My response to this link: www.facebook.com/adobesteals/i…

And this is exactly why schools should use free software. Not just because it means you can learn from how the software is coded, as Richard Stallman likes to suggest, but because you could have avoided issues like this. But in general, you could have your license for proprietary software revoked at any time, and not being a student and having access to the regular priced version of it doesn’t save you from having a supposedly perpetual license revoked. Now that doesn’t mean I’m not sympathetic to people who have had this happen to them, as it’s not their fault this is happening. I deeply sympathize with all the people who have lost their fundamental tools they need to earn a living because of this, and I fully support a lawsuit against Adobe and any other company that tries to pull this stunt, but in an effort to encourage more organizations and individuals to use free software, I think this makes a very strong case for why use of proprietary software, especially in educational institutions should be discouraged. It’s bad not only for students who are affected by this, but it’s also bad for educational organizations who depend on software from companies that produce the proprietary software. And it might serve as a warning to people who still have their “perpetual” Adobe licenses for student editions because you might soon find your licenses being revoked. In which case it might be a good idea to look into other alternatives, including the free software GIMP and Krita. I’m already advertising the usage of Krita as best I can, and I will be using and promoting it during a stream at a convention, but if we needed another example among a list of growing examples that illustrate why free software is more important now than ever, and more people should use and support them, then here’s another one.

PS: Not entirely sure I like the idea of promoting this, as it’s one step away from piracy (and it is one of the steps required to successfully pirate a perpetual license Adobe CS product), but if you think this might be an issue, and your career and possibly your life depends on it, and your student license hasn’t yet been revoked, you could try adding a blacklist entry to Adobe’s servers in your hosts file to prevent Adobe from revoking your license, or from your app from finding out it’s been revoked. I’m not going to explain exactly how this works, as I don’t want to encourage piracy, but I think you can find out how to do this elsewhere. Alternatively (and more legally), you could just unplug your computer from the Internet entirely, or only allow it access to an internal server with no access whatsoever to the outside Internet, and transfer files the old fashioned way to another computer with Internet access. I have no idea if this works for CS6, as I only know this technique has success with CS5 or earlier, but if anyone has tried this, do let me know if it works. I’m just a little curious.

PPS: The technique mentioned above also works for Google Chrome if you dislike its autoupdate behavior.

Can someone please tell me why DA is still the only gallery I'm aware of that doesn't let you use umlauts in the title?

Made this with Krita and switched to the Mac version somewhere near the end. I hope that will fix the color issues with the Mac because it looks a bit different on the Windows side.
Also used a harder brush this time.

I do gift art if I feel like it. But since it's "gift" art, don't bother asking about it. You get one or you don't get one.

If you request an OC, I most likely won't draw it. I tend to find a lot of people don't know how to properly design an OC. It doesn't inspire me enough to want to draw them. Sorry.

I think you need to do a drawing of James Clerk Maxwell physic's unsung hero. Seriously the guy has almost 0 public recognition even though he's one of the big 3. A physicist of the first rank. A physicist's physicist. In the same style as your newton pic.

Hello Angelus. I too have come across your images of the Prince of Mathematicians, Gauss, and must say I am impressed. I have just started a club called the Gaussian Society at my college. We are currently working on getting a website up for our members to stay connected and collaborate on projects. Mostly, we will be working on projects that allow us to team up with high schools and jr highs to educate the younger generation on the amazing people and history of math and science, as well as conduct fun experiments. I was hoping to get your permission to use your amazing Gauss images on our website. You can see the current under-construction homepage at gaussiansociety.com. 
It's great to see a math nerd with such amazing artistic talent.

Hi Angelus, I came across your amazing mathematicians image and was curious if I could have permission to use it as the background for one of our true/false videos (for example, we did a games version here www.youtube.com/watch?v=dR5fHW… and are planning on coming out with two on mathematicians). Let me know either way! You can contact me at spikedmath@gmail.com or reply here. 

All the best, Mike (Spiked Math)

Sure. Would also appreciate it if it was credited to this account if you have a section for credits somewhere.

Do let me know when that video comes up though. Thanks.

I don't do commissions, as it says in my profile, but I do art trades. I usually prefer doing art trades with people who are about the same skill level that I am at though.
