As the next planet over that visiting wouldn’t be all that difficult (Venus being way too hot), especially after our trips to our own moon, Mars has always held a special attraction for our science fiction writers and illustrators. In fact, the comic book and the paperback novel are media in which fiction and art have formed a bond like no other in which the exterior presentation (the cover art) for the artform itself (the sci-fi novel’s text) is often of equal importance, creating a combined force, in serving the narrative.

While the majority of the people reacted very positively towards the tips & tricks I shared, there were also some very hostile reactions that ideas like that would encourage you to be something you're not.
I'd like to elaborate on that.
First of all, these tips are basically science.
I didn't just randomly think them up. Most of the points are things that have been proven through marketing- and usability research. This whole marketing thing, however, is a field many artists are for some reason unfamiliar with, so people don't take it into account when wondering why they don't get the exposure they think they deserve. They often undeserving think it's their art that sucks, and that's a shame.
The reason I post this stuff, is mainly because I want people to know.

My deviantART StoryIt all started a few years ago, with a single piece of art.My deviantART Story in Art Features More Like This
I can remember having seen digital art before, but it never really impacted me. The fact that it wasn't real, on paper, and I couldn't touch it, made it somehow distant to me. Yet, for whatever reason, this piece was different to me. I can still remember staring at it from the screen of my computer, not being able to grasp how someone was able to make art that flawless, pretty and beautiful. And how a person was able to express that much emotion with just a few brush strokes. Call me stupid, or naive. But I just could "get" it.
I think it was that piece of art that gave me a reason to try. Or more, a direction that I wanted to go in.
Before that time I was like a clueless wanderer. I've been writing a story for years. But I was basically lost in a maze of what I wanted or what I could do when it came to drawing stuff. My lack of skill and fear of failure got

Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.Conquer your artblock in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years.

Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.

But even though temporary, it did changed my perspective on some matters.
It's weird how much the internet can become an influence, and how this process goes so unnoticed. At a certain point the countless voices of people around you blend into a continuous buzz. A buzz that you soon get so familiar with that you forget there was a life before it. I guess that's what social media does in general; creating a buzz. An artificial need for you to continuously be online and check your messages, because you might just miss something otherwise. Life, in general, has become so infused with the internet that it sometimes scares me. I'm part of the internet industry. Hell, I even made it my job! But even I sometimes find myself wondering where the time has gone that I could work on an artwork for hours straight, without feeling that creeping itch to check my messages.

Drawing from life is awesome!
Look for life drawing classes in your environment, or if they're not available; ask your friends to pose for you. Go have a drink in the city when the weather is nice, and sketch people passing by. There's nowhere you learn more about human anatomy than by observing and sketching real people. There's only one downside to this; dynamic poses are tricky, as it's hard for any model to hold a difficult pose for a long time.
And no... drawing (nearly) naked people in a drawing class isn't awkward. I

Clan FAQJust gonna do a quick FAQ on Clans since there've been a lot of inconsistencies.Clan FAQ in Personal More Like This
I'm gonna try and be brief and concise because I've got a lot to do today - here goes:
#1 Living Arrangements:
All Clan Members Live Within The Clan Compound - Living outside of the Compound is TURNING YOUR BACK ON THE CLAN!
- We have mentioned repeatedly a CLAN is a FAMILY - Why do you think they have a Compound reserved only for them?
- You are ALLOWED to live outside of this compound - but in doing so you are ABANDONING YOUR CLAN.
In Particular - The Kitsune have been Stated to all LIVE UNDER THE SAME ROOF (One 3-tiered Castle), But -
numerous people have disregarded or gone against this so the Compound will be redesigned from scratch - Again.
- It will likely be structured as one large castle and a few small buildings for non-royalty Kitsune.
- Same thing with the Asukai - there are two castles
April Fools: There is no April Fools. So, we received a lot of mixed feedback on our "April Fool's" joke journal.April Fools: There is no April Fools. in Personal More Like This
But that's exactly why I uploaded that journal, to make a point about that.
This group has gotten to a point that you can't even make a joke anymore
without gathering some kind of negativity. We've become too way uptight.
Some people were cool about it and had fun, or played along, or joked too!
We had a share of skeptical people as well who kinda ruined the fun a little bit,
but that's to be expected, there will always be people with no sense of humor.
What got me is that some people were just downright surly and defeatist,
while others made passive aggressive comments or gave genuine opposition.
A lot of these people later clung to the idea that they "Knew it was a joke,"
but why on earth would you get upset about it if you knew that it was a joke?
Why not have a laugh for morale instead of leaping to oppose it or trash talk?
Asukai clan Rule RevampHello fellow Asukai members, or just other members who might be curious.Asukai clan Rule Revamp in Personal More Like This
I had no other idea on how to spread the message across to all Asukai members but to make a journal, so sorry for spamming the rest of you with this info that might not be as important.
Basically, the timeskip is coming up. The first time around, a handful of members didn't quite follow the rules on the design of your Asukai character.
This time around, i would really like it if you would follow the guidelines. We are a clan, so it does make sense for all of our characters to look alike. c:
To make things short:
-The Asukai are a very old and traditional clans, so they have to wear kimonos, or samurai esque outfits.
-Their color of their clothes should be very dull, almost gray.
-With them being almost like samurai warriors, armors and pads are very important on vital areas. Arms, legts, stomach, chest etc~
-They always wear gloves to protect their hands from blisters.
-Their hair is WHITE

