Halloween SpecialHunter Make-up TutorialHalloween Special4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Halloween is rapidly approaching, I think it's about time to reveal the secrets of my Hunter-make-up to you, my fellow zombies.
So, first things first:
What do you need/what did I use?
Kryolan Supracolor Greasepaint palette(TypeA) + a pale yellowish-grayish corpsish skintone (Guess it's been ivory or GIIIA)
Mastix Spirit Gum
loose transparent powder (got some from Grimas ages ago, so that certain product is not sold anymore and I can't link it )

Yo sobreviví al 31 de Diciembre y el 1 de Enero
Después de comerme 12 uvas, faltando poco para morir ahogada por las pepas, beber Champán mientras brincaba de silla en silla, corriendo el riesgo de resbalarme, salir de la casa con las maletas, pedir cuanto deseo se me viniera a la mente, bailar, comer como loca, beber, estar linda toda la noche para las fotos, aguantar a mis tíos locos y seguir viva, puedo decir que éste año será excelente [:D (Big Grin)]. (Y espero que así sea... Por si acaso todos vamos a hacer una cadena de oración pa que se cumpla xD.)
Cuando encuentre mis lápices y las hojas blancas, volveré a hacer dibujiños [:D (Big Grin)]. Tranquilos que no los voy a abandonar xD. (... Creo que ya todos notaron que el orden no es mi fuerte jijijiji).

As part of this, and looking forward 6 weeks (or so), I'll have even less time for art, so I'm finishing up what I have on my to-do list and going from there.
I have a New Year's Resolution I'm also trying to accomplish (applying for a juried site, illustrated ATC's) and I'm starting to gain the confidence to even try for it. I've asked for a portfolio review if the person is willing/able, and I'm awaiting to hear back.
Other than that, I've been alright, and I hope everyone else is too!
Mindjack is just as bad as you'd think.Mindjack isn't as bad as Ride to Hell.Mindjack is just as bad as you'd think.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
...but Ride to Hell is the lowest possible thing you could compare anything to. A game of Pong is better than Ride to Hell. Pong is simple, easy to understand, the plot doesn't insult you and it's fun.
Now, Mindjack, well...here's the thing. How it's SUPPOSED to work. The premise of the game is you can "jack" into other people's minds, taking them over. They or the ROBOTS in the game, anyhow. Or, if you shoot an enemy enough, a little icon pops up next to them that says "Mind Slave", meaning you send a floating ball of light to their head and VOILA! They turn into your ally, shooting at enemies, providing cover, etc, etc. You can even take over nearby civilians with Mind Hack! NO idea why ordinary schmoes have ASSAULT RIFLES at an airport, but...hey. It IS supposedly the future...by which I mean the year 2031. We're so close, people! IT COULD HAPPEN ANY DAY!
The game also tries to blend cooperative play via multiplayer and singleplayer by allowing

Final Fantasy XIII.
…for quite some time, actually. I played it for a little over FIVE HOURS.
And after playing that game for over 5 hours, I can definitely tell you what it's about. I'm pretty sure I can safely say I understand what the game is and what it ISN'T.
So what is the game about? I'll tell you. Along with how you should feel after buying and playing the game!
Yes. That's right. I told you I could tell you what the game is and what it isn't. What it ISN'T is GOOD! What it IS is a bloated, horrifying boiling pustule on the corpse of Final Fantasy. It's horrid. And I'm gonna break down just WHY it is as thoroughly and deeply and intelligently as I can.
So…everyone get ready. Time to get our game on…because THIS…is Final Fantasy XIII.
Here's the issue with the characters. This tale is supposed to be about a young woman named Lightning, who's real name is "Éclair". No, seriously. That's her rea

