    I still using both actually. I think Chrome's responsive and mobile views/tools are nicer than Firefox, and since I have taken to using Brackets text editor for doing a lot of my development work, I end...

  • what is this art style?

    Newbie question:

    Is there a name for the currently popular style of art which depicts the features of someone's face in two tones (black and white), using shadows to show shape? Also would be appreciated any links to good examples of this.

    I've exhausted google image search, deviantart, shutterstock and haven't really found enough examples of what I'm looking for - the face looking directly at the camera, no head tilts.

    Thanks

      Design is not decoration.
