The Fine Art of Making Timeless Resolutions. by Daina Lynn. December 29, 2017. No Comments.

Share it: Much like Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” (because I prefer that over being called a nerd), I always have my nose stuck in a book. Recently, my nose led me to some statistics about New Year’s resolutions and let’s just say, I was not. A collection of timeless art classics. See more ideas about Art, Painting, Artist.

“Timeless” is a magical, award winning work of fine art, worthy of a place in the art museums, libraries and private collections of the world. The thousands of hours spent in the making shine through, not only in the amazing and profoundly original pictures, but also in. Apr 2, 2020 because all art is timeless. See more ideas about Art, Artwork, Painting.

Lesson No. 3 Modernize with Art “We believe that using modern and contemporary art is what makes any interior feel rooted in today, no matter the time period of the furnishings,” says Lauren, who used a vivid photograph of a house in Cuba and a color-rich Josef Albers print to balance the room’s vintage side tables, antique finds, and traditional furnishings. Smooth, neutral-white, matte paper for high-quality fine art, photo reproduction, and open-edition decor.

It supports accurate color reproduction and high-contrast, high-resolution output, and is acid-free for a longer print life with pigment inks. We can print any custom size, see custom size pricing _ Luster Semi-matte Photo and Art paper. Agelessness and timelessness can refer to a classical style of art that will never go out of fashion, in that it does not utilize any wonky trends that will only be popular for a short and specific period of time. Remember big hair and leg warmers.

The size and resolution of an image affects both its appearance on your computer screen and its print quality. Resolution Resolution refers to the amount of visual detail contained in an image. The resolution of output devices (printers) is measured in dots per inch (dpi), and in the case of halftones, lines per inch (lpi). Plus, certificates of authenticity can actually make artworks easier to sell, especially in auction or gallery settings.

Serious art collectors will require any work they purchase to include a certificate of authenticity in order to prove provenance should they choose to sell the work on or donate it in the future. Featured Artwork: “Hanalei by Twilight” by Susie Anderson. Fine art two-dimensional digital scanning provides a high-resolution, tightly controlled color management workflow that captures every subtle variation, detail, and texture to match your original painting.

While these resolutions are meant to be good and well-intentioned solutions, unfortunately they are built on a flawed foundation of more effort, willpower, and goal setting.

So by all means keep every resolution you make, for you not only profit by the resolution, but it furnishes you with an exercise that causes the brain cells and physiological correlatives to form the habit of adjusting themselves to carry out resolutions.

  • if i had to criticize i would say, this guy sounded real muffled, had to turn the audio way up to understand him clearly at points.

  • Since “pope” Francis can’t see anything wrong with Islam, replace it with a mosque in preparation for when Paris is taken to those that know how to breed. Empowerment of women has been a bad idea since the garden of Eden.

  • wow este vídeo fue revelador se nota lo profesional que es la verdad estaba bloqueado sobre unos personajes que quería hacer pero este ejercicio me encanto ahora mismo lo estoy practicando y salen cosas muy interesantes gracias por su aporte increíble!!

  • well. This just depressed me. I’m a 3d modeler and I get frustrated when there isn’t enough detail. I Make a decision and I always have to go back and fix because I made the wrong design choice. I guess this video shows that I am not very skilled at what I do.

  • Proko, I found your videos two weeks ago while I was looking for videos to help me learn draw. I’m beginning in this Journey, I have doodled around before but never took it seriously, so I wanted to change now. And these two weeks of seeing your first videos of you explaining anatomy and figure drawing, I did my first drawing on my own and I cannot express how better I got just by following your examples. Thank you tons. You truly are the best

    Virtual hugs
    Keep it up!

  • A temporary fix to keep you from having to feel the rough edges and keep the desk in better shape for longer is to go get a large glass panel, even a recycled window, make sure the edges are sanded, and place that over the top. On camera the symbol on the desk looks good, we can only see the mistakes and roughness up close.

