wanted to hop on the bandwagon!

soooo hello! my name is Miles, but i'm also known as Cobalt or Cobalt-cat, and in some instances, dynamite_factory.
i'm 15 and i'm in year 11 at school (but yr 12 for english), and my birthday is may 30.
i've been on NDA since 2009, and although sometimes i disappear for a few days or weeks, i'm always frequenting =w=
my music tastes are pretty eclectic, and really if the song is good, it doesn't matter too much on the style; but i am pretty partial to rock, metal, and blues rock. my all-time favourite bands include: Queen, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, The Pillows, The Shins and Avenged Sevenfold.

i was born and raised in Sydney, Australia, and sometimes i go to Darling Harbour just to look at the scenery that was featured in Finding Nemo =w=
i am half-argentinean though, and i lived and went to school in Spain for quite some time -- but i don't speak spanish very fluently at all. i also speak a bit of japanese and am currently in my fourth year of doing it at school.
i travel A LOT because my mum gets invited to speak at conferences all around the world, and i've been to over 7 countries in my lifetime. one day i hope to visit the states again to meet all my internet friends =w=

i've never been in a relationship, but i'm married to black-bat and she's my super best friend ever.

i can't stand bullying or unfairness of any kind, and i'm passionate about equality in all respects. i've started more than a few fights just defending people at school for their sexual orientation, race, gender, etc; because i believe nobody should be ashamed or bullied because of who they are. bullies apparently don't think the same way.

okay, characters!
*Mailee (say may-lee) was only created a few days ago, but she's becoming a fast favourite. she's a fashionable bear who likes polka dots and wrestling.
*Cobalt is my fursona, and i draw him probably the most out of all my characters.
*Reginald (better known as Reggie) is most likely my most fleshed-out character. he is the fabulous make-up artist for Le Cirque D'Obscure ( [link] (you should join, lovelylonely created this incredible place!)), and he is basically a big sweetheart.
*Anachi is my second ever character, and even though she's a bit of a grump she's the most emotional of all my characters.
*Mattie is my kawaii princess. basically i use her to model cuteness =w=
*Quaver Brush (even though i'm still undecided on that name) is my pony-sona.
*Adeline is my Anizion ( [link] ) character, and she's pretty cool! her power is that she can mimic voices and powers, though she can't do powers to the full extent of the wielder.

so that's it for me! sorry this post got so long ^^; also feel free to talk to me or whatever. i'm always happy to make new friends =w=

[anon]prysm-loggedout 2013/2/26 - 7:20:39
Mailee is an interesting character. Made me chuckle at your short description of her
lemon-macaw [Profile] 2013/2/26 - 16:7:49
i love how expressive all of them are asdjdls ;v; you and your characters are absolute cutie pies <33
missscythe [Profile] 2013/2/26 - 22:46:10
fuuuu Sydney is like my favourtie place of all time, I hope I can live there/close to there when I'm older! I mean it's only 3 hours away from home but freaking money for petrol and things waaah </3
Every time I go to Darling Harbour it's just the most beautiful thing in the world I always want to stay there foreverlheljhelfgrgrfgkl
anyway I love you and your characters so much, your oultlook on bullying and such is the bestest thing ever. And I have to draw Cobalt at some point ;w;
[anon]miles 2013/2/27 - 0:39:21
prysm> thanks!
lemon> sdfkjh thank you so much ;w; you are way too nice to me!
amber> afhhh i know how you feel... i mean i'm not ~too~ far away but srsly $4.20 for a return train ticket just to circular quay is far too much.
i know huh!! not long ago we went to the rocks for a history excursion, and we had about 2 hrs to spare because we were early, so we went to the opera house and took photos as if we were tourists =w= it's a great place. we should go together one day.
and thank you so much! and you don't have to draw him really! but that's seriously kind of you!
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/2/27 - 6:19:38
I love all the personality conveyed by these characters. They are all so adorable! And you have a way way with clothing.
catgirl [Profile] 2013/2/27 - 10:19:5
Oh, wow, there's a few I didn't know here. O.O
missscythe [Profile] 2013/2/27 - 22:43:56
Hehehe I totally agree, and yesyes we definitely should!
Well to be honest I would love to draw him at some point! :333 As long as it's okay with you, of course n~n
miles [Profile] 2013/2/28 - 1:35:29
dreya> ahhdf thank you!
catgirl> i have heaps more than just these ^^; but i don't draw all of them because i'm a biased creator and i like some more than others.
amber> yeah totally!! that would be an awesome day out =w= maybe during the holidays some time.. who knows.
ah that's totally okay with me..... thank you!

