Because I am feeling a little bored right now, I have decided to do a journal entry that involves posting my favorite pictures that were done by my friends, and I am willing to post the pictures of the first ten artists who respond to my journal entry. To make things a little fair for myself, I will mainly include the pictures of the artists whose artwork I've been watching for a while, and I'll be posting the name/icon of them in each number, which I'll be able to update every now and then. Thank you, and enjoy!

I am posting this quick journal entry to discuss about the new game "DuckTales: Remastered", which is a remake of the original "DuckTales" video game on the NES. After hearing about the release of this game back in April, I became really excited about it because of how much I enjoyed "DuckTales" when I was a kid, and I also like to play the video games by Capcom every now and then. I was able to check out the trailers that were shown on YouTube, and I was actually impressed with how the game looks; Not only did the game feature remade versions of levels from the original game (such as The African Mines and Transylvania), but there also appears to be a level that would take place inside Scrooge's money bin, complete with booby traps and Beagle Boys. The game is pretty much a downloadable title that would be available for most current generation consoles, and because I now own an Xbox 360, I actually plan on downloading it onto my system once I'm able to get points for my Xbox Live account (after I access it for the first time, that is). Even so, I am still looking forward to this game, and I'd like to hear what everyone else thinks of it as well.

Just recently, I was able to buy myself an Xbox 360 with the money that I had saved up for a while, and I started playing it right after setting it up last night. Even though I've always been a Nintendo and Sega gamer as long as I could remember, I think it was about time that I started giving other game systems a chance, especially after wanting to play certain games that were not being released for certain systems that I usually prefer to own (namely, any console made by Nintendo). I've always been kind of skeptical when it comes to the Sony Playstation consoles, but I've never really found a reason to not like the Xbox consoles; Each time I've played an Xbox 360, I've actually enjoyed playing some of the games that were released on it, such as "Guitar Hero III", which I remember trying out at a local Game Stop a few years ago. After giving some thought, I was finally able to get an Xbox 360 after admitting that there really are good games that a worth playing. The game that I was able to buy with my Xbox 360 was "Sonic Generations", a Sonic game that was released a couple of years ago that wanted to play so badly (since I happen to be a die-hard Sonic fan), but I was unable to after realizing that it was not being released for the Nintendo Wii like I had hoped. After being able to try the game out, I have only one thing to say about the game after playing it for the first time: It...is...AWESOME!!! Despite the fact this game was never released on the Wii (even though it was actually released on the Nintendo 3DS, which I do not have yet), it is definitely a game that is meant to be enjoyed by Sonic fans both young and old, and I might be able to do a game review for it later on. For now, it is the only game that I currently have for my new console, but there are some more games I can think of that I'd like to add to my own library of Xbox games soon. In case anybody's wondering, I am mainly buying the games that I find appealing to me, including old-school series games and/or remakes like "Mortal Kombat" (in which this version of the game has Freddy Kreuger from "A Nightmare On Elm Street" as a playable character), but if anyone else knows about any games that are worth playing on the Xbox 360, I would really appreciate any recommendations for new games that I'm willing to try out.

Because I'm not really doing anything right now, I have decided to do a game review for the classic video game "Darkwing Duck", which was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System (or NES, for short) in 1992. As you would probably already know, this game is based on the Disney animated cartoon series of the same name, and it was also published and developed by Capcom, which is the game company that was known for making the best Disney-themed video games back in the day, including "DuckTales" on the NES and "The Magical Quest: Starring Mickey Mouse" on the SNES. In this game I'm reviewing, players take on the role of Darkwing Duck, the masked crime-fighter of St. Canard whose mission is to stop the bad guys of F.O.W.L. (the Fiendish Organization of World Larceny) from wreaking havoc in the city. The gameplay is very similar to the Mega Man games, in which Darkwing is able to jump around and shoot at enemies with his trademark gas gun while collecting items and power-ups, which allow him to attack his enemies in different ways. Just like in any action-platformer made by Capcom, players are able to select whichever level they want instead of just playing them in the same order each time. There's also hidden bonus stages in each level that Darkwing can access after finding them with this gas gun; They are very tricky to find, but worth playing one you find the locations for them. At the end of each level, there's a boss for Darkwing to fight, and they can range from easy to challenging; The bosses who appear in this game include (in no particular order): Quackerjack, Wolf Duck, The Liquidator, Megavolt, Bushroot, Moliarty, and Steelbeak. Since this game is made by Capcom, the music heard in the game is really nice and catchy, and I practically hum along to the music each time I play the game (especially Bushroot's level theme, which I found to be the most catchiest of all). The graphics in the game are also really nice and cartoon-like, which practically matches the style of the show it's based on. If you're a die-hard fan of Disney-themed video games, I would recommend this title if you haven't played it before, and I think it's worth talking about it anyone else mentions NES titles like "DuckTales" and/or "Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers".

