      I'm HamatoKameko. You may also know me as Ink The Echidna (or just Ink). You can call me Ink or Meko; I answer to both. :D
      I'm 30, and I love writing, drawing, and collecting stuff.
      I'm into a lot of things, including Invader Zim, Sonic the Hedgehog, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Lordi, Mighty Ducks: The Animated Series, Lazytown, and monsters.
      I love the colors orange, green and purple. I also love the color combination of yellow, orange and white. Like candy corn. Oh and I adore rainbows. Frankly I just love colors.
      I write fanfiction with little shame, and have fun doing it.
      I like to draw, and draw a ton of fanart. I use Photoshop and Paint Tool Sai when arting digitally, and when I'm drawing by hand I prefer mechanical pencils. I'm thinking about getting Manga Studio just for the hell of it.
      I listen to all sorts of stuff, my favorite band in the world being the Finnish monster rock band Lordi.
      I don't watch much TV, when I do my favorites include, in no particular order, The Walking Dead, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and The Big Bang Theory. Mostly, though, I watch stuff on DVD: Invader Zim and Mighty Ducks: The Animated Series being my favorites.
      I've seen Lordi, Crush 40, and Peter Gabriel live in concert. I want to see Lordi in concert more but that requires traveling to Finland so... not happening anytime soon.
      I love comic conventions, too, having been to Long Beach Comic Con, Long Beach Comic Expo, San Diego Comic Con, Wondercon and Power Con.

Requests, trades and commissions are usually pixel art only. You can ask me for a drawing like something I've done previously, but don't be surprised or upset if I say no. And when it comes to requests, please, limit yourself to one or two items. I wish I didn't have to say this, but I do.

Really, DA? Real Names??

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 14, 2015, 6:18 PM
  • Mood: Mad
  • Reading: my tumblr feed
  • Watching: the evening news
  • Eating: gonna have enchiladas for dinner! :D
  • Drinking: Honest Tea Honey Green Tea

So apparently DeviantArt is now actively encouraging its users--of which I will point out there is a HUGE population of minors--to PUT THEIR REAL NAME ON THEIR PROFILE.

DA realname by InkTheEchidna

We've spent the last 20 years as a whole discouraging kids from putting their real names on the internet, or any personal information, for their own safety. And now DeviantArt is going completely counter to that.

This isn't Facebook. You can't hide your DA profile from everyone but approved contacts.

This is dangerous for kids. Not just as they can become targeted by child predators, but because attaching their real name to their primary creative outlet is a damned good way to get kids with unusual interests (unusual as compared to their school peers, who in general tend to mock interest in things like cartoons and fandom as it is) targeted by bullies, in a way they can no longer guard themselves from if people know who they really are. It's pretty hard to "block" someone in real life.

I'm 31 years old and I wouldn't put my real name on DA!!

#DeviantArt, this is severely not okay. You need to rescind this prompt, immediately.

*Stupid, horribly outdated and probably over-asked question inbound*
Is there any hope that your story "anything but ordinary" will be finished?
InkTheEchidna Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I really hope so. I always enjoyed writing it but life and my health have been in the way. I haven't forgotten or abandoned it, so yes, there is a glimmer of hope.

I really don't get asked that often and I don't mind at all. It's honestly pretty awesome to know people are still reading and wanting more of the story after such a ridiculous amount of time. :)

Thanks for reading!
