about reposting and art theft (please read)i have never really made myself clear about people reposting my art aside from a few comments here and there (besides the fact that it's on my profile page) however, let me make this clear:about reposting and art theft (please read)4 months ago in Personal More Like This
do not, under any circumstances, repost my art with no sources and without asking me to do so first. if you want people to see it, reblog, share, whatever. do. NOT. repost.
i don’t want my art to be used in edits if you don’t source it properly and don’t ask me permission for using it.
if you want to use my art for rp’ing or as icons or whatever, \please\ ask me first and put credits somewhere in your blog, deviantart, website, whatever. and PLEASE ask me first. do not take watermarks off unless it's some icon or something. please.
i work hard to draw and i don’t want that effort to go to waste. obviously, i also want to have control over my art's feedback to the greatest extent possible - feedback is one of the many reasons i

"other people/normal people: let's have sex and party and drink and do drugs lololol

1) Despite masquerading behind a veil of this 'innocent' self-described "quirkiness" it's actually pretty haughty and pretentious when looked at from another angle.
2) It reeks of blatant and unabashed special snowflakism (almost in the same vein as those other posts with, "i would rather prefer to stay online and being a fanboy/fangirl than doin drugs or havin sex and party liek most kidz my age reblargh if u agree").
Actually, the entire mentality reeks of this really distorted idea that one can't be a partier or drinker/smoker and simultaneously be a frequent internet user or enjoy "nerdy" or "geeky" pursuits as well. Do you honestly think, given this day and age and how widespread and necessary computers have become, that you're the only one "addic

'Just be yourself'As a kid I had problems grasping the meaning of "be yourself". Whenever I asked what it meant, the replies were hardly satisfying. Mostly, I was told NOT to be the way I thought of as ok but to be like the kid next door, because he was so well behaved. Or someone famous, someone rich, because they were successful and the more successful you are, the better.'Just be yourself'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But even at a very young age I already noticed the contradiction here: how was I supposed to be myself if I was copying someone else? This seemed off.
In the end it wasn't a human who was able to explain the concept of "be yourself" to me.
It was a video game.
With a blue hedgehog.
The first thing I noticed about the game was how happy he looked. He was clearly doing the one thing he loved to do, the one thing he did best. And he made a dent with it.
I was impressed.
And then I was hooked.
And by the time we had traveled through three games, I was certain that I had understood the whole "be yourself" thing. And I adored him for it.
Silver liningI decided to write a journal as a tiny bit of a follow up on my health situation,Silver lining8 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
as a lot of people have been concerned about me in the past few weeks, and have been asking me how I was.
Up until now, there honestly haven't been a lot of updates.
The situation was pretty much the same. I've gotten new medication for the migraines. It took another few days off the next attack, but unfortunately also came with very bad and serious side effects that made me very sick and impacted my life greatly. Yes, I've been absent at times. And yes, I've been agitated at times --more than I'd usually be. Though some of those trolls could probably even drive a sane person to madness.
Last week I finally received some good news from the hospital.
After more than 3 months or waiting, making phone calls, negotiating with insurances and whatnot... the waiting is finally over. I'm starting my rehabilitation treatm

Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a
5 Tips on Creating Dynamic Character1. Start with a concept. This is how most of my characters start, and they usually begin with two or three word descriptors. "Demon stallion" or "spoiled dragon prince" or "psychic dolphin". Characters as this stage are more anima than anything; they are forces at play in the primordial soup of story. When an idea is this new, I try not to focus on it too much. Ideas need time to germinate, and I've found myself disappointed in times past when the potential of the character was so much more exciting than the concrete reality of what they became. Since during this time I'm developing plot and main conflict, I try to move characters around and see who I gravitate towards. This helps story and character grow organically. It's during this time that I try and determine what the character struggles with, the yin and yang of their internal difficulty. For example, I was recently asked to come up with a character for an urban fantasy roleplay, with no real details about th5 Tips on Creating Dynamic Character3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Can You Really See the Other Side?This aimless journal draws no conclusions. It provides no solution. I'm not sure one exists unless I gain magical psychic powers. It acts more of a sounding board of concerns about how story-tellers challenge themselves when coming at perspectives other than their own. You're told to "write what you know" growing up, but how better to know than to write?Can You Really See the Other Side?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's one of those sticky situations that I hope to address as a story-teller, and one I agonize over since the LAST thing I want to do is perpetuate ideas about other cultures that are simply not true.
What do you do when you're writing for a character not of your own "ethnicity" (if I can claim a particular ethnicity, being a mutt myself), but also with a distinctly different cultural experience than your own? Is it possible to write a person as an individual first and ignore the challenges they face as a minority? Can research ever possibly fill that gap in knowledge?
These kinds of questions pop up in my mind every time I
Living with catsToday Freddie discovered that she loves human food, but most importantly she discovered that I will give her absolutely anything she wants and do whatever she wants if she makes the right face. I think I am doomed.Living with cats2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every time I walk in the kitchen she will follow me prancing happily, wait until I pick something and proceed to ask me to share my food. She is a huge glutton so she will do anything until I give her food: jump on my lap, head, desk, table, chair, meow, be cute, lick my nose, follow me through every room of the house, anything.
So far she loves cheese, egg, butter, tortilla, cupcakes and hot cakes. I can't explain why, but she didn't like my Frosted Flakes and don't worry, I give her extremely small portions, just small pinches of my food. And yes I know most cats like human food, but Freddie is specially stubborn and insistent compared to the rest of my cats and it's very interesting to me XD she's a glutton.
Actually that's one of the skills that helped her surviv

- don't ask to rp just post a starter
- be as descriptive and creative as possible or else i wont answer or lose intrest in you
- Relationship provoking Rps get dirty but do not climax quickly pretend these characters are real and play it out. (if sex in incline note me instead i have underage watchers that i do not want stumble across these sorta thing. I have a reputation to uphold you know.)
-Don't start so vage with once word or one sentence beginings. Give a place. a time, a setting basically and use imagery to bring this RP to life. Remember if i love the RP i may draw it out. (free art is on the line) You may even become my Ocs new best friend or lover.
- Do stick with one Oc at a time. Rping with two will be confusing and lagging.
-Do use * & - for describing or use "...." for dialouge tho i prefer the first one.
- Do not pester me with replying if i lost interest then that's it i lost intrest.

I enjoy RPing in paragraph style with a even balance on dialogue and description. I'm not always the fastest with responses because i to try to make each on matter and not be lazy and scrap a sentence together. Normally when that happens i get bored or unmotivated to continue. Each Oc is different which mean each way the RP is constructed will be as well. So Ocs are meant for the romantic spin off on things as far as dating and whispering little nothing. For example Ivan my tough Russian king, The sexiest thing he can do is describe a battle strategy and i know not everyone find grenades to be the hottest thing. Now a OC like Dan and Jakiel are different they can go romantic whether it be fancy or just sweet little things that make the difference. However i don't base my rp around shipping. Least not anymore. Its more important to
