No Room for Negativity on DeviantArt

Greetings, friends, fans, and viewers, Antoni here. I know I cannot get over the fact that I have just had my one-year anniversary in this place called DeviantArt, which I can easily consider it to be my Mecca for posting fanart and memes from my favorite fandoms. However, throughout this year, I have also been doing a bit of introspection because I would never want to have any drama on this site that I have visited ever since I was only fourteen and then decided to join a week before I turned 26 years old. Now that I will turn 27 in five days time, I want to take the time attempt to make this reflection in prose form in the best way I can. How blessed I am To be surrounded by brilliant, young, creative minds To know that we have things in common To know that, in spite of our differences, we can be great friends To gain inspiration, experience, and knowledge. And it is all thanks to you, My fellow artists who have inspired me through your works My watchers who have supported me and put up with me My good artist friends who I consider to be family, For you have given me every valid reason To wake up every morning with positivity To feel driven to draw something out of the depths of my mind To draw the shippings I support the most To acknowledge how much effort you all put in your works And to feel just as driven, determined, and passionate to emulate the quality you put in. For that, I am eternally grateful. In spite of my overall euphoria and bliss, I know that there are some things that I have done wrong For that, I have to swallow my pride and acknowledge them. I am sorry for all the times I acted annoying. I am sorry for all the times I shove both of my negative and positive opinions on others’ throats. I am sorry for all the delays I could have and could not have controlled. I am sorry if I showed intolerance to others’ ships, fandoms, and the like. I am sorry if I pissed any of you off for something or everything I did wrong. I am sorry for all of the misunderstandings that have occurred. I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me So that we can all start anew Put the past behind us all And, most importantly, live and let live. I am not doing this for acclaim. I am not doing this in the hopes that everyone here on DA will like me. I know that there are those who probably cannot stand me. I am aware that there are those who find me irritating. And, don’t worry, I acknowledge it. I may not be here to please everybody But I am here to be one of the very people who can make DA better. It is true that there are a lot of times that DeviantArt can be full of unnecessary drama. All for what? Not taking criticism well and in a more professional manner? Ripping off from other people’s works? Fueling the flames to make internet drama just as highly witnessed as a soap opera? At the end of the day, I would never want to be that type of person. I detest being that type of person who is classified as a ripoff. I never want to fuel unnecessary flames for the sake of internet drama. More importantly, I never want to whine about criticism Because I can and have to take the heat. I need to be that type of person who ensures unity on DA. I need to ensure that the positives of being on DA can surely outweigh the negatives. I need to show a lot more tolerance, especially when it comes to shipping. I never want to show toxicity to anyone Because the world has enough crap and needs a lot more healing than it already has. More than anything, I want and need to make sure that the stuff I make, whether fanart, meme or journal entry, Can show what and who I am as a person and not sugarcoat nor upset anyone. Through my fanart, I want to keep showing my appreciation to all of you, wonderful artists. You have kept me alive, well, and entertained even in my down days. I also consider doing fanart, memes, and journal entries on DA very therapeutic, As it can make my mind travel to places unknown, Explore many different tastes And, most of all, enjoy the ride doing so. I wrap this up by having this to say. Regardless of who you are, Fellow artist Fellow writer Fan Friend Greatest sources of inspiration, You are all golden and brilliant in your own ways. Continue to be the best versions of yourselves. I bless you all and take care. Once again, I thank you all, my dear friends, fans, and fellow artists for making my time on DeviantArt great. For those who I have badly hurt, I am sorry and I hope you find it in your hearts to forgive me. Take care, have a good spring, and let’s continue to make DeviantArt a great place to express ourselves.

