Short... sweet.. and to the point.
You can't be a superstar drawing only pin-ups and covers like Adam Hughes unless you pay your dues first.
2DS and Affleck as BatmanGoodness, I go away for a little bit and the whole internet freaks out.2DS and Affleck as Batman1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, like many, I think the Nintendo 2DS is pretty stupid. But where others go on to criticize Nintendo and screaming bloody murder, I chose to just let it slide because the Nintendo 2DS isn't meant for me so I don't really care one way or the other.
See this is the problem I see with people who bitch and moan about Nintendo. They treat every single announcement like it somehow personally affects them, when usually it's an OPTIONAL thing they don't have to even deal with. Remember during the casual vs hardcore wars of the Wii era and people decrying Nintendo for adding the option to let Luigi play a level of NSMBWii if you failed too many times? Brilliant idea that ensures that players that work at it succeed and never see the option, and players that are duly frustrated after dying X number of times are allowed to still proceed but at a cost. But nope, that announcement was treated a
Why can't they be taken seriously?< RANT >Why can't they be taken seriously?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have been a fan of comic books for years and two of my favorite characters, one Marvel and one DC, are always getting the short end of the stick.
Power Girl has had 2 series, She Hulk had at least 3, and both were cancelled because they weren't considered popular enough.
I seriously think that the editors had no idea how create the comics for their supposed target audience.
They wrote books for a mainly female audience - FAILED ATTEMPT
Or horny fanboys - FAILED ATTEMPT
Then even tried to make them full-blown dramatic superheroes like their male counterparts - DOUBLE FAIL BECAUSE THEY AREN"T THEM
(Power Girl/Superman, She-Hulk/Hulk if you don't know your comic book characters)
Know what audience really appreciated these ladies?
Comic book fans who were tired of formulaic, predictable, massive world-changing story lines and heroes who have to make gut-wrenching decisions and miraculous saves.
These are people who wanted a fun

Wonder Woman Reborn
Supers V Wonder by JoshJ81
The collective fan community sigh of relief that a female director has been chosen to bring the Amazonian Goddess to life on the big screen has been echoing across the web ever since Monday’s announcement that Michelle McClaren had won that coveted crown. Here at DA HQ, we can’t help but imagine what Joss Whedon might have done with the character.
Pray no one involved in the Catwoman movie gets close to it.
dA adds new CSS attributes Skinners! Must read!Okay, as per the latest dA site update found here. CSS coders are now allowed to use 3 more properties to rock their journal skins.dA adds new CSS attributes Skinners! Must read!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The properties are:
Lets see what can we do with these new fancy stuffs!
What does these attributes do?
1) content--> it is used to insert generated content in your HTML (Journal body for DA). Don't worry, don't worry! I'll tell you what is this "generated" content!
2) counter-increment --> it is used to insert numbers (or counters) to sections or sub-sections. I'll explain what "sections" and "sub-sections" are don't worry again!
3) counter-reset --> it is used to reset the counters
All these 3 properties are generally interlinked and are used together. But the "content" property can be used alone and has some cool usage.
Clearing things upSo recently there has been some drama about the Hetalia models and the "no yaoi" rule. I just wanna clear this up. Only a few of the models are affected by this rule. I found this out by scouring the readmes, using my own knowledge of Japanese and a few professional translators, I came up with a list of models that are and aren't affected:Clearing things up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
America: YES (no R rated stuff)
England: YES (but no R rated stuff)
France/Germany/Austria/Prussia: YES if you follow the English rules (which means you don't edit them) But NO if you follow the Japanese rules.
Hong Kong: YES
China: YES (no R rated)
Norway: YES (no R)
Sealand: YES (no R)
Finland: YES (no R)
Estonia: YES (no R rated)
Russia: YES (no R rated)
N. Italy:YES (no R rated)
S. Italy: YES (no R)
Iceland: YES (no R)
Now to hana's rules. You all may already know that hana included two sets of rules with her models. One was an English readme and the other was Japanese

My Worst Tickling EVER!So, last night Germany duked it out with France... and won. My plan was to take my girl home, regardless of outcome, tie her up and tickle her until she went nuts. Thing is, we both drank; she got drunk and I was buzzed long enough to start falling asleep.My Worst Tickling EVER!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
We got back and I decided we should go to sleep instead... there was always time for tickling later and she was tired. Instead, SHE starts tickling ME! She got this evil Asian grin on her face, sat on my back (I was too tired to think anything of it), and she attacked me.
I went hysterical, and tried to cover up and fight her off. Problem is, I'm bigger than her, and was trying really hard not to throw her off. Also, I'm so more incredibly ticklish than I used to be, so the worse it gets the more I just fight - I don't mean to, and wish I could just relax... but it doesn't work that way! So, I suggested that she'd have to tie me up to keep me from hurting her.
She cuffed me to the bed, and things just went much farther than I'd ever

fair warning!i want to repeat again , this crap im making aint supposed to be taken too seriously!fair warning!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
it is a pervy erotic love comedy at its best.
sure , i am planning to dispel some misconceptions about bdsm, and relationships in general but bottom line is this. i am drawing this for my own fun. and i suggest you read it for your own entertainment.
it is free fluff, enjoy it for what it is.
reason why i am repeating this is that i have heard about people having such in depth conversations and analysi...whatever the plural of that is...
and i am amazed that they think i even remotely planned that stuff out so far ahead.
i do not... i am writing this completely on the go
pure fact of the matter is this
i got bored and artistically burned out 10 months ago
decided to try and recapture the last time i had the true flame
and apparently that was when i got offered to draw a bdsm fetish comic ,but then another much better offer was presented so i never drew
