I know, it's shocking. So, who do I have in my crosshairs today? SEGA.
What can be said about SEGA? Well, they started off as Nintendo's slightly less intelligent rival, and ended up becoming their bitch in 2002. After that, they made multiiple very good handheld titles, while their console games steadily got worse, culminating in a game to awful that it erased itself from the timeline. Then, however, things started to look up. Secret Rings was flawed, but playable, as was its sequel, Black Knight, and everyone loved Sonic Unleashed when it came out, and it's still not a bad game. Of course, Sonic Colours was fantastic, and the console version of Generations was amazing. I personally think the 3DS version is mediocre and that they've over-used the Rush formula and the "Play only as Sonic" thing. I'd like to see a new style of gameplay with Tails playabl
How to Stock 2- PosingWelcome to "How to Stock," a short series of articles on how to do some stock basics. We'll ask the big names in stock for their tips and opinions on how to get the best out of your stock shoot!How to Stock 2- Posing3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
For the second article, I asked SenshiStock, DaeStock, and jademacalla all about how to pose. Let's see what wisdom they have for us!
How do I decide how to pose?
:iconsenshistock: SenshiStock says:
Try thinking about what kind of image you want to create. If you are dressed in a costume, then you have that as a starting place. Try to become the character you're representing. What kind of actions would they take (leaping, running, sneaking, flying)? How would they move around (slowly, crawling, jumping, skipping)? If you're like me and you're focused solely on the pose, sometimes you still have to get 'in character' to come up with ideas. I like making a list before each

It's Like A DA Bookclub! YAY!So since I didn't know what to read... I created a poll... and wound up with a booklist as long as my arm. 0_0 These be too many books for one girl, had to share! Thanks for the suggestions guys! They're brilliant! Found some goodies already on my kindle, currently starting on Corporeal Daughters by our very own deviant bandeau can't tell you what I think yet.

Who your " Real Friends" are.
Self Portrait Challenge!Ok, so this is kinda linking back with something I thought about doing aages ago. But the main idea came from talking with some of you lovely people and the comments from this journal here: http://fav.me/d61xe9iSelf Portrait Challenge!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The power of self-perception, and the confidence (or lack thereof) you gain from it, does affect how you act and the choices you make in your life. And no I'm not talking about the whole "you are beautiful" thing so much as, how you see and percieve yourself. How we see ourselves is completely different to how other people see us.
I do notice this a lot, being a stock artist and having lots of artists draw me. One was worried that I'd be offended that he drew my legs a little large or something like that. Hell, doesn't bother me. Draw me as you see me, as how you percieve me, as how you want your art to turn out. The rest is superfluous really, since I play a character in my stock sets and none of them are really set as a piece to show me as well, me.
So that's my idea. Kinda l

Also, if you have come across any excuse people give to fave and not comment that I haven't covered here, comment below and I'll update this rant accordingly!
Thank you for your understanding and support!
UPDATE 2: Removed offensive language, due to two reasons:
1. Burlew has correctly pointed out the rather immature nature of the rant when it's riddled with swears. Thank you for highlighting this.
2. I'm calmer about this issue anyway. I'm not so vehement about this anymore, but I'd still like to make a point.
So there are these people who are fine with- No, PROUD of doing this thing called 'Faving and Running'. The general gist is this: These people meander through dA, mashing the 'Favourite' button to any old deviation, without leaving a comment or remark on the piece of wor

Macabre OC ContestAfter some debating, I have results!Macabre OC Contest3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
First Place: $30 USD or the equivalent in dA points
Awarded because it is incredibly, incredibly creepy to look at... I actually can't look at the picture for more than a couple of seconds before I always want to navigate away.
Second Place: $20 USD or the equivalent in dA points
The design of this creature is so cool, while also being really appealing to look at! I like that he lacks legs.
Third Place: $10 USD or the equivalent in dA points
This is super eerie and interesting to look at at the same time, one of the few that lacked a definitive human form. Worm-like creatures are always very interesting.
Some special mentions, other entries I debated against these that I also adored (they will be given a $5 or 400 DA Point honorary prize):

Not to mention the latest genesis wave was a very lazy, not to mention disrespectful way of rebuilding the universe. It's not a reboot, it's changing things up randomly in the hopes of undoing a mess only to make it a bigger mess! Some storylines that should have had conclusions didn't get one! I hate the Mecha Sally arc, but at least I hope that they would find at least something of a conclusion instead of...

