Character Creation TutorialCharacter creation is one of the most enjoyable aspects of being an artist or writer. This is where creativity can truly thrive as a person's imagination shines at its brightest as they form an image of a character that they find special. No matter what kind of art interests a person, characters tend to bring the depth needed to hook the viewer is looking for so that they can focus on the visual or literary piece.Character Creation Tutorial6 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Anyone can create at least one character if they put their mind to it. This tutorial will assist you in setting up your own character(s) that you may enjoy for as long as you wish.
Why make a character?
As previously stated, a character serves high importance in creating a memorable piece of art. Of course, this is not always the case, but that varies depending on the genre that you, the artist or writer, specialize in. Character creation is also an effective way to keep the creative juices in the brain flowing as
Beyond BirthdayBeyond Birthday was the 2nd child taken in at Wammy's House, in an attempt to create a successor for L, and was the serial killer behind the Los Angeles BB Murder Case.Beyond Birthday7 years ago in Biography & Memoir More Like This
He did not appear in the manga, anime, or film series, but the BB Case was briefly alluded to in both manga and anime. He was born with Shinigami Eyes, which allowed him to see and know when exactly people around him would die, as well as knowing their full names. He uses this ability to pick his victims and kill them when they would have been destined to die. It is unknown how he could have possibly been born with the eyes, though Mello wonders if a Shinigami dropped its eyeballs to Earth (instead of a Death Note). Some say that Beyond Birthday is a cannibal, but this, is only a rumour. The novel did not say anything about him eating off his victims' remains. Though, this could be true, information has yet to be revealed. During the investigation of the Los Angeles BB Murder Cases with Naomi Misora, he is described to

Americans have been fighting for their civil rights since this country began. Over the years, the faces change but the heart of the matter is always the same: people deserve to be treated like people, and that is an axiom they are willing to fight for.
Last year, over fifty students participated in the Day of Silence. They gave up their voices for one day in reminder of students who did not get the choice to speak. They gave up their ability to fight back, to express themselves because invisibility is more painful than the attacks of any bully. They gave up their voi

The Journey of Pansexuality For Me
Alot of my life,anything that wasnt hetrosexual was wrong.
I struggled,wondering what I really was,while I was raised up around the opposite gender.Soon my doctor told me I devolved a gender identity disorder,which meant I would grow up with the mind of a boy,and the body of a girl..
I struggled with it a long time,constantly made fun of at school,constantly alone,I wasnt welcomed by boys because my body was a girl,I wasnt welcomed by girls because my mind was a boy.I was teased about being a hermaphrodite,yet oddly didnt mind..
When I found out about what it was,I would listen to them tease me,and then I smile,thinking at least I know what I am now.
Each day as I grew,homeschooled since 5th grade,I continued to force myself to love males only.I knew if I didnt,my father would literally harm me,and I would be shunned again.But the more I explored as I got older,I thought maybe I was bisexual,when I tested it,It di
AnorexiaAnorexia is more than a label, an image, or a physical state. It is a serious mental disorder that takes a vicious root in men and women all over the world. Anorexia, more properly known as anorexia nervosa, is a frequently misunderstood eating disorder. Many believe that it's merely a physical ailment that is easily reversed. Others have the misconception that anorexia is a simple choice of lifestyle for women, a lifestyle completely void of serious consequences or mental faults. The eating disorder is very much known within society but it is hardly understood.Anorexia3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Anorexia nervosa is characterized by biological, cognitive, and sociocultural factors. The most well recognized of these factors is probably sociocultural. Distorted imagery of what the ideal body should look like for both men and women is publicized in many developed countries. Magazines, films, television, and advertisements contribute largely to the cavalcade of pictures depicting unhealthy images of men and women. The argum

People tell us "be honest." Such a simple, but fragile thing.
Do you know it kills us, to reveal?
Speak the truth. Reveal your broken soul.
Shattered, and left.
We had to find the sun to set, upon us.
And maybe amidst all the screaming, we had it right.
Maybe. We share then our lost memories.
Words become statues. Walls that bind our fates.

May you fly along the soft winds

People walk away. Backs turned to us. So many times we see this. We know it.
Smile. But don't smile at me. Smile through me.
Let me be released inside the blood.
We cut. Moreso then once.
We've all tried to cover up. Perhaps it was instinct. Maybe luck.
But luck doesn't bleed. Luck doesn't have memories, or times we can remember.
We wished we could remember. The times when life was good.
When life wasn't running. When I wasn't running.
Though it's more my mind. If I'm speaking honestly.
Honesty. Honest. Be honest.
But it's hard..
It's not possible. Even should we wish it. We'll break down. And we'll yell. And shout.
Even though we don't want to. There's too much. Far too much.
My mind is always rushing.. That's why I've written so much lately. I just want to calm down.
Even though I hate that word. Maybe normal isn't normal. What is reality? What is life?
What assurances do we have that we're alive? Just

I too wished to fly. But I was alone.
Set inside a dark room, where my shadows made love to my bare body.
And I would take it. Because I had to.
Don't look down.
Watch your step. But don't frown..
I wished to see the light. That others had spoken of.
Even if that light was just a mirage. I wanted to hear the beating of my heart.
So that one day, someday you could see me.
Behind this flesh and bone. Beyond the screams and moans that followed.
You painted me. And I was your drawing board.
Your canvas. Your delight. So I ignored the red signs. The ones who told me not to.
That it was too difficult to bare a radiance.
It was then that I realized what freedom is.
To let go.
Let them see the flesh. But we are broken mirrors. Our hearts left shattered.

