The new Mecha Designers Group :iconmechadesigners: and a recent collaboration with my childhood hero :iconnewtman001: (http://newtman001.deviantart.com/art/Thomastapir-VTOL-Collab-WIP02-149687742) have gotten my creative pendulum swinging back towards the mechanical end of the biomechanical spectrum (don't worry, it's not as painful as it sounds, and I'm under a doctor's care). I still love the creatures, but I think I was already primed for a shift a couple of weeks ago, when the brilliant science fiction story "Second Skin" by Paul McAuley got me thinking about a new direction in which to expand the Flea War universe (http://thomastapir.deviantart.com/gallery/#Flea-War-Mecha-and-Combatants). McAuley's "Quiet War" stories involve a political conflict playing out between Earthbound and spaceborne factions of humanity in the a

Accolades to those who guess this already. Also, more good news for Vega fans, there's a character spotlight for him from GameTrailers. Be sure to check it out. And for the people who are still either "meh" or on the fence about Vega, check it out anyway.
There are some slight spoilers in the clips seen. Nothing ground-breaking and certainly nothing people haven't already deduced from ME2.
Thank goodness for YouTube mirrors. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqxCaMSJHhQ
Next, we have the GT.TV special on Mass Effect 3. Now, some of this people may have already seen, but this also shows a ton of new footage. And some of which people will definitely regard as spoilers. A main story mission from early in the game is discussed and some clues are given regarding the main plot. I only watched pieces of a third of it, myself. For those of you who want to brave the spoilers, here are the videos:

How to Make 2D Tile sets for games Part 1 + MoreHey everyone!How to Make 2D Tile sets for games Part 1 + More6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I just uploaded a new tutorial, the first in the series, all about making 2D tiles and tile sets for games!
Things covered in this episode:
- The anatomy of a basic tileset
- Setting up and using Photoshop's grid system for making tiles
- Using Photoshop's Offset filter to make tiles seamless
- Adapting a tiling texture into a tileset
- Some results of a finished basic tileset
- Thoughts and some opinions!
- I forgot to master the audio. Sorry if I sound just a tad muffly!
Also recently uploaded by Tyler Edlin, this video about perspective drawing where I also have a segment about how to make perspective grids in Photoshop!
By the way, have you been paying attention to my tumblr? I post stuff like this more often there, as I only see my DA journal as a means to communicate about mo
Some basic theory about my ship designs.First of all, my designs are based on three important points:Some basic theory about my ship designs.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1 FTL is possible, however there are some severe constraints, which I will come back to.
2. Artificial gravity (AG) is also possible, but it too has constraints, that roughly follow the laws of physics.
3 Inertial damping, or rather camouflaging mass is also possible, and it is neccesary for both FTL and AG.
My ships are all powered by anti matter reactors, all moving parts from doors, to engines, to guns are all operated by linear electromagnetic engines/magnetic levitation.
there are no hydraulics anywhere.
Now, my ships all have something called a central gravity deck. this is essentially a deck in the center of the ship that pull everything inward, so that you walk on either side of it.
My reason for this is 1: gravity works inward like a sphere, if one side is an attractive plane it is only natural that the other side is too. The reason for choosing a plate rather than a sphere is because of the size requirements to get
Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect seriesThis is something I felt compelled to write;Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect series9 months ago in Personal More Like This
both as a gamer and the influences that helped shape me as a developer.
Almost a year from when I touched my last save file, I finally "finished" the Mass Effect series. I played all the DLC and I beat the game, one last time. It was a somber ending, because it put a final end to a character I have played since 2007. I have games that I love, games stretching back to my childhood, and games that I would consider myself to be a huge fan of. I can count on one hand though (and not using all my fingers), franchises that have sucked me in and crafted characters that made me care about them in such a way, that turns this 6'5 developer into your everyday excitable fan (not Justin Beiber level though, that'd be just plain crazy). The Mass Effect series is one of those few titles.
I have looked up to Bioware for many years. Combined with my love for Point & Click advent
A Public Service AnnouncementLots of people I've talked to misuse important political terms (few of them have been on DeviatART, so perhaps this is pointless). But I wanted to more accurately explain some political terms.A Public Service Announcement9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Reactionary: Someone who wishes to return things to the way they were before. Reactionaries see that the best days of a nation are in its past, and that we must return to that past.
Conservative: Someone who sees current things as best. Conservatives view the current state of things as the best possible way for a nation to be. So any major changes will either do nothing, or will have a negative impact.
Liberal: Someone who sees a Possible Future as Best. Liberal wish to improve the existing social order, but slowly and orderly.
Radical: Also someone who sees a Possible Future as best. However, unlike Liberals, Radicals believe the existing social order is inherently flawed. According to Radicals, instead of slowly improving the Existing Social Order, we need to remove it completely and start over
ASTEROIDS and MY WAR AGAINST THE STUPIDASTEROIDS and MY WAR AGAINST THE STUPID10 months ago in Personal More Like This
So let's talk about asteroids and meteors....
As I write this the dearth of intellect that is social media is going ape shit over the near pass of Asteroid DA14. You can not go more than a post or two without seeing words like 'doomsday,' 'apocalypse,' and 'Bruce Willis.' And then, of course there are mind numbing posts like this one:
"...the "DA14" hasn't flown by us yet. The scientists say if it flew by 15 minutes later, well we'd all be scr*wed!"
Okay. I'd like to know which "scientist" supposedly said this. If I had to guess, it was probably one of the thousands of hack "experts" media outlets use to generate eye catching headlines. No legitimate scientist would EVER make a claim like this. And especially NOT in regards to an asteroid like DA14.
Time for some goddamn education, kids. Gather round. Especially you dim ones in the back who think Michael
RIP Robin SachsThis has been going around on tumblr, so you're there, you probably already heard. If not, I figured I should make a post about it here as well.

