Just over a week ago, I tagged a few people with questions done in the form of an exam. Because I can.

I also promised that I would actually mark these and give a not very secret prize to the person who got the most marks.
I'm like the world's most unqualified teacher! Let's get started and look at some of the answers I was given.

1. Johnny, Donny and Ronnie are arguing over which console is the best out of the N64, PS1 and Dreamcast.
Johnny likes the N64.
Donny likes the PS1.
Ronnie likes the Dreamcast.
In your opinion, who is correct and why? (2 marks)

:iconpoplobox:   None Of Them As They Shouldn't Be Arguing Over Consoles In The First Place. Each Console Has Good Games And Bad Games, Good Qualities And Bad Qualities. To Argue Over Which Console Is Better Is Like Arguing About Which Pizza Topping Is Better, They're Pretty Much Based On The Same Thing, Just Made Differently.

Noble answer, but nobility has no place in an exam. Except for when it comes to cheating.
0 marks
(Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I'm being unbelievably strict)

:icontoatom: Johnny is. Too many classic games on N64 to ignore.

Short, simple and to the point. Everything an examiner looks for.
2 marks

:iconchildpom: Johnny, because Nintendo.

Somehow even more to the point.
2 marks

2. Most Americans haven't heard of the brilliant sitcom, Father Ted. Explain. (5 marks)

:iconpoplobox:   Most Americans Haven't Heard Of Father Ted Because Due To The Fact That Father Ted Is Based In Ireland, Most Of The Jokes Would Be Lost On Americans As They Wouldn't Understand The British/Irish Humour Conveyed In Father Ted; The Same Applies For American Humour For The British/Irish. Another Thing To Point Out Is That It's A Sitcom Based Around Religion And Because America Isn't A Very Religious Country In Comparison To Britain And Ireland, The Biblical Jokes Would Be Lost On Them. The Final Reason That I Can Think Of For This Is That Father Ted Was Only Produced In The UK By Channel 4 So The Only Way For Americans To Even Be Able To See Father Ted Was If They Searched It Online (Of Course, If Someone From Britain Told Them About It First) Or If They Ordered It On Amazon, Making For More Difficult Viewing Which Isn't Ideal In The, Let's Face It, Lazy Community We Have Today.

Fantastic answer! Someone understands the kind of answers that exams look for. Shame there's only 4 reasons.
4 marks

:icontoatom: Neither have I. Are you sure it's not all in your mind, Glen?

Student questions my sanity when it comes to TV sitcoms. And to be fair, he's got a point.
2.5 marks

:iconchildpom: Because most Americans are very close-minded and also don't have the brilliant sense of humour that we Brits do. Sarcasm and subtle jokes go right over their heads, better just leave them to their Big Bang Theory, the enlightened already have their reward.

2 marks for the points you've made, plus an extra mark for the implication that The Big Bang Theory is overhyped drivel. Because it is. Stereotyped trash, in my opinion.
3 marks

3. If a train leaves Manchester at 16:00 and a bus leaves France at 17:54, how long will it take before anyone realises that they probably won't crash into each other? Show your working. (3 Marks)

:iconpoplobox:   No Time At All Due To The Fact That A Train And A Bus Are VERY Unlikely To Cross Paths And Therefore Even Acknowledge Each Other. No Time At All Because There Would Be Nothing For Either Party To Worry About In The First Place/Think About. The Time Here Is Irrelevant

You've somehow made this question seem even more pointless than it actually is.
3 marks

:icontoatom: Possibly infinite time, considering that is a very odd thing to be thinking about if the first place. Also given that buses do not drive on train lines, and train lines in France are probably not compatible with English trains, it's basically an axiom that the question at hand is already resolved.

Somehow, you've given a completely different answer and still arrived at a thought-provoking conclusion.
Also, bonus mark for pointing out that Buses don't drive on train lines. People need to know that.
3 marks

:iconchildpom: 0 minutes, because knowing the French, they haven't even considered it. They're too busy striking for the bus to even leave.
e^(-iπ) + 1, x^3+y^3+z^3-3xyz- 
(x+y+z)(x^2+y^2+z^2-yz-zx-xy) =  ax    ² + bx + c = 0


You've made me giggle, and everyone knows examiners never giggle. You get docked a mark for that.
But then you saved yourself by being the only person to actually show your working.
3 marks

4. When did you find out that Glen-i existed? Extra marks will be awarded for method. (3 marks)

:iconpoplobox:   I First Found Out That Glen-i Existed On Flipnote When I Saw Him Mentioned In An MdM Flipnote Of Some Sort (I Can't Remember Which One It Was But I Remember It Was Something By MdM). I Then Went Onto Their Profile Only To Find Charming And Hilarious Flipnotes To Which I Then Downloaded Most Of Them To Watch Again And Again. After This, When Everyone Left Flipnote, I Decided To Get In Touch With Him, As Well As Other Flipnote Artists, On Facebook And Now Here We Are, Being Rad Friends.

I honestly had no idea MdM knew of me. Seriously, I had no clue.
Really tempted to dock a mark for using the word "Rad" What is this? The 80's?
But that would be too strict.
3 marks

:icontoatom: Poplo did it.

Student gives the impression that knowing me is somehow breaking the rules and then proceeds to blame another student for it.
I bet teachers liked you.
3 marks

:iconchildpom: I first found out he existed from an article in a Nintendo magazine that showcased the best flipnotes in the region. His spirit tracks flipnote was one of them. However I didn't actually find his other flipnotes until later, at which point I decided to be his friend and do a collab with him. Ah yes, the good ol' days.

I remember being shown that article.
3 marks

5. In relation to the previous question, what is your favourite Glen-i artwork and why? (2 marks)

:iconpoplobox:   Oh, This Is A Tough One. Hmmmm. I Think It Would Have To Be The One With Casalot Trying To Impress Amber On WABOA. I Just Really Like The Style And The Lack Of A Black Outline Makes It More Three Dimensional In A Sense That, When Using A Black Outline, It Automatically Puts The Idea Into People's Minds That It's A 2D Cartoon But The Way That This Piece Is Done Makes It Stand Out. The Highlights Are Also A Great Touch To Add Dynamic Lighting To The Image, Creating The Illusion Of Shine On The Krookodiles Which I Find Is Absolutely Fantastic.

Student uses unfortunate letters in a hilarious way. (Google WABOA)
Apart from that, good answer.
2 marks

:icontoatom: His most recent works are definitely best. His skills have improved greatly since he got Pokemon Art Academy. It would be interesting to see him draw something that wasn't Pokemon or Dillon for a change...

Way to point out that I draw too much Dillon fanart. Jerk.
1 mark
(I never said marking would be fair either. Unqualified teacher!)

:iconchildpom: it was hard to choose, but I'd pick this one!! 
Ready To Go: Redrawn by Glen-i
It's a redraw of a piece I really liked originally, but of course this one is more high-def and you can really see the improvement; of course there's lots of great art and flipnotes to choose from, so please assume that there are many things I would also consider my favourites.

Despite it being quite an old piece now, I can still look at this and think "I did good"
Nice choice.
2 marks

6. Biscuit or cake? Discuss. (5 marks)

:iconpoplobox:   Biscuit. With A Biscuit, They're So Easy To Make And So Easy To Eat. With A Cake, It Takes Hours Of Preparation And Cake Is Only Really Made When There's A Special Occasion And It Also Tends To Be Really Really Filling. When Eating A Biscuit, It Leaves You With Wanting More, So You Go Back To The Tin, Go Back To Your Seat, Eat Them, Want More, Repeat. With A Cake, It's Cut A Slice Of Cake, Eat The Cake, Feel Full, Sit Wherever You Were With Your Stomach Full Of The Single Slice. Going Back To The Biscuit Routine, It Also Makes For Good Exercise As When You're Walking To And From The Biscuit Tin, You're Burning Off The Calories You Get From The Biscuit. But With Cake, It Makes You Just Sit There, Keeping All The Calories You Just Took In. Therefore Biscuits > Cake

Another nice, informative answer here. If only you gave one more reason...
4 marks

:icontoatom: No.

