Why Do I Suck At This?I really, really, really wish I was an artist. I have so many great ideas for so many big time awesome pics and many ocs I want to see brought to life via drawings (and some I want to do a Tumblr ask/rp blog of) but I can’t do any of that stuff because I can’t draw to save my f-ing life and it gets to me cause I’d have to relay on others but I got no one to relay on for this and I’m scared to ask others for help cause I’ll likely appear selfish, greedy and be a burden to them due to the specific details I have with a lot of these pics as some are in a certain animation style. I’m patient on waiting for them but I don’t think that be enough to convince anyone to draw for me. It’s stuff like this that makes me wish I never had this big imagination.
Sequels Galore Or My Versions At LeastSo I've gotten into what I consider some of the best animated films from last year and three of them (Wreck-It Ralph, Rise of The Guardians and Hotel Transylvania) have really gotten my interest so much that I've started AIM rps of them with my bf. Well I like what I've done with my bf in these rps a lot so I've decided to turn the rps into fan-fics which I'll be posting here on DA. Wreck-It Ralph has the most (though I need to re-get the rp from him as I lost it when my laptop got fixed -long story-) so I'll likely be putting up that one first but I might do Hotel Transylvania first as I've been watching the movie (three times so far) via Comcast On Demand so I'm in a big HT mood. Well either way I hope you all are looking forward to these upcoming fan-fics as I am with releasing them on here.
Chaotic NewsOk so if anyone has looked at my gallery and recent uploads then you know that I am a Brony. Well lately I've been in a MLP mood and when I can get them together will be bringing on some MLP pics (mostly via a pony creator until I can get the supplies to make the drawings I want) and fan-fics, among other things. I also got three songs in the work. The first being my fan-made song Shining Light's Hope then doing my versions of Youtuber Pinksey's Party Maybe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHqsoWSYI88 and BlueParatroopa's Our Town http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M79K-bfnHv8. Now while watching MLP, I've come to notice that Discord has many similarities to Young Justice villain Klarion (obvious one being that their both chaos beings) which has lead me to come up with a fan-fic series of the two of them teaming up (seriously, why hasn't anyone else thought of this months ago?) to try to take over Equestria for The Light (they'll let Discord rule the world but as partners The Light will get
To Boldly GoI found out about an hour ago that legendary astronaut Neil Armstrong died at age 82. For those that don't know he was part of the space crew that were the first people to land on the moon in 1969 during that big space race with Russia and was the first person to step foot on the moon, uttering the now famous lines "One small step for man. One giant leap for mankind.". He helped pioneer space travel and inspired many generations of children who would work hard to become an astronaut. I should also add that he wasn't the only one we lost this year as last month astronaut Sally Ride, the first woman to go into space passed away at age 61. Though this is sad as both are great heroes, their legacy will never be forgotten and will always be remembered in the years to come.
Poll Results! Yay! :iconrequestsask: :icongiftsask: :iconpointcommissionsopen:
The results from my polls are as followed.
Blossom - Dexter
Buttercup - Rainbow Dash
And that's the end result of my polls. Now I know a lot of you are wondering about with Bubbles. Well I'm making her be an angel in the pic. So till next time everyone and thanks for voting! Hope you're looking forward to the pic.
In The Name Of Polls + Fics I'll Punish You :iconrequestsask: :icongiftsask: :iconpointcommissionsopen:
Ok if you haven't guessed the last few hours I have taken part of deviantART's one day free premium membership by finally giving all of my journals the skins I've wanted to use on them and customize my DA profile the way I've wanted it as well as doing the polls I've always wanted to do. Now back when I was in high school I use to draw a pic of the Powerpuff Girls in Halloween costumes every October. I will be restarting that tradition this year but I'm having trouble with figuring out what costume to use for Blossom and Buttercup. Thus I am asking you, my viewers and friends to help me figure that out. Here http://shiorisohma.deviantart.com/journal/poll/3056418/ , http://shiorisohma.deviantart.com/journal/poll/3056491/ are the polls. They end at 2:57 am EST. Thanks in advance everyone. Also I will be trying to get fan-fics up today. Both the ones I said I be
Let The Games Begin! :iconpointcommissionsopen: :iconrequestsask: :icongiftsask:
First off I like to give a big thanks to those friends of mine on here that came to my side when I had a moment of personal crisis over wither or not I stay on here (one of them brought me to the good kind of tears) and showed to me how strong friendship can be.
Ok so even though it didn't top what China did (quite frankly I think the only country that can do that is Japan) I was impressed (my fav part being the scene that showed the evolution of Britain's music culture from the 60's to now and come on, you really can not go wrong with having Paul McCartney there performing Beatles songs) by England's opening ceremony for the Summer Olympics. Being a big fan of Hetalia, I didn't pay attention that much to the walk of nations thing cause I would have trouble keeping myself togeth
Yay me! Also...Slender Man! :icontradesopen: :iconcollabsopen: :iconpointcommissionsopen: :iconrequestsask: :icongiftsask:
Ok I was saving this as a surprise but I am planning a series of short stories called Disturbia which was inspired by an amv made by my awesome bff MidnightDevont http://midnightdevont.deviantart.com/ which can be viewed here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoiW4H0ilUY and yes some stories will incorporate one or more things from the song but the main thing with the series revolves around different kinds of horror aspects which (in each story) will take place in different parts of the world. Some countries will be used more then once (like America and Japan) and some stories will feature urban legends as well as internet made horror like the Lavender Town Syndrome and the Slender Man who will likely be in more then one story as that guy can be used for any kind of place. I might have stories that are a nod and in wa
Tribute/Memorial Pic Help - Please ReadI tried to draw a tribute/memorial pic for the victims of that shooting at that movie theater in Colorado but I failed big time thanks to my laptop having a mouse pad thing that makes drawing impossible to do and I have no other way (no money for art supplies and/or tablet) to draw it so I need help. Can someone please draw the line-art for the pic for me? I'll do the coloring and wording. Whoever does the line-art will be credited for it by me via the pic description. The pic has two scenes. The first part is Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup of the Powerpuff Girls sitting in a movie theater, one of them is eating popcorn, one is drinking from a soda and the last one can be eating candy, nachos or whatever else a movie theater snack bar has. Blossom is dressed up as Batgirl, Bubbles is dressed up as Catwoman and Buttercup is dressed up as the Tim Drake Robin in his second outfit. The second part of the pic has Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup (no costumes, just themselves) sitting on the g

