Taking some college art classes, beginning oil/acrylic painting, beginning drawing, and Adobe Illustrator class.
Course materials ended up taking a thousand dollars out of my pocket. I dont mind though since i can see this stuff being a investment.

Spoiled myself a bit a got a Intous 5 and a 1TB external hard drive for my Illustrator class, and i had to buy some 50 dollar Adobe book about illustrator.

Oils/Drawing supplies came out to be around five or six hundred dollars. Oil gets pricey :s

Ill be posting progress and will most likely be asking questions mostly about Illustrator or Oil painting. In other news during the introduction every single fucking person there either drew terrible anime, drew terribly in general, or said they wanted to be a game designer thus making them want to attend AI in San Francisco. The game design part peeved me a bit because of the sheer lack of understanding of games and design it would take to even get into QA or moving up to be a code monkey. Also i represented Newgrounds hard with my shirt, no one noticed. Kinda disappointing with my digital illustration peers. ;_;

Other than that i wanted to stop by and say i love you all and stuff. <3 <3 <3 <3

I remember some of the terrible anatomy in comic books being brought up a few weeks back, specifically Liefield.
Here's something I found today, pretty hilarious and relevant to that.

A while ago when i was interning with a game company some of you might remember me bitching about the terrible computer i had to use. It was a Dell, which is saying enough without having to list out any specs. Long story short my work day was nearly being doubled because of how slow this piece of shit was. The best art program i got to work on it was Paint.net which is pretty steep when you are making game assets. And saving a picture at print resolution at a large size would sometimes take hours. I gradually became more and more frustrated and exhausted because of how much effort i would have to pour into a simple task. My father being the cool guy he is noticed and brought me one of the old work computers from his office that he no longer used. At first glance it looked like a small, outdated notebook. But i was ecstatic when he turned the screen around and turned the computer into a tablet, with a pen and everything.

At first i just used it for MS Painting and such, because the computer only about 1.5 gigs of Ram and the hard drive is something like 35 or 40 gigs, not very impressive. Also the computer wouldn't pick up wifi so i assumed it had no wireless card after many attempts to try and re install the wireless driver.

But as i used the computer i started noticing it's many features. It has a thumb scanner, a built in mic, shortcut buttons for the tablet interface, and rotating tablet screen, and i recently discovered it indeed does have wireless. I also installed Windows 7 last night and it runs a lot faster. Also if you make some minor tweaks to the system and fix some MS bugs it will run even faster.

I just really wanted to recommend this little guy to anyone interested in having a computer for working on art while on the road, or having a portable alternative for school or work. These are also workforce computers so they are built extremely durable.

Some downfalls are that it lacks a actual track pad and has one of those awkward keyboard nipples, it has very limited storage, and the tablet isn't quite up to date. While the tablet end of this laptop was handled by Wacom, it was a while ago so it doesnt have pressure sensitivity. Which i know is a big downfall for some PS painters. As far as getting art programs on to it, downloading portable versions of PS, Flash, Illustrator, etc, onto a external hard drive are the best way to go. I actually use portable versions even for desktop work just to keep my tower un cluttered with programs.

The best thing about this though, is the price. You can find them used from 100 to 200 dollars (USD). Really affordable if you ask me, its extremely versatile and a 1.5 gigs of ram isn't terrible. Also as far as the hard drive goes, you can get a TB Hard Drive at Best Buy for $100.00.

I just wanted to recommend one of these to all of you. I know there are probably better models and newer tablet PC's but this one is super cheap for what it is. If you cant afford a fancy tablet laptop then i personally think this is the best alternative. You can read up on the entire thinkpad series here.

I'm pretty sure he doesn't
those pictures are made with the sole purpose of looking cool to a general comic-aficionado. I don't know how far he succeeds in that but proper perspective/anatomy really isn't the goal here, the pic is supposed to convey that this is a guy with superhuman strength. Sure the many problems his work has could be kind of a deal-breaker for me too; but I'm pretty sure I'm not his target audience.

Anyone know what kinds of paint don't work/age well on cars? I botched a paint job on my 68 VW Bug (mostly cuz I did it in the open and bugs were ramming themselves into the car as I was painting it) and I'm leaning towards just drawing whatevers and painting it over then sealing it with some clear coat. I don't know though, if I used say, acrylics, whether or not it'll sit right on the metal or react in some way (the paint I used reacted weird to the damn bondo the previous owner lied to me about). Anywho, anyone know? Or is it just a guessing game?

I use some of this, http://www.houseofkolor.com/speedshapes/speedshapes_shimrin.

its made specifically for car metals, just a word though, get a high quality respirator and do your painting in an enclosed space, something literally closed off from outside I use a storage container fitted with lights, its okay for bikes but I think with a bug you'll need more space so go ask some of your local garages or somewhere where you can drive you car in and be away from the elements if you can do this they're usually cool about it.

also get a paint gun and masking tape, different widths for accuracy and something biodegradable like paper that doesn't soak in as much like craft paper, cover your headlights, tail lights, windscreen, windows, wheels and trim in that stuff, when you get down to painting, or rather at this point spraying, remember you can add minimal effects with a paint brush after its dried, just don't get too much paint on the brush or it'll drip on your work, unless that's the thing you're going for , good idea to use black, but any color that contrasts works

also if its a bug heres a suggestion, paint the trim chrome, including the hubcaps, (if you still have them) its just essential for the bug to be adorned in chrome, its trim is all over, its asking for it!

OH FORGOT!

You need paint primer, ask for some at your local automobile parts shop
