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.
