Once upon a time, I was trying to impress a girl in highschool. She was an artist and well, I wasn't. I spent more time than I ever had before trying to replicate some random red fox I pulled up on google image search. I think it was around 4-5 hours of horrible hand cramps til I made this fool's masterpiece. The next day at school I showed it to her and she's all "That's really good!" and nothing else was said. What a waste right? I could have used those precious hours to play more video games! But the silver lining is that I made something exponentially better than I'd ever done. I had used the kaioken of art skills. It gave me hope that maybe someday I would be able to do it again.

Friend, you managed to do something most guys these days can't: impress a girl.
Not as fond of this piece as your other more surreal pieces, but I like it all the same.

Haha, I really need to stop being lazy and actually start drawing again. I just haven't had anyone I wanted to impress.

its awesome!
that was sad, but as you said i think that pushed you to break your limits!

This artist has not been scouted yet.
