Hi, all.
I'm UpsetBoulevard, but you can call me Tyler.


I'm new to dA and I am still getting to grips with how everything works, but so far it has been quite easy to pick up. I've been a passive user of dA for years, though simply to look at the work of others. My favourite thing about the site is all the little communities who get to know each other and interact regularly, and as a result I finally decided to make an account.

I'm hoping to meet some good friends here, so anyone willing to befriend me would be greatly appreciated!

I'm seventeen, male and from England. I love all forms of art, though my favourites are probably film and literature. I'm looking to get involved in digital art and will hopefully be getting a Wacom tablet for Christmas!

I like LOTS of things, so if we talk for long enough we're bound to find common interests to build a friendship on. I'm also really open to new ideas, so I appreciate people sharing things they love with me, as chances are I will probably end up liking it too!

So, yeah. Thanks for reading and hopefully I can meet some great people through the site!

Thank you so much. ^^
I will most likely end up holding you to that offer, I'm still getting used to everything!

I love film production! I'm caught up with producing material for my Media and Film coursework assignments right now, but when I have some spare time I'm going to direct something especially for dA. Part of my obsession with film involves collecting archive footage from old television broadcasts - which is SUPER nerdy, but I love film and I love the 50s in particular. Aside from that, I like drawing - nothing with artistic merit, just little doodles and such. Then your average Joe hobbies: listening to music, going to concerts, reading etc. On the subject of reading, I love writing, too - but again, I'm not very good. I just enjoy it!

How about you? :meow:

:iconsinniey:
Sinniey Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That sounds fun! I don't know much about film to be honest, but I do understand why you love the 50s stuff! My favourite movie is from the 50s... :)

My interests? Well, I have to say that music is my biggest passion! I enjoy both listening and playing... I play drums, piano and I sing a bit, and then I've played a few random instruments like violin and flute...
Hmm... Besides that, I love to draw (obviously, that's why I'm here) and I also love writing, and I write A LOT!
Recently I bought a camera and started to do some photography, I'm not very good, but it's so much fun! So that's a big interest too!
Hmm, what more do I like..? I'm very interested in astronomy and English culture... And yeah, I LOVE the 70s!! My father use to say that in my mind, I'm probably living in the 70s... ;p

What kind of music do you listen to? :meow:
Reply
:iconupsetboulevard:
UpsetBoulevard Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I love the 70s too! I say the 50s, but I really mean the era starting in the mid 50s and ending at the end of the 70s - what particularly fascinates me is the vast change in such a relatively short space of time, it's like living on a different Earth. I collect vintage, archived film footage from this period and it's so interesting to watch.

Ah, a virtuoso! I love music too, I'm very passionate about it - alas, I cannot play anything other than a synthesizer... Which, let's face it, anyone can do! I'm very impressed by your range of instruments. I will check out your art after writing this, but I'm sure it's very good!

As for photography, I'm the same. I think it comes from my love of film - it's an attraction to documenting something that will never, ever happen again. That's why I love it, anyway - film is obviously capable of capturing longer moment, but photography is just as powerful. That's why I love it, anyway. There's some magical about it. I'm not a very good photographer, mind - I just enjoy it!

Astronomy is a very interesting interest. XD Can you tell me more about that?

I have a ridiculously varied music taste. My favourite band are Spector, they're a relatively new five-piece from London and I highly recommend checking them out. If you're gonna give them a listen, start with 'Chevy Thunder'. I also like artists like Bjork, Lady Gaga, Crystal Castles, Lana Del Rey, Swim Deep, Gabriel Bruce... The list goes on, I couldn't possibly name them all. What about you, what artists do you like?

Really? That's awesome! :D I also collect some stuff... I collect vinyl records from that era, and I agree, it's very interesting to watch! I don't wanna say that everything was better then, but I feel like things - especially film and music - held a much higher standard...

