No this is not what I ordered at all

I promised witchboys! And I lied. That is a thing I do, I lie. I lie about where those stains came from, or what I was doing last night, and I lie about the dumb things I put on my blog. I actually got ahold of some animation stuffies. I promptly went on a spree of poorly drawn scribblegifs, because scribbling is what I do best apparently.

Most of these were requests from people on NG.

Someone's yellow/devolved Yarrul, dancing. This was actually drawn later, when I cared enough to stay inside the lines, haha.

Dancing blooper. A lot of these are "dancing ___" actually.

Bnowhunon riding a giant possessed potato.

Candypanda eating cheese.

A cow eating grass! I tried to make it a little more complicated, because the person who requested it had drawn me this earlier, but it ended up dumb and choppy and I forgot to color in the udders. A++

This was the first one I did, someone asked for a duck. But... this is the only kind of bird I can draw.

 A unicorn. I arbitrarily decided to style it after one I was familiar with, but realized a bit too late that unicorns and pegasi are in fact not the same thing.

A friend's dog dancing.
Superboy punching a wall.

I just combined two requests here, a cat tapdancing and a cat chasing a butterfly. So... it's a cat tapdancing at a butterfly.

Some kind of barn owl. I drew a brown penguin about four times before deciding I should look at what barn owls actually look like.

This was the finale between an epic battle between myself and friend, who happens to be an admin on Neurogalaxy! It began with some comments about Jason Todd, afterwhich admin powers were abused to assault my effigy in his name, efforts that were deftly countered and then once more.

I believe I have emerged victorious from that battle.

Who ordered a pile of scribbles

I feel like this picture describes the following post perfectly. Actually, it describes a lot of things I do.

(I've had these pictures taking up space on my HD, I figured I might as well toss them somewhere, haha.)

Various pokemon drawn for various reasons.

Fat Griffo you are so fat how do you even fly you are ridiculous

Some silly AU stuff I couldn't be arsed to finish.

Drawn in response to this. I'M COMING FOR YOU, VALENTINE.

That's all my mouse-drawn scribbles, at least. I finally got around to setting up the scanner I got for christmas, so I have a few comics waiting for be colored.

I have noticed that the quality of the scanner doesn't seem up to par with my old one, which is fantastic because this one probably cost about five times as much. Here's a panel of this, directly from the scanner;
Pencil and a dark blue marker that came out white and bright blue. On one hand, it makes the paper white where scans from the other one were grey and grainy. But it also brightens everything else in a way I don't like.

Ah well, it doesn't make that much of a difference. I hardly ever post things that I haven't digitially reinked anyway.

Next post will probably be nothing but witchboys, because I have a problem.

This post is about my pigtails

My family is the best and no one will ever convince me otherwise.


Well I've had it for a while but never bothered putting up any kind of navigation, haha. Pages were linked from were they were relevant to, but I guess... it's good to have a homepage sort of thing?

I will probably make a page for my art/writing, but that will have to wait until I can draw/write something that is worth anything, sob.

I find it kind of pathetic that 100% of things hosted on the site are related to Neurogalaxy. Speaking of NG!

A goofy little thing drawn on the Oekaki in response to someone submitting troll posts to complain about the lack of moderation.One of their main points, sandwiched between BAWWW MODS ARE LAZY and EVERYONE ELSE IS SO IMMATURE AND DUMB was that too many people were submitting little noncommital scribbles.


(I have drawn way too much today but have finished almost nothing hnnghhh)

A drug that herps you derp

Not doing much around here. Cleaning my room up a bit, I've been stretching this task over several days because my room is a disaster area. There's boxes of clothes, hats, trash and paper everywhere... I really need to take better care of it. It's better now than it's been in a long time, but it's still not good enough.

I have been playing Yume Miru Kusuri in my spare time, though.

I followed the Aeka path because I felt like I'd be able to relate/sympathize with her the most. It... wasn't what I expected. I had seen CGs from the game online, specifically of Aeka and Kouhei strangling that ginger girl- Nanjou? That's honestly what sparked my interest in the game in the first place.

Aeka's situation was so ridiculous that I found it extremely hard to sympathize with her at all. Nanjou's boyfriend flirted with her, and Nanjou decided to devote the next several years to making the girl's life a hell. But... everyone, including Nanjou, KNEW that the boy had not only hit on other girls but had sex with them.

Why the hell did Nanjou target Aeka? There are plenty of girls who did much more than just accept his affections. I suppose we can proceed with the idea that Aeka was the first, and/or also the closest of these girls.

The concept of a "Queen Bee" in anything annoys me a lot. Those don't... exist. I have been in both extremely large and extremely small highschools. Only in the small one did something like a queen bee exist, and even then it was just a very shallow and manipulative girl. She fucked around with some of my friends, then we cut ties with her. She tried slandering us, but that didn't work because this is real life. In the end she just went to fuck around with the Sophmores instead.

That's the closest thing a person will realistically come to imitating this trope. Knowing that and experiencing it, I couldn't believe Nanjou's character at all.

That is the problem with things set locally, I guess. Making a character in highschool can make them more relatable, but putting them in an acutely specific situation will isolate people whose experiences differ. I couldn't get into Aeka's story because my own experiences with bullying are so vastly different from hers that it simply didn't seem believable to me.

A much broader example is The Big Bang Theory. It gets a lot of shit from the "nerd" community. The writers have created a cast of gamers and comic book fans with very sparse knowledge of how they actually act. While people who have no experience with this don't see a problem, those who are actually gamers and comic book fans find it incredibly grating.
