Brent Sussman by AnOptimisticSnarker
Brent Sussman
Name: Brent Sussman

Birthday: December 11

Hair Color/Style: Short dirty blonde hair spiked in the front and left side

Eye Color: Hazel

Everyday Outfit: A green and yellow football jersey with a white number 4 on it over a white t-shirt, green jeans cuffed at the bottom, camo armbands, and green and white sneakers

Casual Outfit: A black tuxedo with a green tie, black slacks, black dress shoes, and a green handkerchief in his tuxedo pocket

Age: 17

Sexuality: Straight

Likes: Football, the military, his dogtags, History class, cooking, the color teal, and keeping up with his physical health

Dislikes: People who act entitled, Precalculus class, traitors, his inability to swim, birds, cinnamon, and boys who flirt with his sister

Personality: Will come later when it is finished.


And here's the next OC's. I'm submitting back to back so I can save a few seconds. Also, I wanted to do this at least once with my PM. Anyway, I wasn't originally going to even make him, but since :iconbaconbaka: added him into the oneshot I wrote, I figured I could at least expand on him some. So this is what happens when I don't let a one-off character stay one-off. I'm honestly tempted to write a long-running series for my OC's now though. Not Total Drama though; still not quite ready to do that on my own yet. Yes, I said ON MY OWN. ;)

Anyway, his anime name is Takeshi Sasaki. If anyone wants to know why my OC's have anime names, it's because I really envision them more like anime characters. That's it.
Linda Sussman by AnOptimisticSnarker
Linda Sussman
Name: Linda Sussman

Birthday: March 31

Hair Color/Style: Short neck-length blonde hair with two bangs framing her face

Eye Color: Hazel

Everyday Outfit: An army-green tee shirt with white sleeves and the word 'ARMY' on it, brown jeans tucked into white socks, and brown boots

Casual Outfit: A long blue dress with navy flats, a small aqua pin in her hair, and a blue rose corsage

Age: 15

Sexuality: Straight

Likes: Her lucky boots, baseball, training for the military, getting tickled (only by people she knows), PE class, the color scarlet, and monster trucks

Dislikes: Her weak immune system, her brother's over-protectiveness at times, having an asthma attack, being touched by people she doesn't know, spiders, milkshakes, and dust

Personality: Will come later once I actually finish it.


Well, this is something I haven't done in a while. It almost feels surreal to submit someone new. Anyway, this is Linda. She was the product of an idea by :iconcragmiteblaster:. Her bio will explain more once it comes out, but for now, just know that it was his idea to make her. I like the way she looks, even if her shirt looks odd. (I need to find a better way to make clothes...) Also, female anatomy is really hard to pull off by the way.

Her anime name is Chiyoko Sasaki. I ran out of girl names, so I just went with that one. Eh, you win some, you lose some I suppose.

I was just tagged by :iconshadow326:. Thank you Nick. Remind me to repay the favor later.

EDIT: I have added question from :iconasujoll: for the hell of it. They were more interesting.

1. You must posts these rules.

2. Each person has to share 10 things about them.

3. Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people you tag will have to answer.

4. Choose 10 people and put their icons on your journal.

5. Go to their page to inform them they are tagged (we have mentions now, using that)

6. Not something like " you are tagged if you read that".

7. You have to legitimately tag 10 people.

8. No tag-backs.

9. You can't say that you don't do tags.


Ten more facts about me (as if I haven't revealed enough to you people):
1. I have a really bad habit of repressing all my emotions inside me. I don't let my anger or sadness out enough, and sometimes it affects my mood or health. I should work on that, but I hate people worrying about me.

2. Following Number 1, I keep too many secrets from people. Even my closest friends don't know about half the things I'm going through in my life. I'm too damn introverted for my own good.

3. I have this thing about people touching me; don't. I hate random touching from anyone, and more often than not I'm just going to get pissed at whoever is doing it.

