Or Kill Me / Re: You're not conscious
« on: April 26, 2017, 09:04:55 am »
In this text God is not God, Love is not Love and Christ is not Christ, but at the same time they are. Do NOT take it literally.

For anyone who is REALLY interested in this kind of stuff that has been going on in this thread, Gornahoor MIGHT be for you.

"What is important to realize is that whether one comes by way of a “Semitic sense of sin”, or whether one realizes that the “I” is a fake I, one begins by being able to “do” almost nothing, other than reject one’s false states of being." 
http://www.gornahoor.net/?p=6514


Jordan B. Peterson's book Maps of Meaning is strongly recommended too. It can be read for free. 

"I had no idea where my search would lead me. I came over the course of a decade and a half to understand the meanings of many things that had been entirely hidden from me – things that I had cast away, stupidly, as of little worth. I came to realize that ideologies had a narrative structure – that they were stories, in a word – and that the emotional stability of individuals depended upon the integrity of their stories. I came to realize that stories had a religious substructure (or, to put it another way, that well-constructed stories had a nature so compelling that they gathered religious behaviors and attitudes around them, as a matter of course). I understood, finally, that the world that stories describe is not the objective world, but the world of value – and that it is in this world that we live, first and foremost.

This all may appear as something far removed from the original problem, but that is true only in appearance. I have learned what it is that makes the tyrant, and how attractive it can be to participate in that process. I have come to understand what it is that our stories protect us from, and why we will do anything to maintain their stability. I now realize how it can be that our religious mythologies are true, and why that truth places a virtually intolerable burden of responsibility on the individual."

nothing obvious going on

just spinning my wheels. 

nothing’s really happening

But I’m feeling like it’s all the same-- just grey, empty space in my head.

There it is! Your "problem".

This isn't about your job, dad of anything outside yourself, so you really can't find the solution from anywhere.
The problem is that you don't really have a problem and what you are starting to feel is actually emptiness, freedom from problems.

Now you have to be fast and find a new problem or you might end up calm!
Hurry up!

And don't forget to feel anxious for not knowing everything. It's important!
Learn from other people. Almost everybody has amazing problems everywhere, you can just pick the best ones.
They are all tested on humans.

And basically, you should do something stupid, because that usually helps people to get into problems.
I don't know, like drink stuff and vomit on something.

I liked the first one. It's so true and shit.  :lulz:

I don't like the artwork!
I get the contrast thing you did with it, but it's not my thing. Not this time at least.

These are good.

(I agree w/ P3Nt about the emboss... if a photoshop user can instantly pick out which filter you've used, your work's polish degrades.)


Like, really good. <---- Said as some-one who eventually will be an Art Director at a video game company (or similar).

Your linework is fairly solid (maybe needs a little work.. do you know about line-work exercises?), the character designs and overall visual feel are very tight (it all looks like it's from "the same world"), and the bold colors help sell the content....

Nice, hope to see more.

Thank you, thank you.  :)

My linework can be very sloppy sometimes, even ugly, because I do this to let out some steam every once in a while. You know, mental steam.
So the pencils may roam the paper in a very high speed and if I'm angry or something I USE TOO MUCH FORCE. And it shows of course, but it's part of this all.

Sometimes I write too, but for certain things, only the drawing "helps".

The colors I have been using in these ones are basic office high-lighters and a few mark-everythings.
I think I'll add more colors in the future. Brighter green and different red. At least. :)

This is a extra thing. It's older, no colors but it has the same theme going on in it.

I thought that I would color it during this week. With the same colors that I have used with the present ones.

Here is one thingie from my Epic of the Dragon Slayer (working title). It's about a being who is a dragon/chaos born, his travels and adventures, wars with the dragon/chaos forces and finally his victory over the dragon/Chaos. The twist is that then he becomes the Chaos (aka Eris) and the play starts again.
Original? Maybe not, but it has been fun so far. 8)

I will not post this often from now on btw, so everybody can relax.

Let's forget the version you meant. The before emboss version. Because I don't have it! :eek:
So I did this one instead. The colors are different (very bright) and so on but it does not have the embossing. :p

photoshop good. emboss effect bad. pls to post clean version?

Also :mittens: reminds me of Spider Jerusalem but in god form!

I hear you. I'm not very good at photoshopping to tell the truth. I just click different functions/tools/filters until the thing I'm working on looks like something I like.  :lol:

I might post a cleaner version. Perhaps during the weekend.

And yeah it has similarities with Jerusalem character.

This character has a long (for me at least) history and it's first prototype was created years before I had even heard of discordianism. And I was introduced to Spider Jerusalem here at PD.

The main inspiration came from X Men's Plasma Wraiths and button eyed dolls.
The original drawings/paintings were little bit more depressing and teen-angst fueled.
Now it has all kinds of different influences from different things and about two (?) years ago it transformed into Eris/Chaos Avatar.
Evolution evolution.

Here is a Plasma Wraith:



And a button eye doll:

Thank you all for your kind words! :)
 
Here is one more I just did. It took about TEN HOURS. Or eleven. It's a photo-upload, not a scanned one, because it's way too big thing to scan right now.
So the colors ARE better IRL. Trust me. Much better.
