Pytho Draco Design Contest - WINNERSIT FINALLY HAPPENED! I picked a winner!Pytho Draco Design Contest - WINNERS11 months ago in Personal More Like This
A funny personality to go along with a fantastic color scheme. I've been enamored with Heston since he was first entered. I enjoy his colors and the way his reference sheet was laid out. Aledles is the first place winner.
I was waiting for someone to do a black/white design. And this one is fantastic with the large patch of white on the shoulder. I like how the mane is striped as well and Singe has purple eyes. Very nice! Soulphur is the winner of second place.
Look at this chubster! I definitely like a round character. Bango is adorable and I like his gradients. chirpeax is also the winner of second place.
IF YOU DID NOT WIN - PLEASE READ THIS JOURNAL:
serkan ridge contest? details updatedEDIT: The characters you enter are so we can draw the them in the comic as a prizeserkan ridge contest? details updated2 years ago in Personal More Like This
to actually enter you have to make a short video or comic based on serkan ridge to help promote it and spread the word!
(just to clear up the confusion)
first of all, thankyou for all the suggestions in my last journal, youve gave me lots to have a look at and keep busy c:
okay so hear me out
I was thinking not many people seem aware of Serkan ridge, though the fanbase It has (im hoping i can call it a fanbase) is very surppotive <3
and I thought, since im planning on getting the first few pages done digitally soon- the ones for print
the first few pages show two dogs getting killed
(and im sorry Db but for the sake of advertisement this sounds good X3)
Ive decided instead of the original plan of two random dogs getting killed by etch, why not let the fans have a chance?
so ve decided to hold a contest.
the winner gets to 'design' or have two of thier characte

☆*:.｡.Design Contest .｡.:*☆
I know I've been promising you a contest for a while, so here it is!
The concept of a design contest, incase you don't know...Pretty much you design me a new OC and the two winners (I'm picking my two favorite!) will get the prize and I will get ownership of the OC you make me. If you don't win you are allowed to do whatever you'd like with your entry. Some people sell it as an adoptable, or keep it for themself. I made a list of things I'm looking for in an OC, for inspiration
This must be a new character. This means it was made after the contest started.
Any medium is allowed, as long as I can clearly see the OC! So a bad quality picture would not be the best f
[PRIZE UPDATE] DRAW MY CHARACTERS CONTEST!Brooksie, what do I need to do?[PRIZE UPDATE] DRAW MY CHARACTERS CONTEST!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Alright guys, your mission for my first contest is to draw my characters! Ah, but there's a little twist. I want you to follow a theme.
What do you mean a theme?
Sorry, you can't just go all willy nilly and do whatever you want c:
The theme is.. actions! Simply pick an action you want to depict (skipping, fighting, running, etc.) and use one or more of my characters to do it. Be creative and have fun with this!
Alright, alright. Who can I draw then?
Here's a list of the characters you can pick from!
Roderick - Male
This is my 'sona, guys. He's a goofball who has witty comebacks to everything. He loves his video games and is always caught up on the latest movies. He's totally into sports, swimming and taking naps in the sun.
Rivka - Male
He's a lot more serious than the others, but totally enjoys a good joke or two. Extremely active, loves morning runs, and has a weakness for snicker bar
Ideas on NPC creation!Many elements behind our most recent NPCs have been randomly generated, and here's how we do it!Ideas on NPC creation!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
1. We come up with a general story or direction we'd like our cities / events to go in, and we create several characters to fill those cities and events with.
2. We think about what each of those characters would do in the cities/events, what their roles are, what they offer to the story as a whole, etc. We pick a race here, too, based on what we'd think would be coolest or most impacting.
3. Now that we have several very basic ideas of what we want, we use Marnok's NPC generator, which can be found here: http://marnok.com/content/_adventure/101npcs.php
This gives us a randomly-generated list of 101 very basic ideas for NPC personalities every time we refresh. We'll come back to it in a minute.
4. We then go to http://www.random.org/
5. We count how many characters we've just created for our city/event/story, and we use random.org to select one for us.
People people people peopleToo many people misuse terms like anxiety disorder, panic attacks, OCD, and phobias, it's starting to tick me off. Everybody feels an amount of fear and discomfort doing certain tasks, everybody performs odd rituals or behaviors at some point, yet these people use it so casually, such that I nor others cannot take these seriously anymore; I cannot distinguish which one's are serious and which one's are from whining.People people people people4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much call bullsh** on "phobias" people claim to have on random things these days. Most of them are not even clinical phobias, and as far I understand things like "phobias of telephones" is seriously a symptom to a much bigger problem, like social anxiety. I am incredibly afraid of making/taking phone calls, it causes me to lose half my day and endless coldsweat, but I highly doubt I have a phobia of it. Labeling it just feels like an excuse to not deal with and further investigate your issue, and i
The 'Givens' of Nuzlocke StorytellingAll right guys, I needed to make a new journal anyway and this is a topic I've thought about for a really long time. It's about stories and the assumptions we make in order to tell them. Get ready for a great big essay!The 'Givens' of Nuzlocke Storytelling11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I realize after rereading that this post might be taken as very accusatory... I am NOT out to discredit Nuzlocke storytelling as a whole, I'm out to explore the way we tell stories and the mechanisms we sometimes use to do that. The 'givens' I describe here are also called Acceptable Breaks from Reality. I don't think these mechanisms are at all 'wrong' just because they might have unfortunate implications attached, and besides, the unfortunate implications CAN be remedied or subverted with some critical thinking and plot prodding if the author really thinks it's necessary. I write about this so that authors can have a better awareness of possible weaknesses in their story, so they c
A Few Writing Tips for EveryoneHello, everyone! Happy Mother's Day! Be sure to honor your moms with gifts and love today (although you should do that, or at least the latter, everyday XD)A Few Writing Tips for Everyone10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Recently, I've been thinking a lot about what makes writing, well, good. Not in the sense of story, of course, since that's a matter of personal opinon, but rather what elements of writing are needed to make literature a work of art instead of a piece of crap. Also, what with my fan fiction contest coming to a close here in just a few days, I thought why not give a few tips to everyone? Hopefully most of you will know this stuff, so my saying it here will just be reitterating what the general writing public should already know. Let's begin, then~
This is the BIGGEST violation I see (aside from spelling) within most writings I see. This is also what I grade the absolute hardest on when it comes to reading any sort of work. If the punctuation is horrible, it automatically turns me off from even wanting to READ y

