Axis Powers Hetalia: World at WarIt's finally official: on this year's Tracon (Tracon 8) cosplay group :iconRintamasuunta: will once again give its loyal audience something to watch and hear: a cosplay show Axis Powers Hetalia: World at War, telling us the tale of the two world wars, the most devastating series of conflicts the world had ever seen and which changed the balance of power in the world for ever. They defined the 20th century and gave us some of our greatest heroes - and darkest villains.Axis Powers Hetalia: World at War1 year ago in Personal More Like This

A Beginner's Guide :: Literary CommissionsIf you're a writer who's considering selling their skills, but not sure of how to set up prices or know what exactly you need to write in your information, look no further! Myself and imaginary-rose have complied a few tips to help beginning writers who want to start commissions but unsure of how to take the first step.A Beginner's Guide :: Literary Commissions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The Important Things
The biggest thing you need to consider before taking commissions is "How well can I write another's ideas?". This is a big thing because if you're not able to put your own into words that well, it may be challenging to put another's on paper. We suggest taking requests to see how well you work under a bit of pressure. If you can handle it well and get it done within a reasonable amount of time, you're a prime candidate to start selling your skills.
Know your strengths and weaknesses as a writer. In your information, you want to be 100% honest with your potential buyers. Don't sugarcoat your weakness or over emph

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die."
—Roy Batty, BLADERUNNER
Every time we open our eyes in the morning as each new day breaks, two worlds flow forth, each penetrating into the other, as the celestial portal gate separating them is once again raised. One’s inner world, of mind and being, pierces the outer world of light and raw data, seeking to hunt and gather mental sustenance. The outer world floods into our minds like a data tsunami, seeking to reconfigure the secret landscape of last night’s perfectly crafted dream state. Both worlds do battle to rearrange and make sense of the other. It is the yin and yang, by which we create and recreate the world – and the world invades and recreates each one of

My photos used again and again and again XDHi.My photos used again and again and again XD2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have to say this whole situation with illegal reposting is getting REALLY annoying and bizzare
Just today, I reported three images on Facebook, posted by three different sites. I have to thank Facebook for removing it almost immediately, but the bad feeling still stays.
Then I got back to DA and found my photo of wolves reposted by some 13 years old kid. I told the girl that rules of dA do not allow her to post non original stuff - she blocked me a posted a crying journal "I did not steal anything, my brother took those photos in the wild and allowed me to share them". Yeah, definitely, that's why she posted my photo so I reported her and DA was incredibly fast too - they removed the photo in 10 minutes (TEN MINUTES!!!) after I submitted the report. Very impressive, DA, thank you!
On the other hand - one funny situation. Yesterday, a wonderful drawing of a white lion got a DD - author used my photo of Haldir as a reference, but he forgot to credit me. Some of my watcher

society is sexisthttp://www.fox4now.com/story/14821011/11-year-old-stripped-naked-bullied-on-videosociety is sexist4 years ago in Personal More Like This
"To inform you lazy people(though it would be worth your while to read the short article), An 11 year old boy was pinned at the neck and stripped naked by two middle school girls, which basically makes it a misdemeanor battery charge, and more. The boys mother called the police, but they didn't take it seriously until fox started asking questions.
The main issue is that the girls are probably gonna be left of easy and only get a slap on the wrist. While if it was 2 middle school guys doing that to a 11 year old girl (just flipped situation) they would have been given a nice spot on the sex offenders register and time in juve, essentially ruining their lives..
This is basically double standards at play here, and i want to know what the rest of you think about all of this? Should the girls be sent to juve and put on the sex offenders watch list for what the charges they would get?
In my opinion, it seems

I will attempt to NOT ramble on this thing because that is definitely a thing I do.
Recently I was asked about how I made the prop for my Karkat cosplay--the Homes Smell Ya Later--so without a long preamble, I'll just kind of outline it here as best I can. Fortunately, I took a fairly decent crop of progress pics!
Materials used in making this prop:
plywood 2 chunks of 1/2 inch thick MDF (Medium-Density Fiberboard) about 5 in. long and no more than 2 in. wide wood glue four 3/4 inch screws wood putty wood filler matte acrylic paint acrylic sealer (it's one of those little bottles that people ignore that is sold with regular paint) Mod Podge Hard Coat (purple jar) matte acrylic varnish

ETA: I REALLY WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOU GUYS THINK ABOUT AN IMPORTANT PART OF BENDERSTUCK
I've had a couple comments about the fact that Feferi is still a troll and Rose is, well, white. From the beginning, I was concerned with that too, to be honest. I had a trade-off to make: change the appearances of ALL of the kids (trolls AND humans) to fit each of the cultures, or change no one's appearances and keep them 100% recognizable. It would be strange to make the trolls human and assimilate into the Avatar cultures while leaving the human kids white. For Rose, it'd be more than just changing her skin tone a bit; her hair would need to be darkened too and her eyes would need to be blue.
At first, I thought about making the trolls human, etc, but I remembered that many Homestuck AUs like 50'sstuck feature the trolls with their alien appearances in rather. . . human settings. And so, I thought it could be acceptable in this case as well. Honestly,

10 ARTIST TIPS from yours truly.10 DETAILED ARTIST TIPS - From my own view (related to deviantART):10 ARTIST TIPS from yours truly.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am too lazy to write a "long" version so I'll throw out tips from time to time. I have been asked for advice many times so here's some advice now! Follow my facebook to get more info!
1. Once you have a "very good" customer base, try putting into your commission agreement that you do not accept rushed ordered and can take as long as you'd like.
This is risky because you're not making promises to your commissioners. In order to "keep" my customer base, while still not putting pressure on myself, I "reward" patient commissioners by simply doing detailed coloring. The secret to having this agreement be successful is making your final drawing "worth the wait", however long that may be for you is your decision.
2. Time management & pricing. This is just something I do, I spent around 5-10 minutes roughing sketching a comm. I do not spend
