WE, AS A FANDOM, WOULD NEVER ABANDON LEGEND OF KORRA!!!
Tell people to make sure to watch legend of Korra this Saturday. Because if it doesn't have big views this week, we'll be lowering the chance of getting a third season. As some of you may not know, the main reason we didn't get a new episode of legend of Korra last week is because Nick wanted to test how strong the fandom is. So after a two week break the views should go down. If this happens, Nick will take it as Korra not having a loyal enough audience, and they may not want to go for a third season. So we need to make sure this up coming episode gets a lot of views!
So please re-blog this to your journals to tell the whole Korra fandom on what needs to happen.
WE WANT A THIRD SEASON, THEREFORE WE WILL DO ANYTHING IN OUR POWER TO GET IT.
KORRA FANDOM, ASSEMBLE!
no need to re-blog this part!

Please keep in mind that ship bashing of any kind is not allowed here. Take that somewhere else because we won't stand for it and you'll just get into trouble.
Also Please keep in mind that although it is now official; we should always make sure that we keep things civil in both the shipping and Avatar community. We are all human beings, and I trust each and every one of you to discuss this topic civilly and respectfully with others.
Anyway, The posts below are from Michael DeMartino and Bryan. Both are creators of The Legend Of Korra. And have made the wonderful show we all enjoyed to the fullest before the end.

Copyright Abuse part 2Yes, style is an important part of being a Professional artist, But if you look around here on DA this isn't a very professional place.Copyright Abuse part 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Style comes from being inspired by others, sure some comes from nature and things around us but allot comes from things we enjoy in others work.
Sometimes peoples styles will end up looking similar or the same, based on what they enjoy, dose that make them a bad artist? No! they are still doing their own thing. Besides style never stays 100% the same, its always growing and changing.
If someone is interested in trying your "style", its because they like your work, copying a style is how we developed our own over time.
DA is mostly filled with Hobbies, kids, and freelancers. These people don't really have to worry about having a original style, because they are not pros and allot of commissioners like generic anyway.

What not to say when suggesting a DDAs CVs we get a tonne of suggestions for DDs, and with those come a variety of assertions as to why the piece should be featured as a DD. Some of these, particularly those that focus on things extrinsic to the art, really don't help get the art featured at all. In fact, sometimes the given reason can hinder the process instead. Here's a breakdown of the most common, unnecessary things we are told.What not to say when suggesting a DD10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
"The deviant worked really hard on this piece."
This is one of the most common extrinsic reasons I receive in DD suggestions, and the reason why it is so common is also the reason it is a bad one: it applies to just about everyone.
All artists who are even moderately serious about their work put a lot of time and effort into what they create. Those that seem to create difficult things with ease have put a lot of years of hard work into developing those skills. If we were to give DDs based on hard work, we'd have to DD almost every piece on the
Top 10 favorite animated ladies - 5!Starfire (koriand'r) From Teen Titans voiced by Hynden WalchTop 10 favorite animated ladies - 5!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There is nothing you could've done. There will always be people who say mean words because you are different. And sometimes their minds cannot be changed. But there are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. Those are the people whose words truly matter.
Keep in mind that I'm analyzing the Starfire from the 'Teen Titans' show, NOT the comic. I have no idea how comic!Starfire is.
Teen Titans was an extremely fun and quirky show. It had a great cast, an amazing villain and it took its audience seriously (while not shying away from funny moments). I really love all of the titans and I believe they all represent some kind of teenager. However, my favorite titan of all is the titan I related to the most which is the alien princess Starfire. At the first glance, Starfire was in danger of becoming many annoying tropes; a) The forced love interest, b) The ditzy girly girl

OC Pairings This is sort of a rant thing, idek.OC Pairings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just so you know, I have pairings of my own with my OCs, and I love them to bits :iconimseriousplz: so don't think I am dissing on the whole idea of pairings.
One of the reasons I hate romance in anime/manga and now RP groups is because well, 90% of the time, they are so terribly forced.
They lack any real development, and are just thrown on top of one another.
Seriously, they'll glance at one another, and it'll result in "instant rabu".
In RP groups............pairings...........nngh.
Pairings can be very troublesome. Once people force their characters together, they only deem their "partner" worthy of their attention, and it gets pretty freaking tiresome. If you are in a chat room, you have five or ten other people, take the freaking initiative to get to know them, or RP with them. To be honest, I think with pairings, you either ship em.........or grimace at their existence.
Most of the time.......
Advice for Commissioned ArtistsSince I started taking commissions, I've gotten a fair amount of notes and emails asking for advice on how to get into the commission world. I have typed up some information below for artists to consider if they are interested in taking on commissions.Advice for Commissioned Artists5 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are unsure on how much to charge for commissions, then I highly advise you take a look at other artists who are of equal skill to you and see what their commission prices are set at. Get a few examples and take the average for the safest bet. After setting your prices, ask a few friends to look your numbers over and see if they seem reasonable. If not, ask for advice on what would be more appropriate.
*** Note: It's also important to note the currency differences for other countries.
2.) Waiting Lists
Don't do them. At least, I highly advice you don't. Your waiting list could stretch over months and often times a commissioner would rather c

I was commissioned in January, on GaiaOnline, by the username Nyanperonya :iconnyanperonya:
Was requested to draw 2 of their characters. We made an agreement and the payment was transferred to my paypal on January 27th. I would usually deposit the funds to my bank and work on the request. I have sent 2 wips (work in progress) to them, a rough sketch and a wip that was 75% completed. Without a noticeable watermark to my omission.

