Commented on His Patient by Madremonte.

His PatientTime had begun to reverse the moment I had commenced my architectural research.
The landscape I wandered through reflected senescence. Imminent change had encased it all in the past. The stillness was less perceptible than the susurration of footfall on a burnished body of deciduous ash.
An ascendant entranceway guided me to a derelict institute. I halted. The colossal presence loomed before me. The pinnacles of the austere façade summited to the tumultuous sky.
A long period of external research had passed before I could proceed in my progress. Now was I enable to study the delitescent phenomena within the edifice. A breath of warm air evaporated from my mouth. In a deliberate pace I continued onward.
I espied a brass plaque embedded in a plinth, its eroded letters into the foundation, read: “Saint George Hospital”.
A decade after its closure, cases of disappearance began to grow, the exact circumstances remain unclear. Scans of the designated search areas did no

"This was good. I liked it but a little less where the POV switched from 1st to 3rd. It doesn't work for this as well as the introduction. The intro isn't needed. I think your provide enough info in the actual story that makes that 1st paragraph void. Better to get the reader into action than to delay them with an introduction. Some stories need them, this one doesn't.

As for the POV switching. I would like to see those paragraphs were you went into 3rd back in 1st. There are some times when that sort of things works this isn't one of those times. I think if one were to go into a 3rd person POV and that majority of the narrative was told in 1st, the best time to use it would be if the character perspective switch. Say for example if you switch to the killer perspective and wrote that in 3rd person would make sense to me. For this, it would be a stronger piece if written completely in 1st.

A Talk             Mien’s former mentor scrutinized him over the lenses of his spectacles waiting for the younger priest’s opinion on his charge sitting on an infirmary cot bleeding. However, Mien was a little lost for words.
    Brother Hickory brow rose. “Nothing?
    “Nothing,” answered Mien shrugging.
    He knew Theris had been too quiet lately. It didn’t surprise him that something happened, it was just what had happened.
    “My, my, you do have firm hold of that temper of yours now,” he said looking a bit disappointed. “You no longer having that blustering initial reaction should make me proud but your entertaining  ability to get tongue tied as you foam at the mouth with rage will be missed.”
     Mien glowered at him.  “I’m sorry I’m
Vee by LadyAnder Resolution pt 1Of all the men in the Dias Brotherhood, my mentor Mien was the one you didn’t want to raise the king’s son. He was one of those given to the Brotherhood to straighten out. It wasn’t that he wasn’t trouble as he was troubled. From what I was told, he was shy, anxious, and surrounded himself in a shell created from fear. He had hit an emotional bottom and completely shattered into pieces. His breakdown started with the death of his father. It was made worse by his swine of stepfather marrying his mother and stupid idiot of a then stepbrother being a bully. It all came to a head when he tried to kill his stepbrother.
Mercy kept him from prison. The Pit wasn’t a place for someone his age and he would have been killed in the first week there.  Many thought it was just his mother using her influence to get him spared. It was part of the reason. The other part was Brother Hickory. The man had his fair share of rebellious boys given to him to straighten out.

Commented on Blink by EricAMBM.

BlinkSurely you cannot say that I’m the one to blame. I know what it looks like. I know what it SEEMS like. Yes, perhaps it was my hand that acted, my body that moved. But as always, there is so much more beyond what we see, a horde of things unknowable and undetectable that work together to control the world we pretend to know. Inside every shadow is a mind, and behind everything we see there are a thousand unseen shadows. So, the actions seem to be my own, but the guilt is not.
The first time it happened was on a Saturday night. I had been out late, and returned to my home and the ones who lived here. At the time, I had no idea what would happen just minutes after I walked through the door.
When I got there I walked into the kitchen for water. There, the woman met me. She turned on the lights, and the brightness along with the white walls and cabinets burned my eyes.
She started talking to me. Well, not talking. Yelling, nagging, screaming, but not talking. She was  angry at me

" Pros: I like horror so I was excited to see how your story would turn out.
You're very descriptive in detail when it come to writing. It provides a vivid
visualize of each scene almost as though it were happening as a movie. Also,
I like how each character emits such strong emotion toward each other especially
that of the main character's and the way he describes his family using "that" rather than
by there name or titles. I saw the black figure lingering around him
as some sort of repressed rage or as a metaphor of the darkness that lives
within the hearts of man. While browsing through the comments I also
saw that you write Creepypasta's as well. It definitely had that familiar
Pasta like air to me while I was reading. I like listening to Pastas in my
free time so I hope to see more work from you. c:

"Regarding the car, it seemed to me like a symbol for the decadence of the narrator's marriage ("an old, battered red thing I bought with the woman long ago"), considering that it blocked the exit for the female figure that was trying to escape the fire. The train felt like something similar, almost as if he bought a no-return ticket to darkness after ditching the marriage-car. Supporting this idea would be the fact that the car appeared to have no headlights and only the moon could guide the narrator; adding the assumption that a passenger on a train doesn't drive, just sits and waits to be taken to their destination.

PrimaveraResplandecía el orbe que domina el azul, con cálidos dedos acariciaba el paraje y de luz colmaba los corazones, pues era el primer día de la estación. Fuera de la casa pusieron pie el padre y su niña, más atractivo era el patio, de nuevas plantaciones atiborrado, que la oscura casita donde sus lechos guardaban.
Corrieron el hombre y la hija por la hierba, tropezó y cayó ella, mas el padre su mirada no le dedicó; arrobado estaba él observando los sépalos, ligeramente abiertos, de una blanca corona que en el jardín pronto reinaría.
-¡Mira!- mandó el padre, aún con la vista fija- ¡Ya va a florecer!- se arrimó a él la chica, exaltada de avidez por presenciar la maravilla que se le señalaba- ¡Qué mágica es la primavera!
-¡Magia!- la excitación de la pequeña rebosaba su alma y sobre el cuello del padre se abalanzó- Papi, ¿plantaste tú esas flores?

La espadaDetuvo su andar al verlo, sobre un tocón descansaba él, espada en mano, de rítmicas caricias a la hoja colmando. Aproximóse la muchacha, silentes pasos dio con el garbo acostumbrado hasta que pocos faltaran para junto a él hallarse, fija la mirada en el filo ruborizóse ella. Desde la guarnición, el pomo ignorando, deslizaba el joven lubricado un trozo de paño hasta alcanzar la punta de la hoja y, habiendo llegado, emprendía el recorrido de vuelta en sucesiones vigorosas.
-¿Pensando en algo?- picardía en los dientes llevaba la chica.
Sobresaltado el hombre la cabeza volvió, torpemente envainó e irguióse antes de contestar.
-En cosa ninguna más que la que frente a mí ahora se planta- retribuyó mordaz el joven.
-¿Es esto lisonjeo?- beso de hielo en la propia espina advirtió ella, mas la compostura mantuvo.
-En absoluto, querida. No es más que la verdad.
-Entonces, ¿por qué has env

How To Nominate


We need nominations of deviants who you think should be featured! Send us a note with the subject "Nomination" and the following information:
    :star: Name of Deviant

    :star: Links to the deviations they commented. (This is great way to give back to a user who has given you an exceptional comment!
:bulletgreen: You can suggest anyone and everyone (except yourself ;P) at any time and include as many nominations as you want in one note.
:bulletgreen: The news feature occurs once every week and all nominations will be taken into account.
:bulletgreen: If your nomination isn't featured immediately, it may still be featured in a future news article!

3wyl, posting on behalf of ProjectComment
:heart: Seeking sign-ups for Tagline 30! 5 slots remaining :heart:


:star: Note: Comment Tag is for visual art pieces only.  For constructive comments on literature, please visit Targeted Commenting or Commenter System.  Thanks for your cooperation! :love: :star:



A new round of the Comment Tag Game! You can find the previous one here along with all of the previous participants' comments.

Do you ever feel like people are only commenting on the first piece they see? Would you like more people to actually look through your gallery? Are you willing to take a look at another deviant's gallery? Then join us for a round of Comment Tag!

Information

:bulletblue: Here is how it works:

Each TagLine will be 7 players long and will have a requirement to start with (for example, "blue") so the first player in the line knows what they are looking for.

:bulletblue: How does a player tag?

Player 1 goes through Player 2's gallery looking for an artwork or literature piece that has something with the starting requirement in it.

Player 1 leaves a comment on the deviation and puts "TAG!" at the bottom of the comment with a new requirement. This is the signal for Player 2 to look through Player 3's gallery for something with the new requirement in it.

Player 2 then comments and leaves a new requirement for player 3.

This goes on all the way through the 7 players. Player 7 leaves a comment for Player 1 and thus completes the TagLine.


