No doubt many of you have learned of the most recent stories of racism regarding Canadian pop brat Justin Bieber for using the N-word not once, but twice !!.
He is such an unbelievable prat, he really, really is.
The latest story about the immature git is him using the N-word several times in a song that was originally ment to be called 'There's one less lonely girl', but Justin decided it would be funny to go racist and change it to 'There's one less lonely N****r'.
The lyrics go like this -
One less lonely N*****r,
One less lonely N*****r,
One less lonely N*****r,
There's gonna be one
If I kill you, I;ll be part of
the KKK [Ku Klux Klan],
and there'll be one less
lonely N****r .
There'll be one less lonely N****r.
In fact, here's the video of him actually singing those very lyrics.
It's been said he has apologized, but I don't think he means it. Like anyone else in the world, his capable of lying through his teeth. In fact

Who shrunk my ruddy Tardis ???? !!!!:iconDoctorWhoOne: Ola Dudes,Who shrunk my ruddy Tardis ???? !!!! in Personal More Like This
Seems the Tardis is going to get shrunk in an upcoming episode of Doctor Who - Series 8.
Shown on the right is a 4ft model of the Police Box prop, which is a perfect replica of the modern Police Box prop used during filming outside the Doctor's Tardis, but no doubt you'll easily notice the windows are not entirely the same as the full size prop, even the lamp on the roof looks somewhat different.
Course, if you know your classic Doctor Who, then you'll remember that the Tardis has shrunk before, in the 4th Doctor adventure 'Logopolis' which saw a much smaller prop appear as the shrunken Tardis.

He revealed the show’s creator Doug Naylor is currently penning the Smeghead’s upcoming adventures in time, space, alternative universes and possibly even hallucinogenic realities. And it seems it’s not just the fans that are eager to know more. Speaking to the press he said:
“Doug Naylor is writing as we speak. He told me off for ringing him up the other day and asked about it.”

The Enduring Enigma of CollageFebruary 21, 2013/by techgnoticThe Enduring Enigma of Collage in Art Features More Like This
Collage is one of those art forms that immediately sets off heated debate about our most fundamental ideas and visceral feelings about the very essence of art itself.
Turn of the century troublemakers Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso began enhancing their paintings with glued on bits of cut out fabric and other materials, thus neatly blurring the line between the art categories of painting and sculpture. They shifted the emphasis or “meaning” of their painted images beyond an attempted interpretation of the painted “text” to thinking about the artists’ “process” – something wholly separate from the paintings themselves.
And with that a whole new Rubic’s Cube of basic questio

Street photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson called it the “decisive moment”— the captured instant when all the photograph’s elements come together to tell a story in a way a text narrative of thousands of words could never begin to. It is what hooks people, both practitioners and advocate-devotees, on the art form. It is uniquely completely immersive in life— step out into the streets— in which the moment of artistic epiphany can never be guessed at until it suddenly happens. When it is properly mastered, it is as pure as the dawn of each new day, as true as the living organism of a teeming street scene catching a breath as one.

Bye bye Spain, hello England ~Soo... ~ as the title says. I won't be going to Spain with my sister. It's not that I wouldn't had want to but it's because of few things. I went to hospital yesterday to get tetanus shot (in Finland it's totally free and you need to take it in every 10 years. I have got it 1998 last time so lal laa ~ :'D) but while I was there I kept asking few things about the shots from nurse what I would need to Spain. She said I only would need 3 shots of A and B hepatitis and I should have 2 shots before I leave to Spain and I only could take 1 shot per month and one shot costs 50€ (67USD). I could have take first shot in January, second in February and then the third one after 6 months from the first shot but because my sis and I probably would have go to Spain in April, it would have get too tight for me to try to get the money to a pass (65€ / 87USD), 2-3 shots (100-150€ / 134-201USD) and then flying ticket money (about 250€ / 335USD) and then some money to spend there.

Life sucks at the momentIn my case it has been sucking some weeks now. I haven't been able to sleep much in my nights because I just haven't been able to fall asleep so because of it I have been staying awake to 5-9am, go to sleep and woke up around 2-3pm so I haven't got that much sleep and it's a bad thing in my case if I can't sleep about 10-12 hours per night. Then last night I got myself to bed around 11:30pm because I was so freaking tired, only to wake up 30 min later when a group of fucking drunk men were yelling outside on the yard as loud as they could; "EEEE!!! OOOO!!!" and they kept doing that some time before they left. But I swear, if I would have had a gun and they wouldn't had left, they wouldn't be on this planet anymore. When I'm tried and haven't been able to sleep much in weeks, it doesn't take much to get me super angry (though when I get angry I say things what I don't mean).Life sucks at the moment in Personal More Like This

