Just changing the subject for the sake of talking about something less retarded.

I've been working on a series partially inspired by the Pre-Raphaelite movement for some time. It falls well within their canon as far as subject matter and it's frequently similiar stylistically, but the level of realism varies a lot more than their stuff would and I use a much wider range of materials depending on the piece. Other than that, I'm really not sure.

I'd actually made a thread asking people how and why they got into drawing, and what inspired them. Very few people stepped up to the plate though :c

I really honestly don't know. I know for sure that I don't have any artists I emulate, beyond simply doing tutorial after tutorial to try and refrain from sucking at drawing/painting.

Hell, I still have trouble defining my style beyond "kind of lame and cartoonish"

I've seen this Flash Game Projectin the collab forum, and I thought somebody here may be interested.
In a nutshll, the game is complete, but requires a graphical overhaul of the card designs and map into vectors.

At the top of the thread you can place a bid.
Let's say in $10 per hour for 34 card designs ... $350?
You can also split the work between a pair of you, if you don't want to spend so much time.

Just got back from my first time paintballing. Very fun indeed.
As long as you're conservative with your ammo, you don't really need to buy many extra paintballs.
I pulled off 3 action rolls (all unintentional) and about 5 slides (intentional).
I suggest giving it a whirl if you've ever been interested.

Next time you go, try playing Ironman rules for the final round.
What are the rules:
1) All normal rules are gone (no surrender rule/ point blank shot is legal)
2) keep going until you: a- run out of ammo or b- can't take the pain of being shot anymore.
(to date I have only ever left Ironman games for ammo, never pain)

I'd love to play ironman, but it's based on the rules of the company, not our own.
As for pain, honestly, it wasn't that bad, I've only got about 3 bruises total on me (one asshole, probably on my own team, shot me in the neck while i was walking off).

And thats why I always wear a hat backwards when I go, that way the visor covers my neck.

Still gotta say the most painful experience in paintball, for me, was a point blank shot to a particularly sensitive area (kid was probably around ten and was crouched down, I should have seen that one coming).
But the best was when I got the drop on five guys from a para-military group during a 25-on-25 round (you know you did good when the officers from the group want to shake your hand afterwards)

Nah, it was the front of the neck, under the jawline.

And that's why I wore a cup.

Best move I pulled off was during a capture the flag match. I booted around the map, and pulled off a good 3-foot slide behind the car in the middle of the field where the flag was. The ref was on the second floor reffing the field from a window. I looked up at him, and he motions to me that the flag is still there on the car. I zip out from behind the car and swing around to get the flag. Right after the car is a drop in the field, so I jump off the ledge. I messed up my landng and stumbled, but somehow connected it into an action roll in which I also spun around 180 degrees and landed with my back to a shed beside a buddy of mine.

Are we going to do a FtPF?
And if so, will it be moved to the 8th, or are we rushing it for this friday?
Just curious to know.
My suggestion for subject is our childhood heroes, btw :O

Either way I did have a thought of this happening with the flash portal and audio portal. On friday we make songs, saturday we make games, and on sunday we make animations. I also had an idea where on monday everybody could make an collab of random stuff relating to a topic. I can go on forever about this and stuff.

It's a lot harder to crank out a song or a game in a week than it is a piece of art. Also, the idea is to flood a portal with the same macro for your art, so it looks flooded. It's hard to do this in portals where the submissions are a lot more frequent.

I shall miss the flood :<

In other news, I *might* take on a solo project, similar to Dave's art forum thing, but with gijinkas (omg dont kill me ash!)
Because, you guys all know how the collab failed, I dont think Danopus is coming back, I cant run a collab (even if people were up for it), and, frankly, I've sketched out around 30 already, most of which have already been drawn for the collab. That isnt to say expect anythin soon (except perhaps sketches and wips in my thread), plus I have other obligations with animations (what? Oh nothing...)
Just an idea! :P

btw, only first 151, Im insane, but not THAT much

And before i go:

I think it'd be worth an effort, since it's summertime now. Might have more people joining, what with their schedules loosened.
But then, it seems like it's always the same eight-or-so people that consistently participate.

Second time I went there was a one one one that ended slightly different. Between the two of them they must've emptied half their hoppers without a hit since they were jumping and diving all over the place. As the one from the other team rounded a corner in an attempt to get away I nailed him with three shots between the eyes (about a 30 foot shot, nothing special)
