      "We've got these chains that hang around our necks / People want to strangle us with them before we take our first breath. / Afraid of change, afraid of staying the same, / When temptation calls, we just look away."

      Excerpt from an email I'm currently writing to a friend.

      Have you ever had one of those moments in life when you feel so incredibly detached from everything that makes up your world? Or when everything has become so.... stagnant. That people you used to talk to are so unchanging. Day after day is the same entire looping schedule that you've somehow found yourself trapped in. That nothing is worth remembering because it was just like yesterday and the day before.

      Sometimes, I want to break free outside of this subtle jailhouse and explore life. Talk to strangers. Color the world. Be something different in other people's lives.

      Other times, I'm just a mindless drone that carries on with life as if it is nothing special to begin with.

      In a way, the sense of freedom I want to taste is dangled away from me with the fact that I'm too young. The fact that society has created this... system of which they must know your every action, your very location, your very identity. They instill a sense of real fear to bind you inside of your own tiny world. Rapers. Murderers. Armed lunatics who will bleed you until you die. Humans who are only human when they walk through our daily lives, unknown and anonymous to us.

      What I have always wondered was if I was just one person out in the world, away from home and those that know me, what kind of people would I meet? What kind of stories would I hear? What kind of places would I stumble across? What would I witness? Experience?

      But of course, no one would ever allow me that pleasure. Everyone is just simply afraid and so we confine ourselves and the people we love inside this incredibly bland jailhouse of a life.

      Just thought I'd share.

      Also, I was watching Waking Life earlier. It's actually very bland event-wise and the animation is kind of disorienting, though it is very fitting. It's mostly the dialogue that makes it. In other words, it's a very philosophical movie. Of which I'm going to blame as the reason all this thoughtfulness is being spawned at the moment.

      Flat colors.

      Yes, I've been procrastinating my todraw list.

      I do admit that forgoing the tablet and using the touchpad makes things kinda like finger painting. With one finger.

      That doesn't mean I like coloring any more than I do though. Especially with the cleaning up my whole not-coloring-in-the-lines bit.

      Gonna go figure out the background and other miscellaneous things nowz.

      Will go force self to draw nowz. Draw as in color. And some stuffs. Yeah.

      I hate coloring. Takes me forever.

      If I could watercolor or paint something instead, I would. But I'm not that talented in that realm of traditional art.

      And I feel fine. For the most part anyway.

      Priorities and life and such are currently undergoing some sort of consistent changing. If that makes any sense at all. Preoccupation. Procrastination. Obsession. Something. I guess that means I'll be a bit sporadic.... or missing. Again.

      Mah well.

      I was going to go ramble some sort of boring drabble having to theme around a cup of tea over at LiveJournal. But I don't really have an inspiration bases for that.

      And thus, I substitute with this doodle:
      bird.png

      In other news, hopefully I'll be able to wear that "Ninja's can't catch you if you're on fire" shirt when it comes in. <3
      Been wanting it for a while.

      I also have this book I got for a buck at Goodwill. It's small and has a light blue hardcover, decorated with dyed, circular cuts of leaves and tissue paper. There's only one ripped-out page at the front, and the rest of the pages are blank. I already have a sketchbook. And I generally type my stories and poetry instead of write it. And it might not be for half a year to a year before I need a new journal book.

      In other words, I have absolutely no clue what to do with it. I just have it.

      ...

      Freedom is so confining.

      Not only that, but I don't really have a cause behind anything I make. When I do, that's usually the better stuff. Since it comes from the heart.

      And yaddayaddayadda. Insert inspiring message here. Like anyone really cares.

      People can be so complex and yet so simple. Everyone is the same and yet so different. In short, I just found it slightly amusing that no one really cares and yet an opinion means everything in the world. It makes that "NOBODY FUCKIN' CARES" response so cheap and ineffective. And it's just so depressing. You're opinion doesn't matter because no one cares. No one cares that no one cares. I suppose the bottom line of that statement is just to go shoot ourselves right now because nothing matters and life is so goddamn meaningless.

      zomgz u emo!!!1!! lololol go die alrdy emokd >:(

      Or something. I don't know. I'm tired. And I hate thinking.

      And yes, I know. If it weren't for the doodle this might be a WALL OF TEXT. Oh wait, no. That would be when the enter key would be broken and coding is not possible to create line breaks or paragraphing.

      I think I've come to dislike journaling a little. It's almost like talking to myself quite a bit. Maybe I should have let my thoughts run on LiveJournal instead, haha. I hate having more than one place to journal.

      Anyway, I need to get out of this place.

