Introducing Prose BasicsOnce again, the Literature Community is taking over projecteducate and this time it's to work on our prose writing. What better way than to go back to basics, right?Introducing Prose Basics11 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
What is prose?
Okay, maybe not that basic. Over the course of the week, we're going to be educating (or re-educating) you on the fundamentals of prose. Simple things that we overlook, but hear about constantly when receiving feedback and critique. You know, the flow of your story, crazy text walls, your dialogue and it's effectiveness, point of view and NOT switching it in the middle of the story, even how to start your story to have an effective hook and a bunch more but we don't want to give away all the surprises!
And since I don't have fancy schmancy GIFs to share :

FacebookHi guys,Facebook2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I can't upload any proper painting for a while so I opened a page on Facebook to upload some of my doodle. ( which is too rough to be uploaded to DA lol )
Here's the link if you're interested
All of my painting will still be uploaded to DA and my Pixiv, and I will share it on the page once there is a new update.
By the way some people are asking the difference between my DA and Pixiv
I uploaded all of my artworks to both sites, but some of them are not in pixiv since I'm too lazy to upload my old painting there lol
Usually my pixiv site will have the uncensored version of the pic, you will need an account to view my artwork there.

Hey guys. Thanks for all the support! This means a lot to me. But I've been discussing and have come understanding with a staff and here's what he said:
"As for your account, I am willing to offer you a second opportunity by moderating your indefinite suspension to one lasting just an additional two weeks but it comes with the understanding that if you submit any content like this again, whether publicly or to your sta.sh, your account will be terminated and you will not be allowed to return again."
So, yes. I might be returning to dA again after two weeks. So yay! Although it's still too early to party. Looking forward to being with you guys in two weeks. :3

When Being Human Just Isn't Enough:icontechgnotic:When Being Human Just Isn't Enough3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The allure of Anthro Art is obvious to anyone who ever “owned” and loved a pet. (Only those who have never loved and shared lives with a pet speak of pet “ownership”!) Once a bond has been formed between a human and an animal the rigid distinctions between what is human and what is animal begin to fracture.
The definition of “being” becomes suddenly far more expansive. And soon the bonded human begins feeling spiritual affinities with the “animal” that are undeniably powerful and as “real” as any felt with other humans. The desire to leave all the lies and hypocrisies of human society behind and join in with a simpler and somehow more “honest” society of different beings in nature can become palpable and intense. “The grass is always greener…” and, oh!, to scamper across it on four liberating paws!

2DS and Affleck as BatmanGoodness, I go away for a little bit and the whole internet freaks out.2DS and Affleck as Batman1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, like many, I think the Nintendo 2DS is pretty stupid. But where others go on to criticize Nintendo and screaming bloody murder, I chose to just let it slide because the Nintendo 2DS isn't meant for me so I don't really care one way or the other.
See this is the problem I see with people who bitch and moan about Nintendo. They treat every single announcement like it somehow personally affects them, when usually it's an OPTIONAL thing they don't have to even deal with. Remember during the casual vs hardcore wars of the Wii era and people decrying Nintendo for adding the option to let Luigi play a level of NSMBWii if you failed too many times? Brilliant idea that ensures that players that work at it succeed and never see the option, and players that are duly frustrated after dying X number of times are allowed to still proceed but at a cost. But nope, that announcement was treated a

Yeap, I received these notes a lot reporting me about my Free! being sold by amazon's irresponsible seller in here.
I honestly cant do anything. It's a fanart, and I don't own the series. but it's my drawing, so it's really complicated.
but for those who saw this work and being blind for thinking its official or something. then, please do not buy. >_>"a its our work.
Upset? yeah. but I'm too busy to deal with this. I prefer to keep productive and create more works (which is hardly happened. lol)
But Hey, If I'm promoting it here, means I'm opening big chance for them to sold it quickly, haha. So i really don't have any clue what to do about it.
Thanks so much for fans and friends who noted and reminds me about this, i really appreciate it.
But for me, I don't care anymore, feel free to get the hijack version. or you can get original

I manage to contact zephleit through his personal email and this is what he said (I copy and paste as it is)
Hello. I'm so glad you managed to contact me. I was so shocked, even until now...
dA banned my account because of a single picture that I made 2 years ago was considered "explicit" despite the fact that tagged it mature and has censorship to conform with dA's policies. This sucks even more because it all happened on my birthday. Thanks, dA, for such a wonderful gift. To those curious, I'm sorry, I don't have the picture in question...
The good news is... I plan on creating a new account soon. I have already filed an appeal to dA to lift my ban because I believe that my ban was unfair and that I was judged wholly and banned indefinitely based on that single pic alone. It would take a while so I don't want to create a new account yet. I want to wait for the results. So let's all
