this is my final say in the argument against natural born talent vs skill. we all start out by drawing scribbles that slightly resemble things. i was about 3 yrs old here., and had probably already been drawing for some time since i was brought up in a family of artists. drawing only gives back with the time we give to it, and it takes a lot of patience, more needed in the beginning, and a lot of determination to keep at it even though we are continually frustrated.
hope this inspires some of you to keep going, or some of you to start, it will be even better if more of you, my dA friends, stop making excuses saying you werent born with the ability to make your dreams come true. the only thing holding you back is yourself. drawing is but a skill which we learn through lots of practice, determination, observation and patience. if you also have the undenied passion for it, you may see yourself getting further than others.
it also helps if you're able to be ho

So...I'm getting tired of updating the list of links on each new set of folders.
As such, I'm going to make one complete, constantly updated directory here.
Feel free to make your requests here as well. Just leave me the name of the series and the character (they have to be chibi though, they fit better in the folders lol). I actually prefer to do sets as opposed to singles, so don't be shy in requesting more than one. I reserve the right to decline (though I likely won't without good reason.) I can't guarantee they'll get done quickly or at all, but no harm in trying, eh?

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Favorite Art QuotesWe have art so that we may not perish by the truth.Favorite Art Quotes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Life beats down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one.
For me, painting is a way to forget life.
An artist is a dreamer consenting to dream of the actual world.
A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.
While I recognize the necessity for a basis of observed reality... true art lies in a reality that is felt.
The question of common sense is always what is it good for? - A question which would abolish the rose and be answered triumphantly by the cabbage.
James Russell Lowell
Listen carefully to first criticisms made of your work. Note just what it is about your work that critics don't like
Ego vs tirednessThe other day a friend told me that he meet an artist he liked in a con in san diego, and he said to me that he was a real douchebag. I replied to him, does he was all day signing to a lot of people at the both?, did he had pain in his back?, do you catch him running like crazy to the bathroom and you wanted to tell him the story of your life? Did you interrupt him talking to a friend he havent seen in 8 years? When you were talking to him the line was big so he interrupt you to give minutes to the person you didnt see at your back? Did he was sick and taking pills at the booth? Did he receive a call that he wont get paid and got mad? Did a close family member died recently and he just wants to be alone and shows no interest in your talking about Dragon Ball?Ego vs tiredness2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Those are the questions people never make, they just say i talked to him, didnt got the reaction i was expecting, soooooo, he must be a douche.

Reduced to AshesA Phoenix to Arise
If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it.
Today, Lady Gaga’s throne as a reigning pop diva is a 24 carat gold wheelchair, emergency hip surgery forcing the cancellation of her latest tour – a betrayal more devastating for her than for the typical performer, given her relationship with her fans. Her body has finally broken in sacrifice to the needs of her monsters for constant contact and reassurance. The question now is whether this brutal brush with her own mortality will result in the pop goddess pulling back from the edge – or only drive her to new heigh
Why People Hate ArtI found this talk very interesting and absolutely agreeable as it makes some sound arguments against some of the bullshit that's going on in the art world and how to go about remedying it.Why People Hate Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
From the video's description:
"Art is often nothing more than a footnote to a (poorly written) essay making an unsound argument that uses technical and scientific terms inappropriately and without justification in an attempt to apply a veneer of rigour over their steaming pile of banal observations and utter nonsense.
This talk is a criticism of that tendency in the art world.

Dude- why not just take a photo and call it done!When I download a drawing like my latest eye study I get some of this, and it's a good question and one that needs to be thought through by every realist.Dude- why not just take a photo and call it done!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hello, I'm doing some research (not very scientific, I just need some opinions) on photo-realism and I'd like to ask you a question if you don't mind: "why not simply take a photograph or use a 3D program"?
That's a great question and a realist has to answer this for him or herself, If copying without change, construction and re-invention, be it form a photograph or from life, then the creative process is not addressed, in this case I agree there is a useless element about it, it becomes a fundamental exercise at best. There is nothing wrong with these exercises if it improves your knowledge and skills as a technician. But if your aim is only to draw like "a photo", I'm afraid you will never attain what "art" has to offer. Also I think too many photo-realists rely on technical eye candy alone, with no

Quote by Lauren E. Simonutti
“ The misfirings of my beloved/despised mind that conspire to convince me to destroy all have rendered me housebound and led to a solitary life. A creature of past, proof, memory and imaginary friends, I am aware enough to know the things I see and hear are not real, but that does not mean I do not still see and hear them.”

Alex has a plastic gun. Toby is going ARAFDHAJGJ. Robin is confused. Noting makes sense and all is right with the world.
The level of maturity is overwhelming.
They wanted to cosplay outerwear and underwear so they even made Vance and Frey's panties. Not only that, they also made extra ones for me to wear XD
Last but not least, amazing cosplay and photography by KashinoRei and Andy-K. They are in Germany so I wasn't able to meet them at Sakura-con, but hopefully I'll be able to visit a European con in the future
Truly an inspirationFRANCIS TSAI :iconfrancis001:Truly an inspiration8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Been watching him for years, his incredible work, his sense of design. Sadly, i was surprised to see his journal longtime ago, he got a disease that started to attack his body, so he wasnt able to use his hands anymore, but that didnt stop it. He is truly a guy you should admire.
And havent heard from him in a while, he was happy trying to paint in an ipad using his feet. Then a friend showed me a recent video, i was devastated.
I see lots of complains about people that are doing art or even in my case, like my back hurts, my eyes, i cant draw, my tablet sucks, my brushes arent good, i will draw tomorrow i have a lot of time. Complains complains that really are nothing-
You have no excuse to try your best. Francis Tsai its trying his best. He is truly a great artist i just cant matching in WILL, even with a tiny flu i cant draw. He is a real berserk, against all odds he has noe xcuse to continue drawing and painting.
I.I.T.Eyes featureThere is nothing strange when a Muslim makes a contribution for Islam or for Muslims. but when a non-Muslim does that, it raises feelings of admiration and respect among Muslims. and maybe raises eyebrows, confusion and questioning among many non-Muslims. throughout history, many non-Muslims expressed honest and positive opinions and thoughts about Islam. this expression takes different forms. here in deviantART, being an art community, it takes the form of drawing, photography and literature.I.I.T.Eyes feature2 years ago in Personal More Like This
so, I'd like to show my appreciation, support and respect to our brothers and sisters in humanity who are not Muslims, by featuring their Islamic-related works in my journal here. I call it "Islam In Their Eyes feature" or "I.I.T.Eyes Feature" like the title of this journal reads.
This will also allow Muslims to know these people out there and appreciate their work (and who knows, maybe make new friends ) these people who, in spite of being different from Muslims, having different faith, way of
