Fractalism and Unorthodox Findings in Visual ArtWhat I’ve Learned.Fractalism and Unorthodox Findings in Visual Art2 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
I’ve experimented with painting a lot. With painting shapes, forms, abstracts, reality, patterns, landscapes, human figures, and much more. I think I’ve probably done somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 paintings by now, probably closer to 450. I never went to a school to learn how to paint. I had a mentor, William Vanya, who guided me in his variable styles, but the way I learned was basically sink or swim; paintings that were good were kept (not many early on) and paintings that were bad discarded. With no formal training regimen such as a syllabus, it was basically a wild goose chase on the hunt for good form and visual aesthetic. Early on it was hard for me to recognize when a painting was finished, and especially hard to recognize good deconstructivist pieces. There were great paintings that were painted over or destroyed without the sense to protect them from my untrained eye.
During the two years that I locked mysel
Silverwing and Adaptation DecayLet’s take a minute to talk about adaptation.Silverwing and Adaptation Decay2 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Whenever a book becomes a movie or a TV show, changes have to be made. Purists will tell you any change is bad and the book is automatically better. This is sometimes the case, but it isn’t automatically so. I’ve come to enjoy movies like The Godfather and Die Hard much better than their literary versions because they were able to tell the story and keep the general ideas intact with a few medium-appropriate changes while still making a great final product.
This takes us to Silverwing. I don’t think my initial Atrocity review was enough to articulate how much of a fail this series was. The books were just great, offering a detailed portrayal of bats. Bats are usually portrayed as the devil, but author Kenneth Oppel was able to tell a great story with well-researched animal behaviors, vivid language, and interesting philosophies to make this great story. The show has none of that, but we’ll
Have you truely repented?Have you truely repented?2 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Have you fully repented? This video will help to put things into perspective!
The wages of sin are death, and everywhere you look on earth is sin. Take inventory of what you say and do each moment of everyday so you arent counted among those who would fall short. Very few will make it, this is written....so many claim to be follow Christ yet will fall short!!! Please, I beg you repent and leave the ways of this world behind! The art, media and even games are full of corruption that chain us to our own destruction, if you love God, if you fear his judgement, please turn from the world and its ways while you can!!!
Konzervacija slika, problematika i pristupZa početak je potrebno definirati restauraciju i konzervaciju umjetničkih slika. Restauracija je kompletan zahvat «popravka» i «obnove» oštećenog umjetničkog djela koji podrazumjeva konzervativne zahvate ( zahvate očuvanja konstrukcijskih djelova slike – podloga, preparacija, slikani sloj) i estetske zahvate (uklanjanje prljavštine sa slikanog sloja, tj. svi zahvati koji podrazumijevaju djelovanje na estetski dojam slike (lakiranje, retuširanje). Ovaj način podjele, iako banalizira problematiku, jest univerzalan te olakšava razgovor o samoj restauraciji. Važno je naglasiti da konzervacija kao restauratorski zahvat i zanimanje konzervatora su dvije vrlo različite stvari. Obje se bave očuvanjem, no prva očuvanjem sastavnica umjetničkog djela, dok druga popisuje, katalogizira, proučava umjetničko djelo i njegov smještaj i važnost u povijesnom kontekstu.Konzervacija slika, problematika i pristup2 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

Il faut avant tout savoir que Calypsoo, Lucie et Limetax sont en période d'examen jusqu'au 1er juillet inclus, il sera donc difficile pour eux de participer jusqu'à cette date. Pour le reste, sachant que Calypsoo (qui gère le compte) est assez occupée en ce moment, nous allons voir pour modifier quelque peu le fonctionnement du groupe, ainsi que le fonctionnement des participations.
De plus, nous rappelons que nous sommes toujours à la recherche de membres plus ou moins réguliers, et plus ou moins bilingue (google trad' n'est pas mon ami, non).
Aussi, je le dis maintenant, nous allons faire un thème du mois (celui de juin sera annoncé le 31 mai) et au lieu d'avoir un thème par semaine, il y en aura un pour deux semaines (je ne sais pas si vous me suivez bien ^^"). Aussi, les participations ne sont désormais plus ouverte qu'aux dessins. Nous accepton
Conflux (Jazz Metal)Conflux (Jazz Metal)1 day ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
1) Hello and welcome here, let's introduce yourself!
Hi! I'm Kevin, the guitar player and songwriter of the jazz-metal band Conflux.
2) Why have you chosen this monicker, "Conflux"?
Well, the word "Conflux" means a meeting of disparate parts, and we thought it really perfectly described the blend of jazz, heavy metal, and other styles of music that we try to incorporate. It's also not limited to just "jazz" or just "heavy metal". It's a conflux of everything musical that makes this band what it is.
3) I have seen your video on YouTube; and I have shared the link on a Jazz community on Google+, with other users!
Can you tell us something about that video?
Thank you for that! We've gotten a really great response about the video. We didn't really have a concept for a music video at first, but honestly, we don't take ourselves all that seriously, and we sort of mixed a goofy little plot with shots of us just rocking out. It was shot and directed by a good friend, David Katauskas. He really
Ask OCs Question 1 and Now Accepting!Siara-chan asks: What's Saki's fav color? ^^Ask OCs Question 1 and Now Accepting!1 day ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Saki: I really don't have a favorite color, love. I like all of them. Except black; that color's so depressing.
Hey guys! I know I know I said I'll be accepting any and all questions for my OCs, but so far I only got one. Not to fear, though; they're still open!
Any of the above OCs are available, along with Kani "Brenna" Mukizu, Brandon, Kaede "Brandie" Fuketsu, Katee Awons, and my minor OCs Kiki Minatsu, Makaria, and Mishito Uzumaki.
Please keep in mind with my Naruto OCs: I am up-to-date on the Naruto Manga, including the 700+ Chapters. This means Koinu is no longer eight years old; she's an adult like the others. Also, Inuan and Amia are now dead; they died during the war. Mishito and Saki have gotten together and got married; they now have a daughter named Misaki, who's the same age as Bolt, Naruto and Hinata's son.
Ask away! Feel free to ask about fan fiction events as well
mehanizam slikeRestauracija umjetničkih slika na platnu- Što je potrebno znati?mehanizam slike2 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Ikao se restauratorska problematika i način rješenja mjenjaju od umjetnine do umjetnine, pristup radu i činjenice na kojima se bazira ostaju nepromjenje.Svatko tko daje umjetninu na restauraciju ili je zadužen za nadgledanje izvedbe radova mora poznavati osnovne pojmove, kako bi mogao razumjeti proces .
Mehanizam umjetničke slike na platnu
Mehanizam funkcioniranja slike određuje materijal tj. materijali od kojih je ista sastavljena. A ti su:
1-podloga ili nosioc
u najčešćem slučaju lanano platno, no može se raditi o pamuku,konoplji, juti, svili itd.
-može podnjeti vlagu u odnosu 13% svoje težine
-stabilno na temperaturi od 18C i RV 50-60%
-ne reagira drastično poput pamuka
-nagrizaju ga kiseline, ali otporan na baze
-osnovni sastojak celuloza, ujedno i primarni u
