Good Artists Copy, Great Artists Steal

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Dec. 17, 2016



So this quote that, according to Google, is attributed to Picasso, popped up in my facebook feed, and now I want to talk about it.

At first I thought to make the newspost about plagiarism vs. inspiration, but it sounded something self explanatory, especially in a community of comic artists ...

Mentors

Banes at 12:00AM, May 12, 2016



I like mentor characters.

This is not just me of course; the mentor and protagonist relationship is powerful. Some of the best moments in many stories are the first encounter with the mentor, the training and sense of discovery for the protagonist, and the eventual loss of the mentor character ...

FEATURED COMIC --> Ayla Speaker for the Dead

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, April 27, 2016




Ayla's day job is pretty tough–she is the speaker for the ones without a voice, otherwise known as the dead. It takes a strong individual to be able to call people out on their lies. It is even more difficult when all her clients are no longer alive ...

FEATURED COMIC --> The Silence of the Lamps

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, April 13, 2016



Have you ever laughed at a joke about Hoverboards? Pondered about the museums offered to dung beetles? Compared the strange mannerisms of humans with animals? Made jokes about poppy flowers? Thought about the items that would be sold at a “Man Mart” themed store?

The Silence of the Lamps has ...

One evening, during a town gathering centered around a glowing tree of light, a mysterious cloaked stranger shows up and removes all the light from the tree before fleeing. The switch to darkness unleashes grim shadow monsters to chase after the townspeople and sends the blue-skin toned community into distress ...

Collaborations

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Sept. 28, 2015



I recently watched a concert of Ed Sheeran singing “Thinking Out Loud” when the camera panned to the person playing the piano and it turned out to be Chris Martin from Coldplay and the song finished with a duet. I sat there thinking, “Wow, that really worked.” Collaborating with another ...

Then and Now

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Sept. 7, 2015



“Save ALL your work. Never throw your old art in the trash!” was a repeated mantra from all my art teachers over the years. The reasoning behind this idea makes sense: Old art is like a time capsule for fresh ideas and it can be a great addition in a ...

"Cheating" as an Artist

I had no idea about animation timing or any of the little rules at the time; I just wanted to do ...
