Tradition (Semi-Digital) Artist

Hi, they call me Steve. I live in a small town in the state of New Jersey. Music drives me, and art motivates me. I'm talented in making and playing music too. You could also say I'm good with computers too, especially when it comes to making edits. I am not a professional, yet, but I find drawing things to help pass the time when I need to let some thoughts flow out of my mind, or when there's nothing else to do.

Series that I like: Dragon Ball series, Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Gurren Lagann, Mario, Sonic, Castlevania, Mega Man series, Smash Bros, Pokémon, Persona series, Yu-Gi-Oh, Hellsing, Yu Yu Hakusho, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, One-Punch Man, My Hero Academia, Fairy Tail, Cowboy Bebop.

Series I do:
:bulletgreen: Sharpshot: A Dragon Ball Z AU taking place in a Westen + Sci-Fi scenario. The story does feature original characters from a bunch of people I trust but also does its best to fit well for the story its based off of, and hopefully adds a little something extra to it as well.

:bulletgreen: Hunter SOUL Assassin: Imagine human society discovering three powers, once thought to be fictional among stories and games as far as the eye could see. Since that discovery, human society has changed, where these "Common Three Arts" have become a part of the lives to many, and have also helped bring upon technological advances. But at the same time, it comes with its fair share of consequences as well. A league of talented users of the Arts has come together under an old assassin guild's name. They fight in support of the law to save the innocents, and eliminate the unforgivable corrupt, called the Huntsmen. Unbeknownst to a high school teen, his best friend may have secrets tied to this organization, in which he too may be caught in the middle of a fight to end this so-called "Era of Darkness."

:bulletgreen: DataRex+: In the year 2025, a digital-like dimension is discovered by scientists, seemingly with a mutual connection to energy and data within our world. Unfortunately, this world happened to be led by a cruel leader who overthrew the God of the world, taking over and seeking to expand his rule. The human race had come together to fight back, only to almost lose all hope in surviving against the threat's superior power. Fortunately, four heroes emerged from the other world and helped push back these enemies to where they came. One year later, technological college intern Rendo Yukashi finds that the world may not have been safe as the people believed it would be, and is given the power to fight back as the artificial warrior Cyber-Rex.

Wow, I can't believe it's been six years now. Where has the time gone, am I right? Then again, it's not like I see it as a bad thing. If anything, I see it as a reason to celebrate, of course! :D Now if only I could get that 5th-anniversary picture done before I start working on a 6th. Oh boy, this might take a little while. :lol:

Thanks for the six or so years of support, guys! :heart:
I guess I should inform you guys that a load of things has happened over the past week or so, and all will be made clear eventually. Even so, I figured I should make a status update so you all know I'm doing well. I am still trying to keep myself motivated and inspired, and I will try to upload some new things before this Friday. I'm just saying that something pretty neat will be happening on that day, and it's going to keep me preoccupied during the following week. :thumbsup:

That's all from me! Deadpool - OK
I swear, this week (perhaps the last two weeks) has been loaded with Dragon Ball news, scans and so on. :o I'm not sure whether my mind feels like it can keep up with one new thing after the next, but I'd say I'm dealing with it just fine for now. :giggle: How about that new Paragus and Broly design, though? :U Feel free to let me know your thoughts on that. :thumbsup:
Just wanted to say how interesting it is that I’ve been able to get pinged on when people have been using that TFS Goku icon i posted for shits and giggles. Okay, maybe I needed to use it, myself, but I’m kinda glad some deviants were interested in putting it to use. :thumbsup:

Ah, and I got one final left before I’m pretty much done for the semester, so there’s that too. :giggle: :w00t:
Hot damn, am I seriously turning 21 in these next six days? :lmao: But hey, I'd say I'm fairly content with how my life has been so far. :) Just gotta keep me in the right direction is all. I hope you guys have been doing fine, too! :thumbsup:-:D



Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

After being recently tagged by my good friend, VorticalFiveStudios, I figured I'd get this over with. :) By the way, thanks for asking me these questions. It actually got me thinking for a bit, and probably helped me open up a little on some ideas and so on.


~ You must post all the rules.
~ Answer 10 questions that you have been asked then create 10 more questions for the others that you have tagged to answer.
~ Choose 10 people.
~ Legitimately tag these people.


Questions asked:

1. If you are an anime fan, which series got you into the medium?
The original Dragon Ball series for sure. I know that sounds a bit anticlimactic, but I used to watch Dragon Ball more than Dragon Ball Z back when I was young because I believe my mom didn't feel comfortable about me watching Z, yet didn't seem to be bothered by the previous series. Of course, Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Sonic X were close contenders since I watched those as a kid as well, but when I looked back at Dragon Ball Z during my high school years, it slowly got me into the vast expanse of anime.

2. In a hypothetical situation, you are forced to kill off one of your OCs and never use them again. Which do you choose?
Ugh, I don't usually like to do that. I mean, I can see where the question is going, and naturally, a villain character could work, but for some reason, I'd likely feel a bit hesitant to give a straight answer. I guess the answer goes to Hoykin, a hypothetical Yu Yu Hakusho character who I designed for a fan series. It's not like I would've planned much else for him following his supposed defeat by the heroes.

