    Then I will do it! Starting now!

    Here is your first assignment:

    Get a picture.
    Stare at that picture until it turns into blobs of color and shadow.
    Draw some colors and shadows on your paper in the same places and shapes as that picture.
    Use a #2 pencil and printer paper.

    So... I think I have the worst drawing skills in the world. My friends all made fun of me when I was told to draw an elephant at Macaroni Grill. My stick figures are misshapen. My girlfriend thinks my drawings are cute because it reminds her of her 3 year old brother's drawings.

    In high school I had an assignment where the teacher announced "Don't worry if you can't draw well, I won't count it against you." She pulled me aside after the assignment and told me she would not accept mine because the drawings were so bad. :(

    Can a guy like me ever become an artist?

    Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
    is a book squarely towards people like yourself. Not a lot of long-term depth, but the exercises do provide a decent bootcamp for a novice to start from, and from there to then move on to more in-depth concepts.

    I am thoroughly convinced that, providing the desire and commitment are there, anyone can be taught to draw. I can assure you that I have no real special gift or aptitude for drawing, if anything I have physical issues (shaky hands) that would be considered a hindrance to becoming good at art.

    So what does everyone think of this HDR nonsense?

    I'm can't make up my mind if it's meritorious, or just a cheap trick.

    E: Och, spelling.

    HDR can be meritorious, however it is often employed as a cheap trick. For my part it's a special circumstance tool to be used when a scene's contrast is otherwise irretrievable higher than the relative dynamic range of my sensor (film or digital), and even then it is only used sparingly.

    I go back to school Monday, but tomorrow and Saturday i'm taking my crew up to the comal river to drift down it a few times. That's about as white trash as it gets, but whatever, it's stupid fun.

    Whenever I get situated next week i'm taking my room mate and a few Toronto friends to whatever clown theme park they got up there.

    I suspected as much, one part of my brain thinks "Oh, cool" and another is thinking "Bleurgh!"

    haha, my first day of school this year consists of a job interview, followed by just over 7 hours of class solid, then I go to two hours of my martial art. weeeeee
    I hope I get the job though! I'd get to do PCR analysis and gel electrophoresis to genotype mice, which I would be maintaining colonies of. Considering I did those two processes about a jillion times last semester and have owned pet mice for several years, I think I'd be a good employee.

    Kuk sool Won, which is super fun! Basically because it's a mixture of everything- ground fighting, punches/kicks, acrobatics, joint stuff, and basically any weapon you can think of. Seriously, from things like staff/nun-chuck/sword to random things like... cane and rope dart haha. They even teach things like archery and mounted fighting down at this kuk sool ranch in Texas.

    Question:

    For those of you that know Loomdum in person, on a scale of 1 to 10 -10 being identical- how similar is he to Arnold Horshack from Welcome Back Kotter.

    Because I imagine about a 9 with blonde hair.

    He doesn't really look anything like him. Also I never saw Welcome Back Kotter so for personality I couldn't tell you. I will say that knowing Loomdun in person makes forum Loomdun much easier to understand. Same with KDW too. It's actually funny to me how little comes across on the forum as far as sense of humor and that sort of thing.

    Which works out well for me because I like being a complete jackass on here.

    Though, Bacon is pretty much the same.
