Dowlphin's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Creatively active. Used to do plenty of caption pictures and animated GIFs. Tried to get into music creation, but that's mostly on hiatus. Some focus on video and picture editing, writing (puns, jokes, inspirational essays, song lyrics) and drawing, lately also more gaming-related entertainment, and trying to put the best of me into the creative work I can do with my limited means and skillset. The path I am taking is part of my artistic expression. Life is art.

I love playing with words and giving depth and meaning to things. My alias befits this, being full of potential. It is not only a combination pun of "owl" and "dolphin", but it also contains "do", "ow", "LP", "pH", "phi", "hi" and "in", so in Dowlphin there is action, pain, long play, chemical duality and balance, solution, water, the golden ratio, casual greetings, popularity and being embraced by and contained in something.

I'd be much more creatively active if my life wasn't missing some essential magical ingredients. (I am dealing with long-time depression/burnout. I come alive when things or people I interact with fill me with hope and when my creative drive doesn't bump into walls.)


Most of my caption pictures and animated GIFs (older stuff) can be found on my webspace:

Please ask me first if you want to use my art somewhere. (Unless it's a trivial case. Just crediting / source linking is fine for those.)

If you like my art, you can make me very happy by adding me to your deviantWATCH. Same goes for my YouTube channel and other web presences. Audience gives me the motivation to continue. Thanks! :)
You might even like to follow my commenting activity and such. Boring comments are a rarity with me. ... Anything else would not be pieous.

My favorite letter is p. "Why" you don't ask? ... Well, fun with a p is pun. And then there's pony, Pink(ie Pie), party, prank, parody, pretty, play, passion, peace, power, portal, paint etc.. Enough said.
Thus my favorite colors are pink and yellow, because both begin with a p.

My favorite word is "flummoxed".

You buy the game once and then never have to pay anything else if you don't want to.

Spread the link to this article if you are interested in this crap not happening anymore. It will never stop unless there is force applied.

(I probably shouldn't even have censored my language considering how much this annoys me, but I suspected a word filter preventing me from posting this entry, when it turned out it's just dA making trouble with my up-to-date Firefox. (I can click the preview button, but not the submit button.))

UPDATE: Kind of resolved for the specific case.
That's what I'm trying to practice.
I made a donations link on my website.
Also on Twitch, but on my website there's more detailed info about my motivations to do so now.

Should someone want to commission something (for example if they're interested in seeing how I express myself freely or accurately fulfill a clearly defined task when actual substantial appreciation fuels my energy), I am open to that, too, as well as contributing to certain projects. There are more various things I can do than I can list here.
As if things weren't already difficult enough.……
UPDATED 2015-11-06

Please spread. People need to know. Too many don't care.
The internet annoyed me so much lately, so I finally found the impulse to draw again. Just some humble line&fill work. It's not done yet. After ~50% completion I ran out of steam and continuing would really have started to feel like a chore. Staring at a blurry analog VGA screen and trying to fill all the gaps feels tedious after a while.
I almost threw the towel before even starting, when I had to resolve several technical issues related to my digitizer first. Some of it known but forgotten issues, but some new, requiring me to eventually just reboot my whole system to fix it because I wasn't in the mood for hunting down the cause. I'm amazed I managed to push through that without major energetic injuries. Maybe I hate those problems too much to give them the satisfaction.
So now, for the time being, I'm back to having no idea how to spend the rest of my day (actually night). Feeling of accomplishment? ... I don't even know.

Admit the existence of the shadows within and they become visible to you.
Face them and they lose their control over you.

theroyalpain79 Featured By Owner May 11, 2014
Howdy! I have seen your avatar all over the place on here, and well let's just say we kind of like the same funny stuff. As you could already guess, I am another Pinkamena Fan, well not just a fan, I also write fanfictions. So let's just say that I am a My Little Psycho fan. Oh and by the way the My Little Psycho thing was coined by Sergeant Sprinkles on So, I guess that just makes it even funnier.

So if you want a crazy Pinkamena stories or if you have any funny pictures, just let me know, I will always think that this stuff is funny.
Dowlphin Featured By Owner May 11, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, as the totality of my content suggests, I'm not really a fan of Pinkmena. She's just unavoidable sometimes. ;) Especially when being stuck on a rock farm. ( Although with music, I can at least turn it into a rock music farm. :iconpinkiesmileplz: )
Pinkamena is a part of who Pinkie is, and I accept Pinkie unconditionally and fully, just the way she is.