      Mah baby hatchling's a-growin' ups! <3

      Th' link goes to the recent WIP sketch. Because I need as much concrits as I can get. And I'm pretty sure y'all play more Halo then I do. :D

      Which is kinda funny, because I usually don't physically ask for constructive criticism very often.

      S'alright.


      Bugs have also been a creepin's in mah room lately. Currently, there's a spider hanging out somewhere. It came chargin' at me and I tried to smack it... 'cept there's no corpse to be seen, so I figure it's still alive somewhere. Also, snowflies are kinda annoying. As are anything that is small, dark, and winged. Like lil' winged ants.

      Anyhow, I'ma leave the WIP as is for a few days before trying to ink it. I haven't decided how I want to color it yet, though I guess it'll most likely be digitally.... since I'll guarantee that I'm going to fudge around the details while inking... It always happens.

      Second fanciest sketch in my idea book indeed.

      It's mah baby hatchling for this drawring idea I have in my head :D
      T'was both practice and needed reference. I'm off on the armor in some places and I BS'd a few spots I couldn't figure out but eh, it's close enough. I kinda wish I had something more reliable to refer to instead of all the screenshots and pictures and things straight off the Bungie site.

      It'll prolly take me a day or two before I'm finished and got it uploaded onto tha gallery.

    • Days of Wonder

      I finally decided to get my butt over onto my old sA account and clear it out. I've got a new one up that I hope to keep and not drop off the face of the earth like I did for my last one.

      Which, hopefully will be easier. Especially since I'll be taking visual arts. And most likely will have a lot more time on my hands to make stuffs.

      I was also in the process of making brownies from some store bought brownie mix that my sister went and got. I was preparing the concoction that the mix needed to go in when I noticed one of the eggs I used had a couple bright red specks on them. For a moment I was wondering why the hell there would be blood on an egg yolk. Then I came to the conclusion that my egg had a little baby fetus. Unless you have a better idea of what a blood spec that felt like a piece of grain covered in slime goo might be. I plucked it out and trashed it after staring at it for a while and contemplating catching a picture with my phone (since I don't own a digital camera), which I didn't do.

      The brownies were delicious though.

      And happy fourth of July or sommat. Even though it isn't technically the fourth yet.

      Recently completed. A request I've kinda had sitting around for like a couple weeks >.>

      Yes, I know there're probably a ton of things wrong in it, specifically the lighting. But that's alright.

      I went driving for the first time yesterday. T'was fun. I was gonna blog that for the sake of having something new up but then again, I figured I'd at least have a image of some sort to post. And thus I do.

      Corel Painter is actually kinda fun to use. Although apparently, from what I know, there're no hotkeys for the tools. Bummer.



      Edit: Ho crap, I just realized I didn't really finish the guitar! (There aren't any frets...and other whatnot...) Damn, I'm always forgetting at least something when I'm working on these things, haha. Mah well.

      I get that all the time. You just end up with these long awkward silences, like whenever I see this old school friend of mine and we're like "Oh hi," and "How are you?" and then there's nothing else.

      hmmm... well i'm back in class monday, so i could ask my computer teacher about it, or you could go to his website...

      Mac Lab and drop him a question about it...

      oh, and don't forget to mention my REAL name: Jake Clement, as the person who refered you to him, so that he doesn't think you're crazy, and if you want, you can look at my crappy portfolio on there of some stuff i did last semester...

      anyway, he'll probably know, he was a hippy artist back in the 80's... don't tell him i said that

      They stopped making new comics around 2001. If you google I bet you could still find some of their stuff hosted on separate websites.

      As to them getting shut down. I think they just couldn't afford the space on the server to keep hosting their website. But I don't know for sure. A guess a few years of stagnancy would do it though.

      I could say the same except for the few moments when pictures are pretty much a must. I still gotta take/post a picture of my new suit jacket. Only problem is, I haven't really found a pair of pants that go well with them.

      Retrospective comment concering your yearbook art: Ah the yearbook, I remember when I missed my chance to be in the yearbook comitee to practice for a play that never got put on. Stupid drama department.

      Back to what you were saying:
      Yeah, if I was more of a conforntational guy I'd put up a "People Against Noobs Who Use Random Hot Girl Pics As Avarars" sig or whatever that thing is, but then I'd probably get hate mail, like that time I said Geoff is a jerk and some random teen girl started posting me poinson-keyboard memos.

      I'd like to point out that I stay well away from the over-18s threads. I looked at one once when someone I knew posted a thread. Some of that stuff is worthy only of my "just-wrong-sam" gif.

      Anyway...
