I like to draw but not color. I also like to design characters and analyze other characters. I also try to cosplay and roleplay sometimes.

I don't really want to be a professional artist, so I improve at my own pace. I draw almost every day though and I've been doing that since I was little. It's a big part of my life though I don't want to do anything with it. :U I think everyone needs an interest like that; one that isn't your profession.

What I actually want to be is a voice actor/voice over artist. No, I don't just want to be an anime voice actor; I want to lend my voice to commercials, audio books, and so on too. I have my reasons and those reasons are really important to me.

Types of character designs that I always seem to end up liking:
-Cute witch designs
-Shark tooth boys
-Ram boys
-Newsie-looking characters
-Almost anything with cute/cool overalls
-Designs with a lot of sweets incorporated into them
-Adored color scheme:…

I also like the concept of witches doing things differently from the traditional witch yet still keeping some aspects of it.

Current Residence: California and sometimes Arizona
Favourite type of music: Music box with accordion, usually folk though
Favourite style of art: Cartoon
Favourite cartoon/game character: Link (of Zelda) and Pepé Le Pew <3
Hi everyone! So I'm going to start this journal off with that dA birthday thing, and then I'm going to let you all know what I've been up to and why I keep disappearing for like... ever.

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
-Since November 9, 2006

What does your username mean?
-Tenjilover is... well Tenji is a combination of Tenten and Neji from the Naruto series. While I'm not exactly into Naruto anymore, I do still like the pairing, thankfully. I mean, I'm not fond of my username for sure, but at least I still like the pairing. I was discussing with a friend once really, you can stop liking something-- hate it even-- but the pairings you had will never die. Ain't that the truth (unless the reason you don't like it anymore is because of the pairing).
Anyway, my username just means that I'm a lover of NejixTenten, or TentenxNeji really, but eh; I didn't really care about what the order of the names in the ship implied back then.

Describe yourself in three words.
-Does everything slow

Are you left or right handed?

What was your first deviation?
-Oh nooooo...…
That moment when your first deviation wasn't even NejixTenten related.

What is your favourite type of art to create?
-Comedic art :U

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
-The accordion U:

What was your first favourite?
-You're going to do this to me? Go back all that way?…

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
-Probs fan art

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
-I don't have one.

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
-My friends (who still hang around dA) probably. ;u; The rest vanished... poof! (They went to Tumblr and I didn't follow.)

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
-Uh. I guess I've just learned a lot from everyone about even the smallest things. Made mistakes, made achievements-- together. I like being able to create art with people, so all those times when I was able to really just... draw with people in paintchats, make comics together, throw ideas at each other, all without the "MY WATCHERS! MY ART NEEDS TO BE PRO! PAGEVIEEEEWS! I'M NOT A GOOD ENOUGH ARTIST" comments just really added a positive part to my life. It seems I can't really get those times back; everyone always seems to be self-conscious about their work or judging my own. Or it's all about the money nowadays. It's like, shut up guys, let's just draw. ;A; Let's just create and have fun again...

What are your preferred tools to create art?
-Pencil :U I love my tablet, but I can't get enough of pencils. I love my pencil sketches more than my tablet work most of the time.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
-Um... a place where I have all the time in the world or a place where it's always right before I need to go to bed. OTL

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
-Oh! Besides what I said in the fellow deviant life impact part, I remember having like a dA talent show with some mods and such. I was so nervous, but it was fun just being with everyone! Also, I've had so much fun roleplaying with people over the years. ;u; I've met amazing people. I kinda sorta got a little busy for it, but I do wish to go back to roleplaying as frequently as I used to.

Right, so lately I've been really focused on actually watching anime. I can't say I'm proud; I spend all day and night watching shows and then become scared when people want me to watch one hour episode shows. XD My life is being wasted. At the same time, it's like I'm still getting a lot done, because as I watch, I'm usually typing scripts for Red-Handed. Yes yes, I'm for serious working on Red-Handed now, just working out all the plot points, making sure there aren't any plotholes, checking if what characters are doing make sense, and so on. I can't say it'll be done or anyone will see any pages any time soon, but it's being worked on instead of just sitting there. I'm typing out the entire script and THEN drawing it so when I do finish the script then it'll only be a matter of drawing= there should be a pretty consistent flow of pages unless I become super busy.

What might make me busy? Well! I'm almost done with this community college and will be moving on to another college eventually! I seriously only need a few more classes as long as I don't mess up. :U A little note, when college is in, I really do give that 90% of my attention, which kinda makes everything else fall behind.

