Top Three – Week #33 & 34

Every week, I want to share links to things on the internet that are either interesting, worth reading or just simply inspirational. Here are both this week and last week’s Top Three, because I was a bit too lazy to write a complete post of cool stuff last week…

Transformationa timelapse video by Sebastian Sletten Eide
I don’t know a lot about timelapse photography, but I know that it looks cool. This four-minute long video is the work of a young man from Bergen, Norway, and is the result of a project he kept working with for two years. With 90.000 frames shot in total, and utilizing just about 5.000 of those, his video is a wonderful work of art. You can also find Sebastian Sletten Eide on Twitter and on Instagram.

Little Wolfan artist’s blog by Maryanna Hoggatt
Stumbled across this illustration blog through a WordPress.com newsletter, and I must say that it’s really interesting! Detailed photos, process posts and altogether fun to read. I think it’s also safe to say that this girl has got some skills with watercolors. Plus, the style is unique and attractive, not to mention truly different from my own style. Perhaps I could learn a thing or three from reading this blog?

Doctor Cata webcomic about a cat who is also a doctor by Sarah Sobole
It doesn’t need any more explaining than that. Everyone should read Doctor Cat. That’s just the way it is.

Top Three – Week #32

Hi there! With this ongoing “Top Three” blogposts, I want to share links to things on the internet that are either interesting, worth reading or just simply inspirational.

Vlogumentary trailerby ApprenticeA Productions
ApprenticeA, a Canadian video production company lead by Corey Vidal, has been working on this documentary about YouTubers for approximately half a year. I’ve been following the process on their daily vlog ApprenticeEh, and the amount of work they’ve done is amazing. I think that the upcoming documentary will capture the essence of what YouTube is, and what it means to make a career as a YouTube video creator.

The trailer premiered at VidCon 2013, which was held at the Anaheim Convention Center in California, from August 1st to August 3rd. The executive producer of the movie is Shay Carl, who is also a very prolific and popular YouTuber.

Broodhollowby Kris Straub
Often funny, sometimes scary and always brilliant. This is a very nice horror webcomic by long time webcartoonist Kris Straub. My written words don’t do the brilliant storytelling and very crisp and clean artwork justice, so I’ll just recommend that you read it and see for yourself. Kris Straub has also created a hugely succesful Kickstarter to help get the first book printed and published.

Art Supplies: Everything I Use & Why – YouTube video by Mark Crilley
A very nice video about the art supplies that artist and comic creator Mark Crilley use. Very nicely presented and thorough, this video is a must-watch if you’re an art supplies geek like me. To speak the truth, I already knew about most of the drawing tools he usually use, but that might just be because I’ve watched a lot of Mark Crilley’s How to-videos (however, before now I didn’t know how his box of portable watercolors was magnificently splotched with layers upon layers of old paint).

Top Three – Week #31

Blob

I want to share links to things on the internet that are either interesting, worth reading or just simply inspirational. This week’s Top Three post is a bit tumblr-heavy, which is funny because I don’t have a tumblr (yet!). This will make me sound like an internet dinosaur, but I’m trying to avoid getting a tumblr account… I predict that it would only make my attention span even shorter.

Pixosprout – tumblr by cocefi
The animated pixel art and pixel art tutorials are the things that really got my attention on this tumblr. Be sure to check out the FAQ-section for more tips and tricks from Malaysian artist Chern Fai – also known as ‘cocefi’.

Battle Dogwebcomic by Andrew Duff and Matt Cummings
A newly started webcomic which is superbly written by Andrew Duff and beautifully drawn by Matt Cummings. The first updates might just be the punniest things you’ve read in a while, and it was this that resulted in me becoming a fan at panel number 4. Updates every Tuesday and Thursday. The guys behind this are also on Twitter, with the usernames @EiffelArt and @PrintsAndrew.

Electramusic video by Andrew Huang
Although this has nothing to do with comics and drawing (although Andrew Huang once used 30 sharpies to draw his own album art), this music video is one of my favorites this week. Humorous, professionally made and very fun to watch. Not to mention that the music is also great in itself. It is available to download for free if you “pay” with a Tweet or Facebook update!
