We should try to live a life which is more purposeful and inspiring
A life wherein we believe more in giving than taking
A life which is more liberating if we’re endowed with skills for listening, forgiving
life which is bereft of any vanity
A life full of empathy
A life which gives us opportunity to improve and is not a tragic past replay
A life which gives us protection from the treachery of our sworn enemies
A life which prompts us to forget and forgive our adversaries
A life in which we seize every good opportunity
A life the key of which remains solidly with us only
A life in which we can restore our lost credibility
A life bereft of any hype and publicity.
life in which we stick to our principles

In this Blog Anime’ or Manga, I research what exactly is Anime’ and Manga and where or who found or made this Art Form? Thinking about how to create or make this art form, and why in particular this art form is highly important to a particular Culture in the world, and Why? Wondering if this art form, affects other Cultures or Not, and why and how? I think you can agree, this is a very interesting topic to read about. I will also, show you my first attempt, at this art form of Anime’ and Manga.
The begging’s of Anime’ or Manga?–The term Manga was created by the Artist Hokusai, a prolific artist who lived from 1760-1849, who left over 30,000 works. His new term for his artwork was made up of the words ‘Man’ meaning ‘in spite of oneself’, lax or whimsical, and ‘ga’ , meaning ‘picture’ . The first examples of Manga, were picture scrolls created in the 6 – 7th Century created by the Buddhist Monks. In the 17th Century, Woodblock prints were popular, these depicted the Age Pleasures, such as outfits and popular places to visit. In the late 18th Century, Kibyoushi, or ‘yellow covers’ were popular. These were stories of Adults, with Dialogue and text, placed around illustrations. When Japan opened to the outside world, the European artists, introduced Shading, perspective and anatomy, to the Comics. At the end of the 19th Century, Comic strips appeared, in the Japanese newspapers, and comics, became very popular. During the late 1920s and early 1930s, the Japanese governments, intimidated Artists and publishers. Many Magazines, closed down, or started censoring themselves.
After World War II, the Cartoons flourished. The first weekly magazine devoted to comics was Shounen Magazine, which was the start of the comics, in 1959. By the Mid–1960s the Manga industry started setting up, Comics, in its present form. Magazines were made for all the Social classes of people, in Society. In 1956, Toei Animation was founded, its president Hiroshi Okawa, thought about creating its version of the Japanese film Studio, similar to Walt Disney… It was, Tezuka Osamu, who founded his Animation company, which focused on creating Movies and Series for the T.V. His Tetsuwan Atomu, became the first Animated Series, for Japanese television. In the Article, ( by Liana Sharer ).
What is Anime’?– Anime’ is a term used for Japanese Animation. Anime’ covers the serious topics, for the Cartoon. In America, cartoons are Entertainment for children. In Japan people of all Ages, watch Anime’. Most Movies and shows are made for, Children, adolescents, or the young adult. There are also Anime’, made for Older people, and for Business Men. There are many Genres in Anime‘, the Basic categories, are in, Comedy, romance, action, drama, and pornography. Their is also content, for Boys and for girls.
The Art of Anime’– The art work is the deciding factor in Anime’. Huge Eyes, Brightly coloured Hair, Well-endowed female characters. Exaggerated Emotional expressions and gestures, are all typical of the Anime’ Style. The Early Anime’ Artists were influenced by early Disney characters, the Seven Dwarves, Micky mouse, and the Non Disney, Betty Boop.
The Following two Paintings, are my First Attempt drawing, An Anime’ and Manga Girls. I would like to tell You that I use the Creatives Acid free, Watercolour paper, because I find the paper is compatible with my Art Creations.

Culture in Anime’–Understanding the Culture of origin is important, whether it is in Japanese, Anime’ or Manga, or in the American sitcoms ( comedies ). You have noticed? That, Characters and situations, are Totally different in each culture. Anime’ as an Art form, Expresses many things about Japanese Culture, and its people. These are in the Behaviours, of Characters, and in the Influence of religion. These are the Two main Cultural discussions, which are Investigated, and debated, in Anime’.
The Formats of Anime’–Anime’ have original stories. Whereas other stories, and characters are taken and used from the Japanese comic books,– ( Manga ). There are many Anime’ Societies on the world wide web, if you are interested, in Anime’ or Manga, you could find a society, near your living location. From the Anime–project, ( anime.about.com ).

