Curse You, Brain!

So I decided I need to make a resin head for this thing, and I’m gonna start by making a sporran, because the stole involves too much material and I want a dry run first with the head design.

And then I was like “I need to sit down and sculpt a head!”

And my brain went “Nope. Don’t think so.”

“But you have to,” I said. “I can’t do this without you, brain.”

“Nope,” said brain. “Not today. Not feeling it.”

“Screw you!” I cried. “I am a REAL ARTIST! That means I power through this crap and don’t get hung up on muses and inspiration and “not feeling it!”

“Yeah, good luck with that,” said the brain, picking up a copy of Craniums Quarterly.

“But I’m a professional! I came to work! I will sit in front of this thing until I make good art!”

“Go ahead, if you don’t mind making total crap and then curling into fetal position,” said brain, thumbing through its magazine. “I’d get the potato chips now, though. You’ll need them later when the weeping passes.”

“You’re my brain!” I shouted, mad with power. “You have to do as I say!”

The brain gave me a long, level look over the top of the magazine. The articles had headlines like Making the Most of Your Ganglia and 37 Secrets the Cortex Loves (But Will Never Tell You!)

“You sure that’s how you want to play it?” it said. “You do know I control the motor functions.”



“Stop hitting yourself…” said brain, turning the page.

“I’m trying!”

And that is why I am not getting art done today.

Yes, well, thanks to you I've got possibly Aztecan possibly were-panther/jaguar tribal people running around in my dreams with glowing blue jaguar marks choosing Shamans with some sort of floating deific light or something.

...Not that I'm really complaining, I love the idea and the main character who isn't the shaman could be fun if I could pin him down long enough to get his name and purpose out of him... Shaman's name is Alu at present, I got that much at least. Maybe I should complain, this means more research on top of what I should already be doing for my other three in progress stories... >_>

And I'm glad I think I can fairly trust you other readers to not run away with my were-jaguar/panther tribe. lol <3 Also, I hate the days you just want to create and get nothing but The Look from your brain. That and the bruises are problematic the next day.
