I personally think they are shit and aren't even caricatures. Like someone already mentioned, a caricature is supposed to have some of your most distinct features drawn in an exaggerated fashion ala
Those look like cheap, amateur drawings.
This is the lamest attempt at a scam I have ever seen. This "tablet" he has "built" is running android 4.2 (5.0 comes out in the next week or so). The specs on this tablet could barely run a SNES emulator. It DOESN'T even have the specs he says it does, and the specs he says that it has are STILL old news. You can buy the tablets for $115! He wants 300! Hahahhaha. Man if Ubisoft sees this they are going to have a crudely drawn space cow man.

Though if it isn't a scam, it's a great joke.
Just in case you want to listen to some of her "hits" to make your ears bleed a little more. And her quote: "Here is a throwback- some music I recorded a few years ago before I became GEM. I will also be posting music from "Shattered Mirror"- my demo that is getting me where I'm going now. Working on brand new material and making deals and about to explode. No more info. Just that. U will just have to wait and see." Demo Reel
Wow, I read the whole thing, Just ridiculous. I was pissed off when people stole a couple design elements from me, can't imagine how you're feeling.
On a lighter note, those sketches are lovely, I especially enjoyed the portraits.
~~EDIT: I looked up benchmarks for the hardware they sent you. The card is absolute shit and the CPU is less powerful than an i7-2600.~~
spending bloat is real. It happens all over the place, not just at universities.
I work in Special Needs Education. After a tangent of research, I started looking at Speech devices after seeing a lady taught a dog using them. A single red button for teaching a word can cost $150 or more, and yes schools and businesses WILL pay for them (especially if you have a budget that requires you use specific vendors.
So...I hopped on Amazon......Here is a set of 4 programmable ones for $15
I've done this for other Special Needs products. I've looked through the catalogs, everything is absurdly priced. A set of cheap-ass (and I mean like the shittiest quality you can get) hula-hoops is like well over $300 if I remember correctly....I'm involved in the flow community. I built them much higher quality hula-hoops, that actually work because of weight mechanics, and it cost me under $40 to build them. The kids and staff love them.
1: I wanna give thanks to you guys here at /r/delusionalartists.
this wasn't the feedback I expected.
2: I see that a few of you lovely reddit folk liked the metrocard business card concept. here's a quick video of how I make them.
pardon me, reddit. its been a while.
*edit: forgot how to reddit.
He means ... Wait a minute I don't know why I'm even here, let alone why I'm commenting.
Anyway. He means Battletoads was an obvious choice and you didn't use it.
Yes, and we all were orphans from the time we were newborns.
And the strangest party is that neither my father nor I have actually met our fathers until ending up in the world of caricaturism for several years, having naturally found our own way there. I know all this thanks to twenty three and me.
Todd Rundgren and John Lennon had a public feud, after Todd told a reporter that his song ''Rock and Roll Pussy'' was about Lennon, lol.
''In this song, Rundgren takes on musicians who sing about changing the world but then do nothing about it. The line, "get up and see the revolution on the TV" seemed to be directed at John Lennon and his song "Revolution." This led to a war of words between Lennon and Rundgren that played out in the press. In September 1973, Rundgren did an interview with the British music magazine Melody Maker where he said, "John Lennon ain't no revolutionary. He's a f--- idiot, man. Shouting about revolution and acting like an ass. It just makes people feel uncomfortable. All he really wants to do is get attention for himself, and if revolution gets him that attention, he'll get attention through revolution.
The rivalry between Lennon and Rundgren took a strange and tragic turn when it was revealed that Lennon's killer, Mark David Chapman, was similarly obsessed with Rundgren and tried to find him a few days before Lennon's murder. Chapman left a copy of Rundgren's second album in the hotel where he checked out the day he killed Lennon, and when he was caught, Chapman was wearing a promotional T-shirt for Rundgren's Hermit Of Mink Hollow album . In an interview after his incarceration, Chapman said Rundgren's music was the "soundtrack to my life."
The MSM does not want you to know anything about Todd Rundgren, even though ''bang on the drum'' is one of the most well played songs in history.
Show of hands for anyone knowing anything about Lennon's killer bedecking himself and his hotel room with Todd ephemera? cricket cricket
''Rock and Roll Pussy''
This photograph is a statement on male sexual disillusionment, as seen from the point of view of a generation of adolescent teens growing up with twenty four hour access to hard core pornography. The constant barrage of male appendage enlargement advertising coupled with childish peer vexation targeted toward such a demographic , leads ineradicably to the conclusion that his penis is the matchstick in this picture , unable to satisfy the more experienced worldly female pudenda. Especially so if his predilection is towards porn that is of a more desegregated nature.
tldr : throw the hotdog down the hallway.
Holy shit 275 dollars? Even a real prayer plant isn't that expensive!
Also that's a really sad looking plant. Especially for that price. If you want an actual nice paper plant, why not just do it yourself? It's a bit of effort yes, but it's fun, way cheaper, and honestly looks better too. And you'll have money left over for an actual prayer plant too
Corrie Beth Hogg (a designer) has written a book about making these you can buy/borrow and also has a blog with links to instructions too. I did some ages ago at a craft get-together and they're quite detailed and easy to follow.
