Haven't drawn in a while. I think this is the second face I've actually put some effort in to. The first portrait I attempted was a drawing I did in high school art class ten years ago.

Not super impressed with it, but I don't think it's absolutely horrendous.

I'm guessing we don't have a photography board, so this seems like the appropriate place to post. I've always preferred drawing and still spend most of my time doing that, but I also have a side passion for taking pictures. I went looking through my gallery and saw some I really like, so I thought I would share some and hopefully see some from you guys too.

I want one. Once saw a video where some big name film artist (video and photo) but I can't remember who he was, he was one of the greats though, or at least one of the early innovators. Anyway he said pretty much "Film is not meant to be shot through a zoom lense. If you want it to be bigger, you should get closer. This is true film.". I think it's an example of "You damn kids!". What about you?

It's true in some cases like with static subjects etc. but a telephoto gives so much flexibility. Plus the pictures look a lot different than for example with my 35mm even if I took a similar picture with it, a telephoto compresses the background through foreshortening, with a 35 mm the background will look so small that it doesn't make as much impact in the picture as it would when shot with a telephoto which makes the background seem much closer. Also, I'd like to see somebody get nature shots with a ~50mm lens of animals, that'd be some ninja shit.

I also like photographing people with it more because I like taking situational pictures, you can get much more authentic pictures of people because they're not aware that they're being photographed. With a smaller lens you gotta get right up to them and people instantly put on a "presentable" pose & demeanor. (Worth mentioning that I mean this in the context of shooting at weddings etc. though I've gotten a few cool shots of strangers too)

So yeah, there's a point to it, but it is pretty much "You damn kids with your newfangled modern gadgets!". Small focal lenghts have their uses but so does a telephoto. It all comes down to the subject and the kind of picture you want to compose.

Picture from a beatiful sight I ran into while in Estonia.

I can't draw for shit and I would really like to learn to do I can produce my weird visions and psychedelic thoughts.

I downloaded drawing with the right side of the brain.I got up to the part where you draw the picture upside down then my computer died.

Now I only have my phone so I want to actually go out and buy some books.

Any way on top of that even that book seemed a little advanced for me.I found drawbox but id still rather have a physical book.

Pic related it's my drawing from that book.(looks barely anything like me)

I would suggest just drawing whenever and whatever you can. People assume it's a skill you're born with. Maybe that's true I dunno but for most people it seems to just be a matter of practice, practice, practice. Actual classes and personal input will be much better than a book but if that's not possible just draw. Keep on drawing and don't let that shitty voice in your head say it's no good.

also, check out your local thrift shop for design books. I much prefer looking at line drawings for inspiration over technical 'how to draw' books or full-color paintings/photos. I have a few of these Dover publishing books, and they're all really great to get for ideas. at least for my style of drawing.

So, I want to get a Tattoo for years now, and I finally got a motive.

Everything you perciee changes the way you percieve things, and by percieving things you change the way the things are.

This is consistent with my worldview, schientific and philosophic.

Can anyone draw a better Version of that Tattoo? Or is it fucking stupid and I will hate it in a few years?

OP you should find a good tattoo artist and have them do this for you, not us. Go to a tattoo artist ask the what they want and they will draw up a sketch for you, if you like it, great, if you dont, great they can try again or you can find someone else.

You want to find a tattoo artist that refuses to do other peoples artwork and only does their stuff, the difference being they will care most about the end result because it is a reflection of their work as a whole.

that could be made into a cool tattoo. here's a big tip though - just because it's a good painting/drawing does not mean it will automatically make a good tattoo!
most people think you can take any image into a tattoo shop and they will magically be able to make it work, failing to take into account the differences between the human skin as a medium as compared to paper/digital.
many tattoos will look cool at first but if not put on by a capable tattooer, it WILL look like shit in a few short years.
do yourself a favor, do some research, find the most legit tattoo shop you can, and speak to the artist there. most respectable tattooers will give you advice about what will make a solid tattoo that lasts and still looks good in 10 years, as long as you are open to learning and don't try to tell them how to do their job.
many tattooers are stoked to do custom pieces for people, but make sure you let them do their thing - if the artist isn't stoked about the artwork they're putting on you, you will both most likely be unsatisfied with the end result.

ive seen this countless times in tattoo shops - people come in with a very particular idea, shove their phone in the artist's face and ask them to "do this please". when the artist explains to them why the design would need to be changed a bit to make a solid tattoo, most people don't seem to listen and just say "yeah but i want it THIS way"
sorry for the rambling post, but seriously there are so many tattoo shops who don't give a fuck and will happily give you a shitty tattoo for your money, but if you take the time to talk this over with an artist who cares, you will walk away with a rad piece based on your vision.

So I made some Scotch eggs about a week ago. They all came out fine and perfect, except for the very first one that I tested. The egg was totally cooked, all the cheese was melted, and the majority of the sausage was cooked brown. But there was, I guess, I decent sized red spot. I decided it was fine. I just put it in the microwave for a bit, and then ate it.

There were five more eggs after that. Four of my friends ate one each, and all of them are fine. I ate the last one, which was perfectly brown.

But anyways, I've been shitting my brains out for like three days. When will this end? Before the shitting I spent a whole day just laying on the floor in pain. I feel a lot better but, you know, still shitting out all of my liquids. I've been drinking Gatorade, I guess it helps.

I'll post a picture of the good egg from my phone.

Modern pork is very unlikely to have trichinosis, the main culprit in causing us and our ancestors to be warey of pork. Pork is now so safe because of the updated technology and medical knowledge. I've even read reports that it's perfectly safe to eat pork medium rare now. I personally cook it through because that's just the taste i prefer in my pork.
