First introduced by Marvel in 1963, The Avengers was Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s superheroic response to the success of DC Comics’ Justice League of America.
In the original comic the founders of the superhero team were Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Ant–Man, and The Wasp who came together to defeat the evil god Loki. The 2012 live–action Avengers movie loosely based on Marvel

I feel like I know Philippines' history well, but I don't know Korea's as much. I think so many people with OC/Canon focus way more on their OC's side of history and I think it's important to know both sides! I know South Korea's life didn't revolve around Philippines all the time and I want to know heaps of what he and North Korea have been through prior to the Korean War itself!
So I kinda got into reading information about Korea in World War Two, and I think I have some ideas about the portrayal of North and South Korea respectively during those years.
I'm just gonna copy and paste what I noted Kiki, lmao:
omg though, about Korea - I was reading about how in WW2, Korea was dominated by Japan - most people in APH fandom know that, but there was an exile government of Korea set up and was based in Shanghai, China. It was this government that also worked hard on trying to liberate Korea from Japanese rule, and it was this government that made t

So it's better to try and become more open-minded in your youth, because otherwise you risk turning into a stubborn person who refuses other's opinions/perspectives/desire to help with constructive critique/etc.
So instead of bitching out at someone who criticises you, even when they may not have sounded as nice as they could have been, try and think more about their point of view. You don't even have to agree, but don't just run away from it or whatever. With clear bashing comments, just hide them. You have no obligation to answer to them. But when someone is actually trying to give you a thoughtful opinion on something of yours, even when you don't agree, at least try to meet halfway with them. Perhaps you two would both end up elaborating more on your respective points of view and just like t

Jude's JournalHe wasn't quiet sure when he started to hate noise. The level of sound, the eco of vibrations that left his ears ringing, and the uncomfortable feeling of claustrophobia that swept through his body when the noise hit a volume he could no longer bare. He supposed, he just woke up one day, and his ears decided to just say 'fuck this shit.' It was an irrational sort of reasoning, but he liked to think it was a better reasoning then sitting in his room all day and night where the only sound he heard was the constant buzz of the laptop's screen, the soft hum of the inter workings, and the near constant clack, clack of finger tips hitting the keyboard that was only broken by the occasional click, click of the mouse. By the time he'd noticed the new development, though, it was too late. Jude just couldn't stand being in a crowded place anymore. Hell, sometimes, the young man couldn't bring himself to leave his room with out the dreaded sensation of overwhelming dread. Dread for the noise humaJude's Journal in Personal More Like This
Night's JournalThis is the first day off the streets since Mother and Father died. I'm not sure how I feel about being locked up in this place. Everything is so gray and loud. Children are always running around during the day, screaming like heathens and chasing each other. This game, Tag, perplexes me. The first time I heard a girls scream from the play room, I thought she was in trouble. Needless to say, I was very confused when I rushed in expecting to see one of the older boys picking on her, only to find the girl laughing as she danced out of range of the small hand reaching out to touch her.Night's Journal in Personal More Like This

Night's JournalWomen. He didn't get them. They were so soft, delicate, and 100% insane in his eyes. Yoru had come to the conclusion that women didn't know what they really wanted. They acted tough, yet they wanted to be treated like flowers. Except, if you treated them like something that needed constant care and affection, they can and will nuder you with a rusty, old spoon. So why did men find them so entertaining?Night's Journal in Personal More Like This
Beyond a good fuck, women were such a hassle. They were demanding, always expecting things from you: money, love, attention, gifts. They were clingy, always got to hold onto some body part: the hand, arm, neck. It was all really tiring to keep up with. To Yoru, 'woman' was just a other hole for him to stick his dick in and relieve himself of unwanted pressure in the lower region. Women were toys. Good only while new, and only to play with until you have lost interest in them. Use, then throw away.
So, it was quiet a surprise when Yoru, as Night, fell in love with one. Fuck....

Her clothes weren't very extravagant, but plain and dirty. Her hair wasn't silky nor did it shine, rather the woman's dark brown hair laid matted and limp against her head, like she couldn't afford a brush. Even her body type was rather average with her small boobs and hardly there figure, but when she smiled she lit up with an unnatural glow and her laugh made all the people around her feel like the world was a better place with her in it. With her child like personality, she could make everyone forget the harshness of the world. The people in town enjoyed the days she came out.

Skiler's JournalOnce a long time ago, when I still had eyes, I could only see beauty in the world around me. Even though I was created a clone from the DNA of two sisters, I still thought myself alive. I may not have been born of a mother and a father, and I may not have been accepted by the sisters whom I shared my blood with, but I felt very alive. I could feel like any other, I could see, smell, taste, even touch like every human around me. I didn't understand why they hated me. It wasn't until my memories began to escape me that I realized why I was so hated. I was a symbol of the blood the two sisters shared. Made from the curiosity of the eldest who refused to believe they were related in anyway, and the youngest refused to believe I existed in the first place. The youngest sister just refused to see me. However, despite their short coming, I tried hard not to hate them. Even though they kept me hidden like a dirty secret, I only pitied them.

