Admittedly, most perfectionists are probably more stressed out and unsatisfied with themselves than they are confident and smug.
I hope I'm not gambling too much with this one, as I suspect this one is just going to go over some peoples' heads. Well, I was in the middle of drawing something else when I got the idea for this, so it's back to that I go!
I would not yet recommend using muro to anyone. Or rather, the Guy Who Does Not Know How To Use Muro would not recommend it to Anyone Who Already Has Drawing Software. It feels like a work in progress, being unresponsive at times and lacking some features I didn't realize I'd miss (e.g. - scaling a selection). And for whatever reason, my strokes were super shaky when writing those words by hand. That is an anomaly to me that will probably keep me from returning to it for quite some time.
Anyhow, despite all my complaining, it was fun trying to paint again. I am not accustomed to it after doing only cel-shading for so long.
I'd like to leave it at that, but I also feel that I should explain this a bit. So at the dorm cafeteria (Elliott's the awesome dude who swipes me in) you're allowed to take out two cookies, a pastry, or an ice cream.
But what I really wanted was cream cheese to eat with my crackers.
So I devised the devilish plan of putting cream cheese in a cone and bringing it out with me casually as though it were a legitimate iced cream. During the course of fashioning the cheese into something that'd look like soft serve, I noticed that it was quite adhesive, and played with the idea of smashing it against my glasses several times. But of course then I'd get skin flakes all over my cheese, and only very few people like that.
So I drew this picture out of curiosity and the fact that I know that quite a good number of you are, in fact, bedridden with madness. If you can't read what's written up there, that's because I wrote it entirely with my left hand. Anyhow, it says:
"No, that's the beauty of it, Elliott! You see, ice cream would just fall off, but this - this, my friend, is CREAM CHEESE."
