When Did This All Become So Easy? by Aesop-Epics When Did This All Become So Easy? :iconaesop-epics:Aesop-Epics 1 0


When I was nine and ten I made super hero stories for marvel. I gave up on that idea at 15 for reasons that are way too long to explain! But after giving up on my dreams for marvel superheroes left a chip on my shoulder. I've slowly been coming back to them these last couple years, but I haven't wanted to tell a super hero story in at least 7 years. They just bore me. Or rather... they did. Yesterday I started thinking about superheroes again. I've always wanted to try them because they were my first, they're special to me. And for the first time in what feels like a decade I'm having legitimate fun writing superheroes again. This is very emboldening. Because the last two webcomics I tried I didn't enjoy, but I'm telling stories that I'm falling in love with, and I feel like I can succeed. So, in 2019 you're gonna see a WHOLE LOT more of me! Why 2019? Prep time! Gonna spend the next couple years building. While I won't be making comics this year or next, you will get some pinups. I've been doing a lot of value studies over on Instagram, and I know I'm getting stronger. Soon everything's gonna fall into place. I'm ready! I'm ready for it all, for the rise, and the fall! I'm ready to win the day. I'm ready to find my people. I'm ready to find my place. So, here we go again!


R. Lore

Welcome one, welcome all. Welcome skinny, welcome tall. Welcome stout, welcome small. You welcome one, you welcome all! Hello ladies and gentlemen I am Robert the Lore, storyteller supreme and connoisseur of fine tales. This little page is my abode and what's mine is yours, so come open up a book and read aloud 'cause this is your town, where everyone knows your name.

Little 'bout myself: I love telling stories and hope to one day post my many opuses here on Deviant ART. More over my favorite stories to tell are fantasy and space fantasy epics. As you can see from my literary pieces I delve in that quite often. I also have a deep, ardent love for Pinups, Pinup Culture, Cheesecake, and Beefcake. Tasteful smut of all kinds really. As you can see from my gallery Smut is my specialty.

Conclusion: This has been a friendly broadcast from your neighborhood Loremen. A pleasant night to one and all!

The Narrators Theme Song

For those interested I'm also on Twitter, where I update my followers and retweet artwork I like.

I'm also on Instagram, where I upload my warm ups, study pieces, and rough sketches.

Random Quotes I think of (if you wanna make them into stamps go ahead): Just who the hell do you think I am?! I'm Robert the Lore! And mine are the stories that will shine on in the hearts of man!

Romans 8:25=Story of my life

I'm not into all the hippity-hoppity groovey-movey jazzy-wazzy flashy-classy show that is Social Media. I'm more of deviant man, if I do say so myself.

Yes you're entitled to your opinion, no you don't have to shove it down my throat.

I put the story above everything else. Me, the audience we're all along for the ride, but wherever that ride takes us we'll arrive in style.

If all we get is all we give then I'd give it all to see my stories told.

I have a lot to say about Catharsis. I will say all I have to in my comics, my stories. My Stories.

A Storyteller's job is to Entertain, Explain, and Enlighten.

You may have the right to freedom of speech, but you don't have the right to invoke hatred and anger with that freedom. Civility is the key to sanity.

Equality begins when we all agree that no one race or gender is better than the other.

I'm a humanist because I don't know if I should believe in feminism anymore.

In a perfect world Hannah Reid and Sydney Sierota have weekly pillow fights.... This is not a perfect world.

Storytelling is an ancient tradition that works gloriously with new thinking! But new thinking doesn't have to mean original. New thinking should mean innovating on what's already here.

When learning to draw stand on the shoulders of giants, but remember their way is only the match your way is the fire.

Hate Breeds Hate. Love Breeds Love.

If you don't ever believe in yourself than no one will.

I do things my way. I'm kind of a stubborn prick like that.

Stories, like art, are subjective. There are stories you like and stories you don't like, but no story is bad and likewise no story is good. I think it's impossible to make a bad story, because in the end a story will always make you feel something, whether that's intense hatred or intense love.

You don't have to write a story to tell it. There are many different ways to tell a story.

What really drives me is isn't faith in myself, but the belief that I will get there, so long as I keep moving forward and never stop trying. I believe in the hope of my future. That's my motivation. Hope and the future.

I can tell you a story in 5 seconds flat. With a setting and characters, one in 3 seconds. A Scarlet haired temptress, banquet, and the right to light things on fire is my collateral.

It doesn't matter how good you are comparatively. It only matters how good you are individually

I specialize in From Nobody To Nightmare and Badasses

Growing up and dreaming of being a storyteller, Patreon helped me sleep at night, gave me hope for the morning, and something to work towards in the afternoon.

My head is in noble, wealthy, idealistic, clouds, but my heels are dug deep in destitute, weary, pessimistic mud.

When it comes to drawing, it's not about what I have or haven't done. It's about what I'll do next and how much I've grown from what I did last.

