Raindrops Fans are Amazing...I mean...CRAZYI really mean it, you guys... I'm always impressed with how much support my fancomic gets. I still get tons of feedback from it all the time, and daily notes asking for its' update. Sometimes, I get notes from fans who are overly passionate, or maybe not so polite. Sometimes they are just awkward, albeit very charming...Raindrops Fans are Amazing...I mean...CRAZY2 years ago in Personal More Like This

This. TAKES. THE. CAKE. I don't even...
It was so unbelievable, I have to tell you.
So a couple of days ago I checked my DA Notes and there was a pile of messages waiting for me. I haven't been able to check DA often as of late due to work and the fact that my Computer has been dying and I've been trying to avoid using it as much as possible until my new Computer arrives. ANYWAY, I was surprised to find a note from my friend, masa-kocha. I opened it, and this is what it said:
She also happened to be my coworker, and sat like... right across from me. Curiouser and curiouser why she would note me instead of just asking me directly

The End of the Twinkie?http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2012/11/16/hostess-twinkies-ding-dongs-wonder-bread-going-out-of-business/1708409/The End of the Twinkie?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
World War 3 may just be months away, with much of the middle east currently being blown apart by missiles and the locals setting their neighbours on fire, but the real news is that the Twinkie, the USA's primary contribution to world cuisine, could cease to be.
"You eat those?" I hear people ask. Hell no. Never eaten one in my life. There's something about their unnatural, chemical-yellow colour and that they have a half-life rather than a use-by date that just sets off one too many alarm-bells.
In fact, I'm pretty sure that if you read the print on the pack, you'll find asbestos to be a key ingredient.
Even John McClane can't keep one down, and he took out a building full of terrorists with nothing but his bare feet and a Santa hat.
Which leads to my point: Without the Twinkie, there are SO many lines from SO many classic movies that future generations just a

Suiting Prep: Your fursuit and you!Was talking with another maker and we started chatting about suiting experiences and some of the not so nice things that follow. When you hit a con you usually see all the fluff first before some of the stink hits you. We discussed seeing suits that looked real mangy, smelled horrid, or just needed a good burning due to miscare. While you take care of yourself, your suit needs care too!!Suiting Prep: Your fursuit and you!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's how to keep you smelling really awesome at a con out of suit:
1. SHOWER. No one wants to smell your funk, no matter how 'natural' you're going for. Soap, water, scrub, repeat if need be.
2. Deodorant. Kill the BO where it really starts. It's a serious put off when you can smell the suiter before seeing them but its even worse if the person is out of suit.
3. Toothbrush/toothpaste: Fresh breath is also important. Keep them pearly whites white
4. Pack several sets of CLEAN clothes in a SEPARATE container than your fursuit stuff!! Don't wear the same stuff over and over again, that's just... nas

New Years RoundupThis has been a very unusual year for me. A lot of stuff has been happening, yet at the same time it’s almost like nothing’s happened at all. Remember last year how I took a 6-7 month break from making art because my health was declining? It should probably be pointed out that that sort of thing isn’t cured easily, and even now going into 2014 I’m still struggling with the side effects. You can’t just snap your fingers and have your health magically cured, and over the course of 2013 if I’ve ever seemed aloof or “out of it” there’s very medical reasons why.New Years Roundup1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The worse part about my health is that it’s sort of drained me of energy to work on anything. It can sometimes take me weeks to get even simple SYAC strips out the door, let alone bigger more detailed works. Days and weeks seem to fly by at times too. There’s been a lot of roadblocks in my way lately and getting through them has been quite challenging. This is the sor
Digitigrade Leg and Stilt ConstructionIf your character has animal-like legs, such as a fawn, a werewolf, or a gargoyle, a draenai, tauren, etc, you have probably run across the problem of leg construction. These character types require digitigrade legs to look authentic and the whole point is to look authentic, right?Digitigrade Leg and Stilt Construction5 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those who are confused about what digitigrade means, here is the definition (Wiki):
A digitigrade is an animal that stands or walks on its digits, or toes. Digitigrades include walking birds (what many assume to be bird knees are actually ankles), cats, dogs, and most other mammals, but not humans, bears, and a few others (cf. plantigrade, unguligrade). They are generally quicker and move more quietly than other mammals.
So let's take a peek at how we can achieve the look without breaking our shins, hanging from the rafters in a desperate effort to stretch our Achilles tendon (No, really... DO NOT DO THAT), or undergoing some sort of mutagenic gene therapy.
Some methods are more comfortable and user frie

Time To Give away a Free Tiny Top HatWell! I mentioned before that we only needed to make 39 more sales to meet the first goal I ever made for our online shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/littlecasaroo?ref=si_shop) of 365 sales. Since then, we've made a few more sales, so now we only need to sell 13 1 more hat To reach that goal and I have confidence that we're definitely gonna do it!! :iconfinallyplz:Time To Give away a Free Tiny Top Hat2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We're going to randomly pick someone out of the last 39 sales to receive a completely free Tiny Top Hat! So if you want a chance to win the free hat, there's only 13 1 more spot left!
Also, I'd be happy to feature everyone on Deviantart who was one of these final 39 sales if you'll just let me know it was you!
I'm so excited for this and I hope everyone else is too! I appreciate all the support, and even if you can't buy a hat, I'd still love to do more contests and giveaways some time next year!!

So, the concert last night was amazing! I got to meet Joey, Darren, Meredith, and Brian. We got pictures with them and as a whole group. Charlene was amazing and I actually caught her guitar pic when she threw it out into the crowd. Starkid was perfect. They were funny and the song arrangements were great.
The Scarpbook. Well, I gave it to Brian in the autograph line and he put it under his chair to save it for later. So that means no pictures of video of them with it but they have it! Brian said that he would look at it in his dressing room. And I told Joey, Dylan, and Meredith about it and they said they would look at it too. I also tlaked to their tour manager about it and she said she loved the idea an

Hashima + Madara mirror Sakura + Ino?Fromhere + continuation of this theoryHashima + Madara mirror Sakura + Ino?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Ok, now I wanted to bring more 'proofs', if you want to call them like that, to see why I said that Hashirama is foreshadowing a Sakura development and why he is associated with her or, viceversa. When I said related/linked/associated, this is what I meant.
That Sakura and Hashirama share similar traits that have been found only in the two of them.
Now, as I said throughout the thread, besides the obvious Naruto/Sasuke parallel, Madara's and Hashirama's childhood flashbacks remember me a lot of Ino's and Sakura.
Let's count them a bit here.
1: When they first meet, they introduce themselves in a similar way that Ino and Sakura did, asking about their one another's names, differences are, of course, considering Ino and Sakura lived in a different times, however, Ino is pretty much similar to Madar
Ubisoft Bullshit, Nintendo Wins, Link is a girlNow that the E3 dust has started to settle we can focus on some of the stuff that happened earlier this week in more detail.Ubisoft Bullshit, Nintendo Wins, Link is a girl8 months ago in Personal More Like This
When asked about why there was no female playable assassin in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game, Ubisoft made the bad decision to try and justify it. They said that a female assassin was planned, but that they didn’t have the resources to implement it because it would’ve require too much extra work and “business is business” after all.
I call bullshit on that. It’s been well known that adding a female character to a game doesn’t increase the budget much (if at all), and many of the same animations and actions can be applied to both male and female characters. Even Jim Sterling addressed this issue (2 years ago) by asking people in the industry how “hard” it is to add female character models and the answer is... not hard at all really:
