originArts's Profile Picture
The Origin Man (TOM)
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
Traditional artist trying to find personal style, mixing ones had from a younger age to new forms absorbed in the present. Hopefully one day the right style will be found.
Greetings everyone, I haven't been vocal in a while and there's a reason for that. I have moved my focus to Youtube, I do speed drawing videos there. But, once I'm done with my series there, I'll be sure to post them here. So if you want to continue seeing updates from me, I do weekly drawings with some commentary here:…

This doesn't mean I'm done with DA. not at all.
Anyway in other news I got tagged by someone to do a journal questionnaire, so here it goes

-Tag 8 people you want to know better!
-Tagged by the super-modest

originArts (I don't feel like giving my real one, nothing personal against you)

Star Sign
Leo, they say they're very sensitive, and passionate, and outgoing. I wouldn't say any of these things singularly define me, instead if you got to know me you'd find a little of both and more so.

Average hours of sleep
I try and am comfortable with getting 8 hrs. My body wakes me up if I really try to go more than that. 

Lucky number
I don't particularly believe in lucky quality of numbers, but my favorite numbers that I like a lot, are 3,7, and 9 (all odd numbers, because I'm odd and I like odd things, generally) 3 because triangles are great and its a solid number. 7 because it's generally believed to be lucky, and 9 because 3x3=9.

Last thing I googled
Alice in Wonderland 1951 lyrics (I wanted to sing along properly)

Favorite fictional character

I like Milo- The Phantom Tollbooth (his arch spoke to me as a child)
Shoyo Hinata-Haikyuu (pure tenacity and talent)

I'm sure there are others, but I can't for the life of me remember T_T

What are you wearing right now?
Plain White Tee and pajama pants
(also feel sometimes I just look good in something plain like this)

When did you start this account? 
4 years ago, geez, didn't think I was that young

Amount of watchers
52 that humble me every time I think of that number

What do you post?
Traditional Art mostly, and black and white cross hatching Fanart

Do you run anymore blogs?
I got a Tumblr and a Youtube…

Do you get a lot of comments?
I do not get tons of comments but the ones I get I read and appreciate! :D

Why did you choose this username?
It started because I'd like to think I'm pretty original with my life, and I make art.
(it's weird actually writing this out for people to read)

  • Listening to: Free Form Jazz
  • Watching: Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress
  • Playing: Dark Souls 3 (a bit)
  • Eating: What I can find
  • Drinking: Strawberry Milk Tea

Hello! I'm writing to you in case of cooperation and Art Trade from group The-Great-Art-Trade.
At the beginning I would like to apologize for long absence and not introducing myself. I hope you are still interested in art trade ^^;

It will be a pleasure for me to draw Batman Beyond for you, I love this design. And, between us, I wanted to draw it anyway for my gallery so if I will draw this to make someone happy, I will be really glad :)
originArts Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I would enjoy doing this Art Trade with you. I'm leaning toward drawing Garret from Thief.
I prefer his design a lot. and I just want to say, my half of the trade might take a while because of school and stuff and I want to 
give you a product that both you and I will be happy with.
Ufekkk007 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
So awesome that you want to draw Garrett, he's my favourite :)
Don't worry about time, my part of trade will take a little bit longer too - I must share my time with work and college. I think that I will have Batman drawing before 30th of September, for sure :)
originArts Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you for understanding. I have college to deal with as well. I believe the 30th is a good goal to set. And mine shouldn't take too long once I get the right preliminary pose/draft done.