After taking a break from posting new artwork on deviantART recently all week, I feel like posting a journal entry about something exciting that just happened to me last night. Yesterday, My sister and her boyfriend were able to take me along with them to Evansville, Indiana for some shopping and dinner. Shortly after we arrived in Evansville, the first thing we did was go out to eat for dinner; The restaurant we were able to eat at was Red Robin, which is known for their gourmet burgers, and it was actually our first time eating in one of those restaurants as well. Afterwards, we decided to do a little shopping/browsing at Eastland Mall; While there, I was able to buy a couple of Sonic The Hedgehog drinking glasses as well as a Sonic The Hedgehog leather wallet, which I was able to purchase at Spenser's Gifts for $30. After leaving the mall, we then drove off to the other side of Evansville; I didn't actually know where we were headed until my sister explained to me what the real purpose of our trip to Evansville was - "Weird Al" Yankovic was performing in Victory Theater that night, and they were able to buy tickets as kind of an early Christmas present for me as well! I was really excited after realizing what was going on, since my sister knew how much I love "Weird Al" Yankovic, and this happens to be my second time being able to see him perform live in concert. As you would probably guess, the show was just really awesome and amazing, and we were able to see him perform a lot of great songs including "TMZ", "Smells Like Nirvanna", "Skipper Dan", "You Make Me", "Party In The CIA", "Wanna B Ur Lovr", "CNR", "Craigslist", "Amish Paradise", "Perform This Way", "White & Nerdy", "Fat", "The Saga Begins", and "Yoda". Right before the concert ended, my sister was able to buy me a t-shirt and a couple of magnets, which would also be part of the Christmas gift I would receive early this year. One thing's for sure, I had a really nice and wonderful time at the concert, and it's definitely a night I would never forget.

Even though I am taking a break from posting newer artwork on dA this week, I have decided to post a journal entry about something on my mind while I was checking my messages recently. As everyone may probably already know by now, I am a guy who loves video games about as much as I love cartoons, so I feel like wanting to talk about the kind of video games that I enjoy playing. I've been pretty much a Nintendo gamer my whole life, although I also really enjoy playing games on Sega's game systems as well. I've never actually been too keen about Sony's game systems for some reason (even though there are a few game series released for them that I actually find somewhat enjoyable, including "Twisted Metal" and "Sly Cooper"), and I'm just starting to get into Microsoft's game systems after giving the Xbox 360 a chance not too long ago. Ever since I was young, I've been getting into a lot of awesome game series that I remember being out a long time, although I was never able to play all the games that came out when I was a kid until I was able to buy many of them as I got older. As you would probably guess, a lot of the video games that I've enjoyed playing are the old-school titles that have been around as long as I have. I was able to beat many of those games that I've played and/or owned for a while now, which is something that every gamer is usually proud of.

However, there are a few game series and/or game titles that I've never actually been able to complete on my own, which I feel like wanting to discuss to anybody who's interested. For example, the only game of the "Castlevania" series that I've ever beaten so far is the very first one originally released on the NES; I understand that it is one of the most challenging game series that Konami has ever made (as well as "Contra", since I have yet to beat any of the games from that series on my own), and I feel like I should try to beat all the other games in the series just to prove how good I am, especially after hearing my friend :iconshinragod: tell me that he was able to beat "Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse" on the NES, which kind of surprises me because of it being one of the most challenging games in the series to beat on a single setting (even though you can use passwords to continue your game). Ironic as this may also sound, I've never actually been able to beat "The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time" on the Nintendo 64, and that's only because I've never quite enjoyed playing the 3D Zelda games as much as I have the 2D Zelda games for some reason, even though I was able to give the game a chance after so many years, which I was able to play on my Nintendo Wii after downloading it via Wii Shop Channel.

