What Do I Consider ART...It's 3:37AM, I have a horrible headache, and I've just drank 1,5 litres of juice, which to me translates to 'oh hai stomach ache'. So I guess it's the perfect opportunity to talk about what I consider art and why...As many of you might have noticed, I use the terms 'arts' and 'artworks' VERY rarely here; usually I say 'pics' or 'drawings' or 'uploads'. The reason is that I actually detest calling everything automatically 'art' just because it's created. In fact, I detest all kinds of assumptions regarding something magically automatically happening. That's because anything created by a human being can fall into two categories: art and exploitation.Also, please keep in mind everything I'll say here is my opinion, not yours. If yours is different, it doesn't make it automatically superior.With that said...I. True Art Is Born From SufferingA piece of art is like a baby: childbirth is one of the goriest things in the world. A sc

Announcing the CRLiterature Book Club!Here at CRLiterature, we wanted to find a fun way to get the community reading -- and reading together. What better way is there than to have a new book to enjoy as a group every month?How do you participate in Book Club? Here are your simple instructions:1. Acquire the book.2. Read the book.3. Stay tuned to the CRLiterature group for discussion journals and chats.BONUS: We will be giving out arbitrary prizes to some participants each month!We are hoping to select books that push the community's boundaries, in terms of what we're already reading, but that will also have mass appeal. We are also going to be choosing books that are widely available across English-speaking nations (for now Book Club is English-only) and across e-reading platforms. By rotating moderators, we are hoping that selections will be diverse, both in terms of style and genre, and in terms of author background and point of view.We are also excited at the possibility of

tumblr Safety Followup4chan v tumblrI mentioned it briefly yesterday, and thanks to some people filling in the blanks I didn’t have at the time I feel the need to update this with more information for everyone’s sake.Apparently what happened is that a couple feminists on tumblr (most sources only mentioning on average 4 people) tried to start a “let’s take down 4chan” campaign. 4chan (the source of some of the lowliest, filthiest, scummiest people on the planet), didn’t like that. So they’ve retaliated with a “take down tumblr” campaign. Please bear in mind that there is no real evidence to support this and it might all just be 4chan stirring up shit themselves for the lulz.4chan users created multiple accounts and then proceeded to spam the popular tumblr tags with excessive amounts of gore, porn, child pornography, and have been taking “selfie” images of underage tumblr users and photoshop them into porn. They've also
ANIMATION FACT....The conventional Anime style (big eyes, large heads & proportions) origin traces back to Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989/Astro Boy, Kimba The White Lion, Black Jack), unanimously known as 'The Godfather of Anime' who was heavily influenced by the style's of Max Fleischer's BETTY BOOP & Disney's BAMBI. Anime's signature style was derived from American animation styles.See how we influence each other?

Free bustshot chibi request (CLOSED)Like the title says,I'm reopening the requests The first journal has too much info and it's making me dizzy so I'm writing a new oneOk,first things first, these slots that I'm opening now is meant for those who are not on the "special people" list (Check my first journal) Why? Because out of 25 of the previous slots,only 4 are people who are not on the "special people" list and I don't think it's fair to others if I only let those on the list to get one. So I'm sorry if you missed but don't worry! I'll have another event like this again(though not soon><) I'm just gonna retype the rules,making them simpler for you guys to read
ART STYLES“You stole ________’s style.” “This reminds me of _______’s style.” “You’re copying.”No, You can not “copy” a style because no one “owns” a style. WE ALL START OUT SOMEWHERE Do you believe that all artists are simply born with natural talent? That, without looking at another piece of art their own life, they are able to produce master pieces?Of course not. They have to learn. They learn from artists in the past. They have teachers. They study other people’s artworks.That’s how life works. You have to learn from somebody to get somewhere. If no one is willing to share what they know or learn from others, we can't make advances in anything. (ie. the medical field)One can not simply wake up one morning and produce a masterpiece. They have to learn, practice and look fo
