Awesome art by awesome people.

Surprise! I'm not dead, but I am lacking ideas for drawings. What would you like me to start posting more? (NOT DOING SPECIFIC REQUESTS)

Zipo-Chan's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States

Please do not thank me for llamas, favs, comments, or watches. Your comment WILL be hidden if you do so!

About me:

I'm just a depressed 23-year old autistic artist. I joined deviantART when I was just 14, and largely focused on drawing Chao; creatures from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. My own Chao Character: Zipo the Chao, is my account mascot, and was created a little over a month before creating my account here. I am primarily a Fan Artist, though I occasionally draw more original stuff from time to time. In particular, the Sonic and Pokémon franchises I tend to draw the most fan art of, as they were what I ultimately grew up on, and are near and dear to my heart. Aside from those two, I also enjoy drawing fan art of Keroro Gunsou, My Little Pony G4, and on rare instances, something related to outside franchises.

Please note, that, I suffer from severe clinical depression and social anxiety, among other things. Because of that, I am not likely to respond to comments, or comment on your deviations, should I be watching you. Do not assume that I am being rude just because I don't comment often. Also, while I am a fan of raunchy jokes, DO NOT make autism jokes, or use autism as an insult on ANY of my pages, doing so will result in an INSTANT block!

While I'm nowhere near as active as I once was, I do still hope you enjoy looking through my art.

I do not take Requests, so don't even bother asking.

Art Trades I may consider, but only if you are someone I trust.

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 14, 2018, 9:27 PM
Hokey Smokes, it's been over a year since my last entry!! Well that certainly wasn't intentional. But surprise surprise, I'm still least physically. I'm still continuing my ongoing battle with Depression and Anxiety, as well as a few new problems I've developed in recent times. I honestly don't know what's keeping me going, but whatever it is, I'm glad it exists. But before I go on ranting about my life like I do in almost every journal I post now, let me switch to something I'm sure some of you reading this are probably more invested in.

I really, REALLY want to start uploading stuff again and be more active here, but I just don't have the motivation to do so, or really anybody that I'm close enough with to left here to help encourage me to be more active. Part of that is lacking new ideas; whenever I do get motivation to draw something, it's usually either a remake of an old drawing, or just plain ol' stock art-like drawings (which I pretty much feel is the only thing I can draw at a decent level). I don't even know what I should be drawing anymore, or what people would like me to draw. Of course, I have been doing stuff for Chao Island, but much of that stuff I won't upload here, as I prefer to use my deviantART account for drawings I do on my own time. Either way, when it comes to stuff I post here, I don't know what I should be doing, or what I would like to do.

Part of me feels if I were to do regular, free requests again, that I would get a bit more motivation/ideas, or at least just get used to drawing more frequently, but I ultimately refuse to go back to that, as I would likely get overwhelmed by it. I'm also no longer keen on just drawing something for someone (especially if I don't know them very well) for free, unless I'm feeling generous enough to do gift-art. I might be willing to give Art Trades another try, but I'd have to find people I'd be willing to trust enough to do one with, since in the past I've had some bad experiences with Art Trades that turned me away from them. There's also the fact that I'D have to be willing and able to complete MY end of the trade as well. Point Commissions at this point are out of the question as well, but I seriously do need to consider opening Commissions in the future, as they're probably the only way I'll be able to make money (I'm in no mental state to be able to hold a job right now). I'm on the fence on just about everything, as you can see, so it's tough.

Not that it'll really mean anything in the end, but I've set up a poll asking what people would like to see me post more of, just out of curiosity. While drawing what I want is most important, I don't know what I want right now, so maybe finding what other's would like to see can eventually help me decide what I want to work on...I think. Although, part of me wants to do HM:[M]FoMT fan art, but I suck at drawing humans, and I still don't have any ideas of what I'd do, other than TrentXClaire art. I hope the poll will be a good starting point anyways, and here's hoping that I can eventually get back on my feet, and do something with this account again.

Until next time then~.

Wannabe FAQ

:bulletblue: Hey I like your art! Can you draw me something?
If you're asking for a regular request, then no. Please note that I WILL NOT bend this rule for friends, and if you pester me about finishing any kind of drawing, I have every right to cancel it, and possibly block you if your actions persist.

:bulletblue: Can I draw fan art of your characters?
Sure. Just be sure to send me the pic in a note when you finish it.

:bulletblue: Do you draw anything original?
On occasion I will do original art with original characters, But I don't generally submit them here.

:bulletblue: You draw too much chao/pokemon/keronians/ponies, will you EVER draw something else?
I do draw other things too, just not as often. Also if you've got a problem with the stuff I draw, then I suggest you stop watching me. I draw what I like, not what others like.

:bulletblue: How long have you been drawing for?
This isn't the easiest question to answer since I can't remember my life in full detail. But family photos and personal memories suggest that I first started "drawing" as early as 1 and a half years old.

:bulletblue: Do you have a specific style you try to aim for?
It depends on what I'm drawing. My style is usually heavily inspired by official styles in the series I draw fan art of. With enough time, I generally end up developing my own style.

:bulletblue: Will you watch me?
If you're straight up ASKING me to, then no. Also don't watch me for the sake of trying to get me to watch you, I don't do watch backs unless I like the other artist's works.

:bulletblue: Can we be friends?
Don't ask.

:bulletblue: How often do you come onto dA?
Well I never hit the log out button (unless I'm on someone else's computer), so I guess I'm always on? In reality though, I usually come on several times a day to check my messages and clear my inbox.

:bulletblue: Can we add each other on Discord?
Who I add to my contacts list on Discord is my decision. You can add me if you want, but there'll be no guarantees that I'll add you back, especially if I don't know you that well.

:bulletblue: Can I have your *insert system here* Friend Code?
Again, who I choose to exchange Friend Codes with is my decision. I don't want random people adding me to theirs, which is why I keep mine private.

:bulletblue: How do you feel about your own art?
Personally I don't feel that strongly about it. It's rare that I finish a drawing and am satisfied with it, and even more rare that I actually consider myself proud of a drawing. I don't see my art as being that special, but maybe I'm just blind to my own talent, that's usually how it works right?

:bulletblue: What's your real name?
My real name has been leaked online, but I refuse to disclose it here to those who don't know yet. If you know what my actual name is, PLEASE do NOT go advertising it to others you know or random strangers, I will disown you if you do >:I

:bulletblue: If I know your real name, can I call you by it?
Only people who I know in real life are allowed to call me by my actual name (though honestly I wish they wouldn't online). If you only know me by the internet, then you do not have permission to do so.

:bulletblue: Is there a nickname I can call you?
CXG and Zipz work good enough for me.

:bulletblue: You do realise that "Zipo" is spelt with two "p's" right?
Yes I am aware of the lighter brand "Zippo". I originally used the name "Zipo" as a name for an old FC, and have always spelt it with just one "p", and was previously unaware of the lighter's name. It's still pronounced the same just FYI.

:bulletblue: Can I use your art for something?
Generally I don't like people using my art unless I specify otherwise. However if you give credit, then I'm usually okay with it. Also it helps to know what you want to use it for.

:bulletblue: Can I use your art as a referance?
For character referencing or colour-palatte purposes you are allowed to use my art as a reference. You are NOT however allowed to trace my art or edit it in any way (aside from crops and resizing for avatars, as long as credit is given).

:bulletblue: Can I ask one more question?
Sorry, my hands are getting tired from typing all of this, so no, that WAS your last question. Good bye!
