I just noticed, today is the 10 year anniversary of this Deviantart account.  How disturbing and weird.  If only I would have taken art seriously for all of those 10 years, but then I would be a completely different person.  I haven't changed as much as most... but at least I'm not the same angsty teenager I was when I made this account.  The younger me would have expected me to be married with kids and a mortgage by now.  The current me expects that to be the case in the next 10 years.  Hopefully future me doesn't mess that one up.  At least I will count on my future self to be twice as good at art as I currently am... but let's aim for at least three times as good.

Anyway, back to the youtube content portion of the entry:

Hello everyone.  This journal entry is just meant to be a portal to my youtube channel.  A continuing project of trying to provide videos relating to the art world, both educational and sometimes just fun things.

Sinixdesign Youtube Channel

Hopes for 2012 include doing more Concept Design Lab videos, more video sketchbooks, portfolio reviews, guest speedpaintings with interviews, paintovers, more art theory and basics videos, and videos that discuss the history of famous designs and designers.

Here is a tutorial series based on digitally Painting Faces and Facial Skintones:
Painting Faces: 01,02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,10,11,12

Also, a single video on actually drawing the faces:
Drawing Faces (redux)

"Artist Showcase" is a series that involves getting great artists to share a video of their work process while we do some commentary and a casual interview.  The latest video features Ian Galvin:

Artist Showcase:  Ian Galvin [jet moto redesign]
Artist Showcase:  MrJack [digital painting]

"Design Lab" is an ongoing series that goes through the process of creating a new design, starting with a brainstorming video, and then a followup final design video.  Latest episode of Design Lab:

Design Lab Episode 9 [sunken forest] - Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

Also have an ongoing series called "Let's Explore DeviantArt".  It's a series critiquing and commenting on DeviantART, nothing serious, just going through random days and talking about what's on the front page.  It's all in good fun, for the sake of EDUTAINMENT!  You can check them out the LATEST video here:

Let's Explore DeviantART: Ep. 11 w/ Pavel

Leave comments on the youtube videos with your recommendations for future videos.  Talk to me on twitter too, need more twitter friends!

I found you through your Youtube drawing of faces. Ten years is a long time. I was eight going on nine when you joined DA. You have improved a lot. My ten year DA anniversary is in three more years. I hope to also be able to say that I've improved too.

I don't like commenting on Youtube so I haven't before. :P

Just wanted to say, I very much enjoy all your youtube vids.
Learned quite alot from all of them. Very interesting content as well.
Thanks for making them! ^^

10 years, you're making me feel old. (=_=)

I've recently had a similar shock. My 10 year high school reunion is this summer, and If you'd told me 10 years ago that in a decade I'd still be drifting, I wouldn't have believed you. 10 years is a long time, right? Well...apparently not.
Good goal, though :D And thanks for "giving back" and sharing your skills and knowledge with all of us.

Wow, I got 4 more years till I reach that. But you've been a great inspiration for me so I think 10 years of DA is a good thing. :) Here's to 10 more!

Btw I really appreciate your youtube channel. Been watching every episode. :D
