One of the challenging things about being an artist is finding a way to fund your projects. While some don’t have to do this, the vast majority will have to at some time or another.
Among the fairly new and often most successful methods is crowdfunding. And of one the more artist-friendly options is Kickstarter.
A case in point here is a talented artist I have had the pleasure of working with in the past. That person is Justin Martin who recently launched a campaign for his latest posing guide Poses For Artists Vol. 5 which is the new collection for the series that you can see at www.posemuse.com
So, if you are either looking for a great posing book, or a method to get your own work seen, you might want to think about doing some crowdfunding.
If you have a friend or family member who is an artist and are looking for the perfect present for them this Christmas and holiday season, you might be having a tough time. After all, it can be hard buying for creative-minded individuals. But, I have found something that may just be exactly what you need.
If the artist you know uses people as subjects or is planning to try to start to do this, some sort of posing resource can be ideal. That’s where the books (available in both print and electronic formats) at Posemuse will do the job and more. With everything from sitting positions to poses for fight scenes, the site has a complete series of guides that can help in nearly any scenario.
If you read this blog often, you have surely come across several of my posts talking about the importance of posing your model as a photographer or artist. But, perhaps it is also important to factor in the value of posing skills and technique from the model’s perspective.
While any artist or photographer can benefit from a posing guide, models can benefit just as much from such publications. This is especially true when it comes to either a new model or a model working with a new artist.
A great series of guides is the one by author Justin R Matrin on the website www.posemuse.com. You can get his work on Amazon also.
While the works tend to focus on drawing, they can easily be applied to any type of art and I suggest you check them out if you are on either side of the camera or canvas.
