Hey all! A few friends of mine and I started a Discord chat for webcomic creators! It's going to be a casual chat for people to connect over a shared interest--namely, making webcomics. If you're passionate about creating comics, you have a webcomic you'd like to show to others, or you want to discover other webcomic creators like yourself, please consider joining our chat! Don't be shy, say hi!

The link is here:
discord.gg/JTvPRDT

I know I haven't been too active lately but this is a great way to connect with me. Stay tuned for more projects!

Oh by the way, if you're still reading, check out my new YouTube cartoon called Dark: the Series!
I'm in the process of clearing out my inbox. I've gone through about 700 deviations, and there's 1600 more to go. This is actually pretty relaxing--I haven't seriously gone through my DA inbox all year. I'd stopped going on DeviantArt a while back because my relationship with art became strained (and it still hasn't returned to normal) as I tried to focus on academics and my career. I think I've been letting the deviations pile up because I've been afraid of clearing through them... but it's not that bad, and I'm actually enjoying it.

Does anyone else have this overwhelming paranoia that you're going to stop improving in art at some point? I just can't get over it. I'm constantly thinking over the years I've lived, analyzing my past to determine if I ever had a chance and comparing it to my current state to determine whether I still have a chance. I'm counting the years ahead of me--a month shy of 20, I give myself 6 years before my brain stops developing and before fluid intelligence begins to deteriorate. If mathematicians make their greatest discoveries at 19, I'm screwed because all year I've only been able to produce uh... Fluzzle. Shifty-Eye Emote  I just want to know what stops improving. If I can't be good now, I at least want to know what I can't be good at in 6 years so I can take appropriate actions. 

The truth is, though, I'm out of practice. I spent the quarter perfecting my understanding of digital logic design... Actually it was worth it because it opened up opportunities for me in what would otherwise appear to be a bleak career situation. (Isn't adulthood just wonderful?) But I'm so out of practice that I can barely hold the tablet pen without wanting to die. I still wish I'd went to art school sometimes. I just feel like I need direction or guidance, someone to give me support or tell me what to do or what not to do. But fuck art school, that's what you guys are for! All year I've been anxious, but now I'm feeling confident enough to come back to DeviantArt and see what's up. So, help out a fellow artist? What's the best way to overcome art block? I've been gone but I can't wait to talk to you guys again :D

Hey guys! I haven't been too active recently but I've been busy working on stuff for my comic. Check out the animated trailer I made for my webcomic, Patent the Sun!

A pair of masked heroes wake up in the castle of an Archdemon, given the task to protect their master at all costs. However, things don't go as planned.

Read the comic on Tapas: tapas.io/series/Patent-the-Sun
Or on Webtoons: www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/…

If you've been enjoying the comic so far, it would really help me if you shared it with a friend!

To some of you technically I already had a webcomic... but... anyway....


Okay anyway now some ramblings about feelings and whatever that Idk who even cares to read:
I haven't posted in so long OTL I'm feeling kinda weird about art these days I mean I go on DA and see that I have like 1000+ unread messages, about 3/4ths of which are deviations, and it keeps growing every day without me ever checking them and I just want to delete all of them. In general I'm pretty unexcited about art now and it's weird that at some point it was so important it was life or death for me. I really need to prune down the artists I watch so that I'm only watching those who still inspire me, but that's hard to do because I still wanna give artists a chance to impress me I guess? But that sounds egocentric I mean it's not like they even care about like one person. Unless they're a mutual which makes it even harder to unwatch people lol. 
Idk it's just weird to like... have this falling out with art. I mean I still want to do cool illustrations and stuff, but that takes a lot of time. So I have to ask whether it's worth spending time on a kinda... meaningless hobby. I mean for me art used to be about improving, learning anatomy, learning techniques, making every picture better than the last, trying to be the best artist ever, etc... and I still have room to improve, but now the drive to do it just isn't as great? Because if the goal is just to keep getting better then there isn't any real meaning besides for "I'm on this super long artist journey to get better" with the side effects being some pretty pictures along the way. And I would have been satisfied with that journey were it not for realizing I'm not the only person in the world, I need job security, and the world is dying of global warming. So I guess I know what Oscar Wilde means when he said "All art is quite meaningless." 
*Well I'd like to concede that if art was my career then my current thoughts would probably be different.
So anyway before I could reflect on all my soul-crushing life choices and be dead inside, I decided at least my major will get me a job I can devote some of my energy to comic-making, since that's always been fun for me and I can share the comics with others. I think comics have the power to offer new perspectives, the way good art does (was that an offhand comment about certain art? shit). These days I've replaced regularly checking Deviantart messages with regularly reading my favorite webcomics, and I think the only way for me to get back to doing the former is by PRUNING ALL THE DANG ARTISTS I WATCH. Growing up it was useful to be exposed to a wide range of artists, but now I realize that even though all the artists I watch are good, I prefer some of the art over the others, and that's the distinction I have to make right now if I want to continue consuming art. Being more selective about the artists I watch will not only reflect my opinions but will also allow me insight for the personal direction that I want to take.
... or I can just ignore it and let my inbox rot and fester

