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

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

I usually 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.

For the time being I am studying the ancient art of animation in a university hanging low in the nether-regions of the UK.

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.

People who follow my Nuzlocke, how do you prefer my updates? 

259 deviants said Slow and Steady- Longer individual updates, but longer waits in between?
167 deviants said Short and sweet- shorter comics but a bit more frequent?


Horny by Epifex

This is my submission for the GottaDrawEmAll Collab shenanigans-

  Type Collab: Rock - FULL:new: All Pokémon are taken now! Thanks a lot! Though we will most likely need some backups, like always, so please keep signing up. x) The backups will be assigned in this order: New people -> people who have already completed one entry -> people who have already completed two entries (I hope this won't be needed) :new:
It's finally time: The new series of GottaDrawEmAll collabs starts now!
These will be Type Collabs, in which all Pokémon of a type are drawn and get put on a background together. Like this:

Our backgrounds will be based on the type wallpapers in Pokémon-Amie.
Both the normal and shiny versions of the Pokémon will be done, so lots of people can participate. (Except for legendaries and some multiple form cases, you will see how we handle this in each case.)
Dual-type Pokémon will appear in both collabs of their types, of course.

I got shiny rhyhorn, in case you're blind and accessing this page with text-to-speech software.

And before you get your knickers in a twist, glorious leader, don't worry, I'll send you a transparent version in a bit once my headache sorts itself out.

I know there's not been loads of activity from me recently and this is for a couple of reasons, none of which are too terrible and hopefully will be dealt with soon, but I was able to muster up enough time and motivation to get this thang finished.
Even if I'm not 100% satisfied, but then what's new?
Heads up- I'm taking down the Q&A thing in about half an hour. Anyone who wants to sneak a question in should do so now.
Nuzlocke Q+A Questions CLOSED by Epifex
Nuzlocke Q+A Questions CLOSED
Questions are now closed. Thanks everyone for participating.

Just as it says folks. I'm gonna be doing another Q&A comic, but this time I'll be a bit more selective about the questions I take. I'd like this to be higher quality than the last one, but without taking a decade to complete.

I'll change the title when I've stopped accepting questions. While not every question will necessarily be included, it'll also give more people time to ask, which was a little problem last time.

Also- your question will be much more likely to be included if you make it clear who it's directed at. Plus, questions to the whole team or several characters at once are allowed, but bear in mind I won't include loads of those, so if you do that, make it a good one.

Have fun all.

You don't have to give me an exact number or even answer it but I'm super curious, how high was the death count in your Nuzlocke?
Epifex Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2016  Student General Artist
Hmm. I don't really think there's any way I could answer this without ruining some of the tension of the rest of the run. Guess you'll just have to wait and find out.

Alright, just curious haha

Would you like to battle on pokemon sometime? Just for fun? =3 )
Epifex Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2015  Student General Artist
Hmm. Maybe some time? Although I don't battle people much and it's been a while since I've played, so I wouldn't expect much of a challenge.
Alice-Smith Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2015
I'm not a real pro either... but i don't like battling against total strangers with 6 arceus... )
