I loved so much this episode, the last one where we can see our dear Sasori and Deidara together
[Bullet; Green] Someting especially catched my attention: when everybody is calmed or when there is a moment of peace, then Deidara suddenly brakes that silence spiting out a bunch of shit, so funny [rofl] I laughed so much, he's so f*cked up tbh.
[Bullet; Green] Well, now here I leave some screens. They ALL are PHOTOMANIPULATED by moi for a better fap (mostly for SasoDei fans :iconmuahplz, so feel free to save them if you wish (I just don't like them with those dark eyes, sorry >__> )

Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit: Elves
Tolkien’s texts are notable for their abundance of characters, many of them mentioned perhaps only once, other playing very important parts in the stories. However, it is often very difficult to find any description of how those characters look, and this is what we, artists and illustrators, are usually most concerned with.
So here it is – Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit – a list of all those characters, whose physical appearance is mentioned in the texts, including The Silmarillion and The History of the Middle-earth.
To start with, the Elves. As we know, during the march from Cuiviënén t
Sasori's Past episode#319. SO CONFUSED!+REFERENCES Amazing episode IN SOME MANY WAYS!!!! I don't understand why but personally, I haven't found it a filler episode at all!

SO CONFUSED!+REFERENCES1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'm SO glad that Sasori flash back has been drawn and colored SO GOOD (the characters looked so good and some background scenes looked like a true masterpiece) if we compare it with the non-flash back scenes in the same episode about Chiyo vs. Kankuro fight. I loved Sasori's workshop btw (although it looks so different from the one of the old shippuden episodes)
Ok, I have seen the episode subbed in 2 languages: in english and my native language. Both versions said just the opposite and the subs translations from the japanese audio looked so confusing and lame to me, so please I hope you understand why I'm still confused:

Knite Translators Please ReadWhen I first uploaded Knite, I said anyone can translate it if they want, but I will not be making the translated pages into a flash comic because it takes too much to time... Well, I just found out a way to replace the pages in the flash file with translated pages with just one click I wish I knew it sooner... XDKnite Translators Please Read5 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are 3 requirements for this to work:
1. The translated pages must be the same size 750x600 pixel (so you can't use the larger 900x720 blank pages that I've been posting on dA)
2. The pages must have the same file name.
3. The pages must also be in the same jpeg format.
Here's the download links to all the smaller blank pages and the character fonts (the fonts only work for Roman letters; feel free to use your fonts of choice for languages that don't use Roman Letters. )

What is it like to live in Israel?More than a year ago, I asked a friend what it was like living where she lives. She said it's a difficult question, yet came with an answer. Then she asked me the same question: How is it like to live in Israel? For a long time I wondered whether there's an answer or not, and if there is, how to phrase it. Finally, I think I may have my answer.What is it like to live in Israel?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This week+ is one of the heavily emotional ones. Last Monday was the Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day, in which we commemorate the (over) 6 millions of Jews who perished in the Holocaust. Today we observe the Day of Remembrance for Israeli Fallen Soldiers, which is dedicated to remembering the Israeli soldiers who fell during the many wars we've had since before the actual Declaration of Independence and during their service, as well as the victims of the terror attacks, in Israel and abroad. Tomorrow we'll celebrate our Independence Day.
Living in Israel, for me, means living in the Holy Land, the one and only land in which our forefathers
On Writing - DialogueAnother article for :iconthe-bards-college:On Writing - Dialogue1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Dialogue is one of the hardest parts of writing for new writers. You would think it should be one of the easiest since we talk all the time, but it is very easy to fall into a stilted, unrealistic, boring conversation when you first start.
1) Listen to real people talk
I found this tip time and time again when I was researching this tutorial. By listening to how people talk – absorbing their cadence, slang, phrasing, pauses and exclamations, we learn how we want our characters to speak.
As fanfic writers, we have an added bonus in that we can specifically listen to our character's ways of speech over and over by replaying their dialogue multiple times. I know when I started writing Cicero, I would obsessively look for clips of his dialogue to study the rise and fall of his voice as he talked and pick up phrases that he used.
Sometimes when I am stuck on how to write dialogue without sounding stilted, I will pick u

Just a matter in general. Including my rants - just because it's in my Japanese's nature to be picky about respect and manner and shat like that lol.
I wanted to express my opinions about it, so it's not something I expect people to agree.
(Though, if you are completely against it, I rather don't want to know about it. Please keep it to yourself.)
It came to my attention that some people think that if you give credits, you can take other artists' work and edit over it. (If you get a permission, that's totally great - but in most cases, people don't.)
When I mean "other people's work", I don't mean by screenshots from any "official works" that exists (like anime screenshots, comic pages, etc). I'm specifically pointing out works that are done by an individual (just like us).
It's really sad and annoying to see when you find someone using an illustration from random websites and drawing their stuff over... ruining the original wo

500+ watchers requests (Update)Hey Guys,500+ watchers requests (Update)5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've been thinking a lot on how I would organize the next round of requests. The last one (250+ watchers) was enjoyable but also frustrating given some unfair behaviours.
In France we have a saying : "Au mois de Mai fais ce qu'il te plaît" (in May, do what you want), so here are my despotic rules :
- 10 x portraits (head and shoulders), meaning one single character per drawing (examples here-below)
- you can ask for bichrome or full-colored if you wish
- no "first one first served". I'll chose myself among your requests. So be aware that I will certainly favor the most active watchers.
- In any case I will not draw for people who add me to their watch list after this journal entry. Sorry, I don't want to be rude but don't blame me, blame the opportunists.

Wednesday, Preview Night of Comic-Con
Wednesday, July 17, 2013
When the bustle of tourists in Downtown San Diego is replaced by the flailing of fandoms, and the street signs around the Convention Center have changed from English to Dothraki (not Klingon, like past years), you know it’s time for San Diego Comic-Con 2013!
Wednesday the 17th kicked off this year’s Preview Night, and energy was high as this year’s Comic-Con sprang into motion with a flurry of activity. Many attendees treat the three-hour preview as a time to scan the showroom floor, mentally map places to hit on the later dates, and, of course, buy the must-have items that may be gone by Con’s end. There’s not a lot of cosplaying -- although there is some -- and vendors as

When we watch a cartoon, you don't really think about the people who voice them. They're just there. They don't seem to have age or a mortality to them. In our minds we tend to think of cartoons as immortal. You can drop an anvil on them and they just keep going. Unfortunately, those who give them life, through voice acting and animation, do not. Something to consider when watching any cartoon. Enjoy them, appreciate them. More importantly appreciate the talents behind them. They wont be around forever. (Myself included unfortunately) Stupid mortality.
