refusing requests is not stingy ('tiny' rant)I think I gave my two cents on requests already longer time ago, don't remember, I'm old.... but recent activities (actually reading a journal that called people who don't do requests greedy and stingy) made me realize I might take a moment to remind people of a few things regarding requests ... and how I personally handle them.refusing requests is not stingy ('tiny' rant)5 months ago in Personal More Like This
basically, requests are a cool thing, it's free art done by people out of friendship, out of pure joy of sharing or out of good will... or maybe even boredom or the hope to increase popularity and/or reputation - all of these are good reasons but it should never be forgotten that it's always the artist's choice whether they do requests or not.
the good side of requests:
requests are great if you are new to DA - when you don't know many people and are likewise unknown, opening requets will attrackt people to come and check you out, might even order artwork from you. If you draw for them they'll appreciate it (if they're not spoiled brats) and that

The Meaning of 'No' and Where to Go From ThereFor my AP Language and Composition class, we were supposed to write an essay on a controversial topic. I chose Rape Culture.The Meaning of 'No' and Where to Go From There2 years ago in Personal More Like This
An important line that seems to be blurred when it comes to sexual advances and the act of sex itself is the idea of "when does no mean no". If a woman is blackout drunk yet still asks for sex, even though she might not remember it in the morning, surely it isn't against her will? Or if a girlfriend says no, maybe she's just playing hard to get, right? Wrong. No matter the innuendos and no matter the situation, 'no' does in fact mean 'no'. Regardless of how drunk the person is or what they are wearing, there is never an excuse for rape or an 'invitation' for sexual assault. But the question is where did this mindset begin and why is it acted upon so often and without reproof?
The catalyst and the enabler of rape is much more complex than just a man's lust: the crux of the issue lies in the idea of "Rape Culture". Rape culture is a society in which people of all a

Basically what this contest is, is a design contest. For the last few months, I've been designing my "sona". I've finally settled on a design (anatomy wise), though I just can't seem to think up some markings. So because of this, I decided to hold a small-ish contest. Mostly since I never have before, and it sounds fun!
Here's the Design I have so far:

Commissions December [closed]Commissions December [closed]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Soo, since Christmas is coming up (Or any other festival you celebrate, or don’t celebrate..), I decided to make a commish-special!
Please share this journal. I know that a lot of people can’t afford commissions and I want to give them a chance to get one too.
[I also lowered the prices since it’s Christmas after all.]
December 1 to 7 : Additional to your commission, you will receive a Fullcolored-Chibi-version of the drawn character(s) December 8 to 14: One additional character for free + you can chose one of my available Adoptables. (until I run out of them.) December 15 to 21: Your commission + a full colored waist-up Picture of the same character(s) December 22 to 29
The thing with popularityThats what decides if we get commissions or not.The thing with popularity1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It decided if you have a good fame, or rather bad.
It can help you in getting a job, or maybe even make a job giver look negative at you.
Especially here on deviantArt. Well for being honest, dA is no good place for "real" artists and designers.
They may get some honey around their mouth, but there is nearly never useful critique.
But places like deviantArt can (if you do it right) help you to become more popular... well but usually only around the web.
Another fact is, it doesnt matter how many people watch, fav or comment your art. Most time you have the same problem as fresh or studying artist : money.
And if you are going to ask for it in commissions, your big fans wont take one. Why? Because they are mostly kids. Not earning money.
But then, there are also artist, with nearly the same skill, same amount of watchers... but who get their commission slots filled within minutes when the artist shouts "they are open!".

Bella Swan from the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer
I was in disbelief that I'd just explained my dreary life to this bizarre, beautiful boy who may or may not despise me.
Sorry guys, I cannot work on this list anymore. I recently realized that its pretty much pointless. This character, this wonderful well written masterpiece is the epitome of female writting. Who cares that she isn't animated? She trumps all those cell shaded bimbos to oblivion.
What can I say about Bella Swan that has no been said? She's not the prettiest girl around but for some reason all the boys from her school want to date her. The reason is obvious though; Bella Swan is an enigmatic individual with the most adorable tics and stutters. Also, her aloof outlook on life and disdain for others is so complex especially when the gorgeous Edward Cullen comes to the picture. She feels like she doesn't deserve him, which is a noble and modest act in itself. Whenever we are in a relat
Asexuality and AcephobiaThe opinions in this rant are my own and you don't have to agree. If you don't, fine. If you do, thanks!Asexuality and Acephobia3 months ago in Personal More Like This
We talk about homophobia all the time and how bad it is to hate gays for what they are, and we preach about how it's okay to be all of these different sexualities, but what about the asexual people? I know there are many who understand asexuality and support it--including myself--but there are some who act as though it's a sin to be asexual. I really don't see what the big issue is. There's nothing wrong with not wanting sex or not experiencing sexual attraction in any way.
Just as someone can be attracted to the opposite sex, the same sex, or both, someone can be not attracted to any sex. Does that make them weird or abnormal? Does it make gays, straight people, or bi people weird? No? Exactly.
And when someone's asexual, that's not a cue for others to badger them with stupid questions or remarks as if they're some sort of sideshow attraction.

Alright guys, I finally got to see HTTYD2 and now it is time to review this lovely little sucker. And, like it says above, this is going to have major spoilers in it. So if you haven't seen the film and you care about spoilers DON'T READ THIS. XD But if you do want to read it, buckle in for the long haul because this is going to be a long post.
Okay, moving right along, I'm going to break this thing down just like I did in my Frozen review, so let's get things started with...
The Plot: Basically, I thought the plot was very good! Good themes, and good pacing. Though it did feel a little rushed at times to me. I'm not exactly sure how long the movie was, but it felt a bit short. Like, we ended up at parts of the story a lot quicker than I expected to get to them. Not exactly a bad thing, jut a tiny bit on the hurried side in my opinion. But it all seemed to transition pretty nicely an

FIVE LESSONS TO MAKE YOU THINK ABOUT THE WAY WE TREAT PEOPLE
First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady
During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"
Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.
"Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say "hello".
I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy
SQUEE! MY LUNCH!!!!!!!!!!So me and my crush were sitting outside on a rock near our school and my best friend Taylor was with us. She was pacing around because it's kind of awkward for her (I still feel bad about that) Then Kansas came over ((girl in my class)). She asked me if I had anything to eat. I told her I might. I pulled out my strawberries and handed them to her. (((it's not like I would've eaten 'em anyway))) I just assumed she would leave after that...she didn't. She asked if I wanted her to leave. I didn't want to be rude so I told her it was fine. I talked to Taylor a few times ((((during the amount of time we were there)))), not often, as she was really far away.SQUEE!

When I had eaten something I asked Andrew [my crush] if he wanted to walk around. He did. We walked around the school. We conversed and what not. Then, at the awkward part of most conversations where it fell silent, Andrew said "Hey Makenna." I looked over at him and smiled. He looked away nervously then looked back up. "Wanna go o
