I'm not usually one to enter contests like this, but if I manage to get a portion of these points... I might as well.
Here's the journal for details.
Why I'm no longer as active on DeviantArt...Well, this was long overdue. Since maybe a couple of years ago, I've taken more than several hiatuses from DeviantArt. I'm no longer on here as much as I once was, uploading, like, one piece of art every few months?
Well, the truth of the matter is, I've slowly but simply grown quite tired of it. Don't take this the wrong way, but I feel like maybe DeviantArt isn't the right place for me anymore. I've been on here for nine years, and in that time, I've become a much better artist than I was when I first joined. Try taking a look at all of my early stuff - it's... wonky, to say the least.
Like I said, I still upload a piece of art to DA here and there, but now, I'm most active on Instagram and Twitter. Both my accounts on those pages are mannysmyname, so, to anyone who's interested, please give me a follow!
In other news...
-I'm still working on my webcomic, Adventures of Henry the Mole. For now, you can read it only on SmackJeeves, but I'm working on bringing it to other
Big things coming!That's right! Big things are coming this way, namely...
My Skeeter! spin-off, Adventures of Henry the Mole
More "Dr. Manny Presents" reviews
I think I'll start some paid commissions, as well as some adoptables, too...
The end of Skeeter!
Yes, I'm ending my webcomic, but in Skeeter's place, I'll be creating a spinoff titled Adventures of Henry the Mole. Unlike Skeeter, I hope to make Adventures more story-driven, with actual character development. I'm still working on the first chapter, but I've already completed the prologue, and I'll upload it ASAP.
I'll also be working on my new review series, "Dr. Manny Presents," and find some things that are worthy of review. I'll need suggestions, of course, so everyone is welcome to comment!
I'm also wo
Dr. Manny Presents #8: Bubsy pilot-EDIT (1/3/2016): Updated to include the revised notepage for this cartoon.
(Manny is on the phone right now)
:icondoctormanny::iconsaysplz: EXCUSE ME, I did NOT start this review series just so you could torment me! I'm NOT willing to go that far!
:iconsaysplzh? But you were so generous to review my breakout show. Now, I'm returning the favor... with my FAVORITE failed pilot!
:icondoctormanny::iconsaysplzut it's freaking stupid! And I don't think even fans of the CHARACTER like it!
:icondrrobotnikplz::iconsaysplz: Well, I'm giving this to you anyway. And I expect a full, constructive review, positive or not! Now, I must be going. My PINGAS won't scratch itself!
(Robotnik hangs up)
Man, I really HATE that egghead...
Sorry, fellers... Looks like I've been given a RIPE target today. Before I start this review, I would like to talk about a character named Bubsy.

