do you have a Fetish?(its okay if you do)
yeah..I have a fart fascination. although I'm rather casual and tend to be subtle about the subject matter than most people. and basically, I find it funny and the concepts of flatulence being used as a,biological martial art, unconventional weapon and power had me interested when I played games like Oddworld and Tekken 3 and watch cartoons and animes that get away with this sort of thing. another example I was interested in mainly because of skunks and the thing they always do with their gas/musk in cartoons and video games.i think skunks are a crowning glory for this type of humorous power. but overall, I like to think everyone has a tame fetish and likes to express them in their artwork and literature, but that does not make them bad people.
what was your first favorite anthro skunk character on DA?
Taffy the blue skunk, to those of you who didn't know Taffy was a skunk girl who uses's her gas as for both defense and humor she was created by an artist by name of 4kt, she was going to be part of a webcomic series he was working on. she was a very popular character since 2009 until 2011 he deleted all the taffy art because he did not like all the attention she gets out of all his characters and he noticed why. so 4kt wanted to stop drawing her and tell his watchers to stop commissioning or requesting art on the character and he did it in a not so bright way(he wrote a stern journal) so this kind of exploded taffy's Pandora box of crazy fans that never respect his decision, never left him alone about it to the extent that he can't not even draw the character or mention her name anymore. (he has an another account but I'm not telling you if gonna flame him on it, okay?)

so you're born in the 90s?
yes I was born in 1994 but I'm a little bit of both old school and new school
what inspired your developing series MUTTS & CLAWZ
it started out as a "cats vs dog" concept between 2012-2013, alas when I watch cartoons and movies new inspiration come to me every day developing my project even more. its meant to be a "military adventure and spy capers meets the cartoony madcap slapstick and crude humor world of anthros"
what inspired your characters?
my inspiration for my characters usually come from both my imagination and various sources from cartoons, videogames,movies,famous artists, DA artists, etc but the inspiration for Fido (my fursona) came from the fact i think i look like a Jack Russel terrier everything in my real life apply's to my character

