Well, this is obviously what I draw. Oh yeah, and I love cartoons.

Rooftop Solo by NiftyNautilus
Rooftop Solo
I drew a picture of my OC, Virgil, playing his guitar while sitting on the roof at night. For some reason, I imagine that he's playing the Elvis Presley song, "Love Me Tender" or "The Long and Winding Road" by The Beatles-heck, any '60's song that sounds good on acoustic guitar, really.
Drawn on GIMP.
Gioacchino v. 2.0 by NiftyNautilus
Gioacchino v. 2.0
I wasn't sure that my original drawing of Gioacchino Grossman (Gioachino if you prefer that spelling) was all that great given that he's a hard character to draw, but I wanted to try again with a new picture of him.
I'm still trying to get the hang of digital art here, so I wouldn't mind suggestions. :D
Old picture:

Umbrella Thorndike by NiftyNautilus
Umbrella Thorndike
Here's a picture I drew of my OC, Zipporah "Umbrella"  Wallis Thorndike*. She is an 8-year-old hobbyist inventor and freelance writer with a passion for science and engineering. Her nickname obviously derives from her umbrella hat,…, which she has had since she was five. (It's not like they called her "Zipporah" when she was four-they called her "Zipper", which she HATED, but after she was given her hat as a gift for her 5th birthday (technically 1.5th birthday, as she's a leap year baby), it became a line-of-sight nickname thanks to Yucky and, well, it stuck.
Umbrella is extremely smart, especially when it comes to science (she took an 8th-grade physics course on line once) and wants to be a scientist or engineer when she grows up. Science has always been a part of her life since her mom is an astrophysicist and her dad is a robotics engineer, both of whom work for NASA. So far, some of Umbrella's inventions include a solar-powered jetpack, a telepathy-operated screwdriver, and a handheld ice pistol, among other things.
Personality-wise, she is kind, but very stoic and a total perfectionist who has a method to everything. Umbrella usually has her best manners on in front of parents, teachers, and other authority figures, and, y'know, is one of those straight-A students, as she is terrified of making mistakes because she is so obsessed with being methodical. As such, she hates immaturity, stupid things/people, and messing up, so she and Yucky do NOT always get along. Umbrella actually wants to help Yucky overcome his laziness/goofiness, but he is stubborn and likes getting a rise out of her, so he pesters her even more. While seen as a nerd and maybe even a bit crazy for being an overachiever, Umbrella is at heart someone who wants to change the world and use her intelligence for good. She sometimes has struggles with communicating with people, as she doesn't always have the best social skills, but she is trying to figure it out (she's a savant; extraordinary inventing ability despite not being too good with people). Still Umbrella is trying to work on getting along with others, although it can be tough for her.
*(I changed her first name because I thought that it suited her more than "Martina", and I don't know why I gave her the name "Martina" in the first place).
The Twins by NiftyNautilus
The Twins
Here's a good image of the twins, Mina and Nina Paredes, from my stories.
Mina A. Paredes and Nina P. Paredes are identical twins, but they are not considered to share the same birthday as Mina was born at 11:35 PM on Mar. 10, 20XX, but Nina was born 25 minutes later at midnight. They are both 8 years old, however.
Mina is intelligent and a logical thinker. She is interested in the future and especially in science. Although she is kind and will help her younger sister, she is a little arrogant at times and sometimes comes across as a bit sarcastic.
Nina is also smart, but she is more interested in the past and in emotional things such as poetry. She is sometimes too trusting, but otherwise is faithful and can be honest with people.
The girls were born in the United States, but their parents are from Barbados, and thus can speak some Spanish. However, as they have English as a primary language, they only speak Spanish at home or with other people who can communicate in Spanish.
Tatl by NiftyNautilus
Here's a drawing I did of Tatl from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. I love the game and its zany characters, and she's among my favorites. Since she's depicted as a glowy yellow ball, I wanted to anthropomorphize her a bit more, perhaps at the age of 11-12 like Link himself. And knowing me and my retro obsession, I had to give her a vague 1970s vibe.
Oh my gosh...just realized I made her look a bit too much like Angelica Pickles...;P
Well, school is a lot harder this year, so I had very little time for art and DA. But don't worry-starting Friday, I will be back for a while.
It's not like I'm going to deactivate or switch accounts-I'm here to stay!-but please keep in mind that I may not always have time for DA, so I apologize for late replies and lack of online activity.
I missed you,
-Nifty :heart:

*puts on phony Plugsy voice* How do youse do? :)
So, I guess my gallery is kind of like the place you go when you're tired of the absurdly impressive anime/dragon/MLP/other paintings that hog the front page. You can take a look around here; I warn you, I don't really draw anything impressive or popular, but I promise you that you'll find something you like in my gallery.

Nifty's FAQ

Q: Are you a mean person?
A: No. I'm usually kind, I try not to be rude, and I'm very sensitive, but get me mad, and I will erupt like Kilauea.

