Sweet Vanilla Butter Pancakes! We have hit 600 watchers!

Another landmark on this community here on the great kingdom of Deviantart! But with 600 watchers comes a time I introduce myself , like all friendships go . After all, you cannot support and trust someone without proper introductions.

Alrighty-O.



New Id Art by BubbleDriver



Who am I?


My name is BubbleDriver. I prefer to be called Bubble, B.D or Bubbles and on the rare occasion 'Senpai' to someone who Voluntarily calls me that name. I frankly feel uncomfortable being referred to anything higher. I am first and foremost a friend and feel uncomfortable once people relegate me to a being of higher standing as it was what I was subjected to in real life.

Being placed on a pedestal means I am segregated from my friends , that I am somehow 'better' in every other aspect . I hate to break it to you wonderful people but I am a human being like the rest of you :) A very mortal, human of Chinese descent who resides in Singapore.

 I want to talk to you all, make goofy jokes, discuss sensitive topics and make stories and art like the rest of you. And frankly, I can only do that without the added  pressure of being relegated to a post I have no desire for.I am no better nor lesser than you. <3 What I want is to be Your friend. Sometimes if some of you are younger, I do not mind the endearment of 'Senpai' though I lack the confidence in myself to bear such a great title. You guys make me blush. You all obviously see the best in me I cannot see.But I do in some way feel responsible for those of you guys who are younger and who look up to me.

I make mistakes, I poop and fart . I am also very imperfect. Because I am a human being.

Also, I do have a forum for any questions you miiight want to ask me for! :)
----> bubbledriver.deviantart.com/jo…

But all these aside , I love comics. Man, comics. I love telling stories. Most of my stories feature fantasy and role reversal. I also enjoy telling traditional myths from a different perspective or 'Disney'-fying  stories.A story does not have to be harsh or unkind to prove a point. I love comics. This will turn into a huge journal entry to tell of my great romance but it is to say three of my greatest loves are 1.Storytelling 2.comics 3.Art

When you tell a story, you create whole worlds , whole people , creatures from your imagination. And that is what makes us so important and powerful.

I ALSO enjoy writing long journal entries on my day, tutorials, or cool stuff I think you awesome folk might be interested in! :)

Also, I am a huge Gaiaonline addict. Dem avvies are so kyoot. I also like Transformers, Sailor moon, and several other cartoons and anime.

I am 23 years old and live in Singapore. I am quite friendly, I love meeting new people so long as they are not bullies or arrogant or judgmental.

As I mention. All of my stories , and pictures have been commented By many Of you lovely people to strike a powerful note in YOU. Be it for nostalgia, be it a powerful message and ....it makes me happy . Because I seek, through my stories, my art, and writing to hereby promote the following.To unite people towards Anti-bullying, autism awareness and also a shared appreciation for nostalgia and wonder through my works ! :)   


WHY

If you watch me for sometime now,you would have realized I talk often of my past.It's old news to some of you guys that I was a victim of abuse and still suffer to date from the aftereffects of such actions due to such creatures.

Throughout my life, there has not been a moment of peace.And I do not wish to see anyone, especially my friends subject to being stalked, being harassed, being emotionally or mentally manipulated. Or subject or physical mental or emotional abuse.
There is a reason why I choose not to forget.My abusers got off scott-free,remain at large and receive no recrimination for their actions. I choose not to forget because forgetting means complacency. Complacency equals someone else getting into an abusive relationship or thinking that such horrendous acts done to them is justified.Complacency means someone out there committing suicide because they feel hopeless, that they have no one who empathizes with them or knows what they are going through. Complacency means someone not realizing what they are doing to someone they hold dear might be abuse and is not love or friendship. Complacency means horrible monsters allowed to take the sparkle out of an innocent's life for their sick pleasure. Complacency is turning your back on someone who might pleading for help.

However, what I do not stand for is going on a witch hunt on such people. Like snakes and adders, any further touch will poison you.But I do offer a forum for offering of comfort and solace you are not alone.

bubbledriver.deviantart.com/jo…

 And Bullying and abuse feature predominately in many of my stories.       

I  hope through my stories to show a bit of color, a bit of wonder that people once commented existed from a happy time in their childhood.It is my wish that future generations have a bit of what we had.A more hopeful,gentler, wonder-filled present.

I also wish to showcase and bring forth mental conditions and acceptance and support for people who have them .However, I choose to focus primarily on autism because of personal family reasons which I will disclose later on. 

Some one has got to do something. Maybe I am naive.Maybe I am idealistic or a fool to try. But I want to leave this world knowing I tried a bit to make it a safer, happier, brighter place for my loved ones. And so I do it through every story.   
 

What I stand for.

 To stand for those emotionally abused, I stand for the innocent whose names have been slandered for someone's sick pleasure and greed, I stand for those unable to speak up. I stand up for anyone who is/was subject to emotional,verbal,physical,mental abuse.

