Don't forget, this isn't all I've got. I encourage you to browse through some of my older deviations, too! And PLEASE leave your comments!

Random Favourites

I don't have a lot of favorites. Giftart is the only thing I can be counted on to fave; you can find it in the "Friendables" folder.

Critiques

Alright, I suppose it can't hurt to get back into the practice of writing these critique things. Let's see now. The composition of this...


Something about this is different from the style I'm used to seeing from you. Maybe it's the outlines, maybe it's not. But I sort of li...


This is... I'm not a fan of gore, but I can't let this go without comment. Vision: I can't say much about this because I'm not sure wha...

I don't critique much, but I still give more critiques than I receive. But those of you with premium memberships can fix that, right?

Commissions

Short Story (normal)
Self-explanatory.  Tell me exactly what you want, and you'll get it.  I'll write about just about anything, but be prepared to supply any reference materials I request.
Short Story (blind)
Like the normal Short Story commission, but with a twist: you're not allowed to specify a single detail about what you want.  I'll just do something I think you'll like.
Short Story (semi-blind)
The median between normal and blind.  You're allowed to specify one or two details-- the main character, or the theme, or perhaps even the title-- but that's it.
Character
Got a fictional 'verse you're proud of, but that could use one or two more characters?  I'd be happy to make a character for it!  (Pictoral references not available; textual profiles only.)
The more observant of you may have noticed that lately I've been bringing up a particular point a bit more often than before: the point of pride.

I've known for a while that I've been a person of pride, but only a recent event has really caused the notion to hit home.  I posed a writing challenge to Lolocator, and he accomplished it-- but when it came time to write the two fateful words, "You win", I bit my metaphorical tongue.  It felt like some invisible force was preventing me from typing them.  I stared at the screen for minutes before finally managing to deliver the message.

But that wasn't the climax.  The climax was when I mentioned my hesitation to him, and he replied, "Your (sic) a person of dignity. That's really all I have to say."  The revelation that my pride was so visible to others... that was the turning point.

So, yes.  I'm a person of pride.  A startling many personality quirks of mine can be traced back to my pride.  For example, have you noticed how I habitually type with perfect spelling, grammar, and punctuation?  I suspect I developed that habit because I didn't want to leave myself vulnerable to "grammar Nazis".

...maybe that's a bad example.  Let's try another one.

I have a fondness for deconstruction.  I believe I deconstruct things because it leaves me feeling like I understand the concepts better than the ones who use them normally.  (Wow, that sounds cold-hearted.)  I suppose that's not entirely true, though; I like reconstructing things, too, and I also like to encourage others towards reconstruction.

...%&*#$!  Why can't anything ever be black and white?

But back to where we started.  From what I understand, pride is neither an inherently good or an inherently bad force; it all depends on the circumstances.  But I feel like it's implemented all wrong in me.  I'm not always willing to put in the effort to give myself something to be proud of, and I have trouble suppressing my pride when it conflicts with what I'm better off doing.

I've got problems.  But the thing about problems is that sometimes they can solve one another.  (Why did I think that would be an appropriate thing to type?)

Freedom Stamp by sonicinterface
Freedom Stamp
I never really understood bondage.  Fantasizing about being helplessly tied up, chained up, or the like seems to me like a direct contradiction of the whole point of fantasy.  You might as well fantasize about living in a cold, unfurnished cave, or about being deep in debt.

I don't fantasize about helplessness.  I fantasize about freedom, in many respects of the word.  In a roundabout way, that's what led me to create Screech, and the handful of short stories she stars in.

And that's the message this stamp is intended to convey.

The brick pattern is hand-drawn.  The "texture fill" tool in my copy of Seashore is corrupted.  Thankfully, the copy-and-paste worked just fine.

Reminiscence by sonicinterface
Reminiscence
Nancy Deuce let out a heavy sigh as she glanced over the abandoned farm in front of her.  It looked so familiar, and yet so little like the farm she had lived at her entire life up until her abduction.  With nobody to run it since then, though, the farm was in a terrible state: crops had withered from neglect, animals had starved to death in their pens, and farm equipment had rusted in storage.
What a sad sight.  No farm deserves to end up like this.
Getting down on her hands and knees, Nancy found the large wooden sign indicating the entrance to the farm.  Ever so gently, she pulled the sign out with one hand and looked at it up close.  The painted letters of the sign were faded, but still vaguely readable.  A tear fell from the giant cow's eye as she recalled the original sign, its letters freshly painted and without flaws.  She carefully pushed the sign back into the ground, making sure it stood just like it had before.
I guess I'm still the rightful owner of this property, but what can I do with it?  I can't run the farm; nothing here is built for someone my size.  But doing anything else with this land would feel like betraying my family.
Nancy made her way to the old farmhouse, taking care not to trample anything.  She peered into one window, seeing her old bedroom inside.  It looked no better than the farm; the wallpaper was peeling, the bedsheets were moth-eaten, and dust and cobwebs were everywhere.  She could see her old guitar in the corner, no doubt horridly out of tune by now.
How I wish I could walk through the rooms of this house one more time... but I suppose it's not to be.
The cow sighed again as she pushed herself to her feet.  She had lost so much when she and her family had been abducted, and although she'd also gained a few things, she had to remember her past.  This was why she stopped by her old family's farm on a regular basis, to reminisce and remember her old life...
I drew something!  I actually drew something!  And something sad at that.  Well, this was a moment that I felt needed to be filled in.

MightyRay just announced the winners of her contest... and I wasn't among them.  I'm strangely uncomfortable with this.

By the way, I've figured out how to export the xcf file into a png file. Yes, I am an immature little bast(urd)ard.

I'll give you 10 points if you create a code sheet that would be good for law enforcement use over cb radio, using only letters and numbers as pictographs describing the situation.

For example here is one for packages:

E3 = regular package

E7 = damaged package

8B = bundled package

CD = Locked package

HU = opened bundled package

UL = opened regular package


And yes I am very aware of the 10 codes, I'm looking for something almost unbreakable for when I play FPS' together online with my friends.

On a scale of one to ten, how ironic is it that the character I adopted became a fill-in character?