Also, I've been working on other projects as well. I'm thinking of ways I can make a little money for myself because I can't really (or shouldn't really) try to get jobs until I get the most challenging class for me out of the way. Sadly, I fooled around with scheduling and it looks like I'll have to take it during my last semester in college ever, ha hah!;;

If I'm not working on scripts, projects, and/or finishing shows, I'm usually (doing homework), forgetting to answer messages on dA or FB or anywhere, doodling a lot, making post and run remarks on MyAnimeList, or playing Neopets to forget the pain of life and classes but actually only adding more pain because Neopets is painful. Also, I've been trying to eat healthier and exercise more. Yep, that's what I've been up to.

EDIT: I totally forgot to say, above is why I'm usually away, but my recent reason for being away has been because of AX and relatives coming over from Tennessee. O: From the end of the college semester to the midnight of the first day of AX, I was working on cosplays. It was really hectic.;; Then right after AX, we had to prepare for my relatives who stayed for a long while at our house. I could only really get online to do homework and maybe a few other really quick things and that was it. So sorry about my absence! And then after that I just needed a lot of alone time. A lot. So now I'm getting back into the swing of things now that I can finally get back on track. Too bad college starts again on the 17th. -sighs-

  • Listening to: Air conditioners and fans
  • Watching: Lemon Angel Project or Lupin III
  • Drinking: Water

Tenjilover Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2017
Hi, so I'm not opening my inbox just yet, but instead I wanted to type out my ideas for something. I reeeally don't like to put my ideas out there and just prefer to put out the finished project, BUT I keep on finding that I'll run into a project that's sooo similar to my own-- whether it's characters, plot, setting, yadda, that either someone accuses me of copying their shit or I start to think, "Oh gdi, they're going to accuse me of copying their shit. Screw it, I'm scrapping the whole idea". And then nothing gets anywhere. I'm already seeing it happen again, so I'm just going to get to typing right here where you can't edit comments on dA. I just don't want any shit. So here we go.

So this is... only one of my ideas, but it' the one I'm working on so frequently right now because I plan to do this, get it out there, and doing my hustle as fast as possible without compromising quality. And what I'm doing is just making these cute little witch "trading" cards-- they're just cards with the witches on the front and a bio and such on the back. I love love love these designs and characters so far and might make more, but so far I have my set. I'll upload them here one day. So I plan to take those to artist's alleys-- which might be hard as an original work, but I'm going to work my ass off which is exactly why I feel I need to type this and make sure nothing goes wrong. Proof that I'm not nabbing someone's ideas, characters-- whatever before some accuses me of doing so.

SO in addition to the cards, I wanted to put these characters in a little game. I reeeally don't want to explain the game/give it away, but here we go-- very loose and sloppy explanation coming up. So there's this magic university and there's an advanced class and a standard plus class (it's a pretty good school, just to get in is pretty great).

So you're playing as a witch who is making an attempt to get into the advanced class. The students don't switch around and only the teachers switch from class to class. So the teachers decided to let the advanced students "decide" which students get to be in the advanced class (the teachers still have a say) since they're the ones who will be stuck with that student and will have to collaborate with them; they should also be advanced enough not to be biased and be able to tell who is also advanced. If there's too much bias, the teachers will step in unless the class can convince them that something that was done wasn't fit for advanced class. For example, if you kill the bunny, they will probably convince the teacher not to let you in, but if you just let the bunny be and didn't interact with it at all, some might protest, but the teacher will probably just dismiss them (unless you get way too many of those mundane protests).

Anyway, in order to test readiness for the advanced class, each advanced student has prepared a teacher-approved challenge the player must complete. If they pass all the challenges then they get in, if not, then nah. BUT the pass/fail criteria is a little more complicated than that. I won't go into this too much, but just as an example, let's say you passed blah blah's challenge but made them feel awful about their existence in the process, then they might actually give you a "half pass" (they'll say you passed but in coding it's only like one point as opposed to two or something), and their one friend in the class might hear about it and decide against you joining the class. And that probably won't have you automatically not get into the advanced class, but if you keep doing things like that, then those points will add up against you, and you probably won't get in. Things like that.

Right? Okay. So besides the game-- maybe even multiple games-- I did want to draw comics and such for these folks. ( Already have but those are secret. lol ) By the way, this is in the same universe as Pages and Pathways.

