3DS Updates & Mario Kart CommunitiesSort of a continuation of my last journal. I talked about briefly the 3DS update, but I didn't realize how extensive the update was till after I posted. So I thought I'd just give a quick rundown of everything that's new.3DS Updates & Mario Kart Communities3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first big update is that the 3DS camera can now record 10 minute videos in 3D. There isn't much beyond that, but it's still really neat to be able to do. The videos are automatically saved to your SD card and like the pictures you can adjust how much they pop out or sink in by simply moving the analogue stick.
A new channel has been created called the Nintendo Zone. I haven't been able to use this myself yet, but from what I understand if you take your 3DS to a store like Best Buy, it's supposed to automatically update special content. This special content is kinda vague, but on Nintendo's website they list exclusive 3D videos, play select games online, discover new and old games for the eShop, and receive more surprise content. I'll probably be able to explain th
Megaman X9 Chapter 1: The SanctuaryThree weeks later. Due to the incident of Lumine and the new generation reploids going maverick. The new generation reploids production has been halted. Growing weary from the Reploids maverick actions, Humans have created a settlement away from the reploids from different places on earth. The New Generation Reploids incident of going Maverick was kept classified so it won’t spread fear to humans.Megaman X9 Chapter 1: The Sanctuary1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
X and Zero reported this incident from the higher authority. They mention about their comrade Axl in comatose because Lumine lashes something on his forehead. Axl have not awaken for 3 weeks so X and Zero decided to bring Axl to a more advance investigatory process because he does not show any sign of recovery from the Headquarters. They admitted Axl in New Generation Reploids Research Facility.
Dr. Craig Sid one of the most brilliant scientist of that time hears of the situation. He gets very interested when he heard that it has something in relation

(After you defeat 1st Maverick)
Dr. Craig Sid makes a worldwide announcement to the humans affected on the present maverick attacks. He expresses sympathy over the humans harmed by the Old generation Reploid mavericks. Showing a kind heart, he offers a newly built human settlement near the Jakob elevator. The settlement will only be for humans to secure them from another maverick attacks. He welcomes any humans who wanted to reside to that place. It was dubbed by Dr. Craig Sid, “The Sanctuary”. Humans are pleased with the announcement. Many humans immediately go to the sanctuary Dr. Sid proposes but some stayed to their places because they don’t trust the reploids anymore.
Hearing this, Dr. Sid gained the trust of X and Zero. The hunters realizes that it was Dr. Sid who created the Sanctuary.

Freedom of Speech shall surviveToday January the 7th, 2015, 3 heavily armed gunmen launched a terrorist attack against the satirical newspaper "Charlie Hebdo" office in Paris, France. Aside from the fact that murdering someone is already a horrible act in itself, what happened today is quite symbolic I think.Freedom of Speech shall survive3 months ago in Personal More Like This
12 innocent people (and possibly more) died during the attack. Those were artists, cartoonists, writers and journalists, along with 2 policemen too. They were killed for expressing their opinions. They were killed for making drawings and comics, and picturing their ideas. They were killed for the same thing that you, I, and thousands of other persons here on deviantART are doing. "Charlie Hebdo" is quite the humorous newspaper and making fun of basically everything. They were killed for making people laugh their asses off!
France is quite in a state of shock and deep sadness right now and I have to say that I am, too. This is a direct attack against the freedom of speech and several artists found death today
Digital art vs traditional artMy work colleagues and I were having a discussion on the value of hand drawn pictures vs those generated digitally. I work in the architecture industry and even though it isn't related to the visual art world directly, we do produce hand sketches of buildings and plans that can be seen as art in themselves, and sometimes we have programs generate 3D models and then apply the "hand sketch" filter on a perspective to give it that hand drawn quality.Digital art vs traditional art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The discussion got me thinking about art making in the present digital age in general. Does drawing something digitally make it less 'valuable' than drawing the same picture by traditional methods? Does the ease of creating quality work in greater speed and quantity actually de-value art? My biggest question is probably what values do people look for when they see art? If a piece of art (drawing, music, literate etc) brings out the emotional responses that the artist was aiming for in the

The Real Pros:
I have met some of the best artists in my industry and by and large they were humble and well adjusted people. These folks are the types who are approachable and don't spend time basting in their own glory, and can be spoken to like humans and not pompous self inflated stars.
You pros who look down on people just because you think you have a talent that happens to be praiseworthy in this century, keep in mind you still meet death like all of us, you still walk the planet with waste within you like all of us, you can have your talent taken from you in one quick accident. Here but by God's Grace, your talent is not guaranteed for tomorrow, neither is your life nor health, so show some humility, it all can be taken from you in heartbeat. You're an entertainer, and everyone's equally important whether a baker or accountant since we all contribute to society. Having status is a test to show if you're going to be a

Some rather prudish individuals have complained that it looks a mite dubious, while the owner of Dirty Bird has insisted that people are seeing what they want to see, and not what was intended.
It is claimed that the logo is simply the lower case initials of the company placed back to back in order to form the neck and wings of a cockerel.

