Exposure, Getting Better, & Having the ChopsEXPOSURE & GETTING BETTER AT WHAT YOU DOExposure, Getting Better, & Having the Chops3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm only going off of my own personal experiences talking about these few things. (And I'm not specifically talking about ONLY dA here.) So take it with as many grains of salt as you can.
I've recently been asked questions like "How do I get people to see my work?", "Why am I not receiving commission inquiries?", "Why isn't anyone following my work?", "What can I do to get better?". Often, and I answered it before, the answer is as simple as this:
Create, as in, DRAW. PAINT. RENDER. SCULPT. You have to do develop a tolerance (or the obvious definition: LOVE) for creating if you want exposure and to get better. You have to LOVE the drawing or illustration that you HATE how it came out in the end. You have to ask yourself after every piece, what could I have done to do that differently. And you have to do this frequently.
Some folks come on the scene, post once or twice a week, and expect an audience to flock yo

Intro (grandfather): Hundreds of years ago, war broke out. Nobody really knew why then, just as much as we didn't know now. As far as we knew, Taris was Hyra's ally; whatever caused us to turn against them, we've yet to find out.
Now, understand that these two countries are both the biggest world powers. That means both countries have the resources, funds, and men to take on a war of this scale. But none of those really matter unless you have a strategy, and you need intelligence to have a strategy. That's why we called in Hyra's National Scientific Military Division. That group contains the biggest eggheads you'll ever see. And Carred Zelos was the most eggheaded of them.
The man was a bloody genius; you could ask him to build anything, and as long as it didn't involve

She is a cursed,wicked soul transferred into a plush because of Behemoth and soon joined forces with Hooler so they can destroy Virtus quicker. She's a mad scientist, or whatever you call it. In her anterior life, she used to make a murderer army and made experiment species from scratch,using various people and animal's body parts as well as their blood and organs.Now she makes pacts with people and takes their soul...only for fun.

Legend of Korra Finale [SPOILERS!]Wow I haven't written a journal in forever.Legend of Korra Finale [SPOILERS!]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I thought I might as well write a bit on my thoughts for the finale just because.
soooo SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS AHEAD
I loved a lot points in it but I was disappointed.
I was disappointed that they left so many questions unanswered such as what will happen to the nonbenders after they found out Amon was really a bender all along. The unrest of the people won't just simply fade away because Korra can give back bending powers. The nonbenders must be feeling extremely oppressed now that they know they were being conned and I hope they address that in the next season because that's really an important point that was forgotten about.
Also was disappointed that with the ending they didn't leave it as Korra without her bending but with hope that it will return in time. I always thought that what Amon does to the bender is mostly just a mental block and you need to look inside yourself and rediscover your inner element and your

Hello, vanilleass here for some updates! As you may have noticed, the group is ungoing some changes! I'm currently working on the front page while Spashai is working the backgrounds for the Gallery. Other than that, I'll also be making a new journal skin for the group and removing some journal entries. The VIP Membership program will be stopped as it is barely used so anyone who still has a running membership will be given 1000 ED. The Trading /Offers/Breeding journal will be separated into three parts soon to better organize each part. Since it does get confusing. shadowthecat971 has been working on coming up with new Challenges for everyone to earn more ED! ^^ Lastly, I'll be removing the Project Unknown Event Journals as we dont need them anymore.

"GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYYYYSSS
ONe of the BESSSTEST DAYS EVER
It first started with a disappointing moment when Jeremy Shada didn't show up in Starbucks in 54th street Broadway. then we started to just walk. Me and Lizzie went bonkerssss then disappointment again. bonkers and disappointment. So I decided to go to Toys R' Us to get ICE CREAM which ate most of my money, from Scoop R Us. Me and Epi then had to go back home. Suddenly! A wild ringing from Epi's phone with Via telling us to go back to Toy R' Us because Pendleton Ward and J.G. Quintel is with them. I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT. Epi and I quickly went back and freaked out. We made them sign our bookbags and a 4 blank pieces of paper. DDD I had a feeling if without my decision to get ice cream and my stomach growling, I bet we couldn't have met them at all." </i>
