For all you Kevin Levin fans out there, I'm sure you've noticed that Kevin has undergone a severe character regression. In Ben 10: Alien Force and Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, Kevin slowly and steadily began to reform to the point that he has become a true hero. In the abomination known as Ben 10: Omniverse, however, Kevin is now a selfish coward who cares more about his car than Ben, who he left to deal with Princess Looma. I bet you're wondering what Kevin's future holds in store for him, and I have terrible news (the following information came from a chat I had with SilverLady7, the founder of the Ben 10 Original Series to Ultimate Alien group, a group that supports everything about Ben 10 excluding Omniverse, which they criticize in a civilized manner);

It's a foreshadowing of what Omniverse intends to do to Kevin...make him a villain like he was in the original series, but poorly written. I have 2 pieces of evidence that supports my theory;

1. Derrick J. Wyatt was asked if Kevin was a mutant, and he said yes. Kevin's Osmosian heritage has officially been retconned by Derrick J. Wyatt so he could be a mutant again.

2. Weapon XI, the Rooters' secret weapon. XI is the Roman Numeral for 11, and Kevin's nickname is Kevin 11.

Considering how I was right about Sonic returning in SSB4 LONG before it was confirmed, and how Capcom's financial troubles (which may potentially cause the video game market to crash again) are because they emulated Call of Duty (which I believe will instigate a second video game crash), I'm feeling pretty confident that I'm right about this. 

Either way, I will NEVER forgive Omniverse if they do that to Kevin, because you're right. Kevin went through HELL to redeem himself. He took extreme measures that would shatter his credibility just so Ben could get the holo-viewer from his grandfather, he risked his life against Michael Morningstar to save Gwen, he went up against Verdona so that Gwen could stay on Earth, he shielded Gwen from a Highbreed, he helped Gwen pull Ben out of the Null Void, he helped Gwen come to her senses, he protected Ben from Vilgax after the Omnitrix was destroyed, he sacrificed his sanity to stop Aggregor, he created helmets for Gwen and Ben to keep Diagon from controlling them, and he took a beating from a Giant Mechamorph to see Azmuth to save Ben from the Sentient Ultimates.

But does Omniverse care? NO WAY! After everything Kevin has done to redeem himself, Omniverse makes him a selfish, lying, shady, useless coward just so he could be closer to his original series' self, even though Kevin has evolved since then and they already tried to make him look like his original series' self. Why can't Omniverse understand that some Ben 10 fans accepted Alien Force and Ultimate Alien and have grown up since the original series? 

I am a very big Ben 10 fan. I watched and was entertained by the original series. I watched and LOVED Alien Force, including Season 3. I watched Ultimate Alien to the very end, even during the Seasonal Rot of Season 2/3. I watched Heroes United and LOVED it, even though I wasn't interested in Generator Rex. I watched all the films, though I only saw a chunk of Destroy All Aliens due to me not paying attention to time. I have toys of Cannonbolt, Benwolf (I refuse to call him Blitzwolfer), XLR8, Upgrade & Stinkfly (whose parts can be interchanged), Ghostfreak (Zs'Skayr), Ripjaws, Chromastone, Big Chill & Spidermonkey (from the short-lived LEGO line of Ben 10 toys), Echo Echo, Goop, Rath, and Armodrillo. I even played some of the Ben 10 video games. However, Ben 10: Omniverse is the biggest insult to Ben 10 as a whole, from the horrible art to the derailed characters to the stupidity of the plot, and I will never defend it as long as I live.

Sorry about that. I got carried away

...Yeah, I figured I should post this.

  • Mood: Disgust
  • Watching: Ben 10 Omniverse: Rules of Engagement
So. I'm watching the Ben 10 Omniverse episode where Julie FINALLY comes back after 20+ episodes of being gone.... And she broke up with Ben. Off-screen. In a flashback.

This. Is such a waste of a character like Julie. She was FINALLY getting some good character development in the previous season. She was shown to be able to deal with Ben very well, and was very close to him, Gwen, and Kevin (well, Kevin somewhat). And she just disappears, only to reappear BROKEN UP WITH BEN AND WITH A NEW BOYFRIEND. WHAT THE HELL, WRITERS. WHAT THE HELL. THIS IS NOT HOW YOU TREAT CHARACTERS.

