The Horror That is the deviantART Questionaire!!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, this thing is going around.  I figure I might as well jump on the bandwagon.  I'll be the one playing the concertina.

How long have you been on deviantART?
According to stats, I've been on deviantART for eleven years.  That's 77 in dog years.

What does your username mean?

My first initial, my middle initial, and my last name.  I just gotta be me.

Describe yourself in three words.
Nerdy, Lazy, Anal

Are you left or right handed?

Right-handed.

What was your first deviation?

According to my gallery, this one posted December 5, 2003.
Kismet and Me 1 by NCWeber

What is your favourite type of art to create?
I think I rather like pinup style or fashion plate art.

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I would love to be a master of the manga art style.

What was your first favourite?
-sacrifice- by aramaki

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Pretty much similar to what I create.  Superhero art, cheeky pinup art, glamorous fashion plate art, and occasionally the silly, goofy comic strip.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Ugh, come on.  If that isn't a loaded question, I'll eat my hat.  Okay, I can probably narrow it down to VanHeist and jollyjack as my all time must see first when they post something, but there are so many artists out there that I love.  I mean, I wouldn't follow their accounts otherwise, now would I?

If you could meet anyone on deviantART in person, who would it be?
Wow, let me see. I would definitely like to meet AngelicEmpyress, ebony-chan, and brianne333 most of all.  I also would like to meet jollyjack and EvilJoel.  I'm sure I can think of others without breaking a sweat, but these are my top faves for a meet-and-greet.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
A whole bunch of deviants have participated in my many art contests that I have thrown over the years.  They didn't have to do that, yet they took time out of their busy schedules to jump in and produce art for my silly contests.  Love those folks for that.  All of them.

What are your preferred tools to create art?
In traditional art, I prefer pencil and paper.  For digital art, The GIMP is my software of choice in combination with my Wacom 4x6 Bamboo Fun tablet.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Place doesn't matter for me.  My inspiration happens whenever, wherever I am.  The art generally happens either in my bedroom or in the dining room, but the inspiration follows me wherever I go.

What is your favourite deviantART memory?
I....don't remember.

So I decided to pre-order the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" with 64GB of storage.  I've been dying for a Kindle Fire with more storage.  However, adding more storage, having the lock screen ads removed, and getting a case and a 2-year warranty really doubled the cost.  Still, I figure, I'm worth it.  I don't drink, I don't smoke, and I don't use recreational drugs. Gotta spend my cash on something.

Saw the site Ruined Childhood. There was a Magic School Bus meme that was absolutely epic.  How many times have I thought that in my head, seriously?  Check it out for a good laugh. ruinedchildhood.com/post/98910…

Hey guys.  Long time no see.  I've been really getting into Pirate101 from KingsIsle.  It is a very well designed game.  On top of that, playing a sky pirate is just plain fun.  Haven't done much by way of art except over on my mature account :iconafrodisium:. NSFW  Even there, it's been a while.  I've really been on an MMO kick.  I've even gotten back into Champions Online where I have recreated a lot of my heroes.  It fun to actually be able to fight bad guys with your own creations. :D

If you're interested in seeing what I'm up to, you can follow me on Facebook.  I hang out there quite a bit and all my posts are publicly accessible. www.facebook.com/ncweber00

I have a Twitter account, but all it does is repeat my Facebook posts. twitter.com/Afrodiseum

I also have a Tumblr account.  I don't post much there.  What I have posted is my most recent stuff from both dA accounts, and the occasional personal musing or repost from people I follow. ncweber00.tumblr.com  If you have a Tumblr account, let me know. I'd like to follow your account. :)

If you are on Patreon, let me know.  I'm supporting my favorite artists there. :nod:

Greetings, fellow deviants.  :iconbrianne333:, one of our own and a very good friend of mine, is in a bit of dire straights.  Now, I know it can be hard to spend money at the request of someone you hardly know, but consider this as an act of human kindness.  Plus, you'll be getting some top notch art in the process.  You can find out all the particulars on brianne333's Tumblr account.  Please consider throwing your hand in.  It would mean a great deal to me.  Thank you.

