Have you ever wanted to use your own stock, but didn't know how?
Have you ever felt resentment about excessive conditions that dictate use of stock and resources?
Has someone ever told that your art is just a derivative of the author's photographs, letting you know that you are a hobbyist or a second-rate artist?
You know the situation: You ask for authorization for commercial use, and they said, for my little mushrooms far afield in the background of your picture will be worth 10 percent of the total sales?
"Does it take a lot of time?" You ask. "Is not it easier to quickly find the resource?"
Answer - sometimes it happens quickly, sometimes not. But, how much time do you take to find the right position of the object or the right prospects for the background? And how much time you spend, if you find it, to change the light circuits of the found item, which is often completely opposite to your scene.
At first you will create improvised simple objects, gradually mastering the increasingly complex objects and backgrounds. We will try to create vegetation: grass, flowers, mushrooms, trees; fauna (real and fantasy animals), objects, architecture, and natural backgrounds.
The work of our group will be based on the principle of the game: Each week we will publish an example of creating an object - and you will create the same object, but from the tools you already have, training the imagination. The most interesting result gets a prize. At the same time, you'll get exercise for the imagination.
The Featured gallery will present the work from 100% personal photos. The "Half Personal" folder will feature art with at least half (50%) of the resources taken from personal photos. Once you are able to create a work of at least 50% from personal photos, you can add them to the Gallery folder. All other work can be added to our Favorites folder.
