Sorry for my shitty artwork:iconotlplz:Sorry for my shitty artwork9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I feel compelled to apologize for my shitty artwork lately...maybe I'm the only one who thinks this, but I feel like I've been consistently sucking for like, the last 6 or 7 months. Now that I have an actual job doing graphic design (for advertising, but whatever, it's work), I come home at the end of the day creatively bankrupt. I can't get up the energy to draw anything complicated or shade anything as nicely as I used to...sigh. I don't know why I'm complaining. I just am.
Blegh. My muse is a sadistic bitch who abandons me for months or even years at a time.

Thoughts on Korra Season 2Well, now you've done it. ~TheLitanyofRa asked for my thoughts on LoK season 2 terrible idea, hun, because I can't just give a simple opinion on anything...I have to write a friggin novel.

Which brings me to this review. Cue giant Mara expository blab-fest in 5...4...3...2...1....
So. SO. So. I'm not entirely sure what think about this show anymore. Every episode contains such a bizarre mixture of genuine excellence and woeful miscalculation that I'm having a tough time forming a coherent opinion. However, since it's 2 o'clock in the morning and I can't sleep, I might as well go ahead and break things down and see whether my fellow avatards agree with me.
1st up: the characters. WHAT A FREAKIN' MIXED BAG OF AWESOME AND SUCK. Varrick and Zhu Li continue to be effing hilarious and, in my opinion at least, steal practically every scene they're in. The Platypus bear gag had me in stitches....I mean, "Zhu Li, do the thi
Video and Encouragement For animatorshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ron03dpc-5sVideo and Encouragement For animators2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok, please don't think of this vid as something for Codename Kids Next Door Creator. I watched this to see what he had to say about creating the show, but he said some REALLY inspiring things as well.
Here's one for you:
Tom Warburton actually says he wasn't a good artist.
People often think that you need to be amazing at drawing to be an animator. NO YOU DON'T. You have to WANT to do it.
The vid is only about ten minutes long. Take a look at it. It inspired me just as much as Dan and Swampy's work does. These guys here, worked their butts off to get where they are. And all three of them have TV shows that were and are still considered to be the BEST of kids cartoons.
A Religious Rant of Biblical ProportionsSo recently I've been going back and reading some posts of mine from several years ago, and I realized something. I was like a glowing frickin' magical scepter of religious tolerance back then. Not so much anymore My spiritual journey over the last couple of years has not been what I would call a particularly positive one.A Religious Rant of Biblical Proportions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Be warned: This post will probably contain a lot of anger and might offend those of you who are devout, so only read this if you feel like you can handle thoughts that are different from your own. Remember that these are my opinions, my struggles, and my frustration being expressed. I don't want to alienate any of you, but I also want to share what I've been going through. These are my feelings, not necessarily iron-clad facts, so take that as you will. That said, please don't comment with some "God loves you, the Bible says so" shit. I really, really don't appreciate proselytizing.
So. I was raised Christian, but I've always dealt with what my teache

For this little project, you all must draw your fantroll dying to whatever letter/death you assigned yourself with.

New Contest Info! Hello everyone, ~1Foxylady here to announce our newest contest!New Contest Info!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After posting a journal asking you guys
which theme you'd prefer, many of you voted for the following:
Movie crossover: IIIII
Historical setting: I
Time Warp: III
Which means 'Crossover' wins by a total of 5 votes.
However, ~Shirkaou suggested the "Time Warp" theme, in which we would do Zutara in
a Republic City setting. Sort of like AU, but still in the same Avatar Universe. I think this could
be really interesting, which is why I will allow it as a sub-section of the contest.
How this works is that the main contest will be Crossover, however a mini contest will
also be going on withing the same time limit which will be Time Warp.
The contest will start on May 5th - May 31st 2012.
PRIZES WILL BE ADDED SHORTLY, SO PLEASE BE O
Swan Lake updateSwan Lake update5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Something just happened.
This guy living on our house (he's an international student), is a professional writer and works for a company, and he just offered me a deal over a slice of pizza. That's what's kind of funny... how just eating pizza could lead to something like this. Anyway, he saw one of my Dorothy sketches on my desk and we got to talking and he said that he could really help me with this whole comic thing. I showed him some more of my stuff, and even some pages of Swan Lake, and he told me that he wanted to offer me a deal. He wanted to write a story for a comic that he wanted me to illustrate and that he'd try to publish and maybe something that would get me noticed. I, of course, accepted his deal. I don't know what's going to happen to Swan Lake since we're supposedly going to start planning out the storyline for this comic he's got in mind tomorrow, but I think I'm going to have to put Swan Lake on hold.

Halloween storyHello friends! So I wrote a Halloween story a few years ago, and I wanted to know if anyone would like to read it? It's here: http://www.fictionpress.com/s/3151821/1/Maddie-and-the-Ghosts .Halloween story3 months ago in Personal More Like This
What's it about? Well it's a story for kids, about a girl named Maddie (named after my little cousin) who finds a haunted skateboard; it's haunted by a ghost boy named Brandon. They have lots of spooky adventures together that lead up to a big finale on Halloween night. It has ghosts, a witch, a bear, and other fun stuff. It's a romantic supernatural adventure, pretty short, about 50 pages long. I was mostly inspired by the movies Hocus Pocus and Casper, so if you like those movies, or if you're looking for something to get into the Halloween spirit, I just wanted to let you guys know about it. Thank yoU!!

New Username Symbols: The JourneyA New Road to TravelNew Username Symbols: The Journey2 months ago in Personal More Like This
When I was first approached with the project to redesign and replace our user symbols I was naturally quite shocked. For those of us who've been part of deviantART for a long while, changing the username symbols seemed like changing the colour of the sky, or asking everyone to suddenly start walking backwards, right? It seemed like such a fundamental part of what deviantART is that it was hard to take on board. But then really, when you think about it, the old symbols were meaningless at face value. And that, my dear friends, is exactly why we set about looking at rethinking them.
Think about when you first found and joined deviantART. Did any of the symbols make sense? Did you stop and think "what is this ~ before my name and why is it there?" Maybe, but possibly you're probably like me and just kinda accepted it because that's the reality presented to you. After a while, though, you'd have seen the * and maybe even a ` or ^ an

Who married Toph Bei Fong?If you may not know yet, Mike and Bryan are making a spinoff series of Avatar: the last airbender called, The last airbender: Legend of Korra. Well one day when I was reading about it, it says that Toph gets married, but to who? I pondered about this for a while and I ended up just forgetting about for the time being. About a month later I was watching the last episode of season three and I noticed when they're all in the firenation, after the big fight, that The Duke had hugged toph and toph looked surprised. I had never noticed that before and I thought it was super cute! Then I started to think, what if it is The Duke who marries Toph?
