Beware of Scam NotesWell it's happening again. I just received this note not too long ago:
If you receive a message like this, DO NOT click on the link (it could be a virus). Instead, mark this note as Spam, report it, or just simply delete it (Do not respond to the note). I already knew that this note was a scam for 4 things:
#1. I have received a similar letter months before
#2. Deviantart changed Premium Membership's name to Core, so clearly this moron forgot to change the name.
#3. Deviantart DOES NOT give away free Core Membership, EVER!
#4. I already have Core Membership, why would I need more?
So for those of you that are reading this, please share this with your friends (esp. ones that don't have Core Membership) so that none of them fall for this trick.
Guide to Writing SummariesThis is to all of my fanfiction.net peeps, and to anyone who wants to learn how to write a quick, less-than-five sentences summary of their fanfiction or story.
1. For the love of all that is good fanfiction/writing, stop writing summaries like this:
A story about a boy and a girl that meet on vacation...Sry I suck at summaries. Plz read. It's good I promise. I am so much better at writing stories than writing summaries. Before you even try to give me an excuse, let me give you a fact. 99.99999999% of readers DO NOT EVEN BOTHER TO READ YOUR STORY BECAUSE OF THAT. I can't tell you how many times I have seen that on FFN and I just keep on scrolling past every story with one of those. You may not intend it, but this is the message you are sending to potential readers:
"I am not going to even try writing a summary because I am not confident at all in my writing abilities. I am a novice please give me a chance please please please!"
...No. Just no.
Things to remember, artists:1) Just because you are female/male doesn't mean you may draw your own sex correctly.
2) Just because someone doesn't have art/writing in their gallery or doesn't do it 'well' to your standards, doesn't mean they can't see errors in your own works. That's like saying we're not allowed to be critics of movies, because we don't make them.
3) Even if someone is not appreciative of your excellent criticism doesn't mean they won't grow to acknowledge it or work on learning from it. If they don't, it's a moot point, and the artist is only hurting themselves.
4) It is okay to use tricks in paint programs, but there is such a thing as 'too much' and cheating yourself as well as being lazy. Trade your bases for references and work on your hand/eye coordination. The more you reference something, the more you'll learn to do it without looking at something or tracing. Try and make your own textures now and again without relying on someone else to do it for you. Try to draw the entire body of the c
RavenousFandoms: Doctor Who, Casanova
Theme: "Doppleganger Crossover" trope
“Down this way!”
The tall man yanked his blond companion into the alley and they pelted at top speed with barely a glance behind them.
“It’s going to kill us, Doctor!” the girl cried as he skidded to a stop and, with frantic gestures, ushered her through a low door into a villa garden.
“Nonsense, Rose!” he replied as he dashed around, taking stock of what was at hand. “We just startled him. And honestly, he’s not murderous,” he grinned as he leapt over a low fence into a chicken coop, “he’s just hungry.”
As a fanged beast, about the size of a large dog, charged in and roared at Rose, the Doctor scooped up a chicken and tossed it into the animal’s mouth. It dropped to the ground and started on its meal.
“There! You see? Perfect.” He pulled a leash out of his pocket and slipped it over its head. The
TARDIS CORAL DEFINITION AND EXPLANATIONMany of my friends have been asking me, "what the heck is up with TARDIS coral?"
Is the ship made of TARDIS coral?
Answer: A TARDIS is grown from Gallifreyan Coral, but it is not made of it.
A TARDIS is grown from an initial block math created form of Genetically engineered Coral substance. The coral is essentially the brain of a TARDIS ship, as it is necessary for there to be an organic computational format needed to perform the complex mathematical computations necessary for block math transfer, the use of mathematical formulas to define matter and the creation of matter with use of Atron Energy. Arton energy is defined simply as pure thought, or the energy that flows through any living creatures brain between the synapses of a brain. Psychic energy is a form of Atron, whereas Atron can be converted through the main engine of a TARDIS and turned into reverse revolution Gravity, which is then piped into the main console and works in concert with the Vworp
