Comprehensive Q&A ThingTaken from :iconSallyad:Comprehensive Q&A Thing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is your name?: Jack Charles Mace
Are you named after anyone?: My middle name comes from my great-grandfather. The first name doesn't, although it was going to be Samuel for a many months, before it changed last minute. Thank goodness for that.
Would you name a child of yours after you?: Not after me, no. I'd be more inclined to name them after someone else.
If you were born a member of the opposite sex what would your name be?: I'm pretty sure my mum came up with something, I forget what.
If you could switch names with a friend who would it be?: I honestly wouldn't.
Are there any mispronunciations/typos that people do w/ your name constantly?: A misspelling of my surname. Some spell it 'Mase'...come on.
Would you drop your last name if you became famous?: I have a feeling my name might prove instrumental in MAKING me famous.
Your gender: Male.
If not, do you want to be?: -
Birthdate: 29th January 1993
MCM London expo this weekendHey guys!

Its best to bring reference too if its one of your OC's.MCM London expo this weekend2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's where you can find us and more info!
Extra love to you if you want a Mias and Elle drawing too. I was so touched by how many of you wanted a Mias and Elle drawing last time ^__^ Thank you in advance.
I'll also be selling some very limited edition Bayou Arcanas too, pre signed and sketched for £15. I only have 30 copies to sell so get em' while you can! I'm not sure when I'll get the opportunity to buy more and make sketches in them again so these are going to be a rare sale
I'm sorry I've not had much time to answer notes and messages. I've only just come back from Kapow and my travels (OMG Blenheim you so perdyful!) and have a lot to plan for this coming weekend.
Request Day 3 - ResultsOkay, first of all: Thank you all for commenting and voting.Request Day 3 - Results2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the final results:
1. Klaine-related stuff (Most comments asked for sex, which I'm not allowed to upload on dA, so you'll have to check it out on tumblr. So here on dA you'll get a Klaine wedding. )
2. Glee graduation/reunion (I'll do a graduation vs. 10 years later piece)
3. Starkid (I have no idea what to draw, but I love Starkid, so I'll find something. Suggestions are still appreciated though. XD)
4. cartoons/comics/animes/movies (Most comments asked for Avengers, Homestuck and Legend of Korra - still have to choose. That's too hard. >.
RIP Edd Gould (1988-2012)...I'm not 100% sure if everyone really can begin to guage just how much of an influence, how much of an inspiration and just how important Edd was to everyone I have come to know here.RIP Edd Gould (1988-2012)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had the honour of meeting Edd at the dawn of the new year. You rarely come across someone as genuine, as lively, as talented and as great a guy as him. Scratch the animation and scratch the legacy, we've lost a great person. A great guy, with plenty of talent, taken away from this world far too soon.
Most of you will have heard the tragic news by now, I found out 2pm on Sunday. Literally seconds after I finished writing my last journal post, Tom broke the news to me. My reaction was simply shock, disbelief and great, great sadness. I was caught off guard by the news, given Edd's constantly positive state of mind, even in grave circumstances as they turned out to be.
He cared about everyone. He put himself in worse scenarios than he could've been for others and you guys. And myself. I became a big fan

Swapping Moff and Flame for snow...Oh dear, things didn't go according to plan today. I was supposed to get one more page done before my holiday, but I had some emergency stuff to do in work as I'm away next week, so sacrificed my day off and a page of Moff and Flickerlee.

I've had quite a busy evening of packing and sorting out insurance and double checking my bag is the right dimensions for carry on luggage. Why is travel so stressful sometimes? Both excited and scared about the Skiing, never done it before. I think I'm gonna become a human snowball at some point. Hehe! I think I'm most excited about the walking and the scenery of the Pyrenees! I always always wanted to see it and now it's finally happening!! Hooray!
Anyway. I'll be gone for a while but there should be a new page by next weekend. Hope you all have a

Another Meme....1) MarhAnother Meme....1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1) Ever read a five fic?
2) Nine... hot?
Oh yes. XDD
3) What would happen if eleven caught four kissing eight?
LOL Probably scream his prudish little head off and faint.
4) six/seven, good couple?
Gandion/Barton...? XDDDD CRACK
5) Ever read any nine/three fluff?
Huh, I haven't put them in a situation together yet. And it'll never be romance.... o.O
6) What song would you use to right a songfic about twelve?
I'm not so good with songfics for the most part.
7) What kind of plot would a fic where two got with ten have?
..............XD I'll just wink at Tiger now.
8) What would happen if eleven got four pregnant?
Well, they'd probably put on their adult-pants and get married, cause that's the responsible thing to do.
9) One is dating two but three is extremely jealous. Three eventually wins two over and breaks them up. Sad and lonely, one ends up having a short and un
Self ControlThe human mind is the greatest weapon, and your body is the ultimate ammunition. Natural human movement can render an armed man defenseless against an empty-handed one. Conviction can see a single fighter defeat an army. A disciplined mind and powerful body are limitless.Self Control2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But little boys who wave martial arts like their fathers gun are dangerous to themselves and others. It takes a disciplined man to understand that it's even more dangerous to lose control of yourself then it is a pistol. Bullet wounds will often heal, but there's no end to the diversity and severity of the wounds an uncontrolled mind can cause.
And for the meme I commented on

Dressphere Contest!!Ok everybody! We had a big ol' discussion, and the majority wants dresspheres! BUT, some of you aren't familiar with Final Fantasy- SO, hopefully I can make this appealing to everybody and give you some ideas if you're stuck at all :3Dressphere Contest!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the rules!
You can draw ANY character from ANYTHING, anyyyything....any show, cartoon, comic, movie....you name it. Those of you who were interested in drawing Celestine for this contest, you can even draw her in a dressphere! That would be amazing!
So, it's not just Disney, or females! Guys and girls from anything you desire!
Also, you don't have to pick Final Fantasy X-2 spheres, you can pick anything Final Fantasy! Classes from Tactics, FF11, you name it- for example Red Mages, Green Mages, Monks, Dancers, Summoners, Onion Knight, Scholars- here is a huge list of classes to help you out!
So, in short, fit a character to a specific Final Fantasy class, and design a brand new outfit for them! You know, like I did for my Disney Girl
On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah ~sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

I guess some of you might have already seen this in `loish 's journal, but I think we should spread this around.
Basically, this community is using a BUNCH of artists' works (my has already been taken down, since I've asked and linked to it), but from those I've recognized the community still uses `loish, *andrahilde , *Apofiss, *boomerr and a whole lot of other DA artists' drawings for their purposes, without A SINGLE CREDIT.
They even make (made) magnets for selling using the works.
More of that, as I've been trying to contact the admins of this group, and I've been told that "Oh, don't worry, nobody was making millions using your work" and "Don't worry, there were only a few magnet sells and the community doesn't do it anymore blah blah". As I tried to make them understand they have NO RIGHTS for using other deviants' works whatever the hell they want without giving the original artist credit I got told that " I do never erase the artist
10 Top Tips To Become A Better Artistby10 Top Tips To Become A Better Artist8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Tip 1: Learn the Importance of the Sketch
Sketching is one of those things that every artist MUST do and do often. Sketches don't have to be perfect, nor do you have to show them to anyone. They can be as rough or as scratchy as you like but the thing to keep in mind is it's readability. The purpose of a sketch is to quickly illustrate or develop an idea you have, to capture or study some form of reference so that it can be worked on at a latter date. Because of this, the sketch only needs to convey the right information to you and you alone (unless you are drawing an idea out for a client then the message needs to be crystal clear).
Tip 2: Draw, Draw and Draw Some More!
This is a similar tip to the first but what I mean by this is draw anything that comes to mind or visually interests you. Sketch on the bus, train, in bed and even on the toilet. Seriously! The