  • not sure who you are or what you do, or why yt algorithm thought it would be a good idea to expose me to this video, but since I’ve endured it I feel justified in commenting. your understanding of modern architecture and architecture in general quite superficial and airing it publicly doesn’t do much for your credibility. you’re strawmaning the argument by a poor and lengthy preamble and also rather blatantly by using an anecdotal example of a provincial museum in Alberta to draw conclusions about modern architecture in general about as ludicrous as judging merits of the gothic period by some random shack from 13th century Nowheresville. what you seem to forget is that there are plenty of examples of latter day interventions on historic buildings, such as baroque on romanesque or gothic which we now appreciate, as well as removals of some poor interventions and reverting to the original. what you conveniently omit is that, ironically, gothic style was named after Goths, a barbarous german tribe precisely because it was deemed ugly and monstrous by the contemporaries at the time it was called modern and immodest. speaking of ugly, consider another parisian examplethe Eiffel tower it was thought of as an abomination, a metal specter looming over all of Paris, while now the very same public thinks it’s the bee’s knees.

    yes our culture hyper produces and architecture as a discipline is in crisis, as are all the arts since there isn’t left a single remnant of consensus of any sort about what is beautiful, what is art or what’s it’s purpose. but in historic terms, we tend to keep what is valuable and not keep what is not your alberta musem is proof of this. rest assured, the architectural profession has a more sober acute sense of history and aesthetics than the armchair critics of the day who love today what they would have hated merely were they born a generation or two earlier.

  • man wish somebody told me where to get a model of a skeleton like that 17:48 im from a 3rd world country i cant afford live models but if atleast i can get a skeleton:(

  • Im seeing this more than one time, this process make me a lot of inspiration and i want to merge this knowledge to my pieces, THANK YOU!!

  • My city, Limassol, is being ruined by Russian and Chinese foreign property investors and developers filling the skyline with giant hunks of glass and steel. So far, the only building of that size to be completed as of right now is a giant egg. Meanwhile, the native Greek Cypriot developers build more traditionalist buildings, which are so much better. Thank God the Russians share our faith and don’t desecrate the Churches like Western Europeans, otherwise it would only be a matter of time until Agiou Lazarou in Larnaca, the resting place of St. Lazarus was desecrated too.

  • You core argument for why the restoration effort should not follow modern ideals is fundamentally flawed. It assumes that Notre Dame’s design was not a product of its time. However, the actual facts appear to point in the EXACT OPPOSITE DIRECTION. Many European, and especially Catholic, buildings of that era have the same, or at least similar, design philosophies. Most historians and artist admire Notre Dame based on this exact fact, it is a product of its time and serves as a milestone in the development of western architecture.
    Also, the argument of the museum and the legislature building is wholly unrelated. Museums do and always will change floorplan regularly. This is because different types of exhibits require architectural needs. So, if the museum starts to see more demand for exhibits that it was simply not equipped to handle, it can become too expensive to simply retrofit the old museum. This, of course, doesn’t even account for changing safety regulations (50 years is a fairly long time, even for government).
    Combine these with the fact that newer forms of art are often sneered at for a good long while before being accepted as “high art,” see jazz, and modern architecture may in a few centuries be looked at how we see building like Parliament.

  • Does this guy know he’s being unconsciously influenced by Vampire Hunter-D?:P Even the floating ball and large hammer weapons! Cool design though.

  • This is such a great video, often it can seem like concept art is just creating eye catching designs, but being able to round out those ideas and tell a story adds so much additional value.

  • It todays world by “job requirements” on Artstation in this 23min you should deliver also 3d ready assets, maybe some substance textures, and that’s hammer should be ready to animate:DD of course don’t forget 3 skins variation for each character ��

  • Gothic art was new in its time. All innovations take a chance. Some provide abiding pleasure. But all creation is an attempt. Insist on certainty and creation stops and only copies. N.D. is traditional now but when it was built it was cutting edge. So whatever is done
    a little understanding is not amiss.

  • There is a project to turn not only Notre-Dame but all of the island of l’ile-de-la-cité into a tousistic/luxe center. The presence of the Church and of several administrations in the island is an obstacle to the greed of the multinational groups behind the project.
    The 3 administrations are the hôtel-Dieu hospital (currently on strike), the Palais de Justice (main Paris court of justice) and the Prefecture de police (police headquarters). Police and Justice will obey the orders if asked to move elsewhere. The doctors and the priests are not.
    The priests are gone now. The Church is not the owner of Notre Dame, it’s the state. Priests are only users.
    The doctors are the next target.

    For those who doupt, google “mission ile de la cité”.

  • Dear Proko,
    Thanks for all your contributions. You have so many videos, it’s awesome. I want to draw well soooo bad, but I am a beginner and don’t know where to start. Please tell me where to begin. Thanks again! Keep up the good work.

  • As a Fine Artist, he isn’t that great, just because fine art is probably one of the few art forms that can be judged and arranged in whatever order one deems right.