Haha, thanks! :) It's never to late to learn! ;) Why don't you start to play something?
I always wanted to learn to play the guitar... I've tried to learn it, but I just CAN'T! Haha, I think my hands are too small, or it's just something else that's wrong with me, but it always sound horrible when I give it a try... :XD:

I know it's nerdy, but it's actually very interesting! I've felt a fascination for stars ever since I was a kid, and I guess that just developed into a bigger interest for space... Right now I'm studying natural science and my school owns their own observatory, so we have access to the biggest telescope in Sweden! It's very cool! ^^

I LOVE the band Queen!! It's almost embarrassing to admit, but ever since my father introduced me to Queen a few years ago, I haven't listened to much else... But I'm very into classic rock in general... I like David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, but Queen is my all time fav! :heart:
Lady Gaga? :D I was very into Lady Gaga a few years ago, and I still like her very much even though I don't listen to her as much as I used to! Have you ever been to any of her concerts? :)

And I'm totally gonna check them out! I might need to listen to something else than Queen... ;p

I totally agree. I doubt I would appreciate as much if I actually lived in that era, so I don't regard them as 'better' than our time. I just feel that, like you said, standards of the art they produced was much, much higher. (Yes, I consider film and music art!)

Astrology sounds so fascinating, you're very lucky to have those facilities at your school. I'm not sure about anywhere else in the world, but here in England you could see Jupiter beside the moon last night.

Queen, Bowie, The Stone Roses... :love:

Yes, I saw her on the Monster Ball tour in 2010 and then more recently on the Born This Way Ball tour in September. Both times she was incredible. I'm the same, though - I love her, but I think I've grown out of her music a little. She is my favourite person in the industry by far - I love her attitude and her outfits and performances, but musically I think I've matured a little.

You should totally check out Spector. I just finished following them on their UK tour - I did seven dates. The band know me very well and always meet me afterwards, they are super nice. They have a song named 'Upset Boulevard' that they only ever play when I am in the audience, which is rad! They're just so nice and great and YES CHECK THEM OUT. :love:

I saw her at the Monster Ball tour as well! I agree, she's an amazing performer! Haha, I sat outside the arena in 18 hours before so I would get a spot in the front row, but it was sooo worth it! ^^

Oh my... :o That's very cool!! ^^ I will check them out now! :D

I really, really love A Levels. I get to go into college and learn about the things I love, it couldn't be any better. My UCAS was sent off today, actually, by coincidence! I'm hoping I get some offers... :pray:

Very nice! I've visited the campus at Leicester when I was choosing universities - I loved it, but unfortunately they didn't really offer what I wanted course-wise. Glad it's going well!

I'm the same, I despise exams... I'm good at them, providing I've revised, but I do not like them at all. Coursework, however, is another story entirely. I LOVE coursework! What did you take at A Level? :meow:

Well, I love film and I'm good at media. I thought I'd combine the two - it should hopefully lead to a job in making advertisements, fashion films and other promotional material based on film. Of course, the dream is to direct and produce an actual film - but I'd be content with making a living based on any sort of film.

Literature, Psychology and Philosophy - very interesting! What career do you have in mind?

Hi, and welcome! There are so many great people and communities here, I'm sure you'll have no problem finding somewhere where you fit in nicely.

It's cool that you're looking into getting started with digital art... I remember when I got my first tablet a few years back, and it changed how I worked a lot. I need a new tablet now, ahaha. I'm not looking for another Wacom (because I don't have money for one), but I was never dissatisfied with the little Wacom I started with :)

Thank you so much for the welcome! :hug: Hopefully I will find some friends here.

I'm glad you think so! Your work is so adorable, if I ever become half as good as you I will be most satisfied. I'm looking into the regular 'Wacom Bamboo Pen' model, but worrying that the active area is too small. I don't have any other options due to my budget, really, but I was wondering if you have any advice? :meow:

ScribbleBees Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Oh wow, thank you so much! I still can improve on a lot, though. However, being here has definitely done a lot for me. Before I was on this account, I had a different one for over seven years, and the rapid improvement I went through as a result of advice and such from people on this site was just amazing.

