The Truth Behind Boku no PicoBefore reading, you should be familiar with Boku no Pico. If you have never heard of it, this will enlighten you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmThJBHvfqcThe Truth Behind Boku no Pico3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I did not write the following. It was written by my friend leal on funnyjunk. I just thought it was hilarious and needed to be shared. Enjoy~
I see that some of you have encountered an anime known as PICO on your dash. Some of you love it. Some of you would rather die than remember watching it. Some of you have no clue what it's about, and are better off for it.
What most of you do not know is the horrifying truth between the lines of this epic trilogy. Yes, I said 'epic' trilogy. Read on.
BOKU NO PICO (A.K.A) MY FINAL SUMMER
This is the first of the trilogy in which a young adult named Tsutomu encounters a beautiful young girl swimming in the town he has come to visit one summer.
The thing is, that was no girl. That was a little boya ten-year-old little boy, at that.

How to determine what you should charge for your work
In light of the absolutely horrendous commission page DA started up which encourages artists to sell their work for literally pennies, let me talk about pricing artwork. Or more specifically, how I price my work.
This...guide? Advice? Thing? Highlights what I've learned about pricing throughout the last few years. I do not touch on the subject of beginner pricing, simply because there are no set guidelines for that and beginner pricing usually ends up being extremely subjective. This guide assumes that the reader is somewhat experienced in their craft and is looking for pointers on pricing. However I still highly encourage beginners to read! This is what pricing should be like, not mere pennies for hours upon hours of work. This also focuses on crafts and sewing but a lot of it is s
RIP Monty OumI know this is a bit late considering his date of passing. I've been so detached from the animation scene that it takes a long time for word to spread to me. In any case, a friend of mine brought to my attention that Monty Oum, famed for his Haloid and Dead Fantasy series passed away on the 1st of February. Aged 33.RIP Monty Oum4 months ago in Personal More Like This
This just..... deeply shocks and saddens me. That such a talented individual would pass at such a young age. Also, I feel his death is a little more personal to me. Believe it or not, around 7 or 8 years ago while I was still going by my Alvin-Earthworm persona, Monty contacted me directly through a PM telling me how my SMBZ series was what inspired him to take up animation. Sadly the PM's have been lost through the annals of time. But my old DeviantArt account was listed in the credits of Haloid. [link]
Granted he was far more talented in the field than I could ever hope to be, I still can't believe my fan series was one of
Demon 311 Encounter RPYou're a train engineer at the Clinchfield Railroad and you're sent to haul a freight train with a GP38-2 on Halloween night. On your trip, you try to cross a bridge over a river, when suddenly, the Demon 311, the ghost of an old 4-8-2 Mountain steam locomotive that fell off this bridge on Halloween night in 1952 appears on the other side of the bridge. The Demon 311 sits there, shining her ghostly red headlight at you and wheeshes ghostly red steam from her cylinders. What do you do?Demon 311 Encounter RP2 years ago in Personal More Like This

