    • The Beatles?

      8 years ago

      42ender

      people may think The Beatles may not still be relevant anymore but I think it's pretty obvious they are. If it weren't for them I might not have ever started learning guitar. the thread goes like this:

      Until The Beatles Rock Band was announced I was not at all interested in music video games. but that game got me sucked in. After getting good at the game I decided to get a real guitar and now I can play well enough to teach myself more advanced concepts not covered in the lessons I took last semester.

      I know several people who don't know Beatles songs verses other bands and even more people who say that The Beatles have not mattered since the 70's all i can say is you people can suck it.

    • Progress

      I always see progress and just laugh at it. some times it seems like so much can happen so quickly, like in school. 3 months ago i didn't know shit about Trees and now I'm helping others create simple binary trees. other things like music are the same way, It's always fun to pick up my guitar and see how much better I am getting, and with that the better you get the more you want to play. But there is a tail to every coin. at times I see progress in myself and others around me but other times i see people who's lives seem to have stagnated. people who keep feeling like their lives are going somewhere but from the outside they are clearly stuck in the past. now I am not blind to the idea of this applying to me but there are others who clearly need to learn what "growing up" really is.

      while i think Rock Band and Guitar Hero are way fun. they pale compared to the real thing. minus getting started out. sore fingers, slow transitions, and sounds awful; but damn is my instructor good. in 4 months we will go over what other private lessons would take 3 years to teach. Now i just need the Squire for Rock Band 3 to be released.

      the new year is only a few hours away so i decided to write up my gaming to do list. I know everyone has already said this but damn there are too damn many games coming out next year. A quick list of things i want to play seemed nice at first but after a little searching for other games next year started to expand the list.

      This looks to be a great year for gaming smiley13.gif .

      It said, "it's good! And very well for me (or) and it's very good for me" depends on the inflection.
      haha. and negatory good buddy, although the quote looks super familiar.

      That my friend was a combination of Spanish and Latin. Lol.
      I could throw some Yiddish, German and Mandarin at you too, but at that point I'd be mostly winging it. I'm just starting Mandarin, and I only know phrases in Yiddish and German and mostly cursing at that smiley0.gifsmiley0.gif

      I suppose that wouldn't be too bad. All in all weather isn't too horrible around in Maine, at least we get the four seasons. I'm enjoying it for now. smiley0.gif

      And who doesn't enjoy a little banter now and again?

      True enough story! I fail to find a solid point to disagree with you at. smiley6.gifsmiley1.gif
      That being said it's much colder out here though!
      And I know about the mountains. Trust me the east has nothing on the west coast. Hell I lived in the Trinity Alps for a good couple of years. I know what you mean about height.

      I don't necessarily agree to that!! Maine has some pretty intense snow!! smiley6.gif

      Eesh. That most definitely sucks! smiley4.gif So are you local to UT or just there for school? Because that definitely doesn't sound like my cup of tea.
      Sorry that you're sore from helping your buddy move, I will soon understand your pain again. I have to find a new place to live here shortly as my lease is up for my apt next month.
      As for the snow, I don't mind it too much. I'm pretty used to it by now.
      So what else is new?

      So why is the local church involved with the community to such a degree? Regardless, don't let the lack of an amazing social life IRL get you down. We're pretty cool here. Heck I like more of the people on here most of the time then I do the ones I see. Has it stopped snowing yet? We got hit with a decent storm yesterday. I wasn't too happy.

      Fail on me for not getting back to you sooner.
      As for SD, I'm assuming things are great there. I don't live there anymore, I'm out in Maine now doing the college thing.
      How are you?

    • lukemckay FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Webcomic Maker

      What would you be doing if not drawing?

      I'd be back at the hospital working as a nurse.

      What classes, or other education, have you had?

      I'm a licensed and fully trained nurse. No art classes. Some in highschool, long before computers were ever used for art other than the movie Tron.

      What hardware and software do you use?

      I have a run of the mill PC and Photoshop (CS2) but I pretty much just use the MS paint tools

      How long does it take you to do a drawing (RT and others)?

      A typical comic takes me six to eight hours on average.. though today's is taking a lot longer. it happens sometimes. I'm not really known for my speed.

      How long have you been drawing?

      I've always doddled, but I've been giving drawing a serious go now since 2000

      What got you started into drawing?

      a friend and the stuff I seen on the internet

      What jobs are open to someone in your position?

      I would love to get a job as an environment artist for videogames... that is the high demand for artists. Everyone mostly draws anime characters, but environment / architectural artists are in demand and I'm practicing to get better at that, so that one day I can work on a videogame.

      How much do you love your work?

      I freaking love being paid to draw all day. It never gets old.

      How long did it take for you to get great drawing right off the top of your head?

      a great drawing? some of my more elaborate works have taken days and weeks. As I've said, not very speedy at art.

      What other work does RT give you besides the weekly comics?

      I design a lot of the t-shirts, and odd graphic here and there for the site.. like the milestones, I drew those. That kinda stuff. Most of it never sees the light of day. Just sits idle on my HD

      Any advice for upcoming artists, and your many fans?

      There are lots of ways to get into art. Do your way, you know it best.
      ..
      but if you find your way isn't working, you might want to change what you're doing / how you're doing it.

      In art as with a lot of jobs, 10% is your ability and 90% is the person, are they reliable, do they work hard, do they work late, and are they a dick?

      it's a pretty cliche answer, but it's really true. I guarantee if I took one very talented lazy artist and pitted him / her against a hard working, attentive guy / gal who draws stick figures.. the stick figure artist would win.

      drawing goes okay, was mostly just doing boring graphics stuff today. And I don't really get that annoyed to be asked a lot for drawings, that's a blessing.

      Knowing RvB, there's bound to be all kinds of weird extras and games and what not. I wouldn't mind getting them myself ^-^

      what all is in the extra features. if there is enough it may justify getting the set.

      I'd rather have a hard copy in case of internet issues. Plus, I figure I may as well get the collectors set because of all the extra content, and the wishful thinking of ever going to a good convention where they are there. But hey, to each their own.
