Was reading some comments (Rant Warning)Don't read if ya don't like rants o3o.Was reading some comments (Rant Warning)2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Was reading comments on peoples adopts and commission info stuff.
(Felt so bad for the artists, got angry for them actually, and Ta-da! A rant has formed)
For the ones who complain about prices, just so you know, artists undersell themselves on DA.
Keep in mind that even $400 for a piece of work is considered ridiculously cheap for an artist, especially on the outside world.
So really you have no right to complain most of the time o-o, with stuff only going for $10 - $300 ninety percent of the time on DA. Even if it's more than $300, still no right to complain over it, the artist is trying to make a living.
If you don't like it then don't buy it, and don't leave comments about the prices and put the artists down.
You aren't being forced to buy the thing.
- Also keep in mind that artists need to eat and pay bills too. I know it's said a lot, but people still don't seem to understand that.

A Collaboration between MARX77 & DeevElliott
What must any of us do before we can understand what we read in the Book of Life? When is one ready to write upon its pages his or her own contributions?
Life is no passive gathering of information. It is not a spectator sport. Only in participation is one truly alive. In order to express feelings or opinions about anything in life, one must have a personal experience of it. Only personal experience conveys the qualification and the right to speak, to write or to create art as explanation and explication of any topic of discussion and debate.

Star Wars meets Marvel

We certainly hope so!

Once Upon A Time
Fairy tales usually begin once upon a time—a time that need not be identified because the tale, and its meaning, are of a timeless nature. The landscape of a fairy tale is often dreamlike, as if to tell us trying to apply normal logic to the story will only confuse the point that the storyteller is trying to make. Fairy tales usually involve dangerous journeys, often following after or searching for a wayward loved one, and entail a getting lost in the mists of time and space. The climax is almost always the discovery of a heretofore unknown inner store of courage in the face of evil and imminent death. Fairy tales tell our child

LEGENDS OF HAVAI UPDATES| 08.16.14LEGENDS OF HAVAI UPDATES8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm here to share some game news and updates along with screenshots. First off, I'm putting my region and Fakemon on Pokengine, a Pokémon based MMO still in beta (sorry, no invites right now). Features including Pokémon following you, custom skins, battling, minigames, and more.
Also some may have have expected the game to be released on the 11th, it was just a guess date. But things happen and the engine is being rewritten. So please bare.
Off To Havai
Welcome to the Havai Region! Havai is a tropical region made up of islands. It is located nearby the Orohn Region. Both regions are quite small, with few cities and few Gyms.Together they are considered as a whole region. On an island in between the regions is the Pokémon League which requires 4 badges from both Orohn and Havai to enter.
Sometime in the game, you'll be able to visit different regions like Atlas, Dhiome, or Rezai!
The Future of RWBYTaken from Gray's journal on the RT site:The Future of RWBY2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Given the excitement and questions that came out of PAX East over the weekend (sorry we couldn't be there!), maybe now would be a good time to talk briefly about the future of RWBY's production.
RWBY Volume 3 will indeed premiere this year. While the animation crew is hard at work on RvB13, RWBY is returning to the early stages of pre-production. Kerry and Miles are getting ready to dive into the scripts, and I'm talking to the guys about pre-viz. Meanwhile, Shane's already choreographing a new fight sequence (Argh - want to tease this matchup so much! Let's just say Yang intends to teach someone a well-deserved lesson), and our tenacious tech team is getting the production pipeline ready.
For those wondering, Monty was heavily involved in shaping the future of the world of Remnant. His story ideas will live on, and you will also be able to see some of

ORAS: Zinnia - A very sad storyHeya! Alright I decided to give a closure to ORAS journal by talking about the exclusive character for Delta Episode: Zinnia.ORAS: Zinnia - A very sad story5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Actually she appears once or twice during the main storyline but heck I'm not spoiling when, find her yourself hehehe
Anyway, I will describe her like this:
Zinnia is the deepest character after N.
I will tell you, if Delta Episode wasn't so short (2 hours long of gameplay, but compared with the rest of the game, is very short), Zinnia would be doubtful a rival to N in terms of character development. But because of the length, she left a bit vague and rushed regarding herself and so many peeps got a bit confusing, including myself. So I checked several posts on tumblr describing her, and by seeing some easter eggs noted by the gamers, I finally get it. Well the plot disappointed me it was predicable and too simple but her? Worthy of a note.
So what's her about? Zinnia is a woman (yes, she's an adult) who's descendent of a clan called draconis, a group of

How to make a good OC, avoiding Mary/Gary SuesOk, I've been seeing really crappy OC's (original characters) floating around the place lately. I thought that I could help you guys out here.How to make a good OC, avoiding Mary/Gary Sues2 years ago in Personal More Like This
-What is a original character? It's a fan-made character someone usually makes for a book, show, game, etc that is used as a means to "interact" with the main characters of a book, show, game, etc. Unfortunately, some people get this wrong and their character/self-insert may become a Mary/Gary Sue.
-What is a Mary/Gary Sue? Well....they have the following traits:
-The plot of the book, show, game, etc goes THEIR way (If this only briefly mentions a canon character and is more oc-centric, it's usually ok)
-They have NO weaknesses
-Any and all characters are attracted to them
-They have a TRAGIC past
-They are a long lost relative or are the long lost lover/girlfriend/boyfriend to a character or more
-They die a TRAGIC death
-Every good guy and bad guy likes or loves them
-Immortal, can bring people back from the dead

New Spriting Competition!Hey there everyone! This is DoubleJEspejwan6!New Spriting Competition!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
And I have come to you with some interesting, and hopefully exciting news. Now, when I had first started spriting, I had released a video for a competition on YouTube called Pokemon Face Off, in which people would comete in a long-term spriting competition. I got a couple of people signed up, but it never really took off. Now that I know many spriters are out there (and more prevelent on Deviantart), I wanted to bring the competition to life! It is called Pokemon Spriting Face Off. If you don't know what Face Off is, it is a competition in which people create stunning prosthetic make-ups for a certain challenge. Someone wins the challenge, and whoever has the worst makeup is sent home. This is exactly what I want to do on Deviantart, except with sprites! This is how the game works.

I am haunted in this holiday season by the opening lines of Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, his novel about a society 250 years ago coming apart in its seemingly irreconcilable divisions. Could it be these lines define where we have come to find ourselves today?
