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.
SUP!? Turtles here-

I see a lot of new faces and a huge pile of stuff to dig through- Guess that happens when you're MIA for a huge period of time. 
In case you guys weren't hip to it, yep, I was focusing on leveling up my art skills throughout this whole year and had a challenge quota of 480 SKETCHES FOR 2016.

Though, due to the deviation upload system on deviantart, it was really annoying to upload that frequently and have to sort things, so I'd been using my other social media outlets like instagram, tumblr and my facebook page… for handling most of that. Typically, I keep my deviantart for more finished works and I didn't want to overload it with sketches as I went through my art journey. Figured that type of thing would be too much to go through after a while. 

But anyways.. I'm down to about my last 63 sketches of the year to meet 480, and boy do I have a lot to post, so expect a HUUUUUUUUGE LANDSLIDE OF ART. That is all- 

Be good my turtle peeps- 
BPTM is out here, and he appreciates the love from everyone ^u^
