Hi, I'm ChoonieLaster, creator of Soak Speed.
So, I had this in mind for a very long time, but until now that I received enough DA appreciation, it's time to share some of the coolest works around featuring my characters!
Before we start, and before any rants enter in mind, have in mind that I properly credit the original artist, and of course, I link back! Most artists showcased here come from DA, so it's easy to give them a shoutout!
Without anything else to say, let's start.
1.- Cara Mala Cout and Crust (by ShyviTheShy) http://fav.me/dbdiey4
This is a recent drawing I received from a fellow DA friend, Shyvi. I already received a small hint in a status post of hers, and today, after I came back from school, I saw this. Other of the hints were that, I'm not gonna lie to you; my character Cara Mala is one of Shyvi's favorite fan characters. I couldn't doubt on that, it's for sure. But yes, apparently, this is one of the cutest stuff I received. Cara Mala may be mostly insane, but when she's not, she emitts a cutesy smile. And well, speaking of Crust the Pizza Cutter... that eye is just making him a cutie. I may have stated it before in here, but I'm stating it again; Cara Mala Cout, alongside Crust, and the Living Tools, are my Amateur Surgeon fan characters.
2.- Shadow Plague by X-Neewollah-X http://fav.me/db6d68o
For those who don't know what I mean with Shadow Plague, in this case, I mean, my design of one of the Special Disease Types from Plague Inc. And, if you don't know what I mean with Plague Inc, it's a game that I highly recommend! It's literally infectious! (despite it costs money). However, sticking on the drawing, and my custom design of the mentioned before Pathogen, I basically had an AT with Neewollah, and despite I had to be specific on which character I would pick for her to draw, I could go for any character of hers. And well, after a good while since I did my part, she did hers. When I saw the drawing... I couldn't believe what I was seeing; my version of Shadow Plague, described as she should be; Shadowy, somewhat cruel, dark, and... biohazardous, that's evident. But I basically loved her intimidating face. The blue particles around her and the night background were also something that cautivated me. Shadow Plague is a sort of minuscule vampiress... and what a coincidence, the actual Plague Inc Shadow Plague involves vampires! But still, dark, and precious... owo'
3.- Scrubby by ShannonxNaruto http://fav.me/dbbj5fe
Scrubby the 'Great' Purple Shark is a character I should draw more frequently. Marine life is a rare interest of mine, and with more reason I don't stick on it often. However, this drawing, originally done as request, was a thing that gave me a better way to portrait my character; cute on sight, yet she does look menacing in some way; I mean, when I firstly saw the drawing, I thought she was giving an innocent, cutesy smile to the camera. On second thought, I think she's doing that to attack any prey that falls under her smile! Or, she would just run away. Scrubby is both scaredy AND menacing. And, you know... in real life, sharks normally do not attack humans. It's very rare when they do... unlike most movies about sharks. But that's something else. When I firstly saw the drawing, even I fell under the smile!
4.- Exploday by brenstar345 http://brenstar345.deviantart.com/art/Boonnnn-AT-647069522
Yes, I know I am crazy, and I'm sharing a drawing of a person I broke boundaries with. Because of reasons I'm not gonna tell, with the only fear she might notice this, and keep on... I don't know. VENTING ABOUT MY ATTITUDE, definitely. Thankfully, she's conserving this ferocious drawing of Explo in the site, so why not? Again, it started as an AT. I was a good friend of Bren in that time, and without doubt I finished my part... almost instantly, but considering time! And well, as usual, as most people, when drawing my characters, get to think stuff like: I didn't draw something like this before!, Choonie has some unique characters to share with the world!, This is an interesting character, I will try my best!, or stuff like that. But knowing my gray characters well, I'm sure that they have the most interesting personalities and/or appearances. So, I decided to tell her, to draw Explo. And, when I saw the drawing, I felt like a real Boom! game show Bomb; rising from the conveyor belt, with the water vapor (simulating smoke) being shot, and listening to the "Mega Money Bomb loaded!" thing. Because yes, Explo is the Mega Money Bomb... and he's a gray character. However, this drawing of Bren also gave me an idea regards the Bombs' designs; now, the symbol will be in BOTH sides, rather than just one. Remember the style of how Ponies have the Cutie Marks in both flanks? Well, this, but in the Bombs' sides!
5.- Momma by KizunaYui-Studios http://fav.me/db0m5jp
I'm not gonna lie to you; this is (at least for now) the most beautiful Choonieversal Fanart I've received in my ChoonieLaster life. Mostly, because, Momma itself is one of the most gorgeous characters I've designed. She was modeled starting the Mother Wisp from the DS version of Sonic Colors. With some obvious changes, like having an actual crown, having 8 tentacles rather than 4... if you know the original Mother Wisp, and compare her design with Momma, you know what I mean. But, back in the drawing, it was an unexpected event; I was Kizuna's 1000th watcher! The surprise was present when she commented on Momma's reference sheet (which is now replaced with a high-quality artwork, though), with huge excitement, because I helped her reach that milestone. Because of this, she asked me if she could draw Momma. I, of course said yes. And, when I got to see the drawing... it is as precious as the character itself is. The background and the way her name was written may remind of the reference sheet, but I'm fine with that. This is still something precious.
Don't forget; if you have some Choonieversal fanart you want me to see, don't hesitate, and make me see it! As well, if you want to do some Choonieversal fanart or tribute, please do so someday. I will feature it, as a special shoutout!
Apparently, this song born with the piano has become one of the best works I've done in my life. And I'm really glad with the result! And now I notice, it's the longest track I've done, despite the patterns. It IS something, though!

In both cases, the drawing of Earthstar belongs to Jourd4n, from Deviantart: http://fav.me/daaa0d3
Tell me something; Have you ever seen me stealing other people's properties and claiming them as my own?
In my Deviantart (ChoonieMoonie2002) people that created Animal Jam said that "I'm stealing their properties and I'm claiming them as my own", when ABSOLUTELY NONE of my drawings has to do with such stupid game (I call it stupid because of scammers. I played that game once or twice). Now, they may take down my gallery, or worse; TAKE DOWN MY DEVIANTART ACCOUNT, because of unfair copyright issues!
And to emphasize the context: You know saying "Leave me alone" is a defense mechanism to protect myself from anyone that wants to harm me, right? Well, someone interpreted these words as an insult, and she said I'm a bully. I may have anger issues, but I do not harm anyone JUST BECAUSE I'm from a family that knows what violence is!
And the initiator used an image of mine of one of my Soak Speed characters (Blowbble, the Yacker Soakling), and COMPARED it with the Phantoms from AJ!
And I mean, WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM!? Animal Jam is meant for children to play, explore, and learn about animals! (and it was created by National Geographic, if you get my drift...)
The initiator even spoke about me being CRUEL and WITH KILLING INTENTIONS! I'm not cruel: I just don't like to talk a lot (I mean, I can be considered a Lone Ranger rather than a Social Butterfly). And I don't want to kill anyone: I just encourage people that follow me to be active. She's lying about my anger issues!
I said before, but I'm saying again: I have anger issues, but I'm from a family that doesn't harm anyone, not even in the Internet.
All I want is a NORMAL LIFE! With anger issues and all that stuff, but OUT OF EVERYTHING THAT IS AGAINST CHOONIELASTER AND ITS DERIVATIVES!!... even if it's about a popular game by National Geographic, meant for children.
But you know already: I don't steal art. I give credit to the original creators, and well... you get my drift in this case.
If you feel with the intention to write your opinion, please feel free to do so. I'll be reading all opinions, even if I don't respond.
The video that made things go too far: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DX7b_YnA8s
Honestly, I... I don't know how to start this.
I received a vent from ElectroSpanz encouraging my drawing of Backpack and Map from Dora the Explorer, one of the shows I watched in my childhood. I'm about to start a small compilation of characters from my childhood, that I enjoyed more than others, in a collection named Let's go back for a while... and I will feature characters from shows VERY FEW will remember. I always wanted to draw these characters in my early ages, but due to lack of experience, well... all I'm doing is to go back in time and see what I used to enjoy, and with which things I feel delightful now.
Now, there were so many things, that may have concluded, but I still enjoy, due to them marking my life. One recent example is ¡Boom! It has concluded a month and about 2 weeks ago, but as the episodes are in YouTube (and published by the host himself), I go back in these days, and even look for hidden extras! And, as I'm still in the correction/illustration process of the novel, there are reasons why I still enjoy the show, despite the conclusion.
Speaking of games, I have been less into Geometry Dash, and more into darker apps, like Plague Inc or Amateur Surgeon 4. And despite that, since I got more into PI than anything else, that could be a good reason why I draw more of it than anything else. And, yes, since I mention Ndemic Creations in my Twitter, they sometimes get to like my designs. But still, since the incident I had recently with brenstar345 regards sharing, and Piguilipe regards my anger issues, I have been playing less GD. I have also been running out of level ideas, and I might quit level creating. That's unsure, but if I finish-verify an upcoming level with Skybound by Lockyn, and if it gets enough attention, I will keep on creating levels. And, playing less GD lead me to draw less of it. The more I play an app, the more chances I have to draw something regards it. That's the case of Plague Inc, yet, ironically, it's not the case for Tap Tap Fish or Amateur Surgeon 4.
