NOTICE TO ALL WRITERS
I am starting a writers blog (date set for it to begin is 1 July 2013) I know some of you will have heard about it from me before. Now I am scheduling time to get it started. The blog will have all my tutorials, including a load of others, drop in features for people who want some help with particular scenes they have written, notes on preparing manuscripts, competitions and much more.
If you are interested in this, please can you drop me a note with your email that way I can send a blanket email to everyone with the link when it's up and running. I've had so much interest shown, it's hard to keep track of who wants to know about it!

Just throwing this out there...I'm going to ask all of the kiddies out there who watch me to put down the RP card, get their hands out of their pants, and read what I'm about to type.Just throwing this out there...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There are very few things that tick me off. Normally, I don't get angry, or yell, or scream. But, there are times when some of you (not ALL of you) drive me to the point where I want to delete my gallery, shut down all my social media info, and throw my computer into a garbage truck. So let's get some of this shit sorted before I do that.
1. Stop role-playing. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I don't care that your character is a 9th level super saiyan keyblade user with a sailor scout sister who is totally immune to all forms of mind control. If it looks like a bad tracing, Sonic recolor, or artwork that you flood-filled in MS Paint, I'm not going to care. I don't reply to role-play comments, nor will I. So either leave a comment I WILL notice, or just don't comment at all. (For the record, comments I notice are kind words

RIPOne of my best online friends, rovdjuur, has taken her life today.RIP1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's so awful that people had driven her so over the edge that she'd take her life at such a young age. She had so much to live for.
I also have a feeling the same people that drove her over the edge (since we've discussed these people before, when she was still alive) were the same people I had all of the drama with over my April Fools joke and things that happened in the past.
Why would people do this. Why would people hurt someone so fucking much that the person would take their own life. How do these people not feel ashamed...
I love you, Cat, and you will be missed.
Rest in Peace
Welcome to PKMNation!At the southern tip of every region sits a dock where trainers, breeders, and contest connoisseur alike travel to. Why make such a trip you may ask? Well its a wonderful and yet mysterious tale that has a part in how your adventure will begin. It is rumored that somewhere in the middle of the open seas sits an island. Not just any island but an island devout to Pokemon, inhabited by The Pokemon Professor. It is that this very same Professor runs a large lab where she spends day in and day out studying Pokemon. No one has ever seen or visited this Pokemon paradise but what can be said for sure is the excitement that comes from what is delivered from the island itself. From this island, a train continuously ventures on its journey over crisp ocean waters towards the regions with Pelippers and Wingulls roosting within for a long ride. Within the train's bowels Pokemon eggs sit awaiting to be delivered. As the train meets each watery station the docks are filled with ecstatic chatter anWelcome to PKMNation!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
why you shouldn't be doing commissionsthis seems to be the topic going around and it relates to me a lot and my current livelihood, so im going to post this here for posterity's sake, as well as to get some important points across.why you shouldn't be doing commissions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
for reference: i'm been doing commissions for six years now, consistently and rarely closing shop. i have fulfilled all orders (save for my current ones, obviously) and have had consistent customer satisfaction throughout that time. i have never had to refund customers because i could not fulfill their order, or because i messed up their order entirely. i have also fulfilled every art trade i have done, at least on my end (we'll get to this later).
i'm not exactly a buyer of commissions for the most part, at least when it comes to drawings. my money tends to go to fashion-related commissions (necklaces, wristcuffs, things like that). i do, however, know the plights of those customers.
many artists in this community and outside of it honestly have no experience or knowledge when it comes t

I hope to show you guys soon what we worked on. We're suppose to finish next week.
I love my job.

For those you wondering how he met. He commented last year that he loved my artwork. Then this year (couple months ago), I drew his character Sody Pop, and my amazing friend Keegan :iconconkertheking: showed it to John. Next thing you know, he contacted me and we ended up meeting face-to-face. And now I intern for him.