Actually, the tablet I'm looking at this time is the Monoprice 10x6.25 tablet. It's a lot cheaper than Wacom, but despite that, it has a larger working area, the same number of pressure levels as the Bamboo tablets, higher resolution, and reviews say that it's actually quite good. Maybe look into that, as well? On the Monoprice website there are over 200 reviews, and on Amazon there are over 100 with a high average, so I figure it's worth a shot!

UpsetBoulevard Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I have been looking excessively at that exact model - I'm very attracted to the price, the active area and the 'tracing layer'. The only problem is, living in the UK, the shipping is an extra $45 dollars which takes the total price up to almost $100, so it really isn't cost-effective for me - for my first tablet, anyway.

Do you have any advice regarding the smaller active area? Is it manageable? 14cm x 9cm does not seem very big, so I practised in a notebook even smaller than that without much difficulty.

One thing I was wondering - how does the tablet react to Zoom? For example, if I were to zoom into a selected area on PhotoShop to work in closer detail, would the entire active area be responsive to just what was shown? Basically, what I'm asking is, can you zoom in to create finer details, with the active area being so small? :meow:

Thanks for your advice, by the way. It means a lot! :dummy:
Reply
:iconscribblebees:
ScribbleBees Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Oh, what a shame that the shipping would do that to the price...

My current, old tablet also has a small working area, and I find it okay to use, but it definitely doesn't give as much freedom since sometimes, you might find yourself having to make long, sweeping strokes on the image with a small motion on the tablet. The disconnect is a bit strange, but it's possible to get over. Also, zooming in is something that I do frequently XD It definitely is good for working on smaller details, yes. The tablet has a one-to-one correspondence with the screen (I think on some, you might be able to block it off to a certain area, but I'm not sure about that, and I wouldn't do it anyways), so it works well for detailing.

You're very welcome! I know I had a lot of the same questions when I first went looking for a tablet. It's important to know what you're investing in.

Film animation looks awesome! I would love to create my own animations, but I am just too lazy and I don't have the right equipment. :) Nerds are cool and smart. Main-stream stuff is bollocks, especially Capital radio station *shudders*.

Well, I suppose I'm an average Joe too! :) What kind of music do you like? And what books do you read?

:iconupsetboulevard:
UpsetBoulevard Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, no! I can't animate at all, haha! I mean actual films. Of course, they're only short because I have neither the facilities nor the funding to make a full-length film, but they're a start. I hope to go into Direction and Production when I'm older. I agree, though, I would love to be able to animate!

Ugh! If I wanted to listen to Rihanna, The Wanted and Jessie J on repeat, I would buy their albums! (Which I will NEVER want to do...)

I have a ridiculously varied music taste. My favourite band are Spector, they're a relatively new five-piece from London and I highly recommend checking them out.

My favourite book of all time is Christine by Stephen King. Not his most popular opus, but by far my favourite. I also love more mainstream stuff like Harry Potter and fantasy-orientated stories like Lord of the Rings and Magyck. What about you?

Do you have any other hobbies? What is your favourite kind of art? :)

Ah, I see. Sounds awesome. :) It must be quite stressful directing your own film, though I am thinking of the director stereotype, you know the one where they are always really quick-tempered and cross. I doubt it's true! :D

Gross, I know. :S I don't understand how people can listen to this rubbish without their ears bleeding, screaming for help.

No, I haven't heard of Spector, but I am willing to listen to their music. Could you suggest a song please? Good choices! I like Bjork and Lana del Rey. My favourite song by Lana del Rey is probably Diet Mountain Dew or Blue Jeans. I have heard some of Bjork's stuff, but unfortunately I don't know any of their names. :) Erm, well my music taste is pretty rocky and hard, but it did derive from Coldplay. And yes, I would name Coldplay as one of my favourite bands. I also adore Paramore, Gorillaz and Evanescence. However, when it comes to music, I'll listen to anything that's unique and has a great beat. Apart from dance. Anything but dance. :(

It would be extremely difficult for me to choose the book I like the best. But I have read all the Harry Potters, The Hunger Games, Twilights etc. Right now, I am reading A Game of Thrones by George R R Martin, which is amazing, and also The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. Recommended by our English teacher, but it's still an execellent read. :aww:

Me? Art? I do Traditional, only because I can't bloody afford a tablet, as much I would love one. I'm crossing my fingers for Christmas though.

