In the comments, link me a character or characters you want drawn.
Humans with simple designs only. (like the sample above) I will decrease the details if I find the character complex.
Fave the journal.
I will use a random number generator, and corresponding to their number in the faves list, I will pick 5 people, one character each.
Okay that's it!
But let me just feature this guy! :iconhr-fm: Too awesome to overlook xD
Personal LibraryQuite a few times I've been asked what books I like and could I suggest any good reads. Well, here is a journal with some of my top authors and books for you to consider.Personal Library3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will start by saying that my two favourite genres are historical and gothic horror. I do deleve into fantasy, but generally I will only read a fantasy novel if it's not set in modern times.
I also tend towards first person and will not read a book if the protagonist is female. So brace yourselves!
SALAMANDER by Thomas Wharton.
This is my favourite book and for many good reasons. It is set in an alternative Victorian era, and follows the life of a book maker called Nicolas as he travels around the world trying to make an infinite book. (A book with no end and no start).
The narrative is overly colourful and the author takes full advantage of the readers senses, especially that of smell and sight. The short narratives play like a cinematic reel in the mind.
Overall, it's a book about books which contains some very hea

You're the light of my life, my sun and star, the donut of my morning... well... you get the point.
It has been a very full five years of being married, complete with all the ups and downs of most couples, and I don't regret a moment I've spent with you. I still love you as madly as I did when I met you 6 years ago and I hope to love you just as madly for many more years to come.
I love you. I cherish you. I adore you.
Thank you for being with me. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for being my friend, my lover, my life fullfiller -the stars in my heaven.
Thank you for letting me be as cliche as I possibly can towards you lol.
I owe you the world but all I have right now is my love so please accept that with a little iou for the day I can buy a house with you and ride off into the sunset for our happily ever after.

The review of the last episode before the hiatus! It's been great doing the reviews up until now (even if they've mostly been late xD) thank you to everyone who's read them and commented over the past couple of months, I can't wait to return to reviewing when the series starts up again (which I've heard may be in September?)
I know an OVA is coming out soon, so I'll be reviewing that, and if the administrators of the group allow it, I'll be happy to review past episodes if people want that, or maybe even a movie review? I'd love to keep doing this for everyone who wants it! ^-^
But anyway, on with the episode!
This episode wraps up the Natsu VS Sting and Rogue battle, which is a great fight, although not without it's fault. I'm not sure if I'm the only one who thought this, but it just seemed to be so repetitive and anti-climatic. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED seeing Natsu beat up the other gu

Daily Deviation and Wig Video Tutorials on Arda!WHoo~! Journey Journal skin! I'm working on a Journey Cosplay for Ikkicon; it's been something I've wanted to do since I played the game when it came out. If you haven't played Journey, then you should download it to the PS3, buy the collector's edition in stores, or go to a friend's house that has a PS3 and buy/play it. It only takes a couple hours to play through, and it's a unique experience that gives you all the feelz.Daily Deviation and Wig Video Tutorials on Arda!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Anti-Islamic websitesAssalaamu alaikum [Peace be to you],Anti-Islamic websites2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For Muslim brothers and sisters,
A questioner asked: "People are emailing me websites that attack Islam. They say... that we should send this out to everyone and tell them about it. But is this a good idea to send these sites to everyone? What about the non-Muslims? Should we tell them to be careful too? What should be done? Can we visit them at all? Should we warn others?"
One of the downsides of the internet is that it has given our critics and enemies an opportunity to publicly defame the religion of Islam. I guess this is the price of having freedom of speech. Sometimes you have to read and hear things which are just plain detestable.
The fact of the matter is that its enemies have defamed Islam from the very beginning and this is not about to change anytime soon. What's more, since Muslims are in a very weak position these days, the amount of anti-Islamic propaganda is on the rise from many quarters. I am sure we have all encountered numerous w

''DON'T SCRAP THAT!''Two of the best pieces of advice I ever got considering art and drawings came from the very same person: A graphic designer who often stopped by at the comicshop. We spent a lot of time chatting about techniques and most of my knowledge about fibonacci and golden ratio I have because of him.''DON'T SCRAP THAT!''11 months ago in Personal More Like This
As for the points of advice:
One was that I should just take my time with my drawings and paintings. If I don't have a deadline, there is no need to finish it within a fixed timeframe. And I can work on it as long as I want, till it's finished. Or till I get bored with it. And never finish it and start something new. It's not like I'm bound in any way, right?
The second tip was to never shy back from starting from scratch. Whatever the reason might be. Just because I have just spent hours on that one detailed bit does not mean that the final image will look great if I build it around my initial hours of work. It can. But it does not have to.
So, I often I scrap drafts, paint over a painting or s

OMG! An Islamophobic movie!Assalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],OMG! An Islamophobic movie!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
WARNING, LONG JOURNAL
To tell you the truth, This journal entry should not have been here in the first place. but because of the fact that some Muslim brothers and sisters may not always know how to react in a way that reflect their true intentions or aim, I feel the necessity to write something about this issue and express my personal opinion about it.
From time to time, we hear about some people making sick cartoons depicting a corrupted doodle of the last prophet of the God, Mohammed -peace and blessings be upon him-. sometimes we also hear of some movies made for the sole purpose to vilify Islam and insult the prophet. I am not going to discuss whether these people have right to express themselves in such a way or not. the subject was covered countless times and it is pointless to repeat. what I want to talk about is the Muslim reaction and how it should be.
Usually, when we hear of such things (movie, cartoon, book...) we hear of the rea

On The Subject of LabelsOne of the recurring comments given in my previous journal was "Why do we need to label ourselves at all?", or words to that effect. There are many of you who believe NO-ONE needs a label.On The Subject of Labels3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I both agree and disagree.
I agree, because I think you're right that we don't need to define to ourselves what we are by putting a label on it. I shouldn't say to myself "I'm gay. Therefore, I only am attracted to women." I think that if, in your head, you have a defined, labelled view of what you are, you start conforming yourself around that label. I'm sure many of you have heard stories of men and women who came out, then later admitted to feeling pressured into staying gay because they'd defined themselves as such to so many people. Conforming yourself around a social definition like that cannot be healthy.
But at the same time, I disagree against the idea that we don't need labels in this world at all. We do need them... we just don't need to place extensive mean

Since this year is the year of the apocalypse you can expect more Left 4 Dead 2 videos. I'm definitely thinking about making some Keith and Ellis derp videos. The current winning idea is 'How to with Keith.'
Oh, yes. Chaos shall follow.

The only reason I haven't uploaded it yet is because the contacts for Lestat haven't arrived yet. Once his part is filmed then it shall be up for your pleasure!
You can definitely expect more Marauders. These guys will have plenty more episodes and silly shorts to come.
What else is worth mentioning?
