I'm not the best, but I aim to get better! Please, have a stroll through my gallery. All children left unattended will be drawn and studied closely.

A bit of a warning though: I experiment a lot, so quality ranges throughout the whole gallery.

Yo yo potatoes!

So I'll cut to the chase. Millenium-Lint is doing their Senior Thesis and really needs help gathering data for it! Basically all you have to do is play a short game then answer a survey about it. It's really easy and it took me like a maximum of 10 minutes, so you won't be wasting any of your precious time otherwise surfing aimlessly in the void of the internet, haha!

They are also holding a 300 point raffle for all that enter, so that's another incentive, but really go help a person out!
Spread the word if you can, the more the merrier.

Here's the journal:  URGENT-Looking for participants (300 point raffle)    As you may or may not know, I am working on my senior thesis and I really need participants to help me finish my data collection. All you have to do is play a short game and take a short survey afterwards. Everything is completely anonymous and will take about 5 to 10 minutes. I am studying gender portrayal in video games and stereotypes. If you sign up and complete the study, I will put your name in a raffle for 300 points. If you manage to get another person participate in the study, I'll put your name in twice. Please, I really need to complete this soon in order to pass senior year. 
Note me or comment on this journal if you'd like to participate and I'll note you the links.
Thanks people, spread the word.

Character Design Exercise by dizzyrin
Character Design Exercise
I'm trying to get better at character design, as well as find my own style. So! I created a challenge for myself, just to quickly create a few characters that look completely different from each other in face and body structure, and it turned out well!

Not sure what they are looking at though...

TAGGED BY KayVeeDee so let's do this chums. Looks like fun!
 
RULES:
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.) 
5) Go to their page and inform them that they have been tagged by you.
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.

FACTS:


1) I have very good balance! Coming from the days I had to stand on the bus when all of the seats were taken. That doesn't sound impressive, but I only had one free hand while the other held my folder with all my books, and not to mention the bus driver doesn't slow down for speed bumps or corners. So. Many. Corners.
2) I am very, very thin, and incredibly white. Like... I guess I look like a rice noodle. Once I went to a family reunion thingo, and someone asked my parents if I was sick because of how I look? Like wow, that was insensitive. But it's alright, I'm used to it.
3) When I have a lot on my mind, I subconsciously try to put my hair up? Without a hair tie. Just pulled up with my fingers. It helps me think better or something, I don't know?
4) I have only been overseas once! I hope to change that though.
5) I would love to live in a tiny house in a forest by myself, made out of shipping containers or something!
6) My imagination goes wild when I'm alone to my thoughts. I create unbelievable scenarios about my current whereabouts and freak myself out occasionally. I hope that's a way for my mind to keep me safe or something, hahaha!
7) I get excited by things that make other people scared, like spiders and thunderstorms and exams and such. I seem to get really happy when everyone around me is nervous, hahaha!
8) I have a really strange thing where I'm absolutely terrified of centipedes, but I really really want to like them and study them. They just give me sweaty palms and make me anxious when they are around though, not to mention I do this really sweet looking tiptoe action when I step away from them, haha! I think I know the reason I'm so scared of them, but it's really embarrassing and I don't want to say it, haha
9) I am obsessed with people who have dark skin. I'm not sure if it's an artistic phase or something, but gee! The colours are so beautiful! When I'm out and about I tend to stare a lot at people with dark skin and I really hope I don't look creepy or that they think I'm racist or something, that would be horrible.
10) Following on from the last one sorta, I am an avid people watcher. I especially love looking at people's noses, and the way everyone interacts with everyone else. It's just so interesting! I try not to stare, especially if there is someone who looks as if they'd be self conscious about something, but I really can't help it. I just hope people don't think I'm a sick creepy girl who stares at noses, eyes, chests, proportions, etc... I'd love to sketch people as I see them but that's also a bit creepy.

