May 2013 - 31 day PAINTING challenge!UPDATE:May 2013 - 31 day PAINTING challenge!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This challenge was certainly a great experience for me. I made some mistakes that cost me a lot of time, for example sometimes I spent 5 hours on a piece that turned out wrong and instead of moving on I took a new paper and tried to make new work within the remaining hour or so. During second week, I've decided to keep the scrap works a part of my challenge, even though I won't publish them they still appear as a thumb on my challenge table. It's simply not possible for me to do 7 good pieces sometimes. Also, posting every day took way too much time to keep up, so I've decided I will be publishing remaining artworks through June continuously.
What I learned during this project of mine? It gave me a better idea about how much time I spend on one piece and what amount of time I waste on post-production. I had to make a few arrangement that hopefully make me more effective today. But mostly, I've tried new subjects that I totally LOVE, mostly architecture and flow

George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Ray Bradbury…
Names like these get tossed around as examples of writers whose dystopian predictions of the future have come true in one way or another. Of possible candidates from our own time whose names might be added to this list, surely none is more worthy than Margaret Atwood. Atwood starting writing when she was six years old, despite not being enrolled in school full-time un

When inspiration is far to be found...We all get these anoying times when we really want to make something cool, get inspired and work that magic. We see everyone around us (online) do it, but how come we are not?When inspiration is far to be found...7 months ago in Personal More Like This
So we look for ways to get inspired, we ask around, find these usual answers: go watch a film, listen to music.. take a walk...
But even when we do that, we still end up stuck most of the time.
Part of the solution is knowing WHY we get stuck and this is my theory.
ADT - Attention Deficit Trait.
'Experiencing an inner frenzy of distractability, impatience, difficulty in setting priorities, staying focused and managing time. Those are our biggest enemies as they all end up cluttering your head and keeping you from spending quality focused time on a singular topic.
Everything we do now a days is based around multitasking and it is giving us a constant overdose of information. Let me elaborate.
How many of you travel daily by public transport and don't look away

Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!Years and years ago, at the beginning of my illustration career, a veteran illustrator got mad at me, and at a number of my colleagues, for charging too little. We all protested loudly. "But, dude," we said, "we are not veterans like you, with years of experience and stunning portfolios to back us up. We are newbies, and we need to eat, too, so we'll take what we can get. We're not in direct competition with you, so why do you care?" Then, we added, with great smugness, "Oh, and our rates are the current industry standard, so pthbbbbbt!"Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Except more than a decade's gone by, and I see that my colleagues and I are now veterans, with our own pretty portfolios and lengthy CVs. We have become the indignant illustrator's direct competitors, and we're not earning that much more than we were at the start of our careers. We're certainly not getting what he did, at the height of his. And we did this to ourselves. Oh, sure, we're not solely re

Of Angels and Demons Vol. 1
“Hush, my friends. Let me tell you of those gods whose lore has left our lands, of the long–dead songs of angels and demons; let your hearts brave the ill–luck of broken vows and breathe the influx of borrowed spells. Walk with me on the winds of a victory of kings, and tell me now: whose flock will be crushed under the blow of defeat? Will you bathe in the white solace of the banners of salvation, or burn in the fiery fire of the warriors of damnation?”

Setting and PromptsKamenoko University takes place in present day, present time Tokyo with a bit of fictional embellishments. Your character attends Kamenoko University which isn't prestigious by any means and quite ordinary compared to the likes of Tokyo U, Kyoto U, Waseda, to say a few. The city itself is pretty much the same as what we have in the real world, and so is the entire world. Whatever is plausible in reality is definitely so in roleplay and you are only shackled by the very rules that governs the real world.Setting and Prompts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kamenoko University is a normal-sized university with about 40 000 students and no specific speciality, though alumni and seniors will have probably learned it originated as a predominantly school of science. There are all kinds of faculties, language, science, culture, politics, sports, medicine, art, etc. Students are around 19 to 25 years old, a few ones might be older, if they failed their exams over and over again or decide

Difficult Choices... because life is a funny thing XDDifficult Choices2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm sure everyone, no matter what your profession/age/culture, has felt lost and low once or twice in their lifetime.
I can't exactly say I feel lost, if anything, I'm very much clear on what I want and how I should go about achieving it... but I am feeling incredibly low because I know I am not ready so I can't get there yet.
It's a silly notion really, thinking yourself inadequate or lacking but it is something we've all felt sometimes, especially when you are working really hard but the results are difficult to see.
I am stuck in one of those patterns right now, have been for the past year, where you work hard for the sake of getting work done and fail to stop and really see what it is you are doing, wheatear it is beneficial or not.
Yup, working hard for the sake of working... somewhere along the way, I stopped working smart and if life has taught me anything - that is an easy but BIG mistake to make.

KEEP ON READING OR YOUR EYES WILL IMPLODE.
One day, humon was surfing the internet.
She was just looking at her favorite pages when all of a sudden a new tab opened up.
She was confused, since she didn't click on any link whatsoever. The tab didn't show anything, just a white screen. When she tried to close the tab, nothing happened. She kept pressing the X to close it, but instead the tab turned to full size. Suddenly, the white screen of the tab turned completely black.
It wasn't only the tab screen that turned black, all the button and everything else on her screen did the same.
Even her mouse disappeared off the screen.
After a little while, she decided to turn her computer off because she simply thought it was broken.
This was a fatal mistake.
Out of nowhere, a full screen picture of :iconcaptainfanclub: appeared on the black screen.
It was most unexpected.

The following eight collages from the Mixed Collage Folder cover a wide range of approaches to collage making and to interpreting and presenting figures and faces.
A folded and forgotten photo. Scratched LPs. A mysterious, ancient Mexican mural. Francis Bacon as muse. Strong blocks of color set off by delicate line work and rich textures. Non-human figures challenge and mock. Tight cropping holds emotions.