NiGHTS: Descent into Dreams comic!EDiT 13/11: // And here's the logo and project name ^_^bNiGHTS: Descent into Dreams comic!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been thinking a lot about NiGHTS lately. You get that when you're working on a project that's NOT NiGHTS *lol* (Sorry Sonic!) But now the game is out I'd really like to try to make a real start on that NiGHTS comic I've been promising over the years.
I started Engelbaum as a way to save all my best original ideas so they wouldn't be wasted on a fan fiction and that's it's own thing now. But Wtahm ground to a halt when Journey of Dreams appeared because i didn't want to continue a story that would overlap official storyline and appear rubbishy. Besides wtahm is completely cringy now i started writing it when i was 14 or something. I'm 29 now. I can definately do better XD
So i'm thinking just for fun i'll start up a proper online NiGHTS comic series. There's a lot of things i've not decided yet, like if it'll be traditional or digital, how the story will run, what little cool parts of wtahm i can recycle

How to cope with Art BlocksAlmost every single artist has at one point or the other in their life lost motivation, inspiration or even both and without the knowledge of how to deal with what we then call an Art Block, it can take a long time to overcome this lack of artistic drive. A time that might otherwise be used for further improvement and personal artistic growth.How to cope with Art Blocks3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So today I would like to give you a few tips on how to defeat an art block. There is no definite guarantee to either of them, as everybody experiences their blocking differently but maybe you can at least find small suggestions that will eventually help.
Inspiration is literally everywhere, you just need to open your eyes to see it.
We can find inspiration through:
Letting your favourite books, movies, series or games inspire you is always one of the most obvious ways. Fan Art is a good way to retrieve inspiration because most of all y
Dear DA 4/22/12Dear DA-Dear DA 4/22/123 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have learned that fear is a device of our own creation. I often watch myself and others in situations where fear is turned into rage, pain, and depression. The communication breaks down and often a fight will rage that never end because the real issue isn't being addressed. I have noticed more and more how fear manipulates our lives in negative ways. It prevents progress, undermines positivity, and ruins our self esteem. We shouldn't ever fear the things that may happen, did happen, or are happening. Instead, I have learned that we should fear only fear itself and those who sew it.
For those who sew fear and negativity cannot help us or themselves. It is easy to be dragged down by them and the insecurity that surrounds us all. This is why we must surround ourselves with people who love and care for us. They are the ones who will bring us up no matter how horrible it may be. It is the people who never make a effort to change that we must avoid. They will never truly love or a
Information On Abandoned PetsThis journal contains all the information on how I deal with abandoned pets ^^. I've not noticed anyone else doing things this way ^^ I hope you all like the idea <3.Information On Abandoned Pets2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is an Abandoned pet?
- An abandoned pet is a pet that has/is either:
--- Owned by a person who has left/been banned from DeviantART for over 6 months.
--- Has been formally abandoned by it's owner.
--- Is being used in any way, shape for form that is not permitted by the group's rules.
--- Has been Up For Adoption for over a week.
--- When an owner leaves the group without an explanation on their pet's page or through note they will be contacted and told that their pet will be classified as Abandoned if they leave it for over 6 months (exceptions can only be met if the explanation is given).
What happens if a pet is Abandoned?
- If a pet is abandoned it is placed inside the 'Abandoned Pets' folder and put up for re-adoption without charge.

Something Fishy is going onIt seems the that no good Catfish is up to up something again, I don't know what she is plotting, but one of my undercover agents have informed me she is starting to rally a army again.

My Furry land creatures keep a visual eye out, this Catfish is a crafty one, and won't think twice before skinning you for your pelt.
Her past devilish plot was to turn every furry animal back into their devolved state the Fish as for the ones that wont follow her she turns them into coats, sadly skins them alive!
Watch your backs my friends and make sure to arm your self's well, we might be going to war once again with ones called FISH.

A word about the state of 2DAfter hearing about Disney gutting their 2D theatrical animation department, I think I've finally realised something. 2D isn't dying everywhere it's only dying in the North America's Theatrical movies. 2D is pretty much everywhere else in the world. Japan is still putting out several 2D TV shows and theatrical films, 2D is still big in TV animation (Even more bigger than CGI, since 2D is easier to achieve on a TV budget), and it's huge on the internet, serval shorts while made in adobe flash still use the frame by frame techniques of classic 2D animation. And it is possible for independent studios to make 2D animated films, recently the web series Dick Figures started a Kickstarter and managed to get enough money to produce a movie based on the series, in fact I think they're getting close to finishing it now. So in conclusion 2D is only dying when it comes to theatrical animation in North America, it's alive and well everywhere else and if we want to bring it back to North AmerA word about the state of 2D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
