Drawing tips - tutorialHello watchersDrawing tips - tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some people ask me how I learned to draw and what tips I can give them! So I wrote a tutorial and hope it will help! Here are my tips for you to become a better drawer!
First of all a good drawing stands with good materials. Good paper (no copy paper) and good pencils. If you're not sure, the expensive ones are mostly pretty good! For graphite I use Staedtler Mars Lumograph and for colour Faber-Castell "Polycromos".You need to use different numbers of pencils: 4H for very light areas and 6B for the dark areas. A big contrast in a drawing makes a better drawing! You can't make a good drawing with one HB pencil. You need a 6B or 4B to create more depth in the drawing.Choose a good picture. The greatest drawer in the world can't make a good drawing from a bad picture. A high-resolution image is necessary to see all the details! Next to the high-resolution, it has to be an interesting picture. The result could be a beautiful drawing, however a boring image wouldn't attract a

Project Educate: Macro Overview Macro PhotographyProject Educate: Macro Overview3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Contrary to old wives tales - Macro isn't just about animals. However it is about the sort of lens and the sort of focus you use when capturing a shot. Macro can be just about anything if you are closing in on something - generally very small subjects or small parts of things. The term is applied to the majority of close up photographs but technically it should only apply to those that have a 1:1 or closer magnification.
EliseEnchanted has a beautiful gallery that explores all kinds of Macro Photography!

A Brief History of Marvel's Film RightsSome people took interest in this from my last journal ( Spider-Man and the Avengers ) so I thought I’d try to explain it better here. Please keep in mind that this is a SUPER CONDENSED version of events that took place (starting 60 years ago) that led to the convoluted mess that is currently Marvel’s various film franchises. Also keep in mind that I will be using industry shorthand like saying “comic book industry” to refer to the American comic book industry giants of Marvel and DC, because that’s how we do things here. Anyway, here we go!A Brief History of Marvel's Film Rights7 months ago in Personal More Like This
“Seduction of the Innocent” comes out (a moral panic book which blames comics for kid’s wayward negative behavior), massive book burnings and censorship of comics ensues. Old comics burned or lost, thus increasing the value of the few comics that remain.
4chan compromisedUNNECESSARY NECESSARY PREFACE!4chan compromised8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm well aware that not all of 4chan is "evil" and that not all people who participate or visit 4chan are "evil" either. This journal uses large sweeping generalizations because that's helpful for having a larger discussion. I'm not interested in minutia, I'm interested in the big picture here. And sadly, even if you love 4chan, it has a reputation which precedes it and you cannot deny that. So please, don't comment here with "But not ALL 4chan is bad!" remarks, ok? I know. I understand.
So here’s the latest that I’ve been able to discover about the GamerGate movement. Apparently 4chan and other like-minded websites have been “compromised.” Mods are now banning or deleting threads and discussions about GamerGate. This, naturally, has led many to assume that 4chan is “under control” by Social Justice Warriors (SJW for short) and a lot of people are leaving 4chan now to find other websites (or poss
