.:Secret Gaijin Exchange: Holiday Event 2014:.Well here is our next event!.:Secret Gaijin Exchange: Holiday Event 2014:.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
(Click the thumbnail below to know more)
Instead of a contest our wonderful admin arsetothem suggested a Secret Santa type of art exchange among the group members.
So here is the basic idea:
In the comments below, if you want to, sign up by typing the following
"Username: (Your username)
Skill Level: (Beginner, Intermediate, Expert)
Wish List: (What would you like your Secret Gaijin to draw)"
and fill in the parentheses.
Once commented you will be randomly selected to have your request drawn and in exchange you will draw someone else's.
One more thing, once sign-ups are over from December 2nd to the 24th you begin making the picture for the assigned member and upload it to a folder "Secret Gaijin Exchange". Also, no offensive art requests and don't forget to put who it is for in the description.
In the end, everyone who signs up will get a thoughtful winter/holiday gift!
REMEMBER NOT TO TELL WHO YO
Recent Troll Attack and New Rules and RegulationsEveryone we have a MAJOR announcement:Recent Troll Attack and New Rules and Regulations10 months ago in Personal More Like This
As of recent, we had a troll situation. He was quickly disposed of and will no longer be a threat to any member of the group. Anyone with deviations from "deviousdonut" must be deleted immediately from our messages. They're very crude and hateful and very much not meant for anyone to see.
In light of these events, there are new rules and regulations to this group:
1.) All incoming requests for joining the group must have the phrase, "Bringing culture to gaming" and be approved by the admins with a vote.
This is to ensure no more trolls join into this group.
2.) NO BIGOTRY, HATE, TROLLING!
We are serious, anyone caught saying anything other than encouragement or constructive criticism will be BANNED. NO EXCEPTIONS, we will not have any tolerance for poor behavior.
3.) Organizing submissions!
All submissions to gallery folders must be approved to the folder by an admin. You are responsible for submitting to the correct folder (for any issues

Have you ever experienced an irrational episode of your life? One that forever left you wondering if all of it actually, well...changed anything? I have my own story of this type to share. After all, who doesn't like a story? ...he sure does.
This began on a day much like any other I've had before. It was a rainy Friday afternoon, and I was relaxing within my eerily secluded suburban residence. It was like your ordinary small town house. Except literally in the epicenter of a tall field. Accompanied by a lone mailbox next to no crossroad and with no other example of humans...even existing in the span of eighteen miles. We had the house, the trees, and phone lines...but little of anything else outside. It's not much...but it is home. It tends to grow on you slowly. It had been a busy

My Appreciation for the goombasA quick note before I start. I can't draw to save my life and I was going to write a story that isn't a murder mystery but the thing is, because I've been writing murder mysteries for about 8 years now, I find it difficult to write anything else. So I suppose the best thing I have to other is my own Appreciation. (This is improvised so I apologise for any grammar or spelling mistakes)My Appreciation for the goombas6 months ago in Personal More Like This
THIS ISN'T A COMPETITION ENTRY BUT WHAT I HAVE TO SAY NEEDS TO BE SAID.
When I was younger, I always saw the goombas as an unthreatening enemy that I could dispatch of without hesitation by either killing them with a fire flower, stomping them or using the koopa shell to commit goomba genocide. I thought the points mattered but they don't, they never do.
I'm not the best Mario gamer in the world and I must confess I die a lot to all of the enemies - except for the goombas which made
New Art Contest! Theme: MECHS! (End May 1st)Hey everyone! Gaijin Goombah here!New Art Contest! Theme: MECHS! (End May 1st)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well with Titanfall fresh in everyone's heads, I thought it might be fun to have a fanart contest with the topic being giant robots/mechs/gundams etc.
So here's the skinny...
Take your favorite character from any of the G.G. shows, Game Exchange, Going Gold, etc, and either make them into a mech or create a personalized mech for them. This can be in the fashion of Titianfall, Hawken, Mechwarrior, Gundam, Eva, Gigantor, or any other giant robot game/show you can think of.
Submissions are due by May 1st.
10 winners will be selected and showcased with their deviant art names in a special video that I will put out post contest. Possible other prizes, but I'll keep you all updated on that.
Submit entries here: http://gaijingoomba-fanclub.deviantart.com/gallery/48640212
Have fun with it guys!

