of anti-phoenix; rather than rising as new from the ashes, these husks remain preserved in decomposition, forcing viewers to confront the strange beauty of ruination.
Yay finished illustration! :D
Can we all take a minute and appreciate that hundreds of years ago a person poured hours of hard work into painting cherubs making human fart bubbles.
