It's a Drug by DanoGambler
It's a Drug
Anyone of my friends who sees this, please -DON'T WORRY-

I hesitated quite a lot about if I should post this or not, but it's my first speedy with Krita, so I decided to share this VENT-image.
It's not like I actually have the same situation as shown on this picture. It's but a way for me to deal with inner struggles and emotions. It's been several years now that I've come home in the evening, sit down and just sink right down into sadness. Not every evening but rather frequently. 
 I guess it's all about being alone. I love being alone. At times I can even become grumpy and short tempered if I can't get some personal space with some precious peace and quiet. And in the same time, I wouldn't love anything more than to just have someone close to share it with.
I would never say anything bad about the persons that I've shared passed relationships with (except perhaps one or so..) cause they have all been fantastic and lovable persons... but It has always ended up in so much sadness. And I don't even know what the cause might be - or worse, if I AM the cause..
 I often seek refuge in lonelyness. It's somewhat addicting. But in the same time, as I turn on the computer in the evening, drink some tea and hear the rain on the window.. I should be at peace. But here's always this gnawing restlessness that makes me just wanna go to bed and make the time pass without me.
I have felt more happiness than I've felt in a long long time lately. Much because of dear friends of mine..
There's a pattern though, that I'm now trying to figgure out how to break. It's the typical "Ups and downs" pattern. The higher the peak, the deeper he valley. It's all chemical. It's a drug.

I don't regret posting this though. It feels somewhat like a weight has been removed. You make what you want of this. Just don't feel sorry or worry about me.

Love you all. 
Kitchen Knife by DanoGambler
Kitchen Knife
I got a request from a couple of friends to make another kitchenknife. They wanted it broad and thin so I made my best. They - just like me - are Viking/Medieval fair-people, selling all kinds of leather crafts. The back yard of their camp often seves as a kitchen and chill area, with everything tidy and historical so that tourists can come in without getting plastic bags and cans as soon as they pass the facade.
 The long and short is that they wabted a kitchen knife that would work for theese kind of environments, so I made them this.

Handforged it from an old rusty sled blade.

The handle is made of antler and a piece of brass.
Stolen from :iconvduplex:

1. Pick a character you've created.
2. Fill in the questions/statements as if you were that character.
3. Tag at least four people to do this meme.

Your character: Kahán Griverion. (General of one of the biggest Naronian legions and Military Tribune of Berfall. Droran )
1. What is your name?

2. Do you know why you were named that?
Hmmm.. Is this question of importance? I have many matters at hand and very little time for mere smalltalk. Hm? Imperative you say? Is this a request from the capital? Well then.. The generals will have to wait a moment..
My name was given to me by my fater. It means "The Eternal" in our native tongue.. Not overly fond of it, as it has given me quite a lot of unwanted preassure.. He's a rather... keen person, my father.

3. Single or taken?
I'm a married man, if that's what you're asking.

4. Have any abilities or powers?
Military progress doesn't come from "powers" or "magic". I haven't been bested with a sword since the last hit my mentor managed to make, I freed Vanerheim from it's northern invasion and kept my place as General and military Tribune for several years. Everything made possible by me and my best men and the soldiers they lead. No "Powers" needed.

5. Stop being a Mary Sue!
Do you even know who I am? I shouldn't have to ask you to watch your tone.

6. What's your eye colour?
Violet. It's always been a mystery to me..

7. How about hair colour?
*rises the scales above one of his eyes* Well.. Black? Does scales count?

8. Have you any family members?
My wife and daughters are back home in Berfall, our capital. My father is there too, probably keeping an eye on his own.

9. Oh, how about pets?
Not fitted for military facilities. Exept the horses of course. But we don't have any in this particular one.

10. That's cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don't like...?
I don't like to keep people waiting for me.. *glares*

11. Do you have any activities/hobbies you like to do?
Look around. *shows the late evening scene of the Naronian military facility with it's effective puls and ever going motion.* I can't do much more. When I'm home, I'm usually stuck in plans for future campains, or attending the cenate or leading a trial... When thinking about it, being home probably means more "work" than being out here. 

