What I want to learn.
Everyday I check out new deviations of people I watch, and often I see something I really like. I was looking at a piece by this artist and I saw why I liked their style.
I'm now aiming to add a "little" more realism to my style, yet still retain the anime heritage, so I'm analyzing the works of some artists here on DevArt.
I liked Genzoman's work because of the "painting-ness" of their appearance, and what I want to learn from his work is the minimal lineart which is expressed through the use of colors.
Still, what I really want to learn is Reiq's dynamic lighting. The way he expresses the glow reflected from hair and shiny clothes, the "backlights" or shine opposite the main light source, and other such things. I really wish there was a book on the theory behind those lighting techniques.
Until then, its trial and error for me.
Anyway, change topic. I've been reflecting on the reason why I create art. I know that not everyone in the world will see my work, so that is not why I make them.
For me, it's the feeling you get when you look at something beautiful you created.
That feeling is...
P.S. Erk... Mastercard. Haha!!
