The website contains pictures and photos of professional digital artists. I scan homepages of digital artists all over the world for interesting artworks and publish the best ones on the site.
Also, I developed web applications with HTML5 features support – Slideshow Player and Desktop Wallpaper Tool that I think could be useful to you.
The most work over the website is completed. I’ve made two web applications: Slideshow Player and Desktop Wallpaper Tool.
Now I’m selecting professional artworks to the digital art gallery of the website. At this time there’re over 1000 artworks already selected.
There are thousands of various digital art galleries, forums and communities all over Internet that unite art and design related people together. Such sites publish artworks of both newbie digital artists and famous digital art “monsters”.
Often artworks of the beginner artists prevail, and to see professional artworks only one needs to filter out newbies’ artworks first. And it may take a while since from my experience approx 90-95% of all artworks are newbie’s artworks (and the percent of beginners among photographers approaches 95-99%).
Each such site covers only a part of digital artists. And digital artists in their turn only publish a part of their works at each digital art gallery. Not to mention the language barrier that makes it difficult to see artworks of artists from foreign countries.
I needed a website that could present all professional digital artists from all over the world. I wanted to have a way to present all their new and old artworks together in one place. I didn’t manage to find such site, so I created Digital Art Gallery Online – the site you’re browsing now.
This is a simple web application with HTML5 features support that allows you to quickly create a desktop wallpaper of any image. If the screen resolution doesn’t match with the resolution of an image, that image is automatically cropped to your screen resolution.
Visual art drew the human sight at all times. Perhaps, this is because picture art and photo art help a man to see the surrounding world in a new way. An artist with his works makes us to see the world completely different, not the way we are used to. May be this is why we like to attain art exhibitions and galleries. What could be better than pleasure your eyes with beautiful images, unordinary landscapes, non-typical approaches in pictures and photos of our favorite artists?
Our digital age gave creative people the unique possibility to put their ideas into a graphic form with the help of computer programs; it gave them infinite experimental possibilities as well. No wonder digital art has started to develop rapidly. Thousands of artists decided to give it a try and to test their strength in that field. At the same time, alongside with digital art, the very first digital art galleries have started to appear on the Web, offering us the possibility to admire pictures and photos of favorite authors as well as to see the work of young artists.
I recommend using Google Chrome browser to view digital art galleries. It has demonstrated the best results while displaying pictures and photos in high resolutions, up to Full HD (1920x1080). It significantly passes ahead all other competitors.
No problem, if you don’t want to use Google Chrome for some reason. Slideshow Player works at any other modern browser including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera and others. However, if you use an outdated browser (for example, Internet Explorer 6), you might experience some errors during the playback, or slideshow player interface glitches.
If you’re using Internet Explorer 6 or 7, you can install the Google Chrome Frame plugin and thus get the modern Google Chrome browser right inside your old one. Conveniently, the Google Chrome engine activates only if a page requires its capabilities, for all other pages the old browser engine is used. Therefore, you will keep the backward compatibility of web pages with your old browser.
I introduce Digital Art Masters: Volume 5, which is a great collection of useful tutorials as well as high-class art. However, if you were lucky enough to read earlier volumes, you already know what to expect from this 288-page book. And the book won't fail your expectations.
There are mainly 5 categories of art here: Sci-Fi, Scene, Fantasy, Character and Cartoon. You will encounter both 2D and 3D art representing a whole lot of different genres. You will find just anything you need in this book. All the galleries and examples of art in this book are really high-quality. Thy are very beautiful and detailed. It is hard to imagine how much time was spent to create some of the artworks.
Along with the great illustrations the book also provides authors' comments about the drawings. The artists talk about their techniques and describe the process of how they work. So you have a great chance to learn from them. The book offers you a great deal of tips and hints ranging from scene composition to portrait drawing. I highly recommend Volume 5 to all those engaged in 3D modeling, digital painting and to all those, who love arts.
Not just a gallery: The book provides authors' comments and descriptions to all the illustrations allowing you to learn their techniques. A Source of inspiration for animators: The book presents more 50 artists and 900 color images created by them. The book includes five video tutorials (2 1/2 hours). Each artist will concentrate on one of their images explaining his work from start to finish. So you have a wonderful chance to learn from the greatest digital artists in the world.
Concept Art is the fourth book in the d'artiste Digital Artists Master Class series, which in fact is a look at the process of creating art in tutorial style. The book features George Hull, Andrew Jones, Nicolas Bouvier and Viktor Antonov who present a total of 12 tutorials.
Each artist has written a biography for this book. In their biographies they speak about their beginnings, education, life, inspiration and art. The tutorials in the book are very well captioned to explain ideas, style and execution issues. Each tutorial shows the work in progress.
The tutorials section is followed by the inveted artist gallery, where the 4 artists discuss some of their favourite paintings created by other authors. The gallery is truly amazing. Saying that there's a lot of talented people in the art industry won't be a mistake.
This book might seem a little too expensive (like all Ballistic books). But keep in mind that chances to find such tutorials on the internet are next to nothing. So I'd say it's pretty worth the money.