  • It depends what N’sync song you are talking about. I want you back has aged well. I know that’s far from your point here. I think you hitting on the trendy ness of boy bands at that time then there put them they’re in again. Not so with more timeless works.

  • Not feeling the title man, tattooing tyler is like a milestone already. Its like these titles usually are like a minus to a plus but this is just a plus plus. You feel me?

  • I’m sorry you want to live in a world of cowboys? do you have any idea what cowboys really did? I think you need to be more aware of the culture you’re creating especially from your place of privilege…

  • congratulations hypebeast.. that told me absolutely nothing about nothing.. Go catch this guys real interview on Not Most People if you care to actually find out anything about him lol.

  • You should have a back piece on your desk, you can put your logo on that so it’s more visible to people as they walk in. could also use it to mount things or shelving, would also hide any mess like coffer cups or wires.

  • Devil’s advocate: the Duomo in Florence got a new façade in the 19th century that is still absolutely gorgeous today in my opinion. Changing the look of an old building doesn’t have to be a bad thing if it’s done well.

    That said: soulless, featureless modernist architecture on the Notre Dame would be a crying shame.

  • does anyone know if and when the proko beginner drawing course is coming? I saw a video from 2 years ago, he mentioned he is working on it

  • But actually the Notre dame had throughout its life had seen renovations and redesigns of both interior and exterior in the act of keeping up with the times, and at one point was abandoned due to its perceived outdated ness that lead to the term Gothic architecture, barbaric or old.

  • He went to fine art by tattooing Tyler the Creator. No need to ask how. It’s crazy, the only thing that will give a person a push nowadays is a rub from a celebrity. It’s like how there are a million talented shoemakers and designers, but everyone just wants Kanye West’s stolen garbage designs.

  • “If I have photographic memory and I could draw like a printer…”… it would take you ages just to get basic shape and shading, if you could maintain correct proportions that is, which for human vision are tricky: certain elements shows bigger in your mind than others. Even if I have that gift first thing I want to make stepping into world of drawing is getting rid of it. Become impressive. Quick. Efficient. And yet fun, because I can still “turn on” “printer mode” and be very accurate about small details. Salvador Dali once said: “I would paint way better if I am way less inteligent.” And that is it: do not oversaturate your art, keep proportions, keep illusions, and make something that is readable, not realistic. Because “Reality makes crappy special effects crew.”

  • The Saints will not help to build the Churchs until Tradition is restored back to the holy Church according to blessed Catherine Emmerick. ��

  • I’m not arguing that that a lot of classical design hasn’t stood the test of time; but your premise that “beauty is objective” is faulty.

    There’s a little bit of confirmation bias going on here, and you are only counting the hits.

    In terms of classical architecture it’s probably worth noting that most of it has been destroyed at some point in the past meaning that architecture from that era has a novelty value (using your metric) which is not present in more recent buildings where a lot were built around the same time in a similar style.

    What I’m saying is that not enough time has passed to find out what the “iconic” and timelessly beautiful buildings of the mid-late 20th Century are yet because we’re still tearing down the ones that we don’t want.

    With respect to notre dame. it would be foolish to try to restore it exactly to the way it was, the specific materials and expertise that went into the original are less readily available now so such an attempt would increase the cost many times over. Whilst at the same time having significant drawbacks over more modern materials (such as for example their more flammable nature), then when all is said and done no one will actually appreciate the effort being put into it.

    Even with a one to one recreation the new work will not blend into the old as it will need to age; with any restoration project people bemoan the newer work as they compare it to their memory of the old.

    In fact it is often given as a rule of restoration to make the “story of the building” clear by using different materials anyway.

    Personally, I think that the glass roof idea that you poo-pooed in the video is quite beautiful and ver in keeping with the original shape and style of the building, but that is subjective as ALL thoughts about beauty invariably are.

    lest we forget that each era of buildings has its detractors, the late 18th C. neo classical look that gave the world the white house and Buckingham palace where derided for looking backwards to the romans and claiming a lineage, The Eiffel Tower’s construction was protested because the people of paris didn’t want what they saw as a giant penis ruining their skyline.

    This always happens, but occasionally a design resonates with people and stands the test of time.

    Basically, what I’m saying is that if designers didn’t try new things and just replicated the past wholesale, you wouldn’t love the things that you see as undeniably beautiful, because everything would look the same, and the world wouldn’t get the chance to surprise you.

