First of all tracing doesn't encourage your creativity to became a better artist. Tracing is a big problem of art community and none of tutors form art school told us to trace art. If tracing is a form of fundamental thing they teach you at school, then all professor would told us to trace peoples original art, not to use anatomy books to learn a good anatomy and skills of how to draw animals humans and etc. Tracing is NOT a fundamental technical aspect of art, and it's only useful for cleaning up your own rough sketches (which is also the only acceptable use of tracing within art school). It certainly doesn't help young artists develop their own style -- all they're doing is tracing the lines put down by another artist in THEIR style.
Artists that young don't need to worry about style anyway. In art school, style isn't addressed until toward the end
Very Good Story I FoundI just love this story... TOTALLY NOT MINE THOUGH!Very Good Story I Found3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I sat there in English class, I stared at the girl next to me. She was my so called "best friend". I stared at her long, silky hair, and wished she was mine. But she didn't notice me like that, and I knew it. After class, she walked up to me and asked me for the notes she had missed the day before and handed them to her. She said "thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I wanted to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.
The phone rang. On the other end, it was her. She was in tears, mumbling on and on about how her love had broke her heart. She asked me to come over because she didn't want to be alone, so I did. As I sat next to her on the sofa, I stared at her soft eyes, wishing she was mine. After 2 hours, one Drew Barrymore movie, and three bags of chips, she decided to go to sleep. She looked at me, said "thanks"

before that you should look up some informations
you probably noticed that in my work it is often hard to distinguish if im using a zbrush model or just painined it all in photoshop
reason for that is simple.
my realism rendering is greatly based on 3 d rendering processes.
by this i mean as i learned 3d i became aware of the stuff we usually visually take for granted.
qualities of material, importance of reflectivity, ambient occlusion, and subsurface scattering.
to any 3d artist these are everyday terms, while 2d artists usually paint them without often even being aware of wheat they are really doing
for instance , a 3d artist will at any given point use 2 types of shadows. cast shadows from a direct lightsource, and ambient occlusion shadows which naturally appear more intensively the closer planes of an object are together.
i can get into this and make it a long discussion , but easier w

'Don't Feed the Trolls' needs to die.I wish I was joking, but another bout of sexual harassment against women creeped up this week (only days after the Might No. 9 fiasco). This time in the form of an indi video game a woman is trying to get green-lit to Steam. The game is about depression and is just suppose to help people understand what it’s like living with it, and for this “grievous” action she’s been the target of harassment campaigns. She’s received harassing phone calls, death threats, her personal information and addresses posted for everyone to see. She’s had to change her phone number to stop the harassment, and even pulled the game originally to try and calm this crap down.'Don't Feed the Trolls' needs to die.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Bravely, she’s decided to post it anyway and is trying desperately to showcase how awful, hurtful, and disgusting our gaming community can be when we stay silent.
You can “justify” your reasons for hating her. You can convince yourself that sending her harassment and hate messages is for

Not many people know about this style of art, and this includes Indians.
Kalamkari, which literally means 'pen work', are paintings done on cotton textile with vegetable or natural dyes.

Okay! So before I jump in into how Kalamkari is done here, I'll gloss over why you should try it out atleast once in your life.
You'll start this piece from scratch. And by scratch, I don't just mean your own designs; the dyes and the pen are b

After a while, shadow realized the Dark Shadow was surfacing, but it was different than all the previous times because of what Yin had done. All shadow could do was hope it passed quickly, but he had no idea how bad it would really get.How Shadow helped Yin and PBP with the contracts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Shadow throws his head back and screams as he begins to change, and then he blacks out.

Slenderman AttackTwo girls in Wisconsin have been arrested for stabbing a classmate, apparently with the intention of becoming minions of the Slenderman. They were caught walking near a local highway, en route to Wisconsin’s Nicolet National Forest, where they believe the fictitious character lives.Slenderman Attack1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The victim, who was stabbed 19 times, is making a recovery.
All the girls involved are around 12 years old.
That’s all terrible, but what actually irks me more is that a spokesman for the Slenderman creator, and administrator for the website where most fiction revolving around the character is posted, has said "We are not teaching children to believe in a fictional monster, nor are we teaching them to be violent."
I think it’s pretty bad that a person who comes up with a concept has to be afraid of the reaction to how other people use it. Especially children. They’re random, dangerous little buggers.
Think back to your own childhood. What was the stupidest thing you did, and why?
