A mouth-watering fuck-ton of gun references.
Before you draw any gun, be absolutely certain you are familiar with the parts of a gun. That sounds cliché and dumb, but if you end up wondering “Why does this thing look so shitty?” it’s probably ‘cause you don’t know how a gun works. Know how it moves and what fits in where. And please know where the hands are placed when firing!!! If you hold a gun at the wrong place, you can lose a finger! Also know where the head will be positioned. The person will be looking down the barrel to line up the sights (the two protruding thingies at the top that help you pinpoint your target). Don’t know enough about guns, let alone what type to utilize? Here:
[And of course, disclaimer: I’m not racist or biased because of “kraut” and “kike”; I find slurs humourous, which is why I don’t get offended when people call me “faggot” or “jap.” So cool your tits please and try to see the funny side for once.]
And if you’re uber pro on guns, here’s an orgasmic list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_firearms
AND if you wanna get a little creative:
I’m always a fan of the minigun………

SAM SPRATT’s 2014 PORTRAIT GIVEAWAY
In short: Reblogs and Likes of this picture are each entries to have me paint a personalized portrait of you.
In slightly less short: Longtime followers are no stranger to these contests but for those new to this or me, I’m an illustrator (my work: www.samspratt.com ) who has worked with National Geographic, Janelle Monáe, Childish Gambino, FX, Game Informer, Angry Birds, Wall Street Journal, among others – creating album and magazine covers, advertisements, and posters – but a big part of me being able to do all that has been you sharing my work over the last 3 years. As my small way of paying that forward, I’d like to paint for one of you as I would for my clients, but ya know … for free. Maybe you want that regal portrait of you in a velvet smoking jacket to hang over your mantel, maybe one of your loved one, favorite character, or perhaps you just want me to paint you however I see fit (warning: this will 100% involve dinosaurs) – if you can think it, I’ll probably paint it – and I’ll work with you to make it something special.
As usual I’ll also be sending signed prints and haikus about your eyebrows to extra winners. The contest will stay open for about a week then I’ll randomly draw winners. You can enter on facebook and twitter for extra entries but be cool and don’t spam your followers.
For the last few weeks I have been working on and off of this 11x17 pencil drawing of Kenway from Assassins Creed 4. It’s been a therapeutic project between more serious work and video games!! can you guess what I’ve been playing?
3x3 Mini Paintings for practice, and because I can! Oils on Cardboard.
Diving right into some big painting having way too much fun…. WIP!
I finally have my Cintiq back up and running! yaaaaaay! Celebratory Harley!
More work on tangled piece. Acing the smoulder is harder than it looks…
But, do you recall the most famous reindeer of all?
Merry Xmas whovians!
I used this image because I’ve seen it posted without a source SO many times. (I’m looking at you Disney fandom)
Artwork - [x]
I’m gonna go ahead and signal boost the living fuck out of this.
http://saucenao.com/ is a good site to use as well. Another thing you can do is add sources to unsourced art you see on your dashboard so anyone who reblogs from you will spread the source around as well.
it’s even a lot easier to search for the image—just right click the image and hit “search Google for this image”
Something even easier than just that for sourcing is the Saucenao Tool. It’s an extension for both Chrome and Firefox and it allows you to right click any image and search it through either Saucenao (if it’s an Pixiv work), Google Image, IQDB or TinEye with just a simple click!
omarfarouq asked: Oh wait youtube!? no wait which episode? hahaha
Lol the latest one about rebooting old franchises!
Nut : fly you fool… *falls*
Yay! Feminist Anthropology time!
Alongside drawings of bison and horses, the first painters left clues to their identity on the stone walls of caves, blowing red-brown paint through rough tubes and stenciling outlines of their palms. New analysis of ancient handprints in France and Spain suggests that most of those early artists were women.
This is a surprise, since most archaeologists have assumed it was men who had been making the cave art. One interpretation is that early humans painted animals to influence the presence and fate of real animals that they’d find on their hunt, and it’s widely accepted that it was the men who found and killed dinner.
But a new study indicates that the majority of handprints found near cave art were made by women, based on their overall size and relative lengths of their fingers.
"The assumption that most people made was it had something to do with hunting magic," Penn State archaeologist Dean Snow, who has been scrutinizing hand prints for a decade, told NBC News. The new work challenges the theory that it was mostly men, who hunted, that made those first creative marks.
Another reason we thought it was men all along? Male archeologists from modern society where gender roles are rigid and well-defined — they found the art. "[M]ale archaeologists were doing the work," Snow said, and it’s possible that ”had something to do with it.”
I added the emphasis in bold, but the “that” was already italicized in the article, and it’s probably my favorite part. I love this article, although I’m not a huge fan of the fact that it’s considered so incredibly shocking and radical to imagine that women possibly participated in society 40,000 years ago.
In other awesome feminist anthropology news: it is now somewhat accepted that the venus sculptures, rather than being depictions of female beauty by male artists, were self-portraits by women looking down at their own bodies. The paleolithic figurines lose their distorted proportions and acquire representational realism if we understand that they are self-portraits created by women looking down at their own bodies.

When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. ‘This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar’ she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’
It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions? How often had I sped past them as I learned of male achievement and men’s place in the history books? Then I read Rosalind Miles’s book The Women’s History of the World (recently republished as Who Cooked the Last Supper?) and I knew I needed to look again. History is full of fabulous females who have been systematically ignored, forgotten or simply written out of the records. They’re not all saints, they’re not all geniuses, but they do deserve remembering.
the willendorf sculpture and others like her were /the first selfies/ and its amazing

I really, really love this sentence.
I have to reblog these articles and experiences because they are just so awesome and fascinating
So I hear that this zombie apocalypse thing, 5 years later has boiled over and it’s now relatively safe on home ground.
That’s right. Finally I can announce to the public that the reason D.E.R.P. has been on a hiatus has been because myself and my partner…
There’s a temporary Hiatus going on over at D.E.R.P. Click to read more and find links to places where you can follow me for future updates.
Anonymous asked: I understand trying to make comics female friendly, but aren't you guys worried that you're going to lose your core audience which is male? In the X-books you've had more focus on the likes on these females like jean and kitty while it should be Cyclops who has been the star of the X-Men comics for years. What warrants these characters more page time than him? Jean and kitty are secondary characters. You guys listen too much to women bitching. They cause so much freakin drama in comicdom.
Wow. you are the first person who I am kind of glad asked your question anonymously because I don’t want to know you.
as a reader of my work I want you to listen to me very carefully: you have major major issues. almost every line of your question reeks of complete misunderstanding of yourself as a man and of women in general.
it’s okay to find yourself more interested in something than others, of course it is, it’s okay to like Cyclops more than Jean Grey, but for you to draw the line at women characters not being interesting to you because you are a man or that you think I am being manipulated by some bitching women is really out there.
and as a reader of the X-Men whose entire philosophy is about tolerance and understanding… you are missing the point.
Some of you weekend warriors were not aware of what I was referencing about women in comics in a previous question so here is a re-blog…
