Newest Deviations

Here is a thumbnail listing of the ten newest deviations that I submitted.

Click on Browse Gallery to view the older submissions.

DISCLAIMER: The drawings of my Mechapuff characters were done by other deviant artists that I love and were rightfully submitted on my account with proper permission.

You are welcome to comment and/or fav the drawings that you see here, but please DO NOT file a Policy Violation report for this matter as proper permission has already been obtained.

Random Favourites

Here's a thumbnail list of the four random submissions that I added as a favourite since February 2006.

I have rights to fav as many deviations that I can come across and as long as it is in self-moderation. This is the case, because I really love all of the illustrations that deviants have created over the years and I strongly appreciate all of their hard work and effort that they created.

Please DO NOT complain to me about fav-whoring and mass-faving for whatever reason. I don't appreciate it. If you have a problem with that, please take it to notes and refrain from being hostile or the notes will go ignored.

Thank you for understanding!



Here are the recent critiques that I have made so far.

The critiques given out are thoughtful and are only targeted to drawings where as deviants have put a lot of hard work and effort on their art. The critiques are selected on a case-by-case basis.

Most of the critiques that I made have been accepted by the original artist. I never intent to give more than two critiques per deviant and not give a rating of no less than four stars.

I mean Unity's grown up, evolved, and matured a lot since its inception in Natty, and it's actually supposed to be a decent desktop now. :)

Hiya! Definitely giving Ubuntu Unity a shot in a couple years when I'm (hopefully) able to get a half-decent PC.

~NaesCadence Thank you so much! :huggle: If I had enough points, it would be awesome to do Mechapuff R4 too as well. But in order to do that, I will have to earn points.

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch!
Grinch by comino69
Grinch icon (c) 2006 by comino69

You probably heard by now, but this "Grinch" idea goes all the way back to late 1957 called How the Grinch Stole Christmas! that was a children's story by Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel (1904-1991).

This idea was originally published as a book by Random House and at approximately the same time in an issue of Redbook. It was made as a 26-minute short that was first aired on CBS in late 1966. CBS repeated the Christmas special annually until their last airing in 1986.

The title name of the good and the animated special widely critises the commercialisation of Christmas. Why is that?

The Grinch decies to stop Christmas from coming by stealing presents, trees and food for their Christmas feast only to get rid of them.

You can read all about the idea on Wikipedia. The Grinch returned in the followup animated series called Halloween is Grinch Night in 1977 on ABC and again in mid-1982 called The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat.

This idea comes up to this. What does Grinches who try to ruin Christmas have to do with Secret Santa?

To put it this way, Grinches are Santas whom the Secret Santa organiser or group founder have contacted in regards to a late submission that is outside the deadline (anywhere between the day after New Years and the first Monday of the new year) and have failed to get a reply from their deliquent Santa within a week or more. The deliquent Santa who ignores their warnings is like talking to a brick wall. The idea of being at Grinch is one thing - either not or failing to give a giftee something for Christmas.

So, what are one of the biggest reasons for late Secret Santa submissions?:
1. Time constraints. (There is a chance that if the time constraints are too much, the Santa could eventually back out.)
2. Health issue or family emergency. If the Secret Santa is still working on the gift, then they can request a extension of up to no later than the first two weeks of the new year. Anything beyond that is NOT okay.
3. Computer hardware issues.
4. Doing finals during the Winter break.

Now, what are the biggest reasons for a Secret Santa being a total Grinch?
1. Lack of time, lazyness/procrastination.
2. No internet access, no computer at all.

If a Secret Santa participant ever falls into Grinch category, then there will be consequences including being removed from any future events held by the organiser/group founder and will be at further risk of being banned from a group or blocked.

If this happens, the giftee turns into a giftless deviant and will have to ask for a volunteer Santa (or Mall Santa) to do the gift drawing.

That's how the rules of Secret Santas work.

I still have to work on a art trade and I hope that I will get it done sooner or later here.

Thoughts on Grinches anyone?
