Wildlife Art – Its History and Development


Some of the earliest of all known art (pre-historic cave and rock art) features wildlife. However, it might be more properly regarded as art about food, rather than art about wildlife as such.

Then for a lot of the rest of the history of art in the western world, art depicting wildlife was mostly absent, due to the fact that art during this period was mostly dominated by narrow perspectives on reality, such as religions. It is only more recently, as society, and the art it produces, frees itself from such narrow world-views, that wildlife art flourishes.

Wildlife is also a difficult subject for the artist, as it is difficult to find and even more difficult to find keeping still in a pose, long enough to even sketch, let alone paint. Recent advances such as photography have made this far easier, as well as being artforms in their own right. Wildlife art is thus now far easier to accomplish both accurately and aesthetically.

In art from outside the western world, wild animals and birds have been portrayed much more frequently throughout history.

Art about wild animals began as a depiction of vital food-sources, in pre-history. At the beginnings of history the western world seems to have shut itself off from the natural world for long periods, and this is reflected in the lack of wildlife art throughout most of art history. More recently, societies, and the art it produces, have become much more broad-minded. Wildlife has become something to marvel at as new areas of the world were explored for the first time, something to hunt for pleasure, to admire aesthetically, and to conserve. These interests are reflected in the wildlife art produced.

The History and development of Wildlife Art…

Wildlife art in Pre-history.

Animal and bird art appears in some of the earliest known examples of artistic creation, such as cave paintings and rock art

The earliest known cave paintings were made around 40,000 years ago, the Upper Paleolithic period. These art works might be more than decoration of living areas as they are often in caves which are difficult to access and don’t show any signs of human habitation. Wildlife was a significant part of the daily life of humans at this time, particularly in terms of hunting for food, and this is reflected in their art. Religious interpretation of the natural world is also assumed to be a significant factor in the depiction of animals and birds at this time.

Probably the most famous of all cave painting, in Lascaux (France), includes the image of a wild horse, which is one of the earliest known examples of wildlife art. Another example of wildlife cave painting is that of reindeer in the Spanish cave of Cueva de las Monedas, probably painted at around the time of the last ice-age. The oldest known cave paintings (maybe around 32,000 years old) are also found in France, at the Grotte Chauvet, and depict horses, rhinoceros, lions, buffalo, mammoth and humans, often hunting.

Wildlife painting is one of the commonest forms of cave art. Subjects are often of large wild animals, including bison, horses, aurochs, lions, bears and deer. The people of this time were probably relating to the natural world mostly in terms of their own survival, rather than separating themselves from it.

Cave paintings found in Africa often include animals. Cave paintings from America include animal species such as rabbit, puma, lynx, deer, wild goat and sheep, whale, turtle, tuna, sardine, octopus, eagle, and pelican, and is noted for its high quality and remarkable color. Rock paintings made by Australian Aborigines include so-called “X-ray” paintings which show the bones and organs of the animals they depict. Paintings on caves/rocks in Australia include local species of animals, fish and turtles.

Animal carvings were also made during the Upper Paleolithic period… which constitute the earliest examples of wildlife sculpture.

In Africa, bushman rock paintings, at around 8000 BC, clearly depict antelope and other animals.

The advent of the Bronze age in Europe, from the 3rd Millennium BC, led to a dedicated artisan class, due to the beginnings of specialization resulting from the surpluses available in these advancing societies. During the Iron age, mythical and natural animals were a common subject of artworks, often involving decoration of objects such as plates, knives and cups. Celtic influences affected the art and architecture of local Roman colonies, and outlasted them, surviving into the historic period.

Wildlife Art in the Ancient world (Classical art).

History is considered to begin at the time writing is invented. The earliest examples of ancient art originate from Egypt and Mesopotamia.

The great art traditions have their origins in the art of one of the six great ancient “classical” civilizations: Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, Rome, India, or China. Each of these great civilizations developed their own unique style of art.

