Educate YourselfSo you want to be a writer? Listen--there's much more that goes in to this than just a basic high school education in grammar and spelling, and then splattering your heart and brain on a page.Educate Yourself3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first thing you need to do is read. Read novels from every genre you can think of. Read things outside your comfort box. Read anything and everything. And please, for heaven's sakes, read the classics. Yes, they might be hard at first, but after you finish a few, you will find yourself a more eloquent reader and writer. Challenge your brain, don't just give it the easy stuff. This is how you get smarter. It doesn't matter that they don't seem appealing to you, give them a fair chance--at least some of them will. These books are classics for a reason, and whether or not you like them, you should be able to appreciate the artistry and understand what it is about them that makes them classics.
You know how athletes need to work out and practice their sport? Well, writers need to do the sa

~~The Royalty Contest~~
It's fast-approaching Christmas, which is a time that a lot of people enjoy. In the spirit of things, we wanted to run a Christmas contest, but, by scanning over DeviantArt and other groups, we saw that, naturally, a lot of other groups had the same idea. We don't much fancy running a contest that's almost identical to other contests on DA – a simple Christmas-themed pony contest is something that you can take part in elsewhere. We also realised that, if we did do yet another Christmas pony contest, we'd likely see a lot of people submitting a single contest entry to several similarly-themed contests. It would be the natural thing to do, and so we wouldn't necessarily blame anyone if t

The Pied Piper
In the tale of the Pied Piper, we have a village overrun with rats. A man arrives dressed in clothes of pied (a patchwork of colors) and offers to rid the town of the vermin. The villagers agree to pay a vast sum of money if the piper can do it – and he does. He plays music on his pipe which draws all the rats out of the town. When he returns for payment – the villagers won't cough up so the Pied Piper decides to rid the town of children too! In most modern variants, the piper draws the children to a cave out of the town and when the townsfolk finally agree to pay up, he sends them back. In the darker original, the piper leads the children to a river

Double Dragon NEONHi there guys! As maybe you know Double Dragon NEON was released the last week! and whoa! It was an incredible project! I´ve got several notes and emails asking if I was involved in the game: "billy and Jimmy looks like your charas", "the girls!", etc... so, yes! I worked in chara design and concept art. Was really an honor not only to be part of a franchise that I love like Double Dragon (as a kid, I spent hours playing the original game on arcades and then withe the NES version) but also to work with one of the game developers I deeply admire like Wayforward in this love letter to the 80´s. You can play it right now in your Xbox 360 and PS3!!! I hope you like it! I love brawlers! hope to upload some of the images soon tooDouble Dragon NEON3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Minicomic contest No 2!!! Results!Hello everyone. Salagir there.Minicomic contest No 2!!! Results!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For starters, I'm very sorry about my slow answer time. As you can imagine, I don't have much free time these days...
All my congratulations and my big thanks to all the contestants !! 24 entries ! It's amazing !
Thank you all for these fun reading and for making me so proud that DBM exists.
I've noted the creations separately on drawing and scenario/realization. It's from 0 to 5. It lacks details on purpose, because it's my opinion and point of view, and can't be accurately scored. I have personal preferences on styles and on scenarios, that's for sure. So the scores are of course unfair.
The second and only other judge is Foenidis, scoring on her own point of view too.
The comments are mine, sometime containing part of Foenidis thoughts.
A quite big number of contestants will be published on DBM and will be put as official update on the site, being seen by about 50,000 readers worldwide. How many, which ones? Depends on many things, so I can't tell now.

Some random girl really wants you to know that she is unique.
She is the one sitting in the back of the class reading a manga with about as much literary value as Twilight, when everyone else is actually doing things that count towards their future.
She is the one watching yaoi with unrealistic, unhealthy relationships and being forever alone when all of the other girls are sleeping around.
She is the one sitting inside, stuffing her face with sweets and getting diabetes when the others are starving themselves to look pretty.
When all of her classmates are obsessing over Justin Bieber, she is fawning over J-rockers and listening to J-rock because her taste in men is just as bad as theirs.
On the weekends, when the other girls are out shopping and having fun, she is sitting inside watching anime because she has no social life outside of the internet.
You say Ke$ha? She says Ayumi Hamasaki, Morning Musume and Ai Otsuka because she has no music taste!
