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.

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 Realistic11 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.
Tip 1; Know The Canon World They're in
This is a very important step. I'll use the Attack on Titan world as an example. If your character is from the AoT world, trust me, they

My UnderSea Underground TeeFury shirtMy UnderSea Underground TeeFury shirt1 year ago in Personal More Like This
13 hours left to buy my "Undersea Underground" TSHIRT on TeeFury!
People often tell me they want to support my art and many do. There are also people who want to support my art but can't make it to a con to get a sketch or can afford a commission. THIS is the perfect way to support what I do!
Buying this shirt (and hopefully ones in the future), you're allowing me to make more time for "Midknight"and my comic Universe, which is something that I've wanted to get out to you all for far too long!
If you have already bought a shirt, thank you! If you will be before they're retired at 9pm PT/midnight EST, I thank you in advance!

Before I say anything about the film, if you want to keep yourself completely spoiled from the film, then do not visit here. I am going to provide a link of the movie once it's online, but it will be at top of this journal so you won't have to risk reading this review. Unfortunately, there are a handful of bronies who posted lot of images of the film, so I'm sorry. But all joking aside, this is going to be my thoughts on the new movie.
It's obvious that Rainbow Rocks was going to be better than the Equestria Girls. The story is more complex, and the villains are more threatening. Also, the many cameos of characters in this film were great. Those aspects make the movie worth it to watch.
When it comes to issues I have for the film.
Zeviant FartThere's nothing more I can add to the debate/communal rant currently taking place that has not already been said, other than repeat my opinion that, if something requires explanation, it's not art. This is doubly so when it comes to a logo, which is supposed to convey a message by way of a simplified image, be that message a name or a graphical representation of purpose and/or meaning.Zeviant Fart9 months ago in Personal More Like This

MLP Issue 26 Review (Spoilers!)The StoryMLP Issue 26 Review (Spoilers!)8 months ago in Personal More Like This
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

Check out this brilliant tribute to Robin Williams, painted by Yuuza!!
On the lethality of mental illness
We were saddened deeply today to hear that Robin Williams appears to have taken his own life. He was a brilliant, creative mind and a voice for humanity.
I've seen a lot of tributes to him over the past hour or so. Many people have posted clips of his work, quotes, and favorite memories. That's great; it's how we honor someone. But, somehow I feel like we're missing the point.
The point is . . . it's not fucking funny.
EDIT: I am not saying that people are making fun of Robin Williams' death. I am saying that some (not all) people are ignoring the cause of it.
Reports have it that Mr. Williams suffered from depression and possible drug/alcohol abuse. I've also read that he had bipolar disorder. Regardless, what plagued him was lethal, and it plagues so many other human beings acro

Washburn Tech, Letter of Intent Signing DayHey everyone! This journal is for the big day of my under-aged life... Signing Day for my Letter of Intent into Washburn Tech, a tech college in which I will be taking Computer Repairs and Networking as my class in this. The funny thing is that they actually did a live video feed of the whole thing (This is when we sign a paper, saying we agree to take the class we signed up for). Though, I was one of the very first people to sign up, so you don't have to watch the WHOLE video just to see me sign a piece of paper to get into Washburn Tech XD I'll post a video here that will show the event, and you can find me rather easily... I'm the guy with the shaggy blonde hair, glasses, bright red shirt and a look like I wanna either crawl in a hole and die or kill someone XD (It's just my natural expression when in public) You'll see me and lots of other soon-to-be students at the 2 minute and 53 second mark.Washburn Tech, Letter of Intent Signing Day6 months ago in Personal More Like This

10 Years. (and one day)Yesterday was Thanksgiving holiday. It was also November 22.10 Years. (and one day)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For most, just another day of family, food, and football.
For me, it was also something more. An anniversary. Ten years ago, November 22, 2002, a message board was founded.
It was founded out of the rubble of a failing forum about an overhyped, underwhelming video game on the Nintendo Gamecube. Founded by essentially, a group of about 10-20 or so teenagers (the youngest members being more around 10 or 11 and the oldest being around 19 to 21) who wanted a forum without the "moderator corruption", without the rules and restrictions of the old.
Basically we were entitled dumbass brats who wanted to do whatever we wanted. And so we did. And so a little forum called the McCloud Space Station was formed. I was 13 at the time, and no other community would shape me like it did. We had a forum-wide Role Play (led by the wonderful writer of Starfox fanfictions, RingShadow), which eventually just devolved into a regular RP forum with sm
