Paranormal date?Ok so I forced myself to go on a date.Paranormal date?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I complained to my sisters how cold our house was. I touched her with my icy cold hands to prove it. She jumped and said
Sis: It's hot as tits in here. What's wrong with you??
Yeah, it was 75 F indoor and 87 F outdoor. What's wrong with me? It was cold to me.
My dinner date was on the 4th floor. The door literally would NOT open on 4th floor...lol
The random guy happened to be in the elevator with me was slightly freaking out and about to ring the alarm.
I just leaned against the wall opposite to the metal doors, laughed to him,"This always happens when I try to date."
(Minor problems like cars breaking either me or my date. Last minute cancellation...etc)
Well, he pressed 5th floor. The elevator didn't move until a couple of frustrated pressing around later, it reluctantly carried us to 5th floor and released us.
Anyways, half way through the date, he was nice, polite. We were laughing until he asked for my real name...I said "Aidyn." It was like

It's really choppy and suuuuuper scribbly because I took like 30 seconds to draw each frame. Please fill in the gaps and gloss over the art with your wonderful imagination! I made it in Windows Movie Maker which is an absolutely evil program =o=
I'll try to fix up the ugly pictures and maybe add some color when I have time, and reupload another version later :b (don't know when though.) For now feel free to watch this one and laugh at it huhuhu

I went to sleep yesterday and then my mom came to turn off my alarm saying I should sleep and not wake up at 7am because it's holidays *pfff yeah tell me about it*. So she took my phone to do it, but I had changed the wallpaper.
In the past I had this one *SHUN OF COURSE*
To which she said "Ooooh! Is he drawing stars in the sky? :iconilikeitplz:"
"No Mom, he's just flying a kite."
Well....close enough if you consider what happened yesterday :iconorzplz:
She saw my new wallpaper which is this one:
And it went like this:
Me: "Yeah mom I drew it alright let me sleep" *mumbling because it was 2am lol I never really show her my drawings or admit that I drew something so yup* *no I'm not shy who said that?*
Mom: "Pretty! Is that an airplane?"
Me: *jumps up from bed* ARE YOU SERIOUS?
Mom: Yeah I think those look like tires
Me: YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS :icondurrhurrplz: *cracking up like crazy*

why people hate the hetalia fandom - rantThis one is pretty long.why people hate the hetalia fandom - rant5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the past months, the Hetalia fandom (which I was never much involved in in the first place) has grown considerably. Sometimes this is good; it's always nice to have more people share your interests. And I am by no means a kind of person who starts to hate something once it's popular. I still love Hetalia, whether or not people agree with me, but even I, as someone who supports the...whatever you'd call it...am starting to get sick and tired of the fandom. No wonder people hate Hetalia, when they see the kind of moronic behaviour I keep seeing around the internet. When it gets to the point that a hardcore fan such as myself is shaking her head in disgust, people need to shape up, Jesus. As someone who likes Hetalia, I really don't want people seeing my page and going "Ew, it's one of them", and then writing me off completely as a moron.
Also I'd like to stop right here and say I am not calling out anyone I know personally or anyone here, I
My Drawing Tips! : DDrawing Portraits -- TipsMy Drawing Tips! : D4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many people have asked me for tips and stuff in drawing, so I might as well write a post on it.
1. Find a good picture to draw
I cannot emphasize this enough; choosing the right picture to draw is as important as drawing it. And when I say right picture, I mean that the subject chosen has an interesting expression or the shot is taken at an interesting angle. Most importantly, the picture must have good details (relatively large resolution) and good lighting. If you just happen to start drawing, pick a picture where the face is not at an angle (the subject is outright facing you). It is hell lot more difficult to draw faces tilted at an angle. I still cannot do it well to date.
2. Do some treatment on your selected picture (only applies to picture found from the web)
After you found such picture, enhance the picture even further, by editing the contrast and brightness of the picture. For me, I always turn a colored picture into black and white, and making sure
why you should watch TOONAMI saturday night!after a huge show of support from an april fools' toonami broadcast, toonami is actually back! but there's some concerns from longtime fans that it won't be the same and are refusing to watch it.why you should watch TOONAMI saturday night!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
i can understand that some people were expecting toonami to be just like how they remember it, but there's a few good reasons why it won't be, why it shouldn't be, and why you should tune in anyway.
the biggest complaint about the return of toonami seems to be that they are not showing any of the old animes.
first off, toonami doesn't have as high of a budget as it did during its daytime block, and the cost to license some of the shows like dbz are even higher now than they used to be. even if this wasn't the case, [as] can't wipe an entire 6 hours of programming for newly licensed shows in an instant. axing 3 (kekkaishi, FLCL and Big O), and adding 2 (deadman wonderland, casshern sins) is probably as much as they can handle in a single swipe - and i think it's a good start. FLCL and Big O are

I don't want to be big on YouTube, that's for sure. I've never liked getting in-front of the camera, I don't have the time or ambition to work on animations anymore, and I certainly can't crank out videos as fast as some of the big guys over there. It's a huge competition and I just don't want to have anything to do with that. I think my youtube page is marked private and you have to have specific links to view anything. I might make an odd video here or there, but they're most likely just goofy things I do for fun, not for any sort of attention or recognition.
I'm curious about how I should move forward with DA. I think a majority of my haters are outraged that I'm popular on DA and that I'm content with drawing simple cartoons when I'm obviously talented enough to do more comple

A bit about Smeargle Kid: He doesn't yet have a name, I'm working on it, lol. Anyway, he's about 11-years-old. He's fairly innocent and he loves to paint (kind of self-explanatory). He has a tail that excretes a green, paint-like fluid, just like the pokemon Smeargle. Because of this, green has always been his favorite color. That's about all that I have about him, haha.
1) He needs to keep his hair style, his eye color, and his ears. You can change his hat and the rest of his clothing, but he

It will show you a timed slideshow of images to draw. I usually set the timer to 60 seconds. Drawing quickly helps you get in a large quantity of work, strengthens your ability to draw poses, and keeps you from having too much emotional attachment to your drawings. Here's some tips for getting the most out of these quick poses:
Relax. No one is going to see these drawings, so it doesn't matter if they're bad. You can throw them all away if you want to. So don't get frustrated - what matters is that you're drawing!
Draw small. When drawing quick poses, I find that it helps to keep your drawings on the smaller side. I can usually fit about six figures on one page.Don't worry about details. Your goal is to capture the overall balance

Difference between selling Art and selling MeatGreetings Ryceballs. Today I am gonna be talking about the differences between selling art and selling meat.Difference between selling Art and selling Meat3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is absolutely fascinating how different the two can be! :iconyoudontsayplz: ... Well first of all, an artist likes their work to be appreciated and let the audience see for themselves whether they want to buy their artwork or not. While a butcher (ESPECIALLY ASIAN ONES LIKE THE ONE IN THE ARTWORK) only cares about selling the meat and making the profit, they have no sentimental feelings towards what they are selling, because if they do then there won't be any meat to sell right? One of the main rule of a butcher is to have no emotional attachment towards the animals, because they know sooner or later the animal needs to be chopped up. Well what about artists? Well they put their blood, sweat and tears into their artwork to make it as pretty as possible, all in hopes that the audiences would enjoy their art as much as the artist enjoy making them. NOW here's the thing thoug

For those of you who don't know, or have terminally shot term memories: I have been out in Australia for two Supanova conventions! I journaled the first part of my adventures here:
Before leaving I had sent out a plea for help a the conventions, and it turns out people are really quite nice, and I was inundated with offers! So, like in some weird online blind date thing, I chose a few people who I'd never met before to help out behind my tables XD Sounds like a recipe for disaster, but it was a recipe for awesomeness! The girls were delightful, worked really hard, and were not at all like the weird internet strangers your Mum warns you about. It was great to feel like I wasn't alone out there

I know I have been rather silent here for a while, so I want to update you guys a bit. First the good news: I have been happily working away at toning Crash’n’Burn volume 2, so now all that remains is toning two thirds, and lettering. (yay, the finish line is slowly approaching!)
The bad news is, I have experienced a setback concerning the release of Crash’n’Burn vol 1.
Once again my publisher has decided to push back the release date without telling me about their decision. This is the third time now, and it is getting rather frustrating for me also. Sadly I have not been given any reasons for their decision. Currently the release is supposedly February 2014. But the way things have been going, I cannot guarantee that it’s the last time it’ll be pushed back.

It is very shocking to see how females are being deprived in India. I am truly ashamed. But the most shocking thing that I have come across to know very recently from a friend of mine is that in a porn site, the 16th Dec Delhi rape case girl's pic was being used as an Ad with a message saying..

Symbol(s) for the non Premium DeviantsHello my Ryceballs. So eversince DA's recent symbol changes, I have been hearing a lot of complaints. Mostly about how regular non premium members don't even get a symbol. It makes them feel like they are not important. Its ok I hear ya I hear ya. And you know me, I am all about the people. Ry-Spirit cares. So I thought about this a lot and try to think of an appropriate symbol that best suits our non premium friends, at the end I came up with a symbol... WELL I say a symbol but its more like a string of symbols. I feel like this is the only option for it to work.
