The Journey
We all stand on the brink, between Hevan and Hell... Creation and Oblivian... Fulfillment and Loss... 
Our fingers and toes scrambling for purchase as familiar stabilities crumble beneath them...
The threads of the beginning stream from us like the banners of Victory...
The Future pulls us forward into an infinity of possibilities...
We cannot conceive of the eventual Goal... The perfection beyond the Ends of Time...
Our path is not to reach Perfection... It is a fine Goal but not Our Destination... 
We define and are defined by the Journey itself...
And the Journey Is THE Thing... .. .

The Small Things
We Started with the Small Things...
The things we needed most...
The things we had to have to live...
But still we could not boast...
For the Creatures of the Forest...
Had just as much as we...
They had Love and Hate and Happiness...
In the Safety of the Tree...
So we built up our Buildings...
Our City, Farm and Town...
And drove out all the Animals...
And Burned the Forest down...
Now we have proved that we are Better...
Than the Deer and Fox and Hare...
We Proved all this Completely... 
When we laid the Forest Bare...

A chance to Rest
The chance to just set...
To call the bright threads of past experience to me...
And have Time to absorb them into myself...
A chance to See... Where I have been... and...what... and why
I have become what I am... .. .

Holy damn, you have some uniquely pleasing stuff on here. :heart:
Dragonforge Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2019
Thank you!!!... .. . One of the nice things about drawing with computer and mouse , is that you can follow a notion when it occurs... and still, save the original thread in case you wish to finish the original idea... .. . As I am Not an organized type ... and have short term memory problems ... it works well for me ... .. .

Oh, trust me, I know what you mean! I would LOVE it if paper had an "undo" button...or layers. I'm mainly a writer but if I draw, I do mixed media: pencil or ballpoint pen outline + digital colors/editing/tweaks because I can't draw with a touchpad (and don't have a mouse, but I suppose that would also be awkward). How do you animate things though?
Dragonforge Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2019
I have a Mac mini computer and use the "Gimp" drawing program...( it is free online) which fits my budget... Basically, I make multiple frames like a flip page book, to do gif's... .. . I started doing 18 frame infinite loop gifs , and now 42 frame gifs... I have been trying to get to the point where I would be able to do a gif that could hang on a wall and hold someone's attention for half an hour... .. .
I really , really like drawing with a computer... .. . I haven't spilled "any" quarts of lime green paint in the kitchen since I switched from graphite to silicon ... .. .

I wanted to make the war elephant but I do not get it because of problems of proportion

A Time Elephant !!!... .. . Wisdom and Endurance... .. . ... .. . My first elephant started out as a Tiger... The drawing was a terrible Tiger but turned out to be a nice Elephant... .. .

Ajajaja so cute😙

I see that and I have something in common
one when drawing fast leaves a funny thing that hurts but why not take advantage of it
There is a law that I use that is. simple character detailed background or detailed character and simple background ... we all win

You art is nothing like I've seen before! I'm in love with the colors and ideas you have, please keep up the amazing work!
Dragonforge Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2018
Thank you so much!!!... .. . I have little control over what I draw on my computer... in the best instances I dream the image... and the " How To " process to make the image... sometimes by using my Gimp drawing program in ways that I had never thought of... That is really FUN... I get to do an image without having to waste all the energy of trying to Think!... .. . Needless to say ... I don't Do "Think " Well ... .. . mostly however My images are controlled by my mistakes... of which I make lots... and my attempts to incorporate the mistake into the image instead of starting over... Being Lazy, prone to mistakes, and wanting to do images with some complexity, makes for interesting surprises for me... .. . If I knew what I was doing I would be dangerous ... .. .
 By the way...WELCOME to Dragonforge !!! ... .. . If you spend time in my Gallery, I recommend keeping a large bowl of Cookies close to hand... .. . Also listening to Ravel's "Bolero" while there, will enhance the experience... .. . My plan is to draw as much as I can whenever I am awake, I will be drawing images as long as I can...but... I am only awake about 4-6 hours a day anymore... .. . I am looking forward to seeing what my images will be like before they are all Dreams... .. .
