My name is Robert Goldengate, and I am the strongest knight in history. To the outside world, I’m an ordinary man trying to start a career in finance; but, secretly, with the help of my DeviantArt friends, I fight criminals and protect innocent people using my buckypaper armor and sword in addition to COLT: an intelligent, fighting Ford Mustang invented by a late genius billionaire.

What I am is a symbol: the idea that anyone, no matter their past or present struggles, can rise up again stronger than before. I represent the concept that success, regardless of the obstacles, is never truly borne out of reach. If you have one or more ideas that you want to share with the world but have encountered stumbling blocks along the way, then I know what it is to be you, and I want you to pick yourself up and continue towards success. And the best way to rise above naysayers is simply not to submit to their vapid fury. Know this, and you, too, can dream the impossible dream. You, too, can fight the unbeatable foe. You, too, can run where the brave dare not go.

You, too, can reach the unreachable star.

May hope be with you always.

I am Colonel Knight Rider, the Sentinel of San Francisco.

Hello, watchers! I have decided to return to full in DeviantArt for a specific reason. Contrary to a certain man’s claims that I would never experience actual love, over the past week, I finally did for the first time in my life. But there was one problem: it was too much love all at once. Without publicly naming this woman to protect us both from unwelcome attention, I will explain exactly what happened. I met this woman my age, maybe a couple of years older, in a social group I joined to establish a more balanced life outside the Internet. She had competed in a variety of Highland games since high school despite not being of Scottish ancestry herself. In fact, she wasn’t born in America, but I’m not going to publicly name her country of origin, again in the interest of protecting her privacy. When she asked if I knew what the hammer throw was, I happily chimed in, “Know it? My people invented it!” We had a good conversation, and I suppose, at some point while I was using

I’d like to give a special shoutout to my young colleague @Crossoverlover19 for helping me with my characters’ arms. I needed some advice on how to make a fixed elbow shape that could be repositioned with relative ease in response to arms being bent from a side perspective, as the average human arm can bend up to 145 degrees, a little more than 3/4 of a semicircle. So, she showed me a short video hack using a triangluar structure for optimum arm angling. And, for many reasons, triangles are a builder’s best friend, even in digital design. Using my new Golden Elbow Ratio, I can flip and stretch this arm segment as I see fit for bent arms without worrying about waypoints. :D Here are illustrations of the problem I was having and its solution: Thank you, Madison!
