The Other SideBehind every light,
                        there is a terrible darkness.
Behind every person,
                        their shadow looms,
                                                   twice as tall.
Behind every door,
                        there is an unknown emptiness.
Behind every smile,
                        there are heavy tears,
                                                   just waiting to be shed.

Megaman X9 Image Cutscene: Sid's Announcement by ultimatemaverickx

(After you defeat 1st Maverick)

Dr. Craig Sid makes a worldwide announcement to the humans affected on the present maverick attacks. He expresses sympathy over the humans harmed by the Old generation Reploid mavericks. Showing a kind heart, he offers a newly built human settlement near the Jakob elevator. The settlement will only be for humans to secure them from another maverick attacks. He welcomes any humans who wanted to reside to that place. It was dubbed by Dr. Craig Sid, “The Sanctuary”. Humans are pleased with the announcement. Many humans immediately go to the sanctuary Dr. Sid proposes but some stayed to their places because they don’t trust the reploids anymore.

Hearing this, Dr. Sid gained the trust of X and Zero. The hunters realizes that it was Dr. Sid who created the Sanctuary.

Megaman X9 Image Cutscene: Parasite by ultimatemaverickx

(After you defeat 2nd Maverick)

The Headquarters receives a transmission for X and Zero from Dr. Sid. He had uncovered the cause of comatose of Axl.  It was a parasite implanted by Lumine.  In that case, the parasite wants to gain control over its host Axl. Luckily, the parasite can fully gain control of Axl by 2 months. Good thing the hunters brought Axl to them earlier or else they might lose him. Dr. Sid assures X and Zero that he will provide immediate medication to exterminate the parasite that would dominate his body.

X and Zero along with their comrades were shocked on Axl’s state. They converse that it is possibly a new type of virus functioning like a parasite. However X and Zero can’t go to the research facility to check on Axl due to their mission to destroy present Mavericks.

Megaman X9 Image Cutscene: Beautiful Sight by ultimatemaverickx

 (After you defeat 3rd Maverick)

Many Humans gathers on “The Sanctuary” Dr. Sid proposes. They were joyful of the accommodation they have received. Dr. Sid welcomes them to The Sanctuary as an eternal human settlement for peace. The Sanctuary is a well-structured place as if it is a paradise meant for humans. It is well abundant with resources necessary for living. It has many housing structure to accommodate more humans. It was like a prosperous city.  Dr. Sid had exceeded the humans expectations about the settlement.  The place is near the Jakob Elevator and the Elevator is a beautiful sight to humans. They’re amazed how New Generation reploids created a structure reaching space. Because of the Sanctuary Dr. Sid provided, humans is starting to like the new generation reploids.

                                             Mituna by yeagar



you were humming to yourself in the school cafeteria. you were humming (your favourite song) to yourself. "Hey doll, come s1t w1th us!" yelled a familiar voice. you turned to see rufioh waving at you. you smiled and sat at the table with him. you looked around to see kankri going on a rant to karkat who was covering his hears. mituna who for a second there you thought he was staring at you? cronus who winked at you, kurloz and then rufioh in front of you. 

"And s9 thats why 6lah 6lah 6lah....." ranted kankri. you chuckled and began to eat your peanut butter and jelly sandwich (if you are allergic to peanut butter then im sorry but you will have to deal with it).

"H3Y Y/N! W4NN4 C0M3 7O MY PL4C3 4F73R SCH00L?" asked mituna. you looked up and were about to answer but cronus cut you off, "pfft, im sure doll face wvould rather hang out with cro cro instead of fliptu-OW!" kurloz had kicked him. "yes mituna, id love to come to your house after school." you said. "Gr347! 533 Y0U 4F73R 5CH00L" said mituna.

le time skip to after school~

you were sitting in mituna's room. "H3Y Y/N, W4NN4 G0 70 B3D N0W?" asked mituna. "yeah sure, but i have no pjs..." you said. "then sleep in your underwear, i do." said mituna. you blushed but accepted. you began to take off your shirt (or dress) and took off your bottoms. when you looked up you saw mituna in nothing but his boxers. you saw that he had a six pack but wasn't really that buff. you blushed when you saw him but you shook it off and lay down and shut your eyes.

you couldn't sleep at all, you were wide awake but had your eyes still closed. before you knew it you felt something tickle your stomach. you opened your eyes to find that mituna was planting chaste kisses up and down your stomach. you blushed a deep crimson as he done it.

"m-mituna.. what are you d-doing?" you asked while getting up. Mituna got up as well and pinned your front against the wall. He pinned your wrists against the wall as he kissed your neck "54Y 17... Y0U KN0W Y0U LOVE ME, 54Y 1T..." He whispered into your neck. you blushed harder as he was beginning to suck and then bite at your neck. a little bit of blood came out but he licked it up. 
"w-why?" you studdered.

