Primary: I do a lot of traditional art and now also digital art, most of which is Pokémon fanart, and a good chunk of that is anthro art. Some feral and other, non-Pokémon things also exist.
Secondary: I used to build a lot of LEGO models, but that has sort of died down in recent months. I do still build from time to time, and I have also been adding custom effects and backgrounds with GIMP for more unique images.
Also: Around the last month of 2011 I had a trial version of Flash, which I used to make a number of digital artworks and also Flash animations. I have also made some non-Flash animations (also known as animated GIFs).

Always remember to be happy!

Colton Emote by WonderSparks So I am from Canada (born here in BC, probably going to die here too). I am British, Irish, Scottish, Polish, and Cree. (Although the last two I prefer not to acknowledge because they come from my father's side)
I have a high-functioning form of Autism, and my memory can be a little crappy sometimes. ^^;

I like to talk, draw, and listen to music (both real music and video game music). However small talk is limited to people I know well.
I am quite a do-it-yourself-er (you will notice several little things on my page that I have made myself :D), and every drawing I make is sketched from scratch; I never reuse sketches. =P
I have been drawing for many years, and up until recently traditional artwork was all I was capable of, but now I have upgraded to full-time full-digital. :la:
Aside from this, my gallery contains some photography and 3D LEGO models, as well as a few Flash animations I made a few years ago and also some video game screenshots.

I am always honest, and I enjoy being positive (despite being rather pessimistic). I also like giving out lots of llamas! :D
Depending on the circumstances, when I give you a llama it might mean:
:bulletgreen:Thank you for the fav and/or watch! :D
:bulletblue:I like your art! :la:
:bulletyellow:Llama 4 Llama! :dummy:
:bulletred:I respect you. :nod:
I do not expect llamas in return, but it is appreciated. :3
Why? I do not know, llamas are fun I guess. Somehow I managed to get a Ninja Llama, though. >w<

Anyways, make yourself at home~ ỚwỚ :J by WonderSparks

If you strike me down now, I will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.
"tl;dr" version at the bottom

So, I uninstalled the Norton antivirus as I was going to, and replaced it with AVG. Still the problem persists.
Which means I was WAY off when I said it was Norton cutting my connection. Thus I feel like a total tool. XP

Today we had the tech support guy from my ISP (Telus, if you happen to live in their service area you will probably know them) come over to see what the problem was.
We ran a quick test (and apparently there was some kind of voltage in the connection? Not sure of the details) and our connection itself is working. Yet my computer continues to randomly disconnect.
A discussion with :iconkoekoek19: suggested the possibility it was my cable causing the problem, so the Telus guy gave me a new one. Nope, the problem persists. (Not that it really surprises me, both the cable and the router are brand-new, which leads to my next point)
Short of the router itself, the only thing left I can think of causing the problems (because NOTHING else in the house has the same connection issues, not wireless or wired, my PS3 and 3DS both work fine and our TV services are fine) is my computer itself. The plug socket or something thereabouts may be damaged or something (this computer was serviced once and once only in the past, plus it has moved houses twice in its lifetime, so there are several possible instances that damage could have arisen) which would explain why it is supposedly being "unplugged" from the network.

Oddly enough my connection has held out for the entirety of my typing this, although when I initially clicked "Write Journal" it crapped out for a moment before coming back. (Not that it would have stopped my typing it, only if it happens while I am submitting it; I will copy the journal to Notepad to prevent losing all of this!)
So quite honestly I am dumbfounded. No idea if the problem has been even remotely solved, but I assume something (ah, there it goes) could be fixed. I have been meaning to take this hunk of junk in for a checkup anyways, so this would be a good opportunity to have its network socket inspected I think.

For now I will just resume my normal activities to see if the frequency has died down sufficiently to play MWO (there it goes again) without desyncing every five seconds. :giggle:
Hopefully Skype will be easier to use as well, but yeah. The tech support has done everything it can to guarantee optimal performance, now it is up to the computer itself (unless perhaps it is just the plug on the router is borked for some reason, I will test that next) to prove whether it will work well enough or need repair.

I would rather not spend a ton of money fixing it if I do not have to, and if the bill is high enough frankly I will just buy a new, custom computer (as opposed to the off-the-shelf type I bought originally before getting a new motherboard, power supply, graphics card. and computer casing (as the old one was too small for the new parts) because it was not nearly good enough for MWO) because that way it will be better optimized to my needs. :dummy:


My computer may be the source of my connectivity issues. New stuff may be needed to keep my connection steady. Whatever must be done will be done, regardless of cost*.

*If killing a hacker or something of the sort is required, then I am "Shit outta luck" as they say.

Aside from moving? Pretty good, I guess. Just unhappy that I have not been able to draw as much lately. >w>
