The Den of the Eskimo Hunters
The Den of the Eskimo Hunters
The stench of nacho cheese permeated the air. Within the small “studio” – in actuality a messy basement room – there lay a Wal-Mart Classic F90 guitar, complete with five tuning pegs (one was subject to a fatal bowling accident) and a pick haphazardly lodged between three of the strings. The beige acrylic paint on the body was chipping off slowly, the process having been sped up by the guitarist’s bored scratching.
In a ten degree angle was the microphone stand from its base, having been abused by constant thrashing, the operative end lodged into the top. There were once little slots in the top where the microphone was supposed to fit, but they had been worn down by incorrect usage, according to the Yamaha Warranty Manual. The sound of it had become “befizzled” by constant abuse of feedback. The cage over the “felty-recordy part” had been broken in a spot, not due to any sort of abuse, just a mark of its terribl

could see eternity
I could see eternity in those sunglasses.
I drifted in and out of paying attention to my surroundings as I sat in that room. The chair was soft, a pillowy soft material that absorbs the weight perfectly. But there’s something under the soft material, something in the inside of the chair that had a way of uncomfortably pressing against the coccyx when one first sat down. Constant neurotic adjusting was needed to achieve comfort.
It was a rather large room, and there were quite a few people here. There were some people there who looked very smart, very able. A girl grabbed my attention as one of them. I could tell by the way they sat, the way they composed themselves – these people liked being correct. Too much, altogether. They hadn’t so much as given a thought to the people around them. But they followed all the rules, which made them perfect. Perhaps I judge too much.
Another person caught my eye.  Really, he caught everyone’s eye at one point or another,

La Lluvia
La Lluvia
I watched with a serene half-mindedness as the painted Grisaille clouds ran past overhead, scarcely visible while laid on the black canvas of the abyss. The speed of clouds was always faster during a storm, something that could hold my interest in and of itself about the fantastic phenomenon. Out of the corner of my eye I glimpsed every so often an uncommon firefly which would make itself known briefly by lighting itself, and as soon as my attention was caught, the blaze blinked out and left the small hill as soon as it had arrived. My attention diverted from the limitless skies, I gazed at the hill which receded very gently up and into the trees which stood into the sky, gently wavering in the soft nocturnal rain. Eyes of shadow-water, eyes of well-water, eyes of dream-water. Everywhere.
The trees stood firmly and commanded the midground. Their endless branches and soft ubiquitous leaves splayed a beautiful silhouette against the dark blue sky. It looked like one of n

This I Believe
This I Believe
Grand was the spectacle to be beheld here. Here stood a line of genuine rosewood instruments with beautiful resonance, complemented by pristine metallophones, stately timpani, bass drums angled at the perfect angle toward the imaginary audience. Fifteen of us stood at attention behind our instruments, mallets confidently held toward the ground from our waist, bodies fully upright, each one of us a sage of an art form practiced since antiquity. The light struck the cymbals at an angle that was both attractive and slightly distracting, but we dare not move, as there was no overwhelming reason to move.
Behind us stood one hundred more musicians, each one professional-caliber, each one not yet out of college. The drums floated off the ground in a perfectly level stationary line, hoisted by the backs of the commanding presence of the battery. Their faces were stoic and confident, their bodies pulled upward so perfectly as to create a uniform sense of awesome tallness. The sli

Two weeks later...

brynalin and I are now a couple. You can blame her for me paying any attention to this site. Perhaps not. But I mention this because for Halloween, we're going trick-or-treating and customing as real-life, humanoid, dramatized versions of Ursula from the Little Mermaid and Scar from Lion King (respectively). Is that not the best IT IS THE BEST. However, it would be even more the best if she'd accepted my original idea: us going as Billy Mays. Both of us.

I'm workin' on some things.

Cid (FFVII) full pose: pencilwork done. Not sure what to do from here. I might digitally ink it if I ever feel like it. I don't think inking it in real life would work. But I might try after I scan it; why not?

Scar (Lion King) characterization: in planning. It probably won't ever be a real work of art, just some schemes and ideas and crude little sketches.
