Ahab's Crosshairs Crude TutorialI'm writing this from memory, so I apologize if it's not very good. Also, I made the gun in probably one of the most inconvenient ways you could do it, so it may be better to disregard this entirely.Ahab's Crosshairs Crude Tutorial4 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, materials.
* One board, about 2 1/2 inches thick, around 10ish (estimate) inches tall by however long you want the gun
* One thick dowel, about 6 inches longer than you want the harpoon to be
* One functional pellet-gun scope
* A few short, thin dowels
* Two large bolts
* A ton of wood glue
* ALL the acrylic paint
* Finish spray
1. Sketch out the shape of the rifle onto the wood. I did this by scaling it up from the picture on the MSPA wiki. It took DAYS to get it how I wanted. You will have to cut off the handle.
2. Cut it out.
3. Sketch out the handle on one of the scraps, cut that out too. Attach trigger dowel with a hole and glue.
4. Drill holes where the handle attaches to the gun body. Use wood glue to glue in dowels, then "plug them in" to matching holes in

Paranoia and a sense of impending doom.
The "party game" I just picked up should do the trick.
Each player gets a Nerf gun, the name of a target and the location in the house where they have to shoot them at some point over the course of the evening.
Nothing says "Christmas" like an assassination contract.
.....yes. I have been playing Hitman too long.

One thing remained the same through the years: a strong desire of improvement. Back in 2006, I expected harsh critique. I expected to be demolished by my peers. To have my technique corrected. Well, since this is deviantArt, such a thing did not happen, except for a few rare, unexpected, welcome times. I've had my share of "nice" "lol xD" "i really like it" and comments containing only a smiley. Part of the game, okay. Most of the time, I received good comments, compliments and praise.
Then, the turning point of my deviantart experience, you guessed it: The World War comics. Started as a joke, something to make my few watchers laugh. Not much thought and effort was really put into it, as it was supposed to b

I was talking to someone here on DA and I was going to give her some coloring tips and send her some tutorials. I decided instead to put it all in one big journal so other people can benefit from it as well.
WARNING! Some Youtube videos may have inappropriate content. I don't remember what all of the videos have in them, so proceed with caution. Especially if you are male since most of the immodesty will be of women.

Ib 1.04!Hello everyone! You guys may not know me, since I don't post journals, but I'm ToxiicLolita and I help out in the group^^Ib 1.04!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, as the title says, there is a new and updated version of Ib!
From vgperson's tumblr:
"Over a year after the release of version 1.02 (and a little less than a year after the release of my translation), Ib has been updated to version 1.04. (1.03 was an intermediate version: 1.02 with smaller filesize, and it was only available on compilation CDs and stuff.)
I may post a complete list of changes later, but here are the big ones:
- The music is compressed, so the filesize is smaller. (About time.)
- There are new paintings and conversations to find in old areas.
- A new branch is available that leads to two new endings.
- After any good ending (read: Ib escapes), you can start the game over, keeping track of your endings and such.
- After you beat the game once and continue as mentioned above

So, I'm going to announce that today I'm starting a BE Contest.
Rules are simple: draw some breast expansion! Could be a picture, an animation, a comic, as long as it's something visual (sorry, written stories won't count for this).
To make it contest-specific, please include at least one of my OCs in your entry. This helps to make it more themed for the contest! They don't have to be a major part of the entry: you could even toss them in as a little cameo.
You can make multiple entries if you feel the need to, but make sure you select one of them as your official entry.
Send me your submissions in a Note and tell me which one you choose as your entry.
First place: Fully colored request with one to three characters of your choice

