SUPER IMPORTANT PERCY JACKSON NEWS!!!HOLY MOTHER OF GODS UNCLE RICK ANNOUNCED THAT HE IS WRITING A NEW PERCY JACKSON SERIES!!!! OMG I THINK I JUST DIED :iconicantplz:SUPER IMPORTANT PERCY JACKSON NEWS!!!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
An excerpt: And I will announce this here for the first time, right now I'm working on a new book of the Greek myths, told from Percy Jackson's point of view. My hope is to offer the original stories, but told in a modern perspective that appeals to our kids today. I decided to set aside the earlier anthologies, as much as I love them – Hamilton, D'Aulaires, Evslin, Greene – because the writing is a little dated. Instead, I've leapfrogged straight back to the primary sources. I'm using Ovid, Hesiod, Homer and many others, and trying to cast the entire scope of Greek mythology afresh. John Rocco, who does my covers, is illustrating, and we're hoping to create something that's going to be useful in your libraries and classrooms.
Anyway, one of my goals is
House of Hades News!!!Holy mother of gods I just found the summary for HoH and I'm crying so hard i need this bookHouse of Hades News!!!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?
They have no choice. If the demigods don't succeed, Gaea's armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.
Sailor Moon Crystal and Why it isn't BetterYou heard me. It isn't better than the 90s anime.Sailor Moon Crystal and Why it isn't Better2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now put your panties back on people.
I said it isn't "better" ... I did not say it is "bad" or not "good" ... I am honestly very excited and loved seeing the leaked footage. I think, besides the original anime and my current favorite version of Sailor Moon, the live action PGSM, that this may be one of the best renditions of Sailor Moon to date! I am ridiculously in love with the new animation and style they are using. It is far more modern using modern techniques and staying very true to the original manga styles of the characters that Naoko created. It is literally a Sailor Moon made for the modern day and age and will bring a whole new generation of people together as fans of Sailor Moon! Stop hating because it looks different than the 90s anime!!
You simply cannot compare the 90s anime to Crystal.
You just can't so stop. Just stop. I keep seeing people rant about how
Five Things To Avoid With Female CharactersBecoming more and more absorbed in Lore, I've begun to take stock of certain elements of story telling that I want to avoid when making my stories, because I don't want to fall under many of the same traps that other stories. The most notable is some of the often used tropes we often see in certain series involving women figures, especially given how many I tend to have. This is a list of 5 things I feel are good to avoid where you can of doing to your female character:Five Things To Avoid With Female Characters3 months ago in Personal More Like This
~ Give Them Real Armor if They Do Wear Armor ~
This one is a more recent topic after discussion involving Captain Phasma on the Star Wars facebook page. Breast-shaped armor helps to show, yes, this woman is a woman, but it's also not practical, given the whole point of breast PLATE armor is to protect the body and breast-shaped armor can cause the weapon or strike to cause series damage if it goes into that point.
Suggestion - Use it sparingly if you must. Breasts aren't the one thing that matters about the body
Crying In PublicOkay, so I'm a firm believer in not showing people your weak side, in public. I was raised to always smile and cry in the shower with the water running. So... when my macbook pro malfunctioned for the first time in two years yesterday, I had no idea what to do. Mind you, I hadn't backed up my stuff in like months so I had tons of commissions, academic papers, and just my entire life on my computer. It kept showing the grey and blue screens, and after 4 hours at my university's IT center and them not being able to fix it, I wanted to break down. So the guy apologizes for not being able to fix it and tells me to call apple and tell them I need a new Motherboard because I apparently fried this one. For those who are computer savvy, you know that if you need a new motherboard, you might as well get a new computer.Crying In Public2 years ago in Personal More Like This

You can't say you can't!As a child I was a bright student, always used to grab among the first 3 positions in my class, teachers used to love me (I was never a teacher's pet though) and my mom and dad (specially dad) supported me with his heart and soul. We always have guidance/influence from others in some way or the other. I was fortunate enough to get them I guess. But there comes a time in your life where you need to move alone and build your own responsibilities, you need to make your own ways, you need make your own decisions and you need to choose the right path.You can't say you can't!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The world is cruel enough to pull you down every time you want to climb up. But you can't stop there. You have to move on. You can't say you can't!
I have seen a lot of phases in my life in the last 25 years. In deviantART everyone says they like the way I talk to people, the way I treat them and the way I guide them. May be I shouldn't use the word "everyone", perhaps it should be at least most of them says so.
I get a lot of people coming to
WTF Plot?!*Warning: language and maybe spoilers*WTF Plot?!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It may be me, but I'm finding that I am increasingly leaving movies or television shows with a sense of emptiness of just plain let down. Shows like "Girls" do nothing but try to tell me I should feel something, but seem incapable of doing so, all the while making me want to throw up at it's "realistic" portrayal of the world and it's bratty and ridiculous characters. (Also, the fact that it is set in one of the boroughs of New York, and there has been 1 black character, 1 Asian character, and NO hispanic characters is laughable.) Movies like "The Wolf of Wall Street" just makes me hate America and those who are able to take advantage of its Capitalism. (Way to finally star in a role where I hated your fucking guts, Leonardo. Didn't even hate him this much in D'jango.) Lastly, movies like "Wolf Children" just make me lose hope in the ideals of family and unselfishness that I hold so near and dear to my heart.

Thoughts on traced/copied artI can't really pinpoint an exact opinion about this subject because I'm still confused about it myself. But I do know that people have been debating about this topic for a long time, whether traced/copied art can be considered as art theft or not.Thoughts on traced/copied art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had a couple of experiences myself with copied or repainted art here on DA. The first one was when some deviant took my Zuko drawing, and slapped on the text "GLEE" because he/she said his pose looks amusing, with his palm upfront and making an "L" shape, then he/she reposted it on his/her account. I was quite offended, because he/she didn't even ask permission, and was making fun of my drawing because of the weird pose. The second was when another deviant took my Percabeth painting, and repainted it sloppily on paint. A couple of my watchers notified me and DA or her took down the drawing not long after.
It's a different case if someone referenced off my art, or even traced it if it's only intended for practice, I'm fine with that. I also
Discrimination TodayIt's days like today that make me question about everything that I was taught by my parents.Discrimination Today6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Loyalty, humility, brotherhood, honesty, friendship and love.
I've been watching clips from a show called What Would You Do?, and after seeing the clips of discrimination, racism and bigotry, I've grown to be disgusted with what people are doing onto others today.
Centuries ago, the only thing people had a dislike for others is the color of thier skin and nationality, but now that's grown into something even more horrible and terrifying.
The Mexicans, all thier doing is trying to do the same thing everybody else from around the world are doing: Coming to America and trying to live a new life there. But now SOME people, who're ignorant people, aren't even allowing them to come in and get a job to pay for the right to live in America. Why? I ask you!
All they ever get is disrespect and hatred, threatened to be shipped to jail or sent back to Mexico.
People forget that long, long ago, the Mexicans