Out of CharacterHey guys. THis is a pretty big topic, and it's one that constantly gets brought up here, but the problem as a whole has never been addressed. Time to rectify that.Out of Character2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, this was something that occured to me while I was reading :iconlaviarray:'s analysis of the comic as a whole, concerning the way Flynn writes. In my opinion, every single story would be perfectly fine... if he was writing about his own characters and not a cast who have mostly been established already. Basically, he's a fine story-writer, but he isn't a good character writer.
All too often in the comics, we see a character get shafted for the sake of the plot. In this case, it's a story that couldn't work if the character was acting normally, so they have to be derailed in order to make the story work. This, my friends is not how you write a story.
The thing with writing is that you have to make the story fit the characters, not the other way around. With OCs, it's fine. You made them, so you can shape their personaliti

Yes, comments are disabled on her YouTube video. But honestly, why does everyone see this as a "problem?" I know it's common wisdom to assume that if you hide comments you're "scared" of receiving criticism or some other bullshit, but think beyond that please.
1) Comments enabled would just allow hate speech and actual sexism to persist because the internet has already determined that everyone hates Anita. No matter how thoughtful or constructive your criticisms might be, YouTube's 500 character limit isn't the best place to give it, plus it would be drowned out by the trolls and haters spewing negativity.
2) Her videos are also meant more as a teaching tool, not a vlog series, and as such are potentially going to be used in classrooms. Probably a good idea to keep nasty comments of homophobia, racism, sexism, etc off of the main source of the video. I think that's backed up beautifully by having her tell parents to preview the
New Netflix's Series Should Be A New 'Avatar show'From Paul Tassi Verified:New Netflix's Series Should Be A New 'Avatar show'11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’m a week or so behind the times, but I’ve finally caught up with the final season of Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, including its absolutely sublime finale that fans will be talking about for years to come.
In it (spoilers), there are many fantastic moments, including Korra essentially forgiving the big-bad villain of the entire season, going out of her way to save her life instead of letting her be consumed by the superweapon she built.
But past that, the most talked-about portion was the final two minutes, where Korra and Asami, both ex-girlfriends of presumed romantic lead Mako, decide to take a vacation together into the Spirit World. The two walk hand into the portal of light and the final shot is them facing each other, practically nose to nose in a way that mirrors both the nuptial pose of two characters who got married minutes earlier in the episode, and the end of The Last Airbender which had Aang and Kitara kissing.

I thought I would share my good news with you.
Today I entered into the Western Australian Heats for the Madman National Cosplay Championships - there were a total of 7 entrants; the most from any state and the most WA has ever had.
The competition was fierce and I entered with my Lady Elizabeth Midford cosplay, doing a skit about 4 tips for capturing the heart of a prospective love interest (of course they were completely unhelpful).
I mean come on, does she look like a character you should take seriously?
Anyway.... I WON!
I was not expecting it at all. It was a massive surprise - they caught it on video so I'm sure my reaction will be available on youtube in a couple of days.
In short, it was awesome. This was the first major cosplay contest that I've enter

What is Fantasy?
It's an alternative world featuring magic or supernatural creatures/events. Vampires, werewolves, magicians, gargoyles, fairies, Slenderman and all those creatures are part of a fantasy genre. We often see fantasy in medieval times, but it still can happen in 2013. Examples of fantasy stories: Supernatural, Avatar, Narnia, Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft.