Art is just a series of questions and how you answer those questions is what makes you who you are. The only real difference between you and Picasso, Da Vinci, and Michelangelo is perception. You can learn how to do things their way, but why would you? They already did things their way. You should do things your way. That's what makes you who you are. Your answers to the questions are your way.

I like to learn how other people draw to strengthen my way. That's just part of who I am. Understanding how others fight dragons helps me understand how to fight my own demons. In more flighty terms.

Home is in the heart not on the soil.

I'm just trying to be what I'm not: A Good Man.

I could never be a hero, but I can tell a hero's story and maybe in that I'll find a little... warmth

Fuck the stars and the sun, I'll be the moon! Doesn't shine every night, but when it does it's twice as bright!

You only start losing when you stop fighting.

Love without attachment is fire without oxygen.

Your real opponent isn't in the corner. It's on the wall ticking away waiting apathetically to ring the bell. Uncaring for your struggle or your life. Your real enemy is time. And time doesn't give a single fuck about you.

Stories transcend all the pettiness of humanity. Slavery, Poverty, Empires. All are forgotten by stories, because stories are the one thing humans have made that defeats our mortal enemy: time. Stories are embedded as deeply into people as the DNA your parents gave. That's how we live on in hearts and minds, through our stories.

I don't believe in tomorrow, because if today is all that exists then I'll do everything to make today matter.

Differentiate the work from the worker

Life is but a dream and death an alarm clock

I'm the villain of the story, but all I want is to be the hero.

I think freedom's more important than equality. Because, if you're free you can still be equal, but if you're forced to be equal then you're not really free. That's not to say equality isn't important. It should be a society's moral obligation to make its people equal, but never at the cost of the society's freedom of expression.

Charm: Out of This World
Wisdom: So Low The Devil Looks At It and Says, Daaamn!

An artist's style is more than just how the lineart forms. It's the conscious mistakes and methodical decisions made after years of refinement. An artist's style is simply a groove that they are comfortable with. This groove can, and more often than not, will change.

An artist is, at their heart, a utilitarian. They use tools constantly. Every principle of design, every foundation skill, every keyboard shortcut, every pencil, pen, stylus, and marker is a tool. An artist knows the perfect tool for the job.

That's the thing about stories, and I guess life too, you don't plan out the accidents they just kind of happen and sometimes they make you really happy.

When I'm strong enough I'll stop standing on hero's shoulders and start standing shoulder to shoulder with them. And when people stand on my shoulders I'll teach them to stand shoulder to shoulder with me, just like the Heroes before me.

You know that feeling of "could have done this better"? Yeah, that doesn't go away when you acquire strength, huh? Welp, shit.

There are things you want to hold on to that will always leave your side. There are things you want desperately to get rid of, but they will never leave you. Life is all about being OK, with what stays and with what goes. What holds on to you and what departs from you.

You don't only live once. You live every time you make a memory or do something completely insane and surreal. However, you'll only ever die once. It matters how many times you've lived. It won't matter how many times you die.

(Not mine, but I like it) The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb

The difference between $15 and 15 million dollars, to me, is six zeroes. Wealth and class is much more than just money. It's an attitude.

Virtues aren't something you keep. They're something you chase.

People aren't black and white. They're a variation of the color brown. Obsidian is black. Marshmallows are white. You're telling me, that a man is the color of obsidian and that a girl is the color of a marshmallow? If a man is the color of obsidian I think he has a disease and if a girl is the color of a marshmallow I think she's dead. Just my thoughts. Don't let me stop you from seeing color where there is none.

Skin tone to me just an aesthetic. It's either a desirable quality or an undesirable quality, depending on the person. But, I don't really see people as people until I know them. I think of people as art. Some pieces are good and decent, some are beautiful beyond compare, but I never find an art piece I don't like. Everyone's some kind of desirable quality. Some have good cheekbones, some luscious hair, some a strong jaw, a few have sparkling eyes. It's easy for me to see the good in people this way. When I know them, that's when they're people and it's much harder to judge people. People are complex.

I think, in this day and age, we spend too much time thinking what's sexist, what's racist, what's offensive, what we can't do, what we shouldn't do and too little time thinking of what we should do and what's fun. Somebody will hate what you love and somebody will twist your words around to make you look the villain or the fool, why appease them? I'm not saying, "Don't be civil or decorous". I'm not saying, "Don't let your conversations be filled with comity". I am saying, "Get your mind off the minutiae." Life is too short to worry about if you're going to hurt someone or not. Just have fun and if your fun hurts someone apologize, but let them know that you never meant it mean spirited. If you did mean to hurt someone through your fun, that's wrong and you're a dick.

Races like Black and White, Native American and Latino are less about skin color and more about culture. The color of your skin can't change you, but culture can. What you're told you can and can't be, what your parents expect of you, what your neighborhood expects of you, what your brothers and sisters expect of you that's culture and that changes you. For better or worse. However, there's nothing in this world that says, "You MUST be apart of their culture." That is always a choice you make. For better or worse.

You can think I'm racist. You can think I'm sexist. I implore you to villify me, demonize me! I know who I am and I know what I've done. Make my name blasphemy, go ahead! It won't change who I am. People don't have to like me to like what I've done or how I've done it.