Animals were commonly depicted in Chinese art, including some examples from the 4th Century which depict stylized mythological creatures and thus are rather a departure from pure wildlife art. Ming dynasty Chinese art features pure wildlife art, including ducks, swans, sparrows, tigers, and other animals and birds, with increasing realism and detail.

In the 7th Century, Elephants, monkeys and other animals were depicted in stone carvings in Ellora, India. These carvings were religious in nature, yet depicted real animals rather than more mythological creatures.

Ancient Egyptian art includes many animals, used within the symbolic and highly religious nature of Egyptian art at the time, yet showing considerable anatomical knowledge and attention to detail. Animal symbols are used within the famous Egyptian hieroglyphic symbolic language.

Early South American art often depicts representations of a divine jaguar.

The Minoans, the greatest civilization of the Bronze Age, created naturalistic designs including fish, squid and birds in their middle period. By the late Minoan period, wildlife was still the most characteristic subject of their art, with increasing variety of species.

The art of the nomadic people of the Mongolian steppes is primarily animal art, such as gold stags, and is typically small in size as befits their traveling lifestyle.

Aristotle (384-322 BC) suggested the concept of photography, but this wasn’t put into practice until 1826.

The Medieval period, AD 200 to 1430

This period includes early Christian and Byzantine art, as well as Romanesque and Gothic art (1200 to 1430). Most of the art which survives from this period is religious, rather than realistic, in nature. Animals in art at this time were used as symbols rather than representations of anything in the real world. So very little wildlife art as such could be said to exist at all during this period.

Renaissance wildlife art, 1300 to 1602.

This arts movement began from ideas which initially emerged in Florence. After centuries of religious domination of the arts, Renaissance artists began to move more towards ancient mystical themes and depicting the world around them, away from purely Christian subject matter. New techniques, such as oil painting and portable paintings, as well as new ways of looking such as use of perspective and realistic depiction of textures and lighting, led to great changes in artistic expression.

The two major schools of Renaissance art were the Italian school who were heavily influenced by the art of ancient Greece and Rome, and the northern Europeans… Flemish, Dutch and Germans, who were generally more realistic and less idealized in their work. The art of the Renaissance reflects the revolutions in ideas and science which occurred in this Reformation period.

The early Renaissance features artists such as Botticelli, and Donatello. Animals are still being used symbolically and in mythological context at this time, for example “Pegasus” by Jacopo de’Barbari.

The best-known artist of the high Renaissance is Leonardo-Da-Vinci. Although most of his artworks depict people and technology, he occasionally incorporates wildlife into his images, such as the swan in “Leda and the swan”, and the animals portrayed in his “lady with an ermine”, and “studies of cat movements and positions”.

Durer is regarded as the greatest artist of the Northern European Renaissance. Albrecht Durer was particularly well-known for his wildlife art, including pictures of hare, rhinoceros, bullfinch, little owl, squirrels, the wing of a blue roller, monkey, and blue crow.

Baroque wildlife art, 1600 to 1730.

This important artistic age, encouraged by the Roman Catholic Church and the aristocracy of the time, features such well-known great artists as Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Rubens, Velazquez, Poussin, and Vermeer. Paintings of this period often use lighting effects to increase the dramatic effect.

Wildlife art of this period includes a lion, and “goldfinch” by Carel Fabrituis.

Melchior de Hondecoeter was a specialist animal and bird artist in the baroque period with paintings including “revolt in the poultry coup”, “cocks fighting” and “palace of Amsterdam with exotic birds”.

The Rococo art period was a later (1720 to 1780) decadent sub-genre of the Baroque period, and includes such famous painters as Canaletto, Gainsborough and Goya. Wildlife art of the time includes “Dromedary study” by Jean Antoine Watteau, and “folly of beasts” by Goya.

Jean-Baptiste Oudry was a Rococo wildlife specialist, who often painted commissions for royalty.

