A Prophecy
The fulminations of many days' dashed darings Descend on me like vultures in the silence of my mind The culmination of my misdirected wanderings, Bestows on me direction and initiative for flight. And in these dying hours a hope is kindled, For from these dampened ashes a fire will rise. The vision of a dawn more brilliant than any other, The dark horizon gleams in weary eyes.

It's been a while. I guess I should upload some of the art I've done. If there's anything good...

I have made a game
You should check it out http://controllertraining.com/Video_Game_Controller_Training/Download.html It is for training new and non-gamers how to use gamepads. It currently works for Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers for the PC and we are looking to expand it to the next gen controllers and possibly other platforms. And it's only a dollar! Support the project and you could see future expansions such as a 3D dual analog training game! If you have thoughts on this or what new game expansions you'd like to see, contact the designer on the official website! Also, oh yeah I used to look at deviations in my feed. I should start doing that again.
