dA Bestiary No 4 by Windy999 dA Bestiary No 4 by Windy999
This one was easy!

As soon as somebody suggested it I got a mental image (which looked just like this picture :D)

This one could definitely apply to me

Cheers All

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-01-16
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 4 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 think we're all a little like this... who doesn't like having their ego stroked once in awhile?

I'm probably like that. I have a lot of pride in my artwork and can be very sensitive when people harshly critique it. :3 I feeeeeed on the happy comments. :XD:

HAHAHAHAHA danm! its been a while since iv stopped by and checked your page and im impressed. This series is such a great idea and something everone on DA can relate to in some way and characteristics they can recognise in people here.

This one imparticular cracked me up :P

still looking through the others but this one deserved a +fav in my opinion :D

Hehe! Nice. Sadly, encountering just a couple of these guys has made me seriously reluctant to give constructive criticism to people I don't know very well... I mean, you're just trying to be helpful, and suddenly the person gets all mad at you! O.o

You, however, seem to have a healthy sense of humor, so I'm sure you won't mind another grammar pointer. ^^

This is a bit of a picky one, but it always bothers me. Periods go inside quotation marks. So: ...he will enter a dormant phase called a "sulk."

Grammar Nazi, AWAY! *flies off*

I just wanted to say how wonderful I think this series is, and that I love your sense of humor. Congratulations of the Daily Deviations, you really deserve it.

Anyway, I really enjoy this peice because I run into these type of people on DeviantArt all the time. I think you have captured thier nature entirely. Especially when you speak of how one ill comment can make them go into "sulk" mode.

Wow, that is one nifty fish. It really does look like it has quite the ego. Although I do admit, I can act like an EPF at times. But everyone does need some encouragement