I stumbled upon this subreddit tonight, and in turn, this thread. After watching some of the videos here, I found this comment about Solo giving away her records with promotions, and that's when it hit me.
When I was a kid in the early 80's, I remember seeing an ad on a package of solo cups about getting free "hit 45 RPMs" by sending in a few proof-of-purchase labels from their products. They really didn't specify what kind of music you would receive, so I took the bait, thinking that maybe I'd be getting some free rock and roll.
Instead, I got this.
Not my kind of music at all of course, but even with that I could sense that it felt sort of "forced." I figured it must have been some sort of "loss leader" thing. I don't remember what I ever did with it. I generally hung on to albums and singles I obtained since I was a kid, so I probably destroyed it. For some strange reason, I now kind of wish I hadn't. Sort of like the Akeem the Dream rap record that I got with the purchase of a pair of Etonic shoes that I threw against the wall like a frisbee and shattered to pieces.
Anyway, thanks for the memory, I think...
Well well, on IMDb the film is listed as "completed" (updated on Jan 22, a month before the funding period started). Running time is 70 minutes, with a budget of $870,000. Release date of September 26th? Something tells me all of this was pulled out of someone's ass. Funding was just cancelled too, a month before the kickstarter was supposed to expire.
Most definitely. I loved the "It'd take a Miracle" Effect schtick. After it inevitably gets overused the bartender gets to mess with the players by making the schtick cause all sorts of chaos.
I just read that a project for a 2nd edition was put on Kickstarter, and is coming out in April
I was actually curious to see what took more time, take a photo of a tree or draw one. It's a rough drawing of course; I'm not an illustrator by any means.
Hand Drawn Tree Breakdown of time: 5 minutes to draw tree, 1 minute to draw ocean/sky, 5 minutes to upload to the Interwebs
That being said, here's a photo of a tree I took in Sarasota because I noticed that Google Earth didn't have a lot of photos from the area. I'm using this photo in particular because I think it's ugly; it's about as dumb as the hand drawn tree I made. Yet it has almost 1,000 views on Google Maps because of the locations.
Photo of tree Breakdown of time: 10 minutes to setup camera and tripod, <1 minute to take photo of tree, 10 minutes to process RAW to PNG, 5 minutes to upload to Google Views.
I realize this post contradicts my earlier thread... but I wanted to do this scientifically. Thoughts?
That probably wasn't done on purpose.
The Toronto Star's website had a different design when this article was first published.
Here is the article as it originally appeared. Note that there is no subheading.
Old websites that have changed their layout have this kind of shit happen all the time. Look at old articles on any news site.
IF this is real gold leaf, it probably costs $2.50 or less per piece to apply.
Pennies, if it's imitation gold leaf for crafts.
And or buy an espuma gun/cream whipper.
Hi! I’m a 15 year old artist, trying to save up some money for art school. I’m not that great at art yet, but I was hoping if anyone would be willing to buy my art. Here’s a few examples:
The first is a finished piece with shitty art supplies (crayons markers etc.), and the second is just doodles of a character. I’m starting out on digital since it’s probably my best bet of actually getting money.
I want to know if is good enough. I hope I’m not delusional. :( Thanks!
I disagree. The plaster may be a bit fancier than regular plaster of Paris, and they may have included some pigment or dye to colour it, but the technique to do this is so easy they sell it in craft shops for $30 to do it yourself. I have, and as a bonus, i got a cast of my own kids hand, not some random kid.
I tried to find more information on it myself. I didn't find any good pictures either but this site (It looks like someone created a website solely to take scattered notes so who knows) mentions beeswax, but nothing on flesh. Was it actual patches of skin coated in wax or what? Some pictures I found did look awfully shiny...
If you want to research paint pigments, I would strongly suggest The Artist's Handbook of Materials and Techniques And if you want to check out the pigment codes on your paint (which they should have if they aren’t hot ass garbage) look at art pigment database . Note: it doesn’t matter which kind you have, the same pigments are used across mediums, the only thing that makes them different is their binder. This will get you started.
You’ll have to do your own poking for glass, ceramics, and industrial paint, dyes, etc. as that is a bit beyond my wheelhouse. I only know enough to make an educated guess on that business
I went to the skateboard manufacturer's website, and a complete board (deck, trucks, wheels, bearings) is $45 USD on [Krown Pro Skateboard Complete https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008C1GE68/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_apa_i_IcCKEbN6SQ9CR](Amazon). With seven boards, that's $315. When you factor in the material cost for the metal frame and labor I think it's a fair amount. I think it's quite cool to be honest.
Reminds me of the book written by Lark Vorhees, the actress that played Lisa Turtle on Saved By The Bell. Every word she didn't copy and paste from the Bible has a comma between it, she makes up words in most sentences, it's complete nonsense, she misspells her own name on one of the pages (just one), and every chapter is called "The Light".
I bought it. I was crying laughing.
Initially I was going to argue that if she created the account herself as a sock puppet, she's really dedicated to the cause, because that same account has 28 reviews going back over four years.
However, that same person reviews another one of her books, and a few things stood out to me, most notably some very similar quirks in the way the reviewer and author both use commas.
So I going to say the review might be legit, but not anymore. Pretty sure it's a sock puppet.
Oh look, he's written a book--
