1. You will have to reduce your story to one page. This is called the query letter, what you write when you try and land a legit agent or publisher. You basically say "Hey, this is what my story's about, how long it is, and why I chose you to look at it." It is, in my opinion, one of the most difficult things a writer will ever face. All your nuance, your subtle build-ups, your "yes, buts", and your "no, wait, there's more" all have to be condensed to three paragraphs or so. No query letter is really allowed to be longer than one page, because no one has tl;dr worse than a literary agents or his or her minions. Not only that, queries show off your writing style and what you value in terms of story. A good query gets somebody t
5 Tips On Fantasy ReligionsI'm not looking for a religious discussion. If someone starts one, I will rip your face off and block your comments.5 Tips On Fantasy Religions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. How involved a deity is affects religion. At least in fantasy, anyway. Now of course there are plenty of fantasy religions that don't bother to clear up whether a god actually exists, and the driving elements of the story or more about religion and power rather than spirituality. So considering whether god or gods actually really do exist at all in your story is a perfectly cromulent question. However, if a god does exist, and is constantly involved in the lives and well-being of its worshipers, enemies or non-believers might think twice before some serious smiting ensues. For that matter, followers of an attentive god might watch their mouths. (Look at the Greek Gods and what they did for slights!) A god may be protective, but that doesn't necessarily mean benevolent. In fact, a god or gods may have the att
Hunger Games: An AnalysisI rarely talk about books that I like; most of the time I just bitch about what bugs me in writing that doesn't work. But having just seen The Hunger Games movie, I thought I'd do an analysis of why I like Suzanne Collins's trilogy, and just what makes it awesome for me.Hunger Games: An Analysis4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was partly inspired because I went to the movie with a member of my writing group and her friends, who spent most of the pre-movie time talking about the romance aspect of the books. Meanwhile, the Alamo Drafthouse played highly appropriate clips from Running Man, Battle Royale, and, of all things, dystopian-themed Lazer Tag commercials from the 80s. When I mentioned that Hunger Games had elements of Stephen King's The Long Walk in it, I received a few blank stares, and someone said, "Well, it's impossible not to borrow from other stories, you know." (Thereby completely missing my point.)
I won't talk about the romance aspect of the book, mostly because I don't care. Romance as a ge
Derpy Hooves vs HasbroSo it has come to my attention that recently Hasbro has (possibly?) ordered a cease and desist letter to WeLoveFine.com for selling Derpy Hooves related T-shirts. This, coupled with the mysterious disappearance of the episode "The Last Roundup" (which is the one where Derpy talks) from iTunes has gotten fans freaked out and panicky. The general belief is that Hasbro wants to stop the cannoning of internet named Derpy from the MLP series due to the backlash of people getting angry for them for doing so in the first place. Petitions are going up ( http://www.change.org/petitions/hasbro-studiosthe-hub-do-not-change-derpys-name ) and blogs are being posted and everyone's going nuts over this.Derpy Hooves vs Hasbro4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's my two cents:

Had a Minecraft LAN party with 4 other buddies and some spectators, it was actually amazing.
The goal was to beat the Ender Dragon without cheating, and we got pretty close. All we had left to do was stock up on arrows and ender eyes, but it was getting late, so we just cheated to get those. We were gutted to find that the stronghold was under the ocean, so it gave us a bit of trouble getting in.
When we finally got to the Ender Dragon, I was defeated really quickly and missed most of the fight. ):
That's probably what I get for drinking and having a female spectator next to me. (seriously legit excuses)
The two guys who ended up beating the dragon actually had the least Minecraft experience.

That was totally unexpected!
Personally, I am excited, being a fan of Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre. It's being developed for the DS, not the 3DS though, and it appears to be mostly sprite based so no fancy 3D graphics unfortunately.
Still, is this the first time Pokemon has a crossover with a non-Nintendo franchise?

Point Commissions ~ OPEN!! My commission Process ~Point Commissions ~ OPEN!!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please note me with your info. This makes it easier for me to keep track of things. I will pretty much always accept your commission. If I don't its because I honestly feel like I cant handle what you are asking for. After I accept your request, I'll get started on the sketch.
When I have a sketch done, I will note it to you. If there is anything you are unhappy with,this is your time to tell me. Once the sketch is approved, I want to be paid. After payment, I'll start the lining and coloring.
The progress of your commission will be tracked in the box labeled "Commissions in progress~" located under my favorites on my profile.
To ensure that I get things finished in a fair and orderly manner, I will open up 5 commission slots at a time. Commissions will be closed when the slots are filled and will not be reopened until I am completely done with them all. If you want a commission, but they happe
Farewell DeviantartI've given this a lot of thought and I've decided to leave DA. Both of my biggest comics have gotten their own home now and there's really no reason for me to stick around here any longer. It's also clear that enough people here want me gone anyway, so now is a perfect time to pack my things and move on. I'll be leaving up my gallery for a few days and then slowly phasing it out over the coming weeks.Farewell Deviantart4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Xenoblade and Political CartoonsHey guys, remember when we talked about Xenoblade being released here in North America? Got some bad news... it's ONLY available as a pre-order. Meaning if you plan to come into the store and pick it up at a later date... you're going to have a VERY difficult time doing so. While the word of a GameStop employee is not always accurate (as Gamestop has a habit of lying to their employees) the fact that Xenoblade is only being released via GameStop makes this probably true. Xenoblade is going to be released in North America in April, so that gives very little time to get in and make sure you pre-order the game. Operation Rainfall, the campaign to entice Nintendo to bring these JRPG's to the states has worked as a campaign so far... now we really need to step it up and commit to it and buy the games to prove to Nintendo that we don't want good games to get overlooked here. The last thing we need is another Mega Man Legends 3 fiasco because not enough people stepped it up.Xenoblade and Political Cartoons4 years ago in Personal More Like This

