Doing all kinds of random art

I have a lot more scraps than deviations, and some of them are actually art.

Should I move the screenshots out of devs or not?

Here is where I'll be posting my stuff. Or at least the stuff I get to posting. Also stuff in scraps.


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 trying to make 8 sketches for a portfolio needed to enter the Algonquin College Animation program. I haven't done anything until today, and the gestural drawing I just did took over 10 minutes to complete with basic shading. Every time, looking at the level I'm supposed to be at to enter the program is very discouraging. I'd like some advice or support to get me through this. I'm planning to do a gestural sketch every other day until I'm able to do a more detailed person. I might decide to post what I do on here to mark progress.

Here's the list of requirements with examples:…
And here's the kind of sketches I'm trying to be able to do in a month or so:…

I'll try my best, but there's also animation and regular drawing to do. Any progress I make will be posted.

Will clear this up tomorrow, not doing it now because I can't save the junk to my computer

Edit: slowly cutting down on the stuff in this description, cause most of it is random stuff that isn't important anymore or is just annoying

50% done 14Jn'15

Checklist of things to do:
- Answer old comments - will not do
- Follow up on formatting page and profile pages - in progress
- Get a decent Blender tutorial and watch it - in progress
- Create a Minecraft animation test and upload a link of it here - not done yet
- Look into recording for osu, one that actually works - found one - XSplit
- Format YouTube channel - not yet, uploading and organizing content first
- Decide which videos to go first and which will follow after, if ever - later
- Work on silk regularly (like every week at the least) - I'm not doing silk anymore, because it's just doing easy art for pageviews and I'm doing digital art now
- Work on manga/anime drawing and upload some to deviantart - working on drawing people first
- Upload some of Art class work to deviantart - if I ever do this, it'll be after going through everything else first.
- Upload all unused and unuploaded artworks to deviantart (there are still ones from 2013 you haven't enjoyed, you know) - later maybe
- Clear out screenshots and pick out images which are suitable for uploading - what?
- Take a camera outside and take some photos, the month is almost over, for crying out loud - missed some good photos in early october, and this month as well, but those times are gone - I'll just try to remember to take photos of things when I see them
- Prepare for Halloween stuff (costume, devs, etc.) - hahaha, I never prepare for holidays anymore, so this will be just art if anything
- Work on uploading an actual original art from recently - doing art now, no worry
- Draw with piq again (making icons for Android applications, so can't be long) - no more programming being done, but I might get into pixel art again eventually
- Work on professionalism within silk (actually draw things to look like things, not like fractals) - maybe if I started it again, but I ave no aspirations to become a professional silk artist
- Work on new user profile/profile image/theme - nope, not yet, and I'm not even premium
- Work on new sig, devs, etc. - yep, yep, doing it now
- I'm writing the same things over again, it's late here and I don't want to stay up (3:55 am)
- Go to bed early (get more sleep)
- Work on precision for osu
- I don't even care anymore, I'm just writing the same stuff and unimportant stuff and I have to go to bed
- So I'll leave you here
- If I have any more important goals to add I'll add them
- Goodnight
- *Snores and wishes never stayed up late again*

I'm answering everyone's comments and replies right now, but anything older than when I started will remain forgotten. Sorry. 14/7/2015

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."

Old stuff:

Problems with watching too many people:
-Not enough time to look at all their art
-Forget people that aren't on the front page
-Watch someone and forget why
-No longer liking someone you watched but forgot

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. They are:

Home Server, go on semi often (Minigames server with spleef)

Another spleef server: (Also has other minigames - beware the chat)

A server I go on for a bow minigame:

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 now go on the Jerry&harry minecraft server to spleef and occasionally play some other games. This ip is: I used to play a survival server run by Shinysapling at, but it's closed now since nobody really comes on. :( -- 30/5/2015
