Neverending Story Project


Well hello there my friends! Since this is a site for artists and art appreciators everywhere, I wanted to take the time to tell you all about a new project I have going on that I would absolutely LOVE for you all to get involved in.

Myself and a friend of mine named Amy have started the Neverending Story Project, or as you can see above in the banner... the NeS Project. The project is a writing project designed to show you the fun of story telling. Basically in a nutshell this is the project: three page short stories with each page written by a different author and all of it done through the mail. Once a story has been completed, we post them online with the authors and you can discuss the work.

Once the project gets going, we will have lots of incentives including things like the Story of the Month and for illustrators out there, we would absolutely LOVE to open this up to you. What do I mean? Well we would like for you to read over the stories and take a shot at bringing the stories to life! If your art is chosen, we will add your art to the displayed stories and credit you alongside the authors. Awesome, right? We think so!

We need more followers, so if you check out this blog and read what I have to say... check out the Neverending Story Project as well! If you like what you see, follow us and participate! You do NOT need to be a professional writer... it's all for fun! You can do any genre of story... and when you get someone else's story page... don't be afraid to change up the style and give it your very own flare!

Questions? Ask away here or visit the site, comment, or email us! I really hope to see you all over at the site and hopefully here from you via snail mail!

Zambi

Today we have zambi from deviantART on Art Libs! Still working on some backlog and such, and if you are interested in being featured, just send me a message and I'll let you know what the scoop is for now! Also, I've been mentioning to everyone who reads this, I'm encouraging anyone who enjoys the art featured to ask questions to the artists or send them comments by posting them below! I'm trying to let all the artists know to check the comments. I can't guarantee that they will respond, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't leave your questions and such... you never know! Anyways, enjoy!

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest would be coloring and the hardest would be getting whats in my head onto paper. Most of the time it only comes out 50% But on rare occasions I like the outcome better!

Which is your favourite piece and why?
At the moment this one: It just feels very professional to me and I enjoy the colors.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I love seeing pretty art that inspires me. So I like to share so maybe people can be inspired by my work. I also like that you can find other people that have the same interests as you. And they're artists too.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Off the top of my head I guess someone randomly telling me about their personal life. It had nothing to do with the image and I didn't ask haha. I don't know what image that comment is made on tho.

Anyways, enjoy!

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
To me, I think the hardest part is to get started... I always get the 'too lazy to start a new artwork' feeling (usually after finishing one)...but once I started, I couldn't stop...

I have no idea what is the easiest part of my artistic progress... probably it's the 'finding inspiration' part :)

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I'll have to say it's "beauty"...why? i love drawing fur...and this piece is my very first sttempt to draw fur so detailedly...i know it's not perfect yet, but during the progress of drawing it i learned so much about drawing fur techniques, and i kept improving fur drawing ever since :)

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Because I don't know any other art community :)
I guess it's because deviantART is user friendly...

Anyways, enjoy!

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part about the artistic process is that anything that I can see with my eyes can become the subject of my photographies. On the other hand, is hard to actually make anything look good as a photography.

Which is your favorite piece and why?
This one is my favourite piece because I love the way children relax and play, they are so peaceful compared to adults.

What is it about the deviant Art community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I love the fact that everyone is so active on dA. I share my art on dA because I am always interested to find out other persons' opinion about my pieces and I love giving feedback to others and looking for great artists to admire their work.

If you missed the past weeks posts, I'm trying to encourage all you readers out there to ask the artist questions, I can't guarantee that they will respond, but if you leave a comment or question below, I will make sure that when I contact them, they will know about it and have a chance to respond! I hope this helps all you artists out there find answers to questions you would like to know about and such! Please enjoy!

We're still doing some backlog right now, and these are some people who only gave us questions, so no art libs for now! Today, we have FaMz or Faheema from deviantART on the site, check it out and enjoy!

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Hm...that's a tough and broad question, the easiest part, lol, I'm not sure there's an easy part for me, actually, the easiest part most of the times is the execution depending on what's being done (if it's easy to produce like photography). The hardest part is the preparation, the conceptual development, the whole process of planning for the final outcome is probably the difficult part, the ideas need to be conceptualized, you should at least plan and be aware that what you do will lead to what you want in the outcome or the whole thing fails and all time is wasted.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
At the moment, this is my favourite piece because I believe it's the first personal project I ever spent so much time planning and working on. I didn't get annoyed with it, well only at times; the background was giving me lots of trouble. It's my favourite because it says a lot about who I am and things that I like, even the colours are almost pastel like which I didn't think suit me but somehow, subconsciously it came out looking the way it did. It's also a new style I've also recently begun to start developing and I hope to continue working on.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
For one, it's to gain feedback, and to share with others what I've been learning from just being on the site. I've improved tremendously just spending time browsing the galleries on dA, so what I put up is a lot of what I've been inspired be.
What draws me to the community is the never ending way that I'm constantly dropping my jaw and saying wow at the creativity I see. Makes me feel like my work is nothing but then it makes me think, if someone else can achieve it, so can I. It's just amazing, how could anyone not want to be surrounded with eye candy and the lovely personalities that go with the art? Plus I've made some lovely friends so I love to log in to communicate with them.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I think for me the easiest part is to imagine and make concepts, also to make spontaneous photos of people in the streets... and the hardest is to Make them real, to act, and some part of the Post-Production, but is not that hard, because when you love to do something, nothing is difficult.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Sorry, but i don't have just one favorite.. I have a LOT!!!!

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
DeviantART is an amazing virtual space to know other artist works and of course to be criticized is great because that way you can learn to improve your self and do better things... and of course i feel great to know my works inspire other people.

What is the strangest, weirdest or funniest comment you have received?
There are a lot, but in one piece in particular make the first comment so funny I couldn't stop laughing... one of my friends put: HADOKEN!!

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The hardest part is choosing the subject and the easiest part is painting it.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favourite piece is 'Back to Home', for its emotive intensity.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
DeviantART is a very good community to promote my own art.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part would be cropping out and matching lights for me. I guess it all comes with practice though. The hardest part is finding the right stocks for a manip. It's easier when I start with a stock that inspires me rather than just an idea I have in mind.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Infinity, I just love how it came out and it means all that much that it was so appreciated that it got a DD (on the wallpaper set of it though).

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
dA kinda went downhill for me. It seemed like a great place at first but it actually faded along the way. I stick to it mostly cause it's my main art showcase gallery.

What is the weirdest, strangest or funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Someone made a comment about the legs of one of the models I used. I wasn't sure if I should be laughing or be sickened by it. Oh and I was called a "dude" in several comments so that should fit into that category as well.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Every part is the hardest part to me, but it's fun all the drawing process. So, the easiest part is... signature.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
She's my original character, and because it's my best CG so far.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Maybe you don't believe, but in Vietnam, there's a lot of people that hate me and my work so much. So I came to DeviantART. DeviantART has many talented artists. I learn lots here.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Easiest is probably coming up with the initial sketch. Once I have the idea in my mind, sketching it out is usually the most fun part. The hardest part for me is the really obsessively detailed parts of the coloring. This is also the part that takes the longest.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Probably this. Because I spent the longest on it and put the most effort into it.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
It's the most popular art site around and it's best for publicity I guess.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Probably the creationists trying to argue with me on my paleo pieces.
