Hey, folks! Hope you're doing well. Figured I'd update ya on the what's what and the whatnot's.


For starters, I still have yet to resume working on the hammer handle project, and I do apologize for that. I've either been busy, it's been stupid hot outside, or both. So, naturally, the handle isn't done. The good news is, my dad gave me a little money for my birthday, so I will likely be buying some tools and stuff soon. It wasn't a lot of money, so I wont be buying a lot of tools, me thinks.

Among the stuff I'm buying, I will very likely pick up a wood rasp, which will make working on the handle go a lot quicker. The rest of stuff I'm buying? Related to another project. You'll know plenty about it soon enough, I'm sure. ;)
Figured I'd do this in celebration of deviantART's 15th birthday. (Happy Birthday, DA!!)


1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Roughly 4 years.

2.What does your username mean?

It is my first name pronounced in Japanese. Technically the Romaji variant.

3.Describe yourself in three words.
Chronic internet user.

4.Are you left or right handed?
I am right hand dominant.

5.What was your first deviation?

This: deviantART by Jieikobu

6.What is your favourite type of art to create?
I don't know that I have a favorite. If I did, I would probably focus on that exclusively. The problem (if you can call it that) is that I love variety. I love making various things from various mediums, styles, etc. One major downside to that I that I have many projects that I wish to do with very little money, so many projects either get started then put on hold, or they just aren't started at all.

7.If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I have no idea. Part of the enjoyment I get out of art is seeing the progress I am making and how much I am developing. Though I might go with mastering a form of Manga art style.

8.What was your first favourite?
Officially, this: Anime by ToshiroUrahara24   Unofficially, I believe I accidentally Favorited a Manga style bikini girl. Yes, I can feel your judgement. No, it doesn't bother me. 

9.What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

I'm not sure. If you're asking what my "type" is, I have to say that I don't have one. As I said earlier, I enjoy variety.

10.Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Dude, that's like asking a child who their favorite parent is. No.

11.If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Probably someone I'm friends with.

12.How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

I'm still here, and that's more than you need to know for your answer.

13.What are your preferred tools to create art?
Kind of a cheesy answer, and I'm sorry for that, but my mind.

14.What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
That depends on the art I am creating.

15.What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I don't think I can give you an answer to that. I haven't really done much with deviantArt. Though, if I were forced to give an answer, I would say any moment where I really got to interact with a fellow deviant in a positive way would be my favorite.
Translation Needed by Jieikobu
Translation Needed
So I purchased a Katana off Amazon well over a year ago, and I have wondered what the Kanji on the Nakago meant. The company I purchased the sword from is Ten Ryu. It only cost me a hundred dollars, and the quality isn't all that great. Decent, certainly passable, but not great.

I failed to get a good photo of the Nakago, so I sketched the Kanji and took a photo of that (pictured above). If I ever get a decent photo of the Nakago, I will be sure to edit this with a link to that. The Kanji are poorly inscribed on the Nakago. The inscription is made of a series of small divots. Though, I'm honestly surprised that there's even a signature at all.

If any of you out there can translate the Kanji, it would be greatly appreciated, though I cannot pay you.

My apologies for the poor quality image, by the way.

Just an awkward, nerdy-ish, dorky dude who rarely uploads any art here. Yeah, sorry about that.

Oh, you wanted to know about what I do with my life? What is a "Life?" Sorry, don't even know what that is. Lololololol