Even though these are just a few of the games I can think of that I've never been able to beat on my own, the games that I tend to be really good at playing are the action platformers, which is what I find myself hooked on each time I play video games. Despite how most video games are played nowadays, there are a lot of great video game series that happen to be part of this particular genre, including Mario, Sonic, and Mega Man; I've also enjoyed playing the Metroid games, especially after I was able to beat the SNES classic "Super Metroid" not too long ago (although I wasn't able to beat it 'perfectly' for the first time, since it was much longer than I expected it to be). Whenever I play the Pokemon games, I usually just focus on completing the main story for each game without having to worry about catching every single Pokemon known in the series and/or training my Pokemon to battle other people around the world, although I wouldn't actually mind being able to play with some of my friends via Wi-Fi.

After giving some thought about some of these video games that I've mentioned, I've come to realize that I'm not exactly a 'hardcore' gamer like I've always thought I was, and that I'm more of a 'casual' gamer because of the way I play video games all the time. Even though there's always going to be someone who's always been great at playing certain games a lot better than me, I don't want to let such an idea get to me in any way, especially if I'm just trying to be like everyone else who enjoys video games about as much as I do. If you completely understand how I feel, then please feel free to share your thoughts as well.

I am posting this journal entry to let everyone know that I am actually taking a break from posting newer artwork on deviantART for this week. If you were able to read my previous journal entry, you would probably know about me dealing with an art block not too long ago, and I think I should focus on my newer artwork that I'm currently working on. I seem to have gotten over my art block for now, since I now feel like wanting to draw more fan art pictures involving my favorite comic book series "Usagi Yojimbo", including a point commission for my good friend :iconmintymousyxfce:. I am also working on a little something that I might be able to post on here by the end of week. In the meantime, I am still able to accept point commissions for anyone else who is interested, especially if I'm unable to think of anything new to draw on my own.

I am posting this quick journal entry to let my friends and everyone else know how I've been feeling lately since my last journal entry on here. As you may have probably noticed, I've been taking quite a few breaks from posting my newer artwork on here so that I can focus on completing the rest of my artwork that needs to be done. Unfortunately, I've just been dealing with a bad case of art block not too long ago, which has been greatly affecting my mood to draw pictures on a regular basis. One of my newer sets of pictures that I'm kind of in the mood for drawing now involves Whitnee Squirrel posing as a pirate captain with a few other original characters being pirates as well. Whenever I try to focus on getting any of my pictures drawn, though, I somehow end up feeling rather different, as if I'm beginning to lose inspiration for my cartoon artwork. I don't know why I've been feeling like this lately, but I certainly hope that I'll be able to get through this unusual feeling by the end of the weekend. Because I have a bunch of other pictures that I need to draw and/or color in as soon as possible, I'm actually thinking of taking a week off from posting newer artwork on dA soon (while being able to check my messages regularly, of course). If anyone on here has any suggestions of how I can easily overcome my art block and feel inspired to draw once again, I would really appreciate it nonetheless.

Here is a little something I did called 'MyWeekThroughArt', which involves posting random pictures onto my journal entry explaining what I was able to do with my week so far. And so, here are some pictures I found involving some things I did with my life all week. Enjoy!

