Stunning. Love it!
is working on this antler chandelier lady, and it looks really cool. "Will add some color and add it to my collection of chandelier characters concepts I started." A whole bunch of chandelier characters? We're in.
A lovely FlipBook illustration from Twitter user ハル (@hal61821523
). We love seeing subtle animation, and this one is a real winner. Totally cool.

Some lovely designs from @soleo.design
for the #weeklydesignchallenge
, which posts a new challenge every Thursday. Love that Halloween themed Jason Myers knife company design, but we love the color on those goggles even more. Looking sharp.
We've all seen it. That YouTube DMCA takedown face, which indicates that some piece of content may violate someone's copyright. On the SketchBook Blog this week we're asking the question, "Who Owns Fan Art?" How can you tell if fan art you create is on the up and up? Is any fan art legally defendable? Some IP holders — surprisingly among them Disney — even quietly bless some kinds of fan-generated content. It can be hard to know how to think about copyright when it comes to fan art, but we give it a pretty good shot. Read all about it at sketchbook.com/blog.

that's "reconstructing memories of the past from the Iron Age." He's an archaeologist digging up all kinds of things, so it's not surprising that his art follows the same trajectory. We dig it. ⛏
On the blog this weekend we have our absolute favorite artist and writer on all things where art meets perception @monikazagrobelna
tackling the Pros and Cons of Digital Art. She breaks down what's good and bad about both digital and traditional art. Lots of people have strong opinions about what's "real" and "not real" when it comes to art. Of course, nobody's right — but there is one that's right for you.
