There is something about typography that is just awesome. The combination, use and placement of words/language is something we see in everyday design and should be appreciated as an art form. So to spread the love of Typography, here are some amazing typographic pieces you should all check out:

Hey let's make a collection of Naruto characters plz-icons and stamps! As there are so many plz-icons and stamps out there we'll need your help in making this collection thrive! Post your icons in the comments and we'll add them as well!
If you're wondering, here is how you can actually use plz-icons and stamps.
They can be used in comments, journal entries and in your dA-ID. To use a specific icon, take a look at what the name of the icon is, and then do the following.
-copy the name of the icon, for example, narutoplz
-enter the name along with ':icon' in front of it and end it with ':' (it should look like this :iconnarutoplz:)
-if you're uncertain whether or not you've got the right icon (or if it's actually going to work), click 'preview' next to the 'submit' button

Animation ApologiesIn my last journal about animation techniques a number of well meaning but vocal people took issue with what I had to say about the marriage of 2-d and 3-d animation. My original point was that 3-D elements made to look 2-D is a shorthand for drawing them by hand and that I personally missed the skill involved of having a 2-D animator actually drawing those objects frame by frame. I felt that more personality and life in the animation was a result actual artist drawing the elements and cited the "masking effect" (explained in Scott McCloud's book "Understanding Comics") as my reason for liking it.Animation Apologies4 years ago in Personal More Like This
But instead my point was mischaracterized as if I was saying I hated ALL 3-D animation period (which of course is not true) or that I don't want to advance 2-D animation with new technology (which also is not true). Disliking how a door would now be animated in 3-D instead of being drawn by hand somehow equated to me trying to blanket label all 3-D character animation as "cheap."

Hello guys! Kita-Angel here again with even more stuff! Today I will be taking the time to make an article about story writing, really the key points, what they are, how you can improve on them and what a story really is, like what brings it all together.
There is going to be a LOT of key stuff here, and it is going to sound like English class in high school all over again. Hooray! But this is valuable stuff, so pay attention. It is definitely worth it!
This guide was written with the intention to help those who lack any experience at all with story writing to know what is required to make a story. After this we can maybe start looking into how to improve what you have worked on!
What Makes a Story
So, what is it that makes a story? Where do people get these amazing ideas for amazing stories? How do we take the idea and make all the components needed?

I have a treat for you all today; I need cameos of YOUR Sonic fancharacters for a very special GOTF story I'm working on! It's a gift for you all, so what better way to make it special besides letting my readers play a role?
If you'd like a chance to see your characters in the comic, all you need to do is post a comment on this journal with a link to an image of your character.
There are some do's and don'ts though, because of the nature of the comic/scene:
-Give me characters with winter outfits! This is a Christmas-themed story. If your character dosen't have one that's okay, I'll probably modify their existing costume.
-Couples, teams, and families are great!
-Humans are GREAT, and so are Anthros or humans with tails/animal ears. If you have a photo of yourself, that's a valid entry. I might draw a likeness of you into the comic! (I still want Sonic OCs though, of course)
-Color images are preferable!
-No mythical creatures
-No main character l

Hey guys, Kita-Angel here!
 If you would like to +fav this article, or bookmark it, click here for the NEWS ARTICLE! where you can directly +fav it, or just bookmark this page!
In this article, I actually had to do a LOT of research. I wanted to make sure that I covered a lot of different topics and not just things to make the characters LOOK different. I mean, they can look different but you also need to work on other details too, such as background, personality, goals/dreams, family, general bio...
I think I will split this into two parts, and since I have no time to make a proper tutorial, this will be part 1, an article full of usefull information i have thought of as a basis for character creation. From there, you can really elaborate the plan and guide yourself and work on other things to make this more detailed and personalized.
I will also do a second part much
