Yes it seems anytime Trump touches anyone they start
acting the same as he does. They start lieing about everything 
and anyone who isn't for Trump. It's almost as if he threatens
them somehow if they don't give him their total loyalty.  Just like
a mob boss. Only Trump is more like a spoiled rich kid who is 
used to getting everything he wants. It's been reported he has
temper tantrums when he doesn't like a news report. I heard
president Nixon was the same way..

The GOP should be telling the states to upgrade their voting systems
to protect against foreign attacks. Instead they are griping about the
investigation of Russia helping Trump. They are trying to  say why
talk about Russia? After all they helped us take power. I can guarantee
if the shoe was on the other foot they would be raising holy heck if
the democrats didn't work to stop foreign attacks on voting. Trump
has tried to blaime the Democrats for allowing their servers to be
hacked. As if the Republican servers weren't. They were attacked
as well. The difference is their information wasn't released to the
public online.

Trump always claims his gut is smarter than anyone else. I wonder
where his gut was when he met with the N Korean leader? Even
though Trump claims N Korea is going to get rid of its nukes they are
still adding them. I hope Trumps Gut does better when he talks to
Putin. Actually I think Trump is more interested in helping Trump than
the United States. This is why the meeting should be recorded as well
as all communications with Russia's leader.

Trump was complaining about Germany paying Russia billions for energy,
while we pay even more to Saudi Arabia for crude oil. I think Trump is
trying to get Europe to buy our natural gas. Gas we would have to
liquefy and ship across the Atlantic ocean. We should keep the gas for
our own use, not selling it to other countries. Selling it would make it
cost more for Americans. Why? because selling massive amounts
would create a shortage, and they would use that as an excuse to
raise the price.

Trump is in the UK right now. Shooting off his mouth about all sorts of issues and making himself look more like a fool than he already is.  >:(

Got to love you Brits. You sure can come up with some of the most brilliant ideas. Love the baby balloon of Trump! Nice play! Toddler in Chief for sure!  :D  :D  :D






It's even more hilarious when you realize that in the UK "Trump" means "Fart".
And I think we ought to adopt that slang because right now our president is just hateful cloud of noxious gas that is claiming to do good but in reality kills everyone who comes in contact with it.
Trump IS a horrible smelly fart of agent orange. :D

general non-furry discussion / Re: T G I F What are you doing this weekend?

Going to my mom's to discuss arrangements for her to move in with me. Unfortunately this means my brother, who hasn't had a job in the lat 25 years will be coming along. My mom I can understand. She's running out of money and can no longer afford to live in her condo. My brother is a mooch and i'm not cool with that. Will see what happens. I've lived by myself for 15+ years now. This is going to be interesting at best. Guess I'll have to learn to put cloths on when I walk through my house : )

So awesome, I mean, dang Holt5!
Nice subjects, nice facial expressions!  I still think you are getting into an interdimensional transporter and going to somewhere and sketching the people there, just saying.

So if I may ask... how long does it take you to get "started" , and then how long does it take you to finish it?
Does it start slow and then speed up as it takes form?  What's the hardest part for you?

For me, I can barely get started with a drawing, and then it takes me forever to get something done.   Then it looks like junk.   But I know I am not an artist, so...hey. 

Good work!
 :)

Hey thanks, Jade! I'm glad you like it!

Hmmm, getting started insofar as laying out the basic lines and figuring out where I want everything to go? That depends. If it's something simple, it can take less than 5 minutes in most cases. If it's complex, it could take 10+ minutes, and I just end up updating and figuring everything out as I go along on a lot of them too.

My drawing speed can vary from day to day: sometimes I feel like I can work like lightning, have everything under control, and can just churn out a good piece. But other days I feel like I've forgotten everything I've learned, can't get a single thing to look right, and NOTHING gets done, ha ha. Overall though, my drawing process stays pretty steady. By the time my outlines are ready (if I'm using outlines) I'm usually ready to go right onto the filling-in phase.   

The hardest part of any drawing for me is patience in most cases. I also tend to have the most trouble drawing hands and feet, but I've slowly been getting out of that and finding new things that cause me trouble heheh.

