New Netflix's Series Should Be A New 'Avatar show'From Paul Tassi Verified:New Netflix's Series Should Be A New 'Avatar show'4 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.
Tip of the Day: Believing is not DoingTip of the Day: A lot of times people might ask for advice and when they are told the answer, their reaction is "Oh I know that already." Believing in something isn't the same as acting upon what you believe in. Successful people DO the things they know they should do whether they like it or not.Tip of the Day: Believing is not Doing3 years ago in Personal More Like This

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.

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. The comic is repaired beyond belief.Sonic reboot: what else is there to say.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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...
Thanos from Super Hero Squad: Do-Over!
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
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
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

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,

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?

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

Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.
First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depend

7 TIPS FOR THE 21-YEAR-OLD ME by Bobby Chiu
When I was a student in college working on my skills as a character designer, I’d had periods where I would sit at my desk working as hard as I could but having little to show for my efforts at the end of the day. I remember sitting there surrounded by blank pieces of paper, trying to come up with an amazing style that nobody had ever seen before. I would do one drawing and not be satisfied, so I would lay a new piece of paper over it, re-draw it with slight changes to features here and there. This would still not be good enough so I would put another piece of paper over my revision, make more minor adjustments trying to perfect this new style I was searching for.
I did this for weeks on end, tweaking and polishing over and over, working hard every day. But in the end, did I come up with a brand new style, something amazing that

What is pixel art you ask? Pixel Art, as the name might suggest, is a form of art that is created pixel by pixel from the ground up. It tends to have an old-style retro look. Similar to what old computer games might look like. Think Atari 2600 and 8-bit Nintendo type games, with a little bit more detail, and then you'll have a general idea of what pixel art looks like. Or, you can, of course, proceed to the following links for some great examples of Pixel Art.
