Free Criterion movies all weekend!
You must watch them, you must and you must tell all your friends to watch them!
If you want to see, hear, taste the greatest things EVER!
Sorry, but it's just REALLY exciting (to me at least)
A good art helping exerciseYou know the old saying "Garbage in, Garbage Out", here's an idea I have to help your art or just your mind in general go here:
sign up an account (if you haven't already)
go through a list and every time you see a movie/show you've watched/like rate it and click "more like this" and go through that list and do the same.
Maybe you'll find a new thing to watch and get motivated and make some interesting art and maybe learn something, too!.
So excitedI'm going to a convention this weekend and I will be cosplaying as Pearl (from Steven Universe).
I'm on Qwerteehttp://www.qwertee.com/product/the-definition-of-funny
You'll be the coolest kid on your block with my new "Tip O'Neill in a dress" t-shirt!
Not dead...yetBeen busy with work, I'm also going to volunteer/cosplay at a local convention. Kind of have artist block/focusing on stuff off this site. Not much going on.
The new episode of Sailor Moon Crystalhttp://www.hulu.com/watch/682974
Watch, in case you haven't already
Some recent comedy goldIn honor of the recent death of Joan Rivers, I give you a little, this nugget of joy that happened not but a few minutes ago that would have made her proud...
(Comment on :IconKessieLou:'s Sailor Senshi "redesigns" (I know she hasn't seen the new series or re-dubbing because she still calls them by their "English" names, I have no problem with that, I still call them "The Scouts", sometimes!)
Me: Have you seen the new show!
:iconKessieLou::No, but I want to!
Me: You can watch it on Hulu, BTW I still hate you!
This song basically sums up my relationship with Kessie:
Just watched Jodorowsky's DuneI think you should watch it, too, you might like it.
I would seriously love to see an animated adaptation of what he wanted to do and make it totally faithful to Jodorowsky, Moebuis, Giger, and everyone else's drawings and notes. Maybe with characters who slightly resemble/sound like Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, and Salvador Dali as well. Plus, someone who can do music like Pink Floyd and Magma.
While we're at it maybe we do Terry Gilliam's Don Quxtioe, too!
Critiquing, do's and dont'sSo i almost always request critiques on my art, and i also get a lot of them too (thank you so much guys/galls) and i've noticed some critiquers have some misconceptions about critiques, their role, how to do it, etc.
Now i don't want to critique someone's critiuque, i rarely do that because people take it as being defensive about the art that is critiqued. So i'll just make this journal to hopefully inform/educate some of you about critiquing.
-If an artist requests critiques, and you have something to say about it then do use the critique widget to leave a critique. Don't critique in the comment's section though. I know some of you are more shy, but if you're bold enough to write a critique then put it in its proper place, that's what the widget is fore. This does not apply to artists who do not have a premium and can't requests critiques through the widget.
-Do read the artists comments on the artwork first. They might offer hints on what

8 Legal Cases Every Photographer Should KnowSource: http://petapixel.com/2014/10/28/8-legal-cases-every-photographer-know/
Understanding your legal rights as a photographer can often be confusing and overwhelming. From copyright infringement to fair use to DMCA, there are a number of legal concepts that every photographer should be familiar with. Here are eight important legal cases that are illustrative of these concepts and the importance of registering your copyright.
1. Andrew Paul Leonard v Stemtech Health Sciences, Inc
Key concept: Copyright infringement and registration
Microphotography expert Andrew Paul Leonard’s photographs of bone marrow stem cells were stolen and used on the Stemtech website and other marketing materials.
The court ruled in Leonard’s favor for copyright infringement awarding him $1.6m in actual damages. However, he was denied statutory damages because he didn’t register his images until after the infringement occurred.
2. Nussenzweig v DiCorcia
Key concepts: Right of Privacy/Publici
