QUICK PICKS
Updated 4 JULY 2019. Steve Kellener of Animationmeat.com informed me that after Walt Stanchfield published Drawn to Life , which was culled from Walt's Disney handouts, AKA the Stanchfield Notes, Animationmeat.com dropped the notes.  They are no longer available at that site.  However, Steve directed me to another website that picked them up.  You can view them online, or download, here    https://thinkinganimation.com/animation_resources__trashed/walt-stanchfield-handouts/ _____________________________ I salvaged the Quick Picks from the widget on my profile page and placed them in this literature post just to make sure that if something

In this application the blade is simply an extension of the hand, doing

Rising From the Ashes . . . Again!
Above:  Martial Arts integration for extreme close quarters weapons combat - what it may come down to if you carry a concealed weapon and how martial arts training and conditioning may make the difference between winning, or losing, your life. __________________________________________________________________________________________________ ART: No INKtober for me!  The spirit hasn't moved me.  Got other and far more important concerns.  INKtober is good for those in Art training - or rather, for those who need to work toward training seriously.  And it's also good for those who are in training to take a break from the rigors of a schedule

With Both Eyes Open
Above: Close quarters with the Colonel Blade punch knife (L.) and push dagger (R.)  Scary stuff. ___________________________________________________________________________ Art-Mando:  I still haven't done any artwork.  Turned off the Cintiq two months ago and haven't turned it on since.  But, my bud, Armando (Art-mando) got himself Clip Studio Paint and a Cintiq Pro 16 to run it on, so I went over to help him set up.  The Pro 16 is about a third the size of mine and it's not touch, but then it doesn't cost the same, either.  Otherwise, it's a mini version of the big one and, so, quite impressive.  You can hold it like a clipboard to sketch

I really like your resources and you seem like you know your stuff to help...

If I have any questions can I send you a private message?

thanks.  And, yes, absolutely!  If you think it's something that could benefit others, just use the comments (ie. on the profile page or a deviation page).  If it is of a personal nature use private notes.  That's up to you.  Either way is fine with me.

Can I throw you a challenge? I don't know if you share my ... interest in kink. But beauty transcends, right? So ...

Depict the emotion of "submission" in a female figure using only body language and pose.

I eagerly await any results!

Beauty absolutely transcends, and in transcending transforms . . . 
As far as the challenge, I'll keep it in mind.  But you know 'the spirit bloweth where it listeth.'  I have no idea what moves me and why.  I tend to mosey along doing my thing, until something crosses my path and redirects me.  I think that's part of being an artist or writer, being receptive to these "ideas" that seem to come from nowhere, and responding to them - dialoguing with them.

Here is something I did that runs along the line of your challenge, but it was written as fiction.  It's a character study of a woman submitting to sado/masochistic urges she does not comprehend - yet she follows the path of self-revelation as it unfolds (see below). 

White of the Die: The End of Time"I looked upon your face; it is my face."
"That frozen rage is what I must explore."
"O, secret, self-enclosed and silent place!"
"That is the gift I thank Medusa for."
                        (Gift of the Medusa--May Sarton)    
     Michael Carver's Norwegian fisherman's sweater made an effective bulwark against the cold damp mists of the Washington seacoast.  It belonged to Phyllida Grant when she visited.  The twenty-nine-year-old magazine editor would pull it on and stretch it over her knees when the three curled up in front of the fireplace to sip herbal tea and munch wheat-thins.   Invariably, on those occasions, Michael would rebuke her for deforming his sweater.  Wendy would join Michael against Phee, mock-serious.  Then she and Phee would giggle and laugh unti
   White of the Die: White Girl (Denouement)     Reggie Rey reached across Phillipa Grant's king-size bed to take hold of the terry-cloth belt that lay tangled with Phee's crumpled robe at the edge.  "Turn on your stomach," he said curtly.
     "Pardon?" She replied.
     "I said turn over.  I want you to lay face down."
     "Why! Reggie . . . What ever for?  What are you going to do to me?" The beautiful woman asked suspiciously.
     "I'm going to tie your hands behind your back.  Any objections?"
     Phee bit her lower lip and tried to suppress the unexpected wave of desire that was beginning to flood her body.  Reggie was exciting her, but she needed time to consider the situation rationally.  Didn't she have enough of it?  Couldn't she be satisfied with tonight's romantic conquest without embellishing it w

Just wanted to stop by and say hello! Thanks again for today

So glad you did! I feel as if we all responded with the best of our human nature.  The way everyone cooperated - no power struggles or leadership issues.  It was like the egos disappeared and we melded into a functional unit with various individuals taking the lead at different times to help this fellow.  It made me appreciate the social group and feel honored to participate in it, instead of being critical of it and seeking to avoid it.  And while I don't understand why you thanked me - it makes me feel good, for which I'm grateful.  In a way that's difficult to explain, you made my day.  I'd like to stay in touch.
  
Two Ks in Okkita!  I missed that, so couldn't find your profile page and gallery :(  But I was finding it difficult and slow to process new information in the aftermath of what happened.  Didn't pick up on things you told me until late at night and this morning.) 

Got medical appointments following up on a recent injury, so I'm jetting from one to another.  Looking forward to getting them out of the way so I can take time to review your gallery.

It’s all good I’m glad to have made your day! Sorry for a late reply i had a busy week and weekend myself trying to get things done at work and at home.

You were there and helped and that in its self is more that enough to be thankful for. I’d love to stay in touch! ❤️I enjoyed talking to you and I agree things were very much a blur after that accident
