Hate MeHate me, despise me,
But know that you will never be rid of me.
I am the wretched beast inside your heart.
I am the very weight of your insecurity.
I am the feeling of dread that binds you,
Slithering through shaking veins.
To me you are but a simple host,
And while you suffer, I will grow.
Feeding off the pain that tears you apart.
I'll put into words and call it art.

it hangs on my bonsai tree

sometimes, when even stars

enough to make me happy, i cut
down the paper stars and pretend
that it is a meteorite shower in my

because i realize
that shooting stars are actually

made us fly,
it's just that some of us are blazing and beautiful

i can write disorderly words with random indents
and call it "poem", and
people will still say
they like it
because we all know
what it's like to be unhappy
and there is nothing
unhappy people like better
than making people
i can jump over my own leg and
touch my toes if i really try,
but i can't stop being ter
RIP Christopher LeeLegendary actor, Christopher Lee, has died at the age of 93.
Though the man starred in epic film franchises, like Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings, he was always associated with Hammer Horror. Specifically, Dracula, whom he played on numerous occasions. The Hammer connection led to him being given roles in many of Tim Burton’s movies; Burton being a die hard fan of the style and genre.
Having generally been the bad-ass face (and voice!) of super-villainy for 50 years, the British had no choice but to knight him, and he became Sir Christopher Lee in 2009.
Inverted heroes are not a move forward.Taking a known hero of fiction and altering their gender and/or race is a stunt. A gimmick. They do it for the sake of “shock” advertising rather than out of any real desire to add variety to the predominantly white male pantheon.
There have been a few news articles to stoke my irritation over the last couple of months. First there was word that Thor of the Marvel universe was to become female, then there was a rumour James Bond was going to be recast with a black actor and now there are mumbles that the Spiderman who may/may not show up in the cinematic Marvel universe will be a black kid: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-31362800
Personally, I think all this crap is side-stepping the issue of diversity rather than addressing it. If the likes of Marvel were really serious about it, they’d invest time and capital creating new heroes who are a different gender/race from the get-go. Building up a new mythology for a female or black character would be so much str
Writing Tips and So Much MoreBeing a writer (or trying to be), I looked up a whole bunch of deviantART guides on writing and other related articles.
So if you are in the same boat I am (one that is quickly sinking into shark infested waters). I have some tips for you, or rather, I have a list of other people's articles you should read. (With a little commentary from me. ) These aren't in any particular order, so don't assume the first article will be much more helpful than the sixth or seventh. I like the guides that talk to the reader and make it personal. Like "I know from personal experience that writer's block can be a challenge. God, don't we all know. But I have some great tips." So go ahead and check out all of these great resources.

PE: Developing characters, stories and mangaHi everyone! How's your day going? Yesterday I shared with you the background tutorials that I considered to be useful to your development as artists and today I'd like to show you a few tutorials that have helped me greatly to develop my characters, stories and storytelling skills thus leading to better results while creating a manga comic. I hope these will encourage you to keep working on your mangas or to give it a shot if you have never tried before! Drawing manga can be a very demanding and sometimes frustrating task, but it's also a very rewarding and nourishing experience that you shouldn't miss out on! Do your best!
These are not the only tutorials on deviantART, it's just a selection of the ones that I've found more useful in my artistic development. If you know of any other impressive tutorial that you think should be listed here, share it in the comment section and I'll include it to the list!
CHARACTER DESIGNS & DEVELOPMENT
What Are Original Characters?What are original characters?
Hello everyone! Today we are going to go over the concept of "What is an original character" and this is actually part one of a two part news article series. The second article will be released at a later date.
What do original characters have to do with the Manga/Anime gallery here on deviantART? Well just about everything. The Manga/Anime gallery is designed for original characters only, and by original, I mean original. Here is an example of what I mean...
Drawings of characters submitted into the Manga/Anime gallery can only be your ownThe drawings of characters need to be from your own universe.If the character you are drawing is placed into another "existing universe" such as Pokemon or Naruto, they do not belong in Manga/Anime, instead they belong in fanart.Your own character, your own world, your own creation, then it can go into the Manga/Anime gallery
If anyone is still confused by that, I can show you some visuals using my character
