I stumbled throughout an outdated video you may discover fascinating. It’s an interview with Frank Frazetta, one of many all-time greats of illustration and fantasy artwork. I wouldn’t say I’m a fan of those genres and even Frazetta’s work typically, however there’s at all times one thing to be taught from those that have achieved mastery. Frazetta was additionally a mentor of Jeff Watts, who I take drawing instruction from at his atelier.
Anyway, you possibly can watch the video right here:
My favourite half is on the finish of the video the place he describes his ideas on creativity and what it means to be an artist:
“Originality, creativity, that’s it. Look it up in a dictionary, the definition of an artist is a inventive one who is completely trustworthy and authentic. Bingo. If you wish to seem like an artist, you wish to persuade me that you simply’re an artist, I don’t care how detailed it’s, I don’t care whether or not it’s lower than excellent. If it’s authentic, it comes from the center, and makes an announcement that appeals to individuals like me emotionally, I simply love you to demise. That’s my advice.”
Benefit from the video! If you wish to be taught extra, begin with my Portray Academy course.