  • i would love to pick your brain on artistic issues, from music to car design. (I noticed that Buick in the case you have there, at least from what I could see it looks like a 1950 Buick). Most people do not realize how much mathematics is involved in art, from music, to architecture. Now, that math is removed because its too “hard”. My fear is not that we are in a dark age or our culture and civilization, but it is that we are in the end, the decline and extinguishing of our culture and civilization.

  • I actually got the opportunity to go to Notre Dame. It was quite a sight. There was a performance of medieval music that I got to go to. One of the most memorable experiences of my life. It will never have the same acquistics, especially if they do a glass redesign. I am not catholic, but I pray that whatever this new design will be, that it stays true to the original.

  • Modern architects (and modern people in general) fail to recognize something very fundamental about the human heart—that it desires the infinite and cannot be satisfied by finite things. In the past, architects would design structures that appealed to the heart’s desire of the infinite. The objective beauty of their designs pointed to the Infinite God Who our hearts long for. Modern architects design structures that do not point to the infinite, but rather to finite things such as the desire for “newness” or “surprise”. Finite things cannot make us happy and therefore we tear down these buildings (that point to finite things) and expect that if we just try again, or if we just have more of these buildings we’ll get a different result. This reminds me of Bishop Barron’s Catholicism series where he talks about how addiction is when an individual (who was made for the infinite) tries to fill himself up with finite things and when he is unsuccessful, he falsely concludes that he just needs more of those finite things. The answer to our dissatisfaction in not more finite things, but the infinite, which explains why we were never satisfied to begin with. Our culture wrongly believes that we can all just find happiness in our own little ways as if we are the creators of our own meaning and purpose. That is why our culture doesn’t understand when us Catholics (out of love) oppose behaviors that are objectively opposed to true reason and joy because by their very nature, they point merely to finite realities and lead ourselves and others away from lives of love and joy, oriented towards God.

  • you don’t need to be catholic to get that the cathedral should be restored using it’s original gothic design. I stopped being catholic years ago but anyone who isn’t an SJW knows that.

  • They should redo it, one corner an Islamic prayer centre. One corner a Hindi temple. The middle section a Pride celebration and a new spire with a giant screen on top beaming out holocost images.

  • Thank you for another Valuable Podcast. Question. After listening about the book recommendations, I feel like reading and learning from them all. How to manage or organize my self into learning from all this books?

  • If you would have put the apoxy in a vacuum chamber it would have sucked out the bubbles. Even a cheap homemade vacuum chamber works, like a fish tank with a taped-on cardboard top with a hole cut for a vacuum hose taped-on attachment. Mythbusters and comicon artists use stuff like that all the time and have come up with all sorts of cheap hacks and tricks that could be applied in various situations. Othereise, you can buy a vacuum chamber for apoxy.:)

  • As a novice with the guitar, and admitting that 80% of the scope of this discussion was way over my head, this was an amazingly motivational and informative video. Thanks!

  • I think they should have painted the table black first and then add the epoxy.

    Still, im no expert and I know for sure that there would still be a problem (because the “scratchy” thing (idk how is it called in english)would have removed a bit of the paint) ��

  • coooool, I really like how keeping it simple. Adding and adding more simple makes it look very natural and complex. Really cool video. Can’t wait for the next one.

  • About Viollet-Le-Duc, Architect of Notre Dame’s Spire.

    It always makes me wonder why people in their armchairs feel qualified to coach sporting teams, and how people who don’t paint feel qualified to critique art. I enjoy traditional architecture in ways some people can not begin to understand or appreciate. But art is on a continuum. And those proposing new ideas for Notre Dame Paris have certainly studied its milieu, its historical origin and context, its original design, and its proportions and symbolism more than the avid home “you tube” video viewer. So grant this first.
    As for the loss of Notre Dame Paris, it is profound and arguably symbolic. But from a technological, rather than spiritual, perspective, it could have certainly occurred at much * worse * points in history. By the early twenty-first century, the building has been explored and documented by uncountable contractors, engineers, technicians, academics, and students, and the current collective knowledge of the physical plant of Notre Dame is likely unparalleled by any other point in history. What was broken can assuredly be rebuilt. Mr. Macron’s sense of urgency is political, as expediency will not really aid the process. But if his words can raise larger funds faster, then they may not be ill-spoken.

    As for the rebuilding of the spire, this is not a bad idea either. The original was removed in 1786 because winds threatened its collapse. Eugene Viollet-Le-Duc won a design competition (sound familiar?) to design a new spire. Here was a guy who claimed to be an historic preservationist, but always hustled for his own creative aims to be implemented in the old buildings he restored. In your ample free time, read Volume 8 of his “Dictionnaire (etc).” He played fast and loose with original architectural fabric, and his designs would NEVER pass the (U.S.) Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Buildings.

