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.
Interests
For the month of February, I'll be featuring different artists and for the speedpaints, I'll be studying their style and doing my best to replicate it. Obviously an hour is a short time to dissect and replicate a style, but it'll be good practice, since these are already artists I look up to. >.o

Let's see what I can pull off for this month. As always, character suggestions for speedpaints are welcome. Just don't be offended if I don't paint them. Some good references are hard to come by.

Well, as long as you are okay with the message and not upset by it...that would be what counts.  Y-you are okay with it are you not? :worry:

Hey man, It's Horan, since I don't have a way to contact you anymore (since I've deleted all social media) I thought I'd hit you up here. Glad to see you're still working on your art. sick stuff bro.

Of course, you haven't made it very easy to find you. Yep, still working on art, thanks. Doing some work for a studio nowadays and random commissions here and there with my occasional battles. How have things been for you?

Dude always love your art.

You know. Your action is always amazing, but I have a challenge for you.

This is probably the most touching anime I have ever seen, its amazing!

I personally would love to see how you would capture it in your style.

Its called usagi drop: www.anime-realm.com/Usagi-Drop…

Its really good man. And only 10 episodes

I am familiar with this anime and it is on my to-watch list. Since another person recommended it now, I guess I'll have to bump it further up the list. I'll be sure to do a tribute to it in my style. I don't know when it'll be, but when I get to it, I guess I'll let it surprise the both of us.
