Artist Identity and Art’s Purpose
A new movie, while only mildly stirring contreversy here in the USA, is causing quite an uproar in England. Anonymous is a big budget Molotov cocktail of a cultural provocation hurled by the producer-director of Godzilla and 2012, Roland Emmerich. He brings the same subtle and nuanced touch he exercised in those films to his latest film, in which he takes up the scorchingly contentious (if little known outside college literature departments) debate ongoing between the “Stratfordians” (those who believe the Shakespeare plays were written by the late-16th Century actor named Shakespeare) and the “Oxfordians” (those who believe the Shakespeare plays were written by Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford

ERMAGERD PEOPLE xD how can you keep commenting into the hundreds when it says the 20 first people to comment gets a feature
--> For each of the first 20 people to comment on this journal, I will feature one of their characters that I choose from their gallery. I'll also tell you what I like about them.
--> If you comment, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!

This time I’m going to talk about a subject that will speak to less people, but I hope it will still be useful to some.
Today's subject is : Digital Art Programs
I have seen enough people who want to start Digital and don't know which program to get. I've also seen enough artists who do not like the program they have or want a change of pace but do not know any other programs to get, or at least none that won’t cost them a kidney (I’m looking at you Adobe ):< ). So today I’m going to list a bunch of programs you can use to create Digital art, with some correct information, pros/cons, and my personal experience.
So, let’s get to it~!

The Creative Juggernaut that is BenHeine
Undoubtedly one of the most prolific, innovative, and exciting artists
exhibiting their work on deviantART has to be the amazing BenHeine.
In terms of sheer creativity and the true spirit of art as human expression that knows no bounds,
he is currently with few peers. His unique visual creations have been featured in newspapers, magazines
and other publications worldwide and over the last few years his works have begun to populate art galleries
and museums from Brussels and London to Turkey, Romania and South Korea.

Devious Journal EntryAfter a day of rage and anger, i was finally home from dealing with shit that normal people wouldnt deal with. I just looked out the balcony for the longest time...and out of nowhere this white dove just landed there, its back facing me. It then turned around, almost curious if what I was staring at, then came close to my face. It then did its little pigeon look, twitching its head from side to side before softly pecking my lips, a bit of hot-pink lipstick got onto its beak and it flew off after a few seconds of the contact.Devious Journal Entry8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Emulation and CreationI write this because I see a lot of this on Deviantart, and a few other places, and have been guilty of it myself way back when, so thought it might be good advice. I use Games Workshop as an example because thats what I have experience in, but it's equally applicable to super-heroes, manga, anime, all the popular genres.Emulation and Creation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I loved drawing since when I was small, so when I came across Games Workshop, obviously I finally found a thing to draw that suited me and what I liked. There was no internet back when I was a kid, at least not freely available internet, so all my influences came from the codex's GW used to bring out. So I basically began to copy John Blanche, Adrian Smith, Mark Gibbons, all those fantasy artists. Harmless enough, it was essential drawing practice at the very least, and schools were never really supportive of that kind of art anyway, it was always paper-mache masks.
I wanted to be an artist for Games Workshop, because thats what I liked. I used to draw that stuf
Ever feel afraid of your work looking the same?Is this just a really weird terror that I have? O_o; Or does this cross anyone else's mind?Ever feel afraid of your work looking the same?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm really afraid of .... drawing what I like. Or I'm afraid that all of my work is of the same thing / stuff / identical compositions / same looking characters. Like I've boxed myself in now. I have a "style."
I think more accurately I'm most afraid of not improving. T____T; I could get comfortable with what I have. I could stop trying new things. I'm afraid of this because sometimes I actually like my art. Other times I find myself thinking I enjoy watercolor and don't want to try anything else - but I know that to improve I have to expand and try new stuff! I've wished for a long time to buy a new computer. One that could ... maybe ... someday ... handle a cintiq. Because digital painting influences my watercolor painting so much. AH but I can't afford a cintiq.
//// Mostly I just find myself feeling entirely useless and lame. I am a working adult, and I still spend time gazing at other artis
The New Street Photographer's ManifestoFebruary 7, 2013/by techgnoticThe New Street Photographer's Manifesto3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Street photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson called it the “decisive moment”— the captured instant when all the photograph’s elements come together to tell a story in a way a text narrative of thousands of words could never begin to. It is what hooks people, both practitioners and advocate-devotees, on the art form. It is uniquely completely immersive in life— step out into the streets— in which the moment of artistic epiphany can never be guessed at until it suddenly happens. When it is properly mastered, it is as pure as the dawn of each new day, as true as the living organism of a teeming street scene catching a breath as one.
It's no easy task to pull a book together for publication and "The New Street Pho
Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!Why don't I get enough freelance work? Are my prices too high? I see these types of questions on Deviant Art a lot. Whether you are just starting out or you have been freelancing for a while, there is a good chance that you can improve your workload and income by applying a little bit of self confidence and assertiveness.Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Don't wait for work to find you. Go find work. Read job ads. Find jobs that suit your skills. Also adapt your skills to match the jobs you find... That's very important. If you can provide a style or service that other artists can't match, that gives you an advantage. Make a list of freelancing sites and other sites with job advertisements. You can find some of them here: http://friendlyhand.deviantart.com/journal/#/d52v4i3 Keep track of which sites provide the BEST job leads for you and visit them regularly. Be prompt when applying for jobs. Some clients will take days to pick an artist but other clients will choose from the first few applicants.

