Character Creation GuideThere are no hard, permanently set rules for creating a character, but there are things that work and things that don't.Character Creation Guide4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
By this point most people are familiar with the term 'Mary Sue' or 'Gary Stu'. They're words used to categorize a particular brand of underwhelming characters. A 'Mary Sue' is just an extreme stereotype example, just as some other terms are. Everyone who knows of them knows how to avoid making one -- or think they know. A character that isn't a 'Mary Sue' is not immediately compelling. The avoidance of the extreme does not mean the character is awesome, it just means they don't suck at the most extreme level.
For all intents and purposes a character is a person separate from their creator. Sometimes a character might be the embodiment of what a owner wants to be or how they see themselves; we call this a self-insert, and this should be avoided. Each character is going to have a different style. Each will speak, think and communicate different from

ARTIST ALLEY 101
Hi there deviantart guinea pigs! 8D I'm preparing an outline for a panel at A-kon! I have vast experience attending conventions and displaying my work. What I've written here are my total thoughts on how to do your first artist alley. It has not been made into an outline yet. What I'm needing is feedback, questions, and conversations about this information so I can decide what I might add or take away from this discussion before creating a final outline and hand out! Please help me! I'd really appreciate any comments you feel ready to leave! I am not really a comfortable public speaker, I only feel capable once I have prepared material extensively for the occasion.
Why to do an artist alley:
AA can turn a nice profit for a lot of people, but more often than not, First Con Ever is a learning experience more than a bountiful retail extravaganza. But before you shy away from losing money, consider that you'll probably pay more for a single college class and

Jenny's Really Long Webcomic Guide
I have been getting quite a few emails and questions about starting up your own webcomic, so I decided to compile all the articles I'd written before into this one comprehensive guide.
This massive wall of text has several sections:
- How to start
- Getting the story started
- Readership & research
- The Internets!
These are my own guidelines, based on my own experiences, and these are my solutions to the problems and issues I have encountered along the way. This is not necessarily the one true way. There are probably many different solutions to any problem. And a bajillion books on this very subject too. But regardless of what I have to say, do what works for you!
So take your bathroom breaks now, because you'll be here for a bit! Sit tight and enjoy my blathering!

He would never say that!
Have you ever watched a movie or seen a play and thought, “Geeze, no one would ever say something like that.” Or maybe, “Why would they word it like that?” You know what I mean; where the delivery of the line is directed more toward the audience rather than the other character in the scene.
Maybe it's just poor acting; more likely, it's that the writer was lazy and didn't care if the line was out of character, or the writer simply added too much information

"Whatever do you mean, Octavian," she asked, sitting stiffly from her Praetor's chair. In the other chair sat her colleague, Jason Grace. The Son of Jupiter had accepted the position once again after Jackson had ceded the seat, after much insistence from Octavian that they follow the traditional rules of there only being two Praetors. It had gotten so annoying, even Reyna had considered stepping down, and letting the boys handle it. And yet, Percy didn't seem to want the posit

How to effectively develop a realistic and likable character for novels and fanfiction.
Table of Contents:
I. A Name
II. Physical Attributes
III. Style & Personality
It can be assumed that developing a plot and storyline is self explanatory. If not, you can find another tutorial for that. This tutorial will focus primarily on the thought-process of creating new characters with depth.
I. A name is the first step. Try to match the character to their name, or somehow integrate the character's name into the storyline or progression of the character's maturity and personality. For example, a character who is dark and moody would probably not be named Star unless this contradiction holds some meaning in the story. (In a comedy it would have a nice effect, but in a drama or serious story, not so much).
If you can't think of a name you can go to places like babynames.com or google for assistance

Cosplayer: One who creates a costume based on a character from a popular video game, manga, comic, movie, or graphic novel, and goes to conventions.
Convention: A large group of fans and cosplayers to appreciate the fandoms they enjoy, and have fun together.
Now that we know the basics of what these two things are, you should have no problem understanding everything I'm about to say. Whether you are a newly discovered cosplayer, or a continuing one, this guide is here to help you along the way of what goes on at cons, how to get through the hard parts, and enjoy the fun parts. Now I've been a cosplayer for only one year, but that doesn't mean that I haven't had the time to observe and even witness some off spectacles that go on at these conventions. I had to deal with them, but I figured I'd try and help the less fortunate people. My idea? Create a guide that informs people of everything they encounter. This is the Cosplay Survival Guide.

I am not going to walk you step by step through how to write your own story, but you should (hopefully) get some useful tips out of this.
I never used to organize my novels before I started writing. I have so many stories in my head, I would just pick one and start writing.

How to create an UTAUloidHow to create an UTAUloid4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Hello, thanks for clicking this.
In this tutorial, I will tell you a bit more about how to make an UTAUloid.
First, you must ask yourself:
What language do I want to make my UTAUloid sing in?
Most people use so called "recording lists", also known as "reclist" to record the sounds used for their UTAUloid. Without a reclist, recording is almost impossible for a newbie like you.
These links have a lot of great reclist.
Maybe you can find one that is for your language!
Two CV VC lists: One in Japanese, one in Bulgarian.
A (kind of) complicated English reclist.
Many CV reclists in languages such as English, Dutch, Spanish, Filipino.
Some of them are not perfect.
... What? There is none that is in your language?

A Simple and Humourous Guide:
Often we find ourselves feeling unhappy, feeling depressed and weepy (some would say whiny), but the truth is that all of us feel undeniably shitty. Therefore, having plenty of experience in this area, I have taken it upon myself to present to you this simple guide.
Righto, you all want to be happy, but none of you are. You've tried several things:
1. Posted a shitty status on Facebook hoping someone will pay attention to you.
2. Cried after no one liked your post because you have no friends.
3. Submitted your post to DA secrets so they could use it.
4. Felt better for about 30 seconds since people faved your secret.
5. If 4 didn't apply, you cried about it some more and then went to Tumblr for the next six hours.
My dear friends, this cycle is not the solution. You are not making yourself feel better, you are making all of our art look worse, especially with step 3! Hence,

1. Do not be afraid to use tutorials- A lot of people refrain from using tutorials because they want to develop their own style. There is nothing wrong with this, but using a tutorial does not mean you are just copying another artists style. Think of using tutorials as window shopping, there are a lot of things to look at and sometimes you find something worth taking a closer look at. If say, you have a hard time drawing hands and a certain tutorial has a useful tip on drawing hands there is absolutely nothing wrong with following the tutorial to improve your own style.
2. There is no shame in using reference or stock images- Again, some people refrain from doing this because they

You don’t want to think outside the box, you want to take a different approach within the box. It’s like if you’re stranded without a ride home and you think “Maybe I’ll just grow wings and fly home.” There was a test in which participants were prompted to create animals that would not be of this world. The result was that they ended up creating creatures that were awfully similar to earth creatures. It was probably stupid shit like green skinned tigers with red eyes.

I've been asked multiple times how I go about cleaning and preserving the skulls that I find so I've decided to put together a sort of FAQ/how-to regarding this subject. Please keep in mind that there is more than one "right" way to achieve things in the realm of taxidermy. This is just the way I do my skulls/bones.
You will need:
Plastic bag for picking up your treasure
A good sized flower pot
An ant hill (if possible)
Disposable plastic gloves
Nice sized metal pot kept solely for boiling skulls/bones
Plastic container for soaking the skull/bones in
Hydrogen peroxide 3%-7%
Small pokey thing for helping remove brain bits and other yuck
Super glue, tacky glue, or Elmer's glue for putting the teeth back in
Hokay. While out hiking, I've come across many different skulls/bones of animals in various stages of decomposition. The best ones are when nature has already done most of the work for you and it's already pretty clean. One of the drawbacks of finding them like this tho
