The worst anti-vaccine argumentsWhile those already indoctrinated against modern medicine tend to be a lost cause, it's always good to provide information for people who are still on the fence or uncertain!The worst anti-vaccine arguments2 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, here's ten of the things I hear most often about vaccines, why they're wrong, and some relevant links.
"There's MERCURY in them!"
The claim that vaccines are dangerous because they "contain mercury" is a deliberate misunderstanding of chemistry designed to mislead the public.
Mercury is an element in the organic compound, thimerosal, in much the same way that deadly, toxic chlorine is an element in the compound sodium-chloride, otherwise known as salt - the same salt you put on your food.
Raw elements can be dangerous in their pure form, but help build entirely harmless and even strictly beneficial compounds.
Thimerosal is used as a preservative agent preventing a vaccine from becoming contaminat
On TES elvesAlright can I just say how much I love the elves in the Elder ScrollsOn TES elves2 years ago in Personal More Like This
J.R.R. Tolkien popularized elves as these otherworldly, divinely beautiful creatures which sorta established the standard for the race in all modern fantasy that came after. They're nearly immortal, distant, and to me, plain boring. Then around comes Morrowind, the game that really made me fall in love with TES, its world and its lore!! The elves of TES have a long history, and each subrace has their own cultural identity. The elves no longer just sit in their Crystal ivory towers (well I guess some of them do) and sing to their trees or whatever - they're flawed, complicated PEOPLE, and extremely proud of who they are. The haughty Altmer, the hostile Dunmer from the Ashlands, the cannibalistic Bosmer, the late Dwemer and their scientific achievements…. when was the last time any elves modeled after Tolkien's work had this much cultural diversity??
I love the fact that Bethesda actually created some of the most inter
Contest deadlineYes, I'm fully aware of my lack of updates. I finally managed to get a job, and it's keeping me very busy. I promise I'll start updating the "Oblivion" comic as soon as I can.Contest deadline2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, I wanted to remind everyone there are two more weeks left until the end of the "Oblivion" contest. Not trying to put pressure on you, but I would kinda like for my first art contest to have more than one entry (though it will make the process of deciding the winner extremely easy).
Good luck everyone!
Based on the results of my most recent poll, it seems there IS enough people interested for an "Oblivion" related contest. So, I decided not to wait any longer before starting it.
As you know, I've done some small art-related contests in the past where you have to guess a certain thing about a picture I drew and you win a prize. But, this is my first "classic" contest, where the contestants submit their artwork.
Project 2013 - Get a Life!Hello my little deerlings! Some big news!Project 2013 - Get a Life!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first full week of year 2013 has started and this time has made think and reflect on my life.
The year 2013, will be probably one of the most important of my life so far. I will graduate officially soon which means I am no longer student but a grown up woman who needs to support herself. This means I need to find a job, get my own apartment... Yaya! AGAIN I have to move... Thankfully not too soon but... Most likely next Autumn. Yes very important year indeed. Time to become a responsible and productive member of society. Phhhthphlol.
This means I really need to start looking for myself. I have already updated my portfolio, made a new email address for work related business etc.... I might even start my own trade name! I have also FINALLY started to upload art to my personal DA account. That is an account where I only post my original art. I won't give the account name yet so please be patient. I will reveal it late

Want to see YOUR favourite Pokemon drawn by me? :DWell, then you should commission me!!Want to see YOUR favourite Pokemon drawn by me? :D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
That's right, I am open for Pokemon-commissions now. I decided not only to draw your favourite Pokemon, but also to feature one of your pictures in the description, which will be viewed by thousands of people! I wont take too many commissions by now (about 3 or so), so better get your offer now!
There are two possible commission-types:
You tell me, which Pokemon I should create a Pokedex-entry for and you can also tell me, if I should include some specific information or features etc. The price is set to 120-170 USD (depending on complexity), as these kinds of pictures cost me a lot lot of time and work! If you want me to include other Pokemon in the background (like other evolutions or other little Pokemon) it will add to the price.

