Commissions FOREVER OPEN to save for Sam's TripCommissions FOREVER OPEN to save for Sam's Trip2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello Everyone! <3
I am opening commissions/donations to help raise money for hotel/dinner expenses for my dear :iconshoelesscosmonaut: when he comes to visit this summer. My parents won't let him stay with us and the cheapest hotel I found nearby is $64USD a night. He is planning on staying 2 weeks and the amount of money we need to raise is insane. But with only working 2 days a week I do not have nearly enough money. So to help the expenses I am PERMANENTLY opening commissions until we raise enough. If you are interesting in commissioning me please take a look at my prices here
or if you are just wanting to be AMAZING and donate any amount my paypal is Tab10Art@aol.com.
I am taking on 5 commissions at a time but am keeping a running list of those interested.

Orange Ribbon Day!!As some of you may know, April 13th, along with being many other important things (4/13, John's birthday, update day, yeah), is an event called Orange Ribbon Day. Here is the post for those unfamiliar with it:Orange Ribbon Day!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I saw this post going around and thought it was a really great idea! Now I know this can be an every day thing, but what if we chose one day that all the homestucks would wear an orange ribbon for sure?
“What day should we wear it” you might ask. Well, how Does April 13th sound? The fateful day homestuck began as well as our very first kids first day of existence!
So We can think of this as a meetup day!!
Where: ANY PUBLIC PLACE!! (mall, taco bell, Pizza hut, combination taco bell and pizza hut. wherever!)
Time: ALL DAY!!
What to wear? At least wear the Orange ribbon. If you want to wear anything else, its up to you.
So a little summary:
Wear Orange Ribbon
Go into public
Meet other Homestuck
Have lunch/ become friends
Talk about OTPs

Tutorial Showcase #1DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. We first started with this series in TutorialsForYou but we decided that you might want to see some tutorials as well. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal. So here we go!Tutorial Showcase #12 years ago in Personal More Like This

Writing a Six Word Story3wyl recently posted a SixWordStories journal asking members how they write their stories, and she has kindly allowed me this opportunity to talk in a little more detail about my particular writing process. This blog isn’t meant to be a tutorial or even suggestions as to how to write your own. It’s really just a chance for me to discuss a subject that’s become very important to me.Writing a Six Word Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, to start off with, I like to read other people’s work. It’s what I did before I ever began writing my own six word stories, and I still do it to inspire myself. Sometimes someone else’s story will directly lead to one of my own. (And then I credit story and author in my notes.) But generally it’s not as definite as that. Seeing what others are doing sparks off ideas and sends me in a fresh direction.
Prompts assist me a great deal as well. The m

Parts of "Brave" I worked onMany people have asked what parts of the film "Brave" I worked on so I figured it might be best just to post a journal entry about it. Warning... if you have not seen the film there might be some spoilers in this.Parts of "Brave" I worked on2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My role on the film was "Master Lighting Artist" but my general role is "LIghting Technical Director". Don't let the word "director" confuse you. I am not the head of lighting, it's just a term for every Lighting Artist that means our job tends to be technical and most of the "directing" I'm doing is kicking computers to get them to do what I want. For those who do not know what "lighting" means on a 3D animated film let me give a quick description. Pixar movies are not hand drawn like traditional animation. They more closely resemble stop motion film where a physical 3 dimensional puppet is made, a set is built, real lights are put in place and then an animator moves the puppet slightly then takes a picture, moves it again and takes another picture, until you have a whole "s

I don't want people to stop drawing. Anyone, no matter how doofy or weird.
Bad art is still art, and I love bad art.
I don't hate ANY of the art I redraw or fav. All of it brings a smile to my face and it's always a sadness when it gets deleted due to flooding.
I don't redraw things to "make a statement" or "stick it" to someone, I do it because it's funny to me. And sometimes it's funny to me to redraw something by an obvious bait account or something "not that bad".
None of my work is malicious, it was all done with a light heart.
Woofs are for shits and giggles, a woof is not a weapon.
Bad art doesn't lower DA's quality, NON-art lowers its quality. Screenshots, traced bases, demotivationals, photobucket dumps, these are anti-art. Nothing new was created, only submitted. In the case of traced bases; de-created and submitted.
So please settle down a bit when you

Craft Elements of PoetryCraft Elements of PoetryCraft Elements of Poetry8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Lines and Stanzas
• Do you have a clear rationale for breaking each of your lines where they currently end?
• Do your linebreaks generate suspense and surprise, making the reader want to find out what will happen in the next line?
• Are you employing a combination of end-stopped and enjambed lines?
• If you have more than one stanza, do your line groupings increase the impact of your poem’s style and subject matter?
Meter and Rhythm
• Does your poem have a discernible rhythm – either a scannable metrical pattern, or, if your poem is in free verse, a distinctive cadence that distinguishes it from prose?
The Music of Poetry
• If your poem rhymes, are the rhymes original, intelligent, and necessary?
• Have you fully considered alternatives to perfect end rhymes, such as slant, internal, and eye rhymes?
• Whether or not you are using rhyme, are you
