Improving your writing by eliminating the bad stuff and stocking up on the goods
Hey, aspiring writers. Is your New Year's resolution to improve your writing? I know you're out there. Whether any of you are reading this is anyone's guess, but I'm being as hopeful as I can. If any of you are looking for improvement, simply skim this journal entry and, hopefully, take away some enlightenment in a small doggy bag.
I've been taking note of writing tutorials and would like to share with you my knowledge in the following categories:
1) Cliches: spotting them, avoiding them, and fixing them
2) Plot development
3) Characters: names, development, and what not to do
5) Being accurate
4) Additional topics
5) Gremmer and spelingg
6) Self and peer editing

Why I Believe In Shadow+AmyShadow the Hedgehog cutscene is called "the power of love" and Shadow is talking about Amy in it. There have been tons of rumors of Silver being Shadow and Amy's kid/grandkid/greatgrandkid, also in the original first group photo for SA2B Shadow and Amy were holding hands. PLUS one of the SEGA producers compared Shadow and Amy to this show called InuYasha, where the two characters "InuYasha" and "Kagome" have the same personalities of Shadow and Amy are are bonded by a red string of fate and are in love.Why I Believe In Shadow+Amy1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Amy Rose has also shown to be somewhat fond of Shadow, having an unusual amount of faith in him when he seems to lack faith in himself. Being a somewhat equally willed person, she tends to help Shadow regain sight of his purpose, and keep him in check. She has also more than once realized the good in him when others failed to

Don't forget to look backMany people say that looking back is a bad thing to do, because it makes you dwell on the past and is getting you nowhere.Don't forget to look back4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I beg to differ! Because I think it doesn't hurt to look back on what you already achieved, every once in a while.
In contrary; it can be a great motivation.
I came to DeviantArt, almost 7 years ago, with close to no expectations.
To provide you a bit of a background; As a kid, I used to show my drawings to all the people around me (to the level of sheer annoyance). And in the early years of the internet, I posted my writings and drawings on several Dutch forums, where I got quite the feedback on it. But as social media gradually took over the internet, and the small forums I used to reside on died a slow death, I realized the stage of getting feedback there would soon be over for me.
DeviantArt was in that sense the next place to move to. A community that wasn't killed by the influence of social media. But it was a hard place to move to.

Dance Pantsed, afterthoughts (MAJOR SPOILERS!!!)If you didn't catch the premiere of Dance Pantsed (the PPG special that just aired 1/20/2014) then DO NOT READ THIS JOURNAL UNLESS YOU WANT SPOILERS OR DON'T CARE FOR SPOILERS.Dance Pantsed, afterthoughts (MAJOR SPOILERS!!!)6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Also, keep in mind that you should always form your own opinions AFTER experiencing something for yourself. These are just my personal reflections and criticisms. While there are several things that bugged me about the special, it in no way deserved the massive amounts of hate that it got simply for looking different. It got hate because people took one look and threw a fit. If you plan to read this journal before seeing the special, please do not go in watching it with a bias.
Overall, it's fantastic for what it is. But there are things, good and bad, that I feel should be addressed.
1 - For a TV special, the animation is fantastic. The use of CG helps the characters come to life and take on a physical depth we couldn't get from the old series.
2 - The art is beautiful and I

A thing or two about styleYears ago, when I was still a lot younger and I still drew like this, I used to admire people that had a certain drawing style that distinguished them from other artists.A thing or two about style6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
No matter how strange or extreme it looked, at least they had something unique. Something that made people instantly know it was their work. I didn't have that at the time. Throughout my youth, I've been influenced by Dragonball Z, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, mecha anime, anime movie posters,
Free Artwork is not something I doAnd you shouldn't either.Free Artwork is not something I do1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I only direct your attention here because I receive a LOT of requests of for free artwork, whether it be logos, character design and sometimes even graphic novels all intended to be for free.
I'm a working professional making a living with my art. So clearly I won't be doing art for free, when it's my job to do it. BUT, I also support the idea that even artists who work freelance or even just as a hobby shouldn't work for free.
Please check out this video by Stephen Silver who explains this way better than I ever could

Growing up, I always felt out of place. I was not born in the United States so moving to New York in the United States of America at the age of six was an... interesting change. (I was born in Nigeria.) Of course, I had an accent. This made it difficult for me to talk to other children. However, I was an outgoing child so I would continue to try my hardest to make friends. However, I did not make any friends in that state. Lucky for me, I had a number of cousins and other family members in New York so I never really needed to make outside friends.
Oddly, my family did not stay in New York long. After a year of living in the big apple, my family and I took a bus to Powder Springs, GA. That was my first experience with true bullying. As new immigrants, my family wasn't well off. The other children did not

Colour Pallet Challengei really want to challenge artists with some colour pallets.Colour Pallet Challenge4 months ago in Personal More Like This
so if you want a challenge, comment on here and i will give you a colour pallet.
the rules are simple: you are NOT ALLOWED to use any other colour but the colours i've given you.
(you may darken or lighten the colours, but you can NOT change them to a different colour)
you may use black and white for the drawing, including grey.
think of this as paint, and you have limited colour choice. you can mix with any of the colours you have.
this isn't a contest, but a fun little challenge you can test yourself with.
(you can also tag me when you're done, if you want. just type in :devX0Shiny0: without the X)

Multiple OC Questionnaire MEMEHey guys! It's been a long time since I've posted anything. First of all, I would like to apologise to all of you who are still owed prizes, you will get them soon, I promise!Multiple OC Questionnaire MEME2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I have a challenge for all of you! A multiple OC Questionnaire Meme! It's very simple - pick six of your OC's and put them to a character - Eg. John Doe as Character 1. If you go onto Word you can replace 'Character 1' and so forth with the name of your character through the document, to make it easier. Don't look at any of the questions before you allocate your OC to a character, because that's spoling the fun.
Then, once you've done that - enjoy yourself, answer all the questions and post up the completed questionnaire on the site!
I look forward to seeing what you guys can come up with!
If Character 1 and Character 2 were to fight, who would win?

go awayYES, I draw animal/monster characters. NO, that does not make me a furry, nor does it somehow make my characters "childish" or "immature", or inferior to other peoples human characters.go away5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am sick and tired of this attitude, that animal, alien or monster characters are childish. I'm telling you right now, draw whatever you want. You like sparkle? Draw sparkle. You want to draw furries? I don't see a reason why you shouldn't. Even if neither of those things (sparkly stuff or furries) are my preferred genre, I'm not going to judge you for drawing them.
also important to note!!!! For the love of god, MY CHARACTERS ARE NOT FARIS (0shiny0's species) Jesus Christ people, they're like twice as tall and ten times as heavy as fari. Just, stop thinking saying, or asking if they're fari. With the exception of Nebulai and Sabrina, none of my characters are fari. They are almost entirely cheebi or some other species I made up
please, just stop. I want to be polite about it, and I thought it wa
