I actually might be able to tolerate the ads and such if I didn’t get infected with something horrible every half hour while on DA. That’s the main reason I don’t go there anymore. :|c
Yeaaah, Deviantart was THE reason I got my adblocker. Without it, I would have left long ago because of those friggin’ popup viruses.
Do any of you have pet concepts that you keep trying to draw/write, that are AWESOME, and you just can’t nail it yet? What kinds of things?
One that I keep revisiting involves rad Clydesdale unicorns that are super manly and fight dragons. Because that sounds awesome. Keeps coming out really stupid when I draw it, but in my head it’s amazing. I’m actually trying it again right now as I type this. X)
EDIT: Yeah, just anything (story, character, environment, etc) that you think COULD be rad, but you just haven’t been able to do it justice yet.
Don't know if you saw that or not, can't remember if I've linked you...
PLEASE TELL ME LUCIUS HAS AWESOME IN HIS FUTURE :'U
Hmm hm hm.
Well, you’ve got Lucius down pretty well, haha. I recently found my first sketchpage from when I was figuring him out (fun fact: the first couple drawings were white guys :OO) and those first character notes went something like 1) football metaphors whenever possible, and 2) animals make him melt.
Lucius definitely will not ever be able to get back into pro ball, and he knows it. He’ll probably stay at BLU until he comes to terms with that, and starts craving something more out of life - a special lady, mostly. Then kids. There will probably be some hilarious date experiences while he gets used to living not-in-a-warzone, but he won’t have to wait too long. His idea lady is strong and can hold her own. He’ll still wear the pants, of course, but she isn’t going to just give in to everything he says. They’ll be the kind of couple who insults each other playfully and banter (and occasionally get in an actual huge fight that ends with Lucius sleeping on the couch but then she makes him bacon in the morning and it’s all good).
They’ll probably have three or four kids, and the first will be a son. And at some point, maybe when the kid is four or so, it will occur to Lucius that he can teach the son football. And he’ll get into youth football coaching because his son’s first peewee football coach will have no idea what he’s doing. And he’ll probably follow his son up through the age groups until he hits high school, at which point he’ll get onto the coaching staff somehow (probably a defensive coordinator, given his own experience). I love the idea of Lucius coaching, because he can live through that first son vicariously and help other kids too. He’d be the super tough coach that you hate as a new freshman, but love by the time that first season is over. He may move on to college coaching in some capacity, but not for a while. And I’d love to imagine at least one of his sons making a name for himself in college football - or perhaps better, he has a daughter that is amazing at soccer or something instead, hahaha. But yes. He’ll end up pretty satisfied with life by the time he’s old, I think. :3