Some of the earliest scientific wildlife illustration was also created at around this time, for example from artist William Lewin who published a book illustrating British birds, painted entirely by hand.

Wildlife art in the 18th to 19th C.

In 1743, Mark Catesby published his documentation of the flora and fauna of the explored areas of the New World, which helped encourage both business investment and interest in the natural history of the continent.

In response to the decadence of the Rococo period, neo-classicism arose in the late 18th Century (1750-1830 ). This genre is more ascetic, and contains much sensuality, but none of the spontaneity which characterizes the later Romantic period. This movement focused on the supremacy of natural order over man’s will, a concept which culminated in the romantic art depiction of disasters and madness.

Francois Le Vaillant (1769-1832) was a bird illustrator (and ornithologist) around this time.

Georges Cuvier, (1769-1832), painted accurate images of more than 5000 fish, relating to his studies of comparative organismal biology.

Edward Hicks is an example of an American wildlife painter of this period, who’s art was dominated by his religious context.

Sir Edwin Henry Landseer was also painting wildlife at this time, in a style strongly influenced by dramatic emotional judgments of the animals involved.

This focus towards nature led the painters of the Romantic era (1790 – 1880) to transform landscape painting, which had previously been a minor art form, into an art-form of major importance. The romantics rejected the ascetic ideals of Neo-Classicalism.

The practical use of photography began in around 1826, although it was a while before wildlife became a common subject for its use. The first color photograph was taken in 1861, but easy-to-use color plates only became available in 1907.

In 1853 Bisson and Mante created some of the first known wildlife photography.

In France, Gaspar-Felix Tournacho, “Nadar” (1820-1910) applied the same aesthetic principles used in painting, to photography, thus beginning the artistic discipline of fine art photography. Fine Art photography Prints were also reproduced in Limited Editions, making them more valuable.

Jaques-Laurent Agasse was one of the foremost painters of animals in Europe around the end of the 18th C and the beginning of the 19th. His animal art was unusually realistic for the time, and he painted some wild animals including giraffe and leopards.

Romantic wildlife art includes “zebra”, “cheetah, stag and two Indians”, at least two monkey paintings, a leopard and “portrait of a royal tiger” by George Stubbs who also did many paintings of horses.

One of the great wildlife sculptors of the Romantic period was Antoine-Louis Barye. Barye was also a wildlife painter, who demonstrated the typical dramatic concepts and lighting of the romantic movement.

Delacroix painted a tiger attacking a horse, which as is common with Romantic paintings, paints subject matter on the border between human (a domesticated horse) and the natural world (a wild tiger).

In America, the landscape painting movement of the Romantic era was known as the Hudson River School (1850s – c. 1880). These landscapes occasionally include wildlife, such as the deer in “Dogwood” and “valley of the Yosemite” by Albert Bierstadt, and more obviously in his “buffalo trail”, but the focus is on the landscape rather than the wildlife in it.

Wildlife artist Ivan Ivanovitch Shishkin demonstrates beautiful use of light in his landscape-oriented wildlife art.

Although Romantic painting focused on nature, it rarely portrayed wild animals, tending much more towards the borders between man and nature, such as domesticated animals and people in landscapes rather than the landscapes themselves. Romantic art seems in a way to be about nature, but usually only shows nature from a human perspective.

Audubon was perhaps the most famous painter of wild birds at around this time, with a distinctive American style, yet painting the birds realistically and in context, although in somewhat over-dramatic poses. As well as birds, he also painted the mammals of America, although these works of his are somewhat less well known. At around the same time In Europe, Rosa Bonheur was finding fame as a wildlife artist.

Amongst Realist art, “the raven” by Manet and “stags at rest” by Rosa Bonheur are genuine wildlife art. However in this artistic movement animals are much more usually depicted obviously as part of a human context.

The wildlife art of the impressionist movement includes “angler’s prize” by Theodore Clement Steele, and the artist Joseph Crawhall was a specialist wildlife artist strongly influenced by impressionism.

