Helmet Updatesafter many years of hiatus on this project. we finally decide to continue this project. apologize for that.Helmet Updates3 years ago in Personal More Like This
many people asking can we wear them for skateboard activity ? if you ask now. the answer is YES.
there will be lots of details changed from the helmet, but the overall look will be still bonehead helmet as you know
many years before.
much more room to breath, not only for cosplay usage, even for long runs of paintballing/airsoft battle usage.
the material will be much thicker, custom led lights, custom ops-core mounts for multiple purpose, urban warfare themed.
there will be 4 color variant for the 1st batch of this helmet. comes with wooden laser cut graphics for the packaging
plus 1 limited edition tshirt and originality certificate signed by me.
for now, we only accept 10(ten) buyer, so hit me up on email/facebook/dA notes/ if you're interested and i will list them 1st.
payment session open at 22 august via 5060.bigcartel.com. the project is already running, preview work

PLEASE PLEASE SIGN THIS!!
A lady dressed like Batgirl asked some really hard hitting questions at the convention at all the dc panels (do you know how hard it is to get into those??? HOLY CRAP, LADY!). She was met with really rude, offhanded, bullying treatment by panel members. She asked why DC had dropped from 12% female creators to 1% and was met with derision. The crowd was turned against her. I literally cried reading what was said to her. You can read about it here: http://dcwomenkickingass.tumblr.com/post/7985599811/panels

A little opinion...About the frontage thing... I think more than change the "popular" system, a new options set for the frontage are needed. This is not because I could be somewhat affected by the change, my pics keep appearing in FrontPage and the watchers are still following my work (and I thank you so much for that ) but because I saw a lot of people misplacing art and taking advantage of the new system, helping even more to create the odd idea of a popularity "goal/prize". I like the idea of the popular frontage because it works pretty much like a musical ranking and it was a tool to know public´s preferences: wich kind of concepts/ideas/colors/styles works better and like a test to know the effect of a specific work. Somewhat of democratic voice, that helps to know to the public a bit more.A little opinion...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before you ask, NO, I don't think that the goal of an artist is to be popular and I don't think that "popular=better" I saw both as different parameters that sometimes goes hand by hand and sometimes runs
Big Ben ResponseA succinct summary of the recent complaints:Big Ben Response4 years ago in Personal More Like This
"You somehow magically gained the ability to draw near-photorealistic buildings overnight and you choose to use this amazing newfound skill to draw a building in the background? Get serious dude."
This is a redrawing of Big Ben (using a different reference photo BTW) to show that I am actually capable of drawing architecture just fine. I only used the computer for the poster version because I wanted more control over it.
I'm gonna be leaving Big Ben the way it is in the poster. There's nothing to "own up to" about it other than saying "sorry I used such a recognizable image source of a popular and well known landmark as reference." I did not trace.
Curious that so many of the people crying "copyright infringement" over me using reference are also the same people who take my comics and make "parodies" of them by cutting, rearranging, and re-uploading th
DA Lit : Who We AreI am proud to be exclusively a literature artist. I really don't know how to do anything else. Here on DA, Literature is not necessarily under appreciated by most of the people in the community, it is just widely ignored. I think, really, many of us are completely okay with that. For the most part, we aren't here for popularity.DA Lit : Who We Are4 years ago in Personal More Like This
We are here for each other. We don't have thousands of followers. We don't have millions of faves. But for the most part, we have been able to find other artists that help us to refine our art. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I truly cannot express the appreciation and love that I have for my friends who consistently critique my work. One monstroooo, ChibiDomo, or any other of my adamant critique-rs is worth a thousand faceless, nameless followers.
We are a community of our own. There are many groups here on DA that inspire writ
A Mystical and Magical FeatureContinuing to show my appreciation for the talented deviants here, I took my favorites from my Mystical and Magical collection to compose this illustrious art feature for all to see. The fantasy genre has long been a lucrative outlet for budding artists to show off their imaginative talents. DeviantArt is no exception to this, as the majority of creative artwork here is dedicated to personalized dreams, fantasy worlds, custom made creatures, rogue bards, lone warriors, dragons, Elves, Angels, Demons, Tolkien/Rowling/Martin/etc fanart and every thing in between. I myself have worked around this idiom from time to time, treasuring the power of fantasy in the only ways we know how: Reading, writing and creating our own worlds.A Mystical and Magical Feature2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please take the time to browse through this collection from my favorite artists and their incredibly enchanting work.

