This week, let me tell you about...

Idenline

I just found this artist in the past few weeks, and I'm already a fan. Their music is pleasant and relaxing, often with nice vocals, and enough rhythm to keep things interesting.

Here are a few lovely songs to add some chill to your week:

Your Time (So mellow, yet so catchy!)

Together (Somehow both ethereal and cheerful.)

At Sunset (Perfect for unwinding at the end of the day.)

The blog and art gallery of one of True Magic's long-time readers, Zela (a.k.a. Illinia). There's a ton of art and writing to browse, as well as two(!) ongoing fantasy webcomics. Good fun. Go see!

This week, let me tell you about...

Mazedude

Here is one of my long-time favorite game music remixers. There's always something quirky and fascinating going on in his music, which keeps even the longer tracks fun and engaging all the way through.

His mixes have been in my writing/drawing playlists for over a decade now, and I'm still excited whenever I see a new upload from him.

Check out some great examples:

Wheels of Wonder (An eerily magical Myst III: Exile remix.)

Glow Worm Jim (A funky and snazzy Earthworm Jim 2 remix.)

Jackrabbit Transformer (A driving and inspirational Jazz Jackrabbit 2 remix.)

This week, let me tell you about...

Tristam

This guy produces some excellent electronic music. (I'm never sure about genre. Is it glitch hop? Drumstep? Wubcore? I don't know, but there are BEATS and they are LIVELY.)

Here are a few fine examples:

I Remember (Often gets stuck in my head, which I don't mind at all.)

The Vortex (Quirky vocals and bouncy bass make for good times.)

Kings (A handy reminder that you can be the king of your world.)

This week, let me tell you about...

Kienan Lafferty

Are you ready for more art tutorials? Because this guy has art tutorials for you!

He shares tons of useful, instantly-applicable advice: from beginner tips, to anatomy studies, to color theory, to full process walkthroughs of his most awesome paintings.

And he conveys it all with such lively enthusiasm! It always brightens my day just to listen to him.

There are hundreds of videos on his channel, almost all of which contain some worthwhile insight that you can use to make your art better (and/or make the art creation process more fun) right away.

I'm going to share just one that has helped me immensely (and which I still re-watch every year or so):

Using the Force of the Artist

This is how I sketch out my comic panels now, and oh my goodness it works so much better for me than what I was doing before. I don't think I'll ever go back to sketching with a thin hard brush.

Anyway, I encourage you to browse his channel and check out any other tutorials that look relevant to your interests! It can be very handy (as well as entertaining) to have them playing while you draw. :)

This week, let me tell you about...

Notaker

I just discovered this artist recently, and oh man, my work playlist is so much better now. His music makes an excellent accompaniment to writing or drawing any kind of action scene.

Please take note of Notaker:

Retribution (A song that can make everything you do feel epic.)

Abyss (There's gotta be a "deep sea bass" joke here somewhere...)

Infinite (How many times could I listen to this song? *points to title*)