What a great week!Last week's Tuesday I took my laptop to fixer in near by city with my mom and because installing Vista in my laptop again took so many hours (6.5 hours) mom and I went to spend that time to my grandmother's (mom's mom) place. We had good time there and grandmother got some company as well because I feel she's kind of lonely. When we left and we were already at the parking area, she called my mom and asked me to go see her. I went back to her and she asked when my birthday is and I told her I already had them. She gave me 50 euros (63USD) and then she gave me another 50 euros saying; "Give this to your sister when you see her." I normally don't hug peoples but in this case I hugged her and thanked her so much. After all that much money was so very welcome because I really need to buy new shoes because my current ones aren't good to my feet anymore. Wearing them and walking with them hurts my feet so much... Oh, I also got my new very beautiful and antique looking table lamp that day whaWhat a great week! in Personal More Like This

FRUIT BOWL COMICS IS NO LONGER ONLINE (update!)With much deliberation between Cherries and I, we decided not to renew our subscription for the website, Fruit Bowl Comics. Honestly, neither of us could maintain it together. We're both too busy and I can't do anything in web design and it wasn't fair to make Cherries do all the hard work of website upkeep. Plus, honestly, I don't think it was being utilized as it should have been. I wasn't utilizing it and I don't think anyone really visited it. So this is for the best I'm thinking for now.

CONS AND SOME SUCH NONSENSEAlright. I've made list of priorities for my comics and art so I could participate in as many cons possible for 2015 (since I know I won't be able to for this year) but I've discovered that I'm already falling behind and that, seriously, ticks me off! I've been trying really hard to stay caught up but I'm wondering if I'm putting too much on my plate and if my expectations are too high. Or I'm just being a lot more lazy than I anticipated even for myself. It's hard to get as much work done as I want when I'm working a real job, taking care of a household, having time to relax and BE lazy, and then also do all my artwork as well. I'm terrible at scheduling though I love making lists and setting goals.

Recently, Funimation issued a statement in regards to fan art and fan works. (here) So... I'm kind of at a loss here. While I have no intention on stopping Sky Avenue, I'm probably going to reconsider printing it. I don't use any particular DBZ logos or anything like that, and I think I stylize the characters I do use enough so that they're not like the trademark images but at the same time, I seriously do not want to get into any kind of hot water.
I've been reading the forums where that article was posted and a lot of people state that fan art is still ok but it cannot have any kind of trade logos in it. But what is considered a trade logo? It's very complicated and perhaps I'm not reading i

You guys make working on this comic completely worth it in every way. I'm excited to announce that I have 3 pages drawn for the revamp of book 1 (as some of you know, I decided to redo the first 70ish pages of SA for print) and Cherries and I both agree these pages are looking stellar. Much closer to my current style and the plot is more fluid and planned.

Work has been a total nightmare as of late. I don't want to bore you with details but I'm about at my wits end of that place. This new store manager of ours is treating me like some common know-nothing newb and it's really getting my goat. I had a breakdown on my favorite manager a few days ago when the new store manager took a newer, less experienced girl on tour to another store when she didn't even ask if I or another seasoned associate wanted to go. It's like she's doing everything in her power to prove to me that I mean very little to her or to the company. What's worse is the store they went to is hiring and the guy basically said that he was totally willing to pay his associates $15 an hour rather than the $11 an hour I make right

So with 2014 being so darn close, I thought I'd mention what some goals I'm having for the year while I'm here. My biggest goal is to have book 1 of Sky Avenue and book 2 of Frame by Frame completed. That said, I'm also hoping to have those three printed. I'm planning on going to several conventions in 2015 (after I save up a bunch) so having a few books printed would be ideal.
I've got other comics in mind but I'm not sure where I'm going to be with them during that time. I have ideas but no set goals for those. We'll see how quickly I can finish up Sky Avenue and book 2 of Frame by Frame in that time. I know I'm cruising right now while on this break.
Another thing I'm planning on doing is getting my website back up and running and posting/creating more artwork. Famous last words I know but I'm really trying to make this goal a reality.

With my back being so wonky, it's hard to sit up for long stretches of time without going into convulsions of massive pain so I'm uploading all my art programs onto my husband's laptop so he can use my desktop while I'm broken. This means I can lay in bed and work without as much pain.
However, doing this takes time so I'm not entirely sure when I'll have the pages up and ready. I work tomorrow and have Tuesday off so if the worse happens, I'll post them on Tuesday.
And as a heads up, I may be opening commissions during the month of September through the beginning of October. With Cherries' visit being almost 2 months away, I'm hoping to save up some funds or else we'll have to cancel the entire thing (Something I really don't want to do). But I'll let everyone know more details on that as they happen.

