Somewhere Over the Rainbow by DecaffeinatedGeorgie

This piece of beautiful artwork is really well done. The lighting is just right, and the colors really make it stand out and shine. The...




Well, I'm sure we can fit a Dwarf with everyone, even those who are not short.
Tue May 26, 2015, 5:23 PM
What Dwarf would I be? I be Sneezy, due to these allergies... :XD:
Mon May 25, 2015, 5:24 PM
You should audition for Snow White and the Seven Dwarves! :D ...Too much?
Mon May 25, 2015, 4:24 PM
I'm 5'2. I'm the shortest of the gang. XD
Sun May 24, 2015, 6:48 PM
What gave it away? ;p
Fri May 22, 2015, 1:52 PM
Guess I'm the short man, huh?
Thu May 21, 2015, 4:16 PM
Well, I'm surrounded by a bunch of perverts, two orangutans, quite a few Survivor freaks, a short man, and people way too into their OC's. ...Eh, I guess I could do worse, right? ;p

Well, I'm glad there are other people in the world who don't like having their picture taken. Also, you and Hannah; #relationshipgoals
Thu May 14, 2015, 11:08 PM
Nah, Hannah doesn't either. She's not fond of getting her picture taken, but I love her anyway. =D
Thu May 14, 2015, 9:20 PM
Is it just me, or am I the only one who doesn't like to smile in pictures?
Thu May 14, 2015, 5:45 PM
Well, this idea was originally done by MrEnter, but I saw this on Asujoll's Journals as I was going through his older ones like the creep I am because this is what I do at 1:15 at night EST. I even stole the tile. Not sorry; this is the internet, after all. Regardless, I thought it'd be fun, and plus, I love Pokémon, so what was stopping me from doing this? Oh right, the format... Anyway, I guess I should say I won't use Legendaries nor will I use repeat Pokémon because I could easily do such a thing.

Favorite Pokemon: Wooper. If you didn't know this, please refer to my main page.
Least Favorite Pokemon: Dewgong. I don't know why this thing gave me trouble back in the first generation, but I never forgot...

Best Pokemon with Worst Design: Azumarill's design is very basic and kind of derpy, but it's apparently this great force.
Worst Pokemon with Best Design: Druddigon has a great design, but is outclassed by almost every other Dragon-Type out there.

Favorite Type: Electric (Since Day 1!)
Least Favorite Type: Ice (Formerly Poison until Fairy became a thing)

Favorite Normal Type: Jigglypuff. One of my Smash Mains, Jigglypuff is just a Pokémon I have a deep connection to.
Least Favorite Normal Type: Slaking

Favorite Fighting Type: Hawlucha, mostly because my brother struggled against this thing with Korrina and it's funny to me.
Least Favorite Fighting Type: Emboar. Please no more Fire/Fighting starters.

Favorite Flying Type: Swellow
Least Favorite Flying Type: Farfetch'd

Favorite Poison Type: Venusaur. Poison is so freaking hard to use for me.
Least Favorite Poison Type: Gulpin

Favorite Ground Type: Camerupt
Least Favorite Ground Type: Sandslash

Favorite Rock Type: Aurorus. the only Fossil I've used in-game. I know it's not great, but I still like using it.
Least Favorite Rock Type: Graveler

Favorite Bug Type: Heracross
Least Favorite Bug Type: Wormadam. Why does this thing have three forms? They all suck.

Favorite Ghost Type: Gengar
Least Favorite Ghost Type: Duskull

Favorite Steel Type: Doublade
Least Favorite Steel Type: Klang. Eh, of the line it's design is the least appealing to me.

Favorite Fire Type: Talonflame. Predictable choice is predictable. Suck it.
Least Favorite Fire Type: Slugma

Favorite Water Type: Frogadier. Nope, Greninja is not my favorite of the line; it's Frogadier.
Least Favorite Water Type: Surskit. I love its typing, but its movepool and stats and evolution kill it for me.

Favorite Grass Type: Breloom. The only Pokémon to be used in every playthrough I've gone through in Hoenn.
Least Favorite Grass Type: Grovyle

Favorite Electric Type: Magnezone
Least Favorite Electric Type: Tynamo. At least Pichu has a movepool with some variety.

Favorite Psychic Type: Gardevoir, and no it's not because it's the waifu. (God, I don't like that term at all...) It's just really useful.
Least Favorite Psychic Type: Claydol, these are annoying as all hell.

Favorite Ice Type: Lapras, even if it's no longer good with Stealth Rock.
Least Favorite Ice Type: Avelugg

Favorite Dragon Type: Goodra
Least Favorite Dragon Type: Vibrava

Favorite Dark Type: Tyranitar
Least Favorite Dark Type: Purrloin. Eh, it's just not for me, I guess.

Favorite Fairy Type: Swirlix
Least Favorite Fairy Type: Klefki, aka the bane of my existence trying to learn how to play competitive.

Best Mega Evolution: Lopunny because it actually made an otherwise totally overlooked Pokémon completely viable. That, and it's no longer sexualized, so that's nice.
Worst Mega Evolution: Charizard because this overrated Pokémon really needed TWO Megas. What about the Johto starters? Even if I don't care for the region, still!

Most Underrated Pokemon: Butterfree. This thing is actually fairly useful in Kanto, especially against Bruno. Not that he wasn't already a joke to begin with...
Most Overrated Pokemon: Genesect. I just don't get the appeal. Maybe I'm missing something here...

Some Favorites That Didn't Make it: I guess I'll go with Jirachi. It's my favorite Legendary, and I wish I didn't have to transfer from the fourth generation just to get it in my Y and Alpha Sapphire versions.
  • Mood: Joy
  • Listening to: Michael Jackson
  • Reading: Total Drama Alpha Party
  • Watching: Gurren Lagann
  • Playing: Pokémon Shuffle
  • Eating: Cheeseburgers
  • Drinking: Lemon Iced Tea

Well, after I saw both :iconbaconbaka: and :iconshadow326: do this little Tag, I figured I may as well take my own chances and do this for the hell of it. I'm bored, honestly.

Your first OC ever?

Technically the answer should be Cornelius (Cory), but it was more like Roderick (Rory) came first, and then Cory, and then Zander (when he was Randy). Everyone else kind of came as I went along to be honest. Note that Cory, Rory, and Zander themselves were made back in like late-2012.

Do you have a personal favorite among your OCs?

No. How could one expect me to choose between all of my babies? To make me choose is heartless.

A character you rarely talk about?

Probably some of my newer OC's (Brent, Linda, Felicia, and Umed) as I've yet to fully find something for them. It's getting there slowly. (:iconshu-no-kurohi: has taken them into something, so there's progress~!)

If you could make only one of your OCs popular/known, who would it be?

I'm not sure if I can choose…

Two OCs of yours that look alike despite not being related?

Brent and Rory look like palette swapped versions of each other. My hand drawings should differentiate them a bit.

Are your OCs part of any story or stories?

Harrison (Harry) was recently featured in Total Drama Revenge Do-Over by :iconcogreen20:. Check it out as it's seriously one of the best story series to feature mostly canon characters ever. (There are a few OC's in every season, but every canon character is used. Also, the OC's are pretty well done if I do say so myself, and I do!)

Do you RP as any of your OCs? If you do, introduce one of your RP OCs here!

I would in theory RP as all of my normal OC's, but I have yet to do so, so some of them still have their speech patterns up in the air.

Would you ever be willing to give any of your OCs to someone else?

If I were to suddenly disappear from DA or from life one day, I would totally find a someone I could trust to take care of my babies for me and do them justice.

Introduce an OC with a complicated design?

I guess Harry's new jacket is kind of complex, but really, I try to keep my designs relatively low-key when making OC's. Things are a bit more realistic that way, though some of their hairstyles are not so low-key.

Is there any OC of yours you could describe as a "sunshine"?

If you mean someone who tends to be happy and positive, then definitely Rory. I can't think of anyone who'd better fit that description.

Name an OC that isn't yours but who you like a lot

I would probably have to go with Bacon's thing and make a separate Journal as I've seen loads of OC's, man. Loads of them...

Do you have any troublemaker OCs?

Zander's a prankster, Harry's a bit of a rebel, Rory has no sense of limits at times, and a lot of my OC's can be a bit bad when angry. What the hell do you think the answer is?

Introduce an OC with a tragic backstory

I don't have any. I have something that are unfortunate, but they don't impact my OC's on a typical day-to-day basis. For the most part, their backstories are just normal for them, with a few exceptions.

Do you like to talk about your OCs with other people?

It depends. Some people gush about some of my OC's, and the attention always makes me blush, so I on occasion divert attention back onto their own amazing OC's.

Which one of your OCs would be the best at biology (school subject)?

Natalie and Zander would be best at biology. The animal lovers in them say so. they would also bond over their love of animals, so there's that as well. That, and Zander's crush on her.

Any OC crackships?

I ship Cory/Xerxes :iconm-pen:'s OC, and I know people ship Patricia/Sachiko (You all know who you are...), but honestly, my OC's aren't crackshipped too often.

