Darkicus reporting in -
Nothing much to say about May other than my draw class stuff finished- in the end it really left me tired, but I feel a lot more comfortable with the city centre from popping in on buses all the time. -
Made a tumblr but haven't set it up yet -
Much more adjusted to using my silly mobile device -
I'm all tuckered out for words.
Despite being stuck for motivation, I'm actually doing well, various projects aside. Still some unfinished business to finish up in my lifey-life -
Rats invaded house, that was pretty distracting and somewhat disturbing, but dealt with. -
Late night game sessions.
I'm super happy with Shou, with things kinda stabilising a bit.
artzI think that anger from visual artists towards other artists never has anything to do with anatomy, style, age, content, or personality. These are just icing on the cake. At the core, I think there two kinds of practicing artists:More Like This
- People who believe that you need to be qualified (by an abstract or specific entity, person, or group) in order to make a living or name for yourself. Anyone who is doing these things without qualification is a cheater who will fail ultimately.
- People who believe qualification is subjective, or even irrelevant, and you might as well shoot for the name or living while you progress your skills anyway. Anyone who isn't trying to make their mark while practicing anyway is wasting their time.
I think that a recognizable name and income are the "holy grail" achievements for artists… though obviously there are many tiers and kinds of achievements, some big and some small! I suppose it's a little natural for artists to be angry, envious, or upset whe
1000 Watchers!!!!The MilestoneMore Like This
:iconfluttershyyesplz: OMG! I never thought I would reach 1000 watchers at one point a year ago, it is amazing how things have gotten, I appreciate everyone for this, I mean, I don't feel my art is that good yet people seem to like it, I hope to always do my best and keep improving.
Thank you very much everyone, I hope I can make good art for you guys and making that watch worth your time. I hope my art in general keeps growing and now that I have ventured into the realms of using a Bamboo tablet and SAI, I hope to bring even more diversity soon.
thank you guys!!!
One Year of Deviations
Holy Crap, has it been more than a year now? It all started when :iconabydos91:abydos91 told me to embark on vectors, after 2 days of studying youtube vids and tutorials I went for it, the outcome being my first vector:
A year later I do my own sketches and art, and I like the outcomes, the latest vector being this one:
PE: The power of contextA picture is indeed "worth a thousand words", a complex idea can be conveyed with a single still image. This quote also characterizes one of the main goals of visualizations, namely making it possible to absorb large amounts of data quickly. In our perception of artworks we see every day, some get closer to our hearts than others. Imagine a painting, strong and powerful, technique showing an experienced, steady hand, needing nothing but a pair of eyes to enter one's sensitive soul. Are you satisfied with what you see? I wouldn't count on that, but I would be quite sure that after a while your head fills with numerous questions.More Like This
On the contrary, your favorite artist publishes their recent work and you, as always, immediately love it. If, however, you would allow your mind a little exercise, you could clearly see that if this work was shown to you at random, under different circumstances and you would not know the author, hardly would it catch your interest for a second.

A very strange mix of awesomeness, confusion, indulgence and exhaustion. It's been really difficult to be productive, beyond the initial quick burst I had surrounding DShou's birthday. Despite Shou's attempts to encourage me towards more submissions with the 100-draw-challenge, more than 50% of my work for the month remains in stash.

The Adventures Of Boat - http://sta.sh/01noqwi671fb
Prompt came from Shou- when asked what his favourite character from Cordia was, to star in the drawing, he named Twin Stars and Boat. I went with Boat. Hell yeah.