This one's a LONG one and takes place at a high school. It was English class and everything around me became like some kind of video game. Whenever the teacher talked, you'd see a dialogue box pop up, and she lips the words she's saying with no sound coming out of her mouth. She asks someone to volunteer to take a few books back to the library and follow a few instructions on a piece of paper. I turn out to be the only one to volunteer and when she hands me the stuff, she tells me "good luck". I got a little confused as to why she tells me "good luck" but whatever.
How I had to get to the library was from a hatch at the end of the hallway. After opening the hatch, you climb down this rope ladder, and you're in the library. In the library, I go to look at the one piece of paper with the instructions and it turned out to be some riddle/puzzle. I hand the books to the librarian, and then start to follow what the instructions tell me. Apparently I had to find

Anyway, so quite a bit of you on this site, and a couple from Fur Affinity wanted me to share some dream stories, and a few parts of the werehyena story. So here's what happens after this part http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lkk0pUoWqwM of the werehyena story:
(The 2 guys that were beating up my friend continued running until they reached a forest area not too far outside the city).
Guy#1: "*Pant* *Pant*...Did we lose her?"
Guy#2: "Stay quiet, man."
(You hear hyena-like laughter coming closer, then you see me in my wereyena form coming and stop at a certain area of the forest, meaning that I have picked up a scent).
Guy#1: "Aww, sh*t man!" (They duck behind some bushes).

This one's about that I'm playing a game where your character is some random character's head, and the enemy is a flying naked guy that has a trail of explosions behind him. As the enemy whizzes by, the Jaws music is playing in the background, with the flying naked guy singing along with the song in an odd way. The layout of the gaming field consists of heads of famous characters from all over TV in the 90s, which act as obstacles/walls that you have to tunnel your way through. And one of the special abilities of your character is to make yourself bigger, clearing a better path for yourself. Once the Jaws music becomes intense, the flying naked guy becomes a giant head that looks like the Silver Surfer's and chases you down.
Okay, just when I thought that things have been toning down at school, more tests and exams get thrown

This one's about that I'm at some anime convention with friends who are anime characters. One was Aerith from Final Fantasy 7 who had the biggest room in the hotel we stayed at. My room suited my personality but was as big as my own room at home. Some hot boy's (not sure which anime character it was nor what he looked like) room had an interesting room that suited him. He was already in some relationship but I started to get that jealous feeling and wanted to plot a little something to get him to go out with me instead of his current girlfriend (which is the one that invited me). Some other character's room looked like a kitchen, and some others room looked like my one cousin's room with a lot of pets in tanks. Outside of the convention area, there's a playground meant for teens and adults that's by a river. These girls get really hyper on the playground and almost kill everybody (the whole playground equipment apparently wasn't stable because

How To Get Your Writing SeenWe all know that (as writers) pageviews can be hard to come by. They're not everything, no, but they do open the doors for feedback. On our recent poll, 28% of you admitted lack of views on your work seriously concerns you, whilst a chunky 62% of you answered that sometimes, it concerns you. There was a rather relaxed 10% that answered no, but you still might find the following useful!How To Get Your Writing Seen in Personal More Like This

Well, us admins have been huddling around thinking up some handy tips and advice! None of them are strictly right or wrong, guaranteeing writing fame, but they're worth a try perhaps.
Appropriate Search Tags
Tag your writing with as many appropriate search terms as you can think of. This will help readers find your work. For example, you're writing a Star Wars story, so tag "Star Wars, fan-fiction, sci-fi..." and perhaps the names of characters, the title etc etc

For those of you who do not know me, I am an author here on DA. I am also a Human Being, and one who isn't afraid of writing about things that so many people won't because they're afraid of being banned from DA or afraid of what people will think of them. And if you are one of those people, I want you to know that I have nothing against you. Like every Human Being I have a sexual side and I'm not afraid to say that I embrace it. The sad part however is so many people are afraid to admit that they have a sexual side to themselves as well.

White knightsI haven't spend much time on my computer last weekend, but enough to see that DeviantArt was kept busy by a troll that apparently did really well for as much as trolls can 'do well' on the internet. A little over 4000 pageviews in just 4 days the account is online proved not only the artists involved in the matter took offense... but apparently a lot of other DeviantArt members as well. Even those that seemed (to me at least) totally uninvolved with the troll or the particular type of art.White knights in Deviant Events More Like This
For those that wonder about the issue; It's about Foxbun's rather cynical joke about the 'closed species' matter. (I'm usually against name calling here. But this account has intentionally created for its goal. It has been all over the site already and would've been in the comments within 10 minutes, even without me mentioning here.

