Hello there! Welcome to my art page. I like pixels. Scratch that. I LOVE pixels. I've been making Pixel Art and Sprites since 2005 and though the art form often frustrates me due to art block and intricacy, I'm still very fond of it.

I also really enjoy making Stamps to put across my opinions and to state facts but I also like making fun ones. Photography is another great liking of mine.

I'm quite a laidback, open and friendly person who values constructive feedback and civil debates but you could say that I am also straight-talking and frank too and I do not suffer fools gladly. That said, do note me or something if you wish to talk to me or could use some advice, I don't bite and I am very approachable and amiable. I may be very astute about putting across my beliefs. That doesn't mean that I'm unfriendly or difficult to approach, quite the opposite :dance:

Be aware that I do not disable comments on my Deviations. You make a comment that is needlessly inflammatory and inherently lacking in logic/full of butthurt, especially in regards to my stamps? Then it will be preserved in all of it's lulzy glory.

Vertekins takes on stamp requests! Note me or comment on this page if you are interested

There are rules however.

1 - I primarily dabble in Sonic-related stamps and very, very little else.
2 - I do not and will not make stamps that slander RL people. I will make stamps that express rational, well-founded criticism.
3 - I don't make mega-long gif stamps because I find that screenshotting hundreds of screenshots for the frames is labor and time-intensive. Relatively short animated stamp requests are what I am inclined to accept.
4 - I do not and will not make stamps that are pro-fetish or pertain to NSFW things.
5 - It is at my discretion and my discretion only whether or not I accept requests sent to me. Don't be put-out if I decline your request. This is unlikely however if the request is within the rules. I do like fulfilling requests made of me within reason ;)
6 - There is no point in requesting something that I have already done. Take a look through my gallery's stamp folder to see if your intended request has already been done - vertekins.deviantart.com/galle…

Now my internet connection is reconnected and gloriously fast and my time isn't taken up by other priorities right now and because I need ideas, I'm eager to take stamp requests again. I'll only take a few at a time though, I'm only human ;)

The rules are;

1 - I primarily dabble in Sonic-related stamps and very, very little else.
2 - I do not and will not make stamps that slander RL people or which irrationally hate on fictional characters (Well-founded and credible dislike or criticism is A-OK though). I will make stamps that express rational, well-founded criticism.
3 - I don't make mega-long gif stamps because I find that screen-shotting hundreds of screenshots for the frames is labor and time-intensive. Relatively short animated stamp requests are what I am inclined to accept.
4 - I do not and will not make stamps that are pro-fetish or pertain to NSFW things.
5 - It is at my discretion and my discretion only whether or not I accept requests sent to me. Don't be put-out if I decline your request. This is unlikely however if the request is within the rules. I do like fulfilling requests made of me within reason ;) (Wink)
6 - There is no point in requesting something that I have already done. Take a look through my gallery's stamp folder to see if your intended request has already been done.
7 - I'll only take on at most 5 requests at a time.
8 - Don't expect an elaborative artist's comment behind the stamp if I don't agree with it's message due to opinion difference. It is basically impossible for me to be long-winded or 'passionate' regarding something I don't personally believe in.

Hi, say, did you ever finish my last stamp request?

What was it you requested again? I've been so detached from stamp-making that I question If I even want to do it anymore...

Vertekins, I would like to make a request for one of your stamps. As a sort of response to your "Storybook series NAILED perfectly Sonic's personality" stamp, I'd like to request something similar, I also thought of a sort of provisional title "Despite its infinite flaws, Sonic 2006 portrayed how Shadow's personality should be" or something like that, and here's a comment I made few days ago in your "Shadow isn't an emo" stamp where I try to make my point valid :

"Despite being totally crap, I think the game that portrayed how Shadow should be after SA2 is '06. There ! I said it ! Do you know why ?
Because he's portrayed like a Batman-like hero, a secret agent a la Dan Craig's 007, very competent and determinate in his actions and his words, who don't need to be exaggeratingly boastful about his power, because he's the Ultimate Lifeform. Boasting about being cool is Sonic's work, not Shadow's. Just delivering short but effective assertions and a witty but blunt sarcasm !"

Okay, maybe not too witty, but still very straight and cynical sarcasm. (I'm Italian, English isn't my mother tongue, but I do my best)

Maybe you could do much proper research on that.

If you are too busy with other requests, I will wait. If you don't agree with this view, it's OK, it's just an opinion.

Let me know ASAP ! Keep up with your excellent work ! :)

I'm on the fence regarding making stamps any more and haven't decided if I want to continue with them.

Hey Vertekins, kudos for your illuminating stamps !

I would like to ask you something :

I'm currently writing a crossover fanfiction between Wreck-it Ralph and Sonic, which takes place after the movie (If you haven't seen WiR, that's not a problem, you can ask me out), but before Lost World came out. I'm making return the movie's villain, Turbo/King Candy, and attacking Sonic, Ralph & co. while they're racing in All Stars Racing Transformed. But I'm not very certain how to proceed with fight between Turbo and the Blue Blur...I'd like to make a fight where Sonic is momentarily, but critically defeated by Turbo in his Cybug-hybrid form.

I'm not sure how to handle Sonic's behaviour here :

Should I keep him in line with his Unleashed/Storybooks character (cocky, but also very understanding, still capable of being serious because of the entity of the enemy), or the despicable immature, over-impulsive, bad puns factory brat he's being since Colours ?  

I rather prefer the first one, but I'm afraid of those stuck up cretins who like him the other way. 

Should I give an explanatory reason in the story for his sudden change of personality, while keeping his Unleashed/Storybook persona, or should I keep him overtly one way, either the balanced one pre-Colours or the horrid juvenile he's being post-Colours ?

Thank you very much ! ;)

You shouldn't take into consideration what others 'want' of your Sonic characterization - It's your fanfic and you can write Sonic the way you very well want to. That's the charm of fic-writing, your freedom as a fic writer. Pay no heed to those who demand a specific interpretation. If you don't like writing Colours+ Sonic then you shouldn't feel like you're obliged to do so to satiate certain fans.

That said, If I was you, I'd personally go for the former. Unleashed/Storybook Sonic knew when to get serious, Colours Sonic is just a flanderized jock who hardly ever treats things with the seriousness that is characteristic of him. It would lend the situation in the fic dramatic weight.

Thanks a lot ! I knew you would agree with me ! :)
Now, all I need is some explanation for this... sudden change of personality.

Hey, I was wondering if you could make a stamp saying "Sonic Boom is not a reboot or canon"

Because I still see that a lot of people, both who like and hate Sonic Boom, seem to be mistaking it for a reboot.
