On second thought, maybe i won't have a slam-bang awesome entry for that Outcast Odyssey Contest after all...

...these DeviantArt Contests just FUCK with my head, they really do.  Every time they announce one, i say to myself -- self, you're gonna win that contest!

And then i put off starting my entry, because there are still four weeks...

...and then three weeks, because of course i want to finish the drawings i've already started...

...and then two weeks, because that's plenty of time...

...and then i start some sketches, but i spent most of my time sketching something else...

...and then i obsessively browse the entries, and realize how great some of them are... and i have to start over, because what i've sketched out isn't nearly good enough to beat them...

...and then there's five days left until the deadline.  Is that enough time?  Not really.  Enough time to half-ass something, but not enough time to create a masterpiece...

...and then i remember how in the previous contests i entered, i never even made the semifinal cut.  What's the point of having some industry bigwig be the judge if they never even see your entry?

...and finally i say, forget it, i'm just going to work on a new commish for one of my loyal customers.  That's guaranteed to be worthwhile, both financially and on a personal level, because it's not just some random shot in the dark.

And then, i despair.



On top of everything else, i've been working six days per week again.  The one day off i have at my desk?  It's not enough time, after laundry and cleaning and cooking and walking the dogs and everything else.

I always want to rush ahead and finish the thing i'm working on to get to the next thing.  And i have to stop doing that.  That last pic i submitted, the one of Aries Passadar?  I worked for a long time on that one.  That's what i have to do this year.  Really... take... the time.  If i end 2015 with only 75 pics, but they're mad complex, then it will be worth it.


Huh... the other day, i saw that new Venture Brothers special, "All This and Gargantua-2."  

It was super neat, although i didn't recognize about half of the characters in it... because for some reason utterly unknown to me, i.... stopped watching the Venture Brothers after the second season?


I need to go back and catch up.

Not watching the Venture Brothers, what was i thinking.


By the way, here are some funny videos.

They cheer me up when i'm despairing.

"A man shitting in a hat is not enough; he must shit in two hats, and then spill one of them." -- Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

"That is most of it, being a wizard -- seeing and listening. The rest is technique."
-- Schmendrick the Magician

"When I was alive, I believed -- as you do -- that time was at least as real and solid as myself, and probably more so. I said 'one o'clock' as though I could see it, and 'Monday' as though I could find it on the map; and I let myself be hurried along from minute to minute, day to day, year to year, as though I were actually moving from one place to another. Like everyone else, I lived in a house bricked up with seconds and minutes, weekends and New Year's Days, and I never went outside until I died, because there was no other door. Now I know that I could have walked through the walls."

-- The Skull.

"The first duty in life is to assume a pose. What the second is, no one has yet discovered."
--Oscar Wilde

“Meaning is not in things but in between them."
-- Norman O. Brown

You're never going to find true happiness, what are you gonna do, cry about it?"
-- Weird Al Yankovic

"What's wrong with running away from reality when it sucks?"
-- Shinji Ikari.

"Life IS pain, your highness. Anyone who says otherwise is selling something."
-- Westley, The Princess Bride

"I'm not in the business of seeing whatever pleases YOU."
-- Master Shake

"This is why i hate middle-aged people -- all they want is attention."
-- Super Milk-Chan

"Comedy is a dying artform. But tragedy? Now THAT'S funny."
-- Bender

"Principal Skinner is an old man who lives at the school. I had to go to his office once because i was dirty."
-- Ralph Wiggum

"The Durions had won the day, but left behind were Bruidd ruins; for the Bruidd had left a Sign, or a Poem, as some would say, and some would not."
-- Stephen Gooch

"He who would break a thing to know what it is has left the path of wisdom."
-- Gandalf.

"The Universe is not mystical in how it exists, but in that it exists."
-- Ludwig Wittgenstein.

"All you need is love. Love is all you need."
-- John Lennon.

"There's no such thing as love. It's just another puffed-up word used by Madison Avenue to sell their skin creams and two-seater cars!"
-- Stewie Griffin.

Wait! I want to ask this again. Which of my (individual) Oni Transformations did you like the best?…

Thanks for the :+fav: :)

No problem.  I really like your Joana and Jana characters!

Since you closed your thread like a bitch I'll reply here.

Just look at the Politics forum. Last year this place was liberal heaven with a few right people trolling. Now, we own this place. That guy who put up the Islam thread got put down like a sick puppy in under an hour. As the left debases itself further and further with cultural Marxism and insane self destructive policies, we will grow stronger and stronger. We will own the future just like you did for fifty years :^)

Hey, i didn't close that thread, a moderator did.

I've never had that happen before.  I'm a bit upset right now.  

Diacraft Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Oh, shit, she must have replied after it was locked or something.

It's OK man, I thought it was appropriate for Politics :pat:
Chronorin Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Me, too.  It was a bold and original thought. Or so i thought...
