Visual Update to Stacks in Sta.sh
A new design for stacks in Sta.sh has been launched!
The new look is a visual change for stacks that makes it easier to distinguish stacks and individual items. In addition, when hovering over a stack, the stack will gradually change to display its contents without requiring a click!

I've wanted to tell you the truth for some time now. I want to tell you how I feel, and why I am how I am. I would tell you in person, but I can't muster the strength. So this letter will have to do. This is my side of the story.
At first, I thought it was just brotherly love, or admiration. I always wanted to be with you, and I couldn't stand it when I wasn't. When I got a little older, I realized that it was more than admiration. I saw I had a crush on you. It was sorta like how kids have crushes on their teachers. I thought it would just be a phase, that I would get over it. But as I grew up, my feelings only strengthened. These feelings didn't go away, and it scared me. I wanted to be more than just your brother. I loved you, but I saw I could never be with you. Unless we split. That was when I decided to leave. I didn't revolt to hurt you, or to make you less. I did it because I loved you too much. I had to stop being your brother, so I could have a chanc

" I'm sorry, what?"
"You'll get bored of it, and then you'll hate it. That's what happens."
I simply turned and smiled. "Heh, you obviously don't know me very well, do you?"
Even when I was small, people used to tell me that I'd end up working for SEGA. I was crazy about the blue hedgehog from age six, and it's safe to say I haven't stopped since. I just smiled, though. It just seemed to be one of those things people said. I always knew that I wanted to, but I lacked the confidence for a long time, and as a result simply thought I lacked the appropriate skills. I've been in the online community for all of my teenage years, developing all aspects of my artwork mainly for the basis of showing my love for the franchise and the ethos of the series to others. The day I was hired, I knew things were starting to look up for me. I'd always made a promise to myself that I would do my best to make an impact however I could.

It's been awfully quite here as you may know XD. Soon I'm very close to the finals of this year's semester, so for that I haven't spend much time here in DA, I'm sure many people are in the same situation like me, and the thing we have in common is that we get so easily stressed at the finals, and you can't really stop worry about it either..I just hope I'll pass this and be done with it
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SONIC THE HEDGEHOG! <3To start this off, HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY SONIC THE HEDGEHOG!HAPPY BIRTHDAY SONIC THE HEDGEHOG! <32 years ago in Personal More Like This
Considering all the hype I caused by asking people what Sonic meant to them, naturally, people began asking what Sonic meant to ME. A lot of people know I like Sonic, for more than just his games, but not many people know the details. Not many people know how I met Sonic in the first place or why I got interested and decided to buy Sonic Colours.
And not many people (only one or two I think) know just how much Sonic has helped me through all the rough times in my life.
Just a warning, this is going to be very real. I don't care that I'm talking about a fictional character behind a glass screen. He's so much more than that.
And I hope I don't make anyone cry. I was in tears typing this. :')
I've only known Sonic for about a year and seven months, from the time Colours came out to now. I am rather late to the party. I was actually a Mario fan first, and that was the reason I knew about Sonic, because of their fierce rival
Sonic Archie's FutureOk! Let's get this started. First off, there is this big debate on the redesigns of the SatAM cast; Bunnie, Nicole, Rotor, Antoine, and the most discussed, Sally.Sonic Archie's Future7 months ago in Personal More Like This
NOW, people are complaining on the redesigns because they're either taking away certain features of a character or adding features. BUT, let's not forget this is coming after the Megaman crossover and Eggman AGAIN went and messed things up! So, let's say the redesigns are only the aftermath of the crossover. They might not even be permanent!
However, people are still flipping their lids wither it's Bunnie and the return of her cyborg parts, Nicole looking like Blaze, (no comment for Rotor), Antoine ditching his coat, and Sally being fully clothed.
Now, some are disliking Ant.'s redesign because he has formality and apparently the coat is his trademark and a lot dislike Sally's redesign because, let's just say her design looks a lot like one of Amy's outfits with shirt, pants, gloves, bangles and what not. It might also be bec