Style will really depend on my mood I'm afraid XD

Good luck! ^^
PERSONA: Your character that represents you.
 Trixi by alizawren 
Um I don't really have one ;sdajdlsj except for maybe that goat girl in my DeviantID


GUARDIAN ANGEL: You protect yourself through them, vent through them etc, they keep you strong.
Lennox by alizawrenDisclosure by alizawren
Does it say something about me that I hide behind an angsty insomniac teenage boy


SUNSHINE: A character that never fails to make you smile. Maybe they have bright colours or maybe they're very cute. A character who is your own personal sun.
Coyan by alizawrenCoyan2 by alizawren
Quite literally, this guy doesn't fail to make me smile. But I'm not confident I could explain why. Maybe it's the fact that he's an extremely personal character, or that I made him in 2010/11, or that he's so ridiculous. Yeah, it's probably all of those things.


SENTIMENTAL VALUE: Okay, now who has the most sentimental value? Maybe a character you received from a friend, or who you have fond memories of. Perhaps they're very old?

Beige Ref by alizawren
;aljkfgah;gklrhfalkd;jfdkjerakh;afhk


THE FANCY ONE: Your flashiest character! Probably the prettiest one or the one with the most fancy design.
Impurities by alizawrenIllness by alizawren
There's no contest for this one, it's definitely April. As for why he's so fancy? ?!?! It's because--


THE RARE ONE: How about a character you're so surprised you actually managed to get? You probably won't be letting go of them anytime soon!
Uhhh I guess this one doesn't apply to me since I don't adopt characters. But an oc I prize/treasure is Kay!
Barf Town 2 by alizawrenKay Reference 2016 by alizawren


THE FANDOM CHARACTER: You heard me! Everyone's got one, fork them over!
Who do you think I am, some kind of fan-fiction writer?

Magical Girl by alizawren
Okay I had to search really freaking far for this one, here's a magical girl oc that I didn't even design LMAO ;AJLKDS IN 2011!! 


THE NEWBIES: Okay who just joined your family of characters? Let's see them!
Danger Chick by alizawren
This is the first character I've designed in a while that I really like the design of. She doesn't have a name yet though, I've just been calling her "Danger chick" LOL.

Most of the characters in this illustration are relatively new too!



I'm a bit surprised that the majority of these are male. I don't have anything against female characters and a quick look at my gallery proves that I tend to draw males and females in a 50/50 ratio. I guess when I write characters though I just tend to identify with or be attracted to the male ones.

Don't have to do this (and maybe you already have) but I just wanted to see this from some of you!!! And if anyone else wants to do this yeah go ahead and steal it too XD
Thanks everyone for wishing me a happy birthday! I'm really grateful you would take the time to remember me and wish me well. Thank you for being so kind and know that I had a great day yesterday!

NOW IT'S TIME TO FEATURE SOME GREAT BIRTHDAY ART.

