I finally got it.
On October 11th, 10:51 PM, Sam (AKA "Mass Treble") finally learned how to $#@%ing draw. Up until this point, he had been holding and manipulating the pencil in the wrong way. While sketching in his Intermediate Drawing notebook, he once again drew attention to the blandness of his lines and the lack of expressive acuracy in his figures. Analyzing the work of several professionals and everything he did, epiphany struck him. He tested his new knowledge with a quick sketch of a woman's head that produced a "Wow. That's a really great face, and you did it so fast!" from an onlooker.
After filling the page with similiar rough figure studies in record-breaking time, Sam commented, "I am reborn!"

Wow. Major congratulations, from someone who still hasn't figured it out (and at this rate, won't for about ten more years.)
Now go, kill Rouge! (SaGa Frontier moment. Pay it no mind.)

...Exactly what Sparksol said!
...Except for the SaGa Frontier bit. I haven't played it yet.

...You probably won't, either, unless you're good at finding tricky-to-find games. It wasn't too widespread-ly popular (though better than Unlimited, I'd say.), being seven near-identical quests in one. The stories and bosses were different, that was about it.

raiblu: I am teh proud of you!
Tis really inspiring seeing a fellow artist making a discovery, making progress... one step closer to the final goal! Or... something. o_o Congrats, keep on moving upward, ever upward... never reach a place where you can't get any better.
Iwant to see what you drew. X3

masstreble: The Very Boring Sketchbook.
I've filled about fifteen pages of a sketchbook, and you can really see last night's turning point. However, there isn't anything interesting in it. Just anatomy studies and an occasional object sketch -- it is a very boring sketchbook. I shall call it that, too: The Very Boring Sketchbook.

But what is
the final goal?

masstreble: Ultimate goals,
That's a good question. The best questions are the hardest to answer.
I suppose my ultimate goal is the be the best artist there ever was and ever will be. Some would indicate that I am setting myself up for disapointment, but I say I am merely aiming high.
My secondary goal, and perhaps the more 'real' one, is that I would like to leave a legacy of making people happy, or at least make them think or feel

Yeah, Way to go!

You should have my babies.
And/or display the art someplace for all to gaze at with admiration and/or lust.

masstreble: Unless you have an interest in beginer figure studies...
Like I said, they are really boring figure sketches. I just picked up a little pencil technique that would have been handy a long time ago. It turns out that I still have a very long way to go before I can be called "skilled" and infinitely farther before I am satisfied with myself.
In any case, after our midterm portfolios have passed, I'll be sure to post a few choice things just to show what I'm up to and I'll custom make a thing or two for you guys.
