Something else I feel that I need to mention in order to contextualize my journal better is that, I did not intend for the list to contain every exhaustive permutation of subcategories for anything I mentioned. Point 4 by itself (common furry style) contains all sorts of variations on anatomy etc--the thing is, with each definition, what it means is that when someone says "furry" they don't MEAN to drill down to an exact picture in their head (This is not the Furry Code after all).
But, nonetheless they usually mean something when they use the word, especially when they use it to exclude other things. Let me give a few examples. (These are all paraphrases of things I've read on the internet at one point or another)
"I'm not a furry, I only draw anthro art."

The Future of Media- MusingsAwhile back, someone interviewed me for a business class. I thought a couple of the questions dug up some hot air worth blowing around, so here it is!The Future of Media- Musings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
QUESTION: In your opinion is small businesses, including physical and online stores, growing? Also do you think they will ever grow to the point where they are a bigger and more influential part of the economy than big businesses?
That's an interesting question- since I mostly just make a comic, my insight is limited. I haven't a clue pertaining to business as a whole. Regarding entertainment media, things are moving in two starkly different directions right now, and it fascinates me.
Corporate media conglomerates continue cannibalizing one another, growing fewer and bigger, into titanic monoliths. Think Time Warner- or as a recent example, look at how Disney has assimilated both Marvel and Star Wars. All those properties are now the domain of one massive corporation. It's unprecede

Contest! Draw Sophie and get a MH Drawing!What is this contest about?:Contest! Draw Sophie and get a MH Drawing!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Draw my doll Sophie
you can draw her chibi, realistic or in your own style, but her face must be always visible and you must draw her joints. She is a doll, I wouldn't like her to look like she wasn't. This means you MUST draw her joints, but you can draw her with any expression, like if she was alive.
You can draw her with the clothes she has in the photos or even design your own clothes for her, so you have total freedom about it.
how many drawings can I do for this contest?:
As many as you want without limit, as long as they are 100% original and finished (full colored). No work in progress, no drawings in striped paper.
Traditional or digital?:
Both are accepted
Please, be original:
Don't steal other people's drawings, don't use bases, and please, don't just copy a photo T_T
You may use a photo as a reference, but don't traze it.
If you do, you will be kicked out from the co

Confirmation from Mike over at Kanzenshuu, V-Jump specifically states future Gohan will be a Super Saiyan 3 in the Hell Mission for GM9.
This was not a transformation I wanted to happen. This one specifically doesn't really screw up any plans, but I still didn't want to have to include it.
By the time Heroes is done, I guess I'll have to give everyone SS3
Seems the next what-if transformation MIGHT be SS3 Future Gohan, have to wait for confirmation. Anyway, colored version of the avatrs:

This is a guide for people who start with commissions, the compiled points serve as advice on how to proceed. Sometimes I was asked for tips and decided to write this. After being on deviantart and other places and making commissions for few years I have gathered quite a bit of experience.
I hope you will find this helpful and enjoyable.
To sell anything (pictures, writing, crafts...etc) you need first to be discovered and seen by potential customers. Here is how you can make that happen!

What The Crap Is Even Furry?I think sometimes it gets confusing when we're discussing "furry" because the word covers several different definitions and literally nobody wants to be left out of including their Doom cyberdemon fancharacter and who are you to judge, anyhow?What The Crap Is Even Furry?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Being an english major with an interest in linguistics, I find this is simultaneously a boon--as the lack of solid definitions for any of these prevents people from being shoved out the door for failing to meet that definition . . . but at the same time, it causes an enormous amount of confusion when we're talking past each other saying two (or fourteen) entirely different things with the same word.
Furry as it is used commonly means:
1 - The furry fandom in general. What this necessarily encompasses is hard to pin down; to some people you have to actually accept yourself as part of the fandom, but it's also possible to be a big fat geek about it and clearly be in denial of whether or not you are
DB Kai and Heroes: Update 3I got most of the help I needed with Dropbox. Still need two referrals though: https://db.tt/SmKAt3dNDB Kai and Heroes: Update 32 years ago in Personal More Like This
On to the main events: This month's V-Jump. Pictures for everything are at the bottom of the journal.
A little tidbit before we get started here. Dragon Ball Kai is officially confirmed to be returning to Japanese television with the Buu Arc, which will be replacing Toriko. I suppose that once it's released in the US, I'll finally have a reason to buy Kai. Before, I didn't feel like purchasing an incomplete product, but now I don't really have a valid excuse. Hopefully they'll do some nice economy box sets that I can pick up.
The main reason for the journal is Heroes JM3 information. To be more specific, the avatars new designs have been revealed (albeit in mediocre quality for now). You'll need an account to view the video, and it's not great quality, but it is the only source for the group right now: http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm22931056

Calendar!I am happy now because the test copy of my calendar has finally arrived!Calendar!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's about three quarters of the amazing front cover. Leave me alone, I'm not a photographist.
The company I went through charged $23 to have it printed, but now I see why, because it's quite big and of really insane quality. Each page is like, really thick and the colours came out super great.
I got to choose the dates that I wanted on it but I went a bit crazy so it has lots of dates for lots of countries.
Now I can always have an inspirational Rowan picture to look at if I ever feel my vital manliness waning. And by 'always' I guess I mean 'during September 2014.' Before or after that, my manliness is a lost cause.
I was kinda forced to add a themed border, but it works pretty well, even for the very light toned pages.
But yeah anyway, I was really happy with how it came out and making this was a fun excuse to draw all the characters interacting. It was interesting thinking up all the

PE: Creating your own MangaIntroductionPE: Creating your own Manga1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
You have a great story, a bunch of characters and you want to create a manga. However, where do you start? Do you have it Left->Right or Right->Left? How should you publish it (*note: some publishers may have additional requirements/restrictions)?
The process is pretty much the same for any graphic progression such as comics.
Luckily, there are a great number of tutorials to help you on your way.
A storyboard is a panel or series of panels which detail the sequence of significant events in a planned scene, i.e. a rough sketch coupled with some words to describe the actions in the scene.
At this point you'd need to have an idea of whether you are making a left->right or right->left manga and your story has been separated into scenes and plot points you wish to use to drive your story.
Dear deviantART...I am refusing to use the rebranded name because, I'm annoyed about the rebrand. I'm annoyed about your direction, your lack of focus in key areas and your lack of communication.

Last year you spent a lot of money on a rebrand, this year you've cut 50% of your work force, entire departments have been decimated and peoples lives have been thrown upside down without notice. But you never really communicated to anyone why. You still don't, you're not telling the community what's happening and that's only going to hurt you. People will see that helpdesk tickets take longer to get a response, people see that lots of people are no longer staff and you're not letting them know why. You know that people have a belief that the site is dying, you're only furthering it right now. How much of a better state would the site be in if the rebrand hadn't happened? Would I and the rest of the people that lost our jobs without notic

What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Well, this will be a big one because I have had a considerably monumental last month or so. I'll keep the journal as short as I can, and indeed I don't have any wedding pictures yet so it will be lacking in that department for a bit. Since I was kinda unable to take any pics of the wedding myself, Georgie and I are the only ones who were there who don't have any pics of it yet!
But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's start at the beginning, by which I mean Christmas eve. The first part of Jesusfest 2012 was spent at our house, where it was my job this year to cook the Christmas dinner, which I spent a while doing.
In usual tradition, my brother and sister joined us for dinner, Christmas specials, opening presents at the stroke of midnight, and copious drinking.
The next day we had lunch at my mums with her side of the family, and after that, Christmas dinner at my dads house.
Oh and we gave the puppies their usual presents.
