Minish Cap Blind Stream! by Altermentality
Minish Cap Blind Stream!
I don't usually like drawing myself, but I wanted to do something fun to advertise my next game stream. I'm starting it up tomorrow (July 1). Follow me here if you're interested:

I've played most Zelda games but never got the chance for some of the handheld ones. The Minish Cap was recommended by my boyfriend (who thinks I'll enjoy the sassy hatbird) and a lot of other people, so I look forward to discovering it!

I've been streaming the one-of-a-kind, contentious, but unforgettable Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts recently! This is only my second time playing the game to completion; it's been a long time, though I was VERY into it for a while after its release in 2008. The stream has been quite the nostalgia trip, in addition to a hilarious experience, and there are so many things I want to draw now that I'm a bit better than I was then.

Follow and join me sometime!

I truly do love this game.
Paper Pokemon by Altermentality
Paper Pokemon
A while back, I had the idea of Bleck's crew being their own "Elite Four" (with Bleck as the champion) and decided to make the old-school sprites (based on the Gameboy Pokemon games) to match. Since then, I've decided to work through requests and my own whims to make a lot of other Paper Mario characters in this style. I've never really done pixel art, so it's been a lot of fun and I've learned so much! But right now I'm going to rest on this series for now and move onto something else.

Almost all of these fit within the size constraints of the original Pokemon sprites, but I wasn't holding myself to the same standards on some of the earlier ones, so they might be a wee bit too wide or tall.

Destroyer of Worlds by Altermentality
Destroyer of Worlds
It's SPM Day again! Can you believe it's been 9 years? I can... myself and the world around me have changed so much since I first played this game.

I have to say, recreating all of those worlds was just what I needed this week. Placing all those dots or lines, coloring pixels individually... it was rather meditative (except for Sammer's Kingdom, which was anything but!). I'll probably upload them individually and un-Voided in a bit. You can even use them as desktop backgrounds if you wish!

I streamed the creation of some of this. If you're interested, follow me on twitch and you'll know when I'm creating art live!

Hey all!

Recently I wrote a character analysis essay on Dimentio, based on some recent re-evaluation of assumptions I've made about his motives and personality since the game came out. But it's about a little more than just him! Theatrical history, fate versus free will, and the stakes needed for a truly painful betrayal are some of the things I touch upon.

I posted it on my fledgling blog, and will not be hosting it here on deviantArt, for a number of reasons:
1) I want all my nonfiction writings to be consolidated in one place
2) It really benefits from being broken up by a few pictures
3) I didn't want to mess with transferring it over to dA and dealing with formatting it here.

You can find it here:… If you read it and left a comment there, that would be really cool! But you could also leave one on this journal. I would love to have a discussion!

You don't have to agree with my interpretation of things, but I hope you enjoy the essay! You might even learn something... I certainly did while writing!

23 years old. Everything I can do with art is completely self-taught. My main project is The Fourth, a story webcomic that I create with my boyfriend: When I get the chance, I also like to do a smattering of video game fanart. If you like what you see, I do commissions for pretty cheap! (Look here:… )
