The last of the practice overpaintings. This series was a good learning experience though it could've been better. I remember color picking a lot because I wasn't confident of my colors, which is a shame because I would've learned more if I had struggled to get the colors right. On the bright side I know get to upload newer things (with more mistakes made 100% by me!). GuephrenArt #Guephren #DigitalPainting #Painting #Art #Zelda
@rice it's not a thing of absolutes, it's absolutely easier to shoot yourself in the foot with c++ than with python. of course, you can write c++ in any language.

I was wrong about Google and Facebook: there鈥檚 nothing wrong with them (so say we all)

It鈥檚 always difficult admitting you鈥檙e wrong. But sometimes you have to in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. So, today, I admit that I was wrong about Google, Facebook, & surveillance capitalism in general being toxic for our human rights and democracy 鈥 it simply cannot be true given how they are endorsed by some of the most well-respected organisations in the world.

@_emacsomancer @jalcine Actually you would need to keep the car at full throttle...

@paulfree14 I think in this thread there is a bit of confusion.

Telegram client is FLOSS, there is even a fork available on f-droid (with some months of lag for new versions).

Telegram server is proprietary, but that alone means little.

Telegram network service is not a software therefore it's neither open source nor proprietary. I might be concerned about how my data is used by the service, but that's independent from the server's software.

just because white people couldn't do it doesn't mean it was aliens

On Earth, standing at sea level, the horizon is about 4.7 km away. Sometimes I like to sit and stare at it awhile. It鈥檚 a nice little reminder of just how small this watery little planet is.

I always find the coast very soothing. The sound of the waves fills my mind with thoughts...

After posting that "Miyazaki didn't say anime was a mistake", I figured it'd be fun to post things he actually DID say which were equally harsh:

- Disney movies have black and white storytelling that creates adults with a dangerously simplistic sense of morality

- 3D animation is a disease that robs artists of creativity

- Telling famous Japanese movie directors their WWII movies are dumb & abusing history for propaganda reasons
