Need for ToleranceFrom Reddit:Need for Tolerance4 years ago in Personal More Like This
(This is pretty obvious so I didn't think I need to point it out but it seems that some people need to hear it: No, I don't think all religious people are like this. Yes, I do know these are extreme cases. But the point is that these are all recent events and we shouldn't live in a world where this kind of intolerance still exists. I've lost count the number of times that I've been harassed by Christians so the next time you see someone picking on gay people, saying atheists should be killed, don't be a bystander and just let it happen. Speak up. Stop a crime before it happens.)
BOOK, POLL and CALL FOR SAMPLESHi Peoples!BOOK, POLL and CALL FOR SAMPLES4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have emerged from my cave long enough to write this update on what's happening in my fibre craft world. This consists principally of three items:
THREE: CALL FOR SAMPLES OF TEXTILE WORK
As my book is nearing, sort of, the latter stages of it's final edit, I've come to the conclusion that I've been writing two books at the same time:
"An Introduction to Fibres And Their Uses"
This volume examines fibres including: the history, sources, production, manufacture into various forms such as thread, cord, string & rope etc, tertiary production into fabrics or other useful items and lastly applications in everyday life such as clothes, toys, magic tricks, automobile manufacture, sports equipment, medical sutures, space walk
The right way to end a storyI'd like to share a few paragraphs from a great book about writing fiction by Nancy Kress, called "Beginnings, Middles and Ends". Boring title, but a very useful book that every aspiring writer should have on their reference shelf.The right way to end a story3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The following passage is from the chapter "Satisfying Endings: Delivering on the Promise". Please note that Nancy expounds at length that not all endings need to be happy, and indeed, many shouldn't be in order to be effective. I was not at all upset that there was no "happy" ending with the new ME3 DLC. The issues were more fundamental, with the way they developed the story arc and in the end, betrayed several of them, mostly in delivery. But the problems weren't unsalvageable to begin with.
"To succeed, a climax must do four things:
" 1. The climax must satisfy the view of life implied in your story."
Nancy mentioned before this about making a promise with your story, that t

Base dollsJust a small rant about base dolls ^^ ;Base dolls3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You might have seen them before : They are those naked, bald anime characters in specific poses or situations and meant to be drawn on, copied or traced...
Seriously if you plan on getting better at drawing, don't use them people ! It's very systematic and it hardly make you improve at all : /
Using them you are following a very mechanical process and, once you are done, you will have learned nothing new about anatomy or drawing in general.. Even worse, if the base was inaccurate to start with, you will assimilate WRONG informations without realizing it ! Moreover, you won't make errors or mistake from yourself , which is a crucial part of the process of learning.
I'm not saying there aren't good bases that are helpful out there but about 90% of what you can find on DA seem to be traced from animes. In short they are an interpretation of a pose that has already been interpreted and so they tend to en

What were your first artistic influences, and did they have a hand in the development of your resources?
Ah, this one i remember. In college, for my photography A-Level I was researching digital artists and came across Mika (Mary) Borsiss in a photography journal. She did wonderful fantasy manipulations, so I emailed her (not expecting a response) and a lovelier person you couldn't ask for. She explained all about how she creates her art. After that I was hooked on digital. 4 years later I went over to the resources provider dark side because of the frustration of not being able to find certain stock.

So, let's try out something, shall we?
When you enter your freshly created room you'll notice the following things:
The Title are will be empty
There will be no topic area
You will be placed into 'Guests' by default
You may ask the following; Why am I in the Guests privclass?
It's simple: because the room is in need of setting up and since you've just created it, no one ever joined it before!
You must promote yourself into the highest (Founders is the default privclass for that) group there, so others will know that you're in charge of that room!
How to do that?

The following is an extensive guide to the different Labels a Lesbian may have. In my experience I have come across many Lesbians who just thought they were a Lesbian. This guide was at first for TheLesbianClub's Chatroom Classes, but I have decided that this could benefit not only the club but many people out there.

system levels and other things of comics FMHello from mauroz ^^system levels and other things of comics FM1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm writing this journal entry because some questions have been asked about the last part of Chapter 4 of my Friendship Is Magic comic, and in particular about my reason to include a tier system for the characters. Personally I think it is important to give a certain degree of development, even for this comic.
I know that many here compare it to Dragon Ball Z or any Role Playing Game XD. In truth it will ultimately look a little like that, but not as rigurously, so it won't be necessary to give me explanations on how to create RPG-style systems, because I don't want to make it too complex to understand.
Before I start I want to stay that I'm not an expert in explaining, so I hope I'm going to be as clear as possible.
First: A summary why the girls and other characters are reincarnations of the ponies and other creatures of Equestria (everything I'm telling is fictional and doesn't happen in the original series).

The Recruit :CONTEST 2:Ahh yus.The Recruit :CONTEST 2:1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This contest will be another "Recreate" contest. This time, instead of remaking the cover, I would like to see a remake of an actual page. ^v^
Basically, choose your favorite page from 'The Recruit' and redraw it in your own style!
The new remade page must contain the same content as the original. (Meaning it should tell the same scene and have the text.)
The style must be your own! (No tracing the original page and no using lineart)
Must link back to the original page in your description.
You may enter / create as many pages as you wish! Only one page will win though!
DEADLINE: September 27th

Edit: It's about a week till the deadline! If you're thinking about entering, you should probably start to work on your entry now.
So I thought it was about time for another contest around here. The theme this time is: Redraw a panel or scene from Two-Faced in your own style! You can pick pretty much any scene/panel, and do pretty much anything you want with it (You could even do a short animation if you feel up to it!) As long as it's even midly recognizable as an event or panel from Two-Faced, anything goes!
1.Must be submitted the the Two-Faced group, in the folder "Two-Faced contest 3"
2. Must be your own art and a redraw of a Two-Faced panel/scene. You're allowed to make changes to the scene/panels you're drawing, but don't make up an entire new scene. (That's a contest for another time)
3. I don't think I have to worry about this, but just in case, nothing racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic/ablei
Coining a mental disorder... (Update 3/11)I feel I've encountered this type too many times for it not to need a name.Coining a mental disorder... (Update 3/11)6 months ago in Personal More Like This
For our fanfic riffs, StevosStuff and I coined the term Gappy Stu after encountering tons of similar characters across Touhou fanfiction with the exact same traits. Nowadays, even people who hate my or Stevo's guts use the term Gappy unironically. Now, there's a new thing that needs to be coined.
It's a certain personality type I've encountered across the internet, and I used to be one of these myself. I wanted to call it "IonBlaster Syndrome," named after my old nickname before Spaztique, but that only has significance to me. And besides, even when I first switched over to Spaztique back in the mid 2000s, I still had plenty of serious issues.
UPDATE 3/10/15: Tons of people have said this sounds like Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and although it shares many of the similar symptoms, there are some distinctions between this and general Narcissistic Personality Disorder. What I'm talking ab
