G. A.
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
New Zealand
I'm a home-schooled New Zealander. While I think of myself as a writer first and foremost, I'm also a prolific artist; I do both traditional drawings and digital paintings (often a combination of both), as well as sculpting and painting miniatures. I love fantasy, dwarves, wargaming, miniatures, and the beauty of nature.

I am also interested in politics; I call myself a Capitalist-libertarian. I am passionately in favour of limited government, economic freedom, personal liberties and property rights. Also for the legalization of drugs, gay marriage, incest, and having more than one spouse. Give me Liberty!







Interests

As of today I have now been on Deviantart for a whole year: and what a year it has been! I really do love this site: I can post my own art for people to see, browse a nearly infinite gallery of other artists' works, meet new people, and discover new things (among them: genderbends, Elsanna, femboys). I'd like to give a special Thank You to my 8 awesome watchers: thanks so much guys!

Speaking of you guys, I've been thinking that it would be cool to get more input from you and involve you more in my work. To start with, I would love to know:

* What's your favourite artwork in my gallery?

* What would you like to see more of? Do you want more fanart, or would you like to see more of my original concepts and ideas? Do you want to see more miniatures? Do you want more genderbends? Do you want more League of Legends stuff, or more Disney art (or crossovers of both)? Would you be interested in more femboy art? Would you like to see more stories and literature? Are you interested in more essays? Or do you want more Emoticons?

* Is there any other stuff you'd like me to draw? My Little Pony? Elsanna? Legend of Korra? Skyrim?

* Is there anything in particular you'd really like me to draw? I'm not always open to requests, but I'd be happy to draw something for you if I have the time and I like the idea.

* Just out of curiosity, is there anything in my gallery that you really hate?

So here's to an awesome year gone by, and to an even awesomer year ahead. I hope to create more great art, discover more great art, meet more people and interact more with the people I've already met.

I am also hoping to finally start my very own blog (sooner or later, depending on how motivated I feel and how much time I have), so stay tuned for that. It'll mostly feature articles on political and social issues from my own Capitalist-libertarian viewpoint, but I'm also hoping to write articles and reviews about games, movies, and other media. Another idea I have is to feature things: Kickstarter projects, artists, Youtube Channels, etc. Call that shameless advertising if you will. If you have any ideas, feel free to offer suggestions.

Please ask any questions you want to, whether it be about my blog or my Deviantart.

Also thought, do you know Ross Tran? I can't stand his "comedy," but his art is getting better, and although a lot of what he does is "cheating," if I could learn to do that, I'd make some amazing comic panels! Cus I don't have a tablet or anything, but if you check him out, learn from him! His art is pretty!

No, I've never heard of him before you mentioned him. Definitely got some quite fine art, though; thanks for sharing. :) What do you mean he's 'cheating'?

"Cheating" as in he does those swipe things to all of a sudden make a glow turn up. It's an effect that's basically done for you, all you have to do is "wave the magic wand," and it literally is like that. I think actually before he called it "cheating" too, cus you're not really doing anything, the effect is doing it for you, to highlight and make glow etc, so you can't do that in "real life" on a canvas, only on a computer. There's no way to do that other than by painstaking work, or by "cheating."

I prefer the painstaking work. That's why I don't like digital art when they do it like that. It takes more skill to do it by hand, like that guy um... what's his name...

Ruben!  Ruben something... Ramos!

There! THAT'S what I'm talkin' about! No magic wand there!

So I respect someone more if they do it the proper way instead of using a "magic wand" for all their problems. ;p

Ah, I see. Yeah, you gotta respect the guys who do it the hard way; though you can't really blame digital artists for taking advantage of the medium, but I get what you mean.

You don't have a cellphone or anyone to text? I am impressed. It makes my head hurt with joy!

I didn't know you were homeschooled. Me too! (That's how I got to skip most of school and end up at the end of my rope. Good story! =P)

Yup, I've never had a cellphone in my life. The reason I don't have anyone to text is that I am a stay-at-home isolationist; I spend lots of time with my siblings and parents, but hardly even see 'outsiders'. My family isn't a very social one. =P (Razz)

Yes, I've been homeschooled all my life. :D (Big Grin) That's cool to hear you're one too!

By the way, I've finished working on the Illidan VS Malthael picture; do you want me to upload it on my profile or send it to you another way? I'm happy with whatever you want. :)

I didn't even notice I didn't reply to this. Ok! To reply!

Never had a cellphone in your life? I wish everyone could have the pleasure of saying that. The absolute pleasure, mind you. 

"The reason I don't have anyone to text is that I am a stay-at-home isolationist." Oh no! Hope you're not too lonely! And hope it gives you time to make up incredible stories! =D

"My family isn't a very social one. =P (Razz) "

How come?

Mine wasn't either. Cus my dad was abusive. :thumbsup: So same here.
(Unless neither of your parents are abusive...)

"Yes, I've been homeschooled all my life. :D (Big Grin) That's cool to hear you're one too!
"

Yeah. I went to China ruined my life and then came back and they put me in school. =P My first year was grade 8, and before that, I only did grade one homeschooling and dabbled in grade 5 shortly before quitting completely until 3 yrs later we came back to Canada. Good story that too!

And then did a bit of homeschooling for grade 9. That's also another good story. XD Cus I supposed to be in school.

Oh wow, I didn't realize this was sent a million years ago, just checked now. Blimey.

I'm working on a batman comic now. Weeeee.
I just wrote one.

But I would like to team up and make more art, yes. =)
