I have been looking at a lot of work from Paul Ainsworth and trying to pick up on some of the details in his work. I used one of my favorite characters from one of my favorite movies to try and experiment with it. I will be trying some of the more detailed aspects of the style like vector cross-hatching next. "Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!"

This Judge was just a tad too timid for his position as the "enforcer of the law". And, when a non-Judge acquaintance of his tried to make fun of him by giving him an astounding "boo!", he blew a hole in his head due to sheer surprise. Lesson-learned: never ever bully someone, his/her weakness might be his "killer combo". Bullies are the lamest. STOP BULLYING.