Yea, I know there wasn't really a chance of their relationship lasting for very long, but for it to unceremoniously end just like that, and without any true mention about until this episode, JUST MAKES IT SO FREAKING AGGRAVATING. It had its problems, like any other real relationship, but they understood each other, and really did care about one another. For goodness, THEY'VE FOUGHT VILLAINS TOGETHER BEFORE. So this breakup makes LITTLE SENSE.

I overlooked a lot of things that the writers have done to the show. I've overlooked some design changes like Big Chill's change into a bulky bug when I think he looks better with his original skeletal-motif, casting changes like how Gwen and Kevin left and were replaced by Rook (if only because Rook's a good character himself), and even the art style (which is kinda hard to get use to for me after the more "realistic" one used before). But this. This is a really huge waste of a character. She still had a lot of potential leftover from Ultimate Alien, and yet, the writers managed to screw that up. Yes. I get that Ben can be immature and prone to bad mistakes. But the way he broke up in the episode is SO STUPID, that even Ed from "Ed, Edd, n Eddy", would be "You are so stupid".

And I can't even stand her new boyfriend. He just seems to be pretty one-dimensional, and all he really has for him is that he's Julie's boyfriend and cares about her. That's it. We don't really find out more about him, he's just there to replace Ben as her boyfriend. Hell, after all of this, I don't even think we'll be seeing him again, along with Julie, since HER POTENTIAL HAS BEEN WASTED.

The writers made some mistakes here and there before with the sequel seasons. But is a really big one. Not only does it derail the ENTIRE FINALE OF ULTIMATE ALIEN, it derails a relationship that showed that despite some mistakes, they understood each other. And they derail it in the STUPIDEST AND UNCEREMONIOUS OF WAYS. Why? Just so that Ben can be freely flirted by Ester without any real repercussions about being in a relationship with Julie. That's what it feels like to me. It feels like they just broke up the two just so that he could be flirted by Ester. And even though I like her, I'm just frustrated about how they did this.

I thought I couldn't be angry with the show since it took a few liberties that I like. But this breakup is a waste of a character, when they could have continued developing Julie. And if they end up making it so that they get back together at some point, I will be furious then, too, because it makes this episode TOTALLY POINTLESS OUTSIDE OF GETTING RID OF PRINCESS LOOMA.

GOD I AM STILL ANGRY.

I made my best, but had to cut off the first part, like in Susan Boyles version.

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When fun was high
And Ben 10  worth watching
I dreamed that Gwevin would never die
I dreamed that CN would be forgiving
Then I was optimistic and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No joke unsaid, no smoothie untasted

But Derrick J. Wyatt comes at night
With his ego as big as a mountain
As he tears your hope apart
As he turns your dream to shame

And still I dream Kevin'll come back to me
That he and Gwen will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are stupid people we cannot weather

I had a dream Ben 10 would be
So different from this hell we´re living
So different now from what Omniverse is
Now CN has killed the dream I dreamed.





The Kevin part is confusing, I know - I meant I still dream Kevin will come back the way he was in UAF, or at least ressembling these good old times, in another cartoon. But how to rhyme this?

so this is a thing that i think might happen? i hope so...
what i'd like to do is "host" a big ol' collab picture that includes a lot of artists. this will give artists exposure to others and vice versa, from their point of view. also, it is fun!!
what i am planning to do is make a template sheet and paste pictures you guys send to me onto it, hence me acting as a "host". to give you some ideas, i'll start to explain what i would like to do. this will be a large picture that looks like a "select your fighter" screen, like this:
www.mobygames.com/game/sega-sa…
that is the basic idea, but i would like to add a few things. first off, there will be enough space for you to show more than your character's head. let's say...

