Understanding cronus is something that requires the mind to journey to very strange places indeed...

I think they're great. A few of them use watercolor washes.

I like art. But don't do favorites. That'd be absurd. And also since I tinker with photoshop etc...and do tend to be me, not someone else. Not the best, yet, certainly a favorite....my ideas are absurd, prefer that over photorealism....or a combination. :dunno:

I don't need to think outside the box. Unlike those who really feel safest thinking inside one.

This thread is an excuse to post art stuff.

I'm not a fan of photorealism either, and I can't use photoshop anymore. About ten years ago I had spent almost the same amount of time with it. Now I just open GIMP and throw something together and don't think about it --it's for shits 'n giggles.

I draw using a pencil and paper.

I had a option on a very cheap Cintiq a couple of weeks ago, still very expensive, then realised I could use a Rotring pen to produce some of my own visionary ideas and scan them into the machine with a cheap, really cheap, scanner. Which is what I intend doing if times permit and Donald doesn't blow up the global economy....

Everything art is for fun though, no money in it for the artist these days unless you are really talented in the 'this is new' field and get spotted...which ain't likely. It's easy to think everything is about the dollar bill in art. That's not half of it even.

I've got a little Wacom, but I've never really liked it. You can have it, but it's tiny and you'll need to replace the cord, and of course accept whatever else I send with it. :biggrin:

Got a intuos3 full size. That and a airbrush pen....enough for me. Not sure I'd buy Wacom again though with so many cheaper alternatives about now that are as good or better.

So what? Are you of the Trump brigade that takes the view that your opinion is valid just because irs yours? Fuck off if that’s the case.
