Okay, I really want a lens like this for my DSLR. I love macro shots like this.

A lot of people who want to learn art give up very quickly, believing they don't have the ability to learn.

Talent is a lie though. It doesn't exist.

Sometimes people will try and not learn as quickly as they think they should. Yet nobody would pick up a violin and expect to learn to play all on their own without anyone or anything to guide them. There are scales and techniques to practice.

For art, this involves re-learning how to see things, so you can form specifics about the shape, rather than just creating a symbol of it in your mind. And this involves developing the coordination for mark making. And how to construct shapes so they look like something.

It's no wonder people get frustrated and give up when they try to figure out the entire history of art on their own.

Use some resources and learn! I promise it's a lot more effective to practice *well* than to just hope that scribbling on paper will make you better.

"When product begins spreading, WALK over the application area at a NORMAL WALKING PACE. (6 seconds for a 25' strip, or 12 seconds for a 50' strip)." -- lawn care product label

I find this emphasized definition of "normal pace" more amusing than I probably should.

@ziphi You *might* enjoy this article, shared with me by someone over on IRC…

The analogy at the ending in particular :grey_fox:

This morning I had a involving a friend's fluffy character… as expressed by toots. As in, my dream consisted of the Mastodon UI, reading toots posted by this friend.

Doctor, I think I have a problem.

"So I Created A Fursona Generator..." by CodeParade, Fun stuff!
> Using a hybrid generative adversarial network, I trained a generator to create new fursonas, convert images to fursonas, and edit them with sliders using principal component analysis.

Chapter 1, Page 1 finished!
I've decided to keep it line art, so I don't burn myself out trying to get these done at a reasonable pace.

I'll put a transcript in a reply to this.

I just discovered that exists

(There are many good reasons to find this useful! But or enthusiasts might be especially interested.) "Non-Euclidean Worlds Engine", 5m:14s
Overlapping rooms, tunnels longer on inside, walking uphill both ways… Feels like a game engine @Azure might make!

And it’s finished!

It could use a bit more contrast and effort, but I have no intention of doing that, honestly.

I love fox eyes. They’re like beautiful golden jewels.

I rather enjoy Technology Connection's explanations - and now a bit more of and Systems makes sense! Also, fun name: "The Superheterodyne Radio: No really, that's its name", 12m31s

I got my nephew a Switch for Christmas he's been asking for one for ages xx

I think the appliances at home knew I was coming back from college. Fingers crossed the washing machine either starts working again or is cheap to fix.

So I tried out the Mastodon profile directory. Kind of unsettling when you're the only one that opted into it…
