When a man faces fear, his soul is tested. What he was born to seek… What he was born to achieve… His true nature will become clear.
my sole motivation for doing almost anything is so people leave me the hell alone
Thank you! I’ve never heard of sumopaint haha but I use photoshop cs4. If you’re able to get it I would recommend photoshop cs6 though! I’ve also seen a lot of great art come out of adobe illustrator and paint tool sai, although I’ve never personally used them.
Just as violence begets violence, hating hate only breeds more of it. Anger is predictable. Throwing things and making signs is predictable. Amassing to grumble and complain is a dark meditation and again, predictable. The truth is if you feed off any system, you are a parasite to that system. Your programming may have convinced you that only visible action, highly explosive and loud, will change the world. But war is war is war is war and war is always fought in ignorance of the greater truth. The hardest lesson humanity is facing today is simple: Both sides of the battlefield have formed a symbiotic relationship with one another and are essentially one body. There is no “right side” because simply being out there means you are part of the war and therefore, part of the problem. Changing the world begins as a subtle beauty. It is calm reflection that brings about great waves of change. It is the realization and destruction of Ego that is the tidal wave of social modification. If you want to end something in this world, you have to end it in yourself first. If you want to rid the world of something, rid yourself of it first. If you feel you have a face to yell at or a bone to pick —- count yourself among the problem.
thank you! but no, I never really took art classes in college (I’m an english major atm)… I failed watercolor once if that counts? haha I don’t know, it just became a hobby I guess. I taught myself some photoshop and I have been practicing with some traditional media lately.
ahh this is so nice! thank you!
