So I was just stopped by a cop....I wasn't driving. I was walking. He drives up, rolls down the window, and says something I don't quite hear. I say hello. He repeats it. "How old are you?"So I was just stopped by a cop....1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm in shock. I ask, "How OLD am I?"
"I'm 29!!" (I'm sure I sounded incredulous.)
I say, "I have my license if you want to see it." He wants to see it so I give it to him. He looks and hands it back.
He thought I was a highschool truant.
The moral of the story is that I should stop wearing clothing a teenager might wear because as I continue to get older and not to age it will become more and more unbelievable that I am as old as I say I am and I don't look forward to being driven in the back of a police car to the nearest high school, in tears BECAUSE I HAVE ALREADY DONE MY TIME!

ADDITIONAL CHARACTERS + APPLYING UPDATE!APPLICATION PERIOD UPDATE:ADDITIONAL CHARACTERS + APPLYING UPDATE!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
You may send Pre-member Applications for 2nd & 3rd Characters!
You can apply at whatever age you want (15 - 22) - But keep in mind we are very likely to demote or ask you to change your age,
be open-minded and willing to change - because honestly; if we need one thing and you won't comply, we'll just drop your app. c':
If you want to apply to Join the Group (your First Character) Read the following:
After quite a bit of discussion and debate we have decided to allow a Additional Characters.
You don't have to make multiple characters, it's actually not recommended (takes a lot of commitment),
but if you do, there are a few rules that come with having additional characters:
1. You should have been an 'active' member:
I mean, if you can't even keep up with 1 character, you shouldn't make a second. xD

I'm gonna go over the rules now before you guys look at the prizes so that you don't skim over them:
Rules and Conditions:
As with anything, we gotta set a few Ground Rules to make sure everything runs smoothly.
1. You must have been a Member since at least January (6 Months Ago).
I say this because - This is a Reward for those who stuck around with us since the beginning,
while six months ago isn't the beginning by any means, that is the start of the new Tōrōgakure.
This is a "Thank you" to those who stuck with us, through hard times and good times.
A Reward to the brave shinobi who fought during the Invasion of the Masked Men so long ago,
A memoir to those who've passed on - And a Celebration for things to come in the future.

I know, that you and me have pretty much business in this world. So why not to send our characters into the joyous journey to the other world?

todayis one of the gawdamn happiest days of my life.today2 years ago in Personal More Like This
it's a challenge. it's a challenge to be happy, to seek out happiness and to hold within you.
it's a challenge because so many people can give you attitude, can give you hateful looks.
so many people can yell at you, tell you you're crap or something.
There are people who just won't like you.
And that's ok. That's ok. There are reasons behind those actions, most of which i'll never know.
But the one thing i do know is that you can't let other people take that away from you.
People can rain on your parade but the hardest part and one of the most challenging things to do is to look into yourself and find a reason to smile.
It sounds like such simple advice that's been quoted down many times in history..
But the pathways to it.. the pathways that people take in order to reach a CONCLUSION, a REALIZATION are so vast and different.
Today i was myself. But i was more than myself. Alot of times, you have to fight to be happy, and alot

long text is long
I am not here on deviantART for anyone, I do not draw to please anyone, nor am I here to be used as a feature machine
This rant obviously does not include trades, gifts or commissions xD
The biggest thing that irks me is that people think, just because a lot of people have decided to follow me, I somehow have a obligation to use that to "help" other artists with amazing art get recognized. This is bullshit. Its not my or anyone elses responsibility to make anyone get attention.
IF someone really wants attention, I think its fair that they work for it instead of sitting on their l azy ass waiting for others to do it for them. Remembering back to my own first months here on dA it took me atleast 4 years of being very active. I MEAN uploading stuff almost everyday/commenting back to people, drawing trades and gifts.

YOU CAN USE A BASE. XD
I realized that I never explicitly said this, so I'm saying it now.
You can use ANY base as long as you credit the base maker.
This competition's winner will be judged by DESIGN skill, not ART skill.
Therefore, bases and totally cool. B)
Take note that I may make changes to the winning design, and I am effectively buying your design off of you with the prizes I'm offering.
This means that I will credit you for the original design the first time I draw it, but I will not be crediting you EVERY time I draw it. 'Cos that's a bother... ||D
Okay guys, soooo

OP OC Backstory tipsBackstory: "How it all began".OP OC Backstory tips2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Native Island where to place a baby.
Relatives how to get hold of them.
How come? Ways to a grown-up buddy.
Drama queens, violated victims and other cute stuff
"Oh, my OC was born in an unknown island of an unknown sea, and it changed its location,
Wherever the sea drags it!"
Well, let's say a huge NO to this annoying "unknown" word. Usually it's just an excuse for a poor background history. If you really love your OC and want to make her\him fitting the One Piece World and believable, you have to start from this. A native island is extremely important for a good backstory.
First of all let's be straight - One Piece geography is very simple. We have four oceans: South, North, East and West Blue. There are not many island out there, the main space is just huge amounts of water. Every ocean verges on Calm Belt, two areas that separate oceans from Grand Li