General Application StatisticsGeneral Application Statistics:General Application Statistics in Personal More Like This
Girls: 15 (8 non-clan, 5 clan, 2 civ)
Guy: 7 (2 non-clan, 5 clan, 0 civ)
Currently we have more than twice as many female applications as we do male applications,
unfortunately, we are taking an EVEN SPLIT - (same amount of males as females),
especially since the majority of those who quit the group had MALE characters,
as well as having more gay pairings than straight pairings, so the village is pretty male-starved right now.
Please keep in mind - with the new clans opening, Clan applications are at priority!
So chances are - at least 5 of those 8 non-clan apps will NOT be accepted if we don't get more males.
I'm not saying take out your application and submit a new one - that's ridiculous.
(Besides - you might be one of the one's we're planning on accepting!)
Please also keep in mind - submitting to a Clan =/= guaranteed acceptance,
a bad application is a bad application regard

The exams have come to an end, and the results were given. Here's the complete list of the passing shinobi in the exam.
If you're not on this list, I'm afraid your oc failed. Sorry. But you can always try again in 2 months!
We're not gonna say 'when' this exam happened just because it would clash a bit with the first,
namely because we didn't have enough to do separate age groups - so we blended them all.
So basically - it just means, this exam was 6 months after the exam you failed in (if it was your second try).
Passing Results for the Exam:
The ceremony of Victory was held in front of the Akarikage's castle, a simple celebration.

Going to China!It's been almost five years since I last visited my homeland, and I'm excited and scared at the same time.Going to China! in Personal More Like This
My last visit in 2009 left me a bit traumatized but I think I'm okay now. My stepmother and half brother in China had tried to kill me with a kitchen knife. I was shaking and crying when I escaped in a taxi that night. After that event, I couldn't feel safe anymore. I changed my flight to return to the US sooner, and never wanted to go back again.
But that's in the past now. I miss my grandparents and other relatives. I miss the food, the cicadas, the unique mountainscape of Sichuan, and ever dwindling bits of the old city that's quickly being replaced by skyscrapers.
I'm looking forward to seeing how much China has changed. Though I'm not looking forward to breathing that air. Air pollution is such a constant health hazard that I had to buy hundreds of dollars worth of respirators for me and my grandparents. I will also be buying air purifiers (that's another five hundred dollars

It took many long and heated discussions before we finally came to an understanding but it was definitely worth it.

He said he regrets the way he treated me, and has promised to try to visit me once a year.

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.

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.

The Lamentations of a Sun Goddess (Part 3) I tried desperately to shake away the memory of that horrid battle, but it clung to my mind like water on my pelt. The best I could do was keep my distance from the stone block. My gaze turned back to Konohana and I gave a short, soft howl, then suddenly the scent of flowers was almost over powering. A white glowing orb came fluttering down from the great tree's branches. It was graceful in its descent, and it too carried the scent of the pink blossoms. The figure of a woman materialized from the orb, and as the shape became clearer, the white orb began to fade away.The Lamentations of a Sun Goddess (Part 3) in Personal More Like This

Ghirahim is the main villain in "The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword", a game released to the public for the Wii console in 2011. (SPOILERS AHEAD. PROCEED WITH CAUTION) He's cocky, dramatic, a skilled swordsman and magician, and quite frankly, he's just messed up in the head. The overall goal of the game is to get our hero, Link, past all of the monsters and boss battles flung at you, (three of which are matches between you and Ghirahim) and ultimately reunite with your childhood friend, Zelda, who Ghirahim is trying to get his hands on so that he can revive his master. Throughout the entire game, Zelda manages to stay just out of both Ghirahim's and our hero's reach, while Ghirahim does everything in his power to

"So, a multi-headed dog, huh? There's only one monster that fits the description: the three headed guard of the Underworld; the Cerberus." Hate to burst your bubble, but as you probably guessed from the title, that's incorrect.
The Cerberus was one of many creatures born from the monsters Typhon and Echidna. Among the Cerberus were the Chimaera, Nemean Lion, Hydra, Gorgon (Medusa's race), etc. There was also said to be a two-headed hellhound in the mix. But the number of heads isn't the only difference between the two dogs. Hellhounds in mythology, like the Cerberus,

Let him know
Let him know
I won't hold back anymore
Let him know
Let him know
I'll come crashing through the door
I don't care about the light world's fate
Let the storm rage on
The dark never bother bothered me anyway
It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the curse that has transformed me
Won't get to me at all

Soooooooo I was recently watching Jon Cozart (Mr. After Ever After) play the Disney Challenge with one of his friends, and it got me thinking, why don't we do something like that? It doesn't have to be Disney necessarily (though we all know StormWings would LOVE that), we could do another movie franchise, or even video games! It doesn't have to be all together either. We probably wouldn't be able to come up with something that we're all decent at in the first place... But anyway, I personally want to do at least one Zelda challenge (just one game. trying to pick out tracks from more than a single game is just gonna make our lives heck) with at least one other person. But it's just an idea, and... yeah... tell me what you think!

Second, on a completely unrelated note, I am seriously considering opening up little dragon adoptions!!!! These elemental chibi creatures come in whatever element you can think of, from earth to fire, space, to even time! Now, I am busy, so the drawings might be slow coming, but I will be doing my best to keep up production, should you guys want a dragon. I will be taking requests in the dragon commish slot on my home page. That being said, if you want an array of dragons to choose from instead of a specific request, just tell me in the comments and I will get to it whenever I can!
Hope to hear from you guys soon!
