Hell’s Kitchen in New York City was a pretty rough place
Like many areas of the city in the 1950s and 1960s, poverty gave way to hardship which in turn created crime. The New York of that time period would be unimaginable to people only familiar with today’s Disneyland–inspired Times Square. But back then things were tough.

The New Street Photographer's ManifestoFebruary 7, 2013/by techgnoticThe New Street Photographer's Manifesto in Art Features More Like This
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.

She's a talented author and artist and I wish she had less stresses. I want nothing but the best for Yoru. She has a good job, a fantastic husband creature and she is one of the most amazing women I have ever had the pleasure to meet online. If you're not familiar with the person I literally stayed on dA for (I was considering leaving before I moved to this account), I really do suggest you go meet her.

IMPORTANT TOOLS FOR DRAWINGWell, drawing traditionally.IMPORTANT TOOLS FOR DRAWING in Personal More Like This
Things I have learned that you need whilst drawing with pencil. Or perhaps only I need.. Either way, I'm sure this'll help people.
PENCIL. Don't try and draw a masterpiece with pen unless that is your one medium and you're awesome with it. I am one of the people who are not awesome with it. Pencil can be erased and therefore, is very important. You need pencil especially to plot out the pose and the proportions. Pencils are the most important thing.Eraser. ERASERS ARE GODSENDS. The amount of times I have messed up a drawing surely is close to millions. Erasers are the best!Sharpener for your pencil... I usually draw with a mechanical pencil but still, a non sharpened pencil sucks.RULER. DID ANYONE KNOW THAT RULERS ARE AMAZING? I got a 15cm or 5in one yesterday and *foams at the mouth* it's so helpful with proportions. Because you can measure them out. Like, for real.
PLEASE USE UNDERLINES AND RULERS!

Red-wing got chicken pox. That is both a good and a bad thing. 1 (good), she won't get it when she's older; 2 (bad), she got them at all; 3 (good), it gives me something interesting to write about; 4(bad) I am now paranoid, twitchy and nervous for reasons I will not disclose.

Truth About LiesThis is actually a little snippet from my real journal. I thought it was a good idea to get this out in the open.Truth About Lies in Personal More Like This
"Confession #2: I hate lies. I know your probably thinking, 'Well, Duh! Who doesn't?' But no, I HATE lies. Any lies. Even the tiniest little ones can make me want to kill people. In my world, lies are the deadliest sin. They are the only sin that can cover up any other sin, and they are the ones that are the easiest to use and the most readily available...And the most destructive. They tamper with justice on a regular basis and kill many innocent people! It's through lies that people are backstabbed, trust is broken, injustice is caused...Even the common courtesy lies are a terrible thing in my mind! Those make people make fools of themselves.
"That is why I am so blatantly honest all the time. And if no one asks my opinion, I usually don't give it. Because in my world almost any lie is worthy of death. This is also why I'm so wary of friends. Because typically from w

Umm.....3 years....or so...maybe...?
What does your username mean?
Taka is Japanese for Hawk, and Boushi means eye. (sorta...actually its me, but who cares.) Hawk-eye is my Teen Titans persona, and the persona I spend the most time in.
Describe yourself in three words.
Loyal, Honest, Shy.
Are you left or right handed?
Ambidextrous, but I usually draw with my right.
What was your first deviation?
Honestly, I didn't make this account. One of my friends did for me. So I don't remember what the first drawing was that she put up...It was probably horrible... >_<
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Drawings that reflect what I'm feeling or how I feel about certain things. It's usually the stuff that comes out the best. (I also like making stuff for other people because seeing their reactions makes me happy.)
It is About Time!Finally! After years and years of needing one, I finally got myself a new uniform! (Well, the leotard at least...) I was going to sew it myself, but then I thought, you know what, when the heck do I have time for that...?

But, I finally broke down and bought myself a new leotard. And it is SOOO much better than my last one! Haha! The old one was like 20 years old when I got it 10 years ago, and it was a couple sizes too big or something, because it was not tight in the least! Also, it was a really dark navy, this one is a nice toned royal blue. Much better. Plus, it fits on me like my own skin; I did a whole bunch of kicks and it didn't slip once. Amazing what a difference a dancer's leotard can make.

