This contest is a :#DoctorWhoOCs: contest, for Doctor Who OC's, you must be a member to participate.
The theme "Original Character Development".
Have a old character you've been looking to revamp? Recently realized your character is a "Mary-Sue"? Have a character you haven't put on paper yet, and is still siting in your head like brain crack? Haven't even come up with an OC yet, but are looking to?
Perfection. This contest is for you!
Or consider creating a "Red Shirt" or something similar.Minor characters need love too, and the small ones are easy to have fun with since they don't usually pertain to the big picture story!
Do me a favor and :iconfavoriteplz: Fave :iconfavoriteplz: this journal so I know you are interested! Once the rules are out, I will provide special notice to the deviants who fave this journal, as well as writing a g
Wait! I Thought We Were Friends!Clara was a very beautiful looking girl. She had chestnut-colored hair, big green eyes, and small, faded freckles. She looked like the sweetest girl you could ever meet. That was sadly not the case. Her few friends, London, Ethan, and Morgan, only saw beauty in her looks. They actually considered her a two faced girl who only cared about one thing: herself. They were finally sick of it.Wait! I Thought We Were Friends!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
One day, all of them were together... without Clara. They talked about how much she used them for their own needs and caused trouble for them all the time. Morgan came up with an idea.
"Guys, I know how we can get back at her. We tie her up and make her feel pain, like we have to, but physically." London smiled as Morgan said that, and Ethan even chuckled and said, "Yes."
The time was about 10:00 AM, so of course, Clara would still be sleeping. So they walked to her home, quietly snuck in and reached her bedroom. Yup. Asleep. Morgan grabbed her by the ankles, and London grabbed her arms. Ethan ope

PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the LegendDaily Deviations, or DDs . . . for some deviants, receiving one is the epitome of awesomesauce in the deviantART world. For others, they are a nice way to show off the work of lesser-known artists. Still others treat them as a special way to bring attention to great art that exemplifies works being done by a particular gallery or community.PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Perhaps because there are so many different ways of conceptualizing DDs, there are also many myths and misconceptions. I would like to address some of those myths by responding to the ones most frequently heard. Please note that these opinions are mine and reflect my experiences with the photomanipulation community, but perhaps they will be informative nevertheless.
Myth 1: DDs should always be perfect.
To many of us, the ideal Daily Deviation goes to an artist with amazing talent whose work draws you in and makes you think, "Wow, everyone needs to see this!" A DD should move you, inspire you, and provoke you to think, b

Comenzare sin ninguna introducción ya que no la creo necesaria. Ya que solo quiero decir algo: Injusticia. Concursos que parecen más arreglados que un reality show. Si bien, yo no participé en ninguno de ellos, simplemente me indigné al ver los resultados. Quiero decir, ¿No saben puntuar?
Comenzando con el concurso de :iconZafiro-Satoshi:.
No hay nada que comentar allí; prácticamente se le restaron puntos a trabajos maravillosos para dárselos a otros que si bien, están muy buenos, no merecían puntos en ciertos ámbitos.
Por ejemplo, :iconMomochanx6: y :iconNatsumi-asamilla: ganaron el 3° lugar; dos personas no pueden quedar en 3° lugar, es injusto, se sale de las reglas cuando sus trabajos no eran la 7°maravilla del mundo como para comprarlos. Aun así, en mi lugar, habría elegido a :iconNatsumi-asamilla:, ya que la originalidad es buena al hacer un cosplay y se esforzó en h

Please keep in mind that due to this extended weekend, there will be some delays in ticket responses upon our reopening. Any tickets filed will be attended to as soon as possible.

Friend zone sonnet.Depression sucks. A lot. Mixing it with teen angst apparently produces a sonnet.Friend zone sonnet.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I couldn't sleep because this was stuck in my head.
Once long ago, I felt my own true love
How others would taunt it, we denied it
I denied denial, put her above
my daily needs, wishing fates to collide
We had shared a childhood, made a bond
Nobody could break it, forever friends
Friends, all it was, I had grown much too fond
She knew of it, led me beyond amends
I followed too far and got my heart crushed
A catastrophe ending on thin ice
Holding friendship at least, ordeal hushed
Life's presented more, but each with no dice
Withering confidence, hope is waning
Future is dark, no one is remaining
Sorry I haven't updated in a while, haven't really done anything DA-relevant.
Creative Near-Sightedness. Do you have it?Thanks to a brief comment recently made by a friend, it spurred me into coining the phrase 'Creative Near-Sightedness' to describe something I've battled with and continue to battle with, throughout my journey. I hope that this might make some sense to others out there and shed some similar light on your situation like it has mine.Creative Near-Sightedness. Do you have it?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have achieved some of the big goals I've set myself in life, but have always had trouble with achieving some of the more creative goals, due to the fact that, they are often rather ambiguous to begin with, for example:
How do you quantify / visualize a goal like 'I want to be a good artist' when being good is completely relative?
So firstly I want to break it down into a couple of things that might seem simple commonsense, but in my case something I need to constantly remind myself of:
The first thing is: Keep the major goal clear and simple!
Something you can understand and describe to someone simply when they ask you 'but what actually is it?'

$4 Billion? (£2.5 Billion, in real money)
Not as much as Pixar.....but then, if Lucasfilm were a house, JarJar would be the devaluing, sh*t-stained carpet a new owner would have to deal with.
And, no, I'm not going to denounce it. Disney buying Lucasfilm? That has potential, and I'm not talking Star Wars, here.
If I've read the press release on the Disney corporate website correctly, they now own EVERYTHING – including Lucasarts, which is a division of Lucasfilm.
Monkey Island/Day of the Tentacle/Sam & Max + Disney? That could be amazing!
As for the (inevitable) Star Wars 7, I'm really hoping they use the Thrawn Trilogy. In fact, I'm betting they do. Let's face it; Disney haven't ever had an original idea, that's why they keep buying up other people's work, and if they're hoping to have something released by 2015 they'll have no choice but to dive into existing material.
Of course, if they produce a Satur
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!March 17th is traditionally known as St. Patrick's Day, a time to celebrate the Irish, feast, and enjoy all things green. It commemorates Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Among numerous achievements, St. Patrick banished all snakes from Ireland, at least according to legend. Today, there are parades around the world to celebrate the day.

Change for the sake of change.Well…..that was immature drivel.Change for the sake of change.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don’t know a huge amount about the “New 52” take on the DC universe (I stopped paying attention to DC’s output when they changed their logo to look like a half-unwrapped Acme magnet) but if the Justice League: War animation is any kind of summary, I’m glad I’ve not wasted my time.
Batman now seems to think it’s impolite if he doesn’t tell everyone who he is, Wonder Woman has taken to talking like a really, really bad Shakespearean actor and Superman is a dick.
Ignoring the animation’s terrible narrative, what struck me like a rancid kipper in the face was how god-awful the character designs were. In this instance; particularly Darkseid’s. Yeah, he wore a bucket on his head in the past, but it worked! It added to his menace as a laser-firing brick of doom. You took one look at him and you knew who he was.
Watch Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. THAT version of Darkseid is an ic
The AvengersYou know that giddy, gleeful feeling that renders you incapable of doing little more than giggle like a lunatic?The Avengers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much had that from start to finish during the Avengers film (Which was released on Fair Blighty's shores as "Avengers Assemble" thanks to the past efforts of Steed and Peel).
There have only been a handful of movies that invoked that kind of response in me: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Abram's Star Trek, Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes and the first Iron Man film are those which immediately spring to mind.
Indeed; Avengers is THE best Marvel movie since Iron Man. Ace cast, brilliant story, hysterical script, a scene that will stab anyone that's followed the films leading up to this point right through the heart and a fair few more surprises.
Chief among them being; how the hell did the Hulk become such a f**king awesome character after so many naff films?
I'm gonna go see this one again!

Well....if by "world" he means "Pakistan".....
....and I think that's probably down to Obama giving the greenlight to the operation that saw US Special Forces conduct a cross-border raid into Pakistan which resulted in a very dead Bin Laden. They're still kinda cranky about that.

Some Simple AdviceBizzarely, as if the universe just went 'okay people - ask now!' Just in one day today ive has so many pm's from various boards and whatnot from young / new artists asking me about what the secret is, how do I get better, what can i do, or i wish i could make stuff like you.Some Simple Advice3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My advice is actually pretty simple. I gaurantee if you do this repeatedly everything else will take care of itself.
Step 1: Make some time for making art.
Step 2: Get everything prepared before hand, drinks, snacks, music - whatever you need to see you through the next couple of hours for your personal art jam.
Step 3: Unplug your internet.
Step 4: Make art.
I think too many people, especially young artists trying to find their way are looking too hard for something that doesnt even exist. Theres no secret formula, no awesome serum to drink. Just sit down and make art, and keep doing that over and over and over.
Free yourself of burden and distraction for that hour or couple of hours and just do it. Thats all it i
Sherlock vs ElementaryThe concept of taking the world's greatest detective out of his Victorian era setting and dropping him into 21st Century London shouldn't have worked. It should have failed as miserably as I thought it would.Sherlock vs Elementary3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hooooo. Was I proven wrong on that one.
The scant six episodes of Sherlock contain some of the best material the BBC has ever produced and proved that the detective can work his deductive wizardry in any time period.
Which is probably why CBS have gone all Chinese and are ripping it off.
When I heard that there was going to be an "American version" of the show; the eye twitched but didn't bat. This happens, and often HAS to happen. A show must fit with the scheduling, and US series are a lot longer than those on British TV, so things have to be stretched.
THEN I learned that it's NOT a remake of BBC's Sherlock, but a brand new series called "Elementary", which is "radically" different because it's set in New York.
Unsurprisingly, the Beeb are a bit miffed by this.
