"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-
Hide and Seek with EmotionsHide and Seek with EmotionsHide and Seek with Emotions by 999inthedark
For as long as I can recall, I've avoided my own emotions. Afraid that if I were to act out on them, it would cause more harm than good. When I had a crush on a girl, even back at age 6 or 7, I avoided her so I would not annoy her by unwanted attention.
I flooded my brain with reading and video games. I suppressed my emotions. I hid from them. I pretended they did not exist. Though at age 8, an emotion popped up one morning, when I noticed how my family didn't pay much attention to me. I decided that day to go a whole day without speaking, and figured they wouldn't notice. I almost made it, but happened to need to speak to get supper that particular day.
When the day was finished, I forgot about it for the longest time. I went back under my blanket I had set up, to keep my emotions from finding me. Distracting myself from whatever emotions were near. My way to help the world, was by denying myself as a human being. Shutting off my emotions so they could neve
Happy holidays from deviantART!Happy holidays from deviantART! by Heidi
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art
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.
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.
Describe yourself in three words. Curious. Enigmatic. Quiet.
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.
What was your first deviation? A screen shot of my character from the game PSO2.
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.
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.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? All-time favourite? I couldn't decide one a single favourite. would be one, and would be another, and and and and especially 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.|
