All my latest crap.

Favourites

Stuff I like to look at.
* I've collaborated with the talented :iconjavidluffy: and :iconmikesouthmoor: on a meme picture that should be appearing on dA very soon. The Maddie vector I did a while ago is going to be used as a stock image in it.

* I will begin working on my commissions soon! Please see my earlier journal entry for list of commissioners. As for those that wish to commission me, you'll unfortunately have to wait a bit longer, possibly until August/September or even later. However, as I explained in the afore-mentioned journal entry, I will be doing a lot more commissions than before during the next year-and-a-half.

* I've now dropped MLP:FIM off my list of cartoons I follow. I've pretty much lost all interest in the show and I don't have much faith for its future. Reading up on some of the upcoming episodes, especially the S4 finale, basically affirmed my fears of Hasbro's meddling just getting worse and worse. I may check up on the episodes I've missed later on and most likely I'll be rewatching the earlier seasons in the future but right now, the show is pretty much dead for me. Nevertheless, it was a great ride for the first two seasons (and some parts of S3), and I'm very happy that I was eventually proven so wrong about the show. Trust me, as much as I like to judge things based on presumptions, I'm more than glad to find out I made a miscalculation.

* Kill La Kill was an insanely fun rollercoaster ride right from the beginning to the sweet ending. There's still an OVA coming up on September 3rd, so it's not 100% over. This'll likely become one of those shows that I'll be marathoning every once in a while. It's so good I'm seriously considering to buy it on Blu-Ray. While technically not as good as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann due to its limited budget, KLK certainly held up much better during its second half and they didn't go for a stupid Gainax Ending that, at least for me, pretty much ruined the afore-mentioned show for me. Let me put it this way: wrapping up TTGL felt like I had consumed a very tasty banana split, one of the best one's I've ever had, only to taste pig shit after putting the final spoonful into my mouth. The god-awful aftertaste will be burned into your memory forever and you don't feel like wanting to eat the same banana split again because you know there's going to be excrement at the very bottom of the plate. And yes, I'm one of those types who don't feel like letting any food go to waste, which means I'd rather not watch a series at all than bail right before the end.

* KLK character rankings remain the same as in the previous 'Miscellaneous thoughts' journal post, although Ryuko certainly got better again after ep. 19 and she's back to old-school God Tier Ryuko during the series' finale.

* Opie, Anthony and Jim Norton did a fantastic Unmasked with Ron Bennington on Maundy Thursday to commemorate their 20th anniversary of doing radio together. Fantastic stuff, albeit most hardcore fans already knew almost all of it. Still, it's a damn good introduction to the guys as well as an interesting look behind the scenes of talk radio industry. In case you wondered, O&A is what I usually listen to these days when I'm drawing.

* Rest in Piece, Otto Petersen. You were magnificent – with or without George.

* I received my copy of Frozen 2-Disc Deluxe Edition soundtrack in mail earlier this week. The result? 'Let It Go' is now permanently stuck in my head on an endless loop. Not complaining, though.

* The DP 10th anniversary came and went rather quickly, as 10th anniversaries often tend to do. I didn't hear any additional news about a possible continuation for the series, though. Didn't Butch tease us with something like that at some point?

* Once again, a reminder: if you have any ideas for my webcam pic for May and/or later months, leave a comment with your suggestion! Additional instructions here.
  • Mood: Neutral
  • Listening to: Idina Menzel – Let It Go
  • Eating: submarine sandwich
  • Drinking: strawberry-flavoured soda

Kill La Kill: best girl?

I like drawing pretty cartoon ladies.

*** IMPORTANT ***

I would like to ask you not to 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).

If you know how to access a website called Paheal, you'll able to find my art there. Some of them also feature a link to my Blogger where I've stored all my nasty stuff. PROTIP: drop the '-oon' suffix from my deviantART name and you'll get the name I use when doing hardcore stuff.
