Fantastic Fan Art Friday - 07-29-2016

Fantastic Fan Art Friday
Happy Friday, everyone, and welcome back to another fan art feature!  This week we're taking a look at Pokémon fan art that use rich palettes and spectacular lighting to set a magical mood and atmosphere!
Moody lighting and deep color palettes often invoke an emotional response from the viewer.  Warm palettes and strong light can convey happiness and content feelings where cool colors and soft lighting may feel sorrowful or calm.  Paintings where the figure seem to emit their own light tend to feel ethereal while figures hidden in shadow seem mysterious.  Escape into the magic of color and light in these beautiful Pokémon fan pieces!

'I want to be a better artist.'
This is a sentiment I hear often on dA. It's usually followed by a question regarding how one should go ABOUT becoming a better artist.
  I've no doubt made journals like this in the past, but here's another one. This page was in dire need of an update, either way. : )
  I could probably talk your ear off for a mile and a half about why I should be the last person you ask for creativity-boosting advice. Aaaand I have my reasons for this, but that's not really what anyone who writes me wants to hear, I think. It's just a fair warning. I'm not an accredited teacher, I was far from the most capable person at my college, I've made a metric crapton of mistakes, and I am nowhere near where I'd like to be in my own personal artistic endeavors. If that doesn't bother you, well, keep on reading!
  The best way I could aid anyone interested in bettering themselves would probably be by giving you the advice that inspires me the most. Stuff I've heard from frie

My 4 art related resolutions for 2016:
:bulletyellow: Complete at least 6 Schoolism Self-Taught classes before my yearly subscription expires. Complete the assignments. All of them
:bulletyellow: Become consistent with networking, now that I know how to make it pleasant for me. Be active at least weekly.
:bulletyellow: Develop my personal projects. Complete an outline of my main OCs and headworld
:bulletyellow: Stop running away from perspective and dynamic poses. I'll study and practice until I'm able to build interiors with characters doing things. From any angle

Cleared art related resolutions:
Good habits I picked up and plan to maintain:
:bulletgreen: Exercise daily (walk/jog/ride bike) + stretching. More art related than it seems
:bulletgreen: Sit in a correct posture during work
:bulletgreen: Turn off computer by midnight, set alarm at 8:30am - on regular working days, that is
:bulletgreen: Keep a daily sketchbook
:bulletgreen: Conquer time management - currently using a Pomodoro-based technique
:bulletgreen: Learn how to chillax :la:

You know those people that barely leave their rooms and only seem comfortable with making online friends? Those extreme internet people that need to let the world know about the number of times they took a crap today?
SPOT ON that’s me, only backwards. I’m a lurker at best. I’m totally cool with real life and I’d love to spend my whole life THERE in the real world. Only it’s not that good an idea for an “artist” to abandon the opportunities that come with online marketing. Right? But I don’t want networking to feel like a chore. Right now, it does. As soon as I have work to do, I have an excuse to run off for months and feel free from the burdens of social networking. I don’t want this to be about marketing alone. I honestly want to feel excited about browsing and interacting and joining discussions!
I’d love to, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to do this. Somehow, it doesn’t seem to work for me. I feel people are so distant and I can't have the kind of contact I find in real life. Perhaps I only need some patience, practice and inspiration?
:bulletblue: Tell me about the positive aspects of your experience on socializing online as an artist/art enthusiast
. Did you make new friends? Got in contact with artists you admire? Took part in nice events you remember fondly? I’m interested in relationships and good memories, not “usefulness”. I know Internet can give me anything I’d ever need, but I want to start seeing it as a place full of real people, not just information.
I did make friends online years ago and it was great. I wish I could be more constant and actually be there with them, but I need to get rid of this stupid social media anxiety. 
Feel free to send me a note about this if you prefer that kind of communication!
