Okay, this has been bugging me for a long time now. Why do so many people dislike (or even downright hate) the name Nevaeh? I've heard nothing but trash talk about it. People say it's a "ghetto" name. Why? Because it's more popular among black people? What a horribly racist concept. I don't know the real reason, and I suspect that even if I knew, it still wouldn't make sense to me. Maybe some serial killer or pedophile with that name made world headlines or something. I dunno. :p

In my personal opinion, Nevaeh is one of the most beautiful girl names ever invented. For those who don't know, Nevaeh is "heaven" spelled backwards, and it is usually pronounced "neh-VAY-uh." How is that not awesome and beautiful at the same time? I mean, I can understand not caring for a particular name, but hating a name? Hate is a pretty strong emotion, and for something as inanimate and intangible as a name to arouse such an emotion, a greater justification is required than merely "it sounds like a ghetto name."

Is it because it's so common? So far, I have not yet crossed paths with a single person named Nevaeh. Shouldn't ultra-common names like John and Sarah be held in greater contempt? Nothing against any Johns or Sarahs reading this. I just mean that commonality is obviously not a good excuse here. You'd think that over-popular names like Aiden, Hayden, Jayden, Kayden, etc. would have worn out their welcome long ago, because who hasn't met at least half a dozen of these guys by now? If they're so beloved and universally accepted, then why isn't Nevaeh? If you're just tired of hearing it, fine, but then surely you must be tired of hearing every other over-hyped name too. I mean, be reasonable.

So tell me, what's so bad about the name Nevaeh? WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU PEOPLE???

Bob Lives to Kill Another Day by Nevuela
Bob Lives to Kill Another Day
I actually drew this the day after "Clown in the Dumps" aired back in September in celebration of Bob's continued survival. Unfortunately my PC started having problems soon after, and I was unable to color and post this for over a month.

Yes, that's me checking Bob's vitals via poking stick. :D Sorry the quality sucks so bad. Once all the images were scanned (separately), they underwent some stretching and shrinking in order for everything to fit together into one comic. The adjustment process ultimately skewed the pixels, but I said "to hell with it" because I am well aware that it's been over two months since I've posted any new fan art, and I am far more ashamed of that fact than the sucky quality of this piece. :p

Wow. I can't believe not one single person commented on my activity update way back on October 19th. Did nobody see it? It's a new feature of DA that appears to be identical to the journal. Look on my main page. It's right below this journal. Since nobody commented on my update, I have to assume nobody got notified of it, which makes it a completely pointless feature. Once you follow someone, you're supposed to be notified of new art and journal entries, right?

Sigh... just read my "activity" on my main page, and it will explain where I've been all this time. I'm not feeling well enough today to properly explain or express my sincere joy of being back on DA again. :p

Hello, everyone! Apologies for my prolonged absence. I think my computer has a virus or something, because, among other problems, I cannot do anything on DA. I can't post anything, I can't read messages, I can't even view new art in my notifications.

I am using my roommate's computer while she is out in order to type this, and unfortunately I will not be able to afford a new antivirus program until November first. Yes, I have tried free antivirus and malware programs, several in fact, but most won't even download all the way or install properly, and the only one that did (McAfee) doesn't do jack for my computer. It tells me I have to BUY in order to fix anything.

I can't guarantee I'll be able to use my roommate's computer again before the first, so do not plan on hearing from me again until then... unless you are friends with me on Facebook, in which case you can contact me any time since this virus or malware or whatever it is seemingly has no effect on Facebook, aside from refusing to let me watch videos. :p

How do you draw sideshow bob, do you use a reference/screenshot, or draw him from memory. i really envy how good you draw him.

I've been drawing him for four years now, and I am able to draw him from memory, although sometimes I may use a screenshot for a very particular facial expression, because I'm rather limited on the number of facial expressions I can draw. I hate drawing the same surprised or angry face over and over, so sometimes I need a new perspective. I also sometimes need a screenshot of his bare feet in order to draw them. Feet are a LOT harder to draw than one might think!

Here is the very first Sideshow Bob picture I drew, on Dec. 17, 2010:  nevuela.deviantart.com/art/Pos…

I did not appreciate your comment about the nude Sideshow Bob drawing. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. I don't go around telling other people their art disgusts me, even if it does. I keep that to myself because it is hurtful and uncalled for.
