[WARNING!!! READING AHEAD!!!]

Our imagination is what helps us separate reality from fiction


The last couple of years have seen a massive jump in computer technology, ranging from CPUs to how much the PC uses energy and one of the greater things the majority of humans always gets excited about is the increase in graphics.

We have jumped from characters made out of pixels to characters made out of high-res polygons so high, my somewhat beefed up laptop couldn't handle it. But just because it has higher graphics doesn't make everything better, no I am not talking game-wise (although that is a topic in itself), I am talking about the affects of prolonged exposure to ultra high quality graphics, let me give an example, VR is slowly becoming a thing in our daily life (I think it already has become) and its most prominent use is in horror games where people using VR would need to change their pants due to how frightening the game is but 20 years ago, developers had to make due with whatever their hardware was capable of and still managed to scare people in that time, the difference between the two timelines is how close to realistic games have become.

When using VR and the games graphics are close to realistic, the user themselves will slowly lose touch of reality and think the game world is real and this is what terrifies me the most, graphics becoming so real, you can't tell the difference, you lose grip of reality granted some people play games with graphics so realistic, you can see the character's sweat pores but some don't, there are a category of people who can easily lose grip of reality.

I do support progression in technology and such but I think we have reached a point in graphics production and we should stop, or else at some point, a teenager can download an ultra hi-res model of whatever famous idol and use it in blender 31.50F

[WARNING!!!! READING AHEAD!!! ]

We live in strange times indeed
It’s strange…. A nerd can befriend another nerd in real life, a nerd can date another nerd in real life, a nerd can marry another nerd in real life.

I am saying this because as I was growing up, being a nerd (nerd in a general term, like reading comics, Manga, playing card games and such) was a closet thing, not something that you share in a normal conversation or else people would think you’re weird and become subjected to bullying, it was rare in those times to find people of similar interests, I am glad I grew up in a geek/otaku/nerd family because I rarely found people in my school who were nerds but now in these current times, kids are wearing their favorite super heroes shirts in schools and make lots of friends that way.

These current times is a blessing to geeks such as us, we can openly discuss our favorite comics/manga and such without the fear of getting bullied or labeled as “weirdos” (I bet even bullies now wear batman/superman shirt)

[WARNING!! READING AHEAD!!!]

Booooooooooo….did I scare you?

I scared myself

People seem to get the idea that creativity is something you are born with, not developed. But throughout the years of me learning how to draw and write stories, I realized that creativity comes later on, not immediately, because you can’t expect to create a master piece on your first year, second year not even after 7 years!!! It is your God damn well and determination that causes your brain to jump start the creative process, because no sane human would continue to draw circles, play the guitar until their fingers bleed or even sing until they can no longer speak!! Creativity is a privilege that we gain after when we scream to our brain after years and years that we are determined and we’re not gonna stop.

 

We’re not born creative, we’re earn it

based on this, I confer that I don't understand a lot of the conecpts required

[WARNING READING AHEAD!!!]

September wasn’t one of my best months

Online, People make silly remarks about procrastination and such, I find it a serous deal because while artists are able to churn out a comic or a Manga chapter in one month, I on the other hand takes me a month just to finish one page not because I don’t know how to draw or anything, I am just lazy that I delay finishing the page to the next day and before I know it, a month has passed and all I get in the end is a half-assed page that goes into the trash can, this majorly hurts me a lot because I spent a month making the god damn page and in the end I toss it into the trash can.

How the hell do these mainstream artists produce an entire comic issue or Manga chapter in a month while I can’t even produce a proper page in a month?

I Had an x-ray done today and they found you in my heart. The doctor said that if they took you out, I would die, because i couldn't live with out such a good friend. Give this heart to everyone you don't want to lose including me if you care. Try to collect twelve, it is not easy. Be honest and send this to anyone who made you smile this year.
