The new Gallery of Art is now online.
Feast your eyes... it's been a long project in the making, but I think it takes artofgregmartin.com one giant leap forward. Next up is my portfolio, but if I'm sticking to the schedule the gallery had expect THAT one to be finished in about two years.
A LOT of people are emailing me asking two important questions, so I'm answering them here.
Q1) Are you going to make your old wallpapers available again?
A: No. They're all OVER the place online in various forms, if you want the old ones you'll need to find them on your own. I will be releasing just about every piece you see on my site CURRENTLY in a newly-designed wallpaper form, with a new one each month (now in wide-format too, for those who've been asking forever and waiting very patiently).
Q2: What happened to the tutorials? Are they coming back?
A: No. I have no future plans to re-incorporate the tutorials in question into my
site. I don't find them to be a truly effective method of teaching those
who want to grow as artists. The tutorials are hosted online in a number of
other places (none that I know off the top of my head though) so a little
looking will probably turn them up. I am not planning on proliferating them
any further myself.
To truly teach you must explain not just HOW, but WHY. And since this is art, the HOW needs to come from the artist because everyone does things differently in a manner that makes the most sense to them. Read my article if you want to learn about space.
I don't mean to be a hardass, but I do feel quite strongly about this. It's not for me, after all... it's for the people who want to learn.
