This feels weird... This feels wrong. by Xezansaur
This feels weird... This feels wrong.
Life is full of unexpected events. Good and bad, amazing and frustrating. I felt both in the past months.
After years of struggles, to find peace and balance, not happiness, has always been my intent. I have been able to keep my life together for some time. I even met someone I felt something for, and things worked out, too.
Right when I started thinking I could allow myself to be happy, good ol' casuality hit me. Hard.
The day before you feel great, the day after you feel much worse. You know how it goes, life.
I went through a period of frustration and confusion, so intense they were going to consume me. I was afraid I was going back to a state of depression I had been in a long time ago.
But eventually I didn't. Because negative experiences must not be traumas, but sources of inspiration, a way to understand when and how, in the future, the right thing must be done. If life is always great, how could we appreciate positive things? We wouldn't even identify them as such.
So, with the benefit of hindsight, I know experiences, whatever they are, have always something to teach. They give us the possibility to become better people. I surely know a lot more things than before, about relationships, self-respect and righteousness in many cases.
I now lost my peace. This picture is how I feel.
But I know this is just temporary. Time heals. Bad things don't have to be forgotten, because when they are remembered we have the power to avoid the same mistakes we made before.

Thank you, if you read the description until now. Whether you are someone who has been following me for some time or just a passbyer, enjoy this thoughtful Ultron, whose design is inspired by Opena's "Rage of Ultron" graphic novel. Feel free to share thoughts and comments about anything you like :)

First Photoshop attempt! :la:
I am disappointed.
Those three words must have been pronounced by some other people out there that care about dinosaurs and their look to modern society. 
I admit I had still hope for this film, that gave us (or at least, me) the illusion of a changing. Some day ago, when I read the film has been dubbed for young audiences I understood this was going to be just another animated movie to entertain children. I don't know why I wasn't so scared when I saw the second trailer in which the voices were already there. Maybe I hoped it was just the trailer to attract children and force their parents to watch it.
:iconsmnt2000: 's article, that you can read here ktboundary-smnt2000.blogspot.i… , gives more clues that feed my sadness. I actually feel like someone punched me in the stomach. And now that the movie is drowning in bad reviews, it's a real pity that it could have been a great thing just without those voices. 
Small features can modify drastically the look of anything, even the biggest thing.

This film is even worse than I expected. I thought it was just the voice-acting that ruined the experience, but I was so wrong. Pop music, the facial expressions (mostly eye expressions), the plot itself, the extreme antropomorphism of the characters, the way they act and interact in the envoirnment which is completely unnatural and typical of humans; it deeply disappointed me.
And it's not just that: the film itself is boring and dumb, one of those films in which you get bored and you want to do something else in the middle of the film, when you start thinking at something else and you're looking forward to ending it as soon as possible.
I am so sorry for that. I am so, so sorry.

I was born and I still live in Rome. I draw since I was 7 and just in 2009 I started drawing seriously, making progresses every day. I learned the technique of the shadows during the 2011's summer, thanks to a friend I knew in Dublin. Anyway, I've ever had the passion for prehistoric animals, sci-fi and stuff, so I'm looking for new ways of drawing them better.
P.S. Sorry for possible mistakes


Sono nato e vivo a Roma. Disegno da quando avevo 7 anni, e solo nel 2009 ho cominciato a disegnare seriamente, facendo progressi ogni giorno. Ho imparato la tecnica delle ombre nell'estate 2011 grazie ad un amico che ho conosciuto a Dublino. Comunque ho sempre avuto la passione per gli animali preistorici, la fantascienza e cose del genere, cosė sto cercando nuovi modi per disegnarli meglio.

I've been drawing some stuff this summer, but I moved house and I don't have internet yet, nor I'm able to use the scanner :P
