Miranda: Please, just call me Miranda.
Prosecutor: Miranda...You taught your children to tell someone and react unkindly toward a homosexual or anyone producing a homosexual act, correct?
Miranda: Hasn't everyone else?
Prosecutor: We're talking about you.
Judge: Answer the question, Mrs. Butler.
Miranda: Yes. We did...But it's only because I want my children to grow up like everybody else! I don't want my kids being picked on for being the black sheep. It's like being the only nigger in the whole school!
Miranda: It's true, sweetie.
Dale: That's different! This is my sexual orientation we're talking about, and don't drag Morton into this!
Judge: Mr. Butler.
Miranda: Morton is african-american and he was caught selling crack!
Dale: He was selling crack so he could pay his way through college, you bitch!
Judge: One more word and I'm holding whomever speaks in contempt!
Miranda: Shut up, you faggot! You've put our family through enough!

POCKY DAY FEATURESGreetings all friends, watchers, and random passer-bys!POCKY DAY FEATURES2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Today on November 11th (11/11), there is a little random event going on in Japan in which we call it "Pocky's Day".
Q: What's a Pocky's Day?
The company that produces the snack Pocky has set 11/11 as "Pocky's Day" just to celebrate with randomness.
Conspiracy of snack companies, I know lol
You can check out their website, and see how much derp they have done so far!
I'm just joining the bandwagon to celebrate this random event for fun and have some excuses to eat pockys lol
As I have posted on my poll few days ago, I'm going to keep my words and hold "POCKY DAY FEATURES"
Anyone is welcome to join - all you gotta do is submit a deviation that's related to Pocky, and give me the link to it (you can just leave it as a comment on this journal or note me.). Then I'll be more than happy to feature it for you on my journal!
A bit of personal lifeFirst of all, I'd like to thank all of you for your kind reactions on my last journal. I didn't really feel like replying to everyone in person. But I do want to let you know I really appreciate the support I got from you, and I've read every single message.A bit of personal life1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When I first wrote that journal, I was in doubt whether to post it or not. Because, even though many artists experience it at least once in their career, having an artblock seems to be kind of a taboo in the art world. It's like admitting failure. Nobody ever likes to do that. I don't like it either. But keeping this kind of thing a secret, felt a bit dishonest to me. I thought to myself; "Would I dislike an artist I admire just because he/she had an artblock?" and the answer was "no". I would probably appreciate it if a public person admitted something like that, because it would make them seem a lot more human.

Who has your key?
The key to your heart
I looked away &&&
When I didn't respond,
You asked me
Can I have the key?
But when I still was quiet,
And wouldn't look at you,
Please.. I really want to have it..
The truth is, I no longer hold the key.
I've trusted so many people with it,
I don't have it. Don't know where it went.
I've given it to so many people who have
Unlocked my heart
Just to hurt me. I don't have a key to give you.
But.. If I did, could I trust you,
To hold it safe?
Close to your heart,
Where no harm could come of it?
Could I trust you,
Not to walk away once I've let you in?
Once you've seen what I am?
I'm sorry. I can't....
Common Digital Painting Mistakes FAQHi everyone! I'm so happy so many of you enjoyed my tutorial!Common Digital Painting Mistakes FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you for all your +favs and comments -- it's been awesome . A lot people have been asking similar questions which weren't answered in the original tutorial. Here's some FAQ that will hopefully clear things up:
1. How do you do this in Paint Tool SAI?
Unfortunately, I don't have Paint Tool SAI so I don't have an exact answer for this. However, I've heard that it's similar so you should be able to translate most of the Photoshop tips into SAI. Also, most of the tips are conceptual and function in traditional work as well as digital, so the program you are using shouldn't hinder you too much in applying them.
2. What size should I make my canvas?
This has been a really common question and the answer is that it depends on the complexity of the work and the amount of detail you are trying to achieve. I make my canvases in the thousands of pixels at least. A rule of thumb that I use is

She is amazing to me
When She talks to me, I feel that I am alive.
Her voice is like the sweetest thing I ever heard.
Her attitude is to never buy a cage for a bird.

I had to let her know that I feel the same,
I'm a bit new to this so I don't know the rules to play the game.