After careful consideration, I decided to go on with the feature for points plan.
The general idea is to give beginning artists the chance to have their artwork featured on my front page. This might seem pointless to some, especially since there are busy services out there (like dAhub) that give you points for faving and watching artists. But hold on, it might just be worth it for you. With services like dAhub there's no guarantee your watchers will eventually keep active, or even like your work. In contrary to that kind of service, my feature won't give you points for watching or faving. Any person that watches you, will do so out of
Personal updateIt's been a while... But hey, here we go.Personal update in Art Features More Like This
I've been having a break for the last few months, and for a good reason -- a lot of shit happened. The break gave me a lot of time to think about stuff. During that time I've seriously considered not coming back at all. But the friendly but concerned messages that I received from those that were still following me kinda persuade me to keep things updated -- at least once in a while.
I've most spend the last few weeks creating stuff in solitude. I haven't spend much time on social media, but made lots of sketches, speed paints, and concepts and chapters for my story. And I have to admit, I kinda came to like that silence. Social media --any kind of social media, DA included-- is like a black hole. It's easy to lose time that could've better spend creating. It's easy to lose focus. And it's easy to become numb by the continuous chatter. Because on the internet every person has an opinion on everyone and their moms, and not seeing the face of the
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

Of course, we all knew that the internet could be a very nasty place. It has been a nasty place before and pretty much every single one of us knew that there places out there that are better be avoided when you're a sensitive person (or a normal human being with feelings -- however you want to call it). What the recent issue confronted us with, however, that as artists we aren't safe either. I can remember the earlier internet raids. The victims were either big organisat
How to: ColorAs a follow up of my "How to: Anatomy" journal that was received so well by the community, I will continue this series with a how to on color.How to: Color in Art Features More Like This
Color is considered to be one of the hardest subjects when it comes to art. Most beginners (and even some advanced artists) struggle to get the colors of their work right. I myself do as well. This journal is by no means a full coverage on how to color. It will however be a good list of resources to get you started on this hard subject.
A few things to get started
There are a few things to color
There's hue and value. Hue determines what place in the color spectrum the color is in (red, green, blue.. etc). Value determines how dark or light a color is. In order to understand colors, you have to know how to influence and work with both of them.

Don't worry about your age. Do not get discouraged by those that are younger than you and better. Some people start art when they are 6 years old and are prodigy's at age 16, others make a rather late or slow start. It doesn't matter if you're 10 or 80 years old. You're never too old to learn something new, and you're never too old to do something you enjoy.
Everybody has potential. Even the greatest masters in art started out as beginners. It just takes a lot of time and persistence.
Don't be afraid to fail. Most masters have failed more times than any beginner even tried.
We only see the best from other people, and compare it with our own average. For every amazing painting a good artist puts online, he probably made 100 failed sketches. Sketches you'll never see and you'll never know o

It was a day like any other, and I was just surfing DeviantArt, browsing the many deviations in my inbox. While I did so, my eye wandered to something that was called an 'tutorial on manga anatomy'. As usual, I was curious about the content. And as the preview image was pretty small, I wanted to check this out. It seems like this girl, let's name her Abbey (it's not her real name, but I think calling her 'that girl' is so damn confusing) had made a tutorial on male manga anatomy. Nothing wrong with that, you'd say. But I've been following Abbey for a while already. I originally met her in the forums, asking for feedback on one of her fanart drawings. Mostly anatomy related stuff. I gave her some tips. We talked a bit. And I followed her soon after, as I thought her art looked pretty promising altogether.
Now, I didn't know Abbey in real life. But she was a beginning artist, nowhere towards a level
Will you be my friend?The funny thing about people knowing you, is that many people want to be your friend.Will you be my friend? in Deviant Events More Like This
"Will you be my friend?" is one those questions I get the most.
It's also one the questions I have to answer with a negative answer the most, because I don't like lying to people.
Like I've told in some of my earlier journals, my life didn't overflow with friendship nor popularity when I was younger. It was quite the contrary. I wasn't anything near popular, to the point that most people didn't even want to have anything to do with me. As the kid that got bullied, the few that dared to get close to me, more or less put their social status in the group at stake by even talking to me. And as a result, I guess I valued their friendship a lot. After all; I knew what they risked.
Coming from that sort of situation, friendship has always been a very important but at the same time mysterious matter to me. Something not be