I've been working on so many pictures lately that I feel like posting a journal entry to explain what I'm able to draw so far. After working on a couple of birthday pictures for my friends' whose birthdays are this month, I have decided to get to work on a newer set of pictures for some very special days that happen this month as well, including Fathers' Day (which is on June 16), Garfield's birthday (which is on June 19), and Sonic's birthday (which is on June 23). After completing these pictures not too long ago, I am now in the middle of drawing some summer-themed pictures that involve my original characters, including one that I need to get done in time for Independence Day this year. However, despite all these pictures I'm currently working on, I still have a bunch of other pictures that I've done as point commissions and/or art trades are needed to be posted on here before I forget, and a few others that I haven't been able to work on yet. People that I owe pictures that I need to complete whenever I can include:

:iconwolf492: - Any art trade pictures done in the past that I haven't posted on here yet. (Completed)
:iconkbafourthtime: - Salome Roberts looking at a pair of high-heeled shoes. (Completed)
:iconpawsnfurs: - Lola Bunny and Berri showing off their sexy feet. (Completed)
:iconbrandonthebunny: - Whitnee Squirrel, Goldie Fox, and Amber Chipmunk hanging upside down on a rope by their feet while over a giant pie. (Working On)
:iconstockings300: - Berry The Sock Girl stuffing the bottom half of her torso with socks. (Working On)
:iconwolfn85: - Illustrations for new story ideas. (Working On)

It may seem kind of hectic for a guy like me having so many pictures that are needed to be done as soon as possible, but I don't really like to break any promises to those I consider my friends on here, so I should at least be able to get my artwork done at my own pace without having to worry so much. In case anybody is wondering, I am still accepting point commissions for anyone who is interested, although I'm still considering of opening a PayPal account soon enough.

I am posting this quick journal entry to explain a little more about some of my original characters after being able to post one of my newer pictures recently, so that everyone can get to know them better in some of the other pictures I'll be posting of them in the near future. Skyler Fox is the youngest brother of Goldie Fox; He is a nine-year-old fox boy who has a case of autism, which makes him incredibly shy around everyone and doesn't speak much as a result. Sandra Panda is a nine-year-old panda girl whose family had just moved into Skyler's hometown, and she has become his best friend ever since they met at school. Now, as you may already know after reading "Goldie's Story", Skyler had become greatly affected by the loss of his mother when he was younger, which is probably why he's become so quiet and shy. It wasn't until he met Sandra one day at school, who treated Skyler very nicely after seeing how lonely he was being by himself. After being able to understand a little about Skyler's mental condition, Sandra has become one of Skyler's closest friends who always spends time with him so that he won't feel lonely anymore. Even though I haven't drawn Skyler and Sandra in a while, I still think they're very nice and appealing for a couple of young characters I've created, and I certainly hope that everyone else will agree.

Yesterday, I was able to spend the day with my sister and her boyfriend at Holiday World and Splashin' Safari, which is a theme park and water park located in Santa Claus, Indiana (which is about 20 miles away from my hometown). We originally planned on going out Saturday, but it was practically raining throughout most of the day, so we had to postpone our trip until the next day, in which the weather turned out very nice and pleasant. The park wasn't completely packed when we arrived, and I was able to ride on just about every ride in the park, including the tallest roller coaster called 'The Voyage', which I was able to ride twice that day. After going on quite a few rides, we ate some pizza at a restaurant in Holiday World called Kringle's Kafe for lunch, and then we headed off to Splashin' Safari after eating. While there, I was able to go on both of the water coasters in the park with my sister and her boyfriend: 'The Wildebeest' (which was actually featured in an episode of the TLC series "Bert The Conquer") and 'The Mammoth'. I really enjoyed going on both of those slides, and we decided to go on a bowl-shaped slide called 'The Bakuli' afterwards. As we were sliding towards the bottom of the slide, however, I accidentally fell out of the raft after we made it to the bottom at the pool; My glasses were practically submerged in the floor of the pool until someone helped me fish them out and I ended up scrapping my right arm, which was bleeding a little until someone at the first aid center applied a couple of bandages on where I was hurt (I didn't actually feel much pain when it happened, BTW). Despite the incident, I was still able to spend the rest of my day in Holiday World, where I bought myself some fried Oreos to snack on, and I also bought a new cap at one of the gift shops before we left. I guess you can say that I had such a wonderful time at both parks, and I'm hoping that I'll be able to go back again this year.

