metalheadrailfan's Profile Picture
United States
Hello, deviantArt!. The name's Derek, your average railroad enthusiast/metalhead from West Florida (as of 7/2/12 Kansas City) (And no way in hell am I a foamer!). I have been obsessed with trains since I was about 3 and it has grown from a hobby to working a for a life long career (that's right, working for my degree to become an locomotive engineer!). My obseesion with heavy metal began when I was about 15 and somedays just can't go five minutes without a screeching guitar solo blasting through my speakers.

I'm not really much of an artist, I'm okay but not great. I usually draw trains or guitars, but lately I've been practicing/drawing some of my favorite cartoons I used to watch as a kid, such as Hey Arnold!, Danny Phantom, Rugrats/All Grown Up, etc, etc. and I'm getting better at it (still need to work on hands though, I always seem to fail on those XD ). Anyway feel free to browse around, comment and favorite.

If you want, you are welcome to read my fanfics on

And by REQUESTS ARE FOR FRIENDS ONLY, I mean do not watch me just to get one. After I gotten to know you and your art (if you have any at all) after a certain amount of time, then I may consider it.

Also, I may not be the greatest artist out there. This is just a hobby for me during my spare time. But, if you have any criticism to give, whether it be positive or negative, I welcome it. If you like it, you like it. If you think it's complete shit, tell me why to see what I can do to fix/touch up/improve on. STAMP critism welcomed by Lennylein Mature Critique Stamp by Toxic-Decay

If you happen to see this on a few of my drawings: NOTE: THIS IS A CARTOON. DO NOT LEAVE ANY INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS OR ASK FOR MORE REALATED WORKS. that is to keep anyone who want to go all Rule 34 on it to stay the fuck off my profile!! I MEAN IT!!!

Just follow the rules and we'll be cool. Alright? Excellent!

Quotes I live by

"Ass-kickers Unite!!"-Eddie Riggs

"Everything in nature is beautiful. Unless it's ugly."-Grandpa Phil

"No Stairway...Denied!!!"-Wayne Campbell

"Why would heavy metal ever go away?"-Scott Ian

"For God's Sake, lighten up! IT'S THOMAS THE FUCKING TANK ENGINE!!!"-Nostalgia Critic

"We are music lovers. We are art lovers, not 'genre' lovers. I mean there are no limits, there are no rules. And if there are rules, then it's not music." -Grutle Kjellson