Introduce an OC that means a lot to you (and explain why)

I think all my OC's in some small way have some value to me. I try and put a little bit of myself into each OC, or rather allow myself to fit into their mind frame so I can try and make them stand out amongst each other a bit.

Do any of your OCs sing? If they sing, care to share more details (headcanon voice, what kind of songs they like etc)?

Harrison can sing, but he'll never admit to such a fact. He's too prideful. Outside of him, probably Lucas, Natalie or Emerald honestly. I can see them singing. All of my OC's can at least hold a note to some capacity though. It's not terribly hard to master.

Your most artistic OC

Ichigo is by far my most artistic OC. She draws for fun (and eventually a living), and she's decked out a few tattoos she came up with.

Introduce OC that has changed from your first idea concerning what the character would be like?

None of my OC's have actually changed too much. The only one who has gone through a bit of an overhaul is Sachiko, and even she's not 100% finalized with everything yet. Also, there are some things most people don't know about my OC's.

If you could meet one OC of yours, who would it be and why?

I'd want to meet Woody honestly. I think it'd be nice to possibly have a little brother for a day as I've always wondered what it's like to have a little brother and not just be the little brother.

The OC that resembles you the most (same hobby, height, shared like/dislike for something etc?)

Cornelius is definitely most like my design-wise, but my personality is more of a mix between Harrison and Roderick. (Explains why they're friends, doesn't it?)

Your most dangerous OC?

I guess it depends on the situation. Normally Harry or Brent would be the most dangerous as they are the strongest, but Aaron can get pretty bad when mad, and Cory and Lucas can be protective over Rory and Natalie respectively. Rory mad, however, is something I don't think the world is ready for ever.

Which one of your OCs would go investigate an abandoned house at night without telling anyone they're going?

Zander because he has "dumb horror movie protagonist" written all over him. Rory would be stopped by Cory before he even thought about taking a step, though Ichgio loves adventures, so she'd probably go in with Zander and investigate.

Which one of your OCs would most likely have a secret stuffed animal collection?

I would say Ichigo has a bunch of Pokémon plush toys, but that's expected, so I can see Rory having a moderate collection due to Ichigo giving him a few over time.

Which one of your OCs would be the most suitable horror game protagonist and why?

I'd say probably Harrison because while he could show fear, he'd try and use his calm head to figure out how to best get out of the situation. Plus, he's snarky, and I feel like most horror games have some level of snark to them even if it's totally inappropriate at times.

Do you have any twin characters?

Cornelius and Roderick aren't blood twins, but they're so close in age and are so close that they're twins in spirit. that, and it's a lot faster to type "twins" than "step-brothers".

Any sibling characters?

Too many to list, but I'll try to anyway. (This is the last time I make siblings... I say knowing I won't stop.) There's Cory and Rory and Rory's older sister who has yet to be made, Emerald and Woody, Xavier and Zander, Brent, Linda, and Felicia, and Harrison has a little sister that has yet to be made. Also, Aaron and Mindy might not be siblings, but they treat each other like they are.

Do you have OC pairs where the other part belongs to someone else (siblings, lovers, friends etc)?

Does this satisfy this question?

:iconm-pen: Aaron and Xerxes (Cousins), Cory and Xerxes (AU [?] boyfriends)

:iconbaconbaka: Tina and Ichigo (Friends), Luka and Harrison (Cousins), Isaac and Winston (Friends)

Introduce an OC who is not quite human

I have my Icarus. He hasn't had much done with him yet, but I do know who might be closely related to him as far as friends go...

Which one of your OCs would be the best dancer?

I would think Cory would be best at ballroom dancing, but he'd flub up every other type. I guess overall it would be him still though.

Any fond memories linked to your characters? Feel free to share!

Not really... I don't really have any OC's that are that old.

Has anyone drawn fanart of your OCs? If yes, maybe show a picture or two here (remember sources & permissions!)

A few people have, but not too many. I don't really ask for drawings, so most of them are just surprises to me.

Do you have any certain type when you create your OCs? Do you tend to favour some certain traits or looks? It's time to confess

I don't really have any one thing I lean towards. I mean, I probably have too many brunettes, but that's also realistic, so that's not really an issue. I don't think...

I'll tag :iconcragmiteblaster: and :icondarkshockbro: to do this. Cragmite because he has so many OC's being the OC King that his answers will be fun to see, and DarkShockBro because I want (read: need) to know more about his OC's.

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.



I'm thinking about making a few commentaries on different things pertaining to Total Drama (seasons, characters, etc.) Is anyone interested in seeing such from me? 

12 deviants said Yes (Suggest someone down below.)
2 deviants said I Don't Know (Really, I don't give a damn.)
No deviants said No (Keep your opinions to yourself.)
