Oooo, I must join in with this thread, since drawing is a major part of my life :)
And i doubt i will join in with any of the many discussions based on the Japanese language until i feel more confident in my knowelege. (I'll have my fun with just reading those discussions for now)

So here goes :D

2 doodles

Edit: My definition of doodle, is just any random drawing that may occur while you have a pen in your hand.
Yes, i get rather into my doodles, but i never really spend longer than 30-40 minutes on them

eh... I agree. I got really bored of drawing anime/manga, so I switched to a mor realistic side. I like it but I just really love doing anime. I find a way to mix them both...

I sketched this in around an hour after someone asked me to draw something Halo... God, Master Chief is freaking hard to draw. And he's even harder to draw when one is too lazy use any guidelines or good references...
Sometimes I think that I'm afraid of thinking, and that scares me.

No offense, but I can't see why anyone would want to do that.

the best way to refrain from being offensive is to do as mother always says. "IF you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all."

I wish I could freehand sketch/doodle as well as some of you all. Being a design drafter you would think I could but I do buildings, so everything gets the square detail and perfect vanishing points..

Which do you think is more harmful in the long run, saying negative things or nothing at all?

And by "good" I think your mother meant worthwhile, not positive.

Actually I was directly pointing out how you started that sentence.
No offense, but....


Whether you realize it or not what you are really saying is, I am going to offend you. The but, in that sentence, says disregard everything before the comma.

If you are really interested, I could get my mom on the line and we can 3-way, that way you can hear it from the horses mouth..

Not necessarily true.

When I last saw the doctor, he said, "No offense meant, but you have to lose some weight."

Sometimes that "No offense meant" is there to indicate "this is something you need to know, it's in your best interests, but you may be such a prickly bastard you'll kill me if I mention that spinach in your teeth."

As a former magazine and newspaper editor, I had to reject many articles for various reasons -- and often they were articles written by people who should be gardening or plumbing, not writing. Often, for their own good (and my sanity), I had to give them advice that they consider some other profession, or take some basic remedial English classes to repair some critical shortcoming. Did I precede these with "no offense meant" or something similar? Hell, yes.

In the case of this comment being taken to task here, perhaps it wasn't the kindest thing, but it was, in essence, truth. And the sooner any amateur artist or writer gets the cold-water splash of reality, the better it is for everyone.

Have you ever watched the first episodes of "American Idol"? These poor, deluded idiots would have been a lot happier if someone in their past had said, "no offense meant, but you're not a great singer." Less ego, less crying, less stoopid.

I suppose you are right Tony. It would be best to just tell them. So then, why start off with no offense meant? Why not just say... what you mean.

I realize the implication of it all, it just makes no sense. maybe I am a sucker for brevity, or maybe I like someone who doesn't hide behind an excuse before the drop the hammer, I don't know, but (hahaha, now you can disregard everything I just said) It seems to me that someone who starts off by saying no offense intended, really knows they are going to offend and just wants to sugarcoat it.

That's exactly the point. It's not *meant* to offend, but the recipient of the message may *take* it as an offense. That's why you tell them up front, "I'm not trying to offend you, but I have to tell you something you may not want to hear."
