I don't need to make a cow-dung Madonna, I do need to get over my fear of making something that someone won't like.

I want to move on and grow and get better, but I feel like I'm at the foot of Everest. Help me not hate my art. How can I find the courage to make the art that I need to make in order to feel fulfilled and honest in my work? [more inside]

Please help identify this painting

This is a screencap from an episode of the "Ray Bradbury Theater" series from the 1980's. I tried using the Google Goggles app on my phone, both with the picture on my TV and on my computer monitor, but it can't scan it all the way. When it does come close, it can identify it as some sort of iconography, but that's it. Does anybody have any idea who the artist might be, or the title of the painting itself? [more inside]

What was this megamix album?

I can't for the life of me remember the name of a particular megamix/mashup album/artist. I remember that the first track sounded like it started with the helicopter sound from the beginning of one of the 'Another Brick..' tracks from Pink Floyd's 'The Wall', then it either sampled 'Little Fluffy Clouds' or used sampled the same interview. Closer to the end of the album 'Your Song' was mixed in. Any ideas? I believe the artist also had an album featuring mostly Flaming Lips mixes. Both were available free on his website.

Particular web article on how to make people think you're an artist

I'm trying to locate a web article article I saw a few years ago. It was about things a person could do to make people believe he/she was a "real" artist. I think I remember it saying that a lot of the success in the art world depends on what people think of the artist him/herself, and that the more that people saw a person as "an artist", the better the chances of getting paid (or getting paid more) for their art, and being a professional artist. (Or maybe it didn't say that and I just thought it after reading the article.) [more inside]

Hiring custom artist for a card game?

I'm designing a card game and I have most of my own art for prototyping, but eventually want *real* art. I have no place where to look for such a thing or how much it would cost. Does anyone have any ideas on what sort of going rate such a thing would cost? Do you pay by the hour? Any tips are greatly appreciated.

I love this artist! If only I knew who it was...

Artist trivia time! I love this painting! Does anyone know who the artist is? It's a painting with a sculpture of similarly-shaped heads next to it...but I just saw it randomly online and haven't the first clue of who it might be. Has anyone seen anything like it before?

Name that 20th century European artist

I'm trying to think of the name of a male, Eastern-European artist that made paintings of dark, unsettling landscapes. I remember being linked to a very basic webpage of his work, and I wish I could remember more details about his work. As for time period, maybe 20's-70's. Again, sorry for the lack of details. I want to say he was not well-known and did the landscapes in the 40's or 50's.

I need to be a better illustrator!

Help me become a better (comic book style) artist so I can illustrate my own scripts. I need to become better at sketching, primarily. The human figure mainly, but also backgrounds and layouts. I don't have $$ for an extensive course, so I'm looking primarily for books and online tutorials. (I also need to find artists to illustrate scripts I don't have time to do myself, if anyone's interested.) Thanks.