Great work with the color. I like the style, especially on her, looks great together.

This is a character from my story and apparently he happens to be a great poser. Hope you like him.

infernowolf [Profile] 2013/2/26 - 1:4:14
Beautiful! :D The lighting is so subtle, but so effective. Awesome work!
[anon]miles 2013/2/26 - 12:22:8
this is just incredible :D
i agree, that backlighting is brilliant, and your shading is fantastic as well. i really really love this.
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/2/26 - 14:55:26
Thank you!!! Its really hard to make him stand out with a dark background since he is also black. But I did actually have a lot of fun doing the background :)

floodcontrol [Profile] 2013/2/24 - 13:28:38
Hopefully, someday, I will be able to look back and laugh about how terrible this looks.
As you can see, portraits are outside my comfort zone. :(

imagamaker [Profile] 2013/2/25 - 14:53:50
This is actually pretty good. The shading is quite nice.
Here's some crit; you dont have to read this if you dont want to.

For crits, I would say that the eyebrows are a bit thick, and the eyes look a bit small, maybe if you enlarged the irises and the pupils a bit? The lips are also a bit thick, but I dunno, maybe she just has big lips :) What's also thick is the neck. The hair looks like it is hiding half of it to me. The pencil tool looks just fine, but it looks unattural if you use it thinly. I like how you used it for the hair, though. The pen tool maybe should be used for shading, but using the pencil looks nice and crisp to me, so you dont have to. I dunno if this is harsh or not, but you dont have to listen to me, you're coming along fine :)
floodcontrol [Profile] 2013/2/25 - 19:3:11
Thanks Imagamaker. Loved the critique and I'd have to agree with you. For some reason it did turn out sort of weird. I guess a lot of the problems are because I drew it from imagination when I should really be using photo references.
It looked a lot better when I sketched it out on paper.
Maybe i'll get a deviant art and upload it or something.
floodcontrol [Profile] 2013/2/25 - 20:59:40
Here is the sketch [link]
maybe part of the problem stems from not being familiar with oekaki (or digital art in general.)
[anon]miles 2013/2/27 - 0:47:30
references are always the way to go!! remember to always draw from what you see, not from what you think it should look like.
i reckon the nose is a little off, though -- i think it's mostly the nostrils. from the angle of the face you've drawn, the nostrils and ball of the nose make it look like it's pointing upwards as if you're looking at it from below.
[link] < this is a good reference for this kind of angle. though it's not the clearest of pics, it's easy to see how the shadows define the nose and where the nostrils are covered by the rest of the nose.
um aside from that, i reckon the lips are just a bit lopsided and the top is rather pointy, but otherwise this is looking good! keep up the great work.

If I'm the bad guy, then give up pointing out my faults. I'm not going to change. Not for you, or anyone.

infernowolf [Profile] 2013/2/26 - 3:38:57
Love your shading here :) Your color palette in general is pretty wonderful :)
[anon]miles 2013/2/27 - 0:48:1
i agree, this is awesome! i love how striking that eye is compared to the dull colours elsewhere.

wolven [Profile] 2013/2/24 - 7:12:42
Okaaaay. OC mixer entry right here. Head-hair, skintone belong to Cane. Jaw, eyes and arms belong to Daedrid. The wings and fangs belong to Rose, whilst the legs, tail and general anatomy belong to William in beast form.

