I intend to go visit Kosucon 2015 in Jyväskylä, 17-18.10.2015 :D A photo has been posted, so I'm easier to identify barring surprises :dummy:

Finnish amateur photographer/photoshopper, who got his (so far) first DSLR in July 2011, and who is eager to learn new things about his hobby.

Along with art, I also like computers in general, math, bicycling, and making all sorts of jokes (and pranking people on Omegle :P)

Hi there! My name's OrwellianStuff! It was now time for a new ID photo, so here is one. To those who are unaware of who I am, here's a short primer: I live in Finland. At the moment, I study IT at an university. As of hobbies, I do programming for fun (this title was brought to you by, Orwell's Hard AI Takeoff Anime Tool!), play video games, and of course photograph a bit.

I also tend to experiment a lot with all sorts of stuff. Not much else to say, really... except maybe following: for those who are curious as of what I'm wearing, that outfit is known as "Zodiac Schutzanzug" - and yea, it is as sweaty as it probably looks like. Could perhaps (VERY perhaps) work for a winter cosplay con though...

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt

Pretty long. Since 2011 active with irregular regularity :D

2. What does your username mean?

Precisely what it says :lol: However, to what it refers to, it is such an intriguing story in its own right (plus ever so slightly Classified :shh:) that it would be ridiculously silly to share it here, like a museum exhibit ;)

3. Describe yourself in 3 words

Mathematical Finnish geek.

4. Are you left or right handed?

Right handed.

5. What was your first deviation?

I don't recall :dummy:

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?


7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

I'd like to master digital pixel art :D Because pixel art is epic.

8. What was your first favourite?

*searches* Apparently a Ratchet and Clank expression meme :lol: Ratchet-Expression Meme by Gashu-Monsata.

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

Photography and mixed media seem to be my top picks mostly :D

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Very tough to answer to any of those; for (10) and (11), the answer is fairly unclear, and for (12), I don't know which story to choose :dummy:

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

DSLR (or any other suitable camera) plus Photoshop. And more recently, DXO OpticsPro :D
Also, for con pictures, I've mostly used my Hard AI Takeoff Anime Tool™, a development from the Improved Anime Tool™, and the original Anime Tool™ :nod:

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

Both of these are, again, hard to answer. There are multiple, very viable and competiting answers for both of these questions.. so I'll settle declaring that there is no clear winner for either of these questions :D

Thanks for reading. :aww:

And I'm back from Animecon 2015 (11-12.7) in Kuopio :D It was a pretty enjoyable con indeed, with many many intriguing random events (from my viewpoint). If this sounds exciting, do read down. If not, then you may as well skip to the bottom for technical information, or point your gaze to something else entirely.

I shall present you a concise and abridged version of my journey to Animecon :D


On  Saturday, I had dressed into the outfit I've mentioned in my previous journal. And, at last, I got to see :iconheartshackles: (Heartshackles), who did this time manage to identify me :XD:, as I had not again made a surprise change of costume :dummy:. I also had done my intelligence properly, so I was even able to guess correctly who I was precisely looking for in terms of appearance :D Nice that we were able to see each other! :la:

I also paid a visit to a local Japanese restaurant, and enjoyed pretty good sushi, plus had a try at the chocolate fountain (yes - molten chocolate gushing from a small fountain). A tad expensive, but I'd say it is worth it, since the price included well more than buffets usually include in my experience - and quality was really good.

As of other things, I snapped a few photos, and simply wandered all over the con. Also watched the cosplay contest, which was pretty nice with really good outfits :D

Oh, and also bought the traditional Ramune bottle I usually buy during each con. :aww:


Saturday passed and Sunday arrived.

The most interesting thing of the day happened as a random event indeed. I was doing particularly nothing in a hallway, when I was suddenly approaches, and asked to join the Manga Quiz programme, as apparently they were one contestant short. Why not, even though I openly admitted that I have about as much knowledge about manga minutiae as a gorilla likely would have about logarithms, if you went and asked one :meow:.

Well, against all odds. I won :wow:. Thanks to the kinks of the tiered scoring system, my very knowledgeable partner (who got the 2nd prize), and sheer, Gladstone Gander-level of luck in terms of questions :XD:, I was victorious.

Truth to be admitted though, most questions were really tricky. Getting names of the voice actors and mangakas correct proved to be a challenging task for everybody - while guessing the name of series and characters less so. As my personal opinion, the idea was definitely good, but the skill level does need refining :nod: and so does the scoring. As a fan of technology, maybe one could rig a program with those BUZZ!-style controllers and a multiple-choice answering thingamajig :confused:, and scoring per person.. or if not that, still revise the difficulty level to be less challenging :D. OR :iconteheplz:, maybe, if someone is going on a streak, have the game automatically give him or her more challenging questions :evillaugh: no, I'm not an evil game developer or anything.

Anyway, back to where we were. I walked out with a very nice grand prize: a cat-themed bag, filled with a bottle of Ramune, some unidentified mystery mini-soda I have not yet tried at the time of writing this journal. Plus, an Animecon trinket which I presume was handcrafted from leather :la:. To complement these fine Japanese delicacies, I bought a bag of candy called 'Chururun' - candies which are small plastic cups filled with delicious jelly. To eat one, you peel off the cover, and squeeze the cup to push the jelly right into your mouth :D. 10/10 would buy again, if it were not so ridiculously expensive, 8 euros a bag >.< ...

End result

Content :D Despite some setbacks, like the ghost house having a queue that never got shorter (before closing, that is), and unfortunately missing the AMV contest due to arriving late and getting turned away due to seats being filled, I had fun :) Hopefully others also did.


Will process them as soon as practical. Not immediately, but soon :iconwoooplz:NOW available on Flickr
