    I want to be a graphic designer when Im an adult because I really like to draw, it's my passion. However, my parents dont seem too... happy? They arent angry or anything, they want me to do what i love.. but i dont know. Maybe I shouldnt be a graphic designer? I really want to be, but im scared I wont make enough money. If I do become a graphic designer, will I have enough money to live on my own and support multiple animals? As an adult, right off the bat I'd have to support a service dog, 2 cats (they cant stay with my parents, they are heavily attached to me and get depressed if im gone for too long), 2 ferrets, and possibly my bird (my dad MIGHT want to keep my bird, especially if im in an apartment). Do you think my job could support that? Of course, i want to get married and maybe adopt a child (i cant be pregnant due to health problems), but until then I need to support myself. Are there any other art-related jobs that might make more money? I really need help lol.

  • How do I achieve this type of photography style (photo on right)?

    How do I achieve this type of photography style (photo on right)?

    Best answer: That photo on the right could have been taken on film or digitally. In all cases it is the vision and brain of the photographer which "makes" a photo - the camera is merely the technical instrument. If that photo was taken in the last 15 years or so then it is almost certain that it was taken with some... show more
    Best answer: That photo on the right could have been taken on film or digitally. In all cases it is the vision and brain of the photographer which "makes" a photo - the camera is merely the technical instrument. If that photo was taken in the last 15 years or so then it is almost certain that it was taken with some sort of digital camera since the use of film has declined to a large extent in that time.

    There is nothing unusual about the photo on the right, it is a casual photo taken in a brief moment in a busy street or similar public area. By chance there is another person walking past in the background. The lighting is normal daylight, half-frontal. The lens setting is somewhat zoomed in, but not greatly so.

    What attracts you to that photo? Why do you think it is "special"?

      A product to preserve, that could be pickled, or uv protected, or fireproof, or dehumidify, or painting sealer, or rustproofing, or vacuum sealed,
     
      So you want a device or material that conserves or protects or keeps another product in good condition for longer period of time, nee a due date or expiry or shelf life time limiter,

    We have good and lead and wax that protects against radiation frequencies,
    We have freezers to stores cold goods in
    We have sleeves and boxes to store papers and media in cold dry dark rooms dust free air conditions, bags, to bins, to vaults,
    We have bikes and storage units to store medical and biohazardoys viruses in
    We have cryogenics to store humans or life insyprasis in
    We have taxidermy to store stuffed and mounted animals in,

    So which ever method of storing an object to preserve, like pickling or jams with vinegar or sugar or salts, and in jars or barrels or tanks, those we have, so it is difficult to find something that is not already being used, even radioactive material is preserved in containment fields of concrete and wax, or heavy water things that slow decay are what you want, thus the vouspd of space stills everything, like the core of the moon per se, it just sits there dormant.

  • Is this color closer to lilac or lavender?

    Is this color closer to lilac or lavender?

    From sites I've read, lilac has more of a pinkish tint, while lavender has a blueish one. But someone told me that this is considered lilac, so I'm not sure.

      Under these circumstances, you may be best to minimize colours as pencils, and wait till you approach use of watercolours or oils, then accumulate larger sets of colours,

    But for now, try to learn to glean colours instead, or find cheaters sets to make up for lack of color tones you want.

    Plus you have to look at paper, and erasers, and tape , and taxes and shipping and what you plan to do with them when done, those may require mobpnonies as well, and if you spend on pencils, you may have no paper left to draw on,

  • What exactly happens to our photos and selfies once we die?

    Best answer: Many large research libraries and archives have preserved "average" people's snapshots, family photos, etc., for over a century now, and continue to do so.

    I doubt that any one institution would be interested in preserving every single photo ever taken, but (for example) a university in Florida might be interested in keeping lots of photos of people vacationing in Florida from different periods of time, and lots of photos of orange-growing families on their farms, etc., etc., etc., so future historians and sociologists could look back and find out how people lived in this or that decade.

  • Why do mobile phones find wide angle lenses so difficult?

    We seem to be inundated with claims for zoom lenses on mobile phones, but who wants them? Zoom = blur! But getting everything you wanted included in the photo, especially for inside shots, is a major opportunity every company seems to want to ignore. Why is that?

    Best answer: clothing, markings, fur colors, art style, hair or accessories, and things like that can all make a fursona of a common animal like a fox stand out more. i think art style especially helps. i've noticed that there is a sort of generic furry art style like this http://www.flayrah.com/sites/default/fil... that, while not bad - the art itself is really good in this example, sort of blends together and doesn't stand out as much as a more distinct art style such as this https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DGUulbnU0AE1...
    my fursona is a possum, and while not a super common fursona, i've made her stand out by giving her blonde hair similar to my own, making her grey fur have a lavender tint, giving her clothes and accessories like hair bows and glasses, and drawing her in a cartoony anime art style

  • What is amore accurate representation of myself that others would see me as, a camera or a mirror?

    Best answer: Certainly not the mirror, because it is a reversed image, and because, consciously or not, you are posing to please yourself. The camera image is objectively true, but only for that instant in time. A video is closer to reality, because it shows a range of your motions and expressions. However, how other really see... show more
    Best answer: Certainly not the mirror, because it is a reversed image, and because, consciously or not, you are posing to please yourself. The camera image is objectively true, but only for that instant in time. A video is closer to reality, because it shows a range of your motions and expressions. However, how other really see you is highly subjective and depends on their feelings and experiences, just as how you see yourself, in mirror, photo, or video, is tied up with your self-image. The good news is, most people concern themselves less with the whole issue once they make it through adolescence.
