Want to screenname change

Mon Aug 31, 2015, 12:10 AM
I'm kinda tired of the "Fireshrike" name.  It's not very interesting, even though I thought it sounded cool when I came up with it.  I originally had a different name in mind back before I had a dA, when having a dA account was an aspiration (on the first social website I was on, having a dA made you cool), that not only sounds a lot cooler but actually holds meaning.  My Tumblr buddies will be familiar with it, and some of my long-time friends might recognize the names - "Akita-Covethunder".

Explanation: 5 years ago, back in the good 'ol year of 2010, I had a crazy Warriors fancomic on the official forums.  It was called Guardian of the Clans, and had to be one of the most unbelievable comics in existence and was almost completely unrelated to the actual thing it was supposedly a fancomic of.  Seriously, the Warriors world served as a basic building block, nothing more.  There were elemental dragons and kitties in space.  By the end of the comic the forest had been set on fire, a massive hole had been ripped through the ground to reveal an underground city, and there was a dead 300-foot-long dragon or two lying about.  It was amazing.

Anyways, Covethunder was a normal WindClan cat who turned out to be not-so-normal.  In fact, he was an incredibly powerful character whose arrival had been awaited for centuries.  But of course he was not too happy about it, considering that in order to find out he had to fall into a deep cave system completely unknown to the normal kitties, become culture-shocked by the incredible underground city he woke up into, and be greeted by winged cats standing on their hind legs and animals that he never even knew existed.  Akita was his clone - the dark forces that hated the people of the city wanted their own version of Covethunder, who would fight as their leader...while secretly being under their control. 

Even though that comic's long dead I still find myself really in love with it? like the name Akita-Covethunder.  It sounds great and has a lot of personal meaning to it.

I just want to know what you guys would think if I changed my screenname to Akita-Covethunder.  I doubt I'd actually regret it but I'm having a hard time convincing myself of that.

Can you tell I'm still really in love with the story??  I just didn't know how to finish it, since there was one massive plot hole that I could never figure out how to fill, and I thought I would end up never seeing it all the way through (which I think was actually untrue, since whenever I think about it I still get really excited.  Honestly it was a great story, for all its unbelievability....).

Hello there! Thanks for taking the time to visit my page! You can call me Shadow.

I mostly do digital stuff. Fan art, animals, sometimes OCs, that's basically it. Not a lot of super interesting, mind-blowing-composition-y, epic battle-type stuff. In the future you may see more anthros and OCs + original work.

Interests include: dragons, animals in general, Shingeki no Kyojin, A:tLA, TLoZ, and more recently, Homestuck.

:bulletred:Point Commissions: OPEN! Prices are here.
:bulletred:Requests: Depends. Sketches and simple character art is plausible, anything else is highly unlikely.

I'm sorry, but I have to bring up an issue with you that has been bothering me quite a bit. Despite my efforts, I am no longer able to just let this go by unsaid. You need to change- the fact that there is no "I support Fireshrike" stamp. It is mandatory for my page to be a happy place. I hope you can understand how serious of an issue this is, and I expect it will be fixed soon. Thank you, and have a nice day.

...this scared me so much at first, haha.  I was afraid I'd done something wrong.  But then I hadn't! XD

Thank you. :D

Eh, I would feel a little weird if I made it myself, but you're free to make one if you want!

your art is adnjaffdsnjnfs you have such a clean style and the way you draw horses reminds me of Spirit which was my childhood and I need your art in my life-

Could I order an icon/small square portrait commission of my character, Birchwhisker? I'm not exactly sure on what the background should be- something foresty, maybe, in shades of green to match his eyes? And his expression generally calm, maybe wistfully sad? He was alone for many years, wandering with no place to call home. 
Fireshrike Featured By Owner May 28, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Wow, what a compliment!  Thank you so much!

A woodsy sort of background would look amazing with that character.  I can certainly do that for you, but it may be a few weeks before I have the time to complete it.  I'm very busy right now and have a lot of important deadlines I'm trying to meet.  So it may be a couple of weeks before I can finish any sort of commission right now.  If that's okay with you, then I'd love to.  I'm intrigued by your vision and I'm getting some good creative imagery from your description.
Jk-Howling Featured By Owner May 28, 2015
I understand, and don't mind in the slightest! So long as you don't forget. I've had that happen before, and it's never fun D:
Definitely looking forward to it, though. Do you want me to send the points before or after its completion? I'm fine with either ^^ 
Fireshrike Featured By Owner May 28, 2015  Student Digital Artist
I'll try.  If in two weeks there's been nothing from me, just send me a note.  That way, if I've forgotten, it'll serve as a reminder.

I'd prefer if you send the points afterwards.  I like doing it that way because in the chance that I do forget to fill out the commission or something else goes wrong, there isn't any money-related confusion to sort through.