12. Have you hurt anyone in any way before?
You have to, if you are to live in this world. If you think life is just, then you're very lost my friend. We wouldn't have come this far without hurting people. You can't stop a war without hurting people. Our relm is so much bigger than any persons suffering. That's the hard truth.

13. Ever... Killed someone?
I'm sorry, are you bovine?! This is the military. I'm a general. You can guess as much as you like.

14. What kind of animal are you?
I'm a Nightbloom Salamander.

15. Name your worst weakness.
They are many, but I know them well so I mostly have no problem avoiding them.

16. Do you look up to anyone at all?
Most of them are gone. There are some men and women I admire. Most of them walk their own path.

17. Are you straight, gay or bisexual?
Is this a joke? In any case, my answer is that I follow the path that our creator has given us. Same sex relations are not an option.

18. Do you go to school?
Not for many years. I go to the school of war every morning in stead.

19. Ever want to marry and have kids one day?
I already told you about My wife and daughters, didn't I?

20. Do you have fan girls/fan boys?
I'm sorry, I don't understand the question.

21. What are you most afraid of?
Can't think of anything right now. What are we all afraid of? Pain? Shame? Loss?

22. What do you usually wear? 
I don't "usually" wear one specific garb. I have a set of armor for any occasion and situation. During the evenings, I wear an ordinary qualtaan. Silk, mostly.

23. What's one food that tempts you?
It's interesting how pork-poridge out in the field taste better than roasted rare beef with grilled beats in the city...

24. How many friends do you have?
I honestly don't really have time for friends. I have my contacts in the cities and the cenate and my generals, whom I respect. But the more you have, the more you have to loose.

25. What's your favorite place?
My backyard at home, in my gardens. I can actually sit there for hours..

24. Am I annoying you?
Funny you'd ask. Yes, yes you are.

25. Well, it's not over!
Then get it over with! I sure have one more letter to wright this evening.

26. What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)?
I'm Nobilitas. My family is one of the oldets in the realm. It's hard to hit higher than that. 

27. What are your thoughts on pie?
Are you sent to test my patience? The top generals of the realm are waiting for me and you ask me a bout pie?

28. Favorite drink?
Wine. Are we done?

29. Are you interested in anyone?

30. That was a stupid question...

32. Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean? 
*closes his eyes for a moment. Takes a deep breath* Both. 

33. What's your type?

34. Any fetishes?
*closes his eyes again. Obviously fightingt he urge to send this idiot to Kôrak*

35. Seme or uke?
Understandable language, please.

36. Camping or indoors?
I'm going to my tent, the guards will see you out! *walks away quickly*

I tag: (no preassure)

DanoGambler's Profile Picture
Joel Wennerholm
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Name: Joel Wennerholm
Age: 24

Lighthearted, with a relaxed philosophy of life. Mostly easy to talk with but sometimes a bit off (In his own world). Loves to sing. Writes alot but mostly in Swedish (Still finds English a bit difficult from time to time, so please have patience)

For me, the closeness of the nature, the woods and the lakes is very important. I find serenity and joy in the surrounding beauty and my friends. You could say that I'm a little bit of a hobbit. I'm trying to feel and enjoy life in my every breath.

Apperance: Almost like a chubby Viking, with long hair, a brown beard, blue eyes and with sword, axe and shield close at hand.

Greatest Joy: The time I spend with my friends, my craft, and my pencils. A good wine, rum, wiskey, ale and of course mead often makes a nice evening even nicer^^

Greatest Fear: The Industrialism.

Current state: Working withing the Healthcare with elders, continuing the evergoing work with my comic Droran and preparing a Role-play Game after the comic.

Why do you look like a viking? :3
Andracus Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2015
Hey, would you by chance like to do some sort of collaboration or art trade with me? School's out and i got some more free time. And don't know exactly what to do with my creative energy right now. Plus, our interests match. I'd also be happy to just do a request for you if you don't have the time or the enthusiasm for a joined work... feel free to choose a way or just to decline for now. In that case, I'll just go on and bother the other people I'm watching :) What do you think?
