Guide to Writing RomanceEmpressTuiLa's Guide to Writing Romance StoriesGuide to Writing Romance4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Welcome, welcome! I recently got a request to create a guide to writing romance stories which, I would like to say is my specialty but alas I don't want to sound conceited, so I will say it is definitely my favorite genre to write! I'm no expert and this is not the definitive way to write romances, but hopefully this will give you a good idea on where to start and what to do.
Also, please do comment about what I have written and what else you would like to see! Sometimes I want to put something in but forget, or you'll have an idea that I didn't even think of and would love to put in the guide!
I would consider this the most common romance out there, two friends falling in love which is uberly cute in my opinion.
In my opinion, some of the best ways to approach this is to establish the friendship these two have, either starting the story with the two characters as friends already or have them become frien

Celmation TechniquesCELMATION TECHNIQUESCelmation Techniques8 months ago in Historical More Like This
by JIMMY GIBSON
The cel is an important innovation to traditional animation, as it allows some parts of each frame to be repeated from frame to frame, thus saving labor. A simple example would be a scene with two characters on screen, one of which is talking and the other standing silently. Since the latter character is not moving, it can be displayed in this scene using only one drawing, on one cel, while multiple drawings on multiple cels are used to animate the speaking character.
For a more complex example, consider a sequence in which a boy sets a plate upon a table. The table stays still for the entire sequence, so it can be drawn as part of the background. The plate can be drawn along with the character as the character places it on the table. However, after the plate is on the table, the plate no longer moves, although the boy continues to move as he draws his arm away from the plate. In this example, after the boy puts the plate down, the plate can th

6 Ways to Add Mystery to your Story6 Ways to Add Genuine Mystery to your Story – With Reference Material for the Rules of Mystery6 Ways to Add Mystery to your Story9 months ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
One of the most common and most annoying things that I come across, when editing manuscripts, is when there is a vague mention of the protagonist's back-story or mission. I ask the writer why they don't clarify, and they tell me that they wanted to leave a mystery for the audience. This is not mystery, that is leaving the audience in the dark. Today, I want to talk about the difference between this cheap ploy, and creating genuine mystery in your story. But before we begin, let me share the first rule of creating mystery:
The first rule of mystery is that your audience should be able to see everything and have access to ALL of the same information as your POV (point-of-view) character. (AKA the Scooby-Doo Principal)
Method 1: Show mystery by revealing everything, not by concealing it.
The first way that mystery is created is by allowing the POV character to see something that does not f
Loftwing colors and ranksLoftwing colors and ranks2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
LIGHTWEIGHT colors are the fastest and most common. Because of the high agility of these loftwings, their riders often take messenger, medic, or rescuer roles. In battle they can dart and weave around the enemy with more success than midweight and heavyweight colors. They are built to reach the destination and reach it quickly, so their endurance isn't as good.
MIDWEIGHT colors have an equal balance between strength and speed. They are less common than lightweights, yet more common than heavyweights. Their riders usually serve as both scouts and front line fighters. Sometimes a midweight rider will decide on one side of the spectrum and only do speed flying or only do endurance training, but most of the time, midweight riders are there for whatever they're most needed for.
HEAVYWEIGHT colors are the most uncommon. They are like feathered tanks, their strength and endurance is very good, but they aren't as agile. Once they reach top speed, it's hard for them to change direction quickly.

Writing Tips: Ideas/Ideas To PlotTo a professional writer, artist, painter, programmer, whatever, what is the value of a good idea? And for simplicity's sake, let's give it a monetary value. How much money would you pay for one good idea? How much money should you pay for one good idea? The answer? Nothing. An idea on its own is worthless. I could give you one-hundred ideas for a dollar and you're still being ripped off. And yes, immediately I'll say that's why no one who is working on a game or movie or whatever needs a dedicated "idea guy." If you're looking to be that person, I have an idea myself: get a skill that can actually contribute bringing that idea to life.Writing Tips: Ideas/Ideas To Plot6 months ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Why is that? Well... for starters, ideas are the byproduct of functions you do every day. Paying for an idea is like paying for someone else's carbon dioxide. Also, to top that off, any idea that anyone else comes up with is free for you to use. You don't need to worry about even the strictest copyright system in the world, because no one would p

Please stop playing the victim.
Boys are not always the cause of your problems, chances are, you are. You just refuse to acknowledge it.
The more you blame them, the more bitter and spiteful you will become. Stop destroying yourself from the inside because you cannot take responsibility for the mess you've created.
Stop playing the victim. Get up and do something about it. Crying won't help, nor will hating the opposite sex.
If you're tired of being called a slut because you love breaking hearts, than stop sleeping around. If you're tired of being called a bitch, than stop treating boys like shit. If you're tired of being treated as an object, gain some self-esteem. If you're tired of starving yourself because of a break up, that's your problem. We told you to eat, but you won't listen. You only blame it one him, but who destroyed the relationship in the first place?

Edit: This tutorial covers aspects related only to your Deviantart gallery and Deviantart Journal. It has nothing to do with the Deviantart's newly implemented points commission system. You can take commissions without using that points system on Deviantart as long as you have paypal.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO START
When you have enough watchers and people interested in your art.
When you have a closely-bounded community around your work/gallery
How many is enough I can't say for sure, because it depends on the community around you and your work. Some artists can live on one patron, others need to live on millions of them.
For DA, I would say typically around 20,000-40,000 pageviews, at least 40-50 watchers on your DA is best before you start considering taking commissions, (because out of that 40-50, you may have 1 person willing to pay, a safer bet is 100 people.) however, if your gallery has explosiv

About creating a ComicMany People that ever started a Comic know how often Comics won´t continued.About creating a Comic4 months ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Sometimes People ask me how I made it up to almost 300 Pages (and way more planed).
It actually is easy. Even if your Comic is not as much loved as you love it, you should not care because it is YOUR Project. You don´t get paid for it. You just need to enjoy it.
(Maybe You: "but I want to sell my Comic!" Me:...I only saw like three really good Artists, that do Works worth buying. So I can only tell you from my Heart and Soul, that it is more important that YOU like your Stuff than what others think of it.)
I work on Katinka since I was 11. The first 5 Years were just drawings, dreamings and making Ideas. I started writing like 3 times back then but never liked it.
The first Pages (till somewhen on Cybaxie) where done without a Story I could look at. Every Page was done without having a Plan at first.
How ever you are doing your Comic. Spontaneous or with well planed Story, it doesn´t matter. If