KayVeeDee's Questions:

1. What flower's scent do you most strongly associate with a good memory (and yes I expect you to tell us that memory too~)?

Hmm, I like this question! I'd have to say the lovely smell of the Lily of the Valley flower. Not only is it my birthflower, but it looks super cute too! Ok, so the memory I associate it with... When I was in kids club at church, we had these markers with different scents that we'd use for the bible study and drawing and stuff. I picked the green ones always because green is my favourite colour, and I picked up this emerald-coloured one (because birth stone why not). Once my friend and I realised that it smelt AMAZING we both fought over it every time we needed a marker, haha! I guess it was just really fun for me to try and get that marker before anyone else, and I feel like it's special to me as well.

2. Aliens or Unicorns?

Hnnggg... I like Aliens because they are kinda scary... But anything other than looking at/drawing space freaks me out so I'd have to pick Unicorns. Unicorns are also not as innocent as they would have you believe, which suits me I think mehehehe

3. If you were suddenly turned into your least favorite animal, what would you do?

Cry. Hahaha! No I'd probably have heaps of fun trying to coordinate one huNDRED CREEPY LEGS
And you know probably climb up walls and junk, fun things. Make the most of it!

4. What do people tell you about your personality that you disagree with? If applicable.

I can't think of anything off the top of my head, but I guess there are a few people who underestimate me and think they know me back to front which really makes me want to kick something. Uh, for example, thinking I'm more naive than they think. Like sure, I'm clueless and I have to go on Urban dictionary sometimes to figure out what everyone's talking about but I've probably heard more swear words than you can imagine and know what they mean?

5. Why did the chicken cross the road

He recently moved in to his new apartment and wanted to visit his FLAT MATE HAHAHAHAHHAHAA

6. What is your opinion on the current state of the economy of your home country? 

Umm... I'm not quite sure what's happening to be honest. We should be spending money on the things that, you know, NEED to be done and not going 'Hey School is important so here's some money, go build something educational!' as opposed to supporting the actual schools and universities oh gosh.

7. If you could run for office, would you? If so, what would you run for?

I don't think I would, I'd just keep complaining and elect better people or something pffthaaha~

8. You're in a band! What's it called?

PHOTOCHEMICAL SMOG! That's totally the band that my friend and I made up. Our EP has the songs 'Where did all the glitter come from' and my personal favourite, 'Give me my groove back because my life and purpose of a human being is not to become stressed over mundane and purposeless tasks for studies that I will not need for the majority of my life choices' but shortened to 'GMMGB BMLAPOAHB INTBSOMAPT FSTIWNNFTMOMLC'
Pretty much. We're on the lookout for more song inspiration so...

9. What is the most underrated color?

Teal! It's so nice, but I hardly see it anywhere! Or maybe maroon. I like both and they are nowhere. Oh, another one is mauve, but that one is just a bit weird.

10. How much chocolate is too much?

WHEN YA GET SICK
Otherwise you fight those dementors yo.

My Questions:


1) What creature or concept (specifically mythological) frightens you the most?
2) What thing turned into a movie would make you extremely happy and make you want to watch it, if it was done well and accurately? Like a franchise, a concept etc.
3) If you were suddenly caught in a zombie apocalypse, what items, specifically only from your home, would you use to fend off the oncoming horde of the dead?
4) If you could talk to a video game character whenever you liked, who would you talk to?
5) What is your current favourite song artist? Alternatively, what do you find yourself listening to the most these days?
6) Do you have a nickname that is nothing like your given name?
7) Given the choice, would you die resulting in all cancer being cured, or live forever?
8) What is a nostalgic sweet for you? Why?
9) What is a food you like that others think is disgusting?
10) If someone foreign came to your country, what food native to your country would you offer them first?

She owns you by dizzyrin
She owns you
When you associate with Deidre, you'd better be well dressed! She can probably bite your head off if you aren't. Also, it isn't Deidre without dramatic lighting.

