Interview with :iconfrankatt:FrankAtt





Sky Capital by FrankAtt


Have you ever studied Art or are you self taught?

I am self taught. With tutorials and learning by doing.


What appealed to you the most about being an artist?

To create worlds/scenes I have in my mind, so I can show them to others.

Lake Side by FrankAtt

What is the inspiration for your works?

A lot of things. But usually just sketching around till I find something I really like.


What influenced you to draw fantasy/sci-fi (?) works?

Movies. Especially "Star Wars" and "Lord of the Rings".


Docks Of Valura by FrankAtt

I noticed in your gallery you focus a lot on creating landscapes. What do you enjoy about painting landscapes the most?

I really like to create paintings which gives a sense of scale. I like the feeling of be a little viewer who looks at a giant environment (e.g. mountains)


What would you consider the fundamentals of creating your landscapes?

Big shapes and atmosphere perspective.


The Sleepy Giant by FrankAtt


What is the process you go through when starting a piece of work till it's final state?

I start with big shapes and try not to get to early into the details.
When I like the overall feeling of my painting, I work on that part I don't like the most.
I do this from big parts till the little details in the end.


What artists on dA inspire you the most and why?

tyleredlinart.deviantart.com/
noahbradley.deviantart.com/
flaviobolla.deviantart.com/
and a lot more.
I really enjoy their work (ideas and techniques), because it's what I try to achieve with my paintings.


Next Trading Point by FrankAtt

Is there any advice you could give to learning artists?

Just paint and have fun! Every painting/sketch/study makes you better!
Sometimes it's hard, but don't give up! =) (Smile)



ctrlpaint.com is your best friend, if you struggling with fundamentals/techniques or if you are a beginner.
I learned a lot of this site (there are even some new things for me from time to time) and Matt Kohr is doing a awesome job with this site and with his tutorials.

So two things
1) Are we okay to submit pieces with the link to a video tutorial of the piece in the description?
and 
2) I may have accidentally submitted the same thing twice, sorry if I did >.>

Hello, and happy new year.

I've decided to make this year a year of improvement for me, and it seems that my luck would have me do just that. I'm happy to have found this group, and I hope I'm able to assist as much as I might get assisted.

A suggestion to your links though on "Other Sites You Might Enjoy"

The website Manga Masters has a paintchat which some people may prefer to iScribble since it is pen pressure compatible if you have the JTablet plugin.

The url: www.mangamasters.com/paintchat…

I've sent a request to join this group, even with some doubts and some people saying I shouldn't because my drawings honestly could never in a million years add up to any of the drawings in the folders... I really need to stop comparing myself and my art to other people, but I feel like I can't get any help with my drawings or any of my art because I'm just to bad at it (Take a look at my profile and you can tell)!!
