Foot Fetish and advertising (II)Foot Fetish and advertising (II)2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Do you remember this post I wrote a while ago?
I just wanted to share with you this lovely picture I found on a poster in the streets of an Italian city I happened into while traveling (lucky town I'd say, if all the advertisement has the same trends XD).
The advertised "product" was something having to do with urban public transport rates or something... so, again, nothing to do with feet at all.
Differently from the pizza scene, this didn't even involve computers at all, so the need to show a model laying on the floor like that was totally out of place.
But still, I find it absolutely lovely.
And not only because she seems to own a pair of extremely beautiful feet, with even some delicious, slightly dirty heels (as you can see in this detail pic I took)...
...but also because I prefer 1000 times better this kind of advertising, with a simple girl, casually dressed, with her lovely feet
Bullshit myths about feminism.I know, I know. Going all ideological on you guys is a little a-typical for me, and perhaps (I hope) I'm preaching to the choir. But I've been noticing a lot of negativeness around the word and (more importantly) the ideology of feminism, and a lot of that seems to be based on misinformation or misunderstanding. This might not be the best place to fix any of that, but I felt like chipping in anyway. It beats doing nothing, right?Bullshit myths about feminism.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, here's some of my "favorite" bullshit myths:
Bullshit Myth: Feminists think girls are better than guys.
Feminism isn't Misandry! Feminists don't hate guys, or think women are better than guys. In fact, that idea is the other opposite of what it's really about : equality.
When extreme feminism turns into Misandry it stops being feminism, as they are fighting against the very thing feminism hopes to accomplish. (I believe these people a tiny minority but I won't deny it exists; there's nutcases on every team after all).
Guys are just

This came as a big shock and leaves all of us sad/angry/confused. She was a kickass rockchick and no way old enough to leave this world.
She had a daughter (my niece) for who'm this indecent hits the hardest.
As if losing someone isn't one of the most unfair feelings in the world so is the technical stuff that comes with it.
Not being prepared for paying for a funeral is one of those technicalities that in no way helps such an awful event.
So that's where I could use your help.
I'm willing to sell all sorts of things to get as much money together as possible.
So I'm temporary opening up more affordable commissions and offering 1 and a half hour feedback sessions for cheap.

Washu, how DID you...? (drawing skill)Hi there my friends!Washu, how DID you...? (drawing skill)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I decided to write this journal because many people ask me what I did to get to the level of skills I have at drawing.
Well the answer is training.
Just look around you! There are infinite sort of thing and objects waiting for you to try picturing them. And in fact that's how I started and I sort of do that even nowadays for training purposes.
You don't have to do it perfectly at first. Or second or third or N times. I really sucked when I started. And when I say I was really bad I mean it!
Remember Kung-fu Panda?
When Poh said: "There's no secret ingredient!"
I assure you he is damn right.
Yet, to achieve some stuff unfortunately you have to sacrifice others There's no other way. =/
Unless you were born a genius
And that's something I'm not
"But Washu, what did you sacrifice to achieve the level you are now?" You'd ask.
Oh I sacrificed maaaany things. Like:
Going out with friends, parties, movies
Texas Abortion Bill FilibusterIn case you live outside the USA and haven't heard of this yet, Texas was preparing to vote on a radical bill that would effectively outlaw abortions within their boarders. Senator Wendy Davis came in early in the morning with the expressed intent of filibustering: The goal being to delay the critical vote.Texas Abortion Bill Filibuster2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wendy Davis talked for 11 hours straight. No food. No drinks. No bathroom breaks. She couldn't even pause for a moment to take a sip of water or else she'd give up the floor and the vote could get underway. 11 hours straight she talked and just before the midnight cutoff she was interrupted, and the vote began... only to become absolute pandemonium as the crowd watching protested the interruption.
The GOP insists that the vote carried and passed, while the Democrats insist that they were still taking votes after the midnight cutoff thanks to the chaos that ensued. This is going to be one of those instances where the GOP are gonna try to lie and shove their way through our diplomatic
artist's block - BREAK IT! The recurring question “how do I break this artist's block”, we’ve all hit that wall where we just can’t find a way to get anything out, and if we do it’s just rubbish we can hardly bare to admit we created. There are many causes of artist’s block, and luckily many cures!artist's block - BREAK IT!5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Sometimes we're not inspired, this is probably the hardest to overcome because you can't always just make yourself get up and go get inspired. Another reason people hit this block is because they're just bored with what they're doing. Below are a few ways to break either of those causes, use one method, use four whatever you want and whatever it takes. You can get through it.
Take a break; seriously. This is my first suggestion give yourself a little bit to think, relax, rejuvenate and simply be blocked for a minute, hour or a day or two. Unless you’re in some rush to get it done take advantage of this step. Sometimes your brain just

