I'll tell you a tale I know nothing about;
The Admission is free, so pay at the door,
Now pull up a chair and sit on the floor.
One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight;
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot each other.
A blind man came to watch fair play,
A mute man came to shout "Horray!"
A deaf policeman heard the noise and
Came and killed those two dead boys.
He lived on the corner in the middle of the block,
In a two-story house on a vacant lot;
A man with no legs came walking by,
and kicked the lawman in his thigh.
He crashed through a wall without making a sound,
into a dry creek bed and suddenly drowned;
The long black hearse came to cart him away,
But he ran for his life and is still gone today.
I watched from the corner of the big round table,
The only eyewitness to facts of my fable;
But if you doubt my lies are true,
Just ask the blind man, he saw it too.
I don't know

CORUS NPC EVENT 2
Alright, my non-competitive underlings! Since you're not competing in the tournament, I'm gonna hafta ask little favours of you from time to time. Don't you worry much, they're nothing life-threatening. Not right NOW, anyway. Who knows what kinda missions I might send the more capable Corusites on in the future? Anyways, here's the few things I need you guys to do.
Number one! Did you guys know we got a daycare and nursery? For the baby Pokémon. And occasionally baby humans. Not many students get knocked up, I should say, but whatever. We got it if we need it. Well, it's kinda fallen into disarray. It looks more like a prison than a nursery! So we've set aside a budget for you guys to go spruce it up, make it actually look inviting to the little ones! Check out Severstal market for furniture, paint and any other kind of crap you deem fit to go in there. Have fun!
Number two! The deserts of Corus hide tons of ancient ruins. And inside ancien

At least my mother didn't suffer and she was able to plan her own funerals and talk with all of us. She knew this will be happen (even how fast) and I and with my family and relatives will do our best to keep living on. I promised her some thing and I will keep them.
Now I know how some of you felt when you losed you loved one to the cancer.

YER APP APP REQUIREMENTSYER APP2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This OCT supports an open application form, which means you'll get to make your own applications/references! The style of these applications is free for you to decide, however there are some requirements to make it easy for admins and other contestants to reference your character/understand properly.
What you MUST include in your application:
• 2 full body references of your human character: a front view and a back view
• a full body reference of your mount/battle dino in a pose that clearly shows off it's markings, if it has any (side profile is usually a sure choice)
• a full body reference of your pet
• All required references must be in color
Your battle dino must be a full grown adult. We don't allow adolescent dinosaurs because that would be considered cheating the height caps. If your dino is over 3.5 meters / 11.5 feet tall in it's adult form, IT IS NOT ALLOWED. (The only exception ar
Believe in Yourself. Nobody Else Will.This last 6 months saw the turn around of all the people in my life (as in everyone) asking me to quit art and focus on something else. I no longer receive constant suggestions of other careers that I should pursue. I'm sure many of you have had awkward conversations with strangers or elderly people about your desire to become an artist. I had one today (she told me art was not a feasible career). Only now my belief in myself is at 100% so that person walked away believing in me as well.Believe in Yourself. Nobody Else Will.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I could go on about my personal journey and about how butthurt I was that people weren't acknowledging the work that I was doing; the sacrifice that I was making, but most of you can relate as well. I actually developed quite an ego. A feeling that I was better than all of them, and that they were just ignorant assholes. Was that productive? I'm not sure. Would it be productive now that I'm entering galleries and doing shows (schedule coming soon)? FUCK NO!

Why I disagree with Kony 2012Many on here and on Facebook have messaged me about the Kony 2012 movie. It's very well-made and definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.Why I disagree with Kony 20123 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Kony is a terrible criminal, and I am very much for bringing him to justice. However, I do not share the enthusiasm of the overwhelming majority about the movie and the proposals put forward by the makers. Here are ten criticisms I came up with, in no particular order.
1) If something is being hyped up all around you, this is a strong signal to think for yourself. Be especially suspicious when someone wants to use FORCE to do GOOD. Paradoxically, if you REALLY care - don't fall for appeal to emotion, as is being done here. Consider the implications and outcomes, rather than the motives. Don't let the public opinion shape yours, let the facts do so. Don't let one issue overshadow other issues which could be more important. Don't be afraid to disagree with the majority. Truth i

Wendy Davis talked for 11 hours straight. No food. No drinks. No bathroom breaks. She couldn't even pause for a moment to take a sip of water or else she'd give up the floor and the vote could get underway. 11 hours straight she talked and just before the midnight cutoff she was interrupted, and the vote began... only to become absolute pandemonium as the crowd watching protested the interruption.
The GOP insists that the vote carried and passed, while the Democrats insist that they were still taking votes after the midnight cutoff thanks to the chaos that ensued. This is going to be one of those instances where the GOP are gonna try to lie and shove their way through our diplomatic

So I know I have mentioned in the past about a possible contest so I finally decided to sort it out so Yes a contest is happening!!!
So in a previous blog I asked what theme you fancied and the sports AU theme seemed the most popular choice. Just so you know the other theme choices are still in the forefront of my mind as I definitely plan on doing more that one contest this year. aha
So anyway just to clarify the contest this time will be Sports AU themed. It is in fact up to you how you want to incorporate that in your submission.

I've often spend my time discussing the best way to handle commissions with clients and artist friends that I came to the conclusion that clarity and understanding is key.
I will divide the guidelines I work with based on 3 commission types.

Reading all 3 parts will give you the full scope as a lot of it applies to one another as well.
1. Reference board.
If you as a client have very specific characteristic features all set and done for your character it can be very useful for the artist if you'd make them a reference board of art and photos that portray these things.
The artist does not wish for a life story of your character ( unless specifica

What is SketchBomb?Hey everyone,What is SketchBomb?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a while since I've really taken a minute to explain SketchBomb for those who are unaware.
SketchBomb is a sketch group I started in March of 2010 in San Francisco. I was working as a freelance artist and craved face-to-face interaction with artists again. I posted where I'd be, and hoped people would show up. A small group of enthusiastic artists did and now we've been going for three years and have tons of attendees. We even have chapters in other parts of the country.
What do we do? We have themes that we all sketch towards, we share the sketches everyone does with the entire group, and we have a lot of fun. SketchBomb meets once a month, on a Saturday (announced ahead of time), at 8 PM. Anyone is welcome to attend. We have a very open environment and everyone's contributions are given equal time in the spotlight. I've been to other sketch groups that don't have such an open philosophy and it was a very important element for me to try and get right.

Remember Shimeji, that desktop mascot progam? Yeah, I know it's so two months ago. Anyway, I started a branch of the code called Shimeji-ee (Shimeji English Enhanced.) It's Shimeji, but completely in English/Engrish (including the configuration files) with some new enhancements.
I'm mainly here asking people to contribute to the project: programmers, wiki writers, and people to make new Shimeji types.
So far, I have the English translation mostly done (although it could use editing) and I've added support for: multiple Shimeji types at once, better context menus, and the ability to force a Shimeji to perform behaviors. I've pretty much done everything I want with the program and I'm not really intending to do more programming. But I opened up the p

People like this are usually trying to guilt-trip artists into taking on massive projects for no pay, claiming it'll be good advertisement or that they'll get paid once the project becomes a success. The truth is, the chances of getting picked up by a major studio are extremely small. The so-called free advertisement the artist may or may not end up getting is usually not worth the effort.
Just to give you a taste of the disrespect for an artist's time and energy that some people have, here's a choice quote:
"Need Animator-I have a story that's 4 seasons long, 10 episodes each. looking for maximum quality. No pay. I will warn that I am very picky"
