After AbunaiconWhat a weekend.After Abunaicon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kelly and I are finally back home after a very early flight back to London. I have to say, it was all worth it.
Abunaicon was truly fantastic! It was great meeting some of our followers from the Netherlands and pretty much everyone we met was just lovely!
It was a great test run for Gambit (my sclera contacts arrive tomorrow!!) and I've now decided to make a Human!Wheatley cosplay. Ha ha! It will be fun to be an idiotic character again.
Highlights of Abunaicon:
*Judging the Eurocosplay.
*Being chased by Batman.
*Creating world domination plans with the Joker and Harley while dressed as Loki.
*Invading panels and generally being mental.
*Killing Coulson over and over and over and OVER again!
*Squaring off to a certain Hawkeye everytime I saw her.
*ALL THE DESSERTS!!!
*Being told by four people that I look like Tom Hiddleston.
Twas an AMAZING weekend just so tiring. Phew! I really hope we can come back next year and share in all the fun. Now to plan for Alcon!

MikeDiMartinoTalksGeneYang'scomics,Season2AndMore!CBR TV has posted an interview with Michael Dante DiMartino to talk about the Legend of Korra, and it's expansion into comics. He also discusses how the comics tie into the Legend of Korra, and the future of the series.MikeDiMartinoTalksGeneYang'scomics,Season2AndMore!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the topics questioned by Mike, followed by his response:
On the impetus for bringing "Avatar" to comic books: It's a great way to revisit the old characters without having to do a full animation and everything… Obviously, 'Legend of Korra' was getting rolling so we didn't have time to do two series or anything like that, so I really like the comic outlet as a way to get these new stories out there.
On whether the end of "Avatar" was planned or developed over time: "I honestly didn't think it was going to get that big a reaction that it would carry to this day that it's like the number one question people continue to ask us. We had ideas of how to, you know, approach that story and was it going to be animated or could we tell it in a different way, and wh

Why is it wrong to love?I don't understand.Why is it wrong to love?8 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why do they call this a free world, when it's wrong to love someone of the same sex?
They are just another human, aren't they? Who stood up and made it illegal? God? What if I don't believe in God? Should I let a person I don't believe in rule my life? Fair enough if that's what you believe in, go for it, but I don't. So respect that please.
Throughout history free love has always been preached, we are told we are allowed to love who we want! But that's all a lie. As soon as you tell people that you are gay, they look at you with new eyes. They see you as ...sinful?
Since when was LOVE a sin?
"The greastest thing you'll ever learn it just to love and be loved in return."
I know that is only a quote from a movie, but it's true. Being in love is....there are no words. Being in love is truly, as they say, the greatest feeling on earth.
When it's the worst day of your life, you can think of that person and the pain goes because you smile. You smile at the thought of the

I've been here since Tuesday and it's really really nice to be with family and in the country where I grew up. The daily lifestyle in Europe truly is so different from the USA. I don't understand how everyone can be so stressed and work their bums off in the States (myself included) and not get to ENJOY things as much as people do here in Germany on an everyday-basis.YayaHan.com T-shirts, MLP event and Germany visi4 years ago in Personal More Like This

That easy! :iconba-kyunplz:
However if you are going to do this dA takes a part of the money you earn. Around 20 Points on Every 80 points [I think]
Which makes you earn only 60 points even if you sell for 80.
Thatīs why I suggest you think that 1 Dollar = 100 points
Instead of 80, that way you wonīt lose anything on it. *w* ~

Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.Conquer your artblock1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.

Most artblocks come from fear. The fear of not being able to

I just can't get over how intensely the brony fandom represented. Two awesome meetups/photoshoots, cosplayers that dressed up as ponies all weekend, and just an overwhelming sense of friendship and camaraderie. I've never gotten more compliments on any cosplay like I did for Fluttershy, making all the time and money I invested so much more than worth it. It was thrilling to hear "Fluttershy is my favorite!" or "Seriously, you are adorable." As I was riding up the escalator one afternoon, I heard a little voice calling "Fluttershy!" I looked back and saw a little girl in her daddy's arms reaching her hand out towards me; I may or may not have started leaking. :') Everypony was just so sweet, and I'm so so grateful for it.

(This is pretty obvious so I didn't think I need to point it out but it seems that some people need to hear it: No, I don't think all religious people are like this. Yes, I do know these are extreme cases. But the point is that these are all recent events and we shouldn't live in a world where this kind of intolerance still exists. I've lost count the number of times that I've been harassed by Christians so the next time you see someone picking on gay people, saying atheists should be killed, don't be a bystander and just let it happen. Speak up. Stop a crime before it happens.)