Happy Easter and Happy One-Year DA Anniversary

Happy Easter and Happy Passover, my dear friends, Antoni here and I cannot believe it has been one year since I have been on DeviantArt, which is why I am so full of blessings, euphoria, and enthusiasm to be here in spite of some rather rocky moments. My time on DeviantArt has been awesome, interesting, and enjoyable, to say the least. All of my positive experiences on here have outweighed the negatives and I do feel like I have been improving as an artist, especially from the feedback I have from fellow Deviants and my loyal followers. I will continue to improve and do everything I can in order to better myself not only as an artist but also as a person. There are so many people I would love to thank for sticking by me and I would love to start with all of my 123 watchers, especially Tigerlover1993, AuronTsubaki1985, bubblyshipper, fashionbella, BeeWinter, Blossom200, Whyboy, PowerpuffObsessed, AwkwardOddOne, JekyllAndHydeChannel, xmysticaldreamsx, and KittyGemAmazon23, Misse-the-cat, SpringMonnie, and ilovetoeatfood4444 for sticking by me since day one onwards, for their great moral support, and their positive vibes. You are all the reasons why I continue to make fanart of the shows I not only like but also the pairings that fascinate me the most. In terms of the artists who have inspired the most, I would love to thank Soraya7, MMHinman, betaruga, Teracles, Juacamo, zephleit, Suyohara, Geioji, AsmodisArt, lilithkiss00, and many other artists for inspiring me to improve my skills as an artist, especially where the male anatomy is concerned. Through your works, I have gained a lot of inspiration, passion, and interest in terms of bettering my drawing skills of not only the male anatomy but also the female anatomy. I also have to thank the-pongpang-art for her gorgeous character and background designs, as these very facets of her work were and will always be reasons for me to gain inspiration and keep improving as an artist. I would then love to thank my color-clash RuffPuff shipper sisters from another mother BrickercupMasterX3, KatyGorl, resotii, Citsitra-blue, GoldRoseAngel, xahCHUx, PurfectPrincessGirl, ColorfulWonders, and PrincessCallyie for making me fully invested in the color-clash RuffPuff couples, especially Brickercup and Blossoomer, as these two are the couples I have found myself shipping the most and loving and drawing the absolute heck out of them. I would also love to thank StretchNSnort for also getting me fully invested in Blossoomer among many other pairings and, once again, BrickercupMasterX3 for getting me fully invested in the flexible pairing known as Mitch x Bunny or Bunnitch and PrincessCallyie for getting me completely fascinated with Jack Spicer x Princess Morbucks or Prinack as well as further exploring my love for crossover pairings. Additionally, I would love to thank yosuehere, Redku, JenniferPowerpuff, MissEmmyJay, and Smol-Marshmallow for increasing my eternal love and fascination for Butch x Blossom or Blossutch, which I deem as the best color-crack RuffPuff couple, in my opinion, Sweatshirtmaster, tearmint, cinyanmon, NanakoBlaze, Team-Boomer3, PhantomLatte, Goody-II-Shoes and viannilla among many others for their works that have really inspired me to maintain Boomubbles as my most favorite RuffPuff color-coded pairing that I have been shipping ever since I was a tween or teen, and HMontes and MarcosBnPinto for further solidifying my love for Mike x Robin or Robike as an awesome couple. It is thanks to all of you guys that I continue to explore my respective passion for Blossutch, Boomubbles, and Robike every waking morning and give me sufficient reasons to draw these couples more often. I want to also thank Misse-the-cat for being especially enthusiastic and supportive when it comes to my next-gen Brickercup, Blossutch, and Boomubbles characters, especially the two new Butchubbles and Blossoomer next-gen characters I thought up, plus Katy-Gorl for inspiring me to bring her Butchubbles and Blossoomer kids to my Team Xtreme universe, and even CottonCandyGrl1969 for inspiring me to bring her Blossutch daughters to my Team Xtreme universe. You have managed to make me excited to draw the next-gen Brickercup, Blossoomer, Butchubbles, Blossutch, and Butchubbles characters more often. I also cannot begin to thank the likes of YANN-X and 04jh1911 for making me completely invested in Disney Slash Couples, especially my most favorite one being Kocoum x Tarzan. You guys are the very reasons why I continue to be fascinated with couples like these. Speaking of which, I am also very thankful for Khialat and TXToonGuy1037 for inspiring me to continue rooting for Arnold x Phoebe as a couple and I hope to continue drawing more Arnold x Phoebe fanart more often. Coming from someone who has a love-hate relationship with Inuyasha, Bleach, and Naruto, I would love to thank RivaAnime for her awesome motivational posters, as I can totally agree with her statements and give me many reasons why I love Inuyasha x Ayame more than Inuyasha x Kagome and maybe Inuyasha x Kikyou. I also have to thank teacupballerina for her awesome pieces of AkuBloss work and for eventually getting me fascinated with this weird yet wonderful pairing. So, Teacup, I wish you a lot more awesome moments as an artist and more wonderful pieces of work coming from you. And as for the many other artists, I forgot to mention on here, I just want to say thank you all for a year of inspiration, enlightenment, passion, and fun on DeviantArt. I also love to thank the many people who have left constructive criticism on my work, as I need them more than anything to keep growing. You all deserve a lot of love, joy, excellence, and brilliance in everything you do. Happy Easter, Happy Passover, and thanks for taking the time to view this written entry. Don’t forget, if you enjoy the fanart and the written entries I have to offer, please don’t forget to follow me and I will see you all in the flipside. Take care and have a great spring.