    I have experienced and admired architecture all over the world, but agree that Notre Dame Paris has a specific meaning and is of a specific time, place, and style. The design of the new spire should be wholly Catholic…abundantly French…and triumphantly Gothic. Should it be designed by a French Architect? I’m not sure about that. French architects will certainly be involved, and undoubtedly will be the Architects of Record (responsible for the construction documents and local permitting).

  • I… have an issue with your use of the term “objective beauty”, despite the fact that I understand, and even kind of agree, with your definition of it, at least in the context of architecture. Interesting.

  • Since I’m not a Christian, I don’t place value in the Notre Dame being a place of worship for Catholics, but rather (in adherence to my beliefs) I place importance in the fact that the building was built by Frenchmen throughout many generations, suffered many challenges, was built upon many architectual styles etc.

    A modern architectural addition would only kill that French spirit which had been built upon the fundemental ephemeral nature of the building.

    Also I’ve visited it so I want it to remain the same.

  • Modern art and architecture makes me feel horrible. I think some depression and anxiety is cause by the lack of meaning and transcendent beauty that religion brought us. Even though I don’t believe that god exists as described in religious teachings, I get tremendous value from the ideas and values religion offers. Anyone trying to destroy the meaning and beauty of that is either ignorant or evil.

  • Google Coventry cathedral it is literally a disgusting thing standing in a holy place, the worst architecture masquerading as a cathedral

  • Fascinating take on modern architecture. Comparing it to the phenomenon of quickly regretting pop cultural decisions is a brilliantly simple and accurate perspective. Thank you.

  • I studied restoration of art, specificaly that out of metal. While it’s important to change the work of art as little as possible, it is sometimes inevitable to prevent further degradation. There is always the question of wheter you prefer authenthicity or practicality. You can for example change metal pads that are not visible if they create a galvanic cell and would eat up the orginal metal. If I were to apply this to the Notre Dame, the goal should always be to restore its original look. However, using steel supporting structure is not out of the question if it would lead to better stability and lower risk of catching fire.

  • Even as an atheist, i think that Notre-Dame must be rebuilt with “the worship of god” as main concern, as this is, i think, the real purpose of this building. Don’t let modern artists anywhere near Notre-Dame.

  • you’re propagating stereotypes.. You at your level asked for this information at this point is a cookie cutter BLOCK BUSTER PROCESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Stop doing this because its cheaper to reuse. You are now out of the New Realm of Possibilities.You’re not a concept Artist. You’re just a Means to an end Hack.

  • Idk if I 100% agree or not, since I think a lot of the value of these things is historical rather than how they look. Like even the ugliest building suddenly becomes worth protecting if it’s 1000 years old or something. A lot to be learned from things like that.

    That said, we would certainly value modern buildings more if they looked nice, though I don’t blame them on only caring about functionality. I like going into the city and looking up at the old buildings. They always added a lot of flair, but it is probably a bit more costly that way

  • Fine Art? Why that distinction? And seems more like Street Art to me, is it that its on a canvas? Oh its hypebeast, cause its not sneakers or an appropriated red box logo.

  • Its a shame about the table because it looked beautiful when it was just wood, Stan if you don’t want bubbles in your resin you have to evacuate the air with a vacuum pump.

  • If you plan on redesigning something that was originally kept around for so long for:
    1. its brilliant design
    2. its historical value
    Then you’re essentially getting rid of and painting over the entire point of its existence, and at that point you may as well just design a new thing instead.

  • As a lifelong Catholic, I never got to see Notre Dame, but if it was anything even remotely comparable to the grand cathedrals of Italy (which I did get to see), than it was a tragedy of heavenly proportions.

  • It doesn´t matter if you are a real catholic or atheist, Notre Dame is a legacy of the HUGE effort and love of western people in past times.
    Evil progressives want to destroy it, and every symbol of western beauty. Western society suffer a serious crisis of self esteem and foreign enemies use it to destroy us, too.

