To Capture Beauty XIII All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. - T. E. Lawrence

To Capture Beauty XII Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
Building art is a synthesis of life in materialised form. We should try to bring in under the same hat not a splintered way of thinking, but all in harmony together.
In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.

For the Love of Ib So I have fallen in love with a horror game and that game is Ib (actually pronouced as "Eve" but try telling that to my mind). Beautiful in its simplicity of game play and amazing story-line, it is a definite must play. And it seems my admiration is not only limited to myself, as you will see the many spectacular artists inspired by this game!
Some Information about the game
IB is a freeware horror game developed through the use of RpgMaker 2000/2003 by kouri and translated by VGperson.
The story revolves around Ib, a nine-year-old girl who visits an art museum with her parents. She looks around the museum on her own, and the lights suddenly began to flicker. She realizes that all the people have suddenly vanished without a trace. Ib soon discovers the mysteries of the museum, and the dangers that inhabit it. Source: http://rpgmaker.wikia.com/wiki/Ib

New Korean Artist LawsJust got told by :iconblackstorm: about this, and it is definitely something you guys should all know.
From this tumblr blog (http://toffmikin.tumblr.com/post/36136052920/new-korean-laws) comes this:
The Korean government has recently passed a law that says, in it's most basic form, "Anyone found as a creator, seller, or buyer of materials containing adolescent pornography will be punished as a sexual offender."
Okay, well, that makes sense to stop the production of such things, they're no good after all, right?
This wouldn't be such a problem if the rules weren't as ambiguous as hell.
More specifically, the law states the following counts
-Any appearances that could be seen as a teen/child
-Any type of pornography from explicit sex to being semi-nude (think mini skirts or swimming suits)
-Any media from illustrations, games, videos, films, etc.
Of course, it is purely up to the investigator to decide if the subject is an adolescent or not, or if the act is porn or not. Thi
To Capture Beauty XI There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.
I had to live in the desert before I could understand the full value of grass in a green ditch.
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
I have an affection for a great city. I feel safe in the neighborhood of man, and enjoy the sweet security of the streets.
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

How to Make a Good Profile PageHow to Make a Good Profile Page
Learn some helpful tips to ensure your profile page is appealing to the masses!
written by `miontre for Community Week in %projecteducate.
Quite simply, the way you present yourself is important. People make decisions about other people based on the way they present themselves. You know this is true because you do it yourself. There is no shame in this, because it's natural human behavior: we simply do not have the time to make decisions about each and every person we encounter from scratch, so we have to make some decisions based on how they present themselves. One such judgments made in this way is how worthwhile a person is - through this, we don't learn about a personality, but rather how long we are going to hold interest in this person.
If there's one thing which makes me uninterested in a person's profile, resulting in my immediate departure, it's when there's too much junk and mess on there - a result of careless presentation. :l

PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.
✐ 1. Communication and flexibility
This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio
To Capture Beauty IV
Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.
And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
