I definitely hear more than one effects box and several different mikes in that 2 Cellos bit...

...and WAY too much autotune in the other.

Hmn, always so many drawings of Castela looking angry. And here I thought she was getting it under control?

Containment is not control.

Anger, fury, and wrath must be either released or converted. Learning to contain until it is safe to release one’s anger is but the first step, and it is one of the easiest methods. The canyon serves this cathartic purpose.
Learning to harness and use one’s anger in a productive manner comes next - this is essentially being a Sith, which has advantages and disadvantages.
Next comes the art of conversion - many people don’t understand a vast majority of their feelings and this generates anger and frustration. Introspectively looking past the superficial wrath and finding the unknown emotion causing it, contemplating it, coming to terms with it and understanding it, and then acting upon it rather than the anger will often dissipate the anger entirely and let it be replaced by the emotion or emotions at the core of their internal conflict - this is one of the most difficult methods of self-control as it requires a calm and open mind, capable of seeing past the red mist of anger that so effectively fogs the mind.
Finally, there comes... flow. Letting anger flow through oneself as naturally as joy or sadness. Allowing oneself to feel it, to acknowledge it, to respect it and oneself, then letting it pass without holding onto it, allowing yourself to turn your attention to whatever caused the anger without having to fight it at all. This, above all, is most difficult to achieve because it requires a level of self-awareness, self-understanding, and self-respect that very few attain.

Relapses happen. People who can achieve that final state will still often be overwhelmed to the extent that they regress to a previous manner of anger management and self-control... sometimes even to the point that they lose control entirely... and she is still young, hormonal, and only just beginning to learn the “harness” and “conversion” methods. Aside from that, she also has plenty of traumatic history, and is most definitely an extremely passionate individual. What she feels, she feels very strongly, no matter what it may be.

She will have good days... and she will have not good days. Let us hope she never has “One Bad Day.”

So is this working on her control?

Of course, it is...

She merely shattered it, rather than completely obliterating it... That's self-control at its finest, if you ask me... :mrgreen:

Better to punch a canyon wall or even just a regular wall than to cave someone’s face in.

Also, understand that she lives in a “world of cardboard.”

Also also, one must understand the truly murderous wrath seething inside her at all times - I imagine she’s never truly processed and gotten over the fact that she was created to be a weapon. She has blackthorn wisdom but she is still young and immature. I doubt she has let go of that, or the anger about Atsali’s (and her own, kinda) parents.

Few people truly shoulder that burden. Fewer still remain sane and non-criminal.

The number one thing, besides Castela being all curvy/strong and everything, that I support, is that Paul has named/labeled this eBay entry with more than a simple 'Castela'.

Being a Human Bean and having an opinion on damn near everything, I like when each drawing has a more descriptive name.

Just thought I'd mention...

Sure as shit makes archiving easier.

Even if it’s just something like, uh, well like with mine - instead of just “Brandi”, perhaps “Brandi Nude 1”.

Doesn’t have to be artsy fartsy.

Yes it does! I think my "Atsali" collecting is approaching 30 items...

Google search for 'Night Moves' by Bob Seger...

I was a little too tall
Could've used a few pounds
Tight pants points hardly reknown
She was a black haired beauty with big dark eyes
And points all her own sitting way up high
Way up firm and high

Out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy
Out in the back seat of my '60 Chevy
Workin' on mysteries without any clues
Workin' on our night moves
Trying' to make some front page drive-in news
Workin' on our night moves in the summertime
In the sweet summertime

We weren't in love oh no far from it
We weren't searching for some pie in the sky summit
We were just young and restless and bored
Living by the sword
And we'd steal away every chance we could
To the backroom, the alley, the trusty woods
I used her she used me
But neither one cared
We were getting our share

Workin' on our night moves
Trying to lose the awkward teenage blues
Workin' on out night moves
In the summertime
And oh the wonder
Felt the lightning
And we waited on the thunder
Waited on the thunder

I woke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962
Ain't it funny how the night moves
When you just don't seem to have as much to lose
Strange how the night moves
With autumn closing in
