Character Sketch Process

The first scoop on this week’s list is a drawing reference guide about sketching cartoon characters. This is an excellent resource for any cartoon artist just as much as it is for seasoned portrait artists. The guide simplifies the drawing process into sketches you can easily follow to build your character’s look.

Head Construction Study Reference Guide

This reference guide is all about the human head and its anatomy. The guide contains a wide range of head shapes at different positions and expressions. If you’re looking for something to improve your facial drawing skills, this guide is a good place to start.

Body Type Study Reference Guide

Finally, the last scoop on this week’s review is one about drawing different body types. The guide can be used to learn about the proportions of the male anatomy and also as a way of visualizing the characteristics of different body shapes.

As always, we will be adding new scoops next week so make sure you follow this topic for more reference guides and resources.

Positive obsessions, productive creativity

Positive obsessions, productive creativity | art | Scoop.it

Creativity coach Eric Maisel, PhD says, "Negative obsessions are a true negative for everyone, but most creators — and all would-be creators — simply aren’t obsessed enough. For an artist, the absence of positive obsessions leads to long periods of blockage, repetitive work that bores the artist himself, and existential ailments of all sorts." -- From his article: In Praise of Positive Obsessions. Quoted in my book Developing Multiple Talents: The personal side of creative expression http://t.co/KqYN0ORZ

Street Art Murals Make Blockade Walls Disappear in Tahrir Square | In the Air: Art+Auction\'s Gossip Column | ARTINFO.com | art | Scoop.it
As an impediment to further protest, the Egyptian army has been building blocky stone walls sectioning off parts of downtown Cairo, making the city center inaccessible. The walls are behemoths made of cubes of rock, and look extremely intimidating. A crew of local artists, however, have taken it upon themselves to break down these barriers by covering the walls in illusionistic murals.

The trompe l’oeil paintings transform the walls into perfectly in-perspective streetscapes and landscape vistas that are a literal and symbolic sally against political censorship. Check out a collection of 360-degree views of the murals here. The beautification isn’t about prettifying the blockades, though. Artist Mohamed Gad told Foreign Policy that “We’re not embellishing the walls… We’re simply stating that the streets are open.”

A Conversation with Jamil Zaki About Empathy and Art

A Conversation with Jamil Zaki About Empathy and Art | art | Scoop.it
James Scott interviews Jamil Zaki, writer, neuroscientist, and professor of psychology, about how art informs society's empathy.

 

James Scott: So one of the things we talk about a lot is empathy and how it relates to the arts. You believe it’s a necessary component, and a critical building block, in becoming an artist in the first place, right?

 

Jamil Zaki: Human beings are not the world champions of many things. We’re not big, strong, fast, or sharp (at least tooth-wise). But we are the world champions of understanding each other. In a way, art—and especially narrative art—is the greatest expression of that ability. Narrative is a way to embody lives and worlds we have yet to experience, and in almost all cases will never experience. In a way, it’s a type of empathy boot camp: living as many lives as possible without having to leave a single room.
