Ideal Women Confusion: Dear LadiesDear female watchers,Ideal Women Confusion: Dear Ladies2 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
TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR WORKHow to improve your performance with Graphic ArtsTIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR WORK1 year ago in Personal More Like This
These tips are also very valuable for those who are starting out in the world of Graphic Arts.

Facilitate your work so you save your time, and therefore can do more work.
How can I do this?
Well, this is a question that depends solely on your organization, and your type of work tool (in my case, just use Photoshop, the tips will be to him).
For starters, do not leave it for later, what you can do today.

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.

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 Update1 year 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.

New llama levels and Badge Pages! Fellow llama herders!New llama levels and Badge Pages!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may have noticed that today is a momentous day in the field of llamas. Due to their unexpected popularity, we have decided to tweak the llama levels a bit, in order to maximize fun and fairness for every deviant around -- from llama aficionados to those who simply dabble in llamas from time to time.
What llamas? Glad you asked!
Behold, the new breakdown of llamas! (If you dislike spoilers and wish to achieve the levels by pure surprise, then keep scrolling.)
= 1 (Llama)
= 10 (Super Llama)
= 50 (Albino Llama)
= 100 (Super Albino Llama)
= 500 (Ninja Llama)
= 1,000 (Fancy Llama)
= 2,500 (King Llama)
= 5,000 (Spartan Llama)
= 7,500 (Wizard Llama)
= 10,000 (Golden Llama)
There you have it! So many awesome reasons to stay connected to the community and to search out new and undiscovered deviants. Share the wealth, my friends. Share it.

What Is The Confession Corner?
This is not a journal-journal, nope~
This is a place where if you have something that is bothering you that you can leave a comment and me or others will talk to you about said problem because, let's face it, we all get down sometimes and talking to someone is the best option!
It may not be too popular but I feel that this has potential!
Are There Rules?
Yes, there are rules however there aren't very many, it's just the usual~
If you are replying to someone else's problems please don't flame/hate or bully.
There are some restrictions as to what you can confess or comment-- make sure it's not too personal.

IT WAS MORE AMAZING A SECOND TIME :icondragonweep:
The movie was just perfect.
This was Drake's first time seeing it so before we got into his dad's car he was all like:

And I was like:
"No promises~ :iconpervysilverplz:"
AND WHEN WE GOT THERE.
WE BOUGHT POPCORN.
THEN WE STARTED ARGUING.
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

SuicideYup. Suicide. Although it might be hard for some people to believe I was suicidal in 6th and 7th grade.

Looking back on it I find it stupid that I even considered it. But I was also that person who would sit alone at a small table in the lunchroom either writing or reading a good book. I was picked on often and every time when I'm about to open up to my parents about it they bring my grades up. They always expected straight A's from me and even now I feel pressured into getting good grades to the point where I skip meals just to study or do homework. That part of me hasn't changed but it was a lot worse back then... I never had any friends that would hang around me often. Yeah, a simple "Hi how are you?" here and there but most of my friends went to a different middle school than me since our neighborho
