    That's what I do.

    1) "Oh hey, my black shirt is falling apart"
    2) Go to shops, buy basically indentical black shirt
    3) Mission accomplished, now I can stop clothes shopping.

    I quite like food shopping or loitering in 2nd hand bookstores, clothes shopping though ugh.. no.

    About 70% of my pants have either big holes in the pocket or are starting to wear away in the crotch/knees because I cannot stand buying jeans. I'm tallish for a girl, skinny but with wide hips. It leads to a "Fits hips, fits calves, is long enough. Pick two" situation. Going shopping for pants is always an hour long process that ends with me walking away with only one pair of pants that kinda-sorta fit. Doesn't help that for some reason clothing companies can't come to an agreement on what a certain size means for girl's jeans. I've had 32s too tight to make it up my thighs and 26s fall right off of me.

    Same here. I hate clothes shopping, too. I've got enough clothes as I need, all I need to do is keep them clean. When something finally falls apart, THEN I'll bother with a replacement.

    Whenever something I like wears out I go to buy a new one just like it and I discover that either they changed the design so that it is no longer comfortable, they stopped making it altogether or the local store no longer carries it and the places that do don't ship to Canada. It's like I only wear things other people hate.

    I disappear for nearly 2 weeks and come back to a mess. I'll be spam hunting this weekend.

    dpaint - I have a dishwasher - it's called my husband. I would have loved to seen the video of it.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    See, this is the problem!

    When I find things I like, I really need to lay back a few spares. 'cause, doesn't look like there's gonna be replacements when the old ones wear out!

    I blame the Chinese.

    Hell, they make most of our clothes here in North America. . .

    Is there an actual reason for why ctrl+z puts you back on the previously used layer in photoshop or is it just designed to drive people using it insane?

    Its the one photoshop thing ill never get used to in my life, always fall for the same.

    What ive been doing to counter that (at least when i already have things inside the layers) is just use the move tool (v) with the auto select option turned on and set to layer. I temporarily select the tool holding ctrl and click the pixels in the layer i want to be in before i lay down the first stroke.

    I was thinking about this, i get food and water for a week and also a camping set.
    Then i go into the mountains alone, just with a bunch of sketchbooks, pencils, etc...
    Then i spend a whole week in the mountains drawing from life during the day without any of the distractions of this crazy modern world.
    After that, maybe i get better at drawing, or maybe the beasts eat me during night or maybe i became some kind of creepy hermit.

    Hmm. Thinking of joining a boxing program at this local gym (What better way to learn how to draw fighting?), but I'm too cheap to want to pay $70 a month for the program itself.

    That really isn't much, but part of my brain's telling me to go no higher than $40. Man, I'm a cheapskate.

    I guess I can do the free week trial and see what goes from there.

    Speaking of prices, Art and Fear is too small to have cost me $13. I expected something bigger.

    Speaking of monthly bills, I really need to get cable. Netflix is nice and all, but I seriously need to become aware of what animation studios exist these days and what's actually being made besides the Pony stuff that's so damn popular. The problem with cable is that all the providers here require a two-year contract, and I'm only living on a lease that lasts a year...Beh. The second I sign that contract I have to extend my lease. For two years.

    Seventy bucks a month doesn't seem too bad for boxin' lessons.

    But, has the school fielded any champs in MMA, the Olympics, or plain old regulated USA boxing?

    Plus, what kind of facilities/workout equipment do they give you access to for that price?

    Got my copy of A&F for 5 bucks used-- yeah, it's a bit thin for full price! (But, a good book, none-the-less, though, I find myself arguing about a thing or two with the authors. . .)

    Heh! Keep seducing yourself re cable!

    A friend posted this to me. Not necessarily Cheer me up material but it's food for thought, considering what I do -between- doing my studies is just vegging out on movies and Facebook and Youtube and consuming media. Is drawing both work and play to some of you guys?

    Pretty nice philosophy on paper but doesn't quite work that way. I've seen people who can barely make rent let alone have time to work on 'getting rich'.

    I don't think so at all. Their website is a bit lacking, but here it is. http://www.thecomplexsavannah.com/default.html

    There are a few others I could look into around town (this one is much larger and does have affiliation to MMA fighters, but I have no idea where the hell it's supposed to be) , but I remembered this one when I passed by it the other day, and it's the only one I could know how to find without mapquest.

    Wherever I end up I know I'm gonna make a huge embarrassment of myself if I do this. It'll be great. I don't plan on staying with it for long. I just want to learn the right way you're supposed to move and the right kind of stances so I can physically do it myself in a mirror when I need to, which is better than just relying on secondhand photos and videos. It's a bit like buying your own props for reference. And it'd be good to have a little regular exercise.

    I don't care about much as long as the place is professional enough and I can get what I'm looking for.

    Quote Originally Posted by Kamber Parrk View Post

    That's what I get for my silly "don't buy used unless I can physically touch it" rule when it comes to books. Only certain types will I make exceptions and not worry.

    My problem is that I hate getting marked up books if I can help it. And Art and Fear seems like the type of book a previous owner would go all over the place with highlighter or ink to point out THOSE lines that really spoke to them.

    The only time I'll tolerate a marked up book is if I pick something up from a used bookstore that's long out of print and have little chance to find again.

    EDIT: http://www.comcast.com/move-transfer.html Oh! Looks like the whole two year contract could be ok. And it seems I can get Comcast without a contract! It just costs more.

    Dammit, I hate spending money on things that aren't food. Gotta strike an agreement with my roommates to split the bill, it only makes sense. Supposed to be meeting some new ones next month, after my current one moves out, anyway.

    I just discovered browsing DeviantART (I know, I know) for Batwoman fanart that there is an infuriating amount of people trying to mimic JH Williams III's style with no idea how light/shadow works. I'm not that great of an artist, but I'm pretty sure randomly dropping shadows and highlights all over the place isn't going to magically make your art look professional.