Additional Notes:

:bulletblue: Post your TAG (new requirement) as well as the link to the deviation you commented on in the comments on this blog.
FAQ #14: How do I create a link to a specific comment?

:bulletblue: Please try to do your tag within 3 days, or at least notify the admin (CameronKobe) if there are delays.

:bulletblue: Please keep requirements broad and general so that players have a better chance at finding something to comment on. (examples: Blue rather than royal blue. Dress, rather than polkadot dress. Flower instead of Sunflower.)


So what are you waiting for? Just reply to this blog to sign up! :la:

Feel free to ask any questions as well!

FAQ
  • What if you can't find the requirement? Then comment on a random piece and tag the player... the point is that you at least put an effort into looking for the requirement.
  • Can we sign up for more than one TagLine? YES! You have to leave a separate comment each time you want to play again, so that I have an accurate count. It's first come first serve for each TagLine.
  • What do we do if we are the last in line? Find your requirement in player 1's gallery and leave a comment as usual. Instead of tagging the next player, when you comment here with a link to the deviation, please add a Tag and I will use it to begin another line :)





:bulletblue::bulletred::bulletpurple:TAGLINES:bulletyellow::bulletgreen::bulletorange:

Please make sure that comments are as constructive as possible.

Please also note that it may take a while to get to you in the line...we just ask that you do your tag when it's your turn within three days. Thanks!

Happy tagging everyone! :la:
:iconfelladanceplz: (March 27, 2015): Due to the large number of successfully completed taglines in Comment Tag #4, older taglines are now being archived.

Commented on Asuna Yuuki (Sword Art Online) by BlazingFire123.

Asuna Yuuki (Sword Art Online) by BlazingFire123
"First and foremost, your lineart is too jagged and wobbly. You need to have line confidence and you can achieve this by taking a piece of paper and practicing your lines again and again. The ideal line would be one that is sharp, crisp and tapered to the sides. This is done by varying your pen pressure throughout the stroke.

Secondly, the colouring is haphazard, and shows numerous white splotches. It might be the issue of the paper which you have been using, but looking at your stroke lines, they are very far apart and occasionally overlap, causing the white splotches. Read up on shading techniques and pick up cross-hatching or some other shading pattern. It'll look a lot better then. In addition, the colours seem to bleed in to the background and the sword. Please use an eraser.

Thirdly, the hands. They are one of the hardest portion of the human anatomy to draw, so I urge you to frequently practice on this. Her hands seem to lack joints and her fingers cylindrical in shape, which isn't really the case with actual hands. Look at your hand as reference as you draw.

Walk Among the Waste Chapter 1
    Less had been wandering for as long as he could remember.He had long since forgotten the reason for his endless journey for it had been an extraordinary amount of time since he had seen another person. Through several encounters with bandits he wondered if he wanted to. And as a result of these experiences he decided that it would be best if he stuck to traveling along ariver. As far as he knew it was December and luckily it had been an unusually warm season. This allowed him to sail along the river with particular ease. The risk of freezing to death from the water was still at the top of his list of concerns.
    It was late in the afternoon when he saw the faint silhouette of a town in the distance. He pulled his boat up under a nearby bridge and climbed ashore. Less began to walk along a snow covered road as he made his way into the

" First of all, this is an interesting short piece. It seems to have a lot of potential hidden within the lines and a lot of complex backstory waiting to be revealed. However, it felt a bit lacking.
That feeling was due to the vague nature of the world and the calamity that took it down. I would really like to know more details as to why there are no people and what kind of disaster of apocalypse. It'd help you greatly to expand on this point. It'd also allow your reader to relate to Less.

Your description is vivid, which creates a nice visual scenery for the place, but you're contradicting yourself a little. like this point here:
As far as he knew it was December and luckily it had been an unusually warm season
vs Less began to walk along a snow covered road
When you say unusually warm season, i'd imagine sun, mild rain, but not snow. Snow would be a normal cold december wouldn't it? That really irked me. Is he used to lower temperatures than snowy days? Especially that a few lines later you mention looking for a place for the cold winter.