Thank you for visiting my Blog, Have an Amazing safe Week, See you all Next BLOG. If you have any Questions or Areas you would like me to research, please be in touch and let me know. I am creationsbymariec.art Artpaperdesignsmarie.etsy.com Artpaperdesignsmarie.shopify.com
In introducing this Blog Topic, on Different Approaches to Drawing. I research into what is Drawing, and investigate how to Draw, and find out if there is an easier way to draw and create Unique Art. And see, if there are any other ways to draw. I also wonder when Art Started and Why, why is Art, So great or Not so great, let us see?…
Different approaches to drawing–What is drawing? Drawing is a form of Visual art, in which the person uses different drawing Media, to mark the paper, or another Two-dimensional medium. A drawing media, releases a small amount of material onto the surface, leaving a visible mark. The most common support for drawing on, is paper. Other materials can be used, cardboard, wood, plastic, leather, canvas, and board. A wide availability of drawing media, make drawing one of the most common Artistic activities.
Drawing is used in Commercial illustration, animation, architecture, engineering and technical drawing.
Drawing as Artistic Expression–Drawing is generally used to express a person’s creativity, which has been prominent in the Art world, throughout History. Drawing, has been regarded as the foundation for an artistic practice. In the 14th Century the wider availability of paper, made Art popular. Drawings were used as a great tool, in thought processes, and in investigation. Drawings acted as a Study medium, while Artist’s were preparing, their final Presentation, of work.
The Renaissance, Drawing techniques, enabled Artists, to represent things, realistically, and Drawings also revealed, the Artist’s interests in Geometry and Philosophy. (The above information, in Wikipedia free, encyclopedia).
Artist’s Network, says that drawing should be enjoyable and that sketching, should be a vehicle of speed, and immediate action. Most people think drawing, uses One Method, the Linear method, that is drawing, from the top of the page, to end of the page. This method of drawing, is a difficult approach to use. In reality, there are many ways to draw, the differences in drawing, give the individual Artist, their Signature Style and Technique creation. If you practice the Different drawing techniques, you eventually find what is comfortable, for you. Which is what then gives to your art work, a Unique expression of an Art Style and Technique.
The Maquette, or Shape- based Drawing technique, is the easiest way to learn to draw, most things. By reducing Complex forms, to simple shapes. This form of drawing, is referred to by other names, such as Construction, Anime’ or Manga. This is the Exact Technique used by most Animators. The first step with Maquette drawing, is to reduce the Proportions and Shapes to a series, of Rectangular and Circles.
The following Art Creations of Tinkerbell, are made in the Maquette drawing Style. I have used circles, rectangles and smaller shapes, to Fashion these drawings. This Style of drawing, is my Unique Style of Drawing. Very easy to Learn and to Teach yourself, and draw with. I initially used, a 2B, Eco Black Pencil, and then outlined the drawings, in a Sharpie, Fine Black Marker. I used textured, Creatives, Acid free, Watercolour Paper, because I find it is, best Suited and a pleasure, to work in my Style of Art Creating.
To colour the Maquette Style, drawings in, I have used the Colourful Crayola, Crayons, which were Smooth, speedy, and easy to use. I have placed these paintings, of Tinker Bell, in my Etsy Shop.
The ideas for my paintings, I find in Free Photo Stock on the Internet. Of course I draw them all, in my Art Style and Technique. I use Mixed media, colourful mediums, to colour my Art Creations. I use either Creatives, Textured Watercolour paper, or The Creatives, Canvas Paper, which also has an amazing, Texture to work on… I enjoy doing Art and I like to Share, what I Art Create.
Tinker Bell. Mixed Media. By Marie. Crimi. 2019.
Art: Drawing Approaches and training–(in Concept art.org)–The ‘Concept art’, was used in the 1930’s by Walt Disney, Animation. A Concept Artist is an individual who creates Visual design for an item, character, or for an area, which does not exist. This is not limited to, film, animation, and recently added to video game production. Being a Concept Artist takes a Big commitment, vision and a clear understanding of this important position. Concept art has taken the Digital technology, and popular programs for the Concept artist, are Photoshop and Corel painter. Others include, Manga Studio, Procreate and Art rage, programs. Concept art ranges through Stylized to photorealistic, Art spectrum. Concept Artists need to adapt to the Style of the Studio, they are employed by. The abilities of the Artist, to produce Multiple styles, is valued highly by the Artist’s Employer.
Tinker Bell. Mixed Media. By Marie. Crimi. 2019.
Developing different Approaches to Drawing Art–Gesture and Beginning Approaches, (in Utdallas.edu ) –The mark that records the movement of the Artist’s media, is a Two dimensional movement in space, which is the most basic feature of drawing. In addition to this is spatial notation, in which drawing arouses a time response – which is the time required, to make the movement, that creates the Mark. Time is also involved in Seeing and in Scanning objects in space. So Movement and time are two of the most essential features in making and looking at a drawing. Handmade quality is highly valued, one-of-a-kind, drawings are called, A Facture. It is the term used for the time and effort, that you put into making a Creative product. It includes the media, and all the creative tools that made the original marks. For example, the Cross hatched line, the scribble, the faint trailling line, the boldly stated, ripping mark-all are signs of A Facture.