Dr. Manny Presents #7: Pepper AnnLive from Chicago, it’s Dr. Manny Presents!!!
I saw this coming. In my review of Angela Anaconda, I mentioned Pepper Ann. The creator of that show, Sue Rose, also co-created Angela Anaconda and lent her voice to the title character. As I reviewed Angela Anaconda, I realized two things:
1. Sue Rose is no actor.
2. It’s not the first time an otherwise-good person created a dud (search Da Boom Crew, The Buzz on Maggie, and (apparently) Rocket Power to know what I mean).
Still, I felt obligated to review Pepper Ann (it was in my list of things to review from the get-go). I remember watching it whenever it was on back in the days when there will still good things to watch on TV. Don’t get me wrong, of course we still have some gems now (I also plan on reviewing Gravit
Dr. Manny Presents #6: My Least Favorite ShowsEDIT:
-9/25/15: I found out an... interesting fact about Hip Hop Harry.
PLAYER 1 has entered Dr. Manny Presents.
I was originally going to review Kappa Mikey, a show I used to love when I was younger, but I don't really remember much of it. I'm going to have to rewatch the show again before I can review it (there are episodes I still haven't seen!). Also, I feel like reviewing Kappa Mikey will be too topical during this time of year, so I'll move that review to a later time.
Until then, I'll be typing this review of my bottom 10 least favorite shows of all time. This is a serious review, being written from my own experiences; also, please be mature when you leave comments. Everyone's opinions are different, yes, but being a jerk about it is not my cup of tea. OK?
Without further ado, this is Dr. Manny's Top 10 Least Favorite Shows.
10. Planet Sheen
This show is... kin
School's coming up.Yep... Starts on Monday for me, which means that I gotta hit the books.
This won't keep me from DA, however. I'll still be working on reviews and art in the meantime , but school's gonna take up quite a bit of my time.
Until then, cheers!
Dr. Manny Presents #5: Angela AnacondaWell, what are you guys waiting for? It’s Dr. Manny Presents!
In my last installment, I ripped on Horrid Henry, no doubt one of my least favorite shows of all time. It’s filled with incorrigible characters, ear-rape, and animation errors that even Sonic Underground would laugh at. I bring that up because of the next subject of this series, Angela Anaconda.
As I mentioned in my Horrid Henry review, I said that this show was only slightly less bad. Yes, slightly. I’ll get to why in a bit.
This show is based on a segment on KaBlam! (Remember that show?) The gimmick is that this show tried to imitate cutout animation – the same type used to animate those first two South Park shorts and those Terry Gilliam cartoons, the latter being the one to which the show is closer. I would forgive that had the characters not looked actually worse than they d
Dr. Manny Presents #4: Horrid HenryHello, friends and readers, and welcome to Dr. Manny Presents…
I was originally going to review Sonic Underground after Sonic X (and I really should have, seeing as it’s a flat-out insult to an amazing character), but I realized two facts: 1) it’d be kinda redundant to review three different Sonic media at once, so I’ve moved it down the review list, and 2) this show is so hellishly bad… Sonic Underground is Doug compared to this toxic waste of a show. It is Garfield Show-level bad. It is bad… The abysmal jar of ecstasy and nuclear bombs known as… Horrid Henry.
This show is one of sheer stupidity. This show thinks that being cruel and destructive can be considered funny. It’s not. It’s really not. Combine that with shoddy animation, piss-poor writing and voice acting, and total

requests are closed until I finish drawing the characters I picked,
I'm opening a tiny request journal in order to celebrate New Year!
I'll be most likely drawing a headshot linearts like this one! But it also can be a different type of drawing, such as an ink or pencil sketch, or an animated illustration as it will be a surprise.
I will be taking a look at this journal from time to time !
I won't be drawing all requests, just few of these, but I'll tell you if I'll accept your request and feature your comment then.
Don't ask me if I accepted your request, just check if your comment is featured. If it is, then you'll receive a drawing from me at some point.

NO APOLOGIES BECAUSE I LOVE EVERY SINGLE PIECE AND I GOTTA SHOW EM TO YOU LIKE A FERRET WITH HER BABIES
(In all seriousness, I have a ton of fanart piled up in my inbox notifications, and the sheer volume gives me so much anxiety it's kinda overwhelming to attempt to comment on every piece (there's hundreds!) Please, PLEASE just know from the bottom of my heart, if you've ever drawn or written something for me (or even just shown support), I'm grateful beyond words. Thank you~)

Contest - Super Upgrade (open)Hi everyone!
I promised to make a contest in June - here we go!
Imagine... A young mage (or a witch, or a wizard, or... well... anyone) gets their first magic staff. As you can see, it's pretty plain and boring, but time passes and the staff (as well as its owner) changes... Perhaps its owner turned to dark magic and the staff now looks rather intimidating. Perhaps they are a druid and the staff is covered in flowers and leaves. Or perhaps now it contains one of elements. Or it's a weapon of Heavens. Or a deadly tool of a necromancer. It's up to you to decide!
So the task of this contest is to upgrade this staff.
paint the staff any colour you want
add details, ornaments, sparkles, etc. (as many as you want!)
submit only 1 entry (you can draw several variants but then you'll have to choose which one you'll submit as your entry)
(optionally) write a few
