CT WIPs - Here They Come Just In TimeA couple of things: GIMP lags on me now which makes it a pain on me and my laptop to record process videos. And since tumblr has a following size that's a third of my dA, a lot of people may be missing my WIP shots. So I hope it won't bother anyone that I make and update journals that show my process. I hope you'll find them interesting and inspiring. And also, I hope people will stop asking me what program I work in lol on top of the fact that it's listed in my interests under Tools of the Trade, I've also had a FAQ made so please check those before asking questions. Further info about my process will be located under each WIP shot!CT WIPs - Here They Come Just In Time6 months ago in Personal More Like This

Bad Teachers and Egotistical Jerkwads Good lord, another journal. Well, sometimes I go for a month without writing one, so suffer! :iconinuevillaughplz:Bad Teachers and Egotistical Jerkwads3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I've been asked about this recently, so thought I'd write about it just in case someone else might relate or find it encouraging.
A lot of people are surprised to hear that I have only been painting since 2011. Well, it's true . I had coloured a few line arts here and there before that, but I never really tried at painting. I was dabbling and just slapping on colour, not bothering to figure out the programs or anything. Because I truly didn't believe I could do it.
Backing up a bit, I'm someone who was a traditional artist. I have been drawing with pencils and paper since I was just a little tyke. Naturally, I wanted everything to do with art in school. :iconhandsomeonionplz:
And that's where this little tale turns dark and mildly depressing :icon0inuscreamplz:

Hmm... interesting... this could approve BolinxEska theory... xD. But, i just cant ship Bolin and Eska because... you know, Bolin is all energetic-goofy-GORGEOUS and Eska seems like the "Mai" of Legend of Korra.
Who knows, maybe a nice girl is behind that "androgynous creepiness"
And another interesting this to note is the background. I does not look like the south pole to me, it's more like they where in republic city. But both of them are wearing that big winter coats; it looks like the South pole has had a lot of reconstruction in the last 70 years...
What do you think about this?
Oh, and here you have a fan made animation based on that screenshot

.: A Winter Romance Contest :.A Winter Romance Contest.: A Winter Romance Contest :.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Summer romance's may be fleeting at times, but winter love is where the magic is. There's always something enchanting about the frost on windshields, that fluffy white snow nipping at your mittens and your nose all red before coming inside for some coco and a warm heater (or even better, a good old fashion fireplace). Winter's well known for bringing out the traditions and little children in all of us this time of year.
It would be simply too easy to tell you to have at writing a Winter Romance without throwing in a twist! You're inclined to write your winter romance and let your imagination's simply go with the flow, but to keep a fairly consistent flow, there's an additional section that you must take into consideration when writing. Your submission must not only focus on a winter romance, but try to also incorporate one of these cryptic ideas (up to author's interpretation):

Hiccup x sad! Reader- Do You Wanna Build A Snowman Do you wanna build a snowman?Hiccup x sad! Reader- Do You Wanna Build A Snowman1 week ago in Personal More Like This
Come on, let's go and play!
I never see you anymore
Come out the door
It's like you've gone away...
Your room is ice cold. But you don't care anymore.
Your mother and father died of a strange illness and you just... Can't go anywhere without thinking of them.
You slowly open your drawer and pull out your mothers old necklace.
With a heavy heart, you slip it on and tap on the freezing cold window.
"C'mon girl," you whisper, waking up your snoozing Night Fury.
She opens her eyes sleepily, and you hug her tightly.
We used to be best buddies
And now we're not
I wish you would tell me why!
D/n (dragons name) licks your face, making your h/c hair smell like dragon spit.
This would have normally made you pretend to be mad, but you don't even show an emotion, you just sob into her black scales.
Do you wanna build a snowman?
It doesn't have to be a snowman...
You hear a metal leg thumping up your stairs, and d/n instantly growls and stand

Did you know? (Authors and writers read this!!)Hi guys!Did you know? (Authors and writers read this!!)1 month ago in Literature Features More Like This
I recently discovered something very interesting. As I didn't know this, I thought some of you might also not know this, thus it could be helpful (even life changing) to share this info.
Did you know that the key to selling your book successfully, you need to start with the marketing process of your book months in advance. The ideal is to start with this before even start writing the book, but it will still be effective if you start a few months before your manuscript is done. You need to have a battle plan about how you're going to sell your book, before you are finished writing it. Here's a few articles on this marketing strategy that might help you make the difference between selling a thousand books and zero.

Sorry to bother you...Hello all,Sorry to bother you...5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I thought I'd take a moment today to write a journal which is probably long overdue. I believe there is a common misconception floating around that CVs are so busy, that when you send us DD Suggestions, or other messages, you are being a bother.
Quite regularly the DD Suggestions I receive start with something along the lines of "I am sorry to bother you..." or "I know you are busy but.."
I'd like to assure you all that no suggestions you send, or any other type of contact made with me (or any other CV for that matter) is something to feel sorry or bad about (unless you are legitimately harassing us or something).
I've often heard community members talk about how many notes CVs get daily (often this number appears to be near 100) and I feel the need to say that this is very far from the truth. On average I receive maybe 5 notes a day. On a slow day I may not get any at all and on a busy day I may get up to 10. While I can not speak

Comic SynopsisHere it is, the official synopsis of The Cloud Maker......Comic Synopsis5 months ago in Personal More Like This
In the beginning when the world was created, Father Time gave his three children a world to look after. Isis, the sister and the youngest, was given the sky to care for. Rikus, the younger brother, was given the land to watch over. And Altus, the oldest brother, was given the ocean to protect. When a one-thousand year feud broke out between the once peaceful siblings, it caused chaos in the small world that was once in their protection. Each sibling had a native species from their respective terrains to guard as well as the land they owned. With the siblings fighting, the races from sky, land, and sea soon followed. Now after a millennium, the world is dying. One young boy from the sky named Ari must embark on a quest, which has more importance to the world than he ever could have imagined. This boy has be given the task of saving a dying race as old as time; he has to save the Cloud Makers.

Structure and Design
• If you are writing a short story, does your story begin at the moment of maximum tension and end at the most aesthetically satisfying place?
• If you are writing a short story, is the conflict immediately clear? Does the conflict generate some essential change in the characters or their situations?
• For longer prose, how much explanation is in the beginning? Too much? Too little?
• Are your sentences of appropriate length - is there variety, or are there too many choppy/run-on sentences and if so do they serve a particular purpose?
• Have you clearly differentiated each of your main characters and their primary goals?
• Do they each have a personality of their own?
• Are all of your characters essential? Are there too many or too few?
• If your characters are named, are their names fitting and believable for the sto

Why I ship Jack/ElsaI ship Jack/Elsa because not only does their relationship make thematic sense, it's believable and much more so than Jack Frost with Rapunzel. Jack and Elsa have sisters they would spend eternity alone for. Elsa would definitely learn to let loose with Jack around. She doesn't want to be left alone. She ran away because she had no other choice, because she wasn't understood, and because she didn't want to harm anyone with her powers. Unless you've been in their shoes before, how do you help someone the most? Enter Jack Frost, who can help Elsa realize the error of her ways by reminding her how to have fun again by being playful with her and Elsa retaliating by just being herself. Their personalities complement the other nicely so this works well without a flaw. It's a match made in Heaven. Jack is also older than Elsa by being immortal.Why I ship Jack/Elsa7 months ago in Personal More Like This
