Painting Tips for Dimensional Paper Clay Art with Rogene Manas

“I have an example here. I’m going to start with, and I’m going to use just the black, I’m just going to start with black. I’m going to do this on a flower here. I’m not using thick paint. This is very important. I’m using thin paint and the grayer, meaning, the thinner the paint, the grayer, the lighter your work is going to appear. So if maybe if you’re doing flowers, you don’t want it to be heavy black. Maybe you want it to be a softer color. So we’ll just do a half of it at a time.”

Testing Colors While Painting Watercolor Portraits with Colleen Reynolds

“So another thing I like to do before, if I’m, hesitant of what color combinations to do. I like to have a piece of just clear paper, the paper that I’m actually going to paint on though, not some bad paper and just test your colors before you start and see what they, see what they look like. So I have a little bit of that. Ozzy red, gold I talked about is kind of a new color I don’t know much about. So maybe on a piece of scrap paper, that’s professional grade, the same paper I’m going to use for my painting. I’ll take my combination of colors and I’ll do a little triangle swatch. So this is my pression blue, so it’s quite dark.”

I don’t know why, just because I feel like I’m going to throw it to adjust the shape. Nope. See, let me try this, these tool. So now we know clouds, they have whatever shapes they want. So you can’t go wrong with the cloud. I think, I hope. And after I did this, I’m going to take the poll tool and just, you know, press a bit. So to give it like, you know, this, the weird texture here, so did you won’t be smooth. Okay. It doesn’t matter how you make it.”

New York, NY (May 25, 2021) — The Telly Awards, the world’s largest honor for video and television content across all screens, has announced this year’s winners, including Jennifer Garner’s “Pretend Cooking Show” series, RadicalMedia’s “Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel” documentary series, Partizan’s “Fantastic Voyage” campaign, and much more.

Founded in 1979, the Telly Awards honors excellence in video and television across all screens and is judged by the Telly Award Judging Council, a group of leading video and television experts from some of the most prestigious companies in entertainment, publishing, advertising, and emerging technology, such as WarnerMedia, NBC News, Framestore NY, and Vimeo to name a few.

The 42nd annual Telly Awards received a 15% increase in entries from the previous year. The growth was driven by a significant rise in remote and virtual productions, with many brands taking to animation for the first time. The Telly Awards is also proud to name Al Jazeera Media Network as this year’s ‘Telly Company of the Year’. A trailblazer in bringing to life limit-defying content, Al Jazeera’s breadth of work, particularly its “A Day in Wuhan” and “Stricken Beirut” along with “About Cinema” series, perfectly embodies the creativity and storytelling efforts the Telly Awards have long shined a spotlight on.

“In the face of a year like no other, the visual storytelling community has continued to defy the limitations of our new world. Achievements have been both societal, such as embracing social media platforms to raise awareness about injustices and promote solidarity for movements, as well as geographical, like developing fully remote pipelines for dispersed teams”, says Telly Awards Executive Director Sabrina Dridje. “This year’s submissions doubled down on what we already know about the industry. Creativity cannot be stopped. Collaboration will always prevail. New ideas and stories will always find a way to break through to an audience.”

In recognition of the industry’s evolving cultural change, The Telly Awards continued its commitment toward supporting the talent, voices, and narratives of underrepresented artists around the globe. At the start of the season, The Telly Awards welcomed Ghetto Film School and UK-based We Are Parable as media partners. This mission was also reflected within the international and multidisciplinary judging lineup, which was bolstered by the joinings of Shalini Sharma of NBC News, Ryan Honey of Buck, Andrew Wareham of Taxi Group Australia, Karyn Spencer of Whalar, Amy Tunick of WarnerMedia, Jamie Elden of Shutterstock, Kavita Lokchander of Thrive Global, Meghan Oretsky of Vimeo, and Andrew Rowan-Robinson of Framestore NY.

On the heels of a hugely successful virtual screening series, The Telly Awards has also rolled out its first-ever original and monthly interview series to further celebrate creators who have pushed the boundaries of possibility.

Entitled “Hot Takes ”, it features unfiltered discussions presented by a chosen industry expert. The latest installments include “Will Change The Future of Content and Media?” from Josh Ness of Verizon 5G Labs and “Brand Strategy In a Post-Pandemic World ” from Dushane Ramsay of Square, with many more to come.

Finally, it was a standout year for the ‘People’s Telly Awards’, which are given to the most-loved pieces chosen by the Telly Awards audience and, this year, received the most public votes in the history of the category. Winners include Square’s “Black Owned”, a stirring film series chronicling the lives of Black business owners across three of the nation’s most populous cities, the Walt Disney Company’s “Cooking with Pixar”, and WeTransfer’s “Doubt. Create. Repeat.” global brand campaign. The latter boldly calls on the creative community to harness feelings of doubt in pursuit of their ideas.

Working on the Ears for a Baby Angel Fairy Sculpture with Apryl Jensen

“Okay. So I’m gonna give you some, intense instruction here for this, this tall. So right now the thickness of this ear is more than what I want it to be. So I’m just letting you know, it’s gonna end up being about half of what it is right now, but that comes later. I’m finding, I like to cut that off at a later stage in the game here. So right now what I’m doing is here is the jaw line and it’s going to kind of go up through here. Okay. So we kind of just see that that’s, what’s happening there with a baby that makes sure we push it back far enough. And now the ear actually tips back at about a 15%, 15 degree angle. And so that’s why you have it rather than sitting straight this way, kind of tips, tips a little bit back and next. What I’m going to do is first, I want to attach the clay on the back here.”
