About originality in artMany deviants around here seem to think that if they have seen a type of work before then that means it's not original. So by that reasoning, if someone comes up with the weirdest thing in the world, than that makes him original and therefore better than the one that drew something that has been done before.More Like This
I'd like you to consider this for a while. Humanity has been around for thousands of years, almost anything an artist might think of drawing, has been drawn before. If an artist draws a portrait of a girl, that is so "unoriginal" you can literally find hundreds of thousands of such drawings.
Then should an artist stay away from drawing portraits?
Is an artist's work less valuable?
Consider this for a moment. There was an artist (if i can even call him that), that pooped in a box, and made an art show about it. He was definitely original and his work is very valued. There was another artist who put a shark in a tank and sold it for $12.000.000 dollars, (yes it's

Duel of the fates
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
Famously said by many, “Ninety percent of success is showing up.” How true it is about a soul killing combination: looking at what our own first efforts in any endeavor, particularly art, result in, and then looking at the works of far more experienced artists. Giving up always seems the logical, if panicked,
GN Drive PhysicsThe following was taken from another forum and was not done by me. Details below.More Like This
Here is a smorgasbord of stuff that I've been thinking about regarding everything GN-related. The following is a set of ideas derived from high energy particle physics, and later on, quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. Would love to show the equations for any of this, but hell, even the professional theoretical physicists aren't sure they have their math right. Anyway, this will be a thread about my musings, derived from my time as a physics minor in undergrad. The mishmash of theoretical physics have a mathematical precedence, but I won't bore you with the math. It's messy.
And to begin this big long schpiel, we'll have to start with the heart of the matter - wtf is a GN drive?
GN Drive Mechanics
The true GN drives run off of "non-evaporative decay of baryonic matter," which in layman's terms means that CB has harnessed a much more exotic means of power generation than we can i