I also have been playing less videogames, due to too much homework loaded, and too much Plague Inc madness. I may not keep on playing them, unless I get a Nintendo Switch (if they get restocked) and, if time and money allow, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. But this also impacted me on drawing. You know why.
But the veredict is, just draw what you like and what you want! I don't care if I receive negative reviews/rants/vents. Just, draw it!
While the song may sound like any other, the description... it's what matters.
If anyone of you notices the note, please tell brenstar345 I'm sorry. The focus, there shouldn't be the track itself. The description is what matters. Now, I share not because yes. I do this because I want people to know the artists, and check other drawings by them as well. I consider sharing revenue, and... has anyone thought, did Rub ask Ramen to post the drawing on Twitter? No... well, anyone who gets into the track, read the entire description!!
I don't know what happened. I had my comeback song ready (the full version of Unsynthetization), and, for a really weird reason, only 39 seconds of it were fully saved. I guess I should do it all from scratch... I only wanted to surprise you about that thing being just a small break from music, taking time of Spring Vacation, yet everything turned out to be worse...
Now it happens I received another rant from Bren. Before you rant me, let me point out:
Now, you know you're concerned about me posting drawings by other people (not in here, in my Facebook page and my Twitter), and you say I didn't ask permission, but THEY'RE MY CHARACTERS, AND I WANT TO SHOWCASE THE WORKS BECAUSE I WANT THEM TO KNOW AND FOLLOW THE ARTISTS WHOSE MADE THEM.
Besides, what is wrong with linking back? One of the drawings made is from a person I BROKE BOUNDARIES WITH, and so, I will not post a single evidence, due to the artist being a monster. Now, you may not wanna report me because, sharing the work to around the world DOESN'T EQUAL TO stealing. I do give credit, and link back.
Besides, when I asked permission to do something? NEVER.
I'd hate having further concerns. Those who keep on for sure LOVE seeing me angry. Why is it WRONG to share and giving proper credit, but OKAY to not telling anyone about the talents people have?
And this is for everyone reading this journal, that made a drawing for me, as either AT or RQ. Is it hard to leave a girl with anger issues alone? Is it easy to keep on shouting over and over again, because of me sharing a drawing in other media, but being concerned, even if I do give credit and link back?
Do you LOVE to trigger my anger issues? Do you even HATE me and what I do... I mean, do you really HATE me? You shouldn't answer, because i know what you mean. Rants, concerns, and reports are equal to HATE. YES, I MEAN SERIOUSLY. ANYONE THAT DOESN'T RESPECT WHAT I DO, HATES ME.
You most times said, that only the owner of the character can use the drawing. I read it in the works I've seen around, and for the drawings people has done for me, should also be the case. You know me; I have anger issues, I wrote a FULL novel (or at least its draft, it still needs some corrections, described, in social life, by Fermion, and in real life, my brother), and I spend enough time on what NOBODY CARES.
So, will you just TRY, and respect the fact that I like sharing the drawings people has done for me, as AT/RQ, and know that I credit and link back, no matter what?
Hello, I'm ChoonieLaster, creator of Soak Speed.
I know that I don't generally draw shippings, due to the drawings also to be published on Facebook and Twitter. Most are considered as my best works, such as Caught in your wires... I guess I should remake this drawing, in some way that recreates the scene of the novel!
Well, as most of you will know, I also tolerate a variety of shippings, but in this list, I will describe ONLY official shippings, that are the ones that will be tolerated in most times! Shippings of Fan character-Canon do not count!
(I say most, because, you know I don't like any kind of 18+ art. Sure, I can get to write 18+ stuff, but with just thinking on how it actually happens... ¡Me da cosa!)
1.- Sarzee and Scrammy (from ChoonieLaster's Boom!): Sigh... what can I say about this one? When I firstly started writing the novel, from the many ideas I had in mind was, the fact that Sarzee and Scrammy had a romance after finding each other in the connection between Sunlight City and Moonlight Rapids. Yet the date changed various times, until arriving to what it is now in Boom: The novel - Chapter 11 . Still, due to it being a confirmed shipping, I will tolerate most ways the romance could have happened... or romance beyond novel-relation!
2.- Surreal and Droplita (from Mesa Realm): Ever since Droplita reached the Adolescent phase of her robotic life, and after being chosen as a Mesa test robot, she was glad that she had the perfect partner... even if Surreal didn't think so. Even though the inverted five point star robot always tried to do his best to get out of the tests, Droplita wouldn't just stop loving him, and since those days, 90% of the pear robot's thoughts is Surreal. Just... Surreal.
3.- Earthstar and Spikalore (from Soak Speed): Ever since I started with the concepts of Soak Speed, one of the ideas I can't take off my mind is, that there's extreme romance at some point of the story. As with Sarzee and Scrammy, the idea of Earthstar and Spikalore has changed various times; From a kiss and some forced romance, to what appears to be... um... Honestly, I can't explain all the details due to 18+ content... But hey, I know I'm giving a slight spoiler, but, to get the Pink Shard, Earthstar was forced to do it to Spikalore. Yet the gray Soakling doesn't notice anything, due to him being put to sleep by chloroform. Still, the thing was successful, and Earthstar was paid with the Pink Shard. Even if he forgot that ever happened.
How would they do it, if they're a creature that has no visible genitals? I would like to explain you, but I have to say no.
4.- Bio-Weapon and Shadow Plague (from Pathogenic Incorporation): I will explain less because this one just popped off my mind yesterday. There's a point in the actual story, where the Bio-Weapon starts to have a close interest in the Shadow Plague. At start, she was feeling so uncomfortable, and even with the fear the Special Pathogen Clan (SPC) might notice it. Now, even for me it's hard to understand how will the romance be developed in the story.

I'm sorry, but I am unable to keep on with music composing. Due to the many issues I've had before, and the many projects in mind, that unfortunately all are scrapped, I got into forced retirement. I know this will make me start losing followers, but it's the truth. Despite it's Spring Break, all the sounds I was making were of course horrible, and I've been more of listening to music. Not creating it.
So, if you got to read this... if your main reason of following me was because of my music, I will highly suggest you to unfollow me.
(Now, I may have quit music composing, but I will keep submitting audio, but it will be only vocals. Most ideas came from voice scales, and I did want to share these ideas)
Most of you will not know what I'm talking about, but it's something true.
No, I didn't play it. And I will not.
So, just today, Club Penguin Island just opened its doors in App Store and Google Play. But most people weren't satisfied about it. They said they will no longer involve Puffles, making everyone get in the worry. Despite the characters are looking at the classic Disney style...
With just picking a color, the app crashes. It's free, yet most (if not all) actions require membership; Wanna waddle with clothing? Get membership. Wanna play? Membership. For everything, a membership is forcefully required.
It's just a money-costing app disguised as a free app. I've seen more cases like these, like the Coloring Book apps (Pigment, Lake, Colorfy and Coloring Book for Me), and... well... Smule doesn't count, because at least you have access to a lot of songs, even though for some, you must join someone that has VIP membership. But it has guaranteed fun in its 4 apps! (even if I'm only active in Sing, due to memory issues). But, CPI... requires a membership for absolutely everything. Even the fun.
And, to be honest, I've read the App Store reviews. And I also remember Shellaxy told me that she will not get the app for nearly the same reasons. Sure, I don't blame Disney, but they just... did something wrong enough to lose money. Not exactly goin' bankrupt, but... losing some money.
Damn, even in Facebook, in CP's official page, most of the reactions are Anger, or in Spanish, Me enoja, rather than Likes or Sad faces. This just made me have less chances on saying CPI is better than original CP. Because, the original CP was acceptable, yet Disney made everything worse, with CPI.
And, I mean, despite I was never a CP fan, Disney is just getting worse! Are they doing this for money, and not the satisfaction of customers?! Something similar must have happened with the Disney Infinity triology! When the cancellation was announced, everyone, even me, felt guilty about wasting so much money in well-made figures and an extremely stunning sanbox game! (though, to be honest, I preferred 1.0 over both 2.0 and 3.0... I don't really mind Marvel, and despite 3.0 lead me to like Star Wars... ugh. But mostly because the 1.0 playsets couldn't be played in neither 2.0 and 3.0!). Yet I'm getting a little bit off-topic with this.
This goes for Disney: You should be careful on what are you announcing, and what are you doing. You just made an app that destroyed childhoods after announcing the conclusion of the prequel. The one who had this idea, should be fired. Sure, you're a great company that made great films, and life-marking games, but overtime, people lose interest... and they just wasted money, so you could keep your huge industry alive. Listen to your fans. Listen to their interests. And don't just stay there, saying that you'll add it, and you break the promise. You can lose a lot of your money if you notice and regret what have you done to your fanbase, but it's the truth!
Now, I just hope this journal could get some slight attention, to make everyone realize about what Disney has done with some great games... I also miss Big Hero 6 Bot Fight, a retired app, that was the best Match-3 I've played! And it closed its doors a year ago! And it was so great! Now Disney has become... become... become... *insert a non-curse insulting word here*
