The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)Howdy friends,The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There has been an exciting development!
A couple of months ago, the folks at Chaosium Inc. [ http://www.chaosium.com/ ], the publishers of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, confirmed their desire to publish The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers). When I received word I immediately began revising the now almost two-year-old text and illustrations to ensure that the print version is of the highest possible quality. I am currently about a third of the way through this process, and thought it would be good time to let you all know that the oft-requested dead tree edition of this story looks like it is actually becoming a reality.
I continue to be grateful for the encouragement of the folks around here, and I look forward to updating you all with any further news as it arrives.
In the meantime, I'm posting up the pages of The Statement of Randolph Carter (for beginning readers) I was working on when the word came through from Ch

Poetic Terms and TechniquesPoetic terms and techniquesPoetic Terms and Techniques2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
This article aims to give you a brief introduction to some poetic terms with which you can bemuse your friends and nonplus your enemies. Try and sling some of these terms into a casual conversation and watch the ensuing confusion.
If you don't want to confuse people, you could use these terms to discuss poetry like a badass
while smoking unfiltered cigarettes in a French cafe, when critiquing, or to give your own poetry a bit of a vajazzle.
These terms are arranged vaguely into alphabetical order for your convenience. Some of them will be covered in more detail in other articles throughout the week.
Alliteration (see also Sibilance)
Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds, often used for a specific effect in poetry.

8 Lies Told by Climate Change Deniers Debunked by Real Climate Scientists
With the news that the west Antarctic ice sheet is not only melting, but that melting is unstoppable, the climate change deniers are out in full force on the forums and the comment threads, wheeling out tired lie after tired lie, and are bellowing louder and slowing progress even more in the halls of legislation. While these deniers have a number of fall back lies, there seems to be eight perennial lies that keep cropping up.
The earth stopped warming in the late 1990′s, global cooling, it’s the sun’s fault, and 5 other ridiculous lies about climate change… debunked!

First of all, I will explain a little all this .. whole process and how many times had thought of doing this ...
Before I birth, my father always wanted a boy in the family .. (at the end we were 3 girls) I been the first to born, so...my father had insisted on treating me like a boy, football ... cars ... I think the only Barbies I had were for my grandmother, even that I never got to play with them a while. Finally I grew up with these hobbies, especially football, and my behavior wasn't very feminine, in fact, I always was called "tomboy" and I ignored them...yes, I was in my "yupi" world you know x'D... and later it wasn't only football.. basketball too. I wasn't very good at school x'D
The fact is that at age 14, I lost my "father". Since I was little I was always very close to my grandparents and i live in his house since then, my parents and I have never been so close, my grandparents are my "parents" .. and .. when I lost
DeviantART pageviews and feedbackI have been meaning to write this journal for months now, but since my 7th deviantART birthday is almost here then I decided to do it now. This journal will talk about deviantART and how to get the best out of it. After all I have been here for years now and I have seen many things, good and bad, and how to live with them. It isn't meant to be 100% informative but rather how I see things and what I think would be helpful.DeviantART pageviews and feedback2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I will most probably start of with a small journal and improve it when I have more time.
Beginning - views or watches
First thing you should think about when coming to deviantART is if you are here to improve your art or get views and use it as a bit different social network. That being said, neither of them is a wrong option because it all depends of your interests and what you want to get out this experience. If you are here to get views and find friends who like art as much as you then your next steps are quite easy. Here is a shor

I figured it out from black and white.
Seconds and hours.
Maybe they had to take some time.
I know how it goes from wrong and right.
Silence and sound.
Did they ever hold each other tight
Did they ever fight
We can make it 'til the end.
Nothing can come between
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us.
I figured it out.
Saw the mistakes of up and down.
Meet in the middle.
There's always room for common ground.

So, it was New Years Eve, December 31, 2013 and I had my sparkling apple cider and was quite content to go to bed. It was about 12:40ish (now New Year's Day), and I remember because I had just talked to my brother over the phone wishing me a happy new year. He's out at Ft. Wheeler in Hawaii for military training and stuff.
Anyway, so I go to bed after that and I wake up about 2:55am hearing something. I know it was 2:50-something, my clock is analog, but glows in the dark and it's really easy to see. I saw that number and freaked, I can be superstitious, and with it being New Years, I was a little edgy. At first, I thought originally it was a baby crying. My neighbor has one and so I figured that's all it was. All the fireworks might have woken her up. I realized that, listening closer, it wasn't a baby, and wasn't coming from that dire

I ask that all my commissioners read this and agree with my terms before commissioning me.
These are the starting prices with examples of each different type of commission. If your commission is larger and more complex, it will cost more; likewise, if it is very small and considerably simpler than the examples I show here I will work with you to price it lower than the stated price.
To have a background added or have your art done on special patterned paper costs extra. Please let me know if you need either of these things done and I will arrange it with you.

Commissioning Etiquette As an artist that does commissioned artworks for individuals, It's been a learning process as to how to properly work with a client that wants their illustration(s) done. However I have had a lot of people that had approached me about commissioning me, but the deals don't get finished, and it's because most don't seem to understand how to properly comiision.Commissioning Etiquette 4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now I recently discovered this blog post on tumblr that contains what I think is the best advice about commissioning artists, which I absolutely agree with and it's how I expect to get when someone wants to commission me.. And here's what the blog's content has and their advices, so I'm quoting here their words.

Have an idea of what you want
One of the most frustrating things is for the artist to have to guess at what you really want. Just tell us straight up what you want drawn, we are not psyc