3. Who was your first OC, and have your feelings on them wavered since their creation?
Sunto Hatchilock, definitely. And no, my feelings toward him are still essentially the same as they were before. Granted, my views have become more "mellow" in a sense. I know this is unnecessary, but I'm just going to elaborate a little to give a decent enough answer in my opinion.

When I created Sunto, he came from a sort of understanding toward Son Pan of the Dragon Ball series when I first watched Dragon Ball GT in full. Seeing the character, and eventually seeing the hate that people seem to give to her, I was the exact opposite. It's kinda like the hype people got for Kale and Caulifla where to me, Pan was the first fighting female Saiyan of the series that kinda meant something to it (and technically, that would be correct). She's the kid of Gohan and Videl, and the first 1/4-Saiyan of the series. While I knew about Celipa (or Fasha as we call her), she was just a Saiyaness to Bardock's team at best. Pan, on the other hand, was a character that was first introduced at the End of Z period. Going to GT, I saw how she was somebody who wanted to prove that even as a tween, and as a girl, there was more to her than what everybody else saw.

That's actually something that one could connect to, is it not? I'm pretty sure this character direction wasn't that far from something anybody else might feel in the real world. Heck, perhaps even I felt that way too. But Dragon Ball GT's presentation of Pan wasn't all too good. She had her moments, but I can understand everybody else's problem with her. It even sucks to know to this day that Toei tried to make her the "Bulma" of the trio when basing them off of a classic Dragon Ball structure. C'mon, really? Pan is no damsel in distress.

I created Sunto because I wanted there to be a character that could respect Pan; someone as a supportive friend and actually understands the good in her, as well as her potential. I feel like I ultimately succeeded to this day. Anybody who says to me how much they appreciate my guy feels like the kind of proof that confirms it for me.

What changed, however, were a few things. For some reason, when I started out, it seemed to gradually become a serious matter to me that I did this, and at the time, I actually had a huge thing for Pan. Of course, this made me want to have Sunto associate with many, many other things, usually made by other people. I also used to really hope that someday, somehow, he could be something canon of sorts due to being proud of what I had made. Not my best moments and my mind will sometimes have me reflect upon that fact whether I intend to or not. Nowadays, I'm not so obsessed, especially with Pan. I still hold major respect for her though, as she is still my favorite Dragon Ball females. Sure, it'd be nice if I were somehow able to get the opportunity to bring him into the series, but it's nothing I stress about. If somebody that isn't Sunto one day gets the honor of being her official lover, I'll most likely be fine with that. Well, as long as it's a character that makes sense. As for my good friends here (and perhaps some of his fans) who openly allow him into their series or ideas, I wholeheartedly appreciate your honest-to-God kindness.

4. Which underrated series would you like to make more popular?
Forgive me, but it's gotta be Black Clover. I actually like that series because I understand what mangaka Yūki Tabata tries to do, and I actually appreciate the story and its characters. I believe it to be the anime adaptation's fault that people seem to give it a bad rap most of the time. I mean, the anime is decent! But Studio Pierrot really didn't do it many favors, especially at the beginning. Still, I enjoy watching it every so often on Toonami. But, of course, that would only mean I like the dub. No offense to Asta's Japanese voice, because I understand he's very new (and I sorta want to strive for voice-over as well), but the presentation just doesn't help his character at all. You'll see what I mean if you decide to do a bit of research. But yeah, I think Black Clover is cool.

A second contender to this question is Bleach, by the way.

5. Which series would you say is severely overrated?
Hoo boy. I don't think I've ever come across any sort of series that I think is overrated. This will take a bit of time for me to figure it out. Yikes, I guess Dragon Ball? I mean, it's a classic series that continues to hold a massive fanbase to this very day. But even so, it's not a truly perfect series. As I've come to love the series, but also learn and understand certain principles of good writing, it's become clear that it's not perfect. Certain things about it can hold a huge inconsistency or issue with it if you look closely. Sure, Dragon Ball Super was a big example of this, but it also lies in some of the other series as well. But I certainly don't hate all of it. It's always going to be something I hold near and dear to my heart. I just know that some things about it aren't entirely going to be worth the praise that others may give. Well, maybe except Battle of Gods (because I love that movie a lot).

6. If you are a writer, was your first story a canon character-centric fanfic, an OC-centric fanfic, or not tied to any preexisting series?
The first thing I truly wrote was something regarding Sunto, no doubt. At the time, I was trying to get the hang of drawing and so on, that I felt writing a story or two could help develop him a bit. Nowadays, I write a bunch of different things here and there, regardless of what it basically involves.

7. Do you prefer subs or dubs?
I actually have equal preference to both. If I really want to see a new episode of something as soon as I can, chances are I'll watch the sub. But I still watch the dub because it's fun, and hearing how we handle it can sometimes make an episode better than it was before. I mean, the dub for Dragon Ball Super did help me appreciate the parts that I didn't like at first. It's kinda magical that way.

