Titillation vs. SexismBoobs.Titillation vs. Sexism in Personal More Like This
Guys are fascinated by them.
Through single-digit ages, they find the very concept of them hilarious, and when puberty kicks in the mere thought of lady-lumps generally causes some movement in the trouser department. These weak-willed creatures will follow them anywhere and they will do almost anything if it means simply being permitted to gaze upon them for a few moments more.
The entertainment industries, from the big movie makers to the lowly art whores (like me) know this, and have played upon it for years in order to separate males from their money. As a result, mass media is awash with the female form in all manner of provocative poses and dress.
Many women are fed up with this, but is the whole thing “sexist”?
Well, it’s impossible and indeed wrong to say a whole industry is one thing or another. Ultimately it’s all one, big, dumb organism that simply moves with the cultural winds. It perpetuates what sustains it. It’s only when you break it
OCs- How to make it memorableHi, and welcome to a opinion related journal created by yours truly , Zhoulia.OCs- How to make it memorable in Personal More Like This
When it comes to creating a Original character , Here we go.
First off, let us make it clear that adding a huge-load of details are not going to make people remember your character.
Unless you market it correctly. But people seeing a visual of the character and being able to describe it are two different things. If you do not order a bunch of commissions, draw the character all the time or have extremly devoted fans who draw fanart off it. Chances is that people will simply forget them. This is my problem..
I am going to use my own OC as an example, not because it is great but because people seem to like her.
Why is she popular? Well first off she is created to be easy on the eye.
Also it is made by 8 - 10 year old me, so details was not my thing back then.
Anyhow ,s he has few details making her ideal to draw even for the laziest artist.
Also it helps that I commission

We all make art, and we struggle to become better and better and in the end say :
I CAN'T GET BETTER!!!
Well I can speak from experience and say, yes you can!
I am still growing and trying to improving and I was never good at coloring. But that is the point!
We all suck sometimes, and that's perfectly OK. Because we can get better, it exists within us.
I can't draw an artwork in under 15 min that is good, neither can I give good art advice.
But what I can give you is a chuckle.
Derp anime? Derp ....
The artwork above had OK coloring for being done with a mouse, but the facial expressions still makes me laugh.
Let us not forget the infamous artwork I was once so proud of..
AKA.. the doom boob
I made this artwork due to one of my characters back then and scored 217 favs.
I rarely get that now, either I was better back then. Or people didn't care abou
SOPA and the day Wikipedia went outyes by now you have probably heard about it quite a bit, especially since Wikipedia decided to go blackout for a day in protest : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_PageSOPA and the day Wikipedia went out in Personal More Like This
But the fact is, it's a VERY dangerous bill. If it passes, Internet won't be the same.... Entire sites could be blocked on the mere suspicion of hosting content that use copyrighted elements, such as a music in a video clip for example. Needless to say you could kiss Youtube goodbye.
and you can bet a lot of big companies would see that as a BIG precedent and that would only become the first step of many restrictive laws to come. It's not really about copyright protection here. It's about liberty. Internet should remain free period, it's one of the latest space of genuine liberty that remains.
It's great to see that bill is meeting huge resistance and is running into serious troubles but you can bet that the people behind it won't relent their assault.
So what you can do ? It's easy : speak about i

Victim websites are BACK ONLINE!!I normally should edit my existing entries, but sadly, Free Premium Membership day is over, so I have to make a new one instead.Victim websites are BACK ONLINE!! in Personal More Like This
Anyway, it looks like http://www.justice.gov/ & http://www.fbi.gov/ are back online!! Anonymous, check your victims and make sure they stay offline!! We cannot afford to lose this war, kill them (their files, server systems, work computers, etc..) until they finally submit and bow down to you!!
I'm sure the other victim sites will recover as well, to all of us who oppose SOPA, show us all of our strength, unleash your wrath like a Wrath of God! Show No Mercy, kill them all until the bill is finished! Bring Smith to submission and even until he resigns from political office! Get your protest powers out, if the people of "Occupy Wall Street" can organize the infamous protest last year, I'm sure you can too!
Don't want to say more, but you know what to do to speed up the process!

Like I always say....time flies when you're doing artworks.......and waiting for future Nintendo games! Not sure what else to say about this...
Thanks everyone for the supporting this little "Shy Guy" throughout the years! Shy Guy hugs and free donuts for all! [Huggle!][Tight Hug][Cuddling up with someone close...][Glomp!]

Shotacon: Good or Bad?Shotacon and Lolicon are both about children in romantic or sexual situations. Now it's not always sexual, the point of them is to be cute, not necessarily erotic.Shotacon: Good or Bad? in Personal More Like This
Now of course I made this journal entry to address my view on the issue. I am a proponent of them. The fact of the matter is these "children" are simply characters, fictional, and when it comes down to it they're nothing more than ink or graphite or pixels. That is to say they aren't really children, they're just a picture and an idea. Nobody is harmed, nobody is hurt, it may be gross (I find all sex gross though), but it's victimless.
All I heard as a counter from detractors is that it's "the idea" and "the spirit of it", which is complete and utter bullshit. There is no "spirit of it". The idea is that it's sexual depictions of children characters, not children. Children characters do not equal children. A child has skin, hair, blood, and physically exists. A child character does not.
It's as simple as that.
