Frequently Asked QuestionsI get asked many questions and it can be hard for me to answer them all, so I have compiled a list of questions which I'm often asked in the hope it is of interest to some of youFrequently Asked Questions2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Where did you learn?
I've taught myself. My Secondary (High) School art teacher told me 'cartoon are not art' and so I had no interest in perusing 'art' classes any further. At about 13 I began to draw every day, less studying, more drawing what came to mind, creating characters and worlds and getting my thoughts and feeling onto paper.
I joined deviantART at 15, and the feedback and critique I've gained through sharing my art online has helped a lot in my improvement. I wasn't born with any 'gift', unless you count functioning hands, I learned through practice. My early drawings are just as bad as everyone elses (I keep them as proof) I a

At the beginning of the week, the dT team worked on improving our internal development tools to increase efficiency. Then, on Wednesday, we let any staff members at the retreat pitch fun and exciting ideas for deviantART features that could be built in two days. After each feature idea was pitched, everyone from dT chose which projects they'd like to work on. Throughout the year, engineers primarily work on projects that are assigned to them, so sometimes it's important to turn the tables and let them choose projects in which they're most passionate and excited about.

Please spread the word, I am very annoyed about this and believe I should be ASKED to use my artworks before just using them for their own purposes. I find this very disrespectful and I feel all artists should know about this. So PLEASE spread the word and tell artists.

I deeply regret to inform you all that I received some bad news.
*GASP, did someone give you criticism?
The Admins of the Creepypasta wiki have finalkly decided to delete Sonic.exe offa the wiki, on the grounds that it was "badly written" and "had too many cliches" and "was a bad example of what should be a creepypasta".
So.... what's the issue? They have every right to remove your story. It was overly-clichéd, it was poorly structured and it didn't try to go beyond the cliches that plague every media-based Creepypasta. The real shocker is that your story wasn't discarded sooner.
Here we go....

Games You Should Really Try Part Ibecause you probably haven't.Games You Should Really Try Part I1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So a while back I started making a list of my top 100 video games of all time, which in hindsight wasn't a good idea when i was in the midst of trying new games and discovering games like To the Moon. So, instead I'll give you a bunch of really under the radar games that I've practically obsessed over at one point or another.
The Hobbit (GameCube; PS2; Xbox): If you enjoyed the books, or the recent movies you'll probably like this because this is one of the better licensed games. It really feels like you're playing through The Hobbit and it follows the book fairly well, although it takes many divergence because you know... video games. If I had to lodge a complaint about the game is that the levels are long, like really long, although saving points aren't a problem. And yeah, that might be another problem, on the GameCube at least, this game's saving requires more blocks than Animal Crossing and it will not fit on the memory
I need crazy video game challengesRight now I'm constructing a video game bucket list, containing things beyond just beating the games (in most cases. When it comes to games like Zelda II or Dark Souls, I don't think any extra challenge is needed). These challenges can be built into the game, like completing the item catalog, getting the biggest possible house, and having a perfect town in Animal Crossing New Leaf or they can be self-imposed, like beating Majora's Mask without using the song of time once after you get the Deku Mask (yes, it's possible).I need crazy video game challenges9 months ago in Personal More Like This
It needs to be possible without glitches. Though you don't have to use the game mechanics, it needs to be possible to do.The difficulty can vary from finding the first easter egg ever in Adventure to... beating the Elite 4 with a Magikarp.Sometimes the game just hands you the goal, in Recettear, complete the item encyclopedia; complete the gallery in Wind Waker.Games can have multiple goals. So far, I've come up with two: create

This journal was submitted yesterday. As I assume she hasn't deleted any of her pictures, as long as you have links to them, you can still view them. Same applies to this journal.
She's said she was going to leave forever numerous times before, but, she never left. She wanted to keep all the popularity she once had.
And the only true reason she ever acted like this was due to her fans, defending her, even when she didn't want them to defend her. Though she never cared for her fans, she was still a good person. I just know it. Deep inside. She just didn't want to let it out. She was too stubborn to let that feeling out, and be who she once was.

So, I saw Breaking Dawn... (A Review)Let me clarify something before I say anything on this. I am still opposed to much of the content of this film and the series. Much less the fact that this is in two parts when it was clearly padded to achieve that end and the movie viewing has only strengthened that.So, I saw Breaking Dawn...

However, for what it was worth in a midnight showing...I actually enjoyed myself. Here's why, and consider this a middle-man perspective/review. All opinions are my own.
The Good -
- Early scenes before the wedding - When the main actors finally started exchanging some funny dialogue instead of acting so emotional or tortured, the feel of the series quickly turned around. The first thing I was wondering however was why this wasn't promoted as the tenor of the series earlier in.
- The Wolf Debate - OK, this was good because I was laughing my a** off at how silly this came out to be. The cheesy dialogue like, "I am the grandson of ______ Black. I was

An Extreme Amount of IgnoranceGet ready for a lot more of this garbage reporting: http://www.ktvb.com/news/Dog-injured-by-hunters-trap-near-Bogus-Basin-136858078.htmlAn Extreme Amount of Ignorance4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Besides the huge Appeal to Emotion fallacy, the awful media spin on trapping is what's really grinding my gears. After seeing people repost the news article with their horribly biased opinion about the situation made me want to construct a logical argument for why the dog owner was completely at fault here, not the trapper.
First of all, what part of trapping season do dog owners NOT understand? I know someone from a rural community in New Mexico, and when he traps he ties an orange ribbon above where all of his traps are set. This is understood by everyone that lives in his area. Trapping is not a crime, in fact it is part of a bigger science (how do you think they collar wolves?) The story is a complete lie to shed a fabricated perception of trapping to the urbanites. You see it ramped up lately all across the country. There is a major