So this picture was inspired by a really cool vintage picture I saw on the internet somewhere, and the main girl in the middle looked so badass I had to adapt it to Glitch-Republic! Also I really wanted to draw all of the current residents in the Republic. We're a little bunch, but I assume the characters all know each other by now, at least by face and probably reputation. COUGHDEIDRECRAZYBIOLOGISTCOUGH Regardless, this was just a fun picture so make of it what you will.

I've been painting this on and off between exams, and I put a lot of time and effort into it. I hope it shows! I loved drawing everyone, and I hope you don't mind that I dressed them up a bit, that was fun to do~ I'm not quite sure exactly what their heights are in comparison to each other, so I estimated due to species and proportions. I really liked drawing Frost's slender figure, and comparing it to Kipper's larger anatomy! Soleil was fun to dress up in that cute little bow tie and Marisol was super fun to paint! And Deidre, I think I love her expression/body language the most. I think she has an air of authority over her.

St. Mortiel App - Ebony by dizzyrin
St. Mortiel App - Ebony
 :iconstmortiel:

Tadaaah! Ebony's all finished, shined and polished to the best of my ability. She even had a makeover while in my hiatus, so she's a lot more fun to draw now!
So, introducing Ebony again!

Name: Ebony Quatraine

Age/Birthday:
15 Years old. Born February 17th

Gender:
Female

Pokémon (#---)
: Litwick (#607)

Ability:
Flame Body: The opponent is burnt upon contact

Nature/Summary Characteristic:
Lonely/Alert to sounds

Height:
2’ 7” or 79 cm

Weight:
15lbs or 7kg

Type 1:
Ghost

Type 2:
Fire

Hometown:
Hearthome City, Sinnoh

Personality: (
Aloof, blunt and to the point, insensate, helpful, polite, honest)
Ebony has a thirst for knowledge. So much so, that in her quest for discovering the unknown she pushes out people for her own free time projects! When you sit her down and talk to her though, she can be very helpful and incredibly polite. She isn’t the most patient of pokemon, craving her own gain over that of others. However if you want to know anything? She’s the person to go to! She’ll always be up for a challenge to understand anything, and that includes the puzzle of how other people do not understand certain concepts. Unfortunately, Ebony sees everything in a logical way, so she is blunt and to the point about everything; emotional ties mean next to nothing to her, so she isn’t very empathetic or regarding of others feelings. She sees no reason for deceit in any way, so she may be perhaps the most honest person you’ll get to know. She can understand when emotions determine the actions of others, so she is learning how to decrypt these puzzling features in order to make sense of why people do things. But get her to play games with you? Become friends with you? Love you? All illogical and all pointless, she finds. Ebony finds it hard to form strong emotional attachments to people and objects, so if you ask her if she likes you, she’s probably going to say no. It’s just who she is. She’s not a complete robot though, she does show a range of emotions herself, most of the time when she doesn’t realise it. Apparently she hasn’t realised that she isn’t so different from everyone else that she lets on…

History:

Ebony is the only daughter of a wealthy businesswoman and her husband, an equally aspiring musician. From an early age, in the time that her parents could afford to spend with her, it became apparent that Ebony displayed an unusual amount of emotional detachment, even for a ghost type. Her parents weren’t too concerned at this point, and enrolled her into a well-off public school close to Hearthome, eager to watch her grow and develop with the guidance of teachers and new friends. All was going well, nothing unusual happened, and they continued to go on with their lives. However, at school, Ebony’s teachers happened to notice that she was exceptionally bright, and not just in the physical sense.

