Things to Avoid When Making ComicsOr, Things That Really Annoy CrowbarThings to Avoid When Making Comics4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Edit April 16: Given recent comments, it's come to my attention that the tone I've used is too derogatory and using others' work as examples was a huge mistake. I've rewritten it to be what I hope is more constructive, and removed the examples (since half were missing anyway). My intention with the examples was only to provide example of that one element, not to completely defame the authors or insinuate their entire comic is shit. All the examples had good and bad to them, but the focus of this write-up is the bad. [/edit]
The majority of these issues are things I see in OCT entries and could be easily avoided and/or improved on. Please be aware that these are things I find issue in, and some points may be more subjective than others. For most points, I've explained why I think it's wrong, what can be done to fix it, and how it can be made to work well. Above all, think about how each element of your comic impacts the narrative and

Journey.Last night, I played Journey for the first time. (No spoilers below, don't worry! I encourage commenters not to be spoilish either!)Journey.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think around the second stage, I met another person, and we played through the game all the way to the end. Despite having known the game was designed around random meetings with other people online, I always thought it'd just be kind of hindrance or possibly annoying to have someone else mucking around in my lonely desert toilings.
'Davideogamer'! If you are out there somewhere, I hope you realize you made what would have been an awesome game experience into a FREAKING UNBELIEVABLE ONE.
To ANYONE who plays Journey on the PS3.. I hope that your first run through is met with another traveler, because you would not believe the sort of experience the whole thing evolves into. In many ways, it does this without you even realizing it. I could wax poetic about it for a paragraph but like many reviews I read about it on the net, I concur, the

In hospital!!Quick update.In hospital!!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
For the past month i have been in hospital, in ICU in isolation. it has not been fun and there were some points where my parents thought i wasn't gonna make it. I am doing much better now and managed to get my laptop in for the weekend. im not going to go into detail about whats wrong with me because i basically dont even get it, but there has been one complication on the next, all i know is my colon is stuffed.
I am so keen to draw again and have some cool ideas for hero school and breakdown but if I can ask that you guys please pray for my recovery and strength for me and my family. God has given so many blessings and i am grateful but will appreciate more prayer.
you guys are amazing, if you've just joined the watch list thank you so much and i will thank you personally as soon as I can.
so guys i promise i am not ignoring you i love you guys!
have a great day! :iconspazhugplz:

Some Oil TipsIn the big-picture, I don't know that much about painting. But all that I do know comes from experience. I am completely self-taught, and have learned through a brutal system of trial and error. I'm not remorseful over any of that, learning the hard way has made me understand the chemical process of painting better than a list of do's and don'ts... I know why I do and why I don't. But I have to tell you that if somebody just told me some of the things listed below, I would be a shitload better at all this crap by now.Some Oil Tips10 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you that know everything: you may find this an hilarious companion to my stupid-ass paintings of sainted women wearing bras.
For those of you that enjoy learning: you may find some of these "tips" at least something to consider.
Because I make a lame attempt at creating an illusion of humanity, you may find that some of these suggestions are inapplicable to those of you that have a more progressive style. In that case, steal wh
Gravity Falls: Hidden Secrets~HELLLOOO Gravity Falls fans! I have found MANY secrets to Gravity Falls:Gravity Falls: Hidden Secrets~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the beginning, have you ever noticed there is a pyramid with an eye in the middle for a split-second at the end? Well, here is a video explaining it:
Well, I've never noticed this, but there are A LOT of hidden stuff that youtubers pointed out.Okay so first, here's the video
And here's some things that people noticed:
When the lightning strikes when Dipper shows Stan the footprint, doesn't it look like Stan has wings?
When it shows the trees, for ANOTHER split-second you can see the sascrotch. XD
When it shows Dipper's book at the end along with the pyramid, there are random letters right?
Well, at the end of the theme, there is sort of a whisper right? Well, if you play it backwards, it says three letters back... So if
you do the code in Dipper's book it says, "Stan is not what he seems."

Japanese 101Konnichiwa Minna san! Watashi wa baka desu! Watashi no shumi wa e wo kaku koto desu! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu! （＾Ｏ＾☆♪Japanese 1012 years ago in Personal More Like This
So okay some of you got jellin of my fine japanese language desu ne.
I thought of why not teach my lovely watchers speak japanese?
Okay let's start with the simple one. If you want your sentence to sound like japanese you need to put 'desu' at the end of each sentences. Now before we start using 'desu' let me tell you first what it means. It would be stupid if you're using the word that you don't know right? Okay the word 'desu' comes from the latin word 'Canius Femina' meaning bitch. For example I love you desu (I love you bitch).. Tehehe kidding aside. Okay the meaning of 'desu' is really hard to explain but basically it's a polite modifier or it can also mean " It is ", "Those are" , or "I am." or whatever.
Now that you know the word desu let's use it in a sentence.
Fuck you desu. V(=^･ω･^= )v
