Online Art Supply Sites?

Anyone got an art supply site they use? I'm getting rather tired of going to my local store and either not finding what I'm looking for, or feeling like I'm taking it throught the nose.

I just want to take a second and apologize/clarify. I misread the original post. I thought he was asking about how photo referencing OR tracing are generally viewed. Me Culpa. Either I'm a moron or my glasses were smudged...most likely the former. Anyway. Tracing is still bad in my book, because it ...

And see, I have to disagree with you there. Steve Vai and Frank Zappa took a lot from Jazz theory, but I wouldn't call Vai's stuff Jazz. I certainly wouldn't call Christian Agulara's new album Jazz. Instrumentation creates the sound. You cant take a heavy metal group and have them play Jazz. Dethklo...

You know, I'm disapointed.

It's been TWO WHOLE PAGES and nobody has even bothered to show a flying cleavage monkey.

My word, the ratio of guys to girls is HORRIBLE. Guess I'll need to do something about that.

Jazz as I've always learned it, is jazz because of the skeleton of the standards, that is common in all jazz music. Now brass bands were some of the early five piece jazz bands, such as the afore mentioned Jelly Roll Morton. But a jazz band can be a small as a guitar and drums. and many jazz bands ...

Dont trace, tracing won't teach you anything. But what you can do is take that picture and BREAK IT DOWN. Define basic head shapes, define eye placement, define mouth shapes and hand positions. I'll show what I mean when I get home and can scan in some examples. Its so simple you'll bonk yourself on...

Brian Setzer is sometimes classified under Rockabily. oh yes, what brian setzer does is definitely rockabilly. I'd consider BSO Jump Blues. It's still heavily based around big band orchestrations, but it's heavily centered around his guitar. Rockabilly is Reverend Horton Heat. It's a rock ensemble ...

but what about Jump Blues and Rockabilly? Hey man, Reverend Horton Heat and the Royal Crowns aren't anything to turn your nose up at. While (if I remember correctly) Blues and Jazz emerged around the same time but evolved fairly independantly from each other, with the bulk of blues originating from...

Hmm, I've never actually heard the original version of My Spanish Heart. I've only heard the Blue Devils '94 version. Oh yeah, Billy Cobham is great too. Wait... You know BD? Hell yeah, dude.

Anywhere But Here Turns 3 Years Old on Friday

Anywhere But Here hit's it's three year anniversary on December 7th. With over 700 strips published to the web, and it's claim that it's the Number 1 viewed webcomic on Modern Tales, it's rather amazing it's as horribly uninspired as it is. According to his blog, Jason Siebels, the creator of this b...

I took an entire class on jazz, and yes, Swing jazz is also jazz. yes but where do you draw the line between swing jazz and jazz, frankly i find jazz music really hard to dance to. You don't. BeBop IS hard to dance to, because it's SUPPOST to be hard to dance to. That doesn't mean it's NOT jazz. Ja...

It really depends on what you define "jazz" as. There's swing, bop, lounge, fusion, cool, big band, tin pan alley, ragtime, new orleans, 50's Pop, Neuvo Jazz Revival, and the shit that Kenny G puts out. As a preable I'll say this: This is the first law of being a fan of jazz is this" You MUST own a ...

The Return

Hello folks, been awhile. For those of you new, my name is Jason...and I write the exceptionally uninteresting series Anywhere But Here . After a hiatus due to...uh...LIFE...I am, against all measure of common sense, rebooting the strip. So, if you fancy a gander of brand spanking new...yet, remarka...

Where have YOU been?! :wink: In a mostly post-coital haze. We thought you got popular and forgot about us. Not so much popular, as "adjusting to the engagement/married life". Heck, I took close to a month and a half off the strip for honeymoon/needing to figure out how to schedule my time better.

Yep, the super black india ink. It tends to be a little thin for me when I first open a bottle of it, but I just leave the top off of the container for two or three hours before I use it and that seems to give me a little bit heavier ink. I've also liked the windsor newton matte calligraphy inks, si...
