Just the newest stuff! :D Take a look around at the other folders in my gallery, of course. Not all of my different types of work appear here. :P


These are the favourites. :P If you look inside, you'll find all references as well.

What I use: Artweaver and GIMP for my digital work. For my traditional work, I use just a regular pencil and paper. On the fractals, I use a program called Apophysis. For my PDF and other "text document" files, I use OpenOffice (Updated to LibreOffice).

I proceed to learn more and more about science, mathematics, literature, and, of course, art. I don't use any books to help me draw, but occasionally I'll take reference to pictures I find randomly on the internet. (I do my best to find the origins.)
I love to play video games and spend a lot of time on the computer. I tend to be rather antisocial, as well as socially awkward. I'm hoping I can improve on my skills around people, as well as my self.

Current Residence: Not in Kansas. Oh god no.
Print preference: Old English
Favourite genre of music: Pretty much anything.
Favourite style of art: Pretty Much Any
Operating System: Windows 7 & 8
MP3 player of choice: iPhone
Favourite cartoon character: I have no clue...

I'm probably never going to post on here ever again, but I promise to post an update of a new website of my own if I ever create one. It was fun and all. Although I never got much fame, comments, or really anything on my work, I also didn't really expect it. My work is still very new and I never joined any fandoms. Because of those reasons, I never and probably won't ever get big unless I have other people put my work out there. I've considered cleaning out all of my older work because I feel ashamed of the terrible quality and mistakes I've made. People have insulted me for doing things wrong, so I tend to post content less. I start to become more secluded and sociably I fade off, unlike my skill. While I have indeed created newer work, I didn't think for the past months that it mattered. I simply thought that I'd be associated with the horrible work of my past. Although the fact is that I'm selfish for not showing anybody else my current work (even my friends), the truth was that I just felt too sad and alone. Most of my friends have abandoned me, and I've been having family troubles since. School has already started for me again, and I have two years left without accounting for college and the little social life I have, meaning for the rest of the year, my work will be yet again delayed. Despite being asexual as well, I've felt completely alone. Since my last girlfriend broke up with me, I've felt saddened as I have nobody to share my feelings with. While I talk for hours with my closest friend every day, he's not the type to share feelings with. One greater problem is that I've actually had relationships fall apart because my partner wanted sex, yet I wasn't interested. I like to hold hands, hug, and perhaps kiss, but the thought of sex is distasteful. Because of that, 99% of the population is automatically cancelled out for me. It isn't me being picky but instead me wanting the best for other people.
Anyway, enough of that. 
Cheers and farewell, DeviantArt subscribers and members. :)

Just thought I should say, I freaking love your fractal art so much. It's all...
Beautiful, and shit. Yeah. :iconishipthemsohardplz:
RiuKotsusei Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
:P Thank you.

When I think about it, though, it's more so the computer that does the beautiful work. I could never do this with my own bare hands unless I had much more time. :I

I'M SORRY. :iconamericawhyplz:

Even so, I really love it. I love all your work so much, but I felt like I should put in a good word for the fractals, because they really catch my eye now and then. I don't know. Every time I look at one I end up staring at for five minutes. I find them really captivating.
And. Yeah. >.>

:P They literally go on and on forever if you have the right tools to view the files. PNG and JPG's just have physical limits due to pixels, but something like vector-type would definitely last for awhile.
