Journal
Magazine - NEW INFO
The December magazine didn't appear. Why? Because no one submitted articles (except one) nor pictures for it.
Now, I have a proposition to make for you. What if I made a new edition "beginning of the year", so January-February? Here would be the theme : Emotions. Why? Well, how do you fell when the new year is coming? When you are having resolutions? Isn't it a new start? And how do you feel when Valentine's day is coming? When it's time to say to your crush you love them? All that courier, letters, romantic dinners, hugs and kisses, aren't them the effects of love? It's time to open your books and web pages to know more about all that strange emotions that  take possession of us, simple mortals. And why not looking the origins of Valentine's Day, why is there 365 days in a year and maybe doing comics and/or illustrations about it? Isn't it a cool idea? If you are interested, if you haven't read all the rules and info, you can do it here :

Baron Vladimir Harkonnen
I just started reading Dune by Frank Herbert, and I just HAD to draw fan art of the various characters because I find them all so intriguing, multi-sided and well-portrayed. 
This one is the main villain of the series, Baron Vladimir Harkonnen. For those who haven't read the book, this Baron is best described as a scheming, power-hungry, hedonistic sadist who somehow manages to conceal all that debauchery under a smooth facade. Name something utterly vile, and he'd be more than happy to demonstrate. Despite the fact that he's a magnet for moral outrage, he's also quite intriguing and you can't help but want to see more of him for some reason. (In my opinion, this is exactly how to write a villain-make them as depraved as you want, but depict the character in a way that makes depravity seem suave, intriguing, and integral to their nature.) 
This is how I pictured his appearance. I like to think of the Baron as having a domineering, overwhelming, some might even say room-filling presence. His puffy, infantile face contradicts his imposing, massive body. (I tried to give him rounded, soft features to show that, despite being a tyrannical baron who rules Giedi Prime with an iron fist, he's basically like a little kid in that he sees every planet he receives as a toy to be played around with, broken, and tossed aside to immediately get a new one) I also interpret him to wear an ornate outfit because he strikes me as the type of character who demands to be seen by all. The outfit I designed was very "frou-frou" and stuffy-looking, as I think that the Harkonnens strike me as the type to attempt concealing their heinous behavior behind a sophisticated, erudite facade. (Honestly, I never really liked the depiction of the Baron and his family clad in the stereotypical "tin-can" industrial costumes people love to put sci-fi characters in...isn't that what the working-class inhabitants of Giedi Prime might be wearing instead? :))
I honestly had a bit of trouble taking in the David Lynch depiction, as something about that version was a bit...too much. While I agree, the Baron is meant to be a repulsive, disgusting man, it was emphasized more by the way he treated others and the things he did for fun, and not so much by his facial features. What makes his obesity so despicable is definitely aesthetic (admit it, he looked nasty!), but it's also disturbing because it emphasizes his excess while the Giedi Primers starve-and that he's an "all-take-and-no-give" kind of guy. Trust me, the blobby body and the swollen lips are gross enough, so were the acne and bodily fluids really necessary? :/
Also, I decided to do something a little different with the "suspensors". I don't think that the Baron is actually flying with these per se, as the suspensors supposedly lift some of his fat out of the way so he can walk normally. I do like the idea of them being a controllable belt, but I decided to have the suspensors float instead of the Baron himself in my depiction.
Anyway, enjoy! :D

Sidwell Revisited
I decided to do an updated drawing of my OC, Sidwell Pomerance, because I can't recall the last time I drew her. 
I'm still practicing using GIMP and I feel like I am improving, but I still feel like I have a long way to go before my GIMP drawings actually start looking more professional. :D

Debbie the Diamond
When going through one of my old scrapbooks from when I was a kid, I found the first drawing I ever made-a green, diamond-shaped being known only as "Debbie the Diamond". 
Here she is several years later-updated to go with my current art style. :D

I apologize for not talking to you, for not being active on DA, and for ignoring some of you. It's not that I was done with being on DA-I had a really busy past few months and wasn't really able to create much new art or talk to anyone. I miss you all, and I will try to make time for DA in the future, even though I might not have as much time as in the past.

*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.
