9 Qualities Readers Want in Your Story's Antihero9 Qualities Readers Want in Your Story's Antihero
One of the most trending archetypes in modern literature and movies is the antihero. As such, it is also one of the most abused, used often to gain an automatic audience following, or to add sex appeal to a product. Alternatively, I see many beginning writers use the term “antihero” do describe a gritty, dark, or moody hero. All that being said—when created correctly, the antihero story is one of the best types available; which leaves only the matter of knowing the qualities which make a character into an antihero.
Quality 1: The Antihero has deep-rooted instincts to bring about both good and evil.
This is the primary difference that sets the antihero apart from heroes and villains. The antihero should never be just a moody hero that likes to dress in black clothing. Antiheroes are dynamic because they actually have the deep urge inside of them to do evil things, as well as good things. And a very good antihero should

Chapter 2 “Creating a Plot” – Section 1 “Plot Premise”
Unlike what I once thought, plot is not a natural result of telling a story. Plot, like all other parts of writing, is a craft that must be studied and then designed with purpose. That being said, there are many different ways that one creates a plot—and countless theories as to how they can be created with the most efficiency. Over the next few weeks, I'm going to teach you several of these techniques and help you to create a Plot Outline. Many people are against such structure in their writing, even many good writers. However, my purpose for this book is to create a system so that ANYBODY can write a novel—even those who cannot subconsciously create a plot in the back of their minds. I encourage a
Art Block 101 - The Ultimate Survival GuideFellow deviants struggling with art block: fear no more! - I am here for you
Since I have a loooot of experience with this common and scary phenomenon, I've decided I should share the knowledge: in this journal I'll give you my theories about types, causes and all the solutions I know of for art blocks :3 I hope this helps! (I think it can be useful even if you're not currently in a block!)
Alright, art block is a phase absolutely every single artist in the world goes through at some point in their artistic journey, usually many times. It's basically a seemingly random period of time where you seem to have no motivation/inspiration/will to draw, and/or nothing you draw seems to look right.
There are different types of art blocks, the main difference between them being the cause, and thus each type calls for a different approach. I believe the types are:

Chapter 3 “Characters” – Section 2 “Bad Character Types”
With Links to Supplementary Material
Last we talked about the Types of Character you could add to your writing. But there are also character types that you want to avoid as much as you can. Using the following types of character is usually the result of creating them only to move the plot along. And while moving the plot is important, it is equally so to create an organic world that mimics the originality in the world around us—especially in the complexity and uniqueness of every human. I encourage you to go through your novel or cast of characters, and either eliminate or improve e
9 Steps for Adding Genuine Depth to Your Story9 Steps for Adding Genuine Depth to Your Story
(Or Ridding Your Story of Pseudo-depth)
When writing a story, one of the most important aspects to the writer will be the themes. In other words, the message you want to tell the world through your characters, plot, and struggles. However, even stories with a good message often fail on a number of levels, or else try to be deep but come off sounding ridiculous. Today, I'm going to talk about how to create genuine depth in the themes, characters, and dialogue of your story, without turning it into a sermon.
Step 1: Focus on the story and perfect it, long before you worry about the themes.
This is the single greatest failing of most stories with messages. The writer is so focused on them, that they forget the medium altogether. And as important as you think a message is, it is worthless if devoid of a concrete story. So craft your story around something tangible and solid—something that would be wonderful if there were no message whats

Advice to young and experienced animatorsWhat I have to say really comes from the bottom of my heart, so please read all of this.
Actually, whether you're a young animator trying to get into a MAP or even an experienced animator/director hosting one, what I have to say applies to both parties.
I see way too many comments on MAP calls and even Casting Calls in the VA community of young animators/actors complaining about the host not thinking they're not good enough to be in their project.
And do you know what?
The host is right.
You're not good enough.
That's why you didn't get in the project. Someone better came along.
But do you know what you can do?
Prove the fucker wrong.
Earlier today I saw the film Whiplash (it was absolutely incredible, go see it) and I'm going to paraphrase a lot from it while it's still in my memory. The main premise of the film was a boy in music college being pushed to his absolute limit by his insane teacher whose methods could be deemed abu
Setting Prices for Your ArtworkThere are few hard and fast rules when it comes to pricing artwork to sell. Why you ask? Well for one there are many variables that go into determining the cost of the artwork. It’s for that very reason that many artists (including myself in the past) sell themselves tremendously short. Another reason we as artists feel our palms getting sweaty when someone asks for a price to an artwork is because we feel as though we’re not being true artists if we accept money for our work. No, no no. Listen, I can tell you from experience that the “starving artist” lifestyle is waaaay less glamorous than it sounds when your pantry is bare for reals. There is absolutely nothing shameful about getting paid for honest work, so don’t try to make yourself feel guilty or ashamed of turning a profit. On the other hand, artists fall into the mire of not even knowing how to price individual artworks. This confusion only gets worse when you look at the price tags i