Gesture Drawing–There is a physicality of motion in drawing that is not always visually evident in other Art forms, the result of this process, Communicates an Emotional and intellectual reality to the Art Creation. Gestural drawing is an exercise in the seeing the form. The hand duplicates the motion of the eyes, making the movement, that instantly defines, the general characteristics of A subject: in the Placement, of shape, proportion, and relationship between the parts, and the definition of its, Area, volumes, as well as their arrangement in Space and time.
Perspective Drawing–Learn to draw by putting things in Perspective. In the Art world Perspective, is about your point of view, and the Relationship of Objects to one another.
Linear Perspective Terms–Visual depth is expressed through Linear, and atmospheric perspective, as well as through the use of colour. With Linear perspective, depth is achieved through lines, and the Size and the placement of Objects. The Horizon-height will affect the placement of the Vanishing points, as well as the scene, at eye level. The Vanishing point, is the place where Parallel lines appear, to meet together, in the distance. A scene can have a limitless number of Vanishing points.
The Ground Plane–Is the Horizontal surface, below the horizon. The Orthogonal lines, are lines which are Directed to a vanishing point. The Vantage point-not to be confused with the Vanishing point. The Vantage point, is affected by the Placement of the horizon and the Vanishing points.
Pencil Drawing Techniques: Pro-tips to Sharpen your skills–For many Artists, Pencil drawing is the skill that introduced them into the Art world. Understanding how to draw with a pencil, can help you Improve your skill in other areas, of your life. The first step, is to master how to hold a pencil correctly.
The next Drawing Technique is– Line weight, which Outlines different objects. Lines also emphasise, the shadows of an object. Thicker lines can fade and disappear, which can give the 3D form in a painting. As an Artist you need to find the Style, that is right for You. Find the Right paper texture, it makes a big difference, in the effect, it gives to your work. A Rough tooth in paper, is most visible and the ridges will grip the colour, from your pencils. A Smooth toothed paper, provides an easier surface for, Blending colour pencils. Remember use the Right eraser, it makes a big difference to your work. Protect your paper as you work on the Art piece, by putting a Piece of paper under your hand, to avoid smudging the lines you are drawing, when working on your Art creations. Lastly but not least, Break Out of Your Comfort Zone. The Pencil drawing techniques, help you understand the essentials of the medium, but you need to explore by Breaking the rules, and find out what works for You, as an Artist. Remember that Individuality gives YOU, your Signature style and Techniques. This Leads you to make, Genius Art Creations, and Hopefully earns you Good Money for Your Efforts.
In Conclusion, I would like to say that, I think that we can all be Art Creative, especially using the Maquette, Shape-based drawing style, we have no excuse, to not attempt Art creating. We know there is value in doing Art, because we have seen how it can help us navigate, our way in all other, Life situations. Art Creating is a Help and a Blessing to the very young, and to all other ages.

In this Blog, Ways to Be More Creative and My Art Creations Too… , We decide if there are ways to be More Creative, by examining what three Articles on this Subject Say, and Think. I include, Websites and U-Tube Channels, that, you can watch in your own time, and which give and present their version, of the Ways to be More Creative. I have made Two paintings, for this Blog, to show you the Way, I am Art Creative, that is by using totally different Media, the Crayons and the Oil Pastels. The Acrylic Paint for the Primer, on the paintings, are the Mont Marte–Matt Colour., which is exactly the same colour, used on both the painting, back grounds.
The Author and illustrator Danny Gregory says that no matter how busy a person is, he, she needs to include, creating Art. The more creative you are, the Happier, and Saner you will be. He continues to say making art, is not about having the talent or the skill, to make the art. Making art is about being innovative and creative. You will need to give yourself the opportunity to make art, and you need to have a place in which to be Art creative. At other times you will need to carry a Sketch book with you, everywhere you go, and make the effort to use the sketch book. Use the Texts margins for Shopping lists, Driving directions, Phone numbers, Ideas and Thoughts. In this way, you make your day show you things, that will automatically make you Feel creative and Motivated, to Create Art. Working this way, makes you realise that there is beauty in everything you see and do.
If you are time Challenged--A page filled with lots of Random drawings by you , looks preety amazing, at the end of your day. You divide, a sketchbook into a dozen squares, and then take two minutes a day, to draw anything you see in one, of these squares. In a Short week or two, you will have an Infectious and beautiful page filled with Memorable drawings. This will boost your Motivation to keep, doing and lead you to drawing and doing more Art.