Arise, Sir BaldrickThe well known Blackadder duo, Rowan Atkinson and Tony Robinson (the titular Blackadder and his grotty henchman, Baldrick) have made the honours list.Arise, Sir Baldrick2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Robinson is to be Knighted in recognition of his public and political service, and Atkinson is being granted a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) for his charity work.
A surprise, given that they're most well known for starring in a show that often mocked the monarchy. Though honours are recommended by her ministers, the Queen still approves them. Mind you, that she became a Bond girl during the 2012 Olympics does rather put to bed the question of her having a sense of humour.

Bleach OC CommunityNow that I'm back into the swing of things and I have projects on the table, commissions being drawn, and open text documents running the background as I write this, I wanted to put a message out there for the Bleach OC community. Well, some of it actually applies to ANY OC community, really.Bleach OC Community6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've spent the last five or so years on this site devoting most of my time to doing my thing in the Bleach OC/AU community. It started out small. I had gotten into Bleach after watching the episode where Ichigo and Renji first met and fought one night on Adult Swim, and all I could think about was cool it was that they were showing blood (Ichigo initially got his butt whooped). A few months later, I saw another episode and found myself completely lost, so I went online and streamed a bunch of it directly into my face until I couldn't blink anymore. That caught me up, and I found myself completely enthralled by the idea of the Gotei 13 and the genius behind making the art style so simplistic. I had
Curry ChipsI need to run something by you...because I am starting to think I have a medical problem which causes people who work in food shops to detest me.Curry Chips3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was in Matlock, Derbyshire the other day to watch a fancy light show. Was with the family, it was a nice evening, we went to a chipy shop for tea.
I walked into the chipy shop and knew almost immediately that there was only one thing I wanted...no fishy, no pies, no chickens...all I wanted was curry chips. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I see nothing wrong with wanting curry chips for tea. Many people eat curry chips. Curry chips are tasty.
I approached the chippy girl behind the counter, she asked what I wanted. I said curry chips. She nodded, got a plate and put lots of chips on it. It was all going very smoothly. She put the plate in front of me and said "I will just get the curry for your curry chips" and walked away.
She returned with a empty plastic pot and started to fill the pot with curry. I looked at her and said "don't worry, i'

Your toilets are really wide and close to the floor.
And you put sausage and egg on scones! I don't care if you call it a "biscuit". It's a scone.
It was great though. Went up the Empire State building, fed a squirrel, went to Comic Con, Overdid it with American McDonalds, threw up American McDonalds outside the subway station, bought loads of cool swag, and lived off hotdogs.
Now I'm super tired and ill. New York has defeated me.

I have been having cunneckshin troubles. To pass the time, I have been working very hard. ....Working very hard at re-watching the entire Death Note series.
I forgot how good it is. Goddamnit. It's so good. God. I'm obsessed all over again. I've even made some new Death Note comics. I'll be posting them soon.
Now, before I tell you a story about something that happened to me the other day, I want to show you this cool little thing I have found called formspring.me. What it is, it's a question/answer website. What you do is, you ask people questions...and then what they do is...is...they answer. ...Geddit?

What you can do is, you can ask me questions in this website. Then what I can do is, I can answer your questions. What this means is, my inbox will be less clogged up with questions, which also means that you are more likely to get a response from me. See how it works? Do you see? I can see, but can

Nothing amazing BUT I am going to work on a some sort of commercial for the pokeballs at some point (I hope x_x)
Also, joined a new group ^^ Check it out~
My subscription to DA currently ran out and now am investing into one myself since I'd like to promote my Pokeball's again. So, despite having the many jobs I do, they've been cutting hours so I have more time to pickup commissions and am in dire need of something productive to do.
HERE WE GO :'D I BE SELLING THINGS LIKE THIS.
A POKEBALL. IN FACT. MANY POKEBALLS.
YOU KNOW YOU WANT YOUR BALLS 8D
So here's some things to know about the pokeballs:
-Pokeballs are recommended to be used as props.
-They do not open up, due to how the plastic ball closes. Opening up the pokeball is not possible or it will fall apart.
-The pokeballs have a hook on the back so that you CAN latch them to you

The first thing I had to do was create a sample. What would the pages look like? What is a Killbook?
In the story, before Gabriel breaks out of Level-9, he is introduced to an "Agent-O, a character that gives Gabriel the documents needed to begin this revenge quest. Inside of the documents are bios and information on all of the characters Gabriel will meet/team-up with/or kill.
Well, I didn't just want to show boring documents, I wanted to add life
