Happy Thanksgiving

This was a Turkey.
I'm making a note here:
Its hard to overwork my
stomach tractions.
Happy Thanksgiving.
We'll eat what me must,
because we can.
For the good of our mothers
who have slaved over the bread.
But theres no sense laughing
over every pisstake
we just keep on drinking
till we run out of hate
and the feuding gets done
theres an uncle to be shunned
and the turkey thats still
fúcking dry.
Im not even vasted
I'm being so neglected now
Even though you took my heart
and stuffed me.
And tore me to pieces
and chewed every piece along with wine.
As it filled you up I cried
That was my left wing you ate.
Now these yams and taters
make a beautiful side
now we're out of pecan
open the pumpkin pie
I'm still mad I got cooked
think of all the drinks you took
All the while im still
fúcking dry.
Go ahead and eat me.
Its you're fault I'm scratching up your throat
I might go down better
with cranberry juice
maybe some water.
That was a joke. Ha Ha. You

Obviously I have not arted like I said I would. Whoops.

That Slate PC I got, I gave it to my brother, who actually is an artist. He paints and shit. Good for him. I bought a Surface Pro though, those things are nice. I do math on it.

Why do I do math you might ask? Oh I forgot to tell you. I'm a budding Mechanical Engineer now.

I realize I don't come on here anymore. I feel that its because I am no longer depressed. Oh yeah I didn't tell you that either. I don't THINK I did. Yeah, I was hardcore depressed for a number of years. Like, probably a decade. Flipping shit. I think the art was less about creativity than it was a coping mechanism. I'm not that creative. Clearly. I draw a lot of the same shit over.

Anyway over the course of some undisclosed time after I drew Sketch Quest I started trying to figure out what to do with my life and Engineering ticked a lot of boxes. Blame Tony Stark, but that job is going to be cool no matter what I do. 3D Printing and Virtual interfaces, LeapMotion controllers and Digitizing pens means high tech is going to be my office. Fine by me.

With a plan in mind I also started looking at Me. I hated myself (as you do, when you're depressed). Over the last couple years though I've met one or two really special people that helped me uncover some truths about myself, help me pin down what I want out of life, etc. - last year I lost about 80lbs. I could surely stand to lose another 20lbs but that was a hell of an accomplishment. I'd like to thank the Academy, and the elliptical.

Looking back on who I was before I started this transition, its almost night and day. As a singleton you'd expect me to be miserable and lonely, but no. Because you learn to legit love yourself at some point. When you go to bed you realize life is going just fine. Besides it is so not worth it to just agree to some of these crazy requests I have gotten for flings just for the sake of it. Especially that one. She is cray. Like, spongebob crazy. No. I will surely know when something right comes along. No rush, I've plenty to do with my time. Obviously, you come across those couple people where it seems like "damn, if only we had met 5 years ago", but that was the entire point I made to myself going into this: that I was only going to run into that sentiment more and more if I was constantly in a rut. The thing is too, this isn't one of those peaks of elation (or I HOPE its not). I feel careful not to call it that, but I've felt like this for about a year now, and been improving this way for over 2 years, with a gradual progression upward. As if I'm really out of it, and it's not just a phase thats been dicking me around. I feel Happy.

For the art, I have since I last checked in and even before that, kept myself so busy my mind and body haven't wandered there. I play video games sure, but I don't sit and watch TV and doodle or anything. I work full time, I school full time, and when I'm not doing those things I keep my brain busy on other shit or I help friends out with their own problems (which has always been fun, to a point). When/if I ever get to a nice stable point where I have a ton of spare time, I would like to crapshoot for making a cosplay of one of the robot designs in a couple years though. For the most part though, the drawing just doesn't seem as necessary to me as it used to. I might fire off a doodle every once in a while when I'm super bored or really rocking out to a particular song, but its just more of the same, and not worth submission.

So as it turns out, the pen is no longer for doodling, its for taking notes and doing hardcore math. If you thought Calculus was a scary word, I'm looking at you and thinking "Awe that's cute."

I'm going to sign off now before I promise I will submit more art "real soon" etc, when I know I won't. -Over

Hi! Thanks for the :+fav: on my Left 4 Dead Steam skin! Feel free to take a look at my other Steam skins!
JamesMorrow07 Featured By Owner May 31, 2009  Student General Artist
Thanks for the :+favs: and the watch! I also like your concept of your mechs. I can prolly do one of 'em in NES style. =3

And I must assume you must've watched Lambchop when you were young. Shit, that brings back memories. Love it!

Lambchop is da bomb!
Overheal1987 Featured By Owner May 31, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey cool! That NES style wud be awesome. Your icon reminds me of a Metabot - Love it. I think we both had the same influence though: Beetleborgs ;)
JamesMorrow07 Featured By Owner May 31, 2009  Student General Artist
Beetleborgs!? Crap! I forgot about that, too. I only watched it maybe a few times. It kinda does remind of a Metabot. I've only watched that show maybe once.

If you read the description for deviations Geovonni Maximus - 01 & 02, as well as the other characters, you'll get the idea where my inspiration comes from. But not only from that, but from other Deviants here.

But yes, the NES thing I'll definitely tackle!

And on a completely unrelated note, make a steampunk version of your knight armour. It's currently powered by small super powerful reactors. I wanna see what it looks like with a low yield, large size power source like steam.
Overheal1987 Featured By Owner May 27, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
That challenge, I'll accept.
Sairus Featured By Owner May 17, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
By the by... :iconthereal-oct:

Enter it.
Overheal1987 Featured By Owner May 18, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
That really appears targeted at the fantasy genre but ill mull it over.
Sairus Featured By Owner May 18, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Nah, I've been dissecting the rules with the guys who are running it. Mech suits, robots and everything else you draw are acceptable. And since the outline of The Real is so delberately vague you can mold it into as much of a sci-fi a story as you want.
I plan on using a robot and a mech piloted by an android on my team if I decide to enter~ XD

(Speaking of which, the android that falls in love with her soon-to-be-trashed-mech story is being stolen back off you XD)
Overheal1987 Featured By Owner May 18, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
lol take it, seeing how I never made it to Steel Nation :P

I still really ought to finish my ES entry at some stage I mean I did in fact pencil many pages on it.

Totally sticking to Black and White this time. Trying to keep up color is fucking ridiculous. >_<

Knight will have to be included I suppose. My other 2 chars are high up in the air. Contemplating my stick man bob and making a third character from scratch.