----> MAKE YOUR PICTURE 250 PIXELS WIDE (horizontal) AND 300 PIXELS HIGH (vertical).

under that, i will add your character's name
under their name, i will add a catchy sorta nickname for them, specific to this "game"! it should be their "role", their defining active character trait. for example, my character morbaine fav.me/d52a7r3 (who i am going to add) will be titled "The King". z, who will also be added, will be called something like "The Eternal Soldier", or something less stupid sounding if i can come up with it. under that, i am thinking about including a few of their main abilities in bullet point form. not sure about that one; tell me what you think. to use morbaine as an example again, his list will be "time bending, energy manipulation, near-immortal toughness". brief and simple.

i would like to stress that i GREATLY ENCOURAGE ADDING MORE THAN ONE CHARACTER. the roster would like sorta' piss poor without that... i think. so, enter as many as you want!

you can also include some off-roster information, which will be displayed in the artist's comments box on the final picture next to your name. you can add things like a theme song, likes and dislikes, personality, relation to other characters, affiliations, etc...

----> ALSO, TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN ACTUALLY DO THIS AND WE CAN ACTUALLY MAKE THIS HAPPEN, PLEEEEEEEEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT THIS!

this thing is still in the stages of not actually being a thing that exists as of now, but response seems to be positive. if you want to enter, please do not hesitate, and tell your friends!

----> IF YOU ARE ENTERING A CHARACTER, SEND ME A NOTE WHEN YOUR PICTURE IS FINISHED. I WILL THEN GIVE YOU MY EMAIL ADDRESS SO YOU CAN SEND ME THE ACTUAL FILE. ALONG WITH THAT, PLEASE SEND THE CHARACTER'S INFORMATION, SUCH AS THEIR TAG, ABILITIES,  AND ANY EXTRA INFO THAT YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO ADD. THERE IS NO DEADLINE.

Hello readers, man its been ALONG time since my last newscast but I've been meaning to do a journal about Omniverse for awhile now. I grew up watching Ben 10 since it aired in 2005, at that time it was a cool show but when Alien Force came out I got into again and thought it was awesome and then when Ultimate Alien came out with Ben's Ultimatrix, my interest of the show went up a whole level. But then my love for the show was diminished when the directors of the show decided to change EVERYTHING and aired Omniverse. The show was terrible, I hate it as much as most of the total drama fandom hated All Stars. Before I talk about what I hate Omniverse, I just want to point out that I DO like SOME things about Omniverse. Some of Ben's new aliens are interesting (though they are running out of original ideas though, maybe its a sign for the producers/writers to bring back the Ultimatrix but Ill get more into that later), some characters like Rook and his Proto-Tool, and the villain Khyber and his pet's Nemetrix are cool. It is also cool that the show flashes back to 10 year old ben with the original Omnitrix is cool buts thats about it. Now for the negative things about Omniverse, I hate how they changed the original animation to Derrick Wyatt's crappy Scooby Doo:Mystery Incorperated series animation (another show which I personally hated as well) I mean after 3 shows/series of similar animation why change it to that garbage (were they so independent on Dwayne McDuffie in animating the show?). It makes the show look cheap, makes some characters look ridiculous to what they use to look like, and makes the show way too cartoony and childish then it should be, along with adding dumb/ kinda pointless miscellaneous things like that weird running Scooby Doo noise when a group of people were chasing Ben in "While you were away", the weird faces that Ben and the gang make near the end of " The Frogs of Wars Part 2", and how Rook literally separated the split screen between Looma and Attea in the end of "Catfight" (Would this count as a form of breaking the forth wall? because the characters, in this case Rook, were aware of the screens and can mold them/ pop up between them?) I think this is because Man of Action Studios is getting lazy because I've notice that a lot of their episodes have tons of references in them, from Dr. Who to Star Wars, this was ok in the previous shows/series because they would only do it once in a while but Omniverse over does this, which is slowing becoming bland.
   
