Been drawing almost daily since I was a toddler, I tried digital for the first time in 2001 but didn't adopt it as a serious and regular medium until coming here and working harder at it in 2006. I have invested thousands of hours and dollars in this hobby just in the past few years alone - please don't steal what I've dedicated everything I have to perfecting :police:

Shamelessly tagged by pulbern who was tagged by nonsurejaguar nosugarjustanger who was tagged by Farand who was tagged by FAlLURE who was tagged by the frog on the log in the hole at the bottom of the sea (what the hell is a freshwater amphibian doing at the bottom of a saltwater environment anyway :shakefist:) Anyway, I won't be tagging anyone since everyone I know or care about in the forums has been bitten already, so on with the questions.

Hi! Why don't you tell me a bit about yourself and why and when you started ForumMing

I'm Matthew "priteeboy" Attard: Digital artist, space nerd, gardener, nature lover, cat person, aquarium enthusiast, Nintendo fanatic, bishie addicted leather fetishist, starry-eyed idealist crossed with easily-agitated cynic, and potential fashion/landscape/interior designer (haven't decided on one yet). I joined deviantART back in early 2006, it's one of many significant things that happened to me that year and probably the best one. I didn't even know there was a forum until after being here for a year after joining since it took me that long to care enough about seeing what all this other stuff was. I got addicted pretty fast though.

That's Interesting. Where do you usually lurk on the forums now
Deviants forum is my priority as it's the "main" one with the broadest range of topics and gets fresh threads more frequently. I also look at the gaming forum and movies/TV forum sometimes. I used to like complaints forum but it's shit now (maybe I should make a complaint about that) and then off the politics forum when I get bored so I do can like the rest there and vent opinions about things that nobody dares say real life but many people sure are thinking.

What do you like best about the forums? What do you dislike the most?
I like how it's the only place, whether in the real or digital world, where I can say so much as a single sentence without being cut off or ignored. It brings out my best conversational skills that I rarely get a chance to exercise in real life due to lack of finding anyone whose interested (or intelligent) enough to comprehend half of what I'm saying. I dislike pointless troll threads and people going there just to advertise shit.

Neat! Whose your favourite forumer?
:iconbenderplz::iconsaysplz:Eh they're all pretty unimpressive

Really? I like them too! What's your favourite plz account?

Tell me, What was your favourite or most memorable forum moment?
Well... I remember being in hysterics when I read some of the comments I saw on a "Strangest ways your pets have died" thread years ago... That poor hamster carelessly placed in front of the air conditioner exhaust vent didn't stand a chance.

If the forum were a fandom, what yaoi/yuri pairing do you think the weeaboo's and fantards would come up with? What would be your favourite forum pairing?
:iconbensonplz::iconsaysplz:Why is this even a question?

Cake Is A Lie?
I never at any point cared enough to spend the few seconds necessary to Google search the source of that dated and unfunny meme.

Aww, that's the end of the meme. Tag three other people to do this meme


Matthew Attard
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Throughout my life I have always been a very visual and creative person. So developing an interest in art was practically in the bag, starting out traditionally for many years as I grew up and then converting to digital since I favoured that more. I've had very little professional training particularly in 2D, much of which I have just picked up through my own self experimentation. I learned some remedial 3D skills from a course though, But I'll always know more about 2D and don't consider myself to be a "true" 3D artist, often my 3D is mixed with 2D for maximum effect.
I take a shine to anything that looks interesting, probably why I see such fascination in the natural world. But I even get inspired by games or fashion etc in regards to character drawings especially, That's where the whole Final fantasy/Japanese love comes in!

I'm usually a hobbyist artist for most of the time as I do not work for any studio's or companies. I do commissioned works as the offers come (I can be e-mailed regarding that) But nothing beats doing art for your own personal enjoyment!

If off-dA viewers wish to contact me regarding commissions, features etc, e-mail me at:

New Rock Boots
Just showi'n off my arrived-today New Rock 1024's. God they make some amazing boots, the materials and attention to detail are top notch :faint: So far I'm impressed (I must admit, a bit of work to get into, but that's half the fun :giggle:)

I just gotta wear these to my next convention :eager:
Another long wait paid off this week. My new pair of New Rock Boots arrived after ordering them back in November!

you didn't respond to my comment on your drawing so I'm here now to re-wish you a very belated Christmas Christmas Tree  and a slightly less-belated Happy New Years :happybounce:
best wishes for the new year :glomp:

I must have missed it (and several others) since Christmas and New Years are always just so damn busy (and exhausting) I'm kinda glad it's over for a while (not that I don't enjoy uploading those, but the timing's always so bad ^^;)

hey priteeboy, there is a user you should look at:… it has a gallery of simple drawings but neat descriptions of kryptids and aliens of many types, including corporeal and non-corporeal aliens, aliens of the four states of matter and others, sentient celestial bodies, alleged "real" aliens, the morphs and aliens based on the four fundamental forces, go to his gallery and check it out.
priteeboy Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Funny how I remember reading about the "real" aliens before. I thought I recognized some of the creatures in his drawings :sherlock:

since summer is coming, look at this Cloud Strife art by mixed-blessing:  www.mixed-blessing.deviantart.… it shows Cloud going to snorkel with Squall, and Cloud's speedos are so short, it might interest you.