I've been doing a series of pictures that feature lyrics from songs that I've heard.  Often I'll hear the song and think, "Hey, those words would perfectly describe this character of mine!"  So, then I set about doing a drawing complete with the lyrics.  Here are the ones I've done so far.

1. L.L. Milkshake Final ***

Mature Content

L.L. - Milkshake Final by Afrodisium
*** This was actually done on my mature account Afrodisium, but it certainly qualifies. It's also the first one that I did.  This is my superheroine Lactation Lass, and the song "Milkshake" can be taken quite literally in her case which is what made it funny at the time.

2. Red Iko *** Red Iko by NCWeber *** This is Red Glover.  She's a pyrokinetic, which means she can produce flames and heat at will.  She's enjoying a classic song from New Orleans that is sung by competing parade krewes during Mardi Gras.  I felt it applied to Red because she can really set your ass on fire.  So, you know, don't piss the lady off.

3. Clover Drive *** Clover Drive by NCWeber *** This is Clover Glover. She's a beguiler, which basically means she can influence the thinking of members of the opposite sex.  Clover is listening to a Rihanna tune called "Shut Up and Drive".  The song is an automotive metaphor for sex.  And while Clover never needs a metaphor for sex, she certainly enjoys the song.

4. Emilia on Fire *** Emilia on Fire by NCWeber *** This is Emilia Hart.  She's a super model turned superheroine.  Another pyrokinetic, she's more of a fire elemental than Red is as her hair becomes live flames whenever she powers up.  Because of this, I found They Might Be Giants' song "You're On Fire" to be a perfect fit as the phrase "combustible head" is repeated often in the song. :)

5. Lithium MARS *** Not Yet Completed *** This is MARS, or Musical Anthropomorphic Robotic Sentience.  She's an android who records and repeats music whether played or sung.  Here she is listening to the closing theme song from the anime Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex called "Lithium Flower".  I thought the surreal description fit MARS rather well.

Workin' My Way Back To You

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 25, 2014, 12:41 PM

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, a lot of changes are going on right now.  First and foremost, I've given up on the whole personal Web site thing.  I just don't have the time to take care of a Web site of my own.  And to be honest, deviantART is a really good place for people to see not only my art, but how people react to my art.  So, I'm sticking with this.

That said, I'm going to start rearranging some things here.  I will be uploading some old stuff from my old (now dead) site to this gallery.  So, expect a deluge of stuff you either haven't seen before, or haven't seen in a decade or more.

I may also post some old fanart that people have done for me.  Some are from artists who aren't on dA.  Or at least they weren't then.  This was back in the AOL days in the artist news groups.  Back then, dA was a twinkle in some programmer's eye.

Anyway, you won't see anything right away.  I've got to organize stuff on my hard drive first before the inevitable upload fest.  Right now, that consists of converting the old HTML pages that the stories are in to Open Document Format (ODF).  Don't forget, I'm living in a Linux world these days, so i'm trying to cut myself loose from the shackles of Micro$oft.

After that, I'll see about getting back to writing.  I've got a crap ton of stories that need finishing.  I know a number of folks who will be happy to hear that. :)  I've been rereading a lot of my old work, and I think I have some good ideas foe wrapping up a number of stories.  We'll see how things go.

Until next time, keep arting it up! :w00t:

Yes, well...  In spite of promises to get back into things.  It was sporadic at best.  I blame my love of certain Cryptic MMORPGs.  Particularly Champions Online and Neverwinter.  They are just soooo much fun!

So, recently I've gotten a new phone.  Samsung Galaxy S4, and it rocks!  Also, just got a new lapop with a core i5 CPU and on of those Intel/nVIDIA hybrid graphics cards.  It screams under Ubuntu 13.10.

I plan to get back to manual drawing.  You know, pencil and paper.  I'm hoping to do regular sketching.  I may post some of the results here.  No promises, though.  I'm also working on a new Web site.  Working with my old one was getting stale, and I have been so far out of the Web design game that my skills are pretty much DOA.  So, I'm designing it on Square Space.  Their interface takes aome getting used to, but it's slowly progressing.  When it's ready, I'll let you guys know.

I've been running into a spate of creativity recently, so I guess that means I'm back in the art game.  Keep in mind that I have no plans to make any kind of living out of this.  I do this for fun.  For a while, it wasn't fun any more.  Then, some things have changed for me (one thing that helped was a new hire at work that cut my workload in half!).  So, now I'm found time to actually draw stuff.  I've even started a new fan fiction based on the MMORPG called Ryzom.  So, uhm, yeah.  Hi there.  Long time no see. ^^;

Well, it looks like my return to deviantART was a no go. But, I'm not giving up on it yet.  I will do my best to create more art and upload it here.

In the meantime, let's see what's new with me.  I'm currently using an Android phone, and yes, I skinned it like I had the BlackBerry Curve. I have an Amazon Kindle Fire, which I subsequently gave to my mother once the Fire HD.  I skinned both.

I am now a fulltime Ubuntu user. When Windows tanked on my gaming PC, I decided to make the switch.  I am learning how to run Windows games in Linux with WINE.  Except for Rappelz, I've gotten them all working smoothly.

Last year, I lost one of my best friends ever.  She died of a runaway infection.  She was a beautiful young lady who knew how to make the world light up, and I miss her.

So, that's about it for now. I'll keep you posted.
Hey there, folks.  Yeah, I know, I've been AWOL for quite a bit.  I'm becoming a Catholic deviantART user.  I only visit on major holidays like Christmas and Easter. ;)

Anyway, I see much has changed in dA, though most hasn't.  Even so, I'm glad the old place is still kicking about.  I'm going to make an effort to get back to more creative pursuits.  If only MMORPGs weren't so darned addictive.  Especially that Champions Online.  Oh baby am I hooked on that one! :P  All of my characters are ones I've posted here on dA.  Kismet is there, of course.  Aquilia, Aura, Monolith, Maxima.  I've even got Atomic Kitty and Bonnie Harras in there.  Anthro heroes rock. :D  Just recently I've made Topman and Kickside.  It's just too bad you can't have a sidekick. They'd be great together, just as they were intended.  Anyway, I have an idea rattling about in my brain for a new character in my "mature" account over at Afrodisium, and I've been trying to brainstorm stuff for Raven and Topman & Kickside here in this account.  We'll see where it leads, but don't get your hopes up too high.  That RPG siren call is just soooo alluring...

Stamp of Approval

Tue Jun 28, 2011, 2:10 PM
So, over the years I've receive quite a large number of faves for the Nintendo DS Original stamp I created.

Nintendo DS Original Stamp by NCWeber

On the one hand, it pleases me greatly that I've touched a nerve among fellow portable gamers.  However, there is the dearth of faves or views of my actual art.  I mean, the stamp is a cut and paste job at best.  Sure, the stamp had to be created over a transparent layer, and the scalloped edges created pixel at a time.  But outside of that, the image was taken from the Nintendo Web site and shrunk down to fit.  The text is standard Windows fonts stuff.  There's really not much to it.  Granted, I thought the wording was rather clever in a punnish sort of way.  Screw?  Lite?  As in light bulb?  Get it?  Oooookay.  Moving along...

So, anyway, the popularity of this thing, which took me maybe half an hour to pop off, sort of niggles at me.  So much so, I've come to a decision.  I normally make it a habit to thank each and every person who faves a piece of art of mine.  But starting today, I am no longer thanking for faving the stamp.  Believe me, I'm happy that you appreciate it.  Go ahead and fave to your hearts' content.  Use it on your blogs and journals even.  Consider it public domain.  You'll notice my name's not even on it.  But, I didn't invest much of myself into it.  Extremely little in fact, other than griping about the turnover of new DS devices Nintendo seems to be foisting upon us.  As such, I guess the stamp is getting a little dated.  That's progress, no matter how forced.

What was I saying?  Oh yeah.  No more active thanking for faving the stamp.  You'll have my tacit approval instead.  Oh, I'll still respond to comments on it, of course.  Because hey, let's face it, I'm a sociable guy. :)

Meh...

Thu Jan 27, 2011, 10:38 PM
I haven't really been in a creative mood lately.  And to be honest, I'm getting tired of the :+fav:es and watches and journals.  Not leaving dA.  Just taking a long vacation.  Ok, longer.

So, I was reading an update from Imy Comics www.imycomic.com when Irma mentioned that she was in an interview on Comics Coast to Coast.  So I listened to the Podcast and, lo and behold, my name is mentioned!  Woohoo, I'm famous! :w00t:  I'm discussed because of the fanart I did for Irma of her title character Imy.

Seriously, though, I was pleased as punch and quite honored.  You can listen to the Podcast here. comicscoasttocoast.com/episode…
I'm mentioned at about the 30:00 minute mark when they start talking about fanart, but please, listen to the whole interview.  It's a lot of fun.

Ok, so I've decided to get myself a Twitter account.  Why?  No idea.  Just to see what the brouhaha is all about, I suppose.  If you want to follow me, and heaven only knows why you'd want to, you can reach me via @Afrodiseum or go to twitter.com/Afrodiseum.

I doubt I'll use it all that often, however, because I use Gwibber in Ubuntu, my Facebook and me Twitter accounts are joined at the hip, so what I post to one might end up on the other.

We'll see what happens.

The most bizarre thing about Twitter is that as soon as I created the account I was followed by three people (although one was a spammer whom I promptly blocked) who are complete strangers to me.  I doubt they even know what I'm doing on Twitter in the first place.  Very odd behavior if you ask me.  And unlike Facebook or MySpace, you can't prevent someone from following you.  Just block any messages they send out.  And just think.  My Tweets will eventually be archived at the Library of Congress.  Your tax dollars at work, eh? :D

Okay, so quite a few of you folks out there know that I do quite a lot of work on my little netbook computer running Ubuntu.  In Ubuntu, there is a default music player.  Kinda like how Windows Media Player is the Windows' default music player.  In Ubuntu, it's called Rhythmbox. projects.gnome.org/rhythmbox/s… actually a kind of take on earlier versions of iTunes.  In fact, the current version support iPod/iPhone synchronization.  But I digress.

Anyway, Rhythmbox doesn't have the money or licensing to support your standard big name music conglomerates, so they go Creative Commons.  One of their stores is a little place on the Web called Jamendo. www.jamendo.com  It'… a Web site where artists can upload their own music for all and sundry to listen to free of charge.  There are some fantastic pieces of music there.  A quick search of your favorite genre's using the tag system, and you're sure to find some cool music.  I've been scoping the instrumental stuff, and finding some awesome tracks from artists making music all over the world.

So, how about it?  Ready to drop your preconceived notions and explore some random music by largely unknown international artists?  It'll broaden your horizons.  You might even find a new favorite artist or two. :nod:

EDIT: I've discovered an artist names ADULT ONLY.  Very lush electronica pieces.  Though they are listed as albums, they are technically singles.   Clever cover art, too.  Check him/her/them out (I have no idea who the person or persons are involved in ADULT ONLY.  There's no identifying band info):  www.jamendo.com/en/artist/Adul…

So, I've been playing my sixth wizard in the MMORPG Wizard101.  His name is Brandon Earthbreaker.  He is a Balance Wizard or Sorcerer.  Balance magic is a combination of the strengths behind the elemental schools of magic: Fire, Ice and Storm.  As such, Balance tends to be weak against the spirit schools: Life, Death and Myth.  The school colors are brown and orange.