  • You have no idea of what contemporary architecture isabout, every age has its vulgar examples.
    Not your fault.
    Its clear that we architects failed in the divulgation of “the state of the art” in our field and its also clear that the architecture universities also fail in making their students overcome the pulse for newness.
    let me add that when talking about not substituting old buildings you put the example of st peter’s basilica.
    It was a controversial building that was one of the most modern of its time and substituted a paleochristian basilica built by emperor constantin.
    far form respectuous to the past.
    In fact the history of architecture is built on disrespectful restorations substitutions and additions,
    Probably any masterpiece you can imagine is an example of this or has some of this examples in it. I dare you to tell me 5 that are not.
    Notre Dame should NOT have a “modern” roof, the problem is that any roof that we build will be modern, it takes time for it to be old. modern doesnt bean glass, these are just examples of paper architecture, every age has had their own, these opportunities are allways stimulant.
    but the roof will surelly be built discreet and respectfull, and modern

  • Notre Dame withstood time. Notre Dame is burned down when Catholic became increasingly corrupt (those in the upper echelons)? I think this is no coincidence.

  • part of me wants to go out and build a house made out of roman concrete with a Greek style down here in Australia witch would cost o bit but would look fuck great i believe

  • Ive wanted to design characters and create stories for video games since i was like 9 so about 7 years now and this is helping alot thank you so much!!

  • A, church which was a small country church loved by the citizens was torn down 11 years ago. It was later said that nothing was wrong with the building. It was the common people’s Catholic Church. There were 2 of them. Saint Mary’s church ( a country church that was the one that was torn down) and Saint Simon’s Church. Saint Simon’s ( the rich people’s church) is still there. Goes to show how modernists don’t care about normal middle and working class citizens. I blame the archbishop who said it needed to be torn down. He said it needed to be torn down because of a statue which fell down.
    He actually said that was the reason. Ever since then, the church has become sort of a poster child for beautiful buildings being needlessly torn down.

  • It depends what N’sync song you are talking about. I want you back has aged well. I know that’s far from your point here. I think you hitting on the trendy ness of boy bands at that time then there put them they’re in again. Not so with more timeless works.

  • Erich, great deal getting Robbie to demo the looper and the insight from both of you was so valuable! Going to keep this video handy for when I get a looper and start experimenting with it. This seems will allow one person to make real music!! Very cool and Thanks to both of you! Steve

  • my earliest books were the story of Robin Hood and Troy. Some were printed in the 1940s or earlier. They had very detailed illustration styles similar to Arthur Rackham or Jessie Willcox Smith. Also the comics in the Sunday papers: Prince Valiant as an example.

  • We will make the West so corrupt it will stink” “Willi Munzenberg” one of the founders of the Frankfurt School. Post Modernism in a nutshell

  • Gothic architecture was considered heterodox to the current standing Romanesque aesthetic in church design, so I wouldn’t be hasty in calling nouveau fashion in architecture wrong. What made Gothic style architecture awesome was the fact that they where pushing the boundreys of what is possible with stone, reaching for a majesty worthy of being called a house of God, and that these were multi generational projects so a half baked idea wouldn’t cut it, no something ornate that truly exemplifies the house of God is necessary for a project on such a scale. That’s what makes gothic churches beautiful. If you where to take these sensibilities and apply them with modern construction materials I’m sure that it to would show a majesty worthy to be called the house of God, sadly it seems such reverence is not the focus in more modern designs as there is not a focus on pushing engineering to its breaking point to construct a beauty that will last 1000 years, but instead a focus on finishing this commission so that I can get my payday and move onto the next project.

  • Some of these tropes though, and constant surveillance of Artstation for ideas though is why a lot of art might look generally the same, conceptually, these days.
    This guy seems very stuck on Star Wars. As much as it might be OK to rely on something popular for an idea, he needs to grow his ideas and vary them.

  • Proko when you are pouring the epoxy, if you use a torch with a flame at about 12″ away from the epoxy, will cause the bubbles to pop. Carbon monoxide causes the bubbles to burst. Do this after you have it poured.

  • Comparing Gothic style architecture with modernist architecture is like comparing the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg, Russia with Soviet Era tenements. One is gorgeous and timeless while the other is hideous, forgettable, and depressing. This is what happens when you put utility before beauty.

  • “Do you want to see it?”

    The stammer that followed leads me to believe the answer you wanted to give contained an expletive. Heh.

    Fantastic video, thanks.

  • Erich, this is great! I have 2 of Robbie’s DVDs he is a wonderful teacher. This topic is especially great for me I have had a BOSS looper pedal sitting on my desk for a couple of years and have not used it due to the frustration Robbie talks about. This may be the game changer for me. Thanks!!!

  • I always look forward to your podcast! Can’t wait to check out some of these books… By the way Lee’s mic volume is way softer than Jake’s and Will’s, not sure if that can be adjusted in the future. Just figured I’d mention it!

