apparently, i'm not the only one who believes that there's no such thing as talent. Mark Brooks just posted a rant on dA about it that can be seen here. i've always believed that anybody can do what i do (although, that's not really saying much) that whenever somebody calls me talented, i just brush it off and try to tell them that i've just had more practice than them. that's all there is to it.

and just so this post isn't all serious (i rarely am), here's some fun stuff:

Death Star over San Francisco
(the Imperial Shuttle landing needs work but the rest is amazing)

Cheeks and folks doing karaoke