I am posting this journal entry to let everyone know that I am doing fine after not being able to log onto dA the past couple of days. The reason I haven't been able to check my messages and/or post my newer pictures recently is because my computer has been acting a little buggy not too long ago. The main cause of the problem happens to be the CPU fan inside my computer not working properly; Without a working fan, the computer will heat up and occasionally shut down on its own without warning, which is exactly what has been happening to me lately. I assumed that the fan was acting strange because it needed to be cleaned, so I was able to take the computer to a local shop to get it cleaned. But even after the fan was cleaned, the fan still wouldn't work properly and I had to get a new one to replace it. However, the shop I went to did not have any of the fans that were needed for my computer, so the only way to get a new one was to go to place where my mother bought the computer, which is located in the far part of another town outside of my hometown. Because I had no way to go there to get a replacement fan (especially if it might take a few days or more to have it ordered and picked up), I was suggested by the shop owner to use a small desk fan as an alternative way of cooling off the inside of the computer, which I'm actually able to use for now. I feel really bad about not being able to post some of the pictures that I originally planned to post for my friends, and I wasn't able to color in any of the pictures that I had scanned onto my computer as well. I actually plan on drawing a couple of birthday pictures for some of my friends whose birthdays are in June (as well as some other pictures for certain days like Fathers' Day), and I feel like I need as much time as possible to get them done soon enough.

I am posting this journal entry to let all my friends and watchers know that I might not be able to accept point commissions anymore. I am actually thinking of doing commissions for cash instead of dA points, since I feel like I should earn some money for my cartoon artwork that I post on here each day. To tell you the truth, I don't really know what dA points are actually used for, but I've been using them mainly to pay for commissions by other artists on the site. And so, I am now thinking of opening a PayPal account for myself so I can accept the cash needed for any commissions that I'll be able to work on in the future. Of course, I still have all the other pictures I've recently done as point commissions that I need to post on here soon, and I might actually work on a few point commissions and/or art trades if I have the time. In the meantime, though, I will be doing point commissions for anyone else who is interested.

Have you ever had one of those moments where you hear a catchy tune and end up having it stuck in your head for a while? Well, that's actually what happened to me not too long ago, and I think I should tell everyone about it. Just last Saturday, I received a copy of the video game "Darkwing Duck" for the NES that I had recently ordered in the mail, which I started to play for a while now, and I think I'll give a review for it in another time. Anyway, I was able to play through the stage where you fought one of Darkwing's arch-enemies, Bushroot, and I ended up getting the level theme stuck in my head after hearing it for the first time. Even though all the other level themes in the game are really nice and catchy, I found this particular one to be quite rhythmic with a sense of adventure and action to it. I can't seem to stop hearing it, and I sometimes find myself playing the game just to hear it again. I'm pretty sure this phase I'm starting to go through is only temporary, but I'm also curious to know if any of my friends have also had anything like this happen to them before.

Because I haven't been able to check my messages yesterday after participating in an internet blackout with some of my friends on here, I am posting this journal entry about some of the pictures I am currently working on. Not too long ago, I've been in the mood for drawing sexy anthro versions of Pokemon characters after checking out all kinds of artwork involving them. And so, I was able to go ahead and create my own anthro Pokemon characters that everyone is sure to love. For my very first set of pictures that I've started drawing recently, I have decided to start off with the cute electric rodent Pokemon that practically everyone knows and loves, which include:

:pokeball: Pikachu
:pokeball: Raichu
:pokeball: Pichu
:pokeball: Plusle
:pokeball: Minun
:pokeball: Pachirisu
:pokeball: Emolga

I'm able to draw the characters in my original cartoon style while having them wear outfits that would look nice on them and giving them proper hairstyles. As for the names of the anthro Pokemon characters, I haven't decided which names would suit each character, but I'm thinking of wanting to use names that match the first letter of each Pokemon name (like 'Patricia' for Pachirisu and 'Emily' for Emolga). If anyone else could help me think up some names that would suit my characters, I would really appreciate it as well. After I get done with this first set of pictures involving these anthro Pokemon characters completed, I just might be willing to create more anthro versions of Pokemon characters in the near future.

