The Three problems with how we learn art: pt.3I've been thinking about how and why we learn to draw for a few years now. I started self-analazing my own drawing and character design thought process when I began writing my first art instruction book, "Creating Characters with Personality". It was harder than I thought to verbalize how I've learned and how I process drawing. This has led me to start looking back at my artistic life and how I learned art. What made me learn the most? What drove me to draw and stick with it? What led to others I knew as a child to stop drawing? I think I'm ready to present some of those thoughts here on DA and hear what you think. This is part 2 of three in a series. I'm not sure where this is leading, but step one is my establishing an online art instruction school called Taught ByA PRO (http://www.taughtbyapro.com) that will (in phase one) concenThe Three problems with how we learn art: pt.31 year ago in Personal More Like This
2D + 3D CommissionsHello, you arrived at my Commisions page2D + 3D Commissions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are interested in getting a CGI image created for you, please continue to the section you are interested in. There are three sections:
2D section covers all kind of colored, shaded images, preferably drawn with outlines.
3D works is about polygonal objects of all kinds, textured and with some post-processing for nice looks.
Vector images refer to things drawn with hard lines and occasional shading, such as blueprints and ink-like drawings.
I do all kinds of art and I'm opened to different styles (vector drawings of a Star Wars ship, 3D render of a Stargate vehicle, blueprint for a Dune tank and of course every kind of original universe objects and scenes) so don't be afraid to ask for anything that you can think of.
You can also check examples of my commisioned work and private gallery works on the bottom of this entry.
I am looking forward to working with you and seeing a happy finish

The Hunger Games: An Accidental Statement of Protest?
Catching fire by Kris-Kamikakushi
In Bangkok, Thailand, students are being arrested for raising their hands in the air to flash Katniss’ three–finger “freedom” salute.
That’s right, the Katniss who’s the fictional heroine of the popular dystopian sci–fi “Hunger Games” movie series. The world has changed over the last few decades in a very big way, but some are apparently unaware of it or undisturbed by the stunning ramifications.
Religion is a Mental Disorder?And atheists wonder why they're the most distrusted group in America? It's crap like this, atheists!Religion is a Mental Disorder?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently, a YouTube atheist called Livelife8072 started a video series in which he explains how religion is a mental disorder. What's even more face-palmingly painful is that he openly admits at the beginning of his video that he's not a medical professional and that he's merely expressing his opinion--and yet he still expects us to take his "analysis" seriously!
And what does his non-expert medical "analysis" consist of? Well, other than providing anecdotal evidence, and starting every other line of dialogue with "I think" or "I believe", he compares people dancing and singing in church to mental patients in a insane asylum.
Clearly this man is en route to obtaining a Nobel Peace Prize!

Cyclists are bullshit. If you like to ride your bike, that's fine. Exercise is good. But please, for the LOVE OF GOD, do it on a fucking BIKE PATH.
Whenever i'm driving in this one area of my neighborhood that has this perfectly convenient bike path, every single time there seems to be some asshole cyclist who feels that they own the road, that believes bike paths are for pussies, and rides their bike in the middle of the road, which inevitably slows down the driver behind them cuz they don't want to run over the inconsiderate bastard. Just the other day i'm driving along, and there's this asshole cyclist just in front of me, slowing me down, when there's a perfectly good bike path just to the right!

Until now, I’ve tried to avoid this group having posts related to psychometrics two months in a row, because it’s a secondary topic compared to this group’s main topic of evolution. But last month, there has been an unusual situation that I think requires an exception to this rule. Our featured topic last month was an obituary for J. Philippe Rushton, the psychometrician and evolutionary psychologist who died on October 2nd. And now, less than a month after Rushton’s death, there has been the death of another researcher in this field who was far more important than Rushton: The U. C. Berkeley psychologist Arthur R. Jensen, who I previously mentioned in this post from February.
To me, it is difficult to imagine it could have been a coincidence that Rushton and Jensen died only 20 days apart, especially conside

High FlightOh! I have slipped the surly bonds of EarthHigh Flight3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .
Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

Explain Cabbage..A forgotten fruit, all clad in veils,Explain Cabbage..1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So lonely in its mystery.
Its green skin tingles, shrouded in cloth,
A favorite of none, except for me.
I pity it, an odd recluse,
Similar to none in the family.
Its shield is thin, the mask could break,
And yet the mask is all we see.
It could be beautiful, if it tried,
Yet it hides in the leaves, afraid to be.
But oh, how curious, when we remove its leaves,
And cook it, it becomes a delicacy.

