hello friends i have spent the past couple hours helping my gf ( memeduchess ) set up her long-empty artfight profile bc i rly wanna help her get oc art bc her ocs are SO cute and good, the pinnacle of ocdom. hoping tags will help 'em be seen, but i figured i'd also advertise her profile here!! check out these donuts!! they're good!!: https://artfight.net/~rozalyst
since she doesn't rly draw i will be (ideally) attacking ppl who attack her as sort of pseudo-revenge. she's ostensibly planning on getting sorted into steampunk so she has an excuse to give me mspaint shitpost doodles and has expressed interest in perhaps mspainting strangers and enemies if she ends up feeling confident enough. please support her in this endeavor. we could unlock a whole new level of roz. imagine.
please draw jerry, from denver
hello friends it's me iso! i continue to not be very active bc of being distracted by rp (you know, big plot stuff) and pals and general life and sobbing at the 2613 character notifs in my inbox, but it's that time of the year so here is my artfight profile!!: https://artfight.net/~Isoprene
i'm on team cyberpunk this year bc i like the color scheme better, and i am EXTREMELY excited abt tags existing bc there's been so many times where i'm like "man i just wanna draw an x" with no way to search for "an x"... but now, The Power
also i added, like, maybe one more character, and i should probably upload more but i'm lazy. i did however finally add a lil "profile" for offsite characters, so if there's someone you want to draw that i have on TH but not on AF then now you can!! whoo
that being said i got all my usual issues (job hurts the ol' wrists, tablet has to be unplugged every 10 minutes, yadda yadda) so as per usual i am expecting to maybe sputter out a quick revenge doodle on the last day like usual and that's about it.(pretend you can post the little imagine man inline. thank you.)
but who knows... perhaps you will be fortunate enough to be graced with my EPIC and GRACEFUL artwork such as these recent MASTERPIECES or even these MAGNIFICENT WORKS OF ART BECAUSE THERE'S TOO MANY DANG PICREWS OUT THERE FOR MY BRAIN TO PROCESS WHAT I SHOULD EVEN TRY TO USE WHICH I GUESS IS A GOOD PROBLEM BUT MAN I'M LAZY:
well that's all for now gamers, stay tuned for more epic iso updates such as (continues to be inactive for several months)
someone remind me to update orchid's profile with the big ol mystery spoiler i finally got to reveal several months ago. heres the only context you get. and then i can ideally upload some more context-sensitive characters so that i can upload my magnum opus (a story about a character going to bed) so that i have more motivation to work on my even magnumer opus. please look forward to it, and have a nice day
Got excited about my layout tweaks and wound up scrounging up some spoons last night/this morning to make another profile! Took a while to decide on someone, but I wound up picking Deius since he's got nice art, not too long of a profile to write up, no spoilers to awkwardly write around, no details I'd have to BS on the spot, is a main character in his setting and thus well-deserving of a profile, and not too difficult to pick out a jam for! He's a character I'm pretty fond of, so give him a peek!
...Realizing the poll on my last bulletin foreshadowed this. Whoa. The power of spaghetti...
Literally! But we'll get to that.
Updated Orchid's bio since he was the last profile I made and thus the dude hanging around in my WIP Profile placeholder thing, so he wound up being my guinea pig for CSS adventures! Or, well, I was going to upgrade to a shinier version, but tl;dr I couldn't make the tweaks I wanted so I wound up just figuring out how to "upgrade" the sidebar on the right since that's all I really wanted out of the upgrade!
That gave me room to add another section, so I proceeded to... not do that at all and slapped a music player in there instead. We'll see if it lasts because I get self-conscious about music, but more importantly I either have 10 billion theme songs for an OC or zero. And most of them are zero because I just auto-associate every song on Earth with either Orchid or Orchid-adjacent characters. Or Orchid-adjacent characters AND Orchid at the same time! It is a nice way to set up The Vibe for the character, though - making picking a song out for the Orchids out there easier since I'd gravitate to what's most musically fitting out of the bunch - so we'll see if I'll be able to uphold it in future bios. Probably not. And it looks especially awkward when you're on the credits tab. But who knows!
If I get rid of it, then I'll probably just split History and RP History into separate sections like I used to unless I think of something better!
