Remaining Hope in Ben 10I've made it pretty clear that I hate Ben 10: Omniverse for the damage it is causing to the Ben 10 franchise, with my major issues being that Omniverse shows little respect to Dwayne McDuffie's contributions, the numerous retcons damaging the continuity (which was perfectly fine, Omniverse executives) of the Ben 10 franchise, the derailment of Ben Tennyson to be more like his original series' self (despite being a teenager now) and the ongoing attempt to make Kevin a villain again by slowly derailing his character until the Rooters unleash Weapon XI, which I am convinced will be Kevin, the horrific implications caused by the universal recreation (I think the Petrosapiens are now dead since Chromastone's flight ability has been retconned as a glitch, meaning Sugilite couldn't have gotten to Petropia's remains to restore it in time), and overall terrible writing (I'm looking at you, Rules of Engagement). As someone who has followed Ben 10 since the original series, Omniverse is even moreRemaining Hope in Ben 101 year ago in Personal More Like This
Ben 10 Omniverse: Rules of Engagement- My ThoughtsSo. I'm watching the Ben 10 Omniverse episode where Julie FINALLY comes back after 20+ episodes of being gone.... And she broke up with Ben. Off-screen. In a flashback.Ben 10 Omniverse: Rules of Engagement- My Thoughts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This. Is such a waste of a character like Julie. She was FINALLY getting some good character development in the previous season. She was shown to be able to deal with Ben very well, and was very close to him, Gwen, and Kevin (well, Kevin somewhat). And she just disappears, only to reappear BROKEN UP WITH BEN AND WITH A NEW BOYFRIEND. WHAT THE HELL, WRITERS. WHAT THE HELL. THIS IS NOT HOW YOU TREAT CHARACTERS.
Yea, I know there wasn't really a chance of their relationship lasting for very long, but for it to unceremoniously end just like that, and without any true mention about until this episode, JUST MAKES IT SO FREAKING AGGRAVATING. It had its problems, like any other real relationship, but they understood each other, and really did care about one another. For goodness, THEY'VE FOUGHT VILLAINS TOGETHER BEFORE.
Nasty Newscast:Ben 10: Omniverse is terribleHello readers, man its been ALONG time since my last newscast but I've been meaning to do a journal about Omniverse for awhile now. I grew up watching Ben 10 since it aired in 2005, at that time it was a cool show, but when Alien Force came out I got into the show again and thought it was better then Ben 10 because of the new drama and action. Then when Ultimate Alien came out with the similar elements but with Ben's Ultimatrix, my interest of the show went up a whole level. But then my love for the show was diminished when the directors of the show directors decided to change almost EVERYTHING that makes Ben 10 and aired Omniverse. The show, in my opinion, was terrible, I hate it as much as most of the Total Drama fandom hated All Stars (which was most of the fan base).Nasty Newscast:Ben 10: Omniverse is terrible10 months ago in Literature Features More Like This

I Dreamed a Dream (parody)I made my best, but had to cut off the first part, like in Susan Boyles version.I Dreamed a Dream (parody)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When fun was high
And Ben 10 worth watching
I dreamed that Gwevin would never die
I dreamed that CN would be forgiving
Then I was optimistic and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No joke unsaid, no smoothie untasted
But Derrick J. Wyatt comes at night
With his ego as big as a mountain
As he tears your hope apart
As he turns your dream to shame
And still I dream Kevin'll come back to me
That he and Gwen will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are stupid people we cannot weather
I had a dream Ben 10 would be
So different from this hell we´re living
So different now from what Omniverse is
Now CN has killed the dream I dreamed.
The Kevin part is confusing, I know - I meant I still dream Kevin will come back the way he was in UAF, or at least ressembling these good old times, in another cart

what i'd like to do is "host" a big ol' collab picture that includes a lot of artists. this will give artists exposure to others and vice versa, from their point of view. also, it is fun!!
what i am planning to do is make a template sheet and paste pictures you guys send to me onto it, hence me acting as a "host". to give you some ideas, i'll start to explain what i would like to do. this will be a large picture that looks like a "select your fighter" screen, like this:

Hot Topic selling artist's works without permission
A Tumblr post has been circulating, where Hot Topic is selling artist's works as T-shirts in their store, including popular fan art without the artist's permission, deviant artists included. It caught on wildfire when one user linked to deviantART's Submission Policy, stating users gave permission to dA by agreeing to their Terms of Service thereby allowing dA to sell it to third party royalty free.

Deviantart is a big place with an eclectic bunch of people. I'm curious as to what some of my foreign friends have to say about the subject.
My stance As a 24 year old American, this will be my second election that I'll be taking part in. In 2008 I voted for Barrack Obama, based on what the republican party has presented for this election, I'll be doing it again this election. When I look at the candidates its a no brainer for me. A lot of people really don't like Obama, for what ever their reasons are. I think people don't have an objective perspective on things when it comes to the president. He's one man, a lot of what happens in the country doesn't happen as a result of him specifically. Often times its congress's actions that dictate the change and outcome of things here at home.

AggregorSo I saw Escape from Agreggor today. It was awesome. Agreggor is a rockin awesome Osmosian...And nothing else........Aggregor5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok, this is how I went into the episode:
"Katy, don't start thinking that Agreggor is Kevin's dad in disguise. You thought that about Darkstar, Ragnerock and basically every villain that's showed up on the show! Maybe he's just really dead!"
Show: "He's an Osmosian!"
Me:"Coincidence Katy, coincidence."
Show:"He has the same personality, looks, and a similar voice to Kevin 11,000"
Show:"Kevin's dad, an energy absorber, died by getting hit by energy, which makes no sense."
Show: "He has the same nose as Kevin."
Me: "THE KEVIN DADDY!"
NO! I won't. I won't get my hopes up again only to have them dashed.
Plus, Kevin daddy or no, Agreggor is 10 times the villain Vilgax was and is bad ass with a glaive.
Oh and Animo's sideburns and silly plans are the bomb.

Kevin's Inevitable Return to VillainyFor all you Kevin Levin fans out there, I'm sure you've noticed that Kevin has undergone a severe character regression. In Ben 10: Alien Force and Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, Kevin slowly and steadily began to reform to the point that he has become a true hero. In the abomination known as Ben 10: Omniverse, however, Kevin is now a selfish coward who cares more about his car than Ben, who he left to deal with Princess Looma. I bet you're wondering what Kevin's future holds in store for him, and I have terrible news (the following information came from a chat I had with SilverLady7, the founder of the Ben 10 Original Series to Ultimate Alien group, a group that supports everything about Ben 10 excluding Omniverse, which they criticize in a civilized manner);Kevin's Inevitable Return to Villainy1 year ago in Personal More Like This

My DeviantART StoryI had been aware of deviantART’s existence for years and years before actually joining. I think I first saw a link there when I was browsing someone’s personal website and they mentioned they had an account in a big art site. I visited it but didn't understand a bit about how it worked or what was it’s purpose. Slowly, as I became a bit better (or at least less awful) at understanding English, I started to figure it out and became curious. I was afraid of joining for a long time because I knew it might result someone misusing my art, which was the absolute worst thing. I also knew that my English was far from fluent, and internet can be surprisingly harsh towards those who don’t speak English as their first language. I was terrified of writing descriptions to my pieces, because they had to be understandable for people all around the world and I simply lacked words.My DeviantART Story8 months ago in Art Features More Like This

Omniverse takes place in an Alternate Universe !?!Ever since Omniverse first aired, I've sometimes wondered if the events in Omniverse are taking place in an ALTERNATE UNIVERSE. I mean it is possible given the following reasons why.Omniverse takes place in an Alternate Universe !?!8 months ago in Personal More Like This
My first evidence is that the title of the show is called omniverse, which is an actual theory of their being more then one universe, each one having minor to major differences, which also explains why things are different in Omniverse then in the other Ben 10 shows, kinda secretly giving us the clue that OV is in a different universe. My second fact is how they pronounce Albedo's name in Omniverse, in AF/UA they pronounce his name Al-bee-do but in OV they say it as al-bay-do , the only logical way you can go from calling someones name differently is if that person had that name since birth, also Albedo never showed signs of being disturbed by the mispronunciation or points out to people that they were pronouncing his name wrong. The third is how n

New design - Reason: I've never liked the design because it's just too campy and also I would've watched the show if the design from Alien Force/Ultimate Alien remained. Come on, Ben being a 60's Dick Grayson guy, Gwen being a Velma Dinkley ripoff and Kevin being an Eric Draven ripoff?!Replacing Glen Murakami and the late Dwayne McDuffie with Derrick Wyatt and Matt Youngberg - Reason: Murakami and McDuffie made Ben Tennyson from a foolish hero to more Clark Kent from Smallville-esque character, but Matt Youngberg and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and Transformers Animated art director and producer Wyatt "flanderised" the character into an idiot hero. Just no to idiot heroism because those two guys (Murakami and McDuffie) worked with Man of Action for the DCAU-influenced two sequel series and made it mor
Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr

Sadly, I'm just expecting Omniverse to make Kevin a villain again.
I mean, Omniverse undid Charmcaster's character development because Derrick J. Wyatt, and I took this from TV Tropes but DJW believes this, said he didn't think Charmcaster becoming a "homicidal maniac who is obsessed with her father and from a race of magic space elves" worked at all, that it ruined everything that was special about her in the Original Series.
Yeah, because a generic evil sorceress is so much better than a character who LOST HER FATHER TO THE CRUELTY OF AN EVIL TYRANT AND IS TRYING TO ATONE FOR THE GENOCIDE SHE COMMITTED TO TRY TO BRING BACK HER FATHER BECAUSE SHE MISSED HIM! No, we need Charmcaster to be craz

Ben 10 Omniverse: I've Had ItI don't think I should be a Ben 10 fan anymore. Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but I just think Omniverse sucks so bad. The main character Ben Tennyson is such a fucking moron, it's unimaginable. And do you know the sucky part? I don't think Cartoon Network gives a shit. I can write how much I hate the Ben 10 sequel shows all I like, but no matter what I'll always find some fans who think Ultimate Alien was awesome or Alien Force was cool or Omniverse is the greatest show ever. I feel like it's a losing battle.
