*** Class of 2016 Graduate ***
Hello everyone I am jedininja97, a movie, music, comic book, and collector enthusiast. I am a "jack-of-many-trades" guy of many interests in games, music & movies. I’m also an artist at heart, and I dream of traveling the world. In the amidst of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I am doing my best to help everyone that I can during these tough times.
I'm a big gaming fan of many Nintendo, Namco, Sega, Microsoft, Sony, Konami, Capcom & Square Enix games. I am a Nintendo and Sony Playstation guy. Examples of video game franchises I like include Mario, Metroid, & Zelda. I am also a fan of the Bloons TD franchise by Ninja Kiwi. Other game franchises I am a fan of is Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Pokémon, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Castlevania, Resident Evil, Tony Hawk, Call of Duty, Battlefield & the Animal Crossing games.
Having first joined DA as mariozelda97 which was my first account way back in July of 2013 that is now abandoned, this is my 2nd account (Note: I used to be “marioandluigi97” until I changed my username to “jedininja97” on May 6, 2020). The reason why I made another account is because my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 which has my "mariozelda97" was stolen (The Tablet) when I was at school back on Sept. 27, 2013. I felt that I knew how much I had made a mistake on that day. I remember the days today about how it has entertained me so much, although considering how my life was on my first DA account I was a completely different person with a different personality back then in my first year of Deviantart. I posted a journal about the loss of my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 an exact year later.
That problem was solved for me in mid-August of 2016 when my mom gave me her Samsung Galaxy note 10.1 tablet that is now mine. Unfortunately as of 2021 it is horribly outdated and I actually a got new tablet that replaced it almost completely, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7. I say almost since I still use the Note 10.1 to do digital art. I can now utilize my entertainment again with the Galaxy Tab A7 that I first started with the Galaxy Tab 2.
For better it would be a good idea to explore this account, ”jedininja97", which I use DA on:
• Samsung Galaxy Tab A7, the most powerful device I have in terms of everyday use.
• Gold 32GB iPod Touch 7th Generation
• Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (I don’t use DA on there obviously not anymore, but despite having the Galaxy Tab A7 this is my current tablet to do digital drawing on since the A7 has no stylus and I don't plan to draw on the new tablet. I know that the Galaxy Note particularly outdated since as of May 10, 2020 it no longer has Wi-Fi due to its age, which had to be taken off. It’s 9 years old! It’s also got battery issues. As of 2021 I started doing digital drawing less often since I started doing traditional drawings again. However as of June I plan to do digital drawings in a regular basis again.)
My 1st DA account I used from July 17, 2013 to the days my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 was stolen on September 27th, 2013. There isn't much art there, but it takes me back to my early DA days.