No more excuses, it's time to improve your art!You’re probably well acquainted with the old proverb “practice makes perfect.” And while I don’t fully believe that perfection is attainable, because the very notion of perfection is somewhat subjective, getting better at anything requires both time and effort. I’m going be very blunt here; if you want to improve your artistic skill you need to actually practice.
My heart goes out to everyone here who is struggling to improve so don’t feel that I’m purposely singling you out here. However throughout my time on dA (and in real life) I’ve met artists begging for advice on how to quickly improve and sadly when I tell them to begin practicing the excuse is always ‘well, I don’t really have the time for that.’
And I ain’t got time for yo attitude.
You do have the time

You CAN Do It Too! Commissions, Exposure, and...
Do you feel like no one cares about your artwork? That no matter how hard you try, you'll never improve? Well, I've been there before.
A little less than a year ago, I didn't even have 100 watchers. It was tough trying to find commissions, even though I priced them around 10 - 100 an hour. Sure, I had some wonderful people supporting me (thank you very much for that!), but when I looked at the thousands of diehard fans the "popular" artists had, I felt kinda useless. It seemed like even a thousand watchers, or just being able to earn minimum wage was impossible. Sometimes I wanted to cry from all the effort I put in. I kept drawing and drawing but barely improving. I was frustrated and felt useless. But instead of giving up, I pushed myself even harder, and by God's grace it's starting to work out for me.
I now have over 16,000 amazing people encouraging me, and I know it's only a matter of tim

Basic CSS Style GuideIntroduction
CSS is a style language used to define the style and formatting of web pages. It is used in conjunction with HTML.
If we think of HTML as the building blocks of the web then, essentially, CSS is the painter and decorator. Very simply, HTML defines the structure of the page and CSS defines the style.
What I'll be helping you with here is getting to grips with the basics of CSS. I'll be explaining how use CSS as well as providing a number of examples that you can use to style your own web pages and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also written a brief glossary of terms and provided a list of useful links in case you wish to do some further reading.
A point of note is that while the information and examples I've given here apply to CSS use anywhere on the web, this guide itself is geared towards the use of CSS on deviantART. As such, and given that this h

Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.
How you can help

A D'oh! AnnouncementOk, I know I said I be doing Teen Titans stuff but as my journal title shows that will not be the case. Thanks to me getting the 14th season of The Simpsons in the mail (mostly got it cause it has a Sideshow Bob ep in it and if you've seen my favorites the last few hours you will know that I am a big time Sideshow Bob and Cecil -Bob's brother for those who don't know- Terwilliger fangirl) I am in a big Simpsons mood which means there will be a fan-fic series dealing with the series (and yes Sideshow Bob will be in it quite a bit, come on the series is more fun when he's there) and pics that some awesome people and artists on here did for me (thanks again and in advance for those that are making me pics dealing with it) featuring my ocs and other chars from the show. Now not sure if it will be via a pic I requested or by myself (if I somehow can as I am still unfortunately lacking the art supplies -for traditional- and tablet -for digital- I need) but I will also at some point be puttin

A Turning Point in the Clockwork WarA war of attrition
depends on supply and drawdown,
how much you have and how much you use up.
With personnel, the balance concerns
the influx of recruitment versus
the outflow of casualties, deserters, invalids.
There is only so much loss
that a fighting force can sustain
and still fight.
Pilot Claude Archer was the first
to challenge his invalid discharge.
"I don't need legs to fly," he said,
patting the healed stumps of his thighs.
"My Osprey runs on elbow grease."
The members of the discharge board
paused and looked at each other.
What he said was true.
The Osprey-class fighter jets
relied on hand controls,
and a sharp eye and iron nerve.
Fingers flicked through the stack
of discharge papers -- so many, many pages.
So many soldiers lost, never to fight again.
They could not afford to let slip even one
who might be retained, somehow,
to face the front line once more.
Far less could the war effort spare
one of its best pilots.
So they put Pilot Archer back on the roster,
