Sucker Punch:: Guardian AngelEveryone has an angel.
A guardian who watches over us.
We can't know what form they'll take.
One day, old man.
Next day, little girl.
But don't let appearances fool you.
They can be as fierce as any dragon.
Yet they're not here to fight our battles.
but to whisper from our heart.
reminding that it's us...
lt's every one of us who holds
the power over the worlds we create..
We can deny our angels exist..
convince ourselves they can't be real.
But they show up anyway.
At strange places.
And at strange times.
They can speak through any character
we can imagine.
They'll shout through demons
if they have to...
challenging us to fight.

Luffy is not a "dumb" characterI know this is random but during my usual One Piece obsessing online I came across a lot of statements about Luffy describing him as a dumb, static character (coming from both fans and haters) and I felt like posting what I thought about this.Luffy is not a "dumb" character3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Luffy is a simple-minded, brash, enthusiastic character with a ton of energy to exert.
A generic Shonen main character following his dreams.
What sets him apart is Oda's revelation of his character beyond that first look and his usual attributes.
As the One Piece story develops, Luffy is forced to make more and more mature decisions as a captain and this has revealed a side of him that can only be seen in these situations. A hidden maturity that makes him such a facinating character to me. Isn't that how true character is revealed in real life? It's not like someone changes with traumatic situations placed before them, that's when they show their true colors that would not have been seen otherwise.
So character-wise, Luffy is simple ye
The 9 Problems with BEAUTY AND THE BEASTLet me start by saying: Beauty and the Beast is my favorite film of all time.The 9 Problems with BEAUTY AND THE BEAST3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But there've always been things that have crossed my mind as being... "not quite right."
I'm not complaining about the film, only asking the obvious question of: how is this possible?
1. The vanishing king and queen!
Lumiere says in "Be Our Guest" that for... "Ten years we;ve been rusting..." So where are the Prince's parents? To BE a prince it implies you HAVE parents (a King and Queen) but at the end of the movie, during the movie, and at the beginning of the movie there is no sign of his parents.
2. The Prince is Uncharacteristic!
At the beginning of the movie it shows the Prince at the castle door turning the beggar woman away...but isn't the Prince in a household FULL of servants? Why didn't one of them answer the castle door that night? If the intro is correct at the Prince's behavior, being "spoiled, selfish, and unkind" why would the Prince take time out of his day to answe

Puede ser sólo de misterio, sólo de suspenso, o mezcla de ambos. Lo que se tiene que lograr es justamente lo que el género implica, hacer que el lector quiera seguir leyendo para saber cómo va a concluir la/las intriga/s que se planteen en la historia.

GIVE SOME to the Artists
Don't Get DiscouragedLast night on Twitter, one of the people I follow got super-discouraged about drawing and doing comics. Well, everyone, knock it off and here's why:Don't Get Discouraged2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Don't be discouraged by the works of other artists. I know that it's really easy to be! Usually it is because you are comparing your abilities to someone who has likely had many more years of practice and learning than you have. Of course that's going to be discouraging! Use their art and technique as inspiration for your own work! Feed off of it like a cicada on a tree root; learn and grow from their work and improve yourself!
Don't stop drawing. It's easy to say 'welp, eff this noise' when you find someone who draws better than you; but that's just not how to do things. If you stop after you get discouraged, you'll never practice and then you'll never improve and you'll always be at the same skill level. Don't say "I'll never be able to draw like that". Instead, say "I'll learn how to draw like that"! Then you go do it.
Don't worry about

This is PayPal and points commissions. I accept both. The points price is little higher because DA charge me for fee when I convert the points to money.
I will start the commission after I get paid.
Please be patient with the commission. I'll start it right after I get paid. But remember, There might be someone who was before you.
Time spent on each commission is very varies if you ask for different details and if I have other things to do.
For each extra character, that would be half of the price more(for example: your order cost you $6 with one chibi, 2 chib

"Oh, my OC was born in an unknown island of an unknown sea, and it changed its location,
Wherever the sea drags it!"
Well, let's say a huge NO to this annoying "unknown" word. Usually it's just an excuse for a poor background history. If you really love your OC and want to make her\him fitting the One Piece World and believable, you have to start from this. A native island is extremely important for a good backstory.
First of all let's be straight - One Piece geography is very simple. We have four oceans: South, North, East and West Blue. There are not many island out there, the main space is just huge amounts of water. Every ocean verges on Calm Belt, two areas that separate oceans from Grand Li
