Apple Splat by idontrunntoofast
Apple Splat
Another "Splat" Paint for you. Took about 25-30 Minutes didn't come out perfect but... meh.

I highly suggest you guys try out "splat painting" it is a lot of fun. The rules are made up by me so feel free to adjust them to your needs.
"Splat Paint" rules
entire painting is to be done in about thirty minutes (Don't stress it's no big deal if you go over a bit it's just a general guideline)
you are to use One layer. (this is flexible for instance you can have the background color or sketch on another layer but all the painting is to take place on one layer)
Your only tool is the brush.. use any size, color or shape brush but you are only to use the brush which means No erasing! of course erasing is sorta useless on single layer paints so this rule is kinda mute anyhow.. if you make mistakes you paint right over it :-)
HAVE FUN! this is the main and only important rule you can break all the rules except this one. if you are having fun you are doing it right ;-)

Buck. by idontrunntoofast
Well my older quarter horse Buck died Last night.
He was getting on in age had some serious digestive problems and the best that the Vets could do was prescribe some pain meds. Nothing could be done.

Have you ever had a really weird dream?

Wombo's Unbirthday by idontrunntoofast
Wombo's Unbirthday
It was my friend :iconwomboman666:'s  birthday yesterday.. but I was at work and didn't have time to do anything. so today I decided to do some "unbirthday" splat art for him.

If you are wondering what what exactly I call splat art... 

It is stuff that I do all on one layer, with no erasing, using one brush tool in less than a half an hour.

Try it sometime It is a lot of fun :-)

Another example

1 layer
Wacom capture tablet

Well As you probably know I haven't been on DA very much this past month.
There is a very good reason, and it's not just that I am a lazy slob who can't keep promises.... OK there is more than one reason...
anyhow a few months ago I had accepted a job that would be closer to home (only about 1/2 hour)
But just a few weeks ago I was offered another job in Oregon. A career changing job that I couldn't turn down.
It will probably keep me pretty busy for the next few months. I will be working with a team designing an automated production factory floor, including many prefabbed machines, ABB Robotics, and linear movement..
So I am pretty excited for that. It means I will spend more time in Oregon. But that's OK with me... I like Oregon

While I was in Oregon I hung out with my Cousins during my off time. See one of my cousins got married last week and we wanted to spend some time together before he got completely tied down. We went shooting, sending thousands of rounds down range, we blew up some random stuff with tannerite. we set up the wedding area in his front lawn and I attended his wedding. It all turned out great and I wish them both the best, (tho I expect him to still get time to go snowboarding with me this next season) otherwise I will be forced to drastic measures. :-D
another weird thing happened last week after the wedding... I was staying in Klamath Falls at a little hotel called "The Days Inn"
well one morning... at like 2:30 am I woke to hear this loud banging at my door. BANG. BANG. BANG. "LET ME IN, LET ME IN, LET ME IN" BANG BANG BANG BANG. "LET ME IN, OR I'M GONNA BREAK THIS DOOR DOWN" BANG BANG BANG BANG. "I'M GONNA KILL YOU!" BANG BANG BANG BANG....
Well whoever it was had my attention but needless to say I wasn't going to let him in... I pulled my Springfield xd .40 out from under my pillow and walked over to the window to get a peek at whoever this was... at that exact moment he decided to start throwing his entire body at the door in a attempt to break it down all the while yelling some incoherent babble. I could see that he wasn't going to be able to bust the door down even for all his efforts and I wondered why he didn't just break through the window. Instead of give him the chance to consider that option I went and called the local police... who apparently had already gotten calls from several of the hotel staff and occupants and were on their way. A few minutes later The police pulled up and the crazy man had changed tactics from trying to break down my door to jumping on the hood of a Toyota camry parked outside of my room. After just a small struggle they pulled him off the car and took him into custody.
I was required to fill out a bunch of statements and forms, even though I had no idea who this guy was or what he wanted. (I was later told that he was dosed up on several powerful drugs and was just as he appeared "crazy")
when It was all over I was forced to report to work with only a few hours of sleep... ruined my day..
Oh did I mention he left a bunch of blood all over my door and my car? yea he was bleeding everywhere... freaking creep.

