Homophobic Trolls.Recently I just had a new deviation removed by the staff due to "pornographic content." I am well aware that pornographic content as judged so by the good staff here at deviantArt can be removed and there isn't much I can do about it. However, it is the piece that was removed that bothers me more than anything. As you well know pretty much half of my gallery consists of lemons, and I've never once received any complaints or violations, until that is after I uploaded my "Female!South Italy x Female!Reader" fic, which was removed about two or three days after I uploaded it.Homophobic Trolls.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Uhm...OK, but why the hell didn't you report the rest of my deviations then? Only reporting that ONE deviation shows me that you aren't interested in enforcing deviantArt's policies, but rather that you are just a homophobic asshole. It's not like I didn't put the proper warnings on the fic, because I did. I even included that it contains ideologically sensitive materiel because I KNOW not everyone supports or necessa
Tips for Beginning a StorySoooo, I should try to update my journal more often. I typically don't have much to say and prefer not to talk about my personal life. (It's really boring anyhow.) So why not use it to start sharing some highlights from my vast collection of writing resources?Tips for Beginning a Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To begin, let's start with beginnings. Here's an article from one of the better sites giving advice on the internet. It's called "The 3 Integral Components of a Story's Beginning."
Here are some highlights:
Barnes and Noble editorial director Liz Scheier offers an anecdote that sums up the necessity of these three elements. Scheier writes:
A professor of mine once posed it to me this way, thumping the podium for emphasis: "It's not 'World War II began'! It's 'Hitler. Invaded. Poland.'"
The professor's example immediately gives us a human being (albeit a rather unsavory one) in whom we can invest our interest. Stories are about people. No people, no stories.

PETAHey, I've just heard some great news recently.PETA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm assuming you all remember PETA's attack on the Pokemon and Mario Franchise:
"When on a mission to rescue the princess, Mario has been known to use any means necessary to defeat his enemy—even wearing the skin of a raccoon dog to give him special powers. Tanooki may be just a "suit" in Mario games, but in real life, tanuki are raccoon dogs who are skinned alive for their fur. By wearing Tanooki, Mario is sending the message that it's OK to wear fur." - PETA on Mario
"Pokémon are treated as unfeeling objects and used for such things as human entertainment and as subjects in experiments. The way that Pokémon are stuffed into pokéballs is similar to how circuses chain elephants inside railroad cars and let them out only to perform confusing and often painful tricks that were taught using sharp steel-tipped bullhooks and electric shock prods." PETA on Pokemon
Then followed it up with the parody game "Pokemon Black and Blue": http://features

Hi, everyone. First of all I´d like to say sorry for leaving so abruptly. You deserve to know that the reason why I deactivated my account and ignored every other messages and texts, purposely was to restrict ("ground") myself from acting impulsively upon things and stop being anxious and breaking down (I´m more shatterable than you might know...). It also was because I wanted to set a change in things, something I´ve tried to do for almost a whole year, but it always failed… And you know, even though «fleeing» might have seemed wrong, I realize that this really DID make a change in me and others. Therefore, I don´t

As promised I'm going to be uploading pictures of the possible things to win for my upcoming contest this week. I'm considering doing one contest and then one random giveaway for the people that aren't too keen on the idea of the contest. The prizes consist of some newer and older comics, an original print I purchased from a con a while ago (it's beautiful but I have nowhere to put it as of now; still in sleeve), a possible Harley Quinn print I got from my last con (signed by artist), and something I'll be making myself such as a sketch or plushie. I'm not sure if I'll be doing ranks such as 1st, 2nd, 3rd or if I'll be doing the set as one large prize package. If this goes well I may end up doing one every few months. Let me know what you all think and which of you plan on entering either!
I'll be leaving soon to go to FL, as most of my older watchers know by now, and when I get back (after the second week of July) the pieces will be judged and

Normally I wouldn't make a Journal for something so small and insignificant as this, but really, this is something I haven't done in a very long time! I simply can't even remember the last time...
I have done nothing productive all day.
Truly, this has been my laziest day in many months-- perhaps in over a YEAR.
I slept in till 2:00 in the afternoon, called up my buddy Matt, we got coffee, played Mario Kart 8, and watched "Top 10" videos on WatchMojo for five hours straight.
That's it. No drawing, no work, and the mess we made in the living room is still there. Today was spectacularly useless. I needed this day.
I'm sure lots of you guys have similar stories of exceptional laziness to share!

