Fan Buttons
IkeFanButton by RockTheGolem
DariusFanButton by RockTheGolem
I've seen a bunch of fan buttons made during my time here on DeviantArt. But newer ones seem to be fairly hard to come by. So, I figured, why not give people a place to go to have their own made? Feel free to message me the details of what you would like your button to be of. I can use whatever font you wish, and the button will be laid out according to your specifications!
YouTube Wallpapers/Banners
QueenOfKeyBlade YouTube Banner 2 by RockTheGolem
BTDubs Inc Second Anniversary YouTube Banner by RockTheGolem
NikoruChan18 Yuki Nagato YouTube Banner by RockTheGolem
Vocal Park YouTube Banner by RockTheGolem
RockTheGolem YouTube SOS Brigade Banner by RockTheGolem
TIDE Promotional Ad 1 by RockTheGolem
I've been designing customized YouTube wallpapers/banners for myself and for others since I first discovered it was an option. All of my designs are set to the highest resolution YouTube allows, and are laid out to be guaranteed to fit in the banner area of your YouTube page, no matter where it is being viewed or what media source it's being viewed on: cellular phones, computer monitors, or even your Xbox/Playstation. You won't have to worry about your avatar icon or your external link icons getting in the way, because I take all of that into account when I make my designs. However simple or complex the design may be, I can make it work for your page!
Transparent Vector Images
Nicole Oppai Anime Vector by RockTheGolem
Battle Bunny Riven Vector by RockTheGolem
Takeshi as Me Vector 2 by RockTheGolem
EbonyIvory81 Vector Art - Request by RockTheGolem
If there is an anime picture you'd like to have converted into this style, I can do it for you, and even modify it to an extent (like the glasses and facial hair). Just let me know which picture you want and the color scheme you'd like to have. These images can also be placed on a solid color of your choosing at no extra charge.

Note: The price listed is for an image with one character. An image with multiple characters will increase the cost by +10 points per character. 
Vector Images w/ Background
You Make My Heart Go...Nmm Mori Valentine Vector by RockTheGolem
Be Mine? Valentine by RockTheGolem
Meljona by RockTheGolem
If instead of just the empty background you'd like to have something fancy, that can also be accommodated. Again, I just need an idea of what you'd like it to look like.

Note: The price listed is for an image with one character. An image with multiple characters will increase the cost by +10 points per character.

RockTheGolem's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
Hello all! My name is Dave! I'm a freelance Graphic Designer who is working towards earning his certificate in Computer Animation. I had a DeviantArt account a long time ago under a different name, but I was just using it as storage with some basic stuff I was messing around with. My style has drastically changed since then, and I've broadened my horizons to encompass multiple art forms. I sketch, draw, design digitally, sculpt, stage act, voice act, video/audio edit, sing, dance, and write stories. In the future I plan to add computer modeling/animation, directing and producing to my repertoire (preferably in that order). But, all things in due time.

In the meantime, you can also check out my YouTube account where I post some voice acting work and song covers. I also work for a few groups, including BTDubs Inc, Delirium Studios, and various others. Feel free to check them out! And if you're looking for help with a project and feel like I could be of assistance, feel free to drop me a line on there!……

Originally an article titled "100 Things Every 20-Something Needs To Realize In 2015", I think this information is relevant to everyone. Trust me, not everyone has life figured out after their 20s. I had to learn a lot of these the hard way, but most of them I figured out by watching other people's mistakes. So, I consider myself fortunate. Take it for what it's worth!

1. Chivalry is only dead if you let it die.

2. You can’t redo the most important moments in life. So do them right the first time around.

3. You shouldn’t date only for the sake of dating.

4. The way you see the world is your own personal version of the world — no one else shares the same exact version of reality.

5. It’s impossible to fail if you refuse to give up.

6. Often, we find that wrong decisions were what led us to the right place.

7. If your life is easy, then you’re not trying hard enough.

8. The “One” exists, but there’s more than just one of them out there.

9. If you keep sending nude pics, there’ll be no reason to want to see you naked in person.

10. If people aren’t adding to your life, they’re taking away from your life.

11. There are always opportunity costs; you can’t have it all.

12. Your health should always be your first priority.

13. Intelligence can be bought — and for a lot less than a college education.

14. America is no longer the greatest country in the world — at least not objectively.

15. Religion is both the greatest good and the greatest evil in the world.

16. Your religion isn’t any better or more righteous than anyone else’s. It’s just a different version of the same theory.

17. Humans aren’t any better than animals. We’re just smarter; there’s a difference.

18. People are mostly made by nurture, not nature.

19. There’s always another way to skin that cat.

20. Sex can be a beautiful thing, but it won’t be beautiful on its own.

21. Most of the foods we eat shouldn’t even be labeled as “food.”

22. You can easily survive by drinking nothing but water for the rest of your life.

23. Exercise is often the differentiating factor between being happy and being miserable.

24. Your life would be a lot better if you focused today’s actions on making you feel better tomorrow.

25. Simplicity is the key… to just about everything.

26. The simplest answer is an acceptable answer only if it actually solves the problem.

27. If you love them, tell them. A shocking number of individuals never get that chance.

28. Smoking weed won’t kill you, but it could make ruining your life much easier.

29. Just because it’s illegal doesn’t necessarily make it wrong.

30. Just because it’s legal doesn’t necessarily make it right, nor does it necessarily make it morally acceptable.

31. Violence only furthers the spread of hatred.

32. Killing or maiming, even when it’s supposedly for a greater cause, is almost always a selfish act.

33. Sometimes, the world we’re born into makes us into the monsters we see today. It’s not an excuse, however, only an explanation.

34. Change is always possible. Even if we can’t rewrite our story thus far, we certainly can change the way our story progresses and ends.

35. Sometimes, you are the problem.

36. We are slowly destroying the planet, and there is a high likelihood of the situation deteriorating at an exponential rate.

37. Media comprise a business that sells what sells, in whatever format it believes it will sell the most.

38. If you feel the need to brag, you probably don’t have anything worth bragging about.

39. If you want to succeed in life, then you’re going to have to put yourself out there.

40. If everybody loves you, then you’re not doing it right.

41. People are 10 times more likely to post a negative comment or give negative feedback than they are to give positive feedback — that goes for just about everything in life.

42. Everyone has an opinion. Remember that opinions are just opinions, not facts.

43. Making changes — lasting changes — isn’t a simple task because it doesn’t just require a change in action, it requires a change in mindset. Much of what we believe to be true right now will prove to be false in 50 years.

44. There is such a thing as good TV — unfortunately, most of it is garbage.

45. Reading a book a month can change your life.

46. If you don’t know, ask.

47. It’s great to be the smartest person in the room, but it’s much better to place yourself in rooms where there’s room for personal growth.

48. It takes roughly 10,000 hours and 10 years to truly master anything. Even the Greats couldn’t produce a masterpiece in less than nine years.

49. It’s OK to be nostalgic from time to time.

50. Most of the things created or performed around the world — both on a personal or business level — are made inefficiently, which means there’s always room for improvement.

51. You have to work hard and work smart in order to succeed.

52. Never allow someone to tell you that you can’t accomplish something.

53. Some things just take time.

54. Changing the world starts with changing how you see the world.

55. Leaders are born. Great leaders are made.

56. Living the life of your dreams is almost certainly a lot less expensive than you think it is.

57. Most people spend their lives working only to retire and do that what they could’ve been doing all along.

58. Life should be spent creating and improving.

59. If you want to be remembered, then you need to be great.

60. Romantic love is intense and exciting, while true love is much less turbulent and much deeper.

61. Most people aren’t completely illogical; they just base their thinking on fallacies and shallow inquiries.

62. Being free doesn’t mean being able to do whatever you want to do…

63. It means making progress toward a better life as seamlessly as possible.

64. Most people aren’t corrupt, but some people are.

65. You need to stop stereotyping.

66. Your life would be better if you focused on a handful of aspects and let the rest go.

67. There’s no such thing as talent. Sure, you can be more inclined to pick up and learn information in certain ways versus others, but no one is born a talented painter, runner, doctor, writer, orator.

68. Many animals are capable of loving, which means they’re capable of emotions very similar to those of human beings — both painful and pleasurable. It’s science.

69. If you can’t have fun without drinking, then you have a drinking problem.

70. Most women probably deserve not only to make as much as men, but to make more.

71. An alarming amount of people can’t define misogyny, yet use the word regularly.

72. Just because a guy has an opinion on, or about, women doesn’t make him misogynistic. That’s not what misogyny is.

73. Plenty of guys are assh*les — but they’re not all bad. It may take some time to weed out the duds, but it’s worth the wait.

74. If life gives you lemons, you should still do your best to squeeze out a Porsche.

75. If you want it bad enough, you’ll get it. If you don’t have it, you simply don’t want it enough — not yet, at least.

76. There’s not much worse than an opportunity missed. If you miss one once, make sure it’s the last time that happens.

77. If you don’t take that leap, you’ll never learn to fly.

78. Relationships are full-time jobs. Coasting along for too long will get you fired.

79. Most people don’t find their soulmates — but never let this deter you from continuing your search.

80. Most people fail not by losing, but by giving up.

81. There’s probably someone out there working more efficiently than you, doing all he or she can to reach the same goals you have.

82. When making a decision, only the outcome matters. So obvious, yet so often missed.

83. If you find someone worth loving, don’t let that person go. You’re probably just being silly even considering it.

84. Some people will never work together.

85. You never want to settle in life — in anything or any form.

86. It’s always impossible until someone proves everyone else wrong.

87. Work with good people. Hang out with good people. Love good people. Everything else will work itself out.

88. Appreciate everything you have and prepare for losing it all — eventually, we all lose everything.

89. Don’t work jobs you hate — just don’t do it.

90. You should think more and judge less.

91. Talking less and observing more is the best way to interact with others.

92. If you know you’re not going to finish it, don’t start it in the first place.

93. We all have a responsibility to help each other and to work toward making the world a better place for all living things.

94. People can change. They just don’t do so very often.

95. Having a strong bond with your family makes all the difference.

96. Your family doesn’t necessarily need to be related by blood.

97. There’s no reason to be a piece of sh*t. You’re just making the world a nastier place because you feel like it.

98. Most people don’t care. We can always find a handful of people, however, who do. And that’s all we need.

99. If you want to be wealthy, you need to make the right acquaintances.

100. In the end, you make your own decisions. If you’re happy with the way you live your life, keep on living it that way.
