It's high time to wake up from our long winter slumber and since yesterday wasn't an ordinary day at all - but the birthday (according to the databooks - http://jesterry.deviantart.com/art/Narutoverse-Birthdays-277031276) of both adorable Yahiko & Konan of the Ame Trio, we're happy to inform you we're launching our second group contest featuring the adventures of our great Toad Sage Jiraiya in Amegakure, particularly his relationship and training with Ame Orphans - Yahiko, Konan and Nagato.
Jiraiya spent three years teaching and training Yahiko, Konan and Nagato. Remember, those weren't peaceful times - they were surrounded by war and its hardships.
What do you think Jiraiya might have felt, having left his home in Konoha, having abandoned his team in o
Fiction.How redundant is it pointing out these following statements?Fiction.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's no such thing as a gigantic mechanical robot fighting off alien monsters. There has never been a report of a man being bitten by a radioactive spider and becoming a hero. You can't summon a mini-tornado at your own beck-n-call, don't matter how much into the occult you are. The odds of a young male teenager having a harem of sexy girls at his every turn is nil. There aren't bipeds of animals that are supposed to be quadrupeds flying spaceships in the galaxy above us. You can't legally hunt and catch thousands of different animals and use them to protect you from other animals and people in a sports-like venue. You can't eat a flower and ignite fire from your hands.
I can go on and on... this journal is probably being expressed because of recent built-up distaste for people bullying others because of what they like when it comes to fiction.

dumb thought of the dayevery now and then i get these stupid ideas.dumb thought of the day3 years ago in Personal More Like This
so here is the latest one...if gravity affects time, meaning stronger the gravity, more time is affected. and if the presumption is true that strong enough gravity can stop time..within a black hole
black hole has the mass of the collapsed star.... so... just before big bang we had all the cosmos compressed in a singular point with immeasurable mass, right?
that would mean that it is a ... sort of a non state point... a non event since time is in effective stasis.. space and time compressed in a singular point.
so an event has to transpire that was superior to all those 4 dimensions....
above time and space...
either this proves there is a God... or...doctor who is actually real!!!!!
yeah.... my mind is silly like that XD
aand just a warning if you take any of this seriously.....wwwow....i... damn! XD

PuritanArt"Your deviation Sonic Screw(driver) was reported for Explicit Pornography. The report was reviewed by a member of the Staff and action was taken, deleting the deviation and marking the report as Resolved.PuritanArt2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Additionally, the following comment was provided:
A member of staff has reviewed this deviation and has determined that the theme itself, or one or more details present in the scene, has made the work unacceptable for submission here.
As such this deviation has been removed in accordance with our policies and should not be resubmitted."
"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,
On Commissions and What I Require of ClientsSo some things went down a couple months back, which resulted in me getting conned out of a good hundred bucks of work. I'm not particularly angry about it, because I have known for years that my trust in strangers over the Internet would inevitably bite me in the butt. As an artist who does not require payment up front and maintains a no-questions-asked refund policy (up to sending the high resolution files), I take a huge amount of risk on myself and must trust that my work will be respected enough to be compensated accordingly. Of course, the day was coming when this strategy of taking all the risk off the client would backfire, and lo it did.On Commissions and What I Require of Clients2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It came. It went.
While I'll be opening up the gates for more coloring commissions in a few days, I figured it would be best to give a heads up to my new clients so they know how the system works, and what they'll be needing.

SNIPPY: REMEMBERANCES OF THE PAST DAYOctober something, something.SNIPPY: REMEMBERANCES OF THE PAST DAY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today captain declared as "REMEMBERANCES OF THE PAST DAY".
The day begun with me getting smacked with a broken laptop and yells "YOU'VE GOT MAIL!".
I tried to protest that laptops weren't attacking people in the mornings back in the past. To this, Captain declared that in fact they didn't have to, because users were so addicted to reading their daily mail facts that every morning they woke up smacking their heads on their laptops.
Then my head was treated to a barrage of empty, metal SPAM cans with words "SPAM MAIL! DODGE THE SPAM! USE FILTERS!".
With these words, captain gave me two old tennis rackets. The tennis rackets had yellow duck-tape stickers on them with words "DELETE" and "BLOCK EMAIL ADDRESS".
The spam can attack didn't end there, Pilot's job for today was hiding behind building ruins and throwing the spam cans at me at random intervals with yells of "INCREASE YOUR GENITAL SIZE!", "RUSSIAN BRIDE LOVES YOU" and "I AM NIGERIAN PRINCE WITH 56 BILL

Next Year I might submit less © Characters from comics and video games. At which point, I still don't know, but I would like to focus more on more personnal things, where I would have not to justify everytime why I "didn't drew this character like that". Also I need to submit more personnal stuff for variety.
Well; the genre might not really change; it's just that it won't be so called fanart stuff.
I also need to soften a bit my subject. Sometimes it's a bit "borderline" with erotism. I have no problem with that; and I like to do that. But D.A is too exposed; my gallery really more viewed than before; and stuff are re-linked everywhere now (tumblr, FB) and sometimes people do that without really thinking if it's the right places to post some kind of pictures... so I (we) should think more about what we submit because of that.
Also I'm not saying I won't submit more erotic pics anymore; just that I might submit less.Or done in a sof
Are Cartoons now getting better than Animes?Ok Long time not write some journal and like the tittle says I thinks this will be a controversial one XD. I think you guys already known how I been complaining about the lack in now more than 4 years of GOOD animes and how Japanese animation is getting worse and worse everyday, the amazing style that once I love and can't stop watching almost any single series I get to my hands when it was REALLY DIFFICULT get a Anime series (damn you internet for make it so damn easily for kids today), today only you can hardly get a passable 2 or 3 episodes and then became boring and predictable, what is happens? is really Japanese masters loosing their mojo? Not like there is no songle series of anime to see, so far in this session the only serie catch my eye was Lupin the Third: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna (aww have to be a Legend ), and I was getting into Saint Seiya Omega when I saw the first 2 episodes I say...ok pass....then I saw the 3 episode...Really?....SAINTS...IN A SCHOOL....REALLY....REALLAre Cartoons now getting better than Animes?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anime: home of the arsehole.I can list a whole range of eastern-born cartoons that I think look absolutely gorgeous, and whose visual style I wish very much that I could emulate.Anime: home of the arsehole.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Only a handful of those, however, can I refer to as being "good". Or even "tolerable".
Having watched them for most of my life, going back to things like Mysterious Cities of Gold and the original Astro Boy, I can say with a certain degree of authority that: Japanese storytelling is a bit wank. Daring and dynamic visuals, sure. Crap narrative.
And it can't ALL be blamed on "bad translation".
There's a wide range of gripes to be had, but chief among them these days is that the major characters, those who one would assume you're to root for, across however many episodes the series consists of, are generally complete and utter dicks.
I'm currently wading through Gurren Lagann, a series which people have raved about for a while but which I'd not had the chance to watch until now (spoiler approaching, should you be in the same boat).
'For exposure' - a warning to artistsI ran into this Twitter page a few days ago.

People like this are usually trying to guilt-trip artists into taking on massive projects for no pay, claiming it'll be good advertisement or that they'll get paid once the project becomes a success. The truth is, the chances of getting picked up by a major studio are extremely small. The so-called free advertisement the artist may or may not end up getting is usually not worth the effort.
Just to give you a taste of the disrespect for an artist's time and energy that some people have, here's a choice quote:
"Need Animator-I have a story that's 4 seasons long, 10 episodes each. looking for maximum quality. No pay. I will warn that I am very picky"
Does this person even realize the amount of work that goes into animation? Depending on the

So I read an article last night on people who are mentally strong and the DO NOTS of being that person.
I took those notes, and listed them, including how I learned to overcome these obstacles. It's a long read, sorry, but I figured this year it's time to open up and share that knowledge that I was once taught by someone I consider my mentor, business partner and bestfriend, Stephan.
1. Don't waste time feeling sorry for yourself - I used to feel this way as a kid. I was a child of divorce, and used it as a crutch when I was younger. I hate a (mentally) abusive step-mom who would constantly take me down. I began to feel that maybe it was true, and I wasn't going to be the person I wanted to be.
You can't think that way. No one likes or enjoys a Debbie Downer. Someone who is constantly on the negative or pining for sympathy. I began to overcome these complications with art or writing. Using tha

I had received a job offer at Microsoft. I guess this could have been one of my first 'big time' jobs, so I was a little ecstatic. It felt like a slow build to get to this point, after numerous indie games and under the table freelance jobs, but finally it had come.
I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I
