My Bio
Welcome to my little corner of DeviantArt!

My artistic tastes are eclectic, but I enjoy painting original OS-tans (humanizations of computers and operating systems), fanart of favorite series & games, landscapes and general portrait stuff. I work mostly in my own homebrew style, although I'm constantly striving to evolve and improve my work. Currently trying to pay more attention to anatomy and more varied body types. Mostly work with digital painting these days, though I still put pencil to paper on occasion and work with watercolors when I find the time and patience to. As well, I do some writing and photography – you'll find those works scattered among the rest of my art.

I'm pro-copyleft and the majority of my works are released under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 license.

Who's still here?

Who's still here?

I'm not dead but I've moved onto several other planes of internet existence (Discord, Tumblr, various vidya games). Does anyone use this site anymore?

Yearly Reminder of my Continued Lurkerdom

BET YOU THOUGHT I WAS DEAD, I'm not I've just been spending too much time on tumblr. Is anyone still here? If so drop me a note, I miss my old DA friends. :(

I'm Still Alive

I'm Still Alive

If just barely. This semester is kicking my butt and I'll be glad when it's over... I'm still drawing too, but sporadically ... mostly Fallout stuff since that's my current obsession. I really should post them here at some point...

:iconprincesscelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:A very good day to you, human. I come to you on your day of birth with greetings... and thanks.
:iconcelestia-plz::iconsaysplz:My good subject Pinkie Pie told me she had taken to congratulating some humans on their birthdays, but even she has her limits. So she asked us for a bit of assistance... and for such friends of ponykind, we feel it right to provide it.
:iconhappycelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:It is thanks to people like you that our land of Equestria, our very world, exists like it does. It is your friendship with us that gave us life. For that, we will forever be grateful and cherish you.
:iconcelestiapleasedplz::iconsaysplz:And so, allow me to wish you happiness, peace, prosperity and fulfillment! My hope goes with you that you suffer no hardship in the year ahead, but should a challenge befall you, I am certain your courage and skill will see you rise to conquer it!
