Doing all kinds of art, random really - keep posted
Doing a sudden spree of endless daily drawings, hope you like C:

I make a lot more scraps than deviations, and you should definitely them out from time to time. Who knows, I might have something new.

Well now. I'm kind of regretting posting fake devs here. Ah well. Can't remove them.

Here is where I'll be posting my stuff. Or at least the stuff I get to posting. Don't forget to check scraps. There's twenty times more stuff there than here.


I just like faving a lot of art and I keep tem in different folders so I can go back on them and see the ones I missed (most) later :3

I like your art, but I just don't have the concentration or the time to go into detail with each one :meow:



I'm writing a short story on a site I discovered a few hours ago. It's coming along great, thanks to the design of the site, and I'm feeling more literally creative than I have in a long time. I'm writing it practically good-copy, and I'll be publishing it in chapters, so as long as nothing goes wrong, I'll be releasing it regularly on both that website and this, and people will enjoy reading it, even if it's just a few people. I hope this is good enough for some people to like it, because I like it myself and I think it shows promise, although if I don't stick to the original premise of the story, it can go offboard pretty quick. I'll have to try to avoid that, while writing is serial all the same, and churning out quality writing every few days until I fill the story's potential. The only important thing is to not get sidetracked - that's all. It's just a short story on simple but enjoyable things, and I have no plans on making it run beyond 6 chapters and 36 pages. Not that much. But it would be a nice little episode. I hope I can get the errors ironed out and have the first chapter out soon, but the storyline is in danger because I have too many ideas, as I've mentioned before. I'd have to do a parody series, or a spinoff, or a continuation of the series at some later date, but this is mostly a one shot. It would be good to keep it that way. I hope I can have it up here soon, and that's all for tonight.

From a Wikipedia article about Google's motto "Don't Be Evil":
"While many companies have ethical codes that govern their conduct in contract, Google claims to have made "Don't Be Evil" a central pillar of their identity as part of their self-proclaimed core values. The words: "Don't be evil" form part of the sixth point in these Core Values, and in full states: "Do the right thing: don't be evil. Honesty and Integrity in all we do. Our business practices are beyond reproach. We make money by doing good things." "

<edit this part>
If I haven't answered your comment in some months (or weeks), then that means that I was probably going to give you an answer, but I forgot what I was going to say and now I feel awkward talking to you. Sorry. I'll try to reply to the recent ones, for the past few months at least, to avoid a comment backup like last time. <whatever, too late, edit this part later>

Personal quotes (random) :

"There is nothing more fulfilling than practicing your craft. You know that."

"Something done should never have to be done again. Unless it's never really done, and it's something that you never finish doing, such as doing art. Then it would be a mistake to stop doing it."

//MY-FACE-WHEN I see my profile page and the state it's in:
Just ignore me, I'll get it cleaned up later (I last cleaned it up in February).

Old stuff:

Art progress:
Literature - ✓
Pixel art - ✓
Stamps - ✓
Map-making Incomplete


Problems with watching too many people:
-Not enough time to look at all their art
-Can't see everyone's section and so forget them
-Watch someone and forget why
-No longer liking someone you watched but forgot


That moment when you have to fave eight deviations just cause they're linked to a bad one...

My first stamp by MiningForDegus
(I made a stamp for this, my first :D)


Going through another cleaning >_>


Folders are getting more organized
Maybe this will mean - sorting?


This ID sucks and is nothing but a collection of text compared to other deviants' :dummy:

Although now, it's undergoing a cleaning. And other things are too. 24/1/2014


I have some servers that I go on for Minecraft and FTB. They are:

Home Server, not currently using (FTB Ultimate SMP)

a theme park (FTB Ultimate SMP)

and now that I can go on Vanilla, here is Arkannix's server (SMP, RPG):



My Second Stamp by MiningForDegus Degu Stamp :3 by MiningForDegus


...Please forgive me for not replying to your comments, I rarely do and I still have ones left from way back in July, and I'm feeling kind of worthless right now artwise so I can't really >_< But thank you for appreciating my interest anyway >_<'' << really sounding the wrong way ;>_>


Map status for all of my maps and my future and attempted maps is this: I don't have good maps, and I can't make good maps either. I might, maybe, actually get back into the mapmaking community by going back and playing about 20 good maps of different genres to warm me back up again and get me back into knowing what a good map is, but I haven't played a map in months. Too bad for me. Just remember that I probably never will be a map maker at this point, unless I get full-time back into it again. Then again, I was never really one. -8/2/2014

Going to post some of my pixel arts to my groups, but not now. Oh well.


I play Feed The Beast Ultimate now, because I can't play Minecraft. Old info

I also go on another Ultimate server called Adventure Ridge, and it's a theme park. Join and have fun.

// Well, now, my Minecraft server is another server called Wispcraft. There are a good amount of people and they're friendly and nice. I'll call that one my new regular server, because I play on it often.

/// And now, I don't even bother going on any other server than Wispcraft, but I'll be waiting for the reopening of Whatever-it-was-called - Discovery Ridge - at the start of February. Gonna be going back to enjoying nice rides. Meanwhile, Wispcraft.
/// Adventure Ridge server is still down ): --1/2/2014


-insert "I only look at devs in small view" stamp-


Sorry guys, but I never congratulate birthdays anymore. If you're looking to me for a Happy Birthday, don't. I don't even pay much attention to my own birthday.


Sorry about not commenting as much as you'd probably like. I prefer to be a fave-and-run guy, it saves time. Although I still comment sometimes, but there are no criteria or rules for that I comment on :3 I hope you understand, just busy, I appreciate the sentiment :3

Right, so I ended up on your page, and I started reading through stuff, and I noticed something you said: "Well now. I'm kind of regretting posting fake devs here. Ah well. Can't remove them."

What do you mean by this? You can delete deviations, put them into vault or even remove them from Featured so that they won't appear in your gallery unless someone checks the All tab. 

1. Vault ( people won't see them anymore and I believe you lose the favs you have on them ): Submit -> Manage Deviations -> select the artwork you want to put in the vault -> hit Store

2. Remove from Featured ( you keep them in your gallery, but then won't appear unless people go to All ): Go to the deviation you want to remove from Featured -> Click Edit -> Options ( under Select Category ) -> Gallery and Group Options -> Deselect Featured -> hit Update

3. Delete: You have the Delete button Next to the Edit one on the right side of the screen's deviation.

Sorry for the long post. Feel free to ignore this if it's stuff you already knew. :iconlazypoolplz:
