“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
― Margaret Atwood
In the UK Spring is most definitely here. And with it comes a plethora of Photo-graphical opportunities. Whilst there are the flowers, trees and in particular blossoms coming into bloom there are also the youngsters. Baby Animals! Birds beginning to nest and in general it seems - an influx of human babies too! There is no shortage of opportunities to take a photo at this time of year here and there are some useful tips to get you out and about making the most of the season...
Use sunrises and sunsets - the lightest part of the day at lunchtime and the dusky evenings to capture spring landscapes at their best. Utilize the foggy mornings with sun streaming through too! Avoid white light - at this time of year it's incredibly harsh and doesn't do much to enhance your photos. And also k

A while back I decided that it would be best to create a place where tutorials that are vital to Manga/Anime artists to have a home, an easy place to reach if they felt that they ever needed it. One by one articles featuring tutorials based off of specific trades and mediums will be posted, and in the end a master article that'll unite them all together.

I have completely signed off from college with two A grades in Performing Arts
I applied for about 20 jobs
Got an interview request from superstore ASDA
Went in for a big group interview (there were 8 of us)
Got told to wait about a week for the results of wether or not they think I am suitable, then either get turned away or get to go in for a one on one interview...
Got a phone call THE NEXT DAY saying "Hi, I used to live at your address!!! Oh, and we want you to come in tomorrow for a one on one meeting" Soooo much for the one week call thing
Went in to the one on one meeting (three days ago) and then she said, we will call you in about a week letting you know if you got the job.
Now... I'm a nervous wreck waiting for the results!!!!!
So yeah... Busy bee... But... LOTS of photos to upload

key with a dreamy atmosphere in the background. Or something
that reminds us of fairytales. Portraits, landscapes with a magical spirit etc...

Rythian flew through the forest, his mind focused on only one thing: the nuke that had gone off and killed Zoey. He had been combing the woods for hours, looking for one thing. "It's a giant castle!" he muttered to himself. "How hard can it be to find?" Eventually, as the sun slipped behind the horizon, he found what he was looking for: a giant castle, with a blue glowing forcefield around it. "All right, Duncan..." he said grimly. "Game's up."
Back at Blackrock...
Zoey sat up slowly, her vision blurry. "Ow, my head," she moaned. "Those nukes did some real damage." She surveyed the ruins of the castle. Ironically, an enderman sat next to her, looking around with an air of surprise that it had found itself in such a place. "Hello," she whispered. It groaned and raised its eyes to hers.
"Yoouuu..." Zoey heard a sound coming from the enderman's throat. It was talking to her! "Yooouuu must goooo toooo the castleeeee..."

"What are you doing? Why isn't breakfast ready yet?" Hannah demanded.
"Sorry Hannah I'm doing all I can." Zoey replied scrambling some eggs. She hated doing this because she was a vegetarian. But she had to do what they told her to, they could easily kill her, they were much more powerful.
"Zoey why haven't you scrubbed the floor yet?" Minty questioned.
"I'll do that after I'm done making breakfast." Zoey said putting the eggs into a pan.
"So word on the street is that prince Rythian is hosting a ball tomorrow." Hannah told Minty.
"No way! I didn't know that." Minty said in disbelief.
"I'd love to get a peice of him." Hannah said.
"What about Lewis?" Zoey asked setting down their plates.
"Who said you could talk? No one that's who." Hannah said. "Now off with you, go scrub the floors."

Almost Everything..."No..." Rythian uttered as he looked to the crater above where his home used to be. But that didn't matter to him right now, none of that mattered. The only thing that did was the fact that Zoey was no where in sight.Almost Everything...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
He flew down to the bottom checking everywhere for the red-haired girl he loved. Sadness overtook him as he flew out and to the shore where she first fell from the sky. He dropped to his knees as tears flowed down his cheeks. The only thing keeping him sane was gone, gone for good, not in some silly rebel camp; or some stupid scientist in a lab coat.
Head in hands, he couldn't help but think of such a coward he has been. Always trying to hide his feelings, never saying what he truely thought. If only that message had been sent, if only he'd spoken those three words, maybe things would be different. But what did that matter now? He couldn't do anything about that now. It was too late.
If only he had one more chance...

A giant boom rocked the world, and Zoey's final sentence was abruptly cut off.
Rythian, far away with Tee as he was, heard the boom of nukes going off. Without a glance at Tee, he instantly flew in the direction of Blackrock Hold, thinking one thing: Please, don't let me be too late for Zoey.
He broke through the trees and saw... nothing. There was nothing where Blackrock had once stood. Nothing but an empty hole, with a girl's broken body lying inside.
"No, Zoey, no," Rythian gasped as he sped to her side. "Don't die, Zoey, please don't die..."
Her eyes fluttered open. "Rythian..." she whispered. "Rythian... I'm sorry..."
"Don't go!" Thunder rumbled overhead and rain came streaming down, but Rythian wasn't sure that was the only
'How to...?' - Comics series - First stepsHi there! I decided to write a few tips and concepts to create a comics series. Be prepared, it's a loooooooong text. I hope it's helpful!'How to...?' - Comics series - First steps3 months ago in Personal More Like This
So let's get started!
Creating comics series is not that quick and easy as you may think, there’s some work behind it. It’s not just make some squares in a sheet and then *BAM!* here’s the story. Like other communication types, there’s some conventions in what concerns comics’ creation that you must acknowledge, but nowadays every style is acceptable. Despite that, there are some concepts you have to retain:
- Consistency and accuracy – your characters must look the same in the whole story, I mean, their proportions must be respected. For this you have to draw the characters and document them, as I will explain later;
- And a great capacity for planning – you’ll

How long until the war?
These are the things buzzing around in my mind.
Even though you left me for science, I forgive you.

NEW VIRUS PLEASE PASS ALONGWARNING ABOUT A REALLY NASTY NEW VIRUS.NEW VIRUS PLEASE PASS ALONG4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Meet CryptoLocker. It's your worst nightmare. A lot of antivirus software, including the big names, cannot yet detect or stop it. If your computer gets it, CryptoLocker takes all your files hostage by encrypting them and giving you a certain amount of time to send a certain amount of money to the man behind the virus.
The encryption is very tidy, and so far seems uncrackable (well, crackable, but it might take a couple centuries). If you tamper with the virus itself, it will pretty much self-destruct and take everything with it. And the way the money is transferred, the dick programmer behind it all for the moment is pretty much uncatchable.
YOU CANNOT GET RID OF THIS VIRUS WITHOUT COMPLETELY WIPING YOUR COMPUTER. YOUR ONLY CHANCE IS PREVENTION AND PREPARATION.
Back up your computer to something like an external hard-drive, or even an internal hard-drive that you just take out and stuff away somewhere for safe ke
Kim/Strawfingers Yogscast HeadcanonAs many fans of the Yogscast will know, the recurring antagonist of Sjin's Feed the World series, is his scarecrow Strawfingers, who was apparently brought to life by the area's aura of Thaumcraft magic. He's been known to steal Sjin's Sphax textures, "kidnap" and hold Kim hostage, and randomly photo-bomb the intros and outros of Sjin's videos.Kim/Strawfingers Yogscast Headcanon8 months ago in Personal More Like This
It can also be assumed that Kim was not captured per-say, and may actually be Strawfingers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOeZggRZHjM - Around 8 minutes in, Sjin claims to have had a dream involving Kim being Strawfingers, and Kim mutters something along the lines of "Yeah... Nightmare..."), though how this alter-ego transformation takes place is still unknown, just as much as Sjin still hasn't fully made the connection yet.
This left me wondering how the nether did Kim end up like this, and how did she get to where she is now. This led me to come up with a head-canon for K