Big shout-out to :iconstairfell:, :iconsacchim:, and :iconmotli: for putting together a gift which consisted of a crazy awesome scavenger hunt puzzle thing for me to solve and a beautiful artwork. o_0 
Check out the super amazing picture done by :iconsacchim: and :iconmotli:!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAYYYYYYYY (EYES EMOJI) by Sacchim
Not gonna lie I almost died after seeing this... The whole gift was really so unexpected and I can just tell the amount of effort and ~love~ put into it. A happy birthday would have sufficed but yall had to go and show me up with a scavenger hunt and this amazing piece of art featuring Thaddea and Lennox. Tears 


And a shout-out to :iconclovejar:, who drew me this:
Kay by Clovejar by alizawren
This is such a cute picture of Kay!! I really admire Clovejar's ability to draw him looking like that... he looks so smug and cute, as if he's thinking "I look so much better in Clovejar's signature style than I do in my own creator's." ;__; Thanks so much for this!!!


Thanks again everyone <3
:iconcryforeverplz:

Not to mention thanks DA for profile pages so that I can remember how old I am
And I'm getting all this nostalgia of being a kid, sitting at my computer, participating in online circles, and drawing for hours on end. Having just nuked my overflowing DA inbox again I feel like I might not be able to stay much longer on DA. Nowadays I admit I feel so nervous to draw at all because I'm afraid I'm wasting time. I feel pressured to produce something great to prove that what I'm doing is worthwhile. I thought these stressful feelings would end once I entered college, but there are still more expectations, expectations of getting an internship, of making money, of doing something that can stabilize the family.

I'm just trying to find the fun again in drawing. Recently it feels like drawing has just been about comparison and trying to get better (I'm not even comparing with other people anymore, I'm comparing with my past self and it still feels stressful) when what I really value in art is comics, stories, and characters. I kind of miss the days of being enchanted by people like Unknown-person, getting absorbed in their characters and works, wanting to learn more about their worlds and being inspired to create my own to share them with friends. 

I did sell at a (very small) convention for the first time this year, and it has made me realize how outcast I actually am from the anime niche. I'm gonna sell at another (small) one this summer, meaning I'll probably attempt to crank out some fanart illustrations before then, but after that I'm not sure I can pull through with doing these again lol.

I have a few projects I want to try to work on over this last summer vacation (since it's likely next year my time will be filled up with other things) so hopefully those will keep me going. What kind of things are you guys curious to see? Character refs, illustrations, comics? Anything regarding my projects at all? Leave a comment if you can!

Cleaning the bathroom... 
3. Are you good at saving money?
Yeah... Too good, probably. Time to open an investing account
4. Who are some of your favorite youtubers/online personalities?
THANK YOU FOR THIS QUESTION. I love Youtubers and online personalities because behind the scenes they are just independent creators who are doing the things they love! 
  • Recently I've been a fan of jacknjellify, which consists of two talented genius brothers who create a kids' cartoon together. Their content is really, really inspiring for me (weird as it sounds). Cary's channel is especially interesting because he creates videos about machine learning and other computer science-related topics.
  • Vihart is another one of my favorite Youtubers. Her videos are (mostly) about math but they're very quirky and overall fun and silly. I've thought about making math videos myself before, but I think, why try when Vihart already does them....
  • AVGN is classic. (Just like the stuff he reviews.) To be fair I am not that huge of a fan and I (obviously) have not seen all of his videos... In fact I've probably only seen like Idk, 2%. I'm not knowledgeable about old movies and things like that cause um, I'm not from that generation LOL. But I like his humor, and I love how he seems like a really chill person. (I'm not being ironic omg, when he's not acting he seems really cool and chill)
  • Creator of Code MENT, okay admittedly his humor is overkill sometimes, but other times it's... pretty freaking funny
  • I've followed Hank Green ever since I saw one of his Crash Course videos as an ad in the recommended section of a My Little Pony episode. That was back in like... 2011 I guess? John Green is cool too, but mostly only by extension of Hank Green's coolness :3 Nah I mean John Green is cool too lol
Okay I'm just going to list these this time, because otherwise the list would go on... XD I'm such a freaking nerd omfg!! Well what can I do. Don't be mean to me
5. What would you do if dragons existed?
Uhh oh shoot, I think I'd want a pet dragon, that'd be soo badass. I remember playing this game when I was little called DragonFable. That game was the shiz. I genuinely really liked it. But you had to pay money to own an adult dragon :c Haha but now Adobe Flash is discontinued so goodbye to Flash games
6. What's your favorite snack?
Er does candy count? Oh I really like Asian snacks like sachima and rice crackers! I somehow got tired of American junk food like chips and stuff. I like popcorn though
7. Do you like romance or action better in stories?
Romance. It sticks in people's heads longer, for sort of obvious reasons. 
8. How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Enough to eventually build a woodchucktopia and take over the world
9. What's the most embarrassing thing you've ever done in public?
Uh not going to go into detail about this
10. Would you rather switch your sex for a day or have wings for a day?
Oh man, I always talk about wanting to be a dude, so I assume all this time I spend thinking about it means I care about it to some extent. But I think being a dude might actually be pretty scary because dudes are... brash and stuff :'D Plus if I had wings I could fly. I COULD FLY
11. When's Half Life 3 coming out?
Umm I guess never.
12. Cinnamon or Butterscotch?
I don't have butterscotch very often... so I guess cinnamon?

