[Edit3] Tracing: Unaccetable behaviourI was gonna post "how has life been" journal but an issue came up that needs to be addressed...
Sad topic is sad. But this has gone too far.
I tend not to write public-execution-type journals for both me and the person's sake, but unfortunately, I have to bring this issue to public due to various reasons which i'll be explaining them in a bit. But before I do, I ask people who are reading this to promise one thing: don't take this as a token to write nasty comments or try to confront this deviant - there is absolutely no point for any of you to go low, or spend time for useless effort. And if you're totally against with these type of journals, just don't read it alright... I don't need people trying to lecture me later what i've done is wrong/mean, it's none of my business, etc. I've done what I thought it needs to be done.
Well then, now that the warning is set, let's move on to the point what this person has done and my reasoning why I had to go public.
So it all started few days a

Want to learn anatomy?If anatomy's been one of those areas you've known you need to work on but it's just too much of a pain to work through all those tedious textbooks, I would recommend checking out this resource: http://www.memrise.com/course/87415/artistic-anatomy/
I haven't gone all the way through it so I can't vouch for it in its entirety, but it looks like a good, user-friendly way to take bite-sized chunks of learning anatomy! Now, knowing the bones and muscles isn't all that's required to draw great figures, but knowing what pieces exist and being able to name them helps you remember that they're there and you can be more specific when you draw and study.
If you enjoy this and want to dig in to anatomy and figure construction even deeper, I'd recommend checking out this book list: http://www.marshallart.com/reviews/anatomyHuman/
Desktop Nexus Alert UpdateOnce again the monster that is Desktop Nexus, and its plethora of incredibly stupid members raises its ugly head again
It annoys me no end that I seem to have to send out reminders like this every year or so about this site which needs killing slowly and painfully by the fire of a thousand suns.
Its members are now trying a new tack of apparently "crediting" and saying they have permission from all of YOU, yes, even you lurking in the back row there - you have apparently given them permission to redistribute YOUR work on desktop Nexus as wallpapers.
I might add, that if you have actually been idiotic enough to give somebody permission to redistribute your artwork in this manner, you and by granting and receiving permission - them - are still responsible for accurately providing the required credits as per your agreements with the original stock providers you used when creating your work. It is furthermore YOUR responsibility to make sure anybody
