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.

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
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

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:

The extended cut of Mass Effect 3 did more than just add a slideshow (although there actually was one at one point). BioWare has given players a new ending as well. Shepard can now tell the star child to go to hell and refuse to make a decision.

Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect seriesThis is something I felt compelled to write;Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect series2 years ago in Personal More Like This
both as a gamer and the influences that helped shape me as a developer.
Almost a year from when I touched my last save file, I finally "finished" the Mass Effect series. I played all the DLC and I beat the game, one last time. It was a somber ending, because it put a final end to a character I have played since 2007. I have games that I love, games stretching back to my childhood, and games that I would consider myself to be a huge fan of. I can count on one hand though (and not using all my fingers), franchises that have sucked me in and crafted characters that made me care about them in such a way, that turns this 6'5 developer into your everyday excitable fan (not Justin Beiber level though, that'd be just plain crazy). The Mass Effect series is one of those few titles.
I have looked up to Bioware for many years. Combined with my love for Point & Click advent

Where do YOU want Mass Effect to go?Hello again, my readers, it is I once more. I couldn't have been more pleased to see that my fellow moderators were willing and able to keep you up to date with the most relevant of Mass Effect news while I've been sadly pulled away by Halo 4.Where do YOU want Mass Effect to go?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And by the way, fun fact; the bad guy in Halo 4 is voiced by the same guy as Harbinger. Go figure.
Now I'm not certain if this is still active, but Casey Hudson is taking a Twitter poll asking fans if they want ME4 to go forward or backward in the Mass Effect timeline.
Now don't kid yourself, the next Mass Effect game is a long ways away, all we know right now is that the protagonist will be radically different and the story will go somewhere entirely new.
So, what do you guys think? Oh, and if it pleased you, tweet your opinion with #MassEffect or just #ME and send out your thoughts.

New comic - Mass Effect 3: HomeworldsI know; it's not a title that ends with "tion." Shocking, truly!New comic - Mass Effect 3: Homeworlds3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are like a large portion of the Mass Effect fan base, your favorite character hasn't gotten a comic about them yet. Granted; very few characters have had a comic about them period. But Mass Effect: Homeworlds will be spreading the Dark Horse treatment to more of ME3's characters.
Now, depending on your opinion of the comics thus far, you may be thinking that being given the Dark Horse treatment isn't exactly the best thing. Well, there's not much I can do to assuage you in that regard.
If you've liked the Dark Horse comics so far, then here's a reason to be excited:
Mass Effect: Homeworlds will be a series of --from what I gather-- unconnected issues, with each of the four concentrating on a different member of the main cast in ME3, starting with James Vega.
Mass Effect: Homeworlds will be coming this April.
Yes, that is after Mass Effect 3 is released.
I'm rather excited for this. Back story is something I always
