HOAROUS or semiramis or horus or mei or I forget what else people call me these days
age: 23
are you in art school? NOPE I'm in the cognitive science program at Carnegie Mellon
where you at: [ profile] hoarous | [ profile] semiramis | [ profile] hoarous
what mediums do you use? mostly digital these days.
whaddya want: currently I'm trying to figure out how to write a tutorial to explain how to hack your brain to make use of top-down parietal stream feedback to portray volume in drawing?! Which in practice is a lot less complicated than it sounds, but I need to condense the science part a bit to make it more accessible to laypersons. OTHER THAN THAT THOUGH I want to see what the art community on dreamwidth is up to!
meigui: fanart: Horus; American Gods; Neil Gaiman. (zz caramell)