Want to hack Brawl without hacking your Wii?*NOTE: This will only work for NTSC users. The NTSC region covers North and South America.*Want to hack Brawl without hacking your Wii?4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Have you ever wanted to hack Brawl, but didn't want to hack your Wii for whatever reason? Or simply found installing Homebrew to be too complicated/too much of a hassle? Via the Smash Stack method, it's possible to use a simple exploit in the Stage Builder to temporarily hack Brawl until you turn off the game. Here's a step by step to successfully install Smash Stack on your SD card, and have everything ready to hack standard Brawl.
Note that you will need a SD card that's no larger than 2 GB (a SD card larger than this will not work). Also note that SDHC cards will not work.
Step 1: Remove all custom stages from your Wii, as well as from the SD card you plan to use. If you don't want to lose your custom stages, move them to another SD card, or if you don't have one, back them up on your computer. Custom stages must be en
TF2 Personality SetupThere are 4 basic traits, and each character except for Pyro is either the apex or antapex. Apex characters are more outgoing, friendly, assertive and hard working, and are associated with BLU. Antapex characters are considered loners, thinkers, quiet and more relaxed, and are associated with RED.TF2 Personality Setup4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Trait 1 (Fire) Assertive
Trait 2 (Water) Sociability
Trait 3 (Earth) Work Ethic
Trait 4 (Air) Speed
Characters that are considered "Offensive" classes usually are more aggressive, independent and assertive. They can get themselves in fights but are the ones who can pull themselves out of one successfully.
Characters that are considered "Defensive" classes are usually more to themselves, and hate getting into arguments. They like working quietly and usually prefer being followers.
Characters that are considered "Support" classes are usually more eloquent and can be quite critical.

These bills are called called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIP (Protect IP), presented to the House of Representatives and the senate (respectively) in the United States.

I'll be honest. I wasn't expecting the backlash to be so violent. But I guess I should expect this sort of thing whenever it comes to video games.

"She's got camo skin! She's dressed this way for a reason!"
You know, you can come up with any number of reasons for a character to be scantly clad. But at the end of the day it's still a scantly clad conventionally attractive female character. Not to put to fine a point on it but having Mystique walk around naked because her skin changes color doesn't stop her from being a source of obvious pandering T&A. So I'm sorry, but that whole "you'll be ashamed for slut-shaming her" excuse doesn't hold water with me, especially after Kojima outright said that her design was to sell

For several months of torture, the Directorate kept me in their offices, making me file paperwork on their "test subjects", all while I kept sending applications to the "Dead Zone tourism" branch, to get away from towering cubes of the Directorate, away from cities and transmitter towers that were slowly frying my brain.
Centuries of industrial pollution were inevitably changing the biosphere of our world and the Directorate knew it better than anyone, yet they did nothing to stop it, profit had to be maximized, production had to be increased, customers had to be satisfied. Holes in the ozone layer, irreversible changes in the atmosphere, radioactive fallout, wild-life mutations, the days growing darker and the sky turning black - none of this mattered to them.
These changes must have been so gradual that no single generation was able to protest it.

Alleyway IncidentHiya Ryceballs. I left out something on my previous journal, something I kinda wanted to talk about but was a bit scared to... But I have decided that maybe its better to get it off my chest. This is a true story and it happened two weeks ago while I was in Melbourne for Armageddon Expo, it was a sunday night, I had a long day selling artworks and I was back in the hotel room chilling, at around 10pm I got hungry and realised I don't have much to eat, I didn't wanna call room service because I wasn't sure if food is still available that late. So knowing the 24/7 grocery store is just a block away, I decided to head out to buy a cup noodle or something. It was pretty dark outside with a bit of rain as well, much to my annoyance, but I was really really hungry. Now the proper way to get to the grocery store is to walk around the block, OR I can take a shortcut and go through the alleyway.... I tend to always walk around the block as I didn't wanna get mugged, if Batman has taught me anytAlleyway Incident2 years ago in Personal More Like This
10 things to do while looking at a photo10 things to do while looking at a photo3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Training your eye is very important. To take your photography to the next level and grow as an artist, you need to know what looks good, have an open mind and build your own style.
Point at the first thing that attracts your attention (often being the brightest point in the image)
Try to mentally trace the path your eye takes around the image (it's like connecting the dots in order to discover the story, in this case)
Has the photographer used the rule of thirds? Or a different type of placing the elements in the image?
Has the photographer shot from his eye level? Or chose a different point of view?
What is the photographer trying to transmit with the image?
How has the photographer used the environment to tell the story?
How has the photographer used light?
Why does the image work?
Does the image evoke an emotional response in the viewer's eye?
From the above, which can be appli
