Always treat companies with intense cynicism and try to exploit them back as much as you can. The big mistake that will fuck you over in life is being a team player, because you’ll waste years and years of your life until you wake up one day having made some company a lot of money and having made yourself shit.Molly Crabapple in this interview. This gives me the thinks.
What helped me the most was drawing from a nude model. If you have a community art center or uni near by, they may offer nude drawing sessions.
The real human form in front of you - with all of its imperfections and light/shadow is the best teacher. Better than photos, since you can actually walk around them, see where things turn.
If you can’t get access to naked people - go to a public place, coffee shop/bar/mall/park ect - and quickly sketch people.
If you’re more comfortable with just sketching with pics first - try to make sure to find some real humans. No air brushed photoshopped models.
I’ve got this board on Pinterest that have some decent photos I’ve come across online:
As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously? Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?
I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it.
But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened? Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?
I am going to reblog this quote every year.
White people should apologize for any Nickleback album released. Ever.
