dwaters220's Profile Picture
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.

Here's my other interests

Andre Arguing With Hubert (2018)
Andre is here arguing with his next-door neighbor Hubert while the latter's wife Margaret watches in dismay. Hubert (who is from the south) despises Andre with a vehement passion, and more often than not constantly antagonizes Andre. Andre equally shows great contempt of Hubert's abrasive attitude and is often seen bickering with the middle-aged man. Hubert also doesn't seem to have any respect for Andre's personal space and imposes on him whenever the latter does help the former out for once without so much of a "thanks". While the two often have a vitriolic rivalry towards each other, with Hubert being the instigator of the two's quarrels, Andre and Hubert have teamed up together to fix a certain situation or escape from massive peril (although most of the time, when Hubert makes it out safe, he would often leave Andre to suffer a certain type of danger just to save his own feathery skin).

Looking back on this one, I felt the one I drew in 2017 needed some improvement.

Andre Protecting His Cellphone From Nicky (2018)
So here's a drawing of Nicky making a grab for Andre's cellphone to use it for a test (I guess he doesn't want to risk Antonio) and Andre shoving the sole of his sneaker in his face to hold him back. Andre doesn't seem to mind Nicky very much, but he is incredibly irritated of Nicky's neurotic behavior and unhealthy habit to overreact over minuscule problems. In addition, Andre is also fed up with Nicky's clumsiness and inventions backfiring on him and Nicky. The latter does whatever he can to please Andre to win his friendship (as he reveals that hanging out with Andre makes him feel tougher), but he only ends up causing problems for Andre and only succeeds in annoying him. His own cellphone, Antonio, also shares Andre's irritation of Nicky's behavior. While Andre doesn't really see Nicky as a friend, he will defend him from anyone who picks on him and has stood up for him in many occasions.

Original drawing: Andre Protecting His Cell Phone from Nicky
Andre Annoyed with Paul (2018)
Here, we see a picture of Andre seething around Paul, who is more than not overly optimistic around the hot-tempered alligator. In other words, Paul is basically Andre's foil: the happy to Andre's angry, the stupid to Andre's intelligent, the childish to Andre's mature, the friendly to Andre's antisocial - you get the deal.  Paul may be kind and friendly, but he's also idiotic and incredibly immature, and because of his childlike interest, Andre is often in no mood to interact with Paul. Moreover, Paul's stupidity is the cause of most of Andre's problems, and Andre sees him as the bane of his existence because of this. Of course, no matter how obvious Andre makes it that he wants absolutely nothing to do with Paul, the latter is too obtuse to learn this fact and still thinks Andre is his friend. Although Andre wants nothing to do with the dimwitted buck, he would protect him from certain danger, although he would mostly try to get something out of return from Paul to do so. Moreover, Paul, in spite of his stupidity, still tries to see the good in Andre.

Original drawing: Andre Annoyed With Paul
Andre and Quentin - (Drawn Again)
So as you have seen in the last drawing, I have made improvements on the drawing I did last year and made this meme to juxtapose the two drawings. I'm sure you folks see the improvement of this piece. Keep in mind that when I drew the one in 2017, all I had were a sketchbook, some plain pencils, and a sharpie. Now with a laptop, a tablet, and Photoshop (I also have Paint Tool SAI, though I don't use it very often), I decided it's time to draw this again and make this better. So here are the improvements and I will be doing more of these with the others.

Andre and Quentin (2018)
This is Andre with his only friend Quentin. Unlike most of the other characters on the show, Quentin is far more calm and collected. He is the only character who can understand the issues Andre has to deal with daily and is always there to help him when in need. Andre reciprocates his loyalty to Quentin and would return the favor when needed. While the two don't always see eye-to-eye, they both remain loyal to each other and share each other's cynicism towards the majority of the characters in Apple City.

Art trade for PurpleFoxKinz. This is her FC Gavin the Hedgehog. There are two things Gavin likes: stars and playing his acoustic guitar. As a bonus, I decided to give his trusty instrument a more unique design. I made his guitar a different color and gave it a star design. Just imagine any song he plays. Hope you like it. ^^

This is Rubellite the Skunk singing a special happy birthday song to :iconkarneolienne:! I told you I'd have this submitted in to you by this special day! Sorry if I got this wrong! ^^; I'm still kinda a novice at learning how to write and speak in French. I just discovered there are four ways to say "Happy birthday" in French. The only language I can speak outside of English is Spanish. But anyways, I hope you enjoy this gift I drew for you, and whatever time it is out there in France, I wish you a happy birthday! ^^

Hey, folks! Sorry I was inactive for the last two days. I got food poisoning after eating at a local restaurant. It turns out that cheeseburger I ate was prepared by a chef who sneezed all over it and it make me sick to my fucking stomach! Apparently, that chef didn't learn jack shit about personal hygiene and food-born illness in culinary school. So I've been sick to my stomach for a couple days and I wanted to stay off the computer for a few days to avoid getting sick a second time. So I'm now robust and will continue my drawings and AT I owe other artists here tomorrow.
Well I'm still working on more artwork, and since this is almost my second year here in DA, I'd figure I should make a Q & A questionnaire so you folks will get to know the things I do and my experiences overall. So please, folks! Don't feel so nervous to ask me anything. But be cautious of what you ask though. Don't ask me such pointless and rhetorical questions. Ask me questions that actually matters. You can just post the questions below and I will answer them on the next journal I post. Peace out, folks!
Well, it's been such a crazy ass week for me so far. Looks like Demetrius narrowly avoided being reported or banned! I knew there were gonna be some assholes here in DA, but I never expected so many people to overreact over the most trivial bullshit ever! And some of these folks even try to beef with me over a certain misunderstanding. But fuck all of that! That shit's behind me now! Most of these folks just want me banned from DA, and some even threatened to report me for something I didn't even do. Fuck that! None of that shit fazes me. I ain't gonna let a bunch of overreacting teenagers chew my head off over the most minuscule bullshit ever, especially when they don't understand jack shit what's going on. Please keep in mind that even though I'm usually a nice guy, I will call others out on their bullshit without clemency when they end up shoving me well beyond my limits. While I'm more mature than to get into childish arguments with them, that don't mean I'm just gonna let certain assholes (especially immature teenagers) crush me like I'm some beetle. It don't work that way. Now I gotta be extra cautious of the next person I meet here in DA before It gets more out of hand. Because that's reality. Not everyone you meet will be friendly and respectful towards you, no matter how nice you try to be to them. Most of them even try to start bullshit with you for dumbass reasons too. Hopefully, no one goes Clay Claymore on my ass in the future. For those who want beef with me, I got a few words to say to you: Grow the fuck up! This ain't World War 3. Take that feud bullshit some place else, because I ain't down with that shit!

Now back to me. I'm feeling rather healthy now and hopefully it'll stay that way for the rest of the season and life. I got better hours for work, I got over appendicitis, and starting tomorrow, I'm gonna continue doing more art. I still got plenty of Art Trades I owe others and I'll be working on my own shit as well (that is if my fucking laptop stays healthy this year this time). So yeah. I'll be here as long as I choose to and I will continue to do more art. It's nearly been two years since my first account here and I'd like it to start off fresh that day. All I wanted to do in this conclusion is I thank all of my watchers for the support and not turning on me just for a few misunderstandings. I appreciate the respect as well. I just want to be more careful in the future, because most of these folks who attacked me for minor incidents are probably just trying to get a rise out of me. Anyways, peace out, folks!
Man the last four weeks has been crazy as fuck! And to think this whole controversy started with one drawing of one of the Sonic characters I submitted back in early May. I've been involved with unnecessary drama and unexpectedly received a diatribe just for trying to join a group last weekend. Man the Sonic fans lately really haven't been very kind to me no matter what I did, and none of them can seem to give me a break for once. They've been treating me like a beetle. :( I'm sorry I make these kinds of journals, but I just really have to talk about one more problem that I'm having to set all of this straight. I wanted to post this journal before I continue working on more art so I could clear one particular issue up with a lot of you fans. I wanted to clear up something else that those certain fans of Sonic have against my Sonic drawings, because some of these fans not only seem to have a problem with me as a person, they also have a problem with how I draw certain characters.

