Daily Deviation

Given 2010-09-26
ImagInAction by `AquaSixio -- Suggester's words: I find it amazingly useful. Not only it offers you a general idea of how to get inspiration but also helps artists think in a different way and make their work unique. Also suggested by *Maverchare. ( Suggested by milyKnight and Featured by FantasyStock )

Thank you so much for this! I've really struggled with coming up with something creative that I actually like lately, and I found this at the perfect time. Again, thank you!

You are...just amazing. I can't tell you how much this helps me. I have always felt like I have no creativity because I draw photorealistic portraits (human and animal) but have never really been able to truly "create." I felt like I had to pull something amazingly original and unique out of nothing, but you've taught me that it is actually possible. I just need to tap into the many things I think about/love/hate/need/want/feel and combine them into a single idea. It seems so simple, but it isn't if you haven't been shown the way! Thank you so much. Also love your colour turtles :love:

Thank you very much for this tutorial
Woow. You make some really nice tutorials, and this is pretty handy. A lot of thinking appears to be involved, though. (By any chance, are you a writer/do you like languages? Most of those strategies are word-related.)

J'ai vraiment cru un bref instant que vous étiez un anglais ayant suivi des études poussées pour apprendre le français. C'est à dire que vous avez une façon très ambigüe de vous exprimer : "It's more creative when I use a foreign language". En tout cas si vous êtes bien français, je salue l'aisance que vous avez à passer de l'une à l'autre langue, c'est très confusant, si je peux me permettre le barbarisme.

Mis à part cette remarque complètement débile, j'aime beaucoup vos compositions, elles sont très inspirantes (non pas seulement, elles sont absolument sublimes). Et quant à votre "technique" de créativité (si c'est une technique ?), inspiration surréaliste ? (je n'affirme rien, je tente juste le coup, au hasard, comme ça :D )

Aye, aye, un jour il faudra que j'arrête de parler (d'écrire) pour rien dire. Bonne journée en attendant.

You. Make. The best. Tutorials. EVER.
ArtOfDew Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013   Digital Artist
This is probably the best tutorial I've ever stumbled upon. We need more tutorials like this. Thanks so much for sharing! :D
Pewnirij Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The tutorial is helpful and all, very inspiring, but the last picture I made which was the most creative picture I ever made, got like 3 favorites, so I don't get the point. Don't get me wrong, I love creative and original art, but apparently others don't, so it makes you feel like a total idiot when your friend makes fanart with almost the same quality as your original art and gets 10x more faves :ashamed:.
AquaSixio Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I don't mind to be popular you know, and I paint, I want to say something... different ! :p I am glad you notice this point =) Thank you for your support !
Vaporeon0274 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013  Student General Artist
I really like the first method, it seems like you could come up with some interesting things with it. Which is seems you have.

I sort of stumbled upon you at random, and I would like to say that I think your work is beautiful. Makes me want to try out painting instead of playing fill-in-the-lines with my current artwork.

Thank you for making beautiful works.

Oh, wow, you should compile all of these tuts and make a book or e-book or something :)
They are really helpful, especially this one.

A very good tutorial. It's a pitty that i did not discover this one earlier. It's not only suitable to Illustrators but also for any kind of artist or person who needs creative ideas. I knew most of the techniques but they are easier to understand if you can actually see someone using them in action. Thank you for this.
EmuroMiq Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012
dunno what to say. Just astonished, surprised, and eyes wide opened

Amazing! :heart:
Random-Star Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Fantastic tutorial. Endless possibilities, and a fun way to get inspiration! I always find that I'll have the motivation to do something, but I always have myself doing the same things over and over again (which does quite a number on my self-esteem when I realize I've painted the same things every time). Definitely will put this in my favourites for a nice reminder once in a while. :)
