Todd Versus Lukian

:bulletred:Nothing will make me happier than you reading the action comedy comic, Todd VS Lukian, and leaving Comments if you like it or want to say how it could be improved. Nice, convenient links to all the other pages so you can keep on reading! ;)

:bulletgreen:Remember to Read :bulletblue:Todd & The Shining Sword!:bulletblue:
And comment!!

It's funny!


ToddNTheShiningSword has started a donation pool!
122 / 400
Well, now I know that maybe, just maybe, someone would donate to me, because it happened. I filled my last bar, so I'm going again. This time I want to see maybe also if I could get some of the assorted folks I see on other people's pages that drop in and drop off literally a point or two to get in on the act. I'm going to try to get enough to buy 3 months of Premium with points alone!

But I really want to use the points to help others also!
And by donating points, you're supporting Todd & The Shining Sword! Have you read that comic yet? You should!

You must be logged in to donate.

Please don't thank me for Faves or Watches

This is an additional button I put down here just in case people are using the 'End' key or something to skip everything on my page, and go straight to the Comments, so they miss the other big button above them.
Your intentions may be good, but is not pleasant to receive these spam-flavored messages.
Favorites for dA by C.-L. by trad-milay
AHA! I THINK I've found the way to redeem myself for posting self-promotional Journals!: promote someone else instead! :omg:

So today, my featured deviant will be :iconthesilhouett3:
Why? BECAUSE I still need to finish reading her story!!
She writes interesting poetry, but there's something else she's been writing that's even more special and important than that. She has an interesting story called There's Just Something About Leo that you should read. Reading that story in her Gallery is as important as reading Todd & The Shining Sword is in mine, so you better read some of it if you go there, or Imma throw a tomato at you. ( :boo: :pointl:That's how it's gonna come >:3 )
The most interesting part about it is at first, it actually reads as an Islamic romance! WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU READ ONE OF THOSE?
But then there's a twist to it. ;) I'll let you go read it and find out.

And don't use your Christianity as an excuse to not read it, either.
Check out this review by a Christian. And she's so good, she got a DD, so her review matters. That means that even if you're a Christian, you can read it too! So no excuses. >:3 I made excuses because I've been busy with art, Comments, and helping my mother with things- but you don't get to!

I have two other deviants I wanted to feature, :iconblogybo: and :icondangercurl:, but this Journal got long, so :iconthesilhouett3: got all of it. :meow: They get dibbs on the next one. :nod:
  • Mood: Sympathy
  • Listening to: Freestyle
  • Reading: dA messages
  • Watching: American Ninja Warrior
  • Playing: Minesweeper
  • Eating: Tuna noodle casserole
  • Drinking: Coffee
  • Mood: Resentful
  • Listening to: Obscure video game music
  • Reading: dA messages
  • Watching: Star Trek: TNG
  • Playing: Minesweeper
  • Eating: pancakes and turkey
  • Drinking: Coffee
Since my last Journal was just shameless promotion of existing arts, it failed to generate any comments on those arts.
So I'll bump THAT ONE with this one! :D (Don't be afraid to go back to the last one and comment on one of those now, if you suddenly started to want to. [ :spammer: ] ;) )

This time I'll promote something new instead.
Behold, this!

Don't praise it too much, because there's a lot wrong with it! But it's still the most effort I've ever put into a picture of Todd.

The reason I'm posting this this way is because that is actually part of something bigger that I have not finished, and I wanted to still be able to get feedback on it now, but I still want people to view it in the near future, when I post it as a deviation, because if they don't, they won't see the connection with the other parts.
So if you see this again in your watch stack in the future, go ahead and check it out again to see it in a higher resolution, and see it's description and connection. ;)

:bulletred:"I'd rather have Comments on my ART than my Profile", so no need to thank me for faves, please. Or Watches.

I've got so much art I need to make that I'm immune to artist's block!

:thumbsup: Todd & The Shining Sword FTW!
:thumbsup: Regular readers of the ^^above^^ comic
:thumbsup: Babes :eyes: :XD:
:thumbsup: Emotes

I personally feel like it's almost dumb to post your dislikes if they're all things that nobody likes. Things other people like that you personally hate are much more interesting! So...
:thumbsdown: Sleeping excessively
:thumbsdown: Some people like to argue. I dislike arguing, because I really don't like competition of any kind. Unless I'm WATCHING the competition. Watching people compete is fine.
:thumbsdown: I hate it when random strangers talk to me on the street. I don't care what it's about. If I don't know you, and we don't have business, then don't talk to me unless it's to alert me to something. (The ladies are probably saying "Welcome to our world. Men bug us all day" lol)
Of course, I love to talk to strangers on deviantART! Just not IRL!
:thumbsdown: I don't like people who feel disdain for poor people.

Personal Quote: "Wow. That was bad."

Please don't thank me for faves

Thanks for the :+devwatch:. You did a really good job on the Link and Dark Link piece. The tracing part doesn't matter, you still did really good. Grin revamp

Thank you first human point donation! (*^*)
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow. According to the time of this message and the timing of my donation, it took you 2 minutes and 22 seconds to discover I donated and send me this message. X3
:flagus:Heh I thought you'd just go to bed and see it in the morning, lol. Or miss the Bulletin like I do. :XD:
KamiHime Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2015  Student General Artist
Lol blame it on dumb luck
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Heheh that's a lot of luck.

And speaking of luck-ish stuff, you know, one of the things that makes me want to go over to the Give-A-Watch-Get-A-Watch Group is when I see an uncommonly large number of names in my upcoming birthdays list and deciding it could be nice to have more over there, and then I go over to the group and try to find a new person to Watch that I would actually either WANT TO Watch, or want to talk to, or both. All I watched from there the other day was you. And then guess what here comes your birthday already~ :XD: I didn't expect someone to be added to my birthday list just that quick when all I did was that! :XD:

Yeah, I couldn't stay away from the triforce too long huh. xD
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, since you said that, and you volunteered or a Watch Trade (which I remembered to do ^^; ) then that means it's spam time. :spam: :P
Look at this :pointr: Side-By-Dark-Side >:3
Zelda time. :la:
TheSilhouett3 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Long time no see O.o
Just thought I'd drop by and say hi!! :3
How're you doing?
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner Edited Jun 12, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
HEY! It's YOU! :D
It HAS been a long time!
I was actually slightly worried that maybe you'd gone off dA, due to me not finishing your stories yet. I tried to send that other person to read them for me, not because I didn't want to read them myself, but because, well, she was a Muslim female who likes to read stories, and I thought she's like, read and Comment, (seems like she did!) and because I haven't had the time management to be able to get far enough with in my messages and responsibilities that I'd have the time to read several chapters and give you the comments you actually deserve. 

BUT I'm at least keeping it manageable now, so it's not all out of hand. There's Something About LeoTM is still on my summer reading list. Even though I'm not in school anymore, and thus should not have such a list!

Guess what else? Part of the reason I'm too busy at the moment is because... well, I was actually in financial trouble at the end of May... bad trouble really, because I was just a little bit short on something I needed to pay for, but payday wasn't until about 2 days after the payment was due, and nobody had anything to loan me so I was increasingly freaking out. Then somebody on here commissioned me! :squee: That fixed that and saved the day at the end of the month and now everything's fine.
Then I got another later, so now I have moneh at last. :3
But it's funny... because normally, whenever you have issues with school or work, that means you really need to spend more time working and less time on art, but art just paid a bill so that means I actually HAVE TO spend more time on art for the time being. :meow:

But I can't just make anything. Birthday presents and Commissions only first. *nods*

Also, I learned a trick to type old-fashioned emotes without them displaying emoji-style :) That means I can now communicate with you properly because you and your computer don't like emojis. :P :nana:
TheSilhouett3 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
ooh close call. Yup looks like art saved your a**
By the way emotes are fine, i just mentioned one time that i didnt use them on my ipad because it was inconvenient. But seeing them is fine....and I mainly use laptop now so everything's all good. Yes I've been off DA for a while, mainly because life has been stressful in every way. I'll just come out and say it, i have a generalised anxiety disorder that has pretty much ruined now Im in the process of picking up the shattered pieces without bleeding all over the place (metaphorically of course). Looks like we both have had a rough time...i dont know about you but for me, I think Im at that stage where absolutely NOTHING can disappoint me because I've hit so much of it that i give no sh*ts anymore. (: but dont worry, i havent given up (yet) 
I have written quite a bit actually but not uploaded any. You're lucky you make some money, I'd love to do that >.<
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, I figured a good while back that you weren't actually an anti-emote activist. :XD: I just remember that old news time when you couldn't use them properly. I'll stop kicking the dead horse now. *nods*

A friend of mine on dA used to have in her sig that at times like this when you're falling apart you need someone to hug you tight enough that all the broken pieces stick back together again :meow: so hopefully you have someone like that. :tighthug:

Are you sure nothing disappoints you now? Sometimes I think when we're at our lowest points maybe we can still be disappointed, but we convince ourselves we're not?
Well, I'm still working at trying to get to and through the whole story, and comment on it too. Just busy... and the word "lucky" is quite right, because I've never been commissioned before.

If you wanted to make money on the internet, how could you do it? Do you have a PayPal or something? I do.
