Man vs. Art Episode 75! Simpsons artist Luis Escobar, Crucial Art Advice, and an Epic Facebook Fail.

Man vs. Art Episode 75! Simpsons artist Luis Escobar, Crucial Art Advice, and an Epic Facebook Fail.

Play

Luis is an old friend of mine from my art school days. We both got jobs in the animation business at about the same time in 1994. I went to Walt Disney Feature Animation and Luis got on the Simpsons where he still works today as a storyboard artist. Luis is obsessed with drawing and has developed his own theories about drawing at his new site The Drawing Website www.thedrawingwebsite.com , a place specifically created to help teach people how to draw. Then the next segment of the show is the story of a young artist in search of the answer to the eternal question of every artist. How do I become a better artist? His journey takes him to the ends of the globe where he meets the Old Wiseman of Art Mountain. Finally I wrap the show with a story about a bad experience I recently had on Facebook.

Man vs. Art Episode 37! How to make your drawings more expressive.

Man vs. Art Episode 37! How to make your drawings more expressive.

Play

Hola Minions!
In today’s show I give you a few helpful tips on making your drawings more expressive! A simple way to make your characters look more expressive is to pay attention to the eye direction. When you are doing a pin up of a cartoon character 9 out of 10 times you should have the character looking at us. It is much more powerful to have the figure make eye contact with the viewer. A lot of artists show their lack of confidence by having the character looking away. Not good! Unless the eye direction is dictated by the story in a panel or action you should have your cartoon making good eye contact with us.

Project Jose!
Jose Gonzalez is a faithful Minion and developing artist! The guy loves to draw and I have taken him under my wing to help him improve his drawing skills! I assigned him to draw a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat and below is what Jose drew. I then took Jose’s drawing and went over it with red to punch it up a little and help him make a better drawing out of it!
