With tons of Deviant Art users telling the stories of their experiences on the site in celebration of its 14th birthday... I bet now is the time for me to talk about my experiences with DA, as well.

I have a great artistic talent (or so I proclaim myself to have), and I've been drawing ever since I was just a little kid. But it wasn't until my 19th birthday that I discovered DA. In fact, it was my artistic talent and experiences that called me to join this site, and I'm proud to have been here for three years. For someone who's been drawing since his youth, I had to start somewhere, just like all the rest of us... but quite enough about that. I'm the kind of person who likes to keep much of his private life, shall I say, reserved.

Meanwhile, in all the time I've spent on DA, I've come to appreciate the artistic quality of the works of nearly every deviant in this community, but there is room for exceptions. I see that this site does contain a number of works that are directly copied from copyrighted sources (such as copyrighted official artworks, photo-manipulation, screen captures, etc. -- all of which I see as violations of the ToS), and even drawings that look sketchy, or unimaginative, or like they were made in kindergarten art time. In fact, I don't appreciate these types of drawings... I only appreciate DA submissions that their artists spent considerable time and effort on. Again, I do not condone copyright infringement or lack of imagination.

My current art style takes its influences predominantly from Western animation and comics. When I first started uploading work to DA, my art style had some aspects influenced by anime, but I've since diluted those considerably. I can't claim any specific work as an influence on my art style. But that doesn't matter; what matters is that I like my current style a lot better than the previous versions.

Alternate Title: King of the Koopas... and the Self-Proclaimed Overlord of All the Mushroom World’s Evils

“TANSMSE”: “The (All-New) Super Mario Super Extravaganza,” my personal idea for a 21st-century animated TV series based on Nintendo's “Mario” franchise

When I first conceived the idea for “TANSMSE,” I started by creating “group portraits” of characters that would appear in the show’s cast; most of these are now just inferior-quality to me, as I’ve finalized the show’s art style and character designs, so I want you to get accustomed to the finalized designs of the “TANSMSE” characters. This is the show’s interpretation of Bowser, the King of the Koopas.

The show’s official writer’s bible would give him the following bio:
“His Most Repulsive Excellency Sean Morton Koopa, almost universally known by the nickname “Bowser,” is the great and mighty monarch of the evil-driven Koopa Kingdom. If you think his flamy mane and fiery breath are hot enough, wait until you see the unquenchable fire of his heart ― it rages with a burning hatred for all those of the Mushroom World’s inhabitants that stand for good and right, namely, everyone in the Mushroom World except the population of the Koopa Kingdom itself. In fact, he hates them so much that he will stop at nothing to want them destroyed! And to fulfill this colossal desire of his, he hatches tons of devious and dastardly plots against the good guys and gals of the Mushroom World and their various kingdoms. As far as Freudian psychology is concerned, Bowser’s ego and super-ego are driven almost exclusively by his id. That ugly, uncouth, and altogether beastly turtle-dinosaur hybrid is full of unmitigated selfishness and misanthropy. Hes so intimidating and vicious that he will not allow any of his kingdoms inhabitants to question his authority.
Bowser and his followers will do lots of despicable and nasty things to dispose of any government, military, defense force, national hero, or ordinary good citizen that dares to contend with them or stand in their way: they will capture, trick, bribe, threaten, attack, and insult; they will commit murder, fraud, theft, arson, privacy evasion, and just about every other crime you can think of; and they will use a countless array of powers, from the innate to the talisman-based, to defeat all the good guys. Bowser has a wide variety of mischievous supporters who range from his wretched wife Clawdia Koopa, to his maniacal military forces (an army commanded by General Koopatton, a navy captained by Admiral Kooporter, and an air force led by General Koopearson), to his fourteen black-sheep minions, the Koopalings. Bowser and the Koopa Kingdom
s other denizens are enormously destructive to the point where they will lead everyones lives into abysmal misery, but somehow or other, theres always a good guy who manages to crush the Koopa populaces ambitions. Bowser’s evil name is feared so much that it is at the very top of every wanted list in every single good nation of the Mushroom World, and he is the Mushroom World’s answer to all of the worst dictators in the Real World’s history.
Bowser has enemies in every denizen of every kingdom other than his own (with no room for exceptions!), but there is no one whom he can call a firm archnemesis, apart from the Mushroom Kingdom’s national hero, Mario. Before Princess Peach came of age and took charge of the Mushroom Kingdom’s government, Bowser used to frequently subject her to kidnapping, with the intention of turning her into his bride; upon hearing of it, Mario would be challenged to battle Bowser to save Her Highness. This happened no less than twenty-five known times before he gave up on Peach and decided to concentrate his attention on females who lead kingdoms other than the Mushroom Kingdom; furthermore, Bowser’s true wife, Clawdia, hated every moment of it. But at some ultra-rare point in this show’s run, he just might kidnap Peach yet again ― but not out of love, as he
s come to hate even her.
Although Bowser, with his nasty disposition, has an adamant unwillingness to serve anybody, at one point while suffering from amnesia, he was the rookie to a shadow thief. But in his mentally natural state, the Koopa King would threaten to scorch anyone whom he suspected of even thinking about becoming a boss to him.”