4. I have never dated before. I keep telling people I'm straight, but as far as I know, I don't know what the hell I like. I feel like I'm going to end up experimenting when I start dating to see what I like. I mean, it'll probably still be just girls, but being open is a good thing, right?

5. I'm underweight. I have always been underweight, and in my early teen years it was a problem for me as I would get really weak if I skipped even one meal. I'm a little better now, but I'm still a little underweight.

6. I do believe in some form of magic. I feel like some of the things that happen in life just can't be explained through science alone. I also feel I should mention that I do hear voices in my head. I'm not weird, just a little clairvoyant.

7. As an anime fan, I don't really hate 4Kids. Yes, some of their dubs were not the best, but I feel like people harp on them over what they did wrong, and they never talk about what they did right. Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh's animes probably wouldn't be as popular as they are today if it wasn't for 4Kids dubbing them. Also, Ultimate Muscle was their best dub ever. I won't let you tell me otherwise; I won't hear it.

8. I have no filter when it comes to what I say. I really just don't have a filter with anything really. I can read of hear anything and it probably won't bother me too much in the long run. Who has time to care about being politically correct on the internet anyway?

9. I don't watch much TV these days. With the internet having so many options, I just find it unnecessary to go watch a TV most of the time. Besides, I don't watch 90% of what airs on TV, so I don't have any reason to turn one on ever.

10. I can be really profound with my views sometimes. It's funny how I don't like English and grammar, yet I can make something so simple sound so philosophical. It's an odd gift, but I'm fine with it.

The Questions Shadow Asked:
1. Favorite cartoon show?

I don't really have one. I know it's a cop-out, but dammit, I'm allowed to have one.

2. If you could be in the universe of your favorite thing from any form of media, but you had to kill your favorite character from it, would you do it?

Hell no! I would sooner eat my own legs before killing anyone else.

3. What is your view on morality in fiction?

Morality in fiction is honestly to me such a big farce. I mean, morality as a whole can be kind of subjective at times, so something that is moral to one person may be immoral to another. Why bother with morality when you can just make people act like people. That's way more interesting to me than forcing people into "hero" or "villain" roles in stories.

4. Ps4, XBone, or WiiU?

I don't any of these, but personally, as long as it isn't the XBone, I'll be fine. Sorry, but the XBone doesn't look as appealing to me as the other two. It does help that they screwed up their conference about it.

5. Anything you like that could be considered "So bad, it's good"?

I personally like the Digimon Movie. I know it's really bad, but it had this charm to it that I can't ignore. I guess it helps I've seen it so many times it's insane.

6. If you could make any kind of weapon, what would it be?

I want the kind of bow Pit from Kid Icarus uses in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. A long range weapon I can also use close range? I'll take it! I just need to learn how to use a bow first.

7. Say you were a fictional character. Would you be the hero, the villain, an anti-hero vigilante, or a neutral side character?

I prefer to be a neutral side character myself. I don't really like conflict at all, and I'm not one for being in the limelight, so I'm fine with being off to the side. Plus, being neutral means I can do anything without having to be look down upon for breaking my character role.

8. What kind of animal would you want to try to eat? Has to be something you wouldn't normally eat.

My first answer would have been rabbit, but I've had rabbits before, and they are delicious. I'm going to have to go with frogs; let's hope I'm not served a poisonous variety.

9. Favorite genre of video game?

Platformers. Little known fact about me, once I learn the controls of a platformer, I can generally abuse the hell out of the mechanics to do some pretty cool stuff. Not glitchy things, but time consuming things that could otherwise not be done.

10. What's your opinion on the human race as a whole?

Humans can be some of the most fucked up beings on the face of planet Earth. I can't even tell you how many times I've seen some story or article in the news and I wanted to kick whoever did the crime in the face. That said, there are also quite a few really generous, awesome-sauce people in the world who would give up their own happiness for someone else. Those people give me hope that humanity isn't all bad and terrible.

The Questions Asujoll Asked in a Tagged Journal I don't Have to Do, but I Want to Do.
1. What's your favorite soda?

Orange Soda is the best, but I also like Grape, Dr. Pepper, and Sierra Mist.

2. Would you kill someone if you felt it was justified?

My first answer would be hell naw, but if someone hurt someone I cared about, I would kill them and hide the body in the woods. I know how to navigate woods, so your body would never be found. EVER.

3. Have you ever drawn/written/etc. anything pornographic?

I've written risque things, but nothing like porn or even full-on sex. The only person to actually see the risque things I've written is :iconcragmiteblaster:, and that's only because he's the only person who asks for me to write things for him.

4. Have you ever made virtual versions of fictional characters just so they could be in a relationship?

I can't say I ever have. Maybe when I get Tomodachi Life, I'll actually go and do that. Lord help me if two of the Koopalings hook-up though. That's squicky seeing how they (at least in the past) are all siblings.

5. Who do you play as in Mario Kart?

Yoshi, Birdo, Toad, and Toadette, with Lemmy Koopa soon to be added to my roster.

6. What's your opinion on Disney's Frozen?

I like it, but it's not my favorite Disney movie as that would go to Tangled. I like Frozen enough, but I wish people would stop talking about it now. It's too overrated, and it's not even the best Disney movie to me.

7. Who is best pony?

Fluttershy. I'm not even a Brony, but she's my favorite from the show. I also really like Rainbow Dash and Applejack. really, all of the Mane 6 are good in their own way. :nod:

8. What's a show/movie/game/etc. that you wish more people knew about?

I do wish more people knew about Ultimate Muscle. For such a funny anime parodying wrestling, it doesn't seem like people talk about it enough.

9. Have you ever looked past a character's worst qualities simply because they were attractive?

I can honestly say I probably have in the past, but no examples really come to mind off the top of my head. Let's be real though, who hasn't done this even once?

10. What does the fox say?

The fox wants everyone to stop asking it what it says. The next person to ask it what does it say is going to be bitten and they will contract rabies in some way. I personally don't know, or give any sort of fuck about, what the fox says, but foxes are no longer amused. Also, to the citizens in my town, please stop running them over.

My Questions for Everyone:

1. Favorite anime? If you don't watch anime, just name your favorite cartoon. If you don't watch either, just name your favorite show.

2. This question is legit serious. What is your favorite Pokémon or Pokémon Type?

3. What video game series do you find to be so completely overrated?

4. Who is going to be the person you play as the most in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS?

5. How would you react if we happened to meet each other in real life?

6. If you could perform magic, what would be the first spell you cast?

7. What kind of role do you think you fit into: hero, villain, anti-hero/anti-villain, or neutral?

8. What is your favorite internet meme?

9. Since I clearly didn't have enough with Number 3, what is one thing you hate that everyone else seems to love?

10. Do you like waffles? Do you like pancakes? Do you like French toast? Do you get the reference?

A Life Update

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 8, 2014, 7:42 AM

Yeah, here's something I haven't done in a while even though I should have. Whoops! Anyway, I am here to tell you guys about what's been going on in my life these past few weeks. I'm not going to lie, it's been rough in my personal life. I don't want any pity from any one though; that's not my style at all. You are free to ask, but please note that I might not tell you everything or even anything depending on what you ask in the first place.

Anyway, first, let me start off with my school schedule. I am really lucky that I have two online classes as that means I only have to go to school Mondays and Tuesdays. On one hand, that means my school weeks are ungodly short and you all should be jealous. On the other hand, online classes demand more time for them, so if I'm not as active in the next few weeks, please understand that is probably why. Still, only two-day school weeks! Yeah, I probably shouldn't gloat like that as it's rude...