What is your Drawing Skill Level?All of the images featured in this article come from archives of my own work so not to impose unwanted criticism. The intention of this article is not to categorize artists, but to categorize similarities of different skill levels of representational drawing. Please also note that skill level in representational drawing does not equate to the worth of an artist's creative ability. But skill in representational drawing is very important to have in a lot of art disciplines. It is a skill that takes a lifetime to learn. Skill does not come from talent. Instead, talent affects the perseverance, discipline, and desire of the individual to develop skill.What is your Drawing Skill Level?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is Representational Drawing? Representational drawing is a fancy way of saying trying to re-create something you see in real life on paper (or whatever you are drawing on). When we turn about 10 or 11 years old, or brains begin to develop a different perception of visual space than what we could understand before in the earlier y

Nonviolence: The Only Road to Freedom
By Martin Luther King Jr.
Whole article here: http://teachingamericanhistory.org/library/index.asp?document=1426
Selected quotes from the article:
"I am convinced that for practical as well as moral reasons, nonviolence offers the only road to freedom for my people. Violence as a strategy for social change in America is nonexistent. All the sound and fury seems but the posturing of cowards whose bold talk produces no action and signifies nothing."
"It is always amusing to me when a Negro man says that he can't demonstrate with us because if someone hit him he would fight back. Here is a man whose children are being plagued by rats and roaches, whose wife is robbed daily at overpriced ghetto

Sexy VS SexistIt seems that the gaming world is finally waking up to the fact that women DO actually play video games. They (the gaming industry) are not being mature about it, but the fact that a female perspective and voice is being heard more and more is a very good thing in my books.Sexy VS Sexist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The latest controversy to break out in the video game world has been over niche gaming studio Vanillaware's recent title "Dragon's Crown," and the absurdly sexualized female character of "The Sorceress" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQKCgal1vdw
Some people are, naturally, offended that such a ludicrous character design with no sense of reality or function even exists, while the other side keeps saying "why are we even talking about this?" Both sides are being vocal, but they also seem to be talking past one another. One side seems to want to rid gaming entirely of sexy character designs, while the other seems to think this is some sort of "feminist agenda" and are being sexist in response because they fear having a
DC puss out.While at my local comic-book emporium, I had a quick leaf through Harley Quinn #0 to check out the winning page from DC’s recent talent search.DC puss out.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It didn’t do much to dampen the disdain I harbour for the big-name comic companies.
For a start, I’m not sure how that page was selected as the cream of the crop. Bravo to the artist for being selected, sure, but there were far more dynamic, lively examples I saw posted here on DA, and I'm genuinely surprised that none of them were chosen. The page selected feels just as stiff, stagnant, sterile and devoid of life as much of the other stuff DC discharges onto the shelves (which might have been why they ran with it).
The main gripe I have, though, is that they changed the final panel.
For those that (somehow) missed the whoo-haa that the whole talent search kicked off: the script DC provided to their would-be artists called for illustrations depicting the titular Harley trying to off herself in a series of absurd ways: holding