If you haven't seen the tweet he sent a couple weeks ago, it had said that he is bisexual. But the question is (from other loyal fans) who is he with?
He's been hanging around with Jason for a while (I'm saying this because they and two other guys were in LA for I think about a week) [aka Adam's vlog and the two skits they did]
(I blame myself for being on tumblr for too long)
I found a link to Adam's Instagram by using tumblr, and I found short videos of him singing and it was including Jason in it too
How I Loved, Hated, Then Loved Zelda Again.This is a long response I left for Jordan Underneath's video "WHY DOES EVERYONE HATE FI?" It basically sums up my feelings towards the Zelda franchise as a whole, and my realization of why I hated Zelda for such a long time, but now can enjoy it.How I Loved, Hated, Then Loved Zelda Again.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"I think the biggest problem with Skyward Sword and many 3D Zeldas to an extent is the general lack of exploration. The original Zelda, LttP, and even Link's Adventure to an extent was about roaming the world, finding secrets, and using your brain to progress. With the advent of 3D Zelda games, (Quoting ProJared cause he's right) Zelda became more about atmosphere and a LOT about combat. Z-targeting, motion controls, using enemy weapons, fantastic LOOKING worlds, temples, and dungeons.
Now, that being said I don't think that's bad. The problem is that it's dynamically very different. Where as people like me grew up knowing Zelda to be the most exploitative games of our childhood (late 80's early 90's), seeing that core principle that mad
DeviantArtist QuestionnaireHey guys! So it's deviantART's 15th anniversary and in honor I decided to take part in dA's Questionnaire.DeviantArtist Questionnaire1 month ago in Personal More Like This
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been on deviantART for over a year, but I've been posting art for exactly 366 days!
2. What does your username mean?
My username is mainly just a fancy version of the nickname I've been using for a while being "Gelo"
Before I started dA I always sort of associated the nickname Gelo with my art, as I would always sign my art with that name, so it felt only fitting to incorporate that into my username. And in case you couldn't guess by now the "97" is based off of the year I was born.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Creative, introverted, and passionate.
4. Are you left or right handed?
5. What was your first deviation?
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Between traditional and digital art. Traditional art is usually easier, but digital art always

Okay, so Valentine's ReviewThis year I think I'm going to review a Fairly Odd Parents episode, and there are two episodes that come mind. Yeah, I know it's Viacom, but it's not Spongebob so they don't give a crap. The two episodes I'm considering are "Just the Two of Us" and "Love Struck" (the actual Valentines' episode). Both annoy me... a lot.Okay, so Valentine's Review7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just the Two of Us, quite simply is character derailment. Trixey turns into a total nightmare when left alone. I wouldn't mind this so much if the episode didn't skirt a very real issue: for Timmy to keep pursuing her, he's going to have to deal with this at some point. It's the old saying, if you can't have her at her worst, you shouldn't want her at her best. And yet he does in future episodes...
Love Struck contains a lot of things I just hate about Valentines' Day specials with some stupid gender-stereotyping on top of it. There are a lot of smaller problems. Cupid is unlikable, and for some reason is stereotyped as camp. One of the bigger problems
Keeping busy...Thank you for all the kind and helpful responses on my last journal entry regarding copyright infringement woes. A bunch of issues have been put to rest, so that's good news. Thank you, also, for helping me by reporting some of the worst offenders...Alibaba has removed about 80% of the listings (that I know of) that had lifted my images illegally. They were using them to "bait and switch" which is so disgusting, I can't even... :/Keeping busy...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Aside from all that, I'm keeping myself busy and trying not to get too upset anymore (because it is really monumentally bad for my physical and emotional health). To be proactive, I've started putting big fat obnoxious watermarks on everything. It cuts down drastically on the number of views/shares I used to get. But then, it also probably cuts down on the amount of image and design theft that seems rampant here on DA so...you take the good with the bad I guess. Even if I get less views, I still prefer th
Writing Tips - Cliffhangers (Don't Use 'Em)So how do you use the proverbial cliffhanger in your creative work? You don't. Ever. Seriously, don't use cliff-angers. That may seem a little blunt, but there's no trope that's abused and misused as a cliff-hanger and when done wrong (as are 95% of them) there is no trope that causes as much ire and anguish. Personally I think that there is only one scenario where you can use a cliffhanger: at the end of a chapter of a novel THAT YOU INTEND TO FINISH. Do not use a cliffhanger in a movie, even if it's Part 2 of an intended trilogy. Do not use it at the end of a television episode, unless it is a two parter and the second part has already been made and slated to air. I know it seems counter-intuitive for an informative piece on a creative medium to say that you shouldn't flat out use something, but the "cliffhanger" needs to die in all but literature, and even then it's situational. It's the creative equivalent to the lobotomy.Writing Tips - Cliffhangers (Don't Use 'Em)6 months ago in Personal More Like This

And now some things I want to talk about. Sorry it's a bit long
So most of you know I've been really into my elemental dragons lately. They are much more intricate and time consuming than my usual work. It feels really good to push myself in a different direction and try to figure out new things. I have learned a TON while working on these guys! I've been trying new techniques with armatures, texturing, and skinner blends. Now, as I've been finishing them, I have been putting them up for auction which I feel may be giving the wrong impression for my continued sales. Some people have taken issue with me calling them One-of-a-Kinds stati

Top 10 Best Episodes of Bad CartoonsSo... people keep asking me to make this list.Top 10 Best Episodes of Bad Cartoons2 months ago in Personal More Like This
For the longest time, I've been kind of hesitant. I mean, I don't want to wade through episode upon episode of a very shitty show for the slight chance that there might be a good gem here and there. But I realized I wasn't exactly looking at this problem the right way. It's obvious that Mr. Pickles or My Life Me would have a good episode, because they have/had nothing good to work with. That's not true of much of the stuff I review. A lot of shows that I have reviewed, especially when it gets to the more "debatably bad" area, are merely wasted potential. They do have it in them to be good. Sometimes the planets align and you get something like Sand Castles in the Sand, which fuses the charm of old Spongebob and the animation of new Spongebob. Excluding SpongeBob (and this list will exclude SpongeBob), I've actually found quite a few episodes from bad shows that can be described as reverse duds, but I'd love to he
