New Netflix's Series Should Be A New 'Avatar show'From Paul Tassi Verified:New Netflix's Series Should Be A New 'Avatar show'3 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.
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
Sonic reboot: what else is there to say.I've given up on the comics as you know. Though I thought about picking up as Ian would leave...nope, the damage is too big. Ian has butchered the characters and plots beyond believe, the continuity is so over the place you could swear a dozen hurricanes went through it and sega puts too much mandates.

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...

Exactly! Not to mention that they have to segafy the archie characters...why? I don't mind new outfits, but it's not limited to outfits, it's sefafying: less detail, less unique body structures and less app
Contest Ideaokay so based on that earlier poll about the design contest,Contest Idea1 year ago in Personal More Like This
basically i've been thinking of a conflict for the LOAF series and i came up with something!
So, the cottage Haylu lives in is a small Michigan condo next to the Michigan Lake. However, there is still danger that lives nearby the happy go lucky house.
There are creatures that live outside a sort of "force-field" of the house. These dark monsters represent Haylu's depression and anxiety. They cannot pass through the forcefield, but can damage it. The only possible areas vulnerable to them are far from the house, down into the forest path or in the trails. (i will make a map later)
These creatures act like ghouls, they can enter Haylu when she is open and it will drain all her happiness and emotions out. It is the job of the characters in the cottage to protect her from them at all costs. The creatures can also take the form of the other characters, however, not identical. They will still have a shadowy, evil and om

Between Sci-Fi and Fantasy
Create a character or a scene featuring the concept of Sci-fi and/or Fantasy by using my Stock as a reference.
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.

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

Red heliotrope scores and blanched
A singing of nerves hewn to a cry:
Fine-tuned and skinned
To carpal ascension,
The quivers of a quaver
Due to crescendo.
I hovered, wing-like, on the husk
Of schizocarp dreams,
But sprang forth undone
By chorus and synchrony.

We hope you've all been doing your best over at Camp NaNo this past month, and the Admin Team are overjoyed to announce to you an upcoming project!
With NaNo fever all over the Literature scene here on dA, the dL Admins got together and asked each other, "What is the most difficult thing about NaNoWriMo and Camp?" Then, MoonlightWillow6 came up with the answer - character building. So, we thought, what better than to have a month-long character-oriented challenge between the two months of Camp NaNo?
So, we are proud to present, the DeviantLITERATURE Characte
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!2 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
What could have been.Another trope title, and hey, I'm not writing this in the middle of the night!What could have been.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, thanks to sadly ex-Deviant :iconreecetails:, I can confirm something, and then immediately say 'called it', as I am wont to do. Through email, he sent my a planel from the CHaotix SU arc, which shows Mighty being confronted by Beauregard. Silhouetted in the doorway is none other than Bunnie.
Now, onto the other half of this. Again, for the uninformed, 'What Could Have Been' is a trope that describes fans wondering about what a series would have been like if those in control of it didn't act like a bunch of fucktarts.
Normally, this relates to early concepts leaked by the creators later on, but here, we're just thinking better ideas up for ourselves. :iconsonicsatamx93: has an epic rewrite of 230, and is also starting something in a similar vein from 235-6. I myself have ripped this arc apart and written endings for it that work better than what we're likely to get,

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- Posing2 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

Ranting again- SEGA are as much to blame as Flynn.Yes, indeed I am. Now, for the most amazing you're likely to read on my page for a while: It's not about Ian Flynn.Ranting again- SEGA are as much to blame as Flynn.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

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):
There were a lot of very good entries, and a wide range of macabre subjects!

The Three Acts structureA story is something with a beginning, a middle and an end.The Three Acts structure2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As simple as that.
Now every writer has a different approach to this but let's face it: we all need to begin somewhere, explain something and then wrap it up... timing and delivery of the story are a personal choice.
The most common structure used in Hollywood movies is called: the three acts structure.
Consider your horizontal line to be the plot (or the line along which you assemble all the actions that take place during the story)... some people like to call this line: "story spine".
We said before that a story is something that needs: a dude, with a dilemma and how he deals with it.
We saw that we need a character, an environment a need/drive/dream for the main charac
