In addition to the updated background, we've made sure that familiar tools for readers have been retained with the new layout. Readers can change the background from light to dark, enlarge the text, and more, using the buttons presented at the to
Why you no sequel?Hello, everyone!Why you no sequel?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm making this journal to clear some stuff as well as give you some updates.
First off, I'm very happy on the reception of the finale. I have given it a week to simmer and most of the feedback is positive. I was worried uploading this because the beginning and the ending of a story are what make and leave the biggest impression. The main reoccurring complaint I see is that the ending was dragged out. Really this was intentional and directive intention. More often than not I see complaints of rushed ending and no closure so I tried to make sure I closed everything with a nice little bow. For example, look at Return Of The King, there is still almost 45 minutes left in the movie after the Ring is destroyed and it's revered as one of the best trilogies of all time- not comparing my work to it of course, but I was influenced by it. Long story short, I rather have some people complain it was too long rather than it was rushed. You could always just close it as soon as tria

Thomas and John Knoll: the brothers behind the magic
Back in 1987, Thomas Knoll was working on his Ph.D. thesis as part of his studies on image processing at the University of Michigan. He had bought a new Apple Mac Plus to help with the thesis, but was frustrated by the fact the computer wouldn't display greyscale images on the monochrome monitor. This issue wouldn't stop him and so he decided to write his own code in order to be able to see the images in his new computer.
His brother John was coincidentally working for ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) on image processing at the time and discovered Thomas' code during a holiday visit. Clearly impressed by his brother's achievements, both began collaborating on a bigger applic

Art or Porn?BOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Art or Porn?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
just wanted to answer this http://iopichio.deviantart.com/journal/poll/2542622/
in a journal rather than in a hundred comments.
Yes, I agree that porn doesn't rule out art or vice-versa,
I actually have a "life goal" which is precisely to demonstrate the world that porn can be art.
We all know that general society will disagree on this, since history leads us to believe in "porn" or "eroticism" as something generally negative.
"degrading women" is a saying I absolutely HATE :iconwthplz:, and that ALWAYS will come up when talking about this.
because nowadays, everyone who says that, is practically saying "men use women for sex"
and obviously, this CANNOT POSSIBLY work the other way,
because women are pure beings similar to fucking angels
and whatever they do, they are innocent,
making the men the demon lords of earth (sarcasm, in case anyone can't figure it out)
all of that leads to the feminist movement I have a strong problem with, but that's another story.

With the help of the magic of a pegasus device, Let's delve deeper into rainbow philosophy
Far beyond that of Cloudsdale's mythology
It's easy to misjudge that floating city
With it's alluring decor and social psychology, But with all great things comes a great responsibility
That of Cloudsdale's being weather stability , How, you ask, are they up to the task
To which the answer is in a simple facility , In the Rainbow Factory, where your fears and horrors come true
In the Rainbow Factory, where not a single soul gets through

PE: How to Animate in GimpHow to Animate in GimpPE: How to Animate in Gimp3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Gimp is a free photo editing software that you can download at gimp.org. You can use it for a lot of different things like photo manipulations, drawing, pixel art, etc. Today though, we will be covering the topic of animation!
Note that this tutorial will only show the basics of Gimp animation. How to make the frames, how to save it and the such. So let's get started!
Start by making the subject. I just used a random black ball, but the subject can be as simple or as complex as you want, depending on what you're making. Make sure you switch over to the layers tab.
Tip: If you do not already have the layers tab there by default, go to any of the tabs and press that little arrow that the green arrow is pointing at. After you click tab press: Add tab> Layers. After that, the layer tab like in the picture should show up.

I also edited in PayPal, because I take those too instead of points. v u v;;;;[CLOSED] Original Song Point/PayPal Commissions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Edit2: Commissions temporarily close on August 15, and when they reopen I'm putting them on slots (maybe 2-4 every other month, so I have time for my own things)! ((I already said this, but I'm putting it at the top for people who didn't see before))
Edit3: Commissions are closed until I finish the current ones! They'll be on slots when they reopen. I'm combining art and music information when I make it.

AmericaXreader Save me chapter 3You ran to get some bandages just like America had done for you and started to bandage his wound. He looked so peaceful asleep. It was kinda cute.AmericaXreader Save me chapter 33 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Did you really mean what you said" America asked
You were shocked at how fast he awoke.
"Yes I did, but just how much of that did you hear?"
"I heard that you love me and then I passed out hmmm but I have a feeling that Arthur isn't happy is he" he asked
"No he's pissed, he declared war on you" you answered
"Well ill win for you"
"How do you know that he hurt you really badly" you screamed at him
"Because I'm America"
You laughed. He was just so cute when he acted like a hero. It insured you that he was going to win. His blue eyes where glittering with excitement because of a nothing chance to kick Britain's butt.
"But first you have to get better" you said as you finished bandaging him
"So do you I want my girl to fight for her freedom too."
So it was decided you would fight side to side for your freedom.
