nobody makes art. there is just stuff.i feel the urge to publish my latest thoughts on the excessively tired topic of what is art and what isn't.nobody makes art. there is just stuff.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
i deem it as a tired topic because it doesn't fucking matter what is art and what is not.
further, i feel like most people's ideas on what art makes art is just backward.
nobody makes art.
nobody makes art.
people simply create stuff they want to create. maybe it's art in their mind.
other people who consume any sort of such creation may deem it art or not in their minds.
whatever anybody has in their mind about any such creations doesn't make nor change those creations.
a painting, photograph, sculpture or song doesn't give a flying fuck whether you consider it art or not.
it won't feel sad if you don't, and it won't change itself in an attempt to become art in your mind.
it is what it is, and that's stuff.
locations don't make art either.
there are museums and galleries that are as full of garbage as they are full of art.
there are also basements, attics and garages fill

End Run | Plot.....End Run | Plot2 years ago in Personal More Like This
160 years before the events of Pokémon as we know the today, the regions were caught in the web of ever rising conflict...
Rival nations, Johto and Kanto, have been competing for centuries. At times the tensions have risen to the waging of wars between them. Bad economics, unscrupulous trade, spreading disease, and idea theft has been enough to spark high tensions between these two.
Recently, an unknown Pokémon (Mew) has disabled all the automated weaponry on both sides. (However machines are still usable, such as cars.) Being stranded without weapons, both countries have seen a lull in war. It has been 30 years since the last all-out war, but there is still enough mistrust within living generations to spark the fire. Moreover, the independent actions of occasional guerrilla fighter skirmishes keep tensions high.
In fear of their neighbouring country, Johto sought out a new form of protection: Pokémon.
Up until now, people lived in fear of Pokémon.

One Reason....... why I try not to comment about people's weight.One Reason...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I used to attend a particular conference on an annual basis, and so I got to (casually) know the other "regulars" who also used to be there. Every year, more or less, I'd see the same group of people at the speakers' dinner, and we could catch up on the usual "what are you up to these days?" kind of stuff. One of the guys I used to see fairly often was a tall heavy-set fellow (some might call him "fat" or "obese") he'd always been tall, bearded, and big, to me. But one year, he showed up and he had lost a lot of weight. It took me a second to recognize him, and I said, "Hey, Rich! You look great! You've lost a lot of weight!" and he looked at me and deadpanned, "Yeah, pancreatic cancer will do that."
Do I need to belabor the point? I will. First off, I set myself up for a massive head-fuck, by making assumptions about what was going on in someone else's life, and - even though I was being friendly about it - I was horribly wro

You've all played the game. But there are still many questions left unanswered. What's the story when the camera turns even the slightest angle away and conceals an entire story; an entire adventure hidden behind the scenes? What data is erased to ensure that this story is untold? What secrets are hidden in the Halo legend?

Well, that was dramatic. Ladies and gents, I have posted the first seven chapters to the Consort Of The Heretic series, including an introduction to Halo to those of you who don't know the Halo story. [WARNING: Spoilers for those who you who try to learn the story while playing the game!]

Here we go people. This list features freelance artists that are available for commission. Some are first timers while others have a long history work. All are worth a look.
I'm unavailable for work while I'm producing my first Rangers Project book, so this is a resource for potential clients. I've screened their galleries and consider them ready to work. If you know anyone looking for artists to commission, feel free to point them here.
I'm still accepting requests if you want to be added to this list, just leave a comment here.

What it means: A feeling of longing associated with displacement, but not necessarily displacement from one’s original home. An intense yearning to be somewhere you are not. Hiraeth also expresses a sort of ache or longing for something of the past, somewhat similar to the notion of "golden" or "good old days," but with more ancient connotations.
Why it needs to be a thing in English: I speak as someone from a country

Ha ha ha, best headline ever.
Good, you opened this journal. Don't worry, no art theft shenanigans have transpired that triggered this entry. I merely want to share my thoughts on "ripping off" and "originality" with you, both as an artist and novelist who's been on the Internet for 12 years.
This is not a rant - it's strictly comical, but also educational. I'm known for my laid-back, funny and matter-of-fact attitude
I'll give you a different point of view today, because if there is something I despise more than art theft, it's people accusing others of it. Anti art theft ninjas, also known as: people who have likely not had enough science in school. They often have no compelling evidence. They often have wrong evidence (even worse). They often do it on a whim, a feeling. And they rarely do it silently, rampaging publicly instead, thus driving a witch hunt.

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.

Animation Job FAQ
Q: How can I get a job in animation?
The absolute best thing you can do to get into animation as a career is to go to art school. Not only will you learn how to draw and how to SEE, you will meet people, students and teachers alike, who will give you new perspectives and will likely be the sources of your future jobs. (My first job came from one of my teachers.)
There are several schools that have fantastic animation programs that cover all facets of the atr form. Schools like the one I attended, CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF THE ARTS, will teach you animation (2D and 3D,) character design, storyboarding, bac

Contours in Context
The argument for the nude in art:
Our visual perception of the human face and then the human body has set the basis since the beginning of
human history for our sense of what is beautiful and what initiates all our seminal ineffable sublime feelings
about the nature of love, life, desire, destiny, eternity, ad infinitum. The curvatures and symmetries of the
human body even lay the geometric basis for the artistic structures of all our art forms, not only for the visual
arts but also for literature and architecture. Given the primacy of the body as the beginning of all that we are
in life, and given the eye as the primary receiver for the collection of all information in our lives, how could
the artistic nude not be a massively represented art form on a global arts forum like deviantART? And besides,

Unleashing Hope! :DYeah...I'm excited about this, just a little bit No, actually a lot.Unleashing Hope! :D1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have been waiting for this fanfiction to come out- well patiently, but still so excited that it's finally here
For those of you that don't know, Unleashing Hope is the sequel to a fanfiction called Letting Go of Hope. It was started by Comix28 on fanfiction.net and then was finished by :iconloor101: , who took this story to whole other level...Audio Narration on Youtube. This took me back to when I was little, listening to audio tapes of books on long car rides when I used to visit my family members two states away. It was a different experience than just reading and watching an animation (which I love both, don't get me wrong ) But this, was something that expanded my imagination on a level that for me being so young at the time, most likely helped my creativity get to where it is today.

Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian t
