Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and realityReboot of Tomb Raider franchise was probably the most heatedly discussed topic over the last 4 years. We didn’t know if it would become a success or yet another fail, but there was one thing that was clear as a day – fandom split in two. One group supported and firmly believed in the reboot. The other group hated and resented the idea of it claiming that Lara Croft is dead for them now.Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and reality2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Now the game is out. It IS a success. Franchise that was on a razor edge before was saved. But there is one question that remained unanswered – did people who resented reboot change their mind or they just receded in the dark mourning over the character that is dead for them now.
Tomb Raider Empire offers you, dear loyal raiders, a little quiz that will help to make things clear. It will be really interesting for us to hear your answers on the given questions and we are sure it will be inter

On the Subject of BasesFellow People of Deviantart,On the Subject of Bases3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I am here today to talk to you about Bases and Dolling.
I am not asking you to do it, or even to like it, but just to put out a standpoint that is sorely missing from this ongoing row over what a Base really is.
You may think a base is a large traced piece from anime with no skill and that the people who draw on top of them are lazy artists who just don't want to learn how to draw. Some bases are traced, but not every base.
Dolling is a hobby, something that is done for fun, and not every doller out there wants to be able to draw like a whiz kid. A lot of people hold down jobs, or full time education and just want a little fun. And so they are able to use a base that they like and draw some clothes and hair onto it, often very skillfully.

Homophobic #ToMyUnbornChild tweets turned into PSACharlotte Moore (Cavatica) from Raleigh, North Carolina has created a PSA against homophobia after the Twitter hashtag #ToMyUnbornChild attracted homophobes to publicly announce that they would murder their child if he or she was gay.Homophobic #ToMyUnbornChild tweets turned into PSA3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
#ToMyUnbornChild became a trending topic on Twitter a few weeks ago, and while most people used it to write loving tweets to their future children, some homophobes decided to do just the opposite.
@Homophobes, a Twitter account that retweets homophobes to expose their ignorance, published an article of 100 extremely homophobic tweets, which gained quite a bit of attention around the web.
Charlotte Moore was inspired, and decided to write and direct a PSA using the tweets. The video was produced by Brian Lee and Nick Heim.

I will have to completely reorganise my breakfast schedule because of some overzealous admin. Usually I wake up, prepare nomnoms, settle in front of the computer and search for some morning drama. butthurtbrigade was one of my favourite places to acquire my morning dose of concentrated baawws. Now when it is gone I will be forced to actively search for the dramas elsewhere and I don't like that.
My breakfast should look like this:
And now for a few days will look like this. Which is mostly inconvenient and you should care because...umm...yes, because yes.
Crossing the LineAlmost 99.9999% of the comments I get on DA are very nice and complimentary. For this I am grateful and appreciative. I also appreciate the occasional criticism that suggests I try a different crop, color, or lens choice. Even after 35 years I feel it is vital to listen to all the input I get because there are occasional jewels of ideas that come from learned professionals and beginning amateurs alike. Sometimes I even like it more when someone who is new to photography makes suggestions because they aren't stifled by the "rules" we all learn when we start out.Crossing the Line3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Sculpture commissionsHi my name is Jareth Bustamante,Sculpture commissions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You can own a one of a kind sculpture for yourself or even have a few copies of you sculpture that you commission from me.
For the future these are the prices . I can't necessarily put a solid price until I know what is to be sculpted (estimate pricing after examples).
Leave me a note if you are interested (in the note put a description of the piece wanting to be commissioned such as height and a picture)
I am open to sculpt a variety of things such as cartoons, comics book characters, minecraft, etc.
Here are some examples of my artwork to demonstrate my ability:
Venom vs carnage:
My mutant turtle (original concept)
Some korra sculpts
If you are still looking at this I will try to explain the pricing.
My work is very good quality and and it is at an affordable price for a personal sculpture.

BJD Doll FAQBJD Doll FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please read this if you are interested to learn more about the dolls I photograph. I dont have time to keep answering the same questions over and over again >_< I will be updating this journal entry as time goes on. Feel free to add a question in the comments section and I will try to answer it.
❤ BASICS ❤
What are these dolls?
They are BJD - ball jointed dolls. If you search Google with those keywords you will get plenty of results with companies and other info about them. This is the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball-jointed_doll. Also this LJ answers some questions too http://bjd-wtf.livejournal.com/ . If you want to learn more, I would suggest Den of Angels forum (http://www.denofangels.com/forums/).
Do you make them?
No I don't make the actual doll, I don't sculpt it. I am a customizer, I paint their faceups. I am basically a makeup artist for resin dolls. You can find the link to my commission shop

Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming3 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Fucking hate school.
English is utterly worthless, I'm a walking dictionary. And even if I weren't, we never even do anything in the class but take the same fucking vocab quizzes OVER AND OVER.
Biology wouldn't suck if the teacher wasn't such a bipolar BITCH. I actually like biology a lot, but my teacher makes me wish the subject didn't even exist. And her laugh, my GOD her laugh it gets under your skin like fingernails on a chalkboard does to some people (myself not included, I actually find the sound rather enjoyable).
Geography and Algebra are pretty dumb too, I mean come ON when an I EVER going to need to graph a parabola or know the climate region of Guatemala?! And I've already taken Geography; not like a Geography 1 and Geography 2 thing, but like FROM THE SAME BOOK WITH THE SAME TEACHER. I have nothing to say about Algebra actually, it's not super hard and the teacher is nice and cute, but the class is kind of pointless. Whatever, I'm neutral towards it.

Lets get one thing straight.
There's a lot of things wrong with the bible.
Why? Because God didn't write it. PEOPLE wrote it.
It IS the word of God (Except Genesis, Genisis is utter rubbish), but it was WRITTEN by people.
And the people who believe it and live by it word for word and letter by letter piss me off sometimes.
