Creative Criticism vs BashingAs a photographer, artist, writer or any other creative field, you are always trying to improve at what you do. We always seek out the advice of others to know what they think of our work and therefore knowing whether it's good or if it needs improvement. I'm going to let you guys know a little of how I got to the point where I'm at now. I have always delved into many different fields in the path of discovering what I wanted to do in life. In the path of discovery I first started off as a writer. I depended on the constructive criticism of my teachers to tell me whether my writing was good or if it needed improvement. My teachers always seemed to love my work and would always tell me that I could be a great writer if I stuck with it. In the end, I didn't stick with it. I dabbled with art for a while and always received praise from my fellow classmates for the pictures I drew, and I even sold the drawings I made in class for 25 cents each.. Lol But anyways, somewhere downCreative Criticism vs Bashing9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Unstable Cannibal Zombie Bunny NunsI recently learned that the stereotypical "Japanese Fan Girl" is not some sort of mythical sasquatch of popular culture. I know they exist because my work somehow attracted the attention of one.Unstable Cannibal Zombie Bunny Nuns3 years ago in Personal More Like This
She showed up online one day and started posting weird fan-art and (thanks to google translate) weirder messages.
It was amusing, if a little creepy. Especially when someone found a few pictures she had drawn of a decidedly underage version of myself being violated by tentacles.
I let that slide because, hey; she was a Japanese Fan-girl. They're innately odd.
But then it turned out she was actively following me around the internet, frequenting the same sites and forums as me. Specifically B3TA; a place where you really shouldn't go unless you speak English, have a tough skin and an understanding of serrated British humour.
Fan-girl did not, and was subsequently torn to shreds.
Despite everyone's advice, however (including mine and most of the B3TAns) she kept going back. As such, I don't have m
World Building Tips(somewhat Nuzlocke Specific)World Building Tips5 months ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of people have asked me about how I world-build and I get a lot of comments about it so I guess... I do pretty well???
So I'm going to attempt to explain my thought-process and process for world-building:
World-building basically comes down to doing your homework.
No seriously- make and fill in a worksheet for yourself (I’ll be posting mine for you guys to use if you want to).
Think it through- all aspects of it. And when you answer your questions, consider the theme of your nuzlocke. Your world and plot should follow the same theme and I think that's how you make it interesting?? Like, don't try to be edgy and interesting- just connect the dots in realistic ways.
In the case of The Fall, it has a pretty distinct dark undertone- so all of my answers had to reflect that, on the surface, things might look okay, but this is canonically a world where there’s one visible police officer/government official who is completely useless and it’

Diancie is the "cute" legendary (same league as Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy...oh you got the idea already) and it's Fairy/Rock type.

Recently the english names of those mons were revealed via that application on XY to make trades: Diancie, Volcanion and Hoopa.
In another words: there's 3 event legendaries yet to be revealed!
Event legendaries are those you cannot catch in normal gameplay without aid of an event item or download. Those legendarie

Talonflame is revealed to be the final form of Fletchling and so there's the mid evo, Fletchinder. It's where it becomes fire/flying.
Floette is Flabebé's mid evo (the final evo it becames part of the flower itself) and it's still pure fairy type. What's funny it's it only grew 0.1cm from evolution lol!

"I wish I could improve with art"
"How do you do this"
Before I start my rant- I'd like to say I am in no means a good artist (by my own ridiculously high standards. Haaa I have no self esteem. Oops.) , but I have improved since I was first here on DeviantArt and Youtube and all of that.
I see so many people complain about their art, and wanting to improve and get better- or say they'll NEVER be as good as someone else. But see now...the thing is with a lot of these people- and this journal is in fact intended at you if you do this- all they draw is just cats. Or just dogs. Or just -one specific thing-
Or they'll just do one style.
Whatever the case is- all they do is the same thing. Over and over.
And they want to improve.
Now, here's the thing. The chances of you actually improving with drawing and animation or just art in general- are extremely slim if all you do is one thing. If yo

Adventures at A-konA-kon RecapAdventures at A-kon3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hi internetland! Needless to say I had a blast at A-kon this year, thought I'd blurb a bit about the trip. This was the very first year I wasn't a hotel room bum, slaving away the entire con in front of a sewing machine. In fact Monoyasha and Draga03 wouldn't have let me even if I had tried to pull that stunt again |D Thus sadly I didn't get my brother ReyTiger's Ezreal costume done that weekend. However despite not keeping myself occupied with costumes, I managed to find even less time for all the activities I wanted to do at the con and I ended up having my busiest year ever. I didn't even get a good chance to walk around the Artist Alley or Dealer's Rooms, which sucks but probably a good thing since I'm broke anyhow.
We hit the road at 2am and drove all day Thrusday... and then stood in the badge pickup line for almost 3 hours. I'm seriously considering buying at the door to avoid the line- particularly so I don't miss out on the spirit walk, which is a mi

The whiteness of the clouds left behind by a plane
Draw a line across the blue sky
Always, no matter to where, always continuing
As if it knew tomorrow
In my chest I breathed in a shallow breath
I remember the breeze that blew on my hot cheek
The hands and feet which are bound before the future
Are freed by a quiet voice
So nostalgic that I want to scream out, is
One life, the midsummer light
At your shoulder, swaying, the sunbeams streaming through the leaves
The white ball at rest
The petals which have been scattered by the wind
The invisible river which carries both
Singing while flowing on
Secrets and lies and joy
Are the children of the gods who created this universe
The heart which is bound before the future
Someday, will remember its name
So loved that I want to scream out, is
One life, the place to r

How to get more exposure for your art.I was recently asked for some advice on getting exposure as an artist. Here's my own advice with personal reasons as to why I suggest them. This is not a post for 'bragging', if you take it that way, then please stop reading *i mean this in the nicest way orz* This is stating facts from my experience. What worked for me and what doesn't work. It shows how my own art has gained exposure throughout the years and how yours can too. I am not a fantastic artist, I know what I'm good at and what I struggle with. I work hard for what I know I can push out and I do it proudly. I hope this post will help you earn more followers and give you a bit of inspiration as well.How to get more exposure for your art.1 year ago in Personal More Like This

I like to try to be a role model to you guys. I want to be someone who inspires other people. When people look at my art, and the things I do, I want them to feel happy or encouraged. Lately, I can't even complete some of the things I've wanted to do for years. When I was little, I made it a personal goal of mine to get straight A's in high school, so I could get scholarships. My grades started dropping in the 4th grade, due to stress. From around that time until middle school, not only did my grades gradually decrease but so did things like my happiness, my will to do things, ect. I've already made a sort of confession post here on deviantART and on tumblr about my life previously (explaining my stress as a child, abuse, and an alcoholic father) but I believe I deleted them. Either way, here's the story.
