I'm a down-to-Earth, shy, sometimes random, guy who loves to draw ponies and make other people smile. I do what I do to keep my friends and followers entertained but most importantly for my own enjoyment because I love art.

The main thing about me is that I'm a diehard brony. I got into My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic less than a year after it started airing and have been hooked ever since. I used to draw Transformers fanart, but due to a lack of interest in it lately, I've taken mainly to drawing ponies because I love it and it's helped gain me a wider audience. My favorite character is Pinkie Pie because she's lovable, silly, and she always makes me smile no matter how sad I am! :)

I have Aspergers Syndrome, similar to Autism but not quite. Doesn't mean I'm stupid, I just have slight learning disabilities and have a hard time understanding what some people say sometimes and I can get easily confused. Remember, Albert Einstein had autism and look how far he got in life!

If I come across as religious to you then know that I put my faith in God, not religion.

I am a college graduate with a degree in Motion Graphics. I love to draw, make movies for youtube, sculpt, play video games, collect action figures, and hang out with my family and friends.

My gallery is safe for work with occasional pinups.

Well there are a few things I've really wanted to talk about so let's try and get through some of them as fast as we can.

First of all Felix Kjellberg, aka PewDiePie.

I have actually wanted to make a journal just about Felix for a while now and I'll get to that another day but the reason why he's such a big deal lately is because of the fact that the Indian Vevo channel "T-Series" might outdo him in subscriber count soon.  Felix is still the most-subbed person on YouTube but a few months ago, it was predicted that T-Series would outdo him in November.  They are catching up to him, though, about a week ago, tons of people, including other famous YouTubers like Markiplier banded together to spread the word of this and just as T-Series was closing in fast, the gap started to get wider.  Before this happened, they were about 100,000 subs away from beating him, now it's over 1,000,000.  Felix currently has about 76,154,975 and T-Series has 75,121,502 at the time I'm writing this.  Those numbers could go up substantially depending on when you read this.

You may wonder why this is such a big deal and I'm sure plenty of you are getting really annoyed with seeing "Subscribe to PewDiePie" all over the internet or coming out of your printer, but this is a big deal because it's symbolic in a way.  I'll talk more about this on my post about Felix but part of why he remains relevant to this day and why people want him on top is because he's an authentic person.  He started out as a typical YouTube celebrity who did something that a lot of us wondered how he could get famous for it (Let's Plays) but in the past few years, he's been changing a lot.  Felix has been more honest with his audience saying he wants to do less gaming and diversify his channel with things like You Laugh You Lose, Meme Review, Pew News, or just about anything random that comes to his mind like reacting to crazy stuff on Reddit.  I don't know much about T-Series but they are a huge corporate entity and having them be on top doesn't feel right to the vast majority of YouTubers because it symbolizes how those types of channels have just taken over YouTube and that's all the website is about now.

YouTube's slogan is supposed to be "Broadcast Yourself" and the "You" in it's very title is supposed to represent exactly what it says.  It was meant to be a place where anyone can make videos from their own house, follow their passion and even make a living off of it.  It wasn't supposed to originally be a place for big businesses to just nose their way in and take all the hard-earned cash that these smaller creators deserve.  They already have plenty of ways of making money but now they're practically stealing it, especially with videos being claimed by companies despite being protected by fair use.  People can have their videos demonetized for simply mentioning the hurricanes that have been happening because YouTube has a problem with making money off of tragedies for some reason but a Jimmy Kimmel video does the exact same thing and gets away with it.

Whether you like Felix or not, his place as the most-subscribed YouTuber remains symbolic of what YouTube is supposed to be and who it is supposed to be for.  YouTube should be controlled by it's users, not big business.  If Felix can remain #1 and stay ahead, this will empower us smaller creators and even though he has admitted that he won't mind if T-Series beats him, I'm sure he understands that.

Speaking of which, let's move on to Rewind YouTube.

Well we've already established how big businesses are taking over YouTube and the small creators are being trampled on, and the latest Rewind YouTube video further proves that.  I just watched the video and everyone is right: it is abject horror.

I liked the custom animation (animators need more love), Lucas the Spider, the dog, the baby shark thing and Markiplier being in there but that's about it.  Fortnite was bound to be in there somewhere to a point where I would have just rolled with it but there was way too much of it.  The social justice talk got really annoying, the drag queens made my eyes bleed, and I think the worst part was seeing Trevor Noah and John Oliver doing Fortnite Dances.  Not only was it cringey, it just goes back to what I said about how big business is overshadowing the smaller creators that this site was designed for.  I don't hate these guys but what business do they have being on YouTube?  They didn't start off on YouTube and they're already making enough money from their own brands to begin with!  They're just taking over all the views and money and whenever they break rules that smaller YouTubers would normally get penalized for, they get away with it scot free!  This might be biased of me to say but I personally don't think that such people should get monetization the way the smaller regular creators do.  They could sponsor YouTube and therefore be in the ads but I don't think they should make money off of having their own content being on it.  Again, that might sound biased but YouTube was not made for them.  Period.

Well I'm rambling and I don't think there's much more I can say about this that I haven't already said in the PewDiePie section.  You already know what the problem is with YouTube.  I just wish that we could have a better video-sharing site that can compete well with YouTube.  I had hoped for a while that they would bounce back and listen to the people but it's gotten to a point of no return for me.  YouTube is dead.  You can't change my mind.

On a better note, Grandayy made this more appropriate version of Rewind YouTube that I highly recommend.

And now what better way to end this with a little more cringe:  The Sonic movie design.

Image result for sonic movie poster

Look, the movie isn't out yet and we don't even know the plot or anything so I can't judge based off of any of that, but I must say, this design looks totally ugly.

