[ART] Practice Makes You Better - Not Perfect6 Years ago, I drew this in my sketchbook. One of my longest-lasting OCs, Kaji Zecht.

Kaji Zecht circa 2009

Today I redrew Kaji as close to as I envisioned him back in the day using all the practice I've had over the years, and this came out.



Practice doesn't make it perfect. But every little bit makes it better, and going back to look at old stuff like this helps you see just how far you've come. Little bit of a morale boost.

Anyways, art'd. I haven't forgotten about the raffle I did a while back, more on that soon I hope.

[ART] Moving Forward Cont'dBit of a break from the Challenge today. If you want to see the most recent journal regarding it, click RIGHT HERE.. As it stands, I've done 2 / 12 pieces.

Now, while today I took a break from focused artwork, I still made sure to draw something. I decided to draw up a hand - because I am horrible at drawing hands and need practice - and an eye and a female body. Why? Because I wanted to lay out some tips that I've learned over time from drawing, hopefully to help other aspiring artists (or veterans) learn a couple things that maybe they'd missed, or perhaps they can even school me on something! So, here's the first edition of my art tips.

Keep Movign Forward Self-ChallengeInspired by Monty's work ethic, I'm decided to undertake a challenge to better improve my Art, and hopefully at the same time gain a bit of exposure, because as an artist that's also a goal of mine, and I'm going to use some lucky RT Community members to do it.

Without a set date, I will take the 12 members who appear in my friends list right now and draw a black and white sketch for them, at no charge, as a gift and I will draw something out of their galleries to use as a base for this.

The people I will be drawing, because they were lucky to appear on my page as I type this are:

@Newbs
@DiMono
@SailorTweek
@Myshu
@Ember
@AmberJae
@RBIG
@Tuckapenguin
@BricBrac
@MadCatKaine
@Bellzebob
and the illustrious @Ray

These 12 will at some point in the near future get a random picture given to them in a random order, and then I will move on and do another 12 after that. If any artists who get tagged want to take on the challenge and pass it forward, maybe we can start a trend of getting people motivated to follow their aspirations.

If you have something you want to do and never had the time or energy or motivation to do it, stop wasting your own time and get to it. If not for yourself, because Monty would have ninja-kicked your ass for not doing it.

"For the Sake of Comfort"Warning: Trigger warning slandering and generally stupid human behavior bashing.

In this day and age, we have a wide group of imbecilic, sheltered morons pushing for things to be "safe" and "comfortable" in schools, universities, in the news, online for the sake of not being "triggered" or offended.

When I heard about this being the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, I took the liberty of reading articles, reading first hand accounts. I've done this before, a number of times on a number of subjects because human behavior fascinates and horrifies me. Like many people who read about the Holocaust, It was deeply, deeply disturbing and greatly unsettling, and that is a good reaction, because it reminds me that I'm human. Did I have trouble sleeping after reading about it? Yes, frankly I did, but we need those kinds of uncomfortable reminders of what human beings are capable of so that we don't forget it, and we never let horrible things happen again.

So today, for the anniversary, for the fraction of a fraction of a fraction of betterment that this does for human society to remember things like this, Take 20 minutes. 10 Minutes, or 5, whaever. Read this single example of a story, go look up the pictures online, read the articles in Wikipedia, and a few months from now, take the time to look up another horrible thing we as a species have done. Put yourself out of your comfort zone and LEARN. The moment you give up education for comfort, you have hindered us as a society and don't belong here anymore.
