Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.So... I've been downloading Devil May Cry OSTs And while listening to "I'll be your home" I realized something- About my Rants and Raves towards the new DmC:Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
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...

Bellows down over the plains
On a host of battle-worn ears it does fall
Pushing out through the thunder and rain
These men of the north they have suffered too long
The anger it swells in their veins
Of the spirited roars of lost warriors' songs
Distant echoes are all that remain
And my voice is my violence
Clear the sky's frozen tears
And no more we'll be silent
With this Sovngarde song in our ears
And we stand tall
Sons of the snow
We will not fall
Under these blows
For our hearts they are hardy
Our spirits are strong
And our voices are lifted into
This Sovngarde song
Conquer the anger and ravenous rage!
Make it a part of your power
Pummeling down let your bloodlust engage!
Under your force they will cower
Feeling the fury so pure and so bright
Breaking the bonds of surrender
Under the moon for our home we will fight
And we will die to defend her
And my voice is my violence
Clear the sky's frozen tears
And no more we'll be silent
Commission PaymentsHey, I've had a policy of taking payments in halves. Because of this, many of you have shortchanged me on my art. I'm missing over 300 dollars because of this. I try to be understanding, but this is making me a doormat. So from now on, I take all payment up front. My commissions speak for me, so I'm good for it.Commission Payments10 months ago in Personal More Like This

Interesting (if dark) theory relating to Pokemon!Although it is impossible to gain eggs of legendary pokemon (with the Creation Trio and Manaphy the only two exceptions, and even then, you need a mystery gift event to get them) in the games, it IS shown that Legendaries can have young in the anime (as seen with a mother Lugia and her baby Silver). I think I know why Lugia is so rare - The Pokemon Gorebyss.Interesting (if dark) theory relating to Pokemon!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Think about this, okay? Lugia are found in water-filled areas, and are even shown in the anime to live in the oceans (as seen in Pokemon 2000, the Power of One). As Pokemon reproduce with eggs, regardless whether or not the species is mammalian.
This means a Lugia with an egg stay with it after breeding for three reasons:
1-To incubate the egg
2-To protect it from thieves and ward off predators
3-To prevent it from being carried by ocean currents.
Whilst she is keeping the egg protected, the mother's body must be kept relatively still.
Enter a school of Gorebyss, which as stated in their R/S/E Pokedex entries, that they

SO anyway let's get this thing officially rolling! YEAH! Before work pulls me into the abyss again.
We're going to be working on silhouettes!

A silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single colour, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject.
"When an object's silhouette is difficult to make out, we have a tough time keeping track of what we're seeing. It's why so many comics and drawings use the visual shorthand out outlining figures and objects. The shades and values of an object are secondary to the basic shape when it comes to recognition. As such, effectively managing silhouettes is a vital tool for visual narratives." - Aaron Diaz

30 Day Fanart ChallengeSo this dA account is supposed to be my fanart account (Although for the most part it's just been my Despicable Me fanart account) but I always meant to do some fanart for other things I like too, so I'm creating this meme. It's basically for anyone who wants to do it, but I'm going to be doing it too.30 Day Fanart Challenge2 years ago in Personal More Like This
* Draw one piece of fanart every day. Can be as simple or as complicated as you like.
*Fanart can be of anything in books, movies, video games, manga, anime, television and comic books but each day has to be dedicated to something different, not the same book, movie, video game etc.
That's it, it's pretty open.

Sonic Generations Trailer (incl. free rant!)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZ6G2zyx-KQSonic Generations Trailer (incl. free rant!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I just watched the Sonic Generations trailer showing the first gameplay from the 20th Anniversary Game. My thoughts? Looks awesome! Being given the option to play with either the classic Sonic design in 2D or the modern Sonic design in 3D. Sounds like a great idea!
So there you go, nostalgiafags -- you got your wish. You have the option of playing as your precious classic Sonic design with his beady black eyes that you seem to bitch and moan and whine and complain over wanting so much.
Notice how I add design to the end of classic/modern Sonic. This is because I want to make it clear that I, at least, know both versions of him are the same character. But a lot of people seem to think they are seperate entities, for whatever reason I fail to understand. Then again, I fail to understand how they can have so much hate for the franchise, yet remain part of it. And also how they have such hatred for the modern Sonic design. Wasn't a pr

Describing your CharactersDescribing your CharactersDescribing your Characters2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When it comes to characters, we writers have a certain goal: to bring these people to life in the readers' imaginations. But for this to work, two things need to happen.
1) The character needs personality.
2) The readers need to be able to visualize the character as they read.
The first is achieved through characterization, while the second is traditionally thought to be achieved through physical description. What I’d like to discuss in this journal entry, however, is how physical description also needs to contribute to a character’s personality, and how it’s actually characterization, more than anything, that helps the readers visualize a character.
Take a look at the following example.
1) When I entered Mr. Jed's office, he stood and smiled at me. He had a big nose and short, brown hair. He wore a dark suit. I shook his hand.
What do you know about Mr. Jed from this br
