Life has ways of doing just that & the quicker one comes to grips with that, the blow is lessened when it's delivered...
Someone close to you follows their dream & uproots, leaping headlong to capture it, leaving you to follow your own path...
Someone stops lying to themselves about who they are & embraces their true nature & is assimilated into the culture that surrounds their liberated persona...
Someone puts honor & patriotism higher than they ever have & is flung worlds away from you to protect the country they love...
Someone feels as they were always a lone wolf to begin with & exercises this to the full extent ...and disappears....

Propaganda I by Yuujakumi
The Comfort of Mindless Obedience
When is information true and useful and when is it just “propaganda?” Why in fact is an image or phrase or animated art sequence “propaganda” rather than it simply being a “lie?” What about acceptable lies that define our society as much as they degrade it - - for example commercials that obviously hype a product with untruths or political advertisements full of unachievable platitudes.

Friday Feature : WoW RefreshSo, World of Warcraft is updating its characters, and whether you play WoW or not, it's kind of a big deal.Friday Feature : WoW Refresh10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
As games age, technology moves forward. Developers can do better work faster and with a lot more wiggle room in terms of Tech requirements, and during the lifespan of a successful MMO, adjustments need to be made. Most companies in the MMO market have not lasted long enough to truly require these changes, but Blizzard has. Like them or not, they are a company that cares about consistent and coherent art. As new updates get pushed out the door, the old work starts to look worse and worse, and the overall look of the game begins to suffer. Thankfully, Blizzard has injected a bit of life into its tired old starting races.
While this update might not bring back the people who left WoW, it will certainly make the existing players a lot happier, and provide us with some inspiration for our own work.

What do do as an artist in training.There are many ways to Rome they say. But I find most aspiring artists lost and asking me for guidanceWhat do do as an artist in training.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
and this is what I tell them.
Find out for yourself what you really want to do with art, there are so many different professions.
Graphic designer, Concept artist (mobile and high end), Illustrator of bookcovers, or card games.
Once you can make your pick, or at least pick 1 or 2 you must find the best work on the market in those fields.
Find out what makes the best art of your favorite field the best art. What do they paint? How do they paint it? With knowing this you can find out about the things you need to study.
The most basic study aims are the following:
What forms of light art there? And how does it influence things?
The book Color and Light by James Gurney will give you a lot of insight.
How do you paint shapes? How do you light them the right way?

Save the Boob-plate!The reason for making this journal entry is because there is something that has been on my mind since the past three months. And not on my mind alone as it seems more artists are confronted with the same thing I'm about to say. While in most cases time dissipates the issue in my mind this time it is something that keeps bugging me over and over again to a point it irritates the hell out of me.

This journal entry is all about judgmental journalism, offended-by-design opinionators and the fearsome white knights that the first two bring in its wake. Surely this is something that has existed since the first written word on the internet, and for as long men could express their thoughts behind a pseudonym charade.
Recent events and a large exposure to unhealthy criticism had gotten me thinking and checking with my fellow artists. I'm sure people will say that as an artist we should learn how to deal with harsh and
Concept Art, Byzantine Icons, and WhatnotRight now I’m reading a book on Byzantine religious art called ‘The Sensual Icon’. It’s enlightening in some deeply strange ways. It seems to me that a lot of art history gets things wrong, at least at the survey level. Ancient and medieval art is tacitly presented as if it were modern, but older. Hang it on the wall in an evenly lit room with a name, date, and likely attribution. It was never meant to be seen like this, whether it was a plastered skull from Catal Huyuk, or a gold bas relief of an archangel from the Hagia Sofia. The angels look walleyed and stupid in electric light, but in something harsher than the flames of candles the central effect is lost. It’s like the gilt and silvered glass of Versailles: Shadow is needed to sculpt the light. In daylight these things are too shiny, too soft in profile, and too delicate in color. It’s like Liberace had a yard sale. Placed in the deep night however, and the warm glow of small open flames bringsConcept Art, Byzantine Icons, and Whatnot5 months ago in Personal More Like This

LammasFirst fruits of a strange harvest. In another week, I will have been here five years, having left behind all I knew and could not carry with me. It seems extremely perverse that success carries such a sense of loss with it, but stasis really isn’t an option for the living. Perhaps the emptiness holds some new potential within it, some novel germination of emotions and ideas after fire blackens the mind. In the end, the obligations of the professional entertainer are a blessing. Got to keep going, because what else are you going to do?Lammas1 month ago in Personal More Like This

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta

Phil Fish Hacked
Phil Fish, the creator of FEZ, is pretty much universally hated by people online. Recently he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, creator of Depression Quest, who was herself under fire from internet thought police for “corrupting” games journalism’s integrity by sleeping with journalists to get favorable reviews of her game (allegations which later proved to be untrue). Because he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, Phil found himself under a massive internet attack, wherein hackers compromised his SSI, passwords, Polytron's PayPal account, and other sensitive data.
In the wake of the attack, Phil Fish is now selling off the rights to FEZ and to Polytron. He left with this rather depressing twitter message: “I
