~romanshoubu asks "Tell us about your process and how you come up with stories?"
Roman! Hello there!
Ah, well for Starfighter- I was a huge fan of the yaoi genre and I loved sci-fi, but with a few exceptions (such as Ai no Kusabi), I hadn't really seen the two merged
I came up with designs for the characters and tried to think of how I wanted their person

Before I met Shaun (`endling) I was pretty much on my own when it came to art, looking things up and reading tutorials etc. It's been really hard sometimes.
Nowadays, he's the person I talk to all the time, discussing art and stories and games and such. it's really important to me to have another opinion on my work, especially from someone

Interview with Slinkers
Welcome to ASKtheARTIST! Today we will be interviewing the artist behind a number of popular comics and Flash animations on deviantART, Slinkers.
Firstly, I want to begin by thanking you Slinkers for agreeing to do an interview with us at such a late hour.
*Unadzuki asks "Where do you get your ideas?"
Arrrgh a hard question to start with! Hard because I can't really explain where I get them. I'm assuming it's from day to day life, but I don't actually get the ideas until I sit down in front of my computer with a master plan to make an animation/comic. I sit there, decide what I feel like drawing... then I make the idea up as I go along. This doesn't always work, and I often waste hours on duff ideas. But then I get a good one and make it!

*Vellez asks "What is your creative process? Do you just research and then begin drawing when you get an assignment, or do you mull it over a bit?"
Hmm it usually starts with me getting the assignment since I spend my freetime drawing other things mostly (these days at least). As soon as I know what the client wants, I leave it alone for a couple of days and wait for ideas to sprout in my head. The rest is just craftsmanship, you know, drawing the stuff and everything. The real work is done as soon as I put down the thumbnail sketch.

The clock hand is loud,
He can only hear loud bangs instead of the repeated "tic-tic."
Guilt, he felt.
He held a knife, blood dripped from the tip, slowly.
A thick red puddle was formed beneath him.
All this blood, from one helpless body.
It lies in the corner,
Such a pretty face.
Don't break a maniac's heart.

As we were walking, I noticed that the atmosphere somewhat changed as if my dad seemed to be a bit of a villain or someone who wants to create chaos.Raising waters :Dream:4 months ago in Drama More Like This
As we were walking, he went in another direction but I just kept going forward. I ended up at a radioactive plant. I looked at it and it felt very unsafe just standing near it. I looked around for my dad when I saw him talking to construction workers as if he was their boss and was telling them to do some very dangerous work.
I walked off, away from the plant and I ended up in this city. I was just adventuring a bit before going back to my dad when I start meeting some new people. I start talking to them then before I know it, the city shrinks and turns into an island. I didn't mind it so much and neither did the people I met.
We were all running around on this new city/island. As we were

Pam came over to me in the isle I was in and asked me if I wanted a juice box. I told her no thanks and she put it on the shelf then left again.

of "A Trio of Darkness and Kiras" or "ATODAK" for short.
Plot: The series is known to be quiet the recreation of Nickelodeon's
"Invader Zim" series, as the episodes of the ATODAK series are usually
recreations of episodes of the I.Z. series (normally a link to the recreated
episode is put in the episodes). At first, the stories were written out in
script format (meaning they were not written EXACTLY like a story, but more of
a script/chatplay-like format (ex: "Kyonshi: *eat candy*"), but have been
changed into a more proper story format; plus, the series was meant to
originally be called "The Kira and Shinigammi trio" (with the trio being kira
and Kyonshi being shinigammi), but was later changed to "A Trio of Darkness and
Kiras" (referring to how Kyonshi are the element of darkness in "Kyukyoku No
Shi" and how the trio are now kira). The series is meant to represent the trio
of Shadow, Mello, and Rus

It was another slow night at the Casino's bar. Barely any tips...but no matter; Cherry didn't mind. Not tonight anyways. From the week before, she had about 50, maybe 60 dollars. And honestly; that was enough to supply herself for a week. For now at least. Sitting alone at the bar- Cherry yawned widely as she blinked her brown eyes. Glancing down at the glass set in front of her paws; she took a sip of the ice cold water- only to glance around with slight boredom.

As I tried to defend myself from my little dog, I saw my curtains closing all the way so barely any light would come in and that I couldn't see what I was up against. I woke up from my nightmare but was still in my dream.

A tragic tale of woe, I do serve to perpetrate.
Of two lovers, torn asunder, a young male's mistake,
A family shattered, and a war that we all partake.
A jealous heart does create a state of agony,
A deal was made to sooth his misery,
For in the mind of the eldest son,
A demonic force's work had just begun.
During excited chatter, deafening clatter,
The youth's innocence had ceased to matter,
For by shadowy claws, the dragon did grasp,
All of the misfortune that had yet to lapse.
The middle child, a maiden of heart and face so fair,
With her pure gown and golden hair,
Instead of being wed on the following Morn'day,
Carried to the church's grounds, the earthen bridal bed is were she does lay.
A day filled with songs of the purest amity,
Sullied by an unfortunate calamity,
The disastrous plot of one of heavy-heart,
A pawn in the strategy of a monstrous villain, of who's chaos

I frantically swerved my head over my shoulder, only to find the looming, 8-foot tall decaying beast slam down an ugly paw, claws outstretched towards me in a furious shriek. I gasped and returned my attention to the glare of the flames that had engulfed the once lush pine forest around us, my feet nearly tripping over a fallen branch. I fumbled for a moment before regaining my balance, my breath reduced to gasps for oxygen as the crackling sea stole the precious air in greed. I cringed as I scraped my left arm against a burning holly bush, my crimson hoodie snagged in the sharp clutch of the dying plant. I started pulling madly as I heard the disgusting demon squeal in delight as it glimpsed its prey--trapped upon the edge of a bush as it burned to ashes. I let out a scream, only to be cut off by the jeering crows above the burning treetops--crows who where undoubtedly eager to taste fresh meat, cooked medium rare inside of this earthen pit. I abando

She remembers tripping, falling, and hitting her head. Her red dress was ripped and torn. The large skirt was stained and somewhat unruffled. The girl looked around the area. An abundant amount of rose bushes surrounded her. Sitting nearby, a calico cat stared at the girl from a fallen tree. It stared at her with big, green eyes. The child bravely walked up to the strange cat and started stroking its fur.The Broken City P.11 month ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
