As we all know that white is a color that is not very commonly used in your paintings, but this color has its own special properties that we all can use to make our paintings look more fabulous! So, what's so special about white? It is its property of being a really good mixer that can mix any two or more than two colors to create a number of shades! Only white has this property because all the
Quick Start to AnimationDigital Art
Animation is defined as the ability to create an illusion of movement when static (non-moving) images are shown in a sequence. Digital animation is the process of creating animated characters, objects, and environments through digital means. One thing artists new to animation often are not told is that digital animation has all of the same elements that one would find in traditional animation. The only difference is that many of the techniques used in digital animation are customized specifically for use in the digital world. Also, did you know movies such as Monsters Inc., Inside Out, and Finding Nemo all are examples of digital animation. Well, you do now!
Let's face it, getting started in any art medium begins with the individual. It is up to you to determine which medium interests you the most. You are the one who
Interview With KENBARTHELMEYDigital Art Week
Hello and welcome back to Digital Art Week here at projecteducate! Today, I have chosen to interview an artist who is a shining example of how passion and perseverance can help you realize your dreams in the field of digital art!
This is Ken Barthelmey's story:
"I was born 1989 in Luxembourg, and started drawing and sculpting at an early age. I have always been passionate about art and all creative things in general, especially Science Fiction films and movie monsters had always fascinated me. I taught myself how to draw and paint. I learned and never stop learning by practice. Since 2011, I have been working professionally as a freelance concept designer. My focus and expertise is creature and character design. I was very fortunate to be part of a few high profile film projects, which includes "The Maze Runner’’(2014), "The Scorch Trials’’(2015), and other still unannounced productions."
3-Dimensional: Getting Started as a 3-D ArtistDigital Art
3-D (three dimensions or three-dimensional) art refers to an object/figure in an environment, as well as the seemingly real appearance of a form that is drawn and/or painted to create a sense of real-life illusion within a 2-Dimensional (2-D) space.
There are three-phases in the creation process of 3-D artwork: tessellation , geometry , and rendering. First, models are created of individual objects using linked points that are made into a number of individual polygons. The second phase is when the polygons are transformed and lighting effects are applied. In the final phase, the transformed images are rendered into objects with very fine detail.
Getting started into 3-Dimensional art is the same as getting started with any medium; you have to start learning it. There are no shortcuts or tricks to becoming a 3-D artist. If
Mixed MediaDigital Art
When compared to the other digital categories the Mixed Media category seems to be the main one that confuses people. Over the years, I have heard more definitions and explanations for what Mixed Media is and what it is not compared to any other category. So I am going to stop the confusion and chaos that surrounds Mixed Media! Today, I will be explaining what mixed media is, how to determine if your art is mixed media, and how using it can open up a new world of possibilities for your art.
The Mixed Media category here on DeviantArt is for artwork in which more than one medium has been used. For example, in my artwork "The Bunker" as shown below; I combined digital painting, photomanipulation, and 3-Dimensional elements to create it. Due to the use of more than one digital medium I uploaded this piece to the Digital Art > Mixed Media gallery here on DeviantArt. Thus, for an artwork to be considered Mixed Media<
PE:How To Achieve Smooth and Clean LinesDigital Art
Since it's something many people struggle with while working digitally, today I will be discussing how you can achieve smooth and clean lines using digital mediums.
SAI Stabilizer Tool
Paint Tool SAI offers my favorite method of creating smooth lines with its easy to use Stabilizer tool that works with absolute ease and no need for complicated setting adjustments. It doesn't matter how shaky your hands might be, the stabilizer tool will still be capable of creating beautifully smooth lines for you.
As you can see, the stabilizer tool is easily accessed, and you can quickly and easily adjust the level of stabilization you desire. The lower the number selected, the least amount of stabilization is utilized, the higher the more. I generally leave the stabilizer tool set to the highest setting (as seen above), though I've found that sometimes if you're working with smaller brush sizes reducing the stabilizer

What is Digital Drawing?
In simple terms, drawing is a sketch, picture, illustration, representation, portrayal, delineation, depiction, composition, study, diagram, outline, design, plan, artist's impression or tracing.

PE: Art as a key element in EducationCommunity Week
Education is a process that spans a person's entire life, broadcasting a wide range of knowledge, values (which allow us to develop our conscience and sensibility), customs, and ways to act. This is also linked to cultural conscience (education leads us to appreciate the culture of the society in which we live) and to the view that each person has about the world around them. It also has a social approach as it allows people be part of the socialization process. It generally has a humanistic approach that trains students to be good people, to have good values and implement them, which are expressed according to the person's potential.
