Read These Nuzlockes!Hey folks! So in preparation for Pokémon Emerald: Wren-Mode, I've been rereading a whole bunch of Nuzlockes (as well as keeping eyes on the various Nuzlocke Groups to see if anything pops up), and figured: "Hey, what not give y'all links to 'em as you may not have read them, or forgotten about them and maybe wanted to reread them just like I did." So, without further ado, here we go!Read These Nuzlockes!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Well it's simple my lovelies. These two comics are a fantastic way to learn how to perfectly characterize both your Pokémon and characters, and being able to blend serious/humour effectively.

Save the Boob-plate!The reason for making this journal entry is because there is something that has been on my mind since the past three months. And not on my mind alone as it seems more artists are confronted with the same thing I'm about to say. While in most cases time dissipates the issue in my mind this time it is something that keeps bugging me over and over again to a point it irritates the hell out of me. Afterall it is a hot topic that has gone completely viral for many months now.Save the Boob-plate!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This journal entry is all about judgmental journalism, offended-by-design opinionators and the fearsome white knights that the first two bring in its wake. Surely this is something that has existed since the first written word on the internet, and for as long men could express their thoughts behind a pseudonym charade.
Recent events and a large exposure to unhealthy criticism had gotten me thinking and checking with my fellow artists. I'm sure people will say that as an artist we should learn how to deal with harsh and

How to beat procrastination (part 2)Most of the excuses for not drawing is lacking of ideas. On part 1 of this journal I explained why I find it useful to keep a notebook with you, and to write down your ideas whenever possible.How to beat procrastination (part 2)5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This second part is about developing the habit of drawing. Hope you find it useful!
Create the habit of drawing
First thing to know about creating new habits is that it works kinda like inertia law:
"An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion."
Which means that the more you postpone your drawings the more you'll feel like delaying them. This procrastination abyss can be endless. For instance, I didn't draw anything in 2013 until the end of August when I bought my fi

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Oh Love.How can I describe being in love?Oh Love.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's go back in time..
It's when you're crying on your bed heartbroken because you've been left alone, cheated on or dumped to the side.
It's when you're laying outside in the grass listening to music trying to find something within you that makes you shine.
It's when you hear all this advice and try to move on so you can turn into something stronger.
It's when you finally face your fears and confront all your worries because you're not afraid anymore of the things that wronged you.
It's when you look in the mirror and talk to yourself to try and make yourself feel beautiful again.
It's when you go out and party and make yourself feel free because you realize you can be you again.
Then as you grow up and move on from past hauntings, you get the rug pulled out from underneath you.
And now as your all grown up you discover that all that hurt and suffering alone has prepared you.
You uncover something so overly talked about and blown out of proportion an

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin

Comments and Commenting We all know that getting the exposure you want for your work is a tough endeavour here on dA. Despite the wonders of the site, the simple fact of the matter is that comments are hard to come by these days.Comments and Commenting1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
There may be many reasons for this - lack of time on the part of many browsers, lack of interest, or simply: not knowing what to say. We've all been there at one point (some of us more than others), and it presented the question - "what is it that writers want out of a comment?"
The only way to find the answer to this question was to set up a poll - which received an amazing response from the lit community, and with your help, this editorial will highlight some points that will aid in leaving some insightful and appreciated comments.
First and foremost - Read.

Lets talk about Mental IllnessHey guys. I wasn't gonna talk about this at all as I usually don't like to be too depressing or heavy with my journal entries, I see my role here on Deviantart as an artist and an escape for some who wants to just have a fun reading my stories and polls or just enjoy looking at some art, so I try to avoid heavier topics like MH 370 or the Gaza war and stuff, Im sure there are already many news about that and my input is probably not neccersary, sure these issues are serious but don't think its my role to talk about it. However, I also think its important to bring awareness to a recent news because it MAY be affecting you directly right now, I am of course talking about the death of Robin Williams, yes like many of you, I was also pretty sad about the loss of Robin Williams, if you don't know who he was then you might be like 'I don't get why anyone is sad about the death of an actor' but trust me Im sure like many people who grew up watching his movies, you feel a certain bond with thiLets talk about Mental Illness9 months ago in Personal More Like This