Aside from doing some actual proofreading, the real meat of the update is in the Entireties section, because it recently got revealed in RP that some apparent rando I was RPing in what amounts to an AU subforum wound up being an alias for an AU Orchid. So Coris has his own section in there now, there's images and hover text in that tab now, and Dicro's section there actually links to his profile like it really should've in the first place. He won't have a profile for some time, I imagine, since there's still a lot of spoilers for En2rety plot stuff in his backstory and while we're very close to revealing a lot of them it's just not quite time yet! He's pretty much the same guy, though. Sassy godmodder and all.
Last thing to mention is that I finally decided to just upload that story I mentioned in my last bulletin. Like I'd said I was going to wait until I made a profile for Astrid first, but I really want to make a new ref for them first and that just kinda keeps not happening, so whatever story time!! Summer might be over, but it's a story that'll surely bring you back to those warm, sunny days where everything is perfectly fine and normal! Give it a read!
I think that's all I got! Back to wanting to make profiles but not being able to decide who to make profiles of but also needing to do RP stuff but also wanting to write short stories but also needing to make refs but also wanting to play games but also-
Fashionably late, I know, I really should've been here, like, a year ago. But better late than never, right? I'm sure you've all been feeling like you're missing something in life, but don't worry: I'm here now. Feels good, doesn't it? Like your life's finally complete? I do that to people, I know.
Anyway! I've brought you all a nice big gift, and it's called info about me! I'm sure you're all falling over yourselves trying to click that link, but don't worry: it's not going anywhere, and neither am I. So take your time! Pull up a chair, grab some popcorn, settle down by the fireplace for a nice long read all about my deepest, darkest secrets. Generous of me, huh?
Well, I'll be perfectly honest, it doesn't have all of my deepest and darkest secrets. Just a couple. There's more, but [it's not time yet]. You gotta work for that info, you know? Dig it up yourself. Don't worry, though, I'll keep you updated. Those updates will trickle in, I promise.
That's all I have to say! But you'll be seeing so, so much more of me, rest assured. For now, though, why don't you [give my profile a read]?
It's taken me a hot minute, but Orchid finally has a profile! I say finally because Orchid's got a bit of a story. He hails from a little thought I had over 5 years ago about if Dicro - my arguable main character at this point - hung out with his pal Ignis a little too hard that I wound up making a reality. Shortly afterward, though, I started thinking harder on it, and the spoiler gang seemed so eager to flesh out this whole En2rety thing that one thing led to another and lil ol' 2cro got all hot and evil. Then a plot developed and soon enough there were plans for the future...
...The far future. It took, uh, 5 years and like three site-hops before things finally progressed for enough for me to reveal 2cro's true nature as Orchid, at long last free to share my emojis and funny memes with the rest of my friends. And lemme tell ya, I'd never felt more free in my life than that moment. Ah, memories...
It's been about a year now (the anniversary of the reveal was August 24th so I would've made this thing a lot sooner if I'd remembered whoops), but I finally mustered up enough spoons to crank this beast of a profile out. He was easily at the top of my list of profiles to make, what with being the most important character I have RP-wise and someone I talk about a ton. He's easily one of my favorite OCs if not The favorite, so I'd appreciate it if you gave his bio a read!
I have a story involving him I wrote not too long ago (read as: July apparently, wtf is time), but I'm thinking I might try to crank out a mini bio for Astrid before I upload it since they're the only other character involved. Would also be nice to let Orchid's profile settle in first, too, since it's probably helped by having a little background knowledge. We'll see, though! I already feel like writing another story too so who knows where this weekend will take me!! (inb4 i write nothing else this weekend)
Uhhh no other big updates really, I rly need to be active places but y'know, life and fixating on RP and stuff. Hope you're all doing well!
(sobbing) look at this profile layout. i can't believe this was free. it's SO CUTE i wish i could use it for every oc. need to get rich and make 10,000 more dainties just so i can use it some more. it's so good that i enabled favs on islette and took off her wip tag even though this isn't even a fraction of the amount of info i put into mini bios. but she and her cute lil profile deserve the world
well that's all. i uhh still haven't done much in life. it's been entirely too hot all month and my ac unit has been entirely too unhelpful so i haven't managed to do anything art fight related and now that it's cooler my flesh is suddenly exploding (long story) and i'm more tired than usual but i'm hoping i will manage to squeak out at least one single picture before it ends so it will have a nice-colored border in my gallery. priorities.
heavily debating a mass-upload of important ocs with little profiles like these just so i have things to link to people and i can stop not uploading lits. how can i live knowing i am so cruelly depriving the masses of such brilliant talent as THIS and such fun summer vibes as THIS??
but man... i also want my character page to look all cool and followable with nice art and not have over half of my characters be wips... but i also want to have a visible and relatively complete repository of my ocs and all of their images for easy reference and linking... but my followability!! but also i barely ever post or do much these days so who am i trying to impress here. i still haven't even fixed those broken profiles from when th made those big css changes or w/e like 3 years ago. c'mon iso.
