A buddy of mine, :iconpenguin-commando:, got tagged recently, said he'd do a free pencil sketch for the first thirteen people who answered his questions. Wanting to see if I could be one of those guys. You can read all about the parameters on his original journal found below.

Back Home, Bending the RulesBending the rules in a way you can get a free pencil sketch out of, read on.
I'm back home again. San Diego was tons of fun.

The Universal Symbol of me being back home again.
Anyway, :iconbiohazard09: tagged me on this thing, which I'm going to mess with the process of, because I can:
(note to all of you, do try to tag me on memes that involve drawing sexy ninjas somehow).
THE RULES (note - no one is enforcing these. I'm breaking some of them! Ha ha!)
1. You have to post ALL the rules
2. Each person has to share 13 things about themselves 
3. Answer 13 questions asked to you, and invent 13 questions for tagged people to answer 
4. Choose 13 people</strike>
5. You legitimately have to tag 13 people (this is just rule 4 back again. I'm going to handle this differently, see below)
6. You CAN'T say you don't do tags (watch me)
7. Tag-

I'm just writing this to answer questions. I will NOT be tagging people. That's not my thing. This is a one time thing for fun, because I like the guy who's hosting it and his work is pretty awesome. If you like sexy ninja girls give him a watch! His uploads are infrequent, but always a treasure!

13 Questions

1 - What's the furthest you've ever been from home?
Ha! What qualifies as home? I've lived in Colorado and California, but I seldom think of either state as my home. I don't think I can answer this one efficiently.

2 - What's the strangest thing you've ever eaten (that was presented as food)?
Sushi. I'm not a man of wealth, so I've not had the pleasure to eat something more exotic than that.

3 - How many submarines have you been aboard?
I've never been aboard or even seen a Submarine, but living in California I have seen ships and the ocean.

4 - What do you drive, and if you don't, how do you usually get around?
I've yet to actually acquire my license. I can, but there are hoops I have to jump through for it. To answer the question, my mother's Jeep or my father's Elantra.

5 - What is your favorite animal-headed deity?
Now this is a good question! Ah, I've mostly dabbled in Greek Mythology and no animal headed deity is coming to mind from there, so I'll just say Horus, but I don't know much about Egyptian Mythology.

6 - What's the most dangerous wild animal you've encountered?
Hmm, I don't know. I don't go hiking or travel much, so I rarely see animals in real life. I don't think I have an answer.

7 - What's the longest book you've ever read?
Ooh, that would have to be Rick Riordan's House of Hades. I haven't finished that series yet, but I believe the last book is longer. I am reading Dune currently and once I finish that it will be the longest book I've ever read. Stands at 794 pages compared to the odd 550 of HoH. Never read a book with four digits, though.

8 - Have you ever seen a mummy (in person)?
No, I've never had the pleasure. Haven't traveled abroad, you see. Maybe someday.

9 - What's your favorite WW2 fighter plane (or fighter-bomber)?
Well this is awkward. As far as history and learning goes, I prefer WW1 over 2 and as far as transportation vehicles go I prefer Ships over Planes. That being said I suppose the Armstrong Whitworth Scimitar, because it has a cool name and is a biplane. I always liked Biplanes. They remind me of Sly Cooper 3, which I played profusely in my youth.

10 - What's your favorite sport to watch?
Not a fan of sports, but I do like the spirit of Soccer, and Hockey is very fun! The only sport I could ever sit through was baseball, though.

11 - What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Vanilla Bean or Cookie Dough. I'm a simple man.

12 - Favorite Playboy Playmate?
Pamela Horton, but mostly because I know her from Game Grump streams and videos. She seems like a nice lady.

13 - (and most important) - what do you want for your pencil sketch?
More than likely just a pinup. I love Pinups and I'm sure you're familiar with them. ;) But I would like to talk to you more about it.

13 Personal Facts

1. I've never traveled to a foreign nation, but I have a deep interest in other nations politics. 
2. I've a quaint fascination with ships and can name off the different classes of ships from the 18th Century
3. I adore history! 
4. I'm an Anglophile, who's never been to the United Kingdom. XD
5. I've been telling stories since I was 10 years old.
6. I started telling stories after seeing Moon Knight's concept art in Marvel's Ultimate Alliance. Made a character and world around that one image.
7. I've been drawing for only two years.
8. I love Tic Tacs.
9. I've never smoked or took any drugs.
10. I've a fascination with alcohol, but can't drink it on account of it tasting like paint.
11. My favorite story genres are Fantasy and Science Fiction and especially their lovechild Space Fantasy.
12. There is a long list of 80's movies I've never seen, including Alien, Predator, and Terminator.
13. I love Pinups and Pinup culture. Pinups and Figure Drawings are actually my favorite things to draw.

There you Penguin-Commando, hope my answers are to your satisfaction. :)


What? It's Good Smut!
Didn't know if I was gonna finish this one today. Had to work swing shift today and wasn't done with this before my shift started, but I got off at nine and started working on this when I got home. Took me a couple hours to finish, but I'm happy it's done. Not totally in love with her hair, but pretty proud of the figure. Win some lose some. I feel like I'm getting back on track to improving. Think trying to draw Esme is really helping me. Since she's lacking adequate clothing I'm gonna turn on mature content even though nothing's being shown. Just wanna float towards caution.

Daily Heroic 30. 25/9/26

Cheers to trying!

To Leap and Fall by Aesop-Epics
To Leap and Fall
For once while doing my daily heroic I felt daunted. I tried to do something too abstract and too out there for today's daily and I just didn't know how to do any of it. It didn't make me angry or sad it just made me confused and bewildered. I thought I was learning enough to try these new and insane things, but... perhaps I was arrogant. I think I tried to run before I could crawl again. I always leap a little too far and fall, but it's not the fall that matters it's the climb.

Daily Heroic Twenty-Nine. 24/9/16

Cheers to The Fall before The Climb.

Welcome one, welcome all. Welcome skinny, welcome tall. Welcome stout, welcome small. You welcome one, you welcome all! Hello ladies and gentlemen I am R. Lore, storyteller supreme and connoisseur of fine tales. Deviant is my home 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 personal epic the Reclaimers here on deviantART. More over my favorite stories to tell are fantasy epics. As you can see from my literary pieces I delve in that quite often.

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, which I use to update my followers.

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.