YES, IT HAPPENED AGAIN. Postponed until June 11. All I know from the Kiwi thread is that Chris attended this little court date alone (no Barb), and that he was apparently very nervous about the whole ordeal. As he should be.
I don't get it. I just don't get it. There exists real, unquestionable video footage of him firing pepper spray at a Gamestop employee. He has a history of rather unusual and volatile behavior. Has no one in the Virginia court system run a friggin' background check on him yet? This should not be that hard to do! Then again, what the hell do I know about our legal system? Well, I know that shooting someone with Mace is pretty much asking for an assault sentence, so...fuck it, there's nothing I can do except throw up my hands and ask WHY?!
Okay, rant over. I just want Chris to have to actually answer for his actions for once in his life, and the fact that his sentencing keeps getting postponed or waived for just a few
I Just Can't Bring Myself to Hate DudleyAlthough at this point in time it honestly doesn't matter; there seems to be a trend amongst some fans who despise Dudley and want to wretch Kitty away from him to spare her from his "abuse."I Just Can't Bring Myself to Hate Dudley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Abuse? I never once thought Dudley hated Kitty. I believe this stems from people getting tired of Kitty getting the short end of the stick when it comes to getting the brunt of physical comedy and her not saving the day in the end.
Which is bringing some people to believe she should get her own spin off series. A fan made series I can see. An actual syndicated spin off series; that's a bit of a stretch.
While I agree the physical humor isn't funny and Kitty isn't written as well; I honestly can't bring myself to see how Dudley could abuse her intentionally nor could I see myself actually hating him. I mean sure he can be loud and childish...but that's because he's a dog. Many dogs naturally act this way. Yes this is a town of anthropomorphic furry animals...but they still maintain animal character
The Flynn Drinking GameI've been too serious in my ramblings lately, and I think it's time for some levity. That said, I think it's time to try and create a drinking game more fatal then the Stephen King one. I'd advise you not to play this unless you can hold your drink. Otherwise, you'll either get completely wasted, or you'll die of alcohol poisoning.The Flynn Drinking Game3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Take a shot for:
Characters acting OOC.
Double this for Sonic acting like a prick.
Double this for Tails being an idiot.
Double this for something that only an adult would get.
A pointless cameo.
An old character that new readers won't recognise and old readers won't care about showing up.
Mixing up Robotnik Prime and Eggman.
A Robotnik Prime doppelganger that does not look like Robotnik Prime.
Chaos Emeralds being used as a cure all for everything.
Foreshadowing that is so vague that it fails to set up the twist, and the twist looks like shock value.
Characters acting like morons to facilitate the plot, particularly Sonic and Sally.

Why I turned against Bronies.I used to consider myself a brony, but I realized how... ignorant they are. Don't get me wrong, I love the show and I do have a favorite (It ain't Fluttershy, bronies). Before you say I am judging bronies, I spent almost a year very active in the fandom, and decided I didn't like it. I am only stating my opinion, and yes I know that I am only one person out of millions and my opinion doesn't matter, but still, you guys need a reality check. Before you jump down my throat, here's my reasons.Why I turned against Bronies.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
*Most bronies are conceited.*

How annoying is that? They act like they are so high above all the other fandoms. They think they are the best fandom, claiming to "never fight, never get angry, love and tolerate." That could not be further from the truth. The fandom that really never fights is the Sims 3 fandom. I have never seen a fight be

Artistic Limitations?Thankyou to all those who shared their stories and opinions on my last journal, I haven't gotten around to replying to everyone but I have read every comment.Artistic Limitations?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Another topic I want to discuss? A bit of a dead-horse? but then again I haven't really had a chance to talk much about this issue and I would like to hear other peoples opinions and whether or not they agree or disagree.
Overtime I have noticed an attitude regarding artwork and peoples means of determining how talented and skilled an artists is. By this I mean people have an attitude that if an artwork doesn't feature correct anatomy or the artists doesn't practise realism then they are a novice and are limiting themselves artistically. I have lost count on how many comments I have gotten along the lines of " your art is good, but I think its time to move on to more professional stuff, start doing some still life, portraits and landscapes". Obviously I encourage going out of your comfort zone and drawing stuff you wouldn't usual

CEA Blog: How to Report an Underage DeviantHiya deviants!CEA Blog: How to Report an Underage Deviant4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's always pretty unfortunate when we find a talented young artist here on dA when they are just too young to hold an account with us. Today I would like to talk about what to do when you stumble across a deviant that is under the age of 13 years old.
So what do we consider to be "underage" and what does dA do about it?
dA complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, meaning we prohibit any child under the age of 13 from opening and using a dA account. Even with parental permissions this restriction must stay in place.
When an underage kiddo is brought to our attention their account will be closed automatically. COPPA closed accounts are kept as they are until their owner reaches our minimum required age. Upon verification of their age their account can be restored to active status and all its contents will still be there.
For more information on what COPPA is please go here: COPPA.org.
