I'm a fantasy, surreal, video game, comic, and abstract artist. I tend to avoid realistic artwork which includes absolute perspective, human/ facial form and proportions, still-life and landscapes. Don't get me wrong they are perfectly genuine art forms; however, in my opinion they lack creative dynamics and flexibility. I particularly enjoy manga, anime, and 1980's and 90's animation/ cartoons.

I mostly submit fan artworks to my gallery. on rare occasions will I have different artworks to submit or I'll be using different mediums other than pencil. I'll try my best to update my gallery more often.

Favourite genre of music: Classical, Orchestral, JPop, Video Game, Electronic/ Techno
Favourite style of art: Sketching, Hand-Drawn (Traditional), Grey Markers
MP3 player of choice: iPod
Favourite cartoon character(s): Mew Duo
Personal Quote: Despair goes to those who accept Truth, Hope goes to those who ignore it.

Journal History



I just heard news of the departure of Club Nintendo. This is certainly an unfortunate coming for the loyalty program which in my opinion was far better than the one that SquareEnix coughed up which very much extracted lots of ideas from it, but failed in my experiences with it. Although the rewards for Platinum Status came under fire, I held up hope that eventually I would see something similar to the Super Mario statuette which is now officially the BEST Platinum Status reward in this programs lifespan. I've maintained a steady stockpile of coins and games to register each year to continue supporting the loyalty program and Nintendo. Certainly it wasn't just the Platinum Rewards seeing decline, but also the regular rewards. I guess I should've gotten an NES REMIX XL T-Shirt before they vanished and a 3DS Game Case.

Some of my fondest memories include said Super Mario statuette, getting Game & Watch Collection 1 and 2 for the DS, getting Super Mario Hanafuda Cards, Doc Louis Punch Out!!, back in the early days of the program I received The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition for the GameCube, but almost didn't because they forgot to send it to me until I reached out to them lol.

All is not lost though because there is a new rewards program in the works and hopefully it'll make vast improvements and retain the same loyal Nintendo fanbase atmosphere that Club Nintendo kept pretty strong in perspective. One thing I would like to see is that this new loyalty program work in a way to allow loyal, dedicated Nintendo fans to get easy access to purchase limited editions of upcoming games which is implied based on the Ambassador "new" 3DS bundles in Europe; speaking of which is Europe Club Nintendo and Japan's Club Nintendo still active? The latter probably due to the consistent fresh and more interesting rewards.
Going back, instances of the horribly planned out Majora's Mask Limited Edition with the Skull Kid (fueled by the low stocked Amiibos) only support scalpers and for this, honest/ loyal gamers get left out or punished to stand idly by while other people who have no sense of shame or love of Nintendo (most likely) profit and make a career out of their retail spoils. It's terrible, and Nintendo SHOULD enact something in this new rewards, loyalty program to combat this. And one last thing I got to mention about Majora's Mask Limited Edition.... only 7 available preorders at the EB Games near my home was BS. Actually, The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition WAS an early instance of allowing dedicated players get a copy (without having to buy potentially, another GameCube) even if it wasn't an actual transaction.

This news comes similar to Nintendo Power, but somehow I felt that Nintendo Power had more poignancy due to the consistent impact and deliverance it gave the gaming and Nintendo readers, but comparably, the end of Club Nintendo is somewhat an epiphany of that Magazine's end.

I feel encouraged to draw a farewell work for Club Nintendo, and I want to try to get more on track for events like this. I missed the Nintendo Power departure, I don't want to miss this or anything else of a milestone in the future. It'll be a while till I can get one up, because I wouldn't want to simply do a quick sketch and slap GOODBYE CLUB NINTENDO or something on it and call it a day... or hour. Among other things, I'm working on an artwork for a friend, possibly something for a contest I saw and feel interested in entering, and one drawing for a much needed expression of one aspect of Smash Bros. 3DS/ Wii U that really sticks to my head each time I play it (and no it doesn't involve waiting for Mewtwo to appear, it's something more frustrating than anything else). All to be done on my WACOM which I'm still practicing on.

Speaking of which if you wish to see my views of Mewtwo's return/ announcement:
MEWTWO STRIKES BACK!!I never would've thought that Mewtwo would potentially return to Smash Bros. I was really disheartened back when Brawl was finalized and Mewtwo was reportedly the last to be cut from the roster (evidenced by the amount of character data he possessed compared to the other removed Melee characters). That's not to say that it may not have been hinted upon among the Smash Community at the days of Melee, due to what I blame solely on the developers of Melee at the time, for severely limiting beyond what this iconic, legendary Pokemon deserves compared to his original game-counterpart; butchering him to the point of becoming no more threatening than a standard Lvl 2 Pokemon you come across on your first journey outside your home town in (insert) region. Mewtwo certainly cannot be the insane superboss Pokemon the handheld titles make him out to be, so scaling him down was the right direction, but the obvious tweaks in Melee went too far and beyond. His weight was extremely light and the fact I Never Stopped Believing in You by DragoonMyuutsu

FYI, I'll be cleaning my Cubicle Drawings a little longer due to these delays and higher priorities... still 15 more to go... and they aren't simple doodles. Also, since I got a new FT job at another office, I've started a new series of Cubicle Drawings where I'm already on my 5th Drawing.