The Elder Scrolls: The Second Great WarTen years after the Dragon Crisis had ended a new threat endangered the people of Tamriel. The faction known as the Aldmeri Dominion looked to wage war on the humans of Tamriel, starting with taking Cyrodiil, home of the fading Empire.The Elder Scrolls: The Second Great War3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Emperor! They have taken Blackwood." said a messenger panting as if he had run all the way from Blackwood to the Imperial City. "Then war is upon us. Ready the men." proclaimed Titus Mede III, current Emperor of Tamriel. The Empire now only consisted of Cyrodiil and High Rock. "And see if Ulfric Stormcloak will answer our call for aid." Two days later in Windhelm Ulfric, High King of Skyrim called an important meeting on whether or not his Stormcloak army would join the war. In attendance were Delphine and Esbern leaders of the now restored Blades, the other eight Jarls of Skyrim, Aela the Huntress representing the Companions, Karliah representing the small but powerful Nightingales and Dovahkiin, the Dragonborn who rid Tamriel of Dragons.

The Inherent Degeneracy of GamergateIn a world where unarmed, innocent people are murdered freely by authority figures, slavery is at an all-time high, someone opens fire on an American school almost every month and people die from inadequate, needlessly overpriced health care, some people think the biggest and most upsetting issue in our society is about video game opinions.The Inherent Degeneracy of Gamergate4 months ago in Personal More Like This
And, unfortunately, these people create a serious issue. Despite the fact that they rally around a fundamentally trivial and pointless cause, their furious and aimless harassment of others has become something worth talking about.
If you ask a Gamergater, they'll tell you that their fight is over "dishonesty in journalism." That's a pretty big fight. Journalistic bias has convinced Americans that climate change might not even be happening, that minorities commit more crime than whites and that we actually have any reason to be dropping bombs on the Middle East. Mainstream media is a clusterfuck of biases and sensationali-wait, what's that? Ga

January 19 marks the birthday of Paul Cezanne in 1839.
By the time of his death in 1906, he was recognized, especially by younger artists, as the genius who began his career under the tutelage of impressionist Camille Pissarro, and then went on to become the “architect” who reduced the subjects of his paintings to cylinders,
Why Paint Missing Children?A little girl I knew was abducted.Why Paint Missing Children?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was very affected emotionally, and when I looked around my home town in the following days, I finally noticed all of the little fliers asking for help finding missing children. ( In America there are 1,500 missing child cases open every day. The fliers are often printed on the backs of coupons and are distributed as junk-mail.)
I just began saving the fliers, and after a year had a drawer full of them: Disposable mailers with tiny monochrome photos of missing children. It didn't seem right that these faces were so small and bland.
One night, out of nowhere, I was inspired to paint a full color portrait from one of the cards. As an artist, the question was this: How does a person paint a portrait of a missing child? I could not just approach it like an illustration. I could not just go about it as if it were a polite painting.
I began by putting away my brushes. They were too smooth. Too pretty. Too controllable. Instead, I began using palette knives
The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)Howdy friends,The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There has been an exciting development!
A couple of months ago, the folks at Chaosium Inc. [ http://www.chaosium.com/ ], the publishers of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, confirmed their desire to publish The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers). When I received word I immediately began revising the now almost two-year-old text and illustrations to ensure that the print version is of the highest possible quality. I am currently about a third of the way through this process, and thought it would be good time to let you all know that the oft-requested dead tree edition of this story looks like it is actually becoming a reality.
I continue to be grateful for the encouragement of the folks around here, and I look forward to updating you all with any further news as it arrives.
In the meantime, I'm posting up the pages of The Statement of Randolph Carter (for beginning readers) I was working on when the word came through from Ch
