~*~Episodic Challenge~*~Okay, this isn't so much a challenge as it is just some fun with the episodes. Basically, you draw any scene from any episodes from Series 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. As long as it involves Rose and the Doctor and at least just the Doctor and just Rose. And if the episode didn't have Rose in it then just do the Doctor or put Rose where his current companion is. Even if someone has drawn a picture for that them you can reuse it. If you have a picture that fits one of these episodes then note it to us or post it in the journal here.~*~Episodic Challenge~*~4 years ago in Personal More Like This

World-building, for me, is one of the biggest things about fantasy. It has, in many cases, saved a book from sucking. Conversely, poor world-building can drag a brilliant plot and excellent characterization down. What is world-building? It is consistency of logic and the new rules that you introduce as part of the story. Easy to say, hard to do. World-building, in good fantasy, more often than not, provides some kind of critical plot point. (If it doesn't, that's okay, but really good fantasy usually takes an established rule and gives it story stakes.)
Examples? Phillip Pullman establishes the rule of daemons in his His Dark Materials trilog

What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

David Tennant/Billie Piper 50th Anniversary ReturnDavid Tennant and Billie Piper will appear in the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who, the BBC has confirmed.David Tennant/Billie Piper 50th Anniversary Return2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tennant was the 10th Doctor and Piper played his on-screen companion Rose Tyler in the BBC One show.
Filming on the show, which will also star John Hurt, will start next week.
Tennant's successor, Matt Smith - also in the special with his new assistant played by Jenna-Louise Coleman - says fans "will not be disappointed" by the 3D show, due to air on 23 November.
Tennant and Piper have long been rumoured to be making a return for the special, which is being written by the show's executive producer and lead writer Steven Moffat.
In January, Piper, appearing on the Graham Norton show, denied she would be appearing.
"I wasn't asked, no," she said.
"I think Matt Smith may have said, in passing or in jest, it would be nice.

He walked into my life a rather long time ago when I was about 8 or 9. It was once I saw him. He had just regenerated and it was his very first episode as the 10th. Dad had displayed him on the TV for me and mom. Mom didnt care for the show. (Even though she's a sci-fi fan) I, on the other hand, was just confused. Who was this strange British man? Who was this blonde girl who was with him? And what was this strange blue phone box he had?
I never found out why, as I was very young and interested in other things. The last thing I saw, was him looking though the television screen at me and perhaps the audience watching him. And then he was gone. Like the 11th when he met Amy as a child, and told her to wait for him. And when she did, she ended up waiting her life. I only waited 7 years.
He came back one day through one of my favorite shows. He was a famo

"As much as Russell T Davies and the Ninth Doctor combined, Rose is the person who resurrected Doctor Who the show, because she represents the fans who loved it and wanted it to come back better. She not only healed the emotional wounds of the Doctor himself, she healed ours too, allowing the show to return in triumph, not limp out with all the same tired old gags, for a wheezy victory lap."

Sorry Mario BrosSorry Mario BrosSorry Mario Bros2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Say what you will about Anita Sarkeesian, you gotta admit that people do take note of what she says for good or ill. In this piece of news, it's for the good.
As you might already know, in her latest video she outlined a simple "damsel frees herself" video game. Nothing too spectacular but it showcased how one can subvert the typical trope and make a strong female character out of it. While many were quick to criticize her for not making the game herself (given her kickstarter success), others took a more direct approach and actually made a game in 2 weeks.
The game is called "Sorry Mario Bros," and the plot is that Princess Peach decides to rescues herself by leaving Bowser's castle in world 8-4. You progress right to left through familiar, but slightly altered, original Mario Bros. worlds working your way backwards towards world 1-1. Along the way you can take detours and use Peach's float ability to reach hidden areas and collect "princess coins."
Artist Goals and RacismIntrospectionArtist Goals and Racism3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I think it’s important for artists to be introspective. I think it should be the goal of any cartoonist or artist to take a step back, look at the world, and question and challenge all assumptions and normalities. So often little social stigmas and issues go completely unnoticed by a vast majority of the population, that I think it’s important to be reminded of where we are, how things work, and challenge the status-quo.
I believe that’s one of the most fundamentally important things about being an artist. It’s not the artistic skill level, it’s your ability to poke fun at stuff and make average people question their routines. While artistic skill is important, the average consumer doesn’t really care about artistic merits if the overall message is conveyed well. I’ve seen many stick-figure comics and supposedly “low-skill” artists resonate with people because of the message they’re sending.
