Lady Kindle's Tips for Good WritingI’d like to start this whole thing off by stating that I read A LOT. And in all of my extensive reading, I find it almost hilarious how many writers tend to make the SAME mistakes in their stories. These mistakes have NOTHING to do with writing styles, which vary from writer to writer as per their influences and use of descriptive language. For the most part, anyone who’s paid attention in an English (or writing) class has the basic potential to draft something that is not too crappy. The PROBLEMS occur when writers can’t be PATIENT with their own work. Writing is a process, like anything else, but it can suffer from the writer from either not putting down EVERYTHING they're thinking or putting TOO MUCH thought into it. So here are some basic tips on how to “not suck” or become one of the millions of online stories that the writing community constantly complains about.Lady Kindle's Tips for Good Writing4 months ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

These are definitely not rules just guidelines! In case you come up with a humorous fanfic and maybe need some ideas
1. Be Unexpected. This is the basic concept for humor, I think. Something so unexpected happens, that your audiences first reaction is to laugh. This task is sometimes a bit harder to carry out in writing than it is visually, but it can still be done! Try come up with an action or punchline you think few people will see coming, that no one will suspect. Then youll get them. Just avoid turning to tired old clichés, and come up with your own material and jokes to continue with what you have written!
2. But Not Random. To be funny, the joke has to make sense within the context of the story. If you just pull a random object you think will be funny and insert it into the story to try

you have to draw a button like you would drawing any other object (draw it in a new layer on your last frame) you can put it a frame after your animation or on the last frame of your animation depending on weather you want the screen blank while the viewer decides if they want to click that buton and watch it again...

All right, well, here we goA one-question Mary Sue Test. No 100 questions, 1,000 interpretations, very little math. Pretty cool, neh? Well, if you're taking a Mary Sue Test, there's only one question to be asked.
Here it is, the only question you need when wanting to figure out if you're writing a Mary Sue, and how to fix it (probably):
1. Why are you taking something called the Mary Sue Test in the first place?
Here, let me elaborate on that. Why are you here? Let's think about that. If you're just taking this for fun, you guys can either hang out or head out; this is meant in particular to those who were earnestly seeking a test to help make their character better (not that taking something in fun isn't something wrong, just giving you guys a heads up). And if you landed here by random chance, well, hey, you're as welcome as anyone else to stay and read, too.

*Vellez asks "What is your creative process? Do you just research and then begin drawing when you get an assignment, or do you mull it over a bit?"
Hmm it usually starts with me getting the assignment since I spend my freetime drawing other things mostly (these days at least). As soon as I know what the client wants, I leave it alone for a couple of days and wait for ideas to sprout in my head. The rest is just craftsmanship, you know, drawing the stuff and everything. The real work is done as soon as I put down the thumbnail sketch.

THE BACILLARY TUTORIAL ON A QUAD SUIT... (very basic)
to make the whole body look realistic and accurate you will need the use of padding
look at the back legs... they have a back bend in them this is easily achieved by adding knee and thigh padding on the front of your leg and a triangle on the back to create the back bend,
with the head you need an extended neck, wolves have long necks so to achieve this effect you can use the bike helmet method were you stick foam on a bike helmet, view out mouth.
for the stilts use pvc pieing (guttering) with wooden handles, make them long enough so your back is strait and your legs are strait, or bent to a comfortable position.

Give Life to the BackgroundsGive Life to the Backgrounds11 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
"Give background personality, give it life."
Think about WHY in the world do you draw backgrounds?
Are you thinking you need to do better in drawing backgrounds because your art needs it to look better?
How do you treat backgrounds in your work? What is actually "backgrounds" to you??
Background by defination in art simply means, the picture plain in the back of the main subject.
So background can be "white" or "blank" that's still background in considering of the art elements.
But what "background" means to most of us, is "scenery" and "enviromental" drawing/painting behind the main "character" or "subject" on the picture.
There is a thing about the background's relationship and the characters (The main subject)....
when we are making a single image, don't we need to make sure the viewer see the "focal" point of the image which is the most interesting part?
Sometimes the background itself can be point blank, to help the focal point to stand out and retreat, that's still

PART II: NARUTO NINJA FASHION CATALOG
COMMON PIECES OF NARUTO NINJA CLOTHING FROM HEAD TO TOE
Now I introduce SOME of most typical pieces of ninja clothing.
Also known as hitai-ate. As you all know, it is a piece of cloth to which is installed a metal piece with the sign of the ninja's village. Most, MOST of the ninjas use forehead protector, but not all (like Jiraiya or Shizune). However, adding forehead protector to the design of your character makes the costume a lot more Naruto-like than not using it.
Forehead protector is one of most versatile accessories that are seen among Naruto ninjas: there is some different colors with them and even more ways to wear it. I list some:
* Blue. Most seen color, especially in Part I. Used by all level ninjas from genins to jounins. Blue forehead protectors used in Iwagakure tend to be purplish.
* Black. Another common color, mainly used by chuunins and jounins, very common in Pa

Since I've liked you for so very long now,
Starting to pound, my heart beating loud,
Can you hear the booming sound all around?
Oh, it was a confession rehearsal,
I can't believe I thought it was serious,
That means there's someone that you like,
So what kind of face should I be making right now?
"Hold up, are you gonna get serious!?"
I suppose I should apologise for that one,
Hey, that sounds great, take the long way,
If you want to, make a stop on our way home.
And tomorrow I will find out who you like so much,
that you practice for them.
I don't wanna hear it but I kinda wanna know, so,
I may be selfish, but I'm willing to listen to
All of your heartfelt words,
I'll bear with the pain that I feel,
Putting a smiling face on with all my might.
You should just get serious,
Admit it without any fear,
Else I'll have to say those words
Faking a smile then...
Fortune says you're really rather lucky,
Not that I pay attention to that kinda stuff!

I wrote this guide because I'm somewhat of a perfectionist. I want to do everything by the book-but sometimes, there is no book to go by. It was a day in the middle of my Winter Break when I decided that I should look for a guide to role-playing; I only found one and it didn't elaborate enough for my tastes.
By no means is this a set of strict rules or even a standard, but this is what I look for in roleplay partners and what almost all of the people that I roleplay with universally appreciate. If you don't like this, I'm not forcing you to read it.

If you're new to roleplaying, you may not know all of the terms involved. I sure know that I didn't! These are some of the most commonly used ones.

A relative newcomer to the list of genres (and widely popularized by the show of the same name), the Supernatural genre is a sort of urban fantasy that involves such factors as subtle magic, monsters, the occult, demons, ghosts, and even God and the Devil. Unlike Fantasy, it is not very limited by time-period, and has a much darker feel. It also often involves the use of the sciences—as it takes place largely in the modern era. Today, I'm going to give you some tips for crafting a story in this genre.
