Últimamente he visto muchas series con actores adolescentes y prácticamente todos son lo mismo: protagonistas que son entre los menos populares, que son los arraigados o que son los perdedores que quieren ser populares; los populares son los ricos, porristas, presidentes de la escuela, los malos y/o que odian siempre al protagonista; los bullyng son de los populares o los que visten de rufián con el cliché de hacer maldades, insultar o golpear; los nerds son los que usan lentes, con granos y risa estúpida; y siempre, siempre... la chica mas linda de la escuela tiene estos dos papeles a escoger, 1 ser la mas dulce caritativa chica popular con alma de ángel o 2 ser una perra (para no decir put&) millonaria popular mandona de la escuela (y eso le va también para el chico pero no se le dice perro, sino perra también)
No han visto que ninguna serie a cambiado esos o romper esos cliches para ver como son los adolescentes actuales?

Orange Ribbon Day!!As some of you may know, April 13th, along with being many other important things (4/13, John's birthday, update day, yeah), is an event called Orange Ribbon Day. Here is the post for those unfamiliar with it:Orange Ribbon Day!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I saw this post going around and thought it was a really great idea! Now I know this can be an every day thing, but what if we chose one day that all the homestucks would wear an orange ribbon for sure?
“What day should we wear it” you might ask. Well, how Does April 13th sound? The fateful day homestuck began as well as our very first kids first day of existence!
So We can think of this as a meetup day!!
Where: ANY PUBLIC PLACE!! (mall, taco bell, Pizza hut, combination taco bell and pizza hut. wherever!)
Time: ALL DAY!!
What to wear? At least wear the Orange ribbon. If you want to wear anything else, its up to you.
So a little summary:
Wear Orange Ribbon
Go into public
Meet other Homestuck
Have lunch/ become friends
Talk about OTPs

Live the dream, don't talk about it!Doug TenNapel, independent comics creator, is an inspiration to me in many ways. He has a fun, accessible art style that is dramatic and fresh. His story telling is always askew in the best of ways. I don't think I've read one of his graphic novels without having some smiles and a surprise or two along the way. On top of that, he is outspoken about almost everything in his life. (I think of him as the Rush Limbaugh of comics- oh man, that sounds really bad, but early Rush, not present day Rush, if that helps.) I agree with most things he states on Facebook. BUT- the thing I am most inspired about him is his drive (in the old days we would call that "work ethic"). The guy does NOT give up. Because of that, he single-handedly will put out a new graphic novel a year. While creating a webcomic. While pitching new TV show development ideas in Hollywood. While running a half marathon. While working freelance jobs.Live the dream, don't talk about it!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Working for free is the answer. You might balk at this because some critics say this gives the appearance that there is NO value to skill and talent. However- consider this: Working for free gives you amazing experience. It allows you to practice on someone else's project, see your work in print, establish a reputation and learn- big time. People who won't work for free WILL pay for a course! What better learning experience is there than to work with a client- such as a library or an independent book store or a school- producing poste
Improving image composition!Sometimes the details of our illustration look great, but then when we step back and look at the composition... it's a little boring or muddy or crowded or our eyes wander away from the parts that looked so good up close... Where are our focal points? Why doesn't this illustration grab my attention and hold it? Composition can make or break a piece. Here are some links that show examples of good and bad compositions and describe why certain layouts are more successful than others. Various tips and rules are described and illustrated.

This is a subject I've had on my mind for quite some time for a number of reasons, and it's recently coalesced into a semi-soluble form so here we go.

The Scottish Highlands
“Outlander” is a new cable series about a young woman who time travels from England at the end of WWII to 1743 Scotland, right before the Second Jacobite Uprising. The science fiction time travel and Scottish civil war themes are simply elaborate devices to justify the heroine engaging in a sizzling “bodice–ripper” romance. The location shoot in the lush eye–popping Scottish Highlands provides a beautiful backdrop for all the hot romance. Even if British reserve, Scottish resolve and cable sex aren’t your cup of tea, the amazing landscapes framing the tale are well worth your time.

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

Tip of the Day: Dealing with StressStress is the root for many health problems. It's not necessary. Just do what you need to do. Stop stressing.Tip of the Day: Dealing with Stress3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In high pressure situations if I start stressing I will think what is the worst that could happen and how could I bounce back from that. Once I see that I would still be ok and be able to come back from that difficulty... then the stress disappears. Then I start imagining what would it feel like to be successful and that gets me excited to continue towards my goals.
Stress is something that everyone deals with in their own ways but if you don't have an effective way to deal with it, feel free to try my method.

Trying to Improve?Are you trying to improve?Trying to Improve?4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Looking for new ways to improve?
Just to IMPROVE?
There's one thing that people always repeat(I'm not trying to offend anybody) is that when they watch another artist who's art is very good, they either think, "I won't be able to be that good" and feel like they will never improve.
Sad thing, but true.
Only a few people think about improving to get to the same level as their favorite artist.
BUT! There's always room for improvement! ;D
Well, then. I'm not so sure if this is helpful or not and if you will learn something new or not, but, continue on, please. c:
Ever heard of 'practice makes perfect'? I know some people out there practice until they hands feel dead(not literally) but don't give up!
