i have seen in my life many artists who proclaimed they want to develop their skills, and kept bashing on everyone and everything on the way....and for some reason those guys never got anywhere...
here is why..
there is a value to different approaches, different styles. realism, manga , cartooney disney, my little pony, furries....don't waste your time tryint to bash any of the stuff you don't personally like
you are missing out, bigtime!
see there is a reason why that stuff is popular. and by that i mean on the visual side. so instead of flaming , trolling and bashing, try understanding the inner workings of it.
here are some specific examples
realism- it is a wonderfully complex base , reflects one's skill in capturing reality, but in it there are differences between photo referenced, real life work and no reference. ALL HAVE THEIR VALUE AND IMPORTANCE! from photos you can learn alot, gain analytic skills, develop an attention to
Bayonetta 2 Concept Arts******Concept Arts of 'Bayonetta 2' by Mari Shimazaki*****Bayonetta 2 Concept Arts7 months ago in Personal More Like This
''First, let’s talk about Bayonetta, the “modern witch”, and this game’s main character. Those who played the previous title are likely to notice that her trademark hairstyle has been given a complete makeover. After talking with Hashimoto and Kamiya, the three of us came to the conclusion Bayonetta’s not the kind of girl who’d show up with the same hairstyle for her sequel. A girl can be known to change her hairstyle depending on her mood, so I guess Bayonetta was in the mood for something short. Still, knowing her, there’s no telling when she’ll decide to change it again.
Bayonetta’s overall theme this time is “Solid.”
"She’s still wearing black, and I think her shorter hair gives her a generally more masculine look. While her design in the last game focused on curves, this time we see more straight lines. All of her accessories follow this, exc

Supers V Wonder by JoshJ81
The collective fan community sigh of relief that a female director has been chosen to bring the Amazonian Goddess to life on the big screen has been echoing across the web ever since Monday’s announcement that Michelle McClaren had won that coveted crown. Here at DA HQ, we can’t help but imagine what Joss Whedon might have done with the character.
Pray no one involved in the Catwoman movie gets close to it.

With that track record, you'd think a person of (at least) average intelligence, like me, would have steered clear of the game.
I did not.
Lets see what I've done in San Andreas today: I've not shot any Elk because of the insta-death mountain lions, I've driven off a foot high cliff and exploded in a manner that would suggest the chassis of crappy rust bucket I was driving had been crafted from uranium, I've been knocked over in the road and then continuously mown down by other vehicles until dead, I've watched the player-character casually start walking around a vehicle to enter it despite the urgency implied by both my hammering of the control pad and the sh*tloa

Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and realityReboot of Tomb Raider franchise was probably the most heatedly discussed topic over the last 4 years. We didn’t know if it would become a success or yet another fail, but there was one thing that was clear as a day – fandom split in two. One group supported and firmly believed in the reboot. The other group hated and resented the idea of it claiming that Lara Croft is dead for them now.Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and reality2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Now the game is out. It IS a success. Franchise that was on a razor edge before was saved. But there is one question that remained unanswered – did people who resented reboot change their mind or they just receded in the dark mourning over the character that is dead for them now.

It’s still early days, so I’m afraid I can’t provide any further details for now save my assurance that we’re not resting on our laurels and acclaim from Tomb Raider’s recent successes, but working hard to raise the bar even higher and re-affirm the faith you’ve shown."

One dead console.My XBox 360 died last night.......again.One dead console.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was merrily replaying Modern Warfare 3 and was on the final mission when the screen went funky. Now, this happened 3 or 4 years ago, so I knew what was going to happen; I turned the console off in the hope that a reset would solve the funky-screen issue, but rather than a clear image - I get no image at all.
It's a known problem, especially with the first generation of 360 machines and as mine is a "Launch Team" version (If you worked for M$ at the time, they gave you a special edition one with green plating) it certainly falls into that category.
Something to do with the cheap, shoddy soldering used by M$.
Looks like I'll be better off just replacing it with one of the new streamline models, which is a shame, because last time I got my current one repaired I also had it pimped out with these awesome green internal running lights that made it look nuclear-powered or something

UNEARTHED - ATHENAIn today's segment of Unearthed, we're going to doing research and studying of the relic picked up in Tomb Raider: Anniversary, the Athenian Owl Figurine and the history behind it's creation.UNEARTHED - ATHENA1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
In Greek mythology, the owl is commonly associated with the goddess, Athena as the owl's own symbol represents cunning and wisdom. Daughter of Zeus and Metis, Athena is the goddess of courage, civilization, law and justice, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, inspiration and wisdom as well as skill.
Athenian Owl Figurine found in the Palace of Midas in TRA.
Athena is one of the most powerful gods in Greek mythology as her power is close to that of Zeus and in fear, he contemplated destroying his own daughter at one point.
Athena commonly helped many ancient heroes of Greece, including Heracles, Jason, Perseus and Odysseus. While not one for violence and fighting, Athena sought better means to deal with conflict and resolved issues with wisdom. And conflict
More Thoughts on New 52 Wonder WomanI have to admit i haven't cared much for the New 52 Wonder Woman that has been provided by Brian Azzarello, even if it has been hailed as an excellent run by many. Diana herself has been... okay, bland but okay. Then again, it shouldn't be that hard to get Wonder Woman reasonably accurate in feel ( anymore than Batman or Superman ).More Thoughts on New 52 Wonder Woman2 months ago in Personal More Like This
In fact i would argue the only reason this story run was so seemingly successful and lauded was due to Cliff Changs artwork, that apparently blinded readers to the writing. Had the artwork been provided by Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, or an artist of similar cloth, i don't think the title would have been given the same level of praise, and it would have received more criticism.
Among the disappointing things done were the alterations to Diana's origin. In the old DC Universe, Diana was formed from clay by her mother Hippolyte ( or Hippolyta ) and given life by several of the Primary Greek Goddesses ( and the minor God Hermes, so it is worth noting she wasn't devoi