Line art, tracing and referencingI have been getting a few people asking to make Line-art out of my work or you know a trace of some artist piece so everyone can have a recolor of it.Line art, tracing and referencing2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Some ask, some just go ahead and do it, I'm NOT OK with you tracing someones work line for line and posting as your own for others to recolor, its a little insulting to the artist even more so if it was a commission.
Using someones else art to make bases or adoptables, is wrong and ruins the artist's original vision. There are 100's of free bases out there and cheap ones, you shouldn't be tracing work without permission for adoptable and bases.
Its ok to trace someones art for learning purposes, but it should never be posted! its even ok to highly reference peoples work for learning purposes, but don't post it! or at lest ask the artist for permission first before doing so.
I made a chart below to show the differences, hope that clears up some confusion.

In hindsight the fact that all my girl friends have rather ample chests didn't help the issue.

Drew is getting lonely And we're getting another dog IRL! ^^ ... But I don't know how to design him D:
So that's where you come in
For fabulous prizes, you just design a character, in any common species (it doesn't have to be a dog, it can be... anything but a cat. Though it can be a dog or wolf if you'd like!) It's all about the design. Be as creative as you'd like! :3
Also, if you want to donate prices for the contest (could be anything from points to a chibi commission, etc.), send me a note! I would really appreciate it!
You must be my watcher to participate in this contest.
The charrie must be designed by you, though you can use bases if you'd like (but it would be nice if you drew it yourself)

Let's Talk about Pokemon Part 1Eh, I'm bored, I don't wanna draw, I'm sorta tired, and I've spent the last 4 hours driving around town running errands with my mom. So... I feel like talking. Or rather, writing.Let's Talk about Pokemon Part 11 year ago in Personal More Like This
This topic isn't really an intellectual journal because it's all opinion-based on MY part, and is simply about how I feel on all the starter Pokemon from the games/series, and just a tad bit on each generation to go along with it. Some of it is positive, some of it is negative, but overall, I'll try to keep it as balanced and interesting as I possibly can. I'll also be dividing it into regional parts, to keep the journals from being...too long. So... let's discuss Pokemon.
GENERATION 1: KANTO
Ah, Kanto. The original region. The start of this epic franchise that has captured the hearts of so many children and teenagers. For many, this is considered nostalgia at this point. What do I think?....Eh. It's not the BEST, but it's certainly not the WORST either. Let's take a look.

Letter to PKNote: This started as a comment to the most recent PMD-E journal, but it ended up summing up pretty much all my current feelings for the group so I figured I would post is as a journal too. For everyone who are watching me have kept me going for so long as I have.Letter to PK6 months ago in Personal More Like This
PK. You say that you must have been a little bit nuts with creating the story for this group. It was really quite similar for me. I often felt like I was a bit nuts too with this group. I was part of it for two years, and during that time it often felt like the only thing I thought about. Not just my characters, not just other people's lovable characters, but most of all, YOUR characters and the story that you were telling. I was completely enchanted by how such a complex and gripping story could come out of something as relatively simple as Pokemon. I couldn't wait to see more of Devonshire's mysterious past, I wanted to see PK and Shroomshworth get back together, I desperately wanted someone to comfort Sandy.
Robin's Pants PSAAs you might know, my comic's protagonist is fairly androgynous--Professor Birch asks "are you a boy or a girl?" because he literally can't tell. (He then labels Robin a 'borl' and moves on without ever getting a real answer.) Unfortunately, Robin's ambiguous appearance has caused a lot of ignorant, bigoted attitudes to come crawling out of the woodwork. Please be warned that from now on, I will call you out if I find you leaving cissexist or transphobic comments or jokes on my comic. This really isn't a big deal... I'm not going to start publicly shaming anyone, I will just start pointing out any problematic comments that pop up instead of letting them 'slide'.Robin's Pants PSA3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Basically, if your joke boils down to, "having a nonstandard/hard-to-determine sex/gender is so abnormal and freaky, haha!" then I will call you on it. If your joke hinges on making fun of gender pronouns or using 'it' jokingly, then I will call you on it. If you talk about what sex/gender a person
On Overpricingedited a bit here and thereOn Overpricing7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Points are probably one of the worst and best things that ever happened on dA.
For those people who are too young to get a paypal (or have strict parents that don't let you get one UEHEHEHE I FEEL YOU) it's a pretty good way to buy commissions, adoptables, and other interactive stuff from other artists. Sometimes it can help you manage your "money" more, and it gives you some kind of "wow did i really earn this much from adoptables/commissions i feel really proud" kind of feeling too.
Oh right, the bad part? People under price all their art just so they can meet the standards that people who don't buy points with money have. They're most likely going to run into people complaining about it, especially if they make things under minimum wage.
tip; don't say anything if you can't afford it.
most artists take comments like:
"Aw it's too pricey for me, maybe another time!"
"Good luck selling, I wish i could buy it!"
"If only i didn't have more