"Y/N... 1 H4V3 B33N F4LL1NG F0R Y0U F0R 4 WH1L3 NOW... 4ND 1 W45 700 5HY 70 3V3N 5P34K 70 Y0U... 1 L0V3 Y0U Y/N... " mituna whispered into your ear. "i love you too mituna..." you whispered. he turned you over and kissed you on the lips. you began to moan helplessly.

you both pulled away and mituna put his forehead against yours. "M4735PR17S?" "Matesprits" you smiled.

--from the other side of the door--

"ii told you they were iin love" whispered sollux. tavros nodded in agreement
"BETTER PAY UP (:<B" whispered a smiling? karkat to jake
"dammit" jake moaned as he took out his wallet and gave karkat a $20
"i am so going to record this" giggled a long chestnut haired girl (me :) (Smile) ) as she took out an i pad and went on the recording app.

How to get feedback on dA

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 24, 2014, 2:36 PM


We all joined this site, more or less for this reason, to get feedback on our art. The whole point of submitting art online is for people to see it and hear what they think about it. 

Now there are a lot of deviants out there who get little to no feedback and as a result ask the people who faved their art to comment or go to random people on dA and ask for them to look at their art or comment in the hopes that the person will be kind enough to return the favor. 
A message to the people who do that, you're doing it all wrong.
Sure, if you ask 20 people who faved your drawing what they thought about it, you might get 1 or 2 answers, but in return, you'll be ignored by say 10 people and you'll annoy 8 people. I get these comments and i'm telling you, begging for feedback is not the way to go, if someone didn't comment when they fave, what makes you think forcing their hand is the right way to go? 
A fav is a compliment, take it a it is. Not everyone has time to comment, but you should be happy they took the time to look at your art and click that fav button. 

Also, commenting on random deviants and expecting them to return the favor might leave you disappointed. There are many friendships that can be forged this way but it's tedious because many deviants aren't very active on dA, many are just interested in receiving comments and don't even reply, and many are happy to receive your comment but have no time/don't feel like returning the favor. That is especially the case with popular artists who receive lots of comments and literally don't have the time to answer/comment/ check out people's galleries. So if you want to do it this way, it's ok, but you could try to comment on deviations who have few to 0 comments. Check to see if they answer to their comments, if they don't, chances are they don't really care for giving and receiving feedback (or they might be interested in receiving feedback but are sure as hell not going to give you any).

Most deviants wait for people to come to them and comment, and that's a legitimate way of doing it. But if you really don't feel like waiting for that to happen and don't want to leave this to chance then here are your options:

1. Comment for comment group, i will even list a few in case you don't know how to search for groups on dA :iconprojectcomment: read their projects and journals and apply to get feedback there. You will have to comment in return but isn't it much better to comment knowing that you will receive feedback as well? 
more groups: :iconproject-comment: :iconiwantfeedback: :iconanimangafeedbackclub: :iconcomment-club: :iconcomment-revolution: :iconcommentart: :iconfeedbackfrenzy: 

2. critique groups - if you're interested in in-depth comments and critiques, there are groups for that as well. 
Critique groups:
:iconcritiquecommunity: :icongoldencritique-club: :iconcritique-exchange: :iconcritique-it: :iconcritique-boutique: :iconcritiquegeeks:

3. Thumbshare in forums. forum.deviantart.com/showcase/… bet many of you didn't know that even existed :)

4. Be in the community. Give llamas, browse the undiscovered section, comment in the forums and give other people feedback, but not just random people but people who asked for feedback in the thumbshare or the feedback groups, they are most likely to be grateful for your comment and return the favor. Don't just wait for them to come to you, try to be the one to make the first step. 

I am by no means an expert, this is just what I would do. I get enough feedback and i am very happy with it. If you know of other good methods to get feedback then you can suggest it here and i will include it in this journal.

If you want my oppinion on a particular drawing, you can write a link in this journal and i will try to answer to as many people as possible.


Also, please fav this journal so that many people can see it and have this information. You'd be surprised how many deviants out there have no idea how to find these feedback groups.
I also encourage you to comment on each other's linked drawings in this journal, but you don't have to if you don't want to, but you'll make someone happy if you do.

oh lol actually instead of 200 or 400. I will just go for the KILL ONE THOUSAND POINTS YEAHHHHH :iconairpunchplz:
Over the past couple days I’ve had a number of people write me comments basically saying “You’re becoming too preachy, you’ve lost a fan.” And outside the silliness of publicly mic-dropping like that, it got me wondering... what?

Ya see, It’s always surprises me when someone says that I’m becoming too preachy, when in fact I’ve been preachy from the beginning. Don’t believe me? Take a look below!

This is not a complete list by any stretch of the imagination, but these are essentially THE MOST controversial comics and illustrations I’ve ever done in the past 10 years.

2004 - Made a picture about how no one really cares about Global Warming andysartworks.com/global-warmi…
2005 - Took the side of Jark in the Deviant Art hostile overthrow controversy. andysartworks.com/i-support-ja…
2007 and Onward - Made a series of “Danny and Spot” comics dedicated towards defending the Wii from the hatred hardcore gamers had over it. tompreston.deviantart.com/gall…
2008 - Took a stand against Anime because I had just been burned by the Anime club and was still resentful and bitter about it. andysartworks.com/west-vs-east
2008 - Made a Howard and Nester comic because I was pissed off at the shitty comic that officially ran in Nintendo Power reintroducing him to the public andysartworks.com/howard-and-n…
2008 - Took a stand against Christians not understanding other religions celebrate their religious holidays the same time as Christmas andysartworks.com/seasons-gree…
2008 - Made a comic where a group of Pirate girls insulted men alexzepirate.com/a-female-crew
2008 - Took a stand against California’s Proposition 8 andysartworks.com/forbidden-lo…
2008 - Made an illustration showing my support of Obama (which might seem moot now but at the time it was HIGHLY controversial) andysartworks.com/obamaman
2009 and Onward - Have made numerous LGBT support illustrations for various LGBT holidays or events andysartworks.com/the-dip
2010 - Made fun of the PS3’s blatant copying of the Wiimote andysartworks.com/hypocrisy
2010 - Made fun of Right-wing patriots of America andysartworks.com/patriotism
2010 - Made an illustration expressing my hatred of George Lucas’s continual BOTCHING of the Star Wars franchise andysartworks.com/i-hate-georg…
2010 - Made a comic about how much it annoyed me that all the old American continuity for various Nintendo games were being phased out in favor of the official Japanese continuity andysartworks.com/localization
2010 - Made an illustration about the ecological crisis that arose when a oil tanker crashed into the Gulf of Mexico andysartworks.com/death-of-the…
2011 and Ongoing - Started a whole new comic series dedicated to complaining about issues comic artists go through syacartoonist.com/archive/Tom-…
2011 - Made a comic about how Minecraft ISN’T evil based on a talk-show segment featuring very stupid people andysartworks.com/minecraft-is…
2011 - Made a comic about how wishy-washy people are about politics and Obama andysartworks.com/road-constru…
2012 - Made a new (if short lived) web series expressing my distain over various political issues soapboxderpy.com/archive/page3
2012 - Made an illustration about how Christianity takes up 78% of America yet thinks they’re somehow “in danger” from the 1.6% of Atheists andysartworks.com/faith-wars
2012 - Nearly everything I did for brentalfloss www.brentalflossthecomic.com/?…
2012 - Made a comic making fun of Miss California’s homophobic views - alexzepirate.com/the-beauty-pa…
2013 - Made a comic about the stupidness of Dragon Crown’s controversy tompreston.deviantart.com/art/…
2013 - Did the illustrations for brentalfloss’s PRIEST LIGHTNING youtube video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=W26QDp…
2014 - Have made a bunch of comics defending women’s rights in comics and explaining why the American Comic Book Industry right now is failing at them syacartoonist.com/archive/Tom-…
2014 - Made an illustration of how shitty Samus’s new shoes are for SSB4 andysartworks.com/fashion-savv…

And ALL of these have been sprinkled throughout a plethora of illustrations, jokes, comics, cartoons, and highly opinionated journals. I’ve very VOCALLY expressed my opinions on LGBT rights, racism, sexism, and have expounded about how I’m an atheist and extremely left-wing in my views.

So I don’t get it when people say I’m becoming too preachy. From where I sit, I’ve ALWAYS been preachy about pretty much anything under the sun. I will always voice my opinions (however right or wrong they might be). That’s what makes me, me.

Maybe it’s because a lot of the issues I was talking about, such as feminism and women’s rights, have started to become more of a thing all over the internet and not just in my small strata of it. Maybe my chiming into issue that I’ve always condemned seems like it’s “hopping on the bandwagon” or something. Or maybe they’re just tired of hearing these issues and my continual comics and journals expressing outrage that these issues still exist bothers them?

Bottom line is... I don’t know why anyone watching me would be angry about me expressing my opinions. That’s what I’ve ALWAYS done and it’s not gonna change. If you can’t handle that, then that’s your problem and you should absolutely not follow me anymore. But please, do not think I’m gonna change being vocal about issues I care about just because you’re sick of them. That ain’t gonna happen :)

Your Feedback


Thank you for the feedback on last week's Site Update! Here's some of what you had to say:
  • Feedback regarding the release of additional CSS options for Journal Skins was positive.
  • In response to the Discuss topic, some deviants mentioned trying out Way Back browsing a few times, while others said they had never tried using Way Back. For those who said they had used Way Back, they mentioned using it to find very specific deviations.

Discuss!