Ebony understood concepts and different points of view remarkably quickly for a girl of her age, surprising her teachers with how little she couldn’t comprehend academically, and how broad her mind really was. The only thing that was quite troubling was that although she was incredibly gifted, she couldn’t understand certain things that people did, no matter how much she was exposed to it. She was like a computer, a robot. For example, she came home one day and asked her parents, “Why did Eunice climb a tree today?” They were puzzled at this oddly naive question! They explained that perhaps Eunice simply felt like it. “But it makes no sense,” Ebony replied, “Trees provide oxygen, without which we would surely die. That is their purpose. Eunice has no reason to climb a tree. It makes no sense.” Concerned at Ebony’s increased frustration at their argument that Eunice didn’t need to climb a tree and that she just did, they provided satisfaction to her by providing the excuse that Eunice was using the tree to observe and find a point of reference. Ebony walked away satisfied and didn’t bring up the topic again.

It became apparent that although Ebony was exceptionally gifted, she saw things through logical lenses, so to speak. For some reason, if she could not find logic in a situation, she would become frustrated, especially when it came to her classmates and having fun. She understood emotions fine, but almost couldn’t quite grasp doing anything ‘for fun’. Everything had to have a purpose, a function for living! How is anything enjoyable? This didn’t happen all of the time though. Occasionally she would be able to join in on group activities and it would be enjoyable, but she would spend more time doing things by herself. She was used to that by now.

Ebony’s parents though that perhaps Ebony was growing up too quickly. She didn’t spend much time socializing except with her parents, even then on occasion only, in favour of more academic pastimes. They came up with the solution of changing schools. Not just any school though, one that would recognise her talents as well as coerce her to socialize. The only solution seemed to be a boarding school, promoting independence and hopefully helping the Litwick in the long run.

Frustrated with the qualms of daily life, the small Litwick strived to understand everything that the world could offer, and this meant starting with the hardest concept of all; emotions, and what they did to people. Ebony was all for going to a new school if it meant she could study all of these new and diverse people to know how they worked, and what made them tick. She had to understand what she hardly possessed herself. The perfect school seemed to be the prestigious academy in their very own Hearthome City... This opportunity, she felt, was too good to pass up.

Extras/Fun Facts:

Ebony, as expressed with her quite large glasses, has Myopia, or short sightedness. There’s some upside to being that short though, she can easily find her glasses if she drops them. Granted they would take a lot to lose because they are melted into her waxy hair.

Her flame, although being part fire type, is not hot like a normal fire. It feels warm to the touch, and gives off a tickling sensation! However that might be part of the fact that Ebony is kinda sucking out your soul if you do that. Minor side effect.

Though her eyes are a strange and abnormal colour, this has nothing to do with her sight deficiency. She is a ghost, after all. Strange eyes seem to run in the family. It makes her look a little intimidating at night, admittedly.

She sees the arts as useless. Abstraction makes her angry, because although she can see the purpose of such a form, she doesn’t agree with it. Regardless, she would love to study it. The premise being, she would love to study the concept.

Hellooo~!
I am Rin. Or Dizzy. Whichever you prefer. I have over... 20 nicknames? New ones are added frequently, so feel free to contribute to the ever growing list!
I'm 18, I live in Australia and I like creating art, obviously. I love traditional and digital art, and experiment with both!

At the moment, school is taking up my life so uploads here will be few and far between, though I've been known to go through little bursts of art. Last year of school though, wish me luck! I'm going all art-serious next year!

I am an avid gamer girl, and as such are a fan of most games I play. Though a lack of consoles and games means that I just watch LP's and become fans of games I see there. That counts, right? I love vintage things, ferris wheels, carousels, tea and learning about other cultures.

Hope you enjoy looking at my art experimentations!

*soBS* WHAT DO I DO EVERYONE IS BRINGING THEIR PKMC CHARACTERS ONTO SCHOOL GROUPS
I am bothering you about this dilemma because I miss drawing Jo and all, but I could never see her in a school and tbh I only think I'll do that if you plan to bring Arizona back in a school setting. And even then Armonia now has a college so Ari might be dumped there... Aughhj decisions I wouldn't be seriously thinking about it if there weren't SO MANY PEOPLE DOING THIS BLUGHHDHFH *falls over and cries*

Tag, quality  deviant, you’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
