Anatomy of typographyTYPOGRAPHY SERIES:Anatomy of typography2 years ago in Personal More Like This
01 – Anatomy of typography
02 – Ligatures
03 – Numeral sets
There have been many images going around the Internet explaining the basic elements of typography but most of these sources are incredibly basic and incomplete. That's why I decided to come up with my own version and be as complete as possible.
I excluded several things like diacritics, the different ligature types, numeral sets etc. to avoid making it look too chaotic but most of the basic elements seem to be there. I will focus on diacritics, ligatures and numeral sets later in this ongoing typography series.

10 Second Tip - Making TitlesDo you have a tutorial on how to decide the title for your story?10 Second Tip - Making Titles2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I can't decide on a title, I fall back on how the professionals do it.
> No more than Three words, preferably Two. One word is considered ideal for a title.
> You can have Four if the word is 'And,' 'The,' 'A,' or something similar.
> One word for the Genre.
> Any other words should stand for:
-- the Emotion the story is trying to invoke
-- a Character
-- an Action
-- a Location
Star Trek (genre + emotion)
Grimm (Genre & Emotion in one word.)
Once Upon a Time (Genre)
The Addams Family (Name = Genre + Emotion)
-- 'Addams' IS a genre because the name has been recognized and associated with "spooky" since the 1930s when the comic first appeared in 'New Yorker Magazine.'
Deep Space 9 (Genre & Location)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Character + Genre + Action)
House (name = Genre)
Wizard of Oz (Genr

So to celebrate hitting 2,000 watchers, and my birthday, I'm going to hold two contests. One will be a writing prompt, and the other will be a visual contest
I'm still digging up ideas for the visual contest, but in the meanwhile, lets start the writing prompt
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
In the comments below, answer the following prompt:
What does art mean to you? How has your art helped you in life?
I realize this is very broad, but I think that will make for interesting answers Be sure to be as detailed as possible, and include anything and everything that comes to mind. If you want to add in what sort of art you do, that would be awesome!
Be sure to answer the prompt in at least 3-4 sentences. Of course, you may write more if you se

Alriiiiiight so I see a heck ton of people walking around offering a LOT of money for these 'species' things. I don't.... I don't understand. There are people ready to pay 20 dollars for a dog made out of water? First of all- No, I'm sorry. That is not original. That is a dog made out of water. That's... That's not original. I drew a dog made out of water when I was seven. My friend named him Bubbles. You cannot claim that that is a closed species, when all you are doing is drawing dogs made out of water.
I can make humans made out of water. Does that mean its a closed species? No!
I get it, sometimes the bears with butts made out of sweets looks cool. Dannng those people can draw good. And hey, sometimes the dogs with bandannas have interesting back stories. But... But... When you are offering all but your soul for this things, its time to wonder if its worth i

Now to the judging, i will post the results as soon as i have them hopefully by early next weekMyths and legends Contest Closed6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Who hasn't heard of myths or legend of the past ? who hasn't wondered if they were real or just a story to put kids to sleep ? Who hasn't had an interest as slight as it may have been in those stories that populated ancient civilizations and are still alive today ?
In the past years people have started asking themselves questions at the light of new discoveries and the gaps in the classical history taught to us. To many questions stay unanswered and we are left to choose between believing or laughing at those records from an ancient time.
For my second contest i chose to go for this theme as i find it
