Impression, Celestia by Muffyn-Man

Before I begin, I'll summarize by saying that this is a fine portrait of Celestia, but I don't feel you accomplished what you set out t...

Slip N Steel by Ratofblades

You did a good job using perspective here, especially on the portrait on the wall. It looks like it's actually flat on the wall. The su...

Sarouna Kimono by riku4

You clearly have put a lot of time into drawing heads and bodies. I love the shape and coloring of her hair; you did a great job shadin...

I love the contrasts and conflicts in this picture. The light and shadow seem to be clashing and swirling around while still retaining ...


1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person has to share 10 things about them.
3. Answer the 10 questions asked to you. 
4. Invent 10 questions the persons you tag will have to answer.
5. Choose 10 people and put their icons on your journal.
6. Go to their page to inform them they are tagged.

8. You have to legitimately tag 10 people.
9. Tag-backs are allowed. 
10. Have fun! 

Ten things about me:
1. I'm a Mormon.
2. I am majoring in computer science.
3. I hope to be a white hat hacker (a.k.a. computer security expert) someday.  I'd like to win a collegiate hacking competition with my college's hacking club someday.
4. I'm an aspiring ocarinist.
5. I love first aid and emergency preparedness, and I love taking classes in CPR, Wilderness First Aid, and the like.
6. I'm active in Minecraft and Guns of Icarus Online.
7. I'm the oldest of four wonderful brothers.
8. I hope to write a fantasy story one day.
9. I'm a hopeless romantic and would like nothing more than to find and marry my true love.
10. My hair has a natural swoosh in the front.  I can't really do much about it.

Questions from Yobuko:

  • Favorite thing to draw?
    People and dragons, though I'm good at neither.  I'm more of a writer and programmer than a visual artist, but I'm not giving up.

  • Do you enjoy watching horror movies or sci-fi shows?
    I love sci-fi shows, but not horror shows.  Horror shows tend to have more idiot balls, plot holes, and gore-fests than I care for.

  • What is your worst High School memory?
    I actually was homeschooled during high school, so I don't have any embarrassing or bad memories of it.

  • What show do you wish you lived in?
    Avatar: the Last Airbender would be really cool.  

  • Can you remember what you were doing this day of last year?
     Not a clue, except I was in school.

  • What would you do if a flying saucer passed by you this very moment?
    Catch it before it breaks and put it back in the cupboard.

  • Do you have stuffed animals? Do you wish they were alive like pets?
     I enjoy collecting plushies, but I wouldn't want them to be alive.  Plushies are your fun and lovable toys, and living creatures are in a different category.  Living creatures have needs.  Toys don't ask anything; they just let you hug them.

  • The world turns into a monster world. What would you be?
    This is a hard one.  I over-think things, so I'd need more information about the situation before choosing my species.  My favorite monster is a dragon, and I'd love to be one (a fire dragon).  Dragons live long, breathe fire, fly, and are smart enough to be civilized.  However, their size may present problems in society.

  • If you had to spend one night, would you rather stay in the Sahara Desert or the Appalachian Mountains?
    No contest--The Appalachians.  Their beauty already attracts many campers and tourists!

  • The Human race will go extinct in 3 days, what do you leave behind to help future colonies identify your century?
   I would leave behind a history tome informing future archaeologists of the exploits of the great warrior-king-dictator-martial arts master Chuck Norris and how he became the world's undisputed ruler.

My questions:
1. What is the best piece of advice you've ever received?
2. List three traits of your ideal lover.
3. What skill don't you have that you wish you had?
4. What might you do today to develop this skill?
5. What Pokémon do you most identify with?  This is different than asking you which one is your favorite!
6. Favorite work of classical literature, and why?
7. What is your Myers-Briggs (MBTI) personality type?  If you don't know, just google it and there are free tests you can take.
8. What is your dream occupation, and why?  You are not allowed to use wages or compensation as a reason for your choice--assume you'll make the same money regardless of your choice. 
9. What real person do you most look up to and why?
10. What have you done in the past week to put a smile on somebody's face?  (Working for your boss doesn't count.)  If you can't think of anything, then go do something and report back.

Hey Qydra~ I've got a blog entry to submit for the group whenever you get a chance to check it out~
Qydra Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh?  Does it not let you publish?  Sure, I'll take a look right away.  

Hopefully, as the summer comes to a close, I'll get more active on dA again.  I've been in Japan these past two weeks.

Nah... It just lets me write it up and then waits to be approved in the queue.

Yeah, that's what I'm hoping for the rest of the group too. Ooh, sounds fancy~ I'll be leaving for Thailand myself in about a month.
