Art trades maybe perhaps.I've been drawing a lot recently, but it's mostly been Detrah and Tydii's fursona or some other characters from her.Art trades maybe perhaps.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I'd maybe like to take couple of art trades, to get something else to draw too. `w´ But I'm scared because I've usually been so slow with them.
So! If you'd like to have an art trade with me, please comment here with a link to the character you'd like me to draw. Then I'll secretly sketch the ones that I like huehue, and after that I'll contact you about the trade. That way I have at least started my part, so I hopefully won't get too slow or lazy. Plus I get to sketch in peace without pressure.
I prefer drawing animals, but they don't have to be dogs or wolves. n__n
BUT I MAKE NO PROMISES about how many trades I'll do, or if I'm going to do them at all. ´A` Snif.

I'd like to clarify some things. If you want to use my concepts in non-profitable way – don't ask for my permission every time. Just remember that 90% of all my concepts in the gallery are commercial. And the companies owning the copyrights wouldn't be happy to see their games' concepts in some other projects. If you don't infringe the copyright, use them. If you want a commercial use, make sure you tell me about that.
Also I don't sell final works, because in most cases they have been already sold.
As for the job offers, I don't take single orders. Offers I can consider include PC and
game console, mostly in Sci-fi genre. I don't consider any other offers.
Thanks for your attention!

Let's just go over what I posted yesterday: I voiced that I have no opinion on guns in America, because I don't live there and as such; don't care. I said that I, personally, am afraid of guns and think they're industrial killing machines. And I posed a vague, hypothetical question that could have been applied to any situation where an old law/doctrine is in effect.
That's it. Nothing more. Harshest word in there was "change" followed by a question mark. Not "ban", not "make guns illegal" and certainly not "outlaw free speech and trial by jury", which some people with a slightly looser grasp on reality seem to think go hand in hand with owning the firearms I said I don't care about.
Well, today, I am going to post an opinion: if you're the kind of insecure, paranoid little twit that flies off the handle when someone poses a simple question, and who holds weapons and the laws that permit them with such religious reverence that you perceive that question as not

So thankful for (and shocked by) these amazing folks. Together they've brought the voices of Gogo, Didi, Andy, and Pablo to life, and have even tackled one of my bigger comics in the process. Their work is great, check em out, and hope you love what they've wrought this Halloween as much as I do

let's make it clearMaybe it's better to make a journal with all the infos about SMILE we came up till now, since it seems that some people still have doubts, or maybe they simply don't read all the descriptions and concepts. Who knows?let's make it clear1 year ago in Personal More Like This
However let's start this.
The current year it's 2530. All the missions and stories take part on Earth.
Back in 2453 the Earth was going through a bad economy crysis. To avoid this problem, the governments from all over the world decided to reunite under a big unique government, hoping to finally put an end to the crysis. Unfortunatelly, that government turned out to be a tyranny, identified under the name of MOLOCH.
They simply started to impose rules and laws, forcing people to live in fear.
Only in 2471 a small group of people decided to fight against MOLOCH to take their world back. They reunited under the name of SMILE. Bright colors and funny smiles are a unique feautures they have, completely in contrast with the dark colors and cree

Robocop 2.0The Robocop reboot was one of the few acts of lazy plagiarism that I wasn’t really bothered by, and was in fact looking forward to.Robocop 2.01 month ago in Personal More Like This
“WHAAAT?!” I hear some cry. “You can’t mess with a classic!”
To them I ask: Have you watched the original recently?
Unlike, say, Ghostbusters (1984), the original Robocop has not aged well, mostly because it was a satire and satirical comedy/comedy based on popular culture tends to date very quickly.
Also, because of the limitations of special effects at the time: Peter Weller now looks decidedly goofy clomping around “future” Detroit in that clunky costume. I’ve no idea how restrictive it was, but I’ve a sneaking suspicion that he took the Anthony Daniels approach to playing a robot and made a point of moving like the Tin Man in a monsoon.
The reboot has ditched the satirical slant of the original and become a character-based drama. Those hoping for a repeat of the ‘87

And now I'd like to tell about a Great Patriotic War hero of my family! His name is Eremeev Leonid Danilovich, he's my grandpa. I'm very proud of him.
He was born in 1916 in Kazan Governorate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kazan_Governorate). Graduated from Kazan Agricultural Institute. In 1943 became a commander of mortar troop, was a Guard's senior leutenant.
In 1945, going to Berlin, he was wounded on German-Poland boundary and evacuated behind the front line, when Victory Day was in two weeks.
After the war he worked by his occupation. He was a chief of our kolkhoz. He died in 1979 because of illnesses after his wound. ): What a pity I've never seen him... ): But