Idiots. Idiots everywhere.
So apparently there is like this war between NejiHina and NejiTen shippers.
Apparently Nejiten lovers claim Nejihina lovers started on them, and Nejihinalovers claim Nejiten lovers started on them.
Both Nejiten and Nejihina shippers..........can you chill out and just ship your ship?
Neji is dead. Im over it....if he comes back.....AWESOME.
If he stays dead, meh. I mean, lets be realistic, if Neji was alive, I really do not think Kishimoto gives a shit about either NejiTen or NejiHina. In canon, Neji has no love interest. Tenten does not have a love interest. Hinata is interested in Naruto.
Both ships.......they are both, let us be honest here..... fan made. You can whine/argue all you want that they both had their "moments", but realistically, both ships......were lets be honest....unintentionally implied.

Top ten WORST Disney Sequels: 8!8) Pocahontas II: Journey to a new worldTop ten WORST Disney Sequels: 8!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once upon a time there was an animation company named Disney, that made our childhoods awesome. They reached their peak when their animated film 'Beauty and the Beast' became the first animated feature nominated for Best Picture in the Academy awards, and just when their luck couldn't be better they released 'The Lion King' which became one of the highest grossing animated pictures of all time. During this streak of awesome movies, Disney became overly ambitious and desired yet another Best Picture Oscar. Instead of perfecting the formula they were best at (fairy tales) they decided that they needed to be extra pretentious to snag that Best Picture Award, thus 'Pocahontas' was born. Now how can a company who is known to adapt fairytales going to adapt a real life story? By making it extremely historically inaccurate of course! Audiences were bored, critics were unimpressed and Pocahontas was shunned as the black sheep of the Disney Reness

Alright so despite the fact that I've bashed Disney constantly, I actually really love this company. Its the fact that I have such a passionate love for it is the reason why I'm so hard on it. They have the power of forming timeless childhood memories, and for the most part they gave us wonderful stories and morals. This is the company that made me want to be an animator, so I really couldn't choose ONE female character.
While I like many of their leading ladies, a lot of them are pretty repetitive in terms of their ambitions and personalities. Also, keep in mind that these are NOT the 'best female characters' Disney has to offer, just four of my favorites. In reality though, Megara is my absolute favorite while the other three are runner ups. However, I feel like I've constantly talked about Meg in previous art work so I want to talk about my other favorites to offer something new in this entry.

A letter directed at defenders of Molestia:
I don't mean to sound accusatory here; I understand that it's easy to fall into this line of thinking, of "Oh this is okay, I can laugh at this" because of how certain actions are portrayed in fiction.
I, myself, once upon a time, thought it was really funny when a girl "agressively flirted" with an unwilling boy (i.e. the Kanker Sisters of Ed, Edd, 'n' Eddy)... until I learned that females could sexually harrass males. And not only that, but many people will either ignore or laugh off real-life cases of female-on-male sexual abuse. Now I can't watch episodes of EEnE with the Kankers without feeling sick.

I've been encouraging my friends and younger schoolmates to get back drawing. It was HARD!! Really hard to get someone to get back to what they've stopped doing. I know they liked drawing and I saw talent within them, that's why I kept telling them to have fun with it.
AND THEN, someone had to ruin it with "Why are your line arts so messy?" "I don't like this, I don't like that" "The anatomy is too awkward" "What's wrong with his eyes" blah blah.
It discouraged them.
Okay, you may draw better than them, but that doesn't mean you can comment on the arts you don't like. Many times it can hurt the artists specially the beginners who had no courage in doing art. They might just stop it because they don't want to receive comments like that.

falling out recently. I will be having another

I want to apologize, again, for disappearing for a
period of time, and I know ALL of you are getting
frustrated over that habit of mine forever. I wasn't
really sure How to explain it but, there are times I

But getting AWAY from it all will just give me a

Top 10 favorite animated ladies - 8!8) Jessica Rabbit - from 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit'? voiced by Kathleeen TurnerTop 10 favorite animated ladies - 8!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
''I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.''
Speaking of toons in the business, here we have the sultry sex icon; Jessica Rabbit!
Jessica is one of the most popular cartoon characters out there for...um...specific reasons. However, once I saw her in the film I noticed something very special in this character especially concerning her relationship with her husband, Roger. To those who have not seen 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?', I suggest you to watch the movie before reading this post since there are spoilers.
I relate to Jessica in various ways as a woman, the first being in what we look in a partner. She says that the reason why she is with Roger is because he's funny and makes her laugh. No only that but if you observe closely, Roger is the only character in the whole movie who does not treat Jessica like a sex object and actually respects her.
''Jessica's my wife! It's absolutely impossible!
