Stop the perfectionismOn my Tumblr site someone asked me for some general advice for an aspiring comic creator. This is what was on my mind. Thought I'd share it here on Deviantart as well.Stop the perfectionism3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Right now all I can think of is something I've been thinking about lately. And that is the depression some of us artists get about our art. Like our expectations aren't just "My drawings need to be good!", they are "My art needs to be PERFECT."
So I would suggest always try to improve, gain confidence, but expect good/average output. Don't expect perfect art, ever. By doing this only causes you to be frustrated, which in turn causes mistakes, which pisses you off more, then you're stuck in a lame spiraling circle downward to the pathetic whiny artist. Which in turn kills your deadline. Giving yourself freedom from perfection makes drawing much easier and better art is produced and on time.
I'm currently working on this piece where it started out difficult, I had high expectations for it, I was in a bad mood, nothing was

TOME Episode 04: "Fraggedquest" is released to Newgrounds, as well as the Traveler's Guide just for archival purposes. Thank you EVERYONE who helped put this episode together. I got wa too ambitious with it and it ended up being way longer than I expected, but I genuinely think it's our best one yet. Also, I apologize for any glitches in the animation and sound. I'm going to try and get the YouTube version completed next week and some of those issues will hopefully not be a problem anymore. Thanks for understanding and I hope you enjoyed the episode for what it is.
So people are probably immediately thinking, "when does Episode 05 come out?!" Well, the next step isn't that simple. Believe me, I'd LOVE to keep just making the episodes as I had originally planned and continue throu

2. Who is your favorite character? Why?
Carlisle, I suppose, because he was the only one who had a backstory I actually was interested in. Why couldn't this story have taken place 400 years ago, been about Dracula-type vampires, had no teenagers in it, and been a deep, physiological tale about young vampire-slayer Carlisle being bitten and trying to reconcile himself with his new 'cursed' existence and find his place in the world- all while trying not to be found out and murdered by the other vampire slayers? Huh? I would even have tolerated a romance- one that was intelligent and well-done.
3. Who is your least favorite character? Why?
Bella. Because listening to her thoughts makes me want to stick a fork in my arm. Or eyes. Or brain.

Myth: Respect Must be EarnedEveryone goes blind...Myth: Respect Must be Earned2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Yes, just like the age-old adage goes, "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind." Think about it: if you never give respect but expect to receive it, and every other person on the planet thinks the same thing, who is ever going to be respected? If your default setting is to treat me with disrespect or to simply ignore me until I impress you enough to take notice of me, you really aren't worth my time. And I would think that if someone treated you in the same way that they would not be worth your time either. Our default setting should always be to respect first. Even if you don't think all people deserve respect like I do, you still should understand that stating that YOU don't have to earn respect but everyone else does is HYPOCRITICAL and SELFISH.
Respect has no charge associated with it. There are no tricks that one must perform to get respect. It isn't magical. It isn't a fairy tale. It does not require a remote co
Why I love Donkey TF'sAs a kid, Pinocchio was one of my favorite movies. I remember watching it on VHS over and over and over again. Fortunately I was usually always alone when I watched it. I vividly remember being, ahem, aroused when Lampwick met his unfortunate fate on Pleasure Island. I didn't know why, but that scene has always fascinated me. I loved when his pants split as his tail grew, and I loved when his hands changed into Donkey Hooves. Finally he was forced onto all fours as he lost his human voice and ran braying around the room kicking furniture. As I got older, I would imagine myself in simiar scenes. These fantasies stuck pretty close to the Disney version, there were favorite lines that I would incorporate, like when the Coachman asks "And what might your name be?" or "So you can talk", or Lampwick's "Please you gotta help me". Of course the only thing that would have made Pleasure island better would have been if there had been sexy women there too so that idea was always in my scenarios.Why I love Donkey TF's4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Mayan Warrior Queen UnearthedIf you are familiar with the great warrior queens of history, then you are probably thinking of Boudicca of the Iceni, Zenobia of Syria, or Tomyris of the Scythians. Sadly, the New World civilizations are lesser-known to most people.Mayan Warrior Queen Unearthed2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am a total nerd for pre-Columbian civilization, and that's why I totally squee'd when I spotted this news article today about the discovery of the tomb of the ancient Mayan warrior queen, known as Lady K'abel.
Lady K'abel was queen of the city-state of El-Peru-Waka', from 672-692 AD. The Mayan civilization was not a singular kingdom, but a collection of independent city states. Lady K'abel was married to the king K'inich Balaam, and apparently held the title of military governor.
From Discovery.com News:
"Archaeologists in Guatemala say they have discovered the 7th-century tomb of Lady K'abel, one of the greatest queens of classic Maya civilization.
The most powerful person in Waka' during her life

How to help someone depressedWhat I hate about our apathetic and stressful and greedy world is how people are too cold to know how to help someone with their depression. I should know, since I suffer from depression.How to help someone depressed1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Professional headshrinks and psychologists and such can go kiss my ass when it comes to depression - they might be good for guide lines and such things... but to help someone with depression? Fat chance. And same goes for people on Youtube and such sharing their videos on how to "deal with depression". People think you should get instructions - like some sort of manual on how to deal with depression, and that it's this complicated mess you need to explain well-worded for a long-ass time.
It's not. It's just not. It's only "complicated" to people because we as said live in a apathetic world... a world where there's no room for empathy, love, compassion, and caring comfort. Nothing could make me realize this better than Justin Carmical's (JewWario's) last words he gave the world before passing away:

One of the questions I get a lot are "who do you buy ____ from?"
I always assumed that all sites were pretty equal,
but I recently have been, and still am, dealing with a dispute form a contact website,
they have broken their our rules but still refusing to refund the purchase,
and because of the way they worded the product paypal is refusing to step up.
I'm pretty burned,
and I know others have been screwed over,
or have had major problems from dealing with people online.
As well as people who have had amazing experiences.

On Making Engaging EroticaA bit ago I had a deviant interested in making her (or his) own erotica, but she (or he) was running into this issue: they wanted it to feel deep, to feel like it had substance. They were asking me about it, and I marked it as something I wanted to respond to, but thought it might be nice to respond to it in a journal entry.On Making Engaging Erotica4 months ago in Personal More Like This
A few things to consider when making your erotica:
1.) If you want a piece of erotica that has substance, it will follow much of the advice for writing in general. Things like...
A.) Make sure no one is exactly as they seem. People who are exactly what they show to the world... that's a rarity. And boring. You want to surprise people. You want to make the person who seemed trustworthy... dangerous. You want to make the person who seemed dangerous... show their compassion. That's interesting, and that will give your piece interest.

Today, I want to talk about Groups. I’m a member of so many groups and I always encourage my friends to join as many groups as they can, a group is always a great place to meet new artists and let everybody know what you do.
But, I’m sure that you guys notice every now and then that there is a group that is not active or it has been around for a long time and it has so few members, or a group that doesn’t respond to their members and so many other problems. There are so many groups people create them just for the sake of creating a group and they leave them just like that, with no activity at all.
