This AMA's subject is the general social's kooky artist and Pokemon fanatic, Noipoi

Now this ain't Noipoi's first AMA here as they were a subject in the past. I'd strongly recommend checking out Noipoi's initial AMA from a good year and a half ago just so we don't get a majority of repeat questions. However a good amount of time has passed and some answers may have changed, so at the same time, I wouldn't completely discourage repeats either.

As always, all site rules are in effect. Please try and limit yourself to one post containing up to three questions until Noipoi has answered, then you may ask more. And when asking questions, please keep it civil. Have fun! If you're curious about if you're on the list of future AMAs, refer to this post over in the Social thread. If you're not and you'd like to be added, please send me a message. Even if you've been a subject in the past, you're free to go again! We'll try to draw one name for an AMA each week, so stay tuned! And if you wanna check out some of the older AMAs, please refer to this post in the Social Thread

Alright, Noipoi Noipoi , you ready?

I'll start:
  1. How did you get into Smash Bros. in the first place?
  2. What vegetable/animal/mineral would you most like to see as a Pokemon down the road?
  3. Thoughts on Pyra and Mythra?

Alright, let’s get this party started.

1. My best friend had a copy of Smash 3DS, and convinced me to get the Wii U version so we could play at my place. That was the summer we became Smash fans...

2. I want a Dragon/Fairy Kirin. Or a Dragon/Grass Dragon Fruit Pokémon. Either one would be rad!

3. Xenoblade deserved another character, and I’m happy for the Xenoblade dweebs...

But good lord do they not do it for me.

Though to be fair, their moveset could be fun. And I’m loving the Kazooie vs Mythra memes.

All in all, they’re not my thing, but whaddaya gonna do?

1. You ever plan on opening commissions up? You could seriously be makin' some money off of your art.
2. Who are some of your favorite YouTubers? Doesn't have to be gaming related.
3. What's your favorite voice over performance? A voice over related question was inevitable.

1. I’ve never felt comfortable doing commissions until I was satisfied with my art. I now realize I’ll probably never be satisfied with my art, but I’d still like to wait until I’m a little better. I want the people to be paying for a product worth paying for.

2. Chuggaaconroy has been a part of my life for a decade at this point. He’s funny in a non-overkill sort of way, he’s informative, he sparked my love of bad puns, love the guy.

I know they’re love em or hate em, but I do enjoy the Game Grumps. Arin missing tutorials and then blaming the game is stupid, but I can’t bring myself to hate the guy. He’s so enthusiastic about everything he does, and his rage moments are iconic. I truly respect Dan though, it wouldn’t be outta the question to call him my main male role model, at least when I was younger. He’s such a kind, gentle man. If I become half the man he is I’ll be more than proud.

And lastly I’ll bring up The Geek Critique (which you should look up immediately) he’s a smaller channel but his style of videos is awesome! The way he obsesses over the things he loves is identical to mine, even if we like different things. That’s why I find him so compelling, it’s like we’re the same person born in different pop culture eras or something.

3. I really like Rob Paulson as Yakko. I dunno if it’s my favorite, but I really like it.


1. Favorite How to Train Your Dragon film?
2. Have you seen any of the MonsterVerse films?
3. Any countries you've visited?
1. The first. For nostalgic purposes, and because I think it’s the most solid of the three. Everything that’s introduced comes back around, it’s a really tight experience. The second and third are about on par quality wise, with them doing different things right and wrong IMO.

2. I’ve seen King of Monsters (2019) and thought it was good. The monster fights were rad, I need less humans. Looking forward to Kong vs Goji.

3. I’ve never left the country. Cuz I’m broke as hell :p

1) what’s your favorite food?

2) what’s your favorite hobby?

3) do you play any card games :4pacman:
1. I’m a basic *****. I love pizza. Though strangely, I don’t like too many toppings on my pizza. I feel it clutters the pure pizza experience.

2. Art and animation. Hoping to make a career out of it.

3. Never have :drshrug:

1. I’ve yet to. I honestly don’t hear that much about it, even though I lurk in animation circles.

2. Krookodile baybee

3. As far as my silly hat will take me.

1. As an artist, I’m always improving. Or at least I like to think I am. So whatever recent work I’m proud of will fall under harsher and harsher scrutiny as time goes on. But recently, I really like this piece.

2. I think it’s an interesting concept. Not really sure how open world would mix with smash, though.

3. Never been skiing., though I’d like to one day.

1. Be excellent to others, and to yourself. That’s the way to start.

2. I dunno how good I’d call it, but I think The Good Earth is a fascinating period piece.

3. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze has some of the best music in any video game. Period. Though of course I also have to mention Undertale.

1. Probably something involving a pie.
2. Spend 19 years doing basically nothing because the elders say so, realize that life could be so much more, global pandemic hits before you can do anything, spend the next year doing basically nothing.
3. Immediately


7. How many different gaming consoles do you own?

9. What's the circumference of a moose?
1. My main console is my switch. I’ve got my old 3DS, and my old Xbox 360. Been thinking about getting a PS5 but I’m gonna wait for a price drop.
2. I love cooking! I think Baked Macaroni is my best dish, but I’m trying to learn how to make fried chicken.
3.

1. Ya ever had green tea?

2. What are your preferred tools for digital art (tablets, programs, etc)?

3. Woomy?
1. I believe so, but it’s been a while. I remember enjoying it though.
2. I have a Wacom Cintiq tablet, and my program of choice is clip studio paint. It’s pretty good at illustration, and once I figure out animation I think it’ll be good at that too.

1. Watching cartoons of course. But aside from that, I’ve always had the desire to tell stories through art and animation, and I drew as a way to represent my characters and get my stories out there. My end goal is to create animated series’.

2. If I had to give it a name it’d be “early 2000s Cartoon Network”. That’s what I grew up with, it’s what I enjoy, and it’s what I try to implement in my art. As for perfecting it, it’s not perfect! I’m always improving. Whenever the style shifts or changes it’s usually because I saw someone draw something cool, I wanted to try it out, and certain design choices stuck.

3. Craig McCracken and Genndy Tartakovsky are my main inspirations. The way they design characters has been hugely influential to me. If I had to compare it to anything, it’d be them. Though of course they’re far superior to me. Rebecca Sugar and Daron Nefcy, and the general art style of Clone High are also inspirations.
