Picture It – Be scared, be very scared… of fanart. (Safe for Work)

January 11, 2012, by , posted in Art, Features

In almost all the artist communities, the large majority of works each community holds will probably consist of fanart over original art. This is not only limited to animes or manga, but also fanart of movies, of books – basically anything.

Naturally, fanart often delves in character history, specific situations (either imagined or existing in the original story), relationships between certain characters (by which I undoubtedly also mean of a romantic nature), … ‘ecchi’ (perverted) images, and much, much more besides. Artists are unbelievably creative, and anything you can imagine, it will probably have been done, or someone is doing it.

Mmm, that’s good Music Monday!

January 9, 2012, by , posted in Features, Music

And now for something completely different!

So I was sitting here this afternoon thinking about what I should write for Music Monday, given I’d elected to do so again. I wasn’t short of inspiration, Nisemonogatari had just started the previous day and I’d been obsessed enough with Bakemonogatari to consider using the theme for that. Amagami SS was a series I never admitted to watching in polite company, but I did, and I could talk about the music from there.

Picture It – Weekly Wednesday Art Dose

December 21, 2011, by , posted in Art, Features

Like all great things, ideas are copied from better places and people, so just like your weekly dosage of music, this will be your weekly dosage of art for whatever purpose (as long as you don’t steal it).

Art does not have to be intricate to be beautiful, sometimes an inordinate and insightful idea/theme is just as captivating, or even if art piece is just used for humourous effect. You can draw inspiration from other artists, but ultimately draw the way you want, and in the way which is comfortable for you.

This week to start off, we’ll be picking something from Pixiv. I can’t take you to the start of it all, since I’m lacking a bit of knowledge in that realm, but hopefully these pieces will be something you all are fairly familiar with and can appreciate the beauty of.
