Ta! :)

Anatomy practice tonight. No references. Testing my memory. Heads getting tighter every time I do one. Feel like I'm on the home straight. Torsos still have a long way to go but more of it is making sense as time goes on.

moar doodling on the general theme of artistic license as an excuse for shoddy anatomy. Carving out a niche for myself here. My sculpts have so much anatomy. The best anatomy. Ignore those liberal media anatomy books, they publish fake anatomy. I'ma build a model and make Loomis pay for it.

P3nT4gR4m I think this is probably the coolest thing going on with the board right now. Not that other things aren't amazing or worthwhile, but watching you make brain-images out of light and electrons with a crown and magic wand, so to speak, is truly awesome to me!

You think its awesome to you? You should try being me. It's honestly like watching someone else doing this shit at times. I'm just a passive observer.  My job is to wear weird googles and watch my imagination pop into existence in front of me. I used to envy talented people but I'll settle for fluking semi cool shit as the next best thing. I don't think it matters how many times I do it,  I'm always gonna feel like a fake. No way is real art this easy.

I'd bet the first stone carver that upgraded from a bronze chisel to iron felt something similar.

This is just my opinion, but I figure that most often the artist gets in their own way by trying to judge themselves by their works. The secret is in continuing to do things until it's too easy, then push yourself and either make more than ever or try something totally new. You're clearly getting joy out of this new thing and making "more" with better tools.

I sing to myself very often, though less than I used to. I'm not a pro, I can't read music very well other than a choir staff. I usually sing alone and that's because I fear to be judged. When I go to sing karaoke or hit an open mic with my bro, who equally unschooled taught himself guitar and a bunch of other instruments (he's waiting on reeds for his new bagpipes  :cry:) he and I show folks a new thing no radio or album can do. It's just a moment, but it's always "good stuff" even when we fuck up. It's the "just doing it" over and over that made those moments happen.
It's that were "not artists" in a sense. The judgement came from folks seeing the product!

Keep on keeping on P3nT4gR4m!

Aye! I reread that post and it kinda comes across as downbeat but that's really not what I was meaning. Been coming to terms with what I've started calling "the myth of talent". I'm fast coming to the conclusion that there's no such thing as talent, in and of itself. What "untalented" people refer to as "talent" is actually just someone who has practiced something enough times to get good at it.

I'm pretty active on the oculus forum and there's a good mix there of pro guys, the dude who made the Hulk for the movie Avengers Assemble, the chap who did some of the transformers in Revenge of the fallen, and then there's total novices who just enjoy having a scribble and then there's me, somewhere in the middle and I'm looking at the ninja guys and thinking "fuck me, if only..." and then I'm looking at the noobs and thinking "All I have on them is six or seven months studying anatomy" and that's the  trick, that's where the "talent" comes from - work. Practice. Study.

And people say "You're talented" or "I wish I had your talent" and that's a crock of shit. I don't have talent, I just put in the graft and those, ninja fuckers who get paid to work on movies, the godlike fuckers? They just been at it longer than me but, having been at this for half a year or more now, I was kinda waiting for the talent fairy to pay me a visit or something. Flash of light, heavenly chorus kinda deal and it never happened and I don't feel talented. All I feel is I know my way round a skull and bones and I know how to plug the muscles in cos I been staring at them for half a year.

The magic of VR and Medium is I'm not wrestling with interface anymore so I kinda got a free pass learning all that technical bullshit and that fast forwarded me at least six months to a year in terms of my capability. That's the cheaty part but I don't mind. I got there a year quicker than I would have done but I would have got here eventually. I miss the notion of talent, tho. Like I'm doing stuff now that a year ago I would have looked at in awe like a magician done it and now I can do it but I don't feel like a magician. It's a minor irritation, tho. I love being able to get stuff out my head and give birth to these creations. That more than makes up for the complete lack of voodoo.

I prefer "kung-fu" as a concept. It means something like "hard work". The power of sheer bloody minded repetition and incremental improvement.

It's not a complex concept and has little to do with martial art per se. When i worked in the laundry I got VERY good at "laundry physics" over time. The first year I went to bed every night with my arms in agony, but with time and tiger balm as needed I both got stronger and learned the more effective methods of working with the often shitty equipment. Because the work was boring I'd make a game of it for myself. Where do I stand for best leverage? What can I do other than deadlift this whole goddamn thing again because fucking Gary left me with the same problem AGAIN? How fast can I untie this knot, drop load, and refasten? What are the odds that load needs to go up to the hospital because someone dropped the ball again? After a while it was like a dance through a shit storm that left me mostly clean. The last year and a half when I switched shifts got more "esoteric" and I had to deal with a different problem set, but by then whenever I had to do the heavy shit... it wasn't even like effort. It helped that I have a very strong body and high endurance, but the process of learning actually settled me into doing less of that for more effect.

I'm also rather accurate with a wet towel now. I can flip light switches. My throwing accuracy is pretty good too.

I'm hoping to get that accomplished feeling back through formal martial art training. I'm never giving my heart to a workplace again, but I have no regrets about what I learned to Do.

Totally get what you mean with the kung-fu thing. I have this rough concept of "Ninja" that I aspire to. Immersed in the task, whether it be paddling a kayak or making a cup of coffee, I try to approach it with the same focus on perfecting the action. On doing it the way a ninja would do it. Immersed in a flow state, striving for perfect execution. Quote from Last Samurai always at the forefront of my mind - "From the moment they wake, they devote themselves to the perfection of whatever they pursue."

BTW, I might have said this before but it bears repeating - VR is like an amplifier for flow state. In medium there's a default background. When you first load it up, generic HDR blue sky and clouds but you can turn this off and pick a plain background colour. Instant sense of sensory deprivation. You can feel all the visual distraction melt away. Actually feel it, like a jolt. Like when a loud background noise stops and you realise some part of your brain has been paying attention to it but you don't notice til it's gone.

I start getting uncomfortable in the rift after an hour or so but that hour is guaranteed perfect focus and perfect flow-state every time. Medium is the only thing I've used in VR that's anything like this but I'm predicting the technique could be used in any productivity software.

I saw your use the term ninja and thought I'd share the bit about kung-fu. I tried to explain it to my shitbag manager once when I he watching me work at speed and be in so fluid from task to task, but he just laughed in the way that someone who doesn't understand but wishes to still feel like an authority will when confronted with shit they fundamentally don't get. And gave me the old "keep up the good work".

The QC that I mostly reported to was ex-army of the sort that they teach all of the Macgyver type of shit to and one of the only people from there that I keep in touch with had far more character and real world experience. He understood. We were very different guys, but similar kinds of crazy.

The eyes on that little dude with the tentacles are dopeshit!