Make a Bad drawing--Or at least do not fear them. Acknowledge the drawings when they do not work out, as you envisioned. Do not rip them up or throw them out, or worse Write terrible comments on them. No, you need to keep them in a Special place and later on, when you go back and look, you will see in them the Beauty and truth you ignored back then. The Artist Danny Gregory, says that being Creative can happen to you at any time, so draw before you wake up, or as you wake up. Make this Method the first thing you do in the morning, and see what the results are?. One idea is to Capture, a Pet Personality, because your pets are a living, breathing Models, who spend the day just striking poses and just waiting there, for you to draw them.
Make It A Groundhog Kind of Day--By taking notice of something you see each morning, that you, keep walking past. Then spend five minutes drawings it, and next morning draw it again, do this for a week. Filling pages in your journal, you will discover more and more each time, and each days observation, will be Reflecting your current, state of mind.
Creative Exercises and Practices that will help you find Joy and Productivity--Some Non Artists, think that creativity begins at the Easel, no it can begin anywhere, anyway, its all individual. A lot of the artistic break throughs occur, when you are no where, near paint or paint brush. You are a natural Creative engine, you will get flickers of New ideas or Solutions, to problems when you least expect to. Remember To be a Creative engine, you will need, recharging sometimes. In Creative strength training, (https://www.artistnetwork.com/store/creative-strength-training?), you will find a way to start, and to keep going on your Creative journey, whether you are feeeling Rusty, or you are looking for Ideas, or if you are seeking ways, to think or see in a new way, which is what Creativity is all about.
Lets Be Together. Oil Pastels. By Marie Crimi, 2019.
This painting was sourced from Free photos website, and Hand made in my Style and Technique. I used the Same, Mont Marte- Matt Colours, for the paintings, Background.
I used, The Oil Pastels, and Sharpie Marker to Complete this painting.
Non-Dominant Time–Spend 15 minutes Sketching, painting, drawing or mark-making with your Non dominant hand. Using this Non dominant hand makes you focus, and will allow you to see Shapes and forms in new ways. You will not take anything for granted, you will understand how, the Layers and textures are combined. Do give yourself, Space to work, twice as big, as you usually would, if you used your Dominant hand. Embrace this opportunity to see Happy occurrences, and be ready to See something remarkable.
Do Not Watch the Clock--The number one enemy of Creativity is too much stress. Feeling the pressure to do, or make something good. Immerse yourself into your creativity completely, during the time you have to devote to the creative process.
Scavenger Hunt--In the Book, Creative Strength Training, The Scavenger hunt approach, is where you get an idea, and it stays, to gain Momentum. Within these Boundaries, Free association allows the author, to investigate a topic. You write a word, at the top of a page of paper. You set the timer, at two minutes, and then you write down, whatever words come to mind. Just write. This list making, produces a wealth of Raw material, Words which are visual images, with the potential to take this content to a new level.

The idea for this Painting was sourced from Free photos webiste. I Hand made this painting using, Crayons and then Completed ,the painting in Sharpie Marker. The Background of the painting, is the Same colour by Mont Marte–Matt Colour, as in the above Painting done, in The Oil Pastels.

Learning a Master’s Drawing Secrets, texture, colour…Genius:–
When you think about it, the art world is built on copying. Unlike plagiarism, copying Master drawings, is what most Artists do and have done for centuries.
Why?–because it is an excellent way to study and evaluate incredible artwork. During the 16 – 17th Centuries, this Art Method to copy other Artists, was very popular.
Copying–allows Artists to demonstrate their individual ability to draw, render, and give homage to Genius Artists–(Art Masters), all of the above recognition… and this Method, helps to keep the Old Art Masters, work, alive into the distant future.
Copying works–in fact, all the great Art Works, are available to you, to observe and to discover the techniques used. You work at your own individual pace, this process improves on your skills as an Artist…
To Copy like An Artist?–you must remember and follow these four steps–
- Make a copy of the drawing in the style you like.
- Copy a drawing style you like, because it is up to you to give the image a lot of your attention, so that you progress well in the Art Style, of your choice.
- You will need to create a good quality image to work from. You could work in an Art Gallery, Museum, look in Exhibition Catalogues, or you could find a Poster size reproduction of the work for good tones, and clear detail and renderings.
- You could Tone your paper in the style of the Old Masters, who never used pure white paper. So apply a little neutral colour, or apply a wash over the paper,to give a little colour.
Copying for the Love of Art?–copying Master drawings is enjoyable and rewarding, it rewards you with improvements in your drawing skills...
