Happy New YearLet's all start the year off with some stuff I wish I had growing up:Happy New Year2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I read an article last night on people who are mentally strong and the DO NOTS of being that person.
I took those notes, and listed them, including how I learned to overcome these obstacles. It's a long read, sorry, but I figured this year it's time to open up and share that knowledge that I was once taught by someone I consider my mentor, business partner and bestfriend, Stephan.
1. Don't waste time feeling sorry for yourself - I used to feel this way as a kid. I was a child of divorce, and used it as a crutch when I was younger. I hate a (mentally) abusive step-mom who would constantly take me down. I began to feel that maybe it was true, and I wasn't going to be the person I wanted to be.
You can't think that way. No one likes or enjoys a Debbie Downer. Someone who is constantly on the negative or pining for sympathy. I began to overcome these complications with art or writing. Using tha

Figured sharing some Batman action might help break the ice a little.
In case you haven't paid any attention to the shorts that played this
summer over Cartoon Network's DC Nation then you might have missed the
standout work that came from Wolf Smoke Studio.
They're the studio behind Kung Fu Cooking Girls, a short that pretty much brought a new style to the animation table:
This, I believe, is the lead key animator's profile on Pixiv. Just click the image to go there and browse his gallery. It's quality:
Always a beautiful thing to see a new studio doing so well against all odds. They're almost doing the impossible over there in China. Hopefully we'll see them producing more memorable animation. I wish them many years of success and growth.
As far as myself, I've got some animation of my own coming down the pipe. More on that in the future...I'm

Today's the last day you guys will see me on dA at all. I'll be leaving the 29th for the Air Force, so these last few days are days I'm going to be spending with family and getting things packed last minute. Some of you will be lucky enough to get my address to send me letters when I'm away. xD Otherwise, ya'll won't see me until the end of September/the beginning of October.
Any collabs/commissions during this time will be put on hold. I won't be able to work on anything while I'm away. :c
Thank you to everyone who showed up for the livestream a day or so ago, I think it was kinda successful. A few questions were asked here and there (of which I've saved). I'll post those questions at the end of this journal so those of you who might have asked those questions can see them. I'll also put a link to the recording that was done that day. Unfor

Two hours and thirty minutes left and the contest if over, start wrapping the artwork up and get it in before midnight pacific coast time tonight. JULY 18TH. It might take me a week to pick the winners out there has been some amazing entries.
I warn you do not send plagiarism stuff and try to pass it off as your own or I will try to get you banned. If you make money off of your stolen artwork I will contact the artist and they will deal with you. Specially if it's a gaming company and the previous owner is someone I know. I advised all of you not to use game art. When I said I game and I'm an avid fantasy collector I was not lieing. Also I haven't played every game out their like Skyrim (I know shun the none believer) so again do not enter art that looks like you copied it from in-game content are you will be disqualified. If I don't know it some fan might and point it out.

I met my dear friend amrodel and we visited ZOO Jihlava together - it was full of baby cats!
Caracals, manuls and snow leopards had babies, so it was amazing to watch them - just the weather was bad, cloudy and even rainy, so the light made the photography difficult thanks for lovely meeting, Amrodel!

10. Chocolate (2008)
Probably the best martial arts movie to come out of Thailand, although influenced heavily by the Hong Kong martial arts movie scene. This modern classic is well worth a watch. It's about an autistic girl with incredible combat skills who sets out on a mission to ensure that her mother's debts with local gangs are paid back. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoccbDV5NOI
9. Magnificent Butcher (1979)
Directed by Yuen-woo Ping, this action-comedy (originally titled Lin Shi Rong) was made in an attempt to enjoy the same success that Drunken Master II did. Sammo Hung stars as Lam Sai Wing, a clumsy yet talented fighter. The martial arts featured in this film are old school and an extremely technical merging of two different forms. It did not go on to duplicate the success of Drunken Master II, but it is considered a classic

"The under realm?" I said.
Slendy nodded and picked up (Y/n)'s sketchbook from the living room and started to search for a page. He finally found it and he glanced at the drawing before handed it to me.
"The tree was the under realm's portal to come here and terrorize towns and cities. They stopped using the portal around the 1900s and hasn't been used ever since." Slendy said.
"Why did they stop using it?" I asked.
"They must have gone out of control with it and demons couldn't stop possessing the living." Slendy said.
I nodded and looked back at the picture. It didn't make any sense of why they need (Y/n).
"But....why her? Why (Y/n)?" I said.
"I don't know child but, everything has a reason and secrets have shocking truths. So someone thinks that (Y/n) could open the portal again and she must have something different from other people." Slendy sai

So I have something fun to give away today.
First of all, the significance of today is that it is the launch day for the lush, thrilling book Origin, by debut author Jessica Khoury. Origin is the first of five Fall 2012 books from Penguin Young Readers dubbed the 2012 Breathless Reads, and I have to say, it's fantastic. You will really want to read this. It's set in the Amazon rainforests (how beautiful and original is that setting? Amazing!), and tells the story of a young girl named Pia who is genetically engineered to be immortal. But

Nov.21/11It actually sickens me what people will say about you , like you aren't even real . I understand constructive criticism and even flat out rude comments don't bother me , but they do bother other people . On my latest photo , I was called anorexic , ugly , disturbing etc. As well comments like "why don't men look like men anymore?" What has society become that we find it socially acceptable to EVER talk to someone like that . If I didn't have thick skin that would bother me a lot more . But for the people it does bother , you could be taking away an innocent life by talking to someone like that . It just makes me so upset how we treat each other and that it's just going downhill . I have a project for you . Go to school/work tomorrow and go up to one person who could use a compliment and say something nice to them . Little things can make a big difference .Nov.21/114 years ago in Personal More Like This

Dragonball Z Cosplay Photos!!!here is the completed look of my haruka cosplay costumeDragonball Z Cosplay Photos!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I took these photo at Animate Miami. I am really happy on how the costume came out. I made a few tweaks here and there from the original characters look. Instead of using bight yellow i went for golden yellow eye instead. The color look way more natural on me. I also keep the leotard whole instead of add the peak-a-boo hole on it. I have to admit i did have a few malfuction with the armor. But lucky for me it was an easy fix. I plan to improve the armor before i wear it to the next convention. I well also plan to do a another photo shoot with my up to date armor, so keep an eye out for those photos.

Gay Pride (Rainbow - Gay, Gay Men, Lesbians, and sometimes the entire Queer community. The rainbow represents acceptance of all sexual orientations.)
Labrys Lesbian Pride (Purple with Labrys in inverted black triangle [different versions exist] - Lesbians, women, and feminism, and gynephilic people who identify as female. Labrys became a symbol of lesbians and feminists due to the popularity of a female empowerment publication called Labrys Magazine. In addition, the black triangle is a symbol of lesbians due to the fact that many lesbians were forced to wear it in concentration camps during the Holocaust under the idea that they were "asocial" and did not conform to heteronormativity).
Bisexual Pride (Pink, Purple, and Blue - Bisexuals and sometimes all multisexual/non-monosexual/multiple gender attracted people.)

I might resume the Bionicle project during the summer. As of now it will remain on hiatus.
I do think you'll see a 2011-2012 sketch dump though (as I'm always sketching) and you'll probably see a Toa-Mata Wallpaper soon. Unfortunately, you likely wont see any long term rendered and polished work for a while due to focus being placed on my professional site.
What I plan to do for bionicle is a portrayal of Makuta and Matanui as mythological iconography, such as
and a redesign of a Bohrok, TakaNuva and a Rahkshi.
This, however, is a reduction of what i originally planned to do.
I obviously bit off more thanI could chew.
For example I will not be doing the Toa Nuva. Knowing how much time it took to create the original six...I'm not doing them again, lol. Keep an eye open Just in case they ap
