Ever since I've join Deviantart , This wonderful art community website has helped me get through improving , embracing , and recognized how to make my artwork plus my animations better. And every time i upload each art piece and socialize in the forums post , People will give there honest opinions plus critiques on stepping up the next step to making my artwork improve better with the right words in each paragraph people explain in there critiques and thats what matters in a art community. A art community where all artists of all ages can come together as one , post comments to other peoples work and then having to do the same with the other artist . And thats how its going to help one artist for another artist to become the best ever , promote there artwork to the right target plus audience at the right targeted ages of people's common interest. What i did below is pick out the five best of my artwork to explain how they've impact my life as a cartoonist , animator , and freelance artist.
Now for the summary story how i joined and discovered deviantart. It all started when i was given a tour to a trade school for animation and all different other classroom that relates to each job like plumbing , woodcarpeting , etc. until one day as a Asian kid who's name i forgot , notice that i do cartooning for a living with no animation learning experience back in 2008 as i came here to learn flash animation. When he wrote down the URL on my CCOC "Central County occupational center" brochure for a website called "Deviantart". So when i came home i checked out the website and soon enough i joined the site as soon as i fell in love with the idea of socializing , commenting , sharing and all that junk whatever online artists do. I develop a hateful taste on trolling other artists due to taking it out on my own in real life problems with family issues and father and son conflicts. And as the years when on , i begin to learn my differences and understandings that hating on other people's artwork just wont make me any more of a hateful person Ive become on deviantart. So i learned my lesson and begin respecting others on deviantart , which got me ban a couple years back for my obsession bad behavior to taking out on other bad people for giving me a hard time. And also realized that even when people here give you a really hard time. I ignore them , and learn to focus on the positive side and try reminding myself that people have different opinions which makes everyone special for themselves. And to except there negative comments and to let trolls be trolls , i cant change the way they think and they cant change me the way i want to think , if they've a issue with me , that's that too bad. The easy solution to this problem is to ignore me , if Iam inspired to draw Garfield style artwork then that's what ill be inspired as part of the key to becoming a successful artist. You can accuse of me copying Jim davis's Garfield artwork , and it'll always be fine with me thus including my summary story to how i become familiar with deviantart. I alot of good friends here , i had my inner demons within me Iam not proud of , and i may have trouble on this website. But i continue socializing her on deviantart and too interact with artists and to embrace my ability to promote my artwork. Even after deviantart i joined some other artsites for some quite time and non of them didnt work out for me in a couple of years due to issues with other immature people with no heart for respecting art styles from artists like me. And that's why deviantart will only be my home here to share , interact , and the viewers i gain for my artwork
.My five art features !
Here in this shape tweening animation , i was really looking for a challenge that not many artists and animators can even compare there artistic talents. Something that not even me can dare to animated to step my level in animating something this complicated. So what i did was watch other shape tweening tutorials and gave it all the brain patiences I've in my body to really pin point how Iam going to animate this interactive comparison from having to morph this person from boy to woman. And surly enough I was able to do it with the practice , knowledge from all my animation skills , and the guts to challenge myself a bit harder to get to what i need to animate this. That will use to be in future animations ill use for in my cartoons one day.
Now not many animators I've seen out there perhaps a few would create a game thats similar to this. Like this flappy inspired meme game I've learn how to create , animate , express through the humor and love plus patiences to create a funny fun flash game that all it takes is a little youtubing. And boom ! , you learn at least another new skill on flash gaming action scripting 3.0 .And to tell you the truth not that many people can recognized , acknowledge , and learn how one does the action scripting coding to create something that may be used in the next xbox game , ps4 console video game , or even in a movie ! So i made this game for a reason and thats to challenge myself and too really make it out there in the world of animation gaming and really know my priorities to let each person at a time what kinds of skills to know what i can do rather then drawing , animation , or illustration.
When i started using photoshop , i really didn't dig deep on how i was suppose to paint , draw , shaw , and balloon caption it the proper way. So what i did was watch some youtube videos on how some people did there drawings in photoshop and how people did there speech balloons. So once I've these knowledge I've learn from other youtube artists , i get digging on how i want to create a drawing that not many people can relate too or love to relate too. And once i begin drawing i start including my imagination , all my knowledge about photoshopping from the recent youtube videos , and my other self taught knowledge I've learn to embrace just by watching cartoons Garfield
. And thats when this results to my artwork like this one turns out to be so shortly after having your artwork being finished with the results your satisfied with. Boom your all ready to show the world through social media to fish out the best comments people with opinions have to throw out to you. But i know its now easy to have people take criticism easily , its not meant to be harsh its to have others like me recognize whats to improve , make it better , stand out more , and what it takes to have your artwork spread to your audience to make them say "wow ! , now thats the next great artist i know". And by having you take your time to listen to your viewers i promise you;ll become the best artist yet ! , and usually parody spoof sketches like this one i drew was because spoofing anime show like Attack on titan
was really funny to me and i had the thought of drawing this out. And sasha who's this female character who loves eating potatoes , so i pictured in my head as a munchies loving girl who i imagine she does marijuana and thats how i pick this one out as my favorite. I mean anyone can pick a fave or another anime show they hated and just make a spoof artwork to feature on deviantart and ignore the case on other people's opinions and just enjoy the response other people give about your artwork. Cause the likes , comments , or favorites don't matter to me at all its the views that matter. The more people view your stuff , the less likely for me to make me happy and that'll always matter to me as a cartoonist , artist , and professional animator.
I know for one fact way i picked this one out , its because sometimes people have bad childhoods and some of them are ashamed of themselves for being afraid to express how fearful there childhood is. So they turn back to there childhood favorite and thats disney baby stuff , thats what keeps them well comfort through out there adulthood in order to prevent there childhood awful memories from interfering with there marriage or any of there important grownup years. Same with going to disney land when people travel there , they built a barrier between the hateful world. To having a calmer , peaceful serenity , and happy life when the theme park quotes " The happiest place on earth doesn't mean you can just act like an adult baby and just let your mature life have your baby life take over you and make you the baby you're. And by acting like that other people can even start leaving you behind stating what a weirdo you're for being obsessed with babyish toys like mickey the mouse. And thats why i drew this and picked out as my favorite as my art feature.
The reason why i picked this artwork to feature out , was the fact that i wanted to explain to you all that this comic strip Iam showing you all. Was one of my comic strips that got published at my local college paper which i should be proud of , but however its not easy being a comic strip artist at my journalism class so for my pros and cons Im about to explain right now. Its not because picked out , its because sometimes my college newspaper team staffs can be harsh sometimes and try changing some dialogs to my comic and request me to make changes or to prevent getting in trouble such as the fact that. My editor-in-chief pointed out in the second penal box was stating a false fact about the board of directors recognized half the kids here on campus are fat , so my advisor also agreed that this is something our newspaper staff will get in trouble for making false facts in illustrated work. So my question to you all is , do you agree what my other teammates said about making false facts in illustrated artwork ? Otherwise on the other end my pros , was that the comic was funny in my case.
