My Awesome List

I just need to point out to everyone that the following people are awesome.


ToddNTheShiningSword has started a donation pool!
132 / 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.

Favorites for dA by C.-L. by trad-milay
Once again I'll start with a "First-Off" about previous Journals.
People should really still be commenting on my older Journals, because there's a cool one about Maze Mountains and an even cooler one asking for Todd & The Shining Sword video game ideas, so seriously, people. Check those out. One is even a drawing challenge no one took.

Anyways, on to today's subject!

The time is finally coming to let some of the many new characters loose, so you're finally gonna find that there's more to Todd & The Shining Sword than Todd, Dappy and Eva, plus whoever's OC Todd happens to be fighting! :XD:
It's close enough now that I can start naming names, here.
A good while back I did a Poll about who you guys were interested in. You can still vote in it if you want to, but it's been "decided" already.

Ryugo's girlfriend (May) was ranked last on the interest Poll, so I won't be going out of my way to make any drawings of her... but that doesn't mean you won't see her! Eva's ex, Simon ranked second-last. What I'll do with that is this: I don't normally do practice drawings of characters. I normally just draw them into comics after a single practice drawing, and work them out as I go. Since Simon ranked quite low, and I was on the fence about whether to do more practice of him, I'll use his low score as an excuse not to do practice drawings of him! :XD: Lazy. I know. I misused the dA Poll feature to do laziness instead. :ashamed:

The hands-down favorite was Todd's ex-girlfriend. Since she got more votes than everyone else combined, she gets two things. She's going to get a proper practice drawing, and in addition to that, I'm going to add an episode of Maze Mountains to the list in that Journal mentioned :above:above:above: (Just above "Freeze The Past") that you should have read by now! ;)
So you'll be seeing Shaza soon. AND because Shaza also has a Dappy-type creature for a pet/friend/sidekick/whatever, and because that creature tied for second with Eva's sister, that creature (Madness) will be added in to Shaza's drawings.
Eva's sister, Dyana, will also get a proper drawing.

So that's what's coming up, people. :eager:
I leave you with a question:
What should a "Dappy creature" be called? I don't know what to call his species. Names like Dappity, Dapper and Merp have all come to mind, but maybe you guys could think of something to advise. ;)

and I haven't forgotten the results of the poll before that, either
  • Mood: Daily Needs

  • Drinking: Coffee
I guess before I say anything else, I need to make sure that :iconforeverblix: and :icondangercurl: know that I haven't forgotten them! MAN my recent life got rough. It got about as bad as it could have gotten without any actual tragedy occurring, so I was so busy my head was spinning and I didn't even have time for sleeping, let alone art. But now that that's all over, I had to relax and make some silly stuff I wanted to make, and now I'm back! :happybounce:

So I just wanted to post this and see if any ideas come.
I would like to know if any of you guys out there have any idea of something I could do for a simple video game based on Todd & The Shining Sword. The game only needs to be simple in that it cannot have a large scope, and is based on a comic where I haven't even finished that much ( OTL ) and it can't have way too much level design! Other than that, it could actually be kinda complex, so if you guys have any complex ideas that would work with that, I'd even want to hear those.

I'm not saying I'll make the game, but still, shoot, because I dunno. The main thing that always stopped me from making a Todd & The Shining Sword video game is that I never had the inspiration. I know enough programming to give it a try. I just never had an idea.

And the game could be about any character(s). Right now, the best idea I have is actually for a game about Eva, but that's actually kinda messed up in that I don't want to have a game about Eva if I can't think of one for Todd. The thing that caused this, though is that I like the mechanic I came up with for Eva's game... That's why I almost thought of getting started on hers...

But yeah... a simple game that's still really fitting would very likely inspire me, so if any of you Watchers want to put an idea out there and see if I make it, shoot! And if any of you are reading this and don't know enough about Todd & The Shining Sword to make a suggestion, you better get into my Gallery and go find out about it! :XD: Like NOW! :XD: GO! >:3

Not saying I'll use anyone's idea, or even get the game made this century, but whatever.

OH! And two more things! There were two or three fun Journals I posted before this, and those Journals could use a few Comments too!
Also, I still need to make some more character art based on the result of that Poll that was done a while back! ;)
  • Mood: Distracted
  • Listening to: Nothing!
  • Reading: Nothing, actually

  • Playing: Minesweeper
  • Eating: Fish and salad
  • Drinking: Coffee

: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

Hey there, long time no hear! and yeah I know I haven't submitted anything to DA in a while, hopefully soon as I'm going to be starting a couple of projects shortly. Thanks for all the lovely comments on my work and hopefully I'll be updating soon. Keep an eye out. Hope you're well! :)
