Culpeo babbles: German Stereotypes(How to make your movie villain more badass?Culpeo babbles: German Stereotypes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Easy. Make him German. 8D)
You probably know this situation: You need to do serious stuff, work on very important things, or simply get your shit done. Then you turn on the scourge for mankind a.k.a the Internet because you're a master of procrastination and want to look up something. Just for a moment.
After reading a Wikipedia article about sharks, two hours later you end up with a site about how to build bombs. Or watching cute animal videos. Most likely both.
With me, it were neither sneezing pandas nor bombs but Disney songs on Youtube. From time to time i just feel the urge to cherish some good old childhood nostalgia again and what would be better for that than watching openings of the old tv-shows you loved or the ever popular songs from Disney, Dreamworks and friends? Disney songs in particular are perfect for that.
After a while and because i mostly see the links on the right, i continue with Disney songs sung in other languages fo

Basements and Dice Playing Dungeons And Dragons Is Not What It Seems
Dungeons and Dragons Antheia AnRaza II
When you think Dungeons and Dragons, you may be inclined to picture a dark basement with broody, antisocial teens whispering spells and incantations over leather-bound tomes.
Perhaps D&D owes its cultural notoriety to the religious backlash against it in the 80s, as well as the over-the-top depiction of fantasy gaming and its players

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,
Women ArtistsThe other day, I attempted to put together a huge list of some professional and semi-pro women artists over on my tumblr, because it seems like too often women get overlooked when it comes to being honored and recognized. This year, I was incredibly honored to be nominated for a Hugo award in the Best Professional Artist category, but I was a little shocked to find out there hadn’t been another woman nominated in that category since Rowena Morrill in 1986. That’s more than a little ridiculous, considering there are so many women artists out there who are all amazing, who offer unique points of view and design solutions, and who need more visibility and recognition. While putting this list together, I was really excited to find tons of new artists I'd never heard of before.Women Artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Dath and Natalie
Two free spirited, adventurous thieves, who just trust each other that much to know: neither of them will stab one another in the back for the pickings.
*Dath: A silent, but determined man with bad manners. Looks like he's calm and level-headed, no one thinks how easily he gets angry.
*Natalie: Good-temepred, optimistic woman -she smiles and laughs a lot. She loves chatting and speaks much in monologs -fraying Dath's nerves. Her acting is great, enjoys manipulating others.
'For exposure' - a warning to artistsI ran into this Twitter page a few days ago. It's a collection of real comments that artists get all the time asking them to work for free, or, as these people often prefer to say, "for exposure".'For exposure' - a warning to artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
People like this are usually trying to guilt-trip artists into taking on massive projects for no pay, claiming it'll be good advertisement or that they'll get paid once the project becomes a success. The truth is, the chances of getting picked up by a major studio are extremely small. The so-called free advertisement the artist may or may not end up getting is usually not worth the effort.
Just to give you a taste of the disrespect for an artist's time and energy that some people have, here's a choice quote:
"Need Animator-I have a story that's 4 seasons long, 10 episodes each. looking for maximum quality. No pay. I will warn that I am very picky"
Does this person even realize the amount of work that goes into animation? Depending on the

~~The Royalty Contest~~
It's fast-approaching Christmas, which is a time that a lot of people enjoy. In the spirit of things, we wanted to run a Christmas contest, but, by scanning over DeviantArt and other groups, we saw that, naturally, a lot of other groups had the same idea. We don't much fancy running a contest that's almost identical to other contests on DA – a simple Christmas-themed pony contest is something that you can take part in elsewhere. We also realised that, if we did do yet another Christmas pony contest, we'd likely see a lot of people submitting a single contest entry to several similarly-themed contests. It would be the natural thing to do, and so we wouldn't necessarily blame anyone if t
Calling all the Fallen Angels!Okay. So I just got the best idea ever.Calling all the Fallen Angels!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
To appreciate Black Veil Brides for all they have done, from making amazing music to making inspirational quotes and all that fun jazz, I figured something we all could do.
Here my plan: Make a video or collage (mix up of pictures) of all us Fallen Angels/Bridesmaids and Ushers and send it to them. (Andy's and Jake's dads too, that way theres a better chance of them seeing it.)
Collage would be a lot easier, but then again theres not as much space, but a video might take a bit longer. It depends on how long it'll take to get enough people to make a whole video with the duration of the song.
Take a picture of yourself looking as much as yourself as possible, not just BVB attire but stuff you actually like to wear. Band shirts, tank tops, long sleeves, skirts, jeans, 10,000 bracelets and necklaces, anything. If you want to (advised) hold a sign (or caption over the picture) "We are the fallen angels" or the BVB symbol/star. Remember, LOOK LIKE YOUR
The Mary Sue DilemmaWritten for :iconthe-bards-college:The Mary Sue Dilemma2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm pretty certain all of us know the term "Mary Sue". It is one of the most dreaded labels our original characters can earn. But what exactly is a Mary Sue?
Is she an unlikable protagonist?
Is she poorly written?
Is she cliched?
Is she an author avatar?
Is she an idealized character?
Is she a power fantasy?
Is she infallible?
Is she the center of attention?
Can a Mary Sue be male?
Can a Mary Sue be a canon character?
What exact combination of these traits are needed to make a character a Mary Sue?
The term originated back in 1973 in a parody Star Trek fanfiction called, "A Trekkie's Tale." I had never read it before tonight and was shocked to find how short it was. I highly recommend taking a minute to read it before continuing here.
Over time, Mary Sue stopped referencing the specific character and became notoriously attached as a term meaning unrealistic self-insertion wish-fulf
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 Love2 years 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

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...

Cleaning and Caring For Your JewelryHere are some cleaning instructions for any of my hand crafted goods made from sterling silver, gold, copper, or brass.Cleaning and Caring For Your Jewelry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The best way to clean fingerprints, smudges, and other minor surface grime off your jewelry and gemstones is with a soft, lint-free cloth like someone would use to clean their glasses. This is the safest, easiest way to clean your jewelry.
If you've got a quite a bit of dirt or grime on your jewelry, the best way to clean it yourself is with a soft toothbrush and dawn dish soap under running water. Be sure to plug your sink!!! when you're done, damp it dry with a soft, lint-free cloth. If you have one of my engraved pendants, do NOT use this method to clean it! You will scrub away the antiquing I used to darken the recessed areas.
Over time, when wearing your jewelry, the finish will get scratched up a bit. It can't be helped. The best way to get rid of minor scratches is with a polish cloth. Polish cloths can usually be purchased at a local jewel