NOTE: The final paragraph of Bowser’s bio references how Popple the Shadow Thief has an amnesiac Bowser as his rookie during the events of the Game Boy Advance RPG “Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga.”

Alternate Title: The Mushroom Kingdom’s Favorite Government Leader

“TANSMSE”: “The (All-New) Super Mario Super Extravaganza,” my personal idea for a 21st-century animated TV series based on Nintendo's “Mario” franchise

When I first conceived the idea for “TANSMSE,” I started by creating “group portraits” of characters that would appear in the show’s cast; most of these are now just inferior-quality to me, as I’ve finalized the show’s art style and character designs, so I want you to get accustomed to the finalized designs of the “TANSMSE” characters. This is the show’s version of the Mushroom Kingdom’s loved and loving head of state, Princess Peach (or “Toadstool,” depending on what you personally call her).

In an official writer’s bible for the show, she would be given the following bio:
Meet Princess Peach, the incredible, adorable, and indomitable head of state of the Mushroom Kingdom. You may have once known her to be just a helpless damsel-in-distress, doing little more than wait to be rescued, or thought she had none of the things it takes to be adequate royalty. But for “TANSMSE,” weve overhauled her identity... a lot. This version no longer resembles one of those old-fashioned princess stereotypes you may have seen in childrens storybooks, fairy tales, or Disney movies; instead, shes portrayed here as a respectable, benevolent government leader who takes full responsibility for the tranquility, welfare, and national security of her kingdom. Taking on the look of a modern-day, real-world female head of state, Peach has a great deal of physical beauty that she retains with a perfectly healthy lifestyle, and always lets her feminine traits shine through with her buxom figure, blonde haircolor, nicely made-up face, and predominantly pink wardrobe.
Sensible and noble, Peach is respected and admired by all of her people, with very few exceptions. She has a lot of class, charm, and energy to her, and is as contemporary as princesses can be. Although a relatively young 35-year-old, she possesses a great deal of intelligence, cleverness, and practicality that much of today
s women dont even have, and when the Mushroom Kingdom is in a crisis of any kind, shell send folks like Mario and her own military and defense force to assess and resolve the situation and foil whoever is responsible, be it Bowser and the Koopa Troop or some other villain. Running a country is no easy task, but Peach knows that when you have an entire nations command under your belt, resting on your laurels is definitely the wrong way to go, so she demands that her Royal Cabinet and armed forces take their jobs seriously. Within her petite frame lies a lion-sized heart; she is very selfless and generous and shows a steady diet of unconditional love for her people. On our show, unlike her video game counterpart, this Princess is a lucky lady who rarely ever gets kidnapped, if at all; when she feels the need has arisen for her, shell even willingly pool her powers to aid in rescuing her kingdom's innocent inhabitants and punishing their tormentors. And she always gets a chance to show off her playful and fun-loving side; even when she participates in sporting events or races, she mixes her general politeness with a competitive spirit.
When Mario discovered the Mushroom Kingdom and rescued the Princess from Bowser
s kidnapping for the first time, the two of them began a long-lasting, intimate friendship; eventually, they became love interests. Mario and Peach treat each other in pretty much the same way that all husbands and wives ought to treat their spouses; neither one annoys, disrespects, or shows hatred for one another. And yet, it's been said that there's a mystery behind the truth about their relationship, which isn't even the least bit awful.

Born in Savannah, Georgia in the early 1990s, I am the son of a civil engineer and a former registered nurse. I have lived in my current hometown of Cary, North Carolina since 1994.
I have a versatile personality which allows me to possess many different interests in many different topics and people. I claim that I possess a great degree of intelligence, and I prove to be very literate -- I am able to read and write proficiently, and though my primary language is English, I speak several foreign languages as well. I show a diverse interest in studying, and though I may not have had a proper education (I was taught only in a couple of primary schools, an elementary school, and then I was homeschooled for a few years), I love to show a diverse interest in the world around me.
I possess a great artistic talent, and an art style that has cartoonish characteristics but is mostly realistic. I hate anything that is considered immoral, have zero tolerance for swearing or curses, and will stand no nonsense whatsoever. I despise much of the changes that have occurred in the world over the past 10 years, and I think that history would have been much better without such changes.
I am a born-again Christian (though not baptized), and I attend church and Sunday school regularly. My father once worked as a deacon.
