Demetrius
Artist | Varied
United States
My name is Demetrius Waters. My voice is really gruff and you'll be surprised how I sound in contrast to how I look. I have an affinity for art. I've been drawing since 1993 and have been improving traditionally and digitally. I'm a college graduate and I'm looking forward to making my career based on animation. I have three cartoon concepts I wanna broadcast on live television. One of them is called Andre the Angry Alligator. And yes. The profile picture is really how I look like, and if you got a problem with my countenance, then deal with it. I dislike shallow people who judge books by covers. Well anyway, if you have any other questions about me, I'll be honored to answer them. Just post a comment below. If you want to contact me in a different social media page, just click on my other sites down below.

Well when it comes to Sonic, I'm not that big of a fan of the franchise. Let's face it. The Sonic fanbase is the most infamous of all the fandom. Hell not even GTA or Call of Duty fans act that fucking immature. Excuse me if I sound blunt to you guys, but it's true. I know not all Sonic fans behave that way, but the majority are completely rabid, provincial, spoiled rotten, and not to mention dogmatic. However, there are certain characters that I have a certain predilection for, such as...
















As for the games...









I'm not much of a shipper, but as far as couples go...







As for couples outside of Sonic, this is the few I support.




Really though. Outside of those pairings (and a few other pairings as well), I really don't support any couples. I only ship pairings that are either the most logical or actually have chemistry. Other than that, I'm not the shipping type. Then here's the Nintendo series.

The Four Faces of Amy Rose
Since it's been 25 years since Miss Amy Rose has made her debut appearance in Sonic CD, I thought I'd draw all of Amy's designs throughout the years. Her classic design, her modern design, her Boom! design, and my design of her. I like Amy with longer hair, and I think it suits her the best of them all. I think I'm gonna do this to Sonic and Tails since they're a bit overdue for this one, and I'll wait another 4 1/2 months to do Knuckles. I might do one for Sally Acorn. But for now, this is Amy Rose over the years and my own design on her. Hope you staunch Amy fans would enjoy. ^^

Amy Rose's 25th Anniversary
Today marks the 25th anniversary of the debut appearance of a certain pink hedgehog that gained an obsession towards everyone's favorite blue hedgehog after being saved by said hero. I decided to draw her in her classic look since it's a real special day for her. Even though I'm not a huge fan of Mrs. Rose here, I support her as a character strongly and glad she's here to stay as long as Sega allows her. Hopefully, she'll get some better character development during the run as well. Glad to have you around for so long, Amy. You've come a long way. ^^

PS:Hang tight though, folks! There's still a few more drawings that I got of this pink hedgehog that probably won't be out until at least tomorrow or the day afterwards.

Crossover Shipping Blues
I've already made each drawing of both of them, but to celebrate the 25th anniversary of two of my favorite cartoons in one drawing, I decided to also make a crossover of two characters from each show, and what better way to do that then a crossover ship? You can see them both blushing in modesty. Don't these two just make such a lovely pair?

Sonic SatAM: Freedom Fighters In 25 Years
Here's another cartoon that debuted this day 25 years ago: Sonic SatAM. I'd figure that since many people have made anniversary tributes to the Sonic series in general, why not do one with the Knothole Freedom Fighters? Since it's unknown whether or not they'll appear in the IDW comics in the future, I feel they deserve some recognition here since they're more like family to Sonic. And before anyone asks "Where's Amy, Cream, Knuckles, Big?", I didn't include them for a reason. I'm only including the characters that Sonic grew up with during childhood. Aside from Tails, Sonic hasn't really grown up with any of the main characters of the series, and the FF really deserve the love here since hardly anyone ever includes them in their artwork. So yeah, 25 years of Sonic SatAM and the FF in my style.

Rocko's Modern Anniversary
I've waited for this one to come. So today is the 25th anniversary of one of the most memorable Nicktoons of all time. While I do like the other three original Nicktoons that came out beforehand, I felt that this is the show in which Nick reached its peak in. 25 years later, Rocko and co. are learning to affiliate in the 21st century. Heffer's texting on his new phone while munching on a burger, Filburt is listening to his new iPod, and Rocko is adjusting his new watch while Spunky (who somehow was able to live for 22 years) is chewing on his cell phone. Happy 25th anniversary to Rocko's Modern Life. Really can't wait for the movie Static Cling to finally drop.