  • This is fantastic. The looper pedal was the first thing I got because I want to do this very thing. So. Cool. I’m also a brand new fan of Robbie Calvo! Thanks for bringing Robbie in, Erich. And thanks Robbie for such fantastic musical help. I just spent the last hour riffing over a A7 vamp and only stopped because my fingers hurt like hell now.

  • Bid for the modern masterpiece “Handy”, the first accidental work of art from the new studio

  • LOL your opening about the pandemic no, it’s not over May 19th marks my 64th day alone in isolation. But hey I’m getting A LOT done in my studio. Great book chat. Beatrix Potter was my original inspiration, followed by Chirs Van Alsburg, James Gurney, Maurice Sendak, Graeme Base, Shaun Tan, Jan Brett… and so many others. The War of Art, Turning Pro, Do the Work, Art&Fear, Steal Like An Artist, and The View from The Studio Door are all staples on my bookshelf and I highly recommend them to anyone planning on working as a creator. Because my studio is self-funded I stay away from the whole “business of” stuff. I create what I feel most passionate about and if it sells, great if not, I’m on to the next thing.

  • Awesome Live Video…. I had to catch this later and actually took notes… looking forward to the recorded lesson. This all has been extremely helpful for me and I am sure for many others! Thank you much Erich! You always amaze me with new pizzazz!:)

  • Erich I truly from the bottom of my heart mean this u r an EXCELLENT PERSON. I just filled out my form for being a veteran and I am beside myself to know what kind of heart you have and I am very grateful for this opportunity, so generous and kind THANK YOU for all you do for your students and you deserve very enormous praise for your generosity. THANK YOU AGAIN DAVE W.

  • Y’know, it’s positively obscene to have a 32″ Cintiq and NOT be a digital painter/artist. So get with it, my boy! You’re certainly young enough to add that set of skills to your impressive toolbox.

  • To give modernists a fair shake, I think there’s more to it than mere novelty. The simple, sleek form-follows-function design is meant to represent the efficiency that science provides. To leading physicists, the idea of a simple equation is beautiful. And this is a great thing in many ways.

    The problem is that meaning works like poetry, not an instruction manual.

  • An architect and/or an interior designer would have given you fantastic results! our responsability is making the best possible space for everyone, no matter who they are, what they do, how they live! You did a good job Mr Stan! thanks for letting us have a look at your studio.

  • I don’t mind you guys do a little corona debriefing. It could help make sense of everything for a lot of people. Curious why you guys don’t address it.

  • I don’t mind modern architecture but dont you dare put that on Notre Dame. The church was extremely beautiful before the fire and i want it to stay like that

  • You do not need different wood for the Palette table! Just screw 2 slats diagonally connecting the back and side posts and it is fixed.

  • Notre Dame in South Bend is one of the ugliest collage campuses I have ever seen i was shocked to visit one time and see Muslims on prayer rug

  • Sounds like you are describing socialism. Might sound like a good idea if you have no experience or knowledge or the ability to just read. Several years later you may still be illiterate but you might have the experience to say WTF was I thinking!?!?!

  • If you need more sound treatment, canvas paintings with high density foam packed in the back works pretty decent without having big ugly panels hanging around

  • Brian, I enjoy your conversion stories. You have a genuine heart for Christ. Please research Traditional Catholicism and complete your conversion to the True Faith. Vatican 2 ushered in a false “catholic” faith and is leading many astray. The Apocalypse of St.John spells out this fact. The “whore of Babylon” clearly describes Vatican2 and the false church. Chapter 18 [4] And I heard another voice from heaven, saying: Go out from her, my people; that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues. [5] For her sins have reached unto heaven, and the Lord hath remembered her iniquities. Traditional Catholics have done so; that is have “gone out from her” yet have preserved the True Faith.

  • Hi Stan. Great studio. I think you can improve your palette cart by installing additional diagonal bars to make truss structure. It’ll be way less wobbly.

  • Dear Stan and the rest of your team,
    Congrats on the new studio. I wish to thank you for you endless videos. I appreciate your tutorials for concise, informative and just the right amount of humor to keep thing from getting dry. Great guest artist makes Proko complete. It all makes learning a great experience.
    Best Regards

  • I’m in the line between 3D modeling or concept art / illustrator, don’t know in which invest my time the more. Both kinds of art are super appealing to me, I guess I’ve to try both, and then I’ll see what to choose, does someone has a good advice?