Student thinks that standing up to the teacher is going to help him pass this test. Luckily, I'm in a kind of "Lame student movie cliché" mood anyway. (DISCLAIMER: This will never work in real life, don't even bother)
2.5 marks

:iconchildpom: I do like many biscuits, like digestives and chocolate bourbons and wagon wheels and chocolate chip cookies, so you'd think the answer is biscuits? Probably, but I still want to say cake, because maybe I can't eat as much but the more I think about cakes I like, the more I want to go eat some cake.

Student somehow puts bait and switch techniques into an exam answer. Kudos, have half a mark.
3.5 marks

7. Glen-i has an intolerance to peanuts. Did you know? (1 mark)

:iconpoplobox:   No I Did Not, But Now That I Do, I Will Keep It In Mind To Not Have Any Edibles That Contain Peanuts To Offer If I Ever Meet Up With Him.

Thoughtful. Shame this question is only worth 1 mark.
1 mark

:icontoatom: Biscuits.

Ah, you mixed the questions up. Whether you did it intentionally or not, you've still managed to answer the easiest question here completely wrong. That's quite impressive.
0 marks

:iconchildpom: That sounds vaguely familiar the more I think about it. It feels like I was told a few times, but I wouldn't have remembered off the top of my head. Or is this a trick question??

Student thinks that easiest question on test is a trap. You may be paranoid. But at least you answered the bloody question.
1 mark

8. In less than 5 sentences, explain why the Kecleon Glen-i constantly draws IN blue and black. (2 marks)

:iconpoplobox:  ALRIGHTY! Glen-i Constantly Draws In Black And Blue Because On Flipnote, The Only Colours Were Black, White, Red And Blue. The 2 Colours That Went Best Together To Make A Kecleon That Stood Out Were Black And Blue And Since Then, To Keep The Authenticity Of The Abnormally Coloured Pokemon, He Has Drawn Kecleon In Those Colours Ever Since. It Is Not Because It Is His Favourite Colour Because That Would Be Orange.

Nailed it!
2 marks

:icontoatom: Because the cold colours represent the sadness in his heart.

Damn dude... You make me sound like I'm constantly crying in a corner.
0 marks

:iconchildpom: Because fuck the police.

Elegant, but still wrong.
0 marks
Now excuse me, while I go cry in the corner because of a completely unrelated note.

9. What is your favourite piece of art that you have drawn? An extra mark will be awarded for a thumbnail. (2 marks)

:iconpoplobox:   Well, I Don't Really Have Favourites When It Comes To Drawings That I've Done But If I Really Had To Choose, It Would Be The One I Did Of Everyone Around June Time Because The End Result Made A Hell Of A Lot Of People Really Happy And That Brought A Big Smile To My Face, Therefore Making It My "Favourite" Drawing. (Dunno How To Thumbnail On Here So Here's A Link) 

www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi…

Nice answer, and hey, at least you tried by providing a link. Still can't give you full marks though.
1.5 marks

:icontoatom: I'm working on it. Here's a WIP, and it's already my favourite... Po-koro wip by ToaTom

Did exactly what I asked. That picture is looking nice so far.
2 marks

:iconchildpom: ARGH!! MY INDESCISION!!!! Anything from this folder is fair game, but if I absolutely haaaaaaad to choose one I'd say this one
mawile by childpom
it really shows my improvement and it's the first thing that springs to mind when I think of 'good art' that I've done. The only problem is when I look at my other pieces and think, ohhh but that one is good too... and THAT ONE I like that one, oh but this other one... and so it goes on.

It is always a tough question. And yes, it's a very good drawing, but you knew that.
2 marks

10. How many of these questions will actually help others to know more about you? And how condescending does that make me look? (2 marks)

:iconpoplobox: 5 Of Them Would Help People Know More About Me Because It Would Show That I Prefer Biscuits Over Cake (Most Of The Time), I'm Very Analytical, I Take People's Allergies Into Account When Being A Host, That I Don't Really Have Favourites And That I Don't Like To Bash Other Consoles

You answered the first question, but not the second. Oh yeah, I was deadly serious there.
1 mark

:icontoatom: Two. The rest were either obscure or about yourself, you condescending, self-centred asshole.

