Miguel and Tulio are the two main characters from the Dreamworks production The Road to Eldorado. A children's film about two best friends seaking wealth and adventure, find the lost city of gold. The film is brilliant because the characters are very unique, compared to the cliché heroes you see in other movies.
So to prove my point, please read this ->
1. He loves all of Tulios ideas, both good or bad (mostly bad )
2. Miguel has Tulio wrapped around his little finger, knowing exactly what to do or say to get Tulio to do what he wants.
3. Tulio made Miguels rich
4. Miguel can always trusts Tulio to come up with a plan on the spot to get them out of trouble.
5. Miguel became jealous seeing Tulio making out with Chel when they both promised that she was off limits, so not to affect their friendship.
6. Miguel was hurt hearing Tulio suggesting they (he and Chel) forget about him. He was deeply hurt b
Tip #2: When beginning a story, and a chapter, it often helps to start the story/chapter in the middle of an action, because then you immediately grasp the reader's attention.
Tip #3: When writing a summary, you might want to include a very short excerpt from your story. That way, you get the reader intrigued. In a real, published book, the first thing that a person sees is the cover, second the title, and third, the

Last time, we spoke about every story has a Narrator, and about how to create the narrator that will tell your story. Now, if you have decided to write with a narrator who is not an actual character in the story, you now need one last character—the one through whose eyes your Narrator will tell the story—and to know a few things about how to use this character. That character is the Point-of-View (POV) character.
Tip 1: Know that your POV character can be anyone in the story.
Your POV character is not necessarily going to be the protagoni
• MY OPINION: This is what I have gathered based on reading and analyzing all of the major Mary sue-related articles and looking at the tests multiple times. I hate reading, but I do read fast and its character stuff, so it does interest me. I didn't write all this for you or for anyone to say “___ doesn't make a character a sue! What are you talking about?” I typed this for you to know in general how I perceive them and list the traits based off an analysis. I’m not saying all sues have to have these—no, Mary sues are more often than not based off a combination of things, but how they are written is key.
• NO ONE IS SAFE: It typically varies fandom to fandom and most people make their own views of what a sue is or isn't. But a sue can be any character, fandom or otherwise. Unfortunately, any character can become a sue if they are written like one. So watch how you write and be careful to avoid the things mentioned abov
1. First Drafts ALWAYS Suck
It's a simple fact. You won't be a pro from the beginning, no matter how much natural talent you may have. Just accept this. So how do you deal with this? Just write. Write the first draft of whatever you're working on. Write a lot of it, if not all of it. From when you start and when you stop, you will see a HUGE progression in your writing. You'll see just how much your writing evolved and improved over time, especially if you got feedback along the way.
With that experi
Definition of the Medium
Gouache is similar to watercolor and acrylic. But it has unique characteristics that differentiate it from both of them.
Like watercolor, it's water soluble and its binder is gum arabic (M. Graham & Co use honey ιn their gouache). The pigment ratio however is much higher compared to watercolor. It's also opaque (containing chalk). However, it can be thinned down to washes and worked just like watercolor. In that form it's less translucent than watercolors but you'll have a hard time to tell the difference. Most importantly it can build up opaque layers.
When it dries - like acrylic - the lights tend to be a bit darker and the darks a bit lighter. It dries fast and flat. Although - unlike acrylic - the opaque layers of gouache can be reactivated with water. Despite the matte look, gouache has a special vibrancy in opaque form due to the high pigment load.
If you work in watercolor, y
Always try and get the best looking wig for your character! If you've gone to all that effort with your costume it's honestly in your best interest to get a wig that looks good to complete the look. You don't need to break the bank if you don't want to, and don't worry if you aren't the best stylist out there! Just make sure that it's the same colour as your character and vaguely resembles their hair style and it will instantly look so much better than using your own hair if it looks nothing like the character you're trying to portray. Make the effort and you won't regret it!
Tip 2 - Putting on a wig!
Ok! So one of the best things to make wearing a wig easier is to wear a wig cap underneath the wig - this helps to hold all of your hair in neatly underneath the wig and will also help to hold the wig on more securely. You can either buy a premade wig cap or go for the slightly cheaper option of cutting the legs off a pair of ti
When you sit down to start your story, let it write itself and be sure to keep your characters and dialogue realistic. This is accomplished through many different approaches. As a writer, you must learn to hone your powers of observation and watch people and how they interact. Research can come in a variety of forms, from reading other authors to watching movies as well. Keen observat
Come up with a good background for the character:
One thing I can't stress enough is to get at least a decent idea of your character's history before whatever you decided on as the "present time". Things to keep in mind here would be the relationship with parents (if any), natural tendencies while growing up, relationships with friends, things like that. Now I'm not saying you have to have every single little nuance down before you go anywhere else with it, you can paint the background in some fairly broad strokes zooming into one or two major incidents that help shape the character's personality today.
I hope these short and simple Tutorials will help boost and
inspire YOU to learn and create your own works in the many
forms and mediums that you may work in.
SO... The first Hint/Tip is -
FIXING WARPED FINISHED WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
(lumpy or uneven surface)
1- The warped painting
2 - Turn the painting around and cover the back
with plenty of water from corner to corner
3- Place in a large hardback book between blank pages
4- Close the book and place something heavy on it and wait
30 to 50 minutes so that the pages absorb the moisture
5- You open the book and the painting is flat

i could tell you anything. i really could, i would be open to that. but it seems to be three am and you're not around so i find myself telling this blank sheet of paper instead. but if you were here right now, i would talk to you about my day, and my family and my life and how scared i am and maybe, just maybe
you would understand. and tell me it's okay. and keep me company through the night and tell me if you were here you would be holding my hand. maybe you would make everything okay, after dark. i'm alright with that, i'm alright with you, and i could be alright with us if maybe i could find the courage to tell you and if you could find the ears to listen or the eyes to read or the mind to pick up on all the clues i've been dropping like bread crumbs.
i'm not gretel, but you could be my hansel, if you wish.
i mean, i would let you. i would let you be my anything, really. you are just so pleasant - s
