Personal Quote: "If there was more than one way to Heaven then what did Jesus die for?"

Hi, I'm JohnMichael Woodard otherwise known as SmithyGCN. You may have known me for my sprite rips which I am not very fond of remembering these days. Presently, I do animation, art, cooking, and pixel art. I'm currently working on an animated film with God helping me! My studio is called Woodard Art & Animation and it's a fledgling studio with only one actual member so far. I've overcome many hardships in my life including mental illness and bowel troubles thanks to God. I plan to do great things for Him for His graciousness to me and to treat people as people and not as objects or targets for harsh judgment. Everyone is welcome to my page and to leave feedback and critique. Feel free to message me and I will try to get back to you at my earliest convenience! God bless! <=Discord Server

Okay, this is going to make me seem like some crackpot, but here goes as I feel this will mean something to someone. Hi, my name is JohnMichael Woodard. Otherwise known as SmithyGCN. I was schizophrenic and used to suffer from colitis and demonic possession for over ten years until over half a year ago God healed me completely. I know, I know, the doctors all say this stuff is incurable and I was headed toward a vegetative state whether I had medicine or not, but I was able to dodge the bullet. I never opened up about it as I never wanted to trouble anyone about my previous conditions. I tend to talk about things like this only after things have changed for me. The only signs I had anything like that before were that I rarely replied to comments because I was severely socially awkward and, while I joked around sometimes, I overdid and did it, again, very awkwardly. Now I reply to as many comments as I possibly can to show that I care about your interests and questions and relate to

I've been thinking about this for a while now and, after the people who tried picking a fight with me on :iconmattx125:'s Ben Garrison posts, I have come to the conclusion that DA is no longer a place I wish to be. Coupled with the people who post nothing but smut without a mature filter in every one of my searches (that is the last time I am going to see a fat Krystal on this site) and there seems to be no quality control here. To top it all off, a Pharisee of Pharisees blindsided me a few days ago claiming because I am a Trump supporter that God "failed" to convince me of my "evil ways" and that I had supposedly sided with Satan. That wasn't even the half of it. Before I could say anything to this guy, he blocked me from responding! What good is a site that prevents you from trying to reason with people? I don't even know this guy or why he had a motor in his nose about which political side I take. I mean, I understand people aren't going to like me regardless of what I do, but for

Sorry I am taking a long time to produce art pieces concerning the book/film/series. I've been writing for the past few weeks trying to get this book just right for you all as I feel its message is important for the church. But at the same time, I want it to be the best it can possibly be so there would be little confusion on what I mean. I am hoping this novel and eventual film will be a delight to read for all. A lot of world-building and research into Scripture, science, computers, and the culture of 80s America has gone into this book. Just about everything, regardless of how unimportant it may seem, has a purpose to the overall picture of story. Jason's life is meant to be an allegory for the Christian walk and he is the reason the nim exist as a concept in this piece of fiction's world. God has put wonderful people in my path to help my walk with Him as well as to help this story reach its truest potential. So, bear with me for some time longer. The chapters are very long. The

Smithy, I'd like to introduce you to the Eagle Force!

Hi smithygcn Love your Art E-Man276 recommended i give your page a look

Nice to meet you. :)

Thanks for watching me, Smithy! :+devwatch:

You're welcome! :)

I was watching AVGN recently and i was tempted to ask this but...

It's true that the Bible has a lot of the word "ass"? And even dumb ass?

Sorry for that, but now i'm really curious XD

It's true! Even hell and damn are mentioned! But never with the meaning we use today.
