Any talents, besides drumming?
 
Anyone got any? Share here!

I've been drawing since I will little. I've been doing it erratically. I just sat down and drew this angel for no reason:

Thinking about getting it inked onto my calf or something...

Criticism welcome!

Juggling, sleight of hand, guitar, marimba, stilt-walking, drawing, skateboarding. I think that's it. Is parenting considered a talent?

Nice drawing, BTW. Do you work with charcoal at all? This drawing would look killer in charcoal...

I can put more than 60 goldfish in my mouth at once. Is that a talent?

Comedy (amateur), piano (a bit), golf, and I do some random stuff here and there.

Juggling......... ( lots of drummers juggle... I wonder why..)
Bass.............. ( always actually wanted to be a bass player..wanted to be Jaco actually.. )
Guitar............ ( play it upside down, i.e strung right handed, played lefty, freaks people out )
Piano..............( noodle at it and can fake out a lot of people who think I can play it. )
Cartoons........ ( love doing caricatures of friends )
Paint/art .........( Not much anymore, after I went all 'drummer' )
Impressions...( I'm the Frank Caliendo of my group of buddies.. they enjoy it )

Drawing, painting, animation, and visual art in general was my first love and I went to college for it, where I picked up the drums and promptly proceded to neglect what I was gong to school for. I still do comissions for friends and stuff, but never seem to pick it up for fun...I blame it on 3 years of 6 hours of studio classes daily and endless homework killing all the joy in it for me.

Also, I like to juggle, usually pool balls in a bar...I've ruined many a night by losing balls.

I can do the wave with my eyebrows.

I play bass and suck at guitar.

I can also do the wave with my eyebrows. Freaks people out.
I like doing graphical work, such as the lay-out for flyers, magazines, and making posters and such. I am currently doing the graphics for the magazine of my fraternity. I also consider myself a pretty decent cook, though I recently screwed something up badly. And some people complain about me using too much pepper. But obviously there is no such thing as too much pepper or tabasco.

I sometimes try to draw people in manga-style. Usually it's not so bad. But I am not nearly as good at drawing as eits1986

Oh yeah, and my ex-gf always said that I'm a good kisser.

Almost hendrix style right? But jimi strung upside-down instead of learning to play everything upside down.

I'm in art in school so I've made some nice paintings. I also took a printmaking class last year so I have some very cool looking stuff all made with screen printing. The subject matter for everything I make is pretty much ALWAYS tied to drums. I can do origami (folding paper) pretty well, and naturally as a drummer I can spin drumsticks. No juggling though. As far as talents go I'm not so interesting.

Re: Any talents, besides drumming?
 
My talent is probably juggling diabolo's, balls and clubs. That was my passion before drumming:

This is an old video by the way.

I also drew and painted some in the past, but not so much lately.

Oh, and I do a nice impression of Prince Bernhard (Dutch royalty).

I started skateboarding when I was 8, gave it up but I can still do things. I do mountainboarding, mountainbiking - I ride dirt jumps and skate parks. I'm quite good at art- but enough about me...

ROFLOL........2 funny.

I fake a mean slap bass, I can slap a bass and do an amazing bass solo, so much so I get offers to teach lessons...then I have to tell people I have no idea what I just did :-)

I also enjoy writing, am currently writing a few short stories, often with a comedic twist.

Also am pretty quick witted, when someone makes a verbal faux paus I can usually run with it and get it turned into a laugh fest pretty quickly. Often my humor though is misunderstood.....

Is lifting cars a talent? I did that until my knee surgery....

pushing kids on swings? I give a mean underdog.

I guess Carpentry too, I like building things. Right now I'm building fake doors all through jay norem's house, and I'll put up cameras so we can all enjoy watching him try to get out. ;)

Riding my unicycle?

Can't think of anything else at the moment. Hey, if I can learn to juggle, I can do it while riding my unicycle. Give me a funny paint job and I'm off to the circus!

Re: Any talents, besides drumming?
 
I write songs, entire songs including guitar and bass and vocals (some lyrics). And drums of course. I draw, am pretty talented at it although I practice it way too rarely. I also paint sometimes, yet this is even rarer. I can fake being good at guitar, especially when drunk. Then I am quite incredible (to my ears at least... lol). I am (or have been) an active gamer, and therefore am good at most traditional video games (such as adventure, action, FPS).

Re: Any talents, besides drumming?
 
I think of talents as something worthy of mentioning so I'm going to write down the things that I'm actually good at, I'm pretty proud of myself.

I'm an artist, I can draw pretty well.

I'm an excellent pixel artist, I don't do it much anymore but I can still make things look photo realistic in the tiniest of spaces.

