dA Bestiary No 13 by Windy999 dA Bestiary No 13 by Windy999
Now I've come across a lot of these in the last year!

No matter how much help they get they never make any progress because they are so set in their ways - My motto, which has served me well throughout my life is "Have a go". If you never try anything new you will never imporove.

Thank you - I shall now put my soapbox away until the next time :D

The full Bestiary list can be seen / added to here - [link]

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-01-25
Every now and again, it pays to take a look in the mirror and laugh at yourself. The da Bestiary by *Windy999 is how we as an online society can do just that. dA Bestiary No 13 is one in a series of caricatures of ourselves. We'll be featuring one of them a day for the first sixteen in the series. ( Featured by dygel )

I remember seeing these back in '06. Having discovered your gallery again recently, I've been reintroduced to a whole universe of delicious flavors.

I salute you, sir.

Oh my -gods- I know so many people who fit this species. SO MANY. Including a couple who have access to Photoshop and the tutorials they need to help them LEARN. And they just won't. It's so much easier to whine. I can think of so many people who are that way. SO VERY MANY.
Kingda-Ka Featured By Owner May 7, 2009
I'm often called this; problem is though, I'm very happy with my art skills at the moment and don't want to change them.
Kingda-Ka Featured By Owner May 7, 2009
Or should that be 'need' to change them?
Latte3000 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2007

I turned one of these into an enthusiast, but the results are yet to be in on whether or not I was successful...

^^; I'm somewhere between a :+fav: bomber, an Emoticon sponge and a Wanttowontthough. I find that my cardboard box must a tiny slit in it somewhere though... either that or I'm hearing voices... :fear:
Cheshirecaticus Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2006
Heh, I thought I was one of those, then I realised tht I study people's advice OBSESSIVELY, then alteast /think/ I've improved. xD

Ooooh the satire! It bites hard!!
I tend to be this creature most of the time, wish I wasn't... I feel so stereotyped :P
chaostic2k1 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2006
You misspelled the common name. You put "WantoWontThough" where every where else you put "WantToWontThough". You forgot the second t, for to, in the common name.
MiraKHall Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Good grief, do I know some of those guys. Some of my best friends who are praised highly for their artistic skills ranted about that in their journals one time, and even though I'm always seeking all variety of artistic methods, traditional and digital, I can definitely feel for them for their frustrations with these creatures... 'Tis why I work harder to just do the best I can do from my end and improvize.

Thanks for sharing this with us. Despite it being part of your collection automatically, I feel this is a great asset/addition to the DA Bestiary in realization of how shallow some of us can be sometimes in self-pity :blush:
Windy999 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2006

That's one of my aims with the Bestiary - I don't name names or take the mickey out of art initself - it's up to people to see themselves in it

Many thanks

That's how I feel most of the time... T__T

Btw, this is an awesome idea!

Hey hey hey now, the box is there for a reason :P
LetterAfterZ Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2005
Not sure if this hasn't already been said, but i believe a 't' is missing in the name at the start (it appears with the extra 't' in the description).

Loving these works alot. Really cool, getting scared how many i'm falling into...
RandomScribe Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2005
The poor thing... stuck forever in his cardboard box...

Oh, I've been forgetting my Grammar Nazi corrections, haven't I? Oops. Well, in the last sentence of this one, remove the apostrophe from "its." Also, add a period at the end. ^^
sakurakira Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2005
oooh very clever. i especially like the line about how its unable to "think outside the box". :D what a great visualization of the phrase.
arborwin Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2005
goddd there are so many of these--on the internet in general and not just DA. good show :>

i was wondering if one of these was going to show up =P
me all the way.
PockyMafia Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2005
I feel a little bit like that some times, until I look at my drawings from last year and realize how much ive improved.
animatedexistance Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2005
The text and cartoon really go great together here...I love the character literally being unable to think outside the box, thats a great touch.
fox718 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2005
Don't mean to be a grammer nazi but you forgot a "t" in it's name. Oh and p.s. This whole series is absoloutley amazing. It's funny because it's true. =)
GabrielElArgentino Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005
can you categorize me? im a zoophilic deviant...

I love reading these, and I especially loved that one. Keep up the great work!

That's awesome :XD:
rooshkin Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005
I find myself being one of these all too often....but I'm getting an operation to take the box off I swears it!

Just a note....some one may have already mentioned this.....At the top of the description of the 'species' you spell it 'Wantowontthough'.....but later you spell it 'WantTowontthough'(2 Ts)....just wanted to let you know....

The drawing makes me giggle...
Strider57 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005
nice "scientific" name! "stucki nabox", now if nothing else is original, that is! :lol:
sumilidon Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005
Just as good as the rest of the series, I want to point out you made a spelling error, in the text it says wantt owontthough, but the title says want owontthough. (I sound horrible :( trying to help)

good job
stickler Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005   Photographer
i dunno if anyones mentioned it, because there are hella comments here and i'm not about to read all of them, but you seem to have forgotten a t in the big name:

the wantowontthough.

p.s. congratulations on this series. dA pop culture at it's finest!
jiachengwu Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
well...that's so unfortunate for the wantowonthoughs.

i know this one is similar to the wantowntoughs....they never improve no mattre how much years you give them. and others will only tell them the usual things like cool and nice. they never seem to reallize that they are not improving and they keep producing the same things. what do you call them?
linggg Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005
that's really good!

gosh your drawing is so good...and you're so clever...i'll never be able to make a deviantion like that... *sigh*
Windy999 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005
Give it a go - you may well surprise yourself :)

pettirosso Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005
d'oh... :shakefist: no good at jokes...

though it really IS clever and well drawn.
fluffythemonkey Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005
You used "it's" incorrectly, twice. ^_________________^

But sticklerium aside, yesyes. The drawing is abnormally cute. It's also great to see someone poking fun at... the... ones with an infinite supply of gravitational potential! energy.

xiaoli Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005
this illustrated list should be preserved on dA somehow. it's GOLD!
DivineError Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005
LOL, so true. I can't believe how many of these fellow get me every day :(
soulsweeper Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005
at least your original in drawings, but to be honest, what better way to get fame and pageviews.
memod Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2005  Professional
as always great work, you are very good at picking out the characteristics of certain deviants :nod:
I have met both wanttowontthough's and enthusiasts... just wish it was more of the latter.
Maevyn Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2005
I have personally run into this type, and I think that it might just be laziness, or an inferiority complex, because I watch the people that have noted me for advice and direction, and yet they've done nothing to improve. Perhaps they don't have the motivation to implement my advice, or they think they'll fail, so they never even try. This can be a very annoying one because I don't like taking that much time and putting in that much effort, just to have my guidance fall on deaf ears that just pretended to be attentive and interested. What's the point in asking, if they don't plan on following through?

Fantastic series, btw - I've run into quite a few of your types in my travels through DA, and I think they're my natural enemies because I try very hard not to keep doing the same things, or behaving the same way all the time. I think you could create an addition called Variety that's the natural enemy of all of these, because there are some who strive to not be any of these, save the few "good" types, like the True Welcome.
kimidori Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2005  Student General Artist
so so very true, I think I'm partially one in ways o.o;;
TwistingMyArm Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2005
Reminds me of a lot of anime artists I know. :paranoid: Especially this one person.

Hahaha. This series is so great to sit and laugh at because of their truth!
