But let's get this started!
It all started 7 years ago
I vaguely remember surfing this website when I was young. I was a bit internet shy so I never ever thought about submitting my own art! (and how happy I am about that because oh boy if you guys had to see my 13-14 stuff! HOHOH) No, I settled for browsing through other people's art and just showing my art and comics to my little cousin.
Eventually I started to feel that I might wanted to get more active in the internets. My first real internet account was my youtube account. At the time, I was a huge The Nightmare before christmas fan. I spent a lot of time looking for videos of it. And I can't exactly remember how I we met, but I met Sony-Shock through youtube. Ah! It was so amazing to find

WHY THE HECK IT TOOK ME SO LONG?!
Well, this four years have been really important in my life. When I started DD, I was close to finishing my studies and graduating. This was, of course, quite big deal. I had my final thesis to write and I had to find a job. Thankfully I got them all done and I now have a great job as a graphic designer.
That was one thing that affected my comic making time... But of course, there was that one reason that took my interest and eventually lead to another delay. RP groups.
I am not gonna lie, those groups took my interest completely and DD and Random Doom in general was no longer my main interest. But I do not regret it. These RP groups affected my story making skills and eventually it lead to that other delay I mentioned earlier, complete rewriting of RD casts' bios.
I did receive a comment about how this
Nuzlockes - a niche within a nicheHey everyone!Nuzlockes - a niche within a niche in Personal More Like This
While Nuzlocke comics and stories may be popular, I've noticed a recurring pattern involving the authors within the community. Some authors do it for fun and use nuzlockes as part of a mindless hobby and others dedicate their LIVES to it and take it utterly seriously to the point of asking...what is the point?
Being in a community with these individuals who act as pseudo intellectuals and try really hard to engage you with their flowery vocabulary and pretentious standards, is getting pretty tiring to me. Don't get me wrong, I've met amazing people in this community and it's a blast talking to them. Some of my friends are one of the most popular Nuzlocke artists out there and not once did I think that their popularity was blinding them.
Then I met people who take their popularity so seriously that they make it out of their way to make guides about storytelling and tutorials about making Nuzlocke comics. There have even been GROUPS dedicated in judging Nuzlockes, which is.
Judgement is my therapy~So I’ve been asked a lot of how and why I update my comic so quickly, and I wanted to write down the answer because I believe it’s important to let you guys know WHY I do this. This is the only comic I update regularly and it’s one that I do without any profit. Not only that but it’s 50% based on Pokemon and 50% based on my original ideas so why should I continue doing something that isn’t profitable or not completely ‘mine’?Judgement is my therapy~ in Personal More Like This
I do it because it gives me an insane amount of happiness. So much so that it reduces my clinical anxiety/Post traumatic stress disorder.
I believe it’s because the subject of the comic is tied to Pokemon. When I was a kid, Pokemon was the franchise I was most interested in but after the fad went away and I started to go through puberty I was bullied a lot for it. So much so that I had to hide at recess so I could play Pokemon peacefully where the bullies didn’t pick on me.
Judgement - MarigoldHey everyone! So I’ve been getting an interesting response to Marigold’s new attire. Some people get the impression that I’m making Marigold ‘prettier’ , which is very interesting to me since I feel like I’ve been drawing Marigold the same as always. However there is one thing that’s intentional and that is that Marigold’s appearance will change slightly over time.Judgement - Marigold in Personal More Like This
Marigold is initially supposed to represent the ‘ugly duckling’ stage (She’s 14 years old, BARELY a teen). This is when a child goes through puberty and their body is going through changes. Some of these changes look really awkward since it’s a mix of childish body parts mixed with adult ones.
On top of that, Marigold’s old outfit wasn’t even her’s. It belonged to her mother. Because of the Whitney incident, Marigold realized how important it is to be your own person therefore she made the decision (with Whitney’s help
