IS ART SCHOOL BAD?? 0_OBTW THIS IS LONG ASS POST , BUT ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ THIS IS IF YOU ARE A PERSON CONSIDERING ART FOR A CAREERIS ART SCHOOL BAD?? 0_O2 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: I ADDED NUMBER 3 IN CAUSE THAT WAS KIND OF AN IMPORTANT LESSON TOO. HAHA
Usually I am pretty quiet when it comes to the community and its dealings with drama . But I feel like I have to write my two cents about this topic.
A lot of people have been throwing around this post around about how art schools are terrible and are not worth it ya. I am sure you can find the article somewhere if you just google it . Though everyone is entitled to their own opinion I feel that I should talk about both sides of the coin when it comes to art school.
Now I have went to art school , and have done well for myself , I have worked internationally and worked for some big companies , and currently at the moment I actually teach at an art school as well.
SO THE ULTIMATE QUESTION: IS ART SCHOOL A WASTE OF TIME?
WELL THERE IS NO BLACK AND WHITE ANSWER
What I believe is that art school i
Regarding unemployment / Freelance *UPDATED*From the polycount discussion over here: http://www.polycount.com/forum/showthread.php?t=113798Regarding unemployment / Freelance *UPDATED*2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get the sense that some HR people (& immigration) look at 'not working inhouse' as being unemployed - mainly because it's so hard to prove exactly how long you were *actually* working on freelance.
If I was to look at it that way, then I've been unemployed for periods of up to 3 years.
I got over worrying about money and financial problems back when I had little to no money to worry about - and I think that's helped me to no end. Life seemed to be stuck on replay when I was in that frame of mind i.e. creating stuff because I HAD to get a job. Years would go by, and it never ever worked out for me, somehow I'd always end up in exactly the same place until I put in the time to find something I enjoyed, and simply worked at that no matter where it took me.
I have friends on my list who have been without a job or freelance work for ages, but they are also the same guys who don't have

Of Angels and Demons Vol. 1
“Hush, my friends. Let me tell you of those gods whose lore has left our lands, of the long–dead songs of angels and demons; let your hearts brave the ill–luck of broken vows and breathe the influx of borrowed spells. Walk with me on the winds of a victory of kings, and tell me now: whose flock will be crushed under the blow of defeat? Will you bathe in the white solace of the banners of salvation, or burn in the fiery fire of the warriors of damnation?”

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.
Leslie Neilson (1926-2010)Today is a sad day because as of November 28th, 2010. Actor Leslie Neilson has died at the age of 84. Some of you might remember Leslie in such films like the Airplane movies or even in the Scary Movie series among other things. As a Canadian, it's sad to lose a national symbol. As a lover of cinema, it is even worse as Neilson himself was a very great actor. Perhaps the films he was in weren't as great, but he was always the center of attention.Leslie Neilson (1926-2010)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I say, it's been a good run. Leslie. You've put a smile on my face many times and I am sad to see you go. At least you can brag that you lived a full life and hadn't dropped at the age of 50 like Bernie Mac or Micheal Jackson.
Off you go, Neilson. Up to that big airplane in the sky...

It can be tough to choose a favourite of anything when there's so much to choose from that you like. This is no different. It was difficult to choose my favourite piece this issue, but I did decide.
I love this piece that Mac25 has created. It took 2 months and not a single second was wasted here. It's just brilliant. I've seen a lot of hair in my days as a deviant in just 7 months and there are so many that don't look realistic enough. This piece is not the case, the hair looks so realistic, it flows and each single hair is drawn. There's more too. The facial structure looks realistic, the lighting and shadows compliment the piece

(Cover may change on final product)
it's called Umasu! but the whole title is actually Umasu: Star Boxing Champion. the star Boxing Champion wasn't added in the title since it isn't really about her being the star Boxing Champion. which is just a title she earned from winning in a universal tournament being considered the strongest in the universe. that's what 'star' stands for in the title. this game is going to be executed through MMF2(multimedia fusion 2) I actually started to get a hang of it. so it would probably be my primary software when making games.
