You Spotlight the Under Appreciated - Volume 2You Spotlight the Under Appreciated - VolumeYou Spotlight the Under Appreciated - Volume 24 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A while ago, I ran a poll where I asked my watchers and visitors to show me artists they loved, but who they felt were under-appreciated. There were so many suggested artists, I couldn't fit them in one article. This is second in the series. I have to admit, it was amazing visiting the galleries of these little and somewhat known deviants. The artists was suggested by a commenter, the piece chosen was selected by me. I have also included some of my own personal "under-appreciated artists" at the end.
A special volume 3 will be coming soon.

The State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYACAbout SYACThe State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYAC10 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of the reasons I focus so much attention on Marvel and DC is because they’re big companies who should know better. They are made up by hundreds of people all chipping in little bits here and there, and for that there is no excuse for bad artwork, bad writing, or bad material in general. They are, to an extent, a bit of a cheap shot, but everyone can learn from their mistakes and I can offer my opinions about them and what I personally would do differently. And if you’re paying money for their products, I think you deserve good content in return, no?
SYAC is, at it’s core, about how comic artists and the comic industry works and poking fun at the various things they get wrong... and sadly that includes a lot of really hot button topics like Women’s Rights, Sexism, Racism, Homophobia, etc. Comics are no longer their own sheltered little thing... they’ve been THRUST into the mainstream audience and all of these problems we or

Hi everyone! In my last journal entry I asked if it was okay to write this and I got a good amount of people giving me the okay so here I am.
Now as I said before and above in the warning, it will be detailed since in too many how to's of this, people say the same thing. Looking up popular and well written lemons do help since you can see how it is written and what to do. But, what a lot of people end up doing is just basically copying lemons and moving some things around to match the characters that are in the lemon. Whether it's an xReader or one with your OTP, a lemon is smut and smut is porn. And everyone wants the good stuff.

Birthday JournalYesterday, I had one of my best birthdays ever.Birthday Journal2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But the story starts way back in December during an anime convention. I thought my OC SPOT deserved more love, so I approached our resident artists who were doing sketch commissions and asked them if they were willing to draw a mecha dog. Most of them said no, so I, dejected, decided to doodle him myself:
A few minutes later, kirej7 drew his version of SPOT for me, waaarf!
Time passed, and when my birthday was nearing, I accidentally caught a glimpse of SnT2k's work in progress of SPOT on Dennis's hoverboard. He posted the "final" version of it soon after, saying that hiding it was useless.
Deep inside, I felt happy because my wish somehow came true. What happened after was beyond my expectations.
January 14, my gift from awesome artist and [animal] master stryler arrived. I was delighted as I never expected it to arrive within a week from when it was shipped from Malaysia.

We all have those things that we don't like but everybody else loves. It's a part of coexistence in society: as individuals, we can't always love those things that are hold in the highest of regards. But that doesn't mean they are more right or wrong: it just means that they have their own opinions, and such is my case. I usually don't like to start my posts in such a defensive, apologetic manner, but some people don't seem to be able to realize that. That not everyone can enjoy things that most of people do.

Friends Forever #13 (Beware Spoilers!)Our story begins with a pony who’s not the focus of this comic: Sweetie Belle. She awakens to an ear infection with the most curious reaction: “Naaarrrrrrr!”Friends Forever #13 (Beware Spoilers!)3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I shall have to try that expression the next time I suffer harm. It seems… unexpected.
Rarity steals the show next page with a full-drama entrance, complete with treating her bed-ridden sister as if she were on death’s doorstep. Followed by confirmation that she’s not contagious. This is what I enjoy about Rarity: her extreme reactions with snippets that show something beneath the fashionista tropes.
Anyway, it’s off to Manehatten for Rarity for another round of being Sapphire Shores’ designer. Things take a turn as Babs shows up. Rather poor communication on Sweetie Belle’s part not to tell Rarity that Babs was coming. Then again, the ponies in this franchise really aren’t great at logistics.
The comic does several things right with Babs. First of all, it

