Hi Guys,

After 2 and a half years of absence I am coming back to Deviantart. I really missed being part of this wonderful big community. Support from other deviants, energy that comes with feedbacks, comments, notes is just priceless. It works like fuel for an artist.  Thanks for being awesome!

In coming weeks I will be making up for lost time and will be posting new artworks every few days.

Hello DA! "Alo, Salut" following the old sond Dragostea Din Tei:) I loved that one!

I am slowly getting to 50000 pageviews! I know people here have so much more, millions of them, but it doesn't make me less proud. It is amazing number, one I worked hard to get to it, my first big round one. I feel it's coming, unless people stop visiting my page;) My journal entry could be much longer, because I have much things to share but let's keep it simple and short.

Person who will show me the screenshot of the closest number equal or beyond 50000 will get a free painting. Easy right?:) You pick up the theme and concept - it may even depict yourself as fantasy character. It is all up to you. And don't worry, I am not afraid of cute girls with wings and nice asses... OF course not!, who is?:D Deviantart comments, faves really are valuable to me. My progress relies on you and I would like to give something back for all these years. It is still not enough though.

Thank you to everybody who care about my artwork!

Mateusz

Hello there!

It had been a while... Vacations are over, my final year (5th) of Master of Architecture at University of Technology in Poznan has started... so we're back to normal, shit. I'd like to share some discoveries on painting and thinking about painting. Maybe I will be able to implement it in my future works. The problem was pretty simple - I didn't want to create loose sketches or spontaneous paintings anymore. I wanted to create something serious, deep and with message. I had my 5 minutes with Andrew Jones - 5 minutes of utter inspiring shower on my artistic soul. It was in June in Berlin. He said: "if the purpose of your artwork is to be seen by one million people what do you want to say to them?" It was like a thunder into my brain... But it raised more questions and thinking.

It took me 2 months to discover that this question is not really a good starting point for me to look for motivation. Although it is very true. Following this idea you should ask yourself all the time "is this worth starting anyway?" The answer is in 95% NO! I was trapped in a loop of creating and denying the best message for one million people. As artists we are obliged to get inspired by things around us. To create a message based on our experience - the more experience the richer the message. I don't want to change the world with my ideas, I want to inspire someone at best. So the message doesn't come from thinking about what to say first, but from our own internal emtional world. It is about sharing visions and ideas. This is a kind of statement that will probably change in future, but for now it makes art much more enjoyable when it doesn't overload itself with heavy burden of saviour of the world. Creating is based on personal emotions, ideas and fertile moment - not necessarily best option possible.

Aaah yes... "BEST"... your personal BEST. What happens when you try to create your best piece in your life? That was the beginning of 2 month 'nostalgic' mood. When I was given two months of (more less) free time I wanted to spend it well. I wanted it so much that I just overstressed myself with ambition of revolutionary artwork. The art is about enojoyment of the process and result, without some heavy philosophy. I could easily go on. Thank you for reading this, I needed to write it down to clean some mess in my brain. Soon there will be new works, stay tuned:)

NVArt Competition

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 2, 2010, 6:22 AM



Hi guys,

I have a few cases to mention as I have been very busy recently and I wasn't able to touch anything not-studies related. Architecture is extremely time-consuming and to be honest, non of my projects is fully finished. Explorations, ideas search, concept designs... all it took 2 months of my life, but I learned a lot too:) I am pretty happy of my results and everything shows that it is very close to end, so I am back to DA and back to painting and drawing. I have many ideas for my vacations, but 2 or 3 months (depends of internship) od free time seems a little too short to be reasonable time to learn anything well.

I think my biggest goal ATM is to learn traditional painting. What is your opinion on that? Is that worth setting as main goal for the next weeks? I have heard it helps, but I am very eager to know what you think.

Second thing is I am taking part in NVArt Competition - "in style of Syd Mead".
I can't post the image outside the CGSociety forums, so I would like to ask to check out the link and leave a comment there. forums.cgsociety.org/showthrea… If you enjoy the artwork please post the comment under the image for others to see:) I greatly appreciate your effort! Just let me know what you think so I could improve myself in future images. Sometimes giving critiques is very helpful itself as it forces you to focus on pros and cons. I think I learned a lot on trying to find proper advice for an aritst.

Thanks for reading!!!

Frank Frazetta passed away today. I cannot find any proper words to describe this loss. His art will stay alive forever.

New Tablet

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 20, 2010, 3:02 PM



Ok, short news this time. I bought one week ago a new wacom tablet. I always dreamed of ration between screen and tablet working area to be 1 to 1. My a4 was too small for that, but enough to paint everything without bothering about that ratio problem. But now I have intuos3 a3 and is HUUUGE. Today I received it. And here is the cool part. I paid for the new one 260 euro on ebay (came from France)! Funny money for that toy! Basing on my personal taste this is the best buy possible in tablets world. So now painting/drawing is just a pure pleasure, I already gained a lot more patience due to better precision.

I bet you don't find that news as interesting as I do:P

Tragedy

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 10, 2010, 6:45 AM



You probably know what happened today morning. Huge tragedy of plane crash with representats of Polish government. I am out of words to describe how unreal it is and how unprobable it was... It makes me think how fragile life is and we should really find our own way to enjoy it. Anything can happen. RIP VIPs

also

Do you remember I asked for your votes for some contest? Results are published and guess what, I got first prize:) So I would like to thank everybody for their support. Thank you! Here is the link: psdmag.org/pl/article/11038-wy… I am already enjoying my new second screen, so my workstation is looking quite professional right now.

Yes, bad news and good news, to balance each other.

Thanks again,
Mateusz

Request for everybody

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 17, 2010, 4:47 PM



Hello my friends,

Today I have a little request for you all. I am taking part in illustration contest where the audience decides who will belong to the group judged by professionals (it doesn't mean winning of course). That's why I need your little help, which means a lot. It is a great favor for me and it will take only a few seconds (no registration required).

Please visit the link: psdmag.org/pl/gallery/521-medy… and vote 5 stars below the image. It will be a great favor for me!

Thank you for your support!

Mateusz

Life plays tricks to us sometimes. It's unbelievable feeling to come to DA as everyday and see 1000 messages - first thought - damn, spamming machines are getting better, second - error?, third - let's hit print screen, fourth - ok, I click that to see what's going on. I was shocked when I realised it's true! After many years of browsing DA i actually became globally noticed for one day! The Daily Deviation was awarded to my loose sketch of harrier - which is not a harrier in fact, but my interpretation of it, who would guess?! Actually I'm out of words...
