Starting a Webcomic - Four Words You Need to Know"Just fucking do it"Starting a Webcomic - Four Words You Need to Know3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wanna preface this by saying that this is all opinion and observation, formed from my own experiences and perspective. In fact, I think it needs to be said that I create webcomics in a bit of a vacuum...
The other day I was talking with a graphic designer friend, and he mentioned how now and then he'd get together with other graphic designers just to hang out and share stories. He also mentioned that I don't have that with fellow web-comic artists or with other freelance illustrators. At the time he said this I sort of shrugged it off, but it's true and it's a bigger deal than I first thought. Sure, I have plenty of friends that have entered comic tournaments, or with aspirations of being webcomic creators, but few to none that really produce them. At the least, none I feel I can hang out with, online or off, and go "haha yeah fans amirite?" or "oh shit _____ linked to you?! sweet!". Most importantly, webcomics can be a work-intensive unrewarding hobby at times.

i notice, and have experienced countless times, that a lot of younger users on this site tend to do something akin to self depreciation when attempting to praise others work.
thats…really not ok. like really really not ok
im going to be using direct addressing pronouns “you” without actually referring to anyone specific, but, by you saying something like “oh ill never be as good as you” or “im so jealous of your work” or “i want your style/skills” in a directly envious and self depreciating tone, you are honestly doing NO ONE any favors. its rude, childish, and hurtful to say things like that, to both sides. you think i want to hear you talk down about yourself in an attempt to make me feel good? why would that make me feel g

Homes Smell Ya Later prop tutorial-thing!Sooooo... yes.Homes Smell Ya Later prop tutorial-thing!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will attempt to NOT ramble on this thing because that is definitely a thing I do.
Recently I was asked about how I made the prop for my Karkat cosplay--the Homes Smell Ya Later--so without a long preamble, I'll just kind of outline it here as best I can. Fortunately, I took a fairly decent crop of progress pics!
Materials used in making this prop:
plywood 2 chunks of 1/2 inch thick MDF (Medium-Density Fiberboard) about 5 in. long and no more than 2 in. wide wood glue four 3/4 inch screws wood putty wood filler matte acrylic paint acrylic sealer (it's one of those little bottles that people ignore that is sold with regular paint) Mod Podge Hard Coat (purple jar) matte acrylic varnish
Tools used in making this prop:
Dremel push drill (but a regular drill will work fine) scroll saw hand saw clamp wood rasp (a pretty g

Away With Thee, Mental IllnessOh, hai. So I'm gonna talk about something totally personal to me, yet something that's shared by millions of people every day. And I NEVER talk about this stuff. For the first time in seven years I've only just managed to talk about it to someone and it felt good, and after that I was able to tell someone else, which also felt good, so now I'm gonna tell all y'all.Away With Thee, Mental Illness2 years ago in Personal More Like This
(Please note that this isn't a cry for attention or sympathy. I'm just sharing my story with the kindling hope that it might help or comfort people who suffer in a similar way).
When I was seventeen I inexplicably developed a case of social anxiety. I don't know much about the hows or whys but I can tell you this: it totally messed me up. Back then I was in college (all you Americans call it High School) and although I had some awesome friends, some days I couldn't bring myself to leave the house much less go on crazy social adventures out of hours.
Schooling was an issue. I missed so mainly classes. Sometimes I'd be off fo

OH WAIT ONE THING DID HAPPEN AND IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER
Rowan (:iconmuffinpoodle and I went to a show because of a certain cast member who was in it, and afterward when we hung around to say hi to him, he remembered us from a previous few meetings. And then he told us it wouldn't be weird if we went to the same bar as him and the rest of the cast. AND THEN WE GOT INVITED TO SIT WITH THEM AND HAVE DRINKS. So we spent the next hour and a half drinking cider and talking to this performer we both adore. We talked about a lot of stuff, some pointless and some more serious. And as a result I am currently writing a piece of original fiction inspired by one of the conversations we had.
It features a character with the same first name as the performer in question. And when it's done, and Rowan has drawn pictures to go with it, I'm going to publish it through a

After struggling to draw regularly for so long, attempting something like this is possibly not the best idea, butů oh well! I won't get it done in thirty days, but getting it done at all would be more than enough for me!
I'm going to put the same comments on them as I do on my Tumblr, because the only reason I hadn't started submitting them here already was because I was worried about thinking of something different to say. I realised that was silly.
Some of them will probably end up just being quick sketches, so sorry about that in advance. But I'm not really sorry, because it feels too nice to post thiiings ^u^
SO YEP. Gonna draw thirty pictures of Farry (?) fluff, if I can. Haha, Farry fluff. Sounds like fairy floss. Which it is.

Alias: Taiyou, Tai
Name Meaning: Sun
Hair: Long Blonde Locks
Eyes: Bright Blue
Sexual Orientation: Bisexual
Relationship Status: Single
Speaker of: Japanese, some English
Hobbies: Drinking, Training, Reading, Taking walks
Taiyou was abandoned as a baby in an alley and has no idea who his real parents are. It is obvious that they were foreigners because he has blonde hair and blue eyes, which was a rare sight in Japan at this time.
He was raised by a man who was kind enough to take him in when he found him and was surrounded by a loving family growing up. They helped him feel wanted when others around him taunted him for being different. He had a tough time fitting in with other children and had very little friends growing up.
His adoptive father was a professional Samurai, who taught Tai everything he knows today. After his fathers death

Hell yeah! Aizen is back! 8D Now hopefully he helps out. That's what made this chapter for me, is seeing Aizen being all calm and cool once more.
...When in the past it made me angry when he would just be calm and cool while cutting everyone down. XD
Y'know, during the arrancar arc I was hoping that Kenpachi would go up against Aizen. I was really sad when it ended and Ken just came back from Hueco Mundo. It would've been so epic. Then again, Kubo would've pulled another troll and had him cut down. :iconnotimpressedplz: ...Maybe.
So Aizen's reiatsu is still doing that thing where it cuts people down just for being near him? Don't try giving him a hug, fangirls and boys. :iconimhappyplz:
And stupid, frickin' Juha Bach... I hate you. I wish you were dead. I wish Kubo would just stop trollin' us and kill you already!
But Ichigo is being awesome again. 8D Telling stupid Juha Bach off and telling him he doesn't care that he's aliv
