Releasing some much needed tension.Where is the best place to begin? I suppose by warning people that this is a little bit of rant. However, it's very much needed in order to clear my head of cluttering thoughts.Releasing some much needed tension.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I understand, I truly do, that there are no more original stories. Characters are simply dressed in new clothing. Plots are taken apart and pieced back together with other plots. Settings and descriptions are recycled over and over. I also understand that it is fine to be inspired by something you love. You should let it guide you and help you in your own creative adventures. I have a list of books, songs and movies that, when inspiration is running low, I turn to in order to revitalise my brain juices.
I get this.
What I don't get is how people can be praised as 'original' when it is more the damn obvious that they are not. When someone has taken a book/video game/movie and just....really, but the characters in a new setting. Yet people will embrace this as new. People will encourage this as good work.
See you at Fanime!It took forever to get the confirmation but I will be at Fanime again this year from May 24-27 at the San Jose Convention center in CA!See you at Fanime!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I will be in the Artist Alley at table number #233 which is right by the entrance!
I'll be selling my prints as usual
Come by and hang out! Some people have told me online that they were too shy to talk to me in person. I love to make new friends at cons so don't be shy!
As I've mentioned in my last post, Fanime has prohibited me from selling my 1000 Words book because it was professionally published. Fanime is the only convention that has such a weird rule without providing a Small Press option for artists with published works. Unfortunately, that means if you were hoping to get a copy of the book this year, it won't be at Fanime. However, I will also be at Anime Expo and Kintoki-con with all the books :

The Dancer by BloodshotInk
The night I met Jessie she was beautiful. She swayed to the almost intolerably loud music as if her bones were made of it. She was something unknown. I remember the sharp cut of her hair had run across her cheek, parallel to her carved-out cheekbone. It looked like a wig, I wanted to touch it. I wanted to touch her, and see if she felt like plastic. Who could ever believe that someone so perfect could be so real. I regret that. I regret doubting her reality.
Eventually she bought me a drink; she called it an Appleté but trapped in the pulsating fuchsia lights of the club it looked purple. It tasted like jealousy; s
The Use of Adverbs in Fiction WritingAdverbs are dying. Over the barren wasteland of Adverbia, a cold sun sets over the crest of tangled, bony branches on gunmetal-gray trees, silhouettes of mountains in the distance, and long shadows stretched over cracked, curling pads of parched clay.The Use of Adverbs in Fiction Writing6 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Why? Why are adverbs relegated to the path of the dinosaur in fiction writing? What's so doggone wrong with adverbs, anyway??
Well, there's a few simple reasons for it -- and maybe there are a lot of reasons for it, but I've identified a few simple ones.
The goal here, of course, isn't to make you feel foolish or inadequate if you're one of those adverb-happy writers, but to demonstrate a better way for you to improve your writing. For those of you still in school below the University level, think about this: you can blow your English or creative writing teachers out of the water with this information, and won't you be the envy of the rest of your adverb-reliant classmates?
MCR Poster ContestI think movie posters are an underappreciated art. It's not true that they have no emotion: the best posters are clever, artistic, and so eye-catching that you just can't wait for the film. For this contest, you have two options:MCR Poster Contest1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1. Create a poster for an MCR movie. This can be a biographical movie about the band, or a film about one of the album's storylines (Revenge, Killjoys, etc.) You could also take a song or lyric and create a film poster around it, as artists on Tumblr have done in the past.
2. Create a propaganda poster for Better Living or the Killjoys. Someone mentioned this in the survey, and I've thought about making it a seperate contest before, but I decided to make it an option here instead. Imagine that BL/ind or the Killjoys tried to recruit people or sway them to follow their beliefs. What would their posters look like?
Some examples of movie posters:
Hypno's Lullaby + Other creepy Pokemon factsI found this on Halloween night. Since I was kind of idle the last couple of days due to Halloween Shenanigans, I thought I'd share this with you guys. It's pretty creepy and its also pretty official - Meaning that this isn't really a fan-made lullaby. That only adds to the creepiness of it.Hypno's Lullaby + Other creepy Pokemon facts3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Take care of your own body and others!Sooo I experienced my first "real" hater here on DA today... An anorectic girl who claimed that I was fat and that I should hide away my flab...Take care of your own body and others!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This just made me realize even more why I do this.
So many young girls have a distorted picture of what a healthy beautiful body looks like. A beautiful body comes in many sizes and shapes, but not by not eating...
I just wanted to make sure, that even though im pro-curves, that doesn't mean I don't find skinny girls beautiful, heck I think skinny girls can look absolutely gorgeous at times, my personal preference is just curves, on me and other women.
It's so incredibly sad that so many young girls think that they are supposed to starve themselves to look attractive, instead of just being you, and being happy and a good person. With this, beauty comes naturally.
And anorexia is terrible. It's a very serious disease, which leads to death in many cases.
So to get to the point, another reason why I do this, is to spread the good vibe about being
NaNo is Around the CornerOnce again, we find ourselves getting ready for the insanity that is NaNoWriMo. If you've never heard of it, NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. That means in the span of thirty days, participants will write 50,000 words.NaNo is Around the Corner10 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
1,667 words per day if they're writing every day.
2,273 words per day if they're only writing on weekdays.
6,250 words per day if they're only writing on weekends.
Either way it's a pretty hefty feat, and not something to walk into unprepared. Even if you're a "by the seat of your pants" type of writer.
Which is where planning and plotting come in. Sure, if you're a pantser, you can sit down and bang out a couple chapters, maybe a whole book, but can you do it in a month? Probably not. At least not without a little bit of preparation. For all the pantsers and everyone else, compiled here is a short list of things to keep in mind, ways to prepare, what no

(FAQs) Wig Commissions - A Purchasers GuideSo one of the most Frequently Asked Question I've EVER had was: "How much are your wigs?"(FAQs) Wig Commissions - A Purchasers Guide1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Since I've been asked this so many times, I decided to write out a guide fully explaining in detail what kind of price range you can expect based on what you ask for. Now remember, this is a guide strictly based on how I ship my wigs, and what charges I decide are best for me and my experiences. Other people may be cheaper, or cost more, depending upon their own personal choice, lifestyle, and experience. Since my price ranges vary so much depending upon what is requested- I thought it preferable I break it down based on wig length/style, explain how special styling requests apply- and then explain all the excess variable costs.
Length/Style Explanations—-*These prices vary by 20.00-40.00 if you are a customer who is NON-US

Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!Why don't I get enough freelance work? Are my prices too high? I see these types of questions on Deviant Art a lot. Whether you are just starting out or you have been freelancing for a while, there is a good chance that you can improve your workload and income by applying a little bit of self confidence and assertiveness.Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Don't wait for work to find you. Go find work. Read job ads. Find jobs that suit your skills. Also adapt your skills to match the jobs you find... That's very important. If you can provide a style or service that other artists can't match, that gives you an advantage. Make a list of freelancing sites and other sites with job advertisements. You can find some of them here: http://friendlyhand.deviantart.com/journal/#/d52v4i3 Keep track of which sites provide the BEST job leads for you and visit them regularly. Be prompt when applying for jobs. Some clients will take days to pick an artist but other clients will choose from the first few applicants.

Lenneth (Valkyrie Profile)
- Entire sheet was cleaned, fixed a lot of animations
- Cleaning was specially done to get better alternative colors (Hrist, Silmeria, Freya, and PSX opening colors are the best ones)
- Finished moveset, it was pretty much done before, we just retouched a couple of things
- She only had Glowing Pierce as a combo before, so we also made her whole combo moveset. Lenneth can summon einherjar (hittable) in her combos
- Holy Shields is her unique skill... I forgot to show it in the video, she summons her floating shields and changes her stance. With them she blocks projectiles without defending.
- Ptero attack can be done three times consecutively
- Her gameplay can be a bit tricky, she sometimes needs to keep freezing the enemy with the ice crystal (blockable) to keep a long combo.
Walküre (Walküre no Bouken)
- Lot of color separation and new animations
- Same as Lenneth, she g

PAY RATE OF THE COMIC ARTISTOver the past few weeks, Ive had a few queries for work as a comic book artist. Some from private individuals and some from professional companies and as always the sticky issue of costs comes up.PAY RATE OF THE COMIC ARTIST3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I personally like to be very frank and upfront about cost to people. My time is quite limited so I cant afford to dance around the subject on tip toes hoping to lure them in for a bite. The result so far has been I havent heard back. For me, thats okay cos like they say time is money and for me thats especially true. Plus, I dont want to put out for less than my time is worth. I may not be a big name (yet), but it doesnt mean Im going to sell myself short.
The result of all these queries though has been a closer look into what I should be charging. I dont want to charge for more than my name is worth (is stress the word name) and take advantage, but on what planet am I going to charge a measly $25 (£15.44) per
