PTSD Awareness Day"I was a monster. The littlest of things would set me off. I was screaming, looking for a fight. There was so much rage inside of me. In the end, I guess I was mad at myself...for surviving."PTSD Awareness Day3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"I still hear the screams, I still smell the blood. I can still taste the dust on my lips. Every time I close my eyes, my heart leaps into my throat when I see that missing wall, the dust billowing out. I still feel my throat going raw as I scream for the two that we knew were underneath the rubble. I still feel his swollen, bloody hand in mine as he fights to live...."
Sometimes I hurt the ones that I love the most, even though they're the ones that I need the most...because there's so much pain and anger and hurt going on inside of my head and my heart that I just don't know what to do with it. I feel like there's no way to say that I'm sorry enough.

Tyr basked in his double victory and throughout Godhome the air was noisy with his praise. His fellow Outlanders felt they needed to gain a success of their own to prove their equal worth. The friends were gathered in Odin's private chambers at Battlehall, sharing their plans over a barrel of good ale.
'All we need to do' said Hoenir 'is go out into the Outlands, find a troll and kill him.'
'Tricky,' muttered Odin 'they are very strong. Tyr must be more powerful than we realised.'
'I could bring one down with magic' Loki reminded them.
'No' Odin objected 'we are Osfolk now and should behave as warriors, not as chanting trollwives.'
'I am not a warrior' Loki replied sulkily.
'Then stay here' Odin retorted coldly.
Loki rose to leave, but concern for his friends forced him to speak. 'Beware of the trollwives, if you meet one without my aid, she will kill you.'
'Don't worry yourself' Hoenir smiled. 'We will only look for a male.'
Odin and Hoenir made ready and sharpen

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Murphy Apprenticeship updateHey all!Murphy Apprenticeship update7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone that donated to the Kickstarter, thanks for being patient. We hit a few delays due to the loss of our dog, Red, and my broken collar bone/shoulder which delayed The Wake. But me, my wife, and my students are almost done making the final touches, and we hope to have digital and hardcover editions available soon.
I'm thrilled to say that 3 out of 5 of my students have landed work with major publishers--two with Marvel and one with Boom! Studios...and Cafe Racer isn't even out yet. I'd love to think that the Apprenticeship had a hand in their success, but the truth is that each artist got work based on the caliber of the talent they possessed long before I got my hands on them. I did what I could for them on my end, which included sharing all my editorial contacts, vouching for their professionalism with publishers, and advising with contracts where I could. When Cafe Racer is published, I plan on handing out copies to every editor I can while
On Commissions and What I Require of ClientsSo some things went down a couple months back, which resulted in me getting conned out of a good hundred bucks of work. I'm not particularly angry about it, because I have known for years that my trust in strangers over the Internet would inevitably bite me in the butt. As an artist who does not require payment up front and maintains a no-questions-asked refund policy (up to sending the high resolution files), I take a huge amount of risk on myself and must trust that my work will be respected enough to be compensated accordingly. Of course, the day was coming when this strategy of taking all the risk off the client would backfire, and lo it did.On Commissions and What I Require of Clients2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It came. It went.
While I'll be opening up the gates for more coloring commissions in a few days, I figured it would be best to give a heads up to my new clients so they know how the system works, and what they'll be needing.

Not because of copyright. I understand that when you post something on the internet, you're posting it for everyone to look at, and it's going to get shared around. But the comped-up piece of shit you see above (minus my commentary) is all over the internet - it's far more widely distributed than my original version. Back when I used to read my messages here and on Fetlife, I had 12-20 messages per day about stuff like this. Mostly it was people trying to be helpful and telling me "HEY! Look over here, there's another person who smeared shit all over your art!" And it used to take me an hour every morning to cut and paste URLs into DMCA requests to get this kind of crap taken down.
But that's really only the tip of the emotional iceberg for me. About 1 in 10 times that I post a DMCA I'd get a message from the perso

SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?Every single cosplayer in the world has one painful problem that we can all relate to: we're always broke. Always.SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fabric, thread, machines, paints, wood, tools, thermoplastics, LEDs, mould castings, brushes, dyes, wigs, make-up, contacts, boots, prosthetics, convention tickets, travel expenses, luggage, skin care, gym... the list goes on and on. Every single cent we earn, we constantly throw it all back into making our beloved costumes and feeling good for a few hours while stressing for months prior-hand. Non-cosplayers may not get it, but we do. For us, it's not a sacrifice. The chance to hone our creative spirit and create something from nothing is a rewarding life experience. Some think that the cost of an outfit is more valuable compared to medication and psychological sessions.
But like it not, we've all gotta come to a conclusion that the hobby must come to an end for us one day, and to have some money saved up for your next step in life is a greater advantage than having nothi

I remember when I joined this site, and there were fan comics and fan fiction I really liked, and I would draw for them and be really excited just to be noticed by the person. I would always try to make friends with them and get their attention, but my art wasn't really anything special so I didn't get a whole lot of props
It's really weird to be on the other side of the spectrum... Like I don't understand how peeps can see fan art of their work and not get really super excited and want to hug the living day lights out of the people that draw for them and comment on their stuff...

DC puss out.While at my local comic-book emporium, I had a quick leaf through Harley Quinn #0 to check out the winning page from DC’s recent talent search.DC puss out.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It didn’t do much to dampen the disdain I harbour for the big-name comic companies.
For a start, I’m not sure how that page was selected as the cream of the crop. Bravo to the artist for being selected, sure, but there were far more dynamic, lively examples I saw posted here on DA, and I'm genuinely surprised that none of them were chosen. The page selected feels just as stiff, stagnant, sterile and devoid of life as much of the other stuff DC discharges onto the shelves (which might have been why they ran with it).
The main gripe I have, though, is that they changed the final panel.
For those that (somehow) missed the whoo-haa that the whole talent search kicked off: the script DC provided to their would-be artists called for illustrations depicting the titular Harley trying to off herself in a series of absurd ways: holding

Some of you read my fan comic "Zombies" on here, and there are a few things I would like to request due to the
comic becoming more popular. You guys are awesome fans, there are just a few comments that keep returning
and I would like to clear some air:
1. I know how Allen's scar is drawn. It seems that some peeps get mad bothered about the scar going across
his nose and it has been pointed out to me enough times to kind of get on my nerves. I choose to draw it
that way because I like the way it looks, it's my style, and because Zombies is an AU and I can get away
with anything I want. People twist characters all the time to make them fuck, I don't see why I can't
draw a silly scar and just have it let be.
2. Please stop being aggressive towards stoner Lavi. Though most people have been really chill with this concept,

LOSE THE DUCKFACE ROUTINE! Most girls are great looking. And some are not so great looking, ok, but NO ONE is BETTER looking doing the muther funking duckface!
Most girls nowadays seems to be doing it, and let me tell you, there are few guys out there who enjoy watching pictures of girls who look like they're biting down on bathing-rings whilest trying to look hot holding the camera 50feet above their heads. Sorry
Now this is no major issue, but I've talked to alot of girls about this, and as most are to embarassed to even admit they are doing anything out of the ordinary on the pictures (....), some come clean and tell that they belive that its hot and that guys would like it.
I'm just here to pop your bubble gals. The only guys who might find the features shown in said photos are guys with tanning-lines above their bellybuttons and an overly wrinkled forehead that take pictures of themselves in their parents bathroom. An

Is Cosplay Copyright Infringement?There are many many misconceptions about what is copyrighted and what is not in the cosplay world so I'm here to clear some of this up.

Mind you, my word is NOT gold and please feel free to correct me if you find viable proof that states otherwise !
Myth: All cosplay is copyright infringement!!
Fact: Yes and no.
"Copyright attorneys will tell you that in a very literal sense these costumes are derivative works of the original, requiring those who make them to first obtain a copyright license from the owners. Making your own costume for Halloween should be fair use of a copyright. However, no use is fair use until a judge says it is. That means that you have to get to trial first. The process of getting there is very costly. The Warner Bros cease and desist letter means that
