Wanna learn more about me? Wanna see more art pieces before they reach deviantart? Go to my photo albums and look for my art album. First add me as a friend so we could talk about art trades and collaborations :)
just tell me who you are on deviantart.com first :P

Link to my facebook page :www.facebook.com/profile.php?i…

Most people call me RoFlo, but since that name's taken on deviantart apparently, i had to add my gmail name to it :P

I believe that all living things should be given a chance to live, regardless of what they do in the future, present, or past. I dont judge based on personal life or appearance, only on bad actions and hateful feelings done to others. I believe that there is a higher, supernatural power somewhere in this universe, and although different religions give him different names, my religion calls him God.

I may crack jokes about certain things like homosexuality or sexual diseases, or even political issues or things that may be considered "too soon" but i assure you it does not reflect on my personality as who i am. I believe that if something is funny, its ok as long as its only meant to get a simple laugh out of it. But there are moments when the jokes go too far which is where i draw the line. I dont make jokes that go over the edge unless im really mad or in the wrong state of mind.

I see unlikely possibilities in almost everything. Its what give me the drive to keep trying until i reach the goal of something i could probably never get. The thing is, if i feel like its possible and i can manage it, then i'll keep on trying until that goal is acheived. To be honest, i never thought i'd make it this far in life. I assumed i might be held back once or twice, stuck in summer school for a 5th year in a row, lost at some different high school with no friends, or even become so fed up with no personal life that i would eventually snap and commit some dangerous crime. But all that was avoided. My life has become one big adventure after the next. And if it wasnt for the life ive had, i'd have no basis for the characters i present to you here on Deviantart.com, for that i am happy to be alive with the life that i have been given.

Don't listen to people who tell you how much of a failure you'll be.
Don't change yourself because others say how unattractive you are.
Don't give up just because you've tried repeatedly to do the exact same thing.

It's your life. Make of it what you want, just be happy with the life you are given. Its life, and it belongs to you.

Interests
so lately i've been doing a lot of thinking about how important it is to have an influence of gender in my stories. like i once said before, Gareth Edwards did an amazing job on reviving Godzilla, but one of the main topics of criticism was directed on the lack of female characters or even a sense of cultural diversity. they mentioned how yes there were female characters and other characters of color involved, but they seemed to often play second fiddle to the male white heroes of the film, either that or they just fill the space that can be taken by pretty much anyone. the critics even pointed out how the ethnicity and gender of certain characters could have been easily flipped and the story would have still played out just as great, only a little more inclusive to all (which is good) 

so as a means of being more inclusive, i've decided to start taking into consideration the fact that i might need to start re-thinking the genders of my mainly male-filled world of OC's in my mind. 

ever since my first OC Young Ty, i've created characters that shared common traits; some kinda reptilian/dinosaur face, animalistic qualities, and more often than not.. default male. that would be fine.. if i hadnt gone on creating tons of males heroes and maybe like 3 female heroes in the time being, and even then they might play second fiddle to the males, and that's not really sending a good message 

this year i've already taken steps to changing up the genders of some of my OC's, tonight i changed Jermone the male, Gnome-type character into a female Goblin-type character named Ja'Moa (i'm still testing this out, ok?)
also for those of you who dont know, Constellation Draco is a fictional parallel universe in which mythical creatures are based on evolution and that earth's natural history is rewritten, also the races of gnomes, trolls, goblins, elves and ogres play the roles of Earth's human ethnicities, meaning that Gnomes would consider anyone of color to be "not human" and therefor a monster (it's pretty easy to label Shrek as a monster if you dont consider him human, i mean he walks and talks and lives in a home and saves cities and owns a family and wears clothes and behaves like a lumberjack ... but he's green and has those ear thingies and is therefore a monster ... see?) 

so i thought the story of people setting out to change the world and its prejudices would have a little more impact if you partner up a big white soldier with a smart woman of color and pair them up with a small dragon and THEN GO CHANGE THE WORLD!! 
and i've already designed a female version of Terri Jara Terri Jara Nova '14 by RoFlo-Felorez  and so far i like it :P 

so thoughts on genderswapping any OC's of mine, just to see if maybe that would improve their stories or maybe spark something else good, lemme know, i would really appreciate it if some of you guys took the time to read through my galleries and learn up on my OC's ... if you care :P
