Tricksters in Modern LiteratureArticle Series: Tricksters in Literature, Part 5 of 5Tricksters in Modern Literature2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
For the final installment in the Trickster article series, we’ll be discussing tricksters in modern literature and the ways, if any, in which these modern-day tricksters are similar to those in mythology and folklore, folktales and fables, and fairytales and fantasy.
The artwork in this article focuses on tricksters currently in popular media, mostly films and television, since art of tricksters in modern-day literature is difficult to find. Many thanks to the artists for allowing me to feature their gorgeous artwork in these articles.
So, how does the modern-day trickster compare to tricksters we discussed in past articles? Let’s find out.
But first, say hello to one of the most well-known and beloved tricksters of our time:

OBJECTIVE: CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND STORY BUILDING
I began working pretty heavily on LMS during the first quarter of 2009. I had now a handful of characters, a rough idea of the story, and a general scope of what I wanted the book to be. To get started, I felt every book should have a theme. Movies do, right?
Spider-Man: Great powers, great responsibility.
Batman: Be more than just a man, a symbol, and be remembered a legend.
Star Wars: The myth of a heroes destiny, and the truth that allows him to be set free.
Who was Gabriel? What type of character or archetype was he? What were his rises and

I'm not Whisperwings and I can't express what all the comments and heartfelt expressions have meant so much to not only me but my husband and son as well.
Sometimes it's not until someone you love is gone that you realize what a loving, caring & helpful person they were to so many people.
Our family is very close and we know that Alicia was the upbeat heart, the one who always wanted to decorate for the holidays and kept us doing things together even as the kids got into college. She was our glue of fun! Our traditionalist; Tacos for thanksgiving..don't ask it's a long story.
Our thanks go out to all of you who let us know just what Alie has done for you. If is was her attitude about the cancer or something as simple a kind word in reply to your comments on her art. She loved when people commented on her art.
I wanted to let you all know that her book has not been forgotten. I have been going through the notes she has received ab
Lazy Nezumi stroke smoothing for Photoshop.Hey everyone, just wanted to bring to your attention a plugin that might be useful for you. It's called Lazy Nezumi, and its main function is to help smooth your strokes out when you're drawing. So, if you want really tight, smooth lineart, or just clean lines in general it's pretty great. In a way, it lets you create a digital stroke closer to how you would on paper or a canvas, it just gives you more control. It's akin to the Lazy Mouse feature in Zbrush, or the Steady Stroke feature in Sketchbook Pro (which I'd highly recommend for anyone doing lineart, it has other great features as well).Lazy Nezumi stroke smoothing for Photoshop.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
There's a free demo for 30 days you can try out first and see if you like it. It has other features as well, but the one I find the most useful is the "pulled string" method under position processing, when you click details. It's something you might have to try to understand, but it can be super useful.
The main issue I see is that

THE NEXT THREE YEARS OF MY LIFE
I had received a job offer at Microsoft. I guess this could have been one of my first 'big time' jobs, so I was a little ecstatic. It felt like a slow build to get to this point, after numerous indie games and under the table freelance jobs, but finally it had come.
I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I
Calendars + mini contestI blame my dad for this. He never tells me ANYTHING.Calendars + mini contest3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Long story short: he said he wanted to make a calendar with my pictures, I told him sure why not, I thought that he'd make ONE, and then I ended up with a whole box.
SO. I've been handing them out to family and friends and now I still have 7 of them left aaand... Here's the plan.
I'm going to have a contest, there will be 3 winners who will each recieve one calender. You won't get too much time though since the year has already started and yeah... You know what the point of a calendar is so I don't want to drag it out too much.
I'll be back with the theme for the contest and rules and that kind of stuff in a few days. 8D
Then there's always people who don't want to participate/don't have time/don't draw, whatever the reason.
Sooo... The other 4 will be up for sale. I'm warning you though... I was at the post office today and if you're living outside of europe just the shipping will cost 14 USD D: But if you're interested idk... note
Turtles Production Shut DownVICTORY!Turtles Production Shut Down2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Paramount has shut down pre-production on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot over "script problems".
Translation; Paramount realised that if they continued down the path Bay was going, fans would probably burn their studios to the ground.
With luck (and a dollop of common sense) the project will be shelved altogether and the IP left fallow until competent directors/producers are brought on board.
I'm going to pretend my little campaign helped with this
