The next couple of years promises to be full of comic book superheroes no matter where your allegiance falls in the DC/Marvel divide.
Following in The Avengers’ big screen footsteps, the Justice League of America (JLA) is finally getting its own live-action movie, even though the Justice League came along way before The Avengers were even born. A quick stroll down comic book lane reveals how the JLA got

The Dancer by BloodshotInk
The night I met Jessie she was beautiful. She swayed to the almost intolerably loud music as if her bones were made of it. She was something unknown. I remember the sharp cut of her hair had run across her cheek, parallel to her carved-out cheekbone. It looked like a wig, I wanted to touch it. I wanted to touch her, and see if she felt like plastic. Who could ever believe that someone so perfect could be so real. I regret that. I regret doubting her reality.
Eventually she bought me a drink; she called it an Appleté but trapped in the pulsating fuchsia lights of the club it looked purple. It tasted like jealousy; s
NaNo is Around the CornerOnce again, we find ourselves getting ready for the insanity that is NaNoWriMo. If you've never heard of it, NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. That means in the span of thirty days, participants will write 50,000 words.NaNo is Around the Corner2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
1,667 words per day if they're writing every day.
2,273 words per day if they're only writing on weekdays.
6,250 words per day if they're only writing on weekends.
Either way it's a pretty hefty feat, and not something to walk into unprepared. Even if you're a "by the seat of your pants" type of writer.
Which is where planning and plotting come in. Sure, if you're a pantser, you can sit down and bang out a couple chapters, maybe a whole book, but can you do it in a month? Probably not. At least not without a little bit of preparation. For all the pantsers and everyone else, compiled here is a short list of things to keep in mind, ways to prepare, what no
4chan compromisedUNNECESSARY NECESSARY PREFACE!4chan compromised7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm well aware that not all of 4chan is "evil" and that not all people who participate or visit 4chan are "evil" either. This journal uses large sweeping generalizations because that's helpful for having a larger discussion. I'm not interested in minutia, I'm interested in the big picture here. And sadly, even if you love 4chan, it has a reputation which precedes it and you cannot deny that. So please, don't comment here with "But not ALL 4chan is bad!" remarks, ok? I know. I understand.
So here’s the latest that I’ve been able to discover about the GamerGate movement. Apparently 4chan and other like-minded websites have been “compromised.” Mods are now banning or deleting threads and discussions about GamerGate. This, naturally, has led many to assume that 4chan is “under control” by Social Justice Warriors (SJW for short) and a lot of people are leaving 4chan now to find other websites (or poss

The Use of Adverbs in Fiction WritingAdverbs are dying. Over the barren wasteland of Adverbia, a cold sun sets over the crest of tangled, bony branches on gunmetal-gray trees, silhouettes of mountains in the distance, and long shadows stretched over cracked, curling pads of parched clay.The Use of Adverbs in Fiction Writing7 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Why? Why are adverbs relegated to the path of the dinosaur in fiction writing? What's so doggone wrong with adverbs, anyway??
Well, there's a few simple reasons for it -- and maybe there are a lot of reasons for it, but I've identified a few simple ones.
The goal here, of course, isn't to make you feel foolish or inadequate if you're one of those adverb-happy writers, but to demonstrate a better way for you to improve your writing. For those of you still in school below the University level, think about this: you can blow your English or creative writing teachers out of the water with this information, and won't you be the envy of the rest of your adverb-reliant classmates?
US Government denies existance of Mermaids>>>>http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-18692830US Government denies existance of Mermaids3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Really? I mean; really?
The US National Ocean Service had to make a statement that Mermaids do not in fact exist, after they were bombarded by enquiries regarding them in the wake of a programme aired by the Discovery Channel.
"Mermaids: The Body Found" was a work of fiction but was mistaken by a number of people to be a documentary.
I'm guessing they're the same people for whom warnings are printed on Harry Potter broomsticks, reading "Caution: Does not actually fly".......
Tutorial: Cosplay Boy Make-up ISo, this is the first part of the "Cosplay boy make-up" tutorial. It has way too much text and pictures to put it into just one journal, so I will divide it.Tutorial: Cosplay Boy Make-up I2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As always~ English is not my native language so you might come across mistakes. My apologies! If anything is unclear feel free to ask me in the comments.
I'm just showing you what works for me and what's my personal liking. I'm focusing on eye make-up and additional tips. If you think this way of doing a boys cosplay make-up is is using way too much make-up that's totally fine. Everyone has his/her own preferences and this tutorial is just a hint who it can be done.
The shape of eyes differ a lot from one to another, so if you want to try it the way I do my make-up you might have to adjust it to your own eyes. Maybe you have already run into this problem before while seeing a well done eye make-up in a tutorial or worn by an asian cosplayer. Furthermore be aware of the fact that the shape of your eyebrows, wearing c
Commission Info (Points/Cash): CLOSED Clarifying this since many people seem to don't get it: if you want me to draw any kind of artwork for you, but you tell me "draw me a neko maid" or "draw my oc with a mage outfit" or anything like that I WILL CHARGE YOU EXTRACommission Info (Points/Cash): CLOSED3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That is because I'm not only working to do the artwork for you, but also a custom design!
So anything you want me to draw that doesn't have a VISUAL reference will cost you more! Please remember that! ;A;
Stuff like "draw my oc with this outfit *link* " is perfectly fine of course! As long as you give me an exact reference of what you want you won't be charged anything more!
Added a point payment option too! Remember, 1 EUR = 120
Also, added 25% discounts for commissions that include OCs you've adopted from me, or my own OCs (like a commission requesting your character hanging out with my character)

We want to ensure we are giving the community something worthwhile here- and please don't forget to add opportunities you find to the list too- the more people adding things, the better!
As writers, we always talk about “getting that piece published sometime” or “maybe submitting to a few places”, but how many of us actually eat our words and get on with it?
It was suggested that perhaps we could help nudge you guys by sharing with you the opportunities we know of. Personally, I'm not well explored, but what I do know is that the community is! Therefore this journal is a chance to share the opportunities you find.

Howl’s Moving Castle 1
Howl’s Moving Castle is best known as the 2004 animated fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
While it is as beautifully animated as all of Studio Ghibli's other films this was one of the few times Miyazaki based a film on an existing work. The film is an adaptation of British author Diana Wynne Jones’ 1986 young-adult novel by the same name and the first book in the Ho

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all

Cosplay sitesHi guys and gals,Cosplay sites3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's high time for another helpful (hopefully) post. We have been lacking with those since we're all super busy (december is a pain) but with a bit of clever planning I finally managed to make a new post.
So in this post we will be giving you some links to sites that are majorly helpful for cosplayers. As a cosplayer you do need quite a bit of stuff and it's not always easy to find. You need the right wig or you want to buy your costume since your skills with a sewing machine aren't good enough yet (practice makes perfect) but where to buy it?
Some of these links are used quite often and others may not be. All in all we hope this post might be somewhat useful to you and especially to those just starting out ^_^
So we have the general sites, these sites sell wigs, costumes and props. Sites for binding shirts and last but not least sites for contact lenses.
Now keep in mind that these sites are not THE sites to use but they are the sites that some of us use frequently.

08/05/14 - Added PacP's video translated by ryukendo123
Please note that this tutorial is made by audiencefromspace as of 12/29/12 specifically designed for the 3D animation program MikuMikuDance and not any other animation programs. MikuMikuMoving has similarities with MMD but due to some changes with that it would be better to assume that this won't work with it. I made this with very limited knowledge I accumulated from my experience and other tutorials as well as NO PROPER SCHOOLING (Yes you can do it without going to any animation schools). I tested these theories myself over and over to ensure credibility. This will also assume that you at least know the basic functions of MMD, otherwise go watch the video in VPVP site again.
Terminologies marked with ASTERISKS are terms I just made-up to make them easy to remember