Q: What are some of your pet peeves?
A: Getting flamed, overly romantic drooling fangirls that slash every single character, and getting a bunch of deviations in my mailbox when I just commented on a lot of people's artwork.

Q: Do you support any fandom couples?
A: Nope. Well, if they're already dating/married in the canon, yes. Fanmade? No.

Q: What's your favorite Pokemon?
A: Chandelure.

Q: Fine then, least?
A: Eevee.

Q: Are you normal?
A: Normal is just a setting on the dryer.

Q: Innie or outie?
A: Bro, I'm always IN.

Q. Orientation?
A: Straight, although I tend to fall for boys I barely know.

Q: Do you take requests?
A: It depends on the request. If it's something that relates to a fetish, then I probably won't. If not, I'll have it done in maximum two weeks.

Q: What's your favorite TV show?
A: Invader Zim. ALL HAIL ZIM!

Yes, I am a fan of The Brave Little Toaster. Yes, I make plushies of minor TBLT characters. Believe it or not, I actually hate most modern cartoons, except for Zim, old Phineas and Ferb, and old Spongebob, but I do like many cartoons such as The Powerpuff Girls, Tiny Toon Adventures, The Jetsons, Disney movies, and My Little Pony (Friendship is Magic).
I am a 'toon addict, as you can see, but I mostly like the older cartoons that you can only watch on Boomerang or YouTube because they're generally cooler and funnier. Today's "LOL pie" jokes and toilet humor kind of repel me.
I spend a lot of time drawing cartoons of my own, as you can see, and my style is basically realistic panatomy, but the character has a more cartoonish face and hands as well as a slightly enlarged head (by this I mean about as wide as the torso, usually) and I often give my characters pencil necks. I don't really like the geometric style found in so many modern cartoons, and prefer to let the art "breathe" a little.
Many of my OCs have hair or skin colors that are not found in nature. Ever. This is because I think that the characters look cool that way. Drawing awesome technicolor people is the way I roll.
I'm generally kind of silly sometimes, but offline I'm kind of shy. It's not really easy for me to have conversations face-to-face.
I used to be really into anime, but I'm not into it as much as I used to be because of all the yaoi fangirls slashing everybody and screaming "KAWAII!" all the time. That, and live-action shows are hard for me to pay attention to, so cartoons are more of my kind of thing.
And just so you know-I hate, hate, HATE Happy Tree Friends. It is vile and a disgrace to cartoons, not to mention that I've had people FORCE ME TO LIKE IT!
BAN HTF! *shakes fist*
Please don't beg me to support your shippings. I hate those things, as you guys know. I also don't like "First Comment!" posts or chain mails. so please keep them away from me.
I also find it rude when you send me your artwork through notes if I already watch you. I'm going to notice it, obviously, so I'd prefer you not do that.
However, feel free to ask me questions. I ain't going to cuss you out or troll you or anything like that. :) I may be a little bonkers, but I don't bite.
By the way, I also have a penchant for pink tricycles. And socks with Pikachu on them. And tribal masks. And big hairstyles. And old music. And reptiles. And scented hand sanitizer. And animated movies that nobody watches anymore that are always direct-to-video. And weird trivia that you find in Time magazines. :D
Quotes of Mine:
"Remember kids, if you want to stay healthy, eat plenty of fruits and veggies, drink plenty of water, and don't listen to Miley Cyrus."
"The universe is constantly expanding. However, my trust of it is going the other way."
"I don't have OCD. I just need everything to be perfect, that's all."
"When I asked for baloney, I didn't mean yaoi!"
"A 'u mad bro?' a day keeps everyone away."
"Don't do drugs. Watch old cartoons instead." (They're addicting.)
Favorite color: PURPLE!!!
Favorite Food: Pizza
Fears: High speeds (why I never go on roller coasters w/ drops), losing my loved ones, super-duper-X rated intense blood, failure, teenage boys (well, most of 'em), getting lost
Things I can't do at all: sing, juggle, algebra, watch Nick Jr., make my hair stay in place whenever I try to make it look at least decent, listen to rap, dance, get excited about celebrity news, go a day without talking about cartoons or animals, listen to dubstep music, and understand "shipping".
My Likes: Cartoons (mostly older ones), weird trivia, some Internet memes, creepy-crawlies, Pokemon, old commercials, getting comments on my artwork, dinosaurs, non-princess/CGI Disney movies, Celtic music, purple eyeshadow, disco music, stamps, musical soundtracks, obscure old books, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, bubblegum-flavored toothpaste, birds, sea creatures, dancing around in my room, purple, animated Tim Burton movies (like the Nightmare Before Christmas and Frankenweenie), yogurt, humorous artwork (as long as it's not sexual or racially insensitive), wind-up phonographs, and drawing. Oh yeah, and cool creepy stuff.
My Dislikes: Internet trolls/other mean people, swearing, violence IRL, Twilight, Justin Bieber, Happy Tree Friends, grody public restrooms, macaroni and cheese, rule 34, sleeping, crowds, algebra homework, getting more faves than comments, and Happy Tree Friends.
