This is gonna sound really dumb, especially because I've been here for five years, but I got 111 page views in a single day. Wow... I'm. I'm speechless. A month ago the average was 40, two months before that it was 20, two months before that it was 10. For the entire year of 2014 it was fucking 5! How did I go from having 5 pageviews on one day to 111? XD 

That's fucking insanity. I don't know what it's from and I don't know why, but it's a big number for me. I'm closing in on 10,000 views as well! I usually don't count pageviews, because they don't really matter, but when little milestones like this happen you just gotta take notice! 

This came at a really cool time too! I've been feeling more and more lately that I don't belong anywhere, but it's super cool to get picked up by this! Man, I never thought deviantart would be the place to make me feel better after some particularly hard days. 

I've been gesture drawing and it seems to be working, so I'm trying again and I'm searching for that fire in my belly. Even though it's really hard to fight without a corner man, I'm still trying. I know I'm not trying hard enough, but I'll try. 

Here's to 10,000 and coming back strong!
Cheers from 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 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): I am R. Lore, because it belongs to us all.

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.

I'm always searching for beautiful photos that capture life exquisitely. Photos that I could take, break down, and reconstruct through my own artwork. You took a miraculous shot that exemplifies life very well! Thank you for making it! Keep up the great work there, friend. :)

Thanks for the fav :salute:

Ah yes I liked your piece, but that should be obvious. Your shading, attention to detail, and color choice are incredibly sharp! It's a very good piece. Thank you for making it. :)

On this kind of drawing if you get the skin right you have half of the work done because the eye will ignore a lot of mistakes in the rest. And to get the skin right the colour palette is key. The rest you get it from practice.

Oh, because of contrast. The eyes are tuned more towards the warmer vibrant color of her skin than the subdued color of her hair or the light color of her shirt. Holy shit that's rad! Damn, thanks for telling me that!

Oh yeah! I remember that. That was from a long time ago. I really liked the expressive nature of the photo, it's really great for learning expressions and a sublime study tool. Thank you heartily for making. Unfortunately I do not have an instagram, but thank you for the invite. :)
