    Lifeless? I dunno, I think it's pretty cool; I especially like the composition. Love your illustration exhibit, too.

    WIP

    Thanks Cider! I appreciate that. I kinda get low about my art sometimes cuz EVERYBODY has this kick-ass camera angle that they can use to make their stuff look AWESOME. i am TRYING to be more dynamic though. The illustration thing was awesome!

    Here is a preview of something I HAVE to see through to the end. I hope. *slaps self* NO! I WILL!!!

    Words of Wisdom from Jason Manley
    There's an otherwise useless thread in the Lounge that's been closed, but it contained this post from Jason that I thought shouldn't slip into obscurity. So here it is:

    Originally Posted by Jason Manley
    first, you are not trapped in your situation. You can get out of any situation you want if you are willing to take the pain of doing all the things you dont want to do..the long hard way. The fruitful way.

    At seventeen I was homeless and orphaned, taking care of my fourteen year old brother who I somehow managed to keep in school. I had dropped out of school. I did two years of wasting time eventually trying to get my head on straight. At nineteen I was homeless again. Scraped together enough money to get my ass to arizona to study art. Got a temp apt to get me through to the end of the month and took a job at subway (applied all over til I found something). The subway job paid enough money to sometimes eat and pay my small studio rental. I went back to school to get my graduation and was working full time (thought I needed to graduate from HS to get into a good college). Trust me...it was fucking painful. I transferred to a community college the following year and slowly got better and better jobs. Worked telemarketing fundraising to afford a 1977 datsun and art supplies. Shittiest job ever but paid double what subway did. Worked three jobs during the summer to get caught up including going to alaska to work the salmon docks across the country. I did not give a shit what it was, if it paid for my goals to be met and didnt involve anything illegal, I did it.

    As time went on I realized I needed to arrange my priorities again. I took a night time job so I could exhaust all my energies in my art and studies. Eventually got a job at AT&T...Att this is Jason how may I help you?...I was still far behind those who had life handed to them their whole life. However, I was catching up. In time I realized it was not a chase against others but to only my own race to my goals. Kept the nose down. Chose friends who worked on art or learning always. Ignored the time wasting folk who never will amount to anything other than regular. Grew up around enough of those to realize the difference. After three and a half years I took my first art job and quit my shit job...have lived with and from art ever since.

    By the time I was 29 I had achieved every goal I had reached for when I first set out. That is when I realized it was time to set new goals...each time this happens it feels like starting over...get something done..start again...in time your life becomes what you want it to be. Even those of money have to do this if their life involves learning, skill, and growth. It is not money that holds people back...is just their own mind.

    The hard part about certain situations is not everyone is told they can do and reach their goals if they just work their ass off starting RIGHT NOW. Some know it and wont work for whatever reason. They listen to that voice that says I want to chill and watch tv or i dont feel like it. Others have addictions or mental issues keeping them from growing and learning. I didnt want to be any of that. I wanted to do cool stuff...to have an interesting life...and to work in a creative way.

    Hard manual labor growing up taught me that my mind would rot if I chose that kind of path. I wanted something to use my mind. Bored if not...and with boredom comes making trouble or distraction. Gotta turn that into work ethic...no choice. Carl Dobsky was telling me this about the atelier every day. It has to be just uncomfortable enough to make the coolest thing to do be art. If there is a blaring tv or anything else, than there are other options. Options that keep one from not working to reach their goals.

    Complacency is the womb of mediocrity. You clearly are not complacent. So do something about it in every free second of your day. All this wandering around doing not a whole lot but thinking isn't getting you much done. It is however, giving you a taste of life many others would never have the guts to explore. Just dont stay down there too long without coming up for air.



    Good luck,



    Jason

    Lakai, a la bapsi, Exhno. Thank you! I'll keep moving forward! My lack of posts lately has been because I am trying to finish more polished pieces to give my family for christmas. Because I have more than one family I have to make multiple pieces. The positive side of that is me geting to make more art. Yeah! In the meantime my friend has a cat and he wouldn't stay still BUT I caught him a few times and drew the furry beast.

    Approx 30sec each.

    Here is a 22x30 I drew in pen spirals of Mr. House. I fought with this so hard. It will now be someone's Christmas present!

    I decided to take a journey through your sketchbook and I have to say you have improved a boat load. I also find it really cool as well as inspirational that you got a quote from Jason Manely, I also feel bad for all the times I've wasted my time over the television or pointlessly browsing the internet. I also wanted to ask how do you approach the form exercises where you draw different profiles(side, front, top etc.) and then draw it in perspective?

    THANK YOU! Harbinger!

    kamikazel33t: This is actually not as difficult. The best way to practice is to find boxes in your house and draw them A LOT! When you get to 100 tell me how much you have improved. I guarantee it. After you do that I can give you another assignment that will make you better! YEAH!


    I watched Paranorman yesterday and my sketchbook has been getting iiiiiiiiit
