Sipping tea with your Muse Only by fostering a facility with the vocabulary of your artistic medium of choice, can you begin to really free yourself to be open to being creative with it.Sipping tea with your Muse9 months ago in Personal More Like This
The size of that vocabulary is another matter, and that’s about growth, improvement and development. These are important as well, and intricately linked to creativity, in parallel (more on that in a future article). But first let’s talk simply about the genesis aspect of art.
Remember when you were in high school, doodling in the margins of your notebooks? Ballpoint pen and edges of blue-lined notebooks, with half an ear listening to the lesson of the day? There was a familiarity in that setting, and ease that you moved through when you sketched these throwaway doodles. Every once in a while you’d accidentally make one that you’d really like, and you’d save that scrap of paper with notes on American History melding into the lines of a drawing of your D&D charac
No Point?Sometimes I get a rather blunt and sneering criticism that there is no point in doing realistic paintings when one can always take a photograph.No Point?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And then I reply, 'well, then what's the point in having sex when one can always masturbate?'
Katsucon and Getting Beat UpHey y'all!Katsucon and Getting Beat Up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I'll be at Katsucon the weekend after this, for Friday only (just going down for the day with some friends). If you're awake at 9 am on Friday, you can catch me at the gazebo with the big Sakizou cosplay group! I'll be dressed as Alice, so just look for the Alice with the toy white rabbit. :3 Katsucon is in National Harbor, Maryland, at the fabulous Gaylord Hotel.
So that's all fun and good, but also I wanted to mention a thing on here about something I hear all the time. I get a lot of feedback from fans who, for reasons unknown to me, bemoan the fact that they wish they looked like me or were popular like me. Seriously. People say this. I can't count how many girls write to me and say they wished they were me, because they feel they're not pretty or outgoing enough. I have nothing but sympathy for young people, especially girls, who feel they aren't attractive or well-liked, or feel like outsiders in their school or social

NEW: Ultra Magnus (17 screenshots, not many since there was WAY TOO MUCH MOTION BLUR EVERYWHERE!)
I know Prime characters are difficult to draw due to their massive amount of details ect. ect. and Youtube quality is more or less very pixelated depending on who has uploaded episodes. So here's a bunch of screenshots for you to use as references. Only thing I ask is that don't share links directly to the images on photobucket, share this journal entry instead

9/11It seems a lifetime ago that something happened on this day to change the lives of so many people. It's easy to go about daily routine and mundane life and forget the trauma of the past. Yet in so many ways it still touches us now, even without us realizing it. Trawling through an airport today is very different to what it was over ten years ago. In some ways, that's a good thing. That we are more aware now of what aspects of the world can do to us, is a good thing. That we had to suffer such loss and destruction to humanity is, of course, not. September 11th 2001 was so big that nearly everybody has a story to tell. Nearly everybody knows somebody who knows somebody who knows someone who was there, or was nearby, or died. Even more people know a soldier that has since fought in a war born of the events of that day. Loss of life continues even now. For me, the horror was that my Grandparents were on the next plane flying into New York right after the attacks. They were grounded in Cana9/112 years ago in Personal More Like This

Borra essayI think one of the things that Korra illustrates beautifully is that what people want out of relationships differs from person to person, so I decided to write an analysis/musing on each of the semi-canon ships in the snarly tangle that is Avatar shipping.Borra essay3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So why does Bolin like Korra? And why doesn't she like him back? I think it comes down to the fact that right now they want different things in a romantic partner, but before I dive into that, I want to talk about an initial issue between them, one that seems to have already been worked out!
The initial issue: So why does Korra shut down Bolin within seconds of meeting him? He's handsome, friendly, and he's helping her! I think the problem is that A.) Korra is accustomed to people shamelessly hitting on her and B.) She really doesn't like it.
I came to this conclusion while watching her little upset in the bar with Tahno. She's just so confident! Yes, Korra is a confident person, but she's also easily flustere

She shared the moving story of her nephew with AlexanderPaupoff and me, and we instantly knew what we had to do.
from itisme1109 :
Breylon has Myoneurogastointestinal Disorder and Encephalopathy(MNGIE) which is a type of mitochondrial disease. Basically, all this medical mumbo jumbo means that his body doesn't produce enough energy to keep his body functioning. This lead to many other serious issues with Breylon's health including but not limited to seizures, brain deterioration, and intestinal failure. He is only 4 years old, and he has spent a large portion of his life in the hospital, most recently Dec. 2 through Dec. 19. This will be his last hospitalization since his parents made the difficult decision to move him to complete hospice care.
