A polar bear eating marshmallows in a snow storm.. by Jessica-Rae-3

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. However, to my eye, this piece is clearly worth a million words if not more. The way in w...


This is in regards to losing a loved one.
"And when you lose them, they will be taken away as quickly as possible to be disposed of, and then you will be charged." -No Sense Potato-

This is in regards to taxes.
"What a world we run. A world which charges for bringing forth life. A world which charges for owning property. A world which charges for owning a roof. A world which charges for your death. And a world which charges that which you leave behind, as if you hadn't paid all the charges on it already. What a world we run." -No Sense Potato-

And this is in regards to........ well, it is probably obvious.
"And sometimes I feel that... existence is futile. But then I look around and I see all of the people that care. And all I can think is... if a bunch of unaffiliated people come to similar conclusions, then there must be something to it." -No Sense Potato-
No Sense Potato 7/26/2016
I know I have been away for a long time. I have been extremely busy with life. I plan on eventually coming back. But until then.... have some more No Sense Potato quotes.

:iconq-arts: Better beware, you will have a storm of comments when I finally reemerge. :iconbladeofblack: you too.  And :iconwestlylafleur: as well. Hope you three have been well. And I look forward to when I have time to go through all of the art you have submitted since last I was on. Until I have more time to do so while not incredibly tired... have fun and enjoy life the best you can~ I am glad to know you all, even if we don't talk much and if it has been so long. You all inspire me in ways. Thank you for existing and sharing yourselves.
I hope one day I can learn to be myself again.... and share myself some more as you each have been doing. I have so many things I could share. Just lately........ I have been slipping into darkness even further.... and now I am having to fight even harder than ever to stay around.
I apologize for my disappearance without word. I've been quite busy for months now. Then as of last week, my dad passed away. It's been even more hectic around here, and I believe I will be even more busy for who knows how long now. It has been tough, and I can only imagine it will get tougher with time for various reasons.

Anyway. I hope you all are holding up fine. As for me, well... I guess I'm as okay as I can be. I was planning to return here some time, but that plan MIGHT be delayed now as things get busier on my end. I... don't really know what else to say. I wish I could keep up with all of your art and writings, I've just been too busy, and I'm sorry.

Not sure what else to say right now... so I'll just leave it with that. I really hope you all are doing well.

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? I first made my account in 2011 at some point, after many people had sent me photos to look at on DeviantArt. But I didn't become active until late spring or early summer of 2012. So three or four years, whichever you count.

  2. What does your username mean? Quite a lot, really. But simply put, it means something like, "In the darkness, but not consumed by it." Finding hope despite being in the dark, and holding onto that hope to keep going. Something like that, anyway.

  3. Describe yourself in three words. Curious. Enigmatic. Quiet.

  4. Are you left or right handed? Right handed, though I'd like to become ambidextrous, if I could ever take the time and effort to train myself to do such.

  5. What was your first deviation? A screen shot of my character from the game PSO2.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? Uh, digital I guess. Little life snippets of my character Sammy and his friends. I don't really draw enough to really know what I really enjoy drawing. Unless writing counts, then writing is my favourite. And specifically writing short stories that can inspire people and make them think about stuff, and use their imaginations all at once.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? A different art style? Regarding drawing, yes? Then I would most definitely want to master my own type of art style instantly. I don't know what it is yet, but, so long as it includes capability of drawing anything I can imagine, then I would love that. I have issues with drawing perspective, and 3D elements like a character pointing towards the viewer, and a bunch of other things. Perspective would probably be the top priority to learn how to draw though.

  8. What was your first favourite? I believe it was  On mah planet by TellMeIMPrettyxx

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Cute and colourful things. So pretty much :iconsky665: art, and :iconyellowfeatherbolt: art and :iconq-arts: art, along with several others.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? All-time favourite? I couldn't decide one a single favourite. :iconemmi-la-floof: would be one, and :iconwestlylafleur: would be another, and :iconecils: and :iconkanfyetka: and :iconbladeofblack: and especially :iconweirdandlovely: among many, many others that I haven't mentioned yet. If you are reading this, you probably fall under this list for me, so know I find you fantastically awesome.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? My best friend, that's for sure. Beyond that, might be nice to meet some others, but I don't usually do well meeting people in person that I've known online. I'm not usually so great talking in person with people or something.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? Which one? Several have been quite positive. Many have been neutral. A few have been negative. But mostly positive~ Yes, thank you Westly, you have been a big help, so thank you again.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? My hands and eyes and brain along with pen/pencil with paper, and also digital art programs like MS Paint and Paint Tool SAI.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? My head? Anywhere my brain works and I can work on creating what I want without huge restrictions.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? I honestly don't know. Getting replies from Sky665, WeirdAndLovely, WestlyLaFleur, Emmi-La-Floof, and pretty much anyone, where it isn't a solely negative response/reply/comment/message.

    NOTE: If you are reading this, someone failed their task of shooting me before letting me put it up for people to see. You may all kill me now, but I hope you enjoyed anyway~

I like to write, and I'm somewhat learning to draw. Taking time, not putting myself to it too much, but, every now and then at least. That is about all I can really say for now I suppose.

You're welcome~ =] And I'm sure to give feed back in time~ Just a warning, I sometimes end up going months before going through and commenting on people's work. But I shall comment when I comment, so don't be surprised if you suddenly have lots of comments to look through suddenly for lots of stuff. Anyway, whoosh! *thumbs up* Hi!

Hehehe, you're very welcome!! I'm sorry it takes me forever and a half to get caught up on stuff people post. Seriously... I usually don't even get around to going through everyone's work about... well, every 6~8 months it seems. Then I bombard several  users with tons of favourites and comments. But in the last 2 years, it seems to be a relatively growingly consistent thing that I "catch up" every 6~8 months. So as long as you keep posting stuff, I will get to it eventually! And I really like your art and written works! Such inspiration to me!
