OROHN DEX COMPLETE!After so many years of being on Deviant Art, since Nov 6, 2008 on my old account, I have FINALLY completed my fakemon dex! A long term goal finally achieved, I feel accomplished. I have greatly improved since then and now I'm satisfied with how far I've come.OROHN DEX COMPLETE!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
View the complete dex here
I just wanna thank my friends and for all those who have helped me achieve this goal. I really enjoyed making fakemon. But now that I'm done, I wanna focus more on people, making original characters. I'd like to be a character designer one day. So I may make gym leaders for the Orohn region and update some trainer artwork. Then maybe make more non-Pokemon related characters. I'd love to make some sort of manga.

Ok, so for completing my dex, I know some of you guys must have questions. So comment below any questions you have in mind and in the next journal I wil

FINAL EDIT - Grand Chase - 15th character - LinEllo peeps, Ruffles here with a little something for the NAGC players like myself.FINAL EDIT - Grand Chase - 15th character - Lin3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many of you have heard of this new character that is soon to be released in BGC named Lin.
Credit for the pic goes to NanaRamos
Well, her release is actually NOT exclusive to the Brazilian server alone. In fact, she is being released in KGC and BGC at the same time. Not only this, she is to be released with all four jobs, much like Rufus.
However, there is one major change to this...
There will no longer be any more characters/classes with the use of MP.
There will be a new fighting system released with Lin, and get this, this is really interesting...
Its a mash-up of MP, AP and a timed button execution system, much like games such as Super Mario RPG's timed attacks.
So far, this is what I've gotten on her skills...

Hello!Back from the dead.Hello!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've kinda disappeared for a bit, and wanted to write a little journal why I've left Facebook, Twitter and kind of my online persona. If you care to read, down below you will find my reasons. I hope you're well, and will try to post more art soon. Feel free to discuss below your opinions on the matter, and I'll try to reply. My answer goes far beyond "I've just been busy!" and maybe you too will connect with how I've felt:
The other day I received an email from a fellow follower of my work, asking the question of why I left Facebook. Not that everyone should know my daily activities, but if you haven't noticed, a couple of months ago I had deleted my FB in order to focus on my property LMS, as it's shaping up for film, and the next book in the series, LMS: Welcome to America
Now before I continue, this is strictly my opinion. I know people like to get angry online, so if you disagree with it, you have every right to

New! Cubism Messenger Bag Design Challenge!New! Cubism Messenger Bag Design Challenge!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What comes to mind when you hear the name Pablo Picasso? That’s right, it’s time to break it down, Cubism-style! For the first time ever, we are hosting a Messenger Bag Design Challenge! We want you to create an original design for the flap of the bag in the style of Cubism.
For this challenge, we are defining Cubism as an art style in which instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from multiple viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often, the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create a shallow ambiguous space.
Your design should appear on the flap of the bag (below the zipper), using only <

Need for ToleranceFrom Reddit:Need for Tolerance3 years ago in Personal More Like This
(This is pretty obvious so I didn't think I need to point it out but it seems that some people need to hear it: No, I don't think all religious people are like this. Yes, I do know these are extreme cases. But the point is that these are all recent events and we shouldn't live in a world where this kind of intolerance still exists. I've lost count the number of times that I've been harassed by Christians so the next time you see someone picking on gay people, saying atheists should be killed, don't be a bystander and just let it happen. Speak up. Stop a crime before it happens.)

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem

NINPO: A Modern Warriors PerspectiveNinpo: a modern warriors perspective excerpt by Frank Fantasia (copyright)NINPO: A Modern Warriors Perspective4 years ago in Personal More Like This
- A note to all my bretheren & sisters in the shinobi arts...
I've been training in the ways of Ninjutsu for over a decade and I've lived the life style of a lone warrior for even longer. Overall, I have trained in the Martial arts for around 20-years now. I've done my best to keep the 'Shinobi Spirit' alive and all I get is the ignorance of people.
I am a modern practitioner of a specific Ryu (tradition) and I am honored to be one of the last of them. If I may... the reason our Traditions have survived so long, is our secrecy. Concealment, misdirection, and secrecy were not just skills for the Shinobi of past; they were survival. Today, many things have changed, but some things remain, as they always have. We do not keep ourselves & our art secret because of what we do is 'wrong' or 'evil', we do it because our Art is not for everybody. It's difficult to explain to those who are not involved, or to those

I'm excited for the variety of things my new and old followers will request in the process.