Um... I will call this a 'Prowler.' using high pitched shrieks etc. (Rose and Daedrid) they navigate through dark places, usually caverns. They rarely come out to see the world above. When not in flight, they crawl through webworks of caverns using their feeler-like hands. They are purely carnivorous and often cannibalistic. They are weakened by sunlight however, as well as silver and holy water. Their silyva can burn through most anything.

C&C appreciated. and yes, i rushed the BG so dont bother with that please.

[anon]miles 2013/2/27 - 0:48:34
haha, this is pretty awesome! i can totally see all your characters here. i really love those fingers.
catgirl [Profile] 2013/2/27 - 6:36:27
This is creepy. O.O Haha, I saw it in escrow, recognized Caine and Daedrid's features, briefly forgot about the contest and wondered just *what* was going on. :D

Nice work combining them.

His lower legs (knee to ankle) look all skin and bones, I keep looking for a round, tight calf muscle.

This is not his aging (he didn't go from white to black >_>) but just showing how he's developed over the years. My OCs tend to mature with me. While I do enjoy my blue-haired muffin lord, he's not what I want for the character, though I may still end up drawing him that way just for the funsies. The last one is still a work in progress, as I'm still trying to discover what I want out of this character, but I'm trying to get across that he's a prince, and trying to make him more typical of what people of his breed (dragons) would look like. Obviously I wasn't focusing on anatomy, just trying to get down general body mass and color difference.

I really wish I just had someone to design outfits for me. I'm so terrible at it.

arya [Profile] 2013/2/25 - 15:57:32
I WOULD LOVE TO DESIGN OUTFITS FOR YOU :D lol sorry im trying to become a fashion designer

inu112 [Profile] 2013/2/25 - 16:27:10
That would be lovely. :D My OCs always wear crappy generic things because I have no creativity whatsoever.
[anon]arya_not_logged_in 2013/2/26 - 5:38:31
would you like outfits for all three stages? or just a specific one? and do you think you can describe the personality? thats usually how i make things.
inu112 [Profile] 2013/2/26 - 9:45:26
would you mind emailing me? It's in my profile.
[anon]miles 2013/2/27 - 0:51:42
i have so much trouble with outfits too o x o; what i do is keep a folder called "clothing", so whenever i come across an item of clothing i think looks nice, i save it for future reference =w= there are some really great things on tumblr if you want to search there. otherwise i am sure there are websites devoted to clothing design...

anyway, i've always loved your muffin lord! maybe it's because i drew him for you in that secret santa. i really love the clothing folds and anatomy here... there is such great emotion and your poses are so natural. i am also really digging middle muffin lord's face. the angle is just great.
arya [Profile] 2013/3/4 - 5:20:3

It started as just a pair of lips but keep becoming more and more like the lips from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Oh well.

infernowolf [Profile] 2013/2/24 - 2:10:4
Hey, there's nothing wrong with that, though! I love Rocky Horror Picture Show haha xD

Love the detail on the lips :) Very realistic!
floodcontrol [Profile] 2013/2/24 - 4:17:55

dreyacira [Profile] 2013/2/24 - 8:10:18
Those lips look amazing! So much color to them. I like the teeth as well.
[anon]miles 2013/2/27 - 0:52:27
i agree with the others, i reckon this is amazing! i really love your shading.
[anon]nerinserene 2013/4/30 - 5:11:56
this just SCREAMS Frankenfurter * v * I absolutely ADOREthe details on the lips and teeth!!!
My only critique is the bottom layer of teeth. They seem a bit crooked and out of place....

tayuyaxn [Profile] 2013/2/23 - 22:26:18
Hi. Following Lovely's example...
So my name is Tayuyaxn. I'm a francophone from Québec.
I'm a 22 years old guy, who's hobby is drawing. I'm in a relationship.
I'm a Virgo, and the most fabulous of them all.
I'm a Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson maniac and a music enthusiast.
I'm also a video game enthusiast/dork - cue boom chicken casting moonfire.
I don't like the question "How do you feel?" and I don't like debating beliefs.