A guide to breaking Earth."Sir, sir, please do not touch that!" The panicked man jumped between the hand and the button. "Please sir, with all due respect. No touching allowed, not even for you. I understand it's your first day and you're curious, but please. This room is very delicate!" 
"Aww, Grim, what's the worst that can happen? Why are you named Grim anyway, you look too cheerful for grim." The young man shoved his hands in his pockets and whistled a carefree tone as he walked around the busy room.
Men and women in formal clothing ran around. Papers flew from one side to the other and a lot of buttons blinked as a large monitor, which occupied an entire wall, displayed an image of the world's map. Different numbers flickered on top of the screen, while a control panel filled with weird-looking symbols lined the bottom.
"Is that Earth Grimmy? I never knew it was this small."
"This is just a map sir. Look Jerry, if I can call you that, why don't you go back upstairs? I'm sure you're needed."

"First of all, you are really good with watercolors. I tend to mess them up a lot. If you think your black shades are messy, be glad you haven't seen mine xD To me it really does look like the river is reflecting the trees so I'd say you did an exceptional job at conveying the intended message.

How ever, a river is a water that is not standing still, it is flowing, some pretty fast too. There tend to be tiny "waves" in it that make the reflection in the water look a lot messier and lot more rough. Such as here feelgrafix.com/data_images/out… Unless it is a lake. Lakes are usually clear and more or less reflect things like a mirror. In your image, the water does not reflect everything crystal clear, so it is believable that it is a river, though don't be afraid to make the tiny waves more visible like here www.treeshark.com/BlogPosts/Wa… - the vaves are not illustrated as strongly as they would be in oil painting (www.jeffreysmithart.com/home/w…) but you can still notice the waves, which are... basically the only thing that I feel are missing from your drawing.

"So, instead, let me say a few things about the design of the image. One thing I noticed is that you are using the frame as a means to create depth, but it might be a bit subtle. If some other part than the lower part of the character's body would reach outside the frame, it might be even stronger. Otherwise, with the lighter background works well.
The red logo is interesting. Together with the character, it looks like a superhero is taking a day off, enjoying some coffee from his own merchandise cup. Too bad I can't see all of it. One thing: I'm not sure if the head should have that much red around it, it almost looks like the colour is bleeding through from the background.
Good job on the lights! The multiple light sources are very nicely implemented.

" I really like this character, she's really cute. I like the simplicity of the design and the cartoony style.
The look of this work feels very soft even if the line tends to be rough sometimes. I would probably suggest to work a bit with rubber eraser only to smooth it where it looks more sketchy. Don't be afraid to redraw, expecially when using only graphite... with colours it may be a bit more difficult.
I like the fact that you didn't shade much, but kept different tones of gray for each area. It adds to the comic style of the drawing and it would be odd for it to be any different.

"With leather, reflections are more dull. however, i'd really like to explain a little about blending. I like that you're trying to show that the fire IS reflecting onto the clothing, but the edges of the reflection are a little harsh. Try using a lighter brush opacity and working up a blending method.. you can use an eye dropping tool to pick up part of the colour and keep blending that way. And also be mindful of the whiter highlights. Since the fire isn't very white, you don't want to over exaggerate any lighting that isn't really there. And if you look at fire, and how it reflects onto a person -  you can see that away from the fire (and without an alternate light source) an object or subject will have little to no lighting at all. So consider making use of darker values of the colours you use. Don't be afraid of blending very dark with very light. And i know its hard with fabric to understand the use of light and dark values with folds and gathered textures. I'd really recommend studying a little bit of how light sources affect the way light is cast onto folded/gathered textiles, just to get a general idea when you see a bent arm with leather etc. The stock gallery here on deviant art has plenty to use as a reference. So I really do recommend using references to get some kind of idea there. [...]"

Gem Fusion by K-osWolf Memoirs of a Geisha should be BANNEDA/N: This is an opinion piece. If you disagree with me, state why in the comments, but no flaming.
Can't believe I wasted my money on that crap (it was only $1 when I bought it in Canada, but even $1 is a big deal for a Vietnamese like me). Can't believe I actually liked that crap.
So what did I do? Yesterday, I tore off every single page of that "book" and dumped the mess into the bin. That was worth it.
Actual rant time. Here are the reasons why I believe MoaG is worse than Twilight and should be pulled off of bookshelves everywhere.
1. Cultural Appropriation
The book reminds me about so-called "Vietnamese restaurants" in Thailand. One claims to serve "Hanoi pho" but Vietnamese people from Hanoi can't eat a single item off their menus. All dishes are modified to fit the appetite of Thai people. I'm not sure about you, but this just screams a huge "CULTURAL APPROPRIATION" to me. Arthur Golden did the same with his book, stating himself that MoaG was written