25 Years of Animaniacs
So today marks the 25th anniversary of one of the most memorable cartoons of all time. I was just a toddler when this show first aired, but I have vivid memories watching this show at such a young age. I would've added the rest of the characters in this drawing, but I didn't have enough time for all of that, and my USB drive is running out of space. So I just decided to just stick with the Warner siblings instead. The reboot is set to drop in 2020, and I'm crossing my fingers and hoping it doesn't fail quality-wise like Teen Titans Go! and The Powerpuff Girls 2016 did.

You want to know my biggest pet peeve when drawing digitally? How when you color a certain spot using the paint bucket tool, it leaves a tiny, uncolored spot, even when you expand the selected spot, thus leaving you to decrease the brush size just to color in that tiny spot. Of course, this shit's inevitable, so I guess I gotta just learn to deal with it. :|
Sonic's New Hairstyle
"Do you like it, Mr. Sonic?"

I thought I'd go for the comedic side of my art. :lol:

So Sonic is now regretting making Cream his personal hairdresser. He wanted to look good on his imminent date (whoever you think he dates is up to you) and Cream gave him such a nice hairstyle, one he is none too pleased of. Already, there's two characters laughing at his hair since it looks too feminine on him, as Knuckles confirms. So there ain't no telling what impending humiliation Sonic's in for once he shows up in front of the other Mobians, including his date! Don't worry, Sonic. You'll live it down someday. :lol:

You guys know how most cartoon shows have characters that are drawn with four fingers? Well the popular reason I get is that they're much easier to draw than five. Well as a good artist myself, I found drawing five fingers much easier and much more proportionate. Four fingers on the other hand (see what I did there?) look much more disproportionate to me and takes much more time to do to get it to look more proportionate. I mean this style works on anthropomorphic animals (depending on their species of course), but to me, it's an anamoly and looks unnatural. So while I do draw four fingers on some anthropomorphic animals, I prefer to draw characters with five fingers, because to me, it's much easier. What do you guys think?
Here's a little word of advice to you folks: When someone is talking all nonsense about you or blurting out any other untrue bullshit regarding your actions or personality, don't bother trying to debunk their bullshit. Because honestly, none of that shit is worth it. If you quote any derogatory fallacy anyone throws at you regarding your actions and attempt to debunk them while using logic to back up your statements, they just won't fucking listen. They'll just respond with a childish terse reply, saying some shit like "Get over it!" or "Quit being butthurt" or any of that shit. Because they're too fucking delusional to concede their own mistake and try to accuse YOU of being childish. They're simply no goddamn point reasoning with them, because they just won't listen to/read jack shit you say/post. Believe me, I've been through this bullshit before, and I've learned to realize that some people are just too fucking childish to be reasoned with. No matter how mature you come across when trying to either reason with another person or call them out for their bullshit, it will still make you come across as either immature or a bully since whoever you call out will struggle to push you to a point where you've finally had enough of their shit and verbally body-slam them, which would unfortunately make YOU come across as the bad guy. So yeah. I'm fucking through reasoning with people now because of their childish behavior. I swear, this site, along with YouTube, probably has the most immature motherfuckers ever, and there is only so much equanimity I can retain. So my advice to you people is don't bother reasoning with them, because they would most likely not read any of the shit you post and will just reply to you with a childish response. Be mature about this, folks!
Team Rose in the Summer
With summer coming to a close, what better way to end the season with a summer theme picture of the Sega characters? Big's holding the umbrella to keep Amy here cool so she won't get sunburn, and Cream suddenly gained the talent to make such an aesthetic sandcastle, with Cheese adding the flags. Looks like they're having a rather relaxing summer.

I got a question to ask you guys: Do you ever get the premonition that someone online is out to get you and try to convince everyone to turn on you for minuscule incidents?

Since it's now been two years since I first made my account, I think it's time to show some love and appreciation to the artists that I've interacted with on occasions and let them know how much I appreciate them as artists and people. An incidental reason I want to give a shout-out to them is because of the fact that I realized that so many people who had accounts here (including several of my watchers) are now deactivating their account here in 2018, hence why this year has been extremely quiet compared to 2017. It's kinda sad, really. So many people in this site with work you enjoyed and you've formed a rapport to are leaving DA. So I want to let all of my watchers know how much I appreciate them before they decide to deactivate their accounts as well. Last month, I just discovered that Lucy (who goes by the username Panrill) deactivated her account due to personal problems. That's a shame too, because while I kinda understood why she had to leave, I was expecting her to hang out here all summer long. She had so much wonderful artwork and was a really nice person. I'm sure she would've been very appreciated of me giving a shout-out to her in this journal. :( (Sad) Oh well. I hope she's doing well.