    The reason Ben 10 got popular was because of the action, drama, and suspense they had, sure it had funny moments but now their seems to be too much of it. Another thing I dislike about the show was how that the directors got rid of Ben's Ultimatrix after only having it for two seasons (Im not counting the Alien Force finale) and not showing enough alien ultimate forms. After seeing how better the Ultimatrix was then the original Omnitrix, it makes the New Omnitrix look obsolete especially how the new Omnitrix malfunctions often. The only cool things about the new Omnitrix is how Ben can select aliens faster, how it can track new alien DNA and scan it from long range, and the Life-Form lock feature, I mean why give Ben his old powers back when the directors will change EVERYTHING in Omniverse. Another benefit of giving Ben an Ultimatrix is that if he gets a bad alien he can go Ultimate to make that alien better, which would not only stop the gag of Ben turning into the wrong alien but show new Ultimate Aliens. This would also be good for toy companies cause new ultimate aliens means new Ben 10 toys which make the company money. I just hope that Ben gets another Ultimatrix sometime on the future (as shown that Albedo built his own Ultimatrix). Another thing I hate about Omniverse is how they changed Ben's personality. The last episode of Ultimate Alien, we see Ben as a mature, smart like teen who had grown up a lot in AF/UA but then the directors turned him into a fucking arrogant moron, I mean what the fuck!! all that character development flush down the drain. How can people be ok with the new Ben, I also hate how they used his new personality to lazily break up Ben and Julie I mean how could they, they have so much history together and the writers lazily broke them up by an angry Ben yelling at a fucking videogame while on the phone with Julie!!!! I just hope they get back together at some point.

    Were the directors of Omniverse on drugs when they wrote out the series! I feel like Omniverse is ruining all of Dwayne McDuffie hard work and if the directors and producers care about their dead friend/co worker they should change things back to what they were in Alien Force or at least the original Ben 10. What do you think about Omniverse, should we make a petition to change Omniverse? Leave your opinion about the show below BUT any angry/mocking comments will be removed.
I've made it pretty clear that I hate Ben 10: Omniverse for the damage it is causing to the Ben 10 franchise, with my major issues being that Omniverse shows little respect to Dwayne McDuffie's contributions, the numerous retcons damaging the continuity (which was perfectly fine, Omniverse executives) of the Ben 10 franchise, the derailment of Ben Tennyson to be more like his original series' self (despite being a teenager now) and the ongoing attempt to make Kevin a villain again by slowly derailing his character until the Rooters unleash Weapon XI, which I am convinced will be Kevin, the horrific implications caused by the universal recreation (I think the Petrosapiens are now dead since Chromastone's flight ability has been retconned as a glitch, meaning Sugilite couldn't have gotten to Petropia's remains to restore it in time), and overall terrible writing (I'm looking at you, Rules of Engagement). As someone who has followed Ben 10 since the original series, Omniverse is even more offensive to me because I expect better from Ben 10. You would think that I would have abandoned Ben 10 as a whole with how much I hate Ben 10: Omniverse, so why haven't I?

Simple, the fanbase. I'm not referring to the Omnatics who treat Omniverse as sacred material and the greatest thing since sliced bread that support the horrible direction Omniverse has taken, to the point of ENCOURAGEMENT. I'm referring to the members of the fanbase that support everything pre-Omniverse and the fans who at least accept that Omniverse is flawed while still enjoying it, but understand why people hate Omniverse. Fans like SilverLady7, Darinas, and Kapaychan are the kind of fans who amaze me with how devoted they are to Ben 10 while expressing their problems with Omniverse in a civilized manner and refusing to be intimidated by the Omnatics. As long as fans like these people exist, I can remain hopeful that Ben 10 can one day return to the greatness it had from the original series to Ben 10: Ultimate Alien. Thank you, members of Ben-10 OS-to-UA, for taking a stand against Ben 10: Omniverse, Derrick J. Wyatt, and the Omnatics who support such drivel.

NOTE: I submitted this in Omniverse parody and critics because I take the time to criticize Omniverse and because I didn't know where to submit it otherwise.

My DeviantART Story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 8:21 AM

I had been aware of deviantART’s existence for years and years before actually joining. I think I first saw a link there when I was browsing someone’s personal website and they mentioned they had an account in a big art site. I visited it but didn't understand a bit about how it worked or what was it’s purpose. Slowly, as I became a bit better (or at least less awful) at understanding English, I started to figure it out and became curious. I was afraid of joining for a long time because I knew it might result someone misusing my art, which was the absolute worst thing. I also knew that my English was far from fluent, and internet can be surprisingly harsh towards those who don’t speak English as their first language. I was terrified of writing descriptions to my pieces, because they had to be understandable for people all around the world and I simply lacked words.

