With all the shit that I struggled with last week I just wanted to share how it is right now. Right now I haven't dabbled into the next strip, nor have I done any character profiles, but I think I'll get to it over the weekend. Week days aren't really my friends 'cause I only get a couple hours to draw. Did some roughs a few days ago for a piece, I might try to finish that later this week. Hopefully I can get to it on Friday. In general I feel good. I have this warm feeling in my heart right now. Like I'm finally on the right track you know? Still watching Ctrl paint and learning from Figure Drawing For All It's Worth, so don't worry about me getting complacent. Exactly a year ago I made the decision to abandon my (pipe) dream of working for Marvel and to go indie. Now I'm finally on the road to being an indie storyteller. It's a really good feeling to know that you're doing something right. This has been a humbling year for me so far and with each new experience I'm reminded I know less than nothing, but I'm so close to being right now after a year of being wrong day in and day out. I feel so good and I haven't felt this good in ages. I'm honestly happy for once in my life. Usually I fake happiness till I make happiness, but it's nice when it's real. Though the acquaintances and friends I've made in the last few months their lives are falling apart. Break ups mostly and other such drama, but it reminds me that hard times will come back for me. That scares me because I'm tired of being sad. I want to be happy like this all the time. I guess that's one aspect of life though huh? Take the good with the bad and take the bad with the good. It feels like when I'm happy people are sad, but when people are happy I'm sad. Crazy kind of irony. It's so strange. The whole time I've been writing this my smile's never fade. It's the kind of content smile you give when things work out in your favor instead of working against you liked you expect them to. 

Because this is becoming a tradition with me here's some mood/credit music


Paint Blending Study by Aesop-Epics
Paint Blending Study
Worksheet courteous of the magnificent Matt Kohr from Ctrl Paint. You can find the video where the worksheet is from here:…

So in studying Ctrl Paint, the biggest problem is quite possibly not using photoshop when learning from his free videos. I use Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 6, which is very limited in its tools and abilities. However, I still try to get something from these videos. So from this I learned how to blend paint my way instead of his. It involved using Sketchbook Pro's Smudge Coarse Round Brush and the Blur tool, which makes SBP lag like a motherfucker. Still I learned quite a lot about blending and just how good SBP can do it. Now I just have to find a way to apply what I've learned. 

Also if you guys want to tell me which blending you like the most or what you think of them in general feel free to, because I really need the help and an extra set of eyes is always awesome. Thank you. :)

Unrelated, can somebody, anybody, throw me a tutorial or something about painting in Gray Scale? Because, every time I try to go out and find some information on it I'm given shit about a Game of Thrones disease. Seriously, one spelled with an E one with an A how hard is it for Google to differentiate that?! Anyway, I would like to learn how to paint and actually try to go out of my comfort zone, which weirdly enough has become drawing, and do something new. Maybe I'm progressing too fast or maybe I can learn how to make my drawings better while learning how to paint. The point is I can't even begin to paint because I don't know what the hell Gray Scale even is, let alone how to paint in it. Now what about the antithesis? "Just paint in color." Well yeah that's always an option, but painting in Gray Scale before painting in color helps you learn form, values, and lighting and GOD KNOWS I need to learn how to do lighting better. Or at all for that matter. So anyone who has a Gray Scale tutorial or knows what is please lend me your aid.  Thanks again.

 Thank you for faving, downloading, commenting, asking questions, and/or partaking in any other form of feedback. I really appreciate it. :)

Just a little badge of pride and happiness.

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:…

Stamp Ideas (free game if you want to make them): 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 have 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 feminist 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.

I love Transistor. I really do. The only thing I love more than Transistor is Red. So this one time I made folder of art that had her in it. After one night it was five pages long. Then a month later I did it again. Only it took two nights and I got all the art from around deviantART of her. That folder is 28 pages thick. Why am I telling you all this? The reason is simple. I don't remember all the work that I favorited, but I really wish I remembered yours! Yours is equals adorable and awesome! Thank you for creating it! :)
