Josh's gallery is FILLED with Sci Fi works that both tug on your emotions and leave you pondering. If you aren't checking his work out already, get over there and give it a try! I promise you won't regret it!
What does it mean to be "creativelycliche"?
Haha! A great question. I think that most writers feel or understand that they aren’t writing about the things that haven’t written about before. My approach to writing, and the sort of philosophy I have been refining the past few yea

Writing Prizes Raffle! CLOSED/WINNERS ANNOUNCED!)FINAL THOUGHTS AND WINNERS:Writing Prizes Raffle! CLOSED/WINNERS ANNOUNCED!)4 months ago in Personal More Like This
First of all I just want to say a big thank you to those who participated in this raffle. Seeing that it was my first ever raffle I found it to be very enjoyable and fun to host - I had a total of 44 people who entered, which is so amazing! As for those who did answer the bonus question, I really liked all of your answers. What personally inspires me to become a better artist/writer is reading other people's literature and learning a technique ot two of them. Also friends/family/fans along with music inspires me to become the best person that I want to be.
Okay, so here are the winning numbers and the winners:
Please don't get discouraged for not winning my raffle - I appreciate you taking part. Anyway the next raffle will be held next mo

Important Site Update that Affects StockChanges to .zip file submissions that will affect youImportant Site Update that Affects Stock3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I know some of you might already be aware of the changes that have happened if you have sent in help desk tickets about it, however for those of you who aren't yet aware; there has been a statement issued here -
Effectively, password protected zip files are no longer accepted on the site.
Whilst it is a huge disappointment that password protected zip files are no longer accepted, I would rather this be the case than to allow a potential access area for somebody to try and infect your computer by submitting what might look like a genuine stock pack or .exe file, and despite this being an inconvenience and what feels like a step back, I'm sure you would all agree.
There are alternatives for submitting/sharing exclusive stock packs etc, including using your sta.sh for normal zip files as sta.sh is a private area, accessed only when you give out the sta.sh link of submitted - but unpub

You guys sent in some great ideas! It took us hours to decide which ones to choose. But in the end, we went with the most creative, abstract, and conceptual themes. Simpler themes would have lead to a hundred of the same drawing, but the words you all sent in are GIANT umbrellas to much smaller prompts.
For instance, many of you sent in ideas like nostalgia, time, memory, future, generations, etc. and momentous can cover all of that. Everyone wins with this theme.
Then we have Seasons, which was chosen based on popular demand.
Just for clarification,

College student Loki x college student readerIn readers POV~~~~College student Loki x college student reader2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was studying for this damn math test for college Algrebra. My grade was good but my mom wanted me to do well. I studied in the library like the good little girl who never picked up a cigarette, did drugs, or had sex ever in her life. I behaved like a saint. No boy ever came in breathing distance of me. So I was pretty sure I was safe.
"Loki I am thinking that we brothers should go to this place these mortals call a football game!" Thor rambled about nothing as usual. Does he not notice my facial expression, does my facial expression really show that I give any consideration to what he thinks or speaks about? I really wish this pathetic fool would go find someone else to harass. Maybe those blonde girls giggling and gossiping about some thing pathetic in their lives. I thought this was a school not a social gathering, or as the mortals call it a bar or a hangout??
No one seems to be taking their education seriously.

Problems with Stock ResourcesLock, Stock, and BarrelProblems with Stock Resources8 years ago in Personal More Like This
It unfortunately appears that it is once again time to talk about proper stock resources again. I'll be addressing this in this week's CEA Update but I wanted to discuss it a bit informally here first.
I have a hope that some day the issue of stock resources will get straightened out because it really is not as complicated or as confusing as many people are currently forcing it to be, but I guess the nature of the internet pushes people to simply pull the old smash and grab.
I'm going to run down a brief listing of the various problems and pit falls currently affecting the issue of stock resources in general.
The Old Switcheroo
Now we all know there are a good number of legitimate, legal stock resource sites out there with some being free and some being pay sites. A good chunk of you all can name them off the top of your head so I won't bother to list them myself.
Now regardless of which one we might be taking about, they all share pretty much a common ru

Sucker PunchedThis is a LONG one so settle in!Sucker Punched2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve been re-watching Sucker Punch a lot lately and have been humorously admiring how misunderstood it is. It’s almost comical how a movie that comes right out and says “I am about the negative connotations surrounding the constant sexual abuse and objectification that women endure,” gets reviewed and dismissed as “just another pandering male geek fantasy of objectified sexualized women.”
I could write a book on the various subtle metaphors and messages Sucker Punch visualizes, but I don’t wanna bore you all. But to demonstrate what I mean let’s just dissect a small piece of it.
Before we begin we need to understand two things. First, Director Zach Snyder made the film with the express intent of it being a feminist critique on geek culture. If you don’t believe me, hear it from his own words: http://www.filmschoolrejects.com/features/interview-zack-snyder-on-the-sexuality-and-world

Song from the other wallSo I've been living in my single room dorm for 2 years straight for college. There's a song coming the wall from the left side of my room from time to time, only in the bathroom actually.Song from the other wall3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's very well sang, like that of a professional singer, and it's a very old era song, like something from an opera.
I've always thought it is a very nice song, and didn't think too much of it.
But actually, no modern college student would sing a song like that, and it definitely doesn't sound like from a record machine.
I didn't give much thought about it since I'm surrounded by other college students.
But then, only now it came to me that the left side of my room is a locked room and noone lives in it.
I could hear the song so clearly it could only be coming from the left side of the wall.
Asked my neighbors around and noone even sings, not to mention the tenants change frequently in my dorm and I'm the only one who actually stay for 2 years in the same room.
I've been pretty blunt about this althou

Few words about art-thieves.Hi!Few words about art-thieves.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My dear watchers, I really appreciate your support when it comes to fight against art-thieves.
But I bet there are also many people whose thoughs can be interpretted like "why is she so hysterical about it?". Some people say, that the fact, that some photo is worth stealing, is a kind of compliment.
Ok, so let me present my point.
At first: why am I so unhappy about reposting of photos?
Because, pals, if somebody just reposts a photo without any change, it just gives totally open space to other people who would find the photos on his/her blog, taking it and posting it themselves. And because the first person did not credit the original author, they also do not credit the creator. The more people do that, the more times the photo is reposted. Always without credit. Sooner or later, it becomes a kind of "public" property and original author has almost no chance to effect this situation.
Do you know this photo? Honestly, EVERYBODY knows it. But do you know original author? Do you
