How to Write a Story: A Guide by KitaWriting a StoryHow to Write a Story: A Guide by Kita4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello guys! Kita-Angel here again with even more stuff! Today I will be taking the time to make an article about story writing, really the key points, what they are, how you can improve on them and what a story really is, like what brings it all together.
There is going to be a LOT of key stuff here, and it is going to sound like English class in high school all over again. Hooray! But this is valuable stuff, so pay attention. It is definitely worth it!
This guide was written with the intention to help those who lack any experience at all with story writing to know what is required to make a story. After this we can maybe start looking into how to improve what you have worked on!
What Makes a Story
So, what is it that makes a story? Where do people get these amazing ideas for amazing stories? How do we take the idea and make all the components needed?
Generally, in a story you have an Int

Ideal Women Confusion: Dear LadiesDear female watchers,Ideal Women Confusion: Dear Ladies3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So as I draw my pinup work I often take heat as you can expect for drawing what I draw. And often I get the comment that I am drawing an "ideal woman", but to me that is not so.
So why not discuss this and put my views out there in a bit more detail. What is my ideal woman? Even though I am bisexual, we'll focus on the ladies and body types. So all humans fit in a range of body types and here is the spectrum:
One side - Obese
Middle - Muscular
Opposite side - Anorexic
But it's not that black and white, and none of those 3 extremes interests me. I'm sorry that I can't be sexually attracted to all shapes and sizes, but my brain doesn't work that way. However I do like the variations of the grey areas:
Between Obese & Muscular - Chubby and Curvy
Between Muscular & Anorexic - Toned and Skinny
Withing chubby, curvy, toned and thin there are many variations and that's what I like. Now then there's the issue of breast size, some say bigger the better but I

Want your own Pokemon OC to my comic? READ!YES! So, as you some know, i started today comic '' Yumi's Adventurous Adventures''Want your own Pokemon OC to my comic? READ!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Cover --> http://fav.me/d5e3bg4
SO, i need some BG (background) AND little bit bigger role having character to it. I could create them itself, but if someone is interested, i would like to have change!
So, here somethings, what you need read first, before you comment.!!
Character should be under 17, but BG characters can be older.
When you propose your character to comic, say do you want it to be BG character, or bigger role having character. This helps me to choose them.
I don't take all! I take the ones, what suits to comic.
I take 1-5 bigger role having characters, and 5-10 BG characters.
Remember, generation is JOHTO.
When you propose your character, i need full body picture of him/her AND picture of his/her poketeam (if they are just regular ones, just names is enough) ! I need to know his info too,

I found them again, thanks to the patience and kindness of one man.
And then he was taken from me as well...for no fault of his own, but those of a few misguided words. I don't blame him. I never ever will.
How do you recover when you have nothing left to recover for?
Because I do have something to recover for. I have every single one of you. You give me faith...and hope and make me believe in myself. Thank you...thank you for making me believe in myself again.
I love you all.
My newest project.Here it is. ApothecaryAphid ANIMATED.My newest project.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well. This is the first one so it is obviously going to suck. I started to animate and started a youtube channel. So check it out. Like, Subscribe, and share it to everybody. Now I know it is crap, give me a break it's my first time. I will be working on the animations frequently. But don't expect them coming out every day. Animating is really hard (not the way I do it. LAZY) I still have a day job, and it takes up all of my time. So let everybody know. I am already working on the next one. Also I am writing a animated Slender one.

Boston UpdateEDIT: They caught the suspects and the city is not under lockdown anymore. Thank goodness for that and thank you guys for your support!Boston Update2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you know, I live in Boston.
Lately this week Boston has been going through a lot of tough events. And as of right now, the city is under lockdown. There's a lot of dumb/stupid information that is being thrown out as frequently as the accurate/helpful ones and honestly I don't think I have enough knowledge to comment on any of them. Only thing I know is that we are being very cautious and hoping no one else gets hurt.
I can also tell you now that my friends are safe. My family (who does not even live in Massachusetts) are safe. I am safe.
Regardless of how you feel about the events (and whatever odd conspiracies you have with it) at least send good thoughts to Boston.

This was done on a class' chalkboard because today we didn't have our normal classes.

The thing was, I like salt on my popcorn and he doesn't. So basically we did rock, paper, scissors to see if we would put salt on the popcorn or not.
So I was practically fuming the whole time doing the previews when Drake told me he would be "right back". The movie was already past the title screen portion when he came back wit

I grab the Pokeball, but then it opens up and something came out of it! "Oh my god! Are you Mew!?" I said! "Mew Mew!" said Mew! I couldn't believe it! Pokemon are real now!? That is imposible! "I know your wishes, Chris." said Mew. "OH MY GOD! YOU CAN TALK!?" I screamed! "Yes. Would you like to visit the Pokemon world?" said Mew. "Y-Yes! I want to!" I said happily!

Contest!While I'm still on break for a day or soContest!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would REALLY like to have another pokemon OC companion for Sparks - but I haven't fully developed any ideas so I thought it would be neat if I made a contest where one of YOU can design one for me
1) Cannot be an existing character you created or your pokesona. I'd like for it to be totally different. It MUST be a new drawing. That said, it can be any pokemon EXCEPT a pichu - Sparks has a lot of pichu buddies already and preferably not a chu
2) MUST contain a description of the personality at a minimum. A picture alone, even if I like the design I won't be able to identify it's characteristics that easy. CAN BE just a written description but it must be at least a paragraph if it is -- 8 - 10 sentences. The description can be in the artist comments or as part of the drawing but I must be able to see it
3) Thing is, when I come up with an OC, I'd like it to have a distinctive personality in addition