Painted on a wall, serving time for being beautiful.
What is beauty? Is it the way the ocean greets us, then retreats?
Is it scared? Heart's pulsing on pounding waves.
We reach for the stars, then pull back.
We're scared to make contact. What will happen?
So much pressure. To act like we're being a pretender.
Something beautiful. Like a story, written in gold and silver.
But we still shiver, while we shine.
We're wanting so much, but just begging the time to be out.
Crossing mountains, we flow into the circles.
Reaching for madness through IV's and silly dreams.
We create our own purpose, trapped like fireflies inside jars.
But the heart is not so easily fooled.
I love you. I love you too.
Repeat, and rewind to places that we both knew you.
Maybe I wanted to know you too.
Maybe, I should have said something, so I could be in your circle of friends..

Maybe it meant nothing.
Maybe it meant everything.
And maybe that's not even right.
Scars torn on naked skin. We kiss our wounds.
Reminding ourselves of the pain it takes to live.
I told you I love you as you walked away.
Torn and confused from the fight of the other day.
Maybe it meant nothing.
Maybe it meant everything.
Would you wait for me to say something?
Would you even care?
I love you.
Said from the one who hurt you.
Funny how those words can trap you.
Left you wondering if it was right.
He hurts you, then leaves you.
You're in love.
I loved you.
She was... She was nothing! Just a one night stand..
It was nothing!
I just.. Wanted you to notice me..
We've been distant lately. We don't talk.
Do you really love me?
Tell me I'm not just someone to fuck to pass the time.
Would you say it? Would you mean it?
Am I important to you?
Or is that an excuse to get in me again, like the last time?
I love you.
I whispered it on the sand.

1. Sane Wolf Fans: While technically not wolfaboos they deserve to be mentioned. They like wolves but don't take their interest in wolves to the extreme like wolfaboos. They may or may not support regulated wolf hunting. They are actually pretty cool people. It's kinda hard to find them on DA.
1.5 Wolf Artists: They draw really good wolf art. The anatomy is good and they aren't sparklewolves. They deserve to be praised.
2. The Underage Wolfaboos: They are a bunch of kids who made their way to DA. Most of the time they don't post any artwork. If they ever see someone posting a different viewpoint from them they use CAPS RAEG on them. They try to insult you, but instead of offending you they end up making you laugh.

It's cold and it's dark here.
You know the place.
You've been shadowing me for weeks now. I can feel the pulse of your heart beneath my footsteps.
It wasn't the attraction. Nor the attention. It was the high. You know the one.
The one that leaves you in the grass, your heart pounding from the hallucinations you experience..
Was I like that for you?
Did I give you a good high?
I hoped I did.
What is love?
Here I am. Here you are. Staring. At me. I, at you. Wandering the walls of your soul. Without a word, we simply exist.
But, still, I gave my heart to you that day.
They say I'm manic. They say I'm depressive. Like black ink, swirling down the page, reacting to the gravity of this cold world.
and so, I am the ink. The touch you fantasize about. The broken ink, crippled in the darkness. I wanted you. You wanted me. We both knew it.

I was not a mistake.
It’s strange to think that exactly half of my DNA comes from you, and yet we could pass each other on the street and not even recognize each other.
I’ve never really believed in searching for you, my biological family. I never asked my parents the heartbreaking questions that Hollywood makes small, blue-eyed orphans ask: “Why didn’t my real mother want me?” I’ve never believed in any of that, and I don’t expect that you’d want me to, anyway.
But if we ever did meet, what would we even say to each other? I don’t speak Chinese, and you probably don’t speak English. But, in case you’ve ever wondered about me, here’s a little about myself:

ObedienceDeuteronomy 10:12 - "And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you? He requires only that you fear the LORD your God, and live in a way that pleases Him, and love and serve Him with all your heart and soul."Obedience3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Anyone who loves God wants to obey Him. Obedience can be hard though sometimes, if we let our own desires get in the way. When we compromise obedience to our loving Father for something we really want or think that we need, it can lead to sin, pull us away from God, or make us miss out on something better that He has planned for us down the road.
Genesis 22 is a perfect example of radical obedience to God. Abraham was promised a son, and after years of disappointment, as well as adultery in order to get a son through one of Sarah's servants, Sarah finally gave birth to Isaac. He and Sarah must have been overjoyed to have this miracle happen to them, that they might have a son of their own after being told that Sarah could not bear children. And then God asked h

And I was grateful you'd choose me. Even if there was something better, or faster or hotter then me.
I'm not the best looking I'll admit. But my heart lies on the end of your pen. You're writing and designing on these mountains I've been climbing for years.
And it only takes a second to realize maybe I was wrong. I was young once.
Glancing at your pretty eyes. And your soft hands.
Just thinking to myself if I could ask you the question.
Do you like me? Maybe yes. Maybe no. But it's okay to cross the line every now and then.
It's okay to be honest, and bleed with your vulnerability.
Was it wrong for me to like you? Maybe so.
But that's okay when you're in love. Even if she'd never spare you a look.
Even if he'd ignore you. You're still the sand in the hourglass inside my hand.
