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.

Unless I specify otherwise..

Zipo-Chan's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied

Please do not thank me for llamas, favs, comments, or watches. Your comment WILL be hidden if you do so!

About me:
I'm a 22-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 Pokémon 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.

Please note that I am anti-social around most people, therefore I will not always respond to comments.

Current Residence: Hell

Ethnicity: Irish/German

Irma aftermath/Where I've been

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 10, 2017, 3:20 PM
So, I kinda disappeared and neglected to update the last entry as I said would. I've thought about updating it to explain why, but it's been over a month, so I figured I might as well do a new entry instead. Not even 12 hours after I made that last entry, we ultimately decided to evacuate, and stay with my step-dad's sister in New Jersey, who was okay with us bringing our pets. It took us about three days of driving to get there, and by the time we got to her place, Irma was pretty much already affecting Florida. I stayed in contact with my dad (who had to stay behind because he works with the media), and was able to get a good idea of how things were back at home. We stayed in New Jersey for about four days before making our return trip, which took about two days (not counting an extra day we stayed at a hotel because my mom wasn't feeling well and didn't want to drive). Thankfully, damage to the house was not major, but the yard was an absolute mess. According to my step-dad's brother, who checked on the house after the storm, the power was knocked out, but it had apparently been restored before we got back. My dad's house was pretty much the same in both cases. So thankfully, in the end, I did okay, and my residencies survived, which was actually a bit surprising, considering the fact that some other areas of the county I live in suffered severe flooding.

Part of the reason I neglected to update was simply due to me being away for about a week, but even though power had been restored at both my mom's and dad's houses, the internet was not. So I simply had no way of updating on my status. Though I will admit that even once we did get internet back up, I was a bit busy with other matters currently going on that I didn't even think of updating, so I apologise.

As far as my activity here goes, I still probably won't be that active due to stuff like art block, and my ongoing battle with depression, social anxiety, and other matters that are currently plaguing me. But I just needed to give an update as to what's been going on.

Wannabe FAQ

:bulletblue: Hey I like your art! Can you draw me something?
If you're asking for a regular request, then no. Please note that I WILL NOT bend this rule for friends, and if you pester me about finishing any kind of drawing, I have every right to cancel it, and possibly block you if your actions persist.

:bulletblue: Can I draw fan art of your characters?
Sure. 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 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 straight up ASKING me to, then no. 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?
Don't ask.

: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.

: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/Discord?
Who I add to my contacts list on Skype/Discord is my decision. You can add me if you want, but there'll be no guarantees 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!