Anyway, once Brandon reached the world of Marleybone (a representation of Victorian London populated by anthropomorphic dogs, cats, rats, and frogs), he was able to put together a rather spiffy looking outfit consisting of a top hat, dinner jacket with cape, and riding boots with spats.  Very stylish, I must say.  Later on, I suddenly realized: Top hat?  Brown jacket?  Orange shirt?  Good Lord!  Brandon is Professor Layton!

In my quest for high quality games for Linux (that won't actually bore me =P ), I found a couple of really interesting games.

One is called Aquaria www.bit-blot.com/aquaria/ … beautifully rendered side scroller with amazing ambiance.  The music, scenery and user interface combine to make an engrossing game with an ethereal feel.  Unfortunately, this beauty isn't available for Linux, though I understand they are mulling the decision to port.  I hope they do.  This game is worth $20. :nod:

Another game I found is somewhat bizarre.  It's called Lugaru HD www.wolfire.com/lugaru &n… sort of a cross between Usagi Yojimbo and classic Hong Kong kung fu films of the 70s.  The graphics are moderately high level, but the backgrounds are somewhat basic, and the collision physics need work.  Even so, this game looks like fun.  Think Chuck Norris as an anthropomorphic bunny.  Now that's awesome.

Now, here's one for the bizarre.  Have you always wanted to play an RPG, but just don't have the time to deal with all the minutiae in the game?  Is "hack & slash" getting dull and repetitive?  Are the people you play with online boorish noobs with no manners?  Well, then this game is for you!  It's called Progress Quest progressquest.com and you don't so much play as watch it play itself.  No graphics.  No sound.  Just stats as your character slaughters monster after monster.  Some of which are truly bizarre (why did I just kill a giant cub scout and take his neckerchief as a trophy?).  But if you think the monsters are odd, wait until you see the races and classes you get to choose from.  Human?  Nuh-uh.  Elf?  Not the kind you're thinking of.  How about an enchanted motorcycle?  Or a talking pony?  And just what the heck is a double hobbit anyway?  Weird little game.

After living in the U.S. for forty years now, here are my oversimplified observations about the primary political movements:

Conservatives want the government to maintain Constitutional freedoms so that people can live their lives the way they wish.  An admirable goal.

Liberals want the government to provide the people with the tools they need to live happy and successful lives.  Also, an admirable goal.

Why these two points of view are mutually exclusive, I have no idea.  As with most things political, the disparity isn't in the broad view.  It's in the niggling little details that more often than not don't mean a hill a beans.  And they fight each other tooth and nail over these inconsequentials.  Thus, leading to the following conclusion by the general populace.  Politicians are idiots. :nod:

So, I was futzing about on the Web when I ran across an old game I used to love to play called Creatures.  Only this time, it was written for Linux (ported, really).  There was a free add-on that runs as a stand alone game called Docking Station.  I figured I'd download it and give it a try.  It was damn near difficult to install, really.  And it refused to run, because it interfaces with a Web server that no longer exists.  They should fix that.

Still, the company that's distributing Creatures called Linux Games Publishing www.linuxgamepublishing.com has a whole bunch of other great games that they sell for Linux.  One is Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim.  I still have the Windows version of that game.  They had a demo for download, and that installed flawlessly.  I've played the demo several times.  I still love this game.  I never could beat the Expert levels in the Windows version, though.  Maybe after all these years, I can finally beat it. :)  There's another game I found on there that looks like a Diablo II clone.  It's called Sacred.  Anyone here ever play that?  Anyway, I decided to get that one also (no demo for that, so I'm taking a risk).

One thing about Linux Games Publishing, though, is that it's in the UK.  All their stuff is listed in British Pounds.  Which looks reasonable, but when you convert to dollars, it starts to get pricey.  Not to mention overseas shipping, and the foreign exchange fees your bank charges for having to use a calculator to convert currencies (wusses).  Still, I'm thinking it's going to be worth it once I get my new games. :nod:
