"No," she replied with complete and utter finality. "No, absolutely not, that has 'no' written all over it."
"Come on, live a little—have an adventure! Leave your comfort zone!"
"I don't want to have an adventure. I'm content with safe mediocrity, thank you."
"Stop being an asshole, Simon."
"I might be mistaken, but I think that calling a terminally ill person an asshole inside a church might be a sin," he told her.
Holly shrugged. "But didn't the Bible say that telling the truth will set me free?"
"Well, that's life," said Holly flatly.
"Yes, but I don't have the greatest track record at life, do I?" replied Simon. "It's like I missed the memo. Really, I don't get why it's so difficult for me. What is life, anyway? How do you life?"
"Sometimes it just feels like I'm going crazy," said Holly. "
Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter by American McGeeHi all!Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter by American McGee2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many of you are aware of the Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter. For those who aren't, I would like to make you aware of it! American McGee has acquired film rights to the "Alice" property and is ramping up for a series of animated short films featuring our favorite tortured, blood-soaked heroine. The Kickstarter is within its last 66 hours of funding and needs your help to become a reality!
Please visit the Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter page to check out the video, and throw money at it! If you are unable to fund then please at least pass on the message to friends and other fans.
I love ALICE and the world that American McGee and Spicy Horse have created, and I hope they reach their target goal - we need more madness in this world!

Dissolved into the icy air, is the perfume that captivates you the most
Sit here and relax, don't hold back... there's nothing to fear
The little sugar candies are pretty, aren't they?
A taste that will drive you mad to the core
I have these sweet secret things, the tarts I stole from the Queen
I prepared them for you, I risked my life for it
Come, don't cry and eat! We are about to drown in your tears
Eat the mushroom with skill, be the right size for me
"The grinning cat appears in the form of moonlight"
Has your crying calmed down a bit? I am the only ally you have
Let's tell riddles, let's play! You are sure to forget the passage of time
Oh my! Have you eaten too much tart? It's the completion of our sin
You can't go back now, prepare yourself
You'll be hunted down by the card soldiers

I am only accepting portrait commissions from now. ( I can deliver these faster for people and it keeps it fun for me too.)
I also only do single bust/portrait characters now.
To point out as well, I do commissions for extra pocket money, they are not my main source of income so they do come second to my client work and because of this private commissions come second to client work. I hope you can be understanding with any delay there may be to get to your or finish your requested commission. I really appreciate all patience and understand.

Phil Fish Hacked
Phil Fish, the creator of FEZ, is pretty much universally hated by people online. Recently he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, creator of Depression Quest, who was herself under fire from internet thought police for “corrupting” games journalism’s integrity by sleeping with journalists to get favorable reviews of her game (allegations which later proved to be untrue). Because he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, Phil found himself under a massive internet attack, wherein hackers compromised his SSI, passwords, Polytron's PayPal account, and other sensitive data.
In the wake of the attack, Phil Fish is now selling off the rights to FEZ and to Polytron. He left with this rather depressing twitter message: “I

Character SheetsACT I: The Character SheetCharacter Sheets4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A character sheet, containing both imagery and wording, have been in use for millions of years.
First developed by the dinosaurs, it was a surefire method used to captivate smaller prey. The prey would see the reading material in front of them, and that would coax them into standing in one place, just long enough so the big dinosaur could sneak up from behind and eat them.
But in our modern society, a character sheet serves a much different purpose. They are used now to explain our characters to other people.
So to cut to the chase, let me say: WHY would you need to explain your character to someone else? The point of the story itself is to present, explain and develop a character.
Well there's a variety of reasons I guess... Fun, boredom, but the actual reason is because you have business with the people reading it.
The purpose of a character sheet is to both remind you, and inform other artists about what is needed to depict your charac

What's a 7 Days Drawing Challenge?
The challenge is drawing 7 different things based on 7 themes I will give you guys. A drawing a day. I know it may sound a bit tiring but the objective is to keep yourself inspired during 7 days in a row. The more you draw, the more you'll feel like drawing!
What about the Rules?
The only rule is that you have to draw (and submit) something each day! It doesn't matter the media nor the art style. That means it can be traditional or digital. The style may be realistic, manga/anime, cartoon, etc. It may be a Black&White artwork but it has to be a final piece. Oh! Don't forget to mention me with "Picolo-kun" so it will pop up into my messages and I'll be able to see the artwork!

.: Factions + Jobs :. (WIP).: ABOUT THE FACTIONS :..: Factions + Jobs :. (WIP)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Circus is divided into 4 competitive Factions.
Every single Faction has it's specialities and only certain people can join them. They all have their own personal tent for their attractions, but these are smaller than the Main Tent. (Cirque Map can be found here.)
The Black, White, Red and Diamond Faction stand in competitions against each other - they strive to earn the most fame among the others to become the 'Ruling Faction'.
The Ruling Faction decides where the Circus is located and which attractions are given in the Main Tent. Also, they set themes and events for the period they are ruling in.
The fifth Faction, which does not participate in the competition, is called the 'Dream Faction' and acts neutral, controlling and judging the competition of the 4 other Factions. However, only Cirque Leaders can be part of this Faction.

Good News, Bad NewsSo the good news is that the new technique of posting a preview image with a link to my website does indeed generate quite a bit more of extra activity to my ad revenue generating pages. From the few tests I’ve done so far I get on average an extra 2-3,000 views than when I post the comic on DA with a link.Good News, Bad News1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The bad news is that this means it’s in my best interest to post more stuff on my various websites, and not on DA. Which is problematic because I enjoy interacting with my fans here on DA far more than I do on my website. I like having everything kinda all together in one place and this new technique kinda disrupts that flow. While it’s in my best interest, it also kinda feels a little cheap and annoying.
Maybe I’ll be able to combine the two at some point, updating the older previews with the full comics/art like a few weeks down the road, but I don’t know. It’s also sadly likely in my best interest to update all my older strips that are still po
