☩ Fritz N / USA / Extroverted Introvert / Animator, Artist, Weirdo ☩


I'm a huge animation enthusiast/artist, surreal art fan, horror writer and reader, obsessive coffee drinker, daring mold breaker, and crooked jittery human creature. I am also extremely interested in transhumanism and demonology.


This DeviantArt account is mainly dedicated to Sonic fan art, but I will eventually be updating both my cartoon blog and graphic novel blog on Tumblr. I will get the links on here upon their completion. Expect lots of strangeness, raunchiness, ridiculousness, and bizarre things to occur here. I am a friendly person. I will do my best to get back to everyone who leaves comments or asks questions.


LINKS:

Sonic Tumblr: percy-po.tumblr.com/
Walmsley (graphic novel) Tumblr: walmsley.tumblr.com/

Hello fellow deviant dwellers. How are things?

I think I'll dedicate this journal to my thoughts about what's been happening around here lately. As many of you have noticed I'm sure, the activity of this site has dwindled drastically. Even extremely popular users see a fraction of comments and favorites compared to what their work used to see. It's weird.

When Tumblr really started taking off, I've noticed less and less activity on here. Any artist you can think of (including myself) seemingly has a Tumblr account now. Not everyone, but most. And most who have set up that account are now mostly active on there (I'm just too busy in real life to be active in general, lol.)

What irks me most though, is the fact that Tumblr has a horrible interface for art. Don't get me wrong. It's simple, fast, and convenient with better mobile contrast. But it doesn't feel artist friendly to me. Honestly Pixiv has the best setup hands down. Alas however, I don't speak Japanese. (It's mostly anime-oriented stuff on there anyway. Which I like, but my crap is bizarre and unlike a lot of stuff that gets circulated on there.)

I quite frankly don't see the appeal in the artist sense. Sure the gifs are funny, the reblogs are annoying, and the memes are baloney. But that shouldn't be the cause of pull for artsy people. No. Can't be.

What is damaging about sites like Tumblr, is that the lack of feedback can be harmful to a person's connectivity with their friends and fans.

Sure. You post something. It gets 5000 up-votes (or whatever the hell they're called). Well, congrats, 5000 people clicked a button on your picture. Yippee! But what do they LIKE about it? What DON'T they like about it? Why do they follow you? WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE!?!?

The whole reason for me posting art is (aside from it making me happy as an individual,) to influence others and share thoughts and ideas. You feel recognized. (And it is a basic common fact that people rely on other peoples' existence for their own sanity to remain intact.)  So Tumblr......It's almost like joining a book club and then entering a room with everyone in their own silent cubicle silently tossing books they like from one cube to the next. Peculiar instance if you ask me.

I do like the ability for customization. I do like the mobile layout. I do like the freedom of expression. But something about Tumblr is very off-putting for me. Not even in the sense of its user-base (which yes, a majority is a bunch of whiny teenagers.) I'm talking in the literal, actual factual design and structure of the whole thing. It's very....bland, if you will.

DeviantArt has problems. It has problems because whoever controls this ship won't pay attention to what ARTISTS want. There are so many elements that need changed. I could write an entirely different post about that. For now my point is simple: there is no nice place to post art. Not for me at least.

I hope that someday someone will come along and design a site that is friendly for comics, animation, pictures, motion comics, and etc. Equipped with the ability to customize and illustrate who you are. Open discussion, and encourage improvement.

Man, I really hope that comes around someday.

Cool uh? Llama Emoji-05 (Flower Sparkles) [V1] thank you again XD

I try to make Amy a bit more older in general so she's in a way mature now and Sonic is more attracted by her so he let his "male instinct" come into game haha XD

Hey! I've always loved your art style, just wanted to tell you that.

Also I (think?) I remember reading this angsty UKUS doujin you made before but I can't find it anywhere. Would you be able to link me to it? :)

Have a nice day~

Thank you very much! :D

That was something old and unaffiliated. As of the time being I do have it on file, but not on the web. Someday I may archive it, but for now I can't. Sorry! :(

And thank you!
