Being a Christian Manga-ka?Lets face it folks...the topic of Christianity is so unheard of in manga. There are very few "mangas" that solely base there theme towards Christianity. If so, many people believe that it is SO not a manga...just a comic book advertising the Christsian faith just to get you to follow thier religion. I know they're trying to do a good deed and trying to spread God's Word to those who love manga. The cold hard truth though: they're not very good.>__Being a Christian Manga-ka?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright InfringementNever needed to keep a journal. I decided to install it today just to post this.Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright Infringement2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There is a terrible story about an user that had a complain about copyright infringment, in which she was not the owner of the copyright over the original character as the original belongs to Lauren Faust / Hasbro. The girl unleashed her fanbase (other than all the other pricks around the internet that have no other interesting stuff to do and find it funny) against a Community Manager, Administrator of Deviantart, which i find to be an otrageous thing to do.
I searched for a simple yet effective description of what Copyright means and i found it surprisingly non other than on the respective bashed admin's journal, as a very old entry.
Probably if the people would have bothered to browse and read, they would have been illuminated why the admin took the actions he did on the so often posted screenshot.
What I want to do here is to use the overall issue to compare the differences between copying, plagiari

Dragon Magic Contest (Closed for judging)This is a busy season so I thought I would give you guys a little more time to get your entries in.Dragon Magic Contest (Closed for judging)9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Dragons are inherently creatures of magic, from the tip of their horns to their smallest scales, they are infused with it. They possess the power of flight to light our imaginations with their fiery breath or a mystical spell. Dragons range from cunning creatures with fantastical magic abilities, like breathing fire or mesmerizing us with their gaze to the intelligent and powerful magic users , High mages and Wizards in their own right, drawing upon centuries of wisdom and practice. Whether a wielder of spells or a creature using its magical abilities to fly into our dreams, dragons tap into the deepest magic of our minds. What magic do they show to you? What spells do they weave around your head and what tales do they tell?
~Whatever you imagine, whatever you dream. Here there be Dragons!~

The World Is... UnfairSo I'm here to nag a little, but for once not about my life, but for others.The World Is... Unfair2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's talk about the unfairness of the world (*cough* media *cough*), there's a bombing in Boston.
It's horrible, no one can deny this. A truly tragic event. 3 people killed and around 150 injured.
So let's check: It's all over the news and chances are that it will be for at least two weeks, people pray for them day and night (which they should) and call it heart-breaking and tragic.
It truly is.
But now let's go to the other side of the world, middle east, countries called India, Pakistan and Iran, which some People (*cough* some Americans on Yahoo *cough*) proudly call the citizens of the last one "cockroaches of the human race", I've personally seen it. It hurts, especially when they threaten to "nuke" you.
Back to the point:
An earthquake of 7.8 magnitudes shakes the south-east of Iran, kills many in Pakistan and damages India.
The Media's reaction:
They're HAPPY that the number of people who died weren't
DansuDragon's 1st Contest!Well hai tharDansuDragon's 1st Contest!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've decided to hold my very first contest so I hope you guys enjoy it!
My characters. Draw them. Simple as that. The only catch? They all have a good chunk of information about their likes, dislikes, environments and most importantly their personalities. You have to draw them to show any or all of these off. You can draw them however you like, anthro, animated, with your own characters or you can even do icons!!
What I'll Be Looking For
Creativity above all. I want to see some unique poses and interesting ways for their personalities to come to life through your artwork!
Quality will also play a part, put the effort into what you do! I want to see you all at your very best!
Attention to my characters, I'll be looking very closely at who has paid most attention to the ref. sheets, things like marking, correct anatomy (meaning some of them have longer thinner bodies than others), correct colours, even eye sha

But it was a really cool dream full of destiny, kittens, and bubbling goop ponds in caves with pagodas under the surface. It just kinda worked, ya know?
Also my tablet doesn't work on my PC anymore, so I'm going to have to figure something out.
Job is going well. I look forward to being able to upload all the animations in high def once the game is out.

It is 1 am and thundering outside
After the incident this summer my sister and I were both shell shocked, loud noises bothered us both A LOT we related it to the sound of the car smashing through the stop sign on the other side of the four way intersection seconds before everything we knew changed forever.
Point is not long after my sister came home from the hospital we had a thunder storm... the noise rattled me and it upset my sister so bad I had to crawl into her recovery bed and hold her, each rumble made her squeal and then hold me tighter as she would cry into my shoulder... it broke my heart really.
Before the incident we both loved thunder, especially me, the louder it boomed the more exciting and wondrous it was.
But that thunderstorm last summer was nothing but terror on our post traumatic stress.
I am happy to say I can enjoy the wonder of nature known as thunder again... I sit here as the storm grows closer before BOOM RUMBLE CRASH it is right over our house cracking the

If you're not a comic artist, you can still check out all the cool webcomics on Tapastic.com and help support the artists that way
The Girl In The SnowI wrote this story in the last hour or soThe Girl In The Snow3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is most likely telling the story of my OC Zeru.
There once was a girl. So daint. Pure. It wasn't what was hoped for. She envied the lifestyle she was given. She was hurt. Alone. So lonely it pestered her everyday. She had no education. She was unsocial. She never saw anyone. But that is not the point. She did not need a somebody. She was fine socially. All she had was her mother. Who she secretly couldn't stand at times in need. They had a silent relationship. What this girl wanted was to be free from her home. The little tinted unanimate house froze itself surrounded by snow. Too much snow everywhere. All mixed in with the forest trees that froze in time as well. According to what it seemed out the front door window. The house was said to be soundproof. So the outside looked frozen exept for the snow that lightly fell by the hour. This girl longed to touch the outside world. When the mother and daughter visited the town to on

Last Call On Special Art Packages (: Edit 3/15/13- Hey again! I just thought I'd post a last call on art packages! They are selling out much faster than I had anticipated...I have enough prints and stickers for another 5-8 packages (depending on the package that is ordered). If you want one, this may be your last chance until my next convention. This will probably be my last advertisement for them as well, as I hate to keep flooding your inboxes.Last Call On Special Art Packages (:2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you have already ordered, paid, and given me your adress, your package was shipped yesterday morning.
Edit- Hey guys! Thank you for all of the interest in these packages! If you have already paid for one, it has been assembled and will ship tomorrow morning. If you are considering getting one, there is still time. I still have many prints, stickers, and originals available. At the rate things are selling, I anticipate I will sell out in a little less than a week (for those wondering)