At this time, accurate scientific wildlife illustration was also being created. One name known for this kind of work in Europe is John Gould although his wife Elizabeth was the one who actually did most of the illustrations for his books on birds.

Post-impressionism (1886 – 1905, France) includes a water-bird in Rousseau’s “snake charmer”, and Rousseau’s paintings, which include wildlife, are sometimes considered Post-impressionist (as well as Fauvist, see below).

Fauvism (1904 – 1909, France) often considered the first “modern” art movement, re-thought use of color in art. The most famous fauvist is Matisse, who depicts birds and fish in is “polynesie la Mer” and birds in his “Renaissance”. Other wildlife art in this movement includes a tiger in “Surprised! Storm in the Forest” by Rousseau, a lion in his “sleeping Gypsy” and a jungle animal in his “exotic landscape”. Georges Braque depicts a bird in many of his artworks, including “L’Oiseaux Bleu et Gris”, and his “Astre et l’Oiseau”.

Ukiyo-e-printmaking (Japanese wood-block prints, originating from 17th C) was becoming known in the West, during the 19th C, and had a great influence on Western painters, particularly in France.

Wildlife art in this genre includes several untitled prints (owl, bird, eagle) by Ando Hiroshige, and “crane”, “cat and butterfly”, “wagtail and wisteria” by Hokusai Katsushika.

Wildlife art in the 20th Century, Contemporary art, postmodern art, etc.

Changing from the relatively stable views of a mechanical universe held in the 19th-century, the 20th-century shatters these views with such advances as Einstein’s Relativity and Freuds sub-conscious psychological influence.

The greater degree of contact with the rest of the world had a significant influence on Western arts, such as the influence of African and Japanese art on Pablo Picasso, for example.

American Wildlife artist Carl Runguis spans the end of the 19th and the beginnings of the 20th Century. His style evolved from tightly rendered scientific-influenced style, through impressionist influence, to a more painterly approach.

The golden age of illustration includes mythical wildlife “The firebird” by Edmund Dulac, and “tile design of Heron and Fish” by Walter Crane.

George Braque’s birds can be defined as Analytical Cubist (this genre was jointly developed by Braque and Picasso from 1908 to 1912), (as well as Fauvist). Fernand Leger also depicts birds in his “Les Oiseaux”.

There was also accurate scientific wildlife illustration being done at around this time, such as those done by America illustrator Louis Agassiz Fuertes who painted birds in America as well as other countries.

Expressionism (1905 – 1930, Germany). “Fox”, “monkey Frieze, “red deer”, and “tiger”, etc by Franz Marc qualify as wildlife art, although to contemporary viewers seem more about the style than the wildlife.

Postmodernism as an art genre, which has developed since the 1960′s, looks to the whole range of art history for its inspiration, as contrasted with Modernism which focuses on its own limited context. A different yet related view of these genres is that Modernism attempts to search for an idealized truth, where as post-modernism accepts the impossibility of such an ideal. This is reflected, for example, in the rise of abstract art, which is an art of the indefinable, after about a thousand years of art mostly depicting definable objects.

Magic realism (1960′s Germany) often included animals and birds, but usually as a minor feature among human elements, for example, swans and occasionally other animals in many paintings by Michael Parkes.

In 1963, Ray Harm is a significant bird artist.

Robert Rauschenberg’s “American eagle”, a Pop Art (mid 1950′s onwards) piece, uses the image of an eagle as a symbol rather than as something in its own right, and thus is not really wildlife art. The same applies to Any Warhol’s “Butterflys”.

Salvador Dali, the best known of Surrealist (1920′s France, onwards) artists, uses wild animals in some of his paintings, for example “Landscape with Butterflys”, but within the context of surrealism, depictions of wildlife become conceptually something other than what they might appear to be visually, so they might not really be wildlife at all. Other examples of wildlife in Surrealist art are Rene Magritte’s “La Promesse” and “L’entre ed Scene”.

Op art (1964 onwards) such as M. C. Escher’s “Sky and Water” shows ducks and fish, and “mosaic II” shows many animals and birds, but they are used as image design elements rather than the art being about the animals.

Roger Tory Peterson created fine wildlife art, which although being clear illustrations for use in his book which was the first real field guide to birds, are also aesthetically worthy bird paintings.

Young British Artists (1988 onwards). Damien Hirst uses a shark in a tank as one of his artworks. It is debatable whether this piece could be considered as wildlife art, because even though the shark is the focus of the piece, the piece is not really about the shark itself, but probably more about the shark’s effect on the people viewing it. It could be said to be more a use of wildlife in/as art, than a work of wildlife art.

Wildlife art continues to be popular today, with such artists as Robert Bateman being very highly regarded, although in his case somewhat controversial for his release of Limited-Edition prints which certain fine-art critics deplore.

The Benefits of CAE for Modern Development

As technology continues to advance, so do the tools and resources available for modern development. One such tool that has become increasingly popular in recent years is computer-aided engineering (CAE). CAE is a powerful software that enables engineers and designers to simulate and analyze various scenarios to optimize their product designs. From reducing costs to improving performance and reliability, the advantages of CAE for modern development are numerous.

The Advantages of CAE

Firstly, CAE can help reduce the cost of product development. By using simulation and analysis tools, engineers can identify potential design flaws and make necessary adjustments before physical prototypes are produced. This eliminates the need for expensive trial-and-error testing and reduces the risk of costly errors in production.

Secondly, CAE can help improve product performance and reliability. By running simulations under various conditions, engineers can identify potential weaknesses and make improvements to the design. This ensures that the final product is optimized for its intended use and will perform effectively and reliably in the real world.

Finally, CAE can help speed up the product development process. By using simulations to test various scenarios, engineers can quickly identify the most effective design solutions and make necessary adjustments. This can significantly reduce the time it takes to bring a product to market, giving businesses a competitive edge in today’s fast-paced market.

Case Studies of Successful CAE Implementation

Many businesses have already seen the benefits of CAE in action. One example is Airbus, a leading manufacturer of commercial aircraft. By using CAE to simulate and optimize its aircraft designs, Airbus has been able to reduce development costs by up to 30% and improve fuel efficiency by up to 5%. This has given the company a significant competitive advantage in the highly competitive aviation market.

Another example is Ford Motor Company, which has used CAE to optimize its vehicle designs. By simulating various crash scenarios, Ford has been able to identify potential safety issues and make necessary adjustments before physical prototypes are produced. This has helped the company improve the safety and reliability of its vehicles while also reducing development costs.

CAE and Its Impact on the Bottom Line

The advantages of CAE can have a significant impact on a business’s bottom line. By reducing development costs, improving product performance and reliability, and speeding up the product development process, businesses can increase their profitability and gain a competitive edge in the market.

For example, by using CAE to optimize its product designs, a business can reduce the cost of raw materials, manufacturing, and testing. This can result in significant cost savings over the long term, which can be reinvested in other areas of the business or passed on to customers in the form of lower prices. Additionally, by improving product performance and reliability, businesses can increase customer satisfaction and loyalty, which can lead to increased sales and revenue.

Overcoming Common Challenges When Implementing CAE

While the benefits of CAE are clear, implementing this technology can come with its own set of challenges. One common challenge is the cost of acquiring and maintaining CAE software licenses. Depending on the size of the business and the complexity of its product designs, the cost of CAE software can be significant.

Another challenge is the need for specialized training and expertise. CAE software requires a deep understanding of engineering principles and software programming, which can be challenging for businesses that don’t have access to a team of experienced engineers.

Finally, integrating CAE into existing workflows can be a challenge. CAE software typically requires significant computing power, which can be a challenge for businesses that don’t have access to high-performance computing resources.

Choosing the Right CAE Software for Your Business

When choosing CAE software for your business, there are several factors to consider. Firstly, consider the complexity of your product designs and the level of simulation and analysis required. Some CAE software is better suited for simple designs, while others are designed for complex, highly specialized products.

Secondly, consider the cost of the software and any ongoing maintenance and licensing fees. Some CAE software is available for free or at a relatively low cost, while others require a significant investment.

Finally, consider the level of support and training available for the software. Some CAE software providers offer extensive training and support, while others offer minimal support.

Integrating CAE into Your Workflow

Integrating CAE into your existing workflow can be a challenge, but several strategies can help. Firstly, consider outsourcing CAE tasks to a third-party provider. This can be a cost-effective way to access specialized expertise without the need for significant investment in software and hardware.

Secondly, consider investing in high-performance computing resources to support your CAE software. This can help ensure that your simulations run smoothly and quickly, reducing the time and cost of product development.

Finally, consider providing your engineers with specialized training in CAE software to help them maximize the benefits of this technology. This can help ensure that your team is equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively use CAE software to optimize product designs.

Training and Support for CAE Implementation

As with any new technology, training, and support are critical for successful CAE implementation. Many CAE software providers offer extensive training and support to help businesses effectively use their software.

Additionally, there are many online resources available for those looking to learn more about CAE and its applications. From online courses to forums and user groups, there are many opportunities to connect with other CAE users and learn from their experiences.

Future Trends in CAE and Optimization

As technology continues to advance, the future of CAE and optimization looks bright. One trend that is already emerging is the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize product designs. By using data analysis and predictive algorithms, engineers can quickly identify the most effective design solutions and make necessary adjustments.

Another trend is the use of cloud-based CAE software, which can offer significant cost savings and flexibility for businesses. By accessing CAE software through the cloud, businesses can reduce the need for expensive hardware and software investments while also accessing the latest software updates and features.

Earn a lot of money online with no expense

Explaining how someone with spare time can earn good money communicating with and helping others online

The time has come to improve your life. But why not improve the life of others at the same time? You can do this by communicating online with people and helping them. Over the past few years various new ways of communicating and helping others have evolved. Partly because of the virus and how it was harder for people to form or keep relationships you can now consider any of these as proper professions… the professional hugger,Guest Posting the professional friend and the professional listener. Of course in order to be doing one of these you need to be able to offer people those skills. In some cases you can do them online only, the professional listener works well that way, with others it is necessary to meet up with them. The professional hugger would not be able to work online. Yes it is necessary to make sure that the person you are sending money to is genuine first, not just send them money and hope they deliver the goods later – it is far more difficult with goods such as these than it is a tangible object like a book – but you also have to see it from the other person’s point of view too. There are cases of people, usually old men, who approach young women saying they want to hire them as a professional hugger – offering them what is usually a very tiny amount of money – but really being after sex. If you are not naive and you do not automatically trust people you will be fine.

What is a way you can get into this work and why would you? You can go to a website such as ask agony aunts advice online where you can sign onto a directory once you have decided to go ahead, but you can find out a lot about it there first. You can be totally self employed, you can be someone who does it full time seriously or part time. You have a lot of choices to make along the way. Do be sure you are able to do it though, it is no good if you are already very busy or unreliable, and not fair to potential customers. In the case of face to face meet ups consider travelling and whether it would pay enough or be feasible if travelling to whoever, also think about how you ought to make sure it is a genuine booking before you speed off wherever in case it is a hoax.

I predict that one day there will be more and more people offering these services and eventually the industry might be saturated with people. But right now you can call the shots as there are so few people available to hire. Compare it to dog sitting. There are now loads of people in every single city offering it, so many that they offer it at a dirt cheap price. But you still ought to be wary, it is still a big thing to trust your pet to a stranger, and some have ulterior motives or are not reliable. Do not always put a cheap price first.

Think carefully about whether or not it is a good idea to take on more work and then work out the rest from there. Your motivation might be money, fine, it might be boredom, it might be a challenge, it might be meeting people. All of those motives and many others are fine. You don’t need a lot of experience, or any, nor qualifications, but you do need to be good with people and able to deliver what they seek.

How Oral Health & Mental Health are Connected

Did you know that your mental health and your oral health are connected and can affect each other? If you neglect one, the other can suffer. Learn how to improve both and have a healthier quality of life.

Like many people,Guest Posting you may see oral health in purely physical terms. It’s easy, after all, to believe healthy teeth and gums only benefit your body. In truth, however, your mouth’s condition also impacts your mind – and vice-versa! As a result, poor health in one leads to poor health in the other. You should thus keep track of each to ensure your life is thriving. Luckily, your local dentist can help. Here, then, are the ways that oral and mental health relate and how to keep them both on track.

Unhealthy Mouth, Unhealthy Mind
If your mouth declines in health, chances are it’ll lower your confidence and self-image. From there, you’ll be at greater risk of mental illness.

You see, oral problems – tooth pain, missing teeth, bad breath, etc. – can harm crucial parts of your life. For example, oral pain or missing teeth can cause peer communication problems. This challenge, in turn, might lead to trouble at work or with friends and family. Such trouble can then grow big enough to cause anxiety, depression, or other unstable emotions.

Low Mood Means Oral Damage
As it happens, mental health issues can interfere with teeth and gum maintenance. Mood disorders, especially, often cause life changes that hurt your mouth.

Consider, say, clinical depression. Since this condition lowers motivation, it may make your oral care routines hard to maintain and manage. Rather than work toward a healthy smile and see it as worthwhile, you might think there’s no point in having one and neglect oral hygiene.

Similarly, anxiety might prompt you to develop bad oral habits. You might, for instance, manifest your stress as teeth grinding and jaw clenching – problems that trigger tooth damage. On the other hand, someone could take out their anxiety on their teeth via overbrushing. In that case, they’d suffer from tooth sensitivity and receding gums.

Making the Link Work for You
Thankfully, there are ways to make the mouth-mind link work in your favor. All you have to do is adopt the right practices. In particular, try out the following tips as listed below:

· Seek Professional Therapy – If you believe you have depression, seek professional help right away. With a proper diagnosis and treatment (therapy, medication, lifestyle, etc.), your motivation toward oral care may rise. You’d then have better teeth that help with confidence and body image.

· Turn Oral Care into Self-Care – When brushing your teeth, try to say positive affirmations about yourself. That way, you’ll link oral care with a better self-image. Furthermore, gradual improvements in your teeth will make the affirmations feel justified.

· Follow a Better Diet – A high-sugar diet can cause tooth decay and mood instability. As such, try to eat a mouth-healthy diet in the future. The change will result both in nicer teeth and a boost in mood.

3 Ways Dental Implants Improve Your Oral Health

You may think all tooth replacements have the same quality, but dental implants offer oral health benefits that others don’t. Learn more about how this option can give you back your smile!

All tooth replacements are the same,Guest Posting aren’t they?. No, not at all! While traditional dentures and bridges enable you to have a complete set of teeth again visibly, implant restorations are the only option that also restores the tooth roots. As a result, they are best option if you want to keep your smile healthy and strong in the long term. How do they improve your oral health over normal dentures and bridges? Keep reading to find out!

Strengthen the Jawbone
As soon as a tooth root is removed from the jawbone, the tissue is resorbed by the body. Basically, the jawbone starts to degrade, becoming weaker and less dense over time. As a result, your ability to bite and chew food also gets weaker. Plus, a diminished jawbone makes it easier to suffer additional, future tooth loss.

Replacing the root as well as the crown, dental implants encourage new bone growth and continue to draw nutrients to the tissue just like real roots, which means that you can keep eating nutritious foods with at least 75 percent of your original biting power. In addition, with a strong jawbone, you have the support necessary to preserve your other teeth.

