Take a look at this awesome art, if you have some time to spare! :D

Hii there! I'm Michelle, a hobbyist comic artist. I love to draw and also make up stories: combine the two and you get my comics. I mainly focus on my Pokemon comic Distortion right now, which is still in progress. I've always dreamed of having my own finished comic, and I work towards that goal. It probably will take a long time before I truly finish it (the story is huge and university tends to keep me busy nowadays) but you surely are welcome to stay for the ride. :)

I draw mainly manga-ish style, but also sometimes go for a more realistic approach. :) As for my comics, I choose to go with the anime style because it takes less time to produce comics that way.

Also, you probably already noticed I really love Pokemon. Naturally I have a lot of Pokemon art in my gallery, including my comics.

I also have a lot of other interests though: playing the piano, singing and practicing karate are some of my favorite things to do nowadays.
(And I'm a sucker for puppies and kittens and anything cute too, by the way.)

The best thing about DA in my opinion is the interaction with the people on here. I love my watchers and all the friends I made on here. Don't be shy to talk to me, I'll most likely reply 9/10 times :)

Anyway I hope you enjoy my artwork and comics! :heart:

Here are some incredibly kind and awesome people:

Help One Person Smile Stamp by Mirz123


I was wondering... Would you like me to draw something like a Valentines special for Valentine? :) If so, any suggestions/ideas?
I accidentally favorited my own deviation, anyone know how to undo this? ^^;
I'm kind of curious if some people know the answer to this question: but why do people here hate politics so much? I mean, I get that it can get pretty nasty but it's an interesting topic as well, right? 9/10 people I talk to on DA don't wanna discuss politics and I don't get why. I mean, whenever I talk about such topics it never ends with a fight, drama or anything like that. I suppose that with a lot of people it does end that way though and I can understand that people base conversations about politics on previous conversations they've had but I dunno, it's kinda frustrating to me that it's such a taboo topic. Politics is very interesting to me and you can really get to know a person better by talking about it. You also get to know a little better how they view the world and such. If you're respectful and reasonable I think it's just fun honestly... Just a random thought I had and I wanted to get off my chest.
Chapter 1 of Distortion is officially finished as of today! Tell me y'all, what are your first impressions of my comic so far? I'm not really sure what half of you guys think to be honest (most people don't comment that often) and I'm really interested. Please tell me below, and don't be shy to give me tips as well if you'd like! It could be bout the art, writing or maybe you want certain type of art more... I'd love to hear what you have to say. Anyway, I'm going to sleep now, love you guys and have a great day! :heart:
I just got a shiny impish umbreon on sun moon... I'm feeling lucky! :D
So I got tagged again...  by :iconrabidoctopus: this time. I guess I've gotta give 10 facts about myself again? Here I go:

1. I tend to overthink stuff a bit and worry too much for my own good.
2. I'm an introvert but people always think I'm an extrovert.
3. I'm a university drop out as of late. Not sure what to do now honestly... but then again, who ever knows what they are doing in life, right?
4. I think politics are interesting.
5. I rarely drink because I honestly don't think most drinks taste good. I actually only ever drink water; it's not exclusive to alcohol. I don't like normal drinks either.
6. I'm good at fighting but I don't like to fight and would be very hesitant to really hurt someone in a fight, AKA I'd probably hold back.
7. I don't really have a favorite colour. It changes all the time and at the moment I even pick a colour what most people don't even consider a colour anyway: white.
8. I really love Italy.
9. I tend to get lost in thought a lot.
10. I'm a perfectionist. This is a strenght and a weakness.

His questions;
1. Are you sick of this meme yet?
Nahh,  I'm just running out of facts about myself.

2. What in the world can that be?!
A meme I've done a thousand times? ... I think I know a new fact now. I'm quite sarcastic sometimes.

3. Pokemon team?
I REALLY want to tell you guys this, but it'll spoil my nuzlocke so I won't. Sorry.

4. Close combat or ranged?
I'm a terrible archer and I don't know how to handle a firearm. I'm quite good at fighting though so close combat it is.

5. You're trapped in a flaming barn and you have lost your pants. What do you do?
Go to a bathroom and call someone to get me pants.

6. What color would yer lightsaber be?
I'm not really into star wars honestly... so I'm not sure if it's an option, but white?

7. "Congratulations, you have won the 2017 Deep-Fried Tarantula Eating Competition! What are you going to do next?"
Well I have a small appetite so I think I'm going to brag about this for the rest of my life. Seriously, this would be a big accomplishment for me.

8. Ever seen 'Space Balls'?

9. Can you cossack dance?

10. How would you kill a person that crossed you on a deeply personal level?
Remember the thing I've said about pacifist before? Yeah try to forget that for a little bit. If someone got me to hate them so much that I wanted to kill them (for example if they killed my mother), I'd probably cut their stomach, get their intestines and hang them with their own intestines. I'd make them suffer.
... what do you mean, I need to see a therapist? I'm fine. Geez.

No but seriously guys, if someone touches my family, I won't hold back.

11. Did you know there's a ninja behind you?
Oh hell no.

12. Sweet or savory foods?

Oh please. You already tried, dear. lol.

I won't tag anybody C:
