So... What are you?((Before anyone blows me up, this is not mainly about supporting my beliefs, but telling everyone to chose what they think is right, and to not just pick a side because it "best matches them." Morals are yours to keep, and you don't have to fit exactly into any of these categories.))So... What are you?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What am I? What is my stance?
I would be a Republican,
but I support less spending.
I would be a Democrat,
but I believe in equal taxation and am for lax gun control.
I would be Conservative,
but I support legalizing gay marriage.
I would be Liberal,
but I support the death penalty.
I would be Feminist,
but I'm anti-abortion.
I would be anti-government,
but I don't want chaos.
No matter which of these "clubs" I try to fit into, they always kick me out.
So I stand alone, by myself, and decide not to be a part of any of it.
I can do without a label, what matters are my beliefs.
Same goes for everyone else.
Don't alter your beliefs just to fit into some category.

1000 Point Giveaway! (deadline 1/7/14)Hey guys, it's been awhile!1000 Point Giveaway! (deadline 1/7/14)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been incredibly busy and I know I said I'd be active some time in November but life can get pretty crazy. Apologies to those who read LoE, I'll try and continue with that once finals are over and life settles down a bit.
Anyways, since I've been gone I've had no time to run any contests. Hopefully in January I'll be able to host another writing contest and hopefully that one will go a lot more smoothly than last time. That one was the first one I ever ran so I didn't really know what I was doing. @_@ I know I have a few comments and notes to go through and hopefully I'll manage but that might overwhelm me a bit. xD' So it'll be last on my list. If it's urgent, just send another note with the title "urgent" and I'll make sure to read and respond to that first.
Now on to the 1000 point giveaway. This will again be a feedback giveaway but if you don't have time, fav this journal for a chance at 100 points!
In order to participate for the bigger prizes you

I joined Deviant Art I few years back bright eyed and hopeful. I tried to show case some talent I felt I had and over a period gained a handful of friends. Like most folks in the last several years the hard times came and with that I slowly faded away from this friendly art community. With some help from friends we reopen DreamOrchid's doors with a new website (www.dreamorchid.com), official DreamOrchid face book page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/DreamOrchid/189645937780364), and even a twitter account. Please feel free to like us if you wish. With all this said I'm back with a bang. I decided since I hit 20k views and with the renewal of a subscription to throw a contest.

The idea is pretty simple, its been done before by almost every one who has ever hosted a contest. Not original but still, its fun.
Draw your Original Character with Shia (My OC). There see, simple?
You can use any Original Character. As long as they belong to you. They can be doing anything you want them to be doing and they can be in any pose. I don't mind mature content as long as its not over 18. Or I can't view it. (ANOTHER YEAR YET).
Shia's new outfit reference is here:
However if you wish to draw her in this outfit you may:
(Credit goes to for that image for the original drawings of it are awful).
You may also choose this old design:
Or finally, this one:

EVEN MOAR SKIN SWATCHES!
The best way to improve is to draw from real life. That's the best way to learn. If you don't know how to draw a certain angle of a hand or an arm, you shouldn't fudge it, you should always look it up and figure out how to draw it right. Hiding the hands behind the body is a no-no, people! The proof of bsing is easy to see: http://neofox.deviantart.com/journal/ART-knowledge-is-power-282518336
But often it's very hard to weed through the crap to find good stock to use as reference. So here I am, doing the work for you and naming some helpful resources.
I've been teaching my friend Kitteh how to draw, so I'm learning first hand just what steps to take to improve.
There's one very special thing you must do to improve. With this special thing you can go from amateur to pro. And that's PRACTICE. You can get all the references and tutorials you want, buy all the books, save all the tutorials and referenc

Vis's close friends~
My allies and enemies change too frequently to bother keeping track of them. But I'd like to think I know who my friends are... I consider someone to be my friend when I can trust them at least to a degree, I feel comfortable and relaxed around them, and I enjoy their company-- someone I don't need to constantly struggle to get along with, or at least not anymore (though, the friendships that require some work are the most rewarding). Not many people can replicate this feeling in me, so please don't be offended if I don't consider you a friend. It doesn't mean I think you're a bad person.

Tips On Writing With VisessentiaSo, I have been laid out in bed for over two and a half months now. *sigh* I would hate to complain about something I have enjoyed up to this point, but my belly is beginning to make it hard for me to breath. Honestly, I'm going to pop any day, and this baby just continues to be stubborn... I guess I would not want to leave, either. But, really... I cannot walk witohut help from Vernus or Eleanore anymore. And you all know what happens when I cannot content myself... I start reading fanfiction, creepypasta, and studies. And when I do that, I think far too much about them. And as such, I have something fairly interesting to comment about it with. Maybe I can bore my child out of my womb.Tips On Writing With Visessentia1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Attn: College students (need a good laugh?)'twas the night before finals when all through the houseAttn: College students (need a good laugh?)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
noisy creatures were stirring (squished many a mouse)
my stockings were holey from too many wears
had hopes that I'd find at least one decent pair
the answers were safely all tucked in my head
while visions of memory loss filled me with dread
my dog with his yelping and me with a cold
(this college thing really is getting quite old)
then out on my lawn I heard neighbors chatter
I rushed out to see what the heck was the matter
on the way out my door window broke
I tripped over Fido (was it all a bad joke?)
the moon overhead with it's odd, eerie glow
cast it's light on the problem down here below
when what to my weary eyes should appear
two flat tires in front, and one in the rear
how would I drive her, so listless and sick
I knew at that moment I'd better think quick
more rapid my heart as I dwelt on my plight
my neighbors now chuckled and grinned with delight
now dang-it, I said, to all who would listen
what I need
