Dr. Warren Vidic: If the deaths of a few people, evil people, no more, no less, could save the lives of thousands more, well. It seems a small sacrifice.

Don't let anyone belittle you or your work!I've been catching up a lot on dA since I got back and have been a bit surprised by some of the things going on. I've noticed that some of the wonderful artists I love and admire are being pushed aside for some ... interesting works. I won't get into a debate on this, at the end of the day, this is just my opinion. But how can a quick sketch that has been edited in photoshop to add some sparkle, outrank something that someone has put 30+ hours into and is pencil perfection? I don't understand the world anymore. Anyway, I just wanted to say I still appreciate your work and dedication .. for what that's worthDon't let anyone belittle you or your work!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The next thing I want to say, and this is based on observation and on a conversation or two I've been having. Have you ever felt belittled or put down in your art because someone tells you that 'it's not the right way'? I have some issues with this and felt the need to vent a little bit, so I'll list my wafflings below

Why Must I Go On, God?Sometimes...I find myself alone, wondering why I am still alive. It may seem cowardly to know that I do not want to stay here on this wicked earth...that I would rather be in Heaven with my Savior.Why Must I Go On, God?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was born again to fight, to war against the wicked powers in this world, standing at my Savior's side, showing the way to the Son to those lost in the darkness. But sometimes...a lot of the time...I find myself wounded in battle, weary and broken down, and wanting to surrender to that same darkness and let it consume me. The constant battle inside my own soul leaves me begging God to take my life, to let me have some rest, some peace. I ask Him, 'Why must I go on, Lord?'
Then I am reminded by someone I know (and even those I do not know) why I must remain here. Though the battle gets fierce, I have strength in my God, if I run to Him, Who is my shelter. When I cannot fight anymore, Jesus comes to the rescue, dressed for battle, sword bared for combat against the demonic forces that seek my
Being a victim of art theft could get you banned!I shit you not.Being a victim of art theft could get you banned!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I dont like to get involved in politics or online drama, but blatant, unapologetic art theft is a pet peeve of mine.
I dont generally condone sitting around ignoring injustice, but theft happens. It always has, it always will. If you dont want something stolen, dont make it public, or at least dont publicize anything worth stealing. If it does get stolen, report it and move on, right? Since Ive never been a victim of it myself its never been more than a passing irritation when I hear about it happening to someone else. Then DeviantArt comes along and makes me get involved.
Ive seen and read about several cases of DA stupidity, and more than a few of them revolved around their handling of art thieves on their own website. Then I stumble on some posts that have all since been deleted. At first it doesnt look like much more than a butthurt rant, but after doing some digging I found out that the person labeled "Mary" stole someones artwork, then got them banned from Devi

"I've mentioned this before, however, that was a long time ago when I had less of a following and perhaps less of an impact.
When you tell a fellow artist "Oh I wish I was as good as you!" or say things like "You're so talented I'm just going to stop making art/killmyself/cry", you don't flatter them. At best, you're merely raising them up by putting yourself down and they don't want that. At worst, you are making them very uncomfortable or actively distressing them. Even if you think you're joking, remember that this person probably hears this very frequently. It's a sore point. They may have some kind of emotional response to it beyond irritation.
So, let's go over the basics:
Wow, you've got a lot of skill!
You inspire me to work harder to become as good as you are.
Oh, you're so talented, I wish I was as talented as you!
You're so talented, I give up.
Remember that your words have an effect.
Yes, thank you! W

I didn't bother with Spotify at first because I figured it had only mainstream music, but it actually has a huge variety. It does have mainstream music, but it also has loads of obscure/indie songs (yes, I'm a hipster. :iconhipstermikeyplz It's an excellent place to discover new music. These are some of its features:
1. You can make playlists with any songs you want and post them on Facebook or Tumblr or share them with a link. You can also search for playlists to find new music.
2. There are several applications you can download that offer more playlists, musician info, etc. (available for free in the program, so you don't have to download them from outside sources.) My favorite is Sifter, which works similar to Pandora: you type in a song and it gives you several similar songs. I've discovered great music that way.
3. You can read biographies of most bands and musicians, and find similar artists.
4. Like I said, it has incredible variety. It

