I draw art when I feel like it except I don't feel like it very much.

I have some music over here:…

I sometimes draw Pokemon and ponies

Have fun


My nonsensical challenge was accepted by BrookRiver and so according to some arbitrary code of honor i just made up seventeen seconds ago i shall respond to her questions

1. do you get sneezy in the spring and if so how do you cope

February was difficult for me because i have chronic rhinitis and a lot of trees decided to unload pollen early. I usually take a Zirtec for my allergies in that case

2. do you like broccoli/other stereotypically hated vegetables and if not can you give me a brief analysis of why

I like broccoli and spinach and stuff, but i've only had brussel sprouts once and hated them, so it's a case-by-case thing for me

3. your preferred operating system on desktop? if not applicable, explain why

I use Windows because Linux is annoying to figure out and Apple demands you use everything Apple, and i'd much rather pretend i have freedom of choice while i am being plagued by a million viruses

4. your preferred operating system on mobile? if not applicable, explain why

Until 2015 i did not have any mobile system, and the one i have now is an Android, so go figure

5. how much do you know about computers?

I know that if the computer takes fifteen minutes before your scroll starts to work then it's probably bad

6. do you get enough sleep? how/why not?


7. what fictional work or body of work is most on your mind at present?

Well let's see, this morning i had breakfast with milk i drank out of Rainbow Dash mug, i am currently wearing a pony shirt, and i am planning later today to watch the newest episode of Friendship is Magic so... probably Majora's Mask

8. do/did you like the books you read for school?

Depends on the books and how interesting they are to me, but most i sell back for money to buy books i need next semester

9. do you read a lot? not just books, like news articles, opinion pieces, whatever

I read a crapton of fanfiction, which is probably a bad thing since i usually forgo homework for the sake of a 200,000 word plus doorstopper

10. what do you feel about the people you knew well years ago but no longer?

Many of my closest friends fall under this category. Oftentimes my bestie will be someone with whom we only share silence and then depart once we're pulled in different directions. I am a very transient person in some ways

11. what's your response when running into people whose minds are incomprehensible to you but are otherwise harmless?

I have difficulty retaining faith in humanity since these people tend to form the rank-and-file of supporters for a cause that clashes with my values

12. how much mental simulation of situations goes on in your head on a daily basis?

Very little since usually i talk to myself out loud about them, which can go on for hours at a time

13. what am i supposed to do with all of these little awards and trophies i got in elementary school for what amounts to nothing in the long run

Go out and buy an olden times cannon and fill it with all the little trophies along with a bunch of silverware and other metal baubles. Congratulations, you now have a cannon loaded with grapeshot


No questions here because my box of creativity is currently empty and waiting for a refill. Should have it all restocked in a week or two
ToothpasteThy is challenging me to actually use my DeviantArt account, how dare he

1. What do you aspire to be in your most wildly ambitious dreams?

It would be really nice if, once i'm old and dead, no one dances on my grave

2. If your dream came true within the next week, how would you react?

Assuming this is meant as a followup to question #1 then that would require me being dead so by definition there wouldn't be much of a reaction

3. A lonely left shoe shows up at your door. What do?

"You gotta pull yourself up by the bootstraps"

4. The current clothing you are wearing has suddenly decided that it will never leave your body for the rest of eternity. Would you dare get soaked by showering to
cleanse yourself the best you can, or continually smell rather badly?

I would be less concerned about smell and more concerned about the fact that clothing is apparently sentient now

5. What instrument played in what way do you think would describe your personality?

Piano not being played at all

6. Would you play a game knowing that you'll fail?

I've played basketball before and i'm 5'7" so

7. Would you face something you fear greatly knowing that you'll overcome it?

Knowing that i'll overcome it would probably not make it all that much of a fear so sure

8. Would you watch the new MLP episode out loud in a public place in 1080p, or all alone in 144p?

As long as the audio wasn't unwelcome in the public place and i could hear clearly enough then i do not care

9. Are Vans the best shoe brand? If you don't think so, then you must do the dance of shame on your pedestal of wrongness.

Vans are only the square root of the answer when the answer is Nike

10. I made new art and am shamelessly plugging it. Can we still be friends? [link removed]

Asking permission indicates that you are not confident in your decision and that is all i am going to type

11. Elevensies?

This doesn't count as a question

12. What drawing or other media creation have you made that you want to redo? Your answer must include a link for our entertainment and your embarrassment. Unless of course you're not embarrassed. In which case you cannot skip question 13.

Literally everything creative i've ever made, not hard to find it

13. (Optional question unless it isn't) Did you know that this initial question is here just so there can be an actual question in this question because the main part of the question technically isn't a question and is rather a demand? Now tell us a story of something that you are embarrassed of!