I've been periodically on NDA since 2004.
You probably won't see as much of me as before, since I'm using another program now. Here's a hymn to those that disappear.

I have one avatar/sona, which is pretty much what's in the mirror, with fluid characteristics (eyes, wings, halo, bone arm, etc.) that depend on what I felt like ''representing myself'' today. Commonly nicknamed ''Bones'' because of the bone hand/arm that is (less so now) my trademark - could be a joke, could be a statement.

I also occasionally run around as a dark grey fallen angel with 6 black wings, 3 tails and a giant spoon, riding through space on a giant Dreya-feather-dragon made of wings, with a hairbrush tail and spine forks. That dragon styles hair like nobody else.

And as of recently, also as a black pegasus pony named Légion.

I have few OCs, the most important of them right now being Jared and Jens Skjerven-Dalhen, scandinavian 98% human fraternal twins who are always together. Those two are very dear to me.

That's it. Also, the timer is off on that thing, I'm distracted tonight.

tayuyaxn [Profile] 2013/2/23 - 22:37:4
**by ''beliefs'' I mostly mean religion and things surrounding it. Otherwise I like a good debate about anything else as long as it's done in a respectuous manner.
tayuyaxn [Profile] 2013/2/24 - 9:7:6
... I think if you reposted your comment and the one above there was deleted, it would make browsing much easier. ^^' But thank you - also, that shirt is ''Raven that Refused to Sing'' album from Steven Wilson.

A self portrait of Chaos.

I havent drawn her yet so i figure now was a good time to draw her.

she is one of my characters in 'Lucky 13' and besides Lucky she is the last of her race.

I'm still deciding on whether to change her wings to angel wings or keep her demon wings. Because The Evil Treyssem have bat wings and the good have feathered.

Maybe she will turn good?... just so you know she is the Bad guy's (well girl's) protector like Lucky is to Hayley.

And Lucky has a little bit of a "dangerous" crush on her.

Let me know what you think of her and if her wings should be changed.

I will make a portrait of Lucky eventually.

[anon]labyrinth 2013/2/22 - 21:14:7
You're so good at drawing cats! I absolutely love the background, how it kinda pixilated and fades. Just beautiful.
Maybe when she turns good her wings will change? If her wings are angelic the whole time, it could raise people's suspicions. Bat wings look really good on her though!
dynasty_dragon [Profile] 2013/2/23 - 0:35:21
Wow, you have really improved. I think she looks great!! And the demon wings really suit her, unless you have black feathered wings. I love how's you've drawn her face in particular!
infernowolf [Profile] 2013/2/24 - 23:40:25
Love the eye and the way you drew the stripes :)
youngb15 [Profile] 2013/2/25 - 8:34:11
This is so awesome it looks almost like a real tiger
my only question is the other ear not glowing like the other one
heather [Profile] 2013/3/1 - 18:48:57
Her ear is facing the opposite way, its twisted side ways, showing the back of her ear.

And thanks everyone for the likes.

"Everything falls apart; even the people who never frown eventually break down..."- Linkin Park

My version of what would (eventually) happen if Discord won. Pinkie Pie sits alone at the edge of the blueberry flavoured sea, remembering the good times she had before the fall of the two Princesses; none of her friends want to party nowadays. In fact, they're not even her friends anymore, not since they were corrupted into twisted, cruel parodies of themselves. And eternal chaos wasn't as fun as it was for the first few years, not since Discord started running out of ideas. She alone remains sane in a vast asylum, a plaything for the Chaos god, as the world grinds to halt around her.

catgirl [Profile] 2013/2/22 - 10:12:5
Wow. :(

Good job with it.
