I should be doing my homework

There is a program called Artrage. It emulates traditional media better than painter and, given the lack of pretense, is, I think, admirable. If you developed this program, my cheers go to you because youre an art STUD. Its got some innovative palette layout also that might not work with a more complicated program but for quick studies is great. The full version costs only 25$ and you can download the trial at . I dont think it is the best choice for finished work, but its fun as hell to sketch with. You should all check it out!
P.S. The pencil tool is the best, I think: makes you feel like Picasso.

II Class Battlecruiser Invincible lands on planet 3 of Regis system to investigate the disappearance of another vessel from earth, identical in class to the Invincible. The last transmission received from the lost ship was also the only one after the landing report: it was a cacophonous tangle of sounds, "like cats being pulled by their tail".
By Stanislaw Lem.

From Zhao's class today. Gosh, he's really something. Really helpful.

I was applying my new formula... itercalate opaques and transparents on the pallette so you get really intense mixes in between. B.Umb.-Thalo(or thalocyanine)-CromiumOxide-IndianYel.-White. No terra rosa, no yello ochre.

My father read "Morskiye Rasskazy" to me when I was ... 5? They are all pretty sad.

joy of camping

Toiyabe national forest, northof yosemite. The best part was, I saw tons of critters of all sizes. The worst part was, you freeze your nuts off at night.
Firstly, heres a painting so sloppy, everyone can tell the thought of bears didnt leave my mind.

Secondly, I fished a drowning dragonfly out of the lake, where it fell in the heat of passion and was abandoned by its mate after having consummated the "thing". It was very sluggish and wouldnt fly away so i brought it with me so I could study it closer . However, it died after a day, without ever regaining the vigour to fly and so I kept it as a cool souvenir. Hey , at least he did the deed and so the halls of dragonfly valhalla probably welcomed him. Lo there do I see my father...
Expectedly, it looked much prettier when it was alive.
