Admiring Harry Potter (opposite of making fun of)
Harry Potter is not exactly irreplaceable.
Harry Potter is hardly a classic.
Harry Potter doesn't hold a candle to greater works of fiction.
Harry Potter was just a lucky score.

I disagree.
My name is Makingfunofstuff, and I have read all the Young Adult Fantasy books in my library. You will not find another book like Harry Potter. You will not.
Let's talk about opinions.
Whether or not we enjoy something is an opinion. The intrinsic quality of an object is not.

So here are the top 5 qualities that readers want and need to see in your story's villain.
Quality 1: Your villain should be a dynamic, true-to-life character.
Remember, we are talking villains here, not monsters. And unlike a monster, a villain should be a person. This means that no matter what race, gender, or even s

  • Listening to: Take Flight- Lindsey Stirling
Well folks, it's finished, last winter a dear friend of mine agreed to film a time-lapse video of me drawing some original art... she is one of the most patient people I've ever met as it took a little over 4 hours to film...

but we did it! my favorite parts are the ones where you can see the big red mark on my left arm.
 For those who are brave enough or actually give a damn, please take a look... [link]

I am a traditional artist studying animation and gaming. My specialties include concept art, character design, comics and storyboards.
I have worked with programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, Maya, Flash, Flipbook and UDK, but I still do most of my work by hand.

I have an Associates of the Arts in Animation and gaming. I am currently looking for work and am available for freelance.

I am also a black belt.
