I thought I had a hobo in mine. Later I found out it was Gaga. I'm not a Gaga fan. Ever since her video "Telephone" I despise her. As for the april fools joke, it's funny that everyone either has Gaga or Twilight as their icon. But I'm not okay that DA changed my signature. That's the worst signature a guy could ever have.

Yeah I know, kind of like a paper mario feel. I was experimenting with new brushes and wasn't planning ahead in dimensions or shapes.

Thank you. When i get around in making a background for Cynder and Spyro, half of it will be volcanic. So I guess this serves as a preview.

Especially I like volcanic eruption and this wonderful ground...


Have you use some stock photos while you have been drawing this picture?

No references were used. I just started drawing random things and it somehow worked. The rock in the foreground, with lava running on it, used to be a side of a huge cliff. The lava ground was supposed to be far below, then I thought it looked better together and bring the perspective closer.

Haven't seen that movie for a long time. My faintest memory of a lava scene was the beginning. Was there a lot of explosions? Anyway thanks, I had not plan for this and things just started happening.

yeah. When I think of that scene, I think of the part where the supervolcano erupts, covering the entire planet in lava.

Did you know Yellowstone is a real life supervolcano and it was scedualed to erupt a few millenia ago? the lake beds are reportedly rising a foot a year from the building pressure. When it finally goes, the lava will be forty feet deep in south Missouri and the ash will blot out the sky in north Mexico. Or that's what they think will happen based on past supervolcanoes.

They've proved that a culture that perfectly matches Atlantis used to exist south of greece before their island became a supervolcano. the erution destroyed the entire island and when the ocean rused int the empty magma chamber, it created a "Caldera", a 350 ft. tsunami that the people of greece saw as the island "swallowed by the sea."

Damn, how'd I get to ranting about atlantis?:confused:

Hehe, wow. You know your stuff. I know a certain person who would love to talk to you. You two can go at it for hours. And don't worry about the Atlantis rant, my mind switches between different subjects too.

Yeah, me and my grandpa will do that. Th conversation will start of about pudding, and by the end of it, we're talking about how he used to make the cameras on the Predator manless spyplanes. (true story) and all of a sudden I'm like, "Wait, how'd we get from pudding to this?"

:spam:Random question:spam:
How long do you think it'll take before states start ceceding because of Obamacare? I think Texas will be first because the governers been talking about it since Obama was elected and it's easiest for us to cecede.

I apologize if your liberal and I say that because there's no difference between republican and democrat anymore, it's conservitives vs. liberals now.

I'm neutral. I don't get into any politics. I obey the law and the government but when it comes to politics I stand aside and let others argue. It's an interesting perspective.

I've actually come to a so called fith corner of the box, watch this video and it'll show you why the arguing is pointless and why there there is only one logical standpoint. This video blew my mind.

I came to that conclusion a long time ago. Just...not...in a simple to understand graph. It's like they always say, it's better safe than sorry.
And goodnight my friend, it's 12:40 A.M. and I have a dental appointment at 8.

Yes, I forced myself to just 1.5 hours. Usually it's four-six hours for a small drawing like this.
Changing subject, maybe I should had Spyro and Cynder flying around so that it qualifies in the fan group?

Maybe the reason people think I'm a girl is because the rainbow apple logo. That was just me showing off what I can do in Photoshop. It didn't occur to me that it could be taken the wrong way.
