Story
Introduction
I majored in art, minored in music, and then taught myself to program (starting with BASIC in the 70's, but really got serious around 1983 when I bought my Commodore 64). Now I'm a computer programmer.

"Taught myself" means studying and practicing. I love to read, and this (technical) stuff (usually) seems easy for me.

More recently I've discovered Propellerhead Reason (music software that is a recording studio on your desktop).

I've also started studying electronics. I got an Arduino, sensors, etc., and I'm having too much fun! :)

I go by aBoogieman because I like to play boogie woogie music (among other genres). I also see some humor in that name.
Bragging rights
Worked 15 years at my current job, for a total of 20+ years as a professional computer programmer so far. I still love my job.

Fantastic! (Even though I've no idea who this "Akira" is.)

One question, though: Do you think I should subscribe?

Great job to everyone involved. Amazing song & video! :-)

For the vase and pencil experiment you can actually use a feather instead of a pencil! Try it!

This is fun to watch and you got a good result. :)

I find it interesting that you use one groundplane for everything, but each building has a different number of stories (floors). It's an interesting way to contribute to the perspective.

BTW, I like the "triangle building" (near the right), if that's what that supposed to be.

Wow! You have just given your competition some very practical tips on how to do better– possibly at your own cost!

I think that means you are a true gentleman.

They are some very practical tips, too!

It also occurs to me that these tips could be useful for most professions, not just illustrators.

Thank you!

This is a cool thing to do! It takes courage to show everything.

People that think they're doing bad can look at this and think, "Well, if my good days are as much better as Sycra's, I have a lot of hope!" I know it happens to everyone.

Eventually your bad days are better than a Rembrandt. Well... OK... maybe I'm a little too positive. :D Haha!

Thanks for posting this!

Tired of spending half the night flipping through dozens of tomes, just to find the right potion? Well let me help you with that!

Entirely written and illustrated by my brother, +Noel Green, this comprehensive volume encapsulates the state-of-the-art in potions! Anything you could every need is found in the work that took him three years to complete!

Check it out!
A completed replica of "Advanced Potion Making" from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Every one of the pages and chapters match any and everything seen or referenced in the films and books.

Wow! SpaceX is now printing their main rocket engines (laser sintering). Before you know it will be printing the entire vehicle!

Check out this video if you've not seen it. They describe a lot of fantastic features. It's really just incredible!

Glad somebody else realised how incredibly mind blowing the announcement was.

Very nice work.

When you started it I wasn't sure where you were going, although I thought it might be sort of where you wound up. Ha!

And this is a real "Speed painting" isn't it? ;-)

Just a couple more thoughts. Sometimes I tend to be sarcastic. In my previous post I was a little. I think that most of these drawings are really, really good. In my opinion you have more good ones than bad ones.

Also if your other friends don't have bad days, then every day is a good day in their eyes, so there is no need for them to improve! I hope I never get to that point! In fact, I often think about what my favorite art teacher told me. He said that he hoped to be at his best on the day that he died. In other words he strives to be better each day than the day before. I think this is a great philosophy!

You have to allow yourself to make mistakes. If you don't then I don't think you're an honest person. And really, if you're not honest with yourself, you are cheating yourself more than anyone else ever could.

Well I didn't mean to get into philosophy so much, but I sort of did. Now you see why I often get sarcastic. : –) Ha ha!

Pretty cool time-lapse.

A parts list would be great(er). Including a link to the pen! :)
