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
Homestuck Land TestSo, it's finally arrived!Homestuck Land Test3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
First off, this is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than the title test in the way this will work. In fact, this really isn't much of a test. It's more of a guide to creating a land based on your/your fan character's personality.
As such, this is not going to give you a straight answer! You will have to use your imagination to create the actual land.
The test instead tells you the "feel" of your land and the quest of your land!
So, enough rambling, lets get started!
First off is the "Feel" of your world!
This is based on the FIRST word of your personalDNA result!
personalDNA test here: http://www.personaldna.com/
Once you have your result, go here to see the feel of your world: http://tinyurl.com/FeelofLand
Now, for your land's quest, you'll need to take the MBTI, or the Myers Briggs test.

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.

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

You are sitting at a table and across from you is a beautiful boy. His hair is red and his eyes are green and his lips are perfect and pink, wrapped around a spoonful of pineapple flavoured pudding, all the same curled up in a slight smile.
You comment on how disgusting that flavour is and he laughs and says, I shall prove you wrong.
The beautiful boy takes another spoonful and turns it into your direction. Smiles. Says, care for a bite, Mr. Wayne?

How Not To Get A Mary SueX-x-X-x-X-x-X How to Create A Well balanced Female Lead X-x-X-x-X-x-XHow Not To Get A Mary Sue3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
For most people, the problems that people will have with a character is the lack of balance they might have.
Mary-Sues are the most popular characters that exemplify this.
Mary Sues are characters that have more good traits than flaws and therefore look perfect for the audience. That can include all sorta of aspects in the character 'life'.
1) You have over-powered Mary-sues who can defeat any and every opponent and therefore are respected and awed by everyone.
2) Realtionship-Sues who are so much of the woman that every man who meets her is obviously struck with love the minute they see her, even when the character has no real qualities that WOULD normally attract men. And these are also the ones who are able to take their pick of the guy and somehow always end up getting with the most sought-after man in the series.
3) You have the feminist-sues/tom-boy sues who are the perfect women in their being less "girly" on

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!

Give Life to the BackgroundsGive Life to the Backgrounds10 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
