Frequently asked questions: (updated)What program(s) do you use for your artwork?
-- I use Paint Tool SAI for almost everything and I use Photoshop CS5 for some minor edits or sometimes to do some backgrounds.
Where can I get Paint Tool SAI? (and) Is it a free program?
-- You can get SAI here -- http://www.systemax.jp/en/sai/ -- SAI is not a free program, it costs about $60-$70 (around €40 or £35 give or take depending on currency exchange rates).
(DO NOT get it from here even though it will give the program to you for free -- painttool -sai.en.softonic.com/ or sai .detstwo.com/ as both of these download sites are notorious for viruses and downloading SAI from these sites will also install a virus.)
** There IS a free program out there that will give you a similar experience to SAI (not the same, but similar) called Firealpaca and it can be found here -- http://firealpaca.com (Site update as the other one wasn't worki
Cesar Millan? (personal opinion on the guy)What do you guys think of Cesar Millan or 'The Dog Whisperer'?
Been watching some videos and been having some debates about his methods of training (which to me, being someone how has and does train dogs, are not as bad as people think).
The controversy that he hits/punches dogs or even uses tooth collars and shock collars is just stupid to me as well. He never comes on the show saying 'we're going to use this shock collar to control your dog', if anything he tries to discourage the use of these things for control of bad behaviors, showing owners they can gain control and stop bad behavior easily, without painful tools.
The fact remains that if a dog is aggressive and ready to hurt another dog or a human NOTHING will stop it, not a shock collar, not a choke chain, not a spike/tooth collar, or even a gate/fence. So the 'tools' used mean nothing, it's about presence, making the dog realize you are not a threat but you are also not a pushover.
His methods do work when done properly and wi
Favourite artistsI could do a poll about this but I feel like when I did I just got people posting a whole bunch of icons and not much explanation
Who are your favourite artists? (Either here on dA or outside this site/the internet)
What do they do that inspired(s) you to watch them?
Post as many as you can but could you also explain as to why they are your favourite?
Do you feel they are a reason you continue to work harder at your chosen craft?
I'm not trying to be nosy really, just curious. It's easy to post a bunch of icons of people who may have done something you've liked but I'm looking for the artists who are your ultimate favourites.
The ones whose artwork/works inspire you, help you, give you feels, and excite you when their work shows up in your inbox.
Take all the time you need on this lol no rush to answer.