#2 (worth 15 pts)
'Thank heavens you’re here!” exclaimed 17 year old Rob, the clerk at the little corner convenience store. Detective Brown had come in to avoid the rain and get a coffee.
The little store was warm and cozy despite the driving rain outside, and I was pleased to note that Robbie was obviously doing a good job of keeping the place neat and tidy. The floor was spotless, and all the shelves were neatly arranged.
“What’s wrong, Rob?” Brown asked.
“You just missed them!” the young boy told him. “Two men just burst into here, held a gun on me and demanded all the money in the register. Mr. Loan says if that happens, we should just give it over, so I did, but as soon as they were gone, I ran outside to see if I could get their license number, or at least see the car they were driving.&
Some Thoughts.Tournament ObservationsSome Thoughts.7 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ive been in art tournaments of the DeviantART sort for a while, observing, competing and administrating ever since July 07. Doesnt sound like much, but I am assured by my friends that this makes me at the very least a Veteran in the Tournament scene. So! With that in mind, Id like to take this opportunity to bitch and whine about problems with tournaments Ive seen, and to praise to the high heavens innovation and whatnot in the various tournies that pop up from time to time. This is mainly to do with Tournament establishment and administration; have a gander if you like.

*puts on tinfoil hat* What Frozen is really about!Watched Frozen today and it was quite the mess of Scandinavian culture and stereotypes. Don't get defensive if you really love the movie. It was indeed a cultural mess, but in an entertaining way. Also, while watching it, I unintentionally came up with a somewhat sinister theory of what is going on behind the scenes of the main story. (Keep in mind this is just for fun. I can't imagine this was what Disney was thinking. Consider it an alternative interpretation of the Frozen universe)*puts on tinfoil hat* What Frozen is really about!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
While it takes place in some Disney fantasy country called Arendelle, it's clearly strongly inspired by Norway, what with all the mentions of fjords and such. But the people in the royal city are wearing clothes that looks like a mix between Swedish and Norwegian dress and they raise a maypole which is mostly a Swedish tradition in Scandinavia (it's still done a few places in Denmark too and even fewer places in Norway, so really, it's seen as a Swedish thing). At one point they meet a shopkeeper who
Greetings and ThoughtsHello! My name is Hound, and I enjoy creativity. Let me tell you about myself for a bit. I have always loved art in all of it's forms. I used to draw concept art and take photos, but now I write music and poems. I play many instruments and I am currently working on an ambient project. At the time of this entry, I am 18 and striving to become an electronics engineer. Hopefully I will design technology to keep humanity moving forward, and the minds of people always active. We will not continue to progress if we do not ask questions, never searching for the deeper meaning of things.Greetings and Thoughts4 years ago in Personal More Like This
My journal entries will be written like a personal blog into my journey, a journey to find art that truely shows humanity, life, universe, and the depictions into a persons day-to-day world.
As my first entry, I must ask myself a basic question. What is art? For me, it is the expression of our inner-self. Everything we have gone through, everything we see and hear, and everybody that we connect with. Somehow a

So I learned that we would have a nice clean looking apartment, but the catch is that we can't just act like we own the damn place. That means no messes, no hardcore partying, no modifications to the place, none of that. We're pretty much living in a sterile hotel room with no service. There will also be visits somewhat regularly from the execs. Perhaps the only private safe haven will be our own bedrooms.
Oh, and my oldest brother and his wife own two pet chinchillas that they can't bring to Hong Kong. No pets policy. Luckily, I think they found people to take care of em.
We're all gonna have to get used to living in a place that doesn't feel like home for years.
