Ever wonder what it’s like to be an artist working on one of the world’s hottest shooter games inside the HQ of one of the world’s most respected videogame development companies? Ever dream of imagining and creating the alien landscapes and the superheroes and monstrous creatures who inhabit them?
These exclusive interviews only from deviantART at Epic Games HQ with Gears producers Cliff Bleszinski and Rod Fergusson and Gears artists Chris Perna, Wyeth Johnson, Shane Caudle and the rest of the Gears artists gang reveal what it takes to make a team of sorcerers to conjure, capture and render pure mayhem for our videogame rapture.

Russian Invasion of UkraineAlright, my unstable and insatiable journal minions,Russian Invasion of Ukraine1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Forgive the rushed entry on my part; I just got home not too long ago and am running as much of these down as I can, right now.
Title Redacted For Updated News - Current Updates Below with Bolded Timestamps
The scenario is this. At some point today, 2/28, unidentified Russian troops -- probably from the Black Sea Fleet -- were deployed into the Crimea region of Ukraine, taking over two airports (Simferopol International Airport and Belbek Airport). Early on, it was reported as miscellaneous armed gunmen, however it was figured out that Russian forces had flown over the border (original video from LiveLeak, YouTube posted below). The time is unknown for when these flight took place, but videos on YouTube -- under the search "Ru

Edit 07/22/10: Wow! Sorry about the huge delay in this project. Thesis hit me like a ton of bricks and I didn't have a single spare second to devote to anything else. We wanted to let you all know that the ordering website is 99% set up and we just need to finalize a couple of details before the decks are on sale. Orders will begin sometime in the NEXT FEW DAYS and will end on Aug 31. After Aug 31 it will be impossible to ever order these again, so start saving those dimes! Keep an eye out for a journal update from me very soon. Thanks, everyone!
Edit 12/21/09: So it looks like these won't be ready for Christmas. The website is all ready to go, I just need to put together all of the stories in some kind of .txt form. I wish I had the time for this, but my thesis is kicking my butt and I won't be able to do it anytime soon. If anyone would like to volunteer to help me put together all o

The project has just begun development, but you can sign up for further information at their website.
This'll be a Kickstarter project, so if you want to be rockin' your cosplay, you'll want to get involved!
Personally, I like them better than the ears that move according to your mood because they do look more like cat ears, and they can't be confused with fox ears, or any other critter.

Regarding unemployment / Freelance *UPDATED*From the polycount discussion over here: http://www.polycount.com/forum/showthread.php?t=113798Regarding unemployment / Freelance *UPDATED*2 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

"I'm going to try to disipate some doubts about CSW, I know you have been waiting a long time so I'll try to answer the most common questions:
First and most important is that the project has not been cancelled. We started to work professionaly and we have been expending a lot of time
without developing fully CSW to improve ourselves in other areas and taking a break doing different kind of things.
The truth is that we still have a lot of things about CSW that we haven't showed yet and some day will be shown;
my advice is that you just keep going on with your lives and someday you will find some update, but for the moment there isn't none.
Nothing of this can be published on the main site because we lost access to it a long time ago, we talked about that time ago. Also we can't release a first version
and then update it with downloable characters because the core of the game is not done, you might think it is by the videos, but it's

Nice move of GameSpot to have separate categories for 'artistic graphics' and 'technical graphics'. It's not perfect (which category do Okami and Shadow of the Colossus fit in)? But it at least acknowledges that distinguished art can be achieved by different avenues.
See my previous journal entry http://ken-wong.deviantart.com/journal/Alice-MR-wins-Best-Art-Direction-274044232 for a bit more about the art of our game.

Tips For Commission ArtistsHello! I thought of making this small guide, based from my personal experience, to give tips to artists, mostly beginners, to be more successful at selling commissions, since seeing from my previous journal many had difficulty with it. So here are some tips to help boosting your sales.Tips For Commission Artists6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Have your commission info somewhere visible
Possibly, people won't even know you are taking commissions or if they are open if you don't put your commission info somewhere they can see. You can do this in a journal, that I mostly recommend, since it will be showing into your watcher's inboxes and most of your watchers probably rarely visit your profile page. You could still also use the commission widget, or donation poll to write your info. You can also link to your commission info in your signature or the artist's comment of new drawings you upload.
Keep it simple
Don't add too many unnecessary rules or in