Absolutely correct. Full marks for you.
2 marks

:iconchildpom: in a way, all of them give the the chance to answer in a way that gives people some idea of personality, or my life, or my opinions. but I'd say at least 3. And it doesn't make you look condescending at all.

No, I was definitely going for condescending. Now that question was a trap. Your politeness let you down this time. But thanks anyway.
1.5 marks

All done, now here are your total marks.

:iconpoplobox: 21.5 marks
:icontoatom: 18 marks
:iconchildpom: 21 marks

And there you have it, :iconpoplobox: is today's A student. Damn good job. Damn good bloody good damn good job!
So he gets an art request off of me. (Shock, horror) Anything you like. (Within reason, I'm not going smutty for you. And remember, the more out of my comfort zone you put me, the more "not so good" it might turn out. You've been warned)

Thanks for going along with it. And remember to congratulate :iconpoplobox: in a way that masks the fact that he's a teacher's pet.
By :iconking-char: no less.

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)

1.
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.
Dalbert by Glen-i

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.

:iconugh-first-aid: 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.

:iconking-char: 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.

:iconchildpom: 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 :iconking-char: 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 Sky

How 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. Johnny, Donny and Ronnie are arguing over which console is the best out of the N64, PS1 and Dreamcast.
Johnny likes the N64.
Donny likes the PS1.
Ronnie likes the Dreamcast.
In your opinion, who is correct and why? (2 marks)

2. Most Americans haven't heard of the brilliant sitcom, Father Ted. Explain. (5 marks)

3. If a train leaves Manchester at 16:00 and a bus leaves France at 17:54, how long will it take before anyone realises that they probably won't crash into each other? Show your working. (3 Marks)

4. When did you find out that Glen-i existed? Extra marks will be awarded for method. (3 marks)

5. In relation to the previous question, what is your favourite Glen-i artwork and why? (2 marks)

6. Biscuit or cake? Discuss. (5 marks)

7. Glen-i has an intolerance to peanuts. Did you know? (1 mark)

8. In less than 5 sentences, explain why the Kecleon Glen-i constantly draws is blue and black. (2 marks)

9. What is your favourite piece of art that you have drawn? An extra mark will be awarded for a thumbnail. (2 marks)

10. How many of these questions will actually help others to know more about you? And how condescending does that make me look? (2 marks)

It says I have to tag 10 people, but I'm only gonna tag 5. Take that, Society!

:iconugh-first-aid::iconchildpom::iconyoshiddr::icontoatom::iconpoplobox:
But if you really want to, anyone can do this.

Those "Marks" are not just for show, I will actually grade these. The person with the most marks will get some sort of prize.
King Char by Glen-i
King Char
It's :iconking-char:'s birthday today... I think... Time zones are a funny thing.

If I had to choose two people who helped me improve my art over the 5 or so years I've been drawing, my cousin would be one of the choices. The other would be the fantastic artist I drew this for.

Of course, it's not the first time I've drawn King Char. Not even the second or third. But I don't care. New software I'm using, remember?

Anyway, I hope you like it, happy Birthday!
Loading...
...on Tumblr.

Yes, I know there's a few here that I admittingly forgot.
Life has a funny way of getting in the way of drawing.
I can only apologise...
If you want one, you're gonna have to get yourself to Tumblr and find my page.
Does anyone here still have a DSi/DSi XL with Flipnote Studio on it?

Yes, it's an odd request. But just humour me.
Just over a week ago, I tagged a few people with questions done in the form of an exam. Because I can.

I also promised that I would actually mark these and give a not very secret prize to the person who got the most marks.
I'm like the world's most unqualified teacher! Let's get started and look at some of the answers I was given.

