My Artistic Philosophies.

Truth is the essence of all art; to look deeper, beyond physical reality and expose the truth that is woven beneath the surface, its purpose.

It is also the purpose of art to not only tell us the truth of ourselves, but to provide an appreciation of all that we have.

Art has no survival value, but instead is one of those things, like friendship and love, which give value to survival. And so, art should never be turned to hate or despair, but should encourage and show an appreciation for those things which make life worth living.

Thank you for all faves, llamas, comments, critiques, point donations, features and anything else. They are all appreciated, and I'll probably thank you individually, but thought I'd put up a general thank you in the event I should overlook or miss anyone. :)

If I miss a piece of your artwork, that you particularly want more feedback on, comment or note me with a link and I'll get to it as soon as I'm able. :)

2. Are you outgoing or shy?
I have traits of both, I'm an extroverted introvert.... or possibly, an introverted extrovert.

More immediately, Alex and some friends from uni. Looking further into the future, most, if not all, of my online friends.

Mostly, I think... I have my quirks, but I'm fairly easy going and quick with a joke and a smile.

Yes, I would and will. :)

17. Do you think there is life on other planets?

18. Do you still talk to your first crush?
lol Dude, I don't even remember her name.

61. Been suspended/expelled? For what?
Technically, no. In practice, yes. About 3 weeks before the end of my final year of middle school.  For what is a complicated question...

Though in reality it was because my school considered me and my friends (all of whom were expelled within 10 days of me) persistent troublemakers and rule breakers.

To tag a quality deviant: And you’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how many followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart

Eclectic you god damn bear of a man! :hug: You've been someone who really did have an influence on me when we first met. And God its been wonders since you've been around. Lots of hope for you.
