RATFather's Profile Picture

Artist | Student | Varied
United States
*** I am not a stick in the mud prude. But there are basic fundamental standards of behavior that we as a society must abide by. I have always said:

"If you see something, know it is wrong, and yet do nothing about it you have in affect condoned the behavior and empowered the activity to continue because of your own lazy complacency."

Therefore, if I see a DA violation - expect it to be reported. ***

Current Residence: Over there.
Favourite genre of music: Almost anything Trance / Rave... yes, I really am 42. Shut up.
Favourite style of art: Digital
Operating System: Win 7 - 64bit
Skin of choice: My wifes. ;)
Personal Quote: "Paranoia is perfect sight... it means always being prepared and never being suprised."
Art hates me…

Oh yes, it certainly does.  It snickers and jeers at me – laughingly pointing a finger at me and screaming "HAAA HAHahahahaha!!!  Look what you CAN'T do!!"

I have tried, and I have tried… and failed repeatedly.  I just can't draw.  For the past two and a half decades I have simply resigned myself to being a voyeur – green with righteous envy and spiteful jealousy at all the wonderfully talented artists that seem to surround me everywhere.  You BASTARDS!!  I want some of your talent DAMMIT!!

But this is a new day.  This is the day I give into the fact that I will never be as good as I want to be, but I will keep trying anyway.  This is the day I place myself up to public ridicule, and forge on anyway.

This is April 30th, 2011.

This is the day I start drawing.


Any submissions I have will be put up sporadically throughout time with no consistency.  My art "attempts" are determined by the fact that my job requires my presence every (yes, EVERY) day, I have an attention span of a squirrel, and I also have a full blown family to pay attention to.  So, if any of you actually like my craptastic attempts at art and are waiting for more, please be patient.  More is coming – I just don't know when.
Thanks, and all comments are welcome.  Just PLEASE make them constructive.  I ALREADY KNOW I SUCK!

- RF