In one late evening in September 19, 2010 (the year I started high school) I got tired with undecisiveness and gathered enough courage to register an account. I chose the name I had been using on a couple of forums, GhoulShoe (Ghoul because I was crazy about Near-Eastern folklore and Shoe because it kind of rhymed, eh). Years later I changed my username to something more personal, CanisAlbus, which means ”white dog” in Latin.

The oldest piece in my gallery was submitted September 19, 2010:
Masque's and Radon's debut.

Circle Of Madness by CanisAlbus

September 24, 2010.
One of the first completely digital pieces.

Corruption by CanisAlbus

August 18, 2012.
Full backgrounds, even as simple as this, are a lot of work when you work with traditional media.

Chase Your Dreams by CanisAlbus

October 8, 2012.
Around the time I made this, I finally found an efficient way to combine traditional sketches or inked lines with digital coloring and shading. This increases the amount of mixed media art in my gallery, but sadly there's less completely traditionally made pieces from now on.

Saga of Lord Emil by CanisAlbus

I think I started gaining followers slowly but surely right from the beginning. I remember how grand it felt when the hundredth watcher joined the crowd, back then I used to thank everybody individually for watching me :’3 if I were to pick the moment of ”surfacing”, it would most likely be December 2011, when my page views crossed over 8,500 hits per month. I received my first Daily Deviation around the same time:

New Divide by CanisAlbus

The main subject of my drawings were and still are canines, anthropomorphic or not, but I've also tried to include other animal species to my pieces. I love creating my own original characters and plotting out stories for them. Most of the animals that make appearances in my works have names, personalities and back stories. I enjoy variation, trying out new techniques and styles, it keeps an artist from stagnating and makes one’s art less easier to imitate, I think. Ever since I started taking a less strict approach to what and how I draw, I haven’t had a single major art block. Drawing humans is something I’m still a bit hesitant to do, but this weakness doesn't bother me that much. I don’t enjoy portraying humans as much as other things, so I don’t see a reason to force myself to draw them unless I have to. I think I should try to focus more on developing an ability to create scenic backgrounds in the future, and it would be wonderful to learn to paint digitally someday. Generally I’m very content with the direction my art is going at the moment. I doubt that this kind of improvement and development would have been possible if I just kept my art to myself and never showed it to anyone.

At the moment I joined dA, some of my biggest idols here were
:iconisismasshiro: :icongrypwolf: :iconhakaishi: :iconsashatiainen: :iconwildspiritwolf: :iconminnasundberg: :iconwhitespiritwolf: :iconkyoht: :iconlhuin: :iconculpeo-fox: :iconskia: :iconleppu:.  

During my four years here, I’ve come across a number of other artists worth admiring,
:iconcoyotemange: :icontschahri: :iconnovawuff: :iconscrewbald: :iconshinerai: :icontatchit: :iconsmolderbone: :icongaudibuendia: :iconshadow-wolf: :icontuonenkalla: :iconkipine: :iconphobs: :iconlilaira: :iconbeastofoblivion: :iconmacgreen: :iconvekke: :iconpocketowl: :iconninjakato: :iconevelmiina:
just to mention some top picks! There's plenty of more. For some reason, many of the mentioned people watch me nowadays, I’ve had a chance to talk to them and somehow befriended quite a few of them. They never cease to amaze and inspire me with their art, same goes for all the rest wonderful artists that I’m watching!

Surely showing your art online has it’s downsides and I would be lying if I said that the often occurring cases of copyright infringements and persistent style copycats never made me lose my sleep or think about leaving the site completely, but I try to stay positive and remember all the sweet and encouraging comments I've received. Apparently my scribbles genuinely brighten someone’s day every once a while, and that’s what keeps me going.

