Tracing gets you nowhere.I remember when I was a kid, I'd record Saturday morning cartoons, play them back, pause the image, put a piece of paper over the screen and trace my favourite characters.Tracing gets you nowhere.2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now this was really hard in the VHS era, because a paused image on a VHS is usually either broken up or shakes so much that you’ll have some kind of fit if you look at it too long, it depended on how cheap and sh*tty your machine was.
But I worked really hard at it, man. I spent ages getting the linework just right, I was so careful, and when I peeled the page from the static cling of the bulbous, cathode ray tube screen, the character looked exactly right on the page. And you wanna know what I took away from that endeavour? What all that effort taught me?
Jack f**king sh*t.
You don’t pick up or develop any skills by tracing. You don’t devise and perfect your own methods by tracing. You do not progress as an artist by tracing. All you get is a loss of credibility, especially in this day and age, bec
Don't Take AbuseI don't know how much of an issue this is here, but just in case it is I think it's important to give some information and encouragement. I saw a recent post by The Thinking Atheist about a 17 year old who was outed as being an atheist to Christian parents. Since I don't have permission to post their story here, and it's pretty personal, I will just say check out The Thinking Atheist facebook page for details, but essentially this lead to both physical and emotional abuse by a rather intense religious father. This is by no means an isolated incident, for teens or young people still dependent on religious parents, coming out as nonChristian or nonreligious can be a real risk. Everything from abuse to being kicked out on the street to losing college funding or other financial stability, as well as the obvious risk of emotional turmoil amongst family. When previous safe havens like church suddenly aren't an option, and religious friends might turn their back, it can be very isolatingDon't Take Abuse2 years ago in Personal More Like This

1. Final Fantasy 8: Squall is dead.
Now I'm not a big fan of Final Fantasy games (I mean, the only RPG I ever played were pokemon games. And no. There are no pokemon theories on this list. That's a list for it's own, another day), but I find this fan theory interesting and somewhat plausible. At the end of disc 1, your character, Squall is impaled by an ice spike through the chest and falls over a ledge, to what seems like his death. But in the next disc, he's completely fine and no one seems to acknowledge how he survived. And it goes from the standern Final Fantasy norm to fighting space aliens. This got fans to speculate that Squall died at the end of disc 1 and the rest of the game is his dying dream. Fans also clam to have seen this image in the end credits: http://squallsdead.com/endshot8.jpg Pretty spooky. Now I probably butured that whole thing, so if you wan

In case you need some inspiration, let me list a few things I'm personally glad to be rid of after leaving Christianity:
Shitty Christian music.
Shitty Christian books.
The stares and disapproving glances at church.
The self righteous pissing contests over who can be the most “godly” (ie not masturbate the longest or who can quote the most scripture).
Constantly wasting time reading and memorizing the pointless rewritten retranslated words of ancient ignorant flat earthers as if it was the most important task in life (for said pissing contests).
Constantly praying, whether physically on my knees or having a one-way conversation with Big Brother in my head, despite never seeing prayer answered or understanding the purpose for it if god supposedly had

Devious Journal Entry'Ey guys just a little, note, thingy, here,Devious Journal Entry1 month ago in Personal More Like This
So I've gotten at least half a dozen "Are you still doing creepypasta" or "Are you still doing asks" comments, and it's getting a little annoying tbh. Soo please stop asking, and yes I am aware that people who ask these questions, the majority of them seem to be the type of people who don't read descriptions or journals, but eh I'll write this anyway.
To answer the question though, yes I still am going to draw creepypasta, and yes I still am going to do the asks. I've just been on a, very long hiatus I guess. No motivation, don't like drawing without motivation. I do have another application thingy to do for Proxy High group so I will do that, eventually. Eventually.
Aaand if you did put up one of those comments and you are the type of person who reads descriptions and journals, first of all thank you for actually reading the often important description, but please don't feel bad about adding a comment after learning that it vexe

It is not a tutorial and I do not have pictures of the process because I didn't think of it when I was making it, and I'm not going to make another. You will need some previous knowledge of sewing to follow these instructions. I am absolutely not going to teach people to sew - there are lots of resources on the internet if that's what you want.

Let me just say this...Americans are the biggest idiots I've ever met. Now, not all of them are, but the large majority. When you get off your plane and can't move forward because some douche decides to stop and text on his IPhone in the middle of the aisle of the plane, you would get kinda pissed off. When you calmly ask the person to please keep moving, people need to get off the plane, you would expect them to say "I'm sorry" and keep moving. Not turn the fuck around and say "Shut your damn mouth Commie, I'll move when I fucking want to. Just because you're not used to having the freedom to do as you please, doesn't mean you have to be a cunt about it."
Yah, that exactly what happened. Then the dick decides to look at us an laugh, saying how "fucking freaky and stupid we look"...Because having your hair gelled in spikes, a tan so orange you look like the Lorax, and wearing a baggy pants and a wife

Employing or following nontraditional or unconventional ideas, methods, etc.; existing outside the establishment: an alternative newspaper; alternative lifestyles.
Of course there are many definitions of the word "alternative" but the recurring theme of this feature is most related to the definition above. This feature isn't focused on just the goth/emo/scene/punk/etc labels that everyone feels the need to fall under, but just the appreciation of what is truly different, unique, weird, strange, and everything in between that might stand out in a crowd.