You remember when I said in my apology journal that I was accused of having a fetish for drawing a certain Sonic character a certain way? Well, one Sonic fan (not saying the name) told me that my drawings of certain female characters drawn with "huge hips" and certain male characters with "huge muscles" are unsettling and that the characters have "an air of innocence around them". This person apparently finds female characters with curvy hips and male characters with buff physiques "inappropriate", and that just confused me.

And this is where I ask this significant question. How exactly does drawing certain female characters with shapely hips and drawing certain male characters with thick muscles strip away their "air of innocence around them"? How is it considered "inappropriate" too? Now you folks remember back in late 2016 when I made that journal of ten adjectives to describe the Sonic fans in a nutshell? Yeah, one of the adjectives for this particular example is "nitpicky"!

So apparently, drawing any type of female curvy or any type of male character muscular is considered a "fetish" or "oversexualizing them for your own pleasure". This is what really annoys the fuck out of me with Sonic fans like these. They nitpick over the propriety of the characters' anatomy. So whenever they see other Sonic characters drawn with different anatomy styles, as opposed to their original anatomy design, they flip the fuck out and accuse the person of "oversexualizing" the character. No! If I was "oversexualizing the character because I have a fetish", I'd draw the character naked and exposing a certain inappropriate body part, as well as dress that character in a rather skimpy outfit.

I do NOT draw certain Sonic characters with a different anatomy because I have a "fetish"! I do it because I felt that the Sonic characters need more distinctive anatomy designs. Because I'ma be honest, the anatomy of the Sonic characters are all homogeneous. They're just drawn with simple oval torsos with stick-figured arms and legs with oversized hands and shoes. The only disparities are their heads, skin color, and choice of clothing. I just simply decided to tweak their anatomy a bit to make them appear more diverse. I gave Knuckles some large biceps to make him appear more badass. I mean he is a brawler after all, and I thought I'd make his design more hardcore in my style by making him appear muscular. I gave Blaze some shapely hips and bust to give her more of that mature, feminine charm, you know, have her appear more elegant to balance out her tomboyish traits. Plus she's fully clothed and I never even made her bust that huge either. I just made them more shapely and prominent. How is any of that shit considered "inappropriate" as opposed to "innocent"?

Apparently, according to these kinds of Sonic fans who want them to have "an air of innocence around them", any female character who's drawn with shapely hips and an ample bosom, even when they're fully-fucking-clothed, are "oversexualized" (never mind the fact that Rouge the fucking Bat is already designed with shapely hips and a large bosom to begin with). I don't draw ALL the female characters this way. Notice how I haven't given Cream the Rabbit this anatomy in any of my drawings of her, because I know she's still a six-year-old girl who hasn't hit puberty yet. So it would be wrong for me to give her or any other female character under the age of 12 prominent boobs, even if they were small.

And while we're on this topic, one of the other fans even had a conversation with one of my RL friends with an account here, and my friend told me that Sonic fan doesn't like my own feline cartoon character because....of her anatomy! That's just what my friend told me. The Sonic fan he had a conversation with didn't like how I drew my feline OC with an ample bosom and wide hips, because it apparently associates with the "slutty lady" trope. Here's another thing that annoys the fuck out of me. The misuse of certain words. I really wish people would pick up a dictionary these days. A "slut" is a woman who has had sexual intercourse with many different casual sexual partners. So unless I decide to make my own character have sex with other men (which you won't see explicitly in this cartoon), then she's not a fucking slut! For fuck's sake, she's fully-fucking-clothed! Here's a link of her for those who are curious:

See?! Nothing is revealing! How does she even look remotely "slutty"?

As for the complaint that I've gotten by giving certain male characters "huge muscles", I only gave those to Vector and Knuckles. As I said before, I made Knuckles appear muscular to make him look more badass and hardcore. As for Vector, he's the muscle of the trio, so I simply thought I could emphasis that by making his arms bulkier and his chest wider. I mean sure, I made Shadow appear somewhat muscular too, but I still kept him slightly leaner. I never did that with the other male characters! Instead, I just simply make their arms and legs slightly thicker so they don't appear too thin. I really don't change the anatomy of the characters too much.

