A quick lesson in character designA Quick Lesson in Character DesignA quick lesson in character design3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
What's the most important thing for an artist to have when drawing a character? Well a design obviously, I mean we can't have our characters just running around naked can we? Don't answer that.
Anyway, a character's design is a crucial component to who they are. What they wear, their hairstyle, and even the color of their clothing helps define them. A character's personality as well as their interests should be reflected in the articles of clothing that they wear. This gives people a little sneak peek into a character's personality and can add tremendous amounts of depth to a character.
That's not to say that having a random design is bad, I know there are a few artists who pick a design because it looks interesting or because they want to try new things and there is nothing wrong with that. Sometimes though, this can work against an artist, especially if the design gives off an entirely different message than the artist had intended. Enou

A common staple in many B-movies, Zombies are often depicted as taking over the world. Having watched many of those movies I have decided to compile my own Zombie Survival Guide after reading the one at Kuro5hin.org. This guide will be posted in many places I know of so that if anyone comments I will be able to make a better one later. To date I have not read Max Brook's Zombie Survival Guide, though I intend to. As for the debate I've seen on the Fast Zombies vs. Slow Zombies, this guide is written with Slow Zombies in mind, for if they are really dead bodies they would have series body control issues, and under the assumption that the outbreak is a large one that would last several years at least.
Preparation: (what you did for Y2K)

Now that was a nice-sized explosion, if I do say so myself. The Chief said, shielding his face from the debris that rained down around the two super-soldiers. As they waited for Samus ship to maneuver its way over to them, the Chief had been experimenting with his matter-conversion device with some typically Spartan results. He had a rocket launcher hefted onto his shoulder, and had been blasting ever-increasing piles of grenades and other explosives into dust.
You might wanna be careful not to over-do it, Chief. Cortana warned, dividing her attention between the Mjolnir armors systems and the Chiefs activities. The converter seems to be drawing its power primarily from your shield generator, so theres a momentary dip in protection each time you use it.

Apex clouds converged around the azure mountain of ice. The polar ocean rumbled, somewhere beneath, grappling into the iceberg, gnawing away at its foundations.
Grim, fluttering celestial arc released a blinding sphere of light has from the cloudy grasp. Scorching beams of sunlight smashed into the iceberg with relentless fury and the iceberg screeched in fear of their attack as glittering veins of cobalt and silver pulsated upon its surface. The temperature was rising, as the iceberg drifted south, pushed forward by the slashing wind. The iceberg fought against the warm currents till its last breath, but all was hopeless. An unyielding crack started to crawl across its surface, explosions of cold mist whooshing as the iceberg crumbled, expiring away; connecting with the clouds and the ocean.

Involuntary testingI stared at the computer screen in front of me. All I wanted to do was to close the dratted window, but I knew that was unwise. As part of the school's e-learning day, I was required to sit through a series of pre-recorded lectures, followed by a heap of online quizzes. According to the teacher in charge, attendance would be taken, and those who didn't access the lectures or quizzes would be subject to CWO (Corrective work order). Therefore, playing games was out of the question.Involuntary testing3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The entrance to the Sanctuary Depths is just past the Fortress Temple courtyard, to the right.
Samus had remembered that area, the Luminoths final defensive position before the Fortress generator. The door on the right wall had been blocked, and when she mentioned it to U-Mos, he had assured her that his people had already cleared away the debris, and that there would be an elevator on the other side which could take her down into the storage area. Descending the lift into the courtyard itself, she recalled the battle that had taken place in this rooms Dark Aether mirror. Taking the designs for their Quad sentry robots to the next level, the Luminoth had begun designing a massive war machine that could help them defend the Fortress. The giant four-legged walker was dubbed Quadraxis, but the Fortress fell to the Ing before Quadraxis could be completed. Not one to ignore such an opportunity, the Ing took Quadraxis back to Dark Aether,

The College Drag, Part 33I slept for about an hour till my stomach woke me up. It was half past two o'clock and I hadn't eaten lunch and was unconscious for breakfast. I shambled my way to the kitchen upstairs and began to root around for anything to eat. I was so hungry that I would just find something to eat and then just eat it then and there. Leftovers from Mom's meatloaf a few days ago, devoured. A microwave bowl full of macaroni casserole, emptied. A foil full of frozen hamburger patties, ripped open, flash fried with dragon fire and chomped. Once I have meat in my belly, I felt better but I was still hungry. I stiffed the air to find another food source and my snout picked up something. I just sniffed my way closer and closer to whatever it was, walking out the door and towards the barn.

His body was torn to shreds; many injuries were clearly visible across his entire body.

The boy limped forward to take a closer look at the creature but as he stood over body of the creature he saw the true horror that lay before him.
