He draws naked anime ladies.
And like argile said, he's been away from NG for months, so I don't understand the hate.

It's irrational to hate to someone who hasn't been active around the art forum lately but the only recent activity he's ever used it for recently is to earn those medals.

Last forum post was February, last art submission was May, last audio submission was July.
So yeah, pretty inactive.

Here is a fun topic to start rage fueled arguments over.

In a nutshell, art school is more stressful than regular schools.

My alma mater got mentioned a few times in there, once even for being the second highest % of mentally whacked students

More stressful in what regards?
Due to work load? Due to requirements for creativity and productivity?
Due to isolation from non-artists? Due to "acceptance" of pieces you feel are not art?

But it seems that I was right in assuming it was due to work load and the requirements of creativity and productivity.

I thought it was because the only poeple that go to art school are weak-minded kids that can't think straight...

wrong crowd?

Anyways, yeah I didn't read it, been doing too much reading today allready, what with the exams of my super mentally taxing study coming up?

Art school as in art college, I guess? Not from what I experience. And the whole 'art students take more medication for their mental health'.. Can't it just be that people who are more depressed/stressed/anxious are more attracted to (studying) art in general?
(Not endorsing the depressed, starving artist imagery per se, but it could be)
I went to "art-highschool" and I can safely say that is not exactly more stressful than 'normal' highschools. Less so, probably. It's more physically work-intensive, but I had a lot more stress in my first two 'normal highschool' years.

Could be just in the US though. All those kids hopped up on drugs.

I've heard our workload is on par with that of pre-med students. I was just talking to someone who had calculated out all the hours of work each teacher expects her to do, and the sum came out to 28 hours a day.

I took an art appreciation class in high school and it always broke my heart to have the teacher force me to point out the flaws in masterpieces from respected artists because I knew that I wouldn't be able to produce anything that was 1/85th of what they were making. I obviously didn't have the guts to talk shit.

Depressing art stress talk o.0...
Anyway, I need something from one of you if you guys have it.
My next project needs some reference.
Do Any of you have one of those Tankmen Figures?
If so you mind getting me about 6-10 good photos of it at a couple different angles?

I'm too broke/cheap to be able to buy one, so I intend to sculpt a smaller tankmen in a week long project.

Probably Steve

I'm not sure if I want to do a fully posed figure, or a bust yet. I do know it is only going to be maybe 5 or 6 inches tall though.
Sketching on the project is suppose to start Sunday, the 11th. I should have the final on Friday the 16th.

Ok I'm rambling now...

Er.... I like oranges... :D

On a non art related side note, I really want this thing. Then if I ever actually learn how to animate, I can make sick jams to go with it.

Is it ever funny to you non-professional doodlers (like me) when you're just casually sketching and someone comments "You should be an artist" or "You could make a lot of money selling that"?

Because to me, it makes me realize:
A. People who don't know a lot about drawing get easily impressed
B. This applies to my 'backroom theory' and they think there's some magical way I could just start making millions with this doodle of a zombie skateboarding on a bracheosaurus.

Backroom theory: Working at a grocery story people tend to ask if I can get blank from 'the back' which is a mystical land where whatever they want is just there waiting to be had, when in reality that's not how grocery stores work.

Who is the hunter?

Yes. I will have drawings get lots of praise, but be utter crap that fellow artists/people on NG will be like "meh. s'alright." It's just easy to impress people who don't draw.

B. This applies to my 'backroom theory' and they think there's some magical way I could just start making millions with this doodle of a zombie skateboarding on a bracheosaurus.

Do it! Or don't do it, so I can do it.

I like this theory. Don't some grocery stores have giant back stockrooms though? I have never made this request, but depending on what you're asking for, it doesn't seem completely unreasonable.

Dude it's like, a fucking opportunity. Every time some flat-faced dickwad gawks in at you sketching it doesn't take much to turn around and fire off a quick "Got $10? 'cause I'll sketch whatever you want, here and now".

If you get lucky, you'll manage to amass a queue before too long, and nothing boosts self-esteem further then people paying for your normal sketches <3
