3D Animation

3D animation deals with electronically produced computer-generated 3D imagery used in motion graphics and digital special effects. In this case, the animator creates a design style or concept that tries to visually interpret and convey the required information using both new and traditional animation techniques.

The 3D animator will have to be well-acquainted with 3D animation applications and software, film and video production techniques, production processes, digital special effects, art and design movements and methodology, typography, styles of performance and dramatization, film and broadcast genres, technical scripting, health and safety regulations for the film and broadcast industry, and an understanding of budgeting and scheduling processes.

The job of the 3D animator is to design and realize original concepts, character and content creation. The animator, therefore, is responsible for devising and communicating creative ideas and accurate technical information. They have to provide the client with detailed estimates of costs, and work within the budget and schedule.

Each assignment will have different demands. So it is imperative that the animator should have a good knowledge and experience of animation software and broadcast processes, as well as a broad knowledge of technical scripting and digital technology used in broadcasting. The designer must be able to respond with innovative concepts and practical solutions for each assignment. The assignments may be of any kind, from designing a spinning top to re-creating mythical weapons.

To succeed in 3D animation, one must have a thorough understanding of computer-generated processes and applications to be able to achieve creative responses to design briefs within the restrictions of budget and deadline. He/she will be required to possess a passion for design, good communication skills and a good understanding of broadcast, special effects and character animation. Last but not least, he or she must enjoy working as a team member under pressure.

In addition to being able to demonstrate high standards of computer-generated imagery and animation techniques you will need to have a good knowledge of art and design movements and imagery, creative problem solving and innovation, and the understanding of how to deliver design concepts and processes.

 

Why Do People Buy Paintings?

This article is about painting, and the sort of impact it has on society. We also go into why painting and art doesn’t have to be perfect to be considered a piece of art, take a look if you want to learn a little about art.

The big question is, why do people buy paintings? Is it just to feel like they’ve bought something, to fill up the wall so it’s not covered in white, or because they were love and appreciate art, especially a work of art.

Now, for a lot of people, a painting is simply a filler, to cover up that white stuff on the wall, so that when someone comes in the house they don’t complain about being blinded by all the white, or so they don’t say your house is too “plain”, you know how it is.

Other times, people just buy to feel good about themselves. They’re cruising around a world market place and see a photo, they have a little bit of extra money to spend, and next thing you know, there goes money down the drain.

But, what about those art galleries where paintings sell for thousands of dollars, why would anyone pay so much? Painting is a form of art, some people are born with that gift, to paint.

Some people see a painting as a painting, others see it as a masterpiece, and to those people, paying good money for a work of art is completely acceptable. On top of that, artists often spend their life struggling to sell their artwork.

They do it for the passion, the love of art, not for the money. But it is a great plus when you score big on a piece of art that you created all by yourself, that no one in this world can exactly replicate.

Everyone has their own style, whether it is far out, or very similar to others, no one artist is exactly the same. That means, that there is no bad artist. Your letters might not be readable, but that’s okay, because its a form of art. That’s the beauty of it.

You don’t have to be perfect when it comes to art. For example, beach oil paintings are never perfect. Oils travel in places that aren’t desired, but that’s what makes it even more of an art, not the exact play-by-play booklet on how to draw a beach.

Same with village paintings, you see a lot of village paintings that the little houses roofs aren’t even attached right, but that’s okay, because it’s art.

These paintings are two great of examples of why you don’t have to be perfect, simply due to the fact that even if your roof’s aren’t attached, or a beach-goer’s leg drifted off into the sand by a curious oil spill.

Great paintings are born from mistakes, imperfections. A painting in a room can make all the difference as to how you feel in the room, if its a dark room, with a dark painting, it might make you feel depressed, or not as happy.

On the other hand, a bright and colorful painting, whether is be beach oil paintings or village paintings, those can give good vibes, ones that put you in a better mood because you can see the light.

The little things, the small details are the things that make all the difference when it comes to paintings. Its not about the perfect lines and the exact shading, its about the creativity and originality put into it.

Along with that, the effort. You can tell a painting that is effortless, and one that took effort. But even more so, heart. Heart is something that shines through paintings. You can see someones passion for what they do with the little details, and you can see a lack of passion.

Art is so deep, that it is sometimes impossible to grasp. We may not understand it forever, or we may realize a few years down the road what something meant, or sometimes it might come to us instantly. Art that has passion carries a message, whether it is known or not, the message is there, it is for us to uncover that message.

You Must Be An Artist

“…Meet this solemn question with a strong, simple ‘I must,’ then build your life in accordance with this necessity; your whole life, even into its humblest and most indifferent hour, must become a sign and witness to this impulse.” – Rilke

We are, all of us, meant to create. We are creat-ures, thus it is evident in the world around us that as a spider spins a web, a bird builds a nest, humans are possessed of a spiritual and biological mandate to spin and build a world of beauty and function. The human distinction is the ability to make symbols. Symbolism is the art of investing the world around us with meaning by expressing the invisible or intangible through visible or sensuous representation. This is the simplest, the least unsettling definition of art and creativity. From this definition, we have come to believe and to thoroughly accept without question that art belongs to those who paint the paintings, write the words, and mold the clay, into those representations of the intangible and the invisible. Art has therefore been divided into those who do and those who don’t.

The reinstatement of art into every one of our lives, both in our ability to receive and to recreate it, is to return to living with meaning. Creativity is, like evolution, like all growth and change, an irrepressible force in nature. Thus far, only humans have attempted to turn away from this call, and a case can be made that it is this turning away that is the cause of so much of our pain, suffering, and longing. This suffering, however, is the result of confusion and misdirection, not hapless circumstance.

Art, like science, philosophy, and civility, is our best defense against the insupportable weight of all that we don’t know. If we could disperse the weight among us citizen artists, come up with a more inclusive outlook, we could lighten the formidable load of ignorance. In the broadest sense, art is a response in whatever form it takes–an expression of the love and beauty and terror as it is given to us through the visible bounty of Nature—that pulls us further out of the mire. Creativity is anything that fosters that indwelling spirit, any creation or activity that advances the progression of the unimpedable energy of growth that is life. The replication of that love and beauty, the balm that soothes the terror, or the release provided by the recognition of that terror, is our task, is the way of art and creativity, a whole-some response to existence.

Whether you are a fireman, a pathologist, a babysitter, or a banker, you must be an artist. Must be means, first of all, the recognition of this as your identity, as in, “Oh, you must be an artist…” Secondly, must be makes it imperative. You must respond to the dignity evolving out of creaturehood toward a greater man, toward God, and remain fearless as well as awe-struck by the vast implications. In the meeting of this challenge, you will be recognized by a light in the eye of those you encounter, as extraordinary.

The commitment to creativity, like any other commitment, will become an integral, necessary, part of our life once we realize that not only does our art spring from and define the core of, yes, our own identities, but more importantly, that it is an expression of that which is greater than ourselves. Thus who we are becomes linked with the world, and it is given meaning and purpose by what we do with this link. Creativity is the purveyor of meaning.

We begin with a sense that there is something within us that must act and express. We begin by going beyond the sadness we have experienced at having this something repressed, discouraged, buried. We begin with the thin person with the fat body, the sober, healthy being underneath the addict’s skin, the lover inside our neglected hearts. We begin with the hope and the longing of the creative force within ourselves.