8. You are given the opportunity to create a series for a company. The series can take any form (live action, animation, video game, comic, etc.). What would you choose as the premise?
Phew, OK. There's a tie between two ideas:
I'm a huge sucker for the Persona series, so one is my idea for a Persona video game, Persona 4S: Astral Distortion. It'd be kinda like a side story that happens between Persona 4 and Persona 5. It features a brand new protagonist and a bunch of new allies he'd gain along the way, yet the game would still have a bit of a connection to the team of Persona 4. At least one of those characters would probably join the team if anything. The protagonist, a friend of Yu Narukami (P4's protagonist) lives in the same home city and attends the same school, giving us a chance to take a look at where Yu comes from and so on. After experiencing a strange, sudden shift in reality, the main character learns of the Astral Plane: a mysterious supernatural world that creates Distortion Spaces. Distortion Spaces house different forms of negativity stemming from the real world, to which an Amp at the center of each has the capability of replacing any section of the world with its own should its capacity overflow. It's up to the hero and his team of new friends to infiltrate these dimensions and ultimately find out who is responsible for causing the Astral Plane in the first place.

The second is Hunter SOUL Assassin, which still is a bit of a working title at the moment. But it's a manga featuring two best friends in our world's society, but decades into the future. Humanity has learned of the existence of Reiki, a spiritual energy within them once thought to be pure fantasy. With Reiki Arts, society takes a new growing direction over the years, with the foundation of Esper Arts and Magic Arts soon to come once it's found that Reiki's property can change under certain circumstances. While many world problems have simmered down, the issue of crime and corruption still lay low, but ever so dangerously in the shadows. A once disbanded assassin's guild reformed under a new purpose serves to secretly seek out and snuff the "Hidden Era of Darkness" once and for all, to which one of these two friends may already hold a connection toward in the first place.

9. For this previously mentions series, on what platform would you like it to be released? Such examples may be a certain TV channel, streaming services (like Netflix), popular comic companies, novel publishers, etc.
Well, as all Persona games do, the PlayStation would receive this title. But I'd also be appreciative if Persona 4S could get released for Xbox One, as Kingdom Hearts 3 is will be the first of the core series to release on a Microsoft console (finally). Since the only Persona game I have is Persona 4 Arena for my Xbox 360, I'd love if both consoles could get a bit of equal spotlight for that idea.

Hunter SOUL Assassin I would probably want to be published by Shueisha. I can't think of other Japanese publishers at the moment, so that comes to mind first. If I were to have it published in North America first, either Dark Horse Comics, Noir Caesar or +Manga (PlusManga). Fellow deviant, ElyasArts happens to have his series GRAN TERRA published by Noir Caesar, and I believe fellow deviant Moffett1990 founded the latter, which honestly is really cool.

10. Which composer/band would you want doing the OST?
Shoji Meguro for Persona 4S, in addition to myself as well. But especially Shoji, since he has been a longtime composer to the Persona series. I have no idea for Hunter SOUL Assassin, at least nothing specific. But I do have a few potential ideas for that.


Jeez, I really tend to get carried away with some answers if my mind really wants me to say many things. :XD: My apologies for that. But anyway, here are the questions I will ask to those I tag. I think I'll borrow some of the ones Vortex asked me since I liked them.

1. What got you into drawing art in general (be it fanart, artwork, photography, etc.)?

2. If you are an anime fan, which series got you into the medium? Also, is there a manga that you would want to see get an anime adaptation, or an anime to get a manga adaptation? [Latter is optional.]

3. Which underrated series (be it a book series, TV series, anime, etc.) would you like to make more popular?

4. Which series would you say is severely overrated?

5. What's a series you'd want to try watching, whether you like it or not in the end?

6. Aside from art, what's something you like to do that you really enjoy?

7. Pick one character you created/own. Who would you like to see be the voice of them if given the chance?

8. What's an OTP (or favorite pairing) that you not only adore, but also gives inspiration, meaning or anything of the like to your life or work? [Optional: Name a reason why that is.]

9. You are given the opportunity to create a series for a company. The series can take any form (live action, animation, video game, comic, etc.). What would you choose as the premise?

10. Who is a series creator that you really want to meet, even if for just a moment?


Thanks once more, Vortex. Here are the people I'm tagging:
:iconartycomicfangirl:, :iconrainstar-123:, :iconeric-arts-inc:, :iconryokozchan:, :iconhoneyegg:, :iconriverfl0w: (because it's been a while :lol:), :iconcarameja:, :iconrt912:, :iconz-anoziraashakage-z:, and :icongogglewearingfreak: (if you're up for it, Blue :)).

I'd like to also nominate :icongaijingoombah: and/or :iconthegeckoninja: if any of them are up for it. If not, that's perfectly fine. :thumbsup:-:D
Have a great day, everyone!

What's this now? Where'd you get Super Saiyan Blue Goku with the Kaio-ken x100? Is this a video game, or an art piece? :lol:
