1. If any of the stuff your villain pulls is on the Evil Overlord list, you need to rethink your strategy. Yep, this one: http://www.eviloverlord.com/lists/overlord.html I encounter far, far too many stories where the villain and the hero work in an idiotic tandem, a kind of moron tango that even the average Webelo scout could probably think his way out of. One of my biggest sticklers is story logic, and I have a tendency to hound anyone relentlessly if theyre insisting on their characters doing stupid things for the sake of the story. (Mostly because its insulting to the reader, i.e., me, and the reader owes nothing.) Villains appear to be the worst offenders of this, acting like puppets whose strings are plucked

Trauma. A word about the Colorado shooting.Artist Roland Barthes once said "Trauma is a news photo without a caption." He's wrong, of course. After the events of July 20th in Aurora, Colorado we've been bombarded with an endless torrent of news photos, broadcasts, blogs, and opinion pieces about the actions of James Holmes, their impact, and its significance in the debate of violence in pop-culture. We've got plenty of photos, plenty of captions, and the trauma is very, very real.Trauma. A word about the Colorado shooting.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You see, I have a unique insight into comics and violence. As a comics creator I have written war stories, violent stories, and I've even had an opportunity to play in the streets of Gotham City. But unlike my fellow writers and artists, at age nineteen I nearly died when a lone nut with a gun put a bullet into me.
For more details regarding the incident you can read this article published in Riverside's Press-Enterprise newspaper http://fav.me/d58o9ud . But all you really need to know is on a summer day in 1993 a man I'd never met believed he had the

Leela and Amy took off to Amazonia on the Planet Express Ship. They both left some important items there from the last trip there and are going to get. Leela and Amy have been getting into fights lately and weren’t speaking to each other for the entire ride there.
“We have arrived at Planet Amazon,” said Leela. “Shut up!” replied Amy. “What, I just said that we have arrived at our destination,” Leela stated. Amy replied, “Oh, sorry.” The ship landed in an open field. The bay door hatch opened and Leela and Amy stepped out. They began to walk into the forest. “Where did you leave your shit?” Amy asked. “My shit!” Leela yelled. “We both left some things here and we are going to get them!

His name is Gavin Dunne. Irish born musician who goes by the moniker, Miracle of Sound.
For those of you who don't know, Gavin has been a musician for several years. But over the last couple of years has gained notoriety for his video game themed songs. From Mass Effect to Skyrim and even songs inspired by shows like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.
Gavin has crossed styles from dubstep to metal and always delivers. With five albums under his belt and over a hundred songs he is constantly pumping out music for those to enjoy and listen to and now he shares a bit of himself with us.
So...here we go!

messy punishment wedgieJacqueline gulps as she spots her mother waiting for her out front of the house.messy punishment wedgie11 months ago in Personal More Like This
'Its fine' she thinks 'there's no way she knows...'
Her mother glares at her as she walks inside.
"Jacqueline Price! I heard you're dating that scoundrel Peter Macles. I warned you about him!! He has three other girlfriends as well! You know what he wants to do with you?"
She grabs her arm and drags her into the kitchen, opening the fridge and taking out a can. She quickly pantses Jacqueline and pulls her thong to the side.
"This is what he wants!"
She presses the nozzle into her pussy and squirts a large amount of whipped cream from the can up inside Jacqueline's pussy and she squeals from the sudden coldness deep in her.
"Or maybe he wants this!!"
Her mom presses it up her ass too, spraying cold cream into her butt and she squirms in discomfort. Her mother then grabs her thong and yanks nice and high, making sure the cream stays in and against her crotch, the sticky sugary stuff already s

How to get better at artPeople keep asking me what programs i use, and what program is the best for drawing and what brushes i used for this artwork or that. Those are legitimate questions, sure, but not entirely accurate. There are differences between programs and brushes, but in the end, they are all tools. They are tools artists use to put their imagination onto a canvas. Just like a traditional artist can use 10 different brushes to paint an artwork, or just one single brush, digital art is the same in that regard. There is no one brush that can achieve an effect that none other can. Sure it's a little more difficult if you're using one brush type to draw everything, but not impossible. Artists might have hundreds of brushes in Photoshop but in truth, we use 2-5 brushes the most and those hundreds only in special cases. I personally use a hard brush and a soft brush for 90% of things, what i do change is the opacity and turn the pressure on and off, change the size etc.How to get better at art11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Laying a wash
A wash is a large area in a watercolor painting where the paint flow and diffusion have been manipulated to efface individual brushstrokes. Within wash areas, color transitions are usually gradual and span analogous hues. Laying a wash is one of the most satisfying tasks in watercolor painting. Essentials of this s
the chase..Jacqueline was running as fast as she could, but the boys were chasing her down and catching up. She knew what they wanted too. Ever since her underwear had accidentally caught on a doorknob at school and given her a wedgie and she'd turned red and moaned out loud in front of everybody body, people wouldn't stop trying to give her wedgies. She couldn't help how much she enjoyed them, the rubbing, the pressure, it felt so good against her when the panties were being pulled. But recently things had got even more... Interesting. People had started becoming creative with the wedgies. Doing different things, adding things into wedgies, even hanging her up by her underwear to see how long she could stay up for before her underwear snapped and she was sent to the floor, clutching at her crotch, a moan still on her lips. By far the most embarrassing one yet had been yesterday. Just after the bell to end school had rung, Jacqueline had been walking out of school, when the same three boys as werthe chase..3 months ago in Personal More Like This

50 Things I Miss About Fallout 3I miss Fallout 3. I miss everything about it. But here are fifty of the things I miss the most....50 Things I Miss About Fallout 33 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1. I miss the day I found a party hat.
2. I miss the time I held said party hat out to Charon and whispered "put it on" and I will never forget that he shot me in the face "by accident" in our very next fight.
"When you die, I'm setting fire to your corpse and pissing on the ashes."
3. I miss hoarding shit into our house and categorizing everything based on type.
4. I miss very carefully setting up a well-stocked bar on the book shelf, only to have the last shot glass suddenly fly out of control, knocking my 15 minutes of work to the floor.
5. I miss punching Desmond in the dick in Point Lookout and seeing how long he'd chase me before he forgave me.
6. I miss trying for over an hour to get on top of the Ferris wheel, and how much I cried when I just couldn't do it.
7. I miss Underworld and getting mah hair did by a junkie ghoul wearing silk pyjamas.

I also remember another time when I did ask for a trade
in her profile around the same period of time
And I got a streight forward
I can't I'm too busy
Then I asked why she had the status set on "ask" instead of "closed"
and she simply said that they were like that just in case a super
talented awesome artist would pass that wants a trade.
So I was just called untalented and unimportant?!
well at least she was honest..

Lucianna, who manages the GRAPHIC DREAMS group within the SecondLife art community's popular www.koinup.com virtual art website, spent a great deal of effort to fully review all of my artwork portfolio - including many of my latest 3D artworks.
After reading the review, I am so very humbled at the extremely kind review and compliments expressed in the review. To even be stylistically compared to the works of El Greco, Van Gogh, Chagal, and Dahi is truly humbling and appreciated.
I want to thank Lucianna and Mondi Virtuali site for the surprising and detailed artistic review of his art.