My Two cents on Portfolio ReviewsYou know, I see quite a bit of portfolio on a regular basis, and even more so when I go to comic con and CTN.My Two cents on Portfolio Reviews3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This time around was the same thing, I saw quite a few portfolios. Some good ones and some that miss the mark.
There were a few in particular that caught my eye.. a few extremely good ones, and a few that just didn't work, and I wanted to try and share my opinions about portfolios in general.
This is just my point of view, based on MY experience and definitely not a definitely law, rule, or "must do". Just what I noticed in many student's and young professional's portfolios.
The first thing that strikes me is how similar portfolios can be from one student to another..I can almost always tell when one student is from Art Center, San Jose State, Otis, Sheridan or any other major school. It's a good thing and a bad thing. Mainly a bad thing though
Just a few personal thoughts on portfolios since I just came back from comic con and saw a ton over there.

What Makes a BHM Tick?Many women ask me questions about Big Handsome Men. It seems there is a lot of curiosity among those who find masculine fat attractive.What Makes a BHM Tick?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I composed the following answers some years ago, and I share them here for those who are curious about this topic.
What makes a BHM tick?
If you want to know what makes BHM tick, I'll be glad to help you -- at least with what I know.
We are, as a lot, sometimes pretty insecure about our size. However, any show of affection or appreciation for our bodies is quite welcome. Many BHM have got good self-confidence, good body-image health, but others don't. You need to let a BHM know that you find his size attractive, desirable even.
Discuss the societal pressures on men to be thin and muscular, and how that doesn't jive with reality -- and with your own interests. Point out attractive men of size in the public eye -- TV, movies, politics, wherever. Talk about what makes them special, attractive, even sexy to you.
Does it matter if a BHM was alway
The brilliance of Derpy HoovesAs many of you know in the first season of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" there was an animation mistake resulting in a background character having googly eyes. Internet fans of the show (bronies) latched on to the character and nick-named her Derpy Hooves.The brilliance of Derpy Hooves4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since the show has become such a huge internet phenomenon, Hasbro has responded to the appreciation by acknowledging the strange character and inserting her into strange places throughout the second season.
In "Feeling Pinky" she appears as the reason for a number of huge objects dropped from the sky.
In "Luna Eclipse" she appears dressed in a Halloween costume of made of paper bags.
In the Rainbowdash and Fluttershy duet song in "May the Best Pet Win" she creepily peeks her head out of the chicken coop.
In "Sweet and Elite" she appears inconspicuously dressed in her paper bag outfit hidden among fancy ponies during Rarity's musical number.
Hasbro's decision to accept the show's unique internet fame and fanbase is a really am
Wedding Drag and Pronoun-onsenseThis weekend was a lovely wedding for a good friend of mine (seems like everyone's getting married these days!) and Al suggested I go in drag. I was a little hesitant... not because my friend would care. She's super supportive of that. And not even mostly b/c it would be the first time in a church as myself. Just because I don't know her family and don't want to create a distraction from what is ultimately her day.Wedding Drag and Pronoun-onsense3 years ago in Personal More Like This

New comic - Mass Effect 3: HomeworldsI know; it's not a title that ends with "tion." Shocking, truly!New comic - Mass Effect 3: Homeworlds4 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are like a large portion of the Mass Effect fan base, your favorite character hasn't gotten a comic about them yet. Granted; very few characters have had a comic about them period. But Mass Effect: Homeworlds will be spreading the Dark Horse treatment to more of ME3's characters.
Now, depending on your opinion of the comics thus far, you may be thinking that being given the Dark Horse treatment isn't exactly the best thing. Well, there's not much I can do to assuage you in that regard.
If you've liked the Dark Horse comics so far, then here's a reason to be excited:
Mass Effect: Homeworlds will be a series of --from what I gather-- unconnected issues, with each of the four concentrating on a different member of the main cast in ME3, starting with James Vega.
Mass Effect: Homeworlds will be coming this April.
Yes, that is after Mass Effect 3 is released.
I'm rather excited for this. Back story is something I always

But I see this and immediately my mind starts racing. "How did he find me? Does he not realize it's me? Does he know? If he does, how did he find out?

Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
