EDIT: So I'm back from Florida! =D 

I'm pleased to say that the business trip was a success, we completed the project and had room to double check a portion of it :nod: It was definitely interesting, the project required us to work late 2nd shift, meaning that we didn't get done until 1 or even 2 in the morning! But at least we had the whole day to do what we wanted, so I visited the beach =D I took a shot, take a look! Deerfield Beach, FL

Outside of that, hotel was nice, food was nice, and everything went smoothly, except for having one of my flights delayed, which left me with only a 10-minute layover, which thankfully, we made :lol: But now I'm back at home, and back on schedule =) Thanks for reading.

Looks like I'm going to be off Deviantart for a few days, I'm going to Florida :w00t:

How did this happen, so quickly? Well, it was a normal day at the office. And out of the clear blue sky, one of my managers called me and the other new guy into the conference room to "talk". Turns out that there has been a mishap, one of our previous projects the company had traveled out to had not been completed, so they needed to fly out there THIS Saturday and there was a shortage of co-workers who were available. The new worker declined on the grounds of already having plans. So it was all up to me ^^;

So, looks like I'll be in Florida running transportation analyses just north of Miami with one other co-worker. I never made travel arrangements before, and have flown without my family coordinating everything, so I must admit, as I'm leaving in 12 hours, I'm quite nervous. I'm also hoping that I got the skills to conduct a project correctly that I'm flying hundreds of miles to perform. :hmm:

But hey, jets, hotels, and a possible visit to the beach, all when I originally had nothing planned this weekend. Just hope all the arrangements and the work goes over well. 

Well, that's all. Peace :peace:
Have you ever noticed that the littlest things can make the biggest difference on your mood, situation or your whole day?

Like just yesterday, my mood at work was ruined because I simply forgot to bring my lunch. :X Though I'm sure if someone asked why I was so ticked, an excuse like that wouldn't really be mature :lol:

Or a few days back, I went to the convenience store, I had surprised and got complimented by two lovely cashiers who said my voice was deeper than they had expected, and that made my whole day a little less ordinary :XD:


So tell me deviants, what are those little things that make or have made a difference?
Just to give these Thumbshare posts a little more substance, I don't want you to just share your artwork, but tell a story behind it, whether behind-the-scenes information about where you got your idea from or the art technique, or the fictional story behind it involving the characters and/or plot, or whatever you put in your artist's comments. I would appreciate it :thumbsup:

:bulletgreen: ANY media is allowed, including literature =)

Layerless painting which is my first digital birds-eye painting, I was also trying to stray from the imagination a bit and make a believable home/country landscape rather than go the urban or sci-fi route. 

When I Speak(Verse 1)
I can’t recognize mechanized voice
Consider this chitchat jeopardized.
It’s my Ploy
To kill the record-like monotony
Kil-ometers away, you can spot me.
Eyes as
Windows to the soul, voice amplifies it
Hidden by the shy and
Outcasts who deny it.
Disguise it, Like an automated siren.
I’m vio-lent, ‘Cause I shatter the si-lence
Like Google, I search a million topics.
I can persuade ya Take your vote and rock it.
Imagination, I’m the guy who can talk it,
In the style I walk, you can’t even crawl it.
Got more ID in me than 1000 wallets.
My phone number’s gold to be callin’.
I give blasts like a megaphone honk
One more notch up the volume will leave you on the ground, * sprawl you, Speak!
Chorus
(*) When I speak…
I’ll make sure you hear…
When I speak…
I break the ice without fear…
When I speak…
Smooth and clear…
I’ll take…
The wheel…
And steer.

(Verse 2)
I’ll tak

You know how some of the best ideas come to you when you least expect it? This idea--complete with the music and everything, came to me when I was working in a fast-paced student cafeteria. It sucked, because of course by washing dishes and serving customers you don't have a time to get out a pen and paper and write, but miraculously I was able to retain the most important parts until the end of the shift. And then when I was a cashier I began writing my next work on receipts :XD:



Share yours! =)
(Verse 1)
I can’t recognize mechanized voice
Consider this chitchat jeopardized.
It’s my Ploy
To kill the record-like monotony
Kil-ometers away, you can spot me.

(Verse 2)
I’ll take the wheel and steer
Four-wheel-drive and automatic gear…
Shift. To the melody to your ears.
With. A new class, Smooth Jazz…
Slick. And  with Razzle-Dazz
A mix this special, only Presto.
The realest thing available at the auction.
Breakin’ barriers that warn with caution.
Make my own rules, at my desk like a boss, and
Expressin’ with the markers, express it with the chalk.
A spectrum of the colors in my everyday talk.
In this world I’m sensing a dismal signal
Want my two cents? I’ll give *ya a nickel! Speak!

*Chorus*
(Bridge)
I want to hear a voice…
From you…
Don’t write for now,
I just need someone to talk to
(x2)

(Verse 3)
Forget…hand to eye I got heart to mouth coordination!
Trade the values and beliefs just like we’re bordered nations.
‘Cause I think before I speak.
My sec-rets
Play hide-seek inside me!
Eye contact, check
Body language, check
No promises in debt.
And lack of trust ain’t a threat.
So drop your chronicles, I’ll catchem with a net
Ya better get set, cause we can edit the next Gazette!
I’m a Treasure Chest
Hidden deep in burial,
I’m a framed front display like a Curio.
Mysterious, enigmatic even call me Sur-re-al
The sweet side’s inside like an Oreo.
Clean and smooth with a Speed like Keanu
I can see a bright future, with me and you
Fireworks, more-light-ning than Pi-kachu
When I got that vision just want you to *see it too! Speak!

*Chorus*
When I Speak
Well, I was currently writing a thought-provoking rap on a much deeper subject, but, for the third time, I've gotten stuck on it and it'll take a while to finish. But then again, I came across this wonder from 2011, still a favorite, and figured I could use something happier, and just more upbeat for the gallery =) 

If you haven't noticed, I refer to myself as Presto, which is my rap/stagename :nod:

And the asterisk (*) symbolizes when the chorus actually begins. If this was to be produced, you'd hear the singing of the chorus just before I finish each verse, more precisely, so that when I say "Speak" it matches the chorus' first line ;)

Hey, what's up?


GENERAL:
About me: I am Black/African-American and Christian.
I am 21 years old.
My art mostly consists of digital but I do some traditional art, literature and rap as well. My main genres of specialty are sci-fi, architecture/landscape and anthro. I do some conceptual works or people on the side as well.

BELIEFS:
I have a strong passion for art, so a lot of it I do for enjoyment, but additionally, I believe that art should be a medium of escape from the stressful work-schedules, decision-making, and drama which is real life. With that said, I realize that art is one of the only venues to free your imagination like a dream. Plus, it always helps to add a little humor which is why I will bring out my inner child with anthro and draw bears stepping onto a dance floor or a crocodile about to be arrested. I promise that most of the art I will provide is imagery that you're not going to see anywhere else. (Sci-Fi and Landscape included)

To me, it's rather disappointing most people don't go this direction and illustrate mainstream pop culture fanart, anime, still life, realism, or simple people posing in some type of natural environment. These are genres where if you don't see one of the subjects nearly everyday in real life, you've seen a large percentage of artists already do it.
My art wants to be art that takes you new places, puts you in the front seat of new perspective, and plays around with possibilty.

Regardless of what I disapproved of earlier, I still believe it's important to do what's in your heart, making sure you express yourself just as long as you don't intentionally hurt/offend anyone in the process and as long as you're taking care of responsibility. (Keep those grades up!)

So if fanart/anime makes you happy and you're a hobbyist like me, have fun. =)

If you got any questions about me, my beliefs, or my art, or just wanna talk-- feel free to note me PLEASE! I appreciate every watcher and comment!

MY BLOG:
-My blog is dedicated to one of my favorite venues of expression, written art, music and performance, RAPPING. Here you will find tutorials that can strengthen your poetic/rhyming and rapping capabilities, editorials about the subjects of hip-hop rap, links to music and quality artists...and more.
Are you:
- Curious or Interested in rapping or the music form?

Do you know how much there is to learn about rap regarding technique, innovation, interpretation, delivery, and just plain writing and rhyming?

Check out my blog Prestoverse below! And read a post or two. You very well might like it and develop a new appreciation/understanding of rap and some of the "unheard-of" artists out there.
