Happy New YearLet's all start the year off with some stuff I wish I had growing up:Happy New Year7 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I read an article last night on people who are mentally strong and the DO NOTS of being that person.
I took those notes, and listed them, including how I learned to overcome these obstacles. It's a long read, sorry, but I figured this year it's time to open up and share that knowledge that I was once taught by someone I consider my mentor, business partner and bestfriend, Stephan.
1. Don't waste time feeling sorry for yourself - I used to feel this way as a kid. I was a child of divorce, and used it as a crutch when I was younger. I hate a (mentally) abusive step-mom who would constantly take me down. I began to feel that maybe it was true, and I wasn't going to be the person I wanted to be.
You can't think that way. No one likes or enjoys a Debbie Downer. Someone who is constantly on the negative or pining for sympathy. I began to overcome these complications with art or writing. Using tha
production and painting approach to digitapaintingthe production approach vs the painting approach when it comes to digital painting.production and painting approach to digitapainting7 months ago in Personal More Like This
i would like to dedicate this post to emphasize the importance of both these areas. In my opinion an artists should be very clear about practicing and dedicating time to both approaches. But most importantly to keep two different approaches separate. When your in production you do things what ever makes the shot work.When your at home you practice your painting skills to improve as a painter.
So here is how i see these 2 approaches.
1. time, fast paced work for fast moving production
2. realism is achieved easily because you use the element straight away
3.its easier to convey specifics and "WOW" people with a digital image that has a high factor of realism. The viewer sees more detail in context.
1.the skill is not in the painting its about integrating elements and balancing.So it has a lower artistic painters integrity.
2.you bypass practice of certain artistic r

[We were motivated by religion] - TsarnaevHave you ever heard a brutal criminal say "I was motivated by not believing in god to kill these people." Not really a common occurrence, is it? Christopher Dorner was apparently a non-believer, but his actions were obviously not motivated by his non-belief. They were a result of LAPD corruption, a twisted sense of pride, a poor upbringing, and a host of other issues. On the other hand, how many times have the religious fundies openly claimed that they did it for god, or because of god, etc? Case in point, the newest addition to the list are Tsarnaev brothers from Boston.[We were motivated by religion] - Tsarnaev1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
"You can't be moral without god" they say. I can't make such a sweeping statement, but I can make a far more accurate one: "It's more difficult to be stupid without god". It's still easy, but it's just harder to rationalize and validate it internally. The suicide bomber logic: "I'm going to go blow up some random people because my imaginary friend told me so in his holy book."
Not very convincing,

PE: Procrastination and Creativity Procrastination and CreativityPE: Procrastination and Creativity1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
"You can't just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood.
What mood is that?
You are well-aware of the importance of this project, in fact you can't wait to get to it! Too bad you promised your friends to go for a drink, and then there's that movie. Also, your productivity is at its strongest at Midnight, first Tuesday after the Full Moon, starting earlier would be a waste of time. Make sure you are well-rested! After all, is there a better way to prepare yourself for a productive tomorrow than an enjoyable today?
Your diagnosis: Procrastination positive.
"Someday is not a day of the week."