As i am only obligated to answer the questions, not the demands, yes. And now i'm done

My questions:

1. What is your name
2. Are you sure
3. Are you really sure
4. Are you extra sure
5. Are you definitely sure
6. Are you unassailably sure
7. Are you absopositivolutely sure
8. What's supposed to go in your post signature if you can't type cursive
9. Can you help me steal this pony OC
10. Did you know that i'm lazy
11. Are you sure of that answer
12. Is your name Randal
13. Where is food i am hungry

I tag dinosaur bones

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

Since at least May of 2010

2. What does your username mean?

the old one ArcticYoshi45 came from me liking Yoshis and probably liking the idea that there were desert yoshis and jungle yoshis and, yeah, arctic yoshis. The 45 seemed a good number to append it with.

[EDIT] oh and "NitrateExhaust" comes from me playing a lot of Mario Kart Wii at the time I had the ability to change my username

3. Describe yourself in three words.

What is "self-esteem"

4. Are you left or right handed?

I am not right handed

5. What was your first deviation?

Some lame-ass poem I wrote when I as a teenager. Didn't even rhyme.

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

Music, but that's not uploadable on dA.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

I'd prefer to master the art styles I currently work in, or at least be capable of not hating everything I make. That would be nice.

8. What was your first favourite?

Some random Pokemon Mystery Dungeon comics. Misrepresentation was the first, probably because when I first played through PMD Red Rescue Team, when I finished the main game, the flag that my team had as my partner was sitting depressed in front of it was the Wobbuffet one. Made me laugh even though I was crying since I had absolutely no idea that the ending was coming (shut up, I was like 14 lol).

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

Still mostly Pokemon, but it's earned a lot of pony crap over the past couple of years.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

No idea. First name that comes to mind is BrookRiver for consistency

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

No idea. I guess I'm meeting FritzyBeat in a few weeks, so him?

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Buffalo-Brony drew a commission for me once and I still use it as an avatar on a couple sites.

...Yeah I got nothing for these, lol

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

Gimp and Inkscape whenever I get around to making crap.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

99% of my creative process is spent on my bed because I don't have a desk, hahahahahaheehoohuhaheh

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

I forget the specific one but on one of my worse nights a vector group requested several of my pony traces to be submitted to them. Kind of helped bring me out of the mood I was in at the time.

MCMIAG - Ice Cube Style by NitrateExhaust
MCMIAG - Ice Cube Style
This is a part of an older deviation of mine. It's one of the only parts of that deviation that I honestly like how it turned out.
Tagged by BrookRiver.

Rules (which you are free to butcher as much as you want, because seriously who's going to come after you?):
1) You must post these rules.
2) Each person has to share 10 facts about themselves.
3) Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for the 10 you tag.
4) Choose 10 people and put their icons in your journal. 
6) Not something like, "You are tagged if you read that."
7) You have to legitimately tag 10 people.
8) No tag-backs.
9) You can't say that you don't do tags.
10) You MUST make a journal entry! No comments.
11) Bet you didn't notice there was no #5.

Couple of points I'd like to make. First off, no, I'm not going to tag ten people, foh. Second, I don't know who all would be surprised at not noticing that there was no number 5, but I'm pretty sure the number of people who rolled their eyes at that is much larger.

Ten facts:

1. I'm only allowed to be hipster about Pokemon
2. Ponies are pretty cool
3. Hip hop is pretty cool
4. I don't visit DeviantArt much except to check messages
5. Don't ever get a Tumblr unless you're steadfast in your beliefs of equality because they will turn you against white cishet males SO hard
6. That wasn't really a fact about me, but I'm not interesting enough to list facts about
7. You are Satan's spawn if you don't like Roast Beef Subway sandwiches
8. East Coast over West Coast, but just barely
9. My name is not Durwood
10. Ponies are still p cool

Own questions:

1. How would you describe yourself as a deviantART member?


2. How would you describe yourself as a person?

Someone who doesn't practice what he preaches

3. How would you describe your relationships with others?

Relationships? What relationships

4. What causes do you support and why?

Peace, love, unity, having fun

Afrika Bambaataa was the man

5. Could you give us an idea of the kind of music you like?

go crazy

6. What creative skills do you excel with?

I'm good at many, great at none

7. Is the cup half empty or half full for you? (or glued to the ceiling?)

I pour my cup into others' half-cups so they can't try this kind of philosophy question on me

8. How tolerant are you?

I'm not very tall

9. What do you think others like about you?

iunno, money?

10. Do you believe that our lives have inherent meaning? If so, what is it, and if not, how do you cope?

It would be nice if after I die people wouldn't dance on my grave, but I'm donating my body to science just to make sure

Thanks Thy. Give Jeff Burgess the credit for the idea, I'd asked him for something to make a logotype for and he gave me Zecora's Potions.
