More Escaflowne info (updated)I love this. I've learn more new things about Escaflowne during the last 5 days than in 15 years xDMore Escaflowne info (updated)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Escaflowne is my top 1 favourite series since 1997, but I'm extremely lazy about finding new info or reading about lore. But that's the same for all the fandoms I've joined in my life. Well, almost all (I actually read a lot about political and history context in Rurouni Kenshin in 1998~). This week I learnt about some of the lore and more things about the manga.
I have some amazing new links thanks to :iconsmcandy: and :iconrad1986: that I want to share!
First link is this website: http://rad-esca-artwork.bravehost.com/index.html by :iconrad1986:, that website is yours? Woah, that's impressive!! Forgive me if you mentioned in some post, I haven't seen it until now. WOW. Really O.O
:iconcryingrainbowsplz: Every Esca fan should enter that site, a LOT of info about the artbooks, dvds and lore ^^

Collaboration Project: Winter Kimonos (Completed)Collaboration Project: Winter Kimonos (Completed)3 months ago in Personal More Like This
January 4: It has come to my attention that people are unable to submit to the Collaboration Project folder. I'm assuming it's because the folder's submission settings have yet to be changed, but in the mean time, if you could please paste a link to the completed version of your character in the comments section of this journal as several others have, I would appreciate it. Once this issue is resolved, I'll post a journal and submit your pieces myself.
On a side note, we still have some characters who aren't taken. If you have some spare time, feel free to claim the some others. I want to have as many Vocaloids in this piece as possible.
December 31: We added a Collaboration Project folder you can submit to now! Check out the submissions, if you haven't already. They're looking fantastic~

~Utau Design Contest~EDIT: The deadline has been pushed forward due to financial reasons. This contest now ends on April 17th.~Utau Design Contest~1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Sorry for the inconvenience.
So I was messing with recording and going through old utau art of mine, and I figured I really wanted to bring a specific one back, but I suck at designing so yeah.
This is where I thought "But what if I made a contest to design her?"
And so here we are.
Basically, all you have to do is come up with a design for my utau, based on her voice.
Her samples can be found here:

We would love to hear feedback from people if they are using this! Have you entered something listed here? Have you won something? Are you actively using this? We want to ensure we are giving the community something worthwhile here- and please don't forget to add opportunities you find to the list too- the more people adding things, the better!
As writers, we always talk about “getting that piece published sometime” or “maybe submitting to a few places”, but how many of us actually eat our words and get on with it?
It was suggested that perhaps we could help nudge you guys by sharing with you the opportunities we know of. Personally, I'm not well explored, but what I do know is that the community is! Therefore this journal is a chance to share the opportunities you find.
How this is going to work?

Hey guys! Please don't kill me for this, but this year for Valentine's day, we decided to do something a little different. Now, feel free to slap me in the face if this bothers you, and you want things to go back to normal next year, but for this year we want to try this. Considering the short amount of time we had between the ending deadline of the Winter Contest and Valentine's day, we thought we might be pushing it a bit to try and squeeze in another contest (albeit a mini one) immedi
CONTEST WINNERS!Ah yes, this is the day! Thank you to all who entered, before I start I'd like to say... Er, type out a few words.CONTEST WINNERS!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Ya'll made these choices stupid hard to make. It took me these whole last two weeks to think about it. I narrowed it down and then had to judge again and again to narrow it down further. I did my best to judge on the emotional appeal/bond of the characters and the amount of effort the contestant put into their entry.
I know you've heard this before, and it may not mean something to you, but I'll say it because it means something to me. You're all winners to me. Seriously. The fact that you put effort into this and took time out of your life for this means a lot to me. Whether it be about the prizes or the characters or even me, you cared enough to enter. You cared enough to put forth effort and compete instead of sitting there and saying "It's too much effort" or "I won't win anyways, who cares?"
Y'all gonna go far. This may seem like something insignificant, but ju

Eng-Ita TUTORIAL: make simple Utau original songsENGLISH: Since I received some questions about how I made my original song ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lG93-gUXwc&feature=youtu.be ), I decided to write this tutorial. This method is very rough, but can be used by everybody.Eng-Ita TUTORIAL: make simple Utau original songs1 year ago in Personal More Like This
(Making this kind of songs will not make you a musician, it is just for fun and for starting to learn some music's elementary features.)
What do you need:
- Vocal Synthesis Tool UTAU and a bit more than a basical knowledge of it (I'm writing a full Utau tutorial on my DA group "World-of-Synthesis")
- Linux Multi Media Studio
(These are all free programs, if you own other ones like Vocaloid or FL Studio you can use them too)
Step 1: the vocal part
1) First of all, you have to write the lyrics of the song. Use your inspiration to find the first words and their melody.
Divide them in "stanza" and "chorus". Count the number of syllables of the lines, then write at least an other stanza and, if you want, an other chorus with the

her hands are bruised and bloody
contempt writ on each furl
strength to take the punishment
rise to push the curve
stretch straight out from the shoulder
strike back to pay the debt
impact all that's left to her
pain trade her only fact
rise again aflame she's burns
you never see it come
lose all that she has left of you
you're victim twenty-one.

Justin Bieber rantohhh Justin Bieber.......why...just why people? I still don't have the answer on why this kid is considered a musician or even recognized in society! Now as a person, Justin Bieber is probably a nice dude, but music wise, NO! Now some people are going to look at this, who call themselves, and I sadly quote "Beliebers" and probably hate me....boohoo. And some are going to look at this rant and agree!

Now you got to give Justin some credit, he's got the look.........*awkward silence*........I can't think of anything else. Oh wait how silly of me, I forgot to mention, he has his own perfume line! Is that talent?? No! It's just a scheme to rip off little girls! His fan base would have to be, probably around 11-16 at the most? That sucks automatically. If your fan base is only looking out towards ages like that and that's it, I don't think that makes you a good musician. Your music s

The Things Wrong with SocietyAs an 18 year old living in the L.A area of California in the United States surrounded by Hollywood and the media, I feel like I'm the only one here that is terrified with what society is doing to our health. I keep looking at magazines and all I see are photoshoped images, emphasis on being skinny, you have to have the best clothes and accessories to be happy, and you need to know how to make a man happy in order to find love.The Things Wrong with Society2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And for those who don't know me as well, I'm 5'1 and 149 pounds. I'm considered obese for my height. Every time I go to the doctor, I get this look from the nurses when they weigh me. This has been going on for the past few years now. Back when I was 14, I had wrecked my knee ballroom dancing and had to have surgery. I was always very petite and less that 120 pounds. After my surgery, I gained weight fast. I became overweight and unhealthy to where I was showing signs of having diabetes.

The theme will be Roses of Love.
This can be an arrangement of a bunch of roses with some MJ lyrics above, a comic/manga where you hand him a rose or even a poem, a story, a simply portrait or a photomanipulation. Main thing is, that is contains Michael and roses both.
You can work with songlines, quotes and stories as well. I´m sure you guys will bring up such amazing ideas!
I don´t want to make any rules on here, but for understanding I will list them all:
- traditional/digital Art
Please no mature content! We have some underage here and actually it won´t fit ...
So you just have six weeks to go. I will organize some voting for the participants at the end and
