All my latest crap.

Stuff I like to look at.
Seven years down, who knows how many to go?

I was suffering from some serious delusions of grandeur back in 2008, as I imagined myself being a well-versed veteran of erotic fan art by now. In my hubris, I failed to recognize that it had taken me ten years to be on the feeble level I was back then, and over twenty if we go by my drawing hobby in general and not just cartoon smut. In these old planning files, I see myself dreaming of doing live-action quality sketches by 2012, and even 3D-looking 2D art a year before that. Of course, it's laughable and very, very egotistical when you think about it now.

Nonetheless, I do admire the drive I had back then. I seemed to be telling myself that I feared absolutely nothing, and while that was true to a certain extent, many of my followers quickly noticed that I had my comfort zone in Danny Phantom erotica, and I rarely stepped away from it. The drive, however, had nothing to do with my lack of certainty when it came to drawing outside the Hartman style and that one, I will argue, was very much a real thing. When the bubble of my hubris burst (nemesis), my studies caught up with me and I acquired more friends within the community, it humbled me and to some point even slowed down that drive. There were several moments where I wanted to wind down and take a break, and one came rather quickly during 2009 and 2010 after I burned out from attempting to do that huge DP orgy picture, but in the end the drive always returned. It was not as youthful and idealistic (or as foolish) as it was in the early days, but it kept me purchasing more pencils and paper, and at one point, I even got myself a Wacom tablet. It wasn't the Cintiq I used to blab on and on about over at Wacky World, but it's now an irreplaceable part of my fan art creation process and has paid back its hefty price of 459€ a good while ago.

In a few years I will be hitting thirty years of age, and my youth, as they say, will soon be over. Would I say I regret spending it on the internet, drawing nasty pictures of cartoon characters? No. I only regret that I did not have the possibility, for one reason or another, experience life in all its richness, but specifically by the way of travelling around the world – still, I did manage to visit The United States a couple of times, so I cannot even say I was completely robbed of that either. I am well aware that life isn't over when you enter the next big ten so I do hope to make it out into my 40s as a man who went, saw and didn't necessarily conquer but returned safely home with a few more life experiences richer. Home, where awaiting him is a nice stack of 120g/m³ paper, several different pencils and an Intuos 5L.

(Of course, if you guys think that I'm sounding like some old rocker waxing on about some wisdom he writes on a blog he barely knows to operate, then you might be right. It really is douche chill -inducing and I should just shut up and get back to drawing naked ladies)

I know I should thank you all at this point but I don't know, it'd probably be a bit insincere since there's a chance this gets read by a bunch of people who don't really give a shit, including tracers, and thanking them would be a bit silly. So, instead, I'll end it with the universal motto of a Generation X slacker:

Whatever.

Have some Desiree tits.

Hey guys, can you drop me some points to help me extend this useless Premium membership BS? I mean, this thing allows me to do all sorts of shiny crap and also hold polls that don't really have any effect on what I will be drawing next because I'm a stubborn douchebag. Or, if you're bad enough dude, you can just directly purchase me more time.

Anyway, I appreciate it!

I like drawing pretty cartoon ladies.

*** IMPORTANT ***

I would be very happy if you did not take any of the following text as a "holier-than-thou" statement. I do not wish to imply that I'm "too good" for something, I simply just don't like or care about something and that's all there is to it. Also, the strict nature of the text comes from my frustration of people asking me the same thing over and over and over again. That is bound to irritate almost anyone in the long run.

PLEASE READ THIS FIRST BEFORE SENDING ME NOTES.
I WILL NOT REPLY TO MESSAGES THAT DISREGARD THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES:


- do not request art
- do not ask me to do an art trade
- do not ask me to draw your OCs
- do not ask me to read your fan fic(s)


I will only take these questions account if you can find yourself listed as my friend in the Friends section below.

If you see pics in my gallery that deviate from these rules, they are either old deals made before these guidelines or something I've decided to do on my own will. Call me selfish but I draw mainly for myself as it keeps me motivated.

Commission guidelines and information can be found here: sta.sh/0zze0fytiiy

I welcome critique and suggestions regarding what to draw next, although I will not promise anything. But seriously though, critique is okay, you can be harsh too, I won't start crying over something like that. After all, the purpose of proper critique is to help people improve and become better at what they do.

ALSO, DO NOT:

- trace from my art
- edit my art without mentioning it's edited (see below)
- repost my art as yours

Keep in mind that those stealing my art WILL get caught and I will spread the word to my colleagues about them. I will also write a journal entry where I offer proof of the said delinquency. Repeat offenders will get their names added to my list of blocked deviants.

I do not necessarily mind edits (such as nude edits, colour changes, removing/replacing characters, meshing my art with other people's art) but please, make it clear that it's not 100% my work anymore. If you absolutely feel like editing my art, please include 'Edited by' and your signature. Please note that simply tracing my art and releasing it as your own does not count as an edit.

Even if I draw fan art of BH cartoons, I'm not necessarily very fond of them (but I do like the early 'TFOP' episodes).

Best filler episode ever. TFS did a pretty sweet job utilizing footage from it as well.
