I'm getting the nuzlocke bug again (the nagging guilt that actually motivates me to draw it) so hopefully you can anticipate a few pages soon. It comes in spurts you see.

Why Scyther can't learn Fly (theory)Many Pokemon fans have wondered this, and I'm surprised that I've never seen an explanation for it until now.Why Scyther can't learn Fly (theory)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Scyther itself can fly, and it can even carry people for a short amount of time, shown here:
however, it is not strong enough to carry people for long distances or at high altitudes for a long period of time. As for why it can't use it in battle as well, is that for a successful Fly attack, one must be able to quickly reach high altitudes and strike down even faster to hit an unsuspecting target. Being a bug type, Scyther isn't good at reaching such an attitude more fit for Pokemon used to high altitudes, such as bird-like Pokemon.

(...) Everyone has a moment when they think “I am a bad artist.” and they think that because they see a level of skill they have not achieved yet. If this is the case, every artist ever is a bad artist, because every artist ever has had some idea, some plan, some goal of a skill level or creation that they have not achieved yet. And that’s good. Learning and growth and moving forward are all good things, so instead of trying to be some fictionalized version of a good artist, let’s all be bad artists together.

Printed NuzRooke and friend code!So, everyone, I have a bit of news!Printed NuzRooke and friend code!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
NuzRooke has been printed! Has been for a while now, actually, but now it's also for sale. XD Each book is $8, USD, except book 1 which is $6, and there are 7 books in all. They include the story pages of NuzRooke (not the Q&A, and not all of the extras) so pretty much pages 1 - 88. They are also in grayscale, because printing them in color is kah-RAZY expensive. XD
So, pretty much, if you want a printed copy of NuzRooke to have on your bookshelf, now you can get it!
I'm also going to try and put together a compiled anthology version of NuzRooke, with the entire comic, extra pages, selected fanart and extra artwork of mine, before I go on my mission, but that may or may not happen. XD At the very least I'd like to put together a short collection of my favorite fanart and some extra artwork as well...possibly the old sketches for when I was designing NuzRooke too...the Art of NuzRooke...heh.
Anyway, here are the links to where you can buy t

L Lawliet X Reader 'A cold night' (One-shot) I’ve been with the task force for a few months now. What I hate the most is sharing a room with “Misa-Misa”; she can be really aggravating sometimes. However, It’s nice to work with everyone else here. Actually… Maybe not Light as much… after all he is a suspect for being the so-called Kira. I think there is a strong possibility of it. Light is always distant from the rest of us in a way. Speaking of the task force, L is so dreamy…. He may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but he’s mine.

Overcoming Creative BlockI think every artist has creative block from time to time. A friend of mine did recently, so I typed up my own remedy for it. And I liked how it turned out, so I think I'll post it here too. This is my advice on how to get past creative block - whether it's art block, writer's block, etc.Overcoming Creative Block1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Here's what you do -
Go find a book or comic book you haven't read. Read it. If you haven't read the Bone series by Jeff Smith, or the Bakuman series (it's a manga), then go find those, and read them. Read the Inkheart trilogy. Read Elantris by Brandon Sanderson. Read Endymion Spring. Find a story and lose yourself in it.
Watch animated videos and movies you haven't seen. Here's a playlist of animated videos I liked. Pick a few and watch them, and really think about the artwork being created there. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?listLkDDYT9uliZfNKCIelqyVcQO_p_e0O7Jn&feature=mh_lolz

Whatever Happened to SpongebobNo I'm not talking about that episode; I'm talking about the show. I'm genuinely curious as to what happened to the Nicktoon Spongebob Squarepants over the past ten years. It went from a charming and funny show to one of the most mean-spirited, disgusting, and perverse shows that currently exists. Rebeltaxi99, a popular cartoon reviewer always says that people are complaining that the new episodes aren't as good. That's not true. The episodes are HORRIBLE. They have ranged from annoying to vile to cruel. A drop in quality would mean that we've gone from shining stars to plain mediocrity. Instead we've gone from episodes about selling chocolate bars door-to-door to episodes featuring a grotesque infected splinter and episodes making fun of suicide. I need to know how this happened, how it was allowed to happen, and more importantly--could this happen again?Whatever Happened to Spongebob1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Top 11 Worst Family Guy Episodes*That I've seenTop 11 Worst Family Guy Episodes9 months ago in Personal More Like This
So with the ratings trap of Life of Brian I've decided to not only stop reviewing Family Guy episodes, but just being done with Seth MacFarlane's projects altogether. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that he wanted me to keep pelting his show. Because... he made a worse episode. Or someone did, I don't care. So, I'll get back to reviewing Family Guy's atrocities because... my god. I can't just let another SpongeBob run loose. Actually, modern Family Guy is worse than modern SpongeBob. So, here are my top 11 worst Family Guy episodes.
Number 11: Road to the Multiverse
I understand that a lot of people like this episode, and to be fair, it doesn't have a really good concept. It has a fucking amazing concept. What's the problem? No. Research. Done. First alternate universe is extremely advanced because Christianity never happened, despite much of science surviving thanks to Christian monks. And that the Catholic church has always been supporti

Was it really that simple?Why doesn't Ash age?Was it really that simple?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's the question every Pokemon fan asks, and lots are sick of, but I think I've finally got a valid answer that doesn't sound like something out of a poorly written fantasy book.
Throughout the generations, Ash's physical appearance has seemed to mature over time, and though unintentional, is also valid evidence for this theory: the Pokemon world simply has longer years. While many places in Pokemon are based of real places, it's still not exactly a parallel universe to ours. The Pokemon world probably orbits around a much larger star than our sun, therefore, taking a longer path to complete a year opposed to our approximate 365 days. In our world, Ash probably would be 16 or so, but in his world, he's still ten.
Red vs. AshSo I recently saw this:Red vs. Ash1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And accompanied with it were a bunch of complaints and arguments on who was better than who. I personally believe that you can't compare Red and Ash fairly because they live in entirely different canons. But from their standpoints, this is how it is:
(Pokemon Origins) Red:
Caught the original 150 including legendaries
Disbanded Team Rocket
Became champion of the Kanto League
Caught 41 Pokemon, but has 63 registered in the Pokedex as owned
Has not caught a legendary, but has met all legendaries (excluding X and Y legendaries as of currently) however not counting specials, has only seen roughly 4 legendaries (I may be wrong)
Has not disbanded Team Rocket, but has stopped some of their plans, disbanded team Aqua, Magma, Galactic, and Plasma (as of currently) (and several movie villains)
Has not become a champion
In Red's world, catching legendaries is possible and not seen as immoral
In Ash's world, catching legend

The Art of Pricing commissionsThere are many reasons to create art. But for the sake of this article, regarding commissions, I will focus on the motive of making money. I like to make money. But I am not an artist by profession and money is not the driving force behind my art (or my life). That said, pricing commissions varies tremendously from one artist to another. These are by no means guidelines, just things to consider.The Art of Pricing commissions4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. What are you offering (in terms of artistic mediums)?
If you're shipping out the original of something it should be more expensive than a digital version of the same thing.
Things on canvas, sculpture, jewelry etc. are more '3 dimensional' and the materials often cost more than a digital painting or sketch. I see a greater trend towards digital works, like character sheets, sketches, stamps, avatars etc. These things are cheaper because there is a high demand for something so small, personal and relatively easy to create. The ease of creating artwork via technology is incredible,