ImprovementOver the years, many people have asked me for how long I've been drawing. While it's true that I started drawing as soon as I was able to hold a pencil, I was never that serious about it. In a sense, you can ask yourself if I was any serious on art altogether. Because, in the end, all kids draw. I think most people can remember making drawings in grade school. Because it's something kids do naturally. Depicting the world around them with images. The beautiful thing is that kids have no fear. They just draw whatever they like, and are usually happy with it. It isn't until the age of 10 or 12, that the outside world suddenly expects you to be either good at something, or stop doing it. It's at that age that we become self cautious about drawing. And therefore it's around that age many kids eventually stop drawing.Improvement in Deviant Events More Like This

EncouragementWhen I started out on DeviantArt, I used to be one of those artists that thought I could never do art properly.Encouragement in Deviant Events More Like This
I'll start saying that I spend most of my childhood getting only little encouragement.
My parents were, like many other parents, convinced that art wasn't that much of a useful skill since it's nearly impossible to earn money with -- and would've liked it if I spend my time doing something more useful instead. At school I was that pathetic kid without friends. Creative, yet very introverted. The one that gets bullied in the schoolyard. Needless to say; it was rare to find people saying something nice about me, and it was even more rare to find someone actually encouraging me.
Back then, I used to believe that I was alone. I initially signed up to DeviantArt to find people with similar interests. But it happened to change my mind along the way. When I came into contact with other artists, I came to realize that there were in fact many people just like me. People th

However, with the current amount of watchers and messages I get on a daily basis, I realize this will be hard to keep track of. Let alone picking just a one from that huge group of people.

Silver liningI decided to write a journal as a tiny bit of a follow up on my health situation,Silver lining in Deviant Events More Like This
as a lot of people have been concerned about me in the past few weeks, and have been asking me how I was.
Up until now, there honestly haven't been a lot of updates.
The situation was pretty much the same. I've gotten new medication for the migraines. It took another few days off the next attack, but unfortunately also came with very bad and serious side effects that made me very sick and impacted my life greatly. Yes, I've been absent at times. And yes, I've been agitated at times --more than I'd usually be. Though some of those trolls could probably even drive a sane person to madness.

The truth is; I'm doing badly. Very badly.
As some of you know I've already been having serious health problems for a while.

My car was totally damaged and I was taken to the hospital for a checkup because my neck felt a bit weird. Initially everything was fine, I thought. The test proved no bones where broken. The insurance company paid up for my car (luckily -- it was very expensive). And I was allowed to go home. I did feel sick for the first few days after the accident, but I thought of it as stress, took a few aspirins, and went back to work the next Monday after that.
The first days at work were horrible. My head hurts, I felt dizzy and had a hard time focusing on my work. But again; I thought it was ju

And what's better than to use DeviantArt's mention function to let them know you care about them or admire them? Let's spread the happiness!
Tag the people that you admire
I will give away 300 points to people that comment here, to 3 people. 100 points per person.
You'll build lottery points for every person that you tag. The more, the better!
Here are my tags:
The many people that are either my real life friends, or the people that I came to know over the internet (Deviantart & forums) over the years.
Either way, thanks for your continuous support!
Do's and don'ts for flawless interactionNot much to say about this.Do's and don'ts for flawless interaction in Deviant Events More Like This
Just some basic tips and tricks for flawless interaction on DeviantArt
Watch people when you honestly find them interesting.
Watch your friends, even if they don't have amazing art. It helps you stay updated with their progress.
Watch groups. They'll offer you a fine selection of art you're interested in, and will help you discover new (interesting) artists.
Check the faves of people you watch. As you like their work, you might have similar tastes in art. Checking their faves might help you find cool art.
Recommend art from people that you watch for a Daily Deviation (if good art, of course).
Uncheck all boxes when watching. There's nothing more disappointing than an empty watch.
Being happy with your artI've noticed lately, that there's this emotion that leaves people overwhelmed with the massive amount of good art in the community, thinking that they can never become as good or popular as those others. So sad, because skill or popularity in itself shouldn't be the major goal of an art community. I think many people who start out here get so overwhelmed that they forget what it's actually about.Being happy with your art in Deviant Events More Like This
Many people out here, sign up to DeviantArt (or any internet art community) in order to publish their work on the internet. They've probably looked around for a while already. They saw those amazing artists that had millions of pageviews, and secretly hoped that by putting their art on the internet, they would be able to do the same. To become madly popular -- a community icon.
Well, sorry to burst your bubble; but it's probably not gonna happen. And if it's gonna happen; it's not going to be soon.
According to DeviantArt, the website has over 31 million