STOP! RAFFLE TIME!RAFFLE TIMESTOP! RAFFLE TIME!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It has occurred to me that I have never done a raffle before. And I kinda wanna do one. This raffle is going to be very small and very simple. That's just how it's gonna work. There's not much you have to do, but there are some pretty easy rules to follow.
You must be watching me. Whether a new watcher or an old watcher, I don't care. No tears.
You must favorite this journal. I don't care if you unfav it after the raffle is over. But you have to fav it the first time.
You must have at least three deviations in your gallery. I'm not giving them to you just because. I want you to deserve them.
You must favorite this journal by Sept. 19th, 2013 or you will not be included in the raffle.
Now that we have the rules established, let's move onto the raffle prizes. They are very small, as I stated earlier. (Maybe I'll do a bigger one another time.)
I got hackedHi this is lifeloser. The last couple of weeks have been truly chaotic time of my life.I got hacked6 months ago in Personal More Like This
All my online accounts with major websites like Tumblr got hacked and vanished from the sites.
At first I was dumbfounded by the whole ordeal and then I panicked and got mad.
However I soon realized that being swept up in anger would not get me anywhere, so I tried all I can to fix the situation.
Firstly I got help from my aunt who's proficient in English and requested for an explanation and recovery of my account to Tumblr.
However all I got from them was that the recovery is not possible. I was in despair once again. I received the same disappointing
responses from the other websites as well.
Then Deviantart sent me a reply saying that if I insert my password within 30 days, my account
can be restored. I was thrilled but when I tried it as instructed, the password wouldn't go through.
After a series of disheartening and distressing trials (my email had been hacked too and it was impossible to find

Reminder about Maternity Leave! + PortCon!This weekend I will be 36 weeks pregnant!Reminder about Maternity Leave! + PortCon!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you not pregnancy literate, this means that sometime between this weekend and next, my baby will be pretty much fully developed. Though we want her to stay in there for a few more weeks and cook up really well, she does have the potential to arrive just about anytime now.
In the first few weeks, I expect to be pretty scarce on DA and online in general. For those of you interested in updates on baby's arrival, I recommend checking my personal twitter account which I will likely update soon after she gets here (assuming all goes well and I am able to do so). Probably don't want to follow that account unless you're REALLY interested in Sailor Moon, just sayin' But I do have a stock account on twitter, too which is less personal stuff and more just stock updates.
While I am away, I hope to have a few friends checkin

throngs of frustrated cartoonists wandering the beach in search of ideas.
And as if the self-imposed pressure isn't enough, there are usually deadlines looming!

I may try a different approach, or a new pose, but aside from dashing into the kitchen for a refill on my bathtub-sized cup of black coffee, I keep my you-know-what in my chair at my drawing desk and plow forward.

For the last few months i've been deeply involved in the gamergate scandal/movement/internet war thing. Yes, it's still going on 5 months later, which may as well be centuries in internet time. It's been exhausting and pointless. The whole thing is more or less about SJWs fighting against people who want better "ethics in gaming journalism". In other words, something stupid. I don't even play video games.

TIP OF THE DAY: SIGNING YOUR WORKArt Tip of the Day -- Signing Your Work:TIP OF THE DAY: SIGNING YOUR WORK1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Is there a right or wrong way to sign your work? No - however, there are ways that are more professional, and ways that are less.
What you want is to use your signature in order for people to be able to see your credit - NOT as a way to copyright or claim ownership of your work. If you are already receiving printed credit for your work, for example, as a byline for a magazine article, then it's unnecessary. Some publishers will want it off the art, because it interferes with the image. So never put a signature in a place where it overlaps the art and cannot be removed.
If you do want your signature on your work, this is NOT the same signature which you sign your financial documents with. That would be a mistake, from a Identity theft standpoint. Also, your signature should reflect your brand. it's part of your look. Most of all, however, it needs to be small, but completely legible, and in an unobtrusive part of the drawing - but not too f