Hey, everybody! Antoni, here, and guess what. I’m on DeviantArt.   For the longest time, I have mainly visited this site when I was a lad of fourteen and I have been getting a lot of creative inspiration from a lot of the fanart I saw. Even more so, I was initially hesitant to join DeviantArt because of certain dumb insecurities I had as an artist, in spite of the fact that I love to draw, especially fanart of my most favorite animated characters. Plus, I was still rather young, as taking criticism well was still in the development department, I only saw making visual art in terms of drawing as a hobby, and I thought that my drawing skills were very much not on par with those people who draw fanart on such a good to an exceptional level.   However, as time went on, I kind of toyed with the idea of being on here because I have some really good reviewer and artist friends and some relatives who have an account on DeviantArt and are very passionate about what they do and what they love. For that, I say more power to them and everything they do.   Yes, there is also some fetish art that I found usually involving characters getting abnormally fat or generally growing in size. Those are the art types I try to avoid, as they seem to promise empty creativity. I always strive to be inspired by fanart or original work which is not only creatively appealing but also enhancing and can cater to my love of animation. Thus, I finally made the decision to become a DeviantArtist not only to support the artists who have inspired me but to also bring my art pieces and passion to the table.   Would I want to make my drawing of fanart a regular thing aside from the YouTube reviews and blog posts I write on Manic Expression, TeamNightSaturn, and Steemit? Probably, because on the one hand, I have a lot of ideas going on in my crazy yet creative mind that I see why not. I have always had an innate desire to draw my favorite character pairings or OTPs, BroTPs and the like from my favorite cartoons, anime, and video games because I have always seen the plausibility in terms of the character chemistry in these pieces of media. On the other hand, it might not be done so regularly because of the time I have to commit to making my fanart come to fruition in terms of not making my illustrations sloppy nor unfinished but polished and well-detailed. Even more so, I have other priorities to accomplish not only as a reviewer, artist, and performer but also as a student. In other words, it might as well be done in my free time, if ever I feel like it or if ever I feel inspired to just do something.   With the fanart that I have so far as well as other ideas swimming on in my brain just wanting to be released, I thought it would be a great idea to be on DeviantArt to not only show my work as an artist who does drawing fanart as a hobby but to also make something of good quality. Moreover, I think it is actually therapeutic to be on here, as I do feel a sense of joy, relief, and gratitude whenever I draw something that I really love and I don’t have to bottle it up.   So, I hope you can follow me on DeviantArt, as I do have some interesting things to present. So far, I am really enjoying my time here, as I am really happy getting to know other artists and the work they have done as of late. As for new drawing-related projects, I intend to do something yet again with my four favorite bruisers in all of animated series history, Brick, Butch, Blossom, and Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls. Can you tell why I really like these four? Seriously, I am itching to draw more fanart with them as the main subject. Oh and don’t worry, I will definitely put in my Number 1 RRBxPPG OTP, Boomer/Bubbles or Boomubbles, in the works as well, as I have something really interesting for these two.   Until then, this is Antoni wishing you a lovely and warm spring.