My Thoughts for the Day-Featuring:Chibi TitansBy now every Titans fan knows of the Teen Titans shorts that have been airing on the Cartoon Network for the past few months. They are a comidic take on the actuall Teen Titans, which, to many people's dismay, was taken off the air a few years ago. When the Titans were brought back in this new form, it brought with it a host of new and mixed feelings.My Thoughts for the Day-Featuring:Chibi Titans in Personal More Like This
The original Teen Titans show was, the way I've seen it, the perfect show. It had an air of seriousness and believability while still retaining a comidic and slapstick nature; this is a balance that's hard to master and rare in today's television programing.
The Teen Titans shorts that have been airing focuss mostly on comidy and sadly lack the seriousness that was attractive to the previous generation. From what I've seen, this is what most die-hard fans feel the shorts are lacking. The seriousness is what gave the audiance an emotional attatchment to the characters, which is an important element for a high quality program.

The ocean of white OC'sAt first i didn't want to make this journal because i thought "Hey, its not really any of my business"The ocean of white OC's in Personal More Like This
But i can voice my opinions. And if you can't really handle that... whelp. This is the internet after all.
So what my issue is... the giant ocean of completely white female OC's?
(I'm just talking about my fandom here, Young Justice/DC)
I have been around this fandom and people characters for about 8 months now,
And i've seen like...maybe 3 oc's of color?
Which is a shame if you ask me.
I go to people's pages where they have reffs of their characters and they're the same generic designs that i see everywhere.
Pale skin or a little tanned. Blue or green eyes. (Maybe another bizarre color)
Usually when i bring up these things to people i always get the comment back "but i make them white cause i'm white"
But thats not really realistic is it?
Young Justice itself has people of color in their stories. And when OC's are added its ...like i said... ocean of whites.

Tips to make an original characterBecause sometimes, things get overly done.Tips to make an original character in Personal More Like This
And i'm not saying thats all bad, classics can be fun.
But it can get a bit ...boring.
So here's a few tips by me (and suggested by some friends) to make your oc more original.
(And i'm also not saying that all my oc's are immune to this.)
The batman family is a batman army.
There's a shit ton of OC's out there that are part of the batman family.
Some make sense, but then there are a few that i question rather the person even knows what batman does or who he is.
Its been done to death. A new protoge for Batman.
So think of maybe joining another family instead of this one.
I barley ever see any aquaman members. (And yes aquaman IS awesome.)
Related to the Joker and Harley Quinn
Rather this is by blood, being kidnapped or anything close to that..
There's a lot of them out there.
And while it can be an interesting thing to do its actually n
DC High - Young Justice rpersIf you're not interested and the title has something with DC High or DC academy in there you can just click this awayDC High - Young Justice rpers in Personal More Like This
Anyway, i'm going through with this idea.
So many people seemed interested so i figured, why not ^^
People that join can also rp canon characters as well.
Its a first pic first serve system.
And when you claim this character you can make him/her exactly how you'd portray them.
Even to the point of letting them date your own oc. (Your chara to rp so feel free to i guess)
You don't always have to rp them all the time, you can treat them as any normal oc. And rp them when yuo feel like it.
BUT you can't claim them just to ship and then never rp them :U
Speaking of shipping with them. Be sure to ask permission to ship with the other person's character first.
(Example: You choose Miss Martian. And write down she's dating Superboy. While superboy, rp'ed by someone else, has him single)
Here's the rules quick written:

I'm participating in a "Pay It Forward" initiative. The first 5 people to comment with "I'm in" will receive a surprise from me at some point in this calendar year
(please realise that means it could be tomorrow, or it could be eight months from now).
This surprise may be a piece of art, some points, something from your wishlist, etc. If you want or need something, I will "Pay It Forward." Get it? But keep in mind it's a surprise, which means you don't choose what you get. I do.
Here's the deal though: If you comment "I'm in," you must do this as well. "Pay it Forward" is the name of the game. You've been told!
Post a journal like this, follow the rules, and let's all try to make people happy this year. Start 2015 (ITS FUCK IN SEPTEMBER HOLLA) off right!
Please do not ask me when you will be getting something.

