Design Contest! CLOSEDHello, everyone! >w< I have another contest for you! ^o^/Design Contest! CLOSED3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The contest is design-based, and the theme is Nature's Twins
What is 'Nature's Twins'?
It is a small series that I draw. It consists of a human and animal counterpart bearing similarity in designs/physical traits.
Here are some examples:
(These are merely examples, as mentioned below, you will be expected to design your own human/animal counterparts ^^ )
The goal is to design either a human or animal (or both, if you would like) as part of the Nature's Twins series.
For example, you can draw a person with a unique design and describe what kind of animal you had in mind in the artist's description, or vice versa. If you would like to do both the person and animal, that is more than welcomed!
Please take note that these designs are expected to be fullbody!
The deadline will be set at January 31st!

DashCon - How not to do a conventionIt seems like every week there’s a new convention going on, and this was no different. DashCon (purportedly the largest gathering of tumblr uses to date), was happening this weekend and... well... it fell apart in many gloriously horrible ways.DashCon - How not to do a convention2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First there were accusations of scamming, as the convention owners crowd-sourced $17,000 to secure the venue (which should’ve been done MONTHS in advance). All attempts to contact the hotel have resulted in the hotel saying there was no need to raise that money and that they never received any of it.
Then there were the cancelations. The Welcome to Nightvale people were flown in, but then told they weren’t going to be paid till AFTER they performed for everyone (which is already suspicious) and also told they weren’t getting reimberesed for the hotel, flight, food, etc. So sadly WTNV had to cancel at the last minute, resulting in the convention owners refunding patrons with “an extra hour in the ball pit.” The

Dialogue WorkshopI want this workshop to be somewhat different from other workshops -- I'm going to break this down into two categories: technical elements and personal advice.Dialogue Workshop3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
And I hate to say this, but the following information in this workshop only works if applied. Osmosis and good intentions do not work. Sorry.
PRE-EMPTIVE TLDR NUTSHELL
To write effective dialogue, there has to be a basic understanding of what communication is. Wikipedia sums it up nicely: the meaningful exchange of information between two or more people. It's easy but not at the same time.
This has to do with actual concepts for crafting effective dialogue. For the most part, I had to research the details but you'll be able to pick out what I added on my own. You know how I get and if you don't, you soon will. No apologies for that.
Links to the websites I used will follow.

Batman Caves to Pressure, Avengers2 Finish FilmingWarner Bros Caves To Peer PressureBatman Caves to Pressure, Avengers2 Finish Filming2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey, remember how cool it was going to be that “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” was going to premiere on the same day as “Captain America 3” in 2016? Remember how Marvel/Disney said “we’re not gonna budge or be bullied into changing our schedule?” Remember how we effectively would’ve had a Marvel vs DC movie stand off? Yeah well that’s no more. Warner Bros/DC changed their release date for “Batman v Superman” to March 25th 2016 instead.
On the surface this looks like good news for the consumer. After all, this way we can pay for BOTH movies instead of having to choose one, right? However, the optics of this move look VERY BAD for Warner Bros/DC. After “Guardians of the Galaxy” just made a KILLING at the box office this past weekend, being one of the highest grossing Marvel movie releases EVER... having Warner Bros suddenly swap out this movie’s r
Loki the Norse god: Greater than you thinkWho is Loki?Loki the Norse god: Greater than you think3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In modern popular culture Loki icon is mostly known for Marvel's Thor and Avengers villain who was basically adopted from the Norse mythology. Those who read Norse myth and folklore know that Loki is the god of fire, also known as the trickster. But initially Loki was more than just a trickster figure in Norse mythology and religion. Ages ago, far back before Middle-ages and Christianization of Northern Europe, he was much important deity: sacred and mystic, one of the All-fathers and creators of the universe.
Going over Wikipedia articles is scrapping only the tip of the iceberg (To get the depth of ancient knowledge one should have a keen insight and broad logical thinking without personal preferences and tastes). Unfortunately the information on Loki is comprised of a relatively small amount of literary material. Having Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, a few other works related to Norse mythology and also some dissertations on Loki, I wish that more information surviv
ROUND 5: FinaleFINAL MOMENTSROUND 5: Finale3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A cannon fires as the last District One Tribute bleeds out into the slow not far from Draken and Elicia. Her face appears in the sky for a brief moment, along with those of the two boys that died before her, confirming for the two District Five Tributes that they are indeed the last ones remaining in the arena.
Only one will go home.
HOW THIS WILL HAPPEN:
You have one Tribute left to take down; your Districtmate. You must both have your entries feature your opponent dying; no pulling a Katniss and Peeta here. As you two hesitate on what to do, you will hear a snarling at the edge of the woods as some new Muttations join those who chased down Velvet. Look - it's more of your Tribute friends, resurrected as monsters, slowly closing in...
The ones that died most recently are at the forefront, leading the pack as the Alpha wolves. You realize that they are still bleeding from the wounds that killed them as human beings - the mutt that must hav
Spider-Man and the AvengersBack when Marvel was bankrupt in the mid 90’s, they sold the licensing rights to many of their characters to a variety of film studios. Sony got Spider-Man. When Marvel started to try and world build their universe after many successful films, some of the companies didn’t want to comply. Universal sold the rights to The Hulk back to Marvel after the first Hulk movie bombed, which is why The Hulk was in The Avengers. FOX owns the rights to the X-Men franchise (and by extension the concept of Mutants) which is why Marvel is possibly looking towards an INHUMANS movie to help allow X-Men characters appear in their films by calling them inhumans instead.Spider-Man and the Avengers1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sony, meanwhile, has been CLINGING onto Spider-Man and refusing to let the rights return to Marvel (now owned by Disney which is a competitor of Sony). Sony was trying to world-build their own Spider-Man universe with the latest “Amazing” brand of movies, hoping to kick-start it off with a Sinister Six film.... but t
deviantART - Data Mining I.deviantART - Data Mining I4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had a smidgen of free time this summer, so I dusted off some old data mining code and got to work cataloging dA's userbase I thought I'd share my results.
The number of users on dA has grown remarkably steadily over the years, I was honestly expecting a trend with a lot more stops and starts
And you can look at that as the number of users who join each month:
There are two key regions I noticed in the data, one around the beginning of 2004 and the other around late 2006 where the number of users joining suddenly jumped, presumably due to some advertising campaign. Today you see about 9 new accounts created every minute on average.
The data before 2002 is rather spotty since there aren't quite as many users to sample from, and I'm extrapolating.
Of course what's actually more interesting is the breakdown of the types of users. All the data I've collected is looking at dA as it appears n

I draw the sketch of the painting straight on the watercolor paper. Most of the time it is just a rough idea of what I want and where, and the details come in as I paint.
My painting process takes approximately 1-8 hours depending what is the size of the painting and how detailed it is. I rarely paint anything bigger than A4, and most of my paintings are something between A5 and A4.
I prefer to finish the painting same day as I started it - I get anxious and bored easily, if the painting takes more than one evening to finish. It also tells me that my vision is somehow working if I have a smooth, quick flowing mood while I'm painting.

Charlie was before my son's time, and that led me to wax rhapsodic about how some of the most successful ad campaigns of the 1970's played upon the worst aspects of human nature. Worse, most were aimed at children. When I had finished foaming at the mouth about it all, my son advised me to write it down. Rgr that.
Starkist Charlie, the bespectacled, beret-wearing tuna whose greatest desire, and seemingly only goal in life, was to be murdered, hacked up, canned, consumed, and shat out by humans. Why? Merely to prove he was as good as the other tuna who got murdered, hacked, canned, eaten, and shat. But he didn't measure up to Starkist standards. I'm sure they suspected mercury

Age of Ultron and Feminism -SPOILERS-Reviews of Age of Ultron have been going up and one consistent theme across many of them is the “problematic” nature of Black Widow’s character arc. The general consensus seems to be that Black Widow, the bad ass female hero on a team of men, was devalued by forcing her into a relationship and making her goals “let’s be a couple” and it’s all Joss Whedon’s fault.Age of Ultron and Feminism -SPOILERS-9 months ago in Personal More Like This
As a feminist myself, I find a lot of this over simplification and anger at the movie to be kinda misguided. I haven’t been seeing my viewpoints talked about much at all, which is where this journal comes into play. So here’s why, in my opinion, the subplot for Black Widow isn’t as bad as you may think.
1. First off I want to address the growing complaints that Black Widow is somehow “weaker” for wanting to have a normal life. I think that’s a really problematic mindset to have in regards to feminism. You see, in our American society there are