Questions for others:

1. What's your favorite candy?
2. What was the last thing you gifted to somebody?
3. How do you feel about genetic modification of humans?
4. Bands are always making comebacks. What has been your favorite band comeback so far? (if none, what's your favorite band?)
5. If you had to pick a topic to protest about, what would it be?
6. Talk about one of the ways you grew in the last year.
7. What do you usually eat for breakfast?
8. If you had a tattoo what would it be of? (If you do have a tattoo, what is it of?)
9. What's your favorite kind of meat? (If you don't eat meat, what is your favorite fruit?)
10. What's your favorite myth?
11. If you were given the opportunity to participate in groundbreaking research, what scientific topic would you research? (Maybe you are! If so, what do you research?)
12. What invention would make your life a lot easier?


Geez 12 is a lot wtf lol

I'm not even sure if people would care to read these HAHA but here we go

Rules: Please provide a brief description of your story before starting. You can only answer the same character twice. You must provide an explanation as to why you picked who you picked for each question. The characters you use have to be original unless your story is a fanfiction; meaning, please answer for your own work and not somebody else's. Finally, tag someone you know! Make them participate in the fun! Or don't. It really doesn't matter.

Sigh I don't really know what story to use these days for these things but I guess 3 am since I'm supposed to advertise it and give it as much exposure as possible lol
3 am is about a bunch of teens who think they're cool and who stay up past their bedtime. And they encounter magic and fantasy. You can read it here!!


        1. Which character would you want to spend a night out with? (Note: this doesn't mean "which character would you date," this means "Which character would make the BEST date?")

What's the difference between which I want to date and who would make the best?? ;A; anyway whatever I'd date Lennox
1 by alizawren

        2. There's a Valentine's Day party going on in your world! Where would be the coolest place for it to be?

Probably in the the middle of the friggin woods


    3. Who shows up to the party drunk off their ass and dressed like Cupid?

Blake......

2 by alizawren

        4. Which two characters would people be shocked to see together at the party?

Uncle Isaac and April 

3 by alizawren

        5. Which two characters would people love to see together at the party?

The real question is who's attending this party anyway because none of these teens know anything about romance dj;kKSDJA 
But you know who I would love to see together at the party? Nicky and Lennox. So that's who's gonna be freaking seen together at the party.
4 by alizawren

        6. There's a Valentine's day swing dance going on and, assuming it is either before or after the party, all of your characters go. Who would be the worst at dancing?
Casimir unfortunately because he doesn't know how to have fun

5 by alizawren


        7. It appears one of your characters is not into the Valentine's Day spirit. He/she is repulsed by all the lovey-dovey actions of those around him/her, and goes on a rampage. Tables are flipped, drinks are spilled, MASS HYSTERIA! Who would this character be?

LMAO going on a rampage well that's pretty intense. I think Blake only cause he's a bitch

        8. Who is most likely to stay home and read romance novels (or watch movies, depending on the character and world)?

Thaddea. She doesn't leave the house often.
6 by alizawren


        9. Which character would hand out those cheesy box Valentines to all of his/her friends, despite being out of grade school?

Haima but only ironically and because he's triggered by capitalism
7 by alizawren


        10. Now pretend like all of the previous questions do not exist, and forget about the "only you one character twice" rule. Which of your characters ditched the Valentine's Day party and decided to kick back together at a singles' party?

