Doujinshi Scans - Professor LaytonHere's a list of doujinshi scans I have for the Professor Layton series. I have the most doujinshi for this series, so I gave it a page of it's own to make them easier to find. If you can't view a page (i.e. the page gives as "you do not have permission to view this" page when you click the link) it just means that the doujinshi contains mature content so had to be marked as unsafe for minors. If you want to see any of the mature doujinshi send me a note either here or on LJ and I'll give you the links.Doujinshi Scans - Professor Layton3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Say hi to SenshiStock.com!
This is a really simple, small site to start but I have bigger plans for it! For now, it's a place where you can go to purchase advance downloads of unreleased stock, or to buy the USB drive. It's also a central hub for SenshiStock social media. The biggest of thanks goes to Steve Forde for his quick implementation of the site!
There are four packs available for advance download right now: Bird's Eye, Fans, Monster, and the collab shoot with Sinned-angel-stock (more about that one below). The packs will rotate throughout the year allowing you access to different types of stock.

Poetry Basics: EmotionsEmotions in poetryPoetry Basics: Emotions1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Writing, at its very base, is communication. We write to communicate — with someone else, with ourselves — when we write, we arrange words in a manner that is intended to be read. This is very important because, no matter what or how you write, this one basic fact never changes. If you get stuck at any point, you can come back to this sturdy foundation. I am writing to communicate; what do I want to communicate?
Often, the answer is emotions: how you feel, or how you want your reader to feel. As Gregory Corso wrote, "You must feel! It's beautiful to feel!"
We all feel, but how we express our feels is a matter of perspective. If we are too flippant with our choice of words, our readers will think we are shallow. If we are too brooding and deliberate, our readers may find us incomprehensible. Finding a balance takes work and dedication.
But that work and dedication is what distinguishes

Poetry Basics: BrevityBrevity: n. the quality of expressing much in few words.Poetry Basics: Brevity1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
When I was in tenth grade, I took my first literature course. It was a six week exploration of poetry. The first poem my teacher showed us was Ezra Pound's In a Station of the Metro:
The apparition of faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.
I, in all of my 16-year-old knowledge of the intricacies of what poetry is, informed my teacher that those two lines were not a poem.
"You don't think so?"
"No. They don't rhyme, they are just one metaphor, and did I mention they're only two lines?"
She sure showed me.
Importance in Poetry
Pound's poem is considered such a great work because he inserts several layers into a single image. Using only 13 words he evokes an entire painting within the reader's mind. You can hear the sounds of the trains, see the fatigue of a mother wrestling with her cranky toddler,

Emotions in Writing and How to Portray ThemLit Basics WeekEmotions in Writing and How to Portray Them6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Wow, yes, emotions; they stir us, they sometimes rule us.
For your written world to come alive this critical element must be rightly imparted into your work. Your character’s emotional state is something that needs to be grasped in meaningful ways in order for a reader to begin caring about what is happening to them. Likewise, poets who write verses that do not express an emotional range will have lines that fall flat and lifeless on their intended readers.
Emotions are not one dimensional – each has a broad range of expression. For example, anger can be experienced anywhere from a mild annoyance, prompt bitter retorts, or become a barely-contained, seething cauldron; long before exploding into an unbridled rage. Often, intense feelings move through several stages all in one event.
Additionally, emotions seldom appear that are pure in their source; celebrated author and counselor H. Norman Wright, MFCC, CTS describes what mos
Romancing Romantics Poetry Contest:iconflyingheartsplz:Romancing Romantics Poetry Contest1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Valentine's Day is soon approaching, and what better way to kick off the season of love than with a poetry contest? A romantic poetry contest. But! Instead of writing a poem to your secret admirer or your true love expressing just how much they mean to you or how your heart yearns for them, you'll be writing it for someone else: a Romantic poet.
For this contest, you'll have a choice between any of the Romantic poets (from any country of your choice) to write a romantic poem to. You can find a list of Romantic poets HERE!
Please keep in mind when writing: the specific poet's style, themes, and/or life to make it more interesting. We want these poems to be written for them, not just generic love poems with their names slapped on. So, the more references there are to the poet, the more bonus points for you! Your poem can either be written fro

Welcome, one and all, to my latest contest journal! Did the title catch your attention? $30 is a lot of smackaroos, ain't it? Now that I have your attention, I'd like to direct you to the contest details in question.
The objective of this contest is to draw a book cover for my novel-in-progress, Bialo Lassedim.
The title translates to "Voice of the Demons". In this cover, I would like the main characters, Cresil and Ivo. There's a couple of situations for you to choose from to draw the cover in. First, let's give you a bit of information about the characters so you know what kind of people they are before you draw them.

That was a joke.
Your story must center around the development of a relationship between two entities.

Enter if you dare . . .
Ombre-De-Nuit is a high-level "dark" digital group here on dA. The administrators of the group are darkly pleased to present you, our members, with our latest challenge: The Brothers Grimm meet Burton.
Your task, should you dare to undertake it, is to twist a Grimm Fairytale into a Burton-style Nightmare.
You can find examples of Grimm fairytales here. Some popular ones include Rapunzel, Hansel & Gretel, and Cinderella. You can choose one Grimm fairytale to twist; it's fine just to depict a scene of your choosing or make one up on your own. But, the fairytale should be at least somewhat recognizable, and it must have elements that are Burtonesque.
Think about what Burtonesque means. What is the undercurrent between Sweeney Todd, Beetl

The Music of Language: ProsodyPoetry is the art of using language as a tool to create both visually, atmospherically and phonetically coherent pieces. Imagine an unsung music that flows through our everyday lives, syncopating our every emotion and pulses through our every sentence. The careful wordsmith is someone who is attuned to this song, the music of the language. It’s the melody that runs through the lines as we hear them read out loud and the rhythm that resonates through every sentence that we utter. The name for it is prosody. Prosody is the underlying song that lives in any given language. And it is the basis of foot, meter and rhyme.The Music of Language: Prosody1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
1. What is prosody?
In linguistics, prosody is the rhythm, stress and intonation of speech. It reflects both the feature of the language as well as the mood and intent of the speaker. Therefore the "melody" of Italian sounds drastically different from that of English, which is again different fr

How to Plot Like a GrimIn ten simple steps, you too can plot like a Grim.How to Plot Like a Grim2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
1. Get an idea
This can be a brief snippet of dialogue. Or an ending that just seems perfect. Sometimes it's just the concept of what I'd like to see a character go through. I write that down. Usually it doesn't see the cold light of day for at least a couple months, but when I've thought about it long enough and can't seem to get the idea out of my head, that's when I sit down and start plotting things out a bit.
2. Work out the basic plot
Now that I've got the idea, I need to work out the basic details. But how do I do that? Well, I write it down. Then I think about the different angles to get to that idea. I write those down. If it's dialogue, who's talking? What do they feel? Who are they talking to? If it's a snippet of a scene, who's in the scene? Why are they there? What are they doing? What's going on outside of that scene?
Notes on Co-WritingNotes on Co-WritingNotes on Co-Writing10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
verb: co-write [kəʊˈrʌɪt]
gerund or present participle: cowriting
write (something) together with another person.
Successful co-writers often go under a pseudo name, such as Nicci French, Tania Carver, Scott Mariani.
We're not going to talk about one off poems or stories, we're getting into the nitty gritty of long term co-writing. By this, we mean writing together for 6+ months.
The number one question we get whenever we mention co-writing is:
How does it work?
For us, it starts with finding someone who you can be friends with.
Don't go looking for someone who you only want to write with. Of course it's important that you both share a passion for what you're about to start, BUT there's a reason most co-writing duos are married or close friends. It's important that you have
