The Roman Redress
Nearly a year after the events of How to Train your Dragon, and Berk is barely recognizable. Humans and dragon live side-by-side, managing, after much trial and error, to find a symbiotic existence. The interspecies peace is maintained by Hiccup and his personally-trained peers through the Dragon Training Academy. Astrid and Hiccup have grown closer over time; their teetering relationship slowly drifts from uncertain to comfortable.
Things are well for the Hooligans but not quite smooth. Already burdened by responsibilities no Viking has faced before, Hiccup’s father is now "gently" pressuring him to take on even more—the Becoming Chief sort of responsibilities. His relationship with Astrid bears some strain from

Sonic Comic Dramas...... that I want you to watch!Sonic Comic Dramas...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I just got back from me brother's wedding overseas - had an awesome time and it was great to finally see my bro taking the next big stage in life, looking forward to seeing his kids in the future!
Anyways I'd like to point out some really awesome Sonic Comic Dramas that got me through some of the homework I did for the Academy of Art university a couple weeks ago. I'm going to make a proper list a little later so that I can conveniently go to it during my times of tedious work! Be sure to check these out when you get the chance!

Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean MindWelcome to the first 30 day challenge! This month’s challenge is:Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean Mind2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Clean Media, Clean Mind
You’ve heard “you are what you eat” and it applies to more than just food. So the challenge is to clean up what sites you visit, videos you watch, and music you listen to. After the month is over, tell us via picture or journal how changing what you consume, has changed how you think, speak, and act. Things to cut out of your media diet: sex, drugs, drinking, swearing, occult, and violence.
These challenges will be harder for some than others, so I’ve included three levels of commitment.
Level 1: baby steps
Cut out media that is blatantly sinful. I’m talking porn, violent movies, songs that swear every other word, etc. If it’s too hard to hold off for 30 days, consider how that itself is a problem. Are you making media an idol? Talk to a trust friend about it or a fellow group member. Also consider listening to a positive radio station:
Sonic Art Collection MagazineSo what's thie Sonic Art magazine all about?Sonic Art Collection Magazine2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First here's what would look like in the newsstand or local comic book store shelf.
Not bad huh? Just to clarify to everyone this is a mock publication that will be personally submitted (in person) to Archie Comics at Comic Con San Diego 2013 as a portfolio review (and as a gift too!). I plan to have a chat with Paul Kaminski (current Editor/Executive Director of Editorial at Archie Comics) and see what I need to do to gain a spot to work there in the near future.
And to be honest with you, many people here may think that I want to be one of the sequential artists, or be the one in charge of artistic direction (ie in the visual sense, like advanced story boarding ) of the stories that Ian writes for the Sonic series, or be one of those who help touch up the comic art (eg inker/colourist/letterer etc) but the reality is I'm not really interested in those aspects - and I know for a fact t

I have a question (Leo and Karai)Do you think LeoXKarai still has a chance?I have a question (Leo and Karai)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a while since this new version of TMNT started and we all should know that Leo had/has a crush on Karai ever since the beginning of the show. But as far as Karai goes, I have no idea if she had/has a crush on him, but I doubt it though. She's been more of a bitch to the turtles then April ever was. Yes, she was interested in Leo joining the dark side and there might be a chance that she wanted to help Leo defeat snakeweed (even though of course he isn't dead) but that doesn't really change anything, especially now we know what happens later in the series.
She didn't even help them with a mutant SHE created and Leo TRUSTED her but she didn't give a shit. I know, I know, "but cupcake, she's a villain. It won't be a surprise that she did that", but still. It means she's a villain, that doesn't mean it's ok. To me

Veterans Day, and dear Flippy suesHappy veteran's Day.Veterans Day, and dear Flippy sues3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Speaking of Veteran's Day, let's talk about the people that unconsciously disrespect it...
What do Flippy sues have to do with Veteran's Day? Well, in the show Happy Tree Friends, Flippy- the veteran soldier bear, has a severe condition called post traumatic stress disorder. Every time he "flips out", he sees his surroundings as part of the war, and he kills anyone he sees in sight.
Fans mistaken Flippy as "evil", or a "killer". But if you research the wiki, or watch the Happy Tree Friends live stream, Kenn Navarro himself (creator of HTF) says Flippy has PTSD. PTSD is a real life condition. A serious one at that, and it mostly happens to veterans. When they hear or see anything that is similar to anything in the war, they "relive their flashbacks" as how I explain it.
Poor Flippy has to deal with what we call "Flippy sues". Flippy sues are wannabe made-up big-ass-boobed characters that happen to live just one pathetic dream- be Flippy's girlfriend / w

How will Donnie and Casey's relationship unfold?In the latest episode when casey finally gets introduced to the guys. didnt you notice something?How will Donnie and Casey's relationship unfold?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well i was gonna say he looked really mad, but they all looked pretty sore
So how do you think their relationships gonna unfold? we all already know that donnie doesnt like the idea of case being around april. Are they going to be friends or what? are they gonna always get on eachothers nerves? well casey getting on dons nerves is certain no questions asked. I think that hes gonna try his best to avoid casey at all costs, and not really want to talk to him. last night me and my sister talked and i thought up this
Casey walked up to donnie, april not following far behind. and he prepared to ask him of something. "hey D, i was wondering if you could-"
"oh- um. sorry man. I've got to uh... go do the- thing in the...place." he muttered slowly backing away towards the entrance to his lab. "byyyeeee." w

(...) Everyone has a moment when they think “I am a bad artist.” and they think that because they see a level of skill they have not achieved yet. If this is the case, every artist ever is a bad artist, because every artist ever has had some idea, some plan, some goal of a skill level or creation that they have not achieved yet. And that’s good. Learning and growth and moving forward are all good things, so instead of trying to be some fictionalized version of a good artist, let’s all be bad artists together.