PE: BookbindingThis article is a short introduction to bookbinding, including information about bookbinding terms, methods, tutorials and a feature of beautiful handmade books.PE: Bookbinding11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
What is bookbinding?
We all have books at home, whether they be schoolbooks, novels, journals or sketchbooks. They might be paperbacks or hardbacks, though I'm guessing not many of you own hand-crafted books. With books being commonly used and readily available items today we forget that books are (or can be) works of art! Bookbinding is a craft especially cultivated in the Middle Ages, where books were still quite rare and expensive. The art of bookbinding has survived until today, although it is no longer necessary to bind books by hand, since we have machines that can do that for us. Nevertheless, a hand-made book is a beautiful thing, and has the special appeal of something unique.

Silent Hill: RevelationWow. And I thought the first Silent Hill film missed the point.Silent Hill: Revelation1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was surprised that a sequel was made at all, given the rather poor narrative (and acting. That kid was almost as bad as the brat from Phantom Menace) of the first movie, but in comparison with Revelation, it was positively Shakespearian.
If there's a third film in the franchise, I'll be amazed (to a point. We have had, what is it, 5 Resident Evil films, now?)
How hard is it to wrap your head around the concept, Film-Makers? Silent Hill has no face, it has no agenda, it's just an evil f**king mirror that reflects your personal demons. It's the perfect vehicle to use different actors to tell different stories with each and every film. It's potentially the James Bond of horror set-ups. Play it right and you could get 50 films out of it, easy.
You devolve it into a generic, fun-fair, ghost-train and you're pissing away the concept with such force you blow a hole in the lavatory wall.
DC puss out.While at my local comic-book emporium, I had a quick leaf through Harley Quinn #0 to check out the winning page from DC’s recent talent search.DC puss out.3 months ago in Personal More Like This
It didn’t do much to dampen the disdain I harbour for the big-name comic companies.
For a start, I’m not sure how that page was selected as the cream of the crop. Bravo to the artist for being selected, sure, but there were far more dynamic, lively examples I saw posted here on DA, and I'm genuinely surprised that none of them were chosen. The page selected feels just as stiff, stagnant, sterile and devoid of life as much of the other stuff DC discharges onto the shelves (which might have been why they ran with it).
The main gripe I have, though, is that they changed the final panel.
For those that (somehow) missed the whoo-haa that the whole talent search kicked off: the script DC provided to their would-be artists called for illustrations depicting the titular Harley trying to off herself in a series of absurd ways: holding

and authorized a full refund.
It had been a strange weekend.
The week before, my car had transformed from an able, roadworthy steed into a wheezing, growling monstrosity with a ruptured exhaust line. It was no secret that the past winter did a number on the undercarriage. Two seasons ago, winter had decided it wasn't worth the effort, and the roads were clear and generally snowless. But last year, winter came back with an axe to grind and dumped white product on us repeatedly, causing the highway department to freak and liberally administer what amounted to half an ocean's worth of salt onto the roads. The oxidation to my car's tender underbelly was considerable; at one point the area beneath the driver's side had corroded so hideously that insulation ballooned out from beneath and looked like a mangled p

However will we cope?
I think the British media look at genuinely dangerous parts of the world with envy. It must be boring for them working in the UK. We have no dangerous animals (the newspapers have been trying to cause panic over the False Widow. The least scary spider in the world), you're never more than a few miles from a road, so there is no wilderness to get lost in (you have to be dumb enough to climb a Scottish mountain in mid-winter in order to die in the "wild"), there are no active fault lines to cause major earthquakes or tsunami, you can drink the tap water without worry and our weather doesn't require special preparations to deal with, only causing trouble for people devoid of common sense.
The only thing "dangerous" here are the people.

First porn mag was one I found by accident.
First soft-core flick was stumbled upon by channel surfing late at night when no one else was around.
You really had to work for your porn in the days before the internet, so it's no surprise that people of 2013 get a little twitchy when the government announce plans to restrict access to it.
I agree that kids shouldn't see certain content, but I disagree that them doing so causes the "corruption/corrosion" some folk claim. That stems from kids not being told about what they're seeing, and has less to do with the media they're exposed to and more to do with sh*t parenting.