After watching some videos on YouTube recently, I feel like talking about a series of game review videos that tend to irk me a little (and I think a bunch of other gamers who read this journal entry will probably agree with me as well). I'm talking about "The Irate Gamer", which is a game review video series that's almost similar to the ever-popular "Angry Video Game Nerd" series, which I actually love to watch dozens of times on YouTube. Unlike the Angry Video Game Nerd, however, The Irate Gamer isn't entirely truthful whenever he reviews certain games, even though he tries to make each episode humorous. Even though some of the games featured in each episode were also reviewed by the Angry Video Game Nerd (such as the NES version of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", "Ghosts N' Goblins", and "Jaws"), there were also some episodes for games that are actually much better to play than how they were reviewed, including "The Goonies II" on the NES and "Disney's Aladdin" on the SNES. Not all of these videos are bad, though, but the episode that really disappointed me the most would be The Irate Gamer's review of one of my favorite Mario games of all time: "Super Mario Bros. 2". I understand that some people didn't like this game because it was slightly different from the other Mario games in terms of gameplay, but I really enjoyed this game ever since I was a kid, and I have plenty of reasons to like it as well. In the video review for this game, The Irate Gamer claimed that Toad was the only playable character that did not have any special skills and abilities, but of course, that is absolutely wrong; Everyone who's played this game actually knows that Toad is the character who can move very fast on foot and he can also pick up items and enemies a lot quicker than the others. He obviously didn't play the game enough to actually enjoy it, and that's kind of a shame because I think it's an underrated classic worth owning on the NES. Despite what I think of The Irate Gamer, this is basically my opinion of something on my mind, and I feel like wanting to share with anyone else who is interested.

I just want to say that I am very sorry for the way I overreacted in my journal entry that I posted on here yesterday. I feel really bad if I upset anyone with whatever has been troubling me, and I hope that it doesn't happen again too often. I don't know why I've been feeling so emotional lately, but I've been trying very hard not to let it get to me in any way. I guess I've been feeling this way because I'm starting to feel kinda lonely nowadays, since I have nobody (other than my own family) to talk to whenever I have something on my mind. I figured that receiving a certain number of comments from my friends about my artwork would help me get through, since it makes me feel a little more appreciated than I already am. But after getting some responses from my friends regarding my previous journal entry, I've come to realize that the way I've been acting was completely immature as well as unnecessary, and I am really sorry for any trouble that I may have caused. Please keep in mind that I'm not trying to sound controlling and/or demanding in any way; It's just that I really like to keep in touch with my friends as much as possible, and I guess you can say that I'm actually worried about my friends not being by my side when I really need them. If I'm going to start feeling better from now on, I should at least try to remember that it doesn't matter how many comments I receive for my artwork, and what really matters most is just knowing that I have friends who are always supportive of me for being myself, and that they'll continue to like me as long as I'm able to show my appreciation.

I am posting this journal entry to let everyone know about the newer kinds of artwork that I am currently working on. First of all, I would just like to thank everyone on here for being able to check out the pictures of my new Sonic fan character, Abby The Squirrel, since she happens to be one of my first attempts at creating a fan character of my own after giving them a chance for quite a while now. Because everyone seems to like her plenty, I am actually planning on drawing more pictures involving her whenever I can. The pictures I am currently working on are mainly point commissions and/or trades that I'm trying to get done as soon as possible, but I also have a few original ideas that I want to draw while they're still fresh on my mind, including a few pictures of Whitnee Squirrel getting her feet tickled in a few creative ways as well as some pictures of my good friend MajikkuMausuII's original characters, Amanda and Rachel, that I've decided to work on after drawing them in my original cartoon style for the first time. I guess you can say that I've actually been in the mood for drawing some of my friends' original characters so I can show my deep appreciation for them, and that they'll continue to support me as my friends till the end of time. I'm also in the mood for doing a set of pictures involving Tomoe Ame from "Usagi Yojimbo", since she is one of the characters in the comics that I tend to admire a lot (especially when she's with Usagi, and I think they would make a great couple as well). One more thing, I'm thinking of drawing some more comic strips like I did about a year ago; In fact, one of the commissions/trades I need to work on is a comic strip, but I don't think it would hurt to do another set of "Whitnee The Maid" comics once I get around to thinking of gags for each strip. Despite how much work it would take to get everything done, I find it to be a good way to keep myself busy one way or another, and I should also be glad to admit that I have many friends who are always willing to support me no matter what.
:thanks:
