Night Vale Fanart FeatureJust got back from New York City, where I was lucky enough to attend the live performance of Welcome to Night Vale's 2nd anniversary show Needless to say, it was awesome.

PE Prose Basics: Varying SentencesVarying Your SentencesPE Prose Basics: Varying Sentences2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
When I was in college, I took an early morning Anthropology class. I had to wake up at five to catch the bus. Ugh. Yeah, I'm not a morning person. But I did it. The first day, our instructor stood before us and starting reading from the textbook. Word for word. Completely monotone. I was asleep within ten minutes. The rest of the week was the same; arrive, begin listening to the instructor, pass out. I had to drop the class and get whatever refund I could, while I could. It was my worse class experience there.
Most people know that in public speaking, the person talking needs to vary their tone and speech patterns and such to hold their audience's attention. They need to have a rhythm. Otherwise, they'll end up putting the audience to sleep. The same applies to writing. If you use the same sentence length or structure continually, you'll be the literary equivalent of my instructor.

Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex MachinaOK, I think I've calmed down enough to write a review now. Spoilers ahead!Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex Machina3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, let's start off with what worked in the season finale. The animation was just...incredible, the action was exciting and sweeping in its scale, and Zuko's voice was reincarnated as General Iroh the goddamn determinator! which was actually kinda distracting, cause I kept expecting him to be like "I AM SO GOOD AT BEING GOOD!!. Hiroshi Sato showed his true colors as a hate-filled douchenozzle, and Asami showcased her usual class and determination when faced with truly shitty circumstances (on a side note, I've always had a hard time believing that Mr. Sato invented all those airplanes and mechas and stuff, because honestly, when we met him he kinda gave off a Henry Ford vibe, not an "engineering genius" vibe like that crazy eyebrow dude from A:TLA. But whatever, that's a minor point). And of course Naga was a badass...and according to tumblr, there are now people who ship Bolin x Naga. Just...why.

Shingeki no KyojinOh my God, you guys. I need to share my current addiction with you. Shingeki no Kyojin (literally, 'Advancing Giants', but translated into English as "Attack on Titan") is without a doubt the most amazing anime series I've seen all year. It's only 11 episodes in, so I can't vouch for how well it'll turn out, but so far it is spellbinding. The story is set in a world where the remnants of the human population live inside cities surrounded by enormous walls due to the sudden appearance of the Titans, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour humans seemingly without reason. The story centers around the life of Eren Jäger and his bff/stalwart protector/foster sis/possible secret admirer Mikasa Ackerman, whose lives are changed forever after the appearance of a colossal Titan brings about the destruction of their home and the death of Eren's mother.Shingeki no Kyojin2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Great Women of History 1 - HypatiaI was reading through my brother's high school history textbook today, when a thought struck me: I've thumbed through 30 pages, and I haven't seen a SINGLE woman's name. Over 50 percent of the population is female...so why the paucity of historical figures?Great Women of History 1 - Hypatia4 years ago in Personal More Like This
And thus I decided to start this mini-journal series, because there were plenty of amazing, influential women in the past. We just don't talk about them much.
Let's begin our story with one of the great minds of antiquity:
Hypatia, The Last Librarian of Alexandria
Imagine a library - the greatest anywhere on the whole surface of the Earth, charged with collecting all of mankind's knowledge. Imagine halls filled floor-to-ceiling with countless texts, perfumed with the stories and discoveries of people from the farthest corners of the globe. Such a library was founded some 300 years before the birth of Christ; it was part of the Museum of Alexandria, a vast research institute in modern day Egypt, which also inclu

As we haven't had one of those in a while (okay, understatement of the year), I thought we'd do a special this time. Normally, I give you 8 images and you have to use at least 2 - today, I'm going to give you 10 images and you have to use at least 3 (differenent ones, not three fire images)! And not just any stock images - these are the ones I used for my latest image Dragonsbane.
Your task is to create an image using as many of the same stock as you can, preferably with your outcome different from mine - before you say anything: I'm well aware that with the same stocks you can only do so much. If you like you can even try to do the same image (a little credit for the idea would be nice though), it is up to you. This is a challenge for you after all, and if you think you rather try to achieve the same result and work on your technique r
Odyssey Propulsion 3Maya has finally taken the knife to Paul. Will her incisions be surgical and freeing or murderous and final, an act of love or an act of vengeance?Odyssey Propulsion 33 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Whose story will Paul trust – Maya’s or Lysanna’s?
Is Paul really just a random victim or has there always been a special fate or predetermined bit of prophecy awaiting him which is now about to be revealed?
There are only three more chapters left, three delicious spaces to be filled in our attempt to achieve literary immortality… Well, at least, in our attempt to achieve creating a story to be told around summer campfires to scare the hell out of the new kids. What we need is a mind-melting fate or test to now be revealed to Paul, one which he must decide to accept or take flight from, one with worldwide consequences for the human race as well as Paul’s own singular soul, one with a real possibility of leaving only eternal madness as its legacy.

First of all: Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were as magnificent as they are supposed to be.
Secondly, thank you so much for all the incredible birthday wishes. It's moving and an honour to be embraced by so many talented individuals from across the planet. Thank you, once more.
Since I have barely replied any messages lately, I feel like I need to apologize for my absence. I have been very ill for 2 months, and I am finally (sort of) recovering since yesterday. For the same reason I haven't been able to draw very much, except for the last couple of days, so that's great! I am working on (old) commissions, finish projects, and start a new great project which involves lots of colour, uniqueness and realism drawing.
My only New Year's Resolution for 2013 is that, from now on, I will try to post something new at least once a week. I got some very interesting drawings to show you all.

Basic Art Elements: LineHerro people! I've been giving this much thought and have decided to include along with our "Common Misconceptions" series a series based in the basic art elements followed by the principals of design. There are seven basic art elements as follows:Basic Art Elements: Line2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The purpose of knowing this list and understanding each element is to help you make good decisions compositionally as well as help you with formal analysis. Formal analysis is an identification of the basic art elements in a work of art which is useful in critique and also understanding the artist's choices in composition. Ideally, a piece that we would call "successful" would have each of the seven elements here present in some way, as well as the principles of design. A lot of our choices in art making can be either arbitrary or intuitive. Neither are inherently bad, but making choices that have a sound base in these elements will help you with some of the compositional conundrums we artists fa