...i said well that's all and then i said more things.
well that's all. i hope your flesh is well
how goes it, folks?? long time no bulletin, my last one was in uhhh.... october. a lot has changed since then, to say the least! hope you're all staying safe out there, and by out there i mean in there, stay inside my friends and wear a mask when you're not!!
not much going on here, i finally got to see my cutie pie wonderful lovely girlfriend memeduchess in real life back in march! she came down here from canada like, the week before everything shut down, i'm honestly in awe at how that worked out. i almost considered pushing it back a month or so or even just like another week or so and it's a good thing we stuck with our original plans because... yeaaaaah.
anyhow for the actual relevant thing here i'm on team sugar in art fight! 0 idea if i'll be participating because my wrists are complete garbage and it's too hot in my apartment to think much less draw half the time, but who knows... ideally i'd still like to get one or two things out but We Will See. so as stated in my profile there don't expect too much from me, basically just consider me points if any of my ocs seem easy to draw! nonetheless here's my profile: https://artfight.net/~Isoprene
uhh not much else to say, i rly need to work on profiles again but i keep prioritizing rp stuff when i have writing spoons which is good for my pals but not so much for my toyhou dot se collection, i gotta say. i don't even have my most important oc up here who got revealed last year despite having had 5 years to work on a profile for him... was gonna edit my profile and everything to be themed on him for a while once i busted him out and then proceeded to have nothing at all ready once the reveal happened oops!
but you can see him on my art fight dot net profile!! priorities
uhhhh i also started vaguely using tumblr again, check out my sweet oc blog full of hot memes if you tumble as well.
that's all folks, just chillin, goin through some stuff, focusing on rp mostly, rly need to be more active here
what's up gamers, be sure to check out my latest mini bios from yesterday! i guess if i keep doing multiple a day i'll just make a bulletin advertising them the next day or something...?
- here's pleris, probably my most powerful oc who isn't some sort of deity or reality warper. she directly serves hell college's mighty dark chancellor... in a maid outfit. maybe theyre girlfriends. (they are girlfriends.)
- and here's opine, the creator of the test reality and thus someone who keeps getting brought up over and over but who never rly had a profile anywhere until now despite being one of my most important and well-known ocs. i am good at profile priorities.
also to anyone who read things yesterday opine has more links filled out now so give those a peek!
- didn't do much bc my premium expired and i am Poor and only felt secure/profiley enough to slap another year down yesterday
- got to a Big Reveal in RP stuff and i'm amped about it
- gonna try and do at least one mini bio per day this month for OCtober(tm) - cranked out two yesterday
- briefly described the terms en2rety & altirety that pop up in bios
- added more + better folder descriptions and tons of flattened subfolders so people's roles in the setting/story are much clearer now
- lookin for someone to take over the generator freebie bin because i havent updated the thing in months and don't make enough freebies to feel invested in it anymore :pensive:
what's up gamers long time no see... because i didn't have premium for a couple months so how could i bear to be active on toyhou dot se while my poor ocs suffered from broken profiles?? (continues to ignore the ocs who still have messed up profiles from the big css changes like a year and a half ago)
uhhh actually don't have too much to say why'd i make a whole state of the iso address... well i dropped a big oc spoiler i'd been planning for 5 years in rp finally, you can see sort of a prelude here and the actual reveal here but basically A Certain OC who seemed innocent at worst turned out to decidedly be Not That and god i am so glad i finally get to rp him as his true self.
