Notre Dame Ecouche Orne France by hubert61

Oh my, I hardly know where to start with this one. (That's a good thing, it looks amazing!) The colors appear very vibrant, and the ang...

Overall, the shading is excellent. Her eyes are well done as well, with excellent shadowing and focus. I do think the mane and tail may...

Where's a Good Song When You Need One?

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 7, 2013, 2:53 AM

Hey everyone who actually enjoys reading journal posts. Today, I need to get this off my chest:


Haha. That'd be funny if it were actually true. But seriously, music can be quite the slippery little nuisance in my mind- as a drummer, I always have a rhythm in my mind, a beat I need to listen to. However, when I try to search through my playlists for just the right song..
It's never there.
And worse is when I try to make it. I'll grab my drumming practice pad or run out to my garage and bang on the drums 'till I get the perfect beat, and that'll satisfy me for a moment.

And then I realize that I need something to accompany it.

Glorious. Fan-flipdoodly-tastic. Now I'm gonna go full songwriter on this beat until I eventually twist myself into and endlessly entwined head conversation about musical theory and what sounds best until I finally forget what the heck I was doing anyway. It's like walking into another room after debating over and over what object you want to get from that room, and right as soon as you step through the doorway, your mind lets out a massive bean burrito fart and you fall flat on your face in annoyance because you knew that something you needed was important.

And that's another thing. Ever realize how flipping stupid the human brain can be? It was made to handle thousands of seconds, a hundred years worth of information, and yet as soon as you become fascinated at how fascinating the fascinated thing inside your head is, you'll find yourself picking your nose and licking it off your finger like it's a gosh-diddly-dang gummy bear or something.

Classy, neural network. Real classy.

I love ponies. Looooove ponies. I've only been drawing for about a year now, and it really is very fun. I've lately been working on more complicated stuff, like photoshop digital art. Restarted after an old account on DA, felt as though I needed to ;) Here's more of my literature:…

Of course!
I got here through your signature.
Very clever, you. XD
Your art is pretty awesome, by the way. I especially love your slenderman painting, even though I fear him. C:
