"The Shonen Academy and Boy's Universe have finally decided that now is a good time to start going social, so we've established a little something called Ask a Shonen. As the title states, it's simply a place where visitors can ask a Shonen Academy member whatever questions they have in mind. The rules are simple: just choose someone from this list and then ask him your question(s). You are free to ask as many Shonen Academy members as you want, but we might not be able to answer them all at once and will try to answer them to our best ability. Or if you like, you may also ask Kenny (middle), Uriah (right), or me (left) any questions you'd like to ask us. Also, don't forget that your questions must be appropriate. After all, Shonen are people too, you know.
Best of all, Ask a Shonen is open to anyone who's interested, so if you have nothing to do, maybe this is a perfect activity for you."
I refer to myself as a "Shonen Artist" because my drawings mainly consist of young males, especially those aged about 4-21. I can be referred to as E, Mary, or Animé; either designation is okay. I'm quite shy around new people and it's very hard for me to say hello, but I seem to enjoy interesting conversations and learning about other people. That's how I make friends. ^^
As the name states, this organization is made solely for the purpose of supporting young male characters. Due to young males being a scarce, insignificant, and rather mistreated category among popular culture, here's a place that can help them shine. For male characters who either look, act, and sound young, welcome!
If anybody's interested in visiting the Shonen Academy, just go here.
Sorry! No older and/or adult male characters allowed!
I have a new policy for viewers, watchers, and friends of mine on dA. I will no longer take any requests. If you do have requests, it must be of something in my gallery. And those who know me should remember my expectations:
-They must be appropriate (no fanservice or anything of the sort)
-It has to be something that I can relate to. I refuse to draw something I could care less about (e.g. female characters).
-No shippings, pairings, or couples. Please, do people know how irritated I become whenever I see such things?
-Anthropomorphism (e.g. furry fandom) is not acceptable
-Do not tell me to make changes on my character or character interpretations (e.g. change Roger's eyes red, or genderbend the Lolita Project)
-No OOC. (OOC-out of character)
-I must approve it (I'm very hard to please)
-One suggestion at a time, please. Too much at once gives me stress.
Heed these words, and things will be fine. Thank you.
UTAU Song Requests
I'd never thought I'd say this, but to due to my lack of motivation, busy schedule, and/or loss of interest in the Vocaloid community as of late, I think it's safe to say that, from this day and onward, I'll be taking UTAU song requests from other people. I don't know if some know, but aside from deviantART, I also do UTAU covers on Youtube with my UTAU voicebanks; two of the Shonen Academy teams actually originated as UTAU (and still are), before they became teams. Here are my current UTAU voicebanks:
I know. That's a lot of UTAU, but at least I try my best to manage all of them, even though I know what I'm doing will make a certain AMB totally infuriated since my UTAU are all male, but why does it really matter? Besides, these are my UTAU and I use them the way I want to use them...
Filling out a request is simple. Just tell me the song's name and the UTAU(s) you want me to use. If your request is a group song, you are free to specify which of the UTAU above you would like me to use for each role; otherwise, I decide the roles by default. Even though my UTAU are all male, they can sing songs regardless of gender role.
Like with all requests, please suggest one cover at a time. Too many requests would mean excess stress...
*The Seven Deadly Sounds and A.R.C.O.I.R.I.S. are private UTAU used for collaborative purposes only.
If you like, please leave a comment if you have any questions or something nice to say about my images. This is optional.
WARNING: Possibility of odd imagery.