Picasso seeing a seven as an upside down nose?
Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

UpdateSo I took all day for myself yesterday, after getting the day off by stern. Then dad calls up and asks me for forgiveness since he's dying from the liver cancer. He thinks that he will make me cry because I feel bad for him? Nope.Update5 months ago in Personal More Like This
It unphased me.
He mentally torchered me since the day he adopted me at 16, kicked me out of the fucking house and left me to die out in the street. All in the same 3 months.
But though all his fuss and trying to regain my trust back over the phone, I interrupted him and told him that I forgave him since the day he came back into my life and left it so quickly. That's all I could do, since just days before he was harassing me about how stupid I was, bragged about your new family and how my mother was a harlot. So what?
You have no idea how hard I've worked all my damn life. You don't even know me for shit god damn it.
You have no idea how long I've been waiting to tell you that I forgive you for everything you've done to me, dad.

Ewok's are ManeatersThe first time we meet the Ewoks in the series, they capture Luke and the crew, and C3PO translates that basically their intent is they're going to eat them. This is before C3PO gets treated like a God and gets them to let his friends go.Ewok's are Maneaters3 years ago in Personal More Like This
…In the end scene in the movie, they've just defeated the Death Star, blew that son of a bitch sky high, and the Ewoks are having a feast.
…What exactly are the Ewoks eating? There is a xylophone made of storm trooper skulls and chest plates…and they're having a feast.
The Ewoks aren't celebrating the death of the Empire. They don't even understand anything about the socioeconomic structure of the galaxy outside of their little forest. They thought C3PO was a God, so clearly they are unaware of technology. Their celebration wasn't because of Freedom, it was because they just got the motherload of tender human flesh vittles.
That cute little Ewok plushie you had as a kid? You know the one. Wicket? Yeah, that little fucker eats people.

So shit went down like this:
I went in, the orthodontist guy came into the room with like 2 nurses and he tried to look for a vein in my arm and pricked it like 2-3 times until he used his mind and used my vein on the arm man.
I felt a chill on my chin, then laid back and went into some kind of trance.
Buuuut I felt every fucking thing they were doing man ;-;
And what made this shit worse was that the premolar on the left bottom side broke off, and its roots got lodged into my gums and they had to cut through the gums and retrieve it. By this time, I was flipping my shit and stuff xD
But anyways, I'm swollen a bit and a little dizzy and I have four gaps from where my teeth were supposed to be. I also have around 40 stitches from where they fucked up so I'm just here on my couch, watching TV for the first time I'm ever and rinsing every now and then.