CritStop 03 - Art school vs self teaching?Greetings Concepteez!CritStop 03 - Art school vs self teaching?1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Apologies for missing out on the CritStop last week. I was at a weekend long concept-design workshop which didn't leave me with much time to do a post.
I might run down some of the things we did in the workshop in a future post, but this week I thought I would do something a little bit different. I have been getting quite a few queries over the last few weeks about making the choice between formal training courses such as university or college over that of self-teaching and using online resources and short courses. One of these was Nyte-Tyme who wrote:
"I mentioned before that I am currently attending a school called ------- University. So far, my first semester of a Junior year here has been bad. Art history classes (which I think are somewhat necessary) a Physics of Light and Color class. A web design class and a video and audio class which was essentially a film class after awhile. But I've been recently looking into C
The good ol' daysI remember a time when I would come on here routinely and vent all my feelings for no other reason than just that.The good ol' days8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I think part of the reason I felt the need to do that here is because in my mind, you liking my art means potentially you like me as a person. This is not necessarily the case, but maybe in some instances it is.
Since a while back when all of us UDON folks went off to our own places away from a centralized studio, I've started to feel a sort of distance from the scene and my cohorts. As time went on, I got married and now have two kids, while manyof my coworkers don't and that is not a chastisement.
However, having a family of your own is a full time thing and one that needs constant communication and planning to get the most of. Many things that seem so unclear manifest themselves only well after the point, and all in all its a learning game that never stops.
Because of a number of factors, I also just turned off all external media out of sheer disinterest. I never watche

According to my DeviantART experience I noticed that those messages are usually posted by fake accounts, created on the same day. But that seems to be different about the current spam wave because I noticed that some of them accounts are fairly old, sometimes more than 8 years and apparently belong to actual people that used to post some Art.
My guess is that's a Spam Zombification. You become a Spam Zombibot once you're infected. Ehmagherd.

North American and Japanese Sonic OriginsThe Original American Storyline:North American and Japanese Sonic Origins3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sonic the Hedgehog grew up with his forest friends in the Green Hill Zone of the planet Mobius. Orphaned at an early age, Sonic fell in with a clan of rambunctious animal friends who taught him a variety of skills and tricks that you'll see him use in his video games today.
Johnny Lightfoot, a rabbit, showed Sonic how to outrun every creature in the forest, while Sally Acorn, a squirrel, taught Sonic how to jump incredible distances. A bluebird Flicky, influenced Sonic with his happy fearless approach to life: Joe Sushi, a walrus instructed Sonic on how to dive and swim, while a penguin, Tux, taught Sonic how to breathe underwater.
With the help of his many friends, Sonic developed cleverness, speed and a certain amount of "forest smarts."
Perhaps the most important lesson of all was from Chirps, a chicken, who inadvertently helped Sonic develop the Super Sonic Spin Attack. You see, as Chirps was learning to fly, he

The latest details for the Xbox One show that pretty much every aspect of gaming culture that we hate has been incorporated into it. Needing to check in every 24 hours to make sure you've legally bought a game? Check. Not able to bring games over to a friend's house unless your friend ALSO buys the game? Check. Forcing game stores to sign an agreement to pay Microsoft a large percentage of the used sale fee? Check. More motion controls? Check. Inability to let independent-developers make games on their system? Check. Not backwards compatible? Check. Stronger emphasis on watching TV and movies than playing games? Check. Seriously, this is like a check list of all the worse possible things to include in a gaming console.

The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature. A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character. You can do either evil or good. Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone). Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game. I really would like to see originality in this and I

Last Thursday, a good friend of mine, :iconCrystalViolet500: posted a journal stating that she would be trying to improve her well being, by doing different tasks, such as going on a diet, waking up earlier, getting involved in different activities, the works.
There was one task she posted there, which was to control her lust, and she explained to her watchers that she would no longer be involved in any sexual role plays.
Most of her friends, including myself, were cool with her decision, and fully supported her.
But, this unsettling face :iconSKYNET-V2:, her so called "friend", didn't really seem to accept her decision, and made a comment to her, stating that "she will eventually succumb to the desire of lust" and told her to contact him whenever she wanted to do another erotic role play.
