Hi! This is Chivi-chivik M@ngaka and I'll show you how to create good funny stuff!
NOTE: There are some bits that talk about visual effect more than techiques. If you are a writer, just skip those.
NOTE 2: Sorry for my English and any typo I've probably made.
You know there are a gazillion jokes and tropes you can use for make your funny stuff, the problem comes when you have to pick some of them and put them together in your works into a way that makes sense so you can ensure some laughs.
Actually it's not that hard. Actually, the main problem is YOU.
Before making anything funny
Know your humor style
How many funny material do you know, and where did you take it from?
Depending on what do you prefer to read and watch, your humor style will be one or antoher.
For example, let's speak about me. I always preferred Manga and Anime over European and Western media (this doesn't mean I don't watch/read them

You obviously have your pencil/key board in front of you, right? So now we're just going to sit down and write this amazing and stupendous piece of art right? Yeah! Let's get our writing on! Actually, that's a big NO. You can't just sit down and write this story that's going to blow everyone off their seats. No one can. To do something like that takes years of experience and even the most professional writers will admit that it's not so easy to make everything perfect in writingeven then, no piece of literature is perfect, no matter how many times people tell you it is. You have to work really hard and practice hard to reach something that'll even be comparable to perfect. So, this tutorial is, to my best explanation, give you some tips and tricks to help improve your writing. Now, my literature focuses mainly on fiction, so I give tips towards that.
Finding Your Ideas
Before you do anything related to writing a story, you need ideas. I
Text: Particle Mo, Ne, YoText: Particle Mo, Ne, Yo3 years ago in Other More Like This
'Mo' in Japanese is basically the equivalent of the English word "too" or "also". It takes the place of the subject marker 'wa/ga' when used in a sentence. Let's try some examples.
Kore wa enpitsu desu.
That is a pencil.
Kore mo enpitsu desu.
That is also a pencil.
Be careful not to place 'mo' at the end of the sentence as in English, this happens quite often. (Example: I am a student also.)
Watashi wa gakusei desu.
I am a student.
Watashi mo gakusei desu.
I am also a student.
You don't have to use "full" sentences to add 'mo' to. They can be as simple as this:

From the most novice to the most accomplished, dA is home to artists of all types and skills. This mish-mash of talent, experience, knowledge, and eagerness to learn creates a beautiful opportunity for mentorships between those who are learning and those who are willing to lend their time and patience to a burgeoning new artist or writer. But forming those relationships can be daunting for those looking for help and unfulfilling for those offering that help.
This is the first of a two part article series that aims to address a few key points of miscommunication that seem to be common between those willing to offer critique and constructive commentary and those seeking feedback. You may have heard that the critique community on deviantART "sucks" or "doesn't exist", but I'll humbly beg to disagree. I've been an activ
Zodiac Profile: Aquarius~ Aquarius ~Zodiac Profile: Aquarius2 years ago in Writing More Like This
So I'm sure you've heard the stories about Aquarius people. They're fun-loving, airy, a bit out of their minds.... Yeah, well, that stuff is all true! Well at least a little bit.
There are two kinds of Aquarians in the world: the loud, sociable, party animal type, and the reserved, shy but sweet type. I've even seen a few hybrids. It doesn't really matter though, because beneath that they're fundamentally the same. Both are exceptionally smart, funny, big-hearted (perhaps to a fault) humanitarians.
Both are also likely to have a large circle of what others might call friends, perhaps even the Aquarians themselves. But they might "feel" more like aqcuaitences to them. A lot of people might not realize it, but Aquarians often feel very lonely.
In fact, most Aquarian problems stem from (or are indeed) internal conflict. Deep down, Aquarians are very insecure. You think Virgo's are hard on themselves? Remember that Aquarius is Leo's opposite. So if Leos are bold and confident
