Commissions, anybirdie? fav.me/d703k4u :iconyaaayplz:

Some things about me:
-I'm 14
-As you can see, I like birds and learning about them, things like ornithology, aviculture, etc.
-Pokemon! I do competitive battling a lot... The games are too easy sometimes. In my most recent endeavor, I could have taken on the elite four at the second gym.
-I eat anything unhealthy.
-I have an almost unnaturally high heart rate
-I do kendo
-While I used to read about birds a LOT, but now I've been doing it less, unfortunately, I've gotten rusty on my scientific names, IDing species from a certain group (Ex. amazon parrots, hybrid macaws) :/
-by nature, I am secretive. I'm not going to elaborate on that... Make of it what you will, but keep in mind there's more to everyone than meets the eye.

:iconsnowflakeplz::iconsnowflakeplz::iconsnowflakeplz::iconsnowflakeplz:
PLEASE NOTE: I am the sole citizen of Antarctica, and thus the entire government as well (I run a dictatorship). I also represent the Antarctican Department of Execution, and I have ALL OF YOU on my list. No need to worry, I have my torture machines ready to go.
I am a diplomat in the United States at the moment.

Things I've said that I believe in
-I believe it's always beneficial to understand the inner workings of people as a whole, whether your intentions are to befriend or murder them, knowing what makes people click and how they think will prove to be quite valuable.
-If there comes a time when I lose the ability to think clearly and see things for what they are, I don't think I would be able to live. It's important to me that I am provided with the purest raw source as possible so that I may give a fair analysis
-In every joke, in every delusional statement, there is a grain of truth, however small and however tainted by whatever we perceive.
-So many things are subjective. There are rarely clear cut answers, if ever.



Quotes I like
"It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring."
"Life asked death- "Why do so many people fear you?" Death responded- "Because you are a beautiful lie, and I am the painful truth."
"Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored."
"Human beings are the only creatures on the earth that claim a God & the only living thing that behaves like it hasn't got one."
"There comes a time in life when gems cease to sparkle and gold loses its allure"


:iconankylosaurornis: :icontoastedpotatoes: :icontashek87: :iconstartrekrecruit: and :iconmtorchic: go to my school. MUAHAHAHAHA! Malicious hand rubbing? I think yes.







Pikachu
Your spirit pokemon is Pikachu! Your spirit pokemon has chosen to guide you as you are hardy by nature and you do what's in good nature and you tend to hate Racism, Sexism, Homophobia and animal cruelty. You are a very smart person and have brilliant company. Pikachu will help you move on and give you courage to stand up for what is right and will help you remain a positive, bright person.
So before I joined, I had discovered dA, but got the impression that it was almost exclusively for selling prints :P
A little while later, Ankylosaurornis on her other account convinced me that that was not the case, so I joined as well. I had been doing art semi-seriously for a little while beforehand.
Really old stuff from before I joined dA (2010) Old drawings from 2010 by MagicBirdie
Some of my first (aft) uploads:
Hedge Sparrow feeding baby Cuckoo by MagicBirdieOsprey Fledgling! by MagicBirdieOddly Colored Peregrine Falcon Close-Up by MagicBirdieCliff Swallow by MagicBirdie
I made some acquaintances, but most of them haven't been on dA in a long time :(
I also had some photography, and my one literature deviation:  DismalWrinkled flower, yellowed leaves.
Through the air, its misery weaves.
Out the window, no sun shines.
On the streets stand mossy signs.
Through the trees, the clouds may part,
To show a world so far apart,
But it only glows a dimming light,
And only grey is in the sight.
The storm, though but a shallow stream,
Adds much misery to the scene.
In the air sing lonely birds,
With sad sad songs and empty words.
We are here in this dismal world,
As the sad story of life unfurled.
Then, at last, we go out the door,
We think, is this what we're living for?
-Qingqing Yang
         (I don't upload the majority of the things I write :P )
My pencil art then got somewhat better
American Kestrel by MagicBirdieToothless is curious by MagicBirdieGalah Chickie by MagicBirdieRed Knots by MagicBirdieGrey Fox (sketch) by MagicBirdieSir Not a Bird by MagicBirdieAplomado Falcon by MagicBirdie
And there was that painting I spent an eternity on (only to find it looked like they were mating..)
Thou Shalt Be Beheaded! by MagicBirdie

Misc. other stuff: Mola 'keet by MagicBirdieCeltic knots by MagicBirdie

My account was somewhat taken over by pokemon fanart, mostly due to the pokedex challenge..
More realistic pikachu/nidoran cross by MagicBirdie#031 Nidoqueen by MagicBirdie#001 Bulbasaur by MagicBirdie And many more

I then decided that I wanted to have a medium with more color, and decided to try some digital stuff. I subsequently got a monoprice tablet. They're much cheaper than wacom's, and I don't need a fancy tablet anyway :D
First "proper" digital painting: Budgies by MagicBirdie
I also did some more pokemon fanart, mostly fusions Dragonchu by MagicBirdie Pikasprout by MagicBirdie 
Tried some charcoal (had a hard time sharpening the sticks :PCharcoal Galah by MagicBirdie
I didn't do any finished pencil art for a while.. Some sketchier things: Birds sketchdump by MagicBirdieRed Fronted Amazon (sketch) by MagicBirdieTwo 'Toos by MagicBirdieSquirrel by MagicBirdie
last finished pencil art to date: Green Cheek Conure by MagicBirdie
I think I improved somewhat at digital art: Electro ball by MagicBirdie Battle! Dratini vs Pikachu by MagicBirdie Caique speedpaint by MagicBirdie
Pixel art: Pikachu pixel animation by MagicBirdiePixelchu 2 by MagicBirdie

I improve some more: Escape from Aperture by MagicBirdie Hybrid macaw speedpaint by MagicBirdie Dispute by MagicBirdie Leadbeater's cockatoos by MagicBirdie
Some quicker paintings: Recieved by heaven's light by MagicBirdieWe once roamed the sky so free by MagicBirdieQuail Speedpaints by MagicBirdieBetta speedpaint by MagicBirdieTeal Iris Speedpaint by MagicBirdieUno, Dos, and Tres by MagicBirdieSun conure speedpaint by MagicBirdie
And then some more finished ones: Conure! by MagicBirdieLittle Hummer by MagicBirdieEuropean Roller painting by MagicBirdieScissor Tailed Flycatcher by MagicBirdie (this one was actually verrry quick) Crimson Rosella by MagicBirdie

That's pretty much where I am now 

dA has been a nice place for me. I go on it quite a lot. It's been encouraging, overall for me :D
I've been able to watch some great artists and see them improve. The ones whose improvements I've noticed the most include but are in no way limited to: amerillo342 Ankylosaurornis (I wish she had left her other accounts up so we could all see her improvement.. Oh well, it's none of my business) KristynJanelle
A great artist I've been watching from the start who I've met on the backyardchickens forum: Nambroth
phalalcrocorax is a great photographer that always impresses me, as does W0LLE Jamie-MacArthur
PeachCanary hasn't been on for a while :( (where are youuu?)
I've been watching Rick-Lilley for a while. He has great art and deserves more attention :D
More great artists! Verenique windfalcon Sillybilly60
I've also been able to make some great friends/acquaintances, again, including but not limited to (and not including IRL friends): GMan1255 4themindandsoul FelinesandBowties FierySintle StormJix Jaylin-Raven-100 XecroZero lightpelt577 IBunnyBuns Cuthillius DoubleDandE MadalynC TommyGK Zombie423 SakuraMitsonomi (who I know IRL, but we communicate on the internet much more often) IdiotsInCosplay008