I'm a national competing Kendo player, I stopped this too after something bad happened involving it. Maybe later when life is more scheduled I'll get into it again.

I can play guitar okay, I have a good sense of pitch, I use to play songs on my shinai back in Kendo. I like to figure out chords to make riffs and then eventually songs. My friends who are bunches better than me technically at guitar enjoy the stuff I make, I think that's pretty decent.

I can whistle to really high pitches, and past that I'm also really good at whistling. Like good enough for it to be listened too.

Also, I'm told often that I have talent when it comes to writing, but I don't think so and this post wouldn't show it.

I can get good at anything, I'm pretty proud of that.

I'm pretty good at loafing around......

also maybe acting. I had a scene in walker, texas ranger but the darn scene got cut. and everytime they called me back, i had meetings scheduled at my real job. heck, my red chevy blazer was in the opening scenes of LAX...the hippie dude holding up the "2 tickets to hawaii" sign was standing next to my blazer...i was inside with an actress and we were supposed to be talking to this dude, but that entire scene was cut also....oh, well....... maybe loafing is my best ability besides drumming........

Guitar............ ( play it upside down, i.e strung right handed, played lefty, freaks people out )

I play a right handed guitar strung like a left..


It makes more sense to play that way for me..

i met kris roe from the ataris.. and he explained WHY he does it...

I love it.

I can:


Play bass, clarinet and keyboards (badly)

Sew and embroider (I can sew entire outfits together)

I can bake cakes pretty well. Did last year's Christmas cake.

I own three dogs....they keep me busy!

I'm possibly the best procrastinator that I know of.

I like to think I'm alright at drawing, rendering, spraying, modeling, and all the other stuff that's involved with my Industrial Design degree.

xopethx 11-02-2008 08:30 AM

Re: Any talents, besides drumming?
 
well i used to draw all the time, unfortunately i don't have enough time to sketch like i used to....

i actually drew this when i went to the local collage here, i think it turned out okay. I never really finished it, like most of my artwork.
http://b6.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/0...75803916_l.jpg
When i attended school, it was for a degree in Graphic Design, which i no longer do professionally. In that field, and with the job I had, there was just too much emphasis on speed and volume, and total disregard for quality/creativity. (WOW KINDA LIKE SOME DRUMMERS I KNOW!! HA!)


My main talent is probably analytic thinking/logical sequences....I'm a technology consultant, and most of my job requires quick thinking to resolve PC problems. It's all about the process of elimination and the ability to make a decision when you're on the spot, as to whether or not you're gonna spend 3 hours , or 30 minutes fixing something.

Beyond that, often people tell me I have a very nice speaking voice and should be a radio announcer or something, because of the way I can convey information (my customers don't seem to mind!) I don't know if you can consider that a talent...I always did well in English classes (certainly better than Algebra), and i think that carries over into my normal life.

Well i'm done tootin' my own horn :)

You didn't decide to draw a gun then? I'm surprised at you! :p

I can do A BIT of drawing. Pretty crap though. The problem is that i end up drawing the wrong line then erasing it which leaves a faint line and i do that loads of times and it just looks crap. It never comes out quite as i imagined it would.
Even worse is that i put that i was good at drawing in my personal statement for university. I hope they're not too pissed off or anything. Speaking of which another one of my talents is apparently writing personal statements. In other words bull****ing my way into university rather than doing work.

on the subject of automotive engineering here is some cars i drew:

http://industrialunittolet.co.uk/P1240010.JPG

The "Refari 180"

http://industrialunittolet.co.uk/P1240011.JPG

The "LaChev Chavette"

As i said, pretty dam ****

The other thing i did was build my own computer from parts i sourced at a store. I think it works. I'm using it now.

I can play the guitar and the bass and i'm not too shabby on the recording side either. I can write songs pretty good i'd say too especially when you compare it to my mates band where the vocals copy the guitar line exactly in EVERY song.

I can also do a pretty good accent.

Erm yeah, that's it really.

Re: Any talents, besides drumming?
 
Like many, i used to spend hours doodling. For a while i had a fixation with drawing extravagantly decorative battle swords! (It started after i saw lord of the rings for the first time i think - funny that). Nowadays though, i attempt to pass myself off as a musician - drums, piano, guitar, bass and vocals.

I'm told that i can act. Although as far as i'm concerned, all i can do is quote Blackadder with pinpoint accuracy!

I'm good at art, in general i think, less of the realism, more of the creative, imaginative kind of art.

Photography, the career path im hoping to follow.
Making music besides using drums, electronic, and drone.
Being lazy :)

Post some flipping examples.............

I feel so embarrassed, I am the only one who posted work!

The only way to get better at something is to get criticism and evolve............