His arms and legs are too human-like and even though it's a silhouette, the whole thing is just entering uncanny valley territory.  I hope that his face is at least accurate enough but I feel like they screwed that up too.

I mean come on, look at Pikachu in the new Detective Pikachu movie coming up!  He's realistic and has visible fur and stuff but he's still close enough to how Pikachu looks in the art of Pokemon to begin with and it's not ugly or uncanny valley.

How could you say no to that face?!  With how good this turned out, was it really that hard to do Sonic?  No idea who did the designs for that movie but holy crap do they need to delay the release to take time to redo things cuz this is looking to be an absolute disaster of a movie.  Even if the movie is actually good in terms of story, pacing, and acting and stuff, it's going to get massive complaints for the designs.

The irony of the situation is, I actually obsessed over the idea of a live action Sonic movie as a teenager and I drew my own designs but I don't have them with me right now to show.  I might have thrown them away cuz I cringed when I look at them but after seeing this, I love them now!   If I can find them, I might show them but I might just try to draw my own version for the fun of it to show everyone.  A lot of artists are doing that and I feel I should join in.

Welp, there ya go.  Subscribe to PewDiePie, YouTube sucks, and Sonic got run over by a truck and lived.  2018 is ending on quite a high note!  :P

Activity


I just got a Ko-fi account!  It's under construction but you can send some support if you wish!  ko-fi.com/C0C7NA98
Should I get a Ko-fi account?

I wanted to do a poll about this but I would feel kinda arrogant making an option that says "Yes and I would totally send you some money!"

I've always been on the fence about donations since I'm afraid I'd look like an e-beggar, but if you think it's a good move for me, feel free to let me know.
I may open for commissions again tomorrow night but they can only be $50 or under and a limited amount of slots. How big of requests I start getting will determine the amount of slots.
Wait, what's this about a new layout change coming in?  O.O
Hey everyone. In case you're wondering where the Hell I've been, I was wrongfully suspended from DA for two weeks. I'm in break at the moment and will be back later tonight to explain what happened in a journal entry and will have some art to upload that I did during my absence....

Journal History

Things you should know before commenting on my profile

-I do NOT take any requests or trades and never will.

-My commissions are paypal only! I do not accept points.

-I am currently taking commissions, however, I may be closed at the time you are reading this so check the profile widget above to see if I am open and please be sure to read and familiarize yourself with the rules and rates journal before asking for one.

-If you give me a llama, you have my thanks, but don't expect me to give one back.

-Please do not ask me to role-play with you. This is not an RP account and I don't RP, ever.

-Please don't send me requests to join groups, I don't like being part of too many but you are free to request my art to be featured in one.

-DO NOT send me random links or I will mark it as spam! You can only send me links if I ask for one or if you are someone that I know very well and trust.

-I would advise that you not come asking me for any help with life problems or something because I'm not good at that sort of thing and am a terrible teacher so I wouldn't be much help.

-NO CHAINMAIL!!! Please none of this "You've been hugged" stuff or anything similar, it's honestly annoying, nuff said.

-NO journal game tagging!

-These rules also apply for notes. DO NOT send me a note doing any of the above!

ATTENTION!! (why my comments are disabled)

I have been getting harassed, threatened, impersonated and even libeled for the past two years by a user who usually registers under the name "Sepulchre". He has also gone by "GinaCarpini" or "Hazel Schnuffington" He spams the comments in all of my deviations with very inappropriate content and constantly evades IP bans to come back over 40 times now. He's been impersonating me with similar usernames like "AlexlmusPrime" or "AieximusPrime" to fool people and has also been making outrageous claims that I or one of my followers raped some random girl.

If you get a reply from him, DO NOT try to instigate him at all. Just block him and report him to the DA administration. If we get enough people doing it DA may wise up and ban him for good but only if enough people send a message.

By the way, someone named SpokenMind93 has it out for you. They made a "call-out" video regarding you a few weeks ago.

They're well-known for obsessing over bronies that they don't like, one example being Toxic-Mario/Mighty-Muffins.

Thought I should give you a heads-up.

Yeah, I am aware of it.  She's a cowardly, spiteful individual and she loves just shitting all over people she disagrees with.  All I did was argue with her in defense of Tox over a year ago and now she's apparently been obsessively stalking me.  My suspension from DA was I guess the only thing she felt she could use against me, but she wasted too much time on that video because people already knew what happened before she made it.

I've seen some people say that they've had encounters with you where you came across as abrasive to them, but I've never gotten that from you at all.

If by "encounters" they mean some online spats in the past, that is true, yes.  Some people have gotten on my bad side and in the past there have been some instances where, in retrospect, it could have been handled a little better by me.  Thinking about it now, I feel I made a lot of mistakes with some conversations I've had with some people.  What happened with SpokenMind, however, is an example of someone treating me awfully for not agreeing with them even though I was simply defending a friend, and they now try to ruin me.  I've actually had some people straight-up refer to me as a pedophile just because of what happened with my Shantae art despite the fact that I wasn't aware that the Wayforward Twitter said she was 16 (even though I still don't consider that an official confirmation of her age since the person running that account is probably not in charge of the games canon.)  This happened AFTER SM made her video because they got the information from her and I had to explain to that person what really happened.  Because of SM, some people may keep doing this and I may have to call her out myself.  I have decided to just let it slide for now since I'd rather not stoop to the same low she has, but she did it to me for no reason whereas I may have to defend my good name at some point or people are just going to keep believing her.

I'm going to have to ask you to stop sending random links to my page unless I ask for one.  I have a widget above these comments somewhere that asks that people not do this.  If I see it again, I'm blocking you.  No exceptions.

Yeah, no offense but I have absolutely no interest to see it.  Again, be respectful and don't link me stuff randomly or you'll be blocked.
