Toriyama Interview (Saikyo Jump)Kanzenshuu has the full translation of the new Toriyama interview up. Some fun tidbits in there, some contradictory to previous information too: http://www.kanzenshuu.com/translations/episode-bardock-akira-toriyama-super-qa/Toriyama Interview (Saikyo Jump)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you know, Akira Toriyama-sensei, the father of Dragon Ball, oversaw the manga in this volume, and so naturally, he answered the questions of Naho Ooishi-sensei, who is also a super-fan of Dragon Ball!! Don’t miss it!
How was the character of Bardock born? (I heard he was born from the TV special, “A Lonely Final Battle”, but…) Also, what sort of attachment do you have to the character Bardock?
Yes, Bardock certainly was born from the anime. However, I don’t remember the particulars of how it went at that time. As for his design, I think I probably just gave some editorial supervision to what was suggested to me by [people from] the anime side of things. I don’t r

Heroes JM3 Incoming (Female SS3s)JM3 information is starting to surface for Dragon Ball Heroes. As expected, the Avatars are getting new clothes as part of their second "Class-up" (and transformations for the Saiyans). This upcoming set will be a landmark moment for the franchise, holding the special revelation that is the first official Super Saiyan 3 female design. other than that, the other characters are getting new outfits that I'll need to work in as well, and meaning another transformation for the Raiokutian (Freeza Clan) characters in my project too.Heroes JM3 Incoming (Female SS3s)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Final note, there is another silhouette below the new avatar designs. Not exactly sure who this is, but the text claims them to be a boss character. The design looks very similar to Liu Xing Long's Otohime form, but she was already utilized in JM1. So, I'm not exactly sure what is going on. Maybe she's getting a new form? Maybe it's a new character? Have to wait and see.

GoodByeNot being heard,GoodBye2 years ago in Personal More Like This
when I never said anything,
For I cut off my tongue
I said so much,
and I got none.
Comments or questions,
A simple hello,
Instead it was a silent scream
I don't care,
Breath someone Else's air
Sing another song,
Don't be here,
We don't care.
I'm not entertainment,
No, this feels like torment,
A bitter sweet plate
An winged lover tasting a devils game
My life is well, but it is not,
For I starve in places
When I am full in some,
Now, I will cut them off,
Like a infected limb,
I am numb,
I have been starved,
Mentally, and physically,
But no soul came to stitch my wound
To carry me to mercy,
So This isn't a goodbye from you,
This is from me,
My death wouldn't make a bird fly
Nor would it make the songs play
And it would not step into your brain,
You would not cry,
Life would be so much as it is now,
I get so far into these word games,
so I suppose I will end it here,
But hear me, I will bleed,
Until I die, and fade from your life.
I will not heal our grasp,

Figured it was time to switch to a new journal...
While it isn't the proper announcement of the Class-up yet, but it is clean artwork from the website. For the Saiyans at least. Still kinda hard to see the other races on the card.
Couple of notes:
Beat still has an off looking face, but not as bad as before. He lacks pupils in the eyes. Guess this inconsistency will continue forever.Note seems to have less eyebrow definition than I originally thought. She doesn't have pupils in this artwork either.Kabra is blocked even worse than before...Tsumuri doesn't show anything new...Nimu...seems to have facial hair? I thought the avatars were supposed to be younger than that. Kinda strange... Hoping it's a smudge.Froze looks kinda cool, but I'm not sure how much I like the black and white armor combined. Maybe just one or the other? Full body would be nice.

Sherlock is enough John, but thanks? - SH
Stop looking my way. -JW
Your brother will eventually notice. -JW
Oh come on, John. Mycroft doesn’t care - SH
John gave an exasperated sigh as he looked up from his phone to Sherlock who was smirking across him. John realised that Sherlock was toying with him to amuse himself.
Sherlock grinned happy and smiled at John, before he looked down on his phone. Mycroft was talking about something while a few other people were listening to his words. Sherlock was bored.
All he cares about is that cupcake he had sneaked into his room without Anthea noticing it. we could have sex on his desk and he wouldn’t even look at us - SH
WE WILL DEFINITELY NOT! - JW
John mentally groaned as he felt himself harden. The problem was that Sherlock obviously noticed.
Sherlock laughed silently. He licked over his lips and shot a glance over to mycroft.

"Nobody tells this to people who are beginners. I wish someone had told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple of years you make stuff, it's just not that good. It's trying to be good, it has potential, but it's not. But your taste, that thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase; they quit.
Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn't have that special thing we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know that it's normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you finish one piece. It's only by going through a volume of wo

Strength and Discipline
When “strength” is the topic, do you think of physical or machine power—or of will power and determination to achieve the goals of your cause?
Relative to size, no human being has ever been as powerful as a common ant. And one person’s life ambition is often another person’s conception of total madness. Context and perspective is everything — as you’ll find illustrated by perusing the following gallery of image
DECIDED: Glowing Pony Shirts****************DECIDED: Glowing Pony Shirts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you all for your awesome feedback on the shirt concepts! #2 was by far the favourite, and I think I can please almost everyone by submitting that design to welovefine.
...Which I just did! I've touched up the design a bit to make it ready for printing. I also changed the background effect slightly to show off Rainbow's colours better. Don't worry though, it's still the same design, just with the colour layout of the background a bit better!
Now it's up to welovefine to get permission from Hasbro, and to decide if they actually want to print this design. This can take anywhere up to 20 working days, although I hope it will go a bit faster, MLP being their ever-trending category. If they do decide to go on with this design, it shouldn't take too long to actually get it for sale.
I'll write another journal when their decision is made and when it's (hopefully) for sale, so stick with me for now!

I was tagged by :iconzenturtle651692: to answer these questions.
1. You have the opportunity to have a nice meal with one famous person, perhaps it's an actor, a singer, voice talent, artist? Dead or alive, it doesn't matter, who would it be?
There are many amazing people I'd want to meet! My first choice would be Ray Bradbury. It would be astounding to hear him speak to me (from the grave, sadly... rest in peace). He inspires me constantly, and it would be such an honor to learn more about him and listen to the man behind the creativity.
Then would be Johnny Depp, Tom Hiddleston, Joss Whedon, Benedict Cumberbatch, ect. There are plenty of talented people I respect.
2. Which Disney Princess's dress do you like either in style or color? Honestly, I can't say I am enthralled with any of their dresses. I do quite like Mulan's attire, though. It is beautiful, delicate, and elegant. I also like Esmeralda's character design (and I'm p