1. Johnny, Donny and Ronnie are arguing over which console is the best out of the N64, PS1 and Dreamcast.

5. In relation to the previous question, what is your favourite Glen-i artwork and why? (2 marks)

:iconpoplobox:   Oh, This Is A Tough One. Hmmmm. I Think It Would Have To Be The One With Casalot Trying To Impress Amber On WABOA. I Just Really Like The Style And The Lack Of A Black Outline Makes It More Three Dimensional In A Sense That, When Using A Black Outline, It Automatically Puts The Idea Into People's Minds That It's A 2D Cartoon But The Way That This Piece Is Done Makes It Stand Out. The Highlights Are Also A Great Touch To Add Dynamic Lighting To The Image, Creating The Illusion Of Shine On The Krookodiles Which I Find Is Absolutely Fantastic.

Student uses unfortunate letters in a hilarious way. (Google WABOA)
Apart from that, good answer.

:icontoatom: His most recent works are definitely best. His skills have improved greatly since he got Pokemon Art Academy. It would be interesting to see him draw something that wasn't Pokemon or Dillon for a change...

Way to point out that I draw too much Dillon fanart. Jerk.

(I never said marking would be fair either. Unqualified teacher!)

:iconchildpom: it was hard to choose, but I'd pick this one!! 
Ready To Go: Redrawn by Glen-i
It's a redraw of a piece I really liked originally, but of course this one is more high-def and you can really see the improvement; of course there's lots of great art and flipnotes to choose from, so please assume that there are many things I would also consider my favourites.

Despite it being quite an old piece now, I can still look at this and think "I did good"
Nice choice.

6. Biscuit or cake? Discuss. (5 marks)

:iconpoplobox:   Biscuit. With A Biscuit, They're So Easy To Make And So Easy To Eat. With A Cake, It Takes Hours Of Preparation And Cake Is Only Really Made When There's A Special Occasion And It Also Tends To Be Really Really Filling. When Eating A Biscuit, It Leaves You With Wanting More, So You Go Back To The Tin, Go Back To Your Seat, Eat Them, Want More, Repeat. With A Cake, It's Cut A Slice Of Cake, Eat The Cake, Feel Full, Sit Wherever You Were With Your Stomach Full Of The Single Slice. Going Back To The Biscuit Routine, It Also Makes For Good Exercise As When You're Walking To And From The Biscuit Tin, You're Burning Off The Calories You Get From The Biscuit. But With Cake, It Makes You Just Sit There, Keeping All The Calories You Just Took In. Therefore Biscuits > Cake

Another nice, informative answer here. If only you gave one more reason...

:icontoatom: No.

Student thinks that standing up to the teacher is going to help him pass this test. Luckily, I'm in a kind of "Lame student movie cliché" mood anyway. (DISCLAIMER: This will never work in real life, don't even bother)
2.5 marks

:iconchildpom: I do like many biscuits, like digestives and chocolate bourbons and wagon wheels and chocolate chip cookies, so you'd think the answer is biscuits? Probably, but I still want to say cake, because maybe I can't eat as much but the more I think about cakes I like, the more I want to go eat some cake.

Student somehow puts bait and switch techniques into an exam answer. Kudos, have half a mark.

7. Glen-i has an intolerance to peanuts. Did you know? (1 mark)

:iconpoplobox:   No I Did Not, But Now That I Do, I Will Keep It In Mind To Not Have Any Edibles That Contain Peanuts To Offer If I Ever Meet Up With Him.

Thoughtful. Shame this question is only worth 1 mark.
1 mark

:icontoatom: Biscuits.

Ah, you mixed the questions up. Whether you did it intentionally or not, you've still managed to answer the easiest question here completely wrong. That's quite impressive.
0 marks

:iconchildpom: That sounds vaguely familiar the more I think about it. It feels like I was told a few times, but I wouldn't have remembered off the top of my head. Or is this a trick question??

Student thinks that easiest question on test is a trap. You may be paranoid. But at least you answered the bloody question.
1 mark

8. In less than 5 sentences, explain why the Kecleon Glen-i constantly draws IN blue and black. (2 marks)

:iconpoplobox:  ALRIGHTY! Glen-i Constantly Draws In Black And Blue Because On Flipnote, The Only Colours Were Black, White, Red And Blue. The 2 Colours That Went Best Together To Make A Kecleon That Stood Out Were Black And Blue And Since Then, To Keep The Authenticity Of The Abnormally Coloured Pokemon, He Has Drawn Kecleon In Those Colours Ever Since. It Is Not Because It Is His Favourite Colour Because That Would Be Orange.

