Berlinde De Bruyckere.:Suffering and Protection
Flemish sculptor creates sculptures and drawings of suffering human bodies that resemble nothing so much as reality. It mixes in his sculptures on religious grounds and media images and writes the Christian motif of the human suffering in the contemporary era. The confrontation with the body that engages the artist led to questions about the ethics of our society and are the place to fundamental questions about the nature of the human being.
These disturbing and uncannily lifelike sculptures by Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere are incredibly visceral and eerie. The repulsion instinctively triggered in the viewer comes from their verisimilitude, and the sense of reality of this nameless, grotesque, distorted, half-human, seemingly fluid flesh; combined with their beauty, the delicate, subtle mottling of colors, the pure realistic visceral fleshiness of the works, and their technical grace.

Neat.

I play it for like two weeks then don’t play it again for almost a year. All the running wears out my wrists. And it’s not like it’s a particularly varied game. Once you played a few hours you’ve kind of played everything.

Hey Plague I'm working on a drawing of some sort and it looks good when I'm up close and zoomed in, but once I zoom out and see the whole picture for itself, it doesn't look as good. Do you know why that is? Is there a way to fix it? (sorry if this question is kind vague I don't know how to explain it well har har)
tabberhatterAsked by tabberhatter

Assuming it is what I think it is, work zoomed out on your primary, try to go back over it with a second primary at about the same range. It’s a problem of getting the core design down first before you begin obsessing over detailing. If it doesn’t look right as a sketch there’s no reason to continue.

Hey I just love your commentary on your videos and was wondering what you'd talk about if you were drawing an attractive male as your videos are all attractive females and the commentary is based on that. So you drawin' any dudes in the future?
breadboyfoxAsked by breadboyfox

That’s actually something I’ve been thinking about for quite a while. “I draw a lot of lady butts. I wonder if my three female viewers would like manbutt? Or… or some of the guys…?”

Drawing both kinds of (general) body types are fun in different ways. Fewer curves, more angles. Not sure what context I’ll include guys in, but that is a thing. There’s a couple of animations where it’d be part of a joke… could also do another fusion series, although those are incredibly time consuming… One day, though!

"Shuirika" is the final culmination of a series of threads /co/ had in which they described their various sexual fetishes design sensibilities to me, and I assembled the result. The bulk of the explanation of that can be found in:

A video of the drawing process (with dumb commentary).

Also: 1920x1080 in case Tumblr won’t do that. (It won’t). Because why not?

And here’s a post of all the prior images, explaining what the fuck this is.

For those not viewing the video, her name is basically my way of making a joke about her butt being the size of a watermelon. Yes, sometimes it’s a fruit, sometime’s it’s a vegetable. I don’t know. I’m not a science. I don’t do the big words. I make the big butt.

Eli, why don't you make a Patreon account? Is it too much of a hassle for you, or do you just not like the idea of asking people (who want to give you their money) for money?
dedric-riceAsked by dedric-rice

Well, one or more of those things. But all the same, I’m currently making a Patreon release cartoon. So I’ll probably have one in a month or two. I’m trying to make it entertaining, so even if people don’t care or would rather watch me die slowly and horribly, hey, a funny cartoon!

Yeah the new website is cool, but why are we failing to mention the new Face/off shirt?

Best Friends Face Off PRE-ORDER TILL AUG 6

Yeah what handsome guy drew that?

More Prequel Adventures in /co/ threads. Wasn’t asked this time. But you’ll take it and you’ll LIKE it. I just decided to start drawing because I went to the dentist and really did not feel like working today after being told to cut down on stress grinding. But like you care. Enjoy your smut. Monster.

Then she dies horribly under tons of firey metal. But then… then Shinji… finds the body. “You should always keep your promises, Misato.” *engages his latex suit* “Always.”

