You are a bad personMaking mistakes or bad decisions does not make you a bad person. A bad person is someone who do them but never owns up to them.You are a bad person1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We all make mistakes, we all make bad decisions, whether because of our emotions or our situations. Everyone has problems, and nobody's perfect. We all got things to learn and we learn them all differently.
But you never owned up to what you did. You never gave your due apologies.
You keep giving excuses like "I didn't know better", "I wasn't feeling well" or even "it wasn't that bad".
You keep turning the tables by justifying your deed as a form of "punishment", a "lesson", a "necessity" or because you "had no choice".
You only pity yourself by expressing self loathe and self regret. You speak so greatly about the pain and disappointment you feel, yet you fail to share that felt by the others because of your deed.
You half-ass your responsibility to redeem yourself from this by doing unrelated good deeds and sending materialisti

Have you ever been inspired, and I mean truly?
I know a lot of times we forget that deep feeling that comes up when we watch see or hear something truly wonderful, the thing that touches our hearts in the most tender way.
For me it's whenever I hear the song, "Brothers" which I know a lot of people might have said before, but for me there's just no taking that magic away from it, no matter how many times you hear it or have heard people talk about it.
I think in that way a lot of the Anime we watch is not just because it's fun and inviting, or that it's unique and interesting. A lot of why we love Anime is for those subtle emotions that come along with it, that's a lot of what makes Fullmetal Alchemist stand out, all those tender moments that really strike a cord with us and inspire us to create.
It's not just that Series but in a lot of other ones in the genera, Dragon Ball Z is intimidating but will surprise you. The joy of fiction and imagination is it flows so

People people people peopleToo many people misuse terms like anxiety disorder, panic attacks, OCD, and phobias, it's starting to tick me off. Everybody feels an amount of fear and discomfort doing certain tasks, everybody performs odd rituals or behaviors at some point, yet these people use it so casually, such that I nor others cannot take these seriously anymore; I cannot distinguish which one's are serious and which one's are from whining.People people people people1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much call bullsh** on "phobias" people claim to have on random things these days. Most of them are not even clinical phobias, and as far I understand things like "phobias of telephones" is seriously a symptom to a much bigger problem, like social anxiety. I am incredibly afraid of making/taking phone calls, it causes me to lose half my day and endless coldsweat, but I highly doubt I have a phobia of it. Labeling it just feels like an excuse to not deal with and further investigate your issue, and i

So...You Want To Be A (cosplay) Photographer?Ladies and Gentlemen, due to an overwhelming response of "Yes" on one of my latest polls (I think it was something like 35-3 in favor), I'm going to write this journal about my experiences when it comes to photography, and, in all honesty, a majority of it will be aimed at cosplay photography given that that is what I have done the most of since I decided to get a bit more serious about photography. I also feel like it is very important to say that I'm not at all, in any way, saying that this is the "right" way of doing things. What I write about in this journal, and what I say are my own opinions, formed from 4 years and multiple conventions/outside shoots worth of experience. You all are more than welcome to agree or disagree with me, and I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments section, as well as ask me any questions you might have (PLEASE keep it respectful, folks).So...You Want To Be A (cosplay) Photographer?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I don't know why, but since AC3 we got an increase of trolls, even on sites like DeviantArt, and it will poison our community for sure, if it's not already the case with the "racist" accusations RBF had to deal with some months ago.
We all have our opinions on costumes, especially when you love a character, but here, creating an account to directly provoke someone is a serious matter (like short, skinny and other shit like this on youtube/fb in my case).

All art, no payI just had a discussion with an aspiring writer and manga artist at the convention last week. He told me he has good ideas for a story he's writing, but as he's terrible at drawing, he needed a manga artists to draw the actual manga for him. As he seemed to be pretty serious about it, he tried already to make contact with several artists. But as he doesn't earn money (because... hey... there's no manga yet) he didn't actually pay an artist for the work. As a result, most of the artist gave up after a few pages. Either that, or the art quality was (in his eyes) not good enough.All art, no pay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As a teacher for the mangaschool organisation, I see a lot of this kind of people. More than I'd like to, actually. This guy was a case book example of the young, aspiring, wannabe manga writer that doesn't understand that you have to invest in something, before you can actually get something from it. Especially when it comes to art.
He kept on ranting about how people didn't draw stuff for them, or how the
Using techniques... digital & trad. mediumTechniques...Using techniques... digital & trad. medium3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm wondering what kind of technique are people using while they draw traditional and digital media... for example: If they draw traditional on the same way as digital (painting, coloring, shading...)...or opposite. Because for me digital and traditional are the same. It was always annoying when teachers in school told me that digital is much easier than traditional...that in digital you just press once with the brush and you already have whole image. Hahaha... that's noooooooot true at all I spend more time drawing digital works than traditional... Then I always say to people like that...Try and see for yourself if it's easier than traditional
Well, what I want to say...and ask. Last years I drew more digital drawings than traditional, so when I started to paint canvas, I drew on the same way as if it would be digital painting...only that I had one layer If you saw my digital tutorials... at first I did basic colors, t
Feminism, etc. vs. Roosterteeth(If I don't have all of my facts straight, then please notify me so that I can change this journal entry. Thank you.)Feminism, etc. vs. Roosterteeth2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so you guys know that the guys in RT make a lot of jokes. They make a lot of offensive jokes to be honest: jokes about rape, self-harm, disorders, etc.
These jokes are not okay. I do not care about how famous RoosterTeeth is. Fame does not excuse any of those things.
Whenever Ray says "Wow, that's so retarded," that is not okay.
Whenever Geoff says "Go kill yourself," that is also not okay.
Do not try to defend them and say that they've never said these things as I have heard them with my own two ears. And it pisses me off.
And this so called game that Gavin and Geoff were playing, "Connect the Hots", is not okay. It is not okay to objectify women. It is not okay to harass women. Following a woman around in a car in the early ours of the morning is terrifying for said woman. She does not know who these people could be; they co
