Greener

The grass is much greener so fresh and untouched You glance at the memory when yours was as such Considering landscapes around you are spent You run to the Summer of your discontent The grass becomes greener the longer you stare A blossom much brighter than all in your care They yearned for your nourishment; you gave despair And thus without petals they cannot compare The grass growing greener while your flowers thirst, One for each time you have dived in headfirst, For you they each promised a life more attained But why save those souls when there's more to be gained? The grass is much greener the further you fall While browning

My Bio
I doodled a lot in my time, generally depicting stickman facing cataclysms and monsters, or just monstrous cataclysms, of various sorts. Since the age of about 12ish I've been writing poetry, stories and music in an amateur way.

26 years after the day I arrived on Earth I was due to produce the seventh LlamaLAN poster, but this time I wanted to do it properly and try my hand at a style of art I generally respected. I bought one of these "teach yourself Manga!!! :-O!" books and came across the submissions from Dr.Cloud in the list of credits whose work was easily miles ahead of the rest of the book's contents in its detail colour and imagination.

From his website of works, I found a link to his gallery on deviantArt.

So anyway, I've been attempting to draw properly since 2006 and, with each project I eventually tackle, trying to learn off the people in my watch list who have a far greater talent than me. Thanks to you all, you skillful people you.

Some of my written works end up here as well as I came across anything, or write new material, and consider it good/ready enough for your eyes and sanity.

I would really really love a hundred more llama badges... if you haven't worked out why, see some of my gallery. ;)

It's been yonks since my last submission because it's been yonks since I put hand to paper! In the creative sense. Mostly this is because I've become more and more ambitious with my use of Maya, the very comprehensive 3D modelling and animating application.  I get these ideas in my head on how dramatic and insane I want my scenes to play out, and I just HAVE. TO. MAKE. Again, it's all about LlamaLAN.  The vids I do are for the LAN events, played during and at the conclusion of said events, for the entertainment of our punters and to propel the storyline ever forwards.  I enjoy what I do, else they would just never happen. I've also had a he

A 'Hello again', before evaporating.

Well let's see.  It's been a while but that's because I haven't done anything worth shouting about.  Until YESTERDAY! The latest one, Llamatopia, really is a rushed bit of work.  I'm not massively happy about all of the colouring (some of it was quite lazy) but I just needed to get it done.  Besides, it's more a bit of work I've used to practice on and refresh a few techniques before tackling the next one.  Which will actually be SOON.  And in my world, soon means maybe two months. If you're reminded of a certain dystopian movie about a certain guy who forgot to take a certain pill one morning, then my work here is done. I've finally done

LLAMAGEDDON: New ideas with this old fascination

LLAMAGEDDON: New ideas with this old fascination

We love utter destruction, when it's not real of course.  I guess there's an intrinsic relationship between terror and intrigue when it concerns some fictional characters, or in some fictional setup that concerns the things we love in real life.  For example, Independence Day was sold because something about our nature is captivated with the idea of our own devastation, and I wonder if the real drive behind it is the question of what happens next. Anyway, LlamaLAN 13 is coming!  Our next LAN event is April 16th 2010 - see more details and sign up here: http://www.llamalan.co.uk/ ;) This theme is the best yet.  We knew we were going down thi
