A Collective of all the best art works from our gallery, as voted by members and admins of Australian-Deviants.
So despite being relatively quiet, the admins of this page are still alive. Shock horror! And not only that, but we were quietly organising amongst ourselves the possibility of some devmeets, beginning with a Melbourne Devmeet for those in the wonderfully sunny state of Victoria.

Currently thinking of a timeframe in the next week or so, we would love for as many people as possible to come, so make sure to clarify which dates you're free.

In terms of activities, we had in mind the masterpieces exhibit at NGV or the recent dreamworks animation exhibit at ACMI, but we'll try to keep costs at a minimum to accommodate everyone.

If everyone prefers to use facebook as a means of organising this, I'm happy to make an invite only event and paste the link here - but that's up to you guys.

tl;dr devmeet in melb in next week or so, give us dates ur free on.

PEACE
Sorry there hasn't been any updates, but I'm writing this journal to official announce that the Travellign Artbook has been lost :(
It was already on it's way to Melbourne, our last state. It is a strange situation, last person who sent it off apparently wrote the wrong postcode to the next address, causing confusin in the shipment. If this is true then I am disappointed with the mailing service because it is easy to find the right address with just an incorrect postcode. So the book has been lost for over 7 weeks while coloursupply did her best to track it down by contacting the service centre. Until one day she was told that it was 'impossible' to track it down.
So yeah... we lost it. We were nearly there too! XD

Sorry for the people in Melbourne who didn't get a chance to participate! For the others who did, hopefully you guys saved a copy, scanned it in somewhere. Please feel free to upload your submissions for the rest of the group to see :D

News rearding to the group in general; I'm not sure what else to do to keep this group active and running again. Both Miwa and I have things that have popped up. Would anyone like to volunteer to become a member of the admin staff? We need a motivated team XD

We have plenty of QLD artists, some of which live in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Hey if this is a club for Aussie artists, can anyone tell me how/where/what I study to get better because I am at a loss. A Bachelor of Visual Arts? Anything? My issue is I am uninspired by unit descriptions, electives and even teacher/lecturer work. I also can't even find student examples.

Hi Mikadel, are you looking to just improve art skills in general, or is there a certain type of art (eg. digital vs traditional, portraits vs landscapes, colouring vs lineart, etc) you are interested in?

As EvilFurrySkull mentioned in their comment, all are available options in improving, though my favourite dose of learning and inspiration comes from artists on facebook and online tutorials. As a start, check out the Level Up group on youtube and facebook. The artists there are also all really supportive, and have a tonne of advice and knowledge to share. www.youtube.com/user/levelupse…

Pros of study at uni/tafe are that you are given a structure to follow in terms of learning, and you're surrounded by likeminded others. That said, if you are highly motivated, strive to put in the hours to practice, and have access to resources (free or paid online tutorials, reference books), being self-taught and improving from it is definitely possible.

I've looked at some tutorials online and on youtube. Watching someone else paint and talk about it hasn't been a good experience. I try to copy the brushes they use, but it never looks the same. 

I want to learn and work on human bodies, perspectives, lighting, landscaping, backgrounds, pretty much everything. I want to be able to draw anything. I also want something official if I decided to spend so much money on training.

Online courses exist but I really don't think they will be enjoyable. I cannot stand watching videos of someone else explaining something, It feels one sided and disconnected, then trying to communicate through comments is more challenging then in person.

There are many options available for artists to better their craft, formal and informal. The formal is of course, taking classes. This can take place at a Tafe/University, an institute of art or it can all be done online. Then there's informal learning, which is simply learning outside of a classroom. This can range from self taught, seeking tutorials online or attending work shops.

If you have a local art supplies store you should have a chat with the staff. They'll most likely be able to tell you of local workshops to help you out. If you wish to seek out formal learning but don't wish to go through a university degree, then I suggest trying out a TAFE class. They're shorter and the teachers are a lot more flexible when it comes to their students. 

I hope this helps.

My issue is while I could spend heaps of money on any local art classes, I want something more to show for it, its why I thought a Bachelor of Visual Art would be perfect, but sometimes it doesn't seem the case.

It should just be in the blue 'Contribute' banner at the top of the page. I'll send you an invite anyway.
