Why The Staff Is Wrong About TracingFriends at deviantART, here is the article that was part of the inspiration to create this club. Before you can understand this article you'll need to have read it.Why The Staff Is Wrong About Tracing7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
While I have the utmost respect and appreciation for the job that the CEA team does, I was shocked, disgusted, and incredibly disappointed when I came across the aforementioned article. I've been a member of deviantART for quite some time and I remember the days before all this tracing nonsense was allowed.
Given recent events which I will not directly link to, but I'm sure many of you know what I'm talking about- it's hard for me to believe that the staff is still turning a blind eye to tracing, still letting this farce go on. In the past few months there have been several incidents related to tracing that have caused large stirs in deviantART, and I thought it would perhaps become clear that a lot of people are angry. It's not just a few people. Remember the uproar o

A Huge Thank you and notes on creating AbraxasFirst off- thanks guys for your support on my last journal. I didn't mean for it to be so cryptic. At one point in the night I woke up from a 16 hour grief induced sleep coma to post up something and then fell back asleep soon after. It was such a hard day yesterday, but every day it slowly gets a bit better.A Huge Thank you and notes on creating Abraxas3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Again, thank you SO much for your kind words. They really do mean a lot to me.
In other notes, I've seen this: and when I saw it was like :iconjoyplz:
It dawned on me that I SUCK at things like oh... copypasta images into paint and making them look good .__. So I decided to just talk about what inspired this guy:
Arguably, the best thing I've ever given life to was this short, grouchy little wizard. He didn't come out of thin air however. There's a lot of things that went into his evolution as a character. One of the biggest was on his appearance. If you haven't noticed before, Abraxas's eyes and usually solemn expression was inspired b
Casting Your CharactersObjective: Choose 3-4 OCs and cast them using real actors/comedians you think would suit the roles, based on physical appearance or personality (or both). You can use current actors or actors from the past. Afterwards, tag 5-10 people you think would enjoy casting their own OCs.Casting Your Characters1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Guillermo de la Guarda
Actor: Anthony Quinn
Movie/Story: The Periphery of Mictlan
It's a little bit scary how much Guillermo and Mr. Quinn have in common. Both of them had parents who were involved in the Mexican Revolution, both of them moved to America, living lives of discrimination and both of them resorted to boxing/wrestling to support their families early on in life. So is it possible I'm "type casting"? Yes, horribly! But let's face it, if Anthony were still alive and in his 40s he'd be the perfect Guillermo. Just look at that wonderful balance of pizzazz and ruggedness~
Felicity WestmarshI'm always needing to reference Lissy to various people for commissions and trades and such...so i figured I'd just make a giant journal all about her to make things easy on me If you think there's something I should add, tell me!Felicity Westmarsh4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Name: Felicity "Lissy" Westmarsh
Born: October 4th, 1978 (making her 5 months younger than the twins)
Looks: Red brown hair, which is never shorter than her shoulder blades and usually longer. It's very floofy, so she just about always has it tied back. Her eyes are a pale green, about the color of jade. She's taller than average, and on the thin side, but she's got curves. Especially chest wise, lol. Notably she has long fingers and her feet are on the small side. She's got a sprinkling of freckles across her nose and cheeks year round, and they get darker and more numerous in the sun.
When not in uniform she wears jeans and t-shirts and tank tops. Her shirts are either plain or decora

SchediaphiliaUrban dictionary -Schediaphilia4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Schediaphilia or toonophilia is the primary and exclusive sexual attraction to cartoon or anime characters. A person with this attraction feels love, sexual arousal, or emotional attraction to virtual characters.
Yes, I do most likely have it. Is this a bad thing? NO, IT FUCKING ISNT. I'm still a normal human being. Yes, pathetic, but not bad. SO STOP TREATING IT LIKE IT IS.
People who have this are most often lonely, or distressed. So telling them that its a sin, WON'T FUCKING HELP. You're making it worse for yourself and them.

In this blog entry, you'll find, from time to time, questions about you, opinions, short theories to discuss, trivia, riddles, a bit of everything I can think of! And you will be encouraged to leave a comment to let us know who are you, to interact and make friends!
Some things should be kept in mind:
We're not going to tolerate bashing of any kind. No hate messages, no spam, no chain posts. Be nice to each other! If you don't agree with somebody, talk politely or don't say anything.
We are one of the friendliest, most lovely branches of the Harry Potter fandom, so I'd like to think we won't have many problems, but if you do anything mentioned above, you might be banned from the group.