Gets pokemon types and weaknesses wrong: god you guys know nothing about pokemon jesus christ

Uses a guide sent to them by a fan: Stop using a guide you cheap fucks

Constantly heals in a playthrough with perma-death: You’re not taking any risks so this is super boring

Polls for an additional rule: *picks no running from fights* Why are your pokemon so over-levelled

Decides to end the playthrough with a livestream: Urgh it’s going to take another 4 hours of this RPG it’s not ending RIGHT NOW

True. People seriously need to chill.

It’s not like Pokemon is a difficult game. It’s actually harder to try to lose than it is to win. Nuzlockes try to remove all the hand holding and turn what is essentially a game made for babies into a rather ordinary challenge, but when your combat boils down to “pick a water monster if it’s a fire monster, if you feel like it” and just grinding beyond enemy levels, after the first few hours even a Nuzlocke will be next to impossible to lose. You basically have to consciously throw matches away to make it interesting.

Hey Plague, asking for some writing advice. You said how much you hate dragons because they're so overused and unoriginal. However do you believe there's merit to be had in taking well established mythical beasts/settings as a starting point, and then rewriting many aspects of the race, their culture, etc in order to subvert expectations? For example -- a story about Hell where demons have advanced to levels of modern tech and humans aren't aware of this, simply because the bible is really old.
retromenaceAsked by retromenace

No, because everyone does that too. Here, look. Let’s raise up Strawman McStrawmanson for a moment and have a talk with him:

Okay Strawman, stop trying to reuse the same old bullshit everyone keeps reimagining and come up with something new. I don’t care that Orks in X’s universe are actually hyper intelligent robots, or that Elves in Y’s universe are vampires from space or Z’s universe has dragons that are all spirit forms that form a giant ghost tree or whatever. Show me something new, not a reskin of an original idea someone had a thousand years ago. The fact that you’re facing the need to alter their origins or background demonstrates just how tired they really are. It’s like Hollywood movies. Stop reskinning old concepts and doing remakes. It’s hard. I know. And there’s no such thing as 100% originality. But try, Strawman. Try.

"B-b-but literary reinterpretation is the core of - " NO. STOP. Stop, Strawman. You sicken me. Your face is so stupid, and just like, way out past your head right now. In my face. MY face. You’re attacking me right now, with your creative indolence. And your face. It’s just begging to be punched; I can’t explain it.

At least the very first guy that ever came up with the idea of a dragon, twenty thousand years ago, had the miniscule amount of imagination in his tiny walnut brain to see a lizard in the dirt and imagine bat wings on it. Ooo! Amazing! What a fucking genius that guy was, Strawman. Then these tired old fucks have a whole god damned Aerie of the fucking things in DS2, with so many they cloud the sky. I GET IT. Thank you. I’ve seen them. We’ve all seen them. Shut up about the worthless fucking garbage sky lizards. Shove them up your ass. Which no doubt is quivering in anticipation of more dragons, since it’s been shitting them out all day. Can’t let the reservoir run dry, after all. A deep cavern, a vacant well of ass juice and gold where the ancient creatures can curl themselves to sleep in the knowledge that they will always have a home, because you can’t wipe them free of your snaking colon.

Oh, what’s that? Yes, yes. Greed metaphor. Fuck off. No one even does that anymore. They’re just video game bosses now. Dragons and big red demon men. Next idea please, you fucking twats. Your lives revolve around imagination! Strawmen. Are you not ashamed of yourselves, Strawmen? Strawmen. Listen. Kill yourselves. Please. Look at the cover of your latest novel, Dragon Quest 5: The Dragonlinging, one last time. Observe the image of your self-insert: a shirtless dark elf raising his glowing enchanted mastercrafted dwarven longsword to yet another red, scaled draconic god, the hint of an erection protruding from his tight, green leather chaps. Both of them. They both have chaps. And erections. Now raise a gun to your empty skull. And put a bullet in it. Please. Maybe the viscera from your shattered cranium will paint a better picture on the walls than you ever painted in your prose. You animals.

Nice question, retro! Although, maybe I’m not the best person to direct this question to…

Dost thou livestream plague?

HA. Not with a 0.07 MBPS connection with 5,000ms latency I don’t. One of my eventual patreon stretch goals would be actual internet.