I did want to throw these characters down really quick, because honestly that's often where I run into trouble the most. "Oh gosh, my character looks/is too much like x's character. :C Scrapping the whole project. Forget it." Not this time. Might get in trouble with how they look though since I'm not uploading those yet, but whatever. I'll do it eventually. They're all drawn out-- I have sooo many things drawn out not just for this project; I'm just too busy/lazy to scan them and the sketchbooks they're in are kinda difficult to scan. I don't want to bother. 

Anyway, some of these are actually kinda a work in progress when it comes to who they are, what they want, what they're like, and so on. Some things might change. Also, I'm leaving out some of the bio bits just because they're so... temporary for some but set in stone for others.

ALSO, "Witch Themes". Once witches reach a certain level in their studies, they're allowed to choose a theme (usually related to something they like). Instead of wearing the usual black school robes/uniforms, they'll receive a uniform specially tailored to their theme. This is an attempt to encourage students to advanced further and not just stop as soon as they know what the basics. Many witches look back on their themes with embarrassment-- but one can appeal to change their theme if they really want to. One more thing before these bios. They're at Pargaem Academy... like Party Game, so you might see a running theme of things you might see at a party. I did plan to make other witch games of other locations-- maybe even Magise (Pages and Pathways). I'll see.

Right, so here we are-- some ages are pending by the way:

Witch Theme: Petal
Name: Saryl
Age: 17
-Magic Focus: Plant growth
-Magical Strength: Magical plant use
-Description: Saryl the Petal Witch has a big, admirable dream to show the world that plants can be used for so much more than what they're known for and another to own a whole field of all her favorite flowers. As wonderful as this sweet girl's dream may be, she fails to take the proper steps to make her dreams a reality and just flies around admiring the nature around her.
Challenge: Find a particular flower in the fields

Witch Theme: Blueberry
Name: Mirana
Age: 16
-Magic Focus: Magical bakes
-Magical Strength: Mind Reading
-Description: Baking is Mirana the Blueberry Witch's strength and love; adding magic to her bakes is a whole other journey. After all, what type of magic would one want to experience in a slice of pie other than a wonderfully delicious taste? She's passionate about her bakes and ideas nonetheless and really isn't interested in hearing any other thoughts on the matter.
Challenge: Bake a pie based on what a customer wants
-Note: She kinda seems like a gossiping housewife, but actually, she'll drop a conversation in a heartbeat if it starts to get into other people's personal lives. She's not down for that. It was hard to put that in the description; gotta see it in action.

Witch Theme: Birthday
Name: Amoretta
Age: 18
-Magic Focus: Luck spells
-Magical Strength: Fire spells
-Description: Sometimes you need a lit candle to light the other candles around you, and Amoretta the Birthday Witch lives by that. From good luck spells to squeezing out what's on one's mind, Amoretta makes it her business to make the world smile little by little. Then again, not everyone wants to smile all the time.
Challenge: Go get a cake and balloons for a party
-Note: She's aiming to be a counselor and is considering changing her magic focus to telepathy, mind reading, whatever the heck.

Witch Theme: Black Licorice
Name: Oreene
Age: 16
-Magic Focus: Healing Spells
-Magical Strength: None
-Relations: Maste the Frosting Witch is her big brother.
-Description: There isn't much that Oreene the Black Licorice Witch is good at. Now that she's no longer following the lead of her older brother, Maste the Frosting Witch, Oreene's starting out new on a path of casting healing spells. It's never too late to pursue her newfound dream of becoming a medical potion maker.
Challenge: Find a cure/potion for whatever illness/ailment one might have

Witch Theme: Frosting
Name: Maste
Age: 18
-Magic Focus: Curses
-Magical Strength: Various
-Relations: Oreene the Black Licorice Witch is his little sister.
-Description: With a small tub of frosting usually at the crook of his arm, one might be surprised to discover that Maste the Frosting Witch isn't as sweet as his tooth. Most other witches find him to be unapproachable and avoid him for many reasons. Since he casts spells with ease, he motivated himself to pursue a more difficult and risky magic focus which isn't often explored by other students: curses.
Challenge: Choose a person and curse them

Witch Theme: Travel
Name: Xyle
Age: 19
-Magic Focus: Summoning
-Magical Strength: Flying
-Description: Xyle the Travel Witch is nervous about interacting with others and is often avoided because of their mysterious nature. This would be great for someone who enjoys being alone, but Xyle loves company. In an attempt to change their situation, Xyle travels to find as many summoned beings as possible that will keep them company or maybe even befriend them.
Challenge: Talk to them. Yeah.