Maintain Jawbone Shape
When the jawbone decreases in density from tooth loss, it also slowly changes shape over time. That’s why people who have missing teeth tend to have old-looking, sunken faces. Although traditional dentures can help regain some ground, youthful facial shape is gone.

Fortunately, replacing missing teeth with implants keeps the jawbone strong and healthy. Consequently, it retains its shape over the years because the implants are securely embedded in the bone tissue, like real teeth.

What if you lost teeth a long time ago? Depending on how much time has lapsed, you may need to have a bone graft, which builds your jawbone back up enough to get implants. So, even then, you can have your healthier facial shape back when you choose implants!

Spare Surrounding Teeth from Unnecessary Damage
Other replacement options—namely bridges and partial dentures—rely on your remaining teeth to stay in place. Before a bridge can be attached, the two teeth on either side of the gap have be to be reduced. In other words, perfectly healthy enamel has to be removed to make room for the bridge.

Partial dentures often use metal clasps that wrap around the teeth for stability. Although this doesn’t directly cause damage, it could increase the risk of cavities or excessive wear for these teeth.

On the other hand, implants are completely independent of other teeth because they integrate with the jawbone, meaning no teeth are harmed in the process! Simply put, you get to keep your healthy teeth just as they are with dental implants.

In this article, we outline 5 incredible tips to start the journey of choosing the best video production company in Brisbane that aligns with your requirements.

Check out their portfolio.
Portfolios showcase the past work and the quality of the work of the video production company. However, it is easy to get impressed by seeing some of their best work, but dig deeper to check what clients are saying about the services they have used.

You need to ask yourself a few questions:

What is the consistency in the quality of their work?
Do they align with my needs?
What is their visual and creative style? And I am ok with it?
Though there is no such thing as a perfect video production Gold Coast company, you need to weigh your priorities. Some production companies deal with specific niches, while others have a broader scope of work. At last, you have to come down to a company that can meet your needs.

Look for a company that can handle logistics.
Though looking for the passion and creativity of video production members is important, having a strong command of logistics should be more. Usually, Brisbane Production Companies members forget that there is a timeline to fulfill.

Video production is not just limited to shooting videos; it is so much more than that! There are mainly three phases that define the work of video production: pre-production, production, and post-production. Phase one is about planning and coordination. Phase two deals with capturing the elements to be put in the final video. And phase three comprises all the elements edited together and combined to create a final outlook. Hence, choosing a company that you feel confident in handling all the phases in an organized manner and completing the project on time is the key.

Pay attention to the timeline.
As mentioned in above point, the timeline is one of the crucial factors that go into deciding whether you can work with a particular music video production Brisbane company or not. Though, ensure that the timeline should not compromise the quality of the video at any cost. Yes, you want a company that completes your project on time, but hurrying up the process by sidelining quality would not do.

Especially if you are working with a video production company for the first time, ensure you do not work close to a major timeline, like the release of the project. Hire an organization that is ready to have some extra time beforehand to edit any parts required. Generally, a good company ensures that they fulfill all the necessary requirements in the planning phase itself so that nothing goes wrong at the end.

Choose a company that communicates well.
Effective communication is important throughout all phases of video production to provide insights into the project’s progress. Since there are so many aspects to video production, from permits for the location to hiring talented people, they need to communicate at each step.

Hence, communication is one of those qualities that you cannot overlook. Since they are the ones responsible for representing your brand in front of the customers, it is important to communicate effectively.

Setting up the budget
Budget is not the sole criterion in choosing a video production company in Brisbane, but it goes a long way in chucking out the company that you cannot afford. It is surprising that a lot of clients are not clear on the part of the budget.

It is not always true that lower-charging companies produce low-quality videos while higher-charging companies deliver high-quality videos. You need to make sure that the prices justify the profits in return. Discuss the budget part with the chosen company, which also gives you clarity on if there is any involvement of hidden fees in the overall free structure.