RP Starter...As you walked through the deep wilderness, wind was blowing hard onto your face. Since you were not from here and are not used to this "high-precipitation" maritime climate, you felt as if you were going to freeze. During this time, which is winter, heavy snowfall often occurs. Now that you are lost in the forest, what will you do? Your GPS died and you have no map. You just wished that someone will be here in this forest to save you. You continued to tread through the snow, hearing that deathly matter crunch under your already leaking boots. You wished that you won't die here. As you entered a clearing, a silhouette seemed plastered under a tree. It moved a bit, turning at the sound of your boots crunching the snow. You froze, scared that the... thing might kill you. Despite your fears, your belief that the thing might help you was strong, so you almost involuntarilRP Starter...1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Is only for your sake,
Though I am sure what I desire,
Is not what you admire,
There's too much pain,
And not enough gain,
I don't have enough sight,
To continue my might,
I'm just a boy,
Who's constantly used as a toy,
My only fear,
Is to lose the few I hold dear,
I attempted a few,
But admit I couldn't follow through,
I think I have a reason,
For she has shown me no treason,
She has no clue,
Of the things she can do,
Her smile is so bright,
Always my light,
I have stood my ground,
Just to hear her sound,
I will get up again,
To fight against this sin.
Opinions are a Dangerous thing: Art StylesThis isn't about narking on anyone no, infact this is just my own muses really! You could say this is a journal for ENCOURAGEMENT! *SHINES*Opinions are a Dangerous thing: Art Styles10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I find sticking to one style restrictive if you are a beginning/moderate artist! (even professionals I might say! though I can't speak for everyone)
Having a distinctive look on how your art is done and produced is understandable and its a desire to appear unique to the point some one can just SEE your work and instantly think 'Oh! that's Ten-days!' or something along the line. However, when you are trying to find who you are and what kind of art you are to produce, I recommend trying, well, a lot of different things! Different styles, mixing styles, different colouring techinque, brushes, tools, shading. Don't feel dependant on what you are already doing and don't feel pressured by people just for trying new things!
Push out of your comfort zone. Can't draw hands? don't avoid it! draw the heck out of them! (how else are you going to learn?)

And as some of you may also know, I'm not exactly very 'creative,' or 'imaginative,' or 'good at designing,' so here I am asking you guys who are able to design to draw and whip up your own outfit ideas for Fionna, Marshall Lee, FP, Gumball, Pen or any other character who's already made an appearance in my comic if you want to, and want to get your ideas expressedCalling all Fashionistas!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You can design any type of outfit. casual, formal, semi-formal, child's, business, summer, winter, etc. etc.
When you have your design all ready, you can submit them to the folder in my FC,
under 'Outfit Designs,' which I will be creating shortly.
You can submit as many as you want, and if I like your design and want to use it for my comic, I'll make sure to credit you for the design and e

And I realized the potential this pasta had. I realized that nobody was gonna make a Creepypasta like mine anytime soon, how different it would be than all the others, having nothing that was Satanic or typically paranormal. So I got to wor

Ben 10 Cartoon Network Crossover Contest!Hello all!Ben 10 Cartoon Network Crossover Contest!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just updating this to keep you up to date.
I'VE CLARIFIED A FEW THINGS SO PLEASE READ.
It was inspired by a conversation about one of my pieces of art and I thought why not let everyone give this concept a try.
Crossover any version of Ben 10 with any other shows that have run on CN. You can stick to the class Ben 10/ Generator Rex story, be inspired by Fusion Fall or any other CN games. You can even try doing something based on T.G.I.S! All type of media are allowed. I only request you make sure it is colored. The members and I just don't judge on talent. We judge execution of the theme and creativity put into the theme.
I want to keep it G rated so please NO ADULT SWIM! Going forward Toonami classics are allowed as long as it's not the very violent animes.
Here are some examples of art in my group.
Just make sure to keep art to the content I request for th
One Dream Continuation...Well, I honestly thought that this discarded project would stay a discarded project, but...yeah. I guess all the comments and urging I got from you guys kinda motivated me to pick it up again. That, and while browsing through my old files for this game, I kinda realized that I really did have fun while making it (despite it taking forever just to get the main menu done and I had spent hours ripping my hair out trying to get the hang of flash). I'll still be using flash to make it, because Renpy's too restricting, and Novelty's too confusing (for me, at least). So that means I'll have to work on everything again from scratch. I'll still be using the old drawings I made for it (because redesigning would take up too much effort that I would rather use making the actual game), but I'll be making some slight adjustments here and there. One example being to get rid of the navigation concept where you are the one who decides where to go. Instead, I'll be making it more of a visual nOne Dream Continuation1 year ago in Personal More Like This