Witch Theme: Bunny
Name: Faunda
Age: 15
-Magic Focus: Entertainment magic
-Magical Strength: Shape-shifting
-Description: Wherever there's fun is wherever Faunda the Bunny Witch will go. Whenever the fun is being sucked away is when she will leave. Faunda just wants the world to be entertained with constantly changing styles and shows. Even she doesn't tend to stay the same as she's often shape-shifting from one form to another.
Challenge: Bunny-sit her bunny
-Note: No one knows what her true form is-- I mean, there are two forms she usually uses, but it's not known which out of the two is her original form.

Witch Theme: Bass
Name: Trebeline
Age: 20
-Magic Focus: Bard type enhancement spells
-Magical Strength: Enchantment spells (like animation of inanimate objects)
-Description: Being a little dopey and a bit of a pushover, Trebline the Bass Witch often finds herself in some sticky situations. Finding that just playing the bass would calm her down whenever those situations really got to her, Trebeline decided to explore magic through music which could help her and others through whichever moods they might want to be in or overcome.
Challenge: Listen to her play certain songs and she wants your opinion on them.
-Note: Mah girl here messed up. She made her magic focus "Enchantment" when she meant "Enhancement" and she was too scared/embarrassed to say anything. So now she's finally focusing on what she wanted to do, and at least her unwanted skills in enchantment spells has landed her a seat in the advanced class.

Witch Theme: Dice
Name: Jole
Age: 15?
-Magic Focus: Illusion spells
-Magical Strength: Luck spells
-Description: Sometimes it's hard to tell what's going on when Jole the Dice Witch is around. This witch loves to play games, but he also loves to work with illusion magic. When most see him in class, he'll use his illusion magic to entertain, but he keeps his magic use outside of class a mystery. Actually, quite a few things about Jole can only be answered with a huge question mark...
Challenge: Pretty much a board game... all by yourself.
-Note: Jole just likes to mess with people's minds. lol

Witch Theme: Generiwitch/Generic
Name: Lyley
Age: 17
-Magic Focus: Magic candy making
-Magical Strength: Entertainment or fun-type magic boost
-Note: So this is the player character. Lyley has a description, but I'm afraid to put it down since the player character is technically supposed to be you? But not really... Like Lyley is their own person, out of the game, but in the game it's you... ish? Also, in the cards, they technically represent any witch who isn't in the advanced class. I'll hold off on it for now.

I swear there's at least a little more to these characters than just this, and they really are a fun batch of characters. Oh my gosh! But I don't want to give away too much and like I typed before some things are still kinda being worked on (though it's really just me debating on petty things or imagining/drawing out how certain things would work out). So I guess that's all I want to type for now? The game might not be done for a long while, but the cards should be done hopefully soon. I wanted them done by February 17th, but another project came up which needs to be finished first, and it's taking me a lot more time than I thought it would. That and I'm working on cosplays at the moment.;; After Anime Los Angeles, I should be able to make more progress. I really love this project, to be honest, and so I really hope everything goes well.

And to think this actually all started with Waluigi...
I might as well just explain that. So, I was joking around and told a friend I should have a table at a con that's just all Waluigi. Who wouldn't want to buy from a table that's just all friggen Waluigi? Like, it's so... wtf that you just gotta buy something. So I seriously went home and got to doodling some things I'd sell at my Waluigi table, which I was going to call, "Purple Plumber Productions" or something like that. Like the whole thing was that I was working on the title, one which didn't actually use "Waluigi" but was clearly a Waluigi table name. Then I stopped and thought, " Wait... I'm spending all this time trying to pick a name that won't get me sued but... the whole table can get me sued...!" If Nintendo came over to my table, they could shut the WHOLE able down as opposed to just taking down whatever they owned and not being able to do anything about the stuff I was selling that they didn't own rights to.
Then I thought, "Why would I put myself through that? Wait, you know what, why spend that much time and effort on Waluigi when I could spend that much time, effort, and a lot more love (I mean I LOVE Waluigi in a 'he's me' way, but there's a certain fondness when it comes to your own babies)  on an original idea. That way, no one can come and shut me down-- it's just all my stuff." And then I got to work, because I had been drawing witch designs already-- always have been, and then I just started designing them to be sellable. And the thing is, though they're "made to be marketed", there's still a looot of love in these characters. Like, sell or no sell, I love these cuties. So to me, I've already "won".
So thanks, Waluigi.
