Blogger Shout Out Dana Sibilsky

Published by:

Thanks Rebecca!

Mrs. Sibilsky latest post about digital art is about something I have a good bit of experience in. She writes about virtual artists and their tools. An informative post about the pros and cons of Adobe and Gimp. Both of which I have written about and use frequently. She goes on to introduce some 3d programs for her readers to try out. I have worked in 3d art before and she has picked some great programs to test.

It was for this reason that I founded my personal blog. I am very passionate about the arts and society’s connection to culture and I wanted to share how I felt with as many people who were interested. I decided to share my thoughts and insights in a way that was most accessible, explaining my beliefs and opinions in the simplest and most direct manner possible. The response has been overwhelmingly positive and I have received a great deal of feedback from my readers who had previously felt that this was a subject that was just “over their head.”

How to Sell Your Art

Published by:

No matter where you go near or far, you’ll find opportunity. The best opportunity you’ll find as an artist is to provide your service and the better you are at your art and your service, the more and more often you’ll get paid.  There are so many artists who sell artwork online, at home, during art shows or even at art fairs. The one struggle for artist is actually making a sell. How do you do it? An artist is an artist, not a salesperson and this is where the complications come in.

 

Who should you sell your art to? This is probably the most important question you can ask yourself. You’re a passionate artist and you spend time, emotions and money into creating your masterpiece. You have an attachment to your hard work and want someone to buy it who will truly appreciate everything that went into your work, right? You’ll find your customer by targeting that specific person.

 

When you target exactly who your client of choice will be, you are going to know exactly what that person wants in an artwork and you’ll have the what they are looking for. Far too many artist believe the best way to sell their pieces of work is to put it up online and just leave it there; thinking eventually the fish will bite. This is not the case and by doing this you are wasting time and fooling yourself.

 

To sell, first you need to have YOUR own style instead of changing your style to meet a buyer’s demands. The right people will be interested in your style and will have to have it. Stay true to your work and your style of art, for example, abstract art. Pinpoint the right buyer who is interested in abstract art and the art will basically sell itself. It’s easier than you think!

Two of the Best Artistic Tools For Virtual Arts

Published by:

Through the years advancing into the technology and science era, computers have changed how we do just about everything. While some artists still prefer the good ol’ fashioned pencil and paper or the paint and the canvas, many creative minds have taken on the virtual arts made solely with a computer. If you are interested in creating art on the computer, there are a loads of artistic software that can be purchased, but that’s not what we are focusing on. Everyone in the world knows about Adobe’s amazing products such as Photoshop, which happens to be the most popular artistic program in the world. Save your money and let’s talk about creative art programs that will save you some cash.

While still hooked on the subject of Adobe Photoshop, it looks like an amazing program and it is! Endless possibilities and more than one way to achieve your artistic goals. This amazing program can, however, destroy your bank account. Thankfully, we have GIMP! GIMP is a Photoshop clone that can do almost everything Photoshop can. The program is free and flexible allowing you to place your windows anywhere on the screen you’d like. GIMP is powerful and for an artist on a budget, it will be your next best friend.

Have you ever wanted to get into 3D modeling? I’ve done that a bit, too and for me, it’s just not my cup of tea. The reason being is there is so much that goes into one project and I found it difficult to keep up with it all. I’ll never take the art work done in movies such as Toy Story and other Pixar projects for granted every again now that I know how much work and dedication goes into only 20 seconds of video! If you are looking to get into 3D modeling, get into using Blender. Blender or better known as “Blender 3D” is a free program that has been around for many years and the community is always growing, just like the program itself. Compared to other programs for 3D modeling, I found this one to be the easiest. Go for it!

There are so many other solutions of free programs and I’m still trying them out one by one slowly, but surely.  What are your favorite free programs? Do you prefer computer art or physical art?
