ReaperGlancing upon crimson skies,
like a raven he lay in wait.
A fallen angel perched up high,
counting as the final hour drew nigh.
As crimson gave way to a velvet black,
a veil of darkness cloaked the land,
as fields of gold were stained with steel,
with the Devil they sealed the deal.
As the still of night was pierced with screams,
among the cries moved a force unseen,
like a mighty plague he swept the land,
as the face of God turned,
and He lifted His hand.
No army or weapon stood as darkness loomed,
from the start they had sealed their doom,
and in the now crimson fields where his task begun,
no one was left,
his work was done.
As he stood alone in the killing fields,
his grief betrayed by his eyes of stone.
were those who lay around him victims of wrath?
Or testaments of those who gazed upon him,
the face of Death?
Irrational Confidence and how it Helps the ArtistFolks,Irrational Confidence and how it Helps the Artist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was doing some studying of construction this morning and it got me to thinking on some stuff that might be helpful to you crazy kids that wanna break into comics as artists.
When I was coming up, I had an irrational confidence. I didn't know it was irrational at the time, but I can now see it upon reflection. I just KNEW that I was gonna be able to do this one day.
But when I go back and look at old drawings I did, I think, "What the hell was I thinking?" I mean, I was BAD. I definitely could draw, but I was a complete amateur in every way. A hobbyist. I was a guy that had a better jump shot than his friends and somehow I knew that meant I could play in the NBA.
This confidence could have been a hindrance, though, if it was the wrong type of confidence. My confidence wasn't that I was already good enough to draw professionally. My confidence was in that I would look at art and think, "I can figure out how to do that".
I've seen plenty of guys along the way that had the w

The truth of the matterI find it amusing…..when ur a friend or in any type of relationship with someone. 9 times outta 10 u won't matter. the times u do, great. but most the time you'd have more of a relationship with a brick wall. cuz at least the brick wall responds. maybe not verbally respond, but you have better luck having a relationship and convo with it because at least you can hear your own voice reverberating off the wall back to u. but 9 times outta 10 in my experience…u rarely matter to someone. When push comes to shove, and ur in a pinch. they'll never be found. But oft, very very often. u never say goodbye, but eventually..after a long enough time, you do. and thats when for the first time they actually miss you, and regret. ironic aint it. I have had this with many friends close and far. college friends, online friends, family. I have had that from all those categories.The truth of the matter3 years ago in Personal More Like This
but my basis thesis remains…..n matter who it may be, if ur always there, putting in extra effort and trying to be there anyti
An answer for many of y'allOk most of u I talk to a lot, have known me a good while. And several of you have asked and wondered Y I ignore if u ask how am I, and instead ask how are you, are you sure ur ok, whats wrong, talk to me, etc.An answer for many of y'all3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) y I ignore when u ask how I am is just cuz I am used to hiding it and cuz I don't give a fuck about me
2) the reason I always ask y'all is well one I have had friends over dose, pass out from cutting to much or to deep etc. but the worst one was a close friend( not from da) but still not saying any name. I won't tell every detail, lets just say abusive dad, he hit a fuck load, so many hospital visits told her to go die. psychotic ex boyfriends that would do that to, one ex that hit her with his car, she cut and drank like fuck, felt horrible, umm been raped several times. so ya. me and her talked a lot, she wanted to kill herself for a long time, id always call and dozens of times talked her out of it. so last year mid to end of august. she called me and flat out decided shed
