OC Contest [AND IT BEGINS]WELCOME TO THE OC CONTEST!OC Contest [AND IT BEGINS]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey there! It’s time for the contest you OC creators have all been waiting for! It’s the OC Contest. In this contest, you have a chance of getting your character a role in ‘Elementary’! So if you want to know what ‘Elementary’ is all about, here is the information:
THE BASE PLOT
Lovino Vargas is a new student that is in his Senior Year at Hetalia High School, having spent previous years at different schools due to his family moving around lots. While other students are looking forward to bright futures and amazing new opportunities, Lovino is rather fed up with the world around him. He feels like he's seen it all and nothing is worth getting excited over anymore. The only person he really knows at this school is his annoying classmate Gilbert Beilschmidt, his annoying little brothers Feliciano and Serafino Vargas, and the rather mysterious Kiku Honda. As he spends more
SECRET VALENTINES EVENT 2014 (CLOSED)OKAY I HAVE NOTED EVERYONE WHICH PERSON THEY GOT. COMMENT OR NOTE ME IF I DIDN'T NOTE YOU YOUR PERSON. OTHERWISE, HAVE FUN DOING YOUR GIFT FOR YOUR PERSON <3 COMMENT HERE WITH THE LINK ONCE YOU HAVE FINISHED THE GIFT FOR YOUR PERSON!SECRET VALENTINES EVENT 2014 (CLOSED)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
because fuck yeah, that's always good fun!
This is an Hetalia only event, seeing as me and most of my watchers' main fandom is Hetalia. So please keep that in mind. Now, you have until the 25th of January to sign up for this event. From there you have until the end of February to get your gift done. If you can't make that deadline, I am going to be a very grumpy Mel and ban you from taking part in any more events that I host on this account. Got it?
Now for some rules!
It's a Secret Valentine, so that means you can't tell anyone who you are doing a gift for. The only ones that should know who you got are yourself and me. Only when you post the gift can you reveal who you are.
YOU MUST DO A GIFT IF YOU ARE PARTICIPAT
~The Secret Santa gift exchange~okay so after some hard decision and opinions of others--.~The Secret Santa gift exchange~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's time to host this! So I've decided to post this up early and begin to explain what a Secret Santa is to some of you that are new to it.
This will probably explain it more then I do.
So, with what I want to do is do this even with you guys! my reasons is that I always wanted to host one and well it seemed like a really fun idea!
But of course, we have a few rules that we should follow:
1: You can't tell the other people that your making the gift for and of who you are
it would ruin the whole point to it! it is called a 'Secret' Santa, right? so keep it a secret buut...I can ask the person what you want and I won't say your name. vuv
2: If your joining you have to make a gift
It wouldn't be fair if you didn't make a gift and someone else made you something. That isn't right, so please do make a gift for them.
3: Be a little creative
Why we shouldn't 'Self-Insert'.I'm sorry, but I've seen one too many self-insert Hetalia OCs.Why we shouldn't 'Self-Insert'.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, self-inserts do NOT automatically make an interesting and well researched Hetalia OC. Sorry to burst anyone's bubble. Especially if it doesn't even represent a country/city/village and is a citizen that just so happens to meet the personification of their country and is magically allowed to go to world meetings before getting into a relationship with their country.
No one likes these.
And in my honest opinion, it just makes you look silly.
If you're going to make an OC for Hetalia, don't base it off of yourself, and try to keep it to an actual personification of a city/village/country. Base it off of what that country would have.
For example, if I were to make a Pakistan, I wouldn't give her red hair, blue eyes, and dress her in shorts. If I were to make a Pakistan, I'd want to look up common looks and clothing from that country.
Now, with self-inserts, there comes the reader insert fanfiction we have floatin
I learn a lot from this fandom-I seriously did and it has change me for many things that I wouldn't expect at all. Some opinions of mine had change over the past year and heck my dislikes had come as well, like this one pairing actually made me go to almost changing my Greenland's gender to a male so that way I wouldn't be bug by shippings and that is IceGreen. Now, of course I may come off as a bitch in this but trust me...let's say that this pairing and I have history and it has change my views of this fandom, so please do respect my opinions here and I'll respect yours, thank you.I learn a lot from this fandom-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
anyway, let's begin.
okay, so when I first made a Greenland (keep in mind, for fun) and research which I made an RP account and of course everything was going smoothly so far until someone had ask me if I shipped IceGreen. Now I personally didn't really like the idea of them in a romantic sense since it seemed really out of character for both to have any romantic feelings for each other and of course I told them no I didn't in a more jo

I know many of my friends have OCs from the American countries so I thought I'd post the info about each:

let's defend OTPs and people-okay so my friend :iconNorie-tan: has this great OTP, which is Iceland/Faroe Islands and let me say that this pairing is amazing and you should support it. Great history, good relations, and both have Icelanders and Faroese on both there islands really does make sense so I support it.let's defend OTPs and people-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, there is something that she has been getting a bit of flank about her OTP and people are saying it's 'inaccurate' and 'incest'....is that it??? let's break down these points for a moment
okay, can you actually explain why this pairing is inaccurate? I don't see people complaining about IceSey or IceLiech which those 2 pairings are pretty cracky to say. Plus read this please: http://www.iceland.is/iceland-abroad/fo/english/bilateral-relations/ this actuallly talks about there relation and so pairing itself is accurate.
this one, wait how the hell is this pairing incest may I ask? like if your going as so far as saying this pairing is incest
Alright, I've had it.With DeviantART and with the Hetalia fandom.Alright, I've had it.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's this magical word.
LEARN IT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.
And I'll be damned if I lose a friend because someone doesn't like their ship or their ocs.
ENOUGH, FOR CHRIST'S SAKE.
Sure, this OC may be inaccurate. That person may be a complete weeaboo with the fandom. But it's not something we HARASS people about. I realize people aren't going to change in this fandom, things are going to just avalanche downhill, just like the Sonic fandom has. But PEOPLE.
GET. A. GRIP.
Too many people flame because they pair their OC with a canon character. Too many people hate because someone else has an OC of the same country. WHO FUCKING CARES.
THEY'RE GODDAMN. FICTIONAL. CHARACTERS.
From a goddamn anime no one but Himaruya owns.
People are allowed to express opinions, good or bad. But bitches, please, KEEP THE BASHING TO YOURSELF.
It is nothing. To flame over.
And it's especially nothing to have someone leave DeviantArt for

OpinionsOkay, a friend and I are speaking about our opinions on hetalia characters and how inaccurate they really are.Opinions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to tell you my opinions, and you can spam me with all the opinions your heart desires.
America- I was born here, I have lived in 3 different states and have been to 43 of them. Americans are not blonde little happy go lucky bastards that think they are heroes. Yes, I love Hima's America as a character, not as the representation of the whole United States of America. I don't even believe Americans are stereotyped to be this, yeah maybe in the 60s. I personally like the popular design for 2p!America more than the canon America. America is a cultural melting pot. Probably the biggest in the world. He is not going to be white washed if we have Natives in the great plains, Asians on the Pacific coast lines, African Americans in the south and Atlantic coast line, and Latins in the south. There is so much diversity. And another thing, A
OC Contest Results [Congratulations!]Welcome, welcome! I'm sure you've all been waiting very patiently, yes? Or impatiently. Gomen if you waited impatiently. I hope none of you went on a murderous rampage to pass the time while I thought these through.OC Contest Results [Congratulations!]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now there are just a few things I want to say before I announce the results.
I was judging characters on many things. Art style has nothing to do with who get chosen over others, so please don't assume that it was the biggest factor. No, what mattered to me the most was the following:
- the character's personality: did they seem interesting to me? Could I see potential on what could be expanded about the character in this doujinshi?
- how the character interacts with others: integration is the most important thing! What can also bring out a character's qualities is the way they interact with those around them. That's why I really wanted to see people talk about relations within their own subject... and I am big on dynamics.
- what is it about them that I'd want

how to himaruyaI PLANNED THIS PROJECT A LONG TIME AGO AND NOW I AM GOING TO START IThow to himaruya2 years ago in Personal More Like This
i might make a group
So many people are like "himastyle oh yeah!!" and it looks nothing like his style, so I want to change that, plus for people with hetaocs is makes it easy for profiles and fanart.
SO I plan on maybe making a youtube, so you can see it in action /you'll probably be hearing my voice aha
If the tutorials become successful.
It may sound like a ghetto idea right now but i have it all planned out.
A LIST NOW OF THINGS I'LL INCLUDE-
-How to draw different body shapes
-Different eye styles and shapes
-Different nose styles and shapes
-My brushes I use in sai to imitate hima's
-Accessories and props
I will try to fit all of that in, but it may not.
The tutorials will be very broken down, so even a 5 year old could understand.
and no i am not trying to teach people how to
a ramble about media and whitewashing and so onUhhh, so I noticed this thing about whitewashing going around in APH ASEAN fandom more lately and I just wanted to throw in my two cents.a ramble about media and whitewashing and so on3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Look, I get that the media prefers a lighter skintone - it's always been a thing and it's always going to be something pressuring those with naturally darker skintones. I get that. But the media is also known for doing other things for making a person insecure about themselves. They photoshop away any signs of fat, trying to gloss over these people so that their face shape is desirable, their figure is desirable, their skin is 'perfect' and so on. The thing is, you and I both know that the majority of people aren't like that and you should know that a lot of what you see isn't natural.
So please, if you are making an OC of a nation where the MAJORITY of the people from that nation are of a darker skintone, RESPECT THAT. That is your majority and your OC as a nation representation cannot discount that. Why do you think people get so uptight about char
This is for everyone tbhFirst of all I have to say THANK YOU.This is for everyone tbh1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don't have enough vocabulary to say thank you to you guys. yesterday I wanted to say thank you to everyone on a special journal but sadly i lost the spot of all the people who reported, messaged and spread the voice. So I think I said thank you to everyone who published a journal.
A thank you will never be enough guys, I owe you all a huge one.
It was really heart warming to see how the community reacted, And I say it is heart warming because other fandoms tag the Hetalia Fandom as one of the worst and probably one fandom that people will never be united ,but seems like we slapped them.
Thank you for helping me yesterday with this drama. I'm sorry for those who got bothered by the spam.
At first I thought this was going to be ignored, but wow guys you really impressed me.
And before people start to talk behind my back, I do not feel special because this got viral yesterday.
I do not feel more than anyone else

Initial oc designs (old pictures!) (let's laugh)Quite a considerable amount of people have asked me what it takes to develop a hetalia character, and it's really hard to write a specific response. You can't just make a good oc in one month! It takes a lot of time to slowly develop your characters, and that's okay, there's nothing to hurry about!Initial oc designs (old pictures!) (let's laugh)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, to make my point valid, let's have a look at how my hetalia ocs initially looked like! I hope you enjoy looking at my ocs' original appearances :')))
My first oc was obviously Argentina, and she was born around late October 2010. Her brown hair was lighter and her hairstyle was totally different (I wasn't very skilled at drawing hair anyways)
I literally created her to satisfy my UKArg needs.
Literally, I started shipping UKArg even BEFORE I had my own Argentina character.
So naturally, everytime I drew her she was with England. Like, a very tsundere girl who hates Iggyrisu!!!!!!!!!1 but at the same time she loved him because they had sexual tension oh!!!!!
And England obviously w

So forgive me, but I'll be clearing the folder of the WIP entries, because I cannot judge those.OC Contest is closed! [TOTALLY CLOSED]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, thank you so much for everyone who did enter! I must say I was really impressed with a lot of the entries.
Let me make something very clear though: just because I helped with your entries and was positive in my feedback doesn't mean I've really taken to the character and want to use your character as a notable member of the cast. Many characters will get a role though, and get panels where they say stuff, but some will of course become more central to the plot than others. Please don't take offense to this, but I'm working with such a large cast that's already got a lot to 'em already, so integrating a new set is gonna be tough work.
I'll make the big announcement about the results sometime after the 5th of January though, so please look forward to it! So um, let's take a moment to

February is a big month for me this year! On the 22nd, I will be turning 18! But a few days after, the 24th, marks me being on deviantART for 1 year!
So, I decided as a way for me to celebrate, I could hold my very first contest! Now, this contest will be focusing on Hetalia, because although I have drawn pictures of characters from other fandoms and such, throughout my year here of dA, Hetalia has been my main focus and will continue to be! I have become so close to so many amazing people in the APH fandom here on deviantART, and I just love being a part of this fandom! Being the only one in my group of friends irl who actually likes Hetalia (and anime in general - _ - ), it always makes me so happy to be able to come here
