Freelance artist.
Summer classes are done, and my masters program official starts next Tuesday. I have to admit, I sort of got used to the "extended" vacation, as boring as it was. :P I'll be studying Biomedical Visualization, which is some medical related illustration and animation thing. I'd thought it be useful as an extension for my BioEngineering degree, but less into the engineering and more into the artsy stuff, which seems to be more of my strong suit than raw engineering (because I can't math to save my life). I'm just hoping this isn't just a useless art degree with more window dressing. It is a Master of Science degree, so I hope that means it's worth something. Because an art degree certainly wouldn't.

There will be a lot of mandatory figure drawing, so I'm sure that would help immensely with my mediocre anatomy, even if I have to cut open a bunch of dead bodies and draw their formaldehyde-soaked innards. :( Seems to be a 9:1 female-to-male ratio for this program, so I wouldn't be surprised if I will be the only guy there.

If you find out the creator of a product you use and like is a total sociopath, does it change your view on the product? Do you continue to use his/her product? 

42 deviants said Maybe: It depends on how severe I dislike the person, and how important the product is and if there is an alternative at all. I can't decide on the fly.
21 deviants said Never: I don't lump my evaluation together and won't stop using something that is good just because the person that made it is an asshole, if the product is still sound.
14 deviants said Yes/No: IT will definitely change favorably I view the product, but I might not stop using it just because I don't like the guy.
10 deviants said No/Yes: I don't think the personal flaws of the creator should skew the value of a product. A good product is good regardless of who made it. That said, I will stop using it to end my support for the person.
8 deviants said Absolutely: Knowing that will definitely scew my views negatively towards the product. I would also stop supporting him/her and stop buying it.

Hi, Eriance! I hope you remember your old pal, Glitcher. I was just clearing out my inbox when I came across an message I sent you way back in 2004. I was curious to know if you still update regularly and I'm glad to see your artwork is still going strong. You were one of my favourite Mega Man artists back on Iragination and it's a joy to see how you've evolved after all these years. Your still life and manga artwork is particularly impressive. Keep up the good work! Drop me a note if you ever want to catch up. :)

I've seen your work of ClayMore. You know, for shadows in manga ClayMore are used touches, else you page isn't similar. I can show you, how to make such shadows, because recently painted myself (watch my last work with T-34-85)! Wirte to, for example,

But I am russian - and
poorly know english...

I'm not trying to replicate the claymore manga style. Im just making a doujin with my non-canon characters. I haven't added the screentones, yet, either.
