Doctor Who / Pokemon Theory MUST READ!!!Don't look at me like I'm mad (I am but that's not the point), this is a really cool theory, bear with me!Doctor Who / Pokemon Theory MUST READ!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was thinking today, regeneration in Doctor Who and evolution in Pokemon are almost exactly the same process. They both involving a glowing light, that spreads over and through the body of the organism and moulds it into the new form, they both occur normally after physical strain from a battle or injury, and they both involve a slight change of physical form and personality, but memories stay intact. So perhaps, just maybe, pokemon are related to time lords. So, here's the crazy bit: What if pokemon where the creatures of Gallifrey, and a time lord, during the time war, used a portal in the multiverse to move them to the pokemon world, in order to save them from the upcoming death of their planet. In other words, what if pokemon are not native to the pokemon world, but originally evolved on Gallifrey?
FAQ What does "yuumei" mean?FAQ7 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yuumei (幽冥 or 幽明) means light and darkness, strange and deep, hades, and semidarkness. Not to be confused with yuumei (有名) which means famous... (In my defense, I picked this name when I was 12 and didn't realize it also meant famous...)

Why didn't you reply to my comment/note?
I'm terribly sorry but due to the enormous amount of notes and comments I receive, it's simply impossible to read and reply to most of them. I tried to reply to all the notes but it eventually just got to be too much and took time away from drawing.

Sipping tea with your Muse Only by fostering a facility with the vocabulary of your artistic medium of choice, can you begin to really free yourself to be open to being creative with it.Sipping tea with your Muse1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The size of that vocabulary is another matter, and that’s about growth, improvement and development. These are important as well, and intricately linked to creativity, in parallel (more on that in a future article). But first let’s talk simply about the genesis aspect of art.
Remember when you were in high school, doodling in the margins of your notebooks? Ballpoint pen and edges of blue-lined notebooks, with half an ear listening to the lesson of the day? There was a familiarity in that setting, and ease that you moved through when you sketched these throwaway doodles. Every once in a while you’d accidentally make one that you’d really like, and you’d save that scrap of paper with notes on American History melding into the lines of a drawing of your D&D charac

Seriously. He's worse than cat gravity.
Yesterday's adventure was an appointment with my accountant to get my taxes done. Yes, I have an accountant. It's a necessity at this point. The 1040 was easy when all I had were W-2s to file, back when I worked "regular" jobs. Student loans were trickier, but not impossible.
However, if you're seriously self-employed, part time or full time, you want someone else to do the taxes for you. Trust me on this. Not just because the paperwork is more complicated, but if there's ever trouble with the IRS or the state, you have someone who can help back you up. Get someone who specializes in business taxes, because they can find all the various deductions for expenses, plus make sure you're doing everything legally. I wi

How I (Finally) Got Good SkinI get lots of compliments on my skin in my photos. I got told yesterday on my latest set how nice it was. I won't ever deny it; I use photoshop to take out distracting blemishes, but for the most part, my skin is how you see it. I wanted to go into a bit more depth on how I got to this place. This journal may get a bit gross at times, just sayin'How I (Finally) Got Good Skin3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you

Winter Nature PhotographyWe all know about the cons of shooting in winter: it's cold, it's dark, there is no bright colours, no flowers, the battery dies faster, and getting to places may be harder. But there are may positive things too! Here's my list for a nature photographer, and feel free to add to it in the comments:Winter Nature Photography3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1.There are opportunities for making both happy and gloomy pictures. It is easier to make a horror/macabre/dark photo when everything looks dead and desolate, not green and lushy.
2. You have a reason to spend time outside.
3. There is time to master low-light photography.
4. Photography is a good excuse for walking in knee-deep snow.
5. Since everything is dry and covered with snow, you have to be more creative in finding an interesting thing to shoot, and post-processing.
6. The sunrise and sunset last longer, so you have more golden hour time (assuming that you get to see the sun at all
7. There are some great natural phenomena, such as hoarfrost, sundogs, northern lights or ice fog.
Pokemon: Explorers of Lifeso instead of doing Lost Paws (Since that didn't go too well) I already started creating a pokemon comic. If you're a pokemon fan or know someone who is be sure to tell him/her about it! I already drew the cover and the only thing I need to finish is re-drawing it on my laptop. Two main characters will be two of my fav pokes (Hint: the main character is an electric type and is a female the poke can't be chosen to be played as or be the partner in any explorers game, while the partner is a second stage of a fire starter and is a male).Pokemon: Explorers of Life8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Main Legendaries: Xernas, Yveltal and Reshiram
