Hey, thanks for dropping by. Welcome to my bio.

I'm basically your average lazy artist. I like video games, food, sleep and drawing. I'm currently working on my Pokemon Emerald Nuzlocke run, which constitutes about 70% of what I'm posting at the minute, but I also like to draw the odd comic or doodle on other things, be they video games, dumb puns, or just mildly amusing stuff going on in my life. I have been known to do drawing livestreams on occasion.

If you don't know what a Nuzlocke is and you're interested, you can find a brief description at nuzlocke.com/challenge.php

The Nuzlocking community is awesome and y'all should join in the fun.

I currently reside in the innocuous little hovel of a town known as Abingdon, hanging off the crusty rear-end of the much more well known city of Oxford.

As of now I am doing an art foundation course in a local college and ultimately intend to move on to study animation in university.

I try to read every single comment I receive, be it on my profile or on my submissions. If I don't reply, please don't take it personally, I really do appreciate the input. The fact is though that I cannot possibly reply individually to every single one without sounding extremely repetitive - there are only so many times I can say "Thanks" before I start sounding like a broken record.

That being said, please feel free to post your honest thoughts, critical or otherwise. So long as you're not explicitly rude, I don't mind. I have a pretty straightforward way of typing, but please don't let that put you off talking to me, I like to think I'm fairly easy to get along with. I will also endeavour to answer any specific questions or particularly interesting comments that I can. If you ask a question and I don't answer, please don't feel afraid to ask again; as I said before, I can be forgetful. By all means talk to me in a note if you'd prefer.

I'm generally up for commissions. There's a little more info' on that elsewhere on my profile. Go ahead and drop me a note if you're interested.

I try to always return llamas. Sharing is caring.
I don't generally do those tag journal things though, except for from close friends. That's not to say that you're forbidden to tag me, just please don't take offence if I don't repost it.

I'm totally aware that loooooads of my "art", particularly the older stuff, is horrible. Like, makes-you-throw-up-very-slightly-when-you-see-it horrible. But that's OK, improvement is part of any artist's journey, and you can't improve if you weren't terrible at some point. Something something Einstein quote.

But yeah, keeping up the old detritus preserves a sort of visual diary of my improving over the years, even if it does make the gallery look a little gross and cluttered towards the last page or two. It looks horrible and I'm sorry, but it's all for the grea'er good.

The grea'er good.

If you've read this far and seen some of my stuff and for some reason you somehow haven't already been driven away from boredom, congratulations, and fear not, it's nearly over.

I do have a Twitter, which ought to show up below. I don't Twitter. Like, at all. I think I have like two or three tweets max. Over like, three years. Like there's legitimately no reason to follow me on it at all. Still, I'm not gonna stop you.

I'm just sayin', you're going to be disappointed if you do.

Also literally the same applies to my Tumblr. Hell if I know how this damn site works, I just made an account to take the dumb username in case someone else stole it.

This is the end. I'll put you out of your misery now. Go away. Read a book. Find true love. Live your life as you see fit. The world is your shellfish. Find freedom in this canvas.

As of yesterday afternoon, my college work is officially completed. Done, dusted, never to be glanced at again if I have anything to say on the matter.
I mean, there's still the marking to happen, where a bunch of grouchy old art teachers decide whether or not I can go to uni', and to be honest that's pretty scary. I'll get the results for that in maybe a week. I'm one part extremely relieved that I'm finished, and another part extremely anxious that I'm not gonna cut it, but there's nothing I can do about that now, so might as well focus on what I can do.

And that means that now on, for the next couple of months at least, my life should be way easier. Still the odd little technicalities I gotta deal with, but nothing huge or that difficult. 

Which means more art!

I can finally devote 95% of my time to pursuing stuff I want to do, which means it's gonna be a lot more fun from here on out. More art practice, more improvement, more streaming, more games and stuff, and once I get rolling, more Nuzlocke updates. Woohoo!

I'm also going to visit this nerd --> :iconakialyne: <-- in a couple of weeks, in the glorious nation of France, which is gonna be awesome. She's pretty much planned out my entire schedule on the trip down to the second.

I'll soon be re-opening up commissions and finishing the ones I've currently got- sorry for the wait guys, and thanks for being understanding. Over the holidays, commissions will be faster too, since I can spend more time working on them and less on college stuff. I'm gonna try to clean up that godawful text-wall in the description of the commission info too.

All in all, I'm really excited for the upcoming few months. Feels like forever since I've had a break this long, and I'm gonna spend as much of it working on my art as possible. I'm also looking forward to spending time with you guys in streams.

Anywho, that's it for now.
Later all.
Anyone got a spare render farm hanging around that I could borrow? That'd be sweet.
Don't suppose anyone who sees this has any experience with stuff like After Effects and would be willing to help me out a bit?

Epifex, It is okay if Thomas (and Douglas) make a cameo in my Nuzlocke comic?
