Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex MachinaOK, I think I've calmed down enough to write a review now. Spoilers ahead!Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex Machina3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, let's start off with what worked in the season finale. The animation was just...incredible, the action was exciting and sweeping in its scale, and Zuko's voice was reincarnated as General Iroh the goddamn determinator! which was actually kinda distracting, cause I kept expecting him to be like "I AM SO GOOD AT BEING GOOD!!. Hiroshi Sato showed his true colors as a hate-filled douchenozzle, and Asami showcased her usual class and determination when faced with truly shitty circumstances (on a side note, I've always had a hard time believing that Mr. Sato invented all those airplanes and mechas and stuff, because honestly, when we met him he kinda gave off a Henry Ford vibe, not an "engineering genius" vibe like that crazy eyebrow dude from A:TLA. But whatever, that's a minor point). And of course Naga was a badass...and according to tumblr, there are now people who ship Bolin x Naga. Just...why.

What kind of contest is this, then? It's the kind where I shamelessly bribe you to draw my OCs in exchange for swag! But before we get to the delicious bait of my artistic trap, let's have a look at the rules and characters...
(je peux uploade une version francophone pour le concours si tu ne comprends pas cette version. Envoyez-moi une note).
Your entry must include one or more of Acaciathorn's OCs (more details just below).
You can use any art medium - digital, traditional, sculpture, photo manipulation, 3-D render, whatever - as long as it follows rule number one. You cannot, however, submit poetry or prose. Sorry!
You can enter as many times as you want in as many categories as you want. just don't hurt yourself
Follow basic Deviantart etiquette: no art theft or traces, please!
Calm Yo Tits!All right, there’s much buzz on tumblr and on here concerning the new pictures of Asami and Mako together, and it’s about time we have a proper venue to discuss our FEELS rather than crowd the profile page.Calm Yo Tits!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First thing we want to say is this:
Everything’s five by five, people. We all knew there’d be a love triangle and these pictures do not suggest end-game or even a relationship for that matter. And even if that’s the case, people need not resort to abandoning ship or throwing hate at Asami and the Masami ship. We here at Makorra do not endorse slander or shipping wars. PERIOD.
Keeping that in mind, everyone feel free to share your thoughts on love triangles or talk about how smoking hot Asami is or how cute Mako looks while blushing or how much we want Korra and Asami to be besties or how awesome Bolin is, just ’cause or gush about how much you love Makorra 5ever and always. ^__^
Stay classy, Makorrians. <3

We all had our suspicions about Tarrlok. But did you suspect his “special” bending? Is he the son of Yakone? Is he in cahoots with Amon?
How awesome was Asami? And what do you think she’ll do now that Ikki tipped her onto Korra’s feelings for Mako?
Who else is lovin’ these Airbender kids? And who else feels like Bolin reverts into even more of a child when around them?
Are the krew gonna save Korra? But who’s gonna save the krew? Tenzin to the rescue? Tahno to the rescue? Trololol! Also, anyone else feel like Waterbending should be nerfed? Just sayin’.

Lighting and Texturing
The light seems to come from everywhere at once
In many 3D packages, under the lighting toolset, there is a button called "Ambient Light". Every time you use this light, a little part of you dies inside. There is no example in the real world of anything that is lit from all sides at once. This is a cheap trick that used to be used back before lighting was accessible and able to be used realistically, and looks something like this:

Policy StatementThis is ridiculous to me, but I guess to be 100% fair to all who visit this page, I ought to post this statement up front:Policy Statement4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have made it clear from the outset that I am simply not interested in arguing with people with opposing views over the internet. To disregard that request is, in my view, trollish behavior. "Discussion" is a waste of my time. Every minute I spend "arguing" with someone (who has not arguments, but rather, beliefs) is a minute spent away from poastering, sending emails, making phone calls, trying to raise a little money, and other useful things to advance Occupy/Anon/anti-SOPA, and other progressive movements.
If someone wants to discuss on this page how to advance the goals of Occupy, Anon, anti-SOPA, pro-women, 'green,' etc., or, how to make these poasters more effective (including suggestions and requests), they will be welcomed and their comments will receive a courteous reply.

How to make your art better overnight!You art is automatically better if:How to make your art better overnight!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
a) Your characters are actually doing things or interacting instead of just standing there. Seriously. Make them argue. Have them be throwing thngs at each other. Draw your character sleeping or eating or fighting or bothering each other or cuddling or SOMETHING.
b) It's funny. People like to laugh. That doesn't mean EVERY piece has to be funny. But humor can really add a lot to your work, and a great sense of humor can make your work great even if your drawings suck.
c) People care about the characters in question. This is why people favorite shitty fanart and not beautifully rendered drawings of your ocs. It's not because people don't care about original characters! But if you don't give them a reason to care about them, then of course they won't care. Duh. So make them care. Draw a series of mini-comics. Or a webcomic. Make a beautiful, funny ref with lots of personality. Draw them in ways that show off their amazing personal

When recently asked how his political candidate would explain certain positions taken during the
nomination process with contrary positions to be taken during the general election, the campaign chief
replied that stated political positions were “like an Etch A Sketch,”—meaning they could simply be
flipped over, erased and begun over from scratch.
Were it that adult life were as simple as a happy Etch A Sketch memory from childhood.
(The campaign chief took heavy heat for his flippant, if truthful, statement.) The incident made
me wonder how many of us had early experiences as “sketch artists” with that incredible red toy that
has become almost standard issue for so many children still to this day.

"Arthur? Where.. Where are we?" Your voice was small and wavering. You finally sat up holding your head. You heard Arthur shuffle behind you to support you. You carefully leaned against his broad chest and he sighed.
"We seem to be in your dream world. They aren't the best places." You looked back at him.
"Dream world? So, am I dreaming?" You looked around you to see large green hedges in one area. Mountains were carefully ridged and set in the back, leaving it an eerie feeling. You didn't like it here already. Arthur chuckled as you tried to stand, wavering from being unconscious for so long.
