It has been almost a month since I got back from the army and I haven't draw anything! (I was full of my presious dreams about my PeeCee and tablety while was in the army) OH NO! I AM AN ART SLACKER!!! I didn't want to write that "I'm back" untill I have a picture to upload, but heh, I think it'll be fine.
During the past year, I've learned THREE important lessons:
1) (oh my, just how frequently we hear this from everywhere and how little attention we give to it). Appreciate what you have. Even the tiniest things. From hot water to opportunity to casually walk in the shop. Army life is restricted in so many ways... yes, opportunity to visit the shop was like a christmas gift! Care for your friends and family. World isn't a very friendly place, so hold tightly with those people who cares about you and takes you as you are.
2) BOOKS. BOOKS ARE FUN. I used to read alot, but after I got PC... I read only 4-5 books in past 5 years. Then I got in the army. I was lucky: both places where I served had a room with bookshelfs. And because there were no PC or cellphones (they were forbidden due to secrecy stuff), we (some of us) filled the rare free time or sleepless nights on "night watch" routine with reading. I was shocked how many good books one could find on one simple bookshelf! Classical world and russian literature, modern foreign classic, good old sci-fy (so love it!), so many wonders! Nobody called us as an egg-heads because of reading. BOOKS IS THE BEST. Even Rainbow Dash knows it.
3) Ponies are cool. I dropped the series at the beginning of the third season. (and started to move to the dark part of brony fandom. Just look at my gallery!) I found Wedding and Crystall empire episodes to be poorly written and not funny. Then I was talking stupid things like: "the series went downhill, it's bad now" to my friends. I acted so foolish! Obviously, I was fed up with ponies. I started to see flaws where there were none of them. I wanted to see them.
Year of no pony at all cured me!
I'm doing my own little mare-a-thon and just recently watched two-parters I mentioned. No sour feelings and thoughts. it's amazing. I probably watched them with my butt last time.
While I'm still haven't watched the rest of the 3rd and whole 4th seasons, I probably the only person who is glad that 5th season starts to air only in 2015 giving me time to fill the gap :3
Speaking about dark parts of fandoms, I'm gonna clean my DA and I'll try to keep it as much SFW as possible. DA became fetishes archive this days. I don't want to be a part of this. There are plenty of other places that are oriented for adult-based content. I'm not going to delete uploaded pictures (that will be cruel to people who liked them) but rather I'll hide them somewhere in the gallery's foldier.
Hope to deliever some quality art soon! Sincrely, your faithfull brony Don_ko.
PS: Haha, this old journal skin has worm twilight! haha!