The next topic is requests. I am not longer taking any requests for right now as I have enough on my plate. I have one private oneshot to finish, two or three pictures I need to get done, and two rankings for two different fanfics I need to get accomplished. Either way, no more requests. I am still going to draw for me though as I feel I don't focus enough on what I want to do. Requests will be up when they are up. Sorry, but that's just the way it is.

The lat thing I wanted to bring up is just the fact I am going to try and be a bit faster with my work. I know I can be really slow about it, but I want to be better so that you guys can depend on me more as I don't want to seem as unreliable and a freeloader. To be fair though, I don't ask anyone for anything really ever. I think I've requested a total of three things in 8-9 months on DA, so yeah.

Anyway, this was the basic jist of what I wanted to get up with my Journal. Thank you all, and I hope you all have such a wonderful day you just don't know what to do with all the positivity. :)

P.S. I am totally getting Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS the day it comes out. I've been saving for it, and my efforts ave paid off. Also, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will be bought for me as well. If/When I get Wi-Fi for my 3DS, anyone who wants to fight can challenge me. I'll be waiting if it does happen. This Yoshi Journal skin is awesome by the way.

  • Listening to: Skrillex

Journal History


AnOptimisticSnarker's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Hey, everyone I'm AnOptimisticSnarker, but you guys can call me Yoshi if you want. It isn't my real name, but you can call me it.

Anyway, I've finally joined this site and I can't wait to put out some stuff on the shows and fanfics I love! If you can't tell by my Favorites page, I have the STRANGEST tastes in shows EVER! There is no rhyme or reason as for why I like shows and stuff, all I know is I like 'em.

I hope to have a great time on this site and to meet some awesome people too! Well, see ya'!

P.S. My numerous OC's will pop in my writings and drawings on occasion. Please don't mind them, they won't bite. (Well, some of them might if provoked...)

My DeviantArt Section. This is here because it's about damn time I put something here like this.

I only do requests for friends. And by friends I mean we need to have talked a considerable amount.

One day I would love to commission my works for others to enjoy. Until then, I'm content just doing things for friends.

Ten Re-Done Facts About Me
1. I am African American. I know I don't come off as such, but I am.
2. I am extremely shy to a complete fault. Again, I don't come off as such, but it's true.
3. My favorite color is yellow. Yes, bright and sunny yellow.
4. I can be a bit of a pervert. I do know when and when not to let it out though.
5. I really don't ask for a lot. I know I could ask for a request every so often, but I don't.
6. I can be very chill with people, but I don't tolerate bullies/people attacking my friends.
7. I am not the best writer in the world. I know I need work, but I'm getting there.
8. My favorite Pokémon is Wooper. It's so cute and hug-able despite being slimy.
9. The idea of having sex both grosses me out and scares me immensely.
10. I am a Nostalgia Critic and Linkara fan. Not a really big one, but I'm getting there.

Hey man, what you've been up to lately?
AnOptimisticSnarker Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm fine dude. Just relaxing right now.

How are you doing?
xebla Featured By Owner 1 day ago
I was practicing my English Grammars to improve my writing for the sake of my stories.

Reading new chapters of Brains vs. Brawns and Total Drama Revenge Do Over.

Last Saturday, I went to see The Maze Runner. It was cool and got my adrenaline pumped! One of my favourite films to see at the cinema! :D
AnOptimisticSnarker Featured By Owner 11 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I mean, it's not terrible if that's what you're thinking. Maybe a few added letters here and there, but it's not like you're mistaking "They're", "Their", and "There".

The new TDRDO chapter was AMAZING~! No spoilers, but I loved it. :D

Oh man, that sounds freaking awesome! I'm glad you had fun at the movies. It sounds like it was a really great movie. :)

So, any idea when you'll submit that army girl OC I suggested to you a few weeks back?
AnOptimisticSnarker Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
I do need to finish her bio. I mean, I've drawn her up; I just need to finish that. Honestly though, I might submit her and Brent before their bios are done and add them in later.
