5 Things No One Seems To Know About FanfictionIt's been a while since I dared to broach the subject of fanfiction, but some recent discussions about its merits have driven me to the keyboard yet again. Maybe I'm just a natural curmudgeon, who gets her jollies stomping on other people's idea about art. Maybe it's the indignant fire in me being banked by phrases like "Do NOT redistribute, claim, copy, edit or use it in any way" on fanworks and people saying things like "That's someone's creative work, man!" in reference to said fanworks. Maybe it's because I fiercely believe that we don't need new excuses to lower ourselves to ever greater levels of mediocrity. Or maybe it's just because I like making fun of people whose best contribution in the creative sense is somebody else's far more successful idea.5 Things No One Seems To Know About Fanfiction2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Fanworks are derivative works. This is the big one. Holy crap, no one anywhere on the Internet seems to have any idea what the hell this means. First of all, fanfiction and fanart are not "creative works." Creative work i
FINALLY!Yes, announced today, for the first time since 2006 Star Fox fans will finally get the chance to pilot the Arwing in brand new video game. Currently there is very little known about the game so far, Miyamoto only had a small tech demo that he brought with him to E3 this year. But from what we do know, there will be a new helicopter vehicle and a new control scheme involving the Wii U gamepad. The game is also currently slated for a 2015 release.FINALLY!11 months ago in Personal More Like This

In Defense Of Making A Living Through ArtThere's a frustrating element I've noticed lately in regards to Art. "Art with a capital 'A'", as a friend of mine calls it. And I suppose this blog was triggered by the cancellation of the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fan game Fighting is Magic. The fandom lost its collective shit because Hasbro sent the developers a Cease and Desist letter. The entitlement was just amazing to watch, and even worse was the sheer ignorance. Some of it stupid, like "Technically, all fanworks are parodies, so it's not illegal!" and "Copyright laws are so stupid!" to cruel, like "They can just take their development overseas, then Hasbro can't stop them!"In Defense Of Making A Living Through Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was baffled by this. Because Hasbro had the right to protect their intellectual property.
See, I've been a freelance artist for a while now. And it's hard. It is so freaking hard, and part of the reason it's hard is because the default attitude of most people you deal with is, "We're not, like, going to pay you a lot. Or give you i

''Well'' General Pepper began '' It seems one of the members or the Cornarian fleet was infected so slightly that even biological scans could pic it up. He managed to make his way to Venom territory and has constructed a Aparoid factory. We call him The Reviver and he was highly ranked in the cornarian fleet''. This was disturbing. The Cornarians took pride in making sure their soldgers wher the best in the galaxy and even for Star Fox this would be a difficult mission.''How high are the defences aroud Venom?''

Why PoXTigress doesn't work.This is a journal telling why it doesn't work, and why people want it to work so hard.Why PoXTigress doesn't work.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here it is.
Po is chosen by Oogway after he drops out of the sky and is given the title of "Dragon Warrior". Tai Lung and Tigress were both being trained by Shifu at different points in time to become the "Dragon Warrior". Out of the sky drops a fat guy with no skills and zero work ethic (see legends of awesomeness) who comes in and takes the spot Tigress had been promised.
I have to wonder. If someone came to your job/school/etc and filled out an application for a job or position that you wanted. A position you had trained your entire life for and then they were just handed the position. Would you love this person? Would you want to help them? Would you want to kiss them?
No? Why not? This is what PoXTigress people believe should happen. You should love the person who stole your job/life/livelihood. Because he is the "Dragon Warrior" Po should also have Tigress as his personal arm candy! Why?
Some Random facts about Paul and Jay SycharYou know them, you love them, but how much do you know about my fursona and my alter-ego? Well, if you don't know much, then this will give you some interesting info. If you think you know a lot about them, this still might interest you.Some Random facts about Paul and Jay Sychar3 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Paul is the alter ego, while Jay is the fursona. I still refer to them both as fursonas for simplicity, however.
-Jay and Paul have been described as two sides of the same coin; the "coin" people refer to is their ancestor, Silver J. Sychar.
-Melvin Sychar, the estranged father of the two, has been known to talk about Paul but has never spoken a word about Jay. Nor has anyone, him included, said a word about who Jay's mother is.
-The realtionship between Paul and Jay is complex, somewhat adversarial, but they seem to get along easily enough. Despite this, they almost never speak about one another. The one thing they both have complete agreement upon is that their father is an asshole.
-Paul is actually the older of the two by four years. Contrary to p
Star Fox intriguing fact #3Most likely you've heard of the unreleased StarFox game, StarFox 2 on the SNES but did you know there is actually 2 more unreleased Star Fox games?Star Fox intriguing fact #32 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first of the two has no title and was seen only by special guests at E3. It was for virtual boy and was dropped because of the consoles complete failure.
The second, was going to be another GameCube entree and was called Star Fox arcade. The only thing that came from the game was a picture for advertisment. Other than that nothing more is know about it.
As an added fact, there is a game for the old Atari console called StarFox... Odd.
Star Fox intriguing facts #2 answer*drum roll* The answer to the question of earlier isssssss..... Hight 5'8". Weight 155.

