I get a lot of questions on the Frank Reilly method since I was trained in it under Jeff Watts, Erik Gist, Lucas Graciano and Ben Young. I really can’t give a comprehensive guide on it and there’s very little information on it. I don’t think I am the best person to talk about it though since I’ve only been trained in it for a 6 month duration.
But here’s a video from Glen Orbik. I noticed Nathan Fowkes also uses the Frank Reilly method in his portraits.
Fred Fixler was also trained in it who has a lot of notes up here. Not so much on the Reilly method but regardless good notes.
elinadontcare asked: Do you listen to any artist's podcasts or interviews while you work? Or have any suggestions for where to find good one? Thanks 8)
Oh man lets see, so besides TED which I also listen to let’s see here.
http://www.radiolab.org/series/podcasts/ - Not so much dealing with artists but this is just great, they are pretty lengthy and amazing to work to and it opens up for great discussion with people if you can get them to listen to the same ones you are. Things like learning that what is happening at this moment, has already happened and hearing is your fastest sense. Also learning how sleep works and why we need it, taught me a lot about the learning process in correlation with sleep.
http://www.sidebarnation.com/ is pretty great because well it’s listening to amazing artists talk about their craft.
http://engineervsdesigner.com/ Really fantastic and fun if your into engineering and design.
Has a ton of awesome artist interviews hosted by Dave Rapoza and Dan Warren. They also have ” Critters” which is their critique videos which have a lot of great critiques to learn from.
Other then that I’m usually listening to How Stuff Works ( which is on netflix now!), NOVA science NOW, documentaries and what’s happening with world news.
BTW I’ll be getting to peoples asks this weekend, the ones I’ll need to make tutorials for that’s going to have to wait until I move back to San Diego at the end of the month. Lot of stuff on my plate atm. But I’ll be getting to everyone! Thank you so much for all your questions!
AWESOME!! Free video drawing! These videos are absolutely fantastic. I’m going to do a lengthy review of them sometime but really love all the videos I bought from CDW/CDWA so far. Bought James Paick 1-2 and John Park 1-3 and they’ve been all very educational.
But here’s a link for everyone! Goodluck!!
Disneyland - 4.25 Excerpt - An Adventure in Art
” Disney explains the importance of an artist’s individual style, but also how each member of the team must set aside his personal vision to match the style of the studio production.
Later in the video, Marc Davis, Eyvind Earle, Walter Peregoy, and Joshua Meador, go outdoors to paint a live oak, each one in a different style, each one explaining his intentions. Some paint squatting on the ground with their canvases propped awkwardly on rocks. At 9:29, Eyvind Earle shows how he mixes his caseins in cups. Meador uses highly flammable lighter fluid with his oil paint. Glad he’s not smoking!”

Sorry for being late on the asks but people have been asking me questions I have to find the time between my 45 hr week job and freelance to make tutorials for some of them.
Here’s a preview for one!
One of the sweetest guys I know Michael C. Hayes just shared at places where people post things. What an opportunity of a lifetime!
Goodluck and tell your friends!
Such a fantastic resource!!
In at least Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign CS5 (maybe other programs/versions too), if you go to Window > Extensions > Kuler, you get a palette with preset color palettes that compliment each other, as well as a tool to help you make new ones. Then you can save it to the Kuler list, or to your Swatches palette.
what the fuck
http://jmichek.deviantart.com/ showed me this awesome and now it is yours!
I love kuler a lot I am constantly foraging around it for color palettes.
joshcolon asked you:
First off, I love this blog, it has helped me SO much. On to the question: My nude figure drawing is pretty decent. Always more to learn, but I can do it. I am having problems going to the next step in drawing fully clothed figures and designing armor. I can draw nude figures from my imagination mostly convincing but I cant make the jump. So how do I apply what i’ve learned from figure drawing to doing complete character drawings? How do I learn folds and Armor ect. from imagination?
Yaaaaay folds!! I am so glad my tumblr could be help to anyone. It really makes me blush and smile for days knowing I could help fellow artists on their learning journeys.
~*~ WARNING TONS OF IMAGES ~*~
Okay I fixed it to where if you save the images it’ll be at the original size I hotlinked them as but it won’t show up on tumblr that size for some reason no matter how much coding hoop jumping I go through. Seems tumblr has a fixed width which makes sense for Ipad browsing.
If you save the images you’ll be fine they won’t be super tiny. If you do Save Page As and save the page it’ll dump all the images into a folder and you can grab everything from there easy peasy lemon squeezy!