Is anything working right now? :IThere seems to be a glitch that won't let a majority of my watchers get notified of my updates. I noticed this after posting and realizing there is significantly reduced traffic. I logged into my other account :iconknites: and sure enough, the newest update did not appear in the other account's inbox. Some people have reported receiving the update, while many others reported not receiving it. I decided to make sure and made a poll asking people if they received the lasted drawing in their inbox, and guess what? There's another glitch affecting the polls so most people aren't getting notified of the poll either... =_= Or at least the newest poll is not showing up in my other account either. I wonder if people will even see this journal?Is anything working right now? :I in Personal More Like This
I already reported the bug, but if people can see this journal, I'm curious if anyone is experiencing similar problems? I remember years back there was a bug that only affected people with a certain amount of watchers which means some ar

I will be in the Artist Alley at table number #233 which is right by the entrance!
I'll be selling my prints as usual
Come by and hang out! Some people have told me online that they were too shy to talk to me in person. I love to make new friends at cons so don't be shy!
As I've mentioned in my last post, Fanime has prohibited me from selling my 1000 Words book because it was professionally published. Fanime is the only convention that has such a weird rule without providing a Small Press option for artists with published works. Unfortunately, that means if you were hoping to get a copy of the book this year, it won't be at Fanime. However, I will also be at Anime Expo and Kintoki-con with all the books :
In case you didn't know...I was really happy to see people discussing and helping each other understand SOPA and PIPA in the journal comments yesterday. I noticed some comments that asked the same things so here's some quick information:In case you didn't know... in Personal More Like This
If you don't know what SOPA does, dA has actually provided a great journal explaining the bill and the consequences http://hq.deviantart.com/journal/Join-a-SOPA-and-PIPA-debate-280023798?utm_source=deviantart&utm_medium=header&utm_campaignebateSOPA_011712 and this website has a lot of information on how to protest against it http://americancensorship.org/ The fight is not over yet!
No, my journal and icon wasn't really censored. It's to show what would happen if the bill became law.
This one is a bit annoying. Quite a few people were saying "People, stop jumping on bandwagons to be cool!" Or "Why is everyone talking about it now instead of when it first came out? You only care because it's a trend now? I new about it way back in 2011." Um, excuse me, but please don't live in
Thank You!Thank you guys so much for the deviousness award! But it's really not just this award, thank you all for the support through out the years.Thank You! in Personal More Like This
I can honestly say that I grew up with this community and everyone here has taught me so much, and not just about art, but also on how to be a person. When I first got this account at the age of 12, I could have never imagined how much it has shaped my life and career. It sounds cliche but I probably wouldn't have became an artist if it hadn't been for everyone here on deviantART. Through all of the ups and downs in life, the community has always been the support and inspiration that kept me going.
I hope to give back as much as everyone has given me. I will continue to create more comics, tutorials and art in the future. I will never stop, and I have you all to thank for that.
So truly, thank you!
Fisheye Placebo ImagesI saw this awesome Fisheye Placebo music video by Linda Neumann and realized that it would probably be easier for music video editors and language translators to have a textless version of all of the panels so here it is https://www.dropbox.com/sh/84jcondrsylfh82/pVEbp8d1QqFisheye Placebo Images in Personal More Like This
Feel free to download the images for any class projects, music videos, translations, etc. Please credit and remember that I drew these for everyone to read for free, so do not try to sell or profit from my work in anyway. If I find people charging others for translated versions of this story, or selling copies of my work, I will be very angry ):
That aside, check out the cool video! She did a wonderful job editing everything
MemoriesI've been in China for almost a week now, and all the memories I have of this place is flooding back. Unfortunately, many of those memories are quite negative. A lot of people commented on my last journal asking why my stepmom and half brother had tried to kill me. It's not a secret and I'm in a weird mood right now so I'll retell the story.Memories in Personal More Like This
I last visited China almost five years ago. I was unfortunate enough to be stranded at the LAX airport for two days. During that time, I met another girl my age who was also returning to China to visit family. We talked for a long time and I found out her parents are also divorced like mine. She told me how her stepmom would regularly burn her with cigarette buds. I was horrified but I felt lucky that my stepmom is kind to me. I told her I was lucky to have a nice stepmom. I had never been so wrong.
When I first arrived, my stepmom greeted me kindly, and we talked, joked, and hung out like a regular family would. But her mask was quickly cracking a

I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

I feel kind of bad that at all the big conventions like AX or Fanime, I am always so busy that I don't actually get to have a real conversation with anyone, but at a small con like Kintoki, I really get to talk and know people so if you're in the Sacramento, California area this weekend, come by my booth and hang out! And I was thinking that we could all get dinner together on either Saturday or Sunday night (July 27th/28th) after the hall closes I got to have dinner with some friends I met at AX and it was a lot of fun. I hope to meet and hang out with lots of new friends at Kintoki-con as well!
Also, if your interested in creating digital artworks like this one, or just how to be involved in the community, I will be host hosting a Digital Illustration panel with Kaze-Hime and Long Vo this Saturday and an Anime, Art, and Activism panel this Sunday I will also be in the Dealers Hall area the re