  • Honored to have my music on this piece. He’s worked with so many artists I look up to. Find more of my music here >🙂

  • lol 2:32 why did you choose the german anthem for the introduction of your area of peace and quiet? love your videos and your podcast

  • Hi Stan �� I was hoping to see some fun video’s of you and Aaron Blaise like you guys did last year at CTN.

    But I now see this video of your wonderful art studio or better said headquarters �� it looks great and congratulations! For sure a wish for many years to own and dreams come true.

    Also a big inspiration for others to see and also for me, but actually in a different way because I went the exact opposite way. From having a studio to simply get out into the open world with a sketchbook.

    Funny how life can lead to different paths to follow but yet have the same intentions: pursueing art the best way we all can come up with.

    So seeing your video is wonderful with your super tips to give anyone but sitting at a bench somewhere outside sketching a city skyline is also not too bad either.

    Good luck with your upcoming art adventures. For sure you have created the best environment to do so ����

  • proko…God give you back all the hope you have given to us, in your tutorials video.. from the bottom of my heart to you and your beautiful wife and son… and in the name of we, the people that follows you: have a blessed season greatings and the next year be full of good and desireble things!!! we all love you! behave yourself and be good!

  • I love your vids, Stan! You’re such a fun guy and I’m happy for you! You look like you have a lot of fun making and planning videos, art, and everything that you do. It amazes me! More power to you!

  • Well, my studio consists of a  donated table, a donated office chair and a donated floor lamp, with a row of empty soup cans for my pencils. But otherwise, it’s exactly like this.

  • You should have gotten some silicone and formed a mold of your hand and then poured the epoxy in to the mold. Really nice setup by the way. You’ve inspired me to fix up my own space.

  • Notre Dame is an amazing work of art and changing it would be like drawing glasses and a mustache on the Mona Lisa or adding 808s to the Minecraft music

  • Not to sound elitist or anything (I know it’s going to sound like it), but, Stan… get rid of that fantasy sword on your peg board.
    And get yourself a proper sword!

  • Dear Stan! Based on the amount of botchedfuckery demonstrated during the epoxy and glove scene, I hereby award you the title of honorary Hungarian. We know and appreciate the art of “gányolás” and that attempt was a worthy specimen.

  • Congratulations, Stan. I am very happy you realized this dream. You worked hard for it!
    I would suggest, if it has not been suggested already, for your pallet table stand, you add some diagonal cross-bracing to the legs, either wood or metal rods, so the table with glass in top is not so rickety for you. Happy creatings!

  • I love your Chanel. I have been through a lot of spine surgery and I can’t wait until I heal enough to take drawing classes from you.
    Pallet tip
    I have a tip for you get a MANICURE Table, the perfect size adding a glass top makes a great pallet. Make sure it’s on wheels. Look for a beauty supply shop or get your stylist to order you one. I assume you must have a great stylist as your hair always looks great.

  • for your palette desk, you could add some horizontal bracing between the legs about mid way down, that should fix the wobble, without need to build entire new desk.

  • This’ll help with my own work flow. Never occurs for me to write my ideas down. I just go. Could help me land a few clients later down the road.

  • Full and complete restoration must surely be the only possible option. Anything else would be truly sacrilegious. Buildings like this are the result of generations of hard work and true devotion. They were given to us by our forefathers for safe keeping and we are meant to pass them on to coming generations. We should show gratitude and humility, not vanity and hubris.

  • Who is to say what is absurd? I can have my perspective and you can have yours. I accept yours but retain my own, they can both be truth at the same time.

    I believe you touched on the true cause as I see it and your key word in here to me was “pretentious”. I believe that explains a lot in the world and that we do ourselves a disservice. I believed for the longest time that my opinion held greater weight than others and became lazy in my mind which manifested as refusal to accept opposing opinions instead of accepting them and considering. I was lying to myself and once I saw it in myself I saw it everywhere else. Some is necessary, telling myself absolute truth is painful and exhausting so I can’t do it for long. To tell it to others unfiltered is irresponsible, many have already found a good balance. I can only offer my perspective but those always need to be met halfway. Taking the easy way out isn’t just physical to me and I think influencing attitudes is a better approach. I don’t want or need to change your mind, I only try to give a gentle nudge to attitudes.

    I do not judge, I am better than no one and wish you kind regards. I think I have gotten this comment right in a way acceptable to myself. I am still coming to terms with my new self, your thoughtful video helped me.

  • 27:03 What a waste of resources. Did you ever thing where that trash is going to end up and what impact it will cause on the environment. No wonder west is the biggest polluter in the world
