Nemonus's Profile Picture
United States
The Nem is composed of equal parts of the following:

people falling out of spaceships. artificial intelligence. karate. poultry. cyborgs. critters with sharp teeth. head pipes. car metaphors. people driven crazy by machines. space acrobatics.

Shake well and serve.
My novel-length Halo fic "If There Are Wolves Among The Stars" has a small sequel now, After The Long Winter.

I feel sortof weird blowing my own horn about that when I'm not just posting it here, but I know several people here enjoyed that story, and it was by far the story of mine that got the most fanart.

I like this idea of a reminiscence, a site-wide summing up of things. I joined in 2008 because my college friend was into it; she didn't draw. I did, but my story of dA is really, I think, discovering that art isn't going to be a huge part of my life. There's nothing sad about that, the way I see it. The things I most enjoyed on dA, at times, were reading comments on other people's work and writing my reviews of The Clone Wars. The responses and discussion I got out of those reviews were what began my Star Wars blog, which is bringing me a lot of cool experiences now.

This is my first existing deviation:

Looking back through my gallery today, I deleted several things - the self-insert characters, mostly. There's still a lot of evidence of those, and of my crusades and crushes. I'm not sure how I feel about that. They're part of me too, and helped me grow, I guess. I'll always have some guilty fondness for the shameless self insert characters, just no desire to inflict them on the internet. On the other hand, I've lost either the patience or the scrapiness I needed to argue or to field questions about years-old posts.

Some things about the site will always baffle me. I never got used to the existence of adoptables. I never had a desire to turn a drawing of a creature, however polished, into a character with a name and a species and a possibility of being owned. I regret, sometimes, not going into more creature design - I browsed it almost as much as I did Star Wars, but didn't produce as much.

There are other things I'll always love about dA - mostly the people. Before I was on dA, I mostly interacted with other Star Wars fans on small forums.  I still talk to many of my dA friends on tumblr. I've met some of you in real life. I still have some really strong friendships from dA, and I love that. The encouragement I got from people here started off a five or so year period where I did draw with the aim of getting better (or at least more popular?), and improved to a point.

I still draw for fun, like doodling Togrutas when I'm bored, but really have no desire to show my art online.

Here are some of my better drawings and some other rather randomly chosen things I like.
