Deep Thoughts at 7PMWhen i looked at things as a child, i saw winnie the pooh, or red curtains. I saw logos that spelled out "SEARS" and what people were wearing.Deep Thoughts at 7PM2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But as i grew up and started at an artist approach to well... everything. I looked at things differently.
I no longer see winnie the pooh, i see the folds of his shirt on his neck, his proportions in comparison to his little treehouse. I see the dark spot above his nose as something with depth. I see the thickness of lines and the way the backgrounds are colored, and illustrated. I see hours of frames and work and people sitting behind their computers, or infront of their draft boards with a coffee to the left drafting each and every scene and redrafting. I see people in a board room discussing a project and everyone standing up when its a success, clapping.

How did the introduction of Jazz, Crazes and popular media influence the American populace during the early 1920s?
Brilliant question Silverpoint345, well well well firstly the American public heard the music and was like "HELL NAH THIS AINT MUSIC" cos in the 1920s everyone was kinda boring and didn't do much except for talkin about the weather, then after a while they became more open minded and were like "HELL YEAH THIS IS MY KINDA SH*T" and the

Collection: Swimming PoolsCollection: Swimming Pools1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
A series of private pools suggests the 1968 Burt Lancastar film, “The Swimmer,” (based on a John Cheever story) in which a man decides to swim a “river” of backyard swimming pools in an affluent neighborhood to make his way home. Along the way, encounters with his neighbors produce a soul–crushing epiphany that he is not nearly the beloved, respected, successful man he had deluded himself into believing.

This week... has been a really drainful, hectic, stressful week. And it'll probably be my last week to be goofing and drawing around ;u;
Now let's start with every possible hectic thing that can happen to a girl in just one week.

I got the call, and I'll be going to a some sort of 'training/orientation' on the 25th Nov (that's tomorrow for me) and I'll start working the week after.
The dreadful hours, stressful environment of senior doctors have all be warned to me by my friends who had been working, so yes; I am leaving dA, and might as well put down the tablet pen for forever. Might be overdramatic in a sense, but I ca
