San Francisco filmmaker Michael Jacobs spent a year following and documenting the Christian-based film company WYSIWYG Filmworks as it embarked on this mission of God to make a big-budget, Hollywood-level movie armed with not much more than faith in the Lord. I asked Michael a few questions about the film, the experience and what he was up to next.
I contacted Sam to inquire about his relationship with N’Lytn Design. “I thought it would be impossible to ever find a way to get my artwork produced on clothing then I learned about N’Lytn Design, a tee shirt printing company which uses the most advanced textile printing on the market. N’Lytn Designs Direct to Garment technology can print on any garment and match exactly what you see on the computer monitor. Brightness is a huge component in my artwork and their DTG printer captures that integral part perfectly. Since August of 2012 I have sold over 300 shirts, the new and returning customers are a testament to N’Lytn Design’s unsurpassed quality,” he explained.
JW: Some of my initial influences in the fantasy/science fiction genres were Michael Whelan, Keith Parkinson, and Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie. Matte painters Michael Pangrazio and Chris Evans were also influential. I didn’t get into Frazetta until later. I’ve since discovered many more artists in the genre who are just amazing. I’m discovering new artists all the time, in fact. There is a lot of great inspiration and competition out there! And the last few years have found me studying the Old Masters more and more. Some favorites are Rubens, Rembrandt, Titian, Velasquez, and from later on in art history- the nineteenth century- Waterhouse, Bouguereau, and the Hudson River School landscape artists.
Often moving points is insufficient when we wish to alter a path. The user must add or delete certain points. To achieve this select the pen plus and the pen minus to add and delete points were required. For speed and ease of use the digital artist can achieve this automatically by selecting ‘Auto Add / Delete’ button in the pen options bar. Clicking on a point free area on the path will add a point, clicking on an existing point will remove it.
Creativity Key No7: Believe in your creative abilities. If deep down you don’t actually consider yourself creative at all, and that you “just got lucky” with a couple of projects, then this belief will put a straightjacket on all you create.
I have produced as much as 7 articles in one day without sacrificing the quality of my work. You may be able to write as much as 10 a day on topics you’re very familiar with , if you put in a long day . You’ll need at least a half hour to an hour to produce a quality article . Some articles , such as digital painting and drawing, will take longer due to the complex art work involved . Remember , a smash -bang article can pay off in the long run , so don’t rue the time it took you to produce it .
It’s always nice to see someone’s dream come true; it’s even better when others can be a part of it and be rewarded for their support. Kudos to everyone who helped.
I first came across it when I was working as a consultant studying consumer trends in the United States back in 2007. The idea of anybody being able to sell their handmade crafts online with a relatively small start up cost was really intriguing and appealing to me. Over the years I found myself constantly going back to Etsy to browse and check out items and draw inspiration for my work.
