The 'Method'I'm often asked if I use a projector, a printed canvas or grid for my paintings.The 'Method'2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To be blunt, the answer is simple 'no'.
I do use several vertical & horizontal lines as the guide to put the object in the right position
only when the canvas is big(over 1m high).
The reason I don't use those technical methods is simple;
I'm an old-fashioned man!
I consider myself more of an old craftsman than an artist in modern-day concept.
For me, practicing and perfecting my craft is as important as creating a good piece of art.
Some people say the process doesn't matter as long as you have a good outcome, but I don't believe that.
I don't feel completely happy with the outcome even though it looks near-perfect if I don't feel that my hard work is involved.
I may work much faster and easier if I use a projector or a printed canvas,
but I'd rather train myself harder and harder to be a more skilled and versatile painter.
After all, you won't need to spend that much money on buying a projector and print
Feminism is not a dirty wordGotta get this off my chest :iconwhywouldffffplz:Feminism is not a dirty word1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The above photo was linked to from this article that I read a few weeks ago. I really don't want to make my Journal into a political soapbox, but this has been bugging me nonstop for weeks and I feel I have to say something.
I like this dude. I really do, I like that he's taking a stand for what he thinks is right, but...that little sign isn't sending the message Guy was going for :I
This may just be my interpretation, but...when I first read that sign, it gave me the impression of "it takes a strong woman to tell us men what to do". Unbeknownst to Guy, he's putting down half the world's population, by making the claim that they don't, and possibly can't, know any better, unless guided by a strong woman who does. Circumstantial evidence tells me Guy is fighting for the caus

Tracing, and its legalitiesSo, interesting fun fact I found out today, everyone; Tracing isn't illegal.Tracing, and its legalities3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You read me.
Here's an example of a professional who avidly traces, making a living off of it. http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2012/06/11/muv-luv-character-designer-fired-over-tracing-controversy He worked for some anime called Muv-Luv, and there was a controversy over whether or not he traced. They even went as far as to overlay his work with the works they believe he traced from--direct match, no difference save for hair and one of the character's eyes.
Do you think he was sued? No. Jailed? Double no. He was fired, though it was stated to be solely as a public relations move--too many people got upset over him being found to have traced. But others have had the same happen to them. That same blog has a comment that mentions another artist, found tracing, who was fired--then hired by another company soon afterwards. It didn't ruin his career at all, merely set him back a bit. As long as you aren'

The Bumps Are What You Climb OnEncouragement for Difficult DaysThe Bumps Are What You Climb On2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is an excerpt from the book "The Bumps Are What You Climb On" by Warren Wiersbe
A little boy was leading his sister up a mountain path and the way was not too easy. "Why, this isn't path at all," the little girl complained. "It's all rocky and bumpy." And her brother replied, "Sure, the bumps are what you climb on." That's a remarkable piece of philosophy. What do you do with the bumps on the path of life?
I have been a reader of biographies for many years, and I have yet to find a successful person whose life was free from problems and difficulties. Looking at these people from a distance, you might think that they had it made and that life was easy for them. But when you get closer, you discover that their climb to the top of the mountain was not an easy one. The road was rocky and bumpy, but the bumps were what they climbed on to get to the top.
I don't know what difficulties you are going through just now, but I know some of the feelings

I had received a job offer at Microsoft. I guess this could have been one of my first 'big time' jobs, so I was a little ecstatic. It felt like a slow build to get to this point, after numerous indie games and under the table freelance jobs, but finally it had come.
I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I
