CONCEPT OF: HaloWelcome to our periodic spotlight feature where we take a look at the concept art and design of a game or film. The intent here is to get the creative juices flowing, remind people what's out there and what's being done, and to not lose sight of the quality of professional work. We can also discuss what works and maybe what doesn't, what you dig, or what you DONT dig.CONCEPT OF: Halo5 years ago in Personal More Like This

These are all things that will forever be burned into our minds as the green space marine with the orange visor, the naked purple AI chick with numbers running up her body, the squealing cannon fodder at our feet, the stalwart 4-part-mandible aliens, the purple dolphin-like spaceships, and the most badass green ATV ever with a bullet

No Excuses: 'They Tell Me I Can't'Fuck 'em. What the hell do they know anyways?No Excuses: 'They Tell Me I Can't'3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now I know thats a little bit harsh language but this excuse really pisses me off. I'm not angry at the person who uses the excuse "they tell me I can't," I'm pissed at the people who tells the person they can't. Seriously, anyone who says you can't do it is making up shit and doesn't know what they're talking about.
I've heard many different variations of this excuse. "THEY" can be your mother, father, brother, sister, best friend, teacher. "They" can be people on forums, or professionals you've talked to that have their head so far up their ass they forgot what it was like to start out. But no matter who "They" are, the fact of the matter is they don't know anything about what you're trying to do. So what qualifies them to judge if you can do it or not?
What reasons did they give you to back up this wild claim of "you can't do it?" Was it because You don't have the education? the skills? Is
CyberbullyingIt's 3 AM and I literately cannot sleep. This is perhaps the most stressful subject I have typed in deviantART, and I don't expect people to agree with me, but.. here I go.Cyberbullying2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The internet is a place where one can freely speak whatever they want. But how free should it be? You can easily type up horrible things about a person and it probably won't affect you. But you know what? This is wrong. Very wrong.
Why do I say this you may ask? Well...
I took part of cyberbullying. And I know, there will be lots of people looking down at me for this, but I will bravely stand here and say the truth.
Now, I didn't necessarily troll or drew something that's downright terrible, but I did gossip. I gossiped around someone's back, and picked on them for being different. My friends and I thought that by picking on one person, it would be funny or "cool".
But do you know how wrong this truly is? This is VERY wrong. It does NOT make you cool or f
Regarding unemployment / Freelance *UPDATED*From the polycount discussion over here: http://www.polycount.com/forum/showthread.php?t=113798Regarding unemployment / Freelance *UPDATED*3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get the sense that some HR people (& immigration) look at 'not working inhouse' as being unemployed - mainly because it's so hard to prove exactly how long you were *actually* working on freelance.
If I was to look at it that way, then I've been unemployed for periods of up to 3 years.
I got over worrying about money and financial problems back when I had little to no money to worry about - and I think that's helped me to no end. Life seemed to be stuck on replay when I was in that frame of mind i.e. creating stuff because I HAD to get a job. Years would go by, and it never ever worked out for me, somehow I'd always end up in exactly the same place until I put in the time to find something I enjoyed, and simply worked at that no matter where it took me.
I have friends on my list who have been without a job or freelance work for ages, but they are also the same guys who don't have

Phil Fish Hacked
Phil Fish, the creator of FEZ, is pretty much universally hated by people online. Recently he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, creator of Depression Quest, who was herself under fire from internet thought police for “corrupting” games journalism’s integrity by sleeping with journalists to get favorable reviews of her game (allegations which later proved to be untrue). Because he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, Phil found himself under a massive internet attack, wherein hackers compromised his SSI, passwords, Polytron's PayPal account, and other sensitive data.
In the wake of the attack, Phil Fish is now selling off the rights to FEZ and to Polytron. He left with this rather depressing twitter message: “I
DON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah BradleyDon't go to art schoolDON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah Bradley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change.
I'VE HAD IT.
I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.
I have a diploma from the best public art school in the nation. Prior to that I attended the best private art school in the nation. I'm not some flaky, disgruntled art graduate, either. I have a quite successful career, thankyouverymuch.
But I am saddened and ashamed at art schools and their blatant exploitation of students. Graduates are woefully ill-prepared for the realities of being professional artists and racked with obscene amounts of debt. By their own estimation, the cost of a four year education at RISD is $245,816. As way
IMPROVE YOUR VISUAL NARRATIVE by Jon SchindehetteJon was kind enough to answer a question I sent him, and tore a part (in a good way) what I considered at the time to be one of my best pics.IMPROVE YOUR VISUAL NARRATIVE by Jon Schindehette2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Does your illustration lack narrative? Do you even really understand the concept of a visual narrative, and how it impacts your work? Let’s dig into this subject today on ArtOrder…
Alex Elykov asked me the following question:
“I personally find it very hard to create a coherent and interesting narrative in my illustrations. I don’t think that I have a problem with drawing or painting individual elements, but i find it hard to combine them together in order to create a coherent story/narrative in each image. So my question is; How can I improve the visual narrative in my images?”

