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. (sorry I take so long but this is the only way I keep my sanity while still producing a comic and living a life at the same time)
A few of you may know that I entered the game knowing NOTHING about the new pokemon and seem eager to hear my reactions to some of them so here are a few.

Journal again!Because I am a boring person, here's my process of getting a random picture done!Journal again!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Starting up your picture!
- Go do a bunch of sketches! Anything that pops into mind. Me? F.O.E. And Digimanz D:
- This step is important to finding all them silly mistakes, and some subtle ones too!
- And as always, keep the drafting lines simple, and messy if you are a hardcore pencil fan (I am). Keeping it simple makes colouring easier by heaps.
2. Block the flat colours!
- Pretty self explanatory.
- But do take note of the edits on the sketch you did! I kinda didn't show it Terriermon's wink is not present until later.
3. Snazzy shading!
- Time to put your shading to the test! The general rule? Warm for light, cold for dark. Can be applied to any drawing and real life : P
- Don't shade areas that you won't

F**k-ugly watermarks.I follow a lot of insanely talented artists here on DA, people whose work I look at in sheer awe and whose skill I can only dream of one day matching.F**k-ugly watermarks.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.

I hate the sonic fandom. Everybody's characters are pretty much the same. About 99.9% of them are chicks with extremely showy/bright/glowing clothes, and the rest are pretty much recolors that most of the time have the same backstory as Shadow or another really popular character. Most of them also have the power of fire/ice, or some other element that ton of other people already use. I admit there are a couple of really good well thought out sonic fc's, but they don't even get that popular because they don't fit in with the other "popular" characters.I hate the sonic fandom.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It seems like people only watch me for my sonic art. Cause whenever I draw ANYTHING that's not sonic related (usually stuff that I work the hardest on/love the most) people completely ignore it. It's like I'm not allowed to draw the shit that I DO want to draw, which pisses me off because sonic art isn't going to get me anything that I want in life. Having a crapload of sonic watchers doesn't get you a job. . . it gets you watchers. An

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.

Eras of Animation - The 2000's (Part 1)Since I'm going to do a list of the top 10 worst cartoons of this particular decade (2000-2009) I thought that it might be fun to do a little bit of a retrospective on the era. And maybe I'll do a little bit more on other decades. Now I said that this was one of the worst decades (not THE worst, that's generally agreed on to be the 70's), but this is a particularly bad decade. I will say that this decade had some really, really good gems. That's because the early 2000's were more a less a continuation of the 90's. When I talk about this decade I tend to refer more to the mid-2000's, which not even the early 2000's can really save. It's not even the shows that's most of the problems, it's the trends that started here, and we'll talk about them soon. So, let's take this year by year, and we'll talk about the events as they transpire. Also, to keep this simple, we're going to be largely talking about American animation history.

Pokemon X and Y - The shiny fishing methodHey guys!Pokemon X and Y - The shiny fishing method2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, some of you may be wondering why if all sudden everyone is finding shiny fish pokemon but don't tell you how. Well, here you go.
Recently a new way of finding shinies easily and fast was discovered. To be said right from the start, this only works with Pokémon that you can fish for in X and Y.
The method started to circulate yesterday due to the NPC that hands you the Super Rod saying:
"This is just a rumor, but word is that you can catch some rare Pokemon through consecutive fishing!"
It is very likely the rare Pokémon he is talking about are in fact shiny Pokémon. The method below has been discovered and tested by many. I myself have tried it and obtained shiny Relicanth, Dragalge and Poliwhirl with it, two of my friends got shiny Seadras and my boyfriend got shiny Clauncher.
What to do:
- Find a Pokémon with Suction Cups or Sticky Hold for their ability. In gen 6, Octillery and Inkay are easily obtainable Pokémon that can have Suction Cups. Gulpin and Tru

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,