If you're a fan of the old Teen Titans, like me, i definitely recommend watching this.
Anyway lets start with talking about this.

So in this episode Control freak admins that he was the one that made the old show into the new show how we know it today.
And that if the titans don't change their ways he's going to reboot them again (to which in my head i was screaming "YES PLEASE DO" )
The Titans watch old footage of their previous show, saying that it looks amazing, they're all so different and they look so awesome.
That they're stories have such deeper meanings and that it sucked that it ended on a cliffhanger.

A bittersweet post.(I'm breaking the fourth wall on this I just need to vent this.)A bittersweet post. in Personal More Like This
So today after returning home before dinner my grandmother turned on the news to catch the last couple minutes, the first thing she sees is a breaking news bulletin. Three girls... well women now were found alive today not more than an hour ago alive stowed away in a house.
These girls have been missing for ten years now, all still alive and from what I understand healthy along with an unknown amount of children. Its bittersweet because though they were finally found this shows how monstrous humanity truly is. I can only imagine what that monster did to them and I am so happy they have him in custody. Whatever happens to him in prison he deserves it.
You may go about your businesses people.

Saints and Sinners
There are seven vices or sin and seven virtues, every being born/created whether human or monster is given one vice and one virtue. Angels and demons are different however, angels only have virtues and demons only have vices. Now it is ok to an extent to give in to your vice as long no one is harmed in the process. Now a being such as Vernus where he is inhabited by a second soul he will have two vices but only one virtue.
Angels and Demons, sorry Dan Brown don't sue me
Both do exist however it is far from peaceful. They can both be in a spiritual form or a physical one. In their spiritual forms they are both capable of possessing a human but they are different ways. Angels possess only people of faith and only if they are willing and will tre

1) Are you really ready for 125 questions?
Well since this is Visessentia's way of getting back at me for the last super long questionnaire I guess I have to be.
2) Was your last relationship a mistake?
No, far from it. Though I do not like how it ended I would still do it all over again.
3) Do you believe in God?
I guess I do. I mean since there is a devil there ought to be a god.
4) Who did you last say "I love you" to?
My friend and my current torturer for having me do this Visessentia.
5) Do you regret it?
No, not at all.
6) Have you ever been depressed?
I try not to be but there are times where I can't help it.
7) Have a best friend?
Many years ago it was my wife but as of recently the closest thing I have to that would be Visessentia.
8) Are you a boy or girl?
The last time I checked I was a boy.
9) What is your relationship status?
Widowed, unavailable.... Possibly taken? Not quite sure about that last

Though she appears young and innocent Alice is far from that, she is actually a mind controlling succubus. As all of the males of her kind are dead she must use her body as well as her powers to control men and hopefully find that special someone for her. Though she appears quite frail she is a competent fighter.
Raven is a Creole Voodoo crime lord who uses his Voodoo Zombies as puppets to perform robberies and smuggle drugs. Though he is a man of prime physical fitness he often cheats when he fights often using powders he's made to stun or poison his combatants as well as using his zombies to fight for him.

Texas Again, Davis Gone?, and DOMAAbortion Bill AgainTexas Again, Davis Gone?, and DOMA in Personal More Like This
Remember how awesome it was that Wendy Davis was able to filibuster her way through not getting a potentially damaging abortion bill from passing? Remember how the bill was DOA by the end of the night? Yeah... that's not happening now. Texas governor Rick Perry is calling for a second special hearing to be held on July 1st and is saying "Even the woman who filibustered in the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances. It's just unfortunate that she hasn't learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters."
Wow... what an A-hole. Maybe it's because she was born into difficult circumstances that she's able to see things not in such stark black and white contrasts and sees how damaging this bill will be. Perry went on to say "it's lawmakers' duty to prevent abortions, regardless of the conditions into which a child may be bor

See this is the problem I see with people who bitch and moan about Nintendo. They treat every single announcement like it somehow personally affects them, when usually it's an OPTIONAL thing they don't have to even deal with. Remember during the casual vs hardcore wars of the Wii era and people decrying Nintendo for adding the option to let Luigi play a level of NSMBWii if you failed too many times? Brilliant idea that ensures that players that work at it succeed and never see the option, and players that are duly frustrated after dying X number of times are allowed to still proceed but at a cost.

