Art, animation, music and literature. I'll soon be adding short motion book skits as well.

Please feel free to ask in a note if you want to see me create something different!

I'll also be publishing book covers and prospective covers for my novels.

Memorial Day 2016
Your Watch Is Over

"Your service is valued.
Your praise is worth.

And yeah, you sacrificed your time and your life to serve us.

And so from citizen to soldier, I daresay.

Your watch is over.
We have it from here."

For those who don't know, Americans celebrate those who have fallen in service to our country. specifically those who have fought in war, be it foreign or domestic. (As in  the Civil War and Revolutionary War.)
I wrote this poem on a whim, as I have three family members in the military, and know two additional people who have served in the military as well.

Additionally, I have two relatives who are police officers, and one who is or was an EMT. So for me, Memorial day isn't just about the troops who served and sacrificed their lives, but also the citizens who serve our country too. The police officers, firefighters and EMTs who run into danger every day to serve our country. For them, I am thankful too.

Additionally, the sacrifice of our soldiers isn't just extended to life, but also the prison that is PTSD. We mustn't forget them as well, and let's face it. The United States can do a LOT better at caring for their veterans than we do now.

CREDITS:

Soldier is my creation, and is already on the gallery - somewher. XD
Retextured and given a modern helmet, to make him easily recognizable.
Skinned and posed in Blender 2.75 using Makehuman 1.1.0. and the MHx2 Plugin.

The textured flag is also created by me, and I believe I posted it up here as well. Don't remember.

Strong and free.
To infinity and beyond.
Always ready, do or die!

To meet the world with open arms.
Stay our swords and lower our shields.
To make our foes into allies.

It is good to die for one's country.
Carried by our shields and by our fathers.
In a world unchanged.

The wise man works for one's country.
As artists and teachers.
As leaders and heroes.

Man has been lent this life, not given.
It does not last.
Else we shall meet in the next.

We should not falter in this life.
Be open to kindness, that we shall die in peace.
As thus we lived.

Strong and free.
To infinity and beyond.
Always ready, do or die!

A young man's homage to a world unchanged.
That our fathers see unknowing.
Be the change that we desire.

A man's heart unwilling.
To see a world that must be changed.
To fight in his Father’s wars and bleed in far off lands.
To meet the world unseen.

It is good that man is lent this life.
That he can be the change he seeks.
To change a world of war into one of love.
To be the man of peace this world needs.

In service to Peace!

In this world, as the next!
In Service To Peace [Orignal Version]
This is the original version of my newest poem, In Service to Peace.

The other version, which I like very much, has already been translated into Latin, and will be used in a song I'll post on MuseScore when its ready.

Be sure to tell me what you think, as this piece is the original anthem to my nation of Pacem, for Civ V BNW, as well as the sketchup nation I'm building.

Strong and free.
To infinity and beyond.
Always, or die!




To meet with open arms in the world.
In the morning, down the iron, and shields in abundance.
As allies and enemies.




It is good to die for our country.
Carried by our shields.
Changed the world.




A wise man makes his country.
And artists and teachers.
And the princes, and the mighty.




Man has been lent to life, not given.
It will continue.
Otherwise the next.




But in this life is not bent.
Be it benefit us in peace.
And so we live.




Strong and free.
To infinity and beyond.
Always, or die!




The young man's homage to the world they live.
Our fathers knew not to see.
We wish to change.




The heart of man did not come.
See the world must be changed.
The blood of war in the house of his Father, to fight in a land far off.
To do this, the world seems.




Man lent to life is good.
Change can be requested.
Change the world of war.
To do this work for the peaceable man.




In the service of peace




Here, as the next!
In Service To Peace
A poem I wrote for my Sketchup nation called the United Republic of Pacem.
Latin version is coming up tomorrow.

The Latin version will be used in a song I'm writing.

The-Port-of-Riches
Isaac Thomas Riley
Artist | Hobbyist | Film & Animation
United States
From Boston, Massachusetts. Born and raised.
I am a starving artist and lover of love. A decent human being who wants to be loved and adored not by many, but by those few who've chosen to stay.

I was born in April of 1990 to a mixed-race family. My mother is Puerto Rican and my father African-Brit. Me and my brothers are as close as can be. (My baby step-sister has nothing to worry about.)

For most of my life, I designed and created music and literature. Only recently branching out into the joys of 3D animation. Like all youngsters with Asperger's, I thrived in my own elements of knowledge building and hard work. Unlike most youngsters, I was unable to read full sentences till I was nine, and yet I ended up thriving as a writer today. Middle and high school was rough for me. Bullying both social and racial bred resentment in my peers and ultimately friendship in some few who dared explore my mind.

College was even harder as I started to venture out into the world dealing with Schizophrenia and my dual diagnosis of Asperger's and Autism. But yet I continued to thrive. After a short crisis in high school, I vowed to push myself as hard as I can in a positive direction, and with that I have been successful.

In my formative years with 3D animation, I took care of three dogs (Huska, Goyo and Munchie) as well as two cats (Jasper and Alice.) I nearly fell through the cracks by the time I started college, but pulled myself together with help from my few friends. Quiet and philosophic as some might say, I've developed a close relationship with few people - all of whom continue to guide me today.

I've never had a romantic relationship, as I've found myself too immersed in my hobbies to have one, but as of late, since moving to Raleigh North Carolina and having no friends around to assist me and my mother/guardian adjust to life down south, I've found myself seeking someone to hold.

My new challenges are tough ones, but I'm sure that at some point I'll overcome them. I want to go back to school for writing and music theory to have better tools to develop my two greatest interests, and I also want to start having a small social life down here in Raleigh. Maybe also start working to help pay the bills in the house.

But like all challenges, I will overcome, persevere and grow. Hopefully there will be more people to help see me grow down here as there are up north.

So I leave you, my friend, with this. What's in a name?
I = Innovative
S = Smart
A = Accepting
A = Accomplished
C = Caring

T = Talkative
H = Hopeful
O = Outspoken
M = Musician
A = Able
S = Safe

R = Respectful
I = Impressive
L = Loving
E = Explorer
Y = Youthful
