I love Feedly. At least I used to.
Feedly has been a great RSS reader from the past few years ... but what surprises me is I don't see anyone talking about the possible dangers of the growing monopoly of Feedly and the support it's gathering.

It's been one and a half month since I have uploaded any artwork. I was hoping none of you sweet people would remove me from your watch :P
I have been doing art directly from stock photographs by putting more than two of them them together to create my own ideas. However, I knew that I wouldn't be able to fulfill my real desires by depending on tracing over photographs, I needed to draw!
That was not possible without having a scanner for scanning traditional media or a drawing tablet. I am not interested in having some Carpel(?) syndrome drawing with the mouse :D
So, my Sweetheart (edit Sept2010: EX) http://lenindcruz.deviantart.com/art/By
In my quest to be finally be a draftsman worth his salt, I have been learning something on the way. This journal series would be my journey. Someday, when I can finally afford a scanner and then upload my work, people might ask how I draw so good :D and I could simply point them to my learning journey.
1: REFERENCES are a must!
I used to read about the importance of it but never thought much. I tried drawing humans from memory, I think the chimps came out well instead! So, NOW I try sketching down humans from the internet. Doing pretty well. The fact is that if you can't sketch someone or something from reference, then hell if you can
Hey Lenin! Glad you commented. How could I forget you? lol Everything is going great, I've been practicing with different mediums of art lately, but haven't posted anything in a while. I hope all is going spectacularly for you in the new year as well! &
