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!

Who of my Watchers has red/cyan 3D glasses?
I know that Izzi and Ret do... 

Anyone else?
So I discovered two lines today that I need to put somewhere because of how funny they are. To me, anyway
The first one is one I thought of myself.
[When one person doesn't like the other person's cooking they say to that person:]
"Your food is the place taste buds go to die"

I must use that line:above: somewhere

Then the second...
There's this show called "Galavant" that I really need to watch, but I keep forgetting to tune in to ABC on Sundays! :tantrum:
It's a comedy about a legendary swordsman and the associated clichés, so you if you know me at all you'd know why I'd NEED to watch that, :XD: but I haven't seen a single episode yet, so I need to go watch.
I new YouTube video popped up from ABC because it was "recommended for me" based on my listening to the promo song too much. :XD:
I had been thinking that maybe the rest of the show just wouldn't live up to the high expectations the promo song gave me, and other commenters shared that concern, but we wanted to watch it anyway.
Apparently, if the next song I heard is any indication, the rest of the show will be just as good. That song contained the funniest set of lyrics I've ever heard in a song that I can remember since I listened to the I Don't Want No Pigeons song! :XD:
Just imagine a man and a woman walking under a tree and singing the following:

She sings to him: :music:You're utterly disgusting. I loathe your manly stink.:music:
To which he sings back: :music:I see your mouth start moving, and God, I need a drink.:music:

That's the funniest thing ever. To me, anyway. :rofl::lmao:

It's extra funny to me because, although Todd and Eva would not sing that :XD:... their relationship is close enough to the one in that song to make me think. Those lines will never be used in Todd & The Shining Sword, but WOW.

Haven't heard the song yet, and wanna hear it for  yourself? Here. :below:

If you can get over how funny it is for just five seconds, and know anything about how the story goes at all, (or if you just don't find it funny), then you'll see, as an artist that you probably are if you're reading this, that the whole song is truly brilliant. In a very serious way, actually. It just also happens to be unbearably funny.

Sorry if I overreacted, and NEITHER of the two lines this post is about were funny to you. I'm sorry you're offended. :la:

And speaking of funny things, I don't know if everyone knows this, but my Half-Assed Christmas Special came out. If you haven't read that, and would like to the link to the almost-done comic is here:below:

: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

Hello! Thanks a lot for the comments you left on my artwork! Your comments sounded very honest and full of character, they were very fun to read :) I appreciate it a lot and I hope you enjoyed the rest of my gallery ^_^
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Good comments are the only comments I usually try or want to leave :) and I don't like to simply leave- or simply get- empty praise.
AyumiNazu Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Professional General Artist
Well, I do mean it when I said I enjoyed reading your comments :)
Thanks again~
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oops I think that came across wrong. I wasn't implying you left empty praise! I meant from other people in general !!:noes:!! :forgiveme:

Hello,What did you like about my characters ?^^

Just wanted some feedback,If you don't mind. :)
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I didn't actually analyze any of them on much of a level, to be honest, so I looked at the deviations more as images then as characters, if that makes sense. I remember long hair and the kind of design and description that I might want to view and read later, and the pics were nice so I faved them. I remember your OC led travelers to her village.
Now I know how it feels to be me because, thinking about it consciously, I really want to know what people think of my characters also, but sometimes people look at my pictures as pictures.

One thing I can say though is that looking at your deviations made me realize more about your avatar: That's not an animation you got from someone else, and that's not a scarf either! You animate really well! I animate too.
Chinnaru Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Student Digital Artist
First of all thanks for such a well thought out reply.

Some people design characters for different purposes,sometimes story and sometimes just an idea for fashion etc.

Thanks I'm glad you like my avatar,I guess having a fringe that long does look like a scarf haha.

I had a look at your spell animation ^^

I'm currently an animation student :)
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
:phew:I didn't know if you'd like that Reply because I was was kinda being what could be too honest... ^^;

I'm about to make some blinking animations... I was supposed to have started them already, but didn't make them yet. 

:film:You looked at my spell animation, though? :doh: I hope it was the birthday spell you looked at! If it was the "Headache Spell" one, that one shows zero of my animating ability, and requires :icon3dglassesplz: to be viewed... and then I messed it up making the 3D too extreme so the effect doesn't work right on the right side if you view the image too large :iconefacepalmplz:
The best animation I ever did was Happy Superlate Birthday Sachiko-Chan!! It's too old and didn't get finished, but if I was only going to show off one animation I did, that would be it. ;) You should look at that one. I've never seen someone do that with crayons.
Is there a specific animation of yours that I should have looked at?

While it's true people draw characters for different reasons, usually the thing that differentiates a picture with a character in it from a picture of a character is.. well... emphasis on character. Usually, when we want feedback on a character, what's inside them, who they'd be outside the very specific context of the piece, and their design matter more relative to the appearance of the piece than it usually would for another work, I think.

It's the hat that sells it. :XD: The hat looks like a snow hat in silhouette, so that encourages the hair to look like a scarf. Even though she appears to be wearing a dress that would be too short for cold, it could also really look like a coat instead, and with boots. :snowflake:

I hope you like it!

Thanks for the fav
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Normally, it bugs me a little when people miss all the "don't thank me for faves" messages I have on my Profile, but you actually drew me a picture, so instead of feeling annoyed, I actually feel special. :meow: :thanks:

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you 
have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re
nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this 
message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, 
and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 
deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will
happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Aww. When I saw this message, I skipped over it to read it last because I thought it was the longest Comment on Todd Vs Kim :XD: . Thanks, but I normally don't tag people anymore because I have too much to do and no one to tag that often. :shrug: It's got a nice message, though.
IceyGhosty Featured By Owner 6 days ago  New member Hobbyist General Artist
I was a bit worried that you don't do these chain tag things, but also thought you'd appreciate it ^-^ 
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You thought right on both! :)
