Oh well, it's been ages since I even did something here. Far too busy. So now's a good time to remind my watchers I still exist.

10 facts about me (Can't promise any will be revolutionary)
Despite being 24 years old, I've only really been drawing as a hobby for just over 4 years. And my word, I was awful at first. Truly cringe worthy stuff.2.
I have no plans on ever drawing for any kind of profit/living. Mainly because I can't work to deadlines, which explains why it's a miracle if I ever finish, say, a birthday gift in time.
You could give me a month's notice and it wouldn't guarantee anything. You can't force inspiration, as much as I have tried.3.
I'm the only European Flipnoter to win both of the Nintendo Flipnote competitions. Don't believe me? See for yourself.www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiJkF_…www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQQB9f…
It's quite possible I'm the only person in the world to do that. But I can't be bothered to check if the Japanese and Americans have a similar winner.4.
Almost all my work is done on some kind of DS. Be it DSi XL with Flipnote and Art Academy or 3DS XL with Colours 3D and Pokémon Art Academy. I have to work on a pretty small screen. Which explains why most of my pictures tend to have similar orientations.5.
I'm British, you know? So naturally, I spell Colour correctly. "Color" is only 4 letters away from "Colon" and that's worrying.
I don't mind the American way of spelling things, but when British people start spelling it wrong, then that's a problem.6.
My favourite colour is orange. You'd be right to never guess that. It's not exactly the easiest colour to implement well. But when it works, it's an awesome colour!
Case in point.7.
Yes, I am aware I draw far too much Pokémon artwork. Not gonna stop anytime soon though.8.
Obvious Nintendo diehard here, but that doesn't mean I don't like other consoles.
So let's talk about said other consoles.
I make loads of jokes about how "PS3 has no games", but to be fair, there are a few I enjoyed. My favourite game is Heavy Rain.
If anything, the 360 had no games I was interested in. At least, no exclusives I cared about. Bayonetta was the only game I was kinda interested in. But then Ninty came along with a better version that comes with Bayonetta 2. (Which is somehow better) So now it doesn't even have that.
So yeah, PS3 is better than the 360, now you know.
And in case you're wondering. So far, the XBone has one game I'm interested in, so it's beating the PS4 at least. That's not saying much, and it's certainly not going to get me to shell out on it. I don't have that much money.9.
I actually think Metroid: Other M is one of the best Metroid games ever. Even with it's stupid story. (I also think the Ridley part was done pretty well)
I'm in a minority when it comes to that.10.
I taught myself how to draw. Sure, I took pointers from others into account. (Still do actually) But thanks to Art Academy, Flipnote and encouragement from my Flipnote Fans, I've improved massively from that quick 6 second animation that kickstarted my hobby.
Actually I'd like to take this opportunity to thank 3 of them.
My cousin, as I'm sure most of you know by now. She's always got time to have a look at my work and point out any things that need touching up. She also sketches far too many of my requests, despite me not drawing nearly enough in return.
Plus, she got me interested in drawing in the first place. So you have her to thank for that.
If my cousin started off my art, then this person definitely helped it mature. I think I first noticed her Flipnote animations sometime in 2010, and since then, I really worked on improving my animations. Yeah, they never got to her standards, but I damn well tried, and my art is better off for it. She still gives me pointers now and again. Especially when it comes to lighting. If she ever gives you advice, take it. She knows what she's on about.
And she does all that while upside down! Comes with living in Australia.
Safe to say this guy is one of my biggest fans. Because sometimes a British Kecleon needs a bit of praise now and again. Even when I did a crummy Flipnote, he'd find something good about it. And he'd never lie, he'd find that positive and point it out.
It doesn't sound like much, and some people would say constant praise is a detriment to improvement.
I say bugger to that, what's wrong with being nice? It definitely hasn't stopped me from improving over the years.
Anyway, time for questions that
asked me.What is your favourite food?
That would be Southern Fried Chickan. (No, I didn't spell that wrong) Sounds unhealthy, I know, but I'm actually quite skinny.
It's called metabolism, and I have it in spades.Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In London still.
Honestly, I don't know. Life is unpredictable. I don't believe anyone can answer this question. I'd like to be still drawing for fun.How often do you use technology?
All the bloody time, I'm typing this on a PC right now.
I've already mentioned that I do all my drawing on a 3DS XL, so that says it all.Do you play games often?
Yep, when I'm not hit by artistic inspiration, I'm probably playing a game.What is your favourite game?
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of SkyHow are you today?
I'm British today, so naturally, I complain when I'm actually completely fine.Why did you join Deviantart?
It wasn't to draw that's for sure.
I've been on DA for 7 years now. But I've only been drawing for around 4.
My cousin insisted I join, so I did. But I did pretty much nothing with it, I had no interest.
It was when I started getting into Flipnote that I revived my account. And it was only really when I stopped that I started posing artwork here.
So, for over half my time here. I've done nothing.What do you do in your spare time?
Play games, draw. That's about it. It's simple, but I like it. I don't actually have many friends outside of the internet. To be frank, I only have one, and he lives in Ireland.
I've lost contact with any friends I had in Primary school
As for secondary school, I was not a well liked kid. I hated sport and owned a Gamecube, what did you expect?Are you on any other sites?
Um, Tumblr. But I wouldn't say I was very active on that.Do you like cake?
Depends on the cake, really. But I generally like Cake.
I prefer Biscuits though.There, all done!
Now here are my 10 questions. For absolutely no reason, these are gonna be done in the form of exam questions. And I can't promise all of them will actually make any sense.1.
