Previously known as "T-Newt" on DeviantArt, I decided to give this another go, since I'm drawing more. I am keeping this one up for good, this time.

I'm an illustrator and cartoonist currently studying in the art of animation and motion pictures. I am also a film buff, gamer, and quite the audiophile.

Went to The Art Institute of Portland for a year (dropped due to tight budget)

Graduated from Clackamas Community College with a transfer Associate of the Arts degree.



Well, since I sat through reading FreyFox's OC Questionnaire and mentioned that if anyone read it all the way, they'd be tagged, I might as well do one of these, and it'll be on The Bluesy Fox himself.

The Bluesy Fox (sitting pose) by T-Newton

1. What is your real name?
A: The name's Steven V. Fox

2. Interesting... what is your current age?
A: I'm 27

3. Uh-huh, what is your favorite food?
A: I prefer a good burger now and then.

4. And your favorite drink?
A: An ice cold cola.

5. Confession time! Who is your lover?
A: Layla Vixen, who is in my band. A fine saxophone and trumpet player.

6. Have you kissed anyone yet?

7. What about your childhood sweetie?
A: I didn't have one. I grew up in very rough times.

8. Who is your favorite author?
A: A tie between Robert Louis Stevenson and Herman Melville.

9. Now, what is your biggest fear?
A: Being alone. Ever since my parents were killed in an accident, that was the worst kind of fear I ever experienced.

10. Any siblings?
A: No. I was an only cub.

11. Who is your hero?
A: Sir Louis. He was my adoptive father and mentor after leaving the orphanage and we played the trumpet together for many years. Sometimes, he would play solo while I played the double-bell euphonium to accompany him.

12. Who is your worst enemy?
A: I don't really have one.

13. Who is your best friend?
A: My bandmates: Rocky, Layla, and Johnny.

14. What would you do if you met your creator?
A: We'd talk music, specifically jazz and blues, since that is what I play.

15. What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: I was destined to continue my family's bloodline on being a musician, and I've already fulfilled it.

16. Worst nightmare?
A: Experiencing the deaths of my parents all over again.

17. What's your lifelong dream?
A: As soon as I marry Layla, I plan to have a couple cubs and teach them to be musicians, so the family bloodline can continue.

18. What would you do if your lifelong dream came true?
A: My kids would join us as we played the local clubs.

19. Where's your favorite place to relax?
A: My apartment, which has a great view of the city.

20. What do you do most of the time?
A. I practice playing the instruments I own, which include my trumpets and harmonica, my father's double-bell euphonium, and my mother's accordion and french horn. I also write new material for my band and we consult one another.
So, if you read this all the way, I'll do what FreyFox did to me and tag you. Now get crackin'.

My own OC and the main character of my animation project entitled The Bluesy Fox.

The story of the fox:

He is a 27 year old fox that comes from a long line of skilled musicians, including his parents. His father played the piano and double bell euphonium, and his mother played the french horn and accordion. He was given a pocket trumpet at the age of six and he learned quicker than any novice. However, two years after he began playing with his parents in front of many people, his parents were killed and he became an orphan on the streets, with only his parents' instruments (excluding piano) and his trumpet as his only possessions.

As he walked with his instruments in a wagon in tears, he would meet an old, wheelchair-laden and visually impaired fox who was also a trumpet player that only played the blues. His name was Sir Louis, and he offered to be the cub's adoptive father and teach him the ways of the blues. With tears still in his eyes, the fox smiled, and they began to play in front of a wandering crowd.

Many years have passed as the fox and Sir Louis, as father and son, played together. But unfortunately, things yet again took a turn for the worse when Sir Louis was taken to a hospital, where he would serve his last days. The fox, now in his 20s, was there and as a final wish, Sir Louis gave the fox his own trumpet, and his final words were these:

"Put that horn to your lips and wail like a wolf howling to the moon."

With tears in his eyes, he did exactly that.

A year passes, and he would form a rhythm and blues band with his three friends that grew up with him, and with his life experiences, he would be known as "The Bluesy Fox".
