~How to Make Better and Faster Art~ Many aspiring artists have a hard time with image composition, and so did I when I got started. However, there are some basic rules we can follow to help with the scene composition work, making it easier and faster. Keep in mind that these are general rules, and may not always apply to what you are trying to do. Although these are called "rules", it's Ok to break them once you get the hang of it. These rules were meant to speed up the composition work, making it not only easier, but also more effective. This is one I was making last night. I am a pinup artist, so... surprise, surprise - it's a pinup! :D These are the composition rules I have followed when making this image: * Structure: The main subject is composed in the shape of a triangle, which is often considered well-balanced, and cause a strong visual impact. * Color Contrast: I have used lighting to cause a strong contrast between the subject and the background. This helps driving

~Female Mysteries~ Since puberty, I became interested in knowing what girls wanted from boys. Soon enough I realized it wasn’t just me - there was an avalanche of theories around this subject. But most of these theories diverged from each other, meaning they can’t be all true. In other words, we don’t know. However, that was on a different time and place where the internet didn’t exist yet, so research was much more limited to a local scope. I read a few books on psychology and sexuality, and there was some foundation to draw conclusions from, but at that time, they often ended up conflicting with each other. Let’s look at a classic topic - women are attracted to “bad boys”. Doesn’t that conflict with women’s claims that they want “good men”? You get the idea. Learning some psychology can help us in life, for it sheds some light on how people in general think. I often told people that if I haven’t graduated in computer science, I would instead had studied psychology. But since

For decades, there was a war raging the in US about immigrants allegedly taking people’s jobs. So much has it has become a political toy during elections. But all of the sudden, there is something else that has been effectively taking people’s jobs from behind the scenes - something we can’t see or touch: artificial intelligence (AI). This is not the first time when millions of people lost their jobs to technology. The invention of the steam machine had the same effect around 1760, starting the “Industrial Revolution”, which has created masses of unemployed people. The natural thing to do would be to seek for jobs in other areas, but not everyone is capable of doing so, be it for lack of abilities, or insufficient educational level. A PBS documentary has revealed that part of the UK population has become poor since then, and haven’t recovered to this day, due to the reduction in positions for manual labor. Those jobs are increasingly becoming automated. Canadian clinical

Seems like no matter what shiny toy I pick up, in my quest to making a better anime character in D|S, I just keep going back to what I bought for Genesis 1. Between the legacy morphs for Aiko and Hiro as well as the Hitomi/Hiro5 stuff, the possibilities are endless.

One a side note, I was playing the SNK 40th Anniversary collection(WELL worth the $20 I spent!). One of the games Psycho Soldier from the mid 1980s has a whole-ass fully sung vocal track that plays through the first level of the game! Its not that interesting of a game, but the fact they managed to put that much digitized audio in a game from 1986, stored on ROM chips no less, is amazing.