Character Feature: Shyla ShepardThe seemingly indomitable Shyla Shepard has lived a harsh and tragic past. After losing her family at sixteen to a bloody Batarian pirate attack on an Alliance colony, the young fighter joined the Alliance military only to lose her entire squad in a deadly thresher maw attack. In the years since, these early scars have forged a new identity out of the shattered ruins of the child whose family died on Mindoir. Known for her “tough but fair” approach, Shepard’s fight against the geth incursion broke new grounds for humanity when she became the first human Spectre on the galactic Council’s elite forces. But recent rumors have put in question Shepard’s loyalty to the Alliance forces. Our investigator setup an exclusive interview to delve into the truth behind the legend.Character Feature: Shyla Shepard4 years ago in Personal More Like This

And the worst part is...this is a Green Lantern comic. I pretty much grew UP on Green Lantern.What About The Black Skins, Green Lantern?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
And yet, unfortunately, Green Lantern's given me some of the most pretentious, preachy, head-up-its-ass, morality-play, talking-down-to-you storylines I have ever, EVER seen. And right outta the starting gate is a story run done by the the comic creating dynamic duo of Dennis O'Neil and Neal Adams. The story comes from the 70's, during the "Silver Age" of comics, when Hal Jordan was the Green Lantern.
Who's Hal Jordan? He's a test pilot. He used to be a military pilot but he got fired due to certain circumstances. One day he was flying a plane for his girlfriend's company, Ferris Aircraft, and what should he find? A crashed alien ship. He goes down to try and help the inhabitant because he is "without fear", and because of this admirable quality, the dying alien wi

My biggest regret this year was being too busy and not getting around the artist alley more and visiting people and panels. Thanks to everyone who visited, and sorry to everyone who I didn't visit (or visited only very briefly)! I feel really rude in retrospect. I also feel like I didn't really get to see much of what AX had to offer this year by confining myself to my table for most of it.
Next year I hope to have some sort of book-type product at my table, but knowing myself, I will probably either give up or miss deadlines again and you'll see a repeat of the first two images in the report.
MAN, I sure got tired of drawing myself.

Totally makes up for the whole chlorine gas thing.
We tried out something new at MWFF this year. No, not terrorism- Liz made the mistake of putting blank ornaments and metallic sharpie markers in my general area- and we discovered that we can create custom decorations. Out of our experimental eight-pack, we sold all but one:

Thoughts on our DeityI will probably delete this due to my horrible aversion to upsetting people, but I need to get some thoughts out through blog therapy.Thoughts on our Deity2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
I will preface this again by letting you know I am a Christian. It is hard to claim the label these days since many of the people whose philosophies I disagree with most also identify themselves as such in a much louder way. As much as labels are terrible and apply a slew of assumptions (I'm sure greatly suffered by my gun supporter liberal friends and my civil rights activist conservative friends), I'll tell you I am a liberal and a scientist as well.
Anyway, a thought has been making itself more prevalent in my mind the last few days and insisting I get it out in words. That thought is that we in the Judeo-Islamic-Christian faith(s?) are worshiping different gods. It is odd to write that since I have always thought otherwise, but it is not what it seems. These different gods are not defined by religious lines. No, this line is drawn within each

What does your username mean? Originally, I was known as "collegekid" which was a combination of the fact that I was a college student, but still a kid at heart. Oddly, I never took an art class in college....
I changed it to "FlyingPhoenixFire" as collegekid no longer fit since I had graduated years before. It is my handle on a few other sites, though I may change my name again to a pen name or some derivative of.

I need to build UP to explaining why the plot of Final Fantasy XIII is just so terrible. So instead I'm going to focus on the gameplay and it's mechanics to give you an idea of just how much this game fails. I'll say it. A bad game can have a terrible plot, but have really good GAMEPLAY and we gamers are willing to forgive much. Metroid: Other M's plot wasn't very well-liked. The GAMEPLAY was quite good, but the PLOT, however...notsomuch. So you could argue it was a mixed bag. Half and half.
But...Final Fantasy XIII?
I'll start with how YOU start. Specifically, on the road you start on. You get off a crashed train and onto a freeway.
Or rather...a hallway.
You will always, always, ALWAYS be on some kind of hallway in Final Fantasy XIII, no matter what environment
