Just a guy who loves drawing =3

I specialize in Pokémorphs, and aim to bring happiness to the people with my drawings and stories. I feel like that's my purpose in life.
Another goal is to inspire people to pave their own road instead of accepting other people's opinions as fact. There's no "right way" to do art. Just follow your heart~

For those who don't feel confident in their skill, know I never had an education in art in any form. Schooling isn't important unless you aim to make it your living (and even then I think a degree says nothing about an artist). Just do what you like! Having fun is the number 1 priority! In fact, I tossed out all of the conventions in art and just did what I was comfortable with. I always just figured everything out on my own.

And don't let anyone EVER make you stop doing what you love. If they feel the need to downplay anyone, then they know absolutely nothing about art. Skills means nothing. It's the passion, the heart and soul behind it that really counts!

FAQ:

Q: Do you do requests/commissions/art trades/gift art/etc.?
A: Sorry, I don't. Had very bad experiences with requests, and commissions just feels wrong to me.

Q: Do you RP?
A: I don't. Neither SFW nor NSFW. Though for NSFW, I only do it in a relationship.

Q: Can I draw/use one of your characters?
A: No, sorry.

Q: Can you add me in an IM?
A: I'd like to know people better via PMs first before I add them.

Q: What gender are you?
A: Male. You can come to my art streams when I draw traditionally if you don't believe me.

Q: Where do you live?
A: Yes.

Q: Yes? YES TOWN? I've never heard of a place like that.
A: That's not a question. ( Okay, I totally made this specific question up =P )

Article 13 Update

on 11 February 2019 at 17:58:45 MST

Hello, furry friends~

Here's an update on the status of the Article 13.
Some new details have surfaced. And it's... even worse than expected.

Basically, we now finally have details on WHICH platforms are affected by this law, and the only platforms EXCLUDED from this law are if they comply to ALL of the following:

  1. A startup that has been active for less than three years
  2. A Website with an annual turnover below €10 million
  3. A website with less than 5 million monthly unique visitors

Please note that this is cumulative. In practice, this just really means that EVERY platform older than 3 years will fall under this new law, which is downright disastrous.

The long story is that while Germany wanted to exclude smaller sites and companies from this law, France wanted every site to fall under this law, which led to a compromise being made, with this as the result.
I'm not even sure if any other country had even a say in the matter, but it's clear that both Germany and France are in powerful positions. Moreso than the others.

Now, while an upload filter is the most "logical" answer, I do admit I overlooked one other option... and that's to essentially ban European users.
In fact, YouTube has said that if they had to implement such an errorneous filter system, they would cease European users from uploading content.

The only good news is that due to increasing protest and pressure on the MEPs, the countries opposing this law increased from 6 to 11.
However, this, unfortunately, is not enough to have a meaningful effect.

As for what's going to happen next, trilogue negotiations will come up in the coming weeks, and the ultimate vote will be held likely somewhere in April or May. That will be our absolute final chance. If the law passes at that point, then we can only hope for a miracle.

As for a small update on the Article 11 law proposal (the link tax), Google experimented with what would happen if they were to comply to such a law, which led to a decrease in traffic to news sites by a massive 45%.

As you're able to tell, if this law were to pass, it would be disastrous.

As the EU elections are coming up soon in March, I would suggest to do research which parties are in favor of this law proposal, and simply refuse to vote on them.

Thank you for reading!
