Journal Entry: Mon Feb 10, 2014, 4:53 PM



my husband showed me this just a minute ago,
 and i just HAD to share.

art advice by Fukari 
THIS!!
 
THIS IS THE TRUTH!

if you want to create an interesting picture, give your character a soul, put him or her into the surroundings, and see the situation that comes out of it.

That's something I've heard from most of my favorite authors...They screw up everything for their characters, just to see how they will get out again ;)

I always get a little sceptic when someone claims a truth, sorry :(

It may just be me biting too much into the wording detail :P

Having said that i can however definetly understand this concept and it seems like a really great one!

Works for all kind of settings. When I do composings I always try to tell a little story. That way it is way more interesting.
Even when I am writing or doing a new rpg charakter for p&p rpg's I write at least one little scene with them, while I create the charakters. Gives them a lot more depth and then the rest is coming somehow on its own. :)

I've heard another artist say this too. He made a video explaining how to make your art better without actually improving your skills. Simply add story. He showed an example and he was absolutely right. Because humans love good stories, he said. Stories have always been part of our lives. The give more value and depth to an image. Thanks for reminding me ;)