Policy StatementThis is ridiculous to me, but I guess to be 100% fair to all who visit this page, I ought to post this statement up front:Policy Statement3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have made it clear from the outset that I am simply not interested in arguing with people with opposing views over the internet. To disregard that request is, in my view, trollish behavior. "Discussion" is a waste of my time. Every minute I spend "arguing" with someone (who has not arguments, but rather, beliefs) is a minute spent away from poastering, sending emails, making phone calls, trying to raise a little money, and other useful things to advance Occupy/Anon/anti-SOPA, and other progressive movements.
If someone wants to discuss on this page how to advance the goals of Occupy, Anon, anti-SOPA, pro-women, 'green,' etc., or, how to make these poasters more effective (including suggestions and requests), they will be welcomed and their comments will receive a courteous reply.

What sickens me the most is how people are actually joking about her suicide, as well as people I know. It leaves me speechless, I feel like my entire circle has been divided because of it.
I feel like there is a massive lack of empathy in people today and honestly its a bit frightening......But this group, and all of you guys who come here give me hope that maybe one day it won't be as bad as it is right now.

Here are the steps of my new painting "The Chase"
The first step is a black and white sketch, very rough, just to establish the composition. I often try to place main objects in a scene following the rule of 3ds, this gives balance and harmony to the picture.
Next step is refining the shape and form. I made the ship on the left more white, to show that he is away from the ship in front. It is the rule of the air perspective. I also refined the sky.
I dodged the ship behind a bit more, like he's in the thin haze. Then i started to detail the sea. I wanted the light to come through the waves to give the water that wonderfull inner glowing. I studied reference photos of the wawes to understand the physics of the sea water. Notice how i painted reflections of the ship on the left side.
When i finished the main forms i bega

This is what this contest is about: Fan Fic writers are invited to tell us what swapping bodies with a character from any fandom of their choice would be like.
Write a short Fan Fiction about your body swap experience with a character in a fandom of your choice.
You must put YOURSELF in their body, and the fandom character in your body. We want to see both characters facing this freaky incident.
You now posses their body and all their powers, but there are limitations. Please refrain from writing anything of sexual nature.
The character now posses your body and has to face reality! So they no longer have their special powers and no one but themselves know about the swap. For example: They would break their hand trying to get coins to pop out of bricks! Or even a co

how to self harmBefore you self harm in any way, you should probably know what you're getting into.Before you make that cut, please keep in mind that you will find the pain release and blood strangely addictive. You may think to yourself that you'll be able to control it, that you won't let it get out of hand. You may think that you can just stick to a few small, shallow cuts here and there that won't be deep and that will heal quickly and easily.But you're wrong.You can't control it, it's impossible to control. It controls you. It's an addiction.The cuts will get deeper, they'll scar. They'll take weeks to months to heal and years for the scars to actually begin to fade. You'll find that soon, you depend on it. You can't go more than a few days without cutting. You'll go crazy as your skin itches and burns, your hands shake, your head pounds, your vision goes blurry as you try to keep your mind off of it, try to hold back from giving in. But you will.

Watch this advertisement against same-sex marriage in Washington State.
I have no words.
Okay, actually, I do have some words about the ad.
Same-sex marriage (aka MARRIAGE) is the topic here, in response to an advertisement by the folks against R-74 that was shared by a relative of mine. . The ad was full of just so much… so much bull. I had to write a 4 page long answer to it.
-"Marriage is rooted in biological facts of nature." By that argument, so is polygamy, cannibalism, and murder.
-Sexual behaviour is not the same thing as sexual orientation. A study by the New York City Dept of Health and Mental Hygiene reported in 2006 that: "Of the straight-identified men, 9.4% reported having sexual intercourse with at least 1 man (and no women) in the year before the survey." They also reported, "Approximately 70% of straight-identified men who have sex with men reported being married."

Historical Disney Princesses FAQRather than answering these individually over and over again, I'm just going to leave this here and add to it as needed:Historical Disney Princesses FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
- I'm not telling you which princess I'm doing next.
- I would appreciate it if you didn't tell me what character I should do next, or what you're looking forward to, or what character you hope I'll do! It's very sweet and I definitely appreciate the sentiment, but consider the fact that you're something like the 400th person to tell me about Elsa, or Anna, or Merida- it's not adding a lot to the conversation.
- No, I'm not doing any Kingdom Hearts characters. There's no particular historical precedent, so they don't really have anything to gain from this series.
Are you going to do Merida?
YES PLEASE STOP ASKING sobsobsob
Are you going to do Elsa and Anna?
Are you going to do any more pieces in this series?
Yes! Let it be assumed that I will continue doing these until stated otherwise.