Anyways, watch at your own risk.

Getting back on the horseI have been away from DA from quite some time and have let a bunch of things fall by the wayside, waiting for things to become less chaotic. I have realized that this plan of mine is not working so I had better buck up and put things in order. To that end I am getting back onto DA and working on art once again. I do admit that I have more or less scraped all of my backlog and am starting from scratch. If you payed me for something or were part of an art trade with me, get in contact with me and tell me what it was and I will get to work on it. Other than that I am going to work on what pleases me.Getting back on the horse5 months ago in Personal More Like This

I'm sick of immature kidslike...seriously. I was called a poor hippy who can't afford a computer and that I suck at art AND that I am stupid...all because I didn't finish a kids request on time. No, scratch that, I didn't finish it in a week. He did not give me a time frame to complete it. And poor hippy? How am I drawing on a fucking 400 dollar tablet connected to a personalized laptop if I am poor? I just...don't get it. He's letting his rage out on me, and I guess I can accept that...but posting rude comments on all of my videos is not okay...its like, these immature people don't understand that I actually have a bit of a life, and feelings. I seriously want to cry right now, over a person who means absolutely nothing to me. I hate this. Everyone expects me to be strong because I am a bitch on the internet...I'm just trying to defend myself and end up hurt.I'm sick of immature kids7 months ago in Personal More Like This

Brutal Legend + My Little Pony = Revival of Muse?Over the past few months, I have very heavily been into the amazing game that is Brutal Legend by DoubleFine, featuring Jack Black.

On top of that, a friend of mine actually convinced me to join a MLP roleplay forum about a week ago now, and I am already having a BLAST. And for two very specific reasons. One, the forum is mature, Two, I get to play Eddie Riggs as a pony. Yes, you read that right- I am playing Eddie Riggs. As a pony. A pegasus, to be precise, who has some badass demon wings and swears enough to make a sailor blush.
It's so much goddamn fun, it's stupid.
But this is the part that makes me have a WTF-
As you can probably tell by my account, I have NOT been drawing much. Or creating much in general. My muse has been pretty much dead for months, due to a variety of things, but thanks to the combination of Brutal Legend and MLP... I'm drawing again. I'm w
Fuck hot topicfucking I applied for a job there a few days ago. i was told by everyone to call them and ask if they took a look at it to prove I was interested in the job. I did exactly that, and was very polite on the phone. You know what I get? Fucking guy telling me "now were losing money to answer your call, next time do it face to face" In the rudest attitude that I didn't fucking deserve. Could have just said "Come talk to us face to face" Instead of blame me for the fact you lose money. Maybe its because you give nice people lip every time something doesn't go your way. Fuck that store, not even gonna go back, they can trash my application and go out of business for all I care. I fucking apologized and was all "sorry for your time" and he just says whatever and hangs up. fucking douchebag.Fuck hot topic7 months ago in Personal More Like This

i'm so sick of seeing clevage. Like, if a girl is willing to post a picture of her giant titties in a little selfie, might as well just do it naked, come on. Make it art, buy a nice camera if you're so proud of your body as use it to make wonderful art, not take slutty pictures of yourself.
There is a thing called artistic nude. I kinda enjoy seeing them, to be hoenst. With that kind of art, you get even more attention, so why must these slutty girls continue to try and look "hot" by dressing like trash and sporting their boobs, but then...thats it. Thats all the do. If you make our pictures look good (without shitty instagram editing) that is the time it is acceptable to take pictures of your fucking self with your wiman parts spilling out of your clothes. Make. it. look. good.
I assure you, you will get twice the popularity you desire. Not only will perverts call you hot, but people like me will call you beautiful. I use so ma
