Hello guys, my name is Mook (yes, my real name, and it apparently means "pearl" in Thai... and "rat" in Arabic?), and I am an artist who illustrates original characters most of the time. The characters originate from a story that I have been working on for 2 or 3 years now, that I had initially planned to be small. I'd say it's progressed quite a bit...
I intend to produce more fanart, but I don't know why it's so difficult for me, even more so than illustrating original content. Perhaps I should watch more anime, or observe more things that I can admire, which others are also familiar with and could therefore make the illustration more appealing to a wider range of people than solely myself.
I struggle greatly in drawing cute/light-hearted things, because what an artist produces reflects what they are psychologically... constructed of. To some extent, at least. It's not that I don't know happiness, but I guess I'm more familiar with resentment...!
I'm Indonesian and I really love noodles! Also, you might notice that I use formal language most of the time, but sometimes I feel the need to simplify my words in order for others to understand me.
Despite my polite word choice, I'm a rather silly person and enjoy speaking of nearly everything! In private I dish out tons of spicy memes, you wouldn't even guess.
About my username, it had all started in 2011 in a Private Server of a certain game that I had played for a very long time. At the character naming phase, during character creation, I looked at the empty white bar and simply thought, "Why not FlamingDildo?". Other players later appeared to be rather fond of it, and I had then begun using the same alias in different places. Since then, the name FlamingDildo has somewhat stuck to me (alternatively, I name myself ThunderDildo). Dildos are, like, so chill. Unless they're flaming, of course (ayyyyy).
I'm aware my art might seem 'edgy' to some people, but I have no intention of displaying any great-ass attitude in which I hate everything/body or whatever. When I illustrate a character experiencing pain, murder, agony or other forms of suffering, I am merely expressing my rancor and immense indignation I unfortunately harbor towards many people.
Contrary to some assumptions that have arisen, I do not "draw edgy shit to look cool".
The things I draw often vary in theme very much. One day light-colored innocent stuff, and the other heavy mutilation and gore... so beware of that if you decide to Watch me...
And hey, I'd like for nobody to steal any of my creations (including my OCs; I exert much and careful thinking in their concepts).

Requests: Depends. Ask me, perhaps.
Art trades: Sure if you don't mind my crappy art lmao
Commissions: Nah (I do not feel quite prepared for those yet).
My favorite type of characters are mature-looking women with half-closed eyes lmao (for those who may wonder why I draw those so frequently)
