Writer of the MonthWe are very proud of our novelists, poets, and, general authors here at Sacred-Literature so we're going to give everyone a chance to know more about them. How did they get their start in writing? What or who inspires them?Writer of the Month2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Because there is an interview involved, we ask that any who want to participate in our WotM program do so by noting below. Many pieces of your work are reviewed.
In five words, how would you describe yourself? Writer. Gamer. Geek. No, nerd. No, geek – it sounds cooler. Futurist. Wanderer.
Are you a professional author or an amateur author? Amateur. That isn’t to say that I wouldn’t love to make a little money at it one day; but I will keep writing no matter what.
How did you get your start in writing? In general? By reading. As I kid I preferred nothing more than to be left alone with my nose in a book, and I’ve continued to read voraciously as an adult. Science fiction, fantasy, mystery

Additionally, the following comment was provided:

"Explicit Pornography"?! Aw, jeez, guys. You must have the worst collection of porn on the planet to think that was explicit.
A 90s Rochelle Swanson outing was more explicit that that pic, and that stuff got aired, uncut, on terrestrial UK TV (god bless you Channel 5, you made the young Jack jolly).
I believe that, for something to be labelled "explicit", SOMETHING must be visibly going in SOMEWHERE. Such was not the case in the offending image,

..to play on an emulator, or PC and I happened to come across a REALLY old gem of a game called ____for dreamcast. I've played this game once before and I personally loved it. While I was browsing more about it, I stumbled across a video for the Japanese version of the game on youtube. This particular cinematic scene was changed for the American version.
During a specific cut-scene you are fighting against an older man who 'changes' into a tentacle like creature. Now, in the American version the tentacle comes out of the mans stomach. In the Japanese version, the tentacle comes out from his ass and proceeds to protrude between his legs, simulating a large tentacle like penis, in which he attacks you with (lolgottalovethemjapanese). This bothers me, why? Because the 'penis' like placement of the tentacle was symbolic and reflected back to events t

Cultural Appropriation 101This news article touches upon subjects that are sensitive to many people. Ordinarily, I try my best to avoid drama and online conflict, but I feel that this growing fashion trend needs to be addressed before it becomes the popular thing to do. It is my hope that through calm, rational discussion and input from users, we can start a dialogue that puts an end to ignorance and puts artists on the path towards creating beautiful works of art that do not unintentionally offend various groups of people.Cultural Appropriation 1013 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The issue I am speaking of is Cultural Appropriation.
I started noticing the beginning of this trend around last summer. Art and fashion seem to have taken a turn towards incorporating stereotypes of First Nations people, creating photoshoots, clothing and artwork featuring warbonnets, feathered headbands, eagles, dream catchers, moccasins and more. This fashion trend appropriates the culture of First Nations people, usually without consent, or thought for what is considered sacred. Often, p

He is investigating the matters and will have a reply to me by the weekend.

Tomorrow I will try to phone Phil Clampitt during his office hours.
No one has responded to my emails yet.
Also, edited to change "slander" to "libel". Sorry about that.

Summaries of K Anime1. 「Knight」Summaries of K Anime2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ashinaka Gakuen High School, is a high school where the whole island is the site for the school.
Isana Yashiro, also known as Shiro, had lunch with a kitten on the roof. After lunch, Shiro was asked by his classmate Kukuri (Yukizome Kukuri) to buy some stuff for the school festival, and he went across the bridge heading to the city.
However, for some reason, at there he was being chased by some vulgar guys instead..........
A young man who claims himself "Yatogami Kuroh" appeared before Shiro and used some mysterious martial art, appears to be rescuing Shiro who was in a pinch. However, again for some reason that Shiro didn't even do, he is also trying to kill Shiro. Shiro instantly runs away from him, but Yatogami Kuroh chases him all the way to the academy's dormitory.
On the other hand, the kitten which was in action together with Shiro suddenly changes into a beautiful girl and then...

What is SketchBomb?Hey everyone,What is SketchBomb?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a while since I've really taken a minute to explain SketchBomb for those who are unaware.
SketchBomb is a sketch group I started in March of 2010 in San Francisco. I was working as a freelance artist and craved face-to-face interaction with artists again. I posted where I'd be, and hoped people would show up. A small group of enthusiastic artists did and now we've been going for three years and have tons of attendees. We even have chapters in other parts of the country.
What do we do? We have themes that we all sketch towards, we share the sketches everyone does with the entire group, and we have a lot of fun. SketchBomb meets once a month, on a Saturday (announced ahead of time), at 8 PM. Anyone is welcome to attend. We have a very open environment and everyone's contributions are given equal time in the spotlight. I've been to other sketch groups that don't have such an open philosophy and it was a very important element for me to try and get right.

TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE...." I haven't reached the point where I think I'm good at this. that's the drive. i know that its in me to be really good at it. and i think i've come close a few times, but i don't usually look at things i've completed and feel content. Which that means the next thing you start, you go in with that attitude that 'this time, I'm gonna get it right.' it doesnt mean you hate everything you do, but i'm never content.

Art theft - my opinionI've had a increasing number of messages about art theft on DeviantArt recently. I think it's great that this community is concerned that artist's work is being used appropriately, and that individuals have the time and energy to draw attention to potentially contentious posts. I'd like to express my gratitude to those who have contacted me and hope that you will continue to do so if you feel it necessary.Art theft - my opinion3 years ago in Personal More Like This
However, I think it's important to get this stuff into perspective. Copying my work for practice isn't theft. It's extremely flattering for me and an entirely legitimate way to study. I copied other artist's work when I was starting out and I learned a great deal from those exercises. I'd suggest that there are many more accomplished artists than me whose work could be studied, but I have no problem with my work being used in this way.
My book, 'The Fantasy Artist's Figure Drawing Bible', specifically encourages this in fact. Anyone wanting to work from the line art provided in that
The Art Institutes are a scam!The goal of this group is to raise awareness of the fact that the heavily advertised "Art Institutes" are not real art schools, but corporate owned diploma mills that exploit young people’s dreams to sell fake education for ungodly amounts of money. I went briefly and dropped out after realizing my $120,000 ‘education’ was not going to get me a job anywhere or allow me entrance to a Grad school. Their over 40 locations are owned by the Education Management Corporation(EDMC) which is possibly the main villain in today’s corporate education scam. They have been sued many times, but are still in operation and growing. Now they have several other chains of schools other than the Art Institutes (Brown Mackie College, Southern University, Western State University, and Argosy University). In order to destroy them we must make sure everyone knows about this awful scheme so that they lose business and shut down on their own.The Art Institutes are a scam!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