After hearing about the news of the Valentine's Day party from Cole, who wanted to organize a fun and modest party-social-gathering-thing just to have fun, Blake scoffed and pushed up his glasses. "You know what would be the cool thing to do?" he asked Lennox, who listened reluctantly, only out of pity. The two were friends who connected practically at a spiritual level, being the only ones in the group who could regularly stand each others' presences and not suffer painful deaths. "We"--Lennox cringed at this pronoun--"should host a singles' party somewhere else and invite people to come." Blake beamed about his idea while Lennox looked like he was about to cry, but that didn't mean much because Lennox always looked like he was about to cry. "It's gonna be awesome, there's gonna be drinks and everything." "I think you're just jealous that Cole is knee-deep in bitches." "No, I'm not. Shut up Lennox. You don't know how to have a little fun. We're being like, rebellious. Overthrowing the social norms." "Is this just gonna be like some bro party where we sit around and play video games or...." "Who's single? We'll invite like... like, Nicky's single. See there, we've got chicks at our party too."

Kay
Kay Reference 2016 by alizawren
1. I want to make a comic of his backstory in the near future. How near is near? I don't know, within the next year or two? Meh, whenever possible
2. He's dead. He pretends to be a "guide" in the afterlife, but mostly is just awful and a troll like wtf 
3. While he was alive, he had a twin brother whom he shared a telepathic connection with; they could speak to each other simply through mind-reading and as a result became very close. 
4. Both of Kay's parents were scientists working in research.
5. Kay's mother only raised him and his brother for a few years; afterwards, she gave them to the care of a research facility which housed and performed tests on children. She only made occasional visits to them, visits which became less frequent as time went on
6. Kay's dad abandoned his mom as soon as he'd found out she was pregnant.
7. When he was living, he was very quiet and often felt shadowed by his twin brother.
8. He ended up killing his twin brother and then himself.

Nicky
Nicky by alizawren
1. Nicky is a sixteen-year old high school girl with a lot of problems and a lack of direction.
2. She's always considered herself a tomboy and a "tough girl" but recently she's been feeling very awkward and self-conscious about herself.
3. She meets her personal "fairy" in the middle of a forest, a magical (and naked ?? ?) creature that is supposed to help guide her and lead her to mature.
4. Nicky's name is actually spelled Nikki but ever since she was a child she spelled it as Nicky because it seemed better to her.
5. She likes movies and videos, especially ones with deep meanings.
6. She's the most academic out of her friends, which makes her feel uneasy.
7. She desperately needs girl friends. She's always hung out with boys ever since she was a kid and now, especially since her sister left for college, she Desperately Needs Girl Friends
8. Her character was inspired by a lot of things, but a notable influence is Genocider Syo from Dangan Ronpa

The character in question was the man below:
Klesis by alizawren

1. Klesis means "calling"
2. I've posted him in my gallery before, but this is the first time I've posted him in this form
3. He's extremely smart and studious. He loves to read and devotes his life to learning, having recently boarded a train to study at a university in a different country
4. He thoroughly enjoys math and science, his favorite field being quantum mechanics
5. He has a big heart and always tries to be kind to everyone, including strangers; however, because he hardly cries and because it is hard for him to empathize with others, he is afraid other people find him to be cold-hearted, which makes him sad.
6. He lacks affection in his life and deeply desires someone would hug him once in a while, although he is extremely resistant to physical touch at the same time
7. He believes in immortality and secretly hopes to prove its existence. He hides all related work from his colleagues and superiors
8. He has been obsessively studying the scientific work of this lady -> Trixi reincarnate

Go ahead and comment and ask questions about him I love talking about ocs heh

KAY! I don't care if he isn't real.  
2. Who is your number 1 (Fictional) Husbando or Waifu? (if you have one lmao/ if not favourite fictional character?)
Can it be my own character? Okay okay, I'll stop. (coughlennox) Well I liked Shintaro Kisaragi from Kagerou Project... Oh what about Zuko? 
3. Favourite Artist Movement? (i.e. Renaissance, Pre-Raphaelite, Impressionism and etc)
Haha the digital art movement maybe? Is that a thing? Or anime??? There was an anime movement right... Anyway, I like impressionism a lot.