CLUBS I AM IN:
my otaku tests:fandom list:
RULES for my account:1.
if you don't like certain content of my work. please ignore them and don't comment. i know the said certain amount of my content is not gonna be for you and thats okay.2.
hate or troll comments on the artwork will be addressed by me.3.
spamming will not be tolerated.4.
fair constructive criticism is welcome and greatly appreciated.5.
Don't stoop to the hater or trolls level and insulting them back all the time as a way of defending me. just ignore it or address it maturely or properly.
No, I don't plan to go on these for a while. However, if I did I'd let you guys know. The fact is let's face it hiatus sucks, but it's still a good strategy to get some R&R from drawing, animating, writing literatures, and such. Hiatus occurs when a creator like you or me decide to take a break from their artwork. Due to art or writers block, vacations, day jobs or night shifts, IRL events, etc. these can last for a long time or short time or indefinitely. I'm sure there some of you that wants to become full-time artists. Unfortunately, welcome to a grayscale area called RealityCheck. We all can't expect to create the next big masterpiece if it takes a lot of time, days, months, or maybe years to get done. So when all creativity and resources are exhausted that's when a hiatus comes in. But that still doesn't mean you cannot communicate with your trusted friends. That's when social media or Skype is necessary for that.
trolls and hatersYeah, it's time I touched a very big subject most people face on the internet these days trolls and haters . everyone has them trolls are the usual people that says usual "this sucks" no matter what you do they tend to find it intolerable like talent,value,friends,fetishes and perhaps the best messages to respond "if you don't like it don't look at it" or just don't respond to them at all. otherwise, showing drama to the troll would just make the situation worse because they obviously got a response from you. haters, however, are the biggest recurring conflicts.they just try to discourage you, tear you apart of your friends and what you like. just want to watch you fall either by calling you or your friends out or making a commentary on him or her on a blog site believe me I seen this happen to a couple friends before and I think that's unnecessary in our society giving them a bad image and harshly judged, pointing fingers and labeling them. but what usually
depressionWell guys it's time I talk about a special topic that's been going on depression it's one of those things my friends suffers always trying to get through painful situations but stress and anger and sadness sets in trying to take over making you think your life isn't worth living anymore, you think on the negative side of the situation and think you made a bad image of yourself. those are the few things that are considered depression it could be that that persons having a very hard life or it could be a medical condition/syndrome that that person is born with. if you happen to be one of those people let me tell you this your depression can be beat it usually takes true caring friends to heal your wounds, medical treatments to cure you, and lastly keep your chin up and make the best of your situation and you might break your depression. you can't let depression get to you no matter how bad the situation is and suicide is not the answer it not only hurt you but it
Guilty Pleasurehi, fido here. let me ask you a question is there something that you like that a majority of people hate? like say a tv show,video game, movies, music, humors, fandom, and such or perhaps you might like em as a kid, teenager, and still like em today as you grew older or you look back on said thing and think "ugh! this stuff is terrible why do I like it!?" sometimes you often ask yourself "was there something wrong with me?"the answer is no it's something each of us has that something is called a Guilty Pleasure. for example, some cartoons, tv shows, bands, fads, humors, and video games that some people often bashed on a lot that I still love. despite the fact that I was born in the '90s you might think I like being trapped in the old school stuff. on the contrary, there is also today's cartoons, video games, and tv show i also really love that keeps my balance of both old school and new school in check. so you know who's opinion is correct? technically no
Thoughts and Understanding
Understanding internet drama
hello and I'm Fido Artz, and I'm sure you might have experienced this before then you know what Internet drama is. Internet drama is an ongoing situation these days. where these often occur in comment boxes, forums, and even chat rooms where 2 or more people get in an argument with each other rather than to leave it each to their own and Live and let live. instead wants to debate the topic on a negative scale. or just want to start a flame war with a fandom, or even to judge people and make a mockery of their interests. I'm sure we have all been there before. and these not only happen between a troll or a hater, but also between friends who get into disagreements too.
sometimes these often lead the victim being attacked by either haters or trolls. and have no choice but to deal with stress, anger, and depression. wondering what to do in this situation. next thing you know, the argument gets reduced to insulting one another, hacking into people's account, unjustified anti-wiki entr
Thoughts on Fetish content
Hello and this is Fido Artz. And... yes, I share my thought on a topic about. Fetish art, Also, if some of you guys came to see some pictured examples of the subject, me giving a negative commentary, or find out why I like crude humor. Well, my sincere apologies to displease you. Because this topic is about every art or literature fetish-based content that exists, how it gets handled in the Art communities, Writing communities, fandoms, and how (at least, In my opinion) it should be handled.
Now, I'm sure some of you are asking why I decide to talk about such an unusually uncomfortable or taboo topic? Well, it because it's a fascinating topic of considerable interest around the internet to a majority of people on this site. Fetishes is a strong and unusual fascination to something that each of us creators like a lot of times like and usually expresses them material in the form of a video, artwork, literature, with any weird subject of interest to entertai
Thoughts on Fandoms
Greetings Everybody, and I'm Fido Artz and this is my thoughts on Fandoms. fandom's Are Communities that are Based around a Huge majority of People with a common Interest in a television show, movie, video game, book, or other franchise based media. when a franchise becomes very popular it immediately gets a huge following of loyal fans. creating a fandom or a fanbase and, out of those fanatics there are creators or artists that make anything supporting their franchise they fell in love with. fanfictions, fan art, fan characters, FMV, and even fan animations. sometimes fan content is what keeps a franchise afloat.
Common Fandom's like say furries, bronies, Trekkies, and Cosplay tend to be the biggest recurring Fandoms in the world. that have a huge following. which earns them their own conventions (or cons for short) where people of said fandom's can hangout, share ideas, participate in activities and panels, and even meet up with not only with mutual frie

And the audience is what it’s all about."

The vast knowledge of love found in the heart is the true Second Coming and the true savior of all mankind"

We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.”
