bulletproofturtleman's Profile Picture
Through death we live-
United States
I have ARDS, otherwise known as Artistic-Reverse-Drunkard-Syndrome. The longer I look at something to draw and work on it, the worse it gets. The whole "my sketch came out fantastic... why is the end product so shitty?" case applies here.

Tracing/use of art: Hey it's simple. Ask me about using my art for reference or tracing over for something, and if I give you the thumbs up, it's cool. If not, respect my wishes. No need to start an internet war over this stuff (damn it someone traced my art/oh boohoo people are sending death threats to me).

The idea that anyone who hires an artist without compensation is utterly foolish based on the notion that it is something everyone can do.

The talent of hard work is nurtured over time, defined by passion and forged by failure into success. One does not simply buy it like cheap materials, nor does one assume money will bridge the gap. Talent isn't bought from artists- it's rented. Respect them.
Almost, probably about 95% of the way there to throwing in the towel on everything, the name and the arts. Good thing I got bros like :iconcoreylandis: and :iconshinigamileo: to keep me looking forward and eyes sharp. I have been working on art, but throughout the period of the last few months, got really tired, burnt out and I just didn't want to draw anymore. I really considered being done and just retiring the name Bulletproofturtleman, since it was such a heavy name to carry while I had so many things to hold onto in real life. But names are just names, and Wolfbambino sure did a good job reminding me that expectations are basically just shit that I don't have to worry about. 

So let me reintroduce myself as the guy with no fucks given, who does things the BPTM way~

Heya. I know I dont have a gallery up or anything (I took it down a year ago) and my account is pretty much dead because I've lost inspiration to draw but Ive wanted to say that I really love looking at your art gallery its really refreshing to see great artists every now and then and your art is some of the best Ive seen in a long while. Excellent job and keep up the great work!
It's rather unfortunate that you've lost your inspiration, but embers can be rekindled, so hopefully you will be able to find your inspiration and start again, that is if you so choose to do so. My sincerest thanks, and I'm happy that you enjoyed looking through my work. I try hard to keep up the work, so I'll be sure to keep working at it. =D

Splendid! :P Space is just time, you know! When you think about it that way, entropy is inevitable! :D That's right, Brutus! One day you and I will just be one very small object. Along with everything else in the universe. Then it will explode.
