As of October of 2015, I will be watermarking everything I submit to my gallery, due to past cases of art theft, and just people in general using my art without permission or without giving credit.

Do you prefer my art with thick lineart I've been using lately, or do you prefer the thin lineart I've used previously?

Zipo-Chan's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States

Please do not thank me for llamas.

Current Residence: Florida, US
Ethnicity: Irish/German (American-born)

About me:
I'm a 20-year old artist with Aspergers Syndrome. My Sonic/Chao FC Zipo the Chao is my account's mascot. Fan Art is my specialty, though I do sometimes on occasion draw more original stuff (though I don't typically upload it here). I'm a huge fan of the Sonic and Pokemon series, so expect mostly fan art of those franchises (even if all I really draw of the Sonic series is Chao). Feel free to watch if you'd like, I don't bite (unless for some reason you piss me off)!

Please note however that I have severe anxiety/depression problems and that I have a tendency to rant a lot. As a result I'm pretty anti-social around most people, so unless you are patient enough to deal with my "Gloomy Guss" behaviour sometimes, I suggest not watching my Journal entries, as they can be pretty depressing and rant-heavy.

Hope everyone had some good eats and family time.

Unrelated, but I just started taking anti-anxiety meds finally. They're nasty..

Wannabe FAQ

:bulletblue: Hey I like your art! Can you draw me something?
If you're asking for a request, then no. I am available for Art Trades with certain people though, just send a note if you're interested.

:bulletblue: Can I draw fan art of your characters?
Of course! You don't need permission to want to do gift art. Just be sure to send me the pic in a note when you finish it.

:bulletblue: Do you draw anything original?
On occasion I will do original art with original characters. But were generally done for school assignments, and I don't generally submit them here.

:bulletblue: You draw too much chao/pokemon/keronians/ponies, will you EVER draw something else?
I do draw other things too, just not as often. Also if you've got a problem with the stuff I draw, then I suggest you stop watching me. I draw what I like, not what others like.

:bulletblue: How long have you been drawing for?
This isn't the easiest question to answer since I can't remember my life in full detail. But family photos and personal memories suggest that I first started "drawing" as early as 1 and a half years old.

:bulletblue: Do you have a specific style you try to aim for?
It depends on what I'm drawing. My style is usually heavily inspired by official styles in the series I draw fan art of. With enough time, I generally end up developing my own style.

:bulletblue: Will you watch me?
If you're asking me up front, probably not. Also don't watch me for the sake of trying to get me to watch you, I don't do watch backs unless I like the other artist's works.

:bulletblue: Can we be friends?
Whether or not you consider ME a friend is up to you. Due to past negative experiences with certain former friends and being socially awkward, it is very hard for me to accept someone as an actual friend. If I do consider you one, consider yourself lucky!

:bulletblue: Why don't you like anime?
It's not anime itself that I dislike, it's the fanbase that has driven me away. Anime that I DO like I have chosen to watch for reasons besides the fact they're anime. Being a Japanese cartoon is not important to whether or not I like a show. Also the content in a lot of anime I don't exactly care for, sorry. Don't flame me.

:bulletblue: How often do you come onto dA?
Well I never hit the log out button (unless I'm on someone else's computer), so I guess I'm always on? In reality though, I usually come on several times a day to check my messages and clear my inbox.

:bulletblue: Can we add each other on Skype?
Who I add to my contacts list on Skype is my decision. You can add me if you want, but there'll be no guarentees that I'll add you back, especially if I don't know you that well.

:bulletblue: Can I have your 3DS Friend Code?
Again, who I choose to exchange Friend Codes with is my decision. I don't want random people adding me to theirs, which is why I keep mine private.

:bulletblue: How do you feel about your own art?
Personally I don't feel that strongly about it. It's rare that I finish a drawing and am satisfied with it, and even more rare that I actually consider myself proud of a drawing. I don't see my art as being that special, but maybe I'm just blind to my own talent, that's usually how it works right?

:bulletblue: What's your real name?
My real name has been leaked online, but I refuse to disclose it here to those who don't know yet. If you know what my actual name is, PLEASE do NOT go advertising it to others you know or random strangers, I will disown you if you do >:I

:bulletblue: If I know your real name, can I call you by it?
Only people who I know in real life are allowed to call me by my actual name (though honestly I wish they wouldn't online). If you only know me by the internet, then you do not have permission to do so.

:bulletblue: Is there a nickname I can call you?
CXG and Zipz work good enough for me.

:bulletblue: You do realize that "Zipo" is spelt with two "p's" right?
Yes I am aware of the lighter brand "Zippo". I originally used the name "Zipo" as a name for an old FC, and have always spelt it with just one "p", and was previously unaware of the lighter's name. It's still pronounced the same just FYI.

:bulletblue: Can I use your art for something?
Generally I don't like people using my art unless I specify otherwise. However if you give credit, then I'm usually okay with it. Also it helps to know what you want to use it for.

:bulletblue: Can I use your art as a referance?
For character referencing or color-palatte purposes you are allowed to use my art as a reference. You are NOT however allowed to trace my art or edit it in any way (aside from crops and resizing for avatars, as long as credit is given).

:bulletblue: Can I ask one more question?
Sorry, my hands are getting tired from typing all of this, so no, that WAS your last question. Good bye!