How to Protect a Dragon Conqueror, Chapter TwoThe bellows hummed like a dormant bear as I reached behind the tongs for the green tunic dangling on the wall. When I was littler, Gobber had taught me the first rule about making weapons: always have a spare outfit. His clothes were decked with burns and scorches from flying sparks, and mine had suffered no less.How to Protect a Dragon Conqueror, Chapter Two2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The tunic was snug around the chest as I pulled it on; little threads were snapping. I made a face and kept pulling it over; it wouldn't budge. Must have been ages since I had left it on the hook, since the last dragon attack.
When I resurfaced with new clothes, Toothless was still moaning. His eyes stayed shut, although the lids twitched. Each Viking woman cut around a single arrowhead before teasing it out of the skin. They would then wipe down the area with a soaked cloth and Toothless would grunt. The surreal sight held me.
"You can gawk later." Gobber used his hook hand to hoist my shirt up. The sleeves tore. "Well, all for the best," he said, cutting a slit of shoulder
How to Protect a Dragon Conqueror, Chapter ThreeDad's off-key singing seemed to curdle the air around us. Terrible Terrors squeaked in accompaniment. The larger dragons had fled to the Academy; good thing Toothless was locked inside. Tuffnut and Ruffnut only took their fingers out of their ears to punch each other quickly. We approached the mead hall.How to Protect a Dragon Conqueror, Chapter Three2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"This is awful," I said in a fascinated voice. My father could sing well, but he had even made an effort to abandon his heavy Scottish accent so that his voice came out as haunted and brooding.
"I'll say." Astrid winced, covering her scratch. "It scares Vikings because they fear Thor striking down the singer with lightning."
"Like any of us really believes that will happen," Snotlout scoffed. Dad then launched into Siegfried walking into the Ring of Fire to wake Brunhilde, screeching high notes. Snotlout covered his ears and shut his eyes tight.
"Odin forgive us, Odin forgive us, we mean no disrespect," Fishlegs was muttering under his breath. I rolled my eyes and marched cl

How to Protect a Dragon Conqueror, Chapter FourDad stood in the door of our hut, drumming his foot. I stopped when he looked up.How to Protect a Dragon Conqueror, Chapter Four2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hiccup. Come in." He ushered me inside and closed the door behind him.
"Dad, if this is about Mildew's roof, I've had dragon patrols checking it. We've kept the Gronkles and Terrible Terrors from roosting-"
He cut me off with a two-armed hug, lifting me off the ground. The wind in my lungs escaped to the safety of the hut.
"Thank Odin you're not hurt," he whispered fiercely. "I wouldn't say this in front of the others, but thank Odin. Alvin was boasting about how he had shot you down."
"Dad," I gasped, "I can't breathe."
He put me down. I took steady breaths.
"Tell me how Toothless got shot."
It was an abbreviated prologue to an epic tragedy. The fire flickered in the corner. Dad walked and poked the embers with his ax.
"It's worse than I thought," he said. "A great madness has fallen on the islands."
"Did you get any information out of the Outcasts?"
"Not until we beat it out of them; they didn't fear d

I rolled in bed, trying to recall the unsettling dream I had. My hand clutched the hunting knife Dad had given me; if it had lacked a sheath, I would have born scars. The metal leg clanked. Toothless! I had to check on him, to see if he had missed me. I tiptoed out of bed, not sure if my father was home. Slipped on a spare shirt drying over the fire, one of Dad's burlap tunics. It sagged to the knees.
The torches had gone out outside; I could barely see my hands in front of me. The mead hall glowed with oily torches. Dad's voice came out muffled from the hall.
I grimaced and walked away.
In hindsight, I should have immediately gone to the mead hall, where my father was undoubtedly impressing the consequences of helping the Outcasts and devising a strategy by means which to understand siege. It was the only lighted building,

The collective fan community sigh of relief that a female director has been chosen to bring the Amazonian Goddess to life on the big screen has been echoing across the web ever since Monday’s announcement that Michelle McClaren had won that coveted crown.

Before I found DA, I frequented many art sites that were interesting, but difficult to navigate. When I found DA, even eight years ago, DA was EASY to navigate and an ART focused site.
A visitor could visit different types of gallery's, with different concepts of art. Finding other artists with unique taste in art is possible. IF you are a visitor, TRY the search button, and look for something, you are likely to find it. Unique INDEED.
When I first started posting to my gallery, I started off with simple images that "others" might find interesting.
Then I started posting art I enjoyed. Then I discovered the joy of interaction on DA!

Fullmetal Kingdom VS Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?Fullmetal Kingdom VS Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I was working on a drawing of Bebop & Rocksteady for the 2012 series when I started thinking about the earlier picks I did about Fullmetal Kingdom (Kingdom Hearts and Fullmetal Alchemist) crossing over with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I was still working on the Fullmetal Kingdom story/reboot/crossover, but I wanted to do more for the fans, like if I could actually try making up at least ONE new crossover story where Sora, Edward, and the rest of the Fullmetal Kingdom cast actually met/crossed paths with the 2012 TMNT characters.
I might wait for Crisis and a few others to appear in Fullmetal Kingdom and Bebop & Rocksteady to appear in the new Ninja Turtles series, but before anything could happen, I just wanted to ask the fans AND anyone else if this would be an epic and/or interesting crossover, or if it should be shelved for now. I'm open to a new group and/or role play if it's suggested.