Now before I start, I want you to know that I'm not gonna give a shout-out to ALL my watchers and the other people I watch. I appreciate every last one of my watchers, but I feel that these are the people I appreciate as both artists and people the most. So before I get into it, I'd like to list the people I've had the most conversations with and how they influenced me:

Folks I've had interesting conversations with

:iconfaerie-starv:

She's been on this site for about a decade now, and when I came across one of her groups, I'd figure that she seems like a pretty reasonable person to talk to. That and she has some cute artwork, and just like me, she's against all fanbrats no matter who or what they're a fan of. In fact, while she's a fan of old Sonic stuff, such as Sonic SatAM, even she will concede that it's had its fair share of flaws, and honestly, while I dislike how contemporary kids who are so smug to the point where they keep playing the "nostalgia" card in order to talk shit to the folks who grew up with things from the 90s and beyond, the fans of the 90s stuff aren't really much better when they behave in such a supercilious manner and even attempt to demoralize the kids of the newer generation for not experiencing the good stuff that were from their own decade. Maggie isn't either of them. She's more open-minded and can see the good and bad in both sides. I really wish I could meet more people who aren't very provincial. I also appreciate some of her advice to me, all of which are very helpful and alleviates whatever stress I suffer during my stint in this site. And for that, I appreciate you, Maggie. :) (Smile)

:iconagentsonic:

While she doesn't seem to be much of an artist, I still gotta give her props for that advice she gave me on my apology journal last month. She told me that even though it's great I'm admitting my mistakes, I shouldn't go and attack myself just for making them, and I should learn to forgive myself. Honestly, that's also something a lot of us should learn whenever we fuck up on something, because getting upset about it will only exacerbate the predicament. So I feel that this person definitely deserves a mention from me, because her words were so eloquent and very helpful. Thanks for the advice, girl. Hope you do better in the future as well. :) (Smile)

:iconroseofthenight4444:

She mostly makes stamps, but it was always a pleasure to read her conversations regarding her opinions. Even though we both disagreed on certain things, she does still respect my choices, and it was real interesting to listen to each other's conflicting opinions. I really like a person who gives me a more lucid reason as to why he/she disagrees with me, and that's what I really like about this girl. I'm also with her to keep the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise standing and hate to see it brought down by rabid fanbrats/haters.

:iconmadmitch131:

For those who don't know, this is my real life friend, Mitchel. We both met in college spring of 2013. He was majoring in designing while I was majoring in graphic communication. Ever since we met, we formed a rapport and always had interesting chats. We would both give each other advice whenever one of us would slip into a pickle and try to help each other out. After Mitchel lost his cousin two months ago, I reached out to him and helped him bounce back from his loss, and when I feared that the doctors were going to fuck up my appendicitis operation in June, he kept me from panicking and helped me face this bravely. Overall, he's the closest friend I've ever had in my life (aside from my childhood best friend Julian, but he doesn't have an account here, so...), which is fitting since we both lived most of our preteen/teenage years living as recluses. Mad respect for you, Mitch.

Now here are the top 5 deviants I appreciate both for their work and the people they are the most:

Top 5 Deviants I appreciate as both artists and people

5. :iconscifiguy9000:

He has some pretty funny artwork. I really like his style of work. His OCs are pretty cool and funny. While some of the lineart quality needs a little work, the way the characters are design are pretty distinctive. I would love to see more improvements. Also, he's pretty funny and is just real cool to talk to. Out of all the artists here in DA, he seems to support my work on my own cartoon the most and seems the most anticipated to see it when I somehow get it on television. Anyways, much respect to you, man. Keep up the diligence!

4. :iconyumiichu:

Yumiichu is a real good artist and is real kind and understanding. While it would be a stretch to say her work is original, it's the way she styles her FC's that makes her artwork aesthetic to most eyes. Her style is rather cute, and her color values in most of the characters is somewhat lavish. Listen, I know we don't really interact very much, but I really appreciate your work, and you also seem like an amiable person. Just keep up the good work! The same thing I can say about your sister....

