Hello everyone! Welcome to my page!
I’m WindySilver, a Finnish IT student who does art, both visual and written, as a hobby. Read more about me here.
The original purpose of this site was to host my visual arts course’s course diary, but nowadays, as the course is far in the past, I’ve turned this website into my author/artist/game developer page for the future as I will progress in life and become what I aspire to be.
Right now, this is not my primary site of operations and instead serves as a place which informs visitors about what I do and where to find my work. My art as whole resides on DeviantArt where I began my time as an artist online (at the moment; I am planning a migration to another platform).
Where can you find me?
DeviantArt: My main site of use when it comes to my art hobby. This is where you can find all my art, even though finding the visual bits can be rather difficult among all the literature. I use DA every day so this is where you can reach me the easiest and fastest.
NOTE: This account will turn mostly inactive and eventually migrate off-DA after 20th of May, so this is subject to change.
FanFiction.Net: Managing multi-chapter stories on DeviantArt is difficult to say the least. Therefore, I went to FanFiction.Net to post my fanfictions in a more controllable multi-chapter interface to have the chapters together without crowding the whole gallery with just one story. As I get email notifications of private messages, this is the second-best place where you can reach me. As most of my stories are in need of revising, I post my stories there very irregularly.
Reddit: My Reddit account with not much going on. I occasionally host giveaways there to get rid of unwanted Steam game keys I’ve gotten on bundles of Humble Bundle. Since I have the mobile app, I’m pretty easily reachable there.
Steam: One of the PC game services I’m in with the same name, alongside GOG, Origin, Uplay, Battle.net, Itch.io and Game Jolt. Due to the vastest game selection and the most of the community things I use, this is where I mostly play games at. I accept friend requests only from people I know, so if you want to send me a friend request there, please give me a heads-up before that!
YouTube: This is where I’ve put my videos. At the moment, the only videos are videos of my programming course’s practical work, Three Undone, speedpaints (some of which also have my amateur podcasts included), a screen capture video for a university course and a Dark Souls video. I’m planning to make some Let’s Play videos someday, but so far I haven’t been able to get started due to courses taking most of my free time.
GitHub: I’ve put my HTML widgets here so that I have something to show when I apply for IT work. More IT-related projects will come there later.
Archive of Our Own: I made an account on AO3 to bookmark and comment stories that I like. I don’t plan to post my fanfictions there at least yet, although I might change my mind later if I feel like switching from FanFiction.Net to AO3 is a good idea – or that I can juggle them both, my main art platform and my local files.
Twitter: My Twitter account. Currently completely inactive aside from automated tweets because I deleted the app from my phone to get more space and decided not to redownload it when I no longer needed the freed space. I’m probably better off without it at least for now.
Smashwords: My small account which I made to get some books which were on 100% discount. No books to be published yet, so nothing to see there for now.
Wattpad: My account I set up to read stories there. I probably won’t post my stories there. The windysilver handle was already taken, so I had to put a _ there to be able to make an account just like with Twitter.
Twitch: Since I’m looking for other options, my account just exists there right now. I’m considering either YouTube’s streaming or something other than that or Mixer.
Tumblr: My Tumblr blog which has been abandoned and inactive for ages. I haven’t shut it down yet, so it’s still there.