I gentrify tradition to make something innovative that's old and new at the same time.

There is a very thin, almost non-existent, line between vaunting the human form and abusing the human form. Vaunting the human form is artistic nudity, abusing it is porn.

You ever wonder what Icarus felt like when his wings burnt up and he fell into the ocean? I don't. Normally, a person doesn't wonder about things they already know.

If your life is a living document do not fear the antithesis to it. It will strengthen your resolve.

Any Creative Endeavor is mental mountain climbing. There's The Fall Before The Climb, The Climb Itself, Right Before Summit, and The Peak. After The Peak you fall down the other side of the mountain and then you climb the next one, and there's always a next one. I don't know what The Peak looks like or what Right Before Summit feels like, but I know The Fall Before The Climb and The Climb Itself. I know The Fall feels like your high school sweet heart is filing divorce papers and that everything is dark and dreary and everything is bad and getting worse and that you just want to quit and turn away. That it's hard to get back up and start climbing and that it takes a while to really establish a rhythm with climbing. I know you meet nice people while climbing and sometimes they became your inspiration to keep climbing. I know The Climb itself is grueling and heart aching and that you'll wanna take a rest, and it's OK to take a rest. Every mountain has a little hole you can crawl into when things get too tough, but it's gonna be up to you and you alone to crawl out of your cave. Then you start climbing again. I've never seen The Peak, so I don't know what Right Before Summit feels like, but I imagine it's the scariest and greatest feeling in the world. Maybe when I do know what it feels like I'll comeback and amend this, but for now I'm still climbing.

There's a lot of talk about privilege, but no one ever goes over what privilege really is. To me privilege is the ability to just chill in your home and just turn on netflix to watch a show you've been thinking about, to open up that book that's been on your list forever, to play a video game that's been sitting on your shelf for a while, to watch a movie all your friends are talking about or even to just hang out with your friends. Privilege is being able to just let go and relax with no worries. Some people in the world aren't allowed to just chill for a hot minute. There are bills to pay, mouths to feed. Surviving is more important than thriving in happiness. At the end of the day you have to ask yourself, "Do I have the ability to just take a couple hours and relax?" If you do you're privileged, and you just checked that.

The pivotal difference between a good man and a bad man is that a good man tries his damnedest to do the right thing, and when he's wrong he owns up to it and tries to get right. A bad man never believes he was wrong in the first place and there is nothing you or I can say or do to change the infallible truth that he is always right. A bad man will not accept he is wrong. Ever.

We have to remind every man, woman, and especially children that storytelling isn't selfishly shoehorning in the world what you want to see. Storytelling is about sharing the world you come from and what makes it special to you.

Fanning the flames of hate makes you just as bad as those who begot the fire.

For a storyteller, your insanity shall breed ingenuity and the method to your madness will be the medium with which you tell your story.

I believe people should be who they are, without bothering about what they are. At the end of the day, it will never matter what you are, but who you choose to be.

I'm not colored blind. I see just fine. I see varying shades of beige and brown. Now you, my friend, you sound color blind. Talking about black, white, red, and yellow. People aren't colors. A person is a human being and they deserve to earn your respect on that merit alone. Honor thy neighbor by thinking of them as your brother and not your enemy.

I hate drawing, and writings pretty boring, but creating? Storytelling? There's not greater high than that in this world. I love making stuff up as I go along. That's what makes me happy. That's why I do this shit.

It's a disease you know. Creating. Once you get bit by the bug, never goes away. It might fade for a couple days or weeks, and that might be its affects dulling, but it always come back. No matter how far you go. It's like almost like nicotine. Forty years could pass and you'd still feel the call to just make something that didn't exist before.

If You Found A Door IV by madlynx

   I really appreciate it!

Apologies for getting to this so late, I've been on and off Deviant Art a lot lately. I really like how inventive this piece was! I don't even know where you found a door frame, but I'm glad you did! Something about having a door frame in nature is surreal, and the chiaroscuro color scheme compliments this dreamlike vision. Josee Lanue is ever the phenomenal model in this piece. I always adore her expressions and her anatomy is something scholars look to and say, "This is the prime example of exquisite anatomy! Truly exemplary!"I could go on and on, but you know I just- I just really love this piece. It might be my favorite from you. Great job here. Truly well done. Keep it up! :)

Thanks for adding some of my images to your favorites.

I love getting feedback.  It makes the void seem a bit smaller.

Add me to your watchlist if you'd like to be notified as I add more.

Was honestly contemplating to add your piece to my collection, but I rationalized it as, "can never have too many good references". Upon a second look of it I find that it has a really powerful silhouette with a lot of interesting anatomical benchmarks. The foreshortening on her right leg is very dramatic, a sharp angle that gives a lot of dimension to the piece. Her pained and anguished expression is especially interesting to me. Sends the mood of the piece in a very different direction, I like it. This is a very good piece. Well done. Keep up the good work. :)