I used to have the same problem actually - and still do from time to time. Probably the biggest help to my work speed has been learning with form studies. My mistake when I first started drawing was thinking "more detail = realism" but that is not quite the case. When you try to go into a drawing and just detail the heck out of it to make it look nice, it not only wears you out really quickly, but it ends up looking really messy because it's like trying to fit too many clothes in a badly-shaped suitcase. To make an object look realistic, it has to look like the proper shape of that object first - before any actual detail is added. And for that you need an understanding of how light works and also some basic anatomy.

If drawing is something that interests you, whether or not you want to call yourself an artist, it is a great thing to learn and understand. I know of a few people on Youtube you can check out if you would like to look into it. Form studies might seem boring and over-complicated at first, but with the right teacher they can be a lot of fun, and you can make some big jumps in your art quality if you're willing to put in the effort. Also sorry for the wall of text, but I love talking about art stuff.   (:

"Puts dunce hat on the Trump Toddler."  :D


President Trump trys to lie his way out of a recorded interview
by the British press saying he felt the prime minister wasn't doing 
a good job.

Trump won't admit he isn't liked by the people of London. Instead
he blames the British government for this.  A poll shows only  11% of
the people of London like him. 89% would kick him out of Britain if
they could. 

Trump also says the US is paying 90% of the NATO bills. This is another
lie as the US currently pays 22%.  Trump also claimed to say he might 
pull out of NATO  if the other members didn't pay up. Another lie as the
French President reported that Trump did not say that in closed meetings.

Trump claims he got the NATO member to pay more. This is another lie.
The Obama administration who got the members  to increase spending
to 2% of their GMP by 2024. Not Trump.

The GOP controlled senate continues their irresponsible actions. They voted
to put a man with little or experience in charge of the criminal section of the
justist department. A man who could put an end to the special counsels investigation of the Trump administration if others above him were fired.
This man worked for a Russian bank in the past so he should have excused
himselfof any descians the Russian investigation, but he refused to do so.

The GOP congress continues to  claim the FBI tried to get H Clinton elected.
This is ridiculous as if anything the FBI helped Trump get elected. The GOP
and Trump have little or no respect for the US constitution and should be
punished for breaking their oath of office. Unfortunately only the voters can
do this. So only time will tell.

I think the reason people support Trump is that they are afraid. During
Obama the country moved a bit towar the left. Minorities, and the LGBT
gained more rights. Many people fear people who look and act different.
Many people consider homosexuality a perversion and a sin against
their religion. Religion has no place in our government, but many people
feel it should at least guide goverment in it's laws and practice. The
trouble with religion is how it's interpitied. One persons rights is another
persons idea of a sin.

furry greetings / Re: Newcomer here!

For the newbie questions:
1. Through google. I've been aware of it for many years, though.
2. 10 years, give or take a year, as it is one of many fandom I look through for content.
3. Not sure about a fursona, I have a common avatar I use from place to place, but I just am myself for it. (Edit- Thinking of the question, I do have a background and characterization of it, though.)
4. I enjoyed the laid back, silly atmosphere of most fan creations. I never though NSFW type but to each his/her own.

President Trump has created a first in Britain. The largest
protest march against any US President in history. I have
say Trump has earned it with his anti democratic stance.

Trump has done much to hurt relations with our democratic
allies. He has gone out of his way to speak nicely with most 
every autocrat around the world. If NATO fails Russia will
liekly try to move boarders in eastern Europe. It's countries
pushing other countries aroud that started WWII. With NATO
standing behind it's members countries like Russia isn't likely
to try incursions into it's neighboring countries. This is why
Russia didn't want Ukraine joining NATO.

Trump is using nationalisic feelings in our country to gain
votes for a relection in 2020. Constantly telling lies and
false stories every day. The man cares nothing for
anyone but himself and his family.

A dozen Russian  hackers have been indicted for illegal access
to computers to affect the 2016 election. No Americans thus
far. It's not likely Putin will send these men to the united states
for prosecution. Trump meets Putin in a few days. I doubt if
Trump presses this issue with him. In the past Trump just says
Putin said he didn't have anything to do with it, and that seems
to be good enough for Trump. Both well known for their lies.