i had lofty goals of having a full profile out for orchid shortly after the reveal and i was gonna make a cool IC bulletin and probably mess with my user css and stuff for a while but things happened so fast that i wound up not having time and ever since i've just kinda been lazy. also i should probably wait for another very small reveal before i make a profile for him anyway just to make it easier to right, not that it won't have a bunch of stuff blacked out because The Reveals Have Only Begun
it's been fun tho obviously it's hard to talk abt to people i don't rp with but all the stuff happening right now is the culmination of a decade's worth of rp history and character development and planning and it's SUCH a relief to finally have ya boi orchid out there and to be able to talk about en2rety and have other people plan things now... it's fun to not have it all be limited to the Spoiler Club(tm) ya feel me now we can have shit like this thread of chaos
ANYWAY I dunno maybe I'll make Orchid a mini bio first just to have him up since he's so important, but he's also pretty deserving of a full-on bio and I think I'd like to just jump straight to that... but he's also got a ton going on and I should probably get him some better artwork than my own first so I can shove him in everyone's faces more properly but IDK
Speaking of mini bios though! I'm thinking of making this OCtober because OC is right in the name and I don't draw enough for Inktober, so why not do a thing where I make at least one mini bio every day? That seems manageable and would make up for time lost, not to mention I just need to get more OCs up in general. Not rly committing to anything for sure, but I'm definitely gonna give it a shot and at least try to make mini bios more often!
So with that being said, check out my latest two!:
- Here's Lureus, a catboy with an axe problem. Surrender your chicken nuggets before he takes them by force.
- And here's Chaurus, a beefy shark man who will try his best to save your chicken nuggets but cannot make promises.
They're both boyfriends of Poe and come from a similar school of "OC concepts I made on a whim but they quickly spiraled into being big favs and also Ignis fan-characters for some reason." I'm am... love them.
Also wanted to mention something that'll be present in all of my profiles: En2rety and Altirety. They've been mentioned here and there before, but long story short they're sort of like AUs that are important enough to at least get a footnote in people's trivia sections. Some are important/different enough that they'll get their own profiles (or at least mini bios,) but at the very least I'd like to make sure I mention them somewhere from now on. The real reason I bring them up is to describe them in here so you don't just ??? and wonder what the heck is going on.
Not going to get into Entirety theory and all that since that'll make things more complicated; read about it here if you'd like! But even that doesn't fully go over it, especially since it's written IC, so ideally I'll make a formal post about it somewhere. Thinking about making a FAQ bulletin or world thread or something where I could link that and my stats thread and ok I'm getting off-topic again. Like I said just think of them as AUs even they're more complicated than that... an Entirety is the consolidation of every timeline & alternate universe so they're Big Deals and no one should be crossing between them, basically.
En2rety is an Entirety where this jerk took over everything, ever, with the aid of that Entirety's version of Dicro. It's essentially the "bad end" for everyone's OCs. Might have to crosspost the thread where I talk about all of my differences (and everyone else does as well) since it provides a lot of info on what it's like! Just know that it's where the folks in that Big Reveal thread I linked hail from, and the fact that they can cross Entireties apparently is a big red flag.
Altirety - also called Intirety - is based off of our initial alternate Entirety subforum. It's less straightforward than En2rety, not really being a consistently better or worse version of Ent1rety/Entirety Prime. For example, the Tested don't have to kill each other all the time anymore and their creator is stable now, but pretty much everyone in SYOL is dead. Heaven and Hell College get along well now, but that changes so much that some OCs wound up never existing or have vastly different circumstances now. It's essentially an Entirety where everyone's story lines have one major change to them, and whether that change is good or bad varies quite a bit.
AND LINKING FOLDERS REMINDS ME I DON'T THINK I MENTIONED I FIXED UP ALL OF MY FOLDERS!??! I did that, like, a month ago, but go give my folders a look! They all have descriptions now and, better yet, I flattened things out so everyone's places in the setting/story should be more clear, especially for the HeColleges!
The last thing I wanted to mention is that I haven't really had the energy/interest to keep up on the Generator Freebie Bin for quite some time now and really need to hand over the reins to someone who'll actually keep it up to date! I'll mention it in the thread and the freebie bin discussion bin whenever I get the spoons to face the poor folks I've been rudely neglecting for so long out of shame and guilt, but if anyone's interested or knows someone who might be interested, hit me up!
That should be it, I think?? Hope you're all doing well, and hopefully I'll have some time to start catching up on my 2,116 character notifications because you all have very cool OCs!!
and be sorely disappointed as i participate even less than usual, which is impressive because my record is two entire art pieces
but i finally got an air conditioner so theoretically anything is possible.........??????
i am on team dream bc both dreams and nightmares are the iso aesthetic so i just let the randomizer pick for me
too lazy to provide any other updates tho rly i don't have much to update. that's life for ya
