Hello everyone! How are you doing? I've been so slow to reply here on DA, I apologize for that. First semester of senior year of college has been crazy in more ways than one. It's been a while since I drew anything other than assignments. I should be doing a lot of art during the summer though to prepare for my first time selling at an artists alley. Still deciding the fandoms to do printed fanart for.

Currently attending an art school studying illustration. Hoping to specialize in comics and graphic novels. :painter:

"WHERE HAVE YOU DISAPPEARED TO?"
I'm in my final senior semester of college now so a great deal of my time is taken up drawing and painting for assignments and my senior portfolio. What free time I do have is usually spent taking a break from just drawing and spent writing fanfics or roleplaying instead. Along with all this, I've entered the Hetalia fandom and have been sharing my fanart for that on tumblr instead of deviantart for the most part.

Some of my many fandoms and loves: One Piece, Detective Conan/Magic Kaito, DC Comics (+Young Justice), The Flash, Lord of the Rings (Tolkien in general- especially hobbits), Hetalia, Doctor Who, Merlin, Cardcaptor Sakura, Fushigi Yuugi (SS & GK), Harry Potter, Mulan, Castle, Rurouni Kenshin, Pooh Bear, My Little Pony xD, Homestuck, Shugo Chara, Ace Attorney and more...

Favourite style of art: comics (both western & manga) followed closely by everything else -I also write and I enjoy painting
Favourite cartoon character: Franky
Personal Quote: "Too few fans really try to understand their favorite characters. It's sad. They're missing out."

"YO STRANGER. WILL YOU TALK TO ME?"
Sure! If you open up a good conversation opportunity I'll reply away. I like meeting new people, especially fellow fans.

WHO IS THAT IN YOUR ICON? :D :iconstraw-hat:
Larry Butz from the Ace Attorney games. I'm part of the Ace Attorney Icon Family created by midori-kitty For more information click here: aceattorneyfamily.deviantart.c…

"DO YOU HAVE AN ARTISTIC MISSION OR PHILOSOPHY?" :greetings:
A lot of what you'll find here on my DA account right now was made for fun. There's a lot of fanart. I tend to like to draw things that are cute and/or funny, things that make me- and hopefully my audience smile.
On a less obvious note, there are certain pieces and projects, even including some fanart projects like doujinshi, that I create with a deeper message or intention in mind. I have been writing longer than I have been drawing, so I really enjoy making things with stories to them (thus the love of comics) and I like to try making people think. My Cardcaptor Iceburg doujinshi is an example of a fan project that, by the end of the story, will address some more serious subjects instead of merely standing as a comedy.

"DO YOU TAKE ART REQUESTS OR ART TRADES?"
I only offer them occasionally. I prefer to do these with friends.

Dude, seriously, this is getting annoying. You haven't accepted my fics into your Robin group. Why?

Thanks for your patience.

First, I've been very busy. I barely have time to visit DA any more. I am considering asking a friend to co-manage the Robin fangroup.

Second, I had to skim over the fics. If you look at our group rules, smut is not allowed. (Yes that includes particularly suggestive content. At least a couple submissions had content of that nature. If it has a sexual scene, it won't be accepted.) A couple others I'm still debating over whether to accept or not. Since this is a Robin fangroup I try to keep the gallery content focused on her as much as I can. In the case of fics, when Robin plays a very small part in a story I hesitate to add it to the group gallery.

Oh and don't forget to hit the "Save Now" button on the lower left corner after you've changed the gallery submission settings!

Feel free to ask more questions if you get stumped.

You mean making it so they can submit to the group gallery?

You can turn on the option for them to do that by going to the Admin Area.

Click on the Manage Members button in the upper left area

It will bring up a chart where you can flip through the different types of members and give permissions. In the left most column click on Members.

In the right-most column look for "On Gallery, Members"

It will say Submissions to "Featured": and there's a drop down option below it. Change it either to being "Automatically Approved" or "Are Subject To Vote" depending on if you want to check each deviation submitted before it goes into the gallery. If you want to check, pick the vote option. If you don't, pick the automatically approved one.

Global Submissions Limit refers to how many deviations each member is allowed to submit in a given time.

If you  have other folders in your group gallery besides the Featured Folder, click on the Show All Folders link. From there you can change the submission options on all the other folders.

I hope this helps! :)