Nailed it!
2 marks

:icontoatom: Because the cold colours represent the sadness in his heart.

Damn dude... You make me sound like I'm constantly crying in a corner.
0 marks

:iconchildpom: Because fuck the police.

Elegant, but still wrong.
0 marks
Now excuse me, while I go cry in the corner because of a completely unrelated note.

9. What is your favourite piece of art that you have drawn? An extra mark will be awarded for a thumbnail. (2 marks)

:iconpoplobox:   Well, I Don't Really Have Favourites When It Comes To Drawings That I've Done But If I Really Had To Choose, It Would Be The One I Did Of Everyone Around June Time Because The End Result Made A Hell Of A Lot Of People Really Happy And That Brought A Big Smile To My Face, Therefore Making It My "Favourite" Drawing. (Dunno How To Thumbnail On Here So Here's A Link)

Nice answer, and hey, at least you tried by providing a link. Still can't give you full marks though.

:icontoatom: I'm working on it. Here's a WIP, and it's already my favourite... Po-koro wip by ToaTom

Did exactly what I asked. That picture is looking nice so far.
2 marks

:iconchildpom: ARGH!! MY INDESCISION!!!! Anything from this folder is fair game, but if I absolutely haaaaaaad to choose one I'd say this one
mawile by childpom
it really shows my improvement and it's the first thing that springs to mind when I think of 'good art' that I've done. The only problem is when I look at my other pieces and think, ohhh but that one is good too... and THAT ONE I like that one, oh but this other one... and so it goes on.

It is always a tough question. And yes, it's a very good drawing, but you knew that.
2 marks

10. How many of these questions will actually help others to know more about you? And how condescending does that make me look? (2 marks)

:iconpoplobox: 5 Of Them Would Help People Know More About Me Because It Would Show That I Prefer Biscuits Over Cake (Most Of The Time), I'm Very Analytical, I Take People's Allergies Into Account When Being A Host, That I Don't Really Have Favourites And That I Don't Like To Bash Other Consoles

You answered the first question, but not the second. Oh yeah, I was deadly serious there.
1 mark

:icontoatom: Two. The rest were either obscure or about yourself, you condescending, self-centred asshole.

Absolutely correct. Full marks for you.
2 marks

:iconchildpom: in a way, all of them give the the chance to answer in a way that gives people some idea of personality, or my life, or my opinions. but I'd say at least 3. And it doesn't make you look condescending at all.

No, I was definitely going for condescending. Now that question was a trap. Your politeness let you down this time. But thanks anyway.
1.5 marks

All done, now here are your total marks.

:iconpoplobox: 21.5 marks
:icontoatom: 18 marks
:iconchildpom: 21 marks

And there you have it, :iconpoplobox: is today's A student. Damn good job. Damn good bloody good damn good job!
So he gets an art request off of me. (Shock, horror) Anything you like. (Within reason, I'm not going smutty for you. And remember, the more out of my comfort zone you put me, the more "not so good" it might turn out. You've been warned)

Thanks for going along with it. And remember to congratulate :iconpoplobox: in a way that masks the fact that he's a teacher's pet.

Yes, it is.
I'm afraid I've just been crazy busy with life stuff and haven't had much time to myself.

Sorry for the long wait.

Yes, I did.

To be fair, I'm not a big fan of Tekken, so I can't be that excited for it. It's gonna have to do something pretty special to get me on board.

Yes, I did. I had the same name there. I was the Brit who tortured people with his awful singing.

Aw, thanks. I never really considered myself a big name. But everyone else on Hatena seems to disagree.

To be fair, it was one lucky break that got me noticed on Hatena. But it really is the quality of the followers that's important, not the quantity. I had something around 3,000 people watching me on Flipnote, but I'd say no more than 70 actually bothered to find me here. Despite me telling everyone they could find me here.

Those are the fans that I appreciate the most. And that makes you one of them. So, thanks very much!
