You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to grey
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on
You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces everytime

Artistic Limitations?Thankyou to all those who shared their stories and opinions on my last journal, I haven't gotten around to replying to everyone but I have read every comment.Artistic Limitations?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Another topic I want to discuss? A bit of a dead-horse? but then again I haven't really had a chance to talk much about this issue and I would like to hear other peoples opinions and whether or not they agree or disagree.
Overtime I have noticed an attitude regarding artwork and peoples means of determining how talented and skilled an artists is. By this I mean people have an attitude that if an artwork doesn't feature correct anatomy or the artists doesn't practise realism then they are a novice and are limiting themselves artistically. I have lost count on how many comments I have gotten along the lines of " your art is good, but I think its time to move on to more professional stuff, start doing some still life, portraits and landscapes". Obviously I encourage going out of your comfort zone and drawing stuff you wouldn't usual
Zoo & Aquarium PhotographyWhile photographing on location, many people have asked me how I capture action shots and how to avoid reflection when shooting through fences or glass windows at zoos and aquariums. If you follow these simple steps, I can promise that youll get better results on your next trip to a zoo/aquarium:Zoo & Aquarium Photography8 years ago in Personal More Like This
Check your camera equipment. Set your camera to ISO 100 or 200 for still subjects and ISO 400 (800 if necessary) and apply burst mode (if available) for action shots. If you have a lens hood use it to block unwanted light. Use a monopod or a tripod to minimize camera shake. Telephoto zoom (for outdoors) and macro (for aquariums) lenses are recommended for SLR users. Turn off digital-zoom feature on non-SLR cameras.
Spend time to study your subjects. Wild animals are unpredictable, but sometimes theres a pattern to their daily activities while in captivity. Note the paths they tak

The Challenge, the Romance and the Inspiration of the Natural World
Since human beings harnessed the secret of fire the natural world has been seen by many
only in terms of how best it can be exploited of its abundant riches. It’s amazing now to
look upon the desert sands of the Arab lands and know that this place, the cradle of earliest
civilization, was once known as “The Fertile Crescent.” All Europe was once one great forest –
until all those trees were needed to create the naval armadas of dueling empires. Only the
Earth’s natural forces, like earthquakes, have been more destructive and wasteful than humanity.
“The Romantics” were a movement of poets, painte

The Concept List Challenge
Some of you have noted that I often mention my concept list in the Artists Comments of deviations. Yes, there is an actual list. And yes, I have been essentially going down that list and doing every concept that I can. However, I get distracted easily either by new concepts or butterflies so Im still not even close to finishing this list. And as I figure, I probably will not finish conceptualizing all these ideas unless I get a little help
So now, here is the challenge for you:
Pick any of the concepts listed below and conceptualize it in any way you want in any medium you choose (photography is preferred but all mediums are accepted)

Creating Grindhouse PostersIve been asked by some people about how I went about creating some of these Grindhouse posters I have made. So I thought I would point out some guidelines I tend to follow to help anyone who fancies making them on their way...Creating Grindhouse Posters5 years ago in Personal More Like This
(PS this is a guidline for making them in Photoshop, but should apply to all image editors)
...The most important things with these Grindhouse style posters are:
1) the Typography. Get your type right and the rest falls into place really easily. You can't go wrong with Aachen Bold really. avoid the cliche "destroy" and "grunge" fonts, they stick out like anything. You can get away with making a poster completly out of type sometimes! So have fun with it! There are no real rules about fonts. Be as cliche and cheesy as you want! Just avoid thin serif fonts and comic sans of course!
2) Choose a limited colour palate, 3 colours max usually. If you think about printing costs back then on a mass scale, pre-digital, they could only really afford screen printing with lim

Beacon is Coming!Okay Two Door Cinema Club fans! The long-awaited day is here! (Well not HERE here but it will be soon!) TDCC is releasing a new album called Beacon which will be available in stores starting September 3rd! Here is what lead singer Alex Trimble had to say about Beacon: "Beacon is a much more intimate record than our first, but at the same time, it's much bigger and more inclusive. Trying to find that balance has been our goal for a long time and this record takes us one step closer to the band we've dreamt of becoming." - Alexander James Trimble So we indie listeners can rejoice and revel in the greatness that is Beacon!

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.
