  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? - "For... *checks profile* 11 years."

  2. What does your username mean? "It's me yo. Or rather, it's the name of my persona. Much like the Joker, I have many origin stories. Unlike the Joker, I rarely get to use them 'cause nobody knows who I am."

  3. Describe yourself in three words. "Quoth the Raven"

  4. Are you left or right handed? "Right."

  5. What was your first deviation? " Where I live by Rythmear - Come visit me yo. "

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? "Writing. Love the writing. But pretty much anything slightly odd or fantastical."

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? "Animation. Oh how I would love to be able to animate the random bollocks I think up when listening to music."

  8. What was your first favourite? " one winged angel by ABHEL - I've never even played the game. "

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? "All sorts. Mostly funny stuff or things my friends do. Sometimes horror, sometimes fantasy, sometimes butts. Butts are great."

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? "Don't make me choose... I mean :iconjollyjack: is sensational, :iconbug-off: and :iconblazbaros: need way more viewers than they have 'cause they are awesome... honestly I could ramble about this question for an eternity. Just check my favourites list, friends list, list of people I've referenced in past journals... good lord. Also, if you're in any way interested in Tarot related stuff, go check out this guy - :iconbluefluke: - he's a champ."

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? " :iconalexiuss: All day, every day. A fellow gas-mask enthusiast and a talented artist? Oh lord yes. "

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? "... Pretty much everyone who has contributed to Umbrella Man has changed my life; the notion that I could create something that people would actually like enough to draw pictures of is really uplifting and a real boon to one's confidence. Plus Blaz and Bug-Off created two of my favourite Umbrella-Man related characters who will definitely be in the novels along with :iconherman-the-handyman: "

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? "Pencil and paper. Or a decent keyboard."

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? "Anywhere with a comfortable chair. Or a decent keyboard. Or a decent sound system."

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? "The first time I had an Umbrella Man photo featured as a Daily Deviation... even though it was the one photo he was barely in. Ech." #DeviantArtistQuestionnaire

Cleaning up some Loose Ends

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 8, 2015, 8:53 PM
Hello all, (or rather, Hello the few of you who still follow me),

It's been five years now since I last updated this journal - which means my old 'Boss' contest has been going for five years... rather sloppy work on my part, but life has a tendency to distract one from finishing certain projects.

However, while I am okay with ditching old personal projects, now that I've got a spot of free time on my hands I want to wrap up old affairs that directly involve other people. Some splendid pieces came out of that contest, and it's -long- overdue that I cast a verdict and hand out prizes.

So...

First Place goes to: Umbrella Man Boss: Crunch by ThunderManEXE - A charming little colourful piece that features a character I could absolutely imagine running into in a classic old adventure game. It has just that right level of science-fiction meshed with cartoonish good-looks that I love. It's a splendidly drawn character and the fluff made me chortle immensely. :iconthundermanexe: gets first choice into the (significantly expanded) list of games I'm offering over Steam.

Second Place goes to: Scalashura by Blazbaros - Anyone who knows me know that I'm a sucker for the 'Dark Path' alternative scenario; what if this person succumbed to their weaknesses and turned to a more wicked direction? This magnificently drawn piece absolutely captures that idea. :iconblazbaros: is a wonderfully talented artist and this piece not only helps to flesh out an existing character, but also serves as a spiffy boss. Once Thunderman makes his decision, Blaz gets to pick through the basket.

Third Place goes to: Umbrella Man and Jericho by saximaphone - Now, I don't know if I could make this work again (or even if it does still work after five years), but this was an entire little game that was churned out! I recall it being mind-numbingly difficult, but the sheer cleverness alone put a huge grin on my face regardless. A splendidly humourous number with a suitably grizzly character - the dialogue :iconsaximaphone: wrote in the description gave me a mighty chuckle. Once Blaz has gotten back to me, hit me up!

And the runners-up are: Something of a Boss fight by Tris1994 and Amphibios - The Frog Boss by ZombieMesh - Do not mistake the 'runner up' status as an indication of the quality; I love these pieces. I've always had a soft-spot for horror games, and the Amphibios design could totally have appeared in several of the indie games I've played these past few years. If Amphibios had been more than a sketch, it could very easily have been higher on the list. As for Lucy, well, as much as I love the Slenderman franchise - I did re-read my old rules before making this judgement, and I did say that other people's characters were off the table... It's technically part of another mythos, which sadly precluded it from winning first place. Even so, both :icontris1994: and :iconzombiemesh: did splendid drawings, and they've earned the games out of my library - if they wish to claim them.

As a final aside, there are two links in the entries section which no longer work... It could be that the artists either left D.A - or removed the pieces because they were (quite rightly) sick of waiting. To those people, I apologize - and if you wish to contact me, I'd be happy to provide prizes. I did say at the start of this contest that there would be something for everyone, and your pieces are just as deserving as any other.