3. :icontoystars:

She's the sister of :iconyumiichu:. Her style is a little bit similar to her sister's style, so there isn't much I can say that I ain't said before. I can say, however, that she has a distinctive way of drawing FCs. I like how she takes it to another direction and makes aquatic FCs, her character Aqua the Dolphin, in particular, has a very cute design. I'm surprised she don't have more artwork of her, because I would love to see her in different poses. I really hope you liked my present I drew you for your birthday in 2017, TOYSTARS. I really want to draw your FC Aqua one more time this year for your b-day, because you deserve a second gift. You're also pretty nice and cordial. And don't worry. I can wait as long as I can for your half of the trade. I can be patient. Just continue working on your art when you get the time. It's great to see how far you've come. :) (Smile)

2. :iconmushianimates:

The minute I saw this young girl's gallery, I decided to see what else she had in stores. Her artwork is pretty distinctive to say the least. I really like how she draws the eyes of her OCs. They really bring in that 1940s animation art style with a mix of that anime style. I really love the combo of the two. The way the anatomy is drawn on most characters is also very unique. I also love her animation, and really appreciate her desire to be a cartoonist someday. I think the only thing she needs to work on is trying to get that realistic style sometime soon, because she has a lot of potential, and I think she has all the time to improve. She's also a really nice person who has great gratitude for anyone who does anything nice for her. You deserve all those 1,000+ watchers, Mushi! You're a good artist with so much potential, and I hope you'll feel much better in the future. Pat pat

1. :icongothnebula:

Yep! Out of all the deviants on this site, I appreciate GothNebula the most. If you're reading this, Sam, I gave you a shout-out on this journal to let you know how much I admire you as an artist and as a person. After mentioning me and my work I drew for you as a birthday gift, along with a few others', I felt especially appreciated you would save everyone's work of art in your photobook to remember the artists by. So I felt it was time for me to reciprocate. It's amazing how this girl has come such a long way since 2012. Yeah, I know she was a bit immature in the past, but she's gotten better over the years and is still making good artwork. She's so creative and has such an interesting perspective on certain things that even motivates her great artwork. I like the design of her FC, Nebula the Hedgehog, and so far, her FC is gradually developing over the years. She's also a very fun person to chat with. Plus she has so much in common with me: We're both mildly autistic, we're both creative, we both have a different insight of certain things. Of course, we also have our differences, as she supports Sonamy while I support Sonally. But we don't let our differences alienate each other. Like I said before, I got nothing against Sonamy fans as long as they're not so damn bratty about their OTP. In conclusion, while she still needs to work on her stories, her artwork has improved over the last six years. Please don't stop doing more artwork, Samantha! You're so creative and talented, not to mention incredibly affable, which is why I have great respect for you as an artist and as a person. I'm very glad I got to know you. :) (Smile)

I appreciate all of you. You folks really have some of the most awesome artwork, and it's such an honor to know you all as people as well. I really like your works, and I hope you don't stop doing what you all love. Respect to all of you.

And for all the other watchers of mines I haven't called, I really appreciate you all over here. Don't think for a second I don't appreciate your work or your company. It's just that there's just so many of you that I don't have such energy to type in everybody's icon in this journal. So please don't feel as if I ignored you. So as a special bonus, I'm gonna list the folks who I appreciate as honorable mentions

Honorable mentions

:iconaurorathehedgehog132:
:iconrandinichole13:
:iconitz-me-again:
:iconbentigiri:
:iconhydrogothic:

Again, if I didn't list you here, don't get upset. I appreciate every last one of my watchers, and I'd also like to thank you all for the support and not losing any respect for me after my mistakes. You've really helped my profile grow and had such an interesting influence of me. I appreciate your gratitude, y'all. :) (Smile)
So I decided to make a journal of the artists whom I appreciate both for their artwork and as people. For a bonus, I'm also gonna give a shout-out to those who I've gotten in the most conversations with and how their words of advice really helped me. For those watching me, if I haven't mentioned you, please don't think I have forgotten you. I just have so many watchers that it would take me far too much time to list every last one of them. I appreciate every last of you! I just want to mention the ones I appreciate the most. Just keep your eyes peeled for that journal.