Ninja Turtles by lukekeith
The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin
Why a Cowboy-Samurai?I'm getting asked a lot about why I changed the original character for Heilig/Holy from a Knights Templar to a cowboy-samurai, its because our original writer disappeared on us and we didn't have the script for about half a year. So me and Blaz decided to rewrite the whole thing because it was easier than trying to remember all the work we did previously. As a result, we decided on a futuristic, post apocalyptic industrial revolution theme with the name "Holy" acting as a metaphor (As in "Holy" land or holy "riddled with holes from gunfire")and if you want to know about the whole swastika thing, do some research. We are also basing it heavily on Christian mythology as well as other religious mythology mashed together.Why a Cowboy-Samurai?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To further reinforce the decision on a cowboy-samurai, melding of The Wild West and Feudal Japan is quite a popular subject even if the setting also takes place in the future or has Cattle Punk elements. I believ

You may name your mech concept, the corporation that develop the mech and the backdrop story of the corporation.
The mech should stand approximately 10 feet or 3 metres, show the size of the mech in a simple way. Keep in mind that each part of the mech will be interchangeable with other mech parts as featured in Armored Core.
Remember each entry consists of 2 .JPG or 2 PNG file both in black and white. One file should include a front, back and side concept art and the second should be the same as the front, back and side entry including labeling explaining where everything is.
*There may be 1 or 2 eyes. (The eye actually house the camera of the mech)
*For the ears section of the head make sure to create an attachable section left and right for radar parts, make them discrete.
* Connection for head
* Left and right connection slot for arms.
* Towards the top rear of the core make discrete left and right connection slots for back weapons attachments and such.
R.I.P. PockyIt's really hard for me to tell you this but Pocky passed away about 12 hours ago, at 1 pm Friday Oct 25th. I lost my balance in the colony cage and accidentally step on him who was behind me. He didn't die instantly. I thought he wouldn't. He could still fly and when I put him on my hand he had started panting. When I brought him inside my house, he had a fit then died.R.I.P. Pocky2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I can't stop crying now. I feel so horrible and hate myself. I miss him so much I can't stop crying and calling his name. It's so hard to accept his death. I can still feel him everywhere. Everything in my house reminds me of him. I can't sleep on my bed because I usually snuggled with him there before we went to sleep. I can't believe he had to go away like this. I feel so guilty no matter what I try to think of, no matter what my husband said. I can't even cry as harder as I want because he will be mad.
I don't know if Pocky knew his time would be up soon. But this month he wanted to cuddle more with me. He usually a

You know it's out there: the dreaded smell of unwashed bodies. At Sakura-Con, it's called H.O.B.O.: Horrible Otaku Body Odor. We here at Sakura-Con have declared the convention a "No H.O.B.O. Zone." To enforce that, we have provided a checklist that will help you keep that smell to an absolute minimum, and your con experience will be much more pleasant. Please remember to bring these things with you!
The Top Twenty Items Forgotten by Convention Attendees (a Checklist)
1. Personal towel. (We know the hotel provides them, but if you're sharing a room with several people, this guarantees you your very own towel. Also, if you plan on using a lot of makeup for a costume or dying your hair and use hotel towels, you will be charged a hefty fee for damaging hotel property. Please bring your own towels if you plan to do this.)

A few days back, Autodesk released Sketchbook Pro 6, and I think this is the version that's going to make a lot of people who have YET to experience Sketchbook Pro in full, or haven't really given the past versions a chance, switch over to making it their digital drawing software of choice; heck, even their PAINTING software of choice.
We still have the cleverly-designed user interface, that makes it easy on the eyes and mind when we're brainstorming and sketching. With the handful of new tools introduced, we still have a clutter-free drawing environment, and man, there's some awesome tools this time around. I'll go down the list:
