Magic is realYou are a wizard when your pencil touches the paperMagic is real3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The pencil is your wand, rising fire and vapor
turning the paper into a brand new world
as the paper drives you through a divine door
that takes us to the world of fantasy and dreams
where the elves dance and the siren sings
You are a witch when you start to draw
You are making spells in every trace and claw
the paper changes... You become the deity of the realm
You become the sorcerer of the fantasy and dream
Art is Magic, Art is Life, When you draw you are a mage!!
The Universe explodes with joy when you complete a new page
The dragon that you drew worships you, as a life-giving Sorceress,
The fairy that you made prays to you, calling you Mother Goddess,
calling you sacred Creator, when you draw, you are a God
when you draw you you create a new Earth and a new Sun
of the Realm that you design
that world that will forever live
as long we have a heart
Choose your RivalHi there Ryceballs it is I Ry-Spirit of the East. Here to talk about something that I have never mentioned much before.. And that is the topic of 'Rivals'.Choose your Rival2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ash had Gary Oak, Goku had Vegeta, Naruto had Sasuke. Do you believe that having a rival can help you improve in whatever you do? I do. I remember back in High School I got lots of praises from my classmates for being the greatest at drawing, I liked to draw in my diaries and homeworks alot Which explains why my marks were soooo FREAKIN TERRIBLE!. And there was a friend (I used the term very loosely) who would always try to find ways to make people feel like crap, this time it was no exception, he figured out what I liked and stabbed that piece of pure innocent heart with a sharp poisonous knife, he told me my drawings is poo compared to this other guy our year, I have never seen that guy's artworks before so my friend went as far as to sneak into the library storage room where everyone left their bags at, opened up the guy's bag an
Top 10 favorite animated ladies - 4!4)Disney girls!: Meg, Jane, Charlotte, and Belle!Top 10 favorite animated ladies - 4!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Alright so despite the fact that I've bashed Disney constantly, I actually really love this company. Its the fact that I have such a passionate love for it is the reason why I'm so hard on it. They have the power of forming timeless childhood memories, and for the most part they gave us wonderful stories and morals. This is the company that made me want to be an animator, so I really couldn't choose ONE female character.
While I like many of their leading ladies, a lot of them are pretty repetitive in terms of their ambitions and personalities. Also, keep in mind that these are NOT the 'best female characters' Disney has to offer, just four of my favorites. In reality though, Megara is my absolute favorite while the other three are runner ups. However, I feel like I've constantly talked about Meg in previous art work so I want to talk about my other favorites to offer something new in this entry.
Yes I am aware I've left out kick

RePost My Old Comics: Advice?In With The OldRePost My Old Comics: Advice?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was browsing through my archives of old comics that I’ve made and a realization occurred to me. Some of the comics in there have never seen the light of day, or were never posted online and only available for print. Of these comics there is a series of unintentionally hilarious melodramatic short stories, a zany series about a video retail worker trying to prevent theft, the original black and white Alex Ze Pirate stories that eventually led to the webcomic reboot, and Formera.
I’ve been thinking about posting these on my various websites, and even including the Black and White Alex Ze Pirate stuff as part of the main canon of the series. As for Formera: I own the rights to it and can pretty much do whatever I want with it. I’ve been debating posting it online for quite some time, especially since Book 2 was made in color, but only ever printed in black and white.
The only reason I’m a little hesitant is because this stuff wo
Top 10 favorite animated ladies - 5!Starfire (koriand'r) From Teen Titans voiced by Hynden WalchTop 10 favorite animated ladies - 5!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There is nothing you could've done. There will always be people who say mean words because you are different. And sometimes their minds cannot be changed. But there are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. Those are the people whose words truly matter.
Keep in mind that I'm analyzing the Starfire from the 'Teen Titans' show, NOT the comic. I have no idea how comic!Starfire is.
Teen Titans was an extremely fun and quirky show. It had a great cast, an amazing villain and it took its audience seriously (while not shying away from funny moments). I really love all of the titans and I believe they all represent some kind of teenager. However, my favorite titan of all is the titan I related to the most which is the alien princess Starfire. At the first glance, Starfire was in danger of becoming many annoying tropes; a) The forced love interest, b) The ditzy girly girl
Top 10 favorite animated ladies - 10!Because you guys asked for it, here it is! My Top favorite animated female characters!. Keep in mind that these are my favorite characters not the best female characters in animation. Therefore this will be a personal list that has characters that I either admire or relate to. This is also an ANIMATION list so these are ladies from animated shows/movies only. I will also try to choose one female character per studio/show although there will be instances that there will be a tie. On the last post I will explain my personal views of feminity and what I personally think about how to make a well rounded female character. For now, enjoy the list! ^^ (keep in mind that I will still be updating 'The Disney Vault').Top 10 favorite animated ladies - 10!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I gotta call the firemen! It is a wildfire!!
You get where the fire is... it is not a normal fire... it is dark... reddish, and seem to be filled with strange eyes of flame and the long flames look like snakes and dancing witches... it seems to be coming from a hole in the ground... suddenly the smoke starts to cover you!!
It is fine, it is simply smoke
I step back, away from the smoke, I keep looking at the strange flames

How can a cartoonist keep motivated and inspired?A friend asked me: “How do you motivate yourself to keep drawing? Lately I have been lacking that. One of the reasons is that I feel afraid of making mistakes in my drawings not to mention that I sometimes feel inferior when I compare my drawings to other artists (particularly those who make illustrations and cartoons)”How can a cartoonist keep motivated and inspired?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
One thing that keeps me drawing is having to. If I don’t have an FRS done every week, the readers get ornery, and so I have something I need to get done every week, whether I like what I’ve made or not.
But sometimes I feel uninspired or just plain don’t like what I’m turning out. This happened just a week ago. There’s a few things I like to do in this instance.
-Sometimes I just find some drawings I really like and try to quickly draw their construction. No details, just the construction. This is an especially good technique if there are particular artists you want more influence from:
Rant: Shippings/Pairings..yeah I don't do a lot of that.. here's why:Rant: Shippings/Pairings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Wars - people are so defensive of a certain shipping they like they think its just perfect while its not even canon. And these fans are so offended by anyone who says they don't like the pairing they love.
2. Rarely Canon - hardly any ships or pairings ever become canon so why should I bother indulging into some fantasy of my favorite pairing become canon. Because there's a huge chance that a lot of people that dont like the pairing will be angry if it becomes canon.
3. The Characters are Great how They are - seriously. I'm not hating on the characters or the writer or the shippers. I think we can get along fine. I just think that some characters are better off without a significant other. Even if some would be really awesome together. But that's not up to me to decide.
I recently put up my Fairy Tail shipping meme just to see if i can find anyone that has common interests with me in certain pairings we like. I'm not

Months ago, I made a Disney Princess rant and now I just want to say this; Disney Princesses, do you want me to keep ranting? Why do you do this to me, I respect a lot of aspects of your company but I cannot stand you.
Alright, let me clarify something; I do not dislike the Disney Princesses as characters in their films. I have no problems of people looking up to them or wanting to be like them according to their personalities in their respective movie. However, I despise the trope and this franchise aimed for little girls. Why? Because they strip away all their few unique characters traits and make them all identical. Basically what their product is sa
Nuzlocke Comics Romance -OCxCanon-Aaaand here is the 'sequel' of my previous post. I decided to talk about this topic since its something thats heavily debated within the fandom. I wanted to give my two cents about this, because when it comes to many Nuzlocke Comics this is seen a lot. My comic in particular has a lot of OCxCanon relationships and they can be fun...but I always feel nervous when I do it too. Fans feel strongly about romance and characters, and Oc's are difficult to pull off. If a romance or relationship between an OC and a Canon is not done well then fans will be upset. When I was fourteen for example I was a hormonal romance obsessed nut and paired all my female OCs (self insert Mary Sues *cough cough*) with every attractive male character. People ripped me a part and since that they I took what I learned and found the 'secret' of building a natural, fun and good romance. I want to share my knowledge with you, and remind you that its okay to do this as long as you are perfectly aware of all the factorNuzlocke Comics Romance -OCxCanon-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rest in Peace Robin WilliamsRest in peace Robin Williams. I grew up enjoying Robin's movies from my childhood favorites Aladdin, Fern Gully, Jumanji, Miss Doubtfire and many more. I'm very saddened how he passed away, and so early in his life. Depression is a horrible experience to live with. I know first hand whats it's like. When I first heard about it I didn't believe it, and thought it was a horrible joke someone pulled, but no it was real.Rest in Peace Robin Williams1 year ago in Personal More Like This

The Name Of NatureI'm feeling a bit Emo today after receiving news a couple months back that a dear childhood friend of mine committed suicide and then this morning that a more recent friend of mine passed away last night, before her due time, leaving behind four children. I posted this on my Facebook page, but I feel that DA is really a more fitting environment for such a rant. Agree, disagree or agree to disagree. This is just part of my particular view on the subject of life and love.The Name Of Nature2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes we under appreciate the people we once cared so deeply for. The people who once made us so euphorically happy with minimal effort, the ones who delivered you the most genuine smiles and sincerest adoration are not a guarantee. It's scarey how simple it is to take for granted the threaded of moments life. Before you know it, the fabric of love and life have run out. Once the spinning wheel abruptly stops, all the tears in the world can never give it precious momentum again nor can all the money or gold ever b