Won't deactivate, but just won't be around anymoreAfter being here for 3 years and just idling around... I believe it is time to move on. Deviantart much like Secondlife has left me with a bad taste in my mouth, and disdain for the entire place. I've met maybe 2 interesting people here in my 3 years. But it's not enough to hold me here since it's just become tedious and a chore to even bother checking here anymore.

It's not that I think everyone on here is awful. There's a lot of good and talented people on here. But most people are fake, and trying to make themselves seem more important than they are. Which makes me just sick with the site. Then there are the people who just can't do art, and refuse to try, because art takes time. Well.. Anything worth doing takes time to do. That's what makes it work, and if you didn't struggle to get that good... What's the point? You wouldn't appreciate where you were if you were ju

1. You will have to reduce your story to one page. This is called the query letter, what you write when you try and land a legit agent or publisher. You basically say "Hey, this is what my story's about, how long it is, and why I chose you to look at it." It is, in my opinion, one of the most difficult things a writer will ever face. All your nuance, your subtle build-ups, your "yes, buts", and your "no, wait, there's more" all have to be condensed to three paragraphs or so. No query letter is really allowed to be longer than one page, because no one has tl;dr worse than a literary agents or his or her minions. Not only that, queries show off your writing style and what you value in terms of story. A good query gets somebody t
Gun control and Sandy HookIve stayed quiet about this long enough. Does anyone else not see this as an excuse to get draconian laws passed limiting guns...gee...just like what happened after 911 and the patriot act? In politics, you never let a tragedy go for use in your own agenda.Gun control and Sandy Hook2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so they want to have stronger background checks and limit magazine sizes. How precisely does that stop someone bent on mass killing? The shooter at Sandy Hook was denied a gun so he took his mothers guns. The system worked but yet he still got hold of 5 guns. 4 handguns, used in the school, and one AR15 that was inside the vehicle he drove to the school.
Did you read that correctly? The AR15 was NEVER used. The 4 shotguns probably had 10 clip magazines, maybe less, maybe 6. Why is this important? Because it is all the rage to get this "military style assault rifle" off the street. This coming from the same organization that gave guns to the Mexican drug cartel under "Fast and Furious". These same guns where used to kill border

So everyone I talk to seems to be on the 'Lord Shen is an evil mother f**k and does not deserve redemption because hes a sick son of a bitch' band wagon.
A stance I firmly agree on, In fact I will go even farther and say he should be punished! Death is too kind, he should be strapped down, whipped and told he is a bad boy! ... ohh I mean
If anyone wants to join the Torture Shen wagon their is plenty of space, got the wagon a new paint job and everything. If not I will just sit alone in the corner I guess, if only more people were as sick and deprived as me!
This has nothing to do with anything, Moving on!
Although people agree Shen should not come back people are oddly very forgiving of his military leader Boss Wolf, This is where I differ from a lot of people, They want him to be in more movies, they want him to become a good guy and get redemption, But why? If Shen could never get redemption why does Boss W

Wake up - Eat - Work on pictures/Play video games - go to work - go home - go to bed. Repeat ad infinitum.
Despite the revamp to my art style, drawing has lost its luster over the years. I am bereft of inspiration and have devolved to drawing the same old shit over and over. (eg: furry pr0nz). I have tried to keep my interest by working on side projects over the years (eg: Youtube poop, SMBZ) but those lost their appeal as well. I either need to take things in a new direction to rekindle my interest or I should pack up and leave altogether.
Video games have lost their appeal too. Despite my loyalty, Nintendo keep on rehashing the same old stuff. You've played one Mario game
