    I sucked sooo bad at my drawing class, i just had to accept the fact that i have poor hand coordination.

    But if you really want to do good at this just set your mind to it, it will come.

    I've never oil painted before but some of Titian's and Bosch's oil paintings are awesome. And I usually really hate art history.

    ha-ha. I'm right there with ya. I'll give ya the secret I learned with oil painting. I wasted the entire semester trying to paint nice looking stuff. Spent tons of hours in the studio painting. The end of the semester rolled around, I owed the teacher 5 paintings because I was out sick for two weeks and I had exactly one day to finish them. I went in around midnight after hitting the bars. I spent about 30 minutes on each painting using nothing but a palette knife. I was almost out of paint, so I really had to scrape the last bits off the masonite I was using as a palette. The last two were half paint and half masonite. The teacher about wet herself. She wouldn't shut up about how good they were. I just sat there thinking, you gotta be kidding me. I waste all that time trying to make this shit look good, when all I had to do was get drunk and slop the paint on with a palette knife in less than 30 minutes. damn.

    sculpture...I sanded the prints off my finger tips. love it.