I stand for pure love, joy and wonder in artwork and spirit.
I stand to put an end to bullying in all shapes and forms.
I stand to make society a bit more aware of autism .
I stand to eradicate hate in all forms.
I stand for a just,inclusive society, without judgement,hate , prejudice and segregation due to race,gender,sexuality, social status and religion.
I stand for Autism-awareness.
I stand for a better happier, more  hopeful and imaginative society.

MY MISSION


To eradicate bullying. To spread awareness on Autism. To promote imagination, wonder, love, kindness and peace.

An Invitation.

Case? Everyone who has been abused, bullied...has a different experience but what makes us all united of our desire to not be abused or bullied or anyone going through what we have gone through. Or maybe I am a fool or incredibly naive, but I wish to change the world's ignoring of this societal issue through my stories. I wish to represent the underdogs in my characters. I don't wish to just raise hope but to empower victims so they will need no longer be ones and tell others such behavior 'bullying/abuse' is  WRONG.

It's nice to see someone wanting to make a change in the world, and actually trying to not just saying it, you definitely did empower me and I am sure other people to, even if one can't change the world to what he/she wants, it's better of trying then just sitting and hoping, and even small changes matter, I hope you can achieve your goal.

Getting bullied is scary. It tends to change our emotions til we end up taking everything too seriously. :/

and then drowning all the bad feelings with practically anything funny or nice on the Internet. Well, that's my case anyways. Good buddies also help raise our spirits very much. :3

Yes I feel you buddy, I am in the same case, just staying in all day looking at videos to wash the other emotions away, but in my case I will feel bad for not doing anything and then I make art, look at others people work and get sad that I am not like them, I agree with you friends is the best medicine for this case, just in case you feel any sad -highfive- <~> sorry if I am awkward(I always worry so much when I talk to people even online._.)

Do not worry about your artwork, even if you think it looks bad, it could just be an artstyle. Sometimes I look at old successful shows with not very good or great artstyle, but they are still successful. :3

Of course, it's kinda difficult nowadays due to competition and people trying to get better. But once in a while, intentional bad artstyle and deliberate use of bad grammar is funny to see for a change after seeing too many epic/beautiful artwork/stuffs. XD

and I guess you need not worry too much about being awkward in conversations. Sometimes I feel that way but I try to change that, and probably tend to talk too much. Derp. XD

I feel you, always ending up talking so much, I love how you are like "your stuff is shiet...but unique"xDDD, it's hard for me to focus on the art only when I have to make the music and programming, and I haven't even started animation yet, it's going to be bad but like all beginners you have to fail first to get better, I just worry that I am doing a bit too much for me to handle, most people first games are like a ball platform or some silly short stuff, but I want to write the story make different stages etc, (but of course it's going to be short) the thing is I don't know how to get better.-. no tutorials help, I saw your stuff and it's great._. how did you get so good? Just by making stuff on your own? Because I see other people and I am like "WTH NO TUTORIAL CAN TEACH YOU THAT">-> I am talking to much againxD, I was trying to be short but I guess that's mission impossible, what's hard for me the most is that I think something but when I try to draw it it looks nothing like how I imagined it.Sorry I am being annoying writing so much <-> Have a  great day.-. and thanks ^-^

Hmm, I too plan to be an indie game developer one day too focusing on graphics, animations, music, story, programming, etc but it's definitely not an easy path.

Most works on me page are fanarts by one of my favourite indies, Jun'ya Ota. He is legendary for (not his artwork XD) his music(mostly music), story and characters(mostly characters too). Also famous for drinking loads of beer to improve his musical skills. He said it himself. XD
Also one fanart by another indie I look up to, Jeff Vogel. Great story in Geneforge. A mashup of Sci-fi Medieval Fantasy sumthing sumthin' lol. You know, loads of biological weapons like living turrets, doors and landmines.
And I gather inspiration from other games and by watching a YouTube channel called ExtraCredits, giving tips for game programmers whether they are indie or working for the AAA industry.

Also, my artworks still aren't that good. I still try harder to improve. Practice makes perfect. :D
And for programming, I am derping at Scratch, ultra basic tool for games and I can hardly program an arrow to destroy a knight. And I don't even type code lels.
And my animations are not that good either. Need more time to practice. XD

But anyways, good luck! You will definitely become much better in years to come and one day, you will be proud of your future project. :D

p.s. I don't find all the writing annoying. Look at me, typing so much. XD

I guess I am kinda the same to be honest, many of my stuff are inspired by others, with some changes or mixes,I think if you plan to be without a team its best if you focus on one aspect and when it's done you go for the other, so for example focus on learning graphics and when you are done and learned you go for music, and don't say your art is not good>-> it's great in my opinion, and don't think I am a good programer neither, I am probably at your level, and wow for once I didn't write that muhxD, DONT respond this time poor Bubble Driver will have comments of our conversation instead of her fansxD I can tell you like to write but you can resist I believe in you <->xD, wish you the best of luck. :E