Katie Cook’s writing has featured more and more winks at the audience, usually with the characters acknowledging that something doesn’t make sense. In this case, a camp of settler ponies admits that the plan from the previous issue was plain dumb. Not a great way to start, saying “Our heroines were idiots.”
Longhorn makes his master move: to legally file for ownership of Rancho Bronco. Applejack’s counter-plan requires misdirection. While Twilight and Fluttershy keep Longhorn bogged down in paperwork, the others try various tactics to move the bull camp off the land and invalidate their claim. They fail repeatedly, usually due to poor planning or incompetence. There’s a very strong Looney Toons vibe to these scenes. They’re being played for comedy, with absurdities from both the bulls and the ponies, yet fail to include something important.
In Looney Toons, the incompetency was on the part of the villains. They would fail, and

As young as I can remember I was trained to help, protect and defeat evil, I was gifted with magic powers beyond others comprehension. I can turn my skin into dragon scales to absorb power and my lungs are the same as a dragons to breath fire as well as the strength. My father was a soldier of the foreign "Drachentöter" German for dragon slayer, and my mother part of the "La santé de l'érable" French for maple health. With the power I was given was a long and hard road to learn but at the end my training was almost complete. I chose to put on a mask to cover my face, only my family has seen my face but that was a long time ago. I'm 15 now in a new land filled with people, especially evil ones.

Tips on Keeping Characters/OCs RealisticHello everyone! I've debated which topic I should give tips on (a few others were how to keep Levi in character, how to describe scenes, etc) and this one was what I finally went with. Basically, I'm going to give some tips and examples on how to keep your OC "realistic", and prevent them from becoming a Mary Sue. Why is this important you may wonder? Well, if you're reading a story/fanfiction/whatever, and there's a perfect character, doesn't it just feel plain annoying? If I'm reading a story and see a character is way too perfect to be true - I'll probably stop reading it.Tips on Keeping Characters/OCs Realistic6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm sure I'm not the only one that may feel this way. Now, I'm not saying that your character has to be the most imperfect thing to ever exist, I'm just giving my humble ideas on how to keep a character realistic and believable.

If you watch me and have no works of your own to show: That makes me a bit sad. Even if you say that you're just here for the works of others, I am sure that you have amazing visions that would be worth sharing with the world. I understand if you don't feel confident enough to try and turn those visions into actual pictures, and would rather ask others to do it for you. Maybe one day you will try and learn to fly by your own wings. That would make me happy.
If you watch me and have works in your gallery: I am interested in your development as an artist. I may not watch you, but being so lucky as to have so many people already watching me, I have to be selective, or else I'll get overwhelmed and that will end up getting in th
Dracula BeginsDracula Begins6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Halloween fast approaches…
…and with it, the latest re–make, this time an “origins” story, of the “Dracula” legend (“Dracula Untold”, October). For some magical or medical reason Dracula so stimulates and fascinates our psyches that it has survived and thrived since publication in 1897. Rather than present a synopsis of the original novel’s narrative for the few of you that haven’t read it or seen at least one of its movie versions, what is offered here is a rough charting of the evolution of this story.
Dracula and his Ladies by dashinvaine
Bram Stoker was Dracula’s creator.

Things You Probably Shouldn't CommentWARNING: The following material is terrifying and has actually been commented. Sorta.Things You Probably Shouldn't Comment3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Okay so after much contemplation and reconsidering my entire life I have made a list of the most horrid comments that I'd prefer you wouldn't leave. Most of this is exaggerated but you get the idea. I will break down why these comments are unwanted and unneeded.
1. Asking for a sequel. (EXAGGERATION FOR ALL YOU PEEPS IN NEED OF LAME HUMOR: part 2?/?/?/??????/?)
Must I elaborate? Well, I said I would, so I guess I will. It's highly annoying when you're a writer that has spent countless hours working and tweaking your piece to perfection - and when you're finally proud of it, spirits high, ready to share it with the world, yet get the comment. It's rude on so many levels, it's basically saying the story itself wasn't good enough for the person. Just don't comment this stuff. There are a few writers I know that don't mind these types of commen