Lastly, I want to thank all my friends and supporters, I wouldn't be here without you! Those active watchers who frequently comment, contribute and offer their help deserve a special thank you, so do those who watched me when I was still a newbie artist larva and have stayed around for all these years. You know who you are, thank you for existing `v´ I know I’m not good at replying at your messages and lately I've really failed at showing my appreciation towards the fantastic gift art people have made for me (I’m so terribly sorry, I’ll comment eventually!). Even if I didn't respond your message, I want you to know that I’m not purposely ignoring you so please don’t be discouraged! I always read everything that ends up in my message center and your feedback means a world to me! I’ll do my best to keep making art that pleases your eyes~

All in all, this site has offered me a way to bring out my best sides and share my enthusiasm for art with the community. I’m eternally grateful for that! Happy birthday DeviantART!

I liked The first Ben 10 series. The Second series was good Ben was a little more mature and was shown to have some hidden intelligence. and Kevin became a good guy. And the story in general became darker and edgier and more interesting. The third series ok, the whole ultimate alien transformation was kinda campy.

But Ben 10 Omniverse series Ben has taken a huge Level in Dumbass as well as general flanderistion, and has become too dumb to live and Lethally Stupid, granted he was always a Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass but now they over did it . In fact it's a wonder how Ben as not destroyed the world yet. and Ben has become extremely cocky and arrogant just downright annoying. A another thing in the original series Ben did most of the fighting himself occasionally getting some help from Max or Gwen, but in Omniverse Ben is comply helpless without Took or someone watching his back all the time (or adlest it was that way in early episodes of Omniverse) Rook even lampshades this.

And Ben as no controll over what alien he become (1 out of 10 it miss fires, the show even lampshades a few times,) and the wiki says it never miss fires (yeah rigjt ) I know it miss fired a lot in UA and the original show but OA take it up to eleven. And there are some really stupid new aliens especially Bloxx (giant lego man), Chashhopper (who's power is jumping high and chasing in to things), Kick in Hack (who is redundant).

And what's with the sudden  Art Shift. The new animation is terrible. The design of all the character is terrible especially Big Chill, Kevin Levin, Vilgax, and Gwen.  


only descent villain is Malware and even he got down played. His plan and goal is extremely sketchy at best and was never given a clear motive. (still he was one of the most badass villains in the Ben 10 series. But he could have been so much more.) The entire villain gallery become a bunch of incompetent jokes.

and Vilgax looks just downright stupid when compared to aperience is in the previous series and isn't even the main villain ( and not even Ben takes the guys seriously anymore.) and in general this shows attempt to make this series lighter and fluffier is just ridiculous and is created quite a few plot holes and refrigerator logicit that is too obscure to comment on. what are the only things I like about this show would be


Malware which I said earlier I could've been better and Rook (which is interesting because I'm not very much into lawful good characters) It sames like the makers of OV never saw the other three shows.

Farewell by MahmudAsrar

Dear friends,

As apparent from my absence in the last few issues of Supergirl I am no longer the series artist on the book. I will no longer be drawing the book and #20 was my final issue. I will however remain the cover artist on the book for just a few more issues.

What kept me from drawing the book initially was some health issues after which I had to rest for a bit. In the meantime I was offered some other projects which I took into consideration. Offers that ultimately had me make some important decisions. Unfortunately one of these decisions was to resign from art duties on Supergirl. Believe me, It was not an easy decision but one I had to make for the sake of several things in my career and life.

Over the past couple of years I've had an amazing time defining Supergirl for the New 52 with my collaborators in DC Entertainment. It was an honour to be a part of this bold new direction for DC. I was probably among the lucky few who had a wonderful team of collaborators throughout the whole thing, some of whom I've come to call good friends. My creative partners Mike Johnson, Michael Green, Michael Alan Nelson, Dave McCaig, Rob Leigh and some awesome others - My editors Wil Moss, Matt Idelson, Eddie Berganza and Rickey Purdin - The whole crew at DC Entertainment who've made everything work smoothly and was helpful throughout. I thank each and everyone sincerely.

Last but certainly not least, I'd like to thank you all so much for sharing your appreciation towards my art on this book. Can't tell you how much it means when I hear somebody say they've been buying the book just because I was drawing it. You guys are awesome.

This was definitely one of the highlights of my career and I'll look back fondly.

Now other things await me. Exciting new things that you'll find out about soon enough. See you in the funny books. Here's a sneak peek on what's next:
