Why I Cannot Stand Axis Powers HetaliaEDIT 5/11/2014: Guys. GUYS. STAAAHHHP. This journal is fucking FIVE YEARS OLD, and that's about how old all of you are acting. I would say sorry for ~ruining your life~ by venting about your favorite sparkly animoo, but I'm not. And if your whole identity is really tied up in a fucking fandom, you have serious issues. Seek help. Disabling comments when I can, because whether you're trying to prove some stupid point to me, defend me, or logic this out with me, you're all equally retarded. Go home, boys and girls, show's over!Why I Cannot Stand Axis Powers Hetalia6 years ago in Personal More Like This
So a few friends have been asking me lately what I've got against this inexplicably popular series that seems to have popped up recently called Axis Powers Hetalia. They love it... and I HATE it. Hate it hate it hate it!!! But the mere fact that it fills me with boiling rage everytime I think about it is not a good enough reason for them, so I guess I'll try to piece together why it pisses me off so very much. -I'm- not even entirely sure why I d

So I stumbled upon this quote quite a while back and it’s been one of the ones that has kept me pushing through even through the toughest times, so I thought I’d share it with you guys to keep you all motivated as well. If you want something to happen in life, you’ve got to make sacrifices, there’s really hardly a way around it. You may need to go to extremes, and if you are willing to, there will be so many rewards to reap at the end, you just have to keep pushing. Doesn’t matter what anyone thinks - whether it’s your family, friends, boyfriend/girlfriend, etc. - you must do it for you. This is in no way shape or form a selfish thing to do. If anything, anyone who is wanting to stand in the way of you and your dreams is the selfish one.
I’ve gone through many ups and downs throughout my artistic progress, as I’ve mentioned before, and I’m sure anyone who is passionate about their dreams could re

passion into your profession. But there is a way of measuring your chances on being
able to get work and eventually sustain a living from it.
Accepting commissions or freelance for low payment won't help you. You can think any penny counts, but it will lower the worth of your work and damage the market.
How to measure that you are ready?
You probably have high goals, but they are usually not your first step. You must search out the clients who can be that first step. Often found in the card game industry, book cover illustrations and smaller game company's.
Look at the artwork shown by a company such as the card game company: Fantasy Flight games. Compare your skills with the average of their artworks. If it matches yours, you will have a chance. However, keep in mind that those artworks had been done in a limited timeframe, usually within 12 hour

"I'm going to try to disipate some doubts about CSW, I know you have been waiting a long time so I'll try to answer the most common questions:
First and most important is that the project has not been cancelled. We started to work professionaly and we have been expending a lot of time
without developing fully CSW to improve ourselves in other areas and taking a break doing different kind of things.
The truth is that we still have a lot of things about CSW that we haven't showed yet and some day will be shown;
my advice is that you just keep going on with your lives and someday you will find some update, but for the moment there isn't none.
Nothing of this can be published on the main site because we lost access to it a long time ago, we talked about that time ago. Also we can't release a first version
and then update it with downloable characters because the core of the game is not done, you might think it is by the videos, but it's

DD for some of you :)Hi!DD for some of you :)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
At first, there is a new kiriban: catch my 955 555 pageviews and send me a printscreen via note as a proof to win a feature
No feature for animal cruelty or porn, thanks for understanding.
At second, no, I did not get any DD (only one - bur many years ago buhhehehhehe )
But I have suggested many deviations for DD and I was disappointed when I got no reply and those deviations have not been accepted I think some of those artists created absolutely incredible work and they definitely deserve more attention.
Today, I will show you some of the deviations I have suggested (or plan to suggest) for DD, but which have not been noticed or accepted by admins, which made me really sad and disappointed. DA has some rules for featuring a deviation as a DD, it says that suggested artist should not have a DD yet, it should not be very famous artist and it should include some info about a subject in the descriptions. Those artists followed the rules, but their art has not

On Writing - Making LoveThe following tutorial is for :iconthe-bards-college: It is of a mature nature and may not be intended for everyone.On Writing - Making Love1 year ago in Personal More Like This
One of the many (well, primary really) reasons I read fanfiction is for that steamy sex scene. I scour FF for the M rated fics that will detail the primitive dance done since the beginning of time. I will usually read the "plot" while making a "let's hurry along" gesture so we can finally have our protagonists naked and in each other's arms. Sometimes I mutter, "Ain't nobody got time for that," and just skip ahead, eager to see what form forbidden love will take now.
And then it's a coin flip on whether it's enjoyable or not.
Well, more like a roll of the dice. Looking for boxcars.
Love scenes are frequently dreaded among new writers. I often compare them to combat scenes – you need at least two people grunting and sweating while thrusting at each other repeatedly. How do you do that and make it interesting?
First off, it is not required to have two charac

It's almost school soon and would like to share some thoughts from a certain exchange with a fellow artist friend!
Now I saw that this friend of mine nabbed an internship at Disney so I asked her what would it take to get an internship there.
So she told me that (while it's somewhat a sad truth) most artists that get in the industry (which can be any industry) get these positions through the connections they have made in and out of school. Which can make sense since if a person knows your work is good, and you are pleasant to work with, it is easy to get a good recommendation from that guy!
She then told me to not be afraid to email/message your idols especially with your portfolio as long as you are friendly and polite!
I am writing this right now to tell you to not be afraid to make connections. And it doesn't have to be in the industry you plan on joining! Make friends with future doctors and lawyers! While it is indeed common knowledge for some, I real

There's Nothing we can do. Nothing
But thats okay- Because they can't simply come in and take away the Dante, the emotions, the love, the hate, the frustration of being stuck on Vergils last battle and finally screaming "TAKE THAT YOU WHORE!!!!" at the screen at the end of the game!!!! No. They can't.. they can't take what they've already given us.
This new game is much like a cold: All we have to do is lay back, relax and it'll go away.
I can't wait for it to come out- perhaps if not many people enjoy it they may realize how many are outraged.
I complain not. Its a good thing I'm not a Devil...
Because I'm bawling. Crying. Sobbing. All and any derivitives for the tears inside me. To be a nerd and quote the song I'm sobbing to: "The tears inside me calm me down"
Thinking about that reminds me of DMC3's last few cutscenes...

If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!
Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.
So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.
