5 Tips On World Building: Part 1EDIT: If you like this journal entry, check out The Sarcastic Guide to Writing ebook http://www.amazon.com/The-Sarcastic-Guide-Writing-ebook/dp/B005TOCC1C for exclusive content on world-building, character, and dialogue!5 Tips On World Building: Part 15 years ago in Personal More Like This
World-building, for me, is one of the biggest things about fantasy. It has, in many cases, saved a book from sucking. Conversely, poor world-building can drag a brilliant plot and excellent characterization down. What is world-building? It is consistency of logic and the new rules that you introduce as part of the story. Easy to say, hard to do. World-building, in good fantasy, more often than not, provides some kind of critical plot point. (If it doesn't, that's okay, but really good fantasy usually takes an established rule and gives it story stakes.)
Examples? Phillip Pullman establishes the rule of daemons in his His Dark Materials trilog

I will update this with more tricks as we go on! I've been using SAI for several years and continue to find new shortcuts. Also it bugs me when artists don't use shortcuts, so the time they spend searching for the right button is time wasted and not improving B(
Hold CTRL and click to jump to layer:
- Hold CTRL and drag to move whatever's on that layer!
- Hold CTRL and click and you will automatically jump to that layer! (Some versions of SAI uses ctrl+ shift, try it out!)
- Hold CTRL over a colored area and a little tag will appear next to your cursor that shows the name of that layer!
Go to View> New for a little viewfinder
- If you want to see what your artwork looks like, at 100% or whatever zoom you like (other than from the little navigator which is very tiny), you can set your canvas to windows

Photographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer

Coffee is a very personal part of a person’s life. Having a “way you take your coffee” is as much an indication of the crossing over into adulthood as a first broken heart. Even when psychically rudderless and adrift, awaking to morning in one of those blank margins of one’s life, there is always the next start, a new start—in that first cup of coffee. Coffee is the one nonjudgemental friend who never betrays.
“Coffee makes us severe and grave and philosophical.”

Squigly is here as free DLC, and we are working on Big Band now. Big Band is very complicated and large, but he should be awesome. Then it will be Eliza, Beowulf and Robo-Fortune (maybe not in that order).. and who knows what else the future will hold!

Some Yaoi, Yuri, Slash, M-preg Gay Stereotypes*Some, (but not all) of the negative gay stereotypes in these fetish genres.Some Yaoi, Yuri, Slash, M-preg Gay Stereotypes3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some of the Yaoi, Slash, or Shounen-ai Negative Gay Stereotypes:
1. Gay men MUST be handsome or they don't count. There is LITERALLY no such thing as an ugly gay man in these genres, only pretty-boys or models. Also 'Bara' doesn't count. Bara is written by gay men for gay men and will often portray older, less-model type males who look like they could be actual people. Not the 'cutesy bishies and ukes' that plague yaoi/shounen-ai. Yes, if you haven't realized it by now, gay men don't come in that pre-packaged box of: every gay man is handsome and young. Like really? REALLY?
2. Gay men MUST be light-skinned or they aren't as interesting. These genres tend to cater towards Caucasian or Asian gay men only (or just anyone who is light-skinned). There is pretty much no mention of African, Indian, Middle Eastern, Hispanic gay men, etc. unless they're handsom
Lily-Bashing and canon shippersIf you belong to the HP and Snape fandom and there is a good chance you do if you read this Journal, you know that there is always this old and topical issue of these strange (from the outside) wars between fans; different shippers of various pairings; between fanon, canon; and this transversal question of the reading and appreciation of the books, especially of the DH book. How strong is the canon keeper in you. Do you, on the contrary, deliberately take a distance with canon. And maybe you can appreciate only the books. Or more the movies. Or your own fantasy.Lily-Bashing and canon shippers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you were, like me, in the fandom before the release of DH (the book), and already a Snape fan, you probably had a strong emotional shock when you read this book. As I understood it personally, what happened then is that Snape had been for many people who loved the character, a strong and powerful man and wizard, presented like an authoritative, dominant, impressive protagonist. A version that was supported by the

Collection: Haunted HousesCollection: Haunted Houses5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Coming across a deserted house, whether hidden by the distance of a rolling countryside or by the shadows of adjoining city ghetto dwellings, is like stumbling across an unnoticed, unburied corpse. It is obviously dead now, but once it was full of lives. Coming across a haunted house is different. Deserted or still occupied, it is a place where lives, unsatisfied, have refused to move on into a full death. The houses reflect their tenants. They are living dead structures, refusing to return to dust.
“What terrified me will terrify others; and I need only describe the spectre which had haunted my midnight pillow”

#3 - California/Nevada tripFirst of all... here's a picture of a map with our route highlighted on it: http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm24/fizzfizz_2008/holidayroute.png#3 - California/Nevada trip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The plane trip was 10 hours which is the longest time I've ever been on a plane (the longest I've had before is 3 hours and I think that was when I went to Florence + Rome. Thankfully we had TVs, and on the way there I watched The Hunger Games, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and half of Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked just for a laugh (it got boring though so I turned it off)
We started in San Francisco, which is an amazing place. The weather is something which you really wouldn't expect for California: very, very cold and foggy in the morning and evening and really hot in the day. We stayed there for four nights, during which time we went by boat round the bay, took a visit to Alcatraz island, explored Chinatown (I thought of DojangDoll while we were wandering round as all the signs were in Chinese!), went on the tram which is
PE: Importance of AnatomyThe importance of anatomy.PE: Importance of Anatomy2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Understanding anatomy is crucial to many aspects of your art.
You'll notice that anatomy is essential for drawing. It becomes difficult to accurately draw a complex pose, or even a simple one, if you don't understand what's under all that skin or fur, or even bark. Knowing how everything fits together is important.
Once you notice where that certain muscle is, shading and form become much more accurate and more natural. Knowing why the nose and eyes fall where they do make it much easier to draw from memory, and nail that natural look you were going for.
Learning the anatomy of the subject you're going to draw is quite important, and will definitely help you on several levels.
It's also easier to drawing sequences of movement. One will know what connects to what, and how they move. What is possible, and what isn't. (Range of motion)
Drawing people and other animals can be intimidating. Once you have a solid foundation, it's much easier