The reason these issues with women in comics and gaming and nerd culture in general is because of inclusivity and broadening demographics. Over a decade ago, nerd culture was still very much male dominated and exclusive. But over the years women have been getting into comics and gaming and everything else geek related much more so. I mean... don't get me wrong, they were ALWAYS there to being with... but for whatever reason it just started to become more socially acceptable to admit that you were a woman and a geek/gamer.
But the problem is that most of nerd culture and gaming are doing things same-old-same-old like they've always been doing things. They produce content exclusively for male audiences and don't understand why women are takin

So we have a budget that needs to get passed every year to keep things running. The president gives the budget to Congress and Congress approves of it. Except that Congress is so inefficient at getting things done, they often wait too long to pass the budget by the deadline. So generally what happens is they pass an extension to take care of it later, which shouldn't be a big deal. But this year Republicans added an addendum to the extension saying they wanted to bump Obamacare till next year, and squabbling ensued.
Now Obamacare has already passed into Law. It's even been upheld by the Supreme Court. There is nothing Republ
The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneySaw The Hobbit last night. It was very good... if a bit long. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for seeing all the little details interconnecting The Hobbit to Lord of the Rings and all that, but for the average watcher... eh... it kinda dragged. I overheard several people saying they fell asleep during the film, and I noticed more than once a number of people fidgeting and looking at their watches. Still, it's a damn fine movie and It's a shame we have to wait so long for the next two films.The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in Personal More Like This
Having The Hobbit being written during the beginning of Lord of the Rings is pretty smart. You could effectively watch the 3 Hobbit movies and then immediately move right into the 3 Lord of the Rings movies. Kudos to Jackson for that, it'll be great to marathon run the two trilogies back to back.
This movie was, like the book, much lighter and funnier than The Lord of the Rings and I was surprised at how much from the books they actually kept. They
Tired of the Video Game IndustryWith the PS4 on the way, the gaming industry is alive once again reminding us how dull and boring and... wrong... it is. Here's a quick summary of some of the things I'm sick to death of hearing about when it comes to video games.Tired of the Video Game Industry in Personal More Like This
Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know
Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise
Texas Abortion Bill FilibusterIn case you live outside the USA and haven't heard of this yet, Texas was preparing to vote on a radical bill that would effectively outlaw abortions within their boarders. Senator Wendy Davis came in early in the morning with the expressed intent of filibustering: The goal being to delay the critical vote.Texas Abortion Bill Filibuster in Personal More Like This
Wendy Davis talked for 11 hours straight. No food. No drinks. No bathroom breaks. She couldn't even pause for a moment to take a sip of water or else she'd give up the floor and the vote could get underway. 11 hours straight she talked and just before the midnight cutoff she was interrupted, and the vote began... only to become absolute pandemonium as the crowd watching protested the interruption.
The GOP insists that the vote carried and passed, while the Democrats insist that they were still taking votes after the midnight cutoff thanks to the chaos that ensued. This is going to be one of those instances where the GOP are gonna try to lie and shove their way through our diplomatic
Proving your Geek CreedNerds all share a unified experience of being socially ostracized from the rest of other so-called "normal" societal groups. The reasons may vary (not being good at sports, liking a certain sci-fi/fantasy TV show, etc), but the fact that we all were picked upon and marginalized during our most formable years is a major part of the nerd/geek identity. But in recent years nerd culture stopped being it's own niche thing, and has started to seep into mainstream culture. Making nerd culture more accessible has naturally brought with it a new group of people and fans into our sphere... and not everyone is happy about this development.Proving your Geek Creed in Personal More Like This
Personally I think it's great that nerd culture has become so widely accepted lately. I can freely have a discussion about my favorite DC or Marvel superheros in public without getting looks of disgust or incredulity because EVERYONE loves Batman and The Avengers. And if I make an obscure joke about Doctor Who, there's a LOT of people who will get it now. But l
