Romancing Romantics Poetry Contest:iconflyingheartsplz:Romancing Romantics Poetry Contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Valentine's Day is soon approaching, and what better way to kick off the season of love than with a poetry contest? A romantic poetry contest. But! Instead of writing a poem to your secret admirer or your true love expressing just how much they mean to you or how your heart yearns for them, you'll be writing it for someone else: a Romantic poet.
For this contest, you'll have a choice between any of the Romantic poets (from any country of your choice) to write a romantic poem to. You can find a list of Romantic poets HERE!
Please keep in mind when writing: the specific poet's style, themes, and/or life to make it more interesting. We want these poems to be written for them, not just generic love poems with their names slapped on. So, the more references there are to the poet, the more bonus points for you! Your poem can either be written fro

Exploring Art 60: Always Success?I've been sitting here all morning, twisted about with nerves on a new venture that I'm about to undertake. Do I tell you all about it before it happens, and risk public failure if I do not succeed? Or do I keep quiet and wait until I have a triumphant success to shout to the rooftops?Exploring Art 60: Always Success?11 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a question that plagues me every time I work on something new, and is one of the reasons I was so hesitant to even DO kickstarter. What if I fail? What if I post up this project and you all watch me crash and burn? There is nothing I hate more than public humiliation and failing in public would be emotionally devastating. So it took me weeks and weeks to do a simple kickstarter and build up the nerve to post it.
It occurs to me, that part of why I feel this way, is that myth that if you are a 'real' artist, then everything you do must be a success. Everything you touch turns to gold, every sketch, every doodle is priceless. You cannot fail, for you are a master at your craft and even the worst of

Iiiiit's contest time! All original literature welcome.
This is a speculative fiction contest—the technology requirement could cover steampunk, 'John Carter,' 'The Windup Girl,' 'Watchmen,' '2001: A Space Odyssey' or about anything else you can think of. The one thing that isn't permissible is magic.
That was a joke.
Your story must center around the development of a relationship between two entities.
Some things to consider:What kind of relationship is it? (No, "relationship" doesn't have to mean "romance.")Who/what is it between?Is the development positive/negative?
The relationship must be noticeably changed at the end.Distance/death don't count if they're still besties or whatever.I don't mean changed personalities. I mean a changed relationship.

Fullmetal Alchemist Legacy Volume 1, and Fullmetal Alchemist: Legacy -The Making Of- Art Book were presented to Vic this weekend at last, and as I promised I have his reactions recorded for you all to see.
For those of you who don't know, the DA Rangers put together a simply amazing comic book based after the events of Fullmetal Alchemist, it was all just a thought from Vic at a convention several months ago after he was asked what he would do if he were to continue the story. We created a 1st volume of the comic, which will continue until the story is complete, and a production art book, which is just filled with all the love that you guys put into the project.
Vic wanted me to personally say this to all of you, so here is his message:
"Please tell the DeviantART Rangers that I love and appreciate them. I am simply speechless."

They shall not grown old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.
The above is an extract from a poem called "For the Fallen" and was written in 1914 by Laurence Binyon. London-born Binyon wrote it 7 weeks after the outbreak of World War 1. British newspapers teemed with the news of the dead who'd fallen in battle, and it was against the backdrop of these bleak days that he wrote this poem. This verse, known today as The Ode for the Returned and Services League [RSL], has been recited at all military commemoration services for almost the last century. 'Lest we forget' is usually intoned at the end as a mark or respect and gratitude for those who served.
There are two such services for which we most associate this poem with: ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day. Today is, of course, the latter.
Remembrance day is he
'GENECONOMICS' : a Motion Book script exampleUPDATE: The art is starting to come in for this book:'GENECONOMICS' : a Motion Book script example3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As it gets completed we will be posting the process of how this script becomes a Motion Book, and goes to print! So if you're interesting in the process stay tuned!
I've been asked a couple of questions about designing comics with the 'motion book' mentality in mind. Because motion books are dynamic and not static, you can create stories in a format that incorporates a motion book foundation. Where traditional comics deal with page layout, motion books deal with how that layout flows and evolves over time (Treatment: Tokyo is a great example of this).
I have an animation background, so the writing I've done in the past reflects this. Below is a script for a property I'm developing that I wrote as a motion book- so the format is taking into account how it would be interpreted at the art stage and motion book creation stage (and for that reason the format sort of bridges the 'animation/cinema'
