Ukraine Protests!Hey guys I want to ask you something.Ukraine Protests!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want to know if you are pro or against protests in Ukraine. If you haven't heard (which I doubt) there are several protests being held in Kiev because their government didn't agree to sign the stabilization and association agreement with EU.
Many Ukrainians view the accords with the European Union as crucial to a brighter future, with Western-style rule of law that could combat what many view as deeply entrenched public corruption and cronyism among the country’s wealthy elite.
If you have any argument, please share it with us.

President José Mujica of Uruguay
President José Mujica of Uruguay, a 78-year-old former Marxist guerrilla who spent 14 years in prison, mostly in solitary confinement, recently visited the United States to meet with President Obama and speak at a variety of venues. He told Obama that Americans should smoke less and learn more languages. He lectured a roomful of businessmen at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce about the benefits of redistributing wealth and raising workers' salaries. He told students at American University that there are no "just wars." Whatever the audience, he spoke extemporaneously and with such brutal honesty that it was hard not to love the guy. Here are 10 reasons you, too, should love President Mujica.

As in please read it, don't skim it, it's got such great information on both how to become a better artist and how to treat other artists.
TL;DR: Saying "I wish I was as good as you" or "I'll never be as good as you" or something similar is not a compliment. It's a personal lament and many artists can do without it. Thanks.

What if any creator could build a powerful and affordable brain-interface device at home?
Ateam of scientists have raised more than $215,000 on Kickstarter to build a simple Electroencephalography (EEG) device that anyone can use to help “unlock the mysteries of the human brain” by measuring electrical activity inside your head. These brain hackers have a radical vision for the future. The device includes a collection of wearable electrodes, an amplifier that measures the electrical activity in your brain and a built in “signal processing
Jose Mujica: The World's 'Poorest President'President Jose Mujica, the world's 'poorest' president, has surprised the world by making Uruguay the first country to entirely legalise marijuana.Jose Mujica: The World's 'Poorest President'2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A law already passed in the lower house of Congress and expected to pass in the Senate later this year would make Uruguay the first country in the world to license and enforce rules for the production, distribution and sale of marijuana for adult consumers.
Uruguay is hoping to act as a potential test case for an idea slowly gaining steam across Latin America - that the legalisation and regulation of some drugs could combat the cartel violence devastating much of the region.
Mujica's recent speech to the UN General Assembly denouncing excess and frivolity, also received global attention:
"We have sacrificed the old immaterial Gods, and now we are occupying the temple of the Market-God. He organises our economy, our politics, our habits, our lives and even provides us with rates and credit cards and gives us the appearance o
10 Ways to Improve the Quality of our PhotomanipsOn the "decline" of quality in the photomanipulation gallery10 Ways to Improve the Quality of our Photomanips1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've seen a lot of polls, journals, etc. recently about the quality of the photomanipulation gallery and fears that it has declined. I have intentionally not commented, but I will address the issue here. I think our beloved community is going through a "learning phase" where we are rediscovering ourselves and our art. We have a lot-- a LOT-- of new people, and I want to wish them a warm welcome because they are critical to our vitality as a community..
In turn, a lot of our older, more experienced artists have moved on, frequently owing to time constraints due to having more commissions and freelance work.
So, saying our quality has declined is really not fair. Rather, we are in a cycle of change that happens every couple of years within our community.
It is perhaps true that we have reached a collective slump in creativity. Like inspires like, and I see the same thing over and

Every Day is Pancake Day
There seem to be quite a lot of discrepancies in determining the actual date of National Pancake Day.
Internet sources list it variously as February 25 or 26 or September 26. For Christians observing Lenten rituals, “Shrove Tuesday” (on February 17 this year) is “Pancake Day,” the day you gorge on before beginning your fast. The IHOP (International House of Pancakes) should be a determining authority, but their advertising

and I know the hidden pain behind it, I really do.
So, let's talk about how YOU can be good at drawing.
Keep in mind, This is not a "Tutorial" about drawing. This is how I got better at drawing. I noticed some things, that I want to share. This is NOT the "only" way, this is NOT the "right" way and I'm pretty sure that this is not gonna be the "easy" way either.
This is just some "Banana-thief, Bed-jumper, Diaper-monkey" way to get better at drawing.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DRAW?
Anime? Manga? Cartoons? Portraits? Landscapes? Digital drawings? Color Pencils drawings? Illusions? Hyper-realistic drawings? What?

There was once a time when art depicting the lands west of the Appalachian Mountains as pristine wilderness awaiting exploration was censured by church and state as distracting from more important matters of the common pieties of home life. But there have always been those who need visions of grander realms for the journeys they can only dream of experiencing, but that may one day be rest stops on their great–great–grandchildren’s celestial road maps.

"Stupid scavengers," Eleanor said.
I watched the birds, saying nothing for a minute. But then I said:
"They're noble birds of the sea, not stupid scavengers. Look at how beautifully they are colored, the same as the sand and the clouds in the sky. And look at how their beaks are made to stick deep into the sand to burrow for crabs. And look how elegantly they hold their position against the wind, and how they can fly for great distances across the open sea."
We stared at the birds.
"They are beautiful, dad."
"I know, Eleanor. It's a little sad."
"Well, Eleanor, it is because of humans that they are distracted from their noble, original purpose. And what of our original purpose? Are we so much different? Look at us, chasing after cars, money, power, fashion, position. How much different ar