Some of the female Sonic fans seem to have a problem with the way I draw female characters, saying I have some sort of fetish and oversexualize females for my own pleasure. Oh yeah, because how dare I give a certain female character a more elegant anatomy that would complement her maturity and/or beauty. Concurrently, a few others also complain about me giving the male characters "huge muscles". Yes, because giving certain male Sonic characters bulging biceps is all of a sudden an egregious sign of stigma that goes against the apparent "air of innocence" around the Sonic characters. Meanwhile, these same fans don't say jack shit to the guys who draw most of these Sonic characters in the nude revealing inappropriate body parts.

You know what? while I'm on this topic, let's digress for a moment and talk about the so-called "innocence" of the franchise for a minute, shall we? The franchise and characters have an air of innocence around them, huh? Yeah, because an anthropomorphic bat seducing other guys for their jewels (as well as her exposed cleavage) definitely exemplifies innocence impeccably. Yeah, I definitely can see that. Hahahahaha. No. And so does a black hedgehog (who, need I remind you, has a game of his own rated T for Teen that makes even the Tony Hawk games look more squeaky clean in juxtaposition and can almost even rival the Grand Theft Auto games) using lethal weapons to kill his enemies. Yep, that's another obvious sign of "air of innocence around these characters". Hahahahaha. No. Also, need I remind you that the whole Sonic Adventures 2 game (hell a few other games as well) has tons of radar-breaking innuendos? (just take a look yourself:…) But naw, none of you folks notice any of this shit, because the characters of the whole Sonic franchise apparently have "an air of innocence around them". Hahahahaha. No.  In all seriousness though, the only character of the whole Sonic franchise that truly has any genuine "innocence" is Cream the Rabbit. The Sonic franchise and many of its characters can be a lot of things. "Innocent" is hardly one of them.

But I think I've digressed enough. In conclusion, the whole point of this journal was to clear the bullshit of the artist named Demetrius here having a "fetish" for drawing female characters with curves and male characters with bulging biceps. I swear, you just can't do jack shit anymore to please certain Sonic fans! I'm sorry I've been really angry lately. I'm just tired of dealing with most of these belligerent Sonic fans who want to try to beef with me over trivial topics! It's really causing my sanity to dissipate. Of course, that's probably what I get for being a part of the Sonic fandom in the first place. So I guess it's my own damn fault! Listen, folks! I can take criticism, and if I do screw up on a character's anatomy or if something looks a little off, I can simply take a second look and realize my mistake (and if I had the chance, I'd fix that mistake). But when most other females overreact over the most trivial bullshit such as this, it's another thing that annoys the fuck out of me. But while we're on this topic, I want to know the thoughts of some of you other female artists. Do you like how I draw most female characters curvy? Are you uncomfortable with me drawing most females that way? If you are, I would love to hear your issues on it. Do you feel it's disrespectful towards females? If you do, please provide reasons why. And what are your thoughts on me drawing certain male characters muscly? I'd also like to hear some of you guys' thoughts about this controversy. I don't want to upset any of your females out there. I just want to know so I can try to understand the problems you have with it, because some of the others just won't get off my back about this shit and it aggravates me to no end. Feel free to leave your thoughts down below. I would love to hear them.
So the operation was a success. I no longer have that acute pain in my abdomen, and my appendix is now in a fucking jar. I felt pretty drowsy after the surgery, but at least I no longer was in pain after this. After I woke up from my surgery, most of the guys I knew were there: Mitchel, Marcus, Jeffrey, Kirk, and Joaquin were all there. The nurse was also very kind and gave me some of my favorite refreshments. I got to spend the night at the hospital and had a surprisingly good rest. Now I'm fresh out of the hospital and, while still feeling a bit drowsy, am recovering well. Hopefully, I'll regain the energy to post some more artwork here in the future, and these rude motherfuckers would finally get off my back and give me a break for once. I just hope I stay healthy for the rest of my young life.