Haha, no, you're right! It can be very stressful! Fortunately, I am such a perfectionist that everything is always organized very much in advance... So I don't usually encounter much stress. The main issue that stresses me out is camera battery life, because I insist on doing several takes of everything! XD

Spector are great. Sort of an ambiguous genre - more pop than indie rock, but more rock than indie pop... I recommend "Chevy Thunder" - not their best song, but I find the best song for introducing people to them.

Have you heard the Paradise Edition of Born To Die? It has eight new tracks as well as three bonus tracks, and I think every one of them is even better than all of the songs on the original edition. I will say "Yayo" is a bit naff... But the others are amazing. Particularly "American", "Body Electric" and "Gods & Monsters". I'm glad you like Bjork, too - she's an all-time favourite of mine.

I love some rockier music, too - Paramore being one of them, but also 30 Seconds to Mars, KoRn and Breaking Benjamin, among others. Like I said... Very varied musical taste. I used to be very, VERY anti-rap... But I really like Azealia Banks's stuff. Even if you don't like rap, I recommend a listen - unique and great beats.

The Bell Jar is a great book, I love Plath. Your English teacher obviously has taste! Have you read Plath's more philosophical works? Fantastic.

I've seen your traditional art and you are amazing! I have the same problem with the expense of tablets. Monoprice 10x6.25inches was reccommended to me as they are only $45 which is about £35. The problem is, coming from America, it costs another $45 to have them shipped! Might as well just get a Wacom for that price!

Ah, I see. :) Perfectionists are good, they are very organised and their stuff always turns out to be awesome. But they are picky. I should know, I am one. :XD:

Oooh, that sounds cool! I like indie music already, although it's even better when there are rock elements in it. :3 I'll check it out as soon as I can.

Ah, yes I have! I saw the Paradise Edition advert on Spotify, so I decided to have a little listen. It's great! :D Yeah, 'Yayo' is...weird, but not too bad, though I agree with your other choices. However 'Blue Jeans' is still my favourite by her. Yay! :D

I'm glad you like Paramore. What is your favourite song of theirs? 30 Seconds to Mars is an epic band. I really love 'Kings and Queens'; it's one of my favourites.

Eh, rap is alright, I suppose. But by rap I mean some of Gorillaz's stuff, not Flo Rida and Nicky Minaj. Eminem is very good, although I'm not a fan of some of his newer material. I'll try Azealia Bank.

Some of it. We've been studying some of her poems and her life in class. 'Mirror' is one of them. It's a powerful poem, moreso after you read about her life.

:aww: Thank you! :aww: Sucks, right? I'm browsing everywhere for a decently prices tablet, but I can never seem to find one. Damn you Staples!! I suppose I will have to look online. :XD:

Both English, both perfections and both like similar music... Are you sure we aren't long lost twins? XD

I guess I would have to be super clichéd and say my favourite is 'Misery Business'. I know that it is not their best song, but it has to be my favourite. It's just so big! I also really love 'Brick By Boring Brick'. As for 30STM, my favourite has to be 'Attack' - massive fan on their older stuff. I share a similar stance on you to rap: I generally do not like it. I don't even like Eminem! I find it tacky, clichéd and lacking lyrically. Azealia does have... superficial lyrics, but their used intentionally. Almost as though she is mocking the stereotype. And her beats and rhymes more than make up for lyrical substance.

Her life is fascinating and I love 'Mirror'. I recommend 'Superman and Paula Brown's New Snowsuit' by her, I really love it.

I think I'm going with the Wacom Pen. It's only £50 and has free delivery. :meow:

I doodle little cartoon people all the time and they would make great OCs for me to interact with dA, but I hate the messiness of pencil.
