MSPainting with Bob Ross

People used to get together and do this on an old forum I was on, and it's the ultimate zen activity. Bob's voice is so soothing, and there's a billion videos to pick from. You really don't need any art skill at all, you just follow along and flail ineptly at whatever program you have up on the other screen. The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross You don't HAVE to share, but you should. I can't draw for crap, but here's what I made the last time I tried this: Oh yeah, here's what I based it on: It is the best art I ever did. :)

Can't you run that painting through one of those new-fangled algorithms and have it shit out a poorly photoshopped painting?

I like your colors better than his tbh, looks very vibrant and a little alien. However it almost feels like CHEATING when a good artist does these...

Your picture of a river was based off a picture of a barn? ... That's impressively weird.

Anyway, yesterday my boyfriend told me a really sad story about Bob Ross, that he and his family were completely screwed over by the executives of the Steve Ross company, so that his family don't get any royalties regarding anything Bob Ross related, and his son Steve isn't even legally allowed to paint under the name "Steve Ross" due to some BS copyright reasons.

I hate socialists a lot but I do agree with them sometimes that CEOs should be violently killed exactly because of reasons like this, I guess that makes me a centrist.

And that's impressively slimy, I'll have to read up more on that later.

Oops, I meant the "Bob Ross Company" not the "Steve Ross Company" ... But yeah, they basically own the rights to his name and all of his artwork, and since they own the "Ross" name, his son can't use it for financial gain, from what I understand.

Kind of like what happened with Halston. (If you guys haven't seen the show, I'd recommend giving it a watch. Ewan McGregor being excessively fabulous and having lots of gay orgies.) But yeah, I guess if you sell a company with your name on it, you essentially sell the rights to your own name.

Damn, painting happy little clouds on Photoshop is a lot harder than I thought. I'll try again tomorrow.
