Goal for Next New Year'sEDIT 1 YEAR LATER:
Well, not nearly as far as all this. But actually the story itself is in a much better place -- much more interesting, many more layers, and a tighter plot to boot. (No functional full draft, however...not even one in which characters have the same name the whole way through. You know that awkward moment when you meet someone who has your character's first name and it's an uncommon enough first name that you're like, "Well...I had the name picked out long before I met you but let's avoid awkwardness" so you change the character name? That happened. Twice for the same character. Ugghh.)
And I think honestly the main reason a lot of this didn't happen is that I was super busy. Summer was when I planned to get most of this done -- and I was way, way too busy but in the best possible way. A lot of learning and growing on so many levels, and I finished almost every day utterly exhausted but happy. Worth putting this off. But, as a result, what precious little time I had i

We are Women. We are Human.What's going on?
While the US is not the country that forces a rape victim to marry her rapist, we are still a country where a woman's fundamental right to bodily integrity is denied by current and pending legislation, written and passed primarily by men.

National Novel Writing Month this November!You might know what NaNoWriMo means. You might not.
Whether you're new to the mad writing frenzy that is National Novel Writing Month or not, I encourage you all to take up the challenge!
You'll be writing 50,000 words in 30 days this November.
Sounds tough? It is, but you can do it. Just take it 1,667 words a day, slow and steady, or have yourself a few binge days every week. (You might find yourself spending inordinate amounts of time describing scenery in order to meet your word count each day!)
Whatever your strategy is, this is a challenge that will help you become a better writer. Too many novelists try to write a novel...and then barely scratch out a chapter, so frightened by the possibility of imperfection.
This challenge isn't meant to write any great piece of fiction. It is meant as an exercise to make you realize your writing potential--yes, you can write thousands and thousands of words, and yes, you can write down complete crap without the world e
Photoshop tutorial- PS basics 4I'm back with my journal tutorials for Photoshop. I didn't post any new journal tutorial in a while. Anyway, my previous tutorial you can check here. I'll describe some Photoshop basics for everyone who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: Tilt-Shift, Customizing brush 2, Lens Flare, Mask Tool,.
If you wish to see images in full resolution then simply click on the images below (they are big 1920 x 1080 px). I used Photoshop CC here, so some things may be different in lower PS versions. But most of things may be the same in all PS versions. I'll make even more tutorials like this, so stay tuned. And if you like it, then you can fav this article. Thank you and enjoy. I hope it's helpful. More tutorials by me you can see in feature below.
A Guide to TutorialsStock & Resources
So, you want to make an awesome tutorial for your friends, and anybody else who might be interested in your style/techniques/skills/programming/designing ...
There are some essentials you are going to want to keep in mind when you make your tutorial.
Its not just a bunch of text and some pictures (OK it is, but theres more you could do! )
Its not just a few quick tips or pointers for a friend who asked you for some more details (OK it is, but its more than that! )
Its not just some work in progress screenshots/photos of your next big project (OK it is, but its SO MUCH more than that!!)
Don't forget, great design IS ART!

How to render MMD videos like a pro!
The DeviantArt MMD community is notorious for its drama and mini-conflicts. It has also been the one in which I've encountered some of the rudest people on the Internet. However, I have also been rather fortunate in being able to become acquainted with some of the nicest, talented and knowledgeable people I've ever encountered anywhere. Many of these have graced my gallery with their visits, comments, encouragement and attentions. And a few, perhaps some of the most talented, have graciously given me access to hard to get models, exclusive previews of their MMD work and even insights into their methods of doing things.
Occasionally, I am gifted with real gems and this was the case when garmus1 dropped a note in my inbox the other night. Apart from the depth of knowledge that he gives into his methods, he's also given me permission to share that knowledge with the rest of the community.
Now, I know that some of you will have, after reading only
