Hey, all of you artists out there draw some awesome things out there! So Eventually I'm going to fav some of your art work! ^^

I may of fave'd your art because I like how its drawn, or of its humor got to me in a certain way or there's an appeal to it that I like, even to art that makes a statement... and yes <_< Even if it features my characters XD! but yeah! You may find your artwork in here!
  • Listening to: Daft Punk
  • Playing: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Drinking: Ice water
 I've been here, how many years? Going on to 13 years? Yeah.

I posted my artwork, stopped doing a certain kind of style of artwork, remained diligent here in trying to post at least once a month with my desktop background of the month being shown before I post stuff again, which I've been doing for as long as I can remember.

but lately, I feel like being here is more of a burden and a curse than it is fun and interactive.

Granted, I've met some pretty good friends here that I've made when I was still new to Deviant Art and still are friends with today. I've found some amazing artists who draw amazing works, from illustrations to comics with good stories or gags.

I feel like those days are long gone. It's rare that I find anything good here anymore. I feel like I'm just here to feed someone's fetish that I don't even do on here anymore. That's pretty much it.

There are some of you who are on DA that follow me that are decent, but I feel like people have migrated elsewhere or closed their accounts and moved on. I do feel like I'm alone, now that some of my friends moved to another art publishing website, which I have done too, and I feel more at home there than here.

I just sometimes feel like I should close my account and just find a new place to post artwork that isn't so cringey.

I'm not going to close my account though. I'm still going to post stuff... so just how I am normally have been posting here and there. I hardly check DA anymore, save to read a comic I've been reading which is nearing it's conclusion, so I feel like there isn't a point of me being here sometimes.

I don't even get in character here anymore. I just see him as a character I've created that is more or less of my mascot here.

I still am going to post... but if it REALLY comes down to it, I'm going to close my account that I've had since October of 2004.

I probably am just rambling by now, but I've been feeling like this for a very long time.

I don't even care if I get comments or not. I just wanted to get it off my chest...

Thanks for reading

I'm going to go play Breath of the Wild

So.... Who am I? Why, I'm Dobie! I'm an art student from San Jose, CA and I love to draw!

I usually draw characters of my friends and of my own characters as well, both fan made and originally created. I also draw pokemon stuff and other fan art too.

I have been trying to draw more fan art aside from pokemon like Nintendo, Disney and caricatures of famous people and maybe drawing them as pokemon. I do mostly digital art, but I do other medias here and there like painting. and I'm trying to explore different styles of art.

My Influences are Walt Disney, Tim Burton, Kingdom Hearts, Nintendo stuff, some of the people here on DA, some types of architecture, Music and among others that influence my art.

But wait, who is that blue gryphon you see hanging around in my DA page and galleries and such? That's just Dobie Takahama! He's the character that represents me online. I do not really consider him "Furry" I see it as he's a character much like Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny. Do we consider Mickey and Bugs as furry characters? Well, I certainly don't!

I'm a big Nintendo fan, especially Mario, Pokemon and The Legend of Zelda series! I've been a fan of the big N ever since I could pick up a controller and developed enough coordination to play the games. I am a Loyal fan and will continue to be a loyal fan, so there!

I also like Disney stuff too! I grew up watching Disney Movies and watching some of the cartoons on Dsney channel, back when they showed that stuff. and I do like Disneyland too! Walt Disney is basically one of my idols and I do love to read about him as well as watch him when he was doing presentations.

As far as characters go, Stitch from Disney's Lilo and Stitch, is my favorite character. But I also Like Homer Simpson, Mario, Jake the Dog and Louis the Alligator from Disney's Princess and the frog.

Did I mention I like pokemon and my favorite pokemon are Swampert, Typhlosion and Floatzel? No? Well, now you know!

I love music too, The Beatles are my favorite band, but I also like others such as Earth,Wind and Fire, Michael Jackson and even musical composers like Danny Elfman. I'm trying to experiment with different bands or musicians as well, so far, Nirvana has me interested... . My favorite Genre? If I like it, I like it, but I don't like Rap or Country though.

I guess that's all you need to know for now...

Oh yeah, and I like chubby cartoon characters <_<;;; soooo... expect to see some chubbiness in my gallery yeah... I dunno, I just find chubby cartoons characters cute and appealing. So I do have some chubby characters... Hey, if you don't like it you could always check someone else's DA page. I do draw chub.. but I'm not like those "OMG maek him planet sized!!!!11!!!" people who draw chub.. I have a limit, y'know! So if Chub isn't your thing, I suggest you go elsewhere, Thanks much! =)

Anyways, Enjoy what you see! =)

And the following used to be in its own section!

Current Residence: San Jose, CA
Favorite genre of music: 60s and 70s (Usually), Soul, Dance music and No Country or Rap, except Weird Al Rap.
Favorite photographer: I dunno o_o but I take random and candid pictures.
Favorite style of art: Disney animation new and old, CGI, Retro 50 and 60's styles
Operating System: Windows Vista (Its a Lappy.. I really need a new one)
MP3 player of choice: Zune HD... Touch Screen! =D
Shell of choice: A choice between a Koopa or a Squritle shell maybe even a Blastoise shell!
Wallpaper of choice: Anything I like that I can make into a wallpaper... or DLing it <_<
Skin of choice: Uhm... Yellow matter custard dripping from a dead dog's eye?
Favorite cartoon character: Swampert, Stitch, Homer Simpson, Louis the alligator, Perry the Platypus, Oswald The Lucky Rabbit & more!
Personal Quote: Before you Judge, Try hard to Love

Hey Dobie. I'm sure you remember me from when we chatted on one of you streams. It's just... Do you mind if we just have a normal chat? (Do you want it to be in notes? Because I'm fine if it is.)
Dobie-Takahama Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2017  Student Digital Artist
Hey, sorry for the delay. I don't check DA too often.

Sorry, but I've got too much on my plate still.

Btw, if you have to ask, please send it in a note.

Thanks, though!