So what did I cover... New awesome job, Shooting with cousins, wedding, crazy man trying to kill me... well that was pretty much my last month...
I hope to get the time to start doing my art again soon, I have so many half finished paintings that I want to get done for you guys... I just need to set aside some time to do it.
Anyhow, stay cool everyone!

Hey man! Haven't heard from you in a bit, just thought I'd drop in and say hi. Hope things are going well!
idontrunntoofast Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014
Hi Ickle! I know I haven't been around here for a while. and I know It is a bit of a habit of mine... and I'll probably write a journal pretty soon here so everyone knows whats going on but I think you deserve a explanation for my absence... You know how I accepted that job in Oregon a while back? well it has been pretty great so far, the guys I am working with are awesome to be around and we get along pretty well. I am cranking out some pretty heavy hours there (and getting a pretty ridiculously large paycheck btw. :D ) and we are keeping (just barely) on schedule. We expect to be done here near the end of February / early march.
But work isn't what Has been taking all my time. I have decided to permanently move to Oregon. I have been working hard to get my stuff moved out of my place in California over the past month and a half and selling off or giving away any of the stuff I can't really take with me. I have sold my horses (all but the one I gave to my sister). I have found a permanent residence driving distance from klamath falls (where my cousins live) and have been working on the paperwork and red tape to move in.
So as you can imagine I have been pretty busy with that lately, tho it doesn't really excuse my absence over this last couple of months, which I have been feeling pretty crummy about. I desperately want to get back online and continue talking with all my friends here and do some art as well.. I just need to get the time to do it. You know even with all the great guys that I work with, it can get pretty lonely when you are living alone in a hotel for months on end. 
Things are starting to slow down now and as soon as I am fully moved in I think I will have a lot more time to start trolling this site far more often. In fact (not including a bunch of unfinished crap I have on my computer) I have some new stuff I intend to upload at some point this this week (mostly stuff that I did on work hours) sketches, a full 3d rendered image I built on my work computer etc. 
Anyway... I sorta got carried away with this long explanation n stuff... I hope you just skipped to the end because I don't know how much sense any of it made to you (it's like nearly 3:00 am here and I am tired as all get-out so I may be just typing incoherent babble) :shrug:

so how are things going with you? what have you been up to after your job ended? I hope you aren't sore at me for being absent for so long :( though If you are I can't really blame you... I've done this a few times...

Btw I checked my inbox and I have like nearly 6000 messages... so if you have journals / deviations that you wanted me to see in there... you had best just send them to me.... Cuz that is a pile I am not willing to sort through. :roll:
IckleVoldiePoo Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014
Oh wow, you have been busy! Don't worry, life happens and you've been doing important things; I'm not cross about it, I just wanted to say hi. =)

I'm glad work has been going (and paying!) well. Good luck with moving! I know it's a pain during the process, but hopefully it'll be over soon and it's good that you found a place you want to be. Living closer to your cousin sounds nice too since you'll get to see him more. I look forward to seeing what you post if you get time this week!
(I feel lame writing just a few sentences after you gave me a few paragraphs, but unless you want more "yaaaaaay!" I don't know what else to add. :XD:)

Things aren't great on my end, but there's not muck I can do about a lot of them, so I just have to deal with it until things improve. I got diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel , so that's "fun". I did go to the UK for two weeks with a friend after my job ended and I'm working on building a computer now, but other than that it's mostly been job hunting. There wasn't anything in particular I wanted you to see since I haven't been able to draw much, but I did write a journal before the UK trip explaining a few things. If you've got time and feel like reading it, go ahead, but I was in a rather poor mood when I wrote it so I don't exactly recommend it unless you REALLY want more whiney detail about my prolonged bad mood:…

Anyways, glad to hear things are going pretty well for you, and again, good luck with the rest of your mood! Glad we were able to catch up a bit. =)
