    Another point, just remember that for every female who likes "Fifty Shades of Gray", there's probably another female who likes languorous, helpless tied-up bishies... Just sayin'... When women make...

    I just want to point out that all the talk through the centuries of men being the "dominant" and "competitive" ones and women being the "passive" and "nurturing" ones has come primarily from men....

    Being physically more-or-less smaller has nothing to do with being "passive". Women in primitive societies have always been expected to do massive amounts of the actual physical work, they didn't...

    Actually, if it was me, I'd give people half a year to a year before killing their accounts, at least if they already have a history of posting. I know I've gone for three or four months at a stretch...

    Gotta admit, I love this place and would hate to see it go, but every time one of these dramas happens, a bit more of the life blood leaks out as people drift off elsewhere. I remember what it was...

    The problem with Facebook, Tumblr, and similar sites is that they're absolutely TERRIBLE for having any kind of in-depth group discussion. Or even a basic conversation. They're fine for sharing and...

    Bad teachers: teachers who spend 90% of their classes evangelizing for PETA instead of talking about the subject they're actually supposed to teach.

    Also teachers who walk into class, glance at...

    Also crossing my fingers that the shop comes back in some form... There was a lot of good stuff in that shop. (Also hoping the streaming classes become accessible again someday.)

    But yes. Being...

    Ha, this is SO true! Sometimes things don't sink in until years later and you have that "Aha" moment where you suddenly understand what your teacher was trying to get at.

    I remember when my Junior...

    My parents were poverty-line pretty much up until my teens, I was homeschooled, we did fine. But it does take the right kind of parents: smart, dedicated, and open-minded. Also Dad worked from home,...

    I don't think you can make a blanket judgment. It depends on too many things. In particular, WHAT is the teacher teaching? How much do they know about the subject they're teaching? And how good are...

    So you're copying drawings and copying photos... Are you doing anything from life? Are you doing any gestures from life? Gestures from life can help you build speed and confidence, and confidence...

    Actually, the declining quality of American education has absolutely nothing to do with how much time kids spend in school and EVERYTHING to do with the quality of education they get there. (Summer...

    The really sad thing is that it's not just grading and graduating that gets screwed up... Senior year is the time when students build up the body of work that will get them started in the real world...

    This is true. Some art schools don't even HAVE any business related classes. I was lucky in that mine did, and also that all the art teachers were working professionals who could give advice on how...

    I roomed with a bunch of fashion majors over the years, and one thing I can tell you for sure, if you want to have anything to do with fashion or costuming you'd better learn everything you can about...

    I don't think "being an idiot" is a bannable offense...

    Laughable, but not bannable.

    (And not "bankable", either. Thank you for your creative input, iOS auto-correct.)

    The example is a drawing of a building that already exists, so all the artist needed to do was to draw the building that was already in front of them (or a photo of the building...) So no, they...

    Of course you can learn without taking an actual class, many of us started by self-teaching...

    I used to have a Canon scanner, it worked fine with my Mac and had great quality scans... That was a while ago but Canon tends to be pretty reliable.

    Not if you're actually trying to learn anything about seeing and translating values, no.

    If you really want to learn about value, you'll get a lot further by drawing with plain old pencil or...

    Any decent flatbed scanner should work fine, and you can get scanners in the $200 range that should give you perfectly acceptable quality as long as you scan at a high enough resolution (300dpi or...
