Yeah. I hit rock bottom. I groveled for a while. Lived like a zombie for a while. Felt like shit for a long while. Felt like someone or something ripped out my heart and that I was bereft of love. Now? Now I feel like I have some fire back in my heart. I feel a wildfire growing in my heart and soul. I don't think I've ever felt this good when it comes to my work. I don't feel daunted. I don't feel scared. I feel excited. I feel burned up. Not burned out. 

I got something cooking in the oven that's gonna make me proud. It's gonna be crazy and it's totally gonna fail, but I'm going to make it explode whether or not it fails. And Freedom's Lust will come back. I assure you that. Hot damn! I feel good. I feel strong. Holy shit. I. Feel. STRONG! Now we're gonna have some fun. I'm ready for that comeback. Let's go!

CHEERS! To Strength
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): 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 machinist. Though they don't use heavy machinery, they do 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.

Now here's a peculiar sight: a young woman versed in artistic badassery and the virtue of kindness thanks me for watching her! Me!? A lowly apprentice in the eyes of illustration. Now why would someone so stupendous grace me with a thank you? Boggles the mind, it does. The long short of it, ma'am is that you're incredible at what you do and unique to boot. I'm happy you decided to share your art on this site. Truly, I am the only one to be thankful here. Thank you, for being you. :)

Oh yeah! You're the awesome male photo dude! Ah man, you have no idea how sparse the male photography is on this site! And I mean don't get me wrong I love women, but I need to learn how the male body looks too! Sorry, I'm getting ahead of myself. I grab photos and throw them in a favorites folder, so I can study them at a later time. Your photos were fantastic! A perfect male specimen for studying the human form! Keep up the fabulous stuff!
